  1. Fingers crossed Minmus is still smooth and shiny Maybe some craters But I want to see those sparkly slopes and glassy flats in HD.
  2. TBH, I've imagined it working with a system, where time, timewarp, and so on is local to the player. This would lead to weird effects from the view of a non warping player as another player's vessel would appear to take a path through the solar system which isn't physically possible, or be able to warp to catch up to another player's orbiting ship. But it eliminates all sorts of other issues. No need to worry about what happened before what, as all players operate on real life time, not in game time. Plus, no risk of one player's time warp messing up another's plans. When a player i
  3. Glitch based acceleration and save manipulation have seen people go crazy far out even in KSP1, resulting in glitchiness, so I suspect the same will be the case here.
  4. Been some time since we could last make a working one of these. Who remembers? Infinigliders. Check out that guy at the back. No hemet. Fearless. They look quite cool in modern parts. More people should try this before it is re-patched
  5. Hear me out: Infiniglide should have returned for April Fools day

  6. One of the great things about Kerbal is how free you are to shape your own story. Maybe a few very simple things, like kerbals cheering when you land, or launch something of a certain size for the first time maybe, but that could also end up distracting, and take away from your own feeling of having achieved it. It's more real when you just watch what happens. I wouldn't say no to a procedurally generated news paper pop up listing your recent accomplishments, especially if that also gave you some sort of payout for what you had accomplished in the past munth or year or whatever...
  7. I'm hoping for a video version with the sound in it
  8. I was inspired to film a reenactment of the landing with my drone. Thought you guys might enjoy it. I had to simplify a few things to keep it light and not too difficult to achieve. This is my tribute to the new rover
  9. They bring a lot of life to the game. One aspect I think that has been underutilized is the fact that you're playing as an alien race, not humans. Not that I think they should have fully developed history and Lore, just that the game should focus on engineering and science, and have it's aesthetic reflect that, rather than copying humanity's spaceship parts. I like that they are a blank slate to imagine on - and that's a big part of the fun. You're not just exploring planets, you're helping these guys get to the planets, and set up space stuff for them. There's something great about just
  10. On a trip down to the south coast, I brought my telescope. It's a beat up old cheap one i got of the internet, which I fixed up at home, a week before. Most nights were cloudy, but Jeb was still enthusiastic. I didn't tell him it was just a hall light he was looking at. When the clouds finally cleared one night, we headed out to set up. Collimation seemed fine, and didn't take long to get a small scope like this ready to use The sky darkened, and we saw lots of stars I saw Mars, some clusters, and a few other things. It's a bit wobbly this old telescope, bu
  11. No, this would weaken the game, Kerbal should not make itself an unimaginative copy of Earth's history. You have the freedom to approach the journey to space in many different ways, there's no need to arbitrarily tie it to what happened here on Earth. Infact, I think they should deliberately try to distance themselves from it more, and avoid too much references to human space programs beyond what would come naturally due to the way rockets work. Plus, I like the thought of it being a global, united effort to get to space, above petty squabbles. By not including stuff, they leave room
  12. Interesting idea, so, it can't be an obvious deathtrap, can't use same method twice, and can't have multiple kerbals in one vehicle? Sounds like it would take a while, what are your rules around timing?
  13. Huh. This must be why they are suddenly a different blue now.
  14. I've headcannoned that they actually live for thousands of years, so 50 years stuck in space is only a moderate setback for one of them
  15. Minmus looks pretty good, but I would like it to be more smooth and slopey. Those smooth hills are a key part of it's character. I think it having some craters is a good idea though, especially if they are making the planets bigger.
