  2. After finishing the mig, I quit playing kerbal for a few weeks until I came back and made this submarine. Not based on any specific model, not a replica of any kind, just a working submarine made to look a little like a german one. I had some serious trouble with getting my computer to actually render the thing, I don't know why but it seems my pc is dying, half the time it's at 100% disk usage, no viruses or malware, and none of the tutorials online help me out with anything, but anyway, here's the ship. Using no propellor mods because they're too easy in my opinion, I made the motor of the submarine with infernal robotics and some control surfaces. This actually ran me into some problems when piloting the sub. Each rotor is set at a speed of 10 with acceleration of 2 and spins in an opposite direction to the other in order to not have the thing spinning like crazy underwater. To get the sub moving I set the speed in the RPM GUI ingame to 5, making the rotors spin at a speed of 50, any higher and the control surfaces break off. When resurfacing I have to turn off the rotors lest they break on surface, I found that going up at 10 degrees and cutting the rotors at a depth of 100 meters usually curbs the issue. At the surface I usually run it at a speed of 30. This makes it so the rotors don't break off and I can move at a steady rate over the water. Have some pictures with scatterer for looks! I get the sub into the water using vessel mover which is why I have the struts on the side to keep it up on the launchpad. I cannot film this or even open anything up anymore because my pc is not letting me. I havent the slightest clue why it's doing this but every time I try to play anything or do anything it just doesnt work or loads so slow it might as well not have worked. I'm going to try reinstalling windows but after that I won't have any of these builds and I'm thinking I'm just going to quit playing this game. I can't take this any longer.
  3. Briefing: A recent poll showed that 60% of kerbals in the middle class are dissatisfied with their current means of transportation. Many of those who were polled had no way to reliably get from their house to an underwater base meeting or a meeting in a sky city within 5 days. Your job, as the head designer for a little-known company named KerbTekh, is to make a vehicle that can fly, swim, and take off a runway, all in one. Objective: Make a vehicle that can fly, go underwater, and take off a runway, and is completely reusable (if going to Laythe or Eve, reusability is not required) Rules: 1: No mods allowed except for Kerbal Engineer. (Texture mods are obviously fine) 2: I'll take your word for proof, but pictures or videos would be great 3: There must be room for at least one kerbal. 4: No cheats of any kind. No debug menu, no anything like that. Points: can fly (10 pts) (required) can go at least 5m underwater (5 pts) (required) can take off from runway (5 pts) (required) can land after flying without exploding (10 pts) can break Mach one while flying (10 pts) can break Mach two while flying (15 pts) can go at a speed of over 10 m/s underwater (5 pts) can go at a speed of over 20 m/s underwater (10 pts) can go at a speed of over 30 m/s underwater (15 pts) can go over 50 m/s underwater (25 pts) done on Eve (60 pts) (no cheating to get there) done on Laythe (150 pts) (no cheating to get there) can go above altitude of 20K (10 pts) can go above altitude of 30K (15 pts) can reach space (10 pts) can float (5 pts) can sink (10 points) sandbox mode (5 pts) science mode (10 pts) career mode (20 pts) room for 1 kerbal (5 pts) (required) room for 2 kerbals (10 pts) room for 4 kerbals (20 pts) room for 10 kerbals (30 pts) can reach orbit (15 pts) Under 10,000KG (15 pts) Under 15,000KG (5 pts) Over 80,000KG (5 pts) Over 250,000KG (20 pts) Bon chance! Extra points may be awarded for a particularly creative design. I'm trying to post a picture of my ship but Microsoft edge is being weird.... I'll get a picture up as soon as I can

  5. I have few small mods for KSP, but no many peoples knows about them. So I make this topic to post here all of my work on KSP. Let`s begin! -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Ballast Water Tanks: add few parts with changeable mass in flight. Designed for submarines, act good if used as payload weight. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- SmallTweaks: so small, so useless useful... -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ... another mods incoming . Use MM and have fun!

