    I tried to look at the code of LO to see how you look for the "night" cubemap and the only thing I found was this:

    The code was written by @nodrog6 a long time ago, I only make sure it's compatible with latest KSP.

    I have an idea of how to fix that, is it fine for you if I send you a PR on github?

    Merged your PR.

    if your game has per-part G-force limits enabled, your ship WILL explode when warp is activated!

    Yep, and if you enable the option that enables G-force limit to kerbals they'll suffer too. This happens because speed changes dramatically from almost zero to speed of light and KSP thinks that acceleration was huge. I dunno if I can change something about it, so I recommend disabling all acceleration related options.

    the graphical effects are stuck when in ship view even when warp is deactivated

    And that's definitely needs to be checked, graphical effects are for sure disabled if you're in map view or flight view, but I did not check IVA though.

    I found this a few weeks ago, it's a nifty mod, as it includes stuff which would otherwise require using several different mods.

    Yeah, when I first encountered Kartographer it was da best, cause it had all I needed in one place. However as time passes by, many other mods with same and improved functionality appear. As I mentioned it just now in Haystack Continued thread:

    One little cool thing Precise Node has, which could be nice to add, is the ability to write  the prograde/normal/radial values of the nodes

    There're lot of things that may be improved in Kartographer, but I dunno when I'll have the time to do all the things I want to improve. Anyway your wish is noted as I find this feature really handy too.

    you should have a page "Haystack continued revived" 

    We already have too many "continued"s


    We also have "revived"s, "revisited"s and even one "retextured". So I do not see any need for one more "continued continued". That's why new Kartographer thread is not "continued", but just Kartographer. At the times Kartographer was dead, Haystack proved to be really handy replacement to Kartographer's "Vessel Select", now as I overtook Kartographer support I see all disadvantages of Vessel Select compared to Haystack. And I'm facing dilemma: either improve Vessel Select or just stick with recompiled Haystack.

    Given Doom was released in '93, wouldn't call it much of a test.

    Yeah, a little bit modded version of 93 game...just a little :D

    Like almost every video game ever

    And some games do not even start in single core processors (google for Mass Effect single core patches), but who cares, we're in KSP.

    Out of curiosity have you maxed your Delta Physics time in game options?

    I use default values that come with "vanilla"  game.

    Helps a lot with high CPU load

    Thanks for advice, will try that.

    But now it's time for Quantum Break :D

    A desktop with the same hardware/specs would perform better than that laptop. Which is what I'm saying; the hardware isn't the issue, it's the form factor it's been forced to fit into, which leaves no room for proper cooling.

    We're not discussing desktop vs laptop, we're discussing KSP vs performance :D

    the CPU isn't that big of an upgrade

    From 2 core to 4 core, yeah, just a tiny one :D

    Laptops in general are poor for gaming as they tend to under perform compared to their stats due to heat issues/build up of lint and such inside. Try blowing it out with compressed air or getting a "cooling stand" for it.

    Lol, it's only two days out of shop, it has HQ processor (google it) and not M GPU (google it). It's runs DOOM® at ultra with 60 fps without cooling stand and "blowing" :D. So it's not hardware that I'm concerned about.

    I've played KSP from the time before the Mun was even in the game to now and I've done it all on the same machine. KSP's performance is vastly, vastly, vastly, vastly, vastly better than it used to be

    Yeah, I performed propulsive Duna landing back in the days when there even was now maneuver planning (added in 0.18) and I remember that trying to quickload crashed the game constantly, now it's not, well quite an improvement :D

    Also, this part of the forum is for unmodded installs...

    Yeeeeah, I'll conduct an experiment. Here's my career save .loadmeta:

    saveMD5 = 31aa33bae5342fca826f38a87130412a
    vesselCount = 33
    UT = 1492190.6594925229
    gameMode = CAREER
    gameNull = False
    gameCompatible = True
    funds = 30756953.844446316
    science = 1772
    reputationPercent = 86
    ongoingContracts = 32
    saveMD5 = 31aa33bae5342fca826f38a87130412a

    Overall 33 ships, this unclude 1 ship on it's way to Duna, Kerbin Space Station, Mun Space Station, Minmus Space Station, Munar Base (dozen of vessels landed nearby), Minmus Base (dozen of vessels landed nearby), few vessels in Mun-Kerbin and Minmus-Kerbin transits.

    I'll start a new career game (so contract system and R&D will not be idle) on a clean (just right out of steam) unmodded game, with the only mod installed: ShowFPS, to track performance.

    Goal: mimic my career save in a number of vessels and their placement, but on a completely unmodded game.

    therefore mods never cause performance problems in the flight scene?

    That's what I'm talking about! Even absolutely vanilla game starts to slowdown as soon as you have dozen of flights in progress. Start new save, launch a vessel, everything is bright and shiny. Play a little, reach "10 flights in progress" mark, things are getting slower. Play more, reach "20 flights in progress" mark, land four 20-30 part vessels in the same spot and.... 13 FPS... have fun.

    I played vanilla game for a few days long time ago (even no KER or MJ for deltaV readouts) and always encountered performance issues. Back at that days I thought it's caused by potato laptop. I was wrong.

    in an ideal world, the gaming laptop should vastly outperform the older one

    So having a 25% increase in framerate with a processor that is 25% faster seems ... reasonable?

    3 hours ago, DoctorDavinci said:

    Sounds logical to me

    25% increased CPU speed = 25% increased framerate? Are you serious?

    15 minutes ago, HebaruSan said:

    Find some forum threads complaining about framerates for KSP 1.0

    Yeah yeah, I've played version 1.0.5 that crashed every five minutes and performed like "HEEEY! Look! My year 2003 PC is able to start Crysis"

    16 minutes ago, HebaruSan said:

    Nobody would have dreamed of the FPS you're getting on your munbase back then.

    Aha, we had a performance boost in version 1.2 caused by Unity upgrade I remember that too.

    22 minutes ago, HebaruSan said:

     We almost certainly have performance problems today caused by mods

    Aaaaah, now I seeee, that all nasty mods are the cause of 120 FPS in VAB...



    Or maybe it's VSync and 120 Hz monitor refresh rate...

    I'm confused :D

  10. HP Probook: Core i5-4200M 2.5 GHz, 8 gigs of RAM, Intel HD 4000

    KSP 1.3.1 with 185 mods installed, Munar base with dozen of vessels landed:


    10 FPS and 38% physical ratio.


    ASUS ROG Strix: Core i7-7700HQ 2.8 Ghz, 16 gigs of RAM, Nvidia GTX 1070:

    Same setup, same number of mods, same save file, same scene:


    13 FPS, 50% physical ratio.

    Why? Whyyyy? WHYYYYY? Why this game has zero optimization?

    Also, do you know what might be causing the texture degradation on the emblem and stars?

    Hey, man! Glad to see you're working on porting your suit pack to TRR. I love it a lot, I still use original TR with my KSP 1.3.1 and I used ImageMagick to convert textures from your pack to DDS. Looks like this degradation is caused by DDS compression:



    versus compressed:


    I think not much can be done with it, as TR (and TRR) will convert original PNG to DDS anyway.

    Edit: it's not that noticable in the game however
