Thanks KSP team :)

518 posts in this topic

This was from another post I made, but it fits here with a few tweaks.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hello, I\'m just a 13-year old in 7th grade that knows more about orbits than my science teacher. And all of that came from KSP. I also landed on the Mun at least 6 times before patched conics. (I also got a 76% average in Spanish, but I know more than most of my classmates. I got a 76 \'cause I didn\'t do most of my homework \'cause of KSP. :-[) I really think this is almost as intuitive as it gets.

The MOST important part of the game is the beginning. Thats where players are introduced to the game mechanics (not literally :D ). Its not when you suddenly get a calculator and it tell you to do this and that. Players are not interested in the main story right now. They are going to be getting used to the controls/what to do. The best advice about the beginning you can get is:

[glow=red,2,300]MAKE NO ASSUMPTIONS ABOUT THE PLAYER.[/glow]

The player might not even know that Kerbin is round. Or he might be Stephen Hawking. But NO MATTER who they are, they get KSP easily. This is why we like KSP. And keep up the good work, HarvesteR & co.

I want to thank the KSP team for adding Minmus. It really added a sense of discovery that wasn\'t instilled in me since I tried to explore the mun (which ended fairly soon, since there wasn\'t much undocumented by the community)

Then Minmus came. A weird (!!SPOILER DO NOT READ FROM THIS POINT IF YOU HAVENT VISITED IT. SERIOUS!!) ice asteroid (not even a moon) that I just came and are now exploring in my Homurus 1 craft and being awed at how different and lonely it is. It might be in Kerbin orbit, but it is so beautiful and lonely and makes me think I am exploring a distant planet. I am really excited. And keep in mind this is me posting from the first time I got there and only orbiting.

Good job Squad.

This is undoubtedly the best build-your-own-ship flight simulator out there! And the fact that it\'s an indie game in alpha, makes that tittle even more impressive. I can\'t wait to see what the awesome developers at Squad will implement by the time it\'s fully released.

Thank you SQUAD, for creating an experience that has had me laughing, crying, raging, giggling and staring awestruck at my screen for hours on end.

Thank you for providing me the most worthwhile source of entertainment I have ever spent £10 pounds on.

Thank you for creating a game so wonderful that it has attracted like-minded individuals to come together into this wonderful community where we share our creative writing, our artwork, our creations and our add-ons, a forum where we are free to let our imaginations loose and suggest the coolest, most intuitive or simply bonkers ideas we come up with.

Thank you for inspiring me to become as active as possible in the forums, I now try to post something everyday just so I can feel like I\'m contributing to the development of a game that I believe has, quite possibly, the most potential for greatness out of anything I\'ve seen before.

But most of all? Screw you all, for taking over my life and depriving me of sleep!

I\'m just kidding, thank you so much for this wonderful experience. Kerbal Space Program is amazing, and is only going to get better.

I wanted to thank you for creating such a wonderful simulation. I have been looking for something like this for such a long time! I love space so much, but I could never find anything that was this accurate and beautiful. I thank you so much!

Thank you Team KSP for creating the greatest game of the second millennium, nay, all of history.

I cannot resist this, but i must point this out.

0-1000 is the first millenium.

1000-2000 is the second millenium.

2000-3000 is the third, and current, millenium.

In regards to KSP, rushing is the demon of the game industry, for all i care they can use all the months they want perfecting these updates.

To HarvesteR and all of the original dev team: Thank you for making not only the game you wanted, but the game I wanted.

To everyone who has more recently joined: The game looks and plays great.

To C7Studios: Figuring out spaceplanes was like figuring out rockets back in the .7 days and just as much fun

To NovaSilisko: Your mods were awesome. I expect great things from you, kid. Don\'t let me down (no pressure)

Thanks, everyone at Squad, for finding a way to make rocket science appeal to people through an innovative and fun way. It\'s been awesome playing this game, and I\'ve learned a lot more about rocketry than I knew when I started - For example, my early plan to get to the Mun was \'Point the shuttle in the general direction of the Mun and wait\', whereas now i understand orbital mechanics and such.

Great point! I am proud to say KSP has greatly increased my rocketry knowledge, and thereby my interest in the subject!

I wanted to drop by and say thanks to Squad for making a game that I spend most of my waking hours thinking about or playing. You guys deserve a lot more praise than I can give you, and though I haven\'t yet bought the game, I hope to do so soon. You guys are awesome!

You guys are awesome. You\'re approachable, you answer questions, and most of you (Harv is probably the only one that this DOESN\'T apply to) came from where most of the forum are now. Thank you all so much, and I can\'t wait to see what the future brings.

:cheers:

I have really been enjoying the views through the open doors of the assembly buildings. That first time I entered the VAB and saw the launch pad off in the distance...amazing. Thanks so much you guys, and keep up the great work.

I would also like to express my gratitude towards everyone at Squad.

Thank you so much for working so hard on this game and listening so well to all of our suggestions and comments. It is really unlike any other game I have seen before in this respect. Not to mention the sheer entertainment value of the game in its current (and unfinished!) state. I have recommended KSP to all of my friends who are into space, science, and/or videogames. This is a truly wonderful thing you have created.

I would just like to close up by saying that I am looking forward to the .16 update more than I have ever looked forward to any other game or update to any game before. The suspense is killing me, but I know it will all be worth it!

Thank you again, from a fan that will remain life-long.
