  1. Any which way you can, there are no rules about slingshots, except that they qualify for a Kosmokerbal Commendation.
  2. AP only, its intended to be a kerbolar system altitude record and it hasn't been achieved by any entries in recent versions to the best of my knowledge.
  3. Only one way to find out ! Its a Kosmokerbal Commendation for entering Duna SOI and an Advanced Pilot Precision Award for docking, '1stClass' if you return to the runway as well. The rules are all laid out in the OP fyi
  4. @Corona688 Browsing was normal at all times. For me disabling autodetect was the fix. I would guess something in the game network code was prompting autodetect to go on a redundant and repeating proxy hunt but I have none. While KSP is not multiplayer, Unity may have default network behaviour still operating. I use a Virgin cable modem/router ethernet link to a single PC.
  5. OK I think I may have stumbled across the fix for this... Win7 control panel, internet options > connections tab > LAN settings > uncheck automatically detect settings. Blizzard have a similar issue with Battlenet loading. https://us.battle.net/forums/en/bnet/topic/20753636613?page=3#post-53
  6. Congratulations to... @Steel Starling Utilitarial Commendation, Advanced Pilot Precision Award with SI-SSTO-4 "The Sky's the Limit Cargo Edition". @Laie- Expeditionary Astrokerbal Distinction (Duna), Advanced Pilot Precision Award with Flying Wing Kind of Thing. @Magzimum Advanced Pilot Precision Award with Spacebus. ... for successfully completing the K-Prize challenge. Thanks for your mission reports and welcome new arrivals and returning prizewinners to the K-Prize roll of honour aka the K-Prize party guest list. Among the gatecrashers sorry to say @Marschig because although Cruise Plane Mk2 is an accomplished, extensive and entertaining mission in its own right... it nevertheless refuelled by mining & refining fuel at Laythe etc and used the fuel as propellant which breaks proviso C. So it is linked as a gatecrasher on the OP with a quip as below. FYI it is the K-Prize tradition you can have the gatecrasher listing expunged by completing the K-Prize mission successfully if you so wish but can also retain the listing if you prefer. Thanks for participating . Marschig glossed over refining-refuelling at Laythe, denied being a rulebreaker saying, "the rules were like that when I found them".
  7. Congrats on the Thread of the Year 2017 with the K prize! :)

      I was thinking of doing that, can't believe I haven't submitted a K prize entry in all these years :blush::)

  8. Thread of the Year: 2017

    wow cool badge, added to the K-Prize OP! Thank you very much for this touching accolade for the K Prize challenge which is surely shared by the many creative and talented players who have contributed to the thread and made it what it is. It has been (and remains) a privilege to admin the challenge in this fine game community which imho is about something bigger than any one of us in allowing us to share our inspirations from this great game beyond warfare, playing among the stars, as envisioned and created by Felipe Falanghe and Squad, recognised and taken forwards by Take Two Interactive. I always thought it a worthy muse for the future of humanity, good luck everyone, & thanks @Vanamonde PS FYI the K Prize recently spawned a sister challenge run by @JacobJHC for modded installations and I encourage anyone who wishes to try the challenge with mods to participate at : The K Prize - 100% reusable spaceplane to orbit and back (Modded Version).
  9. Congratulations to... @JacobJHC Expeditionary Astrokerbal Distinction (Eeloo), Advanced Pilot Precision Award with Rei III SSTO. @McBalsam Expeditionary Astrokerbal Distinction (Eeloo & Minmus), Advanced Pilot Precision Award with, 136 seat space liner Ahti II. @DunnoAnyThing with CrapToOrbit 1.0. ... for completing the K-Prize challenge successfully. Thankyou for your mission reports and welcome (back) to the K-Prize party guest list aka the roll of honour. Congratulations also to all contributors to the K-Prize over the years as we have won the highly prestigious Thread of the Year Award 2017 ! Without your contributions there would be no thread so thanks and well played
  10. Seasons greetings to all and yuletide congratulations to... @sh1pman & @JacobJHC sh1pman Utilitarial Commendation (144t), Advanced Pilot Precision Award with Atlas XXL-144 K-Prize. Jacob JHC - Expeditionary Astrokerbal Distinction, Advanced Pilot Precision Award with Christmas Laythe SSTO. (discretionary festive cheer award) ... for completing the K-Prize mission in style. Thankyou for your mission reports and welcome (back) to the K-Prize party guest list. May I just take this opportunity to say Merry Christmas one and all and best wishes for 2018.
  11. @Joseph Kerman do you want a gatecrasher listing for that report or will you be completing the mission with a safe landing? As a successful K-Prize holder you are entitled to have gatecrashers ignored btw. @danielboro thanks for clarifying. I am linking your mission post as below but as far as I can tell the modded craft uses parts from Kerbal Interstellar Extended. So again I would recommend visiting the sister thread for modded entries if you would like to share that mission and receive the kudos and recognition it deserves. Congratulations to... danielboro with LR-PMK6. ... on completing the K-Prize successfully with adroit use of textile technologies, thankyou for your mission report and welcome to the roll of honour aka the K-Prize party guest list.
  12. Well played @Geonovast the effective response to adversity of Astrids flight crew moved the landlord at the Dog and Booster to offer a slightly used bar towel as a special discretionary award, which the the K-Prize committee agreed was well deserved. There is still some debate as to whether the green patch is Creme de Menthe or a long lost lime flavoured fruit pastille, but high hopes all around that it will come out in the wash. Congratulations on completing the K-Prize challenge mission successfully including orbital docking and a runway landing at KSC to earn the highly regarded Advanced Pilot Precision Award 1st Class. Geonovast Advanced Pilot Precision Award 1st Class with Astrid SSTO. (Discretionary right stuff award.) Thanks for your mission report and welcome to the roll of honour aka the K-Prize party guest list.
  13. OK more questions than answers today, @danielboro did your stock ship "LR-PMK6-stok" achieve orbit and then land safely, with parachutes near KSC? Sorry its just not clear from what you wrote which craft made the safe landing. Also FYI if you want to make a modded K-Prize mission report then there is a new K-Prize sister challenge thread being run by @JacobJHC especially for modded missions. @Geonovast thanks for the video but as you rightly pointed out bits blew up on landing, before the craft came to a halt, which I am sorry to say makes it a gatecrasher mission because exploding is against the rules! ... However anyone who makes a successful mission can have the gatecrasher listing removed so since you asked not to be disqualified and its unclear whether you made a successful mission or not with the docking screeny mission, at this juncture, the K-Prize committee voted unanimously to give you as much time as you want to report a successful mission where bits didn't blow up and won't give you a gatecrasher listing unless you say otherwise! Text mission reports are fine as long as it states what happened in relation to the mission rules. Congratulations to ... @TheFlyingKerman for completing the K-Prize mission successfully. TheFlyingKerman Advanced Pilot Precision Award with the HKA-3A. Thanks for your mission report and welcome to the roll of honour aka the K-Prize party guest list. Happy Christmas everybody .
