Earth History Campaign

3 posts in this topic

Hello,

I just started Mission 1, Earth History Program yesterday and have a couple of problems.

Problem 1 - I haven managed to land back at the KSP yet although I have managed to parachute land about 60 km away. Yeah!

Question 1, Is it possible to land on the runway? If so how do I find the runway? Is it marked on the NavCom?

Problem 2 - Investigating the Sputnik crash site.

Question 1. How close do I have to fly to the crash site? How do I know when I've completed the mission? Am I supposed to try and land at the crash site or back at the Kerbal Space Centre?

Many Thanks

Reggae

Yes, it is possible to land on the runway. Your trajectory should take you quite near it. When you have entered atmosphere try to achieve level flight along the same trajectory you entered on. The runway should be somewhere to the front (maybe a little to either side) on a flat patch of land somewhere on the ocean shore.

Problem 2 - Investigating the Sputnik crash site.

Quite close. Simply fly directly towards the marker and a tutorial window should pop up when you are near enough. It also pauses the game so you can't crash even if you approach at high speed. No need to land.
