  1. The Engineering team over in the SPH have been playing too many video games... they've recently unveiled this thing they call a 'Hornet'. We were of a mind to lambaste them for creating this but it turns out that it's pretty damn fun. The UNSC AV-14 'Hornet' Attack VTOL first appeared in Halo 3, providing a human alternative to the Covenant Banshee. For Kerbal-kind, however, there's no such thing as a Banshee, or the Covenant. There is the Kraken, though that lurks somewhere near Bop so it's a bit out of reach. Quite why they decided to create an attack VTOL is beyond the folks in t
  2. The Starbound mission heads to Pol in the latest exciting episode! Hmm, seems dustier than the last time we were here. My nose is twitching just looking at this place. We need to get an air sample of this stuff, it could spell the end of all Kerbal-kind if we're not careful with it. Meanwhile, back home... S.S. Atlantis preparing for a trip to Duna. Delivering a Dustmaster rover. Landing a Hotdrop outpost. This small base is capable of running for a long, long time... we hope. The Atlantis arrives at Duna.
  3. Thank you This is version 1.7.3 with the following visual mods: EVE with Astronomers Visual Pack Scatterer Planetshine Hope this helps! Now, to remain on topic, a couple of pictures from the first Bop landing of this mission. The crew understood the significance of Bop and its unsettling place in Kerbal history. The Kraken War was fought many decades ago now, yet the tiny asteroid lurking around Jool still seemed as hostile and creepy as back then... They landed in the impact crater, far from where they believed the body of the Kraken itself re
  4. Second Laythe landing as part of the Starbound mission: We're going for this cluster of islands that look like an old crater rim, or possibly an old volcano. We hope it's old (and extinct) anyway... Hmm, I don't know how healthy that water is. Oh sure, go and swim in it Maruki, nothing bad could possibly happen to you whilst taking a dip in slightly purple-tinted alien water. Now that's a pretty sunset. And the sunrise that followed. Is it the purple-tinted alien water making you scream, Maruki? I did warn you.
  5. Slight wall of photos incoming, I can't remember how the spoiler function works in this "new" forum set-up... --- After waiting 'patiently' around Eve for a few years for a refueller to get to them, Jeb immediately set a course for Gilly once the Atlantis was loaded up... He got quite close to the lumpy surface. Closer than the others were comfortable with. Jebediah Kerman: What a guy! Yes, yes, well done Jeb, you landed on Gilly. He does have an artistic side at times, though. Eventually, he decided to return to the ship after m
  6. You know, in all the time I've played KSP, I've only ever had two major missions to Jool and neither of them were to set up a permanent base there. That may finally be about to change. The S.S. Starbound is currently being prepped for the survey and reconnaissance aspect of the mission. Even larger than the Enterprise from my Grand Tour mission, the Starbound will enable exploration of all worlds bar Tylo. The Ranger NX-III, my most successful SSTO spaceplane, will finally be getting the chance to spread its wings at Laythe, and it should be able to stay there for longer
  7. S.S. Libra over Duna. S.S. Atlantis on her first mission. Unfortunately, she ran out of propellant after making orbit, so Jeb and Co. will need to wait for a fuel tanker to be sent out. Radio Telescope on Minmus. Airshuttle on a test flight from KSC to the Desert Airfield.
  8. S.S. Libra heading to Duna to conduct some orbital surveys prior to further missions. Vikos Cairn base now has a comms tower and a rover (which I've already knocked the antenna off...) S.S. Snowdon wrangling an A-class asteroid on its first mission. Moth MkII racing pinnace conducting a Munar scraping manoeuvre on a test run. She flew below 1.5km above the surface and could probably have managed to get closer to the ground had the flyby not been done in the dark.
  9. Just started playing again recently after burning out for a while. Here are some of the things that I've been up to: Cloud Runner heading out for a quick spin. Airwave I relay satellite. Port Illium station, still under construction but it's nearly finished. This is the first time I've used a drone to build something instead of just directly docking modules together with their own RCS. Reduces part count (not that that's too much of a problem for me right now) and it's pretty cool. Small, short-range shuttlecraft inspired by the Knight from The Expan
  10. Battlekerbal 1 (Battlefield 1). Or maybe Kerbal: Isolation (Alien: Isolation).
  11. It's not an actual Starfleet vessel, but the Columbia class draws upon several designs including the Constellation class and the USS Franklin. I've got two ships of the class currently commissioned; the Columbia CMB-107 and the Yelchin CMB-108 (I'd use Starfleet style registries but I want the ships to fit in with my game ) Standard crew complement is 11, though she can fit quite a few more than that if necessary. She's not entirely defenceless either... Despite lacking a warp drive, the ships are otherwise fully functional explorers (I may see if t
  12. It's still a WIP, but the Columbia class is pretty much ready to fly. The ship seen here is just the prototype and she has a fuel flow problem which has since been corrected in the VAB. Quite a reasonably sized ship, and sat somewhere around 500 parts so the framerate isn't appalling! Weapons test on the boosters that carried her up. Looks kinda reminiscent of another ship from this angle, doesn't it?
  13. Need to solve some launch problems before I'll consider this completely finished (read: BOOSTERS WON'T STOP HITTING EACH OTHER), but otherwise the Columbia class is pretty much ready to fly! I did manage to get to space on my last attempt but the boosters didn't like that so they did their usual bumping into each other business and left me on a non-correctable sub-orbital trajectory Definitely not inspired by Star Trek that's for sure. Don't know what you're on about.
  14. edory kerman to me is brave and crazy like jeb So i call him jebs son XD

  15. Crikey, that's an old post to go and quote! Edory Kerman, now that's a name I've not heard in a long time... a long time. I don't recall him being quite so daring though
