  1. Show off your awesome KSP pictures!

    We are still trying to develop an Eve lander, however we got the green light for a Manned orbit of Eve, spacewalk and a landing on it's moon Gilly. Sorry for the lack of pictures of the spacewalk and surface of Gilly but this mission took me hours to do.

    Boldy go where no probe has gone before.

    The KSC is having trouble on an Eve lander design after the company that made the engines for the Laythe and Duna Landers stopped making the powerful models (They were highly radioactive) plus they needed to test if this new experimental material can withstand Eve's pressure and gravity. Bill had the idea to build a lander from the novel he's reading about a bunch of ape like creatures landing on a Planet that is bigger than Eve, so they agreed and did an unmanned test. We fixed the nosedive issue that happened with Elvira and the Classified first unmanned landing attempt. Drogue Chute deployed. Main Chute deployed. We have landed. Unfortunately the engines were too weak to get it off the ground, but good news is the Material used to make the lander did work and we had contact with the lander for 17 days before the signal went out.

    Jiggles Kerman, you had one job and that was to help Val land the space shuttle at KSC and you pitched too up which caused it too stall and splashdown. Don't give me that look, just for that and your careless actions you are disqualified from the Manned Eve missions.

    Images from the Cupid Probe when it was scanning Eve and Gilly, the probe was later sent to Kerbol due to fear of bacteria and radiation contaminating Eve or Gilly. Final shot of Kerbol before Cupid got disintegrated.

    Photos form the Elvira landing probe have arrived! Normally I would send an orbiting probe to take pictures and do Biome and terrain scans but based on Telescopic studies, it's size, thick atmosphere and closeness to Kerbol we had to make sure if a landing was even possible. Sadly 3 minutes after taking the picture we lost contact with Elvira even though it's generators were meant to make it last for 2 weeks. Even though she lasted 23 minutes on Eve, Elvira has given us alot of information of Eve. 1: A landing is possible. 2: It's radiation belt is way more stronger than the Van Kerman belt, however on the surface there is little to no radiation at all due to the thick clouds. 3: It's surface temperature varies from extreme cold to extreme hot even hotter than Moho, so we need to make suits that can adapt to the temperatures. 4: The Atmosphere is very deadly. 5: It does have seismic activity so Eve is active. 6: It's gravity and atmospheric pressure is very strong which might explain why we lost contact with Elvira so we need to make suits that can withstand the pressure, and I don't think a modified Duna or Laythe lander would work. Overall I am very happy the way this mission turned out.

    Testing out the Elvira Eve Lander Probe Prototype on Kerbin. The actual design will be revealed when it lands or crashes on Eve.

    Kerbal logic 101: Diving suits can work in space. Suit is by Green Skull, the links are still there but you need to add the website. Now if only there was a fully functioning diving helmet for Kerbal Inventory System.

    After taking a little break and going on a camping trip, i had sent a rover to Vall. Didn't explore more than 2 biomes but hey in less than 2 hours I covered 11km while Curiosity covered almost 16km in 5 years, then again NASA does not recklessly drive their rovers. The exploration of the Joolian system was fun but, i must tilt my hat to Jool and head on to Eve.

    I got good news and bad news. Bad news: Due to safety and budget concerns the underwater mission to Laythe has been cancelled, I'm sorry. Good news: We got the green light to send one rover to explore a Joolian moon before we focus on Eve, so far the three candidates are Tylo, Vall or Pol, feel free to comment which one I should go. Testing a prototype rover on Minmus, it has a camera, gieger counter, thermometer, laser surface scanner to see what it is made out of, a seismic reader and a gravity sensor.

    My first manned mission to Pol, for some reason the last 2 images have no black sides unlike the others. Next stop a one way underwater mission to Laythe.

    This mission had 3 first for me. 1: Bob finally became the first Kerbal on something. 2: Landing on Bop. 3: Going to Jool and Back in less than a year. I believe I can fly.

    My second manned mission to Jool, this time I landed on Vall and sadly while trying to land on Pol the game lagged so bad, thank god i saved before heading to Pol but we found cryo volcanoes and alot of seismic activity on Vall We're working on getting colored cameras to work on ships hopefully before we send a probe to Eve. We have landed. Pol before the game lagged like no tomorrow. Next missions are a landing on Bop, Probably Pol if the game doesn't lag, underwater mission of Laythe and then journey is to Eve.
  14. Railroad Flags for KSP

    I'll see what I can do with BR, as for the North Western Railway i need a logo of it that i can use to make a flag, the only one i made out of pure scratch is the 1218 the rest were i founded free to use logos, copied and pasted them to a flag ad added the background. I did make the Sodor flag.

    Image dump. Here are some pics of my first manned mission to Jool and landings on both Laythe and Tylo. That was fun but it took me over 6 hours in real time to do. Next mission will be another manned mission to Jool but this time landing on Vall, Pol and maybe Bop pending on fuel and monopropellant.
