So it's nothing to worry about?

Nope. Mod works fine; used it myself just this afternoon...

Hi!

Haven't messed with this in a long time.

Can someone tell me what the T-Start parameter in the part menu does?

You could start by reading through the OP and read back one page to see if any of those apply to you. Explosions are common for a variety of reasons. Warp speed is dangerous

First bit of advice I can give is to check what's going on with your EC as you activate the drive. If you run out of power with the drive running, you will be spaghettifying your ship today.  On a similar line, if you try to run the exotic matter generator at the same time you're trying to use the drive, you will be spaghettifying your ship today.

Without seeing your craft, I'd be hard-pressed to give you specific advice. General advice here.

We can't see the pics on your PC. You'll need to upload them to a sharing service such as Imgur.com and use the link they provide in your posts here.

Alright...so, you've got some non-standard parts there below the Alcubierre Drive; can you tell me what those are? A screenshot of the craft on the launch pad with the resources tab open would also be helpful.

Assuming everything aft of the Drive is straight-up booster, my question becomes - what are you doing as far as power generation is concerned? If there's any power production (panels, fuel cells, etc.), it's not immediately obvious.

Corollary question - do you have Far Future Technologies, Near Future Electrical, Kolony Tools or DSEVUtils installed? Those four mods have a bearing on power requirements for the Drive.

Fixed, had no power...thanks for the tip about the EC

No problem; I strongly suspected that's what the issue was from the screenie.

The 2.5m engine needs quite a bit - a little over 90/s with stock power, or 2250/s if you've got any of the four mods I mentioned in the previous post. Firmly in the center of the five available engines in the mod power-wise.

Hey, I'm having a problem with this mod.  It appears that the (invisible) bubble seems to be causing drag and other aero effects that make it impossible to use it on my spaceplanes since it HAS to be fairly centered so all parts fit within the bubble.  Is this a known issue? Is there a workaround? Am I just doing it wrong?

I'm running KSP 1.6.1

Here's a screenshot of my gamedata folder  https://imgur.com/a/wCKuPoX
Here's the craft file(s) with and without the warp drive https://www.dropbox.com/s/30uq97ldmnqf9ak/upload.rar?dl=0

 

Without the Warp drive it flies like a dream, but with the drive it's impossible to control (seems to be aerodynamically unstable) and can't seem to accelerate nearly as well.
