First test flights completed - all kerbals involved died - test successful
Result: Looks like I really need to start using heat shields - don't know if this is because of FAR or something else
Not tested because there was no 1.1 ready mod on CKAN:
Infernal Robotics, TweakScale and deadly reentry
I have installed DarkMultiplayer too and it didn't crash the game.
But I have no server to connect to yet so that doesn't say much.
Dark Multiplayer for 1.1 still has release status: development
