  1. Granted, you didnt see the giant leak because you are blind. I wish that headache was gone.
  2. head traumata that lost perception of their surroundings.
  3. My presence is to be expected for the entirety of this day.
  4. here I am @GRS I call for @linuxgurugamer !
  5. granted, but you can never stop talking and annoy all your friends. Everyone hates you and you die alone. I wish for a quick and painless death.
  6. Quite a challenge you got yourself there. Feel free to submit your mission to the retro solar rescue- thread. I would be happy to reactivate it.
  7. Mark Thrimm made a video a while ago. It fits perfectly for this challenge: https://youtu.be/mo4q7RGUCu4 I‘m just gonna leave this here.
  8. @vyznev nicely done! actually landing on a drone ship is a nice touch, haven't managed to do that myself (also I didn't try very hard). of course you can make a badge if you like. this is what they tried to do on the Falcon heavy core Stage landing. AFAIK this was the only attempt so far on a landing where 3 engines stay lit until touchdown. Usually, they do what eagle92lightning said: but they actually use all 3 engines on the landing burn, it's just that the 2 outer engines cut off prematurely so final touchdown can be done more precisely on just the center engine.
  9. Granted, I hope the heat death of the universe won’t be too boring. I wish for unlimited power.
  10. Granted, you have full and complete understanding of military vehicle painting and understand the difference between camouflage, war paint and know in what circumstances it makes sense or not. I wish to see people’s signatures without them distracting from the actual page.
  11. Granted. He’s a cool guy, so cool in fact that no radiation reaches earth and everyone freezes to death within days. I wish life would be easier.
  12. lol, looking forward to see it. I'm sorry for taking so much time with the video on my entry. I want to make it pretty, so far I only have 30 min of raw footage with live commentary. maybe I'll just upload that
  13. granted, but you are being threatened by militant tuba players now. I wish I had more time.
  14. Hmm, I would say no, go ahead, but I strongly recommend using liquid engines as they can be used also for orbital maneuvers as well as for propulsive landing.
  15. Granted, a bus hits your bike and drags you along for several kilometers. I whish for a nice coffee. And a bagel
  16. Will the stats of the DLC engines be rebalanced?
  17. @l0kki I like miniturization and it's a darn fine little rocket you got there but you can't put crew on it ... or can you? I will definitely try in my livestream. If it's too small for crew or any reusability, it's more like an Electron rocket, still a nifty little thing. I"m especially curious about the capabilities of the heavy variant. As for my own rocket, I have an L and an M variant (i'm starting to like the M one better) and I'm currently editing a video about it. It's my first ever youtube video and I want it do be good with "back to old me" parts and such.
  18. I've seen a lot of Falcon 9 builds but most of them use the 3.75m diameter and Vector engines. I think that's OP for a Falcon 9 as the actual real-life rocket has a diameter of only 3.7m. Also while the Merlin engine has a pretty high TWR, it's actually neither very powerful nor very efficient. so I want you guys to think small, build it in the 2.5 m diameter or smaller. Also, the engines used on the first and second stage should be roughly the same thrust. Merlin-Vac can be a little more powerful and more efficient but it shouldn't be too much difference so I decided to give you a list of possible combinations. All landings have to be demonstrated once, just make sure to lock the fuel you need for boost back and landing. Size: diameter, 1st stage engines, 2nd stage engine XS: 1.25m, Twitch/Spark, Spark S: 1.25m, Cub, Terrier M: 1.875m, Thud, Cheetah L: 2.5m, Swivel/Reliant, Skiff or Poodle Things to do: +10P Build a scaled down Dragon 2 Spacecraft that is able to land on parachutes. it has to be the same diameter as your rocket. +5P your dragon capsule has powerful superdraco engines and can use them for a launch Abort. +5P your dragon spacecraft has a trunk to carry some unpressurized cargo (any cargo will do). also it has solar panels, either the foldable ones of dragon one or the wraparound panels on the dragon 2 trunk. it also acts as an aerodynamic stabilizer for an abort. you can eject the cargo in this case. +2P a launch abort can throw the capsule far enough for it to parachute land in the ocean. +3P the spacecraft has RCS thrusters and is able to dock to a station. now for the rocket: +50P Build a Falcon 9. It needs to have 9 1st- and 1 2nd stage engines. first and 2nd stage need to be the same diameter, you can use nosecone parts as radial engine mounts on the first stage (a 3x3 engine pattern is allowed as well as the modern circular arrangement). Angling the engines slightly to make them fit is fine as well. Part clipping is allowed as long as it looks nice (try not to clip engine bells into each other) +20P the 1st stage is recoverable. A splashdown is sufficient, as long as nothing breaks off during tip-over. +13P It lands on engine power, no parachutes. +10P it is able to ddo a boostback and land on or around KSC ground (the entire flat area surrounding the KSC is fine). Now, If you do a landing at sea, you are allowed to tip over and break something. let's just imagine you had placed a drone-ship exactly where you came down and landed on your legs. +5P you do the landing burn with only 3 engines. +2P the upper stage has its own probe core and antenna in order to deorbit itself after payload separation. not done yet, we need to go heavy. +2P Build a Falcon Heavy. the boosters need to be identical to the core stage except for some sepratrons and struts. +10P don't use fuel crossfeed. you may throttle back the core engines or shut up to 6 of them off in order to save fuel. don't forget to throttle back up/ toggle the engines back on at booster sep. +10P the boosters are recoverable (boostback and landing near KSC is required now). The core can land at sea. +3P the core stage is able to land on the next continent. Please keep it stock (+ Making History) and share your craftfiles. I'd really like to make a livestream of some sort and look at all of them personally. Coming next: missions for our Falcons. I'm planning to make a TESS mission as well as a Mun landing using Falcon heavy's and perhaps a LKO station. Please share videos or pictures with your mission report, but make sure to put all but one picture in spoiler. or share an imgur link, as there's nothing worse than huge post with unbelievably many pictures who are all getting loaded. keep it simple. Have Fun!
  19. Fly through the hoop: First attach a launch clamp to a structural tube. Now build a plane and fly through it twice (once in each direction) without breaking it or your plane. Smallest tube diameter wins! Rules: - you have to fly, no driving through the thing. - mods allowed if they don‘t add any completely new propulsion / levitation method. - you have to complete the two flythroughs in a single try, consecutively. Both flythroughs have to be done with the same vehicle. You may land inbetween, everything is fine as long as you don‘t break anything of your craft or the ring. - your plane does not need to be manned, but it‘s much more fun that way!
