  1. Here is a pic of the inland KSC from the map. The inland KSC is the topmost location marked on the map. Below it is the desert temple. Here is the link to the youtube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hy5TfryOl60
  2. The very thought of having to look at those horrible looking buildings appalls me. I can't believe they were ever even in KSP.
  3. Happy Easter!
  4. Such an addition would be a great Delta V saver and would also make SRBs much easier to control after liftoff. Perhaps the width of the gap in the centre of the SRB could be adjusted in the VAB similarly to how the thrust limiter is used to control max thrust on liquid fueled engines? (Right click on SRB then adjust a slider to control the SRB gap width.)
  5. If I remember correctly the version the "landing" occurred in was 0.80
  6. This thread reminded me of what happened on my first (and only) Jool "landing". It was a long time ago when I had first started playing KSP. The whole mission went flawlessly and my lander was on a sub-orbital trajectory towards Jool. Everything appeared normal until suddenly everything around the lander turned green and my camera only allowed me to look down on my craft. I surmised that this was a bug and continued the landing. My excitement was up 100 points as the altimeter slowly ticked down to zero. It was then I realized something was wrong. After reaching zero, the altimeter began to climb again. It reached 256 meters before the mission ended in a fiery explosion. I had no idea of what had happened. Later I discovered that spacecraft cannot land on Jool because its a gas giant and the pressure will crush the space craft. This just goes to show you the importance of researching your destination before actually launching.
  7. That is awesome! Now I challenge you to build a trombone shaped spacecraft.
  8. Goodbye Sal, we will miss you. Good luck in whatever you decide to do.
  9. That is beautiful. I wish I lived farther north so I could see auroras. But I guess I'll be seeing the total solar eclipse later this year so that makes up for it.
  10. This feature is already included in the amazing Quiztech Aero Mod. Its a great help controlling a VTOL or just making small planes easier to fly.
  11. Definitely won't be eating here tonight.
  12. I'm a perfectionist by nature, so to me, unless a craft looks perfect as well as being functional it really bugs me. A good craft typically takes me about an hour to an hour and a half to create.
  13. Where I live we don't venture outside the house unless the outside temp. is above 50 degrees. This winter has been exceptionally warm, rarely dipping below 40 degrees. Some snow would be nice, but that's only once in ten years and even then we rarely get more then a few inches. While folks in New York are bracing for a huge snowstorm, we are outside in t-shirts. Southern winters.
  14. Happy Saint Patrik's Day to all you out there in kerbal land! May you have luck in your attempts to conquer the universe! Legend has it that the kerbal who catches a leprechaun may use a cheat of his choosing! (Whack-a-kerbal seems to be the most popular due to kerbals attempts to knock a little more sense into their heads.) The leprichauns can also fix your boots after a long day trekking to and from the KSC lunch room. To top it all off you can blame any would be failures on the leprechauns! What more could a kerbal ask for? Read more about real life St. Patrick's Day here.
  15. So basically your saying that spontaneous generation happens?
