  1. The version in CKAN is listed to be compatible for 1.7.0. So I currently can't install it through CKAN.
  2. As far as I know, there are no solar pannels installed, so it's probably running on batteries?
  3. Real-life KSP. For Science! https://www.facebook.com/SpaceX/posts/10160289646130131 PS: Look at the comments
  4. "Just another 5 minutes" was a category from last year's awards. This year they have other categories.
  5. @Darth Badie The Steam Awards are back! So here is another chance I'm giving to KSP and made my nomination: Of course, you can pick any other category that you see fit. But this one seemed perfect to me. Let's boost KSP's chances to get a Steam Award this year and get to nominating! http://store.steampowered.com/SteamAwardNominations/
  6. #KSPooky The Kraken lies there, For bold Bob to examine. A blink... then his end! Eerie Minmus' mists. Knock! Knock! Who's there? Beware! Only void awaits... PS: I don't have a Twitter account.
  7. Good that you are all well and safe. Hopefully you'll also be able to rebuild in a short time.
  8. Love those introductions! Keep it up. Anxiously awaiting the expansion.
  9. Drumroll Can't wait to try it out! Many thanks!
  10. Got a new gaming laptop and would like to give this mod another try. Just waiting for an updated version in ckan. Thanks for the great work, this eye-candy here is amazing!
  11. Kerbals are born Astronauts! So why escape to the boring pile of dust called a planet/moon/dwarf-planet/asteroid/comet when you can remain among the beauty of the stars? Sure, this pod can land safely, glide to the warm comfort of the space center, can even be modified to chute into the cool ocean, but why do all of this when you can escape.... well, to just about any other safe space station around any other planet or moon? When you accidentally blow up your space station, deorbit it or just grow bored of your habitat, simply hop on and with the power of ion-drives, go and invade the privacy of fellow Kerbonauts on any other space station that is still in one piece. It has around 5700m/s delta V, giant solar panels for quick recharging between burns and there is even a deluxe-version that can rescue 4 more Kerbals along the way if the need arises (with slightly less delta V, around 4700). Do not be fooled by the engines. While they lack any sort of serious power alone, together, these little ion-spitters deliver quite a punch, so strap in. Here is a simulation: a scientist quickly leaving Acheron Station around the Mün and heading back to Kerbin.
  12. The Planetary Society organises today the March for Science, basically a call to all humanity and governments to support science and our strive to reach for the stars. Since there is no march organised in my country, I thought I could at least support the initiative with a poster (KSP is a great way to do this and right on topic):
  13. Ion powered landers and transport ships, with Kerbals
  14. Acheron Station around the Mün. In the back is the refueller docked, nicknamed "Starfish", that hauls thousands of units of fuel at a time from the surface. Sideways are 2 shuttles: one meant for landing and returning to the station and the other one, ion-powered, with tons of delta V for transporting 2 Kerbals at a time between stations. I'm planning to build a similar station around Minmus to serve as a midway station in my interplanetary trips. The cost is pretty high (over 2 million kredits with launch into low Kerbin orbit in one go), so, for now, I have to complete more contracts to fund these monsters.
  15. Safe travels and have a great time! If you decide to visit Transylvania, send a message
