  1. [Author's Note: I built and orbited my first ever SSTO at the weekend. Been on a nostalgia kick through the KSP fanfiction classics recently, so decided to write a wee story about it all. Enjoy!] Who was Roncald Kerman? If you asked Linus, the head of R&D here at the Kerbal Space Center, he'd tell you Roncald was a brilliant but distracted student, whose mind tended to wander at the slightest provocation. If you asked Gene, the leading CAPCOM controller, he'd tell you Roncald was a harmless layabout, scatter-brained and occasionally injury-prone. If you asked Agani Kerman, head
  2. Chapter Three: Rendezvous Argonaut-1: first kermanned mission of Argonaut Block II! Vorpal Launch System Block I: static fire tests. Well, I've run out of time, and I want to devote an entire chapter to all the Mun-flyby screenshots anyway, so arrivederci and toodlepip! See you in the next update!
  3. Yep. I admit it. I completely forgot about this mission report! Oddly, I had all the pictures for the next update ready on my hard drive by February 6th - I must've totally forgotten to actually post said update. Well, I have more time to work on KSP, and figuring out the engineering mysteries of now, so I'd say tomorrow morning New Zealand time would be a fair time to expect an update. Sorry about the long wait, and see you all then!
  4. Great to have you back, Dark! Excellent work on the new chapter: I really enjoyed reading through it, and of course the continued presence of Arcazon in the story is great. Hoping to have more excellent discussions with you as you continue the story.
  5. Bifrost Station, in 135km Low Kerbin Orbit (JNSQ) Docked to the closest nadir port to the camera is VTS-24 'Kounesso' one of the KSSA's expendable autonomous resupply vessels.
  6. After a long break for Christmas, my birthday and even a camping trip, I'm back to my PC and KSP. Update should be out very soon!
  7. Hi all! I just recorded footage for my first ever KSP cinematic; annoyyingly, even though I used ctrl+F2 to hide the HUD, the cursor's still there, and it's ruined 20 mins of footage. Are there any ways to fix this?
  8. Wow, no way! I've been listening to this soundtrack on YouTube while playing through my mission report save - it works incredibly well for exploring JNSQ, which up until now I've never used. Your music perfectly captures the essence of KSP, and of exploring the unknown. I will have to download this mod post haste! Incredible work, and I take my hat off to you - it's brilliant.
  9. Wow, that must've taken some serious flying skill to get into orbit! Fantastic job!
  10. All boots are on the ground and furiously working at the KSSA Yes, the vessel pictures were captured in Kronal Vessel Viewer and edited together in Microsoft Paint.
  11. Chapter Two: The Second Verse, Much The Same As The First Following on from the successful initial test of the Argonaut Block III, and the failed attempts at an orbital test with the Block II, KSSA approved a longer testing and milestone schedule for the Argonaut program. It read as follows: Year 51, day 132: Theseus re-entry and crew capsule abort testing. Year 51, day 146: Argonaut Block II Low Kerbin orbit test, attempt #3. Year 51, day 167: Argonaut Block III high-speed ballistic re-entry test. Year 51, day 173: Vorpal Launch System Block I test/static fire. Year 51, day 184: Argonaut
  12. Yep, the Argonaut spacecraft are made with stock parts, although I do use the ReStock+ mod with a few extra parts for lifters/launchers. Thank you Glad you're looking forward to it
  13. Chapter One: Testing, Testing, We're Trying to Get Through After the end of the Dynawing spaceplane program, the Kerman States Space Administration was left without manned spaceflight capabilities, and was forced to purchase seats on the Kostov crew ferries opreated by the Krassvet Federation. Times were dark in an era of declining budgets and wilting public support, and gradually, citizens of the Kerman States began to forget the great achievements of the KS manned space program. Until, one day, everything changed. The Kerman States government gave the go-ahead for the KSSA to develop t
  14. Hey everyone! I'm SiriusRocketry, and this mission report came about after a corrupted save file killed my abortive Jool V attempt. I've been struggling with staying committed to stock KSP, as my litany of barely-started mission reports on the forum can attest, so I was looking for a fresh challenge. I'd heard of the JNSQ planet pack on the grapevine, and after a bit of inspiration from both @septemberWaves's Constellation mission challenge and @Misguided Kerbal's JNSQ and BDB modded mission report One Small Step, I decided to embark on a new quest; creating a Kerbalized Orion program to t
  15. I'm going to be starting a new Jool 5 sometime later, and I have a JNSQ save file in progress that I might post to the forums at some point. Functionally though, Project Daedalus is gone. I might publish what the plans were for the storyline of the mission if anyone's interested.
