  1. Today I sent a science probe around Corellia. It was supposed to go into orbit around its innermost moon, but my fuel calculations were incorrect, and I had to settle for a flyby of two other moons. 2500 science points were gathered !
  2. Very interesting ! Reminds me a lot of Orbiter.
  3. Manned and Rendez-vous mission As soon as the celebrations ended, the Space Program got back to work. NASA has been mandated to put a man in low Kerbin orbit. The Titan-II launcher will carry Alan and Anthony Kerman and in a Gemini capsule to a stable 105 km orbit. -- However, a bold proposal emerged from the British Space Agency : a transponder probe could be sent for the Gemini to rendez-vous with, thus simultaneously testing the feasibility of manned missions, and orbital rendez-vous. Thus, the Orb Transponder will be launched ahead of time to guide the Gemini capsule. Supplementary pictures in dedicated mission album : https://imgur.com/a/c1gasYL --- As the Orb Transponder reaches orbit, the Titan II wastes no time to complete launch procedures. Orbit has been reached ! Alan and Anthony Kerman just became the first Kerbals to orbit the beautiful blue planet. The world cheers yet again, and UN Secretary-General Dag Kerman personally calls the crew to congratulate them on their achievement. -- The mission is not yet over though, and careful orbital maneuvers close the gap between the transponder and the capsule. Alan Kerman makes a close examination of the transponder, as he marks the first Kerbal EVA session. After an unpleasant but uneventful reentry, Alan and Anthony Kerman are to be recovered soon, for some Slippist Root Beer !

  4. The Common Journey It is Year 0. After the Lukewarm War, the great powers of Kerbin have banded together to rebuild their world. The United Nations has been entrusted with the goal of bringing Kerbalkind to prosperity and peace. At the tip of the spear, the United Nations Kerbal Space Program has begun investing into the distant future. -- The Kerbal Space Program has only three contributing members so far : the United States, the Russian Federation and the United Kingdom. As the program grows, other countries and organizations are expected to join. -- The first foray into space exploration has been mandated to the Russian Federation. Its "Sputnik" spacecraft will be the first test to determine the viability of orbital flight, as suborbital flight had been already achieved during the War. Soyuz rocket on the launchpad Launch ! Beautiful view of Jool. All systems nominal. Boosters have been separated. Fairings have opened, and the payload has been released. *beep beep* Sputnik 1 is online ! Mission control erupts into joy and excitement ! Supplementary images in dedicated mission album : https://imgur.com/a/QWSFce5 -- The rudimentary satellite will continue to transmit for several days, but it has just shown the entire world that space travel is indeed feasible. Festivities run wild from Moscow to London to Washington DC, as Kerbalkind just entered a new age, the Space Age.
  5. Hi ! Just here to say that I really, really love the mod and the concept behind it. It's great to be able to explore a system that truly feels alien, with extreme bodies that seem actually perfectly realistic. It's a very nice change of pace from many other great planet packs, but with the usual Earth, Mars, Venus analogues etc. Thank you !
  6. Yes! It works in low orbit Kerbol, but I haven't managed to make it work around Keles, nor Vael and Mirn, the three gas giants from the Kirb star in the Nova Kirbani System, in addition to Jool. Is that normal ? Edit : checked all the gas planets in the Nova Kirbani pack, none seem to provide
  7. Hello ! Could you tell us around which planets the KSS Particle Scoop can be used ? I haven't managed to collect anything around Jool for example, even with the scoop deployed, and with empty Liquid Helium 3 tanks, and Electric Charge available. Thanks!
  8. Just to notify : KerbCam (cartman's recompile v0.18) does not work with KSP 1.4.2
  9. Nero is the best god-damn looking planet I've ever seen in KSP modding ! Congrats my man !
  10. A mod called Principia replaces the stock orbital physics with fully realistic N-body orbital physics, so you might want to take a look at that
  11. Is the fact that the solar panel's power output are significantly diminished an intended feature ? If so, is there a way to remove that feature ? Thanks !
