    Time for KSP 2.0

    KSP as a lighthearted space game that does do somewhat serious orbital mechanics will always be a niche game, and although it might be not that hot selling as peak moment, I do think that there will always be a demand for it and keeps attracting new players. Of course you have Orbiter as a full on simulator, but that is pretty hard core. KSP keeps getting attention and attraction if you look at replies in lighthearted space related articles, and KSP does get referred to a lot. It got my attention and I am pretty certain that people who are, or get interested in anything space related are kept being drawn to KSP. I do think Take2 did recognize this and are in it for the long term, like they have with the full GTA series. Either by nurturing KSP or like some others have said, taking it to a new engine with a KSP2. If SQUAD would be involved in a KSP2 would be the big question mark, but it could very well be that another developer could get a change at a go for it. If looking long term, I'm certain a KSP2 will sell, and would keep selling. What I do think is a big certainty, is that Take2 is going to do something with the Kerbal intellectual property, I'm not going to give numbers here, but if you look at what Take2 actually paid for the IP, and what they've put on their balance as 'developed games property'*, they just have to, or even need to do something with it besides what we know now as Kerbal Space Program. Like others have said, I can see a long time future in a newly, from the ground built up KSP2 with a new, more future proof updated engine. I'd buy it, wouldn't you? I either think it will happen one day, or we'll see a Kerbal flight simulator, sail/boat/submarine simulator or car simulator. But there is deep pockets and time I guess, KSP does not feel that old yet, and one off its main selling points is that any computer out today, how low-spec it is even without a graphics card, enables you to play KSP. So if one does get interested in to space and orbital mechanics, everybody with a potato can join the club without needing an initial investment in a 'game playing specification' PC or laptop. *numbers are public information, and can be found in Take2's annual financial reports if you do a little search for it. PS: @Take2 and @SQUAD, what is the hold up on Kerbal franchise merchandise? I want pluchies, figurines, posters, car bumper stickers, T-shirts, baby clothes and mugs!

    Unity Analytics and the GDPR

    Look at the first post, @sarbian posted what is sent to Redshell. Take2 or SQUAD determined the dataset of what is collected. The Unique User ID which was used to send off to Redshell is Unity's device ID.
  4. As a temporary workaround you can just change your resolution from 4K to FullHD (1920x1080) when you play KSP, its just a few clicks to do that. (Probably can make a profile for it and use the NVIDIA or ATI icon in the taskbar for it) They have been working on 4K support and eliviated somewhat on it the Weekly; Don't know if they finished work on it for 1.4.4 though.

    I love the credits

    No big secret, If you want to see the full list of the people that are credited for, and have been working on KSP? Just take a look at readme.txt in your KSP install directory
  6. Awesome, another upfront heads up on an upcoming patch release! Thank you! I'm however sincerely hoping that the release of 1.4.4 is also used to stop further controversy overshadowing KSP at the moment, and we'll see both a farewell from RedShell trackware and see the explicit opt-in for Unity Analytics back in the game. If not, I fear the recent outrage will not only continue, but get worse… And that won't do KSP any good...

    KSP Weekly: A Decade of Fermi

    You are right, all we can do is speculate and/or make assumptions. Considering the amount Take2 bought the IP for, they probably will do something with it, but that would be another assumption. Why couldn't future purchases stick a fork in an earlier version? On Steam I can roll back to 1.05 if I wanted to? Is that not possible when you purchase on the official Kerbal Space Program site?

    KSP Weekly: A Decade of Fermi

    None of us know the details in the agreements that Take2 made with SQUAD concerning the end terms of the development contract. Of course there is a factor of uncertainty, but it really doesn't make sense to me for Take2 to create a new label (Private Division) in december 2017 for publishing and encouraging Indie type development and then all of a sudden after that pull the plug on KSP's development by SQUAD, 1.4.x and MH is the first published KSP versions under the flag of Take2. I don't think your concerns are justified, at least not yet. And even when a scenario like that would happen a year, or a year of 2 from now, you can always stick a fork in a bugfree version that suits you best along the way. I'm pretty happy at how KSP is looking right now, and with a few more bugfixes it can only get better. So everything that comes extra in development is just icing on the cake to me, and I do love icing, so I'd like them to keep up their good work.

    KSP Weekly: A Decade of Fermi

    I have a bit mixed feelings about the viable use of both Steam cloud and mission/craft sharing through the Steam workshop. Definately it sounds good, but if I look to myself, I tend to copy KSP out of the Steam directory because I play modded and I don't want Steam to auto-update and wreck my installs. I presume that I'm not the only one copying KSP out of the Steam directory because of this reason. For Vanilla Steam players the options of adding Steam Workshop and cloud saving it should work great, but I'd rather have an impemetation that doesn't involve Steam so you reach a broader playerbase. But I can understand that would not be easily implemented or maintainable . I actually do add the 'out of Steam copied' KSP back into Steam as an 'non-steam' game so I can use Steam's in-house streaming function to stream KSP to my laptop, but to my understanding that sadly wouldn't allow me to use either Steam Cloudsave or the Workshop. TL;DR, I think this implemetation doesn't really work if you like to mod your KSP install, and therefore even a fair share of Steam bought KSP players won't be able to use these functions.

    How to set up three relay sats.

    That makes perfect sense! And it's even easier as long as you can calculate the right starting orbit, way more efficient. The deployment vehicle needs a whole lot lets DV and it saves half of de burntime for relay's as well.

    How to set up three relay sats.

    @GKSPGood on you for finding a good method I figured it out myself as well, only I use a little different method, might interesting as well. It may not be the most efficient, but gets the job done with little effort. It does need KER though. *circularize your deployment vehicle at the desired orbit and watch the orbital period, its handy to take an orbital period you can easily divide by 3. *Calculate 2/3 of that orbital period, and 4/3 of that orbital period. (eg: OP of 6 hours, makes 4 and 8 hours) *Release first relay and burn prograde till you have an orbital period of 8 hours *Turn deployment vehicle retrogade, launch 2nd relay and burn retrograde till you have an orbital period of 4 hours *Launch 3rd relay, move deployment vehicle out of the way and correct speed of the 3rd relay to the orbital period of 6 hours *4 Hours later, circularize the 2nd relay at Ap to the orbital period of 6 hours *Again 4 hours later, circularize the 1st relay at Pe to the orbital period of 6 hours

    What sort of KSP player are you?

    I'm way to rational

    KSP Weekly: Curious about Mars

    I don't think its under a NDA, I think pretty much everybody gets mentioned in the Readme.txt file in the KSP folder.

    Updated Terms Notice & Privacy Policy

    Well, unfortunately, no misunderstanding. Before the GDPR there were already stingent rules about publishing photo's and video's (at least here in the Netherlands), but they were mainly effecting professional photo and video-graphers, but now if you publish on YouTube and the likes as an 'amateur', you are liable, if you keep in the confines of private use, there is no problem. Enforcement is a huge issue though, but if someone would like to take the routes, they now can more easily then previously.
