  1. 6 Million Dollar Kerbal

    Jeb Kerman... Astronaut... A Kerbal barely alive... We can rebuild him... We have the technology to build the world's first bionic kerbal. Jeb Kerman will be that Kerbal. Better than he was before; better, stronger faster. @bigcalm beat me to it. Oops.
  2. So.. When can we expect the IVA and EVA for the new pod? Is there another way to get them out other than clicking on their portrait? Thanks. Fire
  3. Holy cow. This is the biggest update since 1.2... (No offense, 1.3) Aw heck yeah. Now I'm excited. Fire
  4. My RO learning experience continues... Current things I've done. Landed a probe on the Moon. (Lost a solar array because I didn't know how to get a signal to Earth and I couldn't extend landing gear.) Brought a Kerbal into LEO and back to the surface. (This was harder than anticipated because some of the heat shields I used didn't protect the spacecraft enough.) Got a Lunar Station Core into orbit around the Moon. (And finally found out how to target the Earth with an antenna.) You can find some pictures here. So I decided to try docking two spacecraft in LEO. This will allow me to continue building my Lunar Station so I can bring Kerbals over there for Lunar Operations. So I've built a Rocket Family for launching medium to large payloads into LEO. I call it "Dume". I launched a nearly 10 ton payload to LEO but unfortunately, the J2 engine just shut off for no reason and I couldn't restart it even with the two extra ignitions it had. The fairing also glitched a little, and I might want to add some smaller SRBs to the 6MUSO configuration. Here are some screenshots from the first flight. I'll try to perfect the Dume Family and give you an update on it next time I post. Fire
  5. So anyone else having a problem where the fairings look black in the low atmosphere? For those wondering, I am playing in 1.2 RO. I believe trying to download RSSVE may have caused this problem. Anyone know how to fix it? Fire
  6. Sorry wrong thread. (Delete this please mods)
  7. A modlist would be great, thanks! And I'll try SSTU. Again, thanks a lot. Fire
  8. What mods are everyone using? Do you guys have any suggestions that WON'T crash my game while it loads? I put the Ares Upper Stage together with a Delta IV with 4 strap-on boosters. Probably needed only two, but it worked out. (Also used Falcon Heavy decouplers which put a spin on the core stage when separating which wasn't that good but I made it to orbit) (This rocket wasn't a good idea overall though. Lack of TWR in many places) Fire
  9. KSP Weekly: Starman to Ceres

    Oh wow. That parachute will make low mass missions way easier... Looking good so far! Fire
  10. How a build a 22,000 m/s dV spaceship?

    Ah yes... Do you have pictures of this? I'd like very much to see it. Fire
  11. SpaceX Discussion Thread

    Yep definitely Jeb... It is just like him to ride a sports car on a rocket to Dun- I mean Mars. Fire
  12. SpaceX Discussion Thread

    Holy cow. I think I have a new favourite launch. Fire
  13. SpaceX Discussion Thread

    If only this was a KSP part mod... Fire
  14. SpaceX Discussion Thread

    Hmm. This isn't easy and SpaceX and BO are the only ones to reuse large portions of their rockets so far. It would take years to develop a rival for the Falcon 9 let alone the BFR. Fire
