[1.3.1/1.4.5/1.5.1/1.6.0] KSP Interstellar Extended 1.20.16 Support Thread

Recommended Posts

There are four graphical/description bugs. I play on sandbox 1.4.2 with latest KSPI and dozen of mods.

1.

Interstellar Thermal Mechanic Helper shows, that Plasma Jet Magneto Inertial Fusion reactor produces 5 MW of power. But reactors tooltip show max power of 5000 MW.

2.

Magnetohydrodynamic electric generator has wrong description.

Are energy conversion efficiencies (65% - 80%) right?

9WinBeP.jpg

 

3.

Magnetic Nozzle looks much differently than its icon.

vQLpcM8.jpg

 

4.

TORY nuclear ramjet engine connection point has different size in GUI than its true size.

That is its listed as 2.5m but its 1.25m actually.

OcoP9J1.jpg

 

I have suggestion:

Can beam transmitters have their beam wavelength sorted from longest wave to shortest wave?

Currently wavelengths are placed randomly in descriptions.

 

Reactors could show reaction products too.

 

Solid Fuel reactor doesn't produce electricity as if internal generator was broken.

itY8jN9.jpgTiM1sBe.jpg

What is difference between two fuel modes for this reactor?

Also it has power control twice.

 

When cold batch temperature of thermal generators rise above reactors temperature (can happen with solid fuel and molten salt reactors) reactor starts to flicker.

Except for a spawing of exception, I'm Not sure what was going wrong, but to help you I will improve the Kerbstein Gui in the VAB in the next release

pjXRo5v.png

As you can see, it will list all upgrade tech and show if you have actually unlock it or not.

If you have any suggestions on how to improve the display further  I would like to hear it

hm. did something change from the previous release (the one where my kerbsteins were giving me 4G accel) though?  ie, is the thrust lower or the weight perhaps higher?  a 30m tweakscaled kerbstein weighs something like 1100t just by itself, I don't remember what it was before.. all I know is the TWR is far, far lower now, even on the same exact craft.  I haven't tried with the one you JUST released; will do that and report back.

Not sure how you calculate the Acceleration but 787000 kN at a mass of  4409 ton sound quit good

Notice that during flight I disable G-force effects to allow it to accelerate durring time warp while under acceleration.

possibly quite good, but not nearly as good as it *was* ... 5500t pushing at 4G would be, what, around 220000kN of force.  If the nerf is intentional, that's fine, I'll figure out a new design, I'm just thinking that from what you said, the nerf wasn't intentional and may be a bug somewhere.  Please advise :)

Well there was a bug where the 8th and 9th tech level were effectively the same, but I don't think that was it. Exactly what included in the 5500t. If it include power generators, it might be an explanation as they become  heavier in some cases.

Another problem is the Kerbstein wasteheat generation.  Almost any amount of throttle is enough to go from 0 to full wasteheat near-instantaneously and that's with 4 extremely large folding radiators on it... I don't think the KSP physics engine will even allow me to build a craft that has room for enough radiators to drive a single Kerbstein at 30m much less the 20 of them that's required for sufficient acceleration... I don't know what to say, this engine is no longer usable for me... this test craft is basically an enormous 30m kerbstein, the fuel for it, a command pod, and little else.. it weighs like 8000t now (I only had a 20m on there before, the 30m scales up in weight in a serious way!)... 

EDIT: Since the positron antimatter reactor doesn't generate power with a charged particle generator, and since I need a charged particle generator to power the warp drive, I have a plasma beam core reactor with a charged particle generator powering this ship... 7.50m radius on both.  I use detachable positron-antimatter boosters to get it to space.  Once in space, the hyperdrive is usable, but the sublight kerbstein engine has a max thrust of < 1.0 m/s/s and overheats as soon as I put power to it, even though this thing is covered with enormous radiators.

EDIT: So I tried going back to Plasma Nozzles, which is what I used before the kerbstein was released.  These have the same wasteheat problem... in order to get enough thrust, it's physically impossible to put enough radiators on the craft to keep them cool enough to operate.

