  1. Hello there. So uhh, suppose this goes here. I've actually been playing KSP since 2014, well, version 0.24 to be exact, so I'm a veteran in a sense. However, I've been kinda on and off with the forum. So yeah, welcome back me if anything. Hope this stay will be permanent though.
  2. I'm sure a ton of people already asked this, but can any of you guys give me a list of a few add-ons that can enhance, yet not completely overhaul Career Mode. Can you pin-point me some mods that don't necessarily add new parts to the game, because i still want to keep it vanilla, but i can make exceptions. I know some of you may argue that stock KSP has been boring for a while now, but hey, there's no "right" or "wrong" way to play KSP, eh?

    Hi! Although this tehnically isn't an introduction, since i just wanted to notify all that i moved my account from the old one: @n00blet21, to this one. But hey! Third times the charm, right?
  4. As things are right now, i see no such thing as "all-stock elitism", and as it is now, it doesn't bother most of the community.If said "all-stock elitists" started bragging about their new accomplishments, it would be kinda tolerable.But, if they started impairing or cyberbullying people who use mods, then we would have a problem.Otherwise, "all-stock elitism", in my opinion, is not a thing. Then again, this a forum, for crying out loud! Reputation points, while yes, are satisfying to gather, it's only virtual and has no real value. By the way, the video @dangerhamster posted above, describes my feelings perfectly.
  5. Took a bit of time myself, and i do have to agree, @5thHorseman and @LN400 were right... @LordFerret that's the first thing that came to my mind when first seeing the question...I wouldn't really get that mad over soup to the point that i have to interrogate people, that's just not me lol... I think @stibbons short summary is also cool... But my biggest props goes to @kerbiloid.Your detective-like, extensive analysis really amazes me, you sir either have a great mind or i'm just asleep half the time...
  6. Hi! I'm getting a new PC next Friday.I assembled my final list of parts.Note that where i live, some parts either aren't available or are overly expensive. Ultimately, i want your opinion on this build and what should be switched out.With that being said, here is my list of parts: CPU: Core i3-6100 - 140$ - Reasoning: I heard this is decent BFTB processor, and looked at reviews.Apparently it packs a decent punch for the price, so why not? Motherboard: ASRock H110M-DGS - 58$ - Reasoning: This is literally the only motherboard that won't get me over budget (4000HRK), so yeah, not much to say here... Memory: G.SKILL Value 1x8GB DDR4 2133MHz - 61$ - Reasoning: For some reason, memory prices have shot up drastically recently, and realistically this was my only option. Storage: 1TB WD Blue 7200RPM - 62$ - Reasoning: Saw a cheaper model somewhere else, but a store near me had it for a slightly higher price, so i decided not to deal with shipping. GPU: Gainward GTX 1050 2GB GDDR5 - 148$ - Reasoning: I saw reviews online.People prefered the 1050 Ti over the 1050, however the 4GB buffer doesn't do much for me since i'm not an avid gamer.Also looked at some benchmarks online, and the FPS difference between the 1050 and 1050 Ti in most games isn't significant enough for me to shed $50 more for the 1050 Ti. Case: CM MasterBox Lite 3 - 44$ - Reasoning: I had a much cheaper mATX case is mind that was also decent, however it was out of stock and this was the next best thing. PSU: Antec VP400PC 400W - 43$ - Reasoning: From what people say online, this PSU is as low-end as you can get while still being trustworthy and decent.It snugly fits my budget and yeah... GRAND TOTAL: 556$ (US) NOTE; ALL PRICES LISTED ARE CONVERTED FROM THE CURRENCY WE USE.
  7. I was searching around and i found this logical question worded in a silly way...however, it's kinda hard (at least for me, don't have an answer yet) to solve, so i wonder what your answers will be? Anyways, it goes a little something like this: ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Someone ate my cabbage soup (sounds a bit silly, but stick with me here). There are four suspects: Steve, James, Dave & Tyler. Each suspect can say two statements about the "crime", a true one and a false one.And so the "interrogation" begins... Steve says: "I didn't eat it. Either it was James or none of us did it." James says: "I didn't eat it either. Tyler did it." Dave says: "Neither did I. James is lying when he said that Tyler ate it." Tyler says: "I only eat meat. If Steve didn't do it, James did it." Now the question remains, who of these four is the mysterious soup thief? ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Please post your answers and the logic behind them! I'm curious...
