  1. The K-Prize Party Thread. K-Prize badge by WafflesToo (sig badges). The K Prize challenge is to make the obvious craft, a spaceplane, and make it work. All those who succeed will be included on the roll of honour and get a free back stage pass to hang with Kay Kool and the Kerbettes after their next live performance at the Dog and Booster (where free beer will be available). To enter report relevant accomplishments on a mission which actually flew, your word is good enough but images and videos are welcome. Rules 1. The craft must launch and land intact using only the amount of fuel on board at launch, may not lose stages or parts in flight, no refuelling for thrust, see provisos below. 2. The craft must launch horizontally, reach orbit (PE > 70,000m) and land intact (on Kerbin) ready for 'refuelling'. 3. All fuel tanks, wings (ie lift generators & aerodynamic environments) and engine parts must be stock, for fairness. Provisos to rule 1. A. Payloads may decouple from the craft providing all payload tanks are as full on decoupling as at launch and any thrust (or lift) generators on the payload were not used prior to decoupling. Excursion vehicles may decouple and redock but only achievements of the entire craft count towards K-Prize kudos. B. Docking is permitted providing no fuel is transferred (net per fuel type) into the K-Prize craft and then used for propulsion (it can be transferred out or in as payload). Likewise no propulsion assist is permitted from the target craft fuel or engines. Crew transfers are permitted. C. Mining and refining are permitted providing none of the resulting fuel product is used to drive the craft i.e. mined fuel is treated as payload only. D. Pilots wishing to try the challenge with mod equipment may do so in the sister challenge thread "The K Prize - 100% reusable spaceplane to orbit and back (Modded Version)". +Kudos 1. Smallest ship (by weight, weight info required). Minimalist record. 2. Largest ship (by weight, weight info required). Maximalist record. 3. Highest orbit beyond Eeloo. Altitudinalist record. 4. Landing on KSC terrain. Pilot proficiency medal. 5. Landing on any KSC runway or docking in orbit. Advanced pilot precision award (1stClass for both). 6. Visiting other SOIs. Kosmokerbal Commendation. 7. Planetoid landings. Astrokerbal Distinction. 8. Payload to orbit, including fuel transfer out also mined product or fuel store to Kerbin from asteroid. Utilitarial Commendation. 9. Payload to distant planet surface including fuel transfer out also mined product or fuel store to Kerbin from planet. Utilitarial Distinction. Prefixes: Exploratory applies to planetoid missions and Expeditionary applies to planetary lander missions outside Kerbin's sphere of influence. (Planets are defined as the central body in their own SOI with a boundary adjacent to Kerbol's SOI or gravity exceeding 0.75 of Kerbins.) Guest List (Roll of Honour.)

GRS Advanced Pilot Precision Award with Proto Taxis 2. Version 1.1 + Version 1.0.5 Guest Lists from previous versions. Gate Crashers (Dodged the bouncers.) K-Prize Gatecrasher's badge by WafflesToo (sig badges). Hall of infamy. Previous gatecrashers. Temstar insisted that upstaging Elon Musk was not against the K-Prize rules. Kokanee declared the runway to be disruptive technology. ihtoit quoted in kerbin Gazette "trial and error isn't so expensive if you leave insurance claims until after the next launch". Gojira1000 didn't mention the drilling equipment and fuel converter to the K-Prize adjudication panel since it was a minor detail. manni01 was adamant that refueling was essential for returning to Kerbin, supplied video evidence. Didnt read proviso C because it was "just the small print". micr0wave forgot which side the wheels were on, may have lost a wing... or two. JebsDead said whatever exploded wasn't very important... probably. (Presented a couple of mining videos to show how rarely explosions matter.) n.b.z. wasnt sure how to get Mirgy and her flying saucer back from Duna but was OK with that. Spartwo beat the odds but lost quite a lot of spaceship. cy4n argued that a spaceplane was a rocket with wings, suggested the K-Prize panel should try not to worry about the "drop tanks". luizopiloto considered the mission a democratic success, since a majority of parts didnt explode on touchdown. Jebediah Klerman brought a rocket to a spaceplane challenge. Felt rules were biased against vertical take off, which they are. Spaceception came back down to Kerbin with a bit of a bump... and an explosion... or two... Marschig glossed over refining-refuelling at Laythe, denied being a rulebreaker saying, "the rules were like that when I found them". hoioh suggested there was no such thing as bad publicity. ... can you do better
  2. Congratulations to @GRS for completing the K-Prize mission by the skin of your teeth with ProtoTaxis 2, earning a well deserved Advanced Pilot Precision Award for a drogue assisted landing at KSC runway and a place at the table among the honoured guests of the K Prize party at the Dog and Booster. Thanks for your mission report and welcome to the roll of honour.
