comment Will my parachute fail if I'm going too fast when I deploy it?
Thank you for posting this answer two years ago. But now with version 1.0 and the new aerodynamic system it seems to be quite outdated. Maybe you would like to revise it? I put a bounty of 50 points on this question.

comment How do you tell if re-entry will destroy your ship?
Speaking of service bays and drag: Good idea: Put radially-mounted parachutes into the service bay. Bad idea: closing the bay after deploying the chutes - it removes the drag of all parts rooted inside of them to 0, which includes deployed parachutes even when they visually appear to be outside. You will be missed, Valentina Kerman.

Using a service bay for any smaller parts you used to mount radially also has aerodynamical advantages during the launch. When you have them outside, they create quite a lot of drag which costs you vital delta-v. I was able to significantly increase the performance of a rocket by moving radially-mounted batteries and science parts into a service bay.

comment How do you tell if re-entry will destroy your ship?
I had a 1.25m ship with a 1.25m heat-shield and radially-mounted OX-STAT panels return directly from Mun at >3000m/s. The panels survived. However, I got in quite flat and opened the parachute as early as possible. The heat-shield didn't even lose ablation material.

comment Lock up in space plane hangar issue
You could try to save the plane, go back to the space center, click the runway and select the saved plane to launch.

You mean the plane doesn't fly? Do you have air intakes on the plane? Jet engines require intake air to fly.

comment How can I get a pod back from orbit when it's out of fuel?
@Flater Just confirmed with the new version 1.0 that EVA propellant is not taken from the monopropellant of the pod. I checked it by going on an EVA, flying around a bit, and returning. After repeating this three times, the monopropellant amount of the pod was still 10.0/10.0 afterwards.

@Flater AFAIK the "mono-propellant" carried by most command modules and the "EVA fuel" the cerbonauts use are two separate resources.

comment Foreigner son-in-law went on a killing spree, then formed a militia just to stand around for awhile… did I miss something?
Characters with the "Become Spymaster" ambition will often try to get the job through klingon promotion and murder the spymaster of their liege. That might explain why he killed each of your wifes after you made her your spymaster.

comment What does a person's death caused by assassination without your knowledge look like to you?
I think you misunderstood me. I mean "[Character] died under mysterious circumstances" was literally the message I received.

So the bug is in because of the conveyors, not the assemblers?

I also had some very important people (like claimants in a press-claim war) die "under mysterious circumstances" which is quite obviously a plot-murder.
