  1. KSP Weekly: Longest Stay on the Moon

    Not the first time you've claimed to have been told major scoops by an employee of a company that's been pretty good at playing their hand close until, well, this month. Citation definitely needed. You're operating with hindsight. Which is always 20/20. The folk who had a mess to clean up a year ago and had to get it right the first time didn't have that advantage, so they played it safe.
  2. I'm pretty sure I can count the number of plugin mods that have >0 test coverage on one hand.

    Because you don't switch targets midway.
  4. KSP Weekly: Longest Stay on the Moon

    It's nowhere near that complicated. This release is 1.2.2 because that was the latest when porting work started. Whether work will start on a 1.3.1/1.4 release after this one's out the door remains to be seen, but my money is on yes, targetting a concurrent Making History release.
  5. That mod would be Better Burn Time. If you read through @Snark's comments in that thread, you'll find they have a fair bit to say (as usual ) about the problems with trying to calculate decent burn times, and some speculation on why the game currently behaves the way it does.
  6. Mobile Version of KSP

    KSP forums: There's no way consoles will be able to run the game! Also the KSP forums: Look at all of our justifications for a mobile port!
  7. Custom Control Panel

    I have a sheet of aluminium composite (aluminium bonded to a black core of... PVC, I think). Bought it for an enclosure, as it's lighter and easier to bend and make curved edges than aluminium. But have been wondering about just etching through the top layer for detailing. I think your aluminium panels look great. ABS would be OK for some stuff, but definitely don't replace all of them!
  8. Public interfaces are documented at What? I don't understand anything about this assumption. Why shouldn't they be, and what difference does it make anyway? You may be interested in AmpYear. It's got all sorts of reserve power and emergency shutdown functionality.
  9. KSP Making History

    But it is the only answer we have right now.
  10. Custom Control Panel

    Interesting idea! I'd love to hear how you find that in-game.
  11. Goat

    Check how angry it looks. Sheep are fine, goats are probably plotting to do something terrible to the photographer.
  12. Custom Control Panel

    Those milled panels are gorgeous, nice work! As far as MMjoy goes to, note that it doesn't work on all Arduino-compatible boards. The USB HID emulation it uses requires an Arduino Leonardo or similar, the regular Uno won't work. Have a look at for some confirmed working boards. I used a Mux Shield 2 in an earlier iteration of my controller and it worked pretty well. Very easy to hook up to an Arduino board and start polling switches.
  13. Older versions

    If there was a "now what" you'd be congruous, wouldn't you.
  15. Retro Gaming and Emulators

    Most of the Commander Keen titles are available from Steam for a dollar or two each. These are all the original games bundled with dosbox, and a fairly easy way to get them running without the pain of actually getting dosbox set up yourself.
