  4. Welcome to the KSP forum @AnimatedKNew here myself since the end of last year, but yea so much fun with KSP and this forum.  Wow that image of a kerbal is so fantastic, very cool. Even tho must of us put screengrabs and such in here and most of us are not animators, I think your artwork would look great in this place. After all, they are like it says, awesome KSP pictures like the one you showed us.

    I have some more, but they aren't related to space anymore:

    No problems, like I said way at the top of this topic "(as well as aircraft) " so it all really counts for me as well. I always remind people Nasa's second confirmation of things very cool is aeronautics! Like you, I love anything that flies in any sense of the term. Looking at your aircraft list, the SR-71... the best EVER! I think Kelly Johnson was so far ahead of his time.. Man what an awesome engineer and his aircraft as well. The blackbird could outrun a rocket..... so cool, so very cool.


  9. Oh wow, all of those books look just awesome @XB-70A The Energia, the Haynes manuals, all really look great and the Titan II and really all of them. Very very Cool.

    Got me into looking for more stuff in my space related shelves. LOL

    Cool book from 1989 called "Space Diary"

  10. Well just got this awesome book from my daughter for my birthday recently. She knows how much I love the Saturn V and got me the hard bound edition of the "The Saturn V Workshop Manual". Added here as well to the right is the very  old ""The Space Shuttle Operators Manual" in another part of my library I forgot to add into this topic as well. A really nice book that was published way back in 1982. The Saturn V workshop Manual was done recently in 2016. Both of these along with my "The Space Transportation Systems Reference"  seen up above are awesome references for KSP design Ideas.

  11. Sent Val to the dark side of Minmus to do some science and also bring two tourists to land on that cool small satellite as well. Notice her red hair was done just for this photograph. She is also a Star Trek follower and even got her space suit from a Trek convention. She really likes Spock as well as Nasa.

    Welcome to the KSP forum @arthur106. New here myself since the end of last year, but yea so much fun with KSP and this forum. Wow you seem like me! I have always loved rocketry all my life and so cool to see another engineer here

    My advice for coding related stuff is a youtube guy called Mike Aben. A math teacher that does KSP and kos. 

    The best recommendation I have....Have fun!

  15. A trip to Minmus for a contract to plant a flag on it. Did a bit of science as well and got Shannon Kerman here for her science tasks too for another contract. Been here dozens of times in the past few months and I just love this little satellite. Did some improvements on my Basilia starship as well.

    Also over 6 months now since last October for playing KSP with well over 1000 hours... woot!  :0.0:

    Why aren't you using the revamped UA120s? The rust signals they will be removed in the next update.

    Like it visually showed, I had them, used it only for a contract in my game, dont really care afterwards.:/ Whats your point other than an update comment?  Thank you for that as well.  

    Like our topic says "What did you do in KSP today" :wink:


  17. Well still playing around with JNSQ re-imagined quarter scale mod to the KSP solar system and man its alot of fun.

    Put on a massive pair of old rusty boosters attached to this awesome bdb Mercury - Atlas rocket.

    HAHA!! I bet I got a few more orbits more than John Glenn did on MA-6!

    so I don't know why the cartridge still has enough power to keep a save for 10 seconds

    No problem buddy. Yea you got it right, all electronic devices that have a micro-computer chip (or even in the case of the cartridge) its always a cap. Capacitors will hold a charge for about 10 seconds or more, depending on the device and hang on for just that much time. That cap is in the Game boy.

    On another note tho speaking of caps, Its sad that VERY old electronic devices will never finally fail because of something going wrong in a way and not just the battery. One component will always bring them down. Its always the caps that will kill power-supplies, make screens go blank and really most anything else useless. Capacitors dry up after time. It may not be a year or two but it will take a much longer time, maybe a decade or so. Some dont tho but most will.

    So if you have anything that finally just went dead... always know that 9 times out of 10, its a cap that dried up. Whats good is that when it happens, get your soldering skills in use and replace all the electrolytic capacitors on the board and what may happen... it all comes back to life. For just a few bucks and some time, its almost brand new.
