Ore is a resource added in 1.0. It is obtained by mining. It is the only resource which is by default not loaded into the containers.
What is ore used for KSP?
The ore has no serious financial value, but can be used to produce fuel with a converter and vast amount of electricity. These tanks store the ore temporarily from extraction until conversion. Ore tanks were introduced in version 1.0.
How much does ore weigh KSP?
When completely filled with ore, the Large Holding Tank will have a mass of 17 tons, as each unit of ore weighs 10 kg per unit.
Does ore run out KSP?
No and probably, respectively. As Veltrop said, moons and planets have infinite ore…but they have it at low and varied densities. You should consider putting a scanner and wheels on it so you can move around finding better spots.
How do you turn ore into fuel in KSP?
Ore can be converted into liquid fuel, oxidizer, and monopropellant using a converter and electric charge. There is no change in total mass when converting to liquid fuel and/or oxidizer, but there is when converting to monopropellant. Conversion continues to function during time warp.
How do you transfer fuel in KSP?
To transfer fuel you will have to dock your vessels. This can be done either using docking ports on both vessels or a “grabbing unit” aka the “claw” on one of them. You will also need to have at least one upgrade of the science facility back at the Kerbal Space Center to enable resource transfer.
How do you get science in Kerbal space program?
Science may also be obtained upon successful completion of certain contracts, or gained through the implementation of administrative strategies. Science must either be recovered or transmitted in order to be used on Kerbin to unlock additional technologies.
How do you get to polar orbit in KSP?
If you change your nav ball to orbit before you get out of the atmosphere just align the prograde marker with the north line and that’s when you know you’re in a straight polar orbit. Launch North (or South, doesn’t matter).
What can engineers do KSP?
Engineer is a specialization assigned to Kerbonauts. Engineers can repair broken parts with repair kits and repack parachutes. They also greatly affect the efficiency of Resource Harvesters and Converters on the craft they are aboard.
What do radiators do in KSP?
The radiators are special devices that can cool other parts of a craft, consuming a small amount of electric charge when operating. They dissipate heat into space (radiative) and atmosphere (convective).
How do you scan arms in Kerbal space program?
Once the surface feature is found, get close to it and right-click on the arm to start the scan. The ship must be at a full stop and the arm must have enough room and electricity to perform the experiment. In total you will need ~100 EC to run the experiment from start to finish.
What does the purple triangle mean in KSP?
The purple triangels are Anti-Normal and Normal. These correspond to the symbols you see on maneuver nodes.
