  1. Fired my bad kerbals to eve. If they survive they would never get home.
  2. Well mounted a rescue mission as you can see in the first image it did not start well. As for the rest of the day a rover just started morphing into a dragster with predictable results.
  3. Fired my redneck rover to Duna complete with robotic drill stand and transport erector for rocket.
  4. Its been a looong time since I played KSP. Trying to figure out an Eve return vehicle configuration. Frankenstein rocket hit 4000 m\s straight up out of Kerbin before engaging last ion stage. So we will see.
  5. Alien Abduction: You start off with a few Kerbs abducted and dumped in a distant solar system. They have to build up escape to another and another etc etc. to get home. Don't tie the user to just one solar system. Go the no mans sky route and create do some random system generation.
  6. Well a rover of mine never meant to return home was damaged in a rollover accident. There I was minding my own business when 4 sketchy looking rocks jumped out of the shadows and beat up my rovers solar panels. Well we changed the mission to return home to Kerbin in "Operation Drop Test". Things got sketchy but you can see how Jeb made out. The initial shot of jeb in pic 1 just shows enthusiasm.
  7. Finally built a smallish science ssto that I am happy with.
  8. I am kinda in the same boat for me though the small ssto's I loved are now the most difficult. The most basic small model I built is the following. You can build flying lawnchairs, but I prefer a degree of functionality. Here's a basic science ssto I am fleshing out. It's basically getting fleshed out as a dropship for laythe but it makes orbit around Kerbin. She's so basic the only parts not in the pic are the ram air intakes and landing gear. She flys out at a 20 degree climb. when it cuts over to rocket mode watch your apogee to 75-80 k cut engines, coast then circularize. Of course always fiddle around this tiny ssto is a pain to get off the ground and more so to fly, but can actually hit orbit.
  9. Most Everything went according to plan today. Most........
  10. MacGyver Kerman stick a two gear landing while the other two that snapped off explode in the background.
  11. I returned to flight after a year hiatus to see how things were. Spaceplanes definitely harder, but I got this little girl up as a test runner.
  12. Finally getting a Cadzilla variant worthy for 1.0. It has been more problematic than anticipated, but everything is now mostly ship shape. Testing deploying a rudimentary satellite to test the vehicles throw weight. Setting a standard deployment to build emergency recovery vehicle constellations.
  13. Loaded up FAR today to try their version of Aero. Small planes are still a chore, but I think the aerodynamics are more predictable albeit a tad more unforgiving.
  14. Yeah, I gave the term "flight departure" new meaning today.
  15. Since we are out of Dev I am officially re-building the Minimus farm. Fired up an Ooooold bird for the launch. Thankfully the roof racks on my offroad ride are gigantors I needed a lot more juice.
