DOWNLOAD

There are now two versions. One about the size of a mystery goo container, and one about the size of an Earth banana. When you hit download it gives you the big one - if you want the small when, get it from the file section and click on changelog so you know which one to download

how do you keep the kerbals from eating it?

Umm, that's a tricky one. I'll have to leave it to your imagination. Lasers may work though ;)

that banana seems a little bit larger than other bananas, but it's hard to tell from the picture. can we have another banana for scale?

Haha, yeah it is a fair bit bigger than normal bananas. If you add rescaleFactor = 0.2 to the config, it will be a more realistic size.

I was under the impression that Kerbals were very short individuals to begin with (cough-cough-my-avatar). who's to say this banana is not genuine?

I agree it ought to be a bit smaller, especially given the "for scale" in the name. Giant mutant bananas don't do so well at providing a sense of scale.

Is there a TAC config for this yet? ;) (j/k)

Awesomely awesome and pointless thing you've made here. Have a cookie. (Wait, can a banana really be pointless?)

Jeb: That's one huge banana.

Mission Control: That's what she said.

Actually, lets stop for a moment and look at the facts here. This is a banana from our perspective, but one thing you fail to take into consideration is that the "banana" is the offspring of a plant which grows on the planet "Earth" and claiming that this specimen, which only resembles the banana we all know, is not at its correct scale is utterly ridiculous. On a planet which is smaller than our own moon, and oddly enough still contains the same gravitational pull as our larger planet does, we have to assume that the plant life would take a few turns in directions we cannot predict.

As for keeping them from eating it, well... how do we even know that a kerbal can properly digest the flesh of this banana-like specimen? It could be horribly toxic.
