  1. I am really enjoying playing in a scaled up Kerbin system (loving the challenge of 6.4x with stock balanced parts!), but does anyone have any tips to firm up the ground so that my kerbs aren't sinking into or floating above surfaces?

    [1.3] - Modular Kolonization System (MKS)

    @Kozzy there is a mod called "adjustable mod panel" which might help clean up your screen, but resisting cheating is entirely up to you!

    What was the first thing you did when you bought KSP?

    I would pay a lot of money to see my first craft files again (for nostalgia reasons), and then pay a whole bunch more money to hide those craft forever (for noobish-shame reasons!) I do recall playing the free demo-game though, and furiously scribbling altitude results on a notepad after each launch as I attempted to "science the potatoes" out of this game and improve my rockets!

    [1.6.1] Restock - Revamping KSP's art (March 15, bugfixes)

    I think I may have found a small bug! The thrust of the LV909 Terrier engine is slightly offset from centre (all variants). This can be demonstrated in the VAB by placing the engine and rotating it along the long axis to see the thrust indicator wobble about. Reproducible with restock 0.1.2, module manager 4.0.2, and KSP 1.6.1

    rage,rage,rage into mods

    hi @ActicFoxy and welcome to the forums! CKAN is a tool that is very useful for streamlining the modding process, it's kinda like mechjeb in real life, but for mods (not rated for flying spacecraft!) Grab a copy of it here and then place the .exe file in your kerbal directory on your PC (looks like "...\steam\steamapps\common\Kerbal Space Program") and then let CKAN take care of everything automatically! Once you get the hang of how mods work from watching where CKAN installs them (hint: it's the GameData folder!), then switch to manual installs, and then custom modding
  6. When adjusting slider values in the VAB or SPH (e.g. thrust limiter, gimbal limit, etc..) it is infuriating to not be able "slide" to the precise value I want. It would be extremely pleasing to be able to manually input these values with the keyboard after, say, shift-clicking or crtl-clicking the slider bar. (ps. if there is a mod for this functionality please direct me to it!)

    rhino engines, what are they good for?

    After being dried and ground to a fine consistency, the Rhino engine bell can be used as an aphrodisiac to boost struggling rockets...

    [WIP] Restock: KSP Part Art Revamp (Released March 06)

    to answer your question: oh, and welcome to the forums @Sanny!
  9. I'm not very excited for this launch pad... it looks very similar to other launch sites, plus starting on the mun just feels like cheating to me. Will this rob people of the satisfaction of safely making it to the mun by their own efforts? However, I would be excited to see a 10hr video of Jeb tumbling helplessly across the Munar surface! (ahh! glorious memories of tumbling...)

    my understanding of this saying goes: "you can't polish a turd, but you can roll it in glitter!"

    [WIP] Restock: KSP Part Art Revamp (Released March 06)

    From this day forth, in each new game, my first unmanned orbiter shall be called "Maximum Sputnik" The revamps look amazing, keep up the good work!

    [WIP] Restock: KSP Part Art Revamp (Released March 06)

    Excited to see over 15,000 views on this thread, and growing daily! That represents a HUGE number of people eagerly, yet patiently, checking in for news about this mod which is sure to become the new gold-standard for part packs

    Life supports

    That's one heck of a biased poll! But in answer: yes, always I play career games with USI life support (I like the habitation timer & simplified "supplies" resource) unless I'm doing a forum challenge
