  1. Recently, I have not seen a hint of any Realism Overhaul rockets. Searched around the forums, found nothing but planes. So you know what? Screw this, let's make a repository right now! Post your rockets and spaceplanes (notice the relationship to space here. No atmospheric craft, we have FAR threads for that) here, see how far you've gotten in RO. Posting career-mode "stories" is also allowed. I'll post my craft here as soon as I'll get access to KSP.
  2. Manned Mars mission poll

    I don't know what to say about this. Like every person, I am also mesmerized by what some of you call the "instant gratification", absolutely stoked to have a whole new event happen with man in space. Not that I think that's a good way to think about this (it's actually a horrible way to think about Mars colonization and its purposes), but I just wanted to throw that out there. Other than that, here's what I have to say on the more serious reasons that I would want man to settle on Mars. a) Death is, quite literally, the end of all things from the perspective of the one who dies. And to have this end, this total stagnation, come to the human race because we didn't expand our roots where we could is no way to go. Remember what Stephen Hawking said about this issue? How he estimated that the human race has, what, a thousand or so years to sustain itself on Earth? How about no. I believe we should take the chances we have: we can spread through the solar system, not only giving us more scientific knowledge but also having more habitable space for us, a race-wide insurance. And when the CO2 levels reach their threshold, when the last barrel of oil is siphoned from the ground, there won't be a crushing, worldwide calamity. Mars is the first step to this, a mission to perfect our abilities to transport humans through space and do more useful tasks with said humans than just doing a lab experiment in LEO. We will add thousands of years to our existence.

  4. Incredibly Stupid/Pointless Superpowers

    The power that, whenever you blink, a 1cm3 volume of air located at 34.701342"N, 170.920260"E heats up by 1 degree celsius.
  5. Weird terrain error on Google Earth

    What are you talking about? I drive there all the time, and I see no difference!
  6. So that happened...

    As it turned out, the charger cable for my laptop was viciously eaten by my rolling chair while I wasn't looking. As in: it became entangled under the chair. So I rolled back in order to reach a certain object, and the computer was pulled off my table. Long story short, it's now completely dysfunctional. Since I can't buy myself a computer, chances are that I won't be playing KSP or anything else for the next few years. Therefore, I may cease to find a use in this forum. This is just a heads up. You guys were a great community.
  7. I've recently started creating civil aircraft: kind of like a fleet of airliners. Are there any cockpits and part mods that can fit this?
  8. Any civil aircraft mods around?

    I can't possibly believe that, 1.0.5 was a long time ago.
  9. Any civil aircraft mods around?

    Yep. This mod is for 1.0.5. KSP is currently in version 1.3
  10. "Oh hey, why is this thread pinned? Looks cool, let me click on the link an- LUCY IN THE SKYYYY WITH DIAMONDS!!!"
  11. If your space program was a song, what would it be?

    That will of course be Frantic Disembowelment, by CannibalCorpse. Not that I have any affiliation of that band, nor do I like their music.
  12. Quotes megathread

    Why the hell are we arguing against ourselves?
  17. The whole solar system! [drawings] [You can participate]

    I didn't mean that they are dumb. They're stylised, which is also good.

    Totally. Didn't mean to be rude, sorry.

    Quick! Like @_Augustus_!
  22. Fun fact: the tittle is actually the name for the point at the top of the lowercase "i". NOT TO BE CONFUSED WITH "TITLE".
