Orange suits in 1.7.3

Recommended Posts

Can anyone get the 4 veteran kerbals to wear their orange suits on EVA? I'm trying in a vanilla (stock, no DLC) 1.7.3, but can't get it to work. They do have their orange suits on in IVA, but they turn white as soon as they exit the craft. Wandering if it's on my end or a bug... Let me know in case I need to file one.

So Jeb, Bill, Bob and Val all have an orange suit on when they go out on EVA (without making history or breaking ground)?

No, the orange suits were always IVA only, not EVA.  The new breaking ground sci-fi suits ARE orange on EVA for the vets

it makes sense, if you look at any EVA suit made by NASA, they are all white. White was mainly chosen to disperse heat from the Sun to try and mitigate overheating, and it is also easy to see while in Space, meaning that the other astronauts can see the person on EVA more easily.

Thanks for clearing that up! I was under the impression that the vanilla EVA space suits were orange as well... false memory is a pain.
