  1. So this is why the orbits in KSP1 look funky and inaccurate. I feel like I've just had some great cosmic truth revealed to me...
  2. Chapter 2 is here! It's a good thing I have a lot of free periods this semester that I can use for writing Chapter Two - Wündertech The admin building’s conference room was packed to the gills with everyone who was anyone at the KSC. Wernher was at the head of the room, scratching out diagrams and equations onto an oft-used chalkboard, while the rest of the crowd milled about impatiently, waiting for whatever mystery event would trigger the beginning of the meeting. Moments later, the double doors at the rear swung open, and six new kerbals entered - two federal agents,
  3. See, I would have done that, except that the Widget is based on the classic FTL Drive Continued mod. If you've never played with it, it's basically a jump drive with some caveats, the first of which is "trying to jump from too far down in a gravity well = being reduced to a cloud of atoms." I'm planning to roll some explanations into the next chapter though. Oh, and I don't even know what T2 stands for, soo Thanks for your help!
  4. That's planned for the next chapter :) As for Barsoom, that's just a cool name/semi-obscure reference. Glad someone else got it though. And whoops, I guess shaped charges *was* wrong after all. Same for that grammar slip up. Off to the edit button I go! Thank you!
  5. Yessir! Although it's really just several pages of bullet points in something resembling chronological order :p
  6. Hey all, I was linked here by steuben, and seeing as I've just finished putting up the first chapter of my story - Network Effect - I figured I'd take the opportunity to ask for some outside opinion on my work! Take your best shot at anything; as I mention in the thread, this is my first serious attempt at a long-form story, and I'm looking to do my very best. Any tips on formatting would also be helpful - I'm not sure how I feel about the way it changes when I translate it from my Google doc to the forum for posting. Thanks!
  7. Glad to see people are enjoying the story! And don't worry, I'll be keeping it coming all the way through to the end - I've got the whole plot outlined Anyways, here's part two of chapter one! Chapter One - Roundup II A few hours later and a ways away, Jebediah “Jeb” Kerman was in the process of getting into a bar fight. He wasn’t exactly sure how it had started; his mind was too addled by drink for that to be possible. All he remembered was his third shot of the night, some snide comments from the kerbal sitting next to him at the bar counter, his vulgar response… and now they were
  8. Alright, here's chapter one - or the first part of it, at any rate! I don't want to try and squeeze too much into these posts, so I'll be chunking up each chapter and posting them in sequence after they're edited. Chapter One - Roundup Things began to move very quickly after that fateful morning test in the R&D facility. While Bill locked down the center and worked tirelessly to quell the confused mob of interns and underlings, Wernher had smashed up through the UKS’s chain of command and gotten his hands on a direct link to President Leon’s office in record time. Leon,
  9. Been working on this one for a while, ever since I got the inspiration from the classic FTL Drive mod. So without further ado, I present: Network Effect Prologue - The Loophole Wernher von Kerman cruised up to the gates of the Kerbal Space Corporation’s launch center in his rickety sedan. The automated security scanner flickered over his car, matched up his access codes, and allowed him through without a word. He let out a barely audible sigh as he swerved into the closest parking spot. His hand hovered over the door handle. Pulling it would mean yet another day of pointles
  10. Ohh okay. Thanks for that, I'd rather not commit blatant infringement.
  11. This is kind of a stupid question, but I really like the tracking station music, and was considering using it in a project of mine since I thought the KSP soundtrack was all Kevin MacLeod royalty-free stuff. Unfortunately, the wiki lists the source of the track in question as "unknown," and Google doesn't turn up anything either. So would any of y'all happen to know the source?
  12. Thank you! I considered it to be an overengineered nuclear brick with boosters strapped to the sides, so it's nice to hear that someone thinks it's cool. If you want to tear it down, I actually just put the latest version up on KerbalX. If you look in the rules there's actually an exception that Sturmhauke added: "If a mission states that you should land and then deploy a payload from the orbiter cargo hold, you may instead perform a low altitude paradrop (or suborbital drop on a vacuum world). This isn't necessarily easier, since now you have to keep two separate craft from experienci
  13. I'm baaaack! I didn't touch KSP for a whole month because I was expecting a new SSD and didn't want to hassle with save backups, but that's all wrapped up and now I've managed to complete MUN STS 2-4, stock Commander! Preview shots: Oh, and by the way, if there's anything I'm including regularly in these albums that you think is redundant/repetitive filler, let me know - I don't want you to have to slog through unnecessarily long albums.
  14. Not sure if this is a bug, but the NERV's particle effects no longer appear. I am using ReStock though.
  15. He may or may not have spent 35 years in that crew cabin while I did an experimental run of the Cassini-Huygens test pilot mission... But it's okay, he's home now, and I'm told that the KSC has hired a battalion of world-class therapists just for him. Also, lots of happy pills.