  3. Congratulations to @purpleivan on completing the K-Prize mission successfully with Space Plane K earning a Utilitarial Commendation for the innovative personal reentry vehicle launch and an Advanced Pilot Precision Award 1st Class for docking in orbit and navigating back to KSC runway to land safely. The well framed and sized screenshots are worthy of a special mention because they present a commendably clear, readily understood record of the mission, involving photogenic craft designs, no doubt helped by the EVE mod but owing much to the eye of the mission director. Many thanks for your mission report and welcome to the K-Prize party guest list aka the Roll of Honour.
  4. Congratulations @Tallinu on completing the K-Prize mission achieving a satellite launch and station rendezvous with a safe landing at KSC runway which unquestionably deserves a Utilitarial Commendation and the Advanced Pilot Precision Award 1st Class for the flight of the Prometheus Low Tech SSTO.
  5. @Tallinu yes, you are right, as long as the mods dont alter craft physics from stock then its fine. The purpose being to enable comparison between missions and permit meaningful competition for some of the kudos titles. I havent tried Atmosphere Autopilot, but if it simply stabilizes and guides the craft as it appears to then its fine, MechJeb is OK too. You have a striking craft design which from the sound of it has already completed the K-Prize. I will wait for the promised video in the hope you will supply a name. I am afraid Kerbal transfer doesnt count unless you leave their cabin at the station... The problem is a pilot swap would be a zero mass Kerbal transfer achievement and it would require complex rules to make sense of passengers which I am not going to get into. So payload delivery is what counts for utilitarial kudos. Hope that makes sense
  6. Do not despair @HeroBrian_333 for here with some piloting tips is Calman Kerman, rescuing Tanlin in a career game working search and rescue spaceplane called Gogitem. https://imgur.com/a/j2tGD1i Took a while of R&D to work out how to use the RAPIER with new atmosphere physics as I have been playing this career a while on hard and so only recently acquired RAPIER technology. I am awarding myself an APPA for making orbit and landing on the runway.
  7. @TheFlyingKerman re: first mission (Jan 26 mission ) sorry if I missed a 1st class there. In my defence tbh the screenshots you are using are so small and blurry they are difficult to decipher and I could not see what was going on clearly and the text did not mention docking. Are you saying that the "installation complete" screeny is of ship and payload all docked with an existing station core which was already in orbit? If I might make a suggestion, such fine vessels and elegant piloting deserve slightly more detailed screenies. Have you tried IMGUR ? So to today's mission erm... I am hoping that was a Utilitarial Commendation to Minmus with APPA please let me know if I am wrong. Congratulations anyway and sincerely thanks for you mission report and for participating in the K-Prize.
  8. @TheProfessor2112 OK, I can see why you might have missed it as it is only in the small print, I will revise the rules to make the no refuelling bit clearer. If completing the mission is how you want to play it then that is just fine, thanks for saying, please take all the time you need, np.
  9. @lapis it would help if you described what you did in the way of completing the K-Prize mission @TheFlyingKerman looking good, congratulations on another Utilitarian Commendation with APPA for HKA-6B. Thanks for your report. @TheProfessor2112 Great craft and nice mission but I would like to draw your attention to the rules on the first page, specifically rule #1 provisos B and C as I am sorry to say refuelling is not within the K-Prize rules. So you can choose to have a gatecrasher listing or complete the K-Prize mission as a successful mission, which supercedes a gatecrasher and grants you the right to expunge your record. I will wait on your decision. The minimal K-Prize mission is to take off to orbit and land safely.
