Jet Engines Run Out of Air

Question

No matter which jet engine I use, they all run out of intake air so quickly, I can't even leave the ground. I have hundreds of hours in game and have made many many planes, space planes, etc. This is only a recent issue. Even community-made planes run out of intake air within seconds. These are planes that I have flown and worked perfectly before, but now all of a sudden don't any more. My builds have plenty of intakes, power, fuel, etc. Nothing is obstructing the engine or inhibiting air or fuel flow. I can see the intakes sucking in air, but when I throttle up, it's all gone in seconds. Is there some sort of bug? What is the issue?

What exactly would you like a picture of? I mean, every vessel built with a jet engine has this problem. It's not just my own builds, but ones downloaded from Steam Workshop. I have like 45 different planes/space planes I could take a picture of that worked a couple months ago and now don't.

I've just tested a range of the stock aircraft in a clean install of 1.7.2 and I am seeing no problems with air intake. Specifically the Albatross, Aeris and Gull. The trouble might be with a mod (if you use them).

Yeah, I have tried all those as well. It must be a mod. All my mods are up to date and currently work together. Maybe this is one instance where something isn't working properly.

I've moved your topic to tech support (PC modded).

One way of narrowing down the issue is to cut and paste half your mods out of the Squad gamedata folder and see if you still have the issue. Repeat until you find the culprit.

I have actually recently gone through each mod one by one, installing a mod, then loading the game, installing another mod, loading the game. I couldn't figure out where the discrepancy was. I'm sure no one can really tell me just off the top of their head what the issue is. I was hoping there was a game bug or some sort of known mod bug that was easily fixable. It may just be a case of a heavily modded game.

I would suggest to check the ModuleManager.ConfigCache. pick the stock config of an intake and compare it to the same config in the config cache (just search for the name). Probably something stands out to you like a reduced intake area.

Sounds like a recent issue with interstellar extended. Was fixed in a later update, iirc
