  1. Launch of the Utility Truss and its two Solar Arrays from KSC. The fairing is kind of big, but I suppose it could be worse... This launch vehicle is the same one used for the Scipio spacecraft on lunar missions and is likely to become a workhorse of this project. Keeping with my naming scheme of using Roman figures and terms, this rocket is named Princeps, after the type of soldier which filled the second line of the Polybian legion of the middle Republic. I really do hate to make such a big fairing for what really amounts to such a small craft, but I suppose I ha
  2. About a year ago I was quite an active poster on the forums, I regularly made new ships and uploaded them here, and I enjoyed the game quite a bit. However a combination of increased schoolwork and a poorly timed burnout caused me to slowly withdraw from activity here, and I dropped Kerbal Space Program in favor of other games that didn't require me to think quite as much. To me, there just wasn't anything I felt like doing in the game anymore. Having played the game since version 0.20, I had sent countless landing missions to the Mun, assembled several space stations, and built an endless fle
  3. I'll make one more quick post here regarding my efforts to get back in, and then any future posts about this station I'll make in Mission Reports, since it seems more appropriate there than here. The second module contains extra radiators and solar cells (modeled after the Scipio type), as well as four docking ports and a small set of ore tanks so I don't have to wait to send a dedicated storage module over before I can begin making ground bases. The delivery vehicle is just a modified Scipio service module, with the rendezvous radar (or what is intended to represent it) mo
  4. I am (maybe) back from the abyss, after not playing this game for so long, for so many different reasons. I don't know if I can really count this post as a WIP craft since I don't know if I want to publish these craft or not, I really just made them in order to try and shake off this KSP burnout I've had for the last eight months or so, but all the same, I do want to try and get back into enjoying KSP to the same degree I used to, and that involves posting on the forums again, so here I am, and here this is... This is the core module of my new space station, named Marius, in orbit ar
  5. *trying to remember post from a year and a half ago* I... think it was the Sparviero, the three engined Italian bomber...
  6. There have been 45 US Presidents, but only 44 people have actually become President. This is because Grover Cleveland was elected to two nonconsecutive terms, the first in 1884 and the second in 1892, making him both the 22nd and the 24th President. While most presidents retire from politics after leaving office, William Howard Taft went on to become the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court after his presidency, and it was actually that job that he had always aspired to, not the Presidency. The state of Maine was originally a part of Massachusetts (even though the two don't border each
  7. Look, I swear I wasn't TRYING to make an F-4 Phantom... it... just sort of came out that way. Okay, maybe the napalm canisters were intentional... and the anhedral elevators... But that's it! The missiles are't working very well, one of them always seems to fly off course (in this case it was the top one). Fortunately the wings keep this from being a solid F-4 replica and make it more of an unlicensed knock-off. It's not the best dogfighter, but it's fast enough that I guess it would make sense to use it as an interceptor.
  8. Hi, to insert pictures all you need to do is upload the desired screenshot to an image hosting website such as imgur and then copy and paste it into your post.
  9. I did a bit more work on the little VTOL tonight, but I still don't have a real name for it, so I'll leave it to you to come up with that I replaced the engine with an afterburning Panther, so it has a little more power (it can do a near-vertical takeoff now, as long as you engage the rear engines quickly), and the option for an afterburner. I imagine the best way to aim these bombs is through dive bombing, but since this is a VTOL you may have trouble with that... I also added a discreet safety parachute in case the craft becomes uncontrollable at low altitu
  10. Sorry, I'm still fixing problems with both. It's been a long time since I've made a craft for the forums, and I don't want my rustiness to rub off on the craft, especially if you're using them in a video. If there are any particular things you want added to either of them though, feel free to point them out.
  11. Maybe you might like something like this? It's a strategic bomber in the style of a 1950s-1960s bomber like the B-52 or Tu-16. There's still some issues, it rolls to the left and it climbs very poorly, also it naturally tends to pitch downwards unless you hold down the S key. It takes full afterburner to reach cruising altitude, and it has a very long runway roll. I'm also not quite sure if I like the look of it, I'm not sure I've nailed the Cold War bomber look. I also don't have a name for it, if you like it you can name it whatever you want. There's also this, a smal
  12. For 4th generation fighters, this is the only acceptable answer
  13. So is this a modern naval setting or Cold War or WW2? I could use this as an opportunity to get back to building craft for the forum, I just want to know the context behind this series. Doesn't make much sense to have a supersonic jet fighter in a WW2 setting, does it?
  14. It takes a mod, and to be honest I have no idea if it still works, but if it does you'll have the finest submarine replica on the forum at your disposal.
  15. Geez, I really should get back in the game. I've sort of lost my passion for it over the last few months, so much of my time has been devoted to schoolwork, and what little time I have to play games is typically devoted to other things anyway. I do feel like playing KSP again, but I'm sort of at a loss as to what I can do that hasn't been done already...
  16. Okay. No idea if these still work in the latest version of KSP. I've been away from KSP for so long that I'm not even sure if I have the latest version...
  17. Oh yeah, the helicopters are pretty nice, although they take quite a bit of skill to fly and if you can't do it well, your team will get really mad at you. I guess the Loach probably takes a bit less skill, it only holds one person (unless you're flying the team commander in the back), and it's primary purpose is to spot North Vietnamese and their tunnel entrances, so you basically fly circles around the map spotting enemies. The Huey is really hard to use, because you've got to be able to get into confined areas to offload your troops behind enemy's lines to cut them off, and if you can'
  18. Has anyone played Rising Storm 2 yet, either in the closed betas or the free weekend that just ended? @legoclone09 and I played during the weekend, and I was able to take part in the last closed beta, and I had a blast. It has player-controlled helicopters, a level of realism trademark to the Red Orchestra series... In my opinion it's a damned good game, anyone else have thoughts on it? Hell, has anyone even heard of it?
  19. Well, it probably wasn't necessary for the Exam itself, but I guess my teacher wanted us to have a very in depth and complex knowledge of US History, and I suppose that that's one way to do it... Anyway, we had tests on all those things, and now I know some of the US Presidents better than I know some of my friends. It wasn't so bad though, I won a pair of $50 aviator sunglasses a few months ago for naming all the Presidents. Too bad I wear glasses...
  20. Took AP United States History (affectionately known as APUSH) yesterday, and AP Physics on Tuesday, both very difficult classes. APUSH was so demanding, I had to memorize all 45 US Presidents and maybe thirty Supreme Court cases, as well as every Constitutional Amendment and all 50 states and their capitals. AP Language is on Wednesday, but after the last two tests, I'm sure it will be a breeze.
  21. This is what people seem to know me by. I'm also fond of this one, however.
  22. Would the bigger ISRU refine it faster? If it's too big to fit on the oil rig, you could always build a boat or helicopter/plane to carry the ore back to land and refine it there.
