    Do you play KSP only or are you into lots of games?

    I'm a bit rusty, but I am a huge fan of RTS games, especially Starcraft and League of Legends. Before shifting my much of my attention to KSP I played League, and then Starcraft 2 competitively, having some minor success at the tournament scene before getting burned out. I also play and teach chess, feel free to hit me up sometime if you want to play! I also still occasionally play starcraft 2 if thats your style.
  2. No plans at the moment. Its an idea, but there is a long backlog of missions I want to do and not enough time in a day =(

    SSTO Eve no docking or refueling

    One more crack in the wall... https://youtu.be/zFEgKixiTHY
  4. By the way, the Jool 5 mission I was almost done with and hinted at awhile back has been indefinitely postponed because I brought an old, unfinished version of one of the landers, so I need to refly the whole thing. Very frustrating due to the huge number of gravity assists... The sad thing is the working lander is actually a few kilograms lighter, so the whole thing should have worked.

    [1.5.*] RCS Build Aid Continued - New Dependencies

    Just to throw in my two cents, this is an incredible mod. I've been using this for years now, and consider it to be on a very short list of absolutely essential mods for my KSP experience. I can't over-emphasize how thankful I am for everyone involved in writing and updating this. <3

    VAB Horizontal Landing Challenge

    Certainly not the way to do this with the largest craft possible, but I did have fun getting this to work with a plane that wasn't optimized for low speed flight or landing. https://youtu.be/Hzm6-u0YnKU?t=631

    Ion engines boost

    Agreed, a larger scale ion engine with the same stats relative to size and mass would be very helpful. This would have the same performance as a cluster of the current ion engines, but would be far kinder on our PCs as a result of lower part count/engine count.

    Ion Plane Development Challenge

    I'd love to have another go at this sometime. It'll have to wait until late December though

    Solid Rocket SSTO spaceplane runway challenge

    I did an SRB SSTO spaceplane some time ago, it was a fun challenge! https://youtu.be/OleAhs0ChoY

    Build a Submarine That Can Get To Orbit

    You don't have to dump ore, just open the utility bay door to ascend, close to descend. Should still work later!

    Build a Submarine That Can Get To Orbit

    A little bit hacky, but the easiest way to ballast a craft is to clip a bunch of radial ore tanks into a utility bay and close the door. Just open the door to ascend to the surface =)z https://youtu.be/Tk73lZTwR6c?t=382
  12. Just throwing this out there, my most viewed video ever is a mission to Dres. Dres is already the coolest planet in KSP.

    SSTO Tylo No Refueling Or Docking

    The wolfhound resulted in a ton of gained dV. I suspect it is possible without the wolfhound, but it would require one to land and takeoff from Tylo at even higher speed, and possibly further optimize the Kerbin ascent as well. One could throw in an additional Mun assist to save some ion fuel, but that is extremely minimal savings. That being said, all of these things are doable. The landing gear on this thing could probably take as much as 120 m/s on a different landing zone that was less rugged. I would say that this is most likely possible, but it would require landing at absurd speeds.

    Mastodon Engines on Eve

    I'm not at my desktop atm, but let me note that I've tried a lot of different engine configurations on Eve, and have yet to match the performance of the Vector for the lower stage. Part of the reason is the vector is extremely compact, with minimal body drag.
