    Jool is a gigantic plant lifeform

    I mean there's chestburster graphic, and then there's knowing that something horrible has happened off-camera. Original Solaris tends to be the latter

    This was an impressive achievement/test of patience Buuut I have to wonder why you didn't use the fastest wheels xD
  3. Anything that wants ore from Eve delivered to somewhere that isn't Eve ¬_¬

    Since it's already been necro'd, let me just say how glad I am that someone else has sat through the original Russian version of Solaris (with subs) Those of you that haven't, you possibly should. It's a little artsy in that it uses silence to make a statement, so you'll either love it or hate it. Either way, it should be on the list for any Kerbal fan imo. It isn't graphic at all, but it sure is creepy

    What did you do in KSP today?

    Managed to put World of Warcraft down for a bit ¬_¬ As per standard procedure, the transfer stage doubles as a communications relay, and is left with just enough fuel to park in an inclined, eccentric orbit around Otho where we hope it won't get hoovered up by a moon. Spice scans of Augustus came back inconclusive; there's definitely orange dust down there, but we can't tell from the spectrum analysis whether it's a new taste sensation, or just rusty dirt. Mission control requests funding for a kermanned mission to follow. As befits middle-children, Otho Explorer didn't linger much around Hephaestus, barely finishing its radar scans of the surface before hastening on to the slightly more glittery-looking smallest sibling. Upon reaching final orbit, this mission concluded with about then tightest fuel budget control has ever worked with. Turns out someone in flight planning didn't account for polar orbits when they were working out the transfer costs from moon to moon, with the result that Otho Explorer just barely squeaked into Jannah orbit with 17m/s spare in the tank.

  6. Is it possible to at least choose delete or quit immediately? We probably don't expect a problem and would like chance to fix our install without digging out backups...
  7. Does this mean that the game no longer deletes incompatible vessels upon loading? Or was that a fix for the VAB+SPH?

    What funny/interesting thing happened in your life today?

    Turns out it is... KSP goes from ~30% GPU load to 100% with Scatterer xD

    They could turn it into one of those indoor street-food places, maybe have a waterslide going around the edge Or maybe just a posh hotel. Either way the modern building should be made by the local council; lots of concrete and those nice plastic chairs you get in schools. Or put Scatterer back in... although I'm not 100% sure whether that's CPU or GPU loading.

    V for Vendetta had a point imo. We should demolish that thing, it's just a status symbol for all the old-money millionaires who work in it. Should make them work in something the council built

    In the UK our fireworks celebration (aside from new year) is Guy Fawkes night on Nov 5th. Fireworks are usually on sale in supermarkets by middle of October, and start going off basically the moment they're available. Sometimes at 2 in the afternoon, sometimes at 2 in the morning. There is no reason to it, especially the daylight ones, but that doesn't seem to deter people from doing it. Once someone (seemingly by accident) set off an entire box in the park across the road from my house and a huge column of multicoloured fire went up while the owners picked themselves up off the grass nearby. They looked a bit scorched and I got a good laugh out of it despite being woken up I think we do have limits on the size of fireworks that can be sold, and there's a lot of calls to completely ban them in shops because of this kind of behaviour... (Also I sometimes wonder why we celebrate failing to blow up the houses of parliament...) Oh, interesting thing... I finally swapped my AMD Ryzen for an Intel 8700K and overclocked it to 5ghz. It's um... quite a bit quicker at KSP. I was getting 12.5 "internal fps" on a particular flight, and now it bounces 30-45. That's more improvement than I expected. Yellow clock begone!
  12. Out of interest @Messernacht what did you do?
  13. To be fair, the difference between putting Karborundum on other bodies vs being able to make it from ore is very small Also I think the resources may generate when you start a game... it's possible that you can't just add it later. Maybe.
