  1. Any plans to make recoverable fairings? You could have thrusters, parachute and probe core all in one part
  2. Are you still making the guide? Wondering because I just installed it and was unsure of how to attach a decoupler to the gigan trunk because nothing seemed to be flush
  3. SpaceX Discussion Thread

    Question: if SpaceX wants to really up the launch cadence-around once a day-could it be possible to just not do a static fire?
  4. Say what your thankfull to have in KSP!

    People have been thanking specific mods and the modding community in general, but I'm thankful that we have the opportunity to mod at all. Without the possibility for modding, it would be a very different game.

    Well I'm not sure what this is a picture of, but it says FH on it so its part of the Falcon Heavy, probably the centre core I was about to say that it was an attachment point for the side-boosters, but then it shouldn't be in line with the flag. Now that I've seen it there, you can just about make it out on this picture: ...though without the black/grey square around it. Looking at this picture: can see there are two smaller struts coming off of the attachment struts (I know there is a proper word for 'strut' but I can't remember what it is at the moment). I presume these will push the attachment struts down after the side boosters separate. So the thing above the flag may be for attaching the smaller struts.
  6. What did you do in KSP today?

    I finally launched my reusable Minmus lander which I've been waiting a long time to do (I just added the science module to a station at Minmus on the career save). Using Ven's Stock Revamp with the extra parts it gives you (I think the feet of the landing legs are added parts)
  7. Well, if the BFR does what Elon said it will do when he said it will do it (even if it's delayed), by the time I can afford a NS flight, there may be a ticket price equal to an airline flight for a BFR flight.

    How about this instead?
  9. KSPooky Haiku Challenge

    Soon to aerobrake But, alas, without a shield Just for the science yield
  10. KSP Fan-Art MkII

    A) Yes B) That's amazing, thanks!
  11. What planets have you made it to?

    In sandbox: Landed on Mun, Minmus, Duna with return, and I think I landed on gully once with a rover to see how it was. Orbited Jool, (Tylo, Laythe and Vall too), Eve (of course to get to gilly) I went through a period of atmospheric flight just as was getting good at interplanetary flight. In career: Landed on Mun, Minmus I think I may have orbited Duna in an old save
  12. @DeltaDizzy if you are looking to draw something, maybe try this:
  13. KSP Fan-Art MkII

    Anyone can really, and with works like the above it should be amazing.
  14. What did you do in KSP today?

    I did some career stuff; I jumped from ~50 science to 2,500 science with a simple Minmus mission visiting the Highlands, Midlands and Lowlands. Selling that amount of science could almost pay for the 133,000 funds mission with the 'Research Rights Sell-Out' strategy. I don't play career much and never got far with any of them, so that's probably my biggest gain yet. No pictures unfortunately (it was a standard mission anyway, so wouldn't have been of any interest).
