  1. What did you do in KSP today?

    At long last...
  2. I'm trying to update KSP from version 1.4 to 1.4.2, but I'm having a problem: My question is: where should I install the patch?
  3. How famous are you?

    8/10 I see you in the Challenges section. Ya I'm cool with that. It kinda escaped from me anyways
  4. How famous are you?

    9/10 I see you frequently
  5. I was going by wordcount. 132 in this chapter to 119 in Chapter 3
  6. The part I find funny is that this isn't even the shortest chapter you've written
  7. Rover K-Drive?

    It's not a bug, it's a feature And yeah, this has been in the game for a while now. I remember using this in some of @Triop's old challenges and getting some ridiculous speeds:
  8. I'd be willing to rebuild your plane. Do you know how to insert pictures in posts yet?
  9. Normally you'd have to upload the craft to somewhere so that we can test it, but I don't know if that's an option on consoles... I've got a theory, though: maybe you could back up your KSP data to a USB drive, then upload your data to Dropbox and we could pull the craft file from that? I'm just guessing; I don't know if that would actually work or not...you wanna give it a try?
  10. I'm halfway there... just another ~20 months to go...
  11. Sorry, no. The only mods allowed are AirplanePlus and Tweakscale.
  12. Hey folks, I'm back from my hiatus. And holy cow you guys are amazing! I haven't been on the forums for the better part of a month, and when I got back today, I honestly expected this challenge to be dead. But you guys are not only keeping the challenge alive, but also managed to get this in the Heritage Challenges! That's incredible! You guys are the best. I'm also really pleased to see that we've managed to get other judges on this, because honestly, I was completely overwhelmed and stressed out by the sheer volume of submissions. There was no way that I could've managed to get through them all. So thank you everyone who's judging planes right now, because you are making my life a lot less stressful. @panzerknoef, @NightshineRecorralis, @no_intelligence, @1Revenger1, I'll put you in the OP as official judges. I'll still be judging, too, but I don't know how often I can do it: each review takes me about two hours, and it's hard for me to actually find the time to review planes. Even on a good week, I could only get about 3 planes reviewed before I had to call it quits. I really can't thank you all enough for this. I'll still be around the forums too, so I'll be updating the OP with the new reviews about once a day.
  13. Yep, they're allowed. We've had a few flying wing submissions already, actually. How many passenger planes have you seen that glide? If you mess up while gliding, your plane crashes, because you have no propulsion and can't climb to a safe altitude. No gliding.
  14. Test Pilot Review: @aerodis's [CompanyNameNotFound]: AerLeeker 3.6 Figures as Tested: Price: 51,901,000 Fuel: 900 kallons Cruising speed: 300 m/s Cruising altitude: 6000 m Fuel burn rate: 0.22 l/s Range: 1200 km Review Notes: For an aircraft that relies entirely on Junos, the Aerleeker packs a quite a punch. During our testing, we managed to push the plane up to 300 m/s, which, although less than the promised 450m/s, is still far more than you would expect a Juno to go. It's also very quiet - the smaller engines result in less noise, and the wings are angled upwards, which results in much less noise in the cabins. The wings are actually quite interesting; we think they're the largest wings we've seen compared to the size of the plane, which enables the Aerleeker to take off from shorter runways at lower speeds. The wings also provide the most responsive roll control that we've seen - which takes some getting used to, as we accidentally barrel rolled twice before finding a balance. The price is high, though, at 51,901,000. That, combined with its fuel consumption of 0.22 kal/s and its six high-maintenance engines means that this plane will be expensive to keep in the air. The Verdict: The Aerleeker 3.6 is a typical private jet - very comfortable to fly in, very solidly built, and offers a smooth ride, but also quite pricey. Unfortunately, that doesn't translate to a good regional jet; we don't think that we can afford to put this plane into service.
  15. Yes, It's still open. I'll continue to do this for as long as people submit planes. The reason I haven't tested any planes in over a week is because last week I had midterms, and I thought I should prioritize studying for those over KSP. I'd like to apologize for abandoning this thread without any sort of explanation; that was rather rude of me. Sorry. But now that I have midterms behind me, I can get back to testing your aircraft! I'll have @aerodis's entry up in a few hours. @MiffedStarfish covered it pretty well, actually. Fuel capacity / burn rate gives you your flight time, in seconds. Multiply that by speed to get your range in meters. Divide that by 1000 to get your range in kilometers. Sorry it's taking so long. I've currently got 37 38 submissions to test, and you're currently 12th in line... your entry will take a while.
