Good sir,
If it would not be too much trouble, could you please be so kind as to explain the precise meaning of the initial rotation parameter in the planet editor.  Is it still accurate?  I wonder what the initial rotation is relative to in the case of  both planets and moons, and relative to what longitudinal coordinates.
Thank You for your time,

I'm not sure what you mean by "accurate", but it certainly still works. As to what it is relative to, I'm not entirely too sure - the KSP documentation doesn't say much (actually... nothing at all), but I'm guessing it's relative to the rotation that it was modeled/created in. That, of course, doesn't make much physical sense in-game - so it's probably best to play with that parameter while actually looking at the planet, to make sure it's in the right orientation.

I know it works, I actually am not wanting to edit anything, I am actually wanting to use the data that it puts out to save me the time and trouble of gathering the data experimentally in game.   The hardest piece of the problem I am trying to solve is getting an accurate greenwich line for the various planets.  In other words the exact orientation of the planet or moon relative to Sol at time 0.  It can be gathered experimentally but due to the low resolution of the planetary textures the accuracy is  is very poor.  For example on keribin experimental data is + or - 17 seconds(I actually know the exact orientation of Kerbin at T=0)  I would expect smaller planets and moons to be better but bigger ones would be worse.

pick through this and you'll find what you need, namely the rotini value (output by KSPTOT):

; This is the file that holds information regarding the 
; solar system KSP TOT works with when performing analysis.
; You may edit this file to add, remove, or modify celestial bodies 
; in your KSP solar system.  Alternatively, with the KSPTOTConnect plugin
; installed into KSP and KSP running in the flight scene, start KSP TOT and use:
; "File" -> "Create New Bodies File from KSP"
;
; Each bodies.ini file required a body called "Sun" with all 
; zero orbital elements.
;
; Here is a breakdown of the various entries required by each body, 
; a description of the quantity, and their units:
;
; [NameOfBodyOneWord] = Name of this body, must match name field below
; epoch = Time at which the given mean anomaly applies, [sec]
; sma = Semi-major axis of the body's orbit, [km]
; ecc = Eccentricity of the body's orbit, [dimensionless]
; inc = Inclination of the body's orbit, [deg]
; raan = Right ascension of the ascending node of the body's orbit, [deg]
; arg = Argument of periapsis of the body's orbit, [deg]
; mean = Mean anomaly at the given epoch of the body's orbit, [deg]
; gm = Gravitational parameter of the body, mu, [km^3/s^2]
; radius = Radius of the body's sphere, [km]
; atmoHgt = Maximum height of the atmosphere above the surface, [km]
; atmoPressAlts = a comma separated string of altitudes that correspond to the pressures in atmoPressPresses, [km]
; atmoPressPresses = a comma separated string of pressures that correspond to the altitudes in atmoPressAlts, [kPa]
; atmoTempAlts = a comma separated string of altitudes that correspond to the temperatures in atmoTempTemps, [km]
; atmoTempTemps = a comma separated string of temperatures that correspond to the altitudes in atmoTempTemps, [K]
; atmoTempSunMultAlts = a comma separated string of altitudes that correspond to the sun mult factors in atmoTempSunMults, [km]
; atmoTempSunMults = a comma separated string of temperature sun multiplication factors corresponding to atmoTempSunMultAlts, [noUnit]
; latTempBiasLats = a comma separated string of latitudes (0-90 deg only) that correspond to the temperature latitude biases in latTempBiases, [deg]
; latTempBiases = a comma separated string of temperature latitude biases, [K]
; latTempSunMultLats = a comma separated string of latitudes (0-90 deg only) that correspond to the temperature latitude biases in latTempBiases, [deg]
; latTempSunMults = a comma separated string of temperature sun multiplication factors corresponding to latTempSunMultLats, [noUnit]
; rotperiod = Rotational period of the body, length of sidereal day [sec]
; rotini = Initial rotation about the body spin axis at given epoch [deg]
; bodycolor = string that provides the body's gradiant color scheme when 
;             rendering, see for valid  body colors (Color Map Names): 
;             https://www.mathworks.com/help/matlab/ref/colormap.html#inputarg_map
; canBeCentral = set to 1 if this body has moons/planets orbiting it or 0 if not
; canBeArriveDepart = set to 1 if this body is orbiting another body and at least 
;                     one other body also orbits the same parent body, or 0 if not
; parent = name of the parent body as shown in that body's "name" field
; parentID = Id of the parent body as shown in that body's "id" field
; name = name of this body as displayed in the software, MUST match what's in the
;        brackets [] above
; id = Id number of this body, must be a non-negative integer unique to this 
;      solar system.  Once you use an ID number once in this file, you CAN NOT
;      re-use it again or the software will get confused.

