  1. Ooooops Just forgot this rule... I choose to submit my attempt after the end the mission, so the design didn't take account of this
  2. This time I completed the mission (the last save game was corrupted)... And also a Grand Tour was done - Which game versions did you use? A:1.2.2- What mods did you use, if any? A:Yes, the complete list is in the first post of the report- How many Kerbals are on the mission? A: 1- How many launches were needed to start your mission from Kerbin? A: 1- How much did your mission cost? 1,004,669 on the launch pad- Did you needed a refueling mission? A: No- Did you bring additional stuff like satellites, rovers, etc? A: Nothing tightly necessary- Share the delta-V information too, if you tracked it! A: I used more or less 8000 units of xenon, 10000 m/s for outer planets, 2800 m/s for reaching Eve, plus something to reach Moho.
  3. Thankyou! Do you mean to switch the configuraton of the Ion lander?
  4. Pol, Eeloo and the Grand Finale! The last leg of the mission and the landing at Kerbin, a pretty fast landing.
  5. First Part of Jool-5 After 19 year and 320 days Bill feel a bit nostalgic of home, but carry on! only two bodies to go!
  6. Dres landin and Arrive at Jool After some Dres love Bill goes for the first leg of the Jool-5

  8. Duna and Ike (With Imgur Album!!!) And here we are again! Sorry for the long break but leaving Moho is actually harder than reaching. But the brave Bill achieved it on the external command pod of the lander. After the landings in the Duna system the ship is configurated for the trip to Jool Dres.
  9. Eve and Moho Welcome back and sorry for the long silence. In these day Eve (!!) and Moho was conquered. The landing spot: I actually overshoot it and so the ship landed only 2300 m high... Lander separation Hitting the atmosphere Heatshield opened Near the surface it's decoupled And landed, the shield survived and will remain for ever near the flag (The lander is shameless copied from this, with few tweaks) Now come the fun! The lowest landing site mean that we shouldn't reach orbit... but one problem at time... The launch profile is quite simple: a straight ascent until 22 km and a slow gravity turn I was right... We need 400 m/s... Using the EVA pack to reach orbit We made it! The lander is used as a lifeboat for save Bill Return to the mothership, now decommissionated All xenon reserves and the lander were transferred on the Moho tug for the trip Transfer orbit to Moho And burning to circularize In orbit of Moho The lander is reconfigured for descent Flag planted! Reurning to orbit Rendezvous with the tug Coming soon the rendezvous with the motership at Duna, stay tuned!
  10. Still Interplanetary Travel and Gilly A small update (seems that I have choose the worst period for this mission) Landers for Laythe and Tylo burned for Jool The ship was first left in the same inclination of gilly and with an high apoapsis, for a more efficient transfer Reconfigured for gilly landing Intercepting gilly Separation of the transfer stage (using KIS and on a suborbital trajectory) And landing! First flag outside Kerbin System In the meantime the ship circularised high over Eve
  11. The Great Split and First Interplanetary travel The 1.2.9 is in pre-release and the clock is counting, so better hurry up to catch the Musk-like deadline! At the mothership Bill detached some spent Xe tank for lower mass Then dedicated lander was detached and prepared for interplanetary voyage, here Duna Lander: Tylo Lander And Laythe (sorry for the darkness...) Bill detached also the supports of the landers And the separation between mothership "A" and "B" (nomenclature by KASA) Route of the two motherships The mothership "A" and the Lander burn for Duna And they are also first on they target Tomorrow we will see the eve on Laythe and maybe on Moho. Bye!
  12. Mün and Minmus This is the General Purpose Lander (a 4k battery with dawn engines, shamelessly copied from @Jetski), it will land on every body except of course Eve, Duna, Tylo and Laythe. I'm using KAS for switching between the double engine version (for higher TWR) and single (for higher D/v). For the Mün I used the double engine version with 1100 unit of xenon. Node splitting for low TWR First Flag! Rendezvous with the mothership. The docking without RCS is very hard the first time, this took over 20 minutes of bouncing after the docking the lander was refilled and reconfigured for Minmus, this time with one engine and 400 unit of Xe. And the flag is in position! Returned to the mothership, ready for the interplanetary travel Links are only temporary, I will upload the screenshots on imgur asap. I know... lets change in "before I upload to 1.3"
