  1. you don't have to include all of the tiny burns. Especially if the resource window is open it will be easy to see fuel differences.
  2. This challenge inspired me to make an N1 as a sort of companion to my Saturn V from the Apollo Style Redux challenge. The unique shape of the N1 ended up making it 446 parts, over twice the part count of the Saturn V, but I'm happy how well it looks. How well it flies, well let's just say it has over 70 open nodes that make a giant amount of drag. The ascent profile almost looks like it's from before KSP 1.0. I also have a Soyuz that's on KerbalX, but it was not used for this challenge. I did start with that Soyuz spacecraft to make the LOK. N1 will be on KerbalX soon! I've completed 6-L and 8-L. Both are in the album below. http://imgur.com/a/5X1p9 Scoring: Accurate Launch Vehicles +15, Accurate Spacecraft +10, Efficiency is Key +5, Survivability +5, Hardcore +40, Spacewalking +5, Missions +40 = 120 points
  3. You can cut out planning maneuvers, as long as you have some footage of executing them. Also if it's clear where you're going, such as during a long timewarp or on an easy landing on Bop, Pol, or Vall, the middle of that can be cut out. But any time fuel is tight, piloting is difficult, or the sequence of actions is confusing should obviously stay in your video.
  4. Hmm, you're right, it does work. I've used that trick with the old broken albums but I didn't think to try it with the new broken albums, because there's nothing visible to click on.
  5. Is there any way that broken albums can be restored, without individual attention from a mod? I have two examples, this is a recent post with an album that does not appear at all and this is a much older one that still appears broken in the "old" way where it would appear as a black box. I've been using the Jool 5 Challenge thread as a time capsule to see if old albums are handled differently. Between these two there was a while when albums were known to not work on the forums and people posted links instead of embedding.
  6. Yes, submissions in 1.2 are still welcome. There weren't many gameplay-altering changes from 1.2 to 1.3 so you'll be on an even footing with everyone. Wow, that's unfortunate and looks even worse than past times Imgur has broken on the forums, you used to be able to use the "inspect element" thing to find the url of broken albums. In the thread you linked, @Red Iron Crown was able to edit posts manually to get the images back, but understandably everyone will be asking for this. I think it's affected the last 5 or so pages of the Jool 5 thread, AKA about everyone who submitted in 1.3.
  7. Yes, that's okay.
  8. Goblin makes a counterattack against one of the Eos, firing its I-beam rockets. The second hit knocks off some bottom armor, exposing the root part. The next 2 shots do no visible damage, but the fifth one splits the ship. Some bug caused the parts of the ship to lose their orbital velocity after the hit, so they are falling to Eeloo now. You can use the set orbit cheat to put them back in orbit because it was a bug. Goblin still has one I-beam and its guided missile remaining. Also looking at Whisper, the remaining engine can't get fuel from the tanks for some reason, so it is officially dead. Otherwise I would have salvaged the guided missiles. https://www.dropbox.com/s/ghjpuek4uxya3bw/persistent - turn1vsMiffed.sfs?dl=0
  9. The battle still stands, if either of you want to take your turn...
  10. Yes, the circular feather badge in the OP is meant for low mass contenders. I don't have one for low cost, but let me see what I can do.
  11. @zanie420 Congratulations, you have completed the Jool 5 Challenge on Jeb's Level! Your plane is impressively small for all that it can do, fitting in an ISRU and all of the science equipment (but minimal power generation - it must have taken a long time to fill up!) 56927 is the second highest amount of science points ever collected in a Jool 5, no doubt because you were able to visit so many biomes. You also are the current leader for the low mass and low cost challenges! @Alchemist Great to see you're doing a Jool 5 with the HRO shuttle. Is that Tylo? and did you just land on the tail and flop over to horizontal?
  12. Oh that tonnage and location was your suggestion... I can do both battles at Eeloo, just rename the persist something different after your turn and I can keep them separate.
  13. Okay here is the persist. My 4 ships are set up at Eeloo, I have 2 34-ton corvettes and 2 66-ton destroyers for a total of 200 tons. https://www.dropbox.com/s/g7t8mgrcd8fypcm/SDJvsShadow-Eeloo.sfs?dl=0
  14. Well @ShadowGoat asked so I replied to him, but I can battle you too, @MiffedStarfish if you want. As Spartwo said two separate battles would likely be easier to complete and less likely to be decided by who decides to attack who. I'll be traveling on Sunday and Monday just so you know, I could set up now and maybe you can take your first turns while I'm gone, I'll take my turn when I come back.
  15. I can do a space battle. I could do 200 tons for 3 ships or whatever you want if you don't like that. Also I have sorta finished the 200 ton super ship I talked about a few pages back. You can choose the location.
