    What did you do in KSP today?

    Today I've visited a certain mini-moon. And landed on it (something that required a bit of tinkering with engines as they are normally a bit too powerful for a low-gravity world like Gilly) And then I took a look at remaining dV and decided to visit the other two biomes as well, landing near a green obelisk along the way just for the heck of it. That said, I'll probably need to tinker with my save file to unlearn a few nodes: I'm not only 15k science away from transcending into "sandbox with limited money and unleveled kerbals" game mode. Or I can just set science modifier to 10% and see what happens...

    I've finally assembled KSS Voyager from a few pages ago in my career game, and now I'm docking the lander to her. Ready to departure for Sarnus.

    Today I've played around in the sandbox, designing a new mothership. Meet KSS Voyager. Ain't she a beauty? Has enough dV to go anywhere in OPM-extended system and then return home without refuelling. Unlike its predecessor, however, carries only a few scientific instruments on its own: most of the instruments will be on the lander (not pictured). Now I need credits to actually build and launch into LKO this thing in my career...
  4. In orbit parameters, shift LPE by ±120 (degrees). Do note that setting e.g. +120 degrees there will set that satellite IN FRONT of that at 0 degrees orbit-wise (if order is important)

    Performed another Duna landing, this time in polar regions: ...Why is it so pink here?

    Today, I did some pretty screenshots 1. Launching a rocket at Dusk 2. Kerbin is just beautiful! (A bit dark, though ) 3. A lander about to begin its descend towards Duna's surface Congratulations! I'm still about 60k science away from completing my tech tree - I'm using CTT though...
  7. It works just fine in 1.4.* as far as I can tell need. There might be some issues, but I don't routinely run into them. And I use OPT spaceplanes for a good half of my kerbal'ed mission.
  8. Not very fancy, but here it is, my Minmus Refueling Station (with ore miner docked)

    Today, I've landed on Duna: Obligatory flag planting: And once all of the science was collected, it's time to begin the long journey home (no botanists were forgotten on the surface): Goodbye, Duna! All in all, it was a pretty successful mission, though I don't think I will continue using this particular design of landers. It's much less stable than the one I've used for Ike and Moho (due to being in 2.5m form-factor instead of 3.75, thus ending up with CoM way higher off the surface). Oh, and stock 2.5m probe core doesn't allow one to store surface samples, unlike (even resized) NFLV ones.

    [1.4.5] OPT Reconfig v1.2.3 [Aug 10, 2018]

    Well, "no cryogenic fuels" in cockpit does make sense. As for Lithium... I don't think I actually ever used such engines outside of haul/test contracts in career, but, maybe, someone does use them, so...

    [1.4.5] OPT Reconfig v1.2.3 [Aug 10, 2018]

    @JadeOfMaar, is it intentional that OPT Spaceplane Cockpits don't have LqdH2 / Hydrolox but do have LF, LFOx and Ox options for tanks? Also, Lithium tanks are way too small on OPT parts (e.g. OPT J 4m Fuel tank can store only 2520 Lithium, but LFT-A20 from Near Future Propulsion (2.5m diameter and a bit shorter than 4m -- it can fit inside J-sized cargo bay) stores 17600)

    @LushChicken, almost all parts here are from mods. I don't actually remember which exact mods everything in that ship came from, but that lander is definitely using stuff from Near Future Solar, Near Future Electrical, Near Future Launch Vehicles, Station Parts Expansion Redux, OPT Legacy and DMagic Orbital Science.

    Today, I landed on Moho for the first time.

    @Starslinger999, at least yours can be sent into space in a single launch. Mine... not so much. It has only one free attachment node along its keel*: at the top of the command module. launching my monstrosity upside down will need some insane amounts of BOOSTERS to achieve victory of thrust over aerodynamics. * This ship has a modded Daedalus engine, which - while very efficient - is heavy (36tons, reactor needed to run it not included), unaerodynamic, useless in atmosphere and has only one attachment point. Getting that thing into space required me to build a crazy contraption of an upside-down rocket that would've fallen apart if not for a generous application of ducttape struts. P.S. It was actually seeing your ship that inspired me to finish mine
