  1. KSP became my second game to reach 1,000+ hours, second only to Garry's mod. I purchased both in 2015, but I only ever got around to playing KSP two years later. My GMOD hours currently sit at 1,048 hours, and my Kerbal Hours are 1,011.
  2. I knew someone who claimed that their station was hit by an asteroid once. Does anyone know what the odds of that would be?
  3. Is the zip file for spectra 1.2.5 corrupted for anyone else? I've tried re-downloading it 3 times and each it is corrupted. I even tried 1.2.4 and it also was corrupted. Even Ckan doesn't work. I am using winrar and it gives the following message every time i try to extract the files. ! D:\Desktop\Visual Mods\Spectra-1.2.5.zip: The archive is corrupt
  4. It is closer, but because the sun is smaller, it probably emits less heat, which would put the optimal spot for life somewhere closer to the sun. Idk if squad actually did the math to put kerbin and jool in accurate spots, but judging by the fact that the next planet over is literally an icy waste land, we can assume that it's pretty cold in the Jool system.
  5. I don't think it's that realistic that Laythe has liquid water on its surface that far away from the sun. Then there are a bunch of problems with engines & fuel: Real engines have a limited amount of start-ups. Cryogenic propellants boil off. Not all engines can use the same fuel. We don't have to worry about the fuel floating around in the tanks rather than entering the engine, and thus don't need ullage motors.
  6. I feel like this is a description of the space shuttle. lol
  7. Honestly Kerbol is the most underrated celestial body. I have only seen like 3 people do missions for stations orbiting around the sun. Honestly it makes sense though. Not much for us to do out there. I think it would be cool if squad added some new science gadgets that require craft in a circular orbit past moho and beyond jool to work. They'd be like the science lab's but without kerbals in them, but they require these extreme conditions.
  8. no, it's just that i wanted to be 110% sure just in case. Thanks! This is good news!
  9. They've released a few pictures on the official ksp website, and it looks similar, minus the ray-tracing.
  10. I wonder how interstellar travel will work. Will we be orbiting around a black hole? I do like that they showed off a planet with rings in the trailer. I also hope they keep most of the old parts, since it would suck to have to learn all the parts again. From what we saw in the trailer, this seems to be true though.
  11. I designed a space shuttle capable of docking to my space station, Space Shuttle Fortune. I created it after lessons learned from my previous Shuttle, Space Shuttle Mayflower. https://imgur.com/NVamEn7
  12. They're cheaper, stronger (usually), and are great for side boosters. Basically liquid SRBs.
  13. I play with G-Force on kerbals and have played a few saves with G-force on parts. Kerbal G-force is honestly way too easy. You only ever have kerbals pass out when you have extremely unrealistic re-entry profiles from eccentric orbits. I haven't tried it with a full on space plane before, but I have tested it before in planes going 450~ m/s at sea level. Slowing down/minor corse correction is fine, but if you want to make any major maneuvers it's very likely your wings would be blown off.
