    How did you pick your username?

    What can I say? I love Soviet armoured vehicles. Also yeah I kinda am one.

    What's your dream planet?

    Ever since global warming (or just bad luck I guess) eradicated any chance of good snow where I live I've wanted to live on a nice chilly planet so I can always lob snowballs and wear my ushanka hat.

    What is your save/space agency called?

    My main career save is called "Kosmos Exploration Initiative". Basically I'm establishing a military presence exploring the Kerbol system in the name of Stalin science. I think my sandbox for testing is called "Testacular" or something like that.

    Moon is a Black Hole

    How can you have a flat black hole? And what's the moon? Seriously though it would probably be pretty spooky if it just spontanously happened and I'm sure many theories would be thrown out the window.

    What is the most sucessful mission you've ever done?

    Once I finally grasped KSP properly, I wanted to try landing on the Mun again. I'd done it before but it was a horribly horrible method and I'm pretty sure the rocket fell over on the Mun and I had to use cheats to right it. So, I used all my newfound knowledge and managed to get to the Mun and back perfectly. I knew what was going on the whole time, knew when to burn, in what direction, etc. and it was very satisfying. I'd say that was my most successful mission as it was sort of my moment of KSP enlightenment where it all just clicked and I finally understood orbital mechanics. From then on I learnt the rest of the standard orbital manouvers with relative ease and also with a feeling of pride as it was the first time I really ever tought myself something. (Of course good ol' Scott Manley helped... A lot.)

    New Career Playthrough Question (add-ons/historical)

    Another mod for a more realistic start is "Unmanned before manned" but it's similar to "Better than Starting Manned" so whatever I guess. Other than that you might like Ven's Stock Revamp as it makes a lot of the parts look more realistic while also keeping the kerbal feel. Dunno if it's updated for whatever version you're using though.

    Should I make a SSTO to have payloads, or rockets?

    I'd make an SSTO becuase it's cooler. I've only recently started building SSTOs, but they are quite fun and also pretty challenging.

    What is your favorite mods?

    Planetary Base Systems and Airplane Plus are must haves for parts. I also really like Ven's Stock Revamp as it makes everything look at least 20% cooler. Mechjeb and Kerbal Engineer are also pretty much mandatory for me as they give you info you really should have in the stock game, and well, mechjeb is always there if you're feeling too lazy to do that manouver.

    Thank you, devs!!!! :D

    I've yet to find a space game that I enjoy as much as KSP. While I certainly don't have a definitive favourite game, KSP is certainly one my favourites.

    What gameplay rules do you impose on yourself?

    For me, it is unacceptable to kill a kerbal or leave a kerbal in space with no way home. All Kerbals who are stranded must be rescued as soon as possible. I know, I'm surprisingly humanitarian for a Soviet armored vehicle.

    What are your craziest dreams?

    Sometimes I sort of doze off, but am still awake, and I dream/think about falling over or something, so I sort of lurch forward in my seat to try and re-balance myself but I just end up looking like an idiot who almost jumped out his chair for no reason.

    Rocket Poster (NOW TAKING REQUESTS)

    Oh no, I didn't want you to actually make one, but thanks for the offer . I was just saying what I would want in response to the original post.
