  1. It doesn't work by doing that. Chatterer will complain on launch of KSP, and wont load. I expect it's just a config file, but I don't know how to fix that, so as much as I miss hearing chatter, I'm waiting on an update.
  2. I seriously feel like I am going to pass out from being so hyped right now! I'd happily pre-purchase this now!
  3. Yes, it is finally dying....because KSP 2 is coming!!!!
  4. I did this a lot, long ago. Mostly because I had no choice. I set up refuelling stations around every planet (with a few around Jool), back when there was no ISRU in the stock game. I came up with a launch system that got an entire orange tank to Moho (just), and more everywhere else. More recently, I've been far more interested in sending "flatpacked" stations to places, where they get reconfigured at destination, and then using ISRU for filling fuel tanks. All you need is a good probe (I love the round flat ones) with some RCS fuel, thrusters and patience for docking things that are not
  5. Actually, I think it used to be great when it was ASAS. Once they got rid of that, and allowed control while SAS was active, it just got screwed up. I had no problem turning off SAS when I wanted to adjust my course, it just took a little practice, and the occasional fireball of death, but it was solid as a rock. It takes some practice to use, but you can use the retro marker to guide the burns. Since your engines are on the back of the rocket (generally), you need to be pointed in that general direction for slowing down. Other than that, you want the retrograde marker roughly aligned
  6. Signed in just to respond here....been a long time since I signed in on the forums. I'm fairly sure I started on 0.13, but the earliest version I have in my folder is 0.17. I initially bought it for my son, back in 2011 I think or 2010. I ended up playing it more than him. I then ended up buying another copy for myself sometime after that. By the time 1.0 came out, I'd done everything already. I'll probably fire it up again sometime this year.
  7. Not very - it easily fit in the VAB. Maybe 70% of the height. I'd launched it successfully before, and immediately after the explosion. It's the first time I've ever had a craft explode on load, with launch clamps. Had it happen plenty without though.
  8. To be fair, I haven't had issues myself with the docking ports, it's just what I've seen from others. I actually finished the final mission in the DLC the other day using old school landing legs - built from cubic octagonal struts. But they are not retractable, and do look ugly.
  9. I'v just got my mods up to date and was thinking to play a brand new sandbox version and colonize the solar system. Unfortunately, these bugs are going to cause too many headaches...so I'm holding off for now. I've already experienced the landing legs exploding...I know there is a community fix for it, but I've also heard about the docking issues, and the bounding boxes of parts in general. I even had a rocket explode on the launch pad, for no apparent reason...and it was held in place by launch clamps. Couldn't reproduce it, but there is something strange going on...
  10. I did try playing 1.4 on my laptop, which used to do ok with KSP, but I think Windows 10 has killed that. I even tried earlier versions, and no go. In fact, nothing runs well on it anymore...it probably needs a fresh install (or I have an excuse to buy a new laptop). Honestly though, I didn't really want to play too much since I was worn out due to the physical work we were doing...we were building a new carport on the family holiday house. I'm now playing the DLC....I'm enjoying the missions
  11. At least you'll have access to the internet, and can download it. I'm going away for 2 weeks, starting on the 11th, to a place which barely has phone reception, let alone internet..
  12. I did it yesterday, for maybe the 2nd time ever. And it wasn't because I underestimated my delta-v either. I was returning from Minmus, got myself a nice return trajectory, where I'd hit atmosphere and be slowed sufficiently to land. I decided to stage, and let the engine/fuel burn up....however, the force of the separation caused the capsule to have a periapsis of 64km...it would have worked eventually, although more likely than not, I would have encountered the Mun and been in all sorts of trouble, so I got out and pushed.
  13. I've got game burnout. All games. I find myself browsing steam, and adding games to my wishlist, but never buying them. When I do sometimes fire up KSP, I either exit straight away or play it for several hours. The problem I have is I've pretty much done all that can be done in KSP. I'd like some new things to do, but adding planets from say OPM, just adds new destinations, which isn't much harder than current stuff - just need refueling, etc. I too would like to give my Kerbals something to do once they arrive!
  14. I just checked, and it's about 90GB. I didn't even think it would be that much! Most of it is old versions, from 0.17 onwards. I've kept the downloaded zip file plus the full install. Some versions there are multiples for some reason. I probably should just clean up the old installs and keep the zip files, because I doubt I'll ever return to the saves.
  15. In my opinion, they should fix all the bugs and polish the game before they do paid DLC or expansions. The problem is, they keep throwing in new features in each update. Honestly, I'd be completely happy if they fixed bugs and polished existing features and call that complete. But in the current state, it should continue to be the same price.
