  1. Do you guys have any tips and tricks to build a munar base as efficiently as possible? Recommendations? Tutorials?
  2. Yes, you read it right. The challenge is, to build a fully stock hanging base under one of the Münar Arches. If you think it's hard, yes it it. If you think it's impossible, no it's not. Hanging base (mostly short description): A special kind of artificial structure, which only can be built on the surface of the Mün. The basic idea of a hanging base is, that it attaches itself somehow to one of the three Münar Arches, and hangs down from there. It doesn't really fit in the categories of the surface base or the space station, so it „hangs” between them. However in the Tracking Stat
  3. Hey everyone! This one's so wild, it'll make your head spin! Most of us have tried our hand at building an artificial gravity station, either by building a conventional orbital station with a working centrifuge, or even building an entire spinning 2001-style vessel. Both are wonderful, but what if your Kerbals are going to be spending months on end not in zero gee, but on the surface of a body with a surface gravity less than that of Kerbin, like Moho (g = 2.7 m/s^2)? We can still put a centrifuge to work, but this time it'll be there to provide the additional acceleratio
  4. "Jeb, it's not a skyscraper if you build it somewhere without an atmosphere." "...A spacescraper, it shall be!" The SPACESCRAPER 0 is a fully stock tower. It has office space for 1,540 Kerbals, and can be flown to Minmus and landed in a single go. The launcher can place the tower on a suborbital trajectory, where the tower's 28 Nervas are used to go the rest of the way. Once in space, attitude is controlled via 16 Vernor engines instead of SAS modules due to the insane mass. There's also a small landing pad in between the upper and lower halves of the building to acc
  5. Has anyone had the idea to to try and find a way to use these deployable panels as a method of providing power to bases on the the surface of say like duna. If there is a mod to do this please direct me to it. Maybe i am overthinking it and if not could someone try to do this i would absolutely get that mod. Or if lots of people want this i might make a poll. ----------------------->
  6. I constructed a supersonic cargo plane, I put 4 commercial airplane engines on the wings, and put 2 jet engines to make the mission quick and smooth. it took me about 50 or so minutes to go from the KSP base all the way to the north pole, I landed my cargo plane on the surface of the snow and slowed down, sadly, the rover I attached to the base got stuck in the plane, also when i was taking off after setting the base down, my tail hit the base and made it go sideways, luckily nothing was damaged. as the sky was getting red and black with the last few lights of the sun, I set up electronic equi
  7. I've often wondered what a lunar habitat might be like if it started growing itself with in situ harvested resources. Lunar soil and rock appears to consist mostly of metal oxides and silicates. So, probably one of the very first things a colony with aspirations of becoming self supporting can do, is start excavating additional habitable volume for itself, and constructing bricks and furniture items out of carved stone. In 16% gravity, they would not be particularly bothersome to handle. In terms of processed/man made materials, smelting the regolith to separate the metals
  8. Here’s the challange: build a base on the Mun, and put a space station into orbit around the Mun. Scoring: Score levels Basic Build a Mun base in only one launch, and have nothing fancy max of 3 Kerbals orbiting station is basic, and one piece. Rather Basic Multiple launches, but base components aren’t docked max of 5 Kerbals Station is max of 3 launches. Good Base is multiple pieces, and they’re
  9. We should start a challenge... Let's see how many people can colonize Eve WITHOUT MODS! RULES: 1. NO MODS 2. YOU MUST HAVE A COLONY OF ATLEAST 10 KERBALS THERE 3. YOU MUST SEND THE KERBALS BACK TO KERBIN 4. YOU MUST SHOW PROOF! I am doing this in memory of the Reddit Challenges! :)
  10. A really nice stockalike set of parts specialized for building ground bases anywhere in the Kerbol system. (PLANNED) CONTENTS: A spacious habitation module for your stranded kerbal pioneers ✔ A large ground laboratory for analising samples in loco ✔ A variety of tubes for keeping your base united ✔ Solar panels, because you can't do science in the dark and batteries aren't eternal ✔ A nice command module with a view of the stars above [insert planet here] Ground legs for protecting your base from rough landings PRE-RELEASE WHEN? When I finish the co
  11. So I really want to land a mining base on Minmus but when I try to land the ship spins out of control because the engines are not placed right. I use the center of mass tool to see where they should go, but the engines are never spaced right. It's getting pretty frustrating. I started to make my bases smaller and smaller until it's basically just a drill and a tank, plus all the electrical stuff and radiators. Any tips?
