  1. What did you do in KSP today?

    I landed a small base I'm planning to expand on the Mun. I scanned for resource lodes only to find one 1.5 kms away! So of course I sent a rover to check it out. I wanted to bring it to the base, but I had no Klaw... I shoved it back to the base. My Mark Watneyish exploits are just getting started... I have 4 RTG's in that base to play with. Base, with rover.
  2. What did you do in KSP today?

    I went to Sarnus for the first time! This little thing had about 11k d/V on the pad, so it had no problem reaching Sarnus and it's moons. I visited Slate, Tetko and Eeloo. Unfortunately, I got an unwanted gravity assist from the latter (Who knew having my closest approach at six kilometres would cause that?) I ended up being kicked out of the Sarnus system, with a solar orbit that has a periapsis higher than Plock. Whoops. Heading for Tetko. Periapsis barely skimmed the atmoshpere. View of Sarnus after my Eeloo encounter.
  3. OPM or GPP?

    You can have both. In the GPP thread there is a mod that adds the OPM planets orbiting around Grannus.
  4. What did you do in KSP today?

    I totally krakened the entire install after Hyperediting a ship to a very large orbit around the sun. (I think it was over 1E100 m) Now no rockets can be launched and the space center is glitchy in all saves. I had to delete the install... Great job, Realism Cataclysm! You lasted a whole day!
  5. What did you do in KSP today?

    I named a rover the Renard Miraculeux and sent it to Iota. The name is fitting.
  6. What did you do in KSP today?

    I created an abomination plane that deploys a small science rover with parachutes. It carries it vertically, sticking out of the hull. It's a miracle it is not immediately destroyed by drag and such...
  7. What did you do in KSP today?

    What do you do when a contract requires flybys of six different celestial bodies? You buid a 18000 d/V monster of course! Just look at this little abomination. It doesn´t even have a parachute! Of course, boosters that large can only be safely separated by MOAR BOOSTERS! FWOOOOOOOSHHHHHH And then, of course, you spend fifteen minutes fiddling with moons and gravity assists to construct this beautiful thing... And then you complete the contract with over one quarter of your Delta V remaining!
  8. Spaghettifying Kerbals

    I turned off gravity and flew one kerbal into an interstage faring. Next thing I know, she's become a fine dish of spaghetti with assorted rocket parts.
  9. What did you do in KSP today?

    I launched a ship I piloted in a dream...the Apocalypse Later You can probably guess its function from the name, and the rather...large ammount of weapons "I" installed.
  10. Have you ever been to eeloo in career mode

    Well, not Eeloo, but GPP´s Leto counts too, I guess. It was a direct shot with an ion probe. I´m never doing it again after I waited for several hours for the burns to complete!
  11. What did you do in KSP today?

    A refueling vessel failed me, and had to be excecuted via KAS electric screwdriver. Spaghetti Kerman and Danny Kerman (not pictured) carried out the excecution flawlessly.
  12. I got it working and staged some pretty awesome dogfigts...but I can't get two ground based weapons to shoot each other. Any ideas? I have ammo, weapon manager and AI pilot on the things. They do point their weapon at each other if I turn off the AI pilot, but they do not fire. Edit: Solved. It was the guns that were out of swivelling range. Sorry.
  13. What did you do in KSP today?

    I dropped a probe... into Jool.
  14. I´ll see what I can do. I use 1.3, might be the cause.