  7. Welcome to the Kerbmarine challenge! Intro: Our research team has been having a lot of trouble trying to discover the depths of the ocean, they required something sufficient enough to go to very deep depths and collect data from the mysterious ocean floor. They agreed on making it true. Jebediah Kerman had the decission to actually participate in the first test mission, nothing special, it's not as if there's a kra- oh.. Explanation: The mission sounds very easy, but is krakenly hard because of the water physics Kerbal Space Program has to offer. You are prompted to create a functional submarine that can dive into the water, this challenge is actually difficult, so I have included some mods that may help you out with this challenge. Allowed mods: Kerbal Aircraft Expansion: For a realistic propeller. Tweakscale: To tweak all parts to whatever size you want your kerbmarine. SM Marine: You may use any part from this mod, but I mainly added it for ballast tanks (VERY Highly recommended, I don't even know how it will be possible without this mod) Vessel Mover: To put your mighty krakma- Erm, Kerbmarine into the water. I highly appreciate any visual enhancement mods, you'd make me happier. Notice: Difficulties: Sandbox: Do whatever you want, I WILL check your Kerbmarine, but there's a very little chance that you will get added to the winner list (You are allowed to use ANY mod in sandbox mode). Easy: Make a functional Kerbmarine. Moderate: Make a very maneuverable submarine (What I mean about maneuverable is not how fast it turns, it's how fast it can dive or surface). Hard: Make a mini-submarine, and launch it from a ship. Impossible: Make a big submarine (Width of a jumbo tank or higher), get it to space, de-orbit it, survive re-entry, survive the seriously loud splash. Submitting: Include the .craft file for me to download (Essential, there have been a lot of fake submissions recently) Include a video (Recommended) Include directions of use (Essential) Include screenshots (Essential) Include side notes (Highly Recommended) Include which mods you have installed on your game (Essential) Winner Board: Outro: I wish you the best of luck! The Kerbals will finally get to learn what lurks at the bottom of the ocean. Post is now horrible looking due to an administrative edit. (Font sizes were organized) Ugh.
  8. Jebediah found himself wandering around the design department recently, so thought he would have a go at putting together something for fun rather than the serious business of space exploration. The flying sub is what he came up with, and surprisingly managed to get it on to the production line as well. Pros: Is quite versatile, fun for a while, is a bit different Cons: Has no real practical use, has a short range, doesn't fly particularly well which makes it a cow to land, isn't a particularly good submarine due to the positive buoyancy, though it does make a reasonable boat. Operational notes. Taking off from water should be done from the submerged position as too much speed is lost when trying to transition from the surface. Try not to land too slowly as this requires the nose to be pitched up to reduce vertical velocity, which usually results in bouncing all over the place when the main gear touches down. A nose high attitude when landing on water usually results in the engines getting knocked off. Action group key 1 toggles the engine mode. Craft file on Dropbox ETA: Have made a few small changes to the craft since posting, so that it now flies better (marginally) and is not so prone to skidding across the runway when landing, but it's still a cow to land.
  9. So guys, here it is: The Amfibie Challenge. The time that i came up on this challenge was when i was messing around with planes and cars... i decided to make a flying car with retractable wings... This was really fun to make and i would definitely give it a shot if i was you... Easy mode: Make a flying car Normal mode: Make a flying car that can dive underwater Hard mode: Make a flying car with retractable wings that can dive underwater You can use the mods: Infernal Robotics, tweakscale, procedural tanks and kerbal joint reinforcement (b9 aerospace for designing, you have to use stock engines tho) my craft: you will have to take of the runway and make a few turns in the air, then you will have to dive into the sea (<-- normal mode or higher) then you have to take off uit of the water (<- normal or higher) and then you land on the ground. You have retract your wings (if your are doing hard mode) and drive into a building with a speed of around 20 m/s. Rating will be done on how the craft looks. i won't put you in the leaderboards if you are using cheats or mods that i don't allow. -easy mode: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. -normal mode: 1. notsodeadjeb 'THE Koyoda Kundra' 2. PointySideUp 'microsub of flying' 3. 4. 5. -hard mode: 1. I guess me? 2. 3. 4. 5. Have fun with this challenge! Ps... you will be rated higher if you make a video about it! And if you subscribe on me (advertisement, i know)
  10. Sector 7 Space Laboratories Deep Sea Exploration Division - Scuba Do Craft - Scuba Do KSP v1.0.5 After experiencing my first Submarine called "Squirt" it gave me a desire to build another. I believe if you follow the coastline for Ore to refuel exploring Kerbin's Oceans could be done as much as you would like. Craft Assembly: Probodobodyne OKTO2, MK7 Rocket Nose Cone, Vernor Engines, FL-T200 Fuel Tanks, Radial Intakes,Drills, Convert-O-Trons, Fly-by-Wire Avionics Hub, Standard Canards, Advanced Canards, MK1 Lander Cans, Large Reaction Wheel, Whiplash Engines, Batteries, Rockomax Brand Adapter, Medium Size Landing Gear, Lights Operations: At the Hangar be sure Kerbals DO NOT ENTER, the Kerman's love this Submarine and they can go along for the ride if you like but be sure to control the Sub from the OKTO2. When arriving the runway engage the RCS and SAS, hit spacebar and give a little throttle only to reach low speeds 6 to 8 m/s until course is set for the water. Land speeds are ok up to 40-50 m/s running straight but not sure what Top Speeds can be reached. Just before entering the water come to a complete stop and lock the brakes. Press action group 1 for the drills and panels to extend. Press action group 2 after the drills have had enough time to extend completely other wise the drills will not began to Harvest. After time warping to fill the Ore Tanks retract the drills and panels by pressing action group 1. If necessary panels can be toggled alone with action group 10. **** SPECIAL NOTICE: You must Jettison Only the Fourth Ore Tank to began underwater maneuvers.**** This can be done at anytime, I traveled the Ocean floor to a Depth of 545 Meters, you might like to do this then Jettison the Ore Tank, do this step whenever you like.

  11. Hi Kerbonauts , I have a challenge for you. The challenge is simple, yet hard to complete! The challenge is to land two submarines on laythe and dock them in Laythe's Sagen Sea. The only mods you are allowed to have are Firespitter (for the propellers it contains), and Ballistanks (so that the subs will sink). You need to provide a screenshot of the subs docked in the Sagen Sea. Note: Laythe is One Of Jools Moons! A badge will be awarded to the winners. (only 2). The winners are the first 2 people to submit a qualifying entree. You can also use Kerbal Joint Reinforcement and Kerbal Engineer Redux! HAVE FUN! UPDATE: Submarine Systems Is now an allowed mod! Good Luck, Gelix You Are also allowed to use balastanks-extended If you prefer!
