    Updated Terms Notice & Privacy Policy

    But what, exactly, does it have to send? It doesn't know your credit card number, name, address, phone number, job, facebook account names, mailbox, contacts, etc. It doesn't even know whether it's legit or pirated. It's got nothing.

    Updated Terms Notice & Privacy Policy

    There's about 40 pages more explaining why if you're really curious. Bottom line, the game as downloaded never asks for your credit card and still works if you unplug your network cord, it can't possibly be watching anything or stealing anything. Let me know if that ever changes.

    What did you do in KSP today?

    Today I decided to stop farting around and begin a serious, real mission. Not grinding any more for tech, going to Duna without it, no nukes, no ions, and bringing every instrument, lab, and crew specialty with me while providing lavish return accommodations for three. ...something exploded on the way up but whatever it was wasn't important enough to be noticed in its absence yet. I *DID* forget a survey scanner, just plumb forgot, but I've got time to add one as everything's rendezvousing at Minmus anyway. To pick up fuel, of course.

    Courage and Stupidity

    I don't know, I suspect it comes in at least a little bit. I've noticed some kerbals are *MUCH* better at EVA than others.

    Doomed to failure

    I've had a part I needed to grapple fall straight through the mun. Nothing to do but cancel and take the hit. You can't win them all.

    Talk, lanky... and landable???

    A good reaction wheel will also help a lot. Really though, you're taking the path of maximum resistance. It's not unreasonable for a top heavy lander to be unstable. Building wider, or just smaller in general, will make it more stable.

    how can I make a shipwreck?

    Take a ship, and hit it with something at 300m/s. Take the biggest piece that remains. That's your shipwreck.

    What is your most facepalm-worthy moment regarding KSP?

    Had a long string of errors recently. Cut a little too close to the mun trying to make rendezvous. SMACK. Luckily unmanned. Cut just a little too close to the station trying to make rendezvous. SMACK, lost an engine. (Sensing a pattern?) Had to power up the lander's teeny spark engine to move my tourists the rest of the way. My entire sausage fest of eco-sensitive self-landing fuel tanks arrived in Minmus orbit empty! I'll have to send my miner up to rescue them.
  9. You can adjust the burn rate of solid engines in the VAB.

    "Interesting" new re-entry effects

    All the oldest engines are basically unmoddable. They need to be rebuilt from the bottom up.

    any cool things to do in ksp no mods

    The contract system lacks imagination as it's a machine and cannot lead you towards complicated long term goals. You're free to make your own. How about, build a fuel depot orbiting minmus and a surface miner to serve it. Attempt a double-capture of an asteroid - first into wide Kerbin orbit then wide Munar orbit by finessing it into munar intercepts. Clean up your own space debris in as amusing a manner as you can contrive. etc.

    And Then It Just Clicked...

    Difference between orbit mode and surface mode. Which wasn't so much "click" as "impact".

    What is your worst successful launch?

    Around here that's normal launch procedure until I get enough tech for the long-reach decouplers.

    High G tourists!?!?

    The contract didn't void itself, but didn't complete either. They work for other people though, so I guess just a glitch.
