  1. I'm a huge PC snob and an avid Apple hater, but MacOS support should absolutely be a priority. More people would be able to buy the game and contribute to the community that way, and more Mac people will be joining the forums so I can bully educate them about their OS preferences.
  2. What are you drawing with? A mouse? A tablet?
  3. Or, hear me out, the old Mün texture was a placeholder so they could make a few small reveals with it and shoot a trailer. There's delays because it's a modern AAA game, of course there's gonna be delays.
  4. I really don't know. It's taken a while, but after about 250 hours I've landed a few times. I guessed 12. Now returning from the Mün? I'll have to get back to you after another 250 hours.
  5. Isn't squad headquartered in Mexico City? I hope everyone on the team is okay. @SQUAD Are y'all alright down there? This isn't really the right forum, but I bet a mod'll move it to the right place soon enough. If you want to talk about extra-forumal affairs, the Lounge section is the right place. If you want to have meta-discussions about the forums, check the Kerbal Network(?).
  6. Half Life: Alex (and a few other Valve games) has a developer commentary mode where you can play through the game as normal, but you can pick up Walkmans that have the developers' voice memos throughout the levels. They talk about struggles with lighting, how they decided on the movement system, the deliberation of plot points, and more. What if you found cassette tapes of floppy disks around the KSC with developer insights in a special mode? You could build yourself a little rover and drive around learning about the games' development.
  7. Maybe it pops up the first time, and it has a switch to turn it off. If you turn it off, you can turn pop-up info on in your settings. If you keep it on, the switch is still there for when you get annoyed. Maybe this happens when you science an anomaly? Kind of like the Squad monolith or the Apollo memorial.
  8. I think it's a cool idea, but community continuity might be a bit strange. If I find an easter egg and want to share it, it might be tough describing where it is. "Hey, I found a monolith paying tribute to the Gemini 8 astronauts in the Peepee Poopoo crater on the Mün!"
  9. No, intel will find a way to reverse the smallening of their transistors. 18mm, 600-watt Stupid Lake chips somehow still on the level of AMD.
  10. Honestly, RTGs are so boring. It's just place-and-forget free power. Sure, it's efficient and yada yada, but it's not as cool looking or powerful as a good set of massive solar panels, nor is it as established and impressive as a massive fuel refinery and some rocket engines running alternators.
  11. It's been a while since I've been on the forums very actively, but I recognize your avatar. 6/10.
  12. I like windows because - Been using Windows since my first PC in the XP days - I'm used to the interface - I know how to diagnose problems and errors in Windows. If I switch operating systems, I'll have to learn new fixes and junk. I had to work on a bunch of Macbooks last summer, and resetting them/ using their BIOS isn't really more difficult, but I'm just already used to Windows. - Gaming on Windows is just better, no question. Sure, it's getting better on Linux and by extension Mac, but Windows beats them out in terms of game compatibility every time. - Xbox! I lo
  13. "Kernel" like Colonel or a popcorn kernel or that nerdy linux thing I keep hearing about. "Kraken" like Crack-inn, just the Norse sea monster. Believe it or not, I didn't name myself after the KSP Kraken. Unless you pronounce "Graphic" like "Giraffe", it should be pronounced Geonovast with a hard G. I've always read it with a soft G/ J sound, though. If it's a J sound, I'm fighting @Geonovast for saying Gif with a soft G sound like some kind of egg-nor-ray-mousse.
  14. I think you're asking how a satellite will get power after we send it off? I bet the game will have solar panels, fuel cells, or even small nuclear power sources. I hope we get some new and interesting things, though. Imagine solar sails, laser ablation drives, nuclear pulse engines!
  15. I think your post title could use some more explanation points. In a serious note, I've never heard of a Mün launch site. Sounds like a cool idea!
