  1. Yea those cartridges (from the old days) had a 3 volt watch like battery soldered on the board. This was done alot because the ROM inside could not keep game scores and such. I have replaced a few of them for my daughter but you have to open the case and know how to use a soldering iron. They still can be found on evilbay for a few bucks but it will take some work to get them back to life.
  2. Went for walk today and met basic human nature that made me chuckle. Well let me back up a few days though to understand this. I have been walking everyday since this virus started. Safe, quiet and not too many people around. To my amazement, some people on the narrow sidewalks do not take a 6 foot circled turn on the grass when they go by you. They don't get it. Most of the time I have to do this myself to keep us both safe. Our state recently decided to recommend that we wear masks now. This is to be on the safe side before the peak hits very soon with the important pharmacy and grocery
  3. Welcome to the KSP forum @truckmen Wow every one up above that left comments are so correct. Man I have learned so much about space flight due to ksp its amazing.

  6. Last night I got my 1st contract to find an area on a Minmus location and do some science on it. It was funny tho to actually stand right next to the location within a meter, so I put up a flag anyways marking the location as a first. Got back to KSC with some awesome science credits, wooot!
  7. Never clicked a like for this silly image! So glad I try to keep up with the times ksp wise, but good try on that funny day.
  8. Really tho, all of us KSP adventurers are of the right stuff!
  9. I finally got BDB's awesome Saturn V working really nice on my JNSQ install and made it to the Mun. Even landed the LM on it too. (well in my day it was the L.E.M as Jethro Tull so sings about it on the Benefit album, lol) With the sound of a Saturn V and the view of JNSQ quarter scale realism , I felt like I was there.
  10. Well even tho I am still a baby with KSP and I am sure most of you already did this, I finally got BDB's awesome Saturn V working really nice on my JNSQ install and made it to the Mun. Even landed the LM on it too. (well in my day it was the L.E.M as Jethro Tull so sings about it on the Benefit album, lol)
  11. To those that have died with this terrible virus. https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/ I am at the upper age limit to get this. To those of you in a younger generation. Stay home, play KSP and be aware you could bring it to your parents or older folks if you go out.
  12. This really bothers me. It seems someone changed simple aerodynamic parameters to make something else easier or what they thought would be better. This may affect a lot more, especially when your depending on ships that took a long time to develop.
  13. Using fumes to get home from Minmus Ok this mission was crazy. I had more than enough deltas V for this trip to and from Minmus but what I had to do was land on Minmus with a reason of doubt, that I may not return. I knew this in a way but I went for the trip regardless. Two Kerbals went along for the ride. I needed to land on Minmus and do a career test of not only one very large TD-50 decoupler on the planet but its same size big brother, a TD-50 STACK decoupler landed there as well! Yes... two very large explosive big boys. Why?? Over a half a million kerbucks were on the line an
  14. Last night I took a somewhat close picture of the full moon near my house. It was am OK image with my very very old camcorder. Not bad and a bit better than my new cell phone.
  15. when I saw this the first thing I thought of was Val saying to herself, "Just think like Chuck Yeager and the X1 will fly just great" lol
  16. I am very new here but as I watch this really cool thread that has been going on for a while, and awesome names of so many locations have been given, is there a map of these great finds that have been made yet. It would be very cool to have one on an image to look at and go there. Thanks for reading.
  17. Welcome to the KSP forum @WolffXIII Wow I see you have played alot of this awesome sim! New here myself since the end of last year, but yea so much fun with KSP and this forum. Great to have you here!
  18. Needed to bring two Kerbals to the Mun. So glad to land here every-time. I think Jeb always looks at these landing through Neil Armstrong's eyes. I know I do. Nellrie and Jorlas Kerman had an awesome time too. The science here is great! Found a small crater near-bye as well Now, take off to get back to Kerbin, Job done. (1.9.1, Making History, Breaking Ground, a few basic mods)
  19. An easy career contract to bring a Nerv Atomic engine for a suborbital trajectory around Minmus. No need to land it but I brought the lander as well being that Doctor's Basilia engine works so well for these missions and the lander is apart of it. Not much more in cost due to the amount of fuel needed to get here as well. Its shape was superb for this mission too. Also had to bring, not one, but two large Decouplers as well. The TD-37's. Thats why I talked about shape of the Basilia starship. Its really good for low heavy weight objects. It's so funny to get the same task in one career a
  20. Welcome to the KSP forum @Etherian Space ProgramNew here myself since the end of last year, but yea so much fun with KSP and this forum. Try looking at few youtubes as well. They helped me alot as well as this awesome forum. Search for Scott Manley or Mike Aben. Those two are really into to ksp stuff and even into real rocketry itself. Have fun!
