  1. So no rules on engines or propulsion?
  2. What are the rules on the boat?
  3. I would do it stock, but I've tried electric engines and they almost never work for me. Also, I already had a solar impulse 2 model, and I was going to use it because it was halfway across Kerbin (I have about 11 hours of recording from it). The only problem with it is that it uses KAX. I'm currently working on the X-36, and I may have to compete with @MiffedStarfish for the X-29. I love me some forward swept wings!
  4. Ah, okay. I was wondering what the "X" meant. Well, I'll still compete, but I'm unsure of what I'll do now...
  5. (Leaving this here after edit. I will not be doing these (as they're not part of the challenge) but I will still enter) I will be doing a minimum of two entries, one of these will be the Concorde: And another will be the solar impulse 2 (Have to re-download mods for this one)
  6. Here's my entry, the "Hoverslug". It's completely stock, no mods at all. Here's my current (set) score: 2,500 points -"Eye of the Needle": Complete the challenge of flying to the island runway and back. 1000 points awarded. -"How's the weather up there?!": Fly your craft to a service ceiling of 12.000 meters or higher. +100 point bonus. -Peaked at 14,970 meters -"Look Out Below!": Hold the altitude record in the challenge. +100 point bonus. -"Hop on!": Carry a second Kerbal to ride in tandem with your driver. +100 point bonus. -I have two in this case, one was supposed to be for "Shotgun Rider", but I see that it doesn't count for that. -"Wet Nellie": Complete the challenge with a craft that is submersible. +500 point bonus. -(For some reason, the last picture doesn't want to show up, it shows the "Hoverslug" underwater) -"Boom!": Achieve supersonic speed with your jet bike. +500 point bonus. -"Jet Ski": Build a craft that can sail on water. +100 point bonus. -"Long Ranger": Hold the record for the longest distance travelled in the challenge. +100 point bonus. -Traveled a total of 315,193 meters -No penalties Potential Points: (This would bring my score up to 3,000 points) -"West Koast Kustom": Have the best looking craft in the challenge. +500 point bonus.
  7. Are A.I.R.B.R.A.K.E.S allowed as long as they don't cause lift? As in, will they count towards the "lift hiker" penalty, or not?
  8. Yes It can be estimated based on the weight of the parts under the water, I should be able to double check this based on screenshots and/or video.
  9. Challenge: Build a boat that goes as fast as you can make it travel. Rules: -Must have at least one kerbal in it (this can be in anything as long as the kerbal is secured to the vehicle, the kerbal can't be holding on to it) -Must have at least one part under the surface of the water -Must have at least a net total of 0.25 tons under the surface of the water (you can estimate this) -Must be intact and not break any parts (planned staging is okay as long as it still applies to the rules above) -Must provide screenshot and/or video evidence of the attempt -Highest speed will be counted as the highest speed measured for 3 seconds as long as the boat applies to the rules above -Have fun (Side note: vesselmover or similar mods are acceptable to get the vessel into the water) Scoring: -Each kerbal on the boat is worth 10 points -Speed is divided by thrust, then multiplied by the weight, that is then multiplied by 5, finally your amount of kerbals is multiplied by 10, and added to the total. -The equation for points is this: -((m/s)/kN)*5t+(10)K OR -((meters/sec) / (available thrust)) * (5 * mass in tons) + (10 * Kerbals onboard) Example: -500m/s top speed, 390kN (3 panthers in wet mode), 12 tons, 3 kerbals -((500/390)*(5*12)+30=106.92 points Scoreboard: - - - - -
  10. @Foxster All I could think of from that rocket was "Great news, everyone!" from Futurama.
  11. @jonny I'd recommend not putting up another challenge, so that we can keep it from getting confusing. Maybe we could make it a competition for whoever completes the challenge first gets to decide the next challenge? @quasarrgames
  12. Just made a hovercraft and completed the challenge. Unfortunately due to the fact that I don't know how to use OBS hardly at all, it's poor-ish quality without sound... (Also, if someone could tell me how to embed this video, it'd be appreciated, thank you!)
  13. Are aerobrakes allowed? Like a spoiler that points upwards for more braking force? Not the A.I.R.B.R.A.K.E.S, though.
  14. Yep! I'm hoping someone will try to, as I've tried making prop propellers before and they don't really work for me... I'm recording video right now of my entry, so far it's taken 1, 0:44:36 in KSP (1 day 44 minutes).
  15. Travel the world in an electric plane! The challenge is based off of the Solar Impulse 2 plane which traveled around the world without using any fuel. This is challenging you to do the same in KSP! Basic Rules: -Start at the KSC, go around Kerbin, and finish at KSC. -Only use electricity to achieve this. (No fuel, not even Dawn propulsion, KAX is recommended) -You can land on islands to recharge batteries. -NO MODS BESIDES KAX (Kerbal Aircraft Expansion) Advanced Rules: -All basic rules apply. -Make it around Kerbin in the fastest time possible, and/or with the most kerbals. -If you do both time and number of kerbals, your time will be divided by the amount of kerbals you carry around in the trip. Basic Completionists: - Advanced Completionists Scoreboard: - Record your progress by taking screenshots, or posting video of your work. A download link to the craft would be preferred. I really look forward to seeing what you guys can create!