  10. I have a problem with my Steam version career save after the latest update which relocked a lot of parts in my ongoing game. Unlocking again I can cope with but some parts are completely absent now, like EP-50 Engine Plate for example. It is not visible in decoupling or by searching in the VAB but is showing as owned in the research building interface. Furthermore ships built using the EP-50 are showing a warning when trying to load them that they are missing a part named "EnginePlate3" but they load perfectly well and contain EP-50 even though it is not available to build. Does anyone know what is going on and is there a fix? I tried looking at bug reports and saw none about this yet. I tried verifying the game and it redownloaded two files but this did not fix this issue. If I go to a sandbox game save all the engine plates are available as they should be, it just seems to be the career game which is bugged. I would prefer to rescue this career game because it is on hard settings and I have spent a while getting this far, also there is no guarantee a fresh career game will be free of the bug.
  11. Not modded in any way. This is how it ended up after the update. I checked composites and metamaterials and they are also listed there in research but I have not researched these yet. I guess what has happened here is that I unlocked them before the devs moved them to higher tier research and then they became locked again, but were not removed from the unlocked listing in Advanced Construction research panel. So hopefully all I have to do to get them back is unlock the higher tiers. Thanks that helped
  12. Merry Christmas to the intrepid crews of Kerbal Space Program, may the Christmas star guide you all to a safe touchdown! best booly
  13. In which case, congratulations once again @Aquaticfantastic on completing another successful K-Prize mission which has been listed beneath your previous with the following kudos... - Utilitarial Commendation, Advanced Pilot Precision Award 1st Class with the R8-ZR. ... for completing a K-Prize first and delivering fuel to an orbiting ship. Thankyou for your mission report and welcome back to the K-Prize party guest list aka the roll of honour.
  14. OK @Aquaticfantastic if you want to include that delivery mission for listing and kudos a text report will do, just need to know the name of the ship and details like dock/transfer in orbit and landing location and that no parts were lost etc.
  15. Congratulations to @Aquaticfantastic on a successful K-Prize mission resulting in the award of the highly prestigious Advanced Pilot Precision Award 1st Class with the R8-ZR. Thankyou for your mission report and welcome to the K-Prize party guest list, aka the roll of honour. Regarding the question of delivering monopropellant to a space station in orbit, I think that counts as a Utilitarian Commendation, because it is transporting mass into orbit just like the release of a small satellite. Interestingly though there is no precedent for that as noone has done it yet to the best of my knowledge and so it is not included in the rules, so I will amend the rules.
  16. Congratulations to @Bitrefresh on completing the K-Prize mission snatching success from the jaws of doom with the following accomplishments (added beneath the first mission listing). - Utilitarial Commendation, Advanced Pilot Precision Award 1st Class with Condor Mark VII. - Advanced Pilot Precision Award with Merlin Mark VII. Thanks for your engaging mission report and welcome back to the roll of honour aka K-Prize party guest list. btw I left the Merlin entry as a standard APPA as I was not sure where it landed and took the mission log at face value for KSC terrain. If it landed on the runway then its an APPA 1st class and this can be corrected in the listing.
  17. It is definitely allowed @Bitrefresh , its also perfectly OK to replay from F5 saves as many times as you want.
  18. Congratulations to ... @JacobTheFoxx Pilot Proficiency Medal with SpeedyBoi V1. ... on completing the K-Prize mission successfully, landing at KSC beach. Thanks for your mission report and welcome to the K-Prize roll of honour aka the K-Prize party guest list! @Bitrefresh Thanks for your mission report for the flight of The Condor Mark V. I am sorry to say the loss of parts you mentioned on landing so courageously and desperately at the island runway is an automatic disqualification for the K-Prize. Since you already completed the challenge successfully you have the choice to have your mission linked as a gatecrasher, though the default is for the gatecrasher to be deftly brushed under the carpet and left unlisted, so say if you want the gatecrasher listing.
