  1. I\'m a currently in my last year of high school right now and I\'ve found KSP, more so the forums has been very educational. It\'s been very good for the circular motion for physics and has greatly expanded my knowledge about orbits and delta v. Any other high schoolers using ksp?
  2. Well, I have a love affair with Neil deGrasse Tyson, and Doctor Karl http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Karl_Kruszelnicki Who are your favourites and why?
  3. A dare ice coffee (750ml) and some marshmallows, I\'ll have something to toast on re-entry
  4. There\'s soem good old jewels on Gog.com for a steal, like the older combat sims
  5. I don\'t think they do it for the money but rather because they can. It\'s The game is a steal for $15, it\'s easily going to be worth upwards of $50 when it is fully finished.
  6. When your rocket has struts used like duct tape just to keep the central fuselage together
  7. If you like gliding or are a glider pilot (Like me) you can\'t go wrong with condor. The graphics are dated but it is really immersive and realistic, with expertly modeled aircraft.
  8. Well, In a few hours I\'m going to be walking 4 days of the bibbulmun track. Got me thinking, who else hikes or enjoys other outdoor activities. Could someone please launch a few rockets into the mun for me while I\'m gone.
  9. FSX while dated has a huge number of addons and has a really good tutorial system. I\'d suggest it for beginners. For your combat sims you can\'t go wrong with Il-2, it\'s on gog for less than $10. Flanker, LO-MAC and the rest of the DCS stuff is really good but more complex than 50 tangled slinkeys. Be prepared for a world of hurt with those ones.
  10. I see your argument about being modular. It does help that many modern launch systems are quite modular, but in the long run I really can\'t see them getting any more efficient, but at least for the next decade or so, they are still the viable launch option.
  11. I loved the beginning, very good writing. However I felt that you had rushed it a bit towards the end. Overall it\'s really good and I\'m looking forwards to seeing more of your work soon.
  12. That is an amazing picture, one that if it had just *Few more* boosters would be the most kerbal thing ever.
  13. Hi guys, I made this as a proof of concept video a few days ago. Now that I have decent internets I have uploaded it to the world. As I was in a hurry footage was taken over half an orbit ans shamelessly spliced with some music from space night earth views. What do you think?
  14. The leading cause of death for my kerbals is unstable rockets. The kind that decide they don\'t want to be a rocket but rather an acrobat at around 10k\'s
  15. I stand corrected. His favourite food must be explosions
  16. I thought his favourite food would be beef jerky and beer. You know, the food of legends.
  17. I have over half a gig of photos, just from 0.14 onwards. I probably have around a gig in total if I can find them all.
  18. A very good comic. Nice to see some other people besides me appreciating aviators
  19. Scratch my first eva. IMMA NOW GONNA GO AND SCIENCE!!!! I wonder if kerbals hitting at 2km/s will create craters?
  20. Ahhh yes gravity... Ever tried doing your braking burn from 1000m/s at 20 k\'s with a low delta v engine. Long story short there\'s some interesting crates on the mun now.
  21. I thought about that, most of my other plane sthat are like this use the turbo fan.
  22. So, I found myself making an asshat of myself today while returning a rocket to kerbin and it got me thinking, what\'s everyone\'s stupidest mistake? Here\'s a few of mine: 1:Set up a rendevous only to launch the second rocket going the other way. 2: Launching from the mun, activated my next stage with the previous stage rockets still going. One flew straight into my fuselage and propelled me to about 5k\'s before it flew off. 3: Built a plane to go to the south pole, at 2x time acceleration just before the ice sheet it shook apart, I could pilot the wreckage but still killed the crew. That\'s all I can think of at any rate, but feel free to post yours. We won\'t judge you Honestly...
  23. I used to be an addon whore until version .14, then I started using stock, then gradually letting in mechjeb, then the cart addon, then finally the fixed camera addon.
