I need some more information - you shouldn't be seeing TBD with the Orbit mission? Could you please screenshot the contract that's causing an issue (I don't think a log will be helpful in this case)

Actually, nevermind! I downloaded the latest version manually through Github and used the compatibility override, that made it work. :D

I'm a bit confused about the Agena. The mission 'launch a target buoy for future missions' is no longer available, from what I figure, so am I correct in assuming that just docking any two random ships in orbit will complete the 'orbital experiments' mission and create Agena?

It's been a little while since I've looked at this (real life getting in the way) - but I'm fairly certain that contract doesn't work right now. In theory yes just completing a docking in orbit of Kerbin should complete it. If that doesn't do it then cheat complete the contract until I can get around to fixing it.

Yup, it doesn't. I launched a ship called Agena and docked to it, no joy.  Cheats ahoy )

It would be lovely to see it working again one day. Gonna sub here.

i'm having the same problem, how can i cheat the mission?

Perform a rendezvous (the mission will keep coming back if you haven't) - then press Mod-F12 (if you are on Windows, Mod is Alt, otherwise it's right shift) - go to Contracts>Active and click complete.

Agena is created when you perform a rendezvous. That contract needs a rework anyway, as it's possible to get it into an unworkable state if you perform a rendezvous without a docking, but the current completion path is Rendezvous two vessels > Immediately dock them.

Is this bug still a thing? I think I've gotten my save into this state...

EDIT: Whoops, I started from the beginning of the thread and didn't realize this is what all the most recent posts are about...I will just use the cheat menu to complete the contract and move on. Thank you for your time.

I still need to fix it :D I keep telling myself I'll do all these things I keep putting off when 1.12 happens. Let's see.

I can confirm the same issue as Bombaatu - "Do Some Science!" not counting your first launch, but I can also add that it will count the second launch you do in that game, so hopefully that gives some direction on what it might be.

I can grab logs if you need, but if not I was just gonna continue with my game right now.

If Bombaatu still wants to know, and if severedsolo feels like checking it out and seeing about a fix, I think Kerbal Construction Time causes an issue with the "Do Some Science!" contract. I was having the same issue as Bombaatu, but uninstalled KCT earlier for unrelated reasons, and now the contract completes upon launch.

My thought is that maybe the issue is coming from KCT intercepting the launch button to start its building mechanic, so that maybe Exploration Plus is detecting that you've "launched" a mission, but then you don't actually go to the flight scene, and press a second "launch" button through KCT once the build is done.

Perhaps this is an intended behavior of the mod, but i have encountered a problem with Manned Landing and Return mission generation.

After I had completed the Mun contracts related to Flybying, Orbiting and Landing, the contracts for Manned Orbiting and Landing appeared. As I had no more contract space at the time, I was only able to choose the Mun Orbit and return contract, but after I had completed said contract the Manned Mun landing contract disappeared, never to be seen again.

Is this an intended feature of the mod? The condition for the manned landing contracts stipulate that you have had to have landed on a celestial body but not returned from it. Perhaps completing the manned orbit and return contract invalidated the manned landing one?

Yes, it works just fine with mods like PBC.

The only issue with PBC is that PBC has its own contracts for the early game, so sometimes you'll get multiple contracts offered with similar goals in the early game, e.g. two contracts to reach space, or two contracts to reach orbit. Not a problem itself, it just means easier access to cash and reputation at the start of the game.

With starting 25k money and max contract 2*, 1**, 0***, there is no way to do the first contract to Do Some Science.

To grind enough money to upgrade mission control building you will probably have to launch something, and this will make the first contract unobtainable. 

Solution: lower star rating of some starting Exploration Plus contracts or adjust max contract counts for lvl 1 mission control.

when played with GPP now, instead of "Orbit Gael" it says "Orbit Kerbin". Is that a problem? can it cause problems in the future? in my last playthrough it said "orbit gael". Now every gael mission have the word Gael replaced for Kerbin.

Ive seen playthroughts with PBC and this and the PBC contracts dont show up at all so Im wondering whats going on
EDIT: I see settings thing missed that
