  1. You'd think if it 100% was compatible with a modded 1.12 save, it'd not crash when you launch any and all craft with the parts from the mod on them... 0_0
  2. Month later and nothing's happened, tajwo. I think we're all good

  5. Hey y'all, So today I booted up my secondary Windows 7 PC and whatever I do, it just can't seem to connect to the internet. It's old and it doesn't have an integrated WiFi card, so I have to use a dongle to connect. On boot there is nothing out of the ordinary, and when I get to desktop I just get a little X icon in the bottom right, and I'm not connected. No matter what port I connect it to the dongle doesn't work. A spare dongle doesn't work either, but that dongle works on my laptop when I use it. On further inspection the dongle I was using was fried, but the spare still doesn't work at all, no matter what ports I connect it to. I suspect drivers but I'm not sure how to go about doing that. The USB ports are good because I can use USBs and charge my iPhone from them. But the wireless dongles still don't work. Any ideas? I can specify specs of the PC if y'all need them. Thank you in advance.
  6. Interesting point. Quick google and search on Wikipedia turns up nothing. Immna keep looking everywhere I can. Tomorrow. It's 10 o'clock at night where I live RN, so, in the real Gen Z form: Aight, imma head out. Scratch that, this is me 2 minutes later. Google Advanced Search pulled up this with the keywords "JAXA Mars Manned Mission" PowerPoint プレゼンテーション (exploremars.org) Anyone know what this is?
  7. yo this is neat, this is the only thread spacejet hasn't deleted, anyone know what happened to them?

  9. Good evening! (At least, it's evening at the time of writing) After careful consideration, the Board of Directors of the Acorn Aeronautics space and aircraft group would like you to complete a commercial contract on behalf of our company. We would like you to build a large space station in mid Earth orbit capable of deploying smaller asteroid mining craft to fuel both of our companies' endeavors. It has to be able to carry a minimum of 5 10t asteroid mining craft, each with enough Delta V to escape Earth orbit and have plenty to spare to perform course corrections to intercept light to medium asteroids. The design of the craft that it is equipped with is down to you. For a bonus in your paycheck, you can choose to build this station in a position where it can easily get a Moon intercept, as this would serve in our best interests. Another bonus would be getting the space station to be capable of housing at least 5 tourists for extra income! We will pay for 20% of all costs relative to the mission. We will pay you 6 million credits for the space station meeting minimum requirements, an extra 1 million for each bonus. If the contract is not finished 15 years from now, 1 million credits will be subtracted for every 6 months delay. We will use the asteroid mining craft ourselves, but you will receive 25% of all profits generated. We very much hope you shall be interested and hope to hear your reply soon. Yours, Chairman of Acorn Aeronautics, Second Hand Rocket Science
  10. Best one I've seen yet. #saveminecraft I managed to list the wrong sources... Do a little digging for a few minutes and you'll immediately see what I'm talking about.
  11. Player Reporting in Minecraft: Java Edition – Home Addressing Player Reporting Tool | Minecraft Player Chat Reporting Feedback – Minecraft Feedback In-Game Chat Moderation and Reporting : Minecraft (reddit.com) Take a look. Most of these sound reasonable. But this system is just waiting to be abused. Unlike Roblox's reporting system, almost every report is going through and being moderated, ranging from hour bans to permanents. If this wasn't including singleplayer worlds, this wouldn't be an issue... much. But banning you from your own worlds where you can't offend anyone is just extreme. Too extreme.
  12. Y'ello folks, So something a little bit different for today. Recently I caught wind of a group attempting to stop "chat filtering" being implemented into Minecraft Java Edition. On researching this topic I have realized that this is a very important goal. Let's give y'all a rundown! Minecraft, in a nutshell, will make a chat report system that makes it so saying the word "hell" or something alike could get you banned from the entirety of Minecraft. You heard me right. Not just multiplayer and realms. If you get banned, your singleplayer worlds are locked for the duration of the ban. And if it's a permanent ban? The entirety of your Minecraft install is whisked away. This is... Many people have called it the beginning of the end. Microsoft has made the worst decision they possibly could. And the chat report system is flawed, too! Many bugs and even workarounds have been found! Why in Herobrine's name do we need a chat report system for a game where servers moderate themselves! You can't even curse in singleplayer! You can't get banned in singleplayer for cursing alone (obviously) but it's censored. Signs, nametags and the chat are all cursing protected. What the hell, Microsoft?! How can you offend someone when they aren't even there?!?! So, what can we do? Well, you can start by joining their discord server (sorry mods if this is against the rules. we need your help BADLY!). They're currently making a final push to stop them rolling the update out. Here's the link to the event: https://discord.gg/5dXrerpt?event=999798089084850236 And here's their server: https://discord.gg/saveminecraft We need your help now! Do you want your childhood game to die? Fade away? Become a game that's so quote on quote "child friendly" that you can't even say heck? By helping us you are not just helping a mere discord server grow. You are helping save arguably the most famous videogame of all time. Please, spare a few minutes of your time, and repost this everywhere you can. Twitter, Discord servers, whatever. Just spread the word. That's it.

