  1. @Skylon Looks like I'm not the only one planning on using Life Support and Deep Freeze. The race is on!
  2. @Calvingamr I'm not the one going through what you're going through, but I think it would be awesome to see a return swing by kerbin to save the mission. Victory against all odds!
  3. What's the point in the "no external seats" rule, anyways? Seems a bit arbitrary to me. What am I missing here?
  4. The color is more indicative of default/ missing textures than eve textures.
  5. I don't have much time right now, but when I get a chance, he's going!
  6. I expected it to go more in an upward direction. I didn't realize that my staging was messed up.
  7. I just realized how disappointed the MK-II cockpit looks at the end...
  8. Beautiful example of how NOT to fly a shuttle.
  9. Can't figure out how to upload pics. It's a series of four batteries inside of a girder. They aren't clipping themselves, but they are *technically* clipped inside of the girder.
  10. Sorry if this has been asked before; I looked but didn't see any indication that it was. Would this count as clipping of functional parts, since the girder is mostly empty space?
  11. Just the other day, I was doing an early contract to measure the temperatures over Minimus. Everything went well until I went for my reentry. I managed to have *just* enough fuel to set my periapsis at 40k meters before jettisoning my last stage and preparing for reentry. To my surprise, the capsule went around for another lap and, only then did I realize that the separation had boosted the capsule into a higher orbit that didn't intercept the atmosphere. With little time left to play and unwilling to go on a rescue mission, I waited until apoapsis and jettisoned my heat shield prograde of my trajectory. This dropped me enough for a high altitude aerobrake. It was a tense couple of minutes, but thankfully, I managed to come in at a perfect angle without overheating. A few precise drouge chute deployments and aerobraking maneuvers later, I came in for a perfectly safe splashdown barely three kilomiters from KSC.