EDIT: If I use a fusion reactor instead of the plasma beam core, the heating problem isn't really an issue... maybe something's just wrong with the plasma beam core heat generation(?) ... Kerbstein thrust is still an issue, though.. Even with a fusion (tri-alpha) reactor, if I can get theoretical max accel over 1G, the reactors aren't powerful enough to drive it at that speed.  Increasing the reactor size would of course increase the mass, and... yeah.  They just don't seem to make the thrust that they used to, for one reason or another.

Is anyone else having an issue where the game hangs up when loading, specifically when it gets to "loading partrecipe for KSPIE-VASIMIR2"?

I used EL and simple construction to build a rocket on a mun but I can't seem to make the uranium nitrite to power my reactor.

I am quit sure I have the resources I need but cant seem to figure out the IRSU process 

jVKGHJ8.png 

Ok I figured out I am mission flourite witch I found only a bit away from me now however I have every thing for uranium tetrafluoride ammonolysis but I can't find the process on any of my IRUS's where is it at and what tech tree is it in? 

-edit

After messing with every thing for over an hour I finally got it all to work. Dang is it complicated though.

@FreeThinker I just noticed something else... I have a craft with a 10m kerbstein and enough power to drive it at X m/s/s of acceleration.  If I replace the 10m kerbstein with a 7.5m kerbstein, and making no other changes, I get acceleration greater than X.  This leads me to believe that something is wrong with how this part scales, ie, the mass goes up too much for the increase in thrust when the engine is scaled up.

Hi all.

Is the KSPIE 1.18.5 compatible with KSP 1.4.2.2 ?  When I Filter (Compatible) KSPIE is not available.

I found it on CKAN, but it looks not compatible.  I know you  don't give support for CKAN, but is there something else I can check?  Or just ignore and just install manual version?

Same problem with KSP 1.4.1

this means that your CKAN thinks that one of the dependencies is not updated for 1.4.2.

thanks.  Let me check.

EDIT:That did the trick!  After checking dependencies,  I needed to update the community tech tree :)

FreeThinker could you make expanding resource containers that can hold all of the resources at one time and can be scaled to massive?  

The reason I ask is because I like a to make planetary bases but having almost 150+ different resource containers on screen at one time causes my cpu to die!

If you don't want to mix resource types maybe make four and name them some thing like 'Radio active silo' 'Gasses  silo' 'Liquid silo' 'Solid storage'.

sounds almost as if the mass decreased faster than thrust, while the opposite should be true. In the next release, scaling will be handled slightly differently, perhaps that solves it. But Exactly how do you measure acceleration?

I use MJ2, it tells you the current/max acceleration to %4.2f precision.

If your goal is to simple refuel an existing molten salt reactor, all you need is a source of enriched uranium  and an upgraded KSPI science lab in fuel reprocessing mode and it will replace the actinides by  fresh uranium tetrafluoride

A fundamental problem with scaling is that power and wasteheat scales with exponent 3 while radiator surface area only scales with exponent 2. This means the bigger and therefore more powerful your fusion engine,  the more wasteheat is produced and comparatively more radiators are required. Although I cannot solve the problem, what I can do it reduce the problem by reducing the growth factor of the wasteheat, making it grow as fast as it the engine mass which is exponent 2.5. The justification is that bigger fusion engines can be made more efficiently and therefore produce less waste heat. For consistency, I can do something similar to both power consumption and isp, which should reduce waste heat production as well

Edit: this how a fully upgraded 30 m Kerbstein will perform

There is 9 distinct radio active resources and they are all put into the one container that originally held 10k of just one resource witch would be 1111.111111111111 for each but because of the added walls such a container needs I reduced each resource by 111, thus getting  an even 1k each

@FreeThinker - that looks better.  What are you powering it with?  picture is a bit dark.. I see a tri-alpha reactor, what else is on that thing?

@Lordmaddog Understand that people that want to have multiple resources in their vessels, either use mods that allow them to customize their tank with multiple of resources or they can use  KSPIE Universal Hex storage tanks or KSPIE Universal Storage Tanks which were specifically added to allow you to handle along a multitude of resources. But perhaps there are some that don't want to bother and simply want a single tank containing everything.
