  1. Hey guys, uhm... Picture as following. Anyone ideas how to get rid of that mess? I maybe was a little bit lazy while testing... https://imgur.com/a/CMYIb4V Greetings!
  2. Well... So far I imagined our universe like following: As the center of the observable universe we see that everything expands away from us. Okay. But what if some objects are just expanding faster from "point zero" and other objects slower. And these objects that expand slower seem to expand away from us - But the don't do that at all. They just expand with a lower speed than we do from point zero. So they're moving away from us not because they're technically speeding away, but we do. Is that understandable in any shape or form what I'm writing down here? Sorry if the explanation sucks, I'm no native english speaker. If anything is a confusing please tell me so I maybe can make it clearer... Greetings and thanks for the thought experiment so far.
  3. Hey folks, well. The title speaks kind of for itself: We all know that speed is relative to any reference point we measure it. But it there a reference point for every object in the universe? The universe expands. Every object orbits anything else. But every object also moves away from one point. I'm aware of the little point in which the big bang happened. But it this maybe the reference point I'm asking for? And where the hell is that thing? There has to be 1 single object or place everything has a relative speed to. Which is it and where? Greetings Ariggeldiggel
  4. Okay, the file editor is just insane. I was stupid enough to oversee the warning that pops out if something is completely wrong in my save file and so I was searching for a solution on my own. But a simple click on "fix error" does the job just fine. Thank you very much! Problem solved. @18Watt I'm using the latest version, I don't now the version number by heart. It's assembled in space and all four docking ports are used and have to be undocked single handedly. Greetings!
  5. Thank you very much for that editor, it's working great. But my big question now is, what to do. I was able to identify my vessel and the ports that are bug inflicted. Firstly I tried to delete the DOCKEDVESSEL node from the single one connected port and changed it state to Disengage. But it was still connected. Then I went the other way and just added every disengaged docking port the DOCKEDVESSEL node and changed their state to Docked (dockee), but they weren't able to undock. Soooo.. What am I missing here?
  6. Hey community, I've a problem with some docking ports. At the moment I'm building a mining device in the orbit of kerbit. To make the connections strong I've started replacing the single docking ports with a quadruple system. After detaching, modifying and reattaching I realized: Damnit. It's rotation angle is wrong. So I wanted to undock the 4-docking-part-connection, fix the rotation and re-dock it again. But after undocking the first three ports, I can't undock the fourth one. What am I doing wrong? On the picture below the left side represents the lower 4 ports, the right side represents the upper 4 ports of the connection. https://imgur.com/a/zzUiMFt And yes. I'm still building "go big or go home". Relate (To this quote): Greetings!
  7. Because some guys wanted to see the thing on my mun: https://imgur.com/a/hCoNmci Trüffelschwein 5 meets Trüffelschwein 4. Okay, I lost 2 tires due to a hard landing with around 10m/s but hey! It's on the surface and ready for mining. I had watched this but somehow it couldn't help me
  8. Hey guys, many of you are talking about how big my rockets are - But how on earth should I get a mining machine up to mun without building big enough?^^ I tried to use smaller tanks and smaller engines, but there I get to 1500m/s DeltaV and around ~0.2 TWR . That will never ever get to orbit .
  9. And there we got to the mun with that damn thing! https://imgur.com/a/uxd9sLX Thanks again everybody for your help and advices!
  10. Well. I finally know my problems thanks to you guys. https://imgur.com/a/z8wnl2e 1. I went for a lower TWR, because of youtube videos where ppl told about "At least above 1 and between 1.10 and 1.20 is fine". Well. Not for these situations I guess. So problem 1: Higher TWR 2. I started to turn the rocket since I started playing the game. Before it was like: Straight up until apoapsis ~100km and then turn. Now I went: get 100m/s, turn (no matter how high I am) to 27,5°. Then after reaching 150m/s to 200m/s turn to 90°. Usually I was about 4-5km height there. That was waaay too early for that payload I guess. Yes I turn it always on. But yeah, you're correct. Read 2) above ------------------------------------------------------------ This is, what I was doing: You're allowed and invited to laugh^^ The result of watching some guides and thinking "Oh! That could be more efficient!" eventhough one was doing everything correct before and changing it caused the whole problem now...
  11. Oh lord... I wish I was able to even come to the point where I decouple the tanks mate^^.. I only come to 4-5km height and that's it...
  12. Well. I tried to pull it. Not-So-Fun-Fact: It flips: https://imgur.com/a/LJ0N0rr
  13. Well, you surely can say if I've done something terribly wrong, I've no doubt I did mess up a ton of stuff. The position of the reaction weels.. To be honest? It's random. I just put them here and there to make sure it's distributed very evenly. Why? Because I thought it was best if the power of turning is distributed quite well. If that's wrong, it's wrong and I've to change it. I chose a TWR between 1.00 and 1.10, because I thought "You need 1 to get off the ground, the rest is wasted power and is invested better in more Delta V by more fuel" Why? Because I always have a fuel problem. Usually I start the rocket and never turn it until I reach the apoapsis. So I give full throttle, wait for the apoapsis to get to 100km and set a maneuver for creating an orbit. After that I start throttle with focus on the maneuver node at T - throttletime/2. Three days ago I started to turn the rocket while starting to the 45°. How I do it? Completely intuitive and I guess completely wrong.
  14. Well.. No.. The rule I followed was "Oh. Yes. That looks about right. Let's try it!" The last 70 hours this worked perfectly and all was fun. But this now is.. Well. Yeah.. Not at all.
