  1. Oh, yes. That looks fantastic. Great effort. Now let us build our own bases and shipyards on planets!
  2. No, I am not. But since they will be there, it would be nice to have them de-specialised My opinion is: Make one arm and integrate TweakScale
  3. I know. But that would require 8 or so parts instead of 1. I always like the non-specialised parts more. They give me flexibility.
  4. First things first: Great stuff. I am so looking forward to the stock robotic parts and more surface features. Even if they look a bit tacked on, I guess this is the start to much more variation. Since so many parts have been retextured, I could imagine the planets/surface textures to be next in line. Regarding one thing about the robotic arms: Too bad these seem to be purpose-bound. I would like them to be just the arm, instrument should be another part you can fix to whatever you want. The arm would be more versatile that way... I don't like specialised parts. KSP is what it is because any part can be used in so many ways. What makes it great is not telling the user what to do with parts, but provoking creativity. Don't get me wrong. I love all the robotics parts and this looks great! But I have so many ideas what to with such an arm if there was no instrument attached to it, but: A KIS/KAS refueling point, or a docking port, or a spot light, a command seat. A grappling hook or magnet (from KIS/KAS again), or a camera from that camera mod. Or attach four of these and attach wheels to have a cart with variable wheelbase base/ground clearence... The measuring instrument would also be cool if you could allow it to be attached to other parts without the arm. So much more potential!
  5. To be honest, the fact you require a written statement for the opt out is really bad policy. And in times, where the actual product, the game, is usually bought online without a physical copy like a CD-ROM or similar, requiring a physical letter is straight ridiculous. I do not consider this respectful behaviour. I like SQUAD, but Take-Two is simply making it as hard as possible to opt out. By the way, I don't think this agrees with European law.
  6. @Lisias: You are absolutely right. Usually Squad tells what is happening. This might really be a NDA thing. Also to people requesting requiring Squad to write daily reports on their progress: What would you really gain? You would wait the same time and make developers write more documentation (which developers seriously hate). That would further eat into their development time. My suggestion is still to chill, and close the tab/window with this discussion. Set yourself a timer and don't check for the update being dropped for the next 12 hours. You will not loose anything, since you are not a professional youtuber, who might be dependent on being the first to report on the update. "What", you say, "but I am a professional youtuber!" No, you are not, or you would simply watch for the "update is out" message and get on with your job. That said, go out now and play some old KSP, so that you can better appreciate the changes when the update drops. Or do something completely different even!
  7. Haha. Oh, come on... Well, I am out of here for now. Have fun waiting pressing. Edit: I have not been too active in this forum for a while, but it was always a good place with friendly people. Sadly it seems to have shifted a bit. Luckily the friendlies are still here. Let's stick together
  8. I do an even more efficient thing. I don't wait for it. I will check in a few days, and if it is not released by then, a few days more. It will be released at some point and then I will download it.
  9. I would suggest: Until it is released. That will be the most effective kind of waiting.
  10. People, while I agree they should not have set a date for release, be glad they caught some stuff before release. And relax a bit, watch a movie or so.
  11. There is a nice mod, called "Athmosphere Autopilot(Fly-by-wire)" which even allows for coordinated turns, which I would gladly fly myself, if keyboard controls would properly make it possible. That mod makes you love flying planes again. I still think this should be stock, though. After all, plane/space plane parts are stock.
  12. Uhm, guys and gals, I seem to remember the Hype Train brakes are self-releasing. Listen.... I think it is already rolling!
