  1. While the Ti drive probably wouldn't cost that much, as most of it would still have to be silicon and copper, the other two might have a shot of reducing your profit margins to unacceptably low levels. I mean, if you are going to start a bespoke software company, you might want to work on reducing your shipping costs...
  2. I just realised something about Bill and Bob.

    This... Thanks... now I can't unsee it.
  3. Eclipse in KSP

    Well played sir! Sigh..... /facepalm
  4. Eclipse in KSP

    Now every time I see one of these threads, I start signing the song in my head.... Turn around.....
  5. Orbiter doesn't use true N-body calculations, it uses truncated versions of it to allow for ease of simulation. Reworking KSP to include even these 'simplified' systems would basically mean making a new game, from almost scratch. If they were to do it, it would be in KSP2, if ever. As buggy as this game can get at times, Imagine if they tried to work it into the game as is. At times of Jool/Kerbol Conjuction, light weight rovers might start lifting off the ground.......
  6. steam contoller for non steam owners

    Isn't the steam controller just a fancy game pad? Why not just get a cheap game pad for use in non steam games?
  7. There's tutorials?? While fixing the bug is an issue that needs addressed, if you have the basics down, go blow something up. Doing is the best way to learn.
  8. Ship shaking

    Are you making a suggestion or asking a question? The canon answer is to use more struts. Try autostrutting some of your heavier parts. Post a pic of your craft, there may an issue with the design.
  9. And while it is advertised on the KSP site, in the parts you quoted, there is no reference to them working strictly on KSP. With their recent acquisition and KSP not requiring a full development team anymore, they may have been given the greenlight to start work on other projects they have been back burnering for a while...... It's more like expansion rather than replacement....
  10. I want to thank Squad for this "easter egg!"

    Very impressive sir. Are the chambers actually under some sort of force (Ie combustion or jets just blowing on them) or what? what drives the engine? I'd really like to see a wki/FAQ/guide on how to use these to create bearing and such....
  11. ANOTHER "cheating" thread? Geesh, cmon people. It's a one player game, you play by the rules you set for yourself. The are no set rules, there are no set objectives. In fact, it's pretty dumb to be calling it a game at all.
  12. MJ doesn't set your orbit per se, you still have to tell it what orbit to take. So if you just tell it to plan an encounter, and after entering the SOI, you just blindly circularize, you can easily end up in a variety of orbits. I usually have to set my inclination, or at least be aware of it, right after entering the SOI. Entering a retrograde orbit is very easy to do with MJ, but it's also very easy to fix.
  13. Is the search being improved?

    I have no idea, but if you google search, and add "" to your search string, google will only return results from these forums. I usually find the google results more accurate and easier to sift through than default forum engine search results. I know a lot of forums that scrap the built in search engines the software comes with and just use a google search bar with "site:" as a default option.
  14. Jumper Cables

    Of course, there's the opposite of this thread:
  15. Where is Akatsuki Lake?

    Well.... I was going to link But..... This thread and the wiki are the only KSP related results, and the wiki doesn't specify... so it might just be a mystery.... good luck grasshopper.
