Any mods to get probe control back?

Question

On my mission to Jool I mistakenly forgot to rotate the probe and my battery died. I simply quickloaded to when I had control, then stupidly disabled electric charge and then quicksaved. Are there any mods that allow me to override the dead probe and get control back? Either that, or is there a way I could do it myself? I'm just too lazy to wait for another launch window and go as far as I have. ;.;

Alternately, just use the Alt-F12 cheat menu & select "unlimited electric" from the cheat menu.  It should allow you to regain control to turn you battery on, then toggle the cheat off.

If you can edit your quicksave.sfs (it's in your saves\nameofyourworld\ directory, but do make a backup copy of the original file first), look for the following lines in succession: a VESSEL line followed closely by a "name = nameofyourvessel".

Then search further down (within that VESSEL) for a line "name = ElectricCharge" closely following a RESOURCE line.  Set the amount to the same value as the maxAmount and "set flowState = True".

Save the file.  Reload KSP and then F9 to reload your quicksave.

If you have any doubts whilst following these rather off-the-cuff instructions, hold off.

Thanks, I don't know how I didn't think of that. :confused:

Thanks, I'll try this if cheats don't work.
