    The Kerbinator
  1. The music is "The Gael" by Dougie MacLean and it was used in Last of the Mohicans.
  2. "God speed John Glenn" may well become the most tweeted phrase ever, which is a shame, because I like to remember him by another phrase. "No handball playing in this area". He was one of my childhood heroes, and one of the best generally.
  3. Just back from seeing the film. As someone who loved the book I thought the film was spot on, walking a perfect line between geek stuff and keeping a mainstream audience happy. Although I can't help thinking that if everyone in the film had painted their face green this would pretty much have been a live action version of Kerbal Space Program.
  4. Forgive me if this has been answered already, but is there a way to add the docking camera to docking ports from other mods? I'm using Chaka Monkey's parts and the ports from that don't have the cameras.
  5. With that canyon Charon is starting to look like Dres.
  6. Don't you know? Interstellar is the prequel for Wall-E.
  7. Okay, maybe I'll take a break from the Moho spacecraft. I've got an Orion that can do the round trip but getting anything bigger is a challenge that I haven't managed to beat yet. Maybe I'll go back to Jool for a while, that'll be easy by comparison...
  8. Fortunately it doesn't have the wibbily-wobbily problem that stock rockets have. There's 16,000 Delta V in that but I really need to make it a bit smaller!
  9. My Moho return Orion is already looking a little bigger than that...
  10. Working on a manned lander to Moho and an Orion to return both launched from a single launcher using these parts. I'm also avoiding any elaborate rockets such as asparagus and only building rockets that look like actual rockets. 16000 Delta-V. Who would have thought frustration could be so much fun!
  11. I'm still looking for the following parts to make the adjustment. Anyone know what they are? Radiator System Type Z Radiator System type X Engine Mount for RS-68
  12. I've checked it myself again, here's the exterior & interior views: I may also have found a little problem with the CHAKA/NOS Altair Explorer pod. It doesn't seem to have a crew hatch that's clickable to allow transfers without EVA. But still, this is a great mod and I love it!
  13. Possible bug. I've noticed that the view from the windows of the Ares when in IVA mode is 180 degrees off. When it was pointed at the sky during re-entry I could see the ground going past the window. It's a tiny thing, and it doesn't distract from this being the best new mod in ages.
  14. The torpedo idea gets my vote as well. Brilliant idea!
