  1. K, so when can I post my first rocket? And could you give me the link to the video?
  2. IF we restart this from the beginning with the same rules, then will it go faster? We never got past the first generation rockets, so if we just made progression faster, than everybody would be happier, people could advance into rockets with less restrictions, and people just starting can still survive. Wait, are you gonna post videos of the launches for us to watch? It's pretty boring to submit a craft, wait 4 days and get told it worked out well.
  3. So will we be able to put out bigger rockets sooner? It took forever to even get one to rocket in use. That would be much better
  4. lets hope this actually works, this challenge hasn't be available for quite some time now.
  5. mission idea: two stations

    try launching all your space stations in pairs instead of alone. two fully built stations, two modules on one station, or two station cores. Like launching both your eve and your duna stations at once, or launching research stations to both the mun and minmus. Or even just launching the power module and crew module for the same station at once. Or just launching a kerbin station and mun station core to expand on later. Just an idea.

    I have no idea how to make a badge. How about you make a badge for this and put your name on it. win win
  7. [1.2] Real Solar System v12.0 Dec 8

    if only it was an easy stand alone mod.
  8. [1.3] Extraplanetary Launchpads v5.8.2

    now you just need the giant space potato.
  9. okay, but I've been to the new forum, it looks finished, enough to use it at least. So far I've been the only one to ever comment on any of the posts ever.
  10. so when is the plan going into action? I want to send in my craft on the new forum. And can I get a reward for being a very active member on the new forum?
  11. I have a craft and I'm ready to post it, so can I start my own thread to post my craft? it was originally for this thread so it follows all the guidelines in this thread. Though I don't know how the guidelines for the starter craft have changed. P.S. I am the only one to ever respond to a topic on the new forum so far.
  12. that sounds like a doable Idea with stock parts. Does the stock claw allow fuel transfer? if it doesn't then maybe you could just have a docking port low on the craft for the refueler to refuel. I would love to see that. though it might not be considered realistic.
  13. So in the new one. 1: can I upload my previous crafts? 2: are reaction wheels available now?
  14. The Great Panjamdrum

    its suggested, but not a rule.
  15. Hover around the globe

    hover?
  16. Where is YOUR Jebediah Kerman?

    My jeb is currently turning into diamonds as we speak in the core of Jool.
  17. 2 burns, that'all

    this is a simple challenge where your goal is to get to the surface of duna and back in two continuous burns, you can stage, but the throttle slider must stay on until the burn is complete. you can throttle down and adjust your burn a bit, but once you throttle to less then 20% then that burn is complete and hope that it brings you to duna(the less then 20 percent thing is just so that someone can't just set the thrust limiter to 0.5% and get away with all the adjustment in the main burn itself). once you power down to less then 20% and don't turn it completely off then it is then concidered part of the correction burn(s) of course that is extremely difficult, so instead the winner will be the person with the lowest amount of delta v used to adjust combined between both burns. if you don't have a mod that allows you to see delta v then just take the amount of fuel used and divide it by the mass of the vessel after the adjustment burns to get your score (lower is better). just for the sake of easiness in the math rcs is not allowed, just rotate the craft and use the main engine(s). no mechjeb or something of the sort. I tried it but I used at least 400 delta v both ways (and I don't count in the leaderboard). good luck, more questions just ask. current ranking leaders. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10

    I guess so
  19. 2 burns, that'all

    1. I bet a lot of people would see that equation and be turned away from the challenge (people that don't understand that equation can still do the challenge half decently). 2. it may be less accurate but it's just easier to use the fuel used during the correction burns divided by the mass of the vessel after the correction burns. 3. yes I'm going to outlaw mechjeb but in what I have seen from mechjeb it isn't very good at going from ground to duna transfer in one burn. 4. again with the easier way of doing things it's just easier not to use rcs at all. 5. most of that is just so the challenge isn't so math oriented, the idea of the challenge was to see if you could be accurate enough with the controls to in the main burn so that you would use the least amount of delta v in mid course corrections. 6. I know a lot of people like to be very math oriented when it comes to this game but a lot of people don't care for the fine details, they just want to see if they can do it.
  20. 2 burns, that'all

    in my attempt I just waited until the duna transfer window, waited until dusk then burned straight up until I was set to escape kerbin and in a trajectory to intercept duna, then I did some adjustments until the intercept was deep in duna's atmosphere, got there, used areobraking to slow myself enough to land then used parachutes to land. Some complications arose and I couldn't do the second burn (tipped over) but I would've done the same thing but from duna to kerbin. the object of the challenge is to get as close to to duna as possible in 1 burn, then if necessary some mid course corrections, slow down and land on duna using non powered means, repeat for kerbin. the way you win is to use the least amount of delta v in mid course corrections.
