I was trying to use Ascent Guidance (Primer Vector Guidance model) for a high-altitude probe mission around Kerbin and the following error popped up as soon as I enabled the autopilot and while Guidance Status was still INITIALIZING: LAST FAILURE: Uncaught exception (ArgumentOutOfRangeException): Index was out of range. Must be non-negative and less than the size of the collection. Parameter Name: Index. Here are my inputs: Periapsis: 46211.055 km Apoapsis: 56938.156 km Attach Altitude (checked): 90 km Orbit Inclination: 113° Booster Pitch Start: 100 m/s Force Roll (checked): Climb: 113° Turn: 113° Alt: 75m Stop at Stage #: 3 Auto-Deploy Solar Panels unchecked Auto-Deploy Antennas unchecked This mission had a LAN specification as well and I originally tried using a Launch to LAN setting of 229.2° when I got the error message above. I then tried the same settings without using Launch to LAN and the result was identical so I don't think Launch to LAN is involved with the error.
Hey guys. I recently started RSS and in their tutorials and many other outside ones, it is said that with Ascent guidance that I need to have omit coast checked, but there's no such button in my AG window. There is a "fixed coast length" that can be ticked and a space for what I assume is time in seconds next to it, so do I leave this at 0 and/or checked or unchecked in order to have the same effect? I'm playing on KSP 1.10.1 with the latest Mechjeb 2 dev Version available for it
I have a target craft orbiting Kerbin East to West (rather than the usual West to East) and need to get another ship up to it. When I use the 'launch to target plane' function, then engage the autopilot, the game warps to the launch time, the engines activate and the throttle goes to 100%, but the vehicle doesn't leave the pad - no flames, no noise, nothing. It just sits there. MJ2 shows that it's 'launching to target plane' but nothing is happening. MJ2 works properly for the other launch options. Is this a bug? Or is there something about using this option that's different from the others? <later> Disregard ... the problem is that there's no probe control.
