I was wondering what is the delta v for going into orbit and the specific thrust to weight ratio and medium to small lander examples? I am new to Eve but I have been to other planets though. I have sent probes and failed Landers btw.
Hello friends and fellow Eve enthusiasts, today I want to present to you the (still ongoing) mission "Adam to Eve", as it was for me the very first time I have ever seriously tackled Eve (although I didn't get any children out of that). I have been playing this game since 2013, but I have rarely left Kerbin's SOI except for establishing a small colony on Duna or visiting the Jool area. This time, in a career save, I thought "eh love it", mainly because the game wants me to visit Eve before Duna. Glad I am not a newb who would probably be shaken deeply by the realization of a proper
DADV-1. (Ver 1.1) 4 seat Duna Ascent & Descent Vehicle. Can be used in conjuction with the DBC01(Duna Base Camp) space station to land to the surface of Duna and return to orbit, refuel and repeat. Features a habitation module and a science lab. It is recomended you use the HOYO docking port which fits the DADV nose cone. Find it here. Included is a decoupler that can be used to attach the ship to the AresV LonesomeRobots rocket so you can put the ship to orbit and send it to Duna. Find it here. Alternatively it will fit any 7.75m rocket. For the IVA players, in order for the hu
So @Nucleartaxi created a novel challenge: get Jeb to Eve and back, using only Oscar-B fuel tanks! Of course, given the high part counts when you're trying to build something with the tiniest propellant tanks in the game, only the lander itself needed to be restricted to Oscar-Bs, though there are higher levels for making the transfer stage and/or lifter with Oscar-Bs only. I decided to just do the transfer stage and the lander with Oscar-Bs. In doing so, I think I inadvertently created one of the smallest fully-stock no-hacks Eve Ascent Vehicles ever...certainly smaller than I've e