  15. Doesn't work. It flips like there's no tomorrow. https://imgur.com/a/OdMjMqq
  16. I already landed on the mun several times. It's not about landing on that thing, it's about installing a mineral-, fuel- and ore station. If it was landing about the moon I would not build that big. So like this? https://imgur.com/a/ubQmQCP If I put them further down the center of lift will be at the rockets feet
  17. Okay, now I'm really sad. I bit the bullet and built it way, way smaller. The end? It does the same. Flips to west, when I turn to east. No matter what I do...... https://imgur.com/a/jKzDFHe I removed the spotlights, so it should work for you now: https://1drv.ms/u/s!AhlFszFINTbFcFvzXUTIexezecE?e=EBb7C7
  18. I don't use any mods. I just have 1 dlc, it's the making history expansion. Maybe because of that?
  19. Okay, i read it wrong. It's 1.577 tons, not 1.577.000 tons. The comma/point problem, sorry about that^^ Well. This big stuff worked to get up there... It's not even the biggest object flowing around in my orbits. I already did everything with smaller rockets. I landed on the moon with a small rocket about 20 to 30 hours after buying the game. Now I just wanted to start building an infrastructure - Research stations and fuel stations around kerbit and mun as well as satellites. Kerbit already got a research and fuel station, kerbit and mun have each 2 satellites and the mun got a station that combines research and fuel. Only thing is missing is a mining spot on the mun aswell as a real mun base. That's my kerbit research station for example: https://imgur.com/a/HSeNWBY That was a good sequence of coupling trainings. With some fails and so on it took me around 15 couple processes to build it together in space. After that I saw somebody on youtube who shot a whole station up in space and thought "Wanna do that to". After that the mun station was created that you can see above.
  20. The biggest joke: I can't manage to get this little mining thing up over 20km. But this monument I managed to put into the moons orbit: https://imgur.com/a/9VBr3qy I don't know what's going on there. And this ways around 2.000.0000 tons... So what you're telling me is, that it's not only the center of lift that matters but also where the wings are placed? So if the center of lift is optimal it doesn't mean the aerodynamics are optimal? What I don't understand is, if thaT's the case: Why does it flip with a good COL and also an aerodynamic hull around the payload?
  21. Here you go: https://1drv.ms/u/s!AhlFszFINTbFb4fdyoV0HOi3YoU?e=c07GZI The craft file should be in there
  22. Hey, yeah but I've reached a point where it's enough for me. Enough fails and enough "doesn't work". It's a point where it starts to work or I'm done with it. After so many hours with not a single success it's not a question for "When will it work?". The point is reached, where the success, if it comes, can't become even close satisfying enough, that all that frustration and anger feels worth it. Now it's just kind of "reach the goal so it's fulfilled". And it does not feel reachable to be honest. I'm sitting on this, let's be honest quite simpe an primitive, project since over 30 hours now. Of course! But.. How can I do that?^^
  23. Hey the fuel lines go from the outer tanks to the central tank, so that if the two outer one are empty I throw them off. It's on both sides. The rocket always flips up to the western side, while I go for the east side. It would be great to just get above 15km but that's the maximum I can reach. Everything else should work after that...
  24. PS: Here also a picture of Trüffelschwein 5 in the previous version. I put the aerodynamic spot right unter the mass spot. It flips, no matter what. https://imgur.com/a/voGxpBe
  25. Hey guys, first of all I want to say sorry for my temper. Usually I'm way more relaxed, but this game has the perfect potential to let me freak out. After some time working and having distance to the topic I managed to calm down. Maybe it's the german genes, who knows? Thank you very much. I'll post the pictures of my "rockets" afterwards. I've to admit that it's a good feeling to be succesful. The first launch, the first not-exploding rocket, the first time getting into an orbit, the first coupling and also the first moon landing. But after that 1 minute of joy there always without any kind of exception follow hours of frustration. Often enough about not being able even to repeat what was reached before. I already read a ton of information in the KSP Wiki, but unfortunately I'm not able to fix the problems I got with the fuel and my current rocket problem. The more information the better. I already hopped into some astrophysic lecture notes from my old university where I studied (Studied economics but have access to everything here) in order to find something helpful understanding the game: apsis, apoapsis, periapsis, prograde, retrograde, normal, antinormal... - All completely new terms for me. I want to understand everything and not just learn by heart or memorize. But that image you posted is extremeley helpful, thank you very much for that! Hey mate, thank you very much. I already watched about 20 to 30 videos from different creators. Unfortunately nobody could help me with this particular problem. Also watched almost the whole guide series from Mike Aben. Here the pictures of the remaining rockets. I already deleted the complete failures, so that is the rest: https://imgur.com/a/vUP688d Trüffelschwein 1: Not enough fuel, doesn't flip https://imgur.com/a/fF44XP6 Trüffelschwein 2: Not enough fuel, flips when steering before leaving the atmosphre https://imgur.com/a/g42AhxO Trüffelschwein 3: Not enough fuel and flips, because of no aerodynamic wings https://imgur.com/a/GiIepRh Trüffelschwein 4: Works fine, was even landed on the moon until I realized the payload has the wrong containers to save the mined ore (Extremely frustrating...) https://imgur.com/a/Ge9WQ2Y Trüffelschwein 5: Flips and brings me to enrage... Thanks for your replies.. Greetings
