    Space Used Stage becomes a Capsule

    Did you use the aim camera option on one of these parts before staging? even after staging it will keep the camera aimed at the targeted part even though you might actually be in control of the next stage. it could also be a problem with your root part. change your root part to one in your last stage. this can be done in the vab.
  2. I Downloaded your craft and took her for a test flight. It's nicely balanced! So I fiddled around a bit and this is what I came up with: It gives yaw stability but no yaw control. Not a real problem since it has enough reaction wheels I found. craft file: https://www.dropbox.com/s/ad8p832qpg6zet7/Orzel-XI V4X Tail 1.craft?dl=0

    tadaa!
  5. Tadaa, at first I wanted to put a parachute as a nosecone, but then I remembered the thrust reverser! a little bit scary when landing this thing, with a high angle of attack and no clear view of the runway from the cockpit!

    What did you build two years ago?

    This album is in a few days exactly 2 years old. It shows my first operational space shuttle launching and visiting my ring station aptly named Saturn. I used to be all about SSTO's at the time, and didn't build much shuttles after this one. about a year ago my interest turned more towards space shuttles and I have been building loads of em since then.
  7. Thanks, guess I built my sat more for looks than functionality! Launched it anyway in my career save, cause it looks cool and It's a fun shuttle mission to bring it up and assemble its solar panels with a shuttle.
  8. I like this Idea. I think the best way to do this is making it a keyboard + mouse-click combination available for every part. I see no sense in limiting it to control parts, that would influence designs and increase part count just to look at your craft. And right-click menus should be for controlling the craft and some parts have pretty long menus already. an example I would like it: hold Y and click a part to focus camera around that part, and Y + right mouse button to reset to center of mass.

    I suck at this!!!!

    Snark is right, you could rendezvous as it is coming into Kerbins SOI. Just like a simple asteroid intercept.
  10. Would the rate at which you detect asteroids increase if you put multiple telescopes on a single vessel? Would two sentinel satellites spot more asteroids aimed at the same planet than a single sentinel?

    So what ended your Career mode play through?

    I start a new career save every new version. I usually have some sort of focus for my early career. This time it is space shuttles.

    Station Design Guidelines

    Use a tug for construction. that way you can minimize part count on the station by leaving control parts and rcs thrusters on the tug, and keeping the part count of your modules to a minimum. This might sound like common sense but It wasn't mentioned yet.

    Parachute proper usage

    You can use the Presmat Barometer to check the pressure per altitude. you can check it with a simple test flight. 4KM is for example a usually safe parachute deployment altitude and pressure at this altitude would be 0.54atm. Here are some common deployment altitudes:

    Poll: What is your favorite moon?

    Mün! It's close by, has some great easter eggs, and is sort of the proving grounds for any new KSP player. It is like a friendly neighbor that always has it's door open for you.

    KSP Manufacturers Real Life Counterparts?

    Rockomax Conglomerate = Rockwell International. "Rockwell International was a major American manufacturing conglomerate in the latter half of the 20th century, involved in aircraft, the space industry etc." - Wikipedia The companies that built the Apollo CM/SM and the Space Shuttle orbiters were all part of Rockwell International.
