  1. Congratulations on completing the Jool 5 on the 1st level! I never would have thought that a mission like this would be possible (especially with a rapier) which just shows how bad I am at using that engine! In all seriousness, your cargo "door" design is rather intriguing, as it looks like the air intake is offset, and therefor the fariring's front isn't causing drag? Also, I must congratulate your engineering for being able to produce a rapier Tylo lander, and then incorporating that into a cargo SSTO design. I'll add this unique submission to the leaderboard now!
  2. Hello @cqIpb! Congrats on completing your Jool mission! I'm happy that this thread inspired you. Back when I was new to KSP, the Jool 5 thread of the time inspired me as well, so it's nice to see the trend continuing. If you have any more screenshots from this mission, we'd be happy to see them. Since it sounds like the lander was to unstable on Laythe and you had to skip it (apart from the station you took there for the contract), I want to add this mission to the leaderboard under the honorable mentions section. I also want to congratulate you on being one of our first Xbox submissions!
  3. Congratulations @king of nowhere on completing the Jool 5 Challenge! Given that you collected science, I think this should qualify as a Jeb's Level submission. Otherwise, I have to say that this may be my favorite Jool 5 submission I have ever reviewed. The sheer amount of work that went into this is staggering. Slowly watching the mothership grow as you kept adding such tiny modules to it was suspense building, and I found your method of getting around the launch pad launch mass limits to be really clever. Again, considering you were literally building your rockets on the pad and launching them, and did SO MANY LAUNCHES to throw this thing together, I can't say this is any less than that this Jool 5 probably has more work put into it than any other Jool 5. Congratulations! I'll add your mission to the leaderboard now
  4. @king of nowhere just want to update you that I am in the process of reviewing your submission. Have gotten through main ship completion and will view the rest shortly but just wanted to let you know where I'm at. @MoeKitsune Unfortunately that would qualify under the last line in the prohibited mods segment, however I would gladly put you in the gatecrashers section if you submit a JNSQ mission.
  5. Congratulations @OJT on completing the Jool 5 on the 1st level! As for ditched fairings being reusable or not, I'm not fully certain myself. I have come up with concepts to use robotic parts to clip the payload through the fairing and release it and just using my imagination to pretend there was a cargo door, but I don't know. I'll put fully reusable* and then explain the fairing part. Other than that, it is an impressive follow up and simplification of your previous mission, and I'm glad you were able to work around the dozens of refueling flights from the lander. I'll add you to the leaderboard now.
  6. Congratulations @OJT for completing the Jool 5 Challenge on Jeb's Level. I just want to say that your submission has to be one of the best from a visual perspective. I kept finding myself staring at your screenshots, they truly are beautiful. Additionally, I liked your mothership design. Simply yet effective. I also admire your patience for the refilling missions on Pol. A possible idea for a future mission: a docking port or claw that could allow the lander to go in front might allow the overpowered lander to directly land with the entire mothership sitting on top. I tried landing a really tall 3.75 meter rocket on Pol once and it didn't want to stay standing so maybe not, but I digress. Your thread did a good job detailing the entire mission from the relay probes to the final Kerbin descent. Adding you to the leaderboards now.
  7. Congratulations @king of nowhere on completing the Jool 5 challenge on the first level! The multitude of extra constraints made this mission one of the more unusual ones, but that also makes it far more impressive. I found your mission thread very entertaining to read. I also found your solution to swap docking ports for claws to be interesting and funny to look at (looking at you, claw gripping cupola). In addition, the fact you were able to visit Duna, Ike, Eeloo, Dres, and Eve in addition is wild. That was almost a grand tour! While you said yourself it originally wasn't done as a Jool 5 submission, it will gladly be accepted as one. Congratulations again! I'll add you to the leaderboards now.
  8. Yes. Please do post, I'd like to see such a mission! Will review this weekend or early next week. I have a bunch of stuff IRL I have to get done by the first so life's a little busy atm.
  9. Yes! I am surprised that they haven't added something to switch a fuel tank from LFO to exclusively LF. Mk3 big tanks work fine, but attaching them can be a little awkward looking.
