  1. The Tournament will delayed indefinitely. Updates will come in the following few weeks. Thank you for your consideration.
  2. Thought it would bring more eyes to the tournament and bring in people who would otherwise ignore it. It wasn't a typo, simply an overestimation. It was based on having two of Script's Jormungand class carrier. In hindsight, considering the part limit, I think 800k is far more reasonable. I am not going to limit the number of deployable craft, just to see how people form their fleets. If one team runs out of ammunition, it will be considered a draw. From their, moderation will look over the reasoning and take action from their. This tournament is going to be rather slow, depending on how many people join. Most fights will occur over the weekend, so it should be fine!
  3. The Space Warfare Tournament 2019 Greetings Kerbonauts! I am here to introduce the Space Warfare Tournament 2019! A competitive ranked battle where players duke it out in space with stock fleets of their own design! Many of you have undoubtedly come across series such as the Spirit of Kerbin and Kethane Station; this tournament is design to recapture those epic space battles they featured, while giving a competitive edge. The tournament will start next month, just in time for the anniversary of the Battle of Midway (June 4th)! Pre-Game Each player will be given a tonnage allowance of 1,600,000 tons, that they can build their fleet within. A player will then need to send a listing, compiling the names, weights, and files of each of their ships. This fleet cannot be changed during the tournament at any point (unless stated by a moderator). Once the submission process is complete, the players will be paired up with one another, and then matches will commence. Three battles will make up each match, the winner of the majority of battles will win the match and be paired again. Once all players have played, the top two will have an extended 5 battle match. The winner of the Final will then receive the prize and the title of “Space Warfare Tournament 2019 Champion”. Prize The prize will be any combination of any software on Steam for $60 USD. This will not include sales tax. As long as the total list of items the champion wants is equal to $60 USD total value, they will be rewarded that prize. Turn Phases & Rules Below will be the current ruleset. The tournament is to be 100% stock (KSP DLC will not be allowed, this is to ensure perfect compatibility) and will be run on 1.7.0. The Spheres of Influence (SOI) players will battle in are chosen by moderators before each battle. The team with the last functional ship wins Each player takes turns to engage one target with one ship. Ships engage in order of tonnage, lightest to heaviest. The cycle repeats once all ships have moved. If a ship fails to sustain power, move, or fire weapons, it is considered “lost” Weapons can only be fired from the original ship. A common persist file must be updated and a list of screenshots or statements must be provided at the end of each turn describing each players actions. Players are not allowed to take control enemy craft when they are active. Players are not allowed to edit configs or save files unless corroborated by a moderator. Cheats are not allowed. All ships can be moved, but only one may attack per turn. Ramming(the act of hitting another ship with your own) is disallowed Weapons must be fired within a 2.5km distance of an enemy ship. Autopilot (KOS, Mechjeb, etc.) is disallowed If a player loses half their fleet, they may forfeit. If a moderator deems the forfeit premature, they will be told to continue the battle. Carrier rulings: The total mass of carriers must include the fighters and other items they are carrying Ships onboard carriers can not fire weapons. Carriers cannot have weapons larger than 1.5m diameter Fighters must return to the carrier after 2 turns. Ship Design rules and exploits: Ships cannot exceed 600 parts Carriers and fighters are considered separate entities while building Fairing ships (warships made entirely out of fairings) are not allowed Kraken Drives are not allowed Extensive Clipping is not allowed (this is up to the discretion of the moderation) (If any exploits are found during the tournament, they will be added to this list) Good luck! If you have any questions, feel free to direct message me on Reddit or here. There will also be a discord server setup for the tournament which will be added to the Resources section. If you would like to volunteer to do moderation, that would be greatly appreciated, just leave a comment or direct message me.

  5. Hey, a bit of newb when it comes to the space part of Kerbal Space program. Here's a ship I built. I'd say rate my ship! MSV-4
  6. Will y'all be adding new landing gear, as anything larger than the smallest retractable gear will protrude like a sore thumb?
  7. Just made a Discord for this discussion @HatBat https://discord.gg/RJ6dYWC
  8. Neuro-Kom Industries..., That sound good to you
  9. I have a highspeed, low orbit, skimmer, does anyone want one? Also, would anyone want to work with me to create a company?
  10. Was just wondering, does anyone need a skipper aircraft? High speed, short range, rocket/glider craft. something along the lines of Dyna-soar?
  11. @MiffedStarfish @Sidestrafe2462 I originally wanted to name the ship after the founder of HKA, but there is no such Kerman.
  12. It's just a place to discuss about submissions. I'll put up a comprehensive sheet of what ships I need.
  13. @MiffedStarfish Your ships do have a lot to do with Laythe and I would be fully willing to put them in the series