pick through this and you'll find what you need, namely the rotini value (output by KSPTOT):


; This is the file that holds information regarding the 
; solar system KSP TOT works with when performing analysis.
; You may edit this file to add, remove, or modify celestial bodies 
; in your KSP solar system.  Alternatively, with the KSPTOTConnect plugin
; installed into KSP and KSP running in the flight scene, start KSP TOT and use:
; "File" -> "Create New Bodies File from KSP"
;
; Each bodies.ini file required a body called "Sun" with all 
; zero orbital elements.
;
; Here is a breakdown of the various entries required by each body, 
; a description of the quantity, and their units:
;
; [NameOfBodyOneWord] = Name of this body, must match name field below
; epoch = Time at which the given mean anomaly applies, [sec]
; sma = Semi-major axis of the body's orbit, [km]
; ecc = Eccentricity of the body's orbit, [dimensionless]
; inc = Inclination of the body's orbit, [deg]
; raan = Right ascension of the ascending node of the body's orbit, [deg]
; arg = Argument of periapsis of the body's orbit, [deg]
; mean = Mean anomaly at the given epoch of the body's orbit, [deg]
; gm = Gravitational parameter of the body, mu, [km^3/s^2]
; radius = Radius of the body's sphere, [km]
; atmoHgt = Maximum height of the atmosphere above the surface, [km]
; atmoPressAlts = a comma separated string of altitudes that correspond to the pressures in atmoPressPresses, [km]
; atmoPressPresses = a comma separated string of pressures that correspond to the altitudes in atmoPressAlts, [kPa]
; atmoTempAlts = a comma separated string of altitudes that correspond to the temperatures in atmoTempTemps, [km]
; atmoTempTemps = a comma separated string of temperatures that correspond to the altitudes in atmoTempTemps, [K]
; atmoTempSunMultAlts = a comma separated string of altitudes that correspond to the sun mult factors in atmoTempSunMults, [km]
; atmoTempSunMults = a comma separated string of temperature sun multiplication factors corresponding to atmoTempSunMultAlts, [noUnit]
; latTempBiasLats = a comma separated string of latitudes (0-90 deg only) that correspond to the temperature latitude biases in latTempBiases, [deg]
; latTempBiases = a comma separated string of temperature latitude biases, [K]
; latTempSunMultLats = a comma separated string of latitudes (0-90 deg only) that correspond to the temperature latitude biases in latTempBiases, [deg]
; latTempSunMults = a comma separated string of temperature sun multiplication factors corresponding to latTempSunMultLats, [noUnit]
; rotperiod = Rotational period of the body, length of sidereal day [sec]
; rotini = Initial rotation about the body spin axis at given epoch [deg]
; bodycolor = string that provides the body's gradiant color scheme when 
;             rendering, see for valid  body colors (Color Map Names): 
;             https://www.mathworks.com/help/matlab/ref/colormap.html#inputarg_map
; canBeCentral = set to 1 if this body has moons/planets orbiting it or 0 if not
; canBeArriveDepart = set to 1 if this body is orbiting another body and at least 
;                     one other body also orbits the same parent body, or 0 if not
; parent = name of the parent body as shown in that body's "name" field
; parentID = Id of the parent body as shown in that body's "id" field
; name = name of this body as displayed in the software, MUST match what's in the
;        brackets [] above
; id = Id number of this body, must be a non-negative integer unique to this 
;      solar system.  Once you use an ID number once in this file, you CAN NOT
;      re-use it again or the software will get confused.
;
; For questions, post at the KSP TOT thread on the KSP Forums:

Unfortunately the parameter 

rotini = Initial rotation about the body spin axis at given epoch [deg]

Does not explain say relative to what point.  I happen to know this number is not relative to 0o 0' 0" on Duna (duna is set to 90 and Kerbin is set to 90)  BUT kerbin is rotated exactly 90 degrees from Noon( sunset),  However the sun is s at approximately (since I don't know the exact calculation hence this question) 45 degrees from noon at that same time at  0o 0' 0".   Thank You very much for the help and the file does have some other useful info that I may be able to use.

