I noticed in the video that while accelerating your rover pitches forward a bit. Not sure if you have tried this or not, but you might consider re-mapping the rover controls. The default rover controls are the same keys as the rotation (WSAD). By default, when you want to 'drive forward' it also pitches your rover forward. By re-mapping your rover controls to different keys, you retain the pitch controls of WSAD, but can use different keys to control the wheels. I think one setup I use is to re-map the rover controls to the translation keys (HNIJKL). Something to consider..

EVA construction is allowed. However, any parts you add also need to be flown from KSC to your rover, teleporting parts to your rover is not allowed. I could make a clearer ruling if you gave more information on what you would like to do. Here's a few examples- Your science parts or solar panels are not ideally located (taking damage..). You could use EVA construction to relocate those parts to another location on your rover. You could even add additional solar panels to your rover. However, any additional parts would need to be flown from KSC to your rover. You can't just teleport parts to your rover.. If possible, give a specific example of what you would like to do, and I can hopefully give you a better answer. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
