  1. My new record in KSP Speed Tech Tree Run 4 Day, 2H, 40m to unlock all science... with moar boosters !!! lol (Normal Career game mode, science from Kerbin, Mun and Minmus) Fly safe with Valentina
  2. Hi @Pds314 and all I made a Full science normal career mode speedrun about a week ago, but i'm sure my first Mun landing was not as quick as you Less than 9 days to unlock all science Fly safe with Valentina !
  3. 6 big fuel cells array under the fairing ? i just made a "copy" of this plane (11.5 Tons) and it works !!! awesome @chargan
  4. O M G .... xD Congrat"s @EvermoreAlpaca !!! The Vall lander with one ion engine + batteries staging is awesome
  5. Hi @Kergarin and all More than ok for me, it's a very good idea to put all the Eve's SSTO videos on a single story trade !!! Thank you very much for this excellent work Fly safe with Valentina
  6. Hi all Hummm... Jebediah was really sad to not land on Ike on my last mission So i made him a new optimized version of the Duna Light ship ! Less fuel, no docking ports, 2 more solar panels, more xenon... and a little less mass. So here is a new optimized mission direct to Duna + Ike and back with a 3.955 T. ship ! ( The last one for me on this challenge, i promise ) Fly safe with Valentina !
  7. Thank you very much @Johnster_Space_Program !!!
  8. Hi all 3.998 T. Ok for Duna and back in command chair xD (but not enough for Ike grrrr... ) Here is the video ! Fly safe with Valentina
  9. 1 hour 38mn of raw video for the full recorded mission, trying to make a 15mn max Youtube video.... i hope to put it online tomorrow
  10. Hi all Ship ready to go.... 3.998 T (without Kerbal onboard) I will try to do the challenge with it and make a video this Week-End if possible Fly safe with Valentina !
  11. I was so close... so i replaced the 700 xenon tank by 2 x 400, new fairing to keep the weight ok with valentina onboard to be under 3T, and.... 5189m/s xD The "new" rocket: Fly safe with Valentina
  12. Same rocket, my best try 4935m/s (without jetpack)... not enough to have the high score lol grrrr Fly safe with Valentina
  13. Hi all a little more than 3700m/s in escape orbit with this rocket on the first try but could be better with a good last PE burn and better flight plan... xD : Fly safe with Valentina
  14. WOW !!! Congrat's @EvermoreAlpaca well done
  15. 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...
  16. 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...
  17. Hi All "Light" Stock EVE SSTO in KSP 1.3.1, that was hard and "hot", but done again Jebediah is on a command chair under the shell. (you can see the top of her helmet in the shell...) Youtube video: Ship Landed with HyperEdit on highest Eve mountain, and manually piloted to orbit this time... Full Stock ( Craft File in the Youtube description ) Fly safe with Valentina !!!
  18. 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 !
  19. Hi All Eve Challenge.... mmmh All the data in the album --> https://imgur.com/a/8HICJ That was very tight !!! Fly safe with Valentina
  20. lol, i'm a young 52 years old ksp player, but i remember as if that was yesterday my dad asking me to wake up at 4am to see the men on the moon on the tv in France !!! i was 4 years old , that was awesome !
  21. Remembers me my Tylo landing in the Jool 5 Challenge... that was really tight, and i had to make a lot of F9 keypress ;-) look at the fuel left... Tylo IS a hard part of the game !
