  1. A good start would be being named Scott Manley!
  2. Same reason as we land on The Moon, not Moon, it's the official name. (http://www.fromquarkstoquasars.com/the-moons-real-name-and-others-too/) This was the name even when it's appeared that Earth has more than one moon (note capitalisation, or rather lack thereof, for generic moons). So in the Kerbal universe the Mun's name may well be 'The Mun', and so Jeb and co. land on the Mun but can also perform Mun landings. All correct grammatically with the assumption Kerbin's naming conventions mirror Earths Of course it matters not one jot really, anyone of us could happily refer to the Mun as, oh let's be silly, 'Jeff', and that works fine for them. "Kerbin, we have landed on the surface of the Jeff."
  3. Well I have heard about it but not seen its footprints yet
  4. Fair enough, best of luck clearing everything up in 'real life'! - Thank you for all your work on this mod and we shall await your return patiently (hopefully).
  5. I like to think of myself as good but (and it's a biggie) I'm overly cautious. Though the Mun was landed on within hours of its introduction to the game I only landed on Duna for the first time in .22 (both probe and Kerballed). So thanks to my caution and over engineering habits most of the solar system remains unexplored, even by probes! On the upside I've only lost 1 Kerbal in .23 and that was due to pilot error (Note, retracting landing gear with a spaceplane landing on the runway instead of applying the brakes is very, very bad).
  6. IVA works fine by me. Now if could stop the pilots screaming all the time might be good but hey Also I too use the 1.25 port for stuff (usually a LES or life support) while mounting the pod on 2.5m rockets/spaceplanes. Yes I use this pod as a cockpit, gives a handy life boat in space in case of hilarious disaster.
  7. Shuttles are my 'go to' for small payload, crew rotation and resupply missions, so often the core of a large vehicle will be sent up on a standard rocket but then engine pods and other additional parts sent up separately via shuttle or similar. I'm rather a fan of constructing things in LKO so the extra challenge is welcome. Though anything that has to fly in both space and atmosphere, with and without cargo, is a pain to develop once that work is done the design can often tweaked for multiple roles.
  8. This will almost certainly be added to my essential list of mods for .24, sadly rather involved in a Career .23 game to try it yet.
  9. Frankly it's a rare mission were I don't pause and think "Good grief, this is beautiful." I fear much hard drive space has been used on random screenshots!
  10. Simple but very handy! Saves having to find where I left my actual calculator. Have some rep'.
  11. To expand HoneyFox's advice, to easily see parts that have been added to previously researched tech nodes look for a number in a circle on each node on the tech tree. That shows how many parts have yet to be unlocked in that node. Simply select the node and the relevant parts to unlock them. That should stop them being greyed out in the VAB.
  12. Sorry to hear you had a groggy holiday season, I hope you're up to fighting fit with all due speed! The new work looks amazing and the revised Radish is perfect, just perfect (for some reason I tend to like using it for ejectable spaceplane cockpits). And extra mod support, sir you spoil us! Looking forward to seeing it for download when you're happy with it all.
  13. I'm running with FERD, Fuzzy Engineering Rocketry Division. Whereas the pilots have no official motto (screaming being the unofficial one), the ground crew and especially mission control use the one in my sig' below.
  14. Oh this is so handy! Had been meaning to do something myself but you've saved me the effort and done a far better job of it
  15. My only issue with it is that off centre line ladder. I like my Kerbals to be able to climb everywhere on a craft or space station without having to resort to RCS packs and this will only get more important now that pack RCS fuel is limited. Apart from that I like the pod, it has a nice look to it and feels very Apollo-y.