  13. Testing out some concepts. This is the... Helios? Yeah, that sounds good. Launched using the inventively named Citrus Heavy. That might not make sense until you see it. I never took any pictures of the payload on this mission since I didn't realize I would be posting it here. I'll get back to you with the payload in time. Long story short, it didn't work. The xenon engines that I had made... no thrust? Yep. I had a ReStock Ion engine running in underclock - overclock mode (one engine underclocked to produce fuel and electricity, one overlocked to produce loads of thrust). Maybe it's becuase the ion engines weren't stock? I'll test this further soon. But I'm signing off for tonight.
  14. So... this challenge has stagnated. Noooo!!! To try and re-ignite it's daring flame, I'm going to make my own entry! Stay tuned!
  15. I know the M1 chip specs are pretty impressive, but I think that quite a lot of things would chug on integrated graphics. You could argue that you could crank down graphics to the minimum, and that is possible, but builds in excess of 100 parts would probably lag. A lot. On 300+ part ships my RTX 3060 dedicated graphics chugs, so... ;-;
  16. Sooooo... This thread has been inactive since the 2nd... I kinda gave up on this idea. But with fresh enthusiasm I intend to revive this idea! I'm gonna try and re-think the scoop at the front, and try and make it as similar to the one fresh from Orson Scott Card's imagination - or, rather, Aaron Johnston's imagination - maybe made out of fairings? Changing the back end significantly. Since we never actually see an illustration of the back of the Formic ship, I can make my imagination run wild! I'm gonna go for an Aurora-like design (Subnautica crashed ship). I've decided on a name, so here goes: VIS HOMINUM! It translates from Latin to "Force Of Mankind". The lore, if you're wondering, is that mankind after the defeat of the Formics reverse engineered as much of their tech as they could. This included the barely intact hydrogen scoop, engines and oxygen supply (if you're confused about that last one, go read Earth Awakens). They built their own starship close to identical to the Formic ship and designated it the flagship of the International Fleet (again, read Earth Unaware through Earth Awakens). Probably no progress tonight but definitely some tomorrow!
  17. Kerbals definitely don't speak at all. There shouldn't be a Kerbal Voice Volume preset in the settings. That's not possible. Could you say, take a picture of the slider/toggle with a camera on your TV? Then we can see what it is and what you mean.
  18. calling 911 after having an existential crisis concerning the future of the world and if we live in a simulation because of the movie Ready Player One calling 911 to ask the british number for 911 calling 911 because your roomba drove into you and now you live in permanent fear because your roomba is plotting to kill you calling 911 to see if leaking official documents from the MoD is a reasonable thing to do when it will win an online argument calling 911 accidentally because you forgot to check your mobile's staging calling 911 because someone in Portal told you the cake is a lie and now since you have cupcakes in your fridge you are freaking the hell out calling 911 because you think your Atari 2600 is infected with a virus that will teleport you to Jumanji calling 911 after a FNF character dissed you in a rap battle calling 911 because a "slender" on Roblox called you poor
  19. Back in my day, you actually had to eat and drink! You couldn't just insert water and protein packs into the slot on your hip!
