  1. Would be nice if we could see the base, and if the pic you have was during daylight so we can see it
  2. The goo jiggles and wobbles as the craft flies.
  3. Didn't say it was a comedy, i was taken aback by his lack of care over the lives of our astronauts. Maybe im just sensitive XD
  4. I don't think you have any clue how not funny that would be.
  5. I have succesfully docked a spacecraft using the claw but that crashed my game so looks like it's back to docking ports!
  6. I don't believe it is possible to switch between vehicles if they have not been launched from the same body, so no.
  7. So I've noticed, in the SPH and the VAB it is always sunny, despite it being night time in kerbal time. I would love to see this change in a newer update, it's rather small and probably petty but it would be cool nonetheless!
  8. You have to start with the two vessels connected, basically attach your plane to the vessel you want to dock with and decouple once you are in the air
  9. I'm not sure if there are many more difficult challenges than this, I have been attempting for four hours, and have gotten so close, but not enough to complete it The challenge, as it is, is to dock, and refuel two aircraft, whilst in flight in the new aero model. I have seen a few accomplish this in the old soupmosphere, but flying at high speeds with just the slightest movement throwing you off is a much greater challenge. I myself have gotten inches away, from docking in flight using a prop plane, and I would love to see a few avid pilots accomplish, what I believe is the hardest thing in Kerbal Space program! Below are a few images of me getting close, and I am fluent in the art of formation flying now I used KAX for the propellors, and B9 procedural wings for the nice looks and functionality. The rules are pretty simple: Dock two flying spacecraft. You can get points for leaderboards by stepping out of the box a little, try to reach the top of the leaderboards DOCKING PORTS Which one did you use? Kerbal Klaw- 0.5 points Clamp o' tron Sr- 1 points Clamp o' tron docking point (1.25)- 1.5 points Clamp o' tron Jr (for hardcore people)- 3 points DOCKING SPEEDS get points for how fast you are travelling at time of docking! 0-200m/s- 1 point 201-350- 1.5 points 351-499- 2 points 500-799- 3 points 800-1000- 5.5 points 1000+- 7 points ROUGH ALTITUDE OF DOCK for those who fly high! 0-2999m- 2 points 3000-4999m- 3 points 5000-7500m- 4 points 7501-10000m- 5 points 10001+- 6 points ALSO you can receive points for HOW you did the docking as well, a few of these are listed below and can earn you more points! Did you use a guide rail to help trap your port to dock?- 1 point If not,- 3 points Did you use FAR?- 2 points There are a few more rules to go over as well. 1. Mods are allowed. (Don't abuse mechjeb or thermal) 2. All targeting assists are allowed as well, but do not help much. 3. Pictures are necessary. 4. You get to count up your points, have evidence of them. 5. Debug/Persistence editing/Cheat menu NOT ALLOWED 6. ENJOY YOURSELF! Happy acing I will be working on some graphics that you can add to your signatures shortly! LEADERBOARDS 1.2001kraft-6.5 points 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8.
  10. Im not sure if this is how it works but I am very skinny person, so my body itself is one giant radiator, and I get cold quickly!
  11. So, is there a real reason that SpaceX didn't change to use hydrolox in their upper stage to gain more DeltaV? I'm guessing it's that the tanks take up too much space for it to work well, trying to learn about these things is fun
  12. Whilst taking a look on SpaceX's website for the Falcon Heavy rocket, I noticed the comparison between the Falcon Heavy and the Delta IV. The Delta IV is a bit larger in size but has a bit more than half of the payload capacity of the projected payload tonnage of the Falcon Heavy. This may have been discussed before, I'm not sure. My pondering is, why does the Falcon Heavy, despite it's size and similar staging, have more payload capacity than the Delta IV heavy? Is it because the Falcon Heavy uses RP-1/LOX as its fuel as compared to the LOX/LH fuel mixture of the Delta IV? If so then what is the purpose of using the LOX/LH fuel mixture in the Delta IV when you can seemingly get more payload capacity from using RP-1? I think this topic is pretty good for discussion, and I'm curious as to why scientists would engineer a vehicle with such a fuel mixture when you can get more payload capacity from using RP-1. Maybe its just me thanks in advance!
  13. I wouldn't make too much of it, as I believe they are using a commercial company to do so, but this has large implications for the future. To me, the idea of Mexico even considering doing this is a pretty neat thing, another country to put enthusiasm back into space I suppose.