  8. Ok, what do i want for 1.3? Well, pretty much most of the stuff you guys just said, but mostly: Stock part overhaul Life support Integration of KIS Multiplayer Semi-integration of EVE or SVE (want to keep that cartoony feel)
  9. I think Scott Manley did this a while back and landed od Duna and returned with one orange tank, but since KSP has changed a lot since then, i thinks it's become a lot harder.
  10. Cool cool... I'm thinking Universe Sandbox type of collisions.Both games are made in Unity, so it's entirely possible.
  11. So, i was flying a rocket and noticed that the atmosphere gradient (or the atmosphere itself isn't appearing, it's just pitch plack.Also from map view, Kerbin is covered by pink. I followed and double checked if installed it correctly.Here is the log and screenshots: https://mega.nz/#!woNQwYSD!vNTXIThPemBoGZAK2R_CS9o08ub_C9VYvdnM2cXZP8I
  12. Uhm...sorry to drop in guys if this doesn't fit in this thread but, could anyone check out my first story I posted? I will gladly take criticism and answer any questions went my way.Thanks.Sorry... Please discuss the story on it's own thread...
  13. True, but that name was from a challenge I posted when I first logged into this forum in 2014. Oh, and just the thought of new exciting settlements on Kerbin just keeps fueling my brain with ideas of geographical mods like KerbinCity.
  14. I've personally called it Mount Keverest, but i can take that name. And one thing, i see no darn Kadagascar! Maybe the islands off the coast could be an analog?
  15. BEFORE READING: Please note that my grammar isn't the best, coming from a European, non-English speaking country.This story isn't meant to be realistic in any way, it's speculative fiction! Oh and sorry if the story is too cliché, it is my first writing and i've put effort into it. Quote from Wikipedia: Last thing about the word count: it may be more or less, because the word count in MS Word and some onlines ones showed different results. With that being said, here is my boring ol' story: _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________ PERISHED A SHORT STORY Roughly 20 years ago, the S.E.T.I. Organization started another day, hoping to find extra-terrestrial life.The day was going normally so far, until working hours were over and when the curious astronomers got home.The media started freaking out along with the space community because Pluto had disappeared from Earth's skies.Space agencies pointed the JWST at the position where Pluto was when it disappeared, then they found something very sinister.An unknown, massive, Jupiter-sized object with the density similar to that of the element chromium.People were scared, an the whole scientific world went to sleep that night with a tear in its eyes.Everyone felt sorry for the big-hearted dwarf planet. The night is finally over.The Sun is rising and The Moon is setting.Before the Moon went past the horizon, people observed a purple glow, which turned into a hole/disk soon after that was observable from the surface by the naked eye.Many telescopes around the world pointed their lens at the glow before it vanished.The glow faded away and nothing happened.Scientists rushed to record this anomaly.However, the military were the first to spot something.Right when the glow vanished, they spotted a spacecraft, a very small one by human standards.And it was heading to the surface.Troops were armed, tanks were prepared and missiles were ready to fire.The craft reached the surface and landed near the Washington Monument.The exit hatch was opened and the off ramp was lowered and out came the supposed aliens, although they were a bit different than people thought they were. People expected the aliens to look like something from the movies, but these were quite the opposite.They were around 1 – 1.5ft tall and had very short limbs along with four fingers, implying their home world has higher gravity than Earth.They were able to speak English with the help of some phonetic altering technology they didn't know about at the time.They asked the humans if their system was attacked by 'Furzak The Destroyer'.People didn't know what they were talking about.The friendly aliens came from the Gliese 581 system, planet c to be exact and have mastered all means of interstellar travel.They described this 'Furzak' they were talking about, and there were some uncanny resemblances.A Jupiter-sized mechanical four-fingered claw operated by millions of sentient drones.I just can't imagine the amount of kinetic and mechanical energy required to move something like that around.Einstein and Newton were probably rolling in their graves. Both humans and aliens didn't know Furzak's true purpose, but from the stories they told them, it's only purpose is to wreak havoc on Gods creations.Wether it could be stopped or not was a complete mystery, but they decided not to ramble about it too