  1. this is a challenge to crash into the sun as fast as you can. you have to have a video of you doing it, from launch to crash, the timer will be of the real life time it took so no speeding up video and no physics warp. time warp is allowed. only rule: no cheats, stock or non stock but must be said which. it can be any controllable payload. if you just can't have a video then post a picture of the complete craft and the time, what my time is shows you what kind of time I'm looking for. my attempt, which won't count towards the leader board: leaderboard: 1.

  2. This is a dead simple challenge: * Build an SSTO spaceplane. Must be purely RAPIER powered, although you can use as many or as few as you want. Must be a winged, HOTOL conventional spaceplane. * Take off from KSC runway, get to an orbit of at least 70x70, return to KSC runway. Simple. * No parachutes or other against-the-spirit trickery. Fly to space on wings, establish an orbit, fly back to KSC as fast you can. Wheaton's law applies; if in doubt, ask. * No mod parts, no performance-altering mods (except for optionally FAR). Informational mods are fine, but fly it yourself; no Smart A.S.S. or other autopilots. * Separate leaderboards for stock aero and FAR. * Prove your time with a screenshot showing you in orbit and another showing you stopped on the KSC runway. Extra shots detailing the whole flight are welcome. * Post your craft file as well. * Fly in the morning if you want a well-illuminated ship. Demo Run Orbital return time of 20:07. I know that I can do better than that. Can you? Full album at Craft file at LEADERBOARD STOCK Obi_Juan, 11:09 Nefrums, 11:17 Wanderfound, 16:57 NightshineRecorallis, 19:17 FAR
  3. Here are the rules. This is a challenge I have came up with. Try to reach the furthest distance possible within the time limit. Post your scores here. I hope you enjoy this short little challenge. RCS rockets are allowed but you can not add anymore fuel to your craft that other then what is on the based parts. Spinning out does not count against you since KSP 1.1 wheels are weird.
  4. This year while all the staff are away from the KSC on holiday Jeb decided to host a race, but this race is unlike anything anyone would ever approve of, requiring small nimble aircraft to get in between all of the narrowest corridors between the KSC buildings. This challenge is inspired by 1930's air races and modern drone racing and is a combination of the two, with tight drone racing style corridors but with an emphasis on improving aerodynamic design rather than the rather crude bricks which constitute drones. Each race is a single lap around the course starting at the runway, pilots then guide their craft as fast as possible over the SPH, as close to the tower as possible. The second marker is the launch pad water tower, each pilot must pass to the right of the water tower and head to the east side of the runway which is the third mark. Rounding the third mark, the next mark is the cylindrical fuel container with the blue stripe which is between mission control and the VAB. The player then continues through the corridor past the administrative building and makes a left turn around the R&D complex and flies behind the VAB avoiding obstacles. The course ends when you cross the midpoint of the runway. Record your time at this point and land safely for a valid entry. This is the course, the red outlines the boundaries of gates with reference to buildings. The Rules: 1) Ferram Aerospace Research is necessary 2) Passing under gates is necessary, flying above the highest point of a structure is considered passing over a gate 3) You must add 5 seconds to your time every time you pass over a gate 4) One should consider an entry invalid if the course is not followed (cutting inside a gate, flying over corridors) 5) Your power plant of choice will be included on the leaderboard, I hope to see some interesting choices 6) Flying above the VAB while racing renders the result invalid. 7) And I almost forgot, absolutely no torque reaction wheels or cockpit torque! Suggestions: 1) Wings may be helpful 2) The aircraft/rocket should not be wider than a corridor 3) Stay subsonic, this challenge is all about cornering, precision and speed is last in terms of concerns 4) you need about 1 minute and 30 seconds of fuel, no more is necessary.