Attention Internet:

linuxgurugamer is a human who plays KSP, uses HyperEdit, and is always extremely helpful!

So, I just updated all of my mods in CKAN after not playing for about a month. Now, whenever I try to load into my research ship (300 ish part count?), it immediately explodes into dozens of sections, and kills most if not all of the crew in the resulting collision-explosions.

What would be the best way to recover the crew? I can easily build another ship, but I can't find a way to use hyperedit to land a ship that I'm not in control of, or to transfer the crew out of said ship.

Personally, I don't know of any way to do this, with or without HyperEdit.  Perhaps by editing the save file?

Just for posterity, I actually solved this pretty quickly once you mentioned editing save files. All I had to do was change situation to LANDED, change Landed to True, and set the lat/long/alt/hgt to a copy/paste of a ship I had just launched from the VAB. From the KSC view, I could click on it and recover it, instantly :D

That's great!  I'm glad it worked out for you.

Thanks for coming back here to tell us.

How would I get into geostationary orbit over the Kerbal Space Center, are the values in kilometers or meters?

I believe they are in meters, and you can find the geostationary/sync altitude for all bodies in the KSP wiki.  It is 2,863.33 km for Kerbin.

Hey there,

I somewhat recently downloaded HyperEdit, and I'm quite the fan. Overall, it's just a great tool to have in the toolkit, just for testing purposes, or you know, cheats:cool:. (An aside: the 'lock heat' seems a little wonky, it works, but it seems to lock it at max, or it still increases, instead of staying at the zero I locked it at). Anyway, I've been digging through my Player.log, which is an absolute nightmare (I have over a hundred mods installed, and it turns out, even more errors and null refs) and I found, repeatedly:

NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object
  at HyperEdit.Model.LanderAttachment.Update () [0x00000] in <filename unknown>:0 

My guess is something to do with the Ship Lander feature, which I had been using? Honestly, I don't know. The mod works very well overall, I just see that in my log a lot and I'm trying to track things down.

I'm on x64 bit Linux if it matters.

Cheers.

Of course, in order to troubleshoot, I'd advise you to try again with out any other mods and see if you get the same behavior.

Other than that, thanks for the report!  :cool:

I think this actually might be our fault and not another mod. I just uploaded HyperEdit_beta1.dll on kerbaltek.com, could you download that one (and replace HyperEdit.dll with it) and see if the NullReferenceException is fixed? I think it's due to a bug in the "land here" function, and me not updating it when I added the move-when-landing (ijkl) feature.

Will do. I take it I should then just use the "land here" function as normal, or is there something more you'd like me to try?

Yea, ya know... give it a good thrashing, then send us any pieces that come flying off.

Well, I switched out the old .dll for the new beta one, went and used HyperEdit to get into orbit and land back on KSC Runway/Launch Pad about half a dozen or so times (made sure to jiggle around a lot during landing, just in case!).
 Probably an insufficient sample size, but...I loaded my log up in sublime text and searched for "HyperEdit.Model.LanderAttachment" (the original nullref) and it came back with zero search results. If I knew the syntax for searching for multiple words together  (e.g. "HyperEdit, nullref") then I'd be 100% sure, but I'm not too worried.

I'd say that did that trick. I can upload the log for you if you want to double check, but it's a real nightmare (100+ mods and even more null refs, errors and exceptions; sublime text chugged to search through all 6.5 million lines of it and...it's apparently over 300mb big, when it's supposed be 60mb iirc...suspicious... oh well, that's for me to worry about not you:mellow:).

Well, I'd say that's case closed. Looks like I have some work to do.

Cheers!

Just came across a strange situation.  I was using Hyperedit to test a craft, and found that hyperediting a simple craft from the launchpad to an orbit would make it lose the antennas.  If I uninstall RT (was using the Comm 16), hyperedit worked properly.

The message in Flight Results is "Communotron 16 was ripped off by strong airflow"

I've contacted the RT author about this also. This only happens when RT is installed

 

More testing shows that it only happens when the antenna is extended (all extendable antennas tested)
