    Curious George
  1. What did you do in KSP today?

    Looks like it's 3D Printed
  2. What did you do in KSP today?

    "Sentry Mode Activated"
  3. What did you do in KSP today?

    Normally I tend to make really BIG things in KSP, but every once in a while I get the urge to make something small. And this is one of those times. One of my mods, I'm not sure which, includes an RCS which is fueled only by Air Intake, and Electric Charge. So I decided to make a nearly stock plane using those new RCS as the engines. And this very tiny microplane with an RTS as the primary structural linkage is the result. After installing a radio control module Jeb gave it to Val as an anniversary present in remembrance of her first flight. Kerbal added for scale...
  4. What did you do in KSP today?

    Tested this monsterous rover. This roomy rover, comfortably holds 3 crew and 8 passengers, sports 6 Drill'o'Matics, 2 ISRUs, and 2 new OxyMonoISRU test units (converts excess oxidizer into monopropellant. because I never calculate how much oxidizer I need, and often have a lot left over with no way to dump it). It is capable of up to 45m/s on electric drive only, but has a pair of jet engines to get up those "steep" 20 degree hills surrounding the KSC. It's 8 large deployable solar panels and enormous battery capacity enables this over-sized rover, to keep mining and refining all night long with plenty of juice to spare. Currently all sales are pickup only, a suitable delivery system has yet to be worked out.

    Decided to take another shot at a flying disk. Doesn't pitch very well, and fuel economy is horrible. but it flies pretty stable. Maybe I can tweak it into working better.... Edit: Turns out to not need fuel or chutes to land. just select control from here on one of the docking ports on bottom, and set radial in then walk away for a little while XD
  6. What did you do in KSP today?

    KASA launched the Rok colony ship today, carrying 312 passengers + 10 crew members on a one way trip to Laythe. After achieving Kerbin orbit, the Rok was refuel and is awaiting a compliment of 6 shuttles which will carry the passengers to the surface of Laythe. After the colonization mission, the crew will stay aboard the Rok in Laythe orbit, and the ship will be converted into a space station for interplanetary commerce.

    Genegan and Seanberry Kerman are now stuck in orbit with no fuel after testing the experimental "Bat out'a Hell" space plane. They seem to be enjoying themselves despite the predicament, which is a good thing considering their contract doesn't mention a return trip. This is actually the 2nd time making this particular craft.... KSP crashed after testing it the first time, but before I saved the ship.... The original was much faster, more stable, and fuel efficient even though it uses the exact same parts.... cant figure out whats different....

    Tentacle Monster attacks the KSP!!! News at 11.
  9. What did you do in KSP today?

    Decided to make a biplane. I Don't have any propeller mods so I improvised, heh. Got a perfect 4 point landing. One day maybe I'll successfully aim for the runway
  10. What did you do in KSP today?

    After a while away from KSP I came back to find KSP crashing on startup due to one or more of my mods being incompatible with the latest update. So I started over losing my nearly completed massive coreless stanford torus station... Oh well.... I built a "Long Range" Science vessel with lander, that turned out to not be so long range.... I parked the ship on Minmus for later retrieval... Then, I built a mobile fuel factory/refueling station for Minmus. It's mostly stock parts. The mod parts are an OPT capsule, and MAERDA docking port/dual mode engines. It's capable of VTOL into minmus orbit on the RCS alone to refuel those ships that can't safely land on minmus for refueling. I forgot to add some mono tanks, so it'll just have to manufacture the mono as needed. Still working on picking out my new mods. Wish I could get the panopticon pod for the latest KSP...
  11. What did you do in KSP today?

    With the large scale self assembling coreless stanford torus ending in dismal and physics defying failure. KASA begins construction of of the new station Starcore One using the frozen plains of Minmus as an assembly yard. [Imgur Album]
  12. What did you do in KSP today?

    Attempted to launch my new full sized coreless stanford torus. It wobbled apart on the launchpad in just 3 seconds, and apparently broke the speed of light a great many times over.... Flight Achievements: Total Mission Time: 0Years,0Days,0Hours,0Mins,3Secs, Highest Altitude Achieved: 13,337,003,749m Highest Speed Achieved: 5,535,082,646m/s Highest Speed Over Land: 5,458,351,520m/s Ground Distance Covered: 218,338,004m Most Gee Force Endured: 50355.6G Highest Temperature Reached: 6063179K Thats roughly... 18.5 times the speed of light... WITHOUT any warp speed mods. If only I could exploit that for a novelty thruster...
  13. What did you do in KSP today?

    KASA is wanting to make a Core-less Stanford Torus, Which didn't go so well last time (wibbly wobbly explodey wodey was the technical cause of the failure). So they tested a new construction technique that involves pistons and separators to get everything aligned then decouple and allowed it to self assemble. They successfully tested a small scale station, that can hold upto 48 Kerbals across 12 PXL-9 command pods, and dock 12 ships (even if they forgot to install a docking port... ). The small scale test station is now being repurposed as a "Best Kerbin Space Hotel and Space Casino" Kadvertisement : When you just cant get far enough away from things think Best Kerbin .
  14. What did you do in KSP today?

    I built and tested a 6-kerbal emergency escape vehicle. Capable of safely deorbiting 6 kerbals back to Kerbin. Unfortunately I forgot lights and we passed the terminus into night.... The chute opened just fine, and reduced the vehicles speed below the splatter point. Ran out of fuel trying to putter to land... Hope the recovery crew bring a boat... All 6 test crew got promoted due to their daring dive from space OUTSIDE a module. The crew is happy and healthy. But they were a little concerned when I told then I need to make the escape ship much smaller...
  15. What did you do in KSP today?

    After many many months of no KSP I started a new game and added a few mods. I never have enough fuel once I reach space so I launched a fuel depot into orbit. 37 Orange tanks in one launch, lifted by 259 SRBs. If I had actually remembered to gravity turn my 7.7 million ton candle on the way up, I might not have wasted 2/3rd of my fuel getting an eccentric orbit....Still that's over 46k of fuel that that can refuel more maneuverable craft.... next I'll send up some docking ports on grabbers, cause I forget the docking ports.... Oh and solar panels.... and probably other things I forgot while I was insane with the plan to get as much fuel storage up as possible in one launch...
