Relay antenna not working [Cannot transmit science data using Relays]


NoobAlike

Bug Report

Reported Version: v0.2.0 (latest) | Mods: none | Can replicate without mods? Yes 
OS: Windows 10 | CPU: AMD R9 5900X | GPU: RTX 3080 FE | RAM32 GB DDR4 3600 Mhz

 

So I have two crafts side by side, one craft has x3 Communotron HG-5 attached to it, and the other has x1 RA-15 attached.

The two crafts are ~10 meters apart from each other, and are orbiting Jool, facing Kerbin directly. (Jool isn't blocking the signal)

The craft with RA-15 receives connection back to KSC, and is able to transmit data, but the craft with HG-5 is not able to, even though it's 10 meters away from another craft that has the capability.

this also occurs on Duna near the monument. i have a savefile for that: Duna Monument.json

probe core is connected to commnet and has control, but has no connection to transmit Data

EDIT: Likely caused by using a relay for commnet connection.

Using the save file supplied by  @The Space Peacock I found that retracting the transmitter on his rover actually restored communications.

Might not be the only way that this bug is occurring though.

Also struggling with this on a mission around Eve right now. The RA-15 does not seem to be functioning to pass science data. 

CommNet on the NavBall shows Full Control, but on the Research Inventory it shows NO CONNECTION. Both probes are built around a HECS2 and are unmanned.

I have this at the Jool system. Two probes in system one with an RA-15 and the other has a DTS-M1. The probe with the DTS-M1 has Full Control (i.e. Control Status: Fully Functional) but DATA in Research Inventory says "No Connection". All lines of sight look to be okay if that is even a thing in KSP 2.

I landed a rover on Tylo, when I first landed I have data transmission connection, but when I drove to the monument I lost the connection.

I have 2 RA-15 relay in the Jool system. One orbiting Jool and one orbiting Tylo. Both also don’t have data connection but controllable. Craft on kerbin orbit has data connection.

sorry for not uploading game files.

Same here. I took a science satellite for a shallow dive into Laythe's atmosphere, which was just enough to destroy its antenna, but not much else. I can still control it from another relay satellite around Jool, but I can't transmit the science.

Am I able to attach a save file to a normal reply, or can I only do that via the bug reporter?

I just tried it with newest patch, and retracting/extending communotrons did not make any difference for me

Also getting this bug. This mission I'm on is cursed, game decided suddenly that the probe was out of comm-net range despite me being just outside Kerbin's SOI, and sending this exact probe model to Gilly without ever losing control. A quicksave and quickload fixed the first issue, but then started getting the bug as per the thread. Made it all the way to Ike but the game won't let up on stopping me transmitting the data :(. Retracting/extending the antenna does nothing.
