Kerbal Kalendar!

136 posts in this topic

Hello everyone,

The holiday season has started and we couldn’t be more excited. This is not only a season where we get to spend time with our loved ones and show them our appreciation, but it also has astronomical significance, because of the winter solstice, and that is one of the reasons why many cultures and civilizations have celebrated this season throughout millenia.

Surprisingly, Kerbin’s position and tilt in relation to Kerbol makes it very similar with planet Earth, till such degree that they also have a winter solstice in this season and Kerbals also celebrate it by giving gifts and building crafts! Kerbals even have a tradition similar to Earth’s Advent Calendar and naturally we wanted to share it with you all!

So, how is it going to be?

Each Tuesday and Thursday for the next three weeks, we will be uploading little surprises on our forum, which will be only available for download for a limited time (24 hours each). That is, 7 different collectibles, we want to you to have and enjoy.

The first 5 people to post evidence of their complete collection in this thread will be rewarded with a special giveaway.  }

We will be posting weekly reminders, so that you don’t miss out. With that said, stay tuned and start collecting.

Happy launchings,

 
- The KSP Dev Team
 
Now you can get the whole collection, just click for the collectible you want:

Kerbin has axial tilt and seasons? Are we announcing something?

But if Squad staff are going to tease us by suggesting Kerbin has axial tilt inspiring Kerbal celebrations, you can forgive us for salivating a bit. Throw in some snow, some wind, some Ferram Aerospace, n-body mechanics, maybe some relativistic length contraction and time dilation, and if we want to get really wacky, multiplayer...

There's actually a really good mod out there called Real Life, where everything obeys physics, economics, and getting into space is really hard. You get to play as an astronaut candidate and work for years as a pilot, engineer, or scientist before NASA chooses somebody more qualified than you to send into space instead. Maybe you start up your own small company living from one DARPA and ULA contract to the next, spending countless hours submitting grant proposals.

Link worked fine for me.

What browser/OS are you using? I couldn't get it to work on any of mine. Pinging @UomoCapra to see about the problem.

There is nothing to start since the two are not opposed.

 

Also RSS has no tilt since the way planet orbits are modelled doesn't allow it (also the reason why Uranus is boringly "upside-up"). All planets orbit normally but the ecliptic is inclined by 23.5° instead of the contrary.
