  • dont ever use return to launch pad or anything always use quick save and load etc .. quick save before launch etc...
  • stay away from missions that are high altitudes/ and low speed etc ... for now. stick with ones that are ALT or SPEED only .. do both only if you are sure you can do it.
  • use F12 to keep an eye on physics
  • to EVA in space you need upgrade astronaut complex first ...
  • hit the rest button in the build menu to reset all the stage to .. logical order
  • My rules of thumb for parachutes:
    • Mk1s are good for a ton each.
    • Radials and drogues are good for 1.5t each.
    • Mk2s are good for 2t each.

  • A good rule of thumb is to simply keep the ship between 200-300 m/s until you are above 12k meters so you aren't burning extra fuel to get through the lower atmosphere where you're going to experience the most drag. https://m.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL-7ICWbZUDjlBrsHIS8mEEj3xIMUQwlp5
