  • 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.
  • build a plane to do "conduct survey" missions ...
  • missing SAS buttons ? upgrade at tracking and mission control then level up your Pilot to 3 or use tech tree to unlock mod with SAS
  • try to just focuses on missions you can complete easily
  • when you finish a mission keep an eye on the recovery mod or % at the end it will tell you in the report how much money you lost ....
  • sub assembly
  • ( unlock tech tree )
  • 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.
