    What is your most facepalm-worthy moment regarding KSP?

    Recently I decided it was time to send up the first module for a minmus mining base. I was in a hurry, so I just grabbed a premade booster from the subassembly list and launch, not bothering to check if the upper stage was made for a heavy crew module. Everything was great until the transfer burn, the transfer stage used a wolfhound, so the transfer burn was like 2 minutes and 30 seconds long. Since I’m impatient, I desided to use the capture stage to finish the burn, to speed things up a bit. Capture stage quickly ran out of fuel, leaving me to wonder if I could finish the transfer, capture at minmus, and land all with the 4 landing boosters on the sides of the base module. Only one way to find out, I pressed space to jettison the empty capture stage and ignite the landing boosters, then for some unknown reason, I pressed space again. I watched as the landing boosters flew off like missiles. Then I rage quit.

    Revelations of the Kraken (Chapter 34: Truth... and Consequences)

    Maybe the scepter is the power source, and the münstones draw their power from it. In the interlude from Whispers I mentioned before, the münstone seemed to be drawing power from the scepter.

    Revelations of the Kraken (Chapter 34: Truth... and Consequences)

    In the Interlude: Whispers of the Past, Shadows of the Future in Whispers of the Kraken, there is a relationship between the Empress’s münstone and a scepter. At the end of Whispers, Val has her münstone with her in the capsule. But as far as I know, Val’s münstone has not been mentioned in Revelations of the Kraken. Maybe she still has it, and could have the same powers as the Empress and Roland?

    Your first hours in KSP

    My first rocket in the demo was a mk1 pod with a rt5 and parachute on the same stage. Then I spent the next few days trying to get to orbit. The most I ever achieved in the demo was a mun flyby that condemed Jeb to a highly elliptical orbit in an EVAsuit that was out of propellant. When I got the full version, the first thing I did was get the biggest engine, and put it on a orange tank with a mk1-3 command pod on top. After some time playing KSP, I ended up deleting it for a while, returning in 1.1.3.

    Weird Shaking?

    Have you tried deactivating Physics Range Extender? I’ve had trouble with it causing things to shake.
  6. I was wondering if it might be something with PRE, I’ll reinstall it and see if it fixes the problem.
  7. I'm having satellites accelerating to escape velocity when I'm not focused on them. It seems to happen when I time warp, but I'm mot sure. This has happened multiple times, and all the satellites affected originate from the same craft. Not that the engines are turned off: This is the orbit after it glitched: I have BDA continued, vessel mover, and physics range extender installed.

    What did you do in KSP today?

    Does this qualify as "landed"? For some reason my minmus rover was teleported underground when I crashed a spent stage.

    How long does your game take to load?

    Stock probably around 10 minutes. When I had lots of mods it was almost always over 15 minutes, sometimes nearly 30. Ya, I have a terrible computer.
  14. Beautiful chapter! Can’t wait for the next one!
