hi! i have been having mech jeb issues my superdracos pulse when i use them to manuver

You don’t want to use SuperDracos for maneuvering- they’re meant for launch aborts. MechJeb probably isn’t very good with ~5 g burns for less than 5 seconds. The intended use is the RCS thrusters on the capsule, which MechJeb will use if you haven’t staged the SuperDracos, or can be activated manually with the H key triggering forward movement.

hi! how long could i expect a burn using rcs? (in seconds and mins)

It depends on the dV required, of course, but as long as you’re just moving around in LKO it should be less than 60 seconds. If you don’t have it, KER gives a lot of information on RCS performance under the Vessel tab.

Good morning all,
Beginner player on KSP 1.10.1 I have a small problem and despite my research (perhaps incomplete), I cannot find the solution.
I have stored KSP parts in the "advanced part toolbox mode" and am delighted to be able to organize my own part layout.
Unfortunately, "OPT, Near Future Launch Vehicle and Tundra Exploration" adds a new coin icon to me every time the game is launched. So I end up with a bunch of identical parts icons.
I delete these icons every time, but nothing helps, I tried deleting them directly in "GameData / Squad / Partlist / PartCategories.cfg", but it is useless.
Is there a workaround to keep only one icon of these mods in the "advanced parts toolbox mode"?
Thank you for your advice and for taking the time to read me. Good game everyone.

            

Some  mods, like Tundra and OPT, provide their own stock custom category via a .cfg file.

If however, you then make your own custom category, or even accidentally click the little "+" symbol that now appears in the part icons, KSP will create its own custom category .cfg and copy over tyhe ones from the mods, resulting in those duplicate category icons.

The solution is to go into the GameData/Squad/PartList folder and delete the custom category .cfg file that will be there.

If you want to make your own custom categories as well as have those from Tundra and OPT and whatever other mods, then you have to keep the KSP-created .cfg and delete the ones in the mods themselves.

Ohhhhh, that's why that happened! :o

This randomly happens when I put a cargo starship on the pad. This never happens if the payload bay is empty. Here are the contents of my gamedata folder:

I'm running 1.11.1, the latest version. Any ideas as to what might be causing this or how I can fix it?  Waiting on the pad for a while stops the weird plume for some reason, but even then only sometimes. This is really confusing lol.

 

The plume seems to be originating from the Superheavy booster. When it separates the plume either stops or stays "attached" to the booster.

Thank you very much, I didn't know you could delete .cfg files from a mod. Thank you for taking the trouble to take my problem into account.

I guess a mod adds the smoke but I have no clue which mod causes this. Your install is too big for me to troubleshoot.

I'm pretty sure those smoke effects originate from DestructionEffects. What you can do about them, I have no idea.

By the way, is there any plans to add fueltank version of cargo starship superheavy? Also it would be nice to have a docking port/hatch on cargo version as well.

Are there any mods that add a docking port wide enough to dock with the bottom of the MK4 starship? if not can I put in a request for there to be one?

The bottoms of the starships already dock together :)

I'm aware of that, but I want to have dockable addons, such as a nuclear tug or a habitation ring, etc. the only way I can see of doing this is using the SH's decoupler, but then it wouldn't be able to redock to the addon craft.

Destruction Effects is what causes the plume. The only solution I can think of is to uninstall that mod.

have you made sure that the toggle for pitch, yaw, and roll are active on the rear flaps?

yeah, there are 100% active, the top fins work fine just the rear ones don't react at all to input

I notice that you have HabTech twice in your install, one of which is the entire github entry. Also I see a GameData folder inside your Gamedata folder? Please make sure your install is correct. Apart from your PC specs I suspect something is really broken in your install. You should really pay good attention how you install the mods. Please read this:

Does someone have a reentry landing script for Starship? I can't get it to land on target, I'm too dumb. Mind sharing yours if you have one?

I could write my own one, although I've never made one ever... so that's why I'm asking first...

Thank you guys!

Marlin 1C

Will it have a variant switch between 1.25m (Mothra) and Compact (Bagorah 9) versions, or will those be separate parts?
