  1. Welcome to the KSP forum @sikatdakota Wow 2000 hrs, man thats a lot! New here myself since the end of last year, but yea so much fun with KSP and this forum. Great to have you back!
  2. Welcome to the KSP forum @OKB_Carba New here myself since the end of last year, but yea so much fun with KSP and this forum. Have fun!
  3. Welcome to the KSP forum @Alessndr82465 New here myself since the end of last year, but yea so much fun with KSP and this forum. Have fun!
  4. Thats what I am doing and having the best time ever! To me its almost like real life space research and I can build bigger better rockets and really feel like I am there! JNSQ is so cool. Thank you Galileo team.
  5. Retro's 1st Space-Station Not a bad career assignment. Build a space-station to hold 4 kerbals in space at an altitude less than 250km. (1.8.1, Making History, Breaking Ground, Kerbalism and many mods)
  6. OK this is one of my few posts in this forum topic being that I am still quite new to BDB's awesome rocketry parts as well as KSP itself but I did get a chance to upgrade my ksp 1.8.1 with the new JNSQ mod installed and started fresh. I figured I would use more of these great parts along with it. I did not know however until I got to do some serious career contract stuff in this new install that @CobaltWolf rockets would not only be so much fun but he also has some contracts in it as well. Wow I was so glad to see that. I did about 8 or so of them so far and it is just great to do. I made a quick Mercury-Atlas vehicle (which I have flown a few times with alot of enjoyment for other simpler tasks) but last night I got a contract from Gene Kerman to put on one of BDB's prometheus "Selene" SRB's and get it up to a low height and only a few hundred m/s. I said ok, I have the Atlas for a manned machine, lets try it. Wow that sucker is very big!! So I strapped two of them side by side on that Atlas vehicle with Jeb as a pilot, cut back on the fuel amount and adjusted the thrust limiter of the SRB so I could allow the Atlas engines to guide it slowly up to the required altitude and speed. I thought I would have to do it a couple times but nope got it on the 1st try. Got the command module away from it at at around 57km and came back for a nice landing near KSC in the water. It was kinda goofy though because back in the 60's, these SRB's would have been an amazing addition to our space program but with KSC and Jeb, just another day! Talk about an upgrade tho! LOL!
  7. (1.8.1, Making History, Breaking Ground, JNSQ, some other mods) Took KerbalX out for a spin around my new JNSQ planet pack install. Man what an awesome mod!
  8. Yea I did that as well. I dont like too, its almost cheating in my own game, but in this case I already did this trip, twice as a matter of fact.
  9. Oh cool @BadOaks for mentioning that. I thought at 1st after reading your post that would be it, but no, the "probe" icon was checked. Thank you so much for that reply as well and reading all of my trip to the moon (and back) showing the steps I took to get there rather than assuming anything. After that post, I continued to google search more so about this issue and found that the "SETI Contracts" mod I had installed (even though its listed as OK) which was the task, has not been updated for a very long time. As a matter of fact it seems there are issues with it as well. No problem I removed it and will continue a bit more with stock contracts or ones tested for 1.8.1 only.
  10. (1.8.1, Making History, Breaking Ground, Kerbalism and many mods) OK this really looked like fun but in the end very depressing! I needed to land on the mun, take some samples but only do it with a probe. It did not work when I ended the career task as well, but I did get a bunch of science. Not really used to probes, I just got the only one available in tier level 6 which is the Probodobodyne Stayputnik and got it to the mun for some science with very little issues. It was very hard to fly with out normal controls but I got it there just fine in the end. Here is the contract Off to the moon! Haha I always say that.. to the Mun! Landed just fine but I noticed the part of the contract still has a white vessal info? Also the Mun landing text at the top should be green as well. Hmm not sure whats happening so I went back to Gene Kermans list and its still In-active. Any one else ever come across these types of issues with probes?
  11. I have had it running the past few days with no issues., but with very few mods running. Alot of them have not been updated yet so be careful.
