After spending quite a bit of time with the free version of KSP, I finally landed on the moon (using mods) after seeing how awesome this was, I bit, and purchased the full version.
No surprise here, however, as it is seriously amazing. However, I cannot build a descent flying ship at all. I understand the asperagus staging system, which works well, but I cannot add onto the ship without actually making it slower/not go as far.
So, I now cannot even land on the moon in the game. I really need help, design tips, plans, ideas, anything.
