  1. Didn't do much of note today, spent most of the afternoon at the local Blueberry festival! Love my Blueberry shakes... anyway, did some experimenting and poking around and about KSC to pick up this sweet last drops of science credits, crashed a few drones because they're cheap, pilots are not (I MISS YOU VAL!!! ) Got the science I needed to unlock the next set of rocket parts and set my sights for the first Kerbal to orbit Kerbin. I had only one Kerbal on my mind for the job- Valentina Jeb Palan Kerman!! Yes the brand new, never before even flown in a plane, first time in the drivers seat of
  2. This is the high quality content I come to expect from these forums.
  3. ...... I.... have..... SO many questions....
  4. Started a new Science career today, since sandbox mode was providing no rewards for the work. And I decided this would be THE career... The career where mistakes mean death, and failures cannot be erased..... This career would define who I was!! THE PRESSURE IS INTENSE!!! IT'S ALMOST TOO MUCH TO HANDLE!!! YOU CAN CUT THE TENSION WITH A KNIFE!!! .... EHEM.... Valentina died within 10 minutes... Can I go back to reverts now?
  5. I FINALLY DID IT!!!! That is the Hopper, SSTO-4, personnel shuttle. The variant pictured above is a bare bones SSTO for training only. It can reach a 75km orbit with enough fuel to deorbit and about 2 minutes of additional flying time. This is the perfect platform for helping Kerbanauts get that first star. The Bouncer, SSTO-5, is going to be the primary crew shuttle between future planned space stations and KSC. It sports five RAPIER engines and over 10k deltaV (most of which is used getting it into orbit.... I'm still getting the hang of SSTOs, but the first step is getting
  6. Well, it's been a busy week at the Doc's space center.... First, the Twilight 1. When I last mentioned this vessel it was in orbit over the Mun, plotting a landing sight. I am proud to say the crew successfully landed 15 km outside of the NW Crater, near the equatorial plain. After the required photoshop- I mean photo op, Jeb and Bob retreated back to the comforts of the lander while Bill got to work on building the rover... There were setbacks. SEVERAL setbacks... I didn't get screenshots of the ensuing chaos because I was so focused on the problem. The rover and scien
  7. The atmosphere of Kerbin extends out to 70 km (70,000 m). So setting up a satellite in an orbit below 100,000 m, or 100 km, you should have no issues.
  8. The time.... It has come... BEHOLD!!! Explorer 1, "Twilight", sitting on top of the most powerful rocket ever developed by The Docs engineers, the Explorer Launch System! Pretty impressive right? .... No? Ok... Anyway, the lander has space for a rover and geographic survey probe to be packed away inside the service bay, and enough life support to last the three Kerbal crew for a month. After a flawless launch and initial orbital insertion burn, Bill was doing a post launch assessment to ensure the proper amount of snack rations were on board when he discovered there were no too
  9. Testing? What's that? Strap em in, light the fuse, and run like hell!! No but seriously, my play style is less calculated and more "this probably wont RUD on me..." I might test a component a few times to make sure it does what I made it to do, but a lot of stuff I end up figuring out on accident. Or there is an accident.... Most of what comes off my runway and launch pad could theoretically be seen in real life. I try to play with as much realism as I can, though that revert button is getting worn out. It might explain the slow process I have, and it might explain why I've played this game o
  10. Finally got my Airdrop LanderTM (Patent Pending) on solid ground in the mountains to visit the mountain monolith just beyond KSC!! Jeb dropped the lander, then turned to observe the landing process. It stuck right to the ground when it landed! So the flight crew returned home, overshot the runway, got the go-around and retry, came in too hot, bounced a few times off the runway, finally stuck to the ground, then proceeded to skid off the end of the runway and take the Atlas for some unscheduled off-road testing.... All bodies- erm, all Kerbals accounted for and ready for the next mission... An
  11. Today, I lost Enby Kerman to the side of a mountain while trying to plant a flag next to the monolith.... He was airdropped in riding a lander. Gears deployed flawlessly, parachute opened without incident. Everything went perfect..... except Jeb's aim... He was supposed to drop in on a small flat area about 2km from the cliff that had the monolith.... He actually dropped on a shear cliff about 5 km away from the target landing zone.... We're working on Jeb's aim now.... *Ground Control to Major Tom....*
  12. Finally perfected my C-1 Atlas light cargo plane. Also, I designed a lander that is specifically for airdrop missions to inaccessible locations, and ran one test.... .... Close enough... Also, I realized today that I have 13 flights currently in progress, It's day 68, and not one of my Kerbals have reached orbit yet. So, I built a basic launch trainer, and leveled up a handful of Kerbals for the next endeavour, landing on the Mun and Minimus... ... very soon... and @Triop Don't you laugh at it!
  13. Is that what Jeb told the engineering department?
