  1. Considering that the science update will be released 10 months after the initial release of early access, maintaining that same pace for all major roadmap updates would mean that the game will not be compete for about 3.5 more years. I expect that the developers are aiming to complete the game in a much shorter period than this, meaning I expect/hope that the remaining roadmap updates will be released at a more frequent pace (maybe ~every 5 months?) than the time it took for the science update to release. Hopefully lots of the foundational work that was not initially complete has now been done, meaning an increase in the pacing of future updates could be more reasonable? What are your thoughts on this subject? I hope this topic is discussed in one of the yet to be released interviews from space creator.
  2. So is the Mammoth II replacing the original mammoth, or will they exist alongside each other? It would be only slightly disappointing to not be able to create accurate SLS recreations anymore.
  3. I really just hope the word gets out there about this game. Everyone on the forums, and fans of the original are already excited, but I really want KSP2 to have a bigger reach and influence. Obviously this cant happen without advertising, which so far we haven't really seen any of. However, the Intercept Games Twitter account made a post stating they are looking to hire a "Community Marketing Artist" on September 28th. Do you think advertising will start before the early access launch, or instead ramp up in time for the 1.0 release? Both maybe? Kerbal needs recognition!!
  4. What are your opinions on the skybox/background we have been shown so far in many show and tells and feature videos? Personally, I really hope it isn't final. The bluish greenish color looks really ugly to me, and stands out too much. I feel like it distracts from the imagery of the actual planets and vehicles. In the original game, I loved looking at the bright beauty of planets floating in a contrasted black void, which was only slightly spotted with white stars. What do you think? Do you like it? Do you hate it? No opinion? Do you think it's final?
  5. We know about the Daedalus style engine. And from inference we can assume that there will be other interstellar engines in the game than just that one. I wonder if the other interstellar engines will just be slight variations, or differently sized versions of the Daedalus. But I also wonder if there will be entirely different types of interstellar engines, that are completely different, and that use a totally different fuel/ method for moving between stars.
  6. I have edited this post many times. I am struggling. I can only insert an image as a url for some reason, and it won’t accept Imgur urls.
  7. hes on the west coast, why is Nate Simpson reading forums at 2AM? Get some sleep man, its good for you. @Nate Simpson
  8. When you are traveling through the deepest parts of space, lightyears from any stars, is there any real source of light? Besides maybe the light from an engines exhaust, will we really even be able to see our ship as it travels through the black void? Does light ever dissipate through space? or can stars still light you up even when you are incomprehensible distances away from them?
  9. I love this art so much. Especially the brontosaurus-type one. Its so awesome looking, and I love the massive scale of it. If you landed on a planet is KSP and saw that walking around, it would be so magical.
  10. Oh. I thought that he commented that after the dev diary. Sad
  11. I'm really hoping for some news this Friday, given the recent silence. Nate Simpson commented on a forum post regarding this, and said that the silence is due to "their cup running over" and is not a sign of anything bad happening. He also mentioned there will be something "neat" to show us soon. What do you guys think? Any ideas? Speculation is fun.
  12. I'm pretty sure the devs have stated it will be even more modable than the first game
  13. I wonder if Duna will have clouds? Normally I would think no, because there’s no water, but gasses other than water vapor can clump together into clouds, right? Do you think there will be other effects implemented besides clouds such as wind or dust storms? Maybe even thunderstorms on certain planets? It would be interesting to have weather that can damage/effect colonies.
  14. I’m having trouble understanding what the purpose of the new propulsion methods are in KSP 2. From what I can gather, Orion nuclear pulse engines allow you to get to places like Jool in just a few dozen blasts or so, but why is that so much better than just burning methalox for a bit to get there? What is the purpose of metallic hydrogen? Can it burn for a long time? Does it make you accelerate very quickly? If anyone could explain to me since I’m dumb it would be much appreciated.
  15. I wonder if they will add cinematic camera tools into the stock game. I can think of a few other games that have this, so it wouldn't be revolutionary or anything, but never the less cool. Considering how beautiful the graphics are seeming to be, it would be awesome if you could then pair that with awesome camera angles, and make your own little movies if you want. A lot of older game clips from 2019 are labeled as "pre alpha game play", and those clips also feature a lot of spinning, panning, zooming camera angles. This is probably just a dev tool or something, but it may also be a feature.
  16. Does anyone have theories or ideas as to what makes Jool green? what kind of elements or compounds would cause this color?
  17. A lot of people have heard of ksp, but not a lot actually are fans. It’s a relatively small community compared to many other games. I think many people tried the first game but quit early because it was too hard or complicated, thinking “it’s just not for me”. I know the developers are aware of this, hence the fun tutorials, and a lot of what they talked about in the episode 3 features video. But, I hope there will maybe be some better advertising or something later on to actually draw these people in. Someone who tried ksp years ago and got confused and quit probably isn’t going to hear about the sequel, and jump on excitedly because someone told them there are tutorials. I just hope it all gets the recognition it deserves!
  18. I know this happened a while ago, but I never thought about it. I just thought that since basically everyone from star theory moved to the new development studio, that it wouldn’t matter. But I’ve been reading a lot of comments from when this initially happened, and it seems that a lot of people are confident that the game will be ruined completely. What do you guys think? Im still confident It'll be great!
  19. They even confirmed the footprints and tread marks thing?
  20. This seems like a bit of a stretch but I’m curious. If I blow up a rocket on the surface of a planet like Kerbin, will it have any effect on the soil? Like a crater, hole, or mark of any kind? I’m guessing this is wishful thinking, and its totally fine without, but still interesting to think about considering the amount of scientific accuracy and realism the devs are going for. On a less destructive note, I also wonder if there will be footprints and noticeable grooves/indentations from wheels and things that land on the surface of a planet, obviously depending on the terrains material.
  21. A while ago back in April, Intercept games had a lot of job openings for working on KSP 2. Seeing as how those applications are still open on the website, it appears as though the roles have still not been filled. Beat in mind I am very uneducated on this subject and could be completely wrong, but hopefully they have enough people working on the game, and production isn’t slowed.
  22. In the latest KSP 2 feature video, the audio message at the end when decoded, shows a picture of a rocket leaving a system of planets, with an octopus/kraken creature there as well. In a 2019 interview between Shadowzone and Nate Simpson, when asked about the possibility of alien species being in the game, he said he had no comment but “there are some pretty interesting things out there”. My theory is that they will actually add krakens as an alien species from a different star system! It might not be so surprising either considering krakens are essentially cannon, being that there’s a dead on on Bop, and also in this video Thoughts?
