  1. The reason for jimmy's answer is that while in atmosphere parts which leave simulation distance from the ship you are flying will be automatically deleted by the game. Also, parts which get within a certain radius of a planet or moon will be auto deleted. You would need game mods to get around these problems.
  2. No need to apologize. We're just keeping things tidy.
  3. This discussion of add-ons has been moved to Add-on Discussions. Also, welcome to the forum.
  4. Thread moved to Gameplay Questions since it is seeking help rather than offering it.
  5. No matter which side you're on, please don't bring up national rivalries here on our friendly little space game forum.
  6. Once again, keep it on topic, please. More content removed.
  7. "Odyssey" is aptly named. I hope it takes less than 10 years and you don't get turned into a pig.
  8. A fair amount of off-topic stuff has been trimmed from this thread. Please stick to science matters.
  9. There was a glitch for a while. It got fixed.
  10. Make sure the plane is balanced to come down through atmo belly-first. This increases drag and thus braking, but also distributes the heat over more parts.
  11. These markers have, unfortunately, always had a habit of appearing and disappearing. I have no idea what, but for some reason it's a thing they've never been able to fix.
  12. A fuel/air explosive does not bring its own air with it. It sprays the fuel into existing air as a mist and then ignites it. Where there is no air the fuel will not burn, so no matter how powerful or efficient you made this it would still only work for the first couple of minutes of a flight and after that the air gets too thin and you need a different kind of propulsion. And that is really not very useful, as you can see for yourself by trying to make a KSP rocket with jet engines as a first stage. (I imagine everybody as done this at one point or another. ) It sounds great on paper but you quickly reach an altitude where the jets stop working and you need to eject them as dead weight. So considering how little of the flight uses the jet engines, you might as well save yourself the trouble and just go with a conventional rocket for your first stage. Real rockets would suffer from much the same problem.
  13. You don't need to install anything for Imgur. Just upload a screenshot to their site and copy the link they provide into your post.
  14. I'm sorry I overlooked this question until now, but yes, I suspect the craft is out of power, as Snark says. If you don't have solar panels you might not be able to get control back. However, if the craft is already on a path to enter Kerbin atmo you may be able to save it. Eject the other stages and the capsule should orient itself properly and be able to deploy parachutes during re-entry.
  15. Sorry, I don't understand what you're asking for. Could you clarify?
  16. Were you trying to share a screenshot? Imgur.com is a good hosting site for that sort of thing.
  17. Would you care to clarify your point?
  18. People took it too seriously and feuds got so bad we had to ban some accounts.
  19. We keep this kind of thing in the Challenges sub, and so, moved. While we're here, please remember not to get overly invested in your faction as "roleplaying" has caused no end of trouble on the forum. Well, it did end, I guess. When we banned it. Anyway, you get the idea.
  20. Well, that's an impressive feat.
