  1. Distant Object is the mod you're looking for. I know I was able to see my satellites in Kerbin orbit from the KSC just fine, at night of course.
  2. These are stock. FAR takes less than this, actually. To orbit Kerbin in FAR you'll need about 3000-3300m/s
  3. I think the CERN institute should have it's own TV channel so it would be separated from all the junk we have in news these days. Only the big discoveries would be covered by regular TV stations, so it's a win-win situation for everybody.
  4. I'd make a huge enough body for it to have it's own gravitational field, so I could have a station orbiting my artificial-moon station which is orbiting a moon which is orbiting a planet which is orbiting a star
  5. I really like those contracts. It forces you to learn how to rendezvous which is crucial for bigger missions (interplanetary let's say). One time a I rescued a female pilot named Natalee Kerman, which is funny because that's the name of the main sidekick character in my book. So she's right up there with Val and Jeb. Val got to the Mun first, Jeb to Minmus and Nat to Duna
  6. Why not something like Kepler? To put it in the same orbit like Kerbin, only slightly slower/higher.
  7. I run it both on EVA and IVA on default settings, it's a good G-force gauge. And besides, it looks cool
  8. There's the problem. It says it doesn't exist in the game anymore, too bad though...
  9. You could build a base on it. And if you're unsure what to build, ask the community to design modules and implement them in your game
  10. I usually consider the atmospheric drag to be noticeable until 35km, after that it's like you're in space already. But reading these statements on ascending angles, I should probably limit the thrust on my rocket to prevent them from going 800m/s at 30km
  11. The ALCOR capsule with RPM is what I'd like to see. But apart from that, KAS and KIS would be nice.
  12. I have aerobraked on Duna in 1.0.2 with a periaps at about 20km and now that I think about it, the drag was a bit more than I expected. But nothing so extreme as Kerbin's 30km atmosphere. I guess it depends on the look of your spacecraft, if it's wider then of course the drag is higher.
  13. Oooh, that's majestic. I myself hadn't unlocked the mining equipment yet in career, and I don't play sandbox much, so... sorry, nothing for you.
