  1. How do I do this? There are five quicksave files, all of them from after the glitch. No persistents.
  2. My game glitched while timewarping and two of my on-mission Kerbals somehow got marked as MIA. I'm trying to bring them back via save file editing (marking them as "Assigned" rather than "Missing" in the roster, and correcting the mission's crew count to 3) but it doesn't seem to be working. Is there anything else I can do? The mission is kinda screwed without them.
  3. Already has a thread, but yeah, RIP.
  4. Another excellent deep dive from Apogee:
  5. To be fair, combat in the Star Wars universe never made sense to begin with. They have target-tracking missiles, and yet starfighters still dogfight like it's the 1940s. Sheer pilot attrition should have brought down the Rebellion within a year. They have space battleships that can depopulate planets within days, and yet they hardly ever use orbital bombardment to force a surrender. Often they'll deploy pitifully small ground forces that have next to no air support. And worst of all, no matter how many times the above blows up in their faces, they go right back to their old habits as soon as the dust settles. Death Star got blown up? Build another one three times bigger. I love Star Wars, but like all space opera, it runs on rule of cool realistic physics and tactics. That's not a bad thing, it's just the nature of the genre.
  6. TIL there's a Dragon XL. I just assumed Starship would be taking over for lunar missions.
  7. Those seagulls will never know how lucky they were...
  8. "Inspections showed the core stage hardware, including its engines, and the B-2 test stand are in excellent condition after the first hot fire test, and no major repairs are needed to prepare for a second hot fire test" How do you go from MCF (major component failure) to "no repairs needed"? Am I misunderstanding the term? And wasn't the original test supposed to run for six minutes? Why down to four now?
  9. Technically, it orbits one star in a trinary system. Much like Vulcan. Still, very cool! I wonder how its orbit got so inclined.
  10. Got a contract to rescue a Kerbal stranded in a solar orbit. Turns out it's a *retrograde* solar orbit. This... will be interesting.
  11. No one's mentioned The Midnight Sky yet? - An Earth-like moon (with plant life and an oxygen atmosphere) orbiting Jupiter that Galileo apparently missed; also, they keep calling it a planet rather than a moon - "Uncharted space" in the inner solar system, which the Aether has to traverse after going off course - Giant asteroid clouds that sit in space like icebergs for the ship to hit - Real-time communication across interplanetary distances - Dust storms on Earth that apparently reach up into orbit They clearly weren't even trying.
  12. My point is, treaties don't mean much when the average joe can decimate planetary populations on a whim.
