    Fastest Juno-powered aircraft

    I wasn't able to beat 820 m/s, but I think I got close enough. 817.3 m/s. That screenshot had to be taken in a video replay, since this was coming in from a dive of 25,000m. The unaltered video:!o9glVASJ!ReApSwK3YjjpguTifuLuFMCUgAAu15DJ-gBM1fcQNno

    [1.6.1] KRE - Kerbal Reusability Expansion

    At the moment it's most likely that it's MM that is causing the issues. I guess we'll have to wait for MM to update. According to the ModuleManager thread, it seems that even earlier versions are causing problems. Therefore, it's most likely that 1.6 is interfering with MM right now. The temporary solution, courtesy of ShadowZone:
  3. Hi, Will the regular TextureReplacer (now being maintained again by shaw) work with Spectra? Or will I need HaAr's TRR? I wanna say it's Kerbal remains but I don't wanna get charged with kerbalslaughter.
  4. Accepted. Will begin developing. Nice challenge!

    I second. My KSP takes like 15 minutes to reload when I have to delete a mod.

    SSTO Ascent profile urgently needed

    Got it, will edit that post.
  7. Building Orion capsules from stock parts isn't hard. You will need to use the offset tool a decent amount, but if you spend some time, you can get some pretty accurate replicas. Alternatively, KerbalX by @katateochi at has some really good replicas. Select the stock option, and look up "Orion" or "Deep Space Gateway", and I'm prettu sure you'll find some good ones.
  8. I'm not sure if Squad is pursuing realistic plumes much, but I would recommend RealPlume: It's listed 1.4, but it works with 1.5 no problem.

    Your Finest Hour in KSP

    Oh wow. I had to rack my brain for this. Most of my launches are either successes or end in loud booms. Anyways, I'm building K-Prize SSTOs right now, and my 1st design was the Bainbridge Aerospace BA-50 Sparrow: I'm going for Advanced Pilot Precision, or at least Pilot Proficiency with this bad boy, so I began testing it. So I'm coming in for reentry toward the KSC, and I realize that the KSC is glitched out. Badly. So I do exactly what the warning label says I shouldn't do. I push down hard, and she flips out for a solid 20 seconds, and makes Jeb very green. I mean, he was green already, but MOVING ON... I eventually began going straight down into the ocean, so I pulled up hard, and bled off speed like crazy, just before touchdown, and ditched about 10km off KSC, saving Jeb, and the entire SSTO. Whew! I fixed the flickering KSC with a simple restart, and all was good. STILL haven't managed the runway tho...

    SSTO Ascent profile urgently needed

    Good idea. Problem being, my PC's memory got corrupted, and I lost all my craft. I'll try it with a Mun-capable SSTO when I get my PC back.
  12. I really love the idle animations, especially of Jeb on the Mun, but when the animations are done, the Kerbals jitter into the regular pose. I know I'm being perfectionist, but can you please make it smooth? It really bothers me!
  13. Hey, congrats on TOTM. This is a neat mod, will download when I replace the SSD in my computer, since the current one got corrupted.
  14. Hi, This is the Longneck. Bainbridge Aerospace hasn't decided an official name for it yet, but we'll figure it out: As you can see, Longneck has a good 11k dV, however, when Longneck is passing through the atmosphere, we only have 1k dV to circularize, and 300-400, and if we're lucky 500 m/s dV to deorbit. I am pretty sure I'm using the wrong ascent profile. I use the entire runway, accelerate to 500m/s below 1000m, and pitch up 20 degrees. Help me?

    What did you do in KSP today?

    And they ask why the kerbonauts are getting radiation poisoning...
