  1. I'm excited to see the new VAB and SPH, and the tiny details and Easter eggs!
  2. Pretty sure I started on 0.19 (the new rover wheels of 0.20 are the first update I remember) Bought the game a few weeks before the free DLC cutoff. When I started, re-entry heating didn't exist, and End Flight would destroy your space station if you were careless enough to press it. The KSC was tiny, the parts looked very different. Mods were on Spaceport; B9 aerospace and the escape pod mod are the main ones I remember, also one called LASER but they spelled it differently. It had afterburners and missiles. I was watching Danny2462 and World War K (the creator once replied to my post, which was super exciting at the time, so I put it in my signature - it used to link to the thread but the forums changed)
  3. The speed indicator inside capsules is normal text slapped on a faintly visible 7-segment display!
  4. It's unlikely they'll ever add it, I believe they made a statement about it. It's is perfectly playable without mods, since trial and error seems to be the main style of the game.
  5. Currently? 0 mods. I wanted to get back into the game so I tried installing about 30 at once, not all of them updated to the latest version... You can imagine how well that went (didn't even reach the main menu screen...) I love mods though and some of my best games were modded. I'll try installing mods properly one day
  6. WELL, would you lock at this!
  7. That's possible, but you can look at the sources Wikipedia use, as there's a lot less room for bias.
  8. Very good space station, or floating monoprop tank, I can't tell which one it is
  9. This mod is great, I did a small test on the launchpad, and it worked well! I forgot to refill the inventory of my Mun lander, so I couldn't try all the experiments on the Mun...
  10. I may have already commented this before, but GAME STABILITY! The game has come out, regular bugs and crashes aren't acceptable any more. The Alpha and Beta stages were the time to add huge features for players to experiment with. Now the game is out, features can still be added, of course, but they should be tested very thoroughly. I'd rather have a stable game without some features than a broken game with many. In fact, I haven't played a proper career mode game in a while, because I know that something might go wrong, and I'll lose all the time I invested.
  11. I don't think i have pics of this one, but I was early in a career game, re-entering a ship with 4 large, articulated winglets. I was nose-down, coming in too fast, so I held down one of the directional controls, miraculously, the rockets pulled up, I missed the ground by about 10 metres, and landed safely shortly after.
  12. I'm not sure what you're referring to... Many won't want to solve a riddle.
  13. I've done one Duna landing with a probe, no return. One. In almost 600 hours. I'm not really sure why.
  14. I agree with the mods. I would have played maybe 10% of my current total time without mods.
  15. I went back to 1.1 after 1.1.1 came out using Steam last stable version, I wanted to make a backup, but then 1.0.2 came out, so now I'm stuck on a version not supported by mods...
  16. KSP is on the pricey side, there's no denying it. I do think it's worth the money, but then I bought it several years ago. KSP averages 4p an hour, assuming a £20 cost and 500 hours of playing the game. That's great value for money. But then I've played it 500 hours. You might not, in which case you'll lost a non-trivial amount of money for only a few hours of fun. I still recommend the game, but I encourage you to play the demo before buying the full game.
  17. I would recommend looking at it one axis at a time. For example: I'm going up, forwards and to the left. Cancel out up, now I'm only going forwards and to the left. Then only to the left, then stopped. I find it easier than trying to do them all at once.
  18. I would say a joystick worth it just for the throttle. It makes landings so much easier horizontally or vertically, since you have so much more control. That said, I love using the axes while in IVA with RasterProp monitors installed.
  19. Talk more of the good things in the game, like the OP wants us to, don't limit it to "all good except for"
  20. The main sentiment is that it's a singleplayer game, so you play it your way, if you think it's cheating then don't use it.
  21. I played the demo, I bought the game on the same day or the day after, I can't remember. I think demos are great and I wish every game I wanted to buy had one...
  22. [quote name='Thourion']UFO on the bottom right spotted :cool:[/QUOTE] THE MUN LANDINGS WERE FAKED etc.
