  1. Back to Bases

    My tip is to always test-assemble any bases on the space centre lawn before launch, then assemble at site secure in the knowledge that everything will fit... (usually!) There are heaps of ways to deliver your base to site, the following video (not mine) is probably the greatest KSP build I've ever seen!
  2. Do You BELIEVE there is life outside Earth?

    There are at least 6 people (that we know of) living outside of the earth right now, so i say yes Also I'm confident that with enough time humans will spread life all over the place, either biological or mechanical
  3. KSP Weekly: The Martian Race

    @Swacer squad has nothing left to repay its customers, for me (at least) i've received far more than i ever payed for! appreciation that game devs CAN make accurate simulators fun, and can continue to grow a project they obviously love (without resorting to milking it for every cent like some other companies..) an unexpected lesson in orbital mechanics an introduction to, and deeper understanding of, aerodynamics (still cant decide if newton beats bernoulli for lift though..) a keen interest in the history of space flight (from horseback to the moon in only a lifetime?! wow!) rekindled passion for physics and the sciences of space hope for the greater future for mankind (thanks Elon!) Even if the hamburger that squad serves up is a little messy from time to time, it still tastes great
  4. What did you do in KSP today?

    started a new modded career game, and rediscovered the joys of early tech flights!
  5. The Number Game Continued

    9 (-)
  6. KSP Making History

    Can't wait to be able to support Squad by purchasing the upcoming DLC Compared to the vast sums spent over the years on other games (via subscriptions, premium accounts, monocles, and fancy hats), KSP is by far the best value game I've ever played, costing overall only a fraction of a cent per hour to play!
  7. note to self - be sure to make backup of game before march 2nd!
  8. Constant Career Restart Syndrome

    I find myself constantly restarting careers, mostly for the following reasons: extra design challenge imposed by having restrictions for mass, parts count, and availability of parts. role-playing the development of rocket technology (once I get too far up the tech tree things can feel a little easy!) second install to attempt a challenge, which leads too... spent too long away from career game, forgot what i was doing.. start over! (also happens when real life keeps me away from gaming) one time, after (stupidly) killing a whole bunch of kermen I felt so bad that I started over, rather than have to inform the families... mod it 'till it breaks... then start over! (lol also installing a clean copy of ksp feels great, like smelling freshly opened stationary!) squad drops a new version, breaking everything... (see point 6) One day I'll get around to sticking-with and "completing" a career that does it all and goes everywhere, but I may be waiting until retirement to get enough free time! Actually i think i might start a fresh game right now to do this!!
  9. I only just noticed...

    henceforth the Specific Impulse of any liquid waste ejection system should be written as Ispee a separate annotation may be needed for "number 2 stage jettison"
  10. I only just noticed...

    Also forward effects! It's interesting to try to think about how the liquid in a partially filled tank might be directed to a pump suction port while in micro gravity, without using ullage motors or otherwise changing course. Perhaps the craft could spin the fuel to the outer edge of the tank, or maybe some cleverly shaped channels and baffles could use surface tension to draw the liquid to where it's needed. I wonder how (or if) it's done in real life?
  11. KSP's Vending Machine

    *bzzzrrt* *gggggaaaa* the mouse pad jams in the coin slot, and you receive a warning to use legitimate currency only (or fish of a prehistoric nature!!) hopefully inserts a gogonasus....
  12. Ban the user above you!

    banned for overly complicated explanation
  13. it's so great to see the community pulling together to keep a beloved mod alive! @EmbersArc is there any chance of you working your magic on Ven's SpaceX style legs which appeared briefly in version 1.9.2?
  14. Recommended animes?

    check out sites like animelab (if you are in Australia, not sure for other countries) as they have many new and classic amine to stream for free @MaxxQ hit the nail on the head with his list (studiously avoiding "neon genesis evangelion" until you are too far hooked to turn back) my recommendation is "Kill la Kill"; it is fast paced, stupidly funny, and flips many anime tropes on their head.. and then punches them for good measure!
  15. Deploy Antenna When Safe

    if only there was some kind of basic flight computer which could have simple commands preset to activate after a delay even without a command signal... if only... *coughs* *looks in the direction of RemoteTech*
