    Kerbal Community Chronicles- The "Open Source" Mission Report! [Chapter 1: To The Mun!]

    Well, a cool logo was promised, so a cool logo you shall recieve! I guess it also works as a patch-y thing for contributors.I made it myself, so I hope it isn't too terrible. Assuming that the next StarMods is next Monday, if you want to write chapter 3, say something! As for @Gyrfalcon5, don't feel pressured or anything. If it's not done by whenever the next StarMods is released, we'll wait. Real life comes first. Besides, there wouldn't be many people waiting, we don't have many followers .

    Ok, thanks! Can't wait to see the final product!

    It honestly took me a minute to figure out what was going on here (the fact that I forgot that line was in the story didn't help)... Anyway, thanks for your support! Chapter 2 looks like it will be written by @Gyrfalcon5, but I haven't heard anything from him saying he can do it...

    Ok, I know this was a day late, but this week's mod is Advanced fly-by-wire! @Gyrfalcon5, you're the only one who expressed interest, so it looks like you'll have to fly a plane somewhere... if you don't have a controller just use a keyboard and have Jeb comment on the handling or something. Remember to use the save file! P.S. just remember you can make it a sandbox if you want

    No, second-to-last reused block 4. EDIT: or third-to-last, if B1042 is usable.

    Thank you very much! I hope to see many different writing styles as well. To "sign up" just say you're interested- I'll put your name in the OP and choose between whoever else is interested by Monday. Still not sure if that's the best way (author of last chapter chooses author of next chapter), would a poll work better?
  7. Okay, so what is this? Good Question! There's a couple of interesting twists to this one. First: A new chapter will be released for every StarMods showcase. WHEN A MOD IS SHOWCASED, IT WILL BE ADDED TO THE GAME AND ITS DEPENDENCIES. NO OTHER MODS ARE ALLOWED (except Hyperedit, Camera Tools, and other mods used only for plot reasons. THIS DOES NOT INCLUDE VISUAL MODS, AS THEY ARE SOMETIMES SHOWCASED). Each chapter should showcase something from that week's mod. The mods won't be removed afterwards or anything, they'll just keep piling up- I plan to restart this series after each major version (aka KSP 1.5) (If this part sounds familiar, it's because I may have tried this before.) SECOND: I'm not going to be writing all of this. Just the first (and last?) chapter (you'll probably be glad I'm not writing all of this after the first chapter, I'm not great). Every week, people can volunteer to make a chapter using the save file and mod list. The author of the previous chapter can choose from these people who will write the next chapter. They can make it in any format (graphic novel, video, just story w/ pictures, maybe even a MHE mission), add whatever plot twists they like, and interpret whatever happened in previous chapters however they like. The only catch is that they MUST demonstrate the mod in some way, while advancing whatever plot develops. Make sure your chapter doesn't accidentally retcon anything! By the way, no one should go twice in a row, so If you did the last chapter, you can't nominate yourself. SAVE FILE LINK (5/24/2018) Why is it in Science mode? I thought that would help the plot a bit, I guess. If there's a problem with that, it could be easily changed to Sandbox mode.

    The first Electron has arrived at the launch site

    He was talking about the link I put up- Rocket lab still sells at a minimum of >$80k

    The first Electron has arrived at the launch site

    Well, yes... but... I'll just leave this here... http://spaceflight.com/schedule-pricing/ (NVM THE PRICES ARE IN THOUSANDS I CAN'T READ) The market I think they're actually going for here would be smaller dedicated launches that need to launch at a certain time- like individual satellites for constellations (Outerspace apparently has a few of these booked) or some Moon Express-y thing.

    Go to their website, go to "Book a launch," go to "rideshare," then "cubesat"... check out the "% booked" figure. It does seem like they've got plenty of business to support them in the near future!

    I think there's an eighth Iridium launch in August. Doesn't change that much though, and I'd expect it would reuse the Iridium-7 core - reusing cores from previous Iridium missions seems to be a thing they do.
