  1. I was looking through the 1.12 launch announcement and I noticed the part about mobile launch pads but I haven't seen anything about them before. Could anyone explain to a poor kerb who's been living under a rock what they are?
  2. @paul_c Well, I was thinking of getting a GT 710 just to have a video output. My parents aren't that fussed about "ultra" HD resolutions 720 to 1080 is fine with them. And thanks for the heads up on the Gigabyte B450M DS3H; you just saved me having to search for spec on that one.
  3. @paul_c You make a good point, from what I can see all available indicators show that they have the 3300x's bundles actually in stock in stock. The company I'm looking to buy from is ccl computers in the UK more specifically their ebay store and yes I have checked its really theirs by contacting the company about it through their website. All indicators seem to show them to be a reliable business and going through ebay and paypal offers another layer of security. The only reason I can see that they haven't been snapped up is that their pre-assembled though that seems pretty flimsy to me. If apart from the built-in Wi-fi and 2x M2 NVMe slots there's no functional difference in what motherboard I think I might get the ASUS TUF B450-PLUS . Thanks for your input
  4. Hello everyone I'm looking to help my parents update a desktop computer they use as a general use and entertainment machine (web browsing, video streaming, playing DVDs ect). I'd prefer to do an AMD based self build and I've found what seems to be a good deal on several Ryzen 3 3300x + motherboard bundles in the UK from the same seller. I'm particularly interested in their b450 and x470 bundles and have made a short list based on whats in my budget range, but I'm not sure which motherboard option would give the best value for the money so I hope someone here can help me pick one out or at least some pointers on what to look for. In particular I'm looking for a board that would support further upgrades and expansion in the future. The motherboards are the following. Gigabyte B450 Gaming X Motherboard Gigabyte B450 AORUS ELITE Motherboard MSI B450-A PRO MAX Motherboard MSI B450M MORTAR MAX Motherboard Gigabyte B450 AORUS M Motherboard Gigabyte B450M GAMING Motherboard Gigabyte B450M DS3H Motherboard MSI X470 GAMING PLUS MAX Motherboard ASUS TUF B450-PLUS GAMING ATX Many thanks for any help you can offer.
  5. @Nate Simpson Little teasers like this have me I'm really looking the release thought all the talk about ore, resources ect and their transport has got me thinking about rovers / ground support vehicles and their role in KSP2. I don't want to poke you or the other devs to say anymore than your willing to so I'll ask just once on this topic, do rovers or ground vehicles have a role in the support and development of the colonies and will we see an expanded parts list for them? MANY, MANY thanks for your efforts in bringing this new kerbal experience to life .
  6. Superfluous J, What your describing is what I was expecting and why I was hoping we would be able to build from the external command seat, it feels bad to trot out the old line but maybe there'll be a mod for it that expands on what the stock system can do.
  7. @dok_377 @Neilski Thank you for your replies. I was hoping the answer would have been yes to the first two questions, I think it would have simplified things for building in orbit. Neilski, thanks for the suggestion, but I was hoping to try to join ships directly together without using the docking ports.
  8. Hi everyone. I have a few questions about the new EVA construction system that I don't think I've seen mentioned elsewhere of the forum that I hope someone can answer for me. 1) Can Kerbals use the new system while in an external command seat? I have an idea of either making something like NASA's MMU with built in inventory storage or something like the space shuttle robotic arm attached to a space station for orbital construction without the Kerbals floating off. 2) Can the system be used to join two or more separate craft together? I have another idea about building a refueling depot from the fuel tanks of a large rocket, and if craft can be joined together it would simplify things. 3) Is it possible to use the new system to set action groups outside of the VAP or spaceplane hanger? I don't think I need to elaborate on the possibilities this would allow.
  9. [snip] On a more on topic note I'm glad to see some of the work their doing on the UX/UI, It's not something I think about very often though it has such a big impact on us as players.
  10. Hi everyone. I've noticed that the forum seems to have changed since I last logged in and I can't say I like the new design, does anyone fell the same or do you like the new look?
  11. The only mod I can find that's still updated is realchute
  12. Thanks both of you, that's cleared everything up for me.
  13. Hello everyone I used K.Yeon's OPT mod a bit when it first came out but dropped it due to getting overloaded from to many mods, I've been trying to get back into it but I can't get my head around what's going on with it. Could anyone explain the situation?
  14. You're right, it's been a long day and I didn't catch the spelling difference. And to further avoid derailing the thread a quick search shows that deprecate/deprecated/deprecation are indeed terms used to indicate an older item or part that has been replaced by something newer.
  15. Deprecated and deprecation are also terms used in accounting to describe the reduction in value of items over time, for example if a van was bought for 10,000 new and was worth 5,000 5 years later it would be deprecated by 1,000 per year. Source: trained as an accounts clerk.
