  1. Why are you around the kerbal forum

    Came for the game, stayed for the people.
  2. Ask the Mods questions about the Forums!

    Oddly enough, that makes you more qualified for the job. Perhaps I'm not understanding, but isn't this something that the bookmark feature of your browser handles nicely? Most browsers support synced bookmarks across devices already.
  3. SAS: Hold Horizon

    That's not what Persistent Rotation does, to my understanding. It closes the loophole of rotation stopping during timewarp, but doesn't change reference frames or anything. It doesn't do anything with SAS as far as I know. That said, I haven't used it in a while, maybe the scope of the mod has changed.
  4. SAS: Hold Horizon

    That does just about nothing for the primary use case for this idea: atmospheric craft. (Also, I believe Persistent Rotation keeps rotation constant in the inertial reference frame rather than the rotating reference frame.)
  5. Partially air-breathing engines

    "Air augmented rocket" is the concept being described. Atmosphere is used as reaction mass but not combusted, which increases specific impulse.
  6. A new type of mouse

    6DOF controls have been supported in KSP for a long time, both for camera control and for attitude/translation. It takes some getting used to but is great once you do. Would be hard to justify $260 when a SpaceNavigator is about $100. I suppose bit of a premium for combining it with a conventional mouse is OK, but personally I prefer the devices to be separate.
  7. [1.3.0] Kerbal Engineer Redux 1.1.3.0 (2017-05-28)

    In your pic the currently active stage has no active engines in it, so...
  8. KSP Forum Stereotypes

    Thread removed. Reason: NONE. Fear me!
  9. Moved this thread over to Gameplay Questions.
  10. Curse Client/Steam Workshop?

    @SamBelanger Thread is eight months old, please watch for the little warning that the thread is quite old when making a post to prevent bumping old threads where the conversation is long dead. Closed.
  11. Ask the Mods questions about the Forums!

    My guess would be add-on releases, it's by far the most active section of the forum and many people create an account just to ask a question or provide feedback there.
  12. How to Attach Pictures to Posts and Comments

    You have to host your images somewhere other than the forum. Imgur.com is popular but by no means the only option. Once hosted get the URL for the image itself (must end in .jpg, .png, .gif, etc) and paste it into a post and it will embed automatically.
  13. My two cents

    My understanding is runway ramps slope downward, not upward. Outside of a few edge cases like STOL carriers and airstrips meant to train for them.
  14. Imgur albums broken ... again?!

    Workaround button removed since this seems to be working now.
  15. Don't Click This

  16. NASA VS SPACEX

    You can't check IPs without tracking them. By nature you have to record the IPs to check against.
  17. SSTO Question

    https://www.dropbox.com/s/owde581dj1o4pcv/SSTLR4.craft?dl=0 This was made in 1.0.4, so some things may have changed a bit. It's also pretty difficult to get to orbit in the first place as it struggles to break the sound barrier.
  18. Development Update for Consoles!

    Not particularly. I would recuse myself from moderating a thread in which I'm an active participant as a matter of course.
  19. Development Update for Consoles!

    Being a mod has nothing to do with it. I am a player and community member first, and I think the point I am trying to make about tone of posts is an important one. I am not upset by this at all, it would take far more than that. Not sure how my posts here are not "upstanding" in your eyes, but at any rate I'm not going to avoid sharing my thoughts because I help moderate the forum.
  20. Development Update for Consoles!

    Point to the foul language in my post, I'll wait. On this point we are at last in agreement. This is where we started talking past each other I think, as my original post that you seemed to find so objectionable merely asked whether the poster thought this course of action would lead to more developer communication or less. I made no judgement about whether being rude was justified or not, just that it is not productive.
  21. Development Update for Consoles!

    Your strawman was constructed here, when you replied to my post responding to another person by asking a question and painted it as if I were saying that I think people should be obligated to buy rotten produce. Which is not what I said or implied. Be rude if you like, I have not said that you can't. I am saying that it is counterproductive to the goal of better/more communication with the people to which you seem to want to be rude. I guess you need to decide which is more important to you: Venting angst at developers or having a meaningful interchange with them. It doesn't matter how justified you feel the rudeness is, the fact of the matter is that it discourages further communication. For what it's worth this is not a phenomenon unique to the console part of the KSP community. In the early days of KSP the developers were frequent participants here on the forum, kicking around ideas and discussing feedback with players. As the community grew that changed, as people started taking every offhand comment as a gold plated promise, being insulting and non-constructive in feedback; generally just making the forum an environment that did not encourage the devs to speak at all. So they mostly stopped, and now instead of banter and an inside look at how the game is developed we get carefully phrased developer notes that have probably passed through PR and legal departments before going public. To some degree I think this effect is inevitable as a community grows beyond a certain size, as the audience grows the Greater Internet <curse>wad Theory* becomes more and more relevant. Can't believe I have to straight-facedly argue that being rude is not a good thing. *This is one of the times when I wish I could link adult content here, but look for a Penny Arcade comic entitled "Green Blackboards (And Other Anomalies)" and you'll find what I'm talking about. John Gabriel's observation that "normal person + anonymity + audience = antisocial behavior" is as true today as when he posited it thirteen years ago, sadly.
  22. Multiplayer Support

    The solution is neither rigorous nor complete, just a least-bad implementation. Multiplayer time warp is and will always be: Sync issues or waiting, choose one. That said, I don't think it's a deal breaker that would prevent a MP KSP implementation. We put up with a lot of quirks in KSP, a few in MP would not be a big deal. I would likely never play multiplayer, but it seems to be one of those ideas that is constantly in demand so I guess it could be successful.
  23. How do i restore physics.cfg file back to default?

    Welcome aboard! Just have steam validate your files or copy physics.cfg out of the zip file for KSP.
  24. Is KSP dying?

    I'm not sure what you're playing at here but don't do it again. Closed.
  25. Imgur albums broken ... again?!

    Just checking in on this issue, I was able to paste an album URL into a post and it embedded automagically. Is anyone still having trouble with it?
