  1. Thank you Episode 2 will be up soon. Not sure what I'll be doing.
  2. Haha, nice one! Of course it wasn't accidental right? You knew what you were doing all along and the commentary was just showmanship Really nice. Less than 1m/s touchdown!
  3. Hi Guys, It's been quite a while since I played KSP. I think the last time was December 2018. I was doing an out of science mission and I also bought the expansion and when I was done updating my Out of Science mission was kind of done as the Wolfhounds had been umm "rebalanced". Duna Mission which I'd spent a long time planning, designing the craft for and deploying got rebalanced with it and ended up dead in space as it relied on four of those lovley 415isp Wolfhounds. Rather than try to pick that thread up and receive a slapping for necromancy I thought I would just start over.
  4. Yeah, please don't defenestrate your computer. If I'd got to Duna Orbit and run out of Fuel I'd likely run a "Blunderbirds" mission to refuel it. ( assuming you have docking ports or a grabber )
  5. Thank you, without going into too much detail it's something I've lived with since my early years and will experience for the rest of my life. I'm just relapsing at the moment but outlook and mood wise I'm at the best I've ever been. This is my year!
  6. @FleshJeb 1) Thank you, I'll get there but it will take a few years 2) Oh I Wish, I'm a little old for Avenging but I could certainly be a Sorcerer. I'm actually doing murder mystery evening but I don't get paid for it until the end of April 3) Yes not enough to get a full VR setup but will definitely put a large dent in the price tag for the whole system upgrade. Trouble is my day job is paying less at the moment ( wages vary from day to day depending on demand ) Today the weather is throwing 50mph winds at me so it's too dangerous to work ( I'm a cycle courier with a large back
  7. I'm so sorry friends 3 Things have prevented me from continuing this adventure at the moment. 1) I've not been well ( I have long term illness ) 2) I've landed my first professional acting job, this mixed with my day job is taking up so much time 3) My graphics card has died and I can't currently afford to replace it - I need a GTX 1160 or better as someone introduced me to VR and now I HAVE to have my own setup.
  8. I've been off for xmass and not really been able to play. Duna very soon!.
  9. Wow, that is incredibly humbling. I'm really glad you've enjoyed reading this so far. I assure you, you can visit the Mün without a probe core and on just three tech boxes. Go for it!. Ahh I don't know what Kerbalism is - I'm playing with the following mods: 6 Crew Science Lab 6 Seat Mk3 Cockpit ABFW Better Burn Time Better Crew Assignment Better Time Warp Kerbal Alarm Clock Kerbal Engineer KOS ( not used ) Maneuver Node Evolved TAC Fuel Balancer The rest of my mods are all visual and don't affect game play beyond tanking my frame rate.
  10. I think maybe it can. I just don't know how to use it. * Edit * A quick look suggests it can do "cut" and "fade" in studio mode but isn't exactly what you'd call feature rich.
  11. I use OBS to record. KDEnlive is a video editing suite.
  12. The lander may get left in Duna Orbit if dV is looking a little slim. As for the Overkill - you'll have to wait and see. My plan is to record certain sections rather than just screenshot. So the launch of the core. Maybe attaching one arm ( 4 would get tedious ) I'll screenshot a refuellling trip to save the snores. Mostly I'm going to try and capture the interesting bits some of this depends on how frustrated I get with KDEnlive though It seems to be quite powerful. But also hard to use. Dammit Jim, I'm an actor, not a video editor!
  13. Something I just learned in testing before actually launching and assembling: The arms made of a fuselage and girders and holding the solar panel array - First of all I put down a Docking Port, then I added a small adapter plate. To that I attached the structural fuselage, then another adapter plate and then 3 girders and on the end of that another docking port. The solar panels were attached to the girders. I then wanted to hide batteries and reaction wheels inside the fuselage so I plopped them onto the node available on the docking port at the end of the arm and used the movement
