  1. I do not know why they make it so difficult to give them money, especially when there's very little opportunity to make profit from me software-wise. I bought a motorcycle last week, and they made it extremely easy to give them my money. Ah well. I'm preaching to the choir here anyway.
  2. That's actually a pretty creative design! Speaking of which, I remember someone did a Cafe Press shirt with PROGRADE on the front and RETROGRADE on the back, with the respective maneuver node symbols. I thought that was amusing.
  3. Not me! I have the entire line of Shapeways figures except for Val and the planets. It was when I went back to buy Val that I found out they were all gone. (That should be the name of my new rock band: Val and the planets) However, I think it's really strange they find it so difficult to sell us stuff...
  4. The 1st time I tried to rendezvous. Boy... I thought I was sooper hawt spaceship flyboy after being a space nut for 30 years and I'd have NO problem doing a rendezvous. I had read Buzz's thesis and everything! I wuz SMART! Whelp. KSP took my ego down a bunch of notches. After a couple days of trying to do it, I installed MechJeb and pressed the big red button marked "Rendezvous" I spent another 20 minutes going "what the **** is IT DOING?" as it raised the orbit to something that would intersect in less than an ice age, did the proper Hohmann intercept, and did all the flipping around to do the braking burn and proximity burns. The "ooooh" lightbulb that popped up at each stage could have powered New York for a week.
  5. Yeah right. I started a thread a year ago about getting the 3D printed Kerbals back, and I got nothing but empty promises from Squad & the community manager. I don't see it happening any time soon. There was an effort to do a collector's edition with a Kerbal X rocket statue, figurines, and a Mun backdrop and it went nowhere. https://www.geek.com/games/85-kerbal-space-program-gamers-edition-has-a-bunch-of-cool-collectibles-1624501/
  6. Silly question... does this make it easier to judge level/flat areas on the Mun? That's the hardest part of landing for me... I end up tipping over afterwards on a crater edge a LOT.
  7. I think it's really strange that the large lander pods don't have space for experiments. I've added 6 slots to the new Mk2 Lander Can, which is really useful when it's in large rover form. // Add experiment inventory slots to new Mk 2 lander can // Author: GeneCash @PART[mk2LanderCabin_v2] { MODULE { name = ModuleInventoryPart InventorySlots = 6 } }
  8. 1m 6s from hitting enter on the command to hearing music. That's with both DLCs, MechJeb, Kerbal Alarm Clock, ThroughTheEyes, and ModuleManager. i7-3770 CPU @ 3.40GHz, 32GB RAM, and SSDs.
  9. I loaded my career this weekend and had forgotten about this: Crikey. I guess I better rename my mission to Kerpollo 15 and add a rover with an arm and all of the science instruments. P.S. I bought 0.20.2 six years ago last Tuesday. I haven't even played HALO that long!
  10. I know KSP has always limited the number of samples and the amount of science (e.g. one crew report) but it's getting ridiculous. Why can't I pick up a meteorite AND some blueberries on Duna? Considering the size of the green sandstone they pick up on Minmus, it's certainly not the size of their pockets! Why can't I scan a sand dune and then some blueberries with the arms? Are they using a 8mb SD card to store the data? I really think the science limits need to be revised with the new stuff you can do in mind.
  11. Yup. I'm ticked that I'll be 70 before there are nuclear powered helicopters on Titan in 2034 (https://www.spaceflightinsider.com/missions/solar-system/forget-mars-nasa-considering-sending-a-helicopter-to-one-of-saturns-moons/) Probably explains why I haven't been past Duna in career mode.
  12. It's amazing how rockets are really bright AF. I can be 50 miles away at home, and a Falcon 9 or Atlas is still really bright to look at, especially at night. Almost as bad as a welding flare. When the booster splashed down, I almost said "do we revert to VAB now?" but I'm pretty sure I would have gotten punched.
  13. I work there and watched it. When it staged, I said "Jebediah! NO!" Nobody got it, except one friend that doubled-over laughing.
  14. Kerbal Alarm Clock stock. Some way to build launch pads that you could select in the VAB like the current ones. Possibly you'd need to build a base with a certain (large) mass and population.
