  1. Size doesn't matter as much as number of files. For each file the game needs to open and read values to put on the menu. No clue how to do languages. I thought it was mostly handled (from the user's perspective) by Steam.
  2. And very well done at that. Nice little 4-pointer there
  3. Rockets. With things dropping off on ascent. The way it was meant to be.
  4. That, and getting to Dres takes twice as much fuel than getting to Jool, mostly because you can gravity assist into Jool orbit from its moons. According to Alexmoon's calculator, and rounding a lot: Getting to Jool from Kerbin: 2000m/s (no insertion burn because gravity assists) Getting to Dres orbit from Kerbin: 4000m/s Getting to Jool from Dres: 800m/s (again, no insertion burn) Technically, if you don't gravity assist at Jool for some reason, you can do the whole trip with a ship that can only get about 4000 m/s (which is what it takes to get to Dres from Kerbin, and about what it takes to non-assist get to Jool from Dres) instead of 5000 m/s (what it takes to get to Jool from Kerbin), but that sounds like a lot of work to save 1000 m/s. And this is coming from someone who thinks Minmus refueling stations are a good idea
  5. Stock because when I do have the time and gumption to play, I'd like to actually make some progress.
  6. It's not. I blatantly refused to do my own challenge in Stock You are using a mod that tells you your dV. You are also using a mod that automatically collects science. This is nothing to be ashamed of, I use two different mods to do the same things, along with some others to do other things. However, these mods allow you to circumvent some of the limitations of stock. Essentially, if a mod changes gameplay at all (whether to make it easier or harder) you get the Modded flag. You don't have to right click your thermometer to get science. You know to the m/s2 how much dV you have at a glance. You can send a ship to Duna and do other things, confident that the alarm clock will tell you when to pay attention to it again. That's "modded." And it's a better way to play, in my opinion.
  7. Awww thanks. I have have about 5 years of experience hacking YouTube videos together, but this was a new experience for me. I recorded everything in advance without commentary, tried to only record the important things but generally got 2-4 hours of video, watched it all at 2x speed, jumping forward when necessary to skip big boring things that aren't worth commenting on, and jotting down comments with time stamps. 95% of what I wrote, I actually ended up saying verbatim. Rarely did I go off script. Then, I pasted my comment track under the video track and just cut the video down so the timestamps matched my script. I say "Just" but it of course took a lot of time. You can't do a KSP video without taking a lot of time. As you know
  8. Earth. I don't think I could live anywhere else.
  9. I've got the leaderboard back up. I am not going to say it's CORRECT, mind you. I'd be surprised if I didn't leave something out, going through all the posts in the thread. Feel free to point out where I was wrong. Two interesting points: @Jetski won this thing MORE THAN A MONTH before anybody else did. Then, within the span of 5 days, 3 people won (myself included). Everybody who has gotten over halfway done, has won (assuming I got the numbers right).
  10. Well done on that minimal ship to Ike and Duna. I'm working on the new leaderboard now, not sure how long it will take, but you're on it with 3 points currently, Kerbin SOI, Duna Landing, and Ike.
  11. Aww done! I really enjoyed doing this challenge. When I set it up, I was a bit afraid that after the first few parts (for me, after finishing off Duna) it'd be old hat again but it really never felt that way. I'm glad I did it. I've no plans to shut the challenge down, and do have plans to fix the leaderboard. So keep on posting and playing
  12. Obviously it's not alt-f12 on console, but I'm sure you have the menu somewhere. My condolences on your having to play on console.
  13. Yup that's originally mine. Not to kill anybody due to OCD, but I can tell due to the tiny flaw. The lines next to the 60 in the upper right are not as long as the lines near the other 60s. Never liked it, but never enough to fix it.
  14. I'd happily buy a KSP2 so long as it's not an iterative update, essentially 1.4 repackaged as 2.0. More like GTA4 vs GTA3, instead of Madden 2014 vs Madden 2013.
  15. Space engineers comes to mind, though I've never played it so I don't know much about it.
