  1. https://imgur.com/gallery/GaLKwHY Had a few issues with Eve surface features. Hope this counts.
  2. Most of us have probably seen Starship hop before. This challenge is pretty simple- replicate SN10's flight profile (explosion optional) with a VTVL craft. -Your vehicle should use three engines that can gimbal. The craft should have a TWR of roughly 1 with 1 engine lit. -Fly to 10km, gradually shutting down your engines. Hover at 10km, and then shut off your final engine and flip over, falling on your side. -As late as possible, relight three engines and flip upright. -Shut down two engines and land vertically on landing legs. -Bonus points if it explodes shortly aft
  3. Absolutely! Most challenges don't have prizes- I just do em for fun, as I imagine most people do.
  4. I would but I have both DLC unfortunately. I'd do it for no points, if you're accepting entries more loosely. Unfortunately I think anyone with the ability to take on a grand tour probably has both DLC already.
  5. Believe it or not, metals are malleable- they bend. SN1, made of stainless steel, which is more resistant to force than aluminum, the metal most rockets are made of, imploded, and bent inward instead of shattering. Airframes bend. It's a fact of aerospace. Look out the window the next time you're on a plane- you'll see the wings shaking as soon as you hit turbulence, and maybe before then.
  6. Finished off the Mun missions. Guess it's time to take on Laythe. https://imgur.com/gallery/RE96ilg
  7. I took a break from the Mun missions and went to Eve. Mission report: https://imgur.com/gallery/peQFohI
  8. Congrats on completing Lunex 1, 2, and 3, all first class, @camacju! Go ahead and claim your badges.
  9. I finally finished Mun STS-2-4. Precision landing wasn't that hard, it just took me a while to figure out I needed a robotic arm. Album: https://imgur.com/gallery/Q6eWsUd
  10. https://imgur.com/gallery/SZCSQ7i Landing out of atmosphere with a spaceplane was easier than I thought. Of course, I overengineered my shuttle so I'd have plenty of margin, but hey.
  11. I'd love to see an empty/fill tanks button, preferably with filters for resources (which would be handy on ships which utilize ISRU). This would make the process of designing spaceplanes much easier and more intuitive for new players, since aerodynamic tweaks must be tested both full and empty, which can be a pain.
  12. Inclination refers to the position on the Mun- so a 60 degree inclination would be a bit more than halfway to a polar orbit. I was unclear about my requirements for Duna Lunex 3- in the book The Martian (hence the title of the challenge), Ares has 3 redundant relay dishes, but they all depend on the MAV, which is a major plot point. I would have given it to you if you had the rovers. If you do a first class run, though, you will need to follow the corrected requirements. The Jool and Eeloo challenges should be up soon! Congrats on completing Lunex 1 First Class, @Clamp-o-Tron
