  1. or just burn prograde to accelerate so the orbits are not the same, and make manuever at Ap with which you will encounter the other vessel. on the necounter, just burn retrograde (navbal must be set to "target") until you get 0 velocity. than just slowly approach the vessel with RCS or wthevr.
  2. What i learned is that i overbuild ships. Especially landers, i'm always affraid of running out of fuel, but at the same time i spend it more for overengineering.
  3. Actually, i waited a bit to get better science, to get S3 KS-25 "Vector" Liquid Fuel Engine (i restarted career mode and went from beginning) Now i am able to build smaller rockets with engine plates. But the problem still persists, to get back from MOHO to Kerbin. Does anyone know how much delta V you averagely need to get to MOHO (without braking) and to return from MOHO. I landed on MOHO once, but had to little fuel to get back and Jebediah stayed stuck in Sol orbit.
  4. that is slim for sure. but has no science, it's hard to get off it since EVE has heavy gravity. Do you have version with science, lab.jr. attached maybe? did you land it with fuel? you refuelled? how did it get through entering the atmosphere since is so tall?
  5. This is lander that got me back to orbit and dock with mothership. it has a refueling station attached and some engineering tweeks. it was really painful to succed in EVE landing & return mission As you see, it has landing platform, which was only that had fuel for braking near surface, to make smooth landing.
  6. Well, getting to MOHO isn't that hard, you just have to be precise, i managed to get to moho (without braking to get into orbit) with arround 1500m/s delta v cost. braking there is hard, and it is quite hard to make efficient rocket with number of parts that doesen't make the game laggy. btw, your flying scycraper, how much parts does it have? I have i7, 1060 gtx 6gb, 16gb of ram and flying this would be like watching the slideshow. looks heavy!
  7. Hello, MOHO is last planet i haven't been to. I landed on Eve, and all other bodies. Do you have any lander and mothership suggestions for MOHO? Problem is that you need a lot of delta V just to brake at MOHO which is relatively small planet, to get into orbit. It just takes too much fuel. Any suggestions?
  8. just wait that chutes are fully deployed, than detach it. it will fall down faster than lander.
  9. or just install mod that allows you to teleport vessel. select vessel without kerbal in it, and just spawn it to the same location at altitude 50m it will land gently on the surface with 1.7 m/s
  10. Well, if you have payload module, when you open it it, if the doors are turned towards ground, it actually flips the whole rocket. Try if kerbal can open it while outside caspule.
  11. why don't you build one rocket, add parts in diametral simetry. after that just set the simetry as you wish, and click on rocket. that way rocket will be mirrored simmetry, but parts on it radial.
  12. Well i finally made it. this is the lander https://imgur.com/a/7UelwUW i used mod you see just for testing of the lander. i do not use any mods or whatever otherwise. It is quite harsh to get to and take off from eve, but this lander is actually very stable and aerodynamic. When i returned to orbit i had a lot of fuel left in mothership. Actually i made it to Kerbal with half tank of fuel left.
  13. Quite big. can you show us the mothership? or this one goes all the way back to Kerbin?
  14. So you thnik mining on Eve is the way to go? but that would mean hell of a construction there just to get fuel in some decent time. isn't that even harder to bring to Eve? Or you would do it separately, to land a miner and then lander which refuels on miner?
  15. Hello, well, i have tried a couple of times to land ond eve and return. Thing is that my science level is not high enough to have "dart" liquid engines available, which i saw on all of the Eve lander deigns. Is it possible to make a lander that is capable of leaving the surface of Eve and return to orbit without "dart" engines? Do you have any designs to share, to see the lander and mothershipo capable of reaching, landing on Eve and then return to Kerbal? best regards
