  1. I think Tex is trying to reinvent the wheel. The problem with DMP was never its time sync (that works fine) it was what happened when two physics bubbles collided and desync.
  2. Pretty sure I was the first to make the fuel overlay mesmerizing. http://i.imgur.com/qK7plhc.gifv
  3. Just when I was thinking: "Man, why don't I build stations?" I realised I did. This counts....right?
  4. Heh, I did this a few days ago with the Sombrero. No cheats involved. Craft file: https://mega.nz/#!HB83VJTC!7p2uhwYRyglJxHDlReofKngtU8y923BmE3EvbasV5so Oh, minor note: You have to launch vertically...skid horizontally, fall off the runway, quickly pitch down and just *hope* it takes off.
  5. Heh, I wonder if my DankNet nodes count. It's in an extremely high molniya-esque orbit, as seen by that little Kerbin in the background, serves a giant rely for Outer Planets.
  6. But wait, who won the previous challenge and the coveted prize of a 'pat on the back'?
  7. Fair enough. It'll just make the recording a bit hard to see, that's all. I doubt I can do it anyway, my stock missiles aren't great.
  8. Does hard mode have to be at night?
  9. What are you using to record? I used OBS. Pretty suite program (pun intended). Doesn't hog resources and outputs a reasonably small file.
  10. I managed a slightly better time! I also managed a 1 minute time, but the video was awful. Still, no chutes were needed, so I finally get those sweet bonus points! All I can say is THANK YOU BASED GAS, GAS, GAS! I knew the secret to this was the OST.
  11. Can I get a 'one strap like the cool kids' bonus for technically not needing the parachutes? They didn't really do anything. Curse my idiocy, I'd have had an amazing time.
  12. Please overlook the fact I was listening to Initial D's soundtrack for speed inspiration. Also, it's a little blurry full screen because I play in a window *shrug* I originally managed this: ....But then I realised to my shock that I'd paused the recording and didn't fire it back up for that attempt. So... I didn't realise I had to name my craft. I shall call it "Do you like my Plane?" for the sake of irony.
  13. Minmus intercept is easier than you think. Mess around with the camera a bit until you find the point of which Minmus's orbit intersects the Mun orbit. At this point, you can intercept for a perfect polar orbit. Line up a node so you're boosting in that general direction and you'll be fine. Obviously there's two points like this, so use your judgement for which one Minmus will be at first.
  14. You don't understand me. Make a brand new probe identical to yours. Put it in low kerbin orbit. Check the apsis and peri. Fire the decoupler at peri. Note the new apsis, work out the speed (s=d/t) by the time to apsis and distance. You will now know EXACTLY how many m/s the decoupler force is. Now switch to your old craft, set the new maneuver to incorporate the extra m/s of the decoupler force, burn, fire the decoupler. VIOLA.
  15. You don't. You factor in the push from the start. Technically you aren't firing the ball, at least with a push you would be. Edit: It's not even that hard, just put another probe up there, stage the decoupler at peri and watch the apsis rise, you'll have your m/s calculation for the actual shot. Remember, Speed = Distance / Time
