    What did you do in KSP today?

    Today I landed a ISRU /drilling facility, and fuel truck (at the same time) on Asclepius, a planet I built for SSTO's. I used the same tried and true setup that I use for Duna. Link to craft file in Kerbal X if you are curious Everything was working great until I got everything situated, and finally tried to start the drill. "No ground contact". Turns out I had set the drill on my lander about 3 pixels too low.

    Possible Bug? Untagged Biomes

    My thinking is: You might have been right on the boundary of 2 biomes? You can do ALT+F12 in windows to bring up the cheat menu and click "show biomes".
  3. Here it is: Enjoy.
  4. I finally gave in and updated to 1.4.5 I've been fiddling with Kruel trying to get it to work. I don't think I'm going to get it to work the same way I did last time just re-using Ike's textures. So I've decided to just start from (mostly) scratch. So Far: from the ground: I'll have an Asclepius v1.4 for everyone soon™ .

    Probability Puzzle

    It totally depends on which street you walk down.

    A new recruit takes to the skies

    Welcome to the forums! At this rate you should have an SSTO in no time! Protip (that might help): (mod key) + A,W,S,D will set trim. (mod key) + x resets trim. The (mod key) is different depending on what operating system you are using Windows: ⎇ Alt (e. g. ⎇ Alt+L) Mac OS: ⌥ Option (e. g. ⌥ Opt+L) Linux: KSP 1.1+: Right-Shift (e. g. Right-Shift+L) Don't confuse this with Left-Shift, which will fire your engines! KSP 1.0.5 and earlier uses a different key, which can cause issues in some window managers when playing in windowed mode. I hope that helps a bit. Thanks for popping in! It's always good to have another Space-plane engineer around

    I need help modding

    There is a nice write up with pictures here about how to install mods here: And here is a link to CKAN. Auto downloader/installer. It will help by grabbing those pesky dependancies:

    Any Train Simulator/model railroading geeks here?

    I like trains too. I had a HO scale table setup when I was a kid, I never got into making scenes, but I loved switching the tracks around, and making them drive all around the room. I also like the train simming too. I mostly play Open TransportationTycoon Deluxe (OTTD). It's free and open source. I like all the mods for it too I use FIRS mod that adds complexity to the supply chains. I have a map of N. America with a bunch of cities and FIRS industries I can share if anyone is interested.

    Welcome to the MAIN EVENT! Sunday! Sunday! Sunady! Belligerent Bovines Start Your Engines! READY SET GO! And they're off! There was a problem going into turn 2 on the 60th lap, but was quickly cleaned up. Turns out goats aren't very good at refueling stops, so some issues were encountered. Then everyone got tired of racing and decided to stop for lunch. Except for that one goat that was determined to win. No matter the cost. He ended up winning... The grand prize: A Baaaath.

    Zuma Discussion

    Well, it takes weeks to charter a Space X rocket. Given. But the payload could be slapped on top another type of rocket that can be launched at a moments notice (Such as a LGM-30 Miniuteman). Those are quite expensive to launch compared to a "chartered" Space X flight. Would make sense to run tests this way. I ask you to be respectful of my ideas please. Calling them silly does nothing to progress the conversation in a positive manner. Anyways, according to this article It seems to me that it wouldn't be too far flung to think that they may be looking into putting the disarmed missiles to other use. They'd have to "clear the pipes" anyways, and one button press is cheaper (more convenient, and probably safer) than the operations necessary to extract it manually and cart it off to be scuttled or (worst case scenario) redeployed somewhere else. It might give them justification to launch the things off too. Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman and Boeing are competing for the contract.

    Zuma Discussion

    I was thinking about Zuma. Stuff I was thinking: I think that it was probably a test vehicle that was designed to move around a lot. That's probably why you wont find it on Probably re-entered right? Then I started to think about why you would want to launch stuff in a rocket that re-enters (besides a bomb), and I was thinking about how it would be a pretty cool way to quickly put a surveillance drone somewhere _real far_real quick_. Something like this: (that goes to space) This is all just pure conjecture of course.

    A man in a movie theater looks over and sees what looks like a goat sitting next to him. Surprised, the man asked "Excuse me, are you a goat?" "Yes" "What are you doing at the movies?" inquired the man. The goat looked puzzled "Well, I liked the book. It tasted good"

    Going over goat heads is not advisable.
