    Ok, could someone please tell me what the subject of this thread actually is?
  2. Now this is confusing to me. Is 1.2.9 the actual pre-release? Or is there going to be a 1.2.9 release followed by an eventual 1.3? I'm so confused now.
  3. Not really... @munlander1:
  4. Or the "Spruce Goose", or maybe even a C-130?
  5. and then there's... Hahaha.... for some reason, you two sound like siblings arguing who has the most macaroni and cheese in the bowl...
  6. I agree whole heartedly with this. There are a few great modders out there that seem to follow within PorkJet's parts and his version for clean and crisp graphics. Too many times I find a really great mod that I would love to use, but the visuals make it where it clashes with the existing parts style. In fact, I would be negligent in my comments if I said that all the stock parts seem to go with one another. Since .90, there has been a disconnect in the appearance of the rocket parts versus PorkJet's airplane parts overhaul.
  7. Unfortunately, when I purchased KSP in October 2013, the Steam advertisement about never having to buy any DLC or updates was still there, but I just didn't read the fine print. I do not blame this issue on SQUAD, but do blame it on Steam for advertising it while the game was in early release.
  8. Quote of the day:

    "I think that space flight is a condition of Nature that comes into effect when an intelligent species reaches the saturation point of its planetary habitat combined with a certain level of technological ability... I think it is a built-in gene-directed drive for the spreading of the species and its continuation."

      Sakkra will love it.

  9. I'm not very sure if there is a thread for this kind of stuff, and to be honest, I do not feel like looking for one. However, I saw this earlier today - and could imagine what kind of cool images we could get from the various probes if Mars did still have rings...

    Mars' Moons Were Once Its Rings, Scientists Suggest


    Now what would really be cool is if we could have rings added to Duna! :D No, in all seriousness, I thought this was too awesome of a story not to share it.

      From what I read recently, they could become rings in the next 40 million years. Crazy how nature do dat!

    2. Urses


      I heard to they will become rings. They are not tidaly locked and some day the tides will rip them apart.

      Tread suggestion, maybe "What if....?":wink:

  11. Quote of the day:

    "I love to revel in philosophical matters - especially astronomy. I study astronomy more than any other foolishness there is. I am a perfect slave to it. I am at it all the time. I have got more smoked glass than clothes. I am as familiar with the stars as the comets are. I know all the facts and figures and have all the knowledge there is concerning them. I yelp astronomy like a sun-dog, and paw the constellations like Ursa Major."
