    SSTO Eve no docking or refueling

    LOL yesss I don't remember exactly, but after 1.04, i was unable to SSTO Eve with my old ship... but when i tried again in 1.3, that was ok ! So i tried to scale down because the "vector" engine is exactly the same isp as the "mammoth", and because i wanted to try something new BTW the weight is 4 tons for 1000 Kn on the "Vector", vs 15 tons for 4000 Kn for the "Mammoth', so on the paper the Vector is not so good... but in fact in 1.3, even if that's still very hard to SSTO Eve, i'm sure this is easier than in 1.04 ! The key is also to have the less possible drag, and the "Strake" wings seems to be very good for lift/drag ratio My two cents...

    SSTO Eve no docking or refueling

    Hi @Kergarin The big difference with wings is that you can takeoff with a smaller than 1 twr... That's why i choose that ! as you can see, the twr of my "little" Eve SSTO is 0.86 at takeoff...

    MK3 Cargo Bay Eve Challenge

    I don't find the old post, but there is a Foxster ship that is almost the same ! But for this one on KSP 1.3.1 i had to make a lot of changes... maybe not the best ascent path too, but that was very funny Congrat's Foxster !

    Falcon Heavy to Duna

    Hi All Here is the Part One of my attempt... I wanted to test a KSP version of SpaceX Falcon 9 Heavy, so this challenge was a very good idea !!! I know i will not make a highscore, (boosters on barges and second stage on KSC... not exactly what was asked lol), but i enjoyed playing with this craft and coding with KOS for several hours to achieve this goal... Thanks to @Gotbread For the video and KOS code KSP + kOS SpaceX Falcon9 automated barge landing I used a lot, and And @only_to_downvote on Reddit for the KOS FUNCTION TimeToImpact I will make a Part Two video with the journey to Duna and the "Tesla" Spin ASAP And Happy New Year for all of you !!!
