  1. The cinematic trailer seems to imply that yes, there will be proper storm systems and clouds visible from orbit, though we haven't seen any gameplay footage of Jool yet too my knowledge.
  2. I saw that movie. It didn't end well.
  3. Got a contract to recover a part from Ike orbit. I didn't know which part until I got there.
  4. I've been away from the game for a while and am just starting to get back into it. I've noticed that the part that worked like a strut (i.e. you could place the two ends, then drag a strut between them) appears to be missing now. Was it removed or am I encountering a bug? Would love to have that functionality back. All I see are the KAS cable and pipe attachments.

  6. Maybe a dumb question, but when they do tests like these, how does the engine not go flying away? Especially since it doesn't have a payload on top. Do they just weigh it down as much as they can beforehand and hope it's enough?
  7. Having a similar issue in my (modded) Career game. The In/Out option doesn't appear when I try to transfer fuel: Possibly related: trying to transfer TAC Life Support resources doesn't work either -- the In/Out options are there, but nothing happens when I toggle them. EDIT: Reloading the game fixed the TAC problem, but not the fuel problem.
  8. We often refer to stars as being red, yellow, blue, etc. But the sun, a "yellow" star, actually looks white when viewed from outside the atmosphere. So what color would the other star types be in unfiltered light?
  9. A moon the size of a car isn't much of a moon. Find one the size of Texas and then we'll talk.
  10. Remember when Boeing was the reliable one and SpaceX the reckless underdog?
  11. I don't doubt the orbit would be unstable, but it's for a soft science setting, so doesn't really matter. Anyway, going by mass, would it make more sense for this world to referred to as a planet or a moon?
  12. Hypothetically, could a celestial body in the L2 point of a hot Jupiter be permanently shaded from its sun? If so, would this make more sense as a planet, or moon of said hot Jupiter? And what type of star would be optimal for this scenario?
