    What did you do in KSP today?

    I successfully rescued a Kerbal and his shipwreck off of Minmus's surface. It took about 20 minutes of fiddling with RCS to get the klaw to actually grab the wreck.

    I added the 6th segment to my Spindle Station, making it over 130 meters long, I think. I actually hit the kraken limit this time because I was using the wrong autostructing. So I had to go through the station switching the whole thing to grandparent autostructing, and it held together.

    Grandparenting did the trick.

    Oh. Okay. *takes a long hard look at own life*. What about rigid connection? Does it cause any problems?

    I've been trying to get this base, and a few minor variants of it, to work. But every time I put in zero g, it summons the kraken and explodes. I'm actually planning to land something like this on top of the dead kraken on Bop. The problem seems to be that the lower ring is too far from the core and somehow ends up swinging. Or the problem might be with 8 sided symmetry since I've never really gotten that to work in space stations. Has anyone ever gotten a base like this to work? Craft file? In this current incarnation the vertical arches are actually built off of 4 crew cabins down, which have been offset from the core. And as with all of my rings and arches, the ring segments are held together by concealed pairs of docking ports.

    Your PROUDEST moment in KSP

    I have a small single launch space station attached to a D-class asteroid. Why is this a great achievement? Because the asteroid has a period of roughly 80 years, and it was already about twice as far out as Eeloo when the station rendezvoused with it. When it launched the largest engine in game was the Mammoth and I had not yet discovered the trick of clustering the smaller area Vector engines. It was the largest, heaviest, most expensive, and most powerful rocket I'd built up to that point; and was the first rocket I ever built with more thrust at liftoff than the Sea Dragon (350 meganewtons).

    Dead Kraken Size

    Wow, that is larger than anything I've ever built. Very funny. Go back to your grave! I do actually have a lander stationed at my Bop orbital station. Might as well take a look.
  8. Are versions of Bon Voyage and World Stabilizer updated for KSP 1.6 in the works? The 1.5.whatever versions still work on load, but when I last tried to use BV my rover ended up so banged up it couldn't sit still.
  9. Does the Scatterer addon have an adverse effect on the performance of KSP when it is running on a Mac? Does it slow the game down?

    How do I lift a shipwreck off a planet?

    It's a lunar lander command module without any fuel (If I've interpreted the size and mass characteristics listed in the contract correctly), massing 1.6 tons I think. I'm away from my computer atm so I can't check the contract.
  11. I have never successfully recovered a shipwreck from a planetary surface, and just accepted a contract to do so on Moho. I think the best way to do it to land right on top of it with a klaw on the bottom of the rocket, Mechjeb will make that easy enough. Anyone have good craft designs?

    Dead Kraken Size

    How big is the dead kraken on Bop? I feel like building a base around it. Roughly what diameter should my base have at the bottom.

    This. I think I'm going to send it to Dres and stick it on an asteroid.
  14. Never heard of such a publication. I am a real aerospace engineer, though.
  15. Toxic exhaust is another reason why tripropellant rockets would be in the game. As far as the real world, the environment is already f*cked beyond all hope, so we might as well use them.
