Does this mean that the game no longer deletes incompatible vessels upon loading? Or was that a fix for the VAB+SPH?

It will still delete them if it can't load them. (missing parts, etc).

Not sure what bug you are referring to there. Do you have the bug number?

Can this parameter be tied to a floatcurve (like atmospheric pressure)?

Cool beans. Thanks for the fixes as always. 

(PS, when are we gonna get structural adapter parts to go between 1.8m and 1.2m+2.5m? :P)

Is it possible to at least choose delete or quit immediately? We probably don't expect a problem and would like chance to fix our install without digging out backups...

It has always been possible to kill the KSP session without losing your game save data.  That has not changed.  If you go through the menu system to exit the game it will save the changes... so just force kill the app.

Edit:  In light of JPLRepo's response, killing the app is no longer necessary

That is exactly what the new behavior is. You are given a warning before it loads the save... so you can choose to continue or not.

Is there a reason the game can't just not load the vessel, but keep it in the file?

@JPLRepo suggestion - perhaps when KSP releases an update the release notes could include a small notice to not bother modders with the inevitable 'is this mod working in KSP'

The reason I propose this is it took less than an hour after release was up on steam before Kerbal Konstructs got the gold medal for being the first mod thread to mention KSP v1.4.5 .... BD Armory came in a close second at just over an hour and a half

Just a thought :)

Okay.  Let's sit back for a few, and wait for the dust to settle.  Fingers crossed that this is the update I've been waiting for.

When 1.4.6??? :D

That would be a new record for patches if it happens! Currently we're tied with 1.0.5 and 0.8.5.

Currently its a simple scale from the request, if your looking for an atmospheric curve model check out RealPlume

Still no fix for Joysticks on Linux? I really want to upgrade, but I can't stand playing without my joystick!

What really burns me is that I have paid twice for Making History Expansion, on Steam and through the KSP Store, and I can't enjoy it thanks to the broken joystick code.

I was referring to the one that happens at launch. I’ll have to test and see if it’s still there
