@BadOaks That's very strange. It looks like the transition from one SOI to another is triggering a progress node event, which then triggers the contract system to refresh and it crashes on a recon contract, which goes all the way back up the chain to screw up the vessel's orbit...

I'm not sure why the error occurs on the contract, it happens more than once during a regular contract refresh, so it doesn't seem to have anything to do with the SOI transition, that's just the failure point. I'll have to install RSS and see what's happening.

It's possible to trap errors in the contract generation method, so that it at least doesn't effect everything else, but that's not the ideal way to go about it. It would be best to figure out where it's going wrong and fix the problem there.

Hey buddy (DMagic) I cant figure out what is causing this to my game

I posted this but so far it seems that when I uninstall your mod the problem solves temporarily... Let me explain, So I made a copy of the Carrier file and got DMAGIC out, now obviously most of my crafts got deleted but after deleting all the copies of each science experiments and installed DMagic orbital again, the copies appear again, in groups of 7 every time I access the save file. This also affects the stock science experiment and pretty much everything science related. Can you please help? Tell me if you need anything else.

hello peeps i'm having an issue when i want to transmit my science back to earth i can collect the science but when i pres transmit it says "no com devices on the craft unable to transmit" while i've got a 1Gm antenna on the probe 

im playing on rss, RO with al dependant mods and realism mods enabled.

So I'm having a bit of an issue, I am unable to get science for any of the experiments with your mod. Everything was working fine up to yesterday then I was unable to get anymore science. I have checked for duplicates of anything but was unable to find any. Thanks in advance for your help.

Log File (Hope it's the right one, if not please tell me which one you need and where it's at.): https://www.dropbox.com/s/wm4e43xkeo5gtbm/output_log.txt?dl=0

@Pratherdude It's hard to say with all of those mods. This kind of error is pretty much always a duplicate experiment definition hiding somewhere in the GameData folder. 

If it was working find until a certain point I would try to figure out what has changed since then. Orbital Science hasn't been changed for several weeks.

Contract Configurator seems to be having lots of science related issues with CactEye, so maybe that would be a good place to start.

@kerboman25 You are using For Science? It doesn't work at all for non-stock (or stock-alike) science experiments. You'll have to find something else or run things manually if you want to use my experiments.

I don't see anything wrong with Remote Tech, so it shouldn't be the problem. For Science is the only thing that I can see causing problems.

I should probably go ahead and list For Science as a conflict for CKAN, since there is no simple way to notify CKAN users (who may not read deep into the forum threads) that they don't work well together.

It sounds like while For Science doesn't support DMOS it also doesn't interfere with it, so it's still useful to have both installed. Listing it as conflicting in CKAN would make that impossible. I think putting an advisory in the OP would be a better solution.

I have been given a contract that I believe originates from Dmagic the contract is asking me to do a recon scan but I am unsure what part does this. Can anyone help me, please? I have been doing google searches and have even tried to use the find word to try and scan through this thread but I can't find anything this is why I am asking.

I'm getting a "Cannot collect any more experiments" messages on a magnetometer that hasn't collected any experiments at all yet. Was working yesterday, but not today. I must have messed around with my mods between now and then, as I'm putting together a new install, but I can't think what. I was trying to diagnose the problem myself, but I couldn't find anything in the log file.

Any tips on for what I should be looking? Thanks!

@cyberpunkdreams I would need to see the files to say anything for sure. If the experiment hasn't ever been run then it may be some other mod interfering. Does the same thing happen with other experiments, or with a newly launched vessel (you can run the magnetometer on the launch pad to check)?

I ran it fine on the launchpad yesterday, but couldn't run it today -- although I didn't try running it on the launchpad. Other stock experiments are fine, but I've not tried any more of yours yet. I'll load up again and give it another go. I did just notice that DMagicScienceAnimate was missing, but I don't even know if that's required as a separate mod any more, or if it comes packaged? But if that is the problem, it would be weird that it was working before and not now.

Thanks for the response!

@KoolBreeze420 What does the contract say? There are two recon telescopes included, so it presumably wants either of those, but I would need to see the exact contract text to say for sure.

It says exactly what I mentioned it say's to do a long term reconnaissance scan in the south and north, regardless I canceld that mission and just now I went to have a look for the mission details and there was another one but this time it listed the part that is needed for a recon scan and they are the little brother surveillance camera or the large one.

I'm trying to find a way to edit the cost of a few of the parts to make them more reasonable in my opinion.  I changed the "cost" value in a few of the CFGs with no luck.  It worked for other parts so what am I missing?  I'm in a career mode with the parts unlocked, the Universal Storage Goo and Materials Bay are the two I was trying to change first.

I just compared the Goo bay with the Squad Goo.  I changed the cost and mass of both.  Squad's changed, but only the mass of the DMagic changed.  I attempted to change the ASERT and USASERT costs as well with no change.  The 8000 and 8500 costs for those parts are not even in the CFG file so I must have missed something.

@eaglepilot7ac Something else is probably changing the costs with Module Manager. If you have the Community Tech Tree then there is a file in the Resource folder of Orbital Science that adjusts the cost of many parts.

Other mods might have their own MM patches to change those values. Your best bet is to make MM patches for yourself and put the :FINAL tag at the end of each patch:

@PART[dmUSGoo]:FINAL
{
	@entryCost = 10000
	@cost = 8000
}

It looks like that will probably be my fix.  I'll give that a try tonight.  Appreciate your help and work!

I'm having a weird bug that seems to be spamming me with contracts from this mod.

It's worst when in-flight (pictured below), but even at the space centre I normally have at least 4 or 5 duplicate Orbital Science contracts. They normally seem to be for a body I've not visited yet, and for some reason I can neither accept them nor decline them.

I'm running way too many mods and getting a lot of lag (no idea if it's related to the contract issue or not. It's very slow troubleshooting a game that takes 20min to launch), so presumably this is some weird conflict?
