comment Does Near Future Propulsion (KSP mod) get easier late game?
@Philipp Sure each engine has it's benefits but after the initial heavy lift (which can be done with almost anything) there are only 2 engines you'll ever need: the Rockmax 48-7S and the LV-N. The LV-N (nuclear) for interplanetary/orbital insertion burns, and the 48-7S for dropships. In a pinch the 48-7S can be used for interplanetary burns where the LV-N shouldn't be used in dropships because of it's massive weight. That makes the LV-N possibly the 2nd best engine in the game IMHO.

@Josh Yes, I'm talking about the stock nuclear engine. What was the second best engine in the game. And is now totally nerfed.

comment Getting all weapons for 100% completion
More weapons appear in the shop. Not just those that are available but locked.

comment Getting all weapons for 100% completion
Some weapons only unlocked after certain missions. How far through have you played?

comment No option to decouple
@Philipp Is right. You can multidock post-launch (although it is basically the hardest thing to do in the entire game). In the VAB multidocking (looping as Aaganrmu calls it) is impossible.

comment When using Deadly Re-entry, how can I add heat shielding to unshielded parts?
I'm no DR expert but I assume you could place your airbrakes on the top side of your wings to use the the wings as heat shields. When you slow enough for atmospheric flight the angle of attack would decrease sufficiently to use the airbrakes.

comment How often do “Something Happened” slot machines appear?
Sometimes I can't cancel it. Eg. if I don't have internet access I can't watch the video.

comment How do you aim accurately with a bow?
@IvoCoumans In outposts I can usually get an accurate estimation of the distance. Surely using the reflex scope I can get some higher accuracy. Is there no information on this?

comment Does Far Cry 4 need any bandwidth?
I bought FC4 on the weekend, I don't have great internet access so I got the DVD version (3 disks!!!). After I installed it I had 3Gb worth of patches to download.

comment How do I use the throwing knives?
For PC users, throwing knives function as all throwables (eg. grenades). Equip with mouse wheel or numbers. Middle click (maybe even G) to throw.

comment Can I play my far cry 3 (Xbox 360 edition) on my laptop?
You should clarify your question before it gets closed. Are you asking about running Xbox game disks on PCs? Emulating software only? Or controller use?

comment Testing an Eve launcher on Kerbin
While this answer is technically correct, I wouldn't do it. Get MechJeb and save yourself an hour of calculations per change. MechJeb can calculate the total and per stage ΔV and the per stage min and max TWR (since it changes during use).

comment My kerbal detached from my spacecraft and is floating away?
@mbx at the time of writing I was referring to version 0.25. Now at version 0.90 Kerbals can gain experience.

comment Can I fill or empty fuel tanks in the VAB?
@LostOnTheMun If you're using the o-10 monoprop engine, BurnTogether might have used that engine and used up your monoprop.

comment Long Ship Physics Problems
@FinnRayment KSP processes the physics for each piece of the station, not the whole station as a single unit. So if forces (eg. rotation) are applied to one end the will travel along the station pushing each part in a wave. If you have reaction wheels (or RCS) on two ends movement will happen at both ends and ripple done the ship, back and forth and that's the oscillating that you're seeing.

comment Long Ship Physics Problems
@FinnRayment I was under the impression the next version was 0.28 or 0.9. I prefer vanilla as well and the only option there is make your station smaller or different shapes (eg star). FME mods normally work after upgrades or the upgraded mods are available soon after the game update. Worst case scenario, you might lose the station or the save may not be playable - thats the risk involved in playing a BETA. I've had 6 different games from different versions.

comment Reusable Goo Canisters and Jr. Science Bays
@Leify Spammable science was only around for that one release. It was the first version with science as I recall and I assume it wasn't fully developed. You can still spam science, you just have to have a science lab...
