  1. It all depends. Obviously the 2950 metric ton Saturn V will not stand on 5 F1 Engines, but model rockets that only weigh a few kg will happily sit on their bells. Gravity as well is a large factor, if you built a strong enough engine bell on a descent stage for a light lunar landing craft, it may well be a suitable alternative to a separate landing gear system.

    From the looks of it, there's been some extensive fixes to some memory issues

    Well, yes. But I meant what company, group manufacturer etc? Do we know of them yet, or are they already known? but then again in probably giving it too much thought

    Fast travel? Accelerates time (equal to time taken to get there) and spawns the Kerbal at the destination.

    Who built the stock craft in KSP lore-wise? The space station core's description mentions that it is in the Kerlington craft catalog, but are there other contractors who built other craft? This space station core, assembled by Kerlington contains parts from various other manufacturers. How does this whole system work? I always thought the manufacturers only existed to supply parts for the space program, who would then do the job of constructing craft. But it seems they also provide their own craft, using parts from companies that they haven't collaborated with (at least not confirmed, unlike C7-Rockomax RAPIER). Who built the Learstar? the Kerbal X? The Bug-E-Buggy?

    I'm all for wacky dances... as long as we can toggle them off.

    I mean even if they were, ground based observers wouldn't really be able to give much warning as it's very hard to spot them and they move so quickly. That's the job of radar, which in the 1940s was still being improved upon.

    Jet engines that can only operate under water. The deeper you go, the higher the thrust.

    I thought this was a thread for the impossible? After all, the Fulton Recovery System does exist

    To be honest, I think the solution to most problems here is just to have more variant textures available for most parts. The 1.25m fuel tanks are probably the best so far. 4 texture choices with each of them not being too far a step in any direction, I'd like to think that all other structural parts and fuel tanks will follow in that regard.

    Interesting stuff! Just a slight nitpick: "Bombers or attackers" would be more suitable here as missiles weren't around. Closest thing was flying bombs like the V1.

    Well, Mk.7 is a major improvement, the old blue nosed nose cone now fits the game's colour scheme, the advanced nose cones have just increased the contrast on the details, the NCS tip now has panels. I agree that some of the decisions are strange, too much detail can be a bad thing, but overall? we now have a far more coherent art style, and the removal of some of the older, more muddy-looking textures. But there is room for improvement, and time before the update arrives for improvements to be made.

    What did you do in KSP today?

    It's quite firm in how it points the craft, unlike modern SAS which thinks that only half gimbal is appropriate for a Learstar spinning out of control.

    I don't think they'd drop it from it's current 412s down to the Poodle level of 350s. I'm guessing around 380-400. Though all of this is still speculation, remember. They might not even touch it's ISP. Edit: worst case scenario, can't you just change the cfg. back to it's current values in the case the update changes it?
