    What did you do in KSP today?

    I built an Underwater Drilling Rig like the one on the Motion Picture "The Abyss" DEEPCORE-7 Video - Thread

    DEEPCORE-7

    DEEPCORE7 K&S Technologies Group This project was inspired by the Drilling Rig DeepCore in the Motion Picture "The Abyss". I first started building an underwater base, got some ideas on what works underwater (Like what sinks what don't). Then I added drilling capabilities and refueling. The plan was to have Refueling Stations for a Submarine to have the ability to refuel for longer underwater adventures. I was going to set these up so that a Submarine could make trips around the near by Islands. As the project went on Versions changed and plans were changing. The DeepCore7 Rig works well but the Submarines where not cooperating. I plan to complete a small sub that will dock in the Rig's Docking Bay. This has been a really fun project for us and I would like to thank @klond for his time and work on this one. He once again has added input and craft that really help my projects come more alive! From K&S Technologies Group thanks for watching and we hope you enjoy our projects as much as we enjoy making and sharing them with you.

    Ore very necessary, and I never gave it any thought about getting it off Kerbin. I would say it’s doable.

    How to Submarine

    (Just putting the sub on the runway and it would tip over. I kid you not. Splaying the rear wheels fixed that problem) This is the Version switching that caused this. Each craft I build, it's built for that version and often not updated. Updating craft is something I don't do unless requested or if I like one enough to go back to I will do another release. (I also did the same for the front wheels because I would tip over coming out of the water as the rear wheels had not yet touched the ground. It did not seem to alter the crafts handling in any noticeable way.) This too is the Version switching that caused this. (Looking at your parts list I noticed that you had already fitted 2 ISRUs, so I assigned some action keys for them.) This is that not so good at giving direction on my craft, often I assume that others will try the action groups I have set. Not realizing that most may assume there not set. Again sorry about that laziness I have on craft release. I put so much time and effort in the craft builds and video this often goes to the wayside. (I also pulled your sub apart to see what else I missed.) Part slicing it what I often do, some are ok with it and some not. I think if you build a craft that's fun to play with then.......Mission accomplished! Hey thanks again for taking Scuba Do on an adventure and sharing it, that's too cool man

    Gotta hear this when you see the car!

    How to Submarine

    Not sure if you watched the video of Scuba Do, it shows some functions. Also it’s sitting sideways in the hangar so when you’re on the runway the sub will roll off the side with out tipping over. I noticed It’s a little shaky getting to the water but decided to leave it that way because it’s only momentarily. The video shows which Ore Tank to Jettison for proper operation. I am not too good at giving good directions for my craft I do apologize for that. Let me know if the tweaks work.

    All sounds A-Okay!.....I am staying tuned for updates!

    How to Submarine

  17. Often I use Lights to make a Space Station look really nice in the darkness of Space but when building a Station in the Hangars I only have a vague idea of what it will look like in Space because I can't get a preview of what it would look like in the Dark. I would like to suggest a Lights Out Setting for the Hangars to give us this ability.

    How to Submarine

    I don’t upgrade my craft for the latest versions of KSP but if requested I will for nearly anyone that I have on KSP or Kerbalx. Glad to see others enjoying the craft I build. If the Sub isn’t working I’ll update it soon.

    Dive into my hole

    Sure did! I mentioned it here. Unless it was mentioned somewhere else. aaaaaaahhhhh! It's not a floating sheet of ice!!! Didn't realize until after this that @DoctorDavinci had already reached the bottom of the hole......To be continued...
  20. Not sure, would need to research it
  21. Believe it or not I found parachutes accepting quite a bit of heat, might work if you haven't tried these.

    Diving Down.............oh the suspense!! aaaaaaahhhhh! It's not a floating sheet of ice!!! Didn't realize until after this that @DoctorDavinci had already reached the bottom of the hole......To be continued.......

    Dive into my hole

    YAY!!!.........NOT!.....This is a little embarrassing I hit save just before getting to the drop zone, the sub was tested and it can dive....BUT! I didn't take the time to do any test drops because I wanted to get to the hole tonight. Sooooo after a few F9's the best I could do was crash land just before the hole . On the other hand, I may have enough fuel to dive under the ice and pop up inside the hole!!!....stay tuned!

    Dive into my hole

    Plan changed, going with a small Submarine now, to a hole in the ground