  19. Well alright then congratulations to ... @AVeryNiceSpacePenguin Advanced Pilot Precision Award with X-20 Dynasoar SSTO. ... on completing the K-Prize mission successfully in a compact and effective craft. Thanks for your mission reports and welcome to the roll of honour aka the K-Prize party guest list.
  20. Congratulations to ... @Hydrothermalventclam Advanced Pilot Precision Award 1st Class with the OV-01 Kestrel. ... on completing the K-Prize challenge and earning a 1st class award for the precision double achievement of landing on KSC runway and docking in orbit. @Mjp1050 Advanced Pilot Precision Award with Moustache. ... on completing the K-Prize challenge with a distinctive trefoil design and landing safely on the KSC runway. Thanks for your mission reports and welcome to the K-Prize party guest list aka the roll of honour. @AVeryNiceSpacePenguin since you asked, tbh I dont know if it counts because its not certain from the mission report whether the X-20 Dynasoar SSTO made orbit, since none of the screenies show it did and the report did not explicitly say that it did. If it did make orbit (with PE > 70km) then all you have to do is state this fact somewhere in the mission report as text and it would qualify.
  21. Thanks for your video report of an awesome far reaching flight to Ike there @PrvDancer85 going around is perfectly acceptable, its where the mission ends which counts and the KSC runway is ... simply the best ... ! So congratulations on earning the kudos of an Exploratory Astrokerbal Distinction (Ike) and an Advanced Pilot Precision Award with LfoOnly3. Welcome to the K-Prize party guest list, aka the role of honour, fancy dress optional.
  22. Red Dead Redemption 2, another fine game from the Take Two stables, well reputed 'round these parts... yip.
  23. @Aquaticfantastic If you read the first post of the thread it gives you a few pointers. Which means you make a mission report in this thread, looking at the other mission reports should give you an idea, which can be text or image or video. To publish videos or images here you need to host them elsewhere and add a link by the appropriate means. I dont know how you do that with a PS4 as I dont have one. Imgur has its own button on the toolbar. I think a YouTube link is recognised automatically. Anyway its your call and I hope you can find a way but if you need to make a text only report that is good enough as above. We are on the honour system.
  24. Of course, if you look at the first post rules you will see there is kudos specifically for delivering payloads to distant orbits or planet surfaces. If you mean picking up a payload there are kudos examples worked out for ore transport so we will have to see if a mission is comparable. If you could be more specific and I could give you a more specific answer. Congratulations are in order to @ValCab33 for a highly professional mission of mercy, utility & precision with Pegasus VI. Thankyou for your mission report and welcome to the K-Prize roll of honour aka the K-Prize party guest list, well flown
  25. I play quite a lot and finally have got to say something about the map mode and arbitrary fading of craft and their orbit traces which are not the focus. Please give me a button which stops all the fading entirely. I guess whoever added it was trying to help but the algorithm continually guesses wrong about what I want to see and what I dont, basically I want to see everything. (I am not talking about the orbit trace bright / fade slider already in the game, I mean that whole craft and their orbits are faded out.) For instance today I wanted to switch to a craft I knew was approaching Minmus inside the SOI on an escape trajectory which needed a deceleration burn to insert into an orbit. So in the map after finishing maneuvers with another craft outside Minmus SOI, I switched to focus on Minmus and the craft I wanted was not visible at any zoom level, only orbiting craft were visible so I had to go through the tracking station. This doesnt help and it should not have been faded. This is just an example, the fade is continually obstructive and never helpful, it even happens to the craft I am focussed on sometimes, it just isnt working right. Second quality of life suggestion is please have a way to toggle MNV display to permanent in the tracking station. It is such a pain trying to read all the node times when they are continually blinking out for four seconds and you have more than half a dozen. If you could do something about those that would be great because they are the foremost of my list of desirable changes.
