    So what is Serenity?

    Could it be referring to consoles?

    What crimes against Kerbin have you committed?

    I took a twin boar engine and spagetified 16~ kerbals because i got board once.
  5. I've been trying to land on a barge (from a mod) for a little bit, and so far this is the closest I got to landing. Any tips? (I'm not using kos or krpc, I'm just trying to do it by hand.)

    What did you do in KSP today?

    That explains it...

    What did you do in KSP today?

    I built (and landed, although a few feet off the runway) my first shuttle today. I still need to work on creating more lift on the Shuttle though... Do I need the center of mass in the front or the back?
  8. (I didn't get the replies in my notifications, so I'm replying to a bunch all at once. Thanks for all of your suggestions!) Sounds interesting, I'll be sure to check that out soon! I like those alternate history sort of thought experiments. Sounds like a fun read, seems a little more fictional (I'm perfectly okay with unrealistic, I'm mostly just in a sci-fi kick. But, I'm just looking for some stories focusing on the space part of it, instead of the type of fantasy/sci-fi that has grown so common since star wars came out. I have no problem with star wars by the way.), but from your description, it seems worth checking out. That looks cool. The science doesn't have to make perfect sense in my opinion, just as long as it makes a good story. We couldn't have gotten the Martian without the storm, and the storm wouldn't have been possible in real life. I'll add it to my list that I'm now making for these. I think the idea of interstellar space being a massive voyage is very fun. It's not like most sci-fi (which, again, I don't have anything against) where they pop from one star-system to another in seconds in a tiny little ship. It's just cool to think of these massive endeavors interstellar space travel is. I'm sure that the martian will be outdated in a few years as well, but I don't think that the fact would subtract from how fun the martian was. I might as well check out the series since I've got a lot of time during my day to read, might as make sure I don't ever go short of something fun to read. Seems like it would be a fun read, especially if you name your Kerbals after it. I'll be sure to put this series pretty high on my newly formed list. I like to hear about possible solutions for problems that we will probably face in the future. I think it's kind of interesting to think about how we will explore in the future. I already love to blow up virtual backyards. Sign me up. Doesn't have to be exactly like the Martian. Sound good!
  9. After I finished the martian, i am left without anthing to fill my semi-realistic scifi needs. Do any of you have a suggestion?

    Complete graphical overhaul?

    Oh, that makes sense. Then totally.

    Complete graphical overhaul?

    I think that they're already content with the EVE and Scatterer mods, but I think it would be nice.

    What did you do in KSP today?

    I launched the first parts of my new space station today. It's probably my biggest yet.

    BFR concepts and ideas thread.

    So, Spacex has said that they want to make the BFR into public transport, as explained by this video: The thing is though, is that if you want to have the rocket near a city like that, there would be a lot of noise created from the rocket, even if it is far away from the city. We've once tried to make supersonic planes a thing, but they were too loud for people living nearby. Plus, the average rocket success rate is 90-98%, and if 2 out of 100 planes crashed, nobody would fly. Also, during the end, it appears they would be using a suicide burn to land, but the amount of ge-force endured during a suicide burn is much higher than any trained astronaut, let alone untrained civilians could possibly endure. I would absolutely love to go to space, but im not 100% sure it's possible. What do you think? Edit: can the mods please move my post to spaceflight discussion? I didn't mean to post this here.
  14. Hey, I've installed RSS n stuff, but i have no idea what im doing. So far, I haven't been able to find much. Does anyone know any good tutorials for RSS? (I use 1.3.1 btw)
