    This link should be definitely removed from OP. Ion engines are not supported by RO (unless you want to leave your PC for weeks to complete the burn).

    I've forgotten to say it before: yes definitely you should use 64 bit build because 32 bit version is not able to use more than 3,5 GB of RAM so your game will crash very regularly. It's not mentioned in the OP because it is obvious for almost every KSP player. Also I've heard something that CKAN always automatically launches 32-bit version of KSP - I'm not sure if this is true (I don't use CKAN at all) - so just make sure that you're not in 32 bit mode because yor game was launched by CKAN.

    I've installed 1.0.5 compatible version from here: - Frizzank's Aeronautics and Space Administration most of the parts should work fine, at least engines, landing legs may not work at all.

    I mean 1.1.2 KSP with RO, recommended and required mods and with FASA installed. I think it's obvious that the craft with FASA in the title won't work without FASA. I didn't even know that FASA wasn't updated to 1.1.2, I only tested a couple of my rockets with various parts from FASA (engines, probe cores) and they work fine.

    Click "Load" and tell me what are the names of parts you are missing - they should be listed in the window which appears after loading the locked vessel. How much memory do you have? Even 8 GB of RAM may be not enough in some cases. They work fine on my install. They can't be removed by RO, but you can do this manually.
  6. A shout out to Rseferino.

    His best videos (in my opinion): 1. Apollo 20 2. Ares Mission to Mars 3. Manned Venus Flyby (poor video quality but the music is excellent) 4. Skylab 5. Orion (remastered)
  7. Polikarpov Po-2 The Polikarpov Po-2 (also U-2) served as a general-purpose Soviet biplane, nicknamed Kukuruznik (Russian: Кукурузник, from Russian "kukuruza" (кукуруза) for maize; thus, "maize duster" or "crop duster"), NATO reporting name "Mule". The reliable, uncomplicated concept of the Po-2's design made it an ideal training aircraft, as well as doubling as a low-cost ground attack, aerial reconnaissance, psychological warfare and liaison aircraft during war, proved to be one of the most versatile light combat types to be built in the Soviet Union. As of 1978 it remained in production for a longer period of time than any other Soviet-era aircraft. From the beginning, the U-2 became the basic Soviet civil and military trainer aircraft, mass-produced in a "Red Flyer" factory near Moscow. It was also used for transport, and as a military liaison aircraft, due to its STOL capabilities. Also from the beginning it was produced in an agricultural aircraft variant, what earned it its nickname Kukuruznik. Although entirely outclassed by contemporary aircraft, the Kukuruznik served extensively on the Eastern Front in World War II, primarily as a liaison, medevac and general supply aircraft. It was especially useful for supplying Soviet partisans behind the front line. Manufacturing of the Po-2 in the USSR ceased in 1949, but until 1959 a number were assembled in Aeroflot repair workshops. Wehrmacht troops nicknamed it Nähmaschine (sewing machine) for its rattling sound and Finnish troops called it Hermosaha (Nerve saw)[citation needed] as the Soviets flew nocturnal missions at low altitudes: the engine had a very peculiar sound, which was described as nerve-wracking, therefore the name. Luftwaffe pilots were soon given special instructions for engaging these aircraft. The material effects of these missions may be regarded as minor, but the psychological effect on German troops was noticeable. They typically attacked by surprise in the middle of the night, denying German troops sleep and keeping them on their guard, contributing to the already high stress of combat on the Eastern front. The usual tactic involved flying only a few meters above the ground, rising for the final approach, throttling back the engine and making a gliding bombing run, leaving the targeted troops with only the eerie whistling of the wind in the wings' bracing-wires as an indication of the impending attack. Luftwaffe fighters found it extremely hard to shoot down the Kukuruznik because of two main factors: the pilots flew at treetop level where they were hard to see or engage and the stall speed of both the Messerschmitt Bf 109 and the Focke-Wulf Fw 190 was similar to the U-2s maximum speed, making it difficult for the fighters to keep a Po-2 in weapons range for an adequate period of time. The success of the Soviet night harassment units inspired the Luftwaffe to set up similar Störkampfstaffel "harassment combat squadrons" on the Eastern Front using their own obsolete 1930s-era, open cockpit biplane and parasol monoplane aircraft, eventually building up to larger Nachtschlachtgruppe (night attack group) units of a few squadrons each. The U-2 became known as the aircraft used by the 588th Night Bomber Regiment, composed of an all-women pilot and ground crew complement. The unit was notorious for daring low-altitude night raids on German rear-area positions. Veteran pilots Yekaterina Ryabova and Nadezhda Popova on one occasion flew eighteen missions in a single night. The women pilots observed that the enemy suffered a further degree of demoralization simply due to their antagonists being female. As such, the pilots earned the nickname "Night Witches" (German Nachthexen, Russian Ночные Ведьмы/Nočnye Ved’my). The unit earned numerous Hero of the Soviet Union citations and dozens of Order of the Red Banner medals; most surviving pilots had flown nearly 1,000 combat missions by the end of the war and took part in the Battle of Berlin. Look at takeoff speed. 18m/s with almost empty fuel tanks! I need to note that because lack of better parts my replica uses two machine guns instead of one and an engine with cowling.
  8. Hey Carcharoth I've seen you two times today in War Thunder match
  9. Atlas V 551 is capable of sending 1500kg - 2000kg or so towards Pluto. That means Atlas V 551 could launch 3 new Horizons or more to Pluto - using Jupiter gravity assist.
  10. If SDHI uses outdated plugin - just uninstall it.
  11. Ship Escaping camera

    In my case it was Kerbpaint. Just uninstall all mods with outdated plugins.
  12. Yep - with outdated kerbpaint. One of your mods use outdated plugin.
  13. People use it for testing their build's launch profile under repeat conditions. They use it SCIENTIFICALLY.

    Where did you find that? Dmagic?
