    Weather Chat Megathread

    Here in Idaho, we got 13-15 inches of snow all at once last year, in January. We had 5 snow days in a row, a record for the district. This year, however, is vastly different. We've probably had barely 6-8 inches total this winter, and it's melting at a pretty good rate. No snow days this year, it'd seem...

    So what song is stuck in your head today?

  6. Yes! Somebody gets it! I finished that series barely 15 minutes before posting this, i just had the screenshots ready.
  7. Well, that's about 58 MPH, so I can see how it'd be heavy damage. Anyway, here we see the DMR (Dreemurr Royal Navy) Harekaze slamming into the DMR Akeno at 26 m/s about 4 km from KSC Island due to a major navigational error by the captain of the Harekaze. (If anybody knows the anime that the ship names are a reference to, 10 points.) https://imgur.com/a/TmRxx because album embedding seems to be broken again. You have no idea how laggy the collision and resulting explosions were... but it was worth it. All but 8 (out of 32) crew members on both ships were killed. Thankfully I saved about ten minutes before the collision. Yes, this was staged. I was just having some fun.

    Your Favorite Anime

    Ok, I'm sorry to be posting in a dead thread, but I hope to revive it... I just thought I'd chime in. Currently my favorite anime is "High School Fleet", also known as Haifuri. I've got 3 more episodes of HSF to watch before I start on "A Place Beyond The Universe" and then on to "Girls und Panzer" and then that one with the girls training to become astronauts, I forget the name.

    Stuff you'd say to 5 year younger you.

    Note to myself in early 2013: BECOME A RAILFAN TWO YEARS BEFORE YOU OTHERWISE WOULD HAVE! CATCH THE SD90S BEFORE THEY'RE GONE! Even though I didn't have a real HD camera until December 2013...
  11. Aurora: Into The Ocean This story is based on the game Subnautica. I found a craft file on KerbalX for the Aurora from said game, so I decided to make my own version of the start of the game. Also, yes, the captain's name is Chara, because that's just what I named this specific kerbal in this save. ------- "This is the Aurora to KSC. We're approaching Kerbin's atmosphere. Estimated time to landing, 5 minutes." Chara turns and looks at her navigation panel. We're going way too fast for Kerbin re-entry... "Everyone, this is your captain speaking! We're coming in towards Kerbin too fast - an estimated 3600 meters per second according to my speedometer! I'm going to eject myself out the back of the ship with my escape pod! Hold on tight!" She quickly gets out of her cupola module inside the ship and runs down the corridor to her personal escape pod. It was not much - merely a small lander pod attached to an RCS tank with some thrusters. It only worked in zero G, but it'd have to do. And the ship wasn't in the atmosphere yet - once it was, Chara could no longer use the escape pod. "Undocking in 3. 2. 1." The pod undocks from the port inside the ship. Chara skillfully maneuvers the pod out of one of the holes in the back using the RCS thrusters. She keeps herself within viewing distance of the Aurora in order to maintain radio contact, but stays far enough away to be safe. "This is captain Dreemurr of the Aurora. We're coming in too hot. I have ejected myself from the ship in my escape pod. This will be a wild ride. Please, get a rescue team out there as soon as possible," Chara shouts over the mic before all radio contact fizzles out, as the ships begin to enter the atmosphere. The Aurora... it's out of control! It's spinning wildly! Being more aerodynamic, the pod descends quickly through the atmosphere. As soon as the parachutes deploy, Chara looks up at the Aurora. But, she no longer sees one piece. Instead... It's... it's coming apart... I mean, I'm glad I got out of there, but.... I can't believe this is happening- REI, WHY DIDN'T YOU INSTALL ADEQUATE DECELERATION THRUSTERS?! As the escape pod approaches within 500 meters of the ocean, Chara braces for impact as the parachutes fully deploy. Meanwhile... The Aurora successfully splashes down without being fully destroyed, the only damage being what it had sustained during the descent, except some loose parts snapped off. *Four Hours Later* Chara wakes up to find her pod floating in the ocean. Well, I'll be. I... actually survived! GPS pings show the Aurora - or what's left - to be roughly fourteen kilometers away. At least the rescue crews will have an easy job... END ----------- Hey everyone. Sorry, my writing is terrible, I'm better at doing roleplays on Amino than I am at writing stories. The other day, I found that Aurora craft file on KerbalX, and chose to have fun recreating the Aurora's crash at the start of Subnautica. Many screenshots were taken, but these were just my favorites. I wrote the story around the screenshots. Again, I know the writing is terrible. But, it's 9 PM on a school night, and I just can't think right now. After all, the most important part of this is the screenshots! Oh yeah, the craft file can be found here: https://kerbalx.com/Lockatello/Aurora-Beta The escape pod and corridors (the metal plating seen in some shots) were my personal modifications.
