  1. Daedelus is I think the inspiration for the craft we see at 9:53. Daedelus is a fusion design with putative 12% of lightspeed, so not FTL... FYI but hopefully fairly efficient. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Project_Daedalus I wonder if they will have light sails and Bussard ramjets / plasma scoops? Wherever they are going with this it sounds like we are on the final approach since we only have about 8 months to spring 2020 ! So I guess we will have to wait and see. I have good Uber karma as I backed Planetary Annihilation at kickstarter and got PA:Titans into the bargain and am still enjoying it. So I trust they have good taste, especially when it comes to explosions. Those planetary impacts are quite something If I am honest, my immediate thought on hearing of KSP2 was to hope Star Theory have been able to revisit the tech tree, research, mission progression and Kerbal experience because I think there are a lot of potential gameplay dynamics in there which have not been developed.
  2. No this is not fraud. I can understand people feeling suspicious considering the behaviour of some game makers but IMHO this is completely legit. Private Division have done a lot to extend KSP for which ye olde backers like me were never even charged, living up to the promises made by Squad and they have given everyone value for money. The time has come, if we want KSP to live and grow, when we have to pony up to make it possible. In the end KSP is about more than money, its about Kerbals... in space...! ...?
  3. KSP2 !!! Well why didn't you say so!? Awesome interstellar colonies! Cant stop smiling. Looking forward to this, will pay money np
  4. Indeed it did @arctangent and a good job too since in space, noone can hear your propellers... whirring... Congratulations are in order for adroit use of RAPIER engine technology to bring a satellite plus spectators into Kerbin orbit thus completing the K-Prize challenge with added kudos for landing on the KSC runway. Your mission report has been listed with a Utilitarial Commendation and an Advanced Pilot Precision Award for the flight of Aleph III. Many thanks for participating and welcome to the K-Prize party guest list aka the roll of honour. Feel free to grab a badge and wear it with pride if you so wish (link is under the big logo on the first page).
  5. Congratulations @Lokachop on taking on and completing the K-Prize mission successfully with SSOrbiter MK1. Thankyou for your mission report and welcome to the roll of honour aka the K-Prize party guest list. It makes sense to reduce the lift off weight by removing fuels you will not be using.
  6. Congratulations @Reinhart Mk.1 on your good taste in piano music and on completing the K-Prize mission and with the help of a plethora of parachutes and some interesting reentry manoeuvres earning the highly regarded accolade of... - Expeditionary Astrokerbal Distinction (Duna), Advanced Pilot Precision Award with Javelin Mk.1 Thankyou for your video mission report and welcome to the K-Prize roll of honour aka the K-Prize party guest list
  7. I have only just discovered Aurora 4X myself (from a Steam post about Distant worlds) and it has taken over a week of reading the wiki etc to learn how to play it and I am still a noob. No wonder they call it the Dwarf Fortress of 4X ! Made my first jump today, with lots of engineering bays, just in case.
  8. Hi @Dale Christopher, yes this thread lives on! Screeny mission reports are very welcome. Even text reports are permissible, regarding which, if you would like to supply the name of the craft I will add it to the K-Prize listing, otherwise I will invent one So ... congratulations on completing the K-Prize mission to the letter with an interesting VSTOL design with rotating rear thruster. Thanks for your mission report and welcome to the K-Prize party guest list aka the roll of honour.
  9. Also there is an LOD issue with Munstones. They can be seen easier by zooming out with a distant LOD than they can at intermediate distance where there appears to be a missing LOD model because they completely vanish until you get much closer.
  10. Oh no! Sorry to be a party pooper but its not a K-Prize if it doesnt land safely Do you want a Gatecrasher listing?
  11. Yup, has to be. All it effects is the multiplier protocol, doesn't disqualify the flight.
  12. A multiplier is only appropriate for repeat flights of the exact same craft, as any change to the base craft can effect thrust to weight ratios etc. Otherwise each successful K-Prize variant deserves its own listing. Hence your latest mission was listed as Skylon-KerbalArm and not merely +1 to the x12.
  13. @Dman Revolution you are very welcome to make reports here as the K-Prize is all about reusability and what you are doing is an appropriate match and takes it to the next level. I feel sure many other contributors and readers will be interested. So if you are willing please do. I will find ways to link each report on the front page so people understand what they can look at. wrt rules, technically the above is a unique config because of the arm module even if it released the tank (which I understand it didnt). But it looks like another K-Prize winner so congratulations once again. The shuttle looks very convincing btw.
