  1. I'm looking for new ideas for launching big payloads. can you share your reasonably big stratolauncher?
  2. When ever i bring in my launch vehicle to merge with a new payload, there is no green joints to place the launch vehicle on. it simply cannot be attached anywhere. try it yourself.
  3. thanks alot
  4. that makes a lot more sense. so if the root part is sandwiched in between 2 other parts, it won't work?
  5. I've never done this challenge myself, but it's possible So, someone on the construction team didn't wire you're controls correctly Rules: No autopilot mods No KOS script No using these buttons to the left of the navball Here are the new controls: W=Q A=Z S=P D=B Q=J E=K (if someone has a better keybinding idea, i will change the rules, but keep the previous scores) Points : Get Above 15 KM :100 Above 30 :200 Suborbital flight : 600 (no Periapse) Get a Periapse: 1000 Achieve Orbit :1300 Achieve Munar SOI encounter 200 KM Land on the Mun: 3000 Bonus points : Achieve an equatorial or polar orbit less than 5 degrees off: 300 Get a periapse without the use of maneuver nodes: 800 Do not turn on SAS at all :1500 Return to kerbin: 100 All points you collect during a mission will be added up I have no badge, so just write it down in your description a GIF or video of your entire mission should be used Either have a camera pointed at your keyboard showing which buttons you're using or have an uncut video of you changing the keybindings SCORES : 3600- @icantmakemodels
  6. I wass actually thinking about this ind that s probably the problem i think i got it friends, thanks for the help
  7. My rover only moves forward when i use the A and S keys (of course, it turns when this happens as well as moves) All wheels are touching the ground. picture of rover
  8. oh, i guess my picture didn't show the batteries on there.. i have over 1000 EC
  9. this is what i have observed First off, i appreciate a member of squad responding, thanks for making this game! Second, i did have to use a lot of manipulation to get the wheels on a structural sheet. Is there a way to fix this, or should I just make a new design? P.S.: why does the wheel power degrade when i go forward. It works fine for a few seconds after i launch it, but then i can see the motor power randomly drop.
  10. I concur. It may take a lot more delta V to change from a equatorial orbit to a polar, but not to hard to do with the keybindings altered once you're up here
  11. Well i said in the rules no autopilot mods, but i'll include KOS just in case I think if they can make a rocket that will fly without the controls being touched, that deserves points. I am also adding more challenging tasks so everyone check if they want to attempt those! Breaks shouldn't be needed, and if you really need the max throttle button, you may assign it a different key.
  12. Whenever I perform the last step of the ascent profile (high altitude), I flip out despite having a reaction wheel and pitch an yaw control surfaces.
  13. aren't more intakes better for high altitude flight? They keep you're jet engines running.
  14. so, your advice is angling the wings (down if their behind the COM and up if in front) and getting rid of the canards? If it doesn't work,i may just experiment witht he stock craft or download a good one from somewhere in the forums.
  15. to clarify: it starts when i'm high in the second layer of the atmosphere/ early in the third. JX-4 "whiplash" engines are still producing sufficient thrust for flight
  17. Piddly little rocket
  18. An escape trajectory means it will leave Kerbins SOI (gravitational field). It means you must create an orbit that would land you in orbit around the sun. It may also count if you use a trajectory that will give you a quick flyby of the mun or minmus.
  20. I appreciate the information, thank you.
  21. Why do many KSP youtubers turn of SAS for spaceplane flight. Its way easier to fly with it and probably easier than using trim. Is it just a show of skill?
  22. Well, I think my question was answered. Continue to chat if you fell like it!
  23. Don't mean to be a grammar pedant, but in the paragraph that starts with "Simple Interface:", there are two news where it talks about creating new missions don't mean to be a prick, but there are two news there. (paragraph that starts with Simple interface
  24. so, i know it's been a long time, but my computer broke so i can't even play ksp, ill try to do another story soon (does it count as necroposting if its all my posts anyways?)
  25. This is my first post on the fan works section so this may be unprofessional or whatever, i encourage anyone to give their opinions on this series (if it becomes a series.) I dont really feel like taking screenshots so sorry, but that my change. Phase 1: Chapter 1: Element B-238 Karl sat lying in wait in the shadows, watching the "Konstruction workers" drill at the new site. He new what they were doing, he picked up the energy signatures, the comms chatter. What he didn't know was what was giving off the energy and why they needed it. Suddenly he heard shouting, and someone pointed in his direction. "Dammit," he whispered Alex sat at his desk, going through papers."My desk at THE octogon," He thought. Finally here. No more bullies, no more inefficient school system, no more slow processing times. At only 14, he was truly a prodigy. He would have gone to prison for doing what he did, but the government saw promise in him and put him in charge of the whole worlds communication. Even though we was a stereotypical mad scientist, he would keep the information secret.. "They made me do it," he told the police. "I'm sick of people believing strength matters anymore. I have created strength out of Science!." He looked down at his hand, a perfect combination of metal and organics. as always his photo receptors analyzed everything around him. The floor was made of marble with a fibrous covering. His hand was comprised of simple organic tissue and a special alloy he designed himself. Again he asked himself "Why would you not fully transform yourself, it would be logical." He replied "Fear is a powerful motivator, I look like something out of a sci-fi movie. Those bullies still knew I was me, but much stronger, the fear in their eys was beautiful." He was interrupted by his phone ringing. as soon as he picked it up he heard a familiar voice frantically saying "The return drone is headed back, be prepared to receive it and contain a volatile substance, I found it." He hung up. Alex quickly activated his sub dermal comms device and said "Call a meeting." we need everyone. Every leader in the government sat around the table, in the center of the table there was a hunk of what looked like a shiny rock in a heavily insulated chamber. Werhner said "I definitely see its potential for power generation." Weapons expert Carol said, "Krussia may have found a way to release all its energy at once, making a bomb." Alex said "Those would be the only concerning reasons i could think of with the information we have at the moment. Commander Reyes said " I suggest we get Karl back as soon as possible. He was a good soldier, but i think the Krussians and their unorthodox ways of torture may break him." The Supreme Kerbal asked, "is there any way his equipment could tie him to our country?." "No," replied covert ops leader Blake. "What about this.... rock. What is it?" the Supreme Kerbal asked, pointing to the box in the middle of the table. "That," Werhner said heroically, "is a new element." Gasps and wows could be heard from everyone else. "The drone was captured in Blue Bay, so we have designated it Blutonium 238. Tests will be continuing.
