    Hmmm...should be an end node waypoint guiding you there. I will look into it and see what' up. Thanks for the input. Also, is there a waybtobchange go to waypoint colora?? Sometimes they are almost impossible to see EDIT: Tweaked the last node so it's more obvious and added some flavor text to help guide you. You can find the slightly updated DXX version here and on the original post. Thanks for pointing that out @dazhat! Chapter 1 DXX

    Hey all! Just wanted to check in and let you all know that I am currently working on chapter 4. However, the past week and the next two are really busy for me, so I won't have a lot of time to devote to Kerbaling. I'm not exactly certain when I will finish it, but I wanted to let you know it is indeed coming...eventually. Thanks for the support for the others. And if any of you have or will stream any of the others let me know, I always love to watch a good Kerbal stream!

    Lol, smart, very smart Then pay CLOSE attention to what Jeb thinks you should do...it might just save your...spoiler.

    Just answered that in the hidden bit now. i'm going to go in and look at it, but I'm pretty sure it's marked end (and I figured out why it didn't register). If not, expect the 'DX' version soon, lol! Thanks mate, I always appreciate your feedback and help. Edit: Just checked, it IS marked end. So it must be that @GluttonyReaper I think I did mention that in the dialogue/notes and it should be listed on the objective node. My bad if not

    Hmmmm...... I've personally finished them and know others have (watched Million's stream). I will take another look and see if I can run through it and finish it. My only guess is that if you do or do not trigger a certain node in a certain way it could throw off the entire thing...but then again, why would the rest lead you to the end node? I don't understand programming logic well enough to troubleshoot everything perfectly, lol, but I will look again. One thing to keep in mind with chapter 2 is that you need to land as close to where you took off as possible, as the back half of the runway is 'closed' for construction. So land before (from the usual takeoff perspective) you reach any of the buildings and you should be good (the score system should work there too!) Glad you liked three. I'm curious how much trouble you had with the end, if any. That took some work to make just right! Edit:

    Chapter 3 is available here: Chapter 3 Download As I just mentioned in my first post and thanks to the help and tips of people like @million_lights, chapters that have been played and fixed after input will be marked with DX and are considered finished. I don't want to get in the habit of going back and re-uploading on a regular basis and having to do X.1, X.2, X.3 editions and so on. There will be an initial release and the finished/fixed DX version later. That being said, yes, I'm hoping they all release clean, but you know...things happen. Enjoy!

    Quick update: Chapter 3 will be done this week. Thanks to Easter and spring break I was busy throughout the weekend (not to mention I'm having trouble getting a certain part of the mission just right). It's taking a little longer than usual, but it will be done soon. Thanks to everyone who has helped with feedback or enjoyed the first two!

    Ah! VERY glad to hear it, I appreciate the kind words. For mission 2 you need to land on the lower half of the runway (before the barriers) for it to trigger the end screen. @million_lights streamed it last Friday or Saturday and you can watch his twitch replay to see. Bit just try to park near Explodey (assuming you haven't moved him). Chapter 3 will be out tomorrow or Saturday depending on how long it takes to fix a dock/undock issue.Cheers!

    Jeb's Life: A Kerbal Novel

    Hey all, Just a quick update on chapter 3. I'm working away on it and it's coming nicely. However, there is one little issue with the editor that won't let me create it as planned. For now I'm going to hold off on releasing it until the update comes out and fixes the issue. If that takes too long (more than a couple of weeks) I'm just going with plan B. But hopefully it's fixed sooner than later. Worst case scenario I will move onto 4 before releasing 3, that way it won't actually delay any future releases. It's not a huge issue, but I'd rather wait and go with my idea than have to compromise. Cheers! Edit: Err, ask and you shall receive...looks like the update just went live. All systems nominal!

    @million_lights I think I got it working. I just did a test and everything worked (including the ending awards). So I'm going to say...here is the finished chapter 2! Chapter 2 Download Important: You CAN quicksave and reload after failing a mission; click the 'close' button on the fail screen and it will take you back to the game where you can F9 to your previous quicksave. Not sure if everyone knew that or not, and it dramatically changes the nature of missions (no absolute perfection required). If you (or anyone) can, please stream it and let me know. Nothing like watching Kerbal things live! Happy Kerbaling!

    @million_lights I will take one more look at it tonight and send it your way tomorrow. Thanks for doing that...it's so frustrating to spend so much time and have one little problem Also, @Squelch7 I am updating the link to have Chapter 1 with a finish node. I honestly thought it was marked, and the one I'm linking to now has it marked, so if it doesn't for some reason that's on the game, not me, lol (that being said, if that IS the case, if anyone knows why it doesn't end feel free to let me know). I should mention-I think when I tried updating the Mission 1 link I didn't actually save posting the new URL for the zip...so it SHOULD work properly now The second one will be ready this weekend! Chapter 1 with finish

    I'm basically done with the second mission, but like the first, I'm having issues with a specific node. Is there anyone here that feels they could take a look at the mission and see why one of the 'fly through' objective nodes does not activate? It's the second to last one, right before finishing, and no matter what I do I can't get it to activate (including rearranging it, deleting what was before it, and altering how it is achieved). Let me know and I will send you the zip. Thanks!

    Well sir, you win the Internet today, that's the best Yeah, as far as I'm aware there is no way to lock craft to certain Kerbals or to lock Kerbals from being controlled or switched to at all. I try my best by making them stranded tourists that can't be rescued, but even then you can still switch. I wish there was a way to lock that, like a, you know...lock button on the 'spawn kerbal' *hint hint @SQUAD* Anyway, I'm just finishing up bug-testing the second mission and should have it done by Friday/Saturday at the latest!

    Didn't know that, interesting, I appreciate you telling me! Glad you enjoyed it, lol. It's a bit rough for a first go but I'm glad to share something you like. The second one is coming along nicely and will expand on the ideas a lot. Hopefully I will be done by Saturday again (weekly or bi-monthly releases sound doable for now). I actually added two on purpose...because Kerbal rage frustration, kerbal smash! ...In reality I added two because I couldn't figure out why it wouldn't let be board, so for the final release I doubled it in case people needed two options, figuring overkill is better than frustration. I don't know why it won't let you board properly. I tried a completely different craft and it too has a hard time letting me board that specific cockpit. Not sure if bug or incompetence. Anyway, thanks for sharing and I'm glad you liked it. I'm definitely working on expanding the story every day!

    I don't know why it does that, it's no different than any other plane I've made Just keep climbing. Eventually you will stand on the cockpit. If you do that and move around you're sure to find the B to board indicator. Annoying as crud, but no idea how to fix it.
