  1. KSP Version 1.0.0.830 (WindowsPlayer) OS: Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (6.1.7601) 64bit CPU: Intel® Xeon® CPU W3530 @ 2.80GHz (4) RAM: 12286 GPU: ATI FirePro V4800 (FireGL) Graphics Adapter (1013MB) SM: 30 (Direct3D 9.0c [aticfx32.dll 8.17.10.1315]) RT Formats: ARGB32, Depth, ARGBHalf, RGB565, ARGB4444, ARGB1555, Default, DefaultHDR, ARGBFloat, RGFloat, RGHalf, RFloat, RHalf, R8 What Happens After using a 6DOF device (SpaceMouse Pro) in the VAB, parts that are selected from the menu appear directly behind where they were clicked on the menu and cannot be selected. Console returns error "[EditorLogic]: Selected Part was lost for unknown reasons! This is possibly unwanted behaviour." Mods Stock Steps to Replicate 1. Move camera with 6DOF device (don't know if this happens with other devices, this is the only one I have) 2. Try to grab a part from the parts menu Other Pastebin link of output.log http://pastebin.com/6LCxbuTf Screenshot (capsule in lower right corner behind the console is editable, the one on the top left is not.)

    0.17 Easter eggs

    Are those lines in the upper left a diagram of tangent to orbit, phase angle, and ejection angle to get to ... something?
  3. You need a Kethane Controller and a detector on your rocket, and I've had issues if the controller was attached anywhere other than the command pod.

    The origins of KSP

    HarvesteR and Moach are brothers, and they used to make matchstick rockets to launch tinfoil men that they called Kerbals. Harv always wanted to make a sandbox rocket game that would grow into a full-fledged game and you're in on the ground (or maybe 7th or 8th) floor.
  5. I think I remember some pictures from back in the .08 or .09 days of people at NASA with KSP up on their screens (not in mission control,) probably more as a shout-out than slacking at work, but I could be remembering wrong.

    [UNOFFICIAL/FANMADE] 0.17 Discussion Thread 2

    I assumed it would be copyrighted or trademarked, but there have been a bunch of products trademarked by the name in the US (none related to Dune) and the only current one is for a stylized logo by a clothing company. http://tess2.uspto.gov/bin/showfield?f=doc&state=4002:8i8272.2.1 I can't find a simple registered trademark search on the Mexican government's intellectual property page, but my Spanish isn't the greatest.

    It looks like it's celebrating! Any chance that you're setting up orbits so that some sort of grand tour is possible with some regularity?

    Minimalistic Mun challenge?

    This challenge is pointless with the .16 fuel consumption bug. I just made it to the Mun and back with Jeb surviving using only a capsule, small 1m fuel tank, and aerospike, no parachute. The extraordinarily slow ascent/descents took two hours of realtime and 4 beers, but I have video as long as I didn't screw up with CamStudio

    How did you find out about Kerbal Space Program

    Back in the grand old days when NASA could launch its own astronauts into space, a bunch of us nerds on Something Awful were lamenting the fact that although the Space Shuttle program was incredibly flawed and NASA screwed up a couple of times and thank God the Cold War is over and the Air Force has the X-37B and can leave the civilian space program alone with its impractical demands, it was better than nothing. Suddenly, someone posted an incredible video in the STS-135 thread about a game in development in which you could build your own ridiculous rockets out of about 10 parts and it was free! At that point I downloaded KSP 0.74

    Model Rocketry Thread

    What this guy said. I ordered a bunch of parts from Apogee Rockets and threw that together. In retrospect, I poured way too much lead shot into the nosecone for ballast and will probably need to replace it before it flies.
  11. Same here. Great stick for KSP and arcade flight games (HAWX,) too much of a dead zone for hardcore flight sim fans, though. Also, I tried binding attitude controls to the rotation axes of a 3dConnexion SpaceMouse Pro and translation to the linear axes, but it\'s way too sensitive and produces a sort of rocket epilepsy.

    Model Rocketry Thread

    Just like the folks above me said, once they burn out (and the main engine is still burning) the boosters will fall away due to gravity. It could be a challenge to make them fall away and make the parachutes deploy on time, but the whole thing cost maybe $15 and I\'m OK losing it as long as it doesn\'t hurt anyone.

    Model Rocketry Thread

    I also decided to get back into rocketry thanks to KSP. Here\'s my first rocket since high school. The perspective is a bit funny, the rocket is 18' long and my wrist most certainly isn\'t as fat as it looks in this picture. The boosters are designed to fall away after burnout R7-style. I\'m not sure if I want to risk flying it without testing the attachment points, I might build a test rig and point it at the sand in the blast pit in my back yard (I was tired of reseeding scorched lawn after setting off firework so I built a blast pit.) High explosives detonate (blast front propagates faster than the speed of sound,) low explosives deflagrate (burn with a subsonic shock wave.) That said, Semtex and most plastic explosives will burn rather than detonating if ignited without the impact of a blasting cap.

    Show off your awesome KSP Pictures

    The delta-v savings of a good launch tower can\'t be neglected.
