  1. So the only means of control is adjusting the thrust limiter per engine, is that the idea?
  2. @QF9E, that is some truly impressive work! I've done some crazy stuff in this game, but never docked with something in orbit using SRBs only. You already have the mission badges and even the rare Skunkworks badge, so there's not much left I can give you. Maybe you'll inspire more people to do missions.
  3. Yeah that will be fine. I have some RSS badges ready to go. If you manage to get past the Mars (Duna) missions, I'll have to make some new ones.
  4. I'm still around, just been busy with other stuff lately. I'll review your submission when I get a chance.
  5. Do you have to take off from the KSC, or can you, say, get a lift to the nearby mountain and take off from there?
  6. Looking good! And a nice landing at an alternate site too! The base latitude is fine, if you round up it's 60°N. Good job Commander! (I remembered the right badge this time lol)
  7. If you have 4 cars driving at 90 kph, is the total speed 360 kph? No. This is the same thing.
  8. I just don't think a file-edited craft is truly stock, at least not when you use out-of-bounds values like negative mass. The game and KerbalX may think so, but that's a limitation of their programming. This is not to say that I'm a purist - my game is modded to Eeloo and back, and I've sometimes done weird stuff with file editing too. But I'm not claiming it's something else.
  9. Sounds like it's time to experiment.
  10. Looks nice. But if you're gonna resort to craft file editing, why not just use procedural wings and/or other mods instead?
  11. I'm not saying don't do it anyway, but this thread is 5 years old and the OP hasn't been seen since. I wouldn't expect an answer.
  12. I don't think that's what he's saying. Rather, the gyroscopic action of the wheels is only part of the answer. There's also the wheel trail, mass distribution, and overall geometry of the frame to consider. Your basic usable bicycle has these traits: The gyroscopic action tends to make the bike lean into the turn, which helps the bike get its wheels back under itself. The steering wheel (normally the front wheel) has positive trail - i.e., the steering axis intersects the ground in front of the wheel's contact point with the ground. The distance from the steering control poin
