    No Time for Caution from the Interstellar soundtrack. I deliberately damaged an interplanetary craft and spun it up to high speeds when I had to Dock a Laythe SSTO to it. 'You can't dock with the Kraken 7 Jeb! It's impossible!' 'No. It's necessary.'

    Exploration Methods

    My interplanetary career missions go like this (examples from current career) Duna is the subject of this list: Pilgrim program (probes) Pilgrim 2: flyby Duna and Ike Pilgrim 5: orbiter of Duna, mini Ike lander Pilgrim 7: orbiter for Ike, Duna landing Theta program (manned) pre-Mission 1: cargo launched to Duna, nuclear mothership assembly in orbit. Theta 1: Landing in the Midlands Sea: 40 day stay. Theta 2: Landing just below the North Pole. 25 day stay Theta 3: Landing in Duna Highlands, 37 day stay (last 8 days of mission aborted due to imminent lander damage) Theta 4: Landing 5km from the lip of the Western Canyon. 55 day stay Theta 5: Final mission: landing in Duna's Midlands. 45 day stay.
  3. First Kerbin orbiter probe, like Sputnik and Explorer I. Sorry for the confusion.
  4. @Raptor9 I am surprised you haven't posted the first Kerbin orbiter probe

    The most angry youve gotten in KSP

    An hour of Jool maneuvers ruined when a time warp glitch flung my ship into a massive elliptical orbit with a periapsis in the atmosphere. 80 kilometres deep in the atmosphere. The craft disintegrated, and five total hours were rendered null and void >:(
  6. I want to use cockpits for a realistic feel: no kerbals sticking out of a craft. How much DV is required for a Tylo lander and a Laythe lander (separate)?
  7. @GRS Yeah... I am currently in the testing phase of my mission. I will send pics when done. I am stuck with fitting three landers on mothership: or even two creates asymmetric weight- Vall Bop and Pol lander weighs roughly 6t and Laythe lander (still under revision is closer to 15-20. I'm trying to get a realistic feel, so the nuclear mothership is being constructed in LKO. Any advice?
  8. Incidentally, does anyone have any visual mods for 1.6.1? Considering jumping from 1.3.1 to a new version for the first time in a year.
  9. Extended space travel? Getting to and crashing on the Mun only takes a couple of days!

    Kerbal Powers Roleplay

    Um is itokay to play solely as a story based nation? Not too keen on BDarmory tbh

    The Space Program With No Name (updated Jan 12, 2019)

    Updated on my birthday! Hurrah!
  12. I MUST attempt this. Never did it before, and I can't call myself a Kerbal until I do... I'm out of retirement, baby!

    Looking for what to do in KSP.

    Sounds incredibly tricky to do in so few launches. I'd extend it out a bit maybe, add Duna.
