    Mr.
  1. What? Hi. I have no idea what this tread is about but, yes, I did. Doing it Constellation Style The chutes disappear as soon as the booster touches the water then the stack fall sideways hard enough to break the Darn thing. ME
  2. WRESAT and Sparta

    Found this: https://www.honeysucklecreek.net/supply/WRESAT/WRESAT_Images/WRESAT_booklet_Nov_1967.pdf ME
  3. What did you do in KSP today?

    Hey all. Today Jeb was playing putting the new HAL POD MMU through it's paces. Then Bill's tether broke. No worry Jeb as got things covered. ME
  4. What did you do in KSP today?

    Hey Kerbomite manoeuvres. Didn't do much lately but Jeb test flew variations of a new EMU MMU. Says it's pretty slick. ME
  5. What did you do in KSP today?

    Clipping does that. ME
  6. Hey all Kerbalites. Here is my entry: Imgur: http://imgur.com/a/VtyXu A basic jet. The wings and jet fuel are positioned high to raise the COG. That is in the hope of lessening the angle on the rocket motor. The atmospheric engine is more forgiving as the aircraft uses control surfaces. The prototype did ¾ of an orbit before burning retrograde. Lining up with the KSC. Jeb re-lighted the engines as he was a bit short. He landed about 1 km from the runway but never tapped the brakes and coasted all the way to the hangar. ME
  7. What did you do in KSP today?

    Reminds me of something....Only smaller. ME
  8. What did you do in KSP today?

    Jets have been experimented on since the 30s. So a lot of variations have been cooped up. Maybe the KAI t-50 Golden Eagle? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/KAI_T-50_Golden_Eagle ME
  9. There probably is a limit. One that was ignored by some quirk of spaghetti coding. As for why do we see it I will guess that having something to look at is easier for the developers. And that it doesn't matter as you wouldn't normally see it (most players seem to have not seen them before). I have not seen them but I suspect there is one in every planet and moon as well. ME
  10. Hey all. I have a theory. For in-game calculations and things. All asteroid have a cube in the middle. Here you can see Valentina having a regolith bath after docking with one. Jeb told her that if you put your head inside and asteroid close your eyes, twist your tongue and make a wish while holding your breath then your wish will come true. In this case she whished to see the cubic core diamond inside. When you encounter one (An asteroid) and you move the camera around sometime it (The camera) will clip through the crust and you can see it. In this case the game somehow made generated one (An asteroid not the cube) small enough to be smaller than it's core. ME
  11. Actualy that is only for Linux. http://wiki.kerbalspaceprogram.com/wiki/Key_bindings#Modifier_key Because of keyboard mapping being different on different OS there are variations. ME
  12. Is there a way to edit the tutorial text?

    Not sure I understand your project but you can have flags elsewhere . Put a flag in a stable orbit around any body ME
  13. What did you do in KSP today?

    All the time. .. .. I just want to change the angle a bit. T'snot like I want to look at the back or underneath or something. .. .. Just turn it a bit.... .. .. .. While were on the subject. Does anyone it "M" to see where the ship is? ME
  14. What did you do in KSP today?

    ET TU KSP? ME
  15. What did you do in KSP today?

    Hey all Kerbalizers. Today I returned to one of my least favourite things. Shuttles, STS, Orbiter. Take your pick. All the same. So because I dislike them I decided to build small. And woudjoonowit? It's my best one yet. It took me 3 de-orbiting try to get it on the KSC. And 4 shot at the runway. But There it is. A bit squirely on the flare. The cargo bay Should be bigger but there isn’t anything closable that I could use.... It came back with 700 m per seconds in the tank so it could take more payload, go higher, whatever. Now I am tempted to put air-breathing engines on it.... Nah. Probably ruin a good fluke. But it does make me wonder if perhaps I learned something and should do the Shuttle Challenge again. ME
