I am trying to alter the mass of the components of a rocket I am trying to design. I cant seem to change the mass of the item. For example, the nose cone I want to use weighs 13.4 OZ. When I click on mass override (it then says "mass override on") and change the mass to that figure then click on OK it changes the mass to 0.4727 OZ. What am I doing wrong?

Thanks

Sounds like a units problem. 13.4 *grams* equals .4727 oz. So make sure you're inputting ounces. Sorry not a Rocksim user so I can't offer you specific instructions there.
