  1. @Kebab Kerman Maybe you should make sure that the game is actually running on your AMD Radeon. If the correct driver-package was never installed for it, or if an update has messed things up, KSP might actually be running on the inbuilt (very bad) graphics-capabilities of your intel CPU. Happened to me not only once to have bad experiences in games until realizing it was not running on my laptops GPU (which was physically there!), but just using the CPU-graphics....
  2. I finished my Minmus refueling station....kind of And did give my core staff a day off for a social team building program... needless to say everybody was thrilled! After a Minumus Landing (Flag Planting) - SolFlyby - Mun Orbit - Kerbin Land .... there are now 17 new 3-star Kerbals available for duty
  3. Yesterday .... (sorry hehe), I managed to build my first SSTO worth that name! (Yeah, yeah, don't compare it to other stuff posted here. But hey, it's my first ) Ready on the runway: Accidentally, I got the orbital meeting with my kerbin space station just in time to get a screeny with the sun, mun, kerbin SS and the SSTO in one shot Now as it is docked and fueld up...I am thinking if I should land it on Kerbin (I have done a "fuel-almost-empty-start-and-landing-test" before the real start). Or.....if I should fuel it up completely and go for outer space??? But TODAY, I decided to
  4. Today I went into spaced mode and built my first "spaced out rocket" It actually does what it's supposed to, in a Kerbal way (slightly overpowered) Enough dV to go places....but nothing really to do there...so I sKipped that part Landed well, Valentina was just a bit lazy with the trajectory. Does anyone know if this actually influences the aerodynamic drag?
  5. Welllllllll.......llll.... I might be up for 3 or 5 laps... I know after six I would be too pumped with adrenalin For tracks...do you want to stay on the KSC grounds? Maybe define a max distance for each track/lap ? (Or someone...someone....might come up with a pole to pole thingy or worse )
  6. Aaaannd Yes! Did it in under 1 Minute Nighttime racing....highly recommended on this track! The buggy is fully electric and all stock parts. (I never got my belly button [COM] that low before hehe)
  7. I learned a bit more about wheel-settings But it is slowly getting darker on Kerbin and Jeb needs to get something into his stomach, if he wants to or not! His times are slowly getting better though The windshield is a bit scratched by now
  8. I had a plan for today: Build a bigger, better, superimproved, asteroid-katcher! Ermmmm, instead I did install the Races! mod, loaded @Triop 's track and built a new race buggy. ....Jeb doesn't want to get out of the car anymore, he seems very determined to get a good lap-time! ...which might take a while
  9. hmmm.... when (re)loading ksp with this mod I only get "Unsupported KSP Version - Use 1.2.1". Ingame I don't see any controls or whatsoever from the mod. And I don't see any way to load the race track... Running 1.4.5 also... (Other mods currently are MechJeb, KER, Alarms). Did you uninstall all other mods for this? Or any other ideas? Oh crap haha, got it....just had to load a vehicle first to get the interface/button... Now, building a new buggy :-)
  10. That is useful information! Do you happen to know if it makes a difference if the landing legs are extended or retracted? Or all the same...? My experience with wobbling space stations after docking another vessel to them: If I dock with only RCS but then instantly turn the SAS on again on the whole thing, once docking is done...the SAS then managed to get everything steady out again.
  11. This thing is doing very well on Minmus and I think, if you don't fill the ore tanks completely (it has lots of ore tanks), should work well on mun as well. On Minmus, I can pick up a full load 2 to 3 times to my space station (refinery) without refilling the fuel tanks.
  12. Today I finished a "few days program"...as I had given myself (no wait, ...had given all the fabulous engineers from Kerbin...) the task to build the smallest plane I could (no wait....they could!) Here we go: and NO....it did not fly. Although the engineers sounded perfectly confident before... So, step 2! ...and step 3! Liftoff...kind of.... Many explosions (Yes!! ) later...version 4 took off! (I mean...kind of really flew!??) I guess to really call it an airplane..I should land it with more than just Jeb surviving....but most landings still looked like this:
  13. Well, I can only figure out my time for the rover race part. 02:04:00 until 02:26:02 = 22min02sec The flight time is lost, as the one pic is on MET....I would have to fly again and take a new time Can I get a rating for only the ground part? (kind of like....begging....hrhr)
  14. I decided to take a break from my first ever (career) game in ksp and startet my first ever sandbox game to copy this save file into.... ...so many firsts... - first ever sandbox game - first ever challenge to take on - first ever cargo plane to transport a rover - first ever rover delivered by cargo plane I am very pleased with the result Edit: Just saw I had MET on on the landing shot...sorry about that, just write "ridiculously long anyway"
  15. Well, this was not exactly all today, but today Jeb and his friends finally landed back on Kerbin, after their first successfull landing on another planet! Yes, we did Duna for the first time! ...save landing back home... As the window was there, 3 rockets actually went there and were able to setup the first relay network for Duna, as well as bringing a surface scanner that did polar Duna survey followed up by Ike. All seems ready for colonization on the next transfer window Ah yes, and now my science is DONE! Bank account is full enough with over 20 million, so I cons
  16. Sunrise approach for 7 Kerbals after a tourist mission of: Kerbin - Minmus landing - Kerbol(sun) orbit - Mun landing - Kerbin landing First time I managed to land at KSC
  17. It was decided that there can never be too many electrics components installed....especially when the kerbal administration just approved the request for a full blast cinematic theatre! So everybody gathered and a group photograph was taken just before it was realized that Bill had forgotten to install the TV screen...
  18. My Minmus Space Station is growing... The second miner (upgrade) has landed near the first one... Now we are talking ore
  19. Well.... I happen to live in the tropics... But is this a glitch, or rather an easter egg of the mod? Who knows.... Your kerbals all right? I hope they all got to the roofs...
  20. Compared to most posts here, I feel pretty "low tech". But hey.... Leeford is enjoying the tanning-studio-deck While Jeb is thinking: This docking situation might have been a bad idea from the beginning??? But it worked out! 13 docking ports ready for future sub-assembly-storage, fuel transfers, crew transfers, a better-tug-than-this-little-shii, and whatever I can think of in the future.... Edit: Jup, the angles are a bit off
  21. OK, that totally makes sense. Thank you for this info. Need some fuel?
  22. I am happily confused today.....confused but happy....con... whatever! Well, my Minmus miner works as a charm, with all its wrong tanks and stuff. I did a complete miscalculation on the dV-needs for landing (no ore) and starting (45 tons of ore), but luckily in the direction so that it now is way overpowered. Also I wasn't sure if those NERV engines would be any good for starting something heavy off of Minmus...but hey, here it goes: Now...can someone please explain to me the secrets of fuel/ore transfer? Is there a way to set more than one tank at the same time to "out"? And,
  23. Wellllll, after my first ever mining attempt...at the mun yesterday (only because of a contract...mun gravity makes mining there so useless anyways)...I started a mining project on Minmus today. Much bigger, more advanced contraption (I thought). So, getting myself to new personal records again...a lifter able to put 140+ tons into space (totally new for me...totally expensive in my first ever career mode game...but money is easy on normal difficulty). Anyways, I made so many engineering mistakes again (learning curve!!!!). Have fun looking at the pic and telling me why the heck I
