Rational Resources [v1.3.1] [Apr 5, 2020]

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to have excess products of a converter be dumped automatically? I was running a hydrates splitter pre 1.2 for water for TAC LS, but now it’s making oxygen and metal ore, they gum up the system when they fill up

Yes it is possible. Add this key to each output node that you feel is appropriate. It should look like this.

  	DumpExcess = True

Actual atmosphere? No. But if you've tried mining Karbonite or Karborundum while orbiting, it's just like that.

Didn't try that, but I noticed the big scoops. How would I detect the presence of gases? Are there any science points for that? Since I prefer a realistic playing style, I probably won't use it for mining.

There's a scanner for ocean (needs to be submerged to work), for ground, and for sky/space. They are in the science category. These are in case you do have a change of heart and decide to go mining.


There is no science gain to discovering resource bands directly, but an experiment somewhat like what you describe is added to the Narrowband Scanner.

You are probably right, but i have no idea with which of my other mods it might be conflicting.

The Ore tanks seems to be fine, i have that switcher on them. its just complaining about errors when patching, but i didn't see anything seriously broken.

That's what experience told me too. I don't get it and I'm sure I fixed it. So I have no suggestions.

There is one guy on /r/ksp discord has the same problem. ConfigurableContainers modifies ore tanks and he removed it and the errors are gone

Release 1.3.1

DOWNLOAD :: GitHub :: SpaceDock

  • Added converters:
    • Carbon Extractor
    • CO2 Fuser
  • Added detection of Configurable Containers (stops the Ore tank B9PS problem for some players).
  • Enabled "dump excess" on outputs of other converters (namely: Hydrates Splitter)
  • Fixed resource definition issue with SimpleConstruction.

Having problem when RR and B9 part switch and Simple Construction are installed at the same time

No problem when only 2 of the above are installed

B9 part switch will complain:

Fatal exception while loading tank type RR_MetalOre


installed from ckan with KSP1.8.1
