Great mod, but since last KSP update flickering got worse even at short ranges like 30 or 50 kilometres (im using last version of Physics range extender).

That is a beautiful base.  Did you uninstall the mod including the directory it makes in gamedata?  I too had massive slowdowns on the moon but  couldn't figure out if it was this mod or something else.

As a note, could you add a "craft visible" range to increase the range at which crafts are unpacked and rendered, but not in physics (instead being on rails or stationary)? 

This could be quite far.

There's another mod that already does that.

Can this extend to the whole of Gilly?

Haha I believe PRE will not crash if you try to do it but I can tell you that KSP will freak out and the Kraken will be disturbed by your extended power.

KSP is not designed to have loaded vessels on different SOI at the same time :)

It is doable as a @Jacke pointed out other mods already are providing this.

However I think that is out of the scope of this mod, which only cares about full loaded functional vessels

That does it through a round about means.  I mean doing it by actually loading the crafts in sleep state, for closer crafts, not rendering in the playfield them to a backbuffer and inserting them  into the playfeild.

I've never experienced this bug with PRE since 1.3.1 or thereabouts, but anytime I try to launch a craft and PRE is enabled, my game immediately freezes. If I disable PRE in the settings config, everything works fine, until I activate PRE in the flight screen, then it freezes again.

 

KSP 1.8.1 

PRE 1.17

I verified my files through steam and even though PRE is the only mod I have installed, it persists.

I'm sorry I'm kinda noob

How to change the range ? I'm not seeing any GUI or something

What's default of stock range and mod's range ?

If you have installed it properly you should use the PRE icon, if you click on it you will see the UI.

I am having a bit of a nullref spam whenever a loaded vessel is in orbit around the Sun. Toggling the mod off in-game immediately stops it. Does not seem happen when in SOI of Kerbin, Mun, Minmus, or Duna (that's all I tested so far). Confirmed with a stock vessel in sandbox mode.

Currently on KSP 1.8.1 with all the DLCs. PRE 1.17.0 with another 100 different mods.

I inserted the code that keeps looping. Please let me know if I need to upload something else. Thank you!

Sadly landed vessels still explode once the game starts unpacking terrain.

I know that placing them on static objects is a workaround, but it kind of defeats the purpose of building mobile things.

Staging battles on other planets is completely out of the question this way.

Is there any chance to see a fix for the explody landed vessels problem?

If you are experiencing any issues I'd recommend opening an issue on the GitHub account, attaching KSP.log and clear steps to reproduce it.

As you can imagine before doing a release I perform some testing. And one of the tests that I usually do is to load and place vessels around Kerbin within 100 km range. 

Besides I also landed several vessel on the Moon using RSS within 100 km.

Everything worked as expected. None of them crashed.

I do have the same issue, when i get closer to my base on minmus they exploding, plus there was a weird issue where PRE wouldnt let me switch back to nearest objects.

Maybe it's not all PRE's fault since i have tons of mods together but eventually i fixed my issue by setting this value to FALSE;

I dont have what exactly it does but it fixed all of my issues, dont mind the low global range i increased it to 30km after finding out it wasnt the reason for switching issue.

A friend told me setting that value to false should disable PRE completely but so far it still works, i see the messages from pre coming and i can switch to any vessel in selected range without any issue.

Uhm if you set that to false then you are disabling the terrain loading, depending on the range your landed vessels might go through the ground. I will try to reproduce the issue but I will need some info about when exactly is the bug happening
