  1. I dont disagree with either of those statements, but for myself personally I play almost exclusively sandbox (never really fell in love with career). So for my purposes I dont really care to do resupply missions and its more of an annoyance if I have to remember to bring some random consumable for my rover as a "backup" instead of bringing along just an extra kerbal. Sure leave the mechanic in, but I'd personally try to turn it off asap. These feel a bit like loaded questions but whatever. I dont disagree extensive repairs should cost something and that this mechanic of consumable
  2. Meh not so much a fan of having to carry repair kits to fix stuff. I mean inventory system and stuff sure cool. Also fixing solar panels super cool. But having to have consumables to repair Is a little less so IMO.
  3. while in principle I dont disagree, with the KSP aero model being the way it is I dont mind being somewhat more lenient with defining helicopter as "thing that uses rotors for lift" since you know, proper swashplates and cyclic control are hard.
  4. Huh this'll be interesting to follow. Although done with ye olde turbo prop tech, I have managed to do 40 minutes of sustained ~70 m/s flight (which itself was a challenge). Doing the math thats about 200 km That was also using afterburning panthers for speed, (at some points) though and also using (mostly aesthetic?) stubby wings so how useful of a comparison it is is questionable.. If you do use more efficient tech, it might not be totally insane..... I think water hugging or not depends on the inter-fuel drop range of your craft. Let's first see though if it is possible.
  5. hmmmm those tiny rcs place anywhere ports if they still would have a spherical collider might be very useful in stock joints..... (not that you really arguably need those cause of BG but hey its nice to have the option).
  6. yaaay i finished with exams now to repeat this in one month.
  7. Well there's efficient and effective. The most efficient is a suicide burn where you basically after deorbiting freefall and wait till the last possible second to burn at full power retrograde. Efficient, but hard to perfectly pull off. If you fail you end up smacking into the ground. Easier is to first just cancel most of your horizontal velocity then do a vertical burn. Still better to wait till almost too late for those for more efficiency. I hope that made sense. And yeah echoing DeadJohn, you can probably just land the entire base in one piece.
  8. 3am exam time.... again. yaaay me. at least 1/3 exams done (not necessarily well but thats over)
  9. Should be negative. Invalid therefore. Last valid is AlamoVampire at -70 Now at -71 (-1)
  10. dude I've gotten it like 3 times in one day here. Mildly concerning buuuuuut its fine.....
  11. oh boy is it ever super fun to run on 3 hours of sleep cause you have an exam thats at 4:30 am where you are because your uni is across the ocean and 6 hours ahead of where you live at least theres caffeine to keep you going
  12. Umm possibly dumb question - would it not be possible to make/get an adapter between the 5 and 6 mm shafts to make finding a temporary (or temporaryish depending on how things go...) motor easier?
