  1. Ah, but I am a clever one and put emergency intakes in all directions!
  2. I want a limit. It may be a irrational guilt due to cheating or... Yea it's a irrational guilt due to cheating. Also if I shot down a plane and the engines spazzed in midair it won't kind of take away the coolness, ya'know ?
  3. Hi, So I was looking to build some sci-fi ships in the same league as Star Wars ships and I wanted them to have good thrust in atmo and out, but also be stupidly efficient, enough to have something the size of a x wing burn 4 rocket engines and still have fuel to get all the way across the solar system and participate in a sizable dogfight. But I looked at every Sci-fi engine mod I could find and they were all either huge or had some handicap like special fuels or pitiful thrust. Now to my request. I need a suite of engines that burn normal fuel and have thrust on par with stock engines, but have ridiculously low fuel consumption, enough to make every plane a SSTO and have interplanetary capabilitys. I'm fine with you copying stock models but please put them in a new tab if you do. PS. RCS ports too please.
  4. You have taken your first steps into a much larger universe. May your rockets not flip, may you remember to bring ladders, and Godspeed.
  5. Anyone else have the guardians of the galaxy theme playing in their head during that epic station heist?
  6. if hyperedit is allowed, couldn't you just clip thru the planet at a unreasonable speed?
  7. I step away from the forum for a few months and look at what happend. I need to leave more often.
  8. proto stock.craft?dl=0 ok here u go. please find a way to make this thing able to move.
  9. that's a airplane plus cockpit and its the only mod on the vessel. u need me to remove it?
  10. the sub is powered by a nuclear turbine that gives it infinite range. the blades are agustable so you can "switch gears" favoring torque or speed. in the rare event of turbine failure, kraken attack is certain so by popping the double fairing the turbine housing falls away and with it the krakening turbine of death. the crew can then pop the ballast and ascend away from the supersonic projectile reaction wheels and prop blades to the safety of the surface. if anyone thinks they can improve on this design (because this thing is literally the slowest boat EVER) i am eager to see what you have. (seriously, when its surfaced it moves sideways more than forward)
  11. I made a launch vehicle that uses only one engine block (a cluster of atmo and vacuo engines) and has a probe core, RCS and a docking port so i can ditch the first stage fuel tank and re dock the engine block to the second stage fuel tank. this negates the need for a second stage engine which can act as a weak point and lead to flipping or RUD. The engine block is also reusable. it makes reusability a lot more easier because your not recovering the first stage while your second stage still needs to burn.
  12. WE HAVE OFFICIALLY REACHED 2017 VIEWS!!!! thank you guys for all the support. I had no idea I could write something that people would actually like. (I actually checked and it said exactly 2017)
  13. Chapter 17-Do Not Go Quiet Bill fell faster and faster. artillery shells flew past him, some missing him narrowly. As Bill hit the upper atmosphere. he started to tumble violently until he settled in a back first formation. A few small reentry flames licked the edges of his wingsuit but did not do any damage due to a heat shield of nanobots. after the flames died down, there was nothing but quiet wind as Bill and the artillery shells both were reduced to terminal velocity, falling in synchronization. The wind went from a whisper to a roar as they hit the lower atmosphere and started to slow down in earnest, falling slower but still at very lethal speeds. The air pressure returned to normal levels, and Bills suit was able to keep up with the loss of pressure. He opened his eyes to find a 1 ton explosive shell hanging over his face. After getting his bearings, he pushed away from the shell and looked down to find the ground alarmingly close. He threw out his arms and almost pulled up in time. Almost. the spire of a skyscraper shredded the rear flap of his wingsuit and Bill tumbled head over heels. He almost lost consciousness a second time from g-forces and could barely see. he closed his eye and waited for the ground to meet him. But the nanobots did not give up so easily. They made rudimentary rocket nozzles and shoved themselves thru with incredible force. Bill decelerated just in time and hovered above the ground for a few seconds, and fell the last foot. The city fell quiet. The Eeleian navy had been driven off by the combined forced of the United Moons of Jool, and the day had been won.
