Description

KSP 1.6 Fresh Install with PartDatabase.cfg as installed
KSP 1.6 Fresh Install and PartDatabase.cfg deleted and regenerated on starting

Issue:
On a fresh install of KSP 1.6.1 on steam the PartDatabase.cfg isnt the same as if KSP generates the file itself

Reproduce:
The attached craft according to ksp has deltav of 3713 (vacuum) which is ample to get into Kerbin orbit. If using the PartDatabase.cfg that is downloaded at the time
of installation it will never get into orbit.

Work Around:
Delete the PartDatabase.cfg and have KSP forced to generate it when its started. Then 3713 deltav will be enough to get into kerbin orbit
Pictures attached show that the crafts new Terrier Drag cubes arent correct for the clean install

Recommendation: Remove PartDatabase.cfg from the Install of KSP entirely and force KSP to refresh the file when theres any update (or delete it as part of the update)

Note: I know the terrier is incorrect. The other parts that are different to the generated file could be right or wrong to be honest.
