  1. Those seagulls will never know how lucky they were...
  2. "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?
  3. Technically, it orbits one star in a trinary system. Much like Vulcan. Still, very cool! I wonder how its orbit got so inclined.
  4. Got a contract to rescue a Kerbal stranded in a solar orbit. Turns out it's a *retrograde* solar orbit. This... will be interesting.
  5. 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.
  6. My point is, treaties don't mean much when the average joe can decimate planetary populations on a whim.
  7. The problem with that is, plenty of starships in Mass Effect (and similar settings) are privately-owned by individuals who never signed the treaty. What's to stop some disgruntled batarian pirate from launching a suicide attack on Eden Prime just for the sake of killing a bunch of humans? We see examples of this kind of behavior all the time in the real world, sadly. I can't imagine any such treaty being enforceable enough in space to prevent these kind of attacks.
  8. Bigger gear seems to have alleviated the problem, thanks! It still wobbles a bit, but I can correct for that enough to get off the ground safely. Weird, though... I've been doing just fine with the smaller gear until last night, even with payloads in the cargo bay.
  9. I'm having a weird issue in v1.10.1 where my SSTO is constantly bouncing up and down on the runway upon loading, and refuses to stop for minutes, if ever. If I try to take off, even if the bouncing seems to have stopped, it starts to drift off the runway within seconds, and I inevitably over-correct resulting in a crash. You can see how the game registers a speed of 0.1 or 0.2m/s, which is entirely due to the bouncing. I've flown this design to orbit and back several times, so I know it isn't a design issue (although my other, smaller SSTO seems to be unaffected). No idea what t
  10. If planet X got captured by planet Y, and got stuck in its L2 Lagrangian point for however long, would it be considered a moon of Y or still just a planet?
  11. I think some basic clouds are a no-brainer (I'm still amazed that we don't have them in KSP1!), but they should be a a setting players can toggle on and off if they choose. Ideally the options would be "no clouds", "simple clouds", and "complex clouds". Stuff like weather and light scattering can probably wait for modders, or perhaps for a post-launch patch.
  12. I got a contract to rescue a Kerbal who was stranded in Duna orbit. When I was halfway there, he apparently got too close to Ike and was flung out into a solar orbit.