much.It was time to take action immediately and save themeselves from impending doom. A scenario like in the Independence Day movies was coming true, however, their alien friends decided to help them get away and get as many of them far away from here to another planet of their choice.From that day on, they named their stubby friends the Zanmi people. Planetary evacuation began immediately.Within a matter of hours; trains, planes and ships were overflowing with panicking people, along with traffic jams on motorways hundreds of miles long.Everyone was panicking, yes, but all people were heading to the nearest space centre used by their local space agency.Large SSTOs carrying up to a thousand people flew to 3 secret, large, unfinished but functional colonial ships made by many collaborating governments of the world.From smallest to largest: the Idaltu, Median & Carthage.All together, these ships could hold a Rome's worth of people.It took us about a month or so to load up the ships with people, going slightly over capacity. Back on the surface, their alien friends took of with their small spacecraft and reached the colonial ships.The captain of the ship Carthage gave them their coordinates to one of the best leading candidates for human life: Kepler-62f, 1200ly away in the Constellation of Lyra.They charged a laser based on the cockpit of the craft, then proceeded to beam up a section of empty space.Lo and behold, a purplish disk opened similar to what they saw when the Zanmi first came here.It was a wormhole.The people that made it onto the ships felt sad and heartbroken to see billions of people simply left there on what is going to be just remnants of Earth.Just think of the billions of lives, not just human, but plant and animal ones they were leaving in harms way. The colonial crafts fired up their engines for the first time and headed dead straight into the massive wormhole, large enough to fit all 3 ships, keeping in mind that Carthage, the largest of the spaceships, was twice or three times the size of the Imperial Star Destroyer in Star Wars, making Carthage around 4km in length. Before all 4 ships (including the Zanmi ship) could pass through the wormhole, it appeared, wormholing its way here.Its size was incredible.To put it in a perspective, if the palm of a hand was the claw, the Earth would be the size of a quarter.Thats how big it was.It joined those enormous four claw fingers and turned them into two, grabbing their beloved Earth by its north and south poles, firmly gripping and stopping the rotation of the planet.Buildings were flung east at 465 m/s and all the bodies that were left there, dead or alive, became giant .44 magnum bullets, or Mach 1.366 tumbleweed. It was too late.They weren't able to see the initial destruction and the aftermath.They entered the wormhole emotionally wrecked, all 4.3 million of them on these 3 ships.Before their brains could process the emotional pain, they arrived at their destination, landed in their drop pods, set up base and continued living on this unforgiving, CO2 infested world in sorrow for the next few decades, waiting for the next generation to outgrow them, knowing no world in the universe could replace their beloved and now destroyed Blue Marble. ___________________________________________________________________________________________________ I didn't know wether to put this in the Lounge or the Fan Works, so move if needed!
  16. My changes? Since my coding skills and knowledge is as good as a Mexicans ability to speak Mandarin, i will try my best to make this authentic-looking. I would personally remove space junk: _____________________________________________________ karline = 100km if debris >karline and size >1cm but <10cm then goto destroy destroy debris / 0 _____________________________________________________ Then make Artifexian head of a new worldbuilding alliance: _____________________________________________________ select ytber Artifexian goto ttravel ttravel allileader = true qualified = true timeleap = true tleapamount = 150 lifexpot = true happy = true ___________________________________________________ I'll update this when i think of something else, but this is it for now.
  17. Not only will you get them ready, you will MELT them... Not even traveling at twice the speed of light at 100k time warp won't save you...
  18. More to come friend, more to come, this is just a teaser...
  19. Then it'll be just a regular star i guess...some of this info is simply trivial and optional
  20. Hmmm................................................yup. Didn't think this through, did i?
  21. Boy, did i work my a** off, 1 hour of brainhurt to be exact... https://www.dropbox.com/s/notawm436npbrxc/dokument.rtf?dl=0 Did it scare you? Regardless of your answer, this isn't even a fraction of it... Believe me when i tell you, something is coming... *anticipation builds*
