The title is intended to be voiced in the Jerry Seinfeld belly button voice....Hel--Looooo! Either way, I wanted to introduce myself. My name's Tim, I'm 28 and addicted to KSP. It kept popping up on Steam and stuck out. After reading the reviews I bought it, loved it, have spent hours a day on it after work for a couple weeks now. Originally I wouldn't get far into the careers I'd start because I'd find another mod I wanted to try and would begin a new career each time but now I'm settled on my combo and am trotting along. I have a question though and hoping someone could help me - Are there rival agencies in KSP? After a few weeks (or days I don't know when they appear) I start to notice different colored orbits when I'm in map mode. They're not any of my ships and always have the name of some in-game company. So basically other companies are in space as well....The one that pushed me over the line and caused me to register to ask this question just popped up and is orbiting very close to the sun....It belongs to Zaltonic Electronics. Is this a feature of the base game (competition)? I have several mods installed so it could be that. I'm just curious. Suddenly I feel like I lost because travelling so close to the sun is way beyond anything I'd be doing right now. Either way, I'm glad to be registered here because of how into this game I am. I look forward to chatting with you guys. Timmy T.
