comment Is there any advantage in buying a Sidewinder for 32k when you have one for free?
The modules that come with your ship when you buy it are 'loaned', so you don't get any money for selling them.

comment Will higher grade thrusters have any effect if my ship is already below the optimal weight of my current thrusters?
The word "optimal" is misleading. It should be called something more like "calibrated" mass.

comment How can I effectively approach stationary targets in supercruise?
I've heard it said that overshooting can be faster if done right. But it seems quite difficult to measure how much this is actually the case, versus being slower because you did it slightly wrong. I'd be interested to run the experiment, but it seems hard to reliably create a reproducible scenario to test.

comment Why my basic pulse laser don't work?
I saw a video of this bug today: The lasers get a little light source on them, there is the sound of a laser firing, but no beam (or damage) is visible.

I've been playing over a decade, with spoilers, and I've still never ascended. Luckily, I still LOVE IT TO DEATH!

comment Do plugins for Kerbal Space Program work on unix?
IDEs don't compile things. Compilers do. That's what counts.

comment Do plugins for Kerbal Space Program work on unix?
@ToxicFrog Hey. Thanks for the answer! Perhaps to make it most generic, show it as "'KPSINSTALLDIR/GameData/...' (where KSPINSTALLDIR is '~/.local/share/Steam/SteamApps/common/Kerbal Space Program' on Steam, or '~' otherwise)"

@IlmariKaronen Is that so? I did not realise any of that, silly me. Thanks!

comment How do I find diamonds?
The technique of blocking or removing source blocks of water to provide easier passage is a good one, but for the idea that the water in some way mined out the tunnel, I'd have to say 'citation needed' - I don't think Minecraft cave generation works this way.

comment How do I find diamonds?
I think @Cyclops' point is a good one, but I guess the advantage of caves is that they expose large surface areas to your view without you having to do any digging, and you have to combine that insight with the knowledge that diamonds only occur <= 16 altitude, and therefore look for caves that go right down near the bedrock. This is obviously hard to predict from the entrance of the cave - you've just go to explore them all.

comment When is tripe safe to eat?
If you have any other source of food, tripe is worth saving because you can feed it to dogs to make them tame and turn them into a pet. Useful if you lose your pet early on and need a replacement.
