  1. So beyond a passing similarity, which is totally and completely lost on me, what is it you want to imply?!?
  2. Dream Chaser to launch on Atlas V

    I sincerely hope they are aware of that. Not that they are building a design error into that flying contraption of theirs... We wouldn't want that, would we...???
  3. Kerbal Space Program 1.4.2 is live!

    FWIW for me at least, both 1.3.1 as well as 1.4.2 run quite stable. I have not had any CTDs yet. The bugs remain tho. So yeah, to be fair, while bugged to a point, where I sometimes give up frustratedly because e.g. I have to find the next rocket plume or so, I wouldn't go so far as to say it is unplayable.
  4. So does that mean that SD is dead?

    1. theonegalen


      I've been trying to figure that out myself.

      Would be a shame though, allthough it kinda runs on 1.4.2... Also, why did I write a status update... Meant to send you a PM....

      I dunno, did you click the "Write a Public Message" or the "Message" box?

  5. Landing spaceplanes on Duna.

    Yeah, okay. You can still take it as a reference, tho...
  6. Supersonic RC-Plane does is possible?

    As an operator of hobby rc planes you are legally required to maintain visual contact with aircraft at all times. At least that is the case in Germany. That pretty much precludes supersonic planes. Aside from the other legal ramifications... Technically I believe it to be quite feasible, depending on the scale...

    Really need to learn flying space planes... Those look to good...
  8. Landing spaceplanes on Duna.

    The Lonesome Robots DADV also works just peachy for safe Duna landing.... It's a mix between space planes and rockets...
  9. Patch 1.4.3 to be released next week!

    That is so. But I would expect that the most glaring ones are being caught during the QA phase. Stuff like the exploring landing gear, broken RCS fx, is IMHO stuff, that should have been caught before release. I am no software engineer, but I have a fairly good knowledge about (project) management and I know that going double rounds on quality assurance costs way more. I guess I am mostly frustrated because instead of making the game better, in many ways they have made it worse (at least in my view). And while the bugs may all be fixable, what gets me is that this could have been avoided. Just a few more weeks of QA involving some experienced players and it could have been avoided to some extent.
  10. Patch 1.4.3 to be released next week!

    When KSP was in its pre-release stadium, I took all the bugs with a sense of humour seeing that there was a dedicated small team dabbling away on a new game, learning many things as they went. Then Squad moved onto Version 1.0, which IMHO indicates a full release. We still have bugs. Many of them. WIth the recent release, stupid many new bugs have been introduced. And especially with the recent takeover by Take 2, I had expected that certain things might be "professionalized". Instead I find that it does not get better, but worse. A shame. Why wasn't there any QA being performed? Why was there no pre-release, or an extended QA round by a select group of users? I do hope, that 1.4.3 brings a resolution to this mess, otherwise I will definitely loose the will to bother with this. Why, why, why... Frustrated greetings, - Sebastian
  11. [1.3.0] OPT Space Plane v2.0.1 - updated 29/07/2017

    I would guess, that you first install the main mod, then the configs. Usually all the established mod developers are providing you with an archive that is to be dropped into your KSP folder, merging it with the GameData-folder. Or you drop the actual mod itself into GameData, making sure that only the mod is there without any nested folders (i.e. a GameData folder inside gamedata). That's usually all there is to it...
