    That entry looks harsh AF too. Don’t normally see all that heating. shame about the downlink
  2. SpaceX Discussion Thread

    That looks like a different strongback... FH...?
  3. SpaceX Discussion Thread

    Sorry I means dragon and dragon 2 if FH is so difficult, why do they persist with it? Expesially since they have their BFR in the making
  4. SpaceX Discussion Thread

    So what happens to the dragon capsules and the certification F9/FH has/should achieve? Perhaos i I was hopeful FH would be a success where they think it won’t be but it seems really stupid to put all your eggs in 1 basket. Hes got got people lining up to get a satalite or something on top of a F9, I don’t think people will be so keen on a new rocket just because of its size.
  5. SpaceX Discussion Thread

    Wait wait wait... did I just read that the F9 & FH will have production stopped for this thing? is that because they expect them all that have been built already to be reusable? Or he’s NFI about such menial things anymore? Landing a F9 booster is majestic, I can only imagine how glorious FH will be so if they’ve been canned I’ll be disappointed
  6. Well that ruins my beautifully designed rovers and non returnable landers then ha! Thanks for the reply, I may take that part of it out of the game if it doesn’t mess the whole thing up. I still consider the goo and the bay something that you would be able to download data from and return it home even though I see the merits of it being a must return.
  7. Hey, great mod, love the way it works. makes KSP make a bit more sense in career mode. can anyone help me with regards to the mystery goo & material bay please? i may have missed it and i just realised I cant collect the science as usual, so how am i supposed to get the full amount of science? do I have to return it in the canisters?

    Separation shots on point! Nice to to see the full first stage cycle!

    Definitely won’t build a space plane. musk has made his opinion on wings in space and their uselessness previously
  10. SpaceX Discussion Thread

    Can anyone confirm that was the Falcon heavy strong back that was used!?
  11. SpaceX Discussion Thread

    That first stage turn and boost away was an awesome shot from the second stage

    Kinda ruins the look though i understand paint costs d/v
  13. Experience overhaul

    Again I think the boost to mining should only be given if you’ve spent enough time around the planet/moon you wish to mine. wheels... can only repair them if you’ve visited the planet/moon previously etc.
  14. Experience overhaul

    Anyone else not think this would be a good mod? or is there one similar currently I could play with?
  15. Don't know if this mod already exists, I haven't come across it in my many many forays through the forum but if it doesn't I suppose this is a request to have it created if it's possible. so basically I think the experience a kerbal gains in the game is a bit crap, 1 star for orbit, a star for planting flags, makes it a pain in the ring making sure all kerbals plant a flag on a moon landing or something and it just doesn't feel realistic. so my suggestion is based on a little bit of realism. In life the more you do something the more experience you get at doing it and thus become better at that thing. E.g if your poor at playing football, the more you play the better you get, in your job the more you play with excel the better you get etc. so would it be possible to increase the experience stars based on time in space? So so to get the first star you need to get a year in kerbin orbit (makes space stations have a little purpose) to get the second star, spend half a year in orbit of a moon or land and spend a quarter of a year on a moon (bases make sense) to get the third star, spend half a year in orbit of or land on Duna or dres to get the fourth star, spend a year within jools sphere of influence land on eve and return to obtain the 5th star i realise this may be difficult, but something along those lines seem a bit more realistic to me than being able to get up to 3 stars for just getting to orbit, plant a flag on the moons and escape kerbin soi. a time based system makes more sense to me, thoughts?
