    Re: Manual??

    This is no manual at this time since the game is in Alpha stage. Too many things can change and change so fast that it would create an insane amount of work keeping it up to date.

    Browse the forums, there are many videos and tutorials on using KSP to do various things.

    That sinking feeling you get when the resident Community Manager tells you there is no manual...

    As someone who never read the game manual until about after the fifth day of play at the minimum, I say, \'We don\'t need a stinkin\' manual!\'

    Until Blizzard came along and threw in stories of lore in their manuals. Sneaky bastards.

    No gamer resorts to the manual except as an absolute last resort when you\'re completely stuck. They\'re mostly useless anyway. You want to know 'How do I get the merchant to sell me things?' but the manual is just full of stuff like, 'To save the game, click on the save game button.'

    Besides, what kind of manual could this game have at this point?
    Chapter 1: Space travel - subject to revision
    Chapter 2: EVA - not finalized
    Chapter 3: Moon colonization - to be determined
    Chapter 4: Interplanetary travel - not implemented yet
    Etc.

    I\'ve been asking myself that for two days during the last week. Yesterday I landed on Mun with Jeb on board and returned safely to Kerbin. The whole point in a starting space program that there IS NO manual. =P

    Well, there\'s an awful lot of ways. My personal favourite is the rocket jump, which is when you make a huge stack of fuel tanks explode below a command module that\'s placed in exactly the right position to put it in orbit. Well, in theory. I haven\'t ever actually found the correct position. But it MUST exist!
    there's nothing here.