  12. so pretty lately I have a problem while constructing my Duna base there is a random spazz out-Kraken attack when these conditions are met: 1.when something hit the base with force 2 m/s or more 2.sometimes when docking something at my base 3.always when the gravity disabled (alt + f12 menu) firstly I see the problem when I connected two (via docking ports on the ground)base modules after landing , i use the planetary base mod with kerbalism life support for these bases i also use ksp 1.5.1 mods: KSP: 1.5.1 (Win64) - Unity: 2017.1.3p1 - OS: Windows 10 (10.0.0) 64b
  13. So, say that i have a lander/surface base on Eeloo. Outer planets mod moves it so it becomes a moon of Sarnus. Would my craft just be moved with it, would they dissapear or would it corrupt my save? Has anybody tried that yet? Help, Lusbax.
  14. I have a launch window for Eeloo coming up in about 120 in game days, and I am considering sending a mobile ground base all the way out there. The question is would it be worth it. I've noticed there are a few new biomes that I haven't observed yet, and the dwarf's terrain is flat enough to make long range drives worth it, but the distance from Kerbol makes solar power useless. So to power the electric wheels I'd need either a metric f*ckton of NUK's and fuel cells, or need to experiment with alternative propulsion methods. As I'm typing this I just thought of using NERV's to push it a long th
  15. Release v0.1 (Beta) Hi guys!! Here's some work i'v beem on this weekends! It's some "compact" version of a moon base fully functional, with few parts and functional as hell!! Only have 3 models until now, an Science Lab, a Mining Facility and GreenHouse (because its pretty, that's all... ). This is the ESA concept for a moon base that i really enjoy and like how it looks! This base's features where made for land build with KAS and KIS! Enjoy! Modules: "Interactive Interiors": Science Lab: Gree
  16. Hi all! I've finally built that base! The space program was so busy with multiple launch windows (I had 3 in less than 20 days: Eeloo, Jool and Duna!), countless lucrative contracts and other shenanigans, that I did not have the time to warp much during the Kerbin -> Moho transfer... And then, the landing site was plunged in the dark upon arrival so, Kerbals had to wait in orbit during almost 30 days until it goes back into daylight. The base has more than 300 parts. The fps was terrible, I had to speed up the videos to around 3:1 - 4:1, so that a second lasts a real second. Next
  17. Presenting the Laythe Kosmodrome -- a full-featured space centre producing fuel and supporting exploration of the entire Jolian system, especially Laythe itself, naturally. All craft are also available on KerbalX, at https://kerbalx.com/hangars/29774. - * - Pelican: ro-ro medium cargo/utility SSTO (with Ostrich ISRU unit) The Pelican with the Ostrich ISRU and JUNO MIDGE scout form the core of the Laythe Kosmodrome.

  19. Idea for a moon base. THE MAGIC MOONHUB !
  20. I hope you can forgive me asking a question that has almost certainly been asked many times before, but I don't know the best search terms to find it. This problem has shown up in my other large surface stations using all stock parts. I just downloaded Kerbal Planetary Base Systems and it seems to do the same thing when my base gets big. The only other mods I use are Mechjeb and Kerbal Alarm Clock, so I doubt it's a mod-induced issue. It seems to only happen some of the time and only within the first few seconds after switching to the base. I end up holding my breath hoping it will be st
  21. Hi everyone! I just wanted to share my latest and best creation, real life Lockheed Martin's Mars Base Camp. For those of you who don't know what it is, I recommend you watch this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vLpZUMfIJX0&t=72s You can watch more of my content on my YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCdCcDVpmo_ZRyYNObtKZhfA I had to use many mods (really, MANY mods), so many that I don't even remember which ones are needed for this vessel, I even had to modify some to change part sizes so I can't provide a download link because it would be useless.
  22. Build A Grounded base on every planet and moon (Except jool and Kerbin) in career mode! each base has to have at least 5 kerbals on it at all times, and it has to be a permanent base. they have to be at least 50 meters long and 10 meters high, and a width of 20 meters Cairojack, If you're reading this, This is NOT a single launch Challenge NO CHEATING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  23. I'm new here, Steam says I've played for 13 hours at this point. I'm not playing now because my sinuses have overridden higher brain functions, so please pardon me if this post is lacking in literary or logical content. Planetary bases are, from what I've read, one of the few points that KSP falls short on. Orbital stations seem to be fairly well fleshed out, so I would like to see if there's any player or dev interest in letting us build functional, aesthetically pleasing bases on the ground. Anyone here play Subnautica? If so, then you know what I'm looking for. Well, aside fro
