  1. Hang on, you have had the game 1 day and your building that!! Bravo, it took me a week to learn that pressing T helps an awful lot.
  2. Edit the original post and change the prefix, i think you may need to "go advanced"
  3. well, it was a moment of weakness whilst in PC world,. I agree the video card isnt top of the range but hey, its a major step up form my onboard Intel HD3000. I paid just over a grand for it.
  4. Hello, I have recently built a B9 craft using its Large 8m cargo bay, I did manage to attached a payload inside is using a radial decoupler, however it was very difficult. If i place the decoupler in the bay first, then i couldnt attach my payload., i had to build the payload and decoupler on a separate sacrificial external beam and then transfer the whole assembly into the bay. This seems like a hard work for such a simple task. Do you guys have any tips for mounting payloads in the Cargo bays of the B9 mod?
  5. would it not have moved from the 90* position and be directly in my path by the time i reach it?
  6. Everything is between 80 and 100 for me, that way i need less fuel or seperatrons for a de-orbit burn.
  7. Hi, is there a known time to launch a mission to the Mun without getting into Orbit First? I mean launching straight upwards untill a Mun encounter is achieved. What position should the Mun be in, in relation to the Launch site?
  8. I currently work as a quality Inspector for Airbus, moving into Inspection after 8 years of Engineering. Specialising in Composites.
  9. Just a thought, with no air to record speed, how does a space craft know how fast it is going? Does it rely on radar echos from celestial bodies? does it Triangulate is position / speed with known positions of the Planets etc etc? or is there a GPS system that can work in space as it does on the ground?
  10. Thanks, Thing is, Ive played Far Cry 3, Tomb Raider, Battlefield 3, Skyrim and Crysis on my XB360 so i dont want to be re-paying for them on the PC. Ill definatley be buying GTA5 and Elder Scrolls online for the PC
  11. haha, If it blows up, HP will have a nasty phone call heading their way, ill also blame you Monkeh!! Im at work at the moment, but I tried Blackops on it last night, it looks awesome at full max settings. Ive left Steam downloading KSP, MW2, Limbo, FTL, Train Sim 2013 and Halflife 2 Episode 2. (most of the newer games on on my Xbox) Im waiting for a game in a Steam sale or offer that can show off the capabilitys of my new Toy.
  12. Hey guys, Ive just bought a new PC. Processor Intel® Core™ i7-4770 processor (8 x 3.4 GHz, 8 MB cache) Operating system Windows 8 2 TB SATA, 7200 rpm 16 GB DDR3 RAM NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 with 1.5 GB GDDR5 Intel Z87 MOBO Optical drive DVD writer 15-in-1 memory card reader TV output HDMI x 1 Expansion card slot - PCIe x 1 - PCIe (x16) x 1 Beats Audio Console High Definition Audio 7.1 Cant wait to run KSP on max settings at 1920 x 1080 tonight. Bit of a step up from my laptop what do you guys think?, im hoping to get at least 2 years out of it before needing to upgrade,
  13. No such thing as failure in KSP, Just Success sprinkled with Pain.
  14. First of all, Thank you for replying in a respectful and constructive manor. I think my definition of an elitist, may differ from yours. Let me explain my first comment. I have a great deal of respect for the number of people on these forums that are able to carry out rather complex calculations. I find it mind boggling when i read some of the equations that people post on here, that level of Physics and mathematics knowledge is beyond me. I am in no way criticising people who choose to play the game this way, for a couple of reasons. 1: It is up to the individual how they play the game, there is no right and wrong way. 2: If I had that level of mathematics skill, I would probably do the same. My problem is with people that choose to use there Maths and Physics skill to enjoy the game, belittling those who choose to let MechJeb do the work for them, stating quite openly in some cases that any achievement that is done with the use of Mechjeb is invalid. In reply to your comment of the Music industry, i believe this is a case were Elitism is a given aspect of the industry. Being born in the 70s, i find myself hating more and more modern music, and leaning towards the "Proper" Musicians. I'd listen to artists like Queen, ACDC, Dire Straits, Pink Floyd, Elton John, Micheal Jackson all day over today’s tripe (Justin Bieber, Nikki Minage, One direction who use a music industry version of Mechjeb) I hope this clears my statement up somewhat.
