  1. What did you do in KSP today?

    I did some fine tuning with the trajectory of the Venus Station, which will arrive in about 54 days. I also took this screenshot with my Galileo Probe which is still orbiting Jupiter: It shows all four galilean moons and all 4 inner planets. Saturn was also visible, but could not fit on the picture anymore
  2. What did you do in KSP today?

    I was playing around with @Thrimm's Interplanetary Transport System in Realism Overhaul Lift-off!! Of course the launch pad broke ^^ 42 Raptor engines, so that means only 6 FPS during ascent Stage separation! There goes the huge first stage. Orbit archived! Maybe I will add the mod to my RP0 playthrough.
  3. [1.3] Launchers Pack - SpaceX Pack V.5 (Released August 25)

    Unzip the file into your Kerbal Space Program/GameData folder. Make sure to do the same with the required mods
  4. What did you do in KSP today?

    I launched a Probe to the Uranus system, which will arrive in 15 years.... .....entered into orbit around Phobos and landed there with a probe which was not supposed to do this..... ...... and I had some fun with rovers.
  5. What did you do in KSP today?

    Today I sent the Venus Station to its destination Ignition ! All 4 RD-0210 engines burned for 6 minutes. Then I finished the burn with the RCS.
  6. What did you do in KSP today?

    And again some tanker missions.... But then finally.... The Venus Station is now fully fueled and ready for departure in T-35 days
  7. Came here for RSS/RO

    Just look at my "what did you do today" forum posts Also, you can always ask me
  8. What did you do in KSP today?

    Today I sent another 4 tankers to the Venus station. There are still at least two tankers required in order to fill the transferstage completely. But it looks like I am on schedule, the Venus window opens in 60 days.
  9. What did you do in KSP today?

    Today I sent two refuel tankers to the Venus station: Random pad explosion Launch and intercept were fine There it is! I still need a lot of tankers Hopefully I will catch the upcoming Venus window....
  10. What did you do in KSP today?

    Today was a great day! I launched the Venus Station into low earth orbit. Launch on a Saturn V MLV. It can carry 200 tons to LEO, the payload weigh 199.4 tons. Look how big it is Liftoff !!! The First stage is powered by 5 x F-1A engines (9100kN each) and 4 additional UA1563 boosters (14000kN each) On the second stage I used 5 x HG-3 engines (1400kN each). At engine cut-off there is only 130m/s deltaV left. Orbit !! Now I have to fill the transferstage, I already built 3 tankers, but I guess I will need more.
  11. What did you do in KSP today?

    Mercury Explorer 01 flew by Mercury for the first time. Also, the Jupiter Return Project entered Jupiters SOI, took pictures and will return now.
  12. Hi, so I just switched to the RC-4 version, and everything works. But I still have a question. I dont like the new Jupiter cloud textures. Can I switch back to the old version by deleting or replacing any files? old: new:
  13. Who else is playing RP0?

    So I was interested in who else plays Realistic Progression Zero? 1. What are your goals? What do you want to do? 2. What have you done so far? 3. Do you have any special mods? (like colonization mods or interstellar stuff) 4. Did you catch the 1969 moon landing? Concerning me, my goals are to send crewed missions to Venus, Mars and later Jupiter. I also want to land on many moons. I am using mostly part mods, but I installed the Uranus moons from RSS Expanded. No, i did not catch it. I decided to go for better SRB's first, then I had not enough time to research the landing stuff with all its requirements.
  14. What did you do in KSP today?

    It is 1984 now, and there are only 2 Voyager probes (3 & 6 ) left. The other ones did their job. So I adjusted Voyager 6's trajectory to first swing by Uranus and then intercept with Neptune. Voyager 3 will fly by Uranus much much closer, and will maybe even do a capture burn.
  15. What did you do in KSP today?

    Mars Explorer 02 flew by Deimos and finished its primary mission. I am not sure what I will do with it next: Then I launched two probes to Saturn and Mercury: The Mercury probe was launched on the same rocket. I never went to this planet, so poor Mercury will get some attention now
