  1. I want to put a tower on that.
  2. Achieving engineering perfection. “Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.” - Antoine de Saint-Exupery I never get around to taking things away.
  3. The first time I visited Duna I did it on my first real tower lander. If I'm remembering right, it's been some years. Frightfully rough design, at that time, but she flew.
  4. Well, if you want an alpha tester that can stress everything at once, you know where to find me. -ish.
  5. We'll never have kids, unfortunately. She had a medical condition at a young age that required some surgery. But, there's always the option to adopt. The only games I've seen her play are a Mario Kart game on an old gamecube. But, she's amazing at tabletop things. We just recently bought Catan. We're doing two player games for now, because family game night is basically out... I'm in an area with significant coronavirus issues and we can't afford the risk. Thank you for the well-wishes, all!
  6. Thank you! I will keep that in mind. The new wife and I have lived in the same house now for about four years. In that time, we've never argued. We've never shouted at each other, not once. I attribute this to several factors; One, we're basically hippies and we don't sweat the small things. Two, we have the capability of discussing anything like adults. Three, both of us take responsibility for errors and mistakes, though admittedly I am the more egregious offender. And four, we both are human and realise the same applies to the other. We might have a rough patch one day, but so far we're doing pretty darned good.
  7. Can confirm. Am occasionally holding person status.
  8. Sorry I've been away, folks. Got a bad fever last wedensday and I'm still recovering from it.
  9. Right now the Arkingthaad NEXT Mk2 has 288 Mammoth motors for a combined in-atmosphere thrust of 1,078,857.216 kilonewtons and in space she'll have 1,152,000 kilonewtons. I hope to launch tonight. She's half built. Delta-v at the moment is five thousand-ish.
  10. Well, usually I do a hex stack for them crisp 60 degree angles, but I suppose I could have an additional set of triangles outside. And it would give my landing legs a wider gait. I will look in to it.
  11. I love boosters. One of my favorite things is making my own boosters.
  12. And moving the new build further along, the *Price* named motor group has gotten some tweaking. This subgroup engine cluster rates a quarter million thrust in air and probably about three hundred thousand in space. I'm gonna put six of 'em on my next munar lander.
  13. I wish to report that I have achieved the near impossible. Having gotten making history, and the new largest tank and the largest engine, I have done it all. I have VAB extender mod or whatever, that lets you go above the roof of the VAB. Not only did I build to the top of that, but I also pushed as much as I could into the floor, and hooked it together. With a new motor on the bottom I'm calling *Price*. I put it on the pad, and I launched it. It broke after a while, but here it is. Ladies and gentlemen, what you're about to see is a native screenshot, and photoshop hasn't touched it. I think I'm going to need a bigger VAB mod. Anyone know of one that lets you go higher or lower, removes the building, and lets you zoom out further? Asking for a friend.
