  1. Are there any known glitches that would cause a landed ship to spontaneously tip over and start spinning around madly (destroying both the chute and egine in collision with the Minmus surface) before settling into a 45° tilt from vertical and merrily skittering off across Minmus faster than my kerbal could chase it. I switched to tracking, but my pilot who was EVA at the time shows as the only trackable object on Minmus. I'd gone EVA to plant the flag. The menu let me report and take a sample, but theflag button was gone. Then the shipnado hit. Switching back to Minmus, I was indeed the so
  2. Do you remember an old SF movie that may have been called something like 'Six Million Miles to Earth'? I remember it terrified me as a child (which is the same as saying I LOVED IT!) Stand out bits I remember were 2 alien scouts male and female unnaturally pale wearing all black with black glasses/goggles, the female dying by contracting rabies, the male killing an earthman with a kind of flying remote black rubber hood that closed over his head and smothered him. I've found no references anywhere. I'm sure it's right up there with classics like "The Robot Monster"!
  3. "I'm not stupid, I'm not expendable, and I'm NOT GOING!" -Vila, late (literally) of 'Blake's 7'
  4. I was actually referring to the manatee in the taco sweatshirt, but that was BEFORE I saw Ferbal.... Yes, I'm playing catchup again...don't want people to think I wasn't really back after all...I just fell down the rabbithole that is 'XBox Live'. I've created a KSP Club there (Kerbin Mission Control) under the 'gamertag' RangerLaine, admin 2 others, and participate in the others, including the one CNES which is "en français". It's not as busy as it sounds as there's no widely available multi-player for KSP. Most of my club consists of being interrupted with frantic messages that say
  5. "Well...I have some M80s from the last fireworks party..." "WE'LL TAKE THEM!" I suspect 'This Island Kerbin' is on for movie night. (Popping enough corn to boggle the mind of the late Orville Reddenbacher!)
  6. I wondered why I've been so moved..... The sf books I grew up reading...the ones I liked most were about aliens, (often children as in my favourite. Alexander Key's book "The Forgotten Door") lost on Earth, befriending special humans who are able to look beyond the differences... Later these were supplemented by Zenna Henderson's two books collecting her stories of "The People". Reading about Emiko on Earth takes me back to those.
  7. Return to Index I I'm picturing the much smaller cuter one from 'Finding Dory'...
  8. Hope to be! Not so fun posting with a gaming controller, but there you are...
  9. My laptop's been comatose for MONTHS...but I've got a new Xbox 1 with a KSP port due soon...so as Werner and the boys say, "I will get there...EVENTUALLY!" o/~ "But I think it's gonna be a long, long time..." o/~ (hope not!)
  10. [Maybe the question of "Why do Kerbals wear suits all time time?" will be solved? } What question? What I want to know is why everyone else in the universe DOESN'T wear spacesuits all the time? I mean *I* would. Cause you never know. Am I right?
  11. I've been pondering for months....and all I could come up with was this: "In the crater, the deep dark crater, "The Kraken creeps tonight....(repeat) "Weeeee--ee-ee-ee-ee-we must run away! (repeat)" (Continue as long as your audience will let you get away with) I know, I know....very minimalist lyrics.....
  12. Posted August 21 (edited) · Report post Chapter 62 All Roads Lead to Emiko It was growing late in the day, and after hearing the truth behind the covert Zaltonic Electronic space program, Gene and his companions stood quietly, trying to absorb all they had heard. Many of the pieces were starting to fall into place, but some still doubted what had been said so far, especially Captain Kuzzter. "Surely you can't be suggesting..." but just then he was cut off by his first mate Geo.
  13. Wow...I didn't know there was such great scenery on Kerbin itself! I love the camper! I need to get back into this game and do some Homeworld exploration! I suspected Kerbals could survive reentry, but that was amazing! That was a great two-seater rocket too....I must try some of your 'early days' designs, or at least come up with my own.....I tend to be more of a flyer than a builder.... You could rename this chapter "At the Mountain of Madness" with what went on there....though a return to the site might be a follow-up eventually. Great intros of the Original three, plus G
