Why is my Navball's Delta v bar red

Question

Hello everyone,

after a few months I have recently started playing KSP again and for the first time I have now decided to deal with interplanetary spaceflight that goes beyond Eve and Duna. For that I now first used the Nerv engines as they are so efficient.

I have built a few in my opinion quite nice spacecrafts after watching many videos on youtube and I successfully landed on Dres and even Moho already (without returning though). However during these missions and also my current mission to Moho with a new or modified spacecraft I ran into a problem that didn't seem to occur in the videos I've seen. I don't know if it's somehow caused by the Nerv engines or whatever but whenever I set a maneuver,  no matter how big it is, the curved Delta v bar to the right of the navball is completely or half red and the estimated burn time is completely wrong aswell. When I start my burns at about half the time to the maneuver as the estimated burn time so that the burn splits into 2 equal sections before and after the maneuver node, my resulting orbit is quickly WAY off the planned one.

I didn't find out how to add screenshots but my burn is about 600 delta v and I have about 7000 with my current spacecraft.

 

Does anyone know what's the reason for this .... bug? This way I can't go to Moho or at least it's never as efficient as in the videos I've watched.... annoying

Nerv engines don't seem to play nice with the new DeltaV burn time bar implemented last patch.

(Specifically multiple Nervs I think? you might be alright with just one.)

I'd wager a hotfix is incoming soonish.

I went back to version 1.4.5 and rebuilt my spacecraft, everything seems to work out without a problem there so it has to he because of the version.

Thanks for the information !
