  1. Can you go with last 14 days, instead of last 7 days? Want to check what you have added or updated, as KerbalX don't notify which one you had updated
  2. While there's the good old orange tank, about what mass do you think is the best choice to use for a payload test of a "realism based" rocket? I want to test if a particular stage I am designing is good enough.
  3. Question: How would you do a surface based rover scan on kerbin? Plane, VTOL, rover, or flying car?
  4. I am away from my home, so I cannot upload the craft. Anyway, I am making a XS-1 clone, so it have wings, with 1 orange tank, 1 rockomax 32 at bottom of the orange and a rockomax 16 above the orange. Attached to the side is the payload. Between the 32 and the orange is a SAS wheel. Entire thing is propelled by a RS25 and 2 aerospike. What I found is that, if I have the SAS on, the entire thing is hard to control, while with the wheel off it's smooth flying. Why is it harder to fly with the wheel?
  5. In addition, the concept is pretty much similar to subassembly, except subassembly will also reside in a seperate folder.
  6. Okay, I will bite -- still trying to figure out how to taxi without getting myself airborne, and able to taxi anywhere (on Kerbin), Is some landing wheels better than others?
  7. But the problem is, unless you have rover wheels, you don't get the surface maneuverability or small area navigation you need for career surface surveys... And you can't really fly Mach 3 with a rover wheel sticking out. Trust me, if I can think of how to make a plane that have the function of batwing, I would have done that.
  8. For my career, when doing missions that involve surface scan in some distant corner of Kerbin, my method of delivery is to use the "ICBM" (aka a rocket that goes past an atmosphere, with its payload re-enter in a capsule). In this case, it was the otherside of Kerbin, and use a polar orbit. However, I am wondering would it be faster to deliver the rover by the way of a Mach3 (or even mach 5) jet, and then drop it off like a bomb?
  9. Yea, I am playing that in career mode, and I guess the contract broke... I will just restart it.
  10. I guess I should just restart the career. Just in case.
  11. So that means it's harder than before? Or is there a mod that reenable it?
  12. I am not sure what happened, but somehow, I am lacking a "test" button in career mode, for the Flea engine and Mk16 parachute. Is that normal?
  13. Question: Does Solid rocket boosters (of all size, including the Sepraton and LES) count as an engine or not?
  14. So... where is the craft?
  15. Is there any parts new in 1.2.9? (If not, i will just change the line in craft file to fool KSP 1.2.2)