  12. Welcome to the KSP forum @GEPEG_Unconscious even though you have been playing way longer than me. New here myself since the end of last year, but yea so much fun with KSP and this forum.
  13. Welcome to the KSP forum @radicaled New here myself since the end of last year, but yea so much fun with KSP and this forum. As far as the tree is concerned, just balance it the best way you can. I usually do rocket stuff so a nice even balance between engine sizes, tank sizes, how many Kerbans you need to do and so on. I always pick fun stuff to do from the contracts from Gene Kerman and then look at the tree and what I need to accomplish in it. I always take tourism as a plus even though there is no science. It builds up fast for kerbucks, then I always go to parts testing for great science. I hope you have fun.

    Hello!

    Welcome to the KSP forum and Hello @1THC New here myself since the end of last year, but yea so much fun with KSP and this forum. I hope you have fun.
  15. I tried JNSQ for the 1st time last night on 1.8.1 via CKAN. Even tho I am still somewhat new to KSP by about 4 months or so it is just awesome. The planets are just amazing! I tried launching KerbalX as a test and was able to get to Kerbins orbit OK and had just enough fuel to land back just fine. Man this opens a whole new world for me. Even though its a bit harder to get into space than stock, it just seems so much more real to me.
  16. We finally made it to the Mun Well I had to bring two Kerbals to the Mun for just a flyby and an orbit, but everything went so well with my Basilia space craft and I had so much extra fuel, I decided to land on it as well. Valentina had other motives. I have never landed on the Mun before, just alot of times at that very lightweight Minmus, but hey, enuff fuel for the Mun, go down slowly, I would give it a try. If something went wrong or looked bad I could always just give it full throttle up and try to get back home. The contract said to ONLY bring them near the Mun when it was accepted and I just completed it, so what the heck.. Lets try it. Valentina said yea, lets do it. Gilry and Teduki Kerman also agreed. Down we go.... It looked bad at 1st because as I got near the inside of a crater, it went dark and I was crooked, but it landed just fine. Two minutes later the sun rose over the crater and I got out to plant my 1st Flag. Valentina made her 1st landing on the Mun! The other two Kerbals were inside looking out as she planted it. Now back to Kerbin for a warm reception, a parade and a raise from Gene Kerman. Gilry and Teduki Kerman were so happy as well to land with Valentina on the Mun. Gene Kerman took them all out to Disneyland after the parade as a special gift. We all found out afterwards though from Valentina, that Teduki Kerman asked for Gilry's hand in marriage as a Valentines event when they landed on the Mun. That is why Valentina made that special trip. Happy Valentines day everyone!
  17. Welcome to the KSP forum @DrJasonAaronScalmato New here myself since the end of last year, but yea so much fun with KSP and this forum. I hope you have fun.
  18. Welcome to the KSP forum @Satellitefanatic New here myself since the end of last year, but yea so much fun with KSP and this forum. I hope you enjoy the best space simulator program ever!
  19. No problem. One of the many Scifi movies I love. When ever someone thinks about "are robots taking away jobs" yea they are. Its just a few of us that love scifi that have a reason to understand its final outcome. I hope your having fun with KSP. Its a nice break away from current situations.
  20. So true lgg! He was an awesome actor, served on a sub chaser in the US Navy in WWII and made some great movies and someone I always admired. I think we all do. He had a stroke in the late 90's (something I know about) and survived that in an amazing way. And he was Spartacus and could kill nasty robots too! - - - RIP
  21. Oh yes, and these too... Have a nice day and Ill see you at the next checkout counter!
  22. Welcome back to the KSP forum @GroupJW New here myself by a few months. Love KSP, so much fun. Great video btw. Reminded me of some old Looney Tunes roadrunner VS Coyote stuff from back in the day. A true concept I bet of what will be coming to us soon tho, robots replacement will always be a problem, especially at the check out counter at CVS and such.
