    Explore Duna contract not completing

    Had one not too long ago - unfortunately I can't remember when this one was ticked.

    Is MechJeb hate still a thing?

    I have multiple KSP installs - some with MJ, some without. I really enjoy playing all of them.

    Limited crew control why?

    Try Tutorial:Setting up a CommNet system Use a Resonant Orbit Calculator to space the relays in orbit.
  4. I really like the idea behind the scheduling options for the bi-impulsive transfers. Thank you.
  5. Try Kerbal Joint Reinforcement.
  6. Strangely enough, Mechjeb seems to manage staging tanks ok, but put engines under those tanks and it refuses to stage them unless fuel ducts are used. Though maybe I'm missing something.
  7. If you hold the shift key down when using the "w" key, your kerbals will run instead of walk. Like the look of your rover.
  8. Coming from you, that's a heck of a compliment.
  9. Looked like it might be a reasonable time @Klapaucius, so I tried again - here is 4:58. (This is my first ever video upload - apologies if it doesn't work out too well)

    Hydrofoil Building Help (2nd Post Attempt)

    Wow, that's fast. What sort of range I wonder? And yeah, my boats suck but I never try to build the Mona Lisa. Twenty hours around Kerbin includes design/test/mission time. I think it would be easy to spend that long just learning to build something that went 400m/s.
  11. Yeah - torque from the reaction wheel and the cockpit flips it really, really easily. Yet once it gets going, SAS keeps it pretty stable at 60 - 70m/s as long the authority limiters of the canards are set correctly. Range is about 300km. Notice this one is still carrying an ISRU.
  12. Unfortunately, when Jeb climbs out to plant the flag, he starts his own timer from zero. Anyway, just to get the ball rolling, here's a time of 8:19 - timed after planting the flag and jumping back into the rover. Shouldn't be hard to take a couple of minutes off that time.

    Hydrofoil Building Help (2nd Post Attempt)

    I'm sure there are a shedload of great boat designs out there but you're right - the range of the craft is nearly as important to me as speed. I think it took me about twenty hours all up to go around Kerbin and I stopped to mine ore seven times although my tanks were usually far from empty. Without an ISRU, if you had to fly a seaplane in each time, well, that might add to that total time. And for an equatorial circumnavigation of Laythe - using an ISRU to refuel - you need a range of about 1200 - 1300km. The first time around Laythe, I ran out of fuel in the middle of the Degrasse Sea. That left a bad taste so I went back again with the boat below - with two Panthers, it had a range of well over 2000km at speed so after splashing down with full tanks, it needed to be refueled just once to complete the circumnavigation. But it was a pita to drive.
