  1. So, the challenge is to make the worst possible design?
  2. I don't think any company would like to make a loss. Unless, it's an emergency or humanitary help
  3. Making a loss seems against the spirit of the challenge. @Pds314 are you sure that the ROI can be negative?
  4. Oh, I only noticed in the title that you want a kerbal ring
  5. Ok, but if you want a thick ring in stable orbit, the fastest way would be to litter the place with debris (assuming there's no debris cap).
  6. The missions were added to the game in version 1.10 along with the ESA parts, I believe. Now they don't even show up in the menu (I don't own any Dlc's). Were they limited edition missions?
  7. I don't think ore concentration is a thing in asteroids (i.e you get the same ore rate regardless of the asteroid). I'm playing modded with mostly quality of life mods that don't change much of the game play. The only mods that I think could change the ore distribution are maybe Community Resource Pack and Ground Construction(?)
  8. I have an uncrewed miner with 6 drill juniors that is mining an asteroid at the supposed rate of 0.06 units of ore/s (which would mean that my ship would be gaining 0.6Kg/s while the asteroid loses that amount) but the asteroid is losing a bit more than 1Kg/s. At this point I thought that the junior drills would be very inefficient but no, something even weirder is happening: the total mass is increasing. To sum up, the drills are extracting at lower than expected rate of ore and therefore my ship is gaining less than expected rate of ore, the asteroid is losing ore at a higher than expected rate, but the total mass of ship + asteroid is increasing (there's no conservation of mass)

  10. I think debris don't get deleted unless you terminate them or they get under 25km of Kerbin's atmosphere
  11. There's a game called Space Engine that has the ability to create and edit planets, so yep it's possible
  12. I agree. The feature would have to be easy to master and stock-alike to please the majority of us
  13. Seriously? This post isn't an original idea? Can you link the original post?
  14. With the new 1.11 update adding orbital construction, I think the next logical step should be orbital production such that ship-building becomes possible in-situ instead of needing to import parts/launch assembled ships from Kerbin. The new 'part fabricator/ship assembler' could use ore or other raw resources inspired by the community resource pack mod.
