This is mostly a quality-of-life request: When I gather data from non-rerunnable science experiments, I'd like to be able to toggle off the warning that I can only reset those experiments with a Scientist.

For a somewhat similar example, the first time the player uses high physical time warp, there is a warning that doing so can destroy vessels, but it is also possible for the player to ignore the warning in the future with a 'Don't Show Me Again' checkbox. That's essentially what I would like to see here: a 'Don't Show Me Again' option for the non-rerunnable science experiments.

I call this a quality-of-life request because the only time I really find it annoying is when I'm doing Goo experiments at the KSC microbiomes, but it nevertheless would be much appreciated if you could please look into it.

Agreed, I posted this as #8763 during the pre but maybe now is a better time to get it implemented.

That said, for now I just make the experiments rerunnable using ModuleManager.

This behaviour does still exist, exactly as described, in 1.1.3.

If you really, really want reproduction steps:

1. Create a craft with a Mk. I Pod and attached Mystery Goo container.
2. Launch.
3. Run the Mystery Goo experiment on the pad.
4. EVA and attempt to collect the science from the experiment via right-click dialogue.
5. Notice the unavoidable warning dialogue.

This also occurs with the Science Jr. and any other experiments set to 'Rerunnable = False' in the ModuleScienceExperiment section of the cfg, and additionally when attempting to transmit the science rather than collecting it on EVA.

To reiterate: the desired behaviour is for the dialogue to have a checkbox or other setting to disable it or otherwise prevent its appearance, much the same as the first-time warning dialogue given to players using high rates of physical time warp.

I changed this to a UI issue because I think it fits better there. Of course, the issue still exists, and at the risk of sounding too sarcastic, I will say that after more than a year and one half, I am quite aware that only scientists may reset experiments. Really, I am. No, really. I get it. May we please get a button to silence that alert?

Updating once again.

Personally I find the warning annoying every time I do materials science or goo experiments. If adding a don't show again warning is too difficult, maybe just add another option (on one of the ksp setting pages) to suppress the warning.
