  1. Is there a graph/chart anywhere of the day and time at which launches have taken place during the week? It would be interesting to see if there is any pattern at all.
  2. Just thought some of you might want to know... Stage and a half designs are now possible; here's a bad example:
  3. Some testing reveals that, as far as I can tell, engines can fire through decouplers now (they have an actual hole in the collider rather just a visual one). I decided to make a sort-of Atlas II, and it did work, although the half-stage completely broke apart after staging: As far as I'm aware this was not possible with stock decouplers before 1.4, so I'd be interested to see what kind of rockets you all can create (hopefully without an RUD of the half stage).
  4. Edit: Accidental double post, delete if possible
  5. https://imgur.com/a/hOvSV https://imgur.com/a/p3W45 Not ordered albums, largely taken from different attempts missions. I do love this mod.
  6. Are there supposed to be other buildings as well? At the moment all I have are the landing pads, although there are two files 'combined building3 Emissive' and 'combined building3' which look like they are for a building. It could be that I'm just not noticing any other changes.
  7. Any plans to make recoverable fairings? You could have thrusters, parachute and probe core all in one part
  8. 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
  9. 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?
  10. 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.
  11. 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: ...you 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.
  12. 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)
  13. 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.
  14. Soon to aerobrake But, alas, without a shield Just for the science yield
  15. A) Yes B) That's amazing, thanks!
  16. 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
  17. @DeltaDizzy if you are looking to draw something, maybe try this:
  18. Anyone can really, and with works like the above it should be amazing.
  19. 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).
  20. If Skylon did fly, what would be the cost? I'm guessing there would be a lot of refurbishment costs like with the space shuttle, but I could be wrong, which is why I'm asking. It's all well and good making something reusable, but if it's expensive, then what's the point?
  21. Could someone with more talent than myself recreate this: Except it's a kerbal and it's saying 'I want you to check yo' staging'. Or point me to an existing one.
  22. Just some standard career gameplay. The only interesting thing to happen was this: I guess i just never thought of using struts as landing legs.
