  1. Unless you believe that developers shouldn't be paid for their labour, then that argument doesn't follow. The choices here are "Further KSP development is unprofitable and will be shut down" or "People pay for more content for KSP". This isn't bug fixes, or simple QoL additions like a radar altimeter on the UI. This is additional features, which require substantial developer-time to create. Developers need to be paid for their time, or they'll leave your company and go work for somebody who pays better. Paying those developers requires that the work they produce is profitable to the company, which requires that people pay for it.
  2. If you don't think it's worth its price, surely the solution is to just not buy it? You haven't lost anything here.
  3. I've an issue with the nuclear ramjet. If I have any fuel tanks on board whatsoever, even if they're emptied before the flight, then the ramjets will go to liquid fuel mode and can't be changed back to atmospheric. Everything works fine if I just don't have any fuel tanks on board though. Is there something I'm missing?
  4. The challenge is not in powering the thing, it's in programming a microcontroller to switch the coils (of which you should have several, separate) as the projectile passes through the barrel. You want each coil to be on when the projectile is before it and off after the projectile reaches it.
  5. Because it's not a vacuum. The air gets thinner and thinner, and for most purposes it may as well be vacuum, but there's still a lot of molecules up there, waiting for satellites to hit them and slow down.
  6. Why would you use liquid fuel? Most smaller rocket motors run on black powder, and the larger ones tend to be Ammonium Perchlorate composites.
  7. The fact that you all are inconvenienced by this is literally the entire point of a strike. It forces the management (in this case, the Reddit administration) to act. Not only that, but the strike was voted on and supported by the majority of users of the subreddit. The Reddit admins will have been forced to increase communication with the moderators of large subreddits (which was the goal of the strike) and that will improve everything for everybody. If you read the front page of Reddit, you'll see that the admins are already responding and are struggling to bring everything back together. This strike has had an effect. In short, stop complaining. You've been slightly inconvenienced so that the mods of the subreddit can give you better service from this point on.
  8. It's down because the majority of the people on the KSP subreddit voted to have it down as a protest over the firing of Victoria, a Reddit admin who handled AMAs.
  9. Higher altitudes should give fewer points, since they give you far more time to make the dock.
  10. Why is that your opinion?
  11. The first reaction you're talking about is just sweat. Go ahead and drink a large mug of hot tea as fast as you can without burning yourself. When you're done, you'll start feeling cool within a minute or two because you'll be sweating a lot.
  12. I don't think anybody has a problem with more people getting to play KSP. The issue is that nobody can see how the PS4 can handle a game like KSP what with all of its controls and the fact that it stutters even on fairly high-end desktops with enough parts, and they're worried about whether or not the development of the PS4 version is going to hinder the development of the PC version.
  13. Just remember everybody, just because you can't identify something doesn't mean that it's aliens. If you actually see aliens, then you get to tell everybody that you've seen aliens. You don't get to tell everybody that you've seen aliens just because you saw a thing in the sky that you can't tell what it is.
  14. Whether or not Mechjeb is fun for you is dependent on what type of game you think KSP is. If you think it's a game about flying rockets to other planets, then you probably shouldn't use it very much because it'll get rid of a lot of the fun stuff. If you think it's a game about engineering rockets to fly to other planets, then you'll probably find that Mechjeb gets rid of a lot of the boring stuff. I personally prefer the engineering side of the game, so I'll use Mechjeb to avoid having to, for example, turn to a maneuver node and burn, because I think that's boring. Landing, docking and atmospheric flight is actually interesting, though, so I tend to do that on my own.
  15. Being stabbed or shot several times will kill you just as dead as being poisoned, and it'll do it much faster too. There's a reason armies use assault rifles instead of poisoned darts.
  16. In what situation would poisonous fangs be more useful than a gun or a knife?
  17. KIA is a real life acronym used for Killed In Action, with MIA being Missing In Action. The kerbal isn't inactive, he's dead.
  18. There's no reason to believe that removing all humans would cause cockroaches to become extinct. They've survived for an incredibly long time as they are before we existed and to assume that they need us to survive as a species is as arrogant as it is misinformed.
  19. I've never had trouble landing aircraft on the runway. FAR supports spoilers and flaps, use them.
  20. Microsift Security Essentials for passive stuff, the latest version of Malware Bytes for when you think you have malware and want to check.
  21. I can't understand the train of thought that could lead somebody to believe that there isn't a single woman playing a game as well known as this. I mean, I get that there's fewer women who play video games than there are men, but it'd be like wondering if even a single person from, say, Ireland plays KSP. After all, Irish people make up far less of the gaming community than women do.
