  1. Should I start over?

    I'm starting over for 1.3.1 because my last epic game was in 1.2.2 and honestly the newest version runs great for me. 1.2.2 had a massive memory leak for me...could only play a couple hours before it became impossible to play. Yeah when I got 1.3 I knew there was another patch around the corner so I just messed around with it and noticed how much better it runs on my rig. I was going to wait for the DLC, but I think I'm just going to update all my fave mods for 1.3.1 and then joyfully begin another game. Absolutely my favorite game ever...
  2. What did you do in KSP today?

    Haven't played in a while waiting for the 1.31 patch so I just did a quick, one hour, Apollo style mission. Easy-peasy. Glad I haven't lost all my skillz...lol
  3. KSP Challenge Coin

    Yeah an official challenge coin from Squad would be super cool. Been playing since 2014 and I have literally only met one person IRL that plays the game. I think a design contest and voting thing would be appropriate. And I don't mind giving Squad more money because I've got at least 1,000 hours in the game...far exceeding the value of my initial 24 dollar investment. And I already carry around a 1,700 year old Roman coin from the reign of Emperor Diocletian and some Zimbabwe hyper-inflation notes, so adding a super-nerdy KSP coin would make me even more awesome and eclectic! lulz... eta: oh and instead of Latin on the coin, write something cool in Spanish but reversed...like the Chatterer Mod...I think that would be funny...would add another layer of eclecticism and nerdiness....you can never have too much of that.
  4. Am i the only one?

    This is the ONLY game where I don't feel like a big loser role playing. The game is so fun it knocks about 30 years off my age...lol I actually lost 3 Kerbals in a space station where I had inadvertently left the periapse just barely below 70K and when I returned from a long mission to Duna they had all burned-in. I was actually liquided off and sad.
  5. KSP Version in use

    Both. I have my largest, most indepth Science Sandbox game to finish up in 1.2.2 so I will play that for a while yet. 1.3 is smoother for me for sure. The only thing I don't like about 1.3 is the new struts with that nipple thingy on them. I like the plain look of the old ones better and I find it harder to make my own interstage meshes with the new ones: they just don't stay put where I want them to.
  6. What did you do in KSP today?

    Testing new Medium Shuttle...
  7. Do you use command pods monopropellant?

    Yeah I always lock out the monoprop in the command pods and treat them as a reserve in case of emergency. Couple RCS thrusters attached to the pod and you can de-orbit from at least 100k.
  8. What did you do in KSP today?

    Landertron to the rescue! Love that mod! I was in docking mode for some reason so smashing the space bar didn't do much...lulz...luckily Landertron was already activated by the abort sequence. Notice the un-deployed parachutes...
  9. What Type of KSP Player Are You?

    Definitely an Engineer. I spend 90 percent or more of my time perfecting and/or re-imagining all my ships. My Jool expedition is on its 3rd iteration in about 2 months of building.
  10. What did you do in KSP today?

    Supercharged space truck!
  11. Nice mission. I've been playing two years and am finally getting around to it. Been planning it for over two months now: my ships have gone through 3 design iterations but I think I'm ready. Planning my Eve mission was simple by comparison.
  12. What did you do in KSP today?

    My version of a Mohotel... And yes I ripped the basic design from someone...can't remember who but they are a freakin' genius! Look at all those empty beer kans... Jeb likes to drink alone....
  13. Has anyone tried this??

    Build the ships separate then save them as sub-assemblies (there's a green tab in your parts section in the VAB and SPH). Make sure to use the root function to make the root part something that can attach to other stuff: like a decoupler or a docking port. Then just load the rocket and go to the sub-assembly tab and grab your previously made 2 ships and attach how you like. Easy-peasy...done it a few times myself.
  14. What did you do in KSP today?

    Jeb-"Wow! Thank god for the personal parachutes mod. Uh, did they move the rip-cord location?" Me-'uh..yeah about that...' As Jeb realizes I uninstalled some stuff:
