  1. Ahoy Rocketeers, Seadogs and pilots, I'd like to see how you tackle my little challenge The Challenge: Build the fastest paddle wheel boat, powered by electricity, then get in to the shore, and show us how fast will it go. The Rules: No mods or expansions for the spinny part(bearing), has to be electric Rating: Speed category: by sustainable Vmax only 1. Pds314 @ 18,4m/s Efficiency category: Vmax/power drain while at equator (power drain=power needed to move the boat at Vmax, measure without generating power at the same time, ) 1.Pds314 @ 8.97 In this
  2. So, lets build a plane. Stock. That fits in a mk3 cargo bay. A jet, naturally. So the wings MUST fold. Say they tilt forward 90 degrees and then move back flat against the fuselage. Then it moves on powered wheels. I know. It's absurd. But it's a challenge. Get building!!! Any suggestions, @Azimech and @selfish_meme? Because you two are good at building hinges stock. Is it even possible with ksp physics?
  3. (Edit: If you want to see the part about needing the bearings, go look at the more recent posts. March 9th or later). The time was in the middle of last summer. @Jon144 had built his beautiful helicopters while I had nothing to show for it (We've competed with designs in the past and I usually lost). I didn't really like the fact that stock KSP helicopters had to detach their rotors to work, requiring switching crafts to adjust throttle, and set about on the quest to see if a claw based bearing could work (tests in previous versions showed it couldn't, but I wanted to see if anythi
  4. Well. You guys asked for it! So here it is! So I am now releasing the rotor bearings used to power my popular "Kinchook" stock Chinook helicopter replica to the public. They're very simple and low part count. A single probe core between two fuselages surrounded by Ibeams can hold rotors soundly in place under even the most stressful conditions. The base bearing subassembly is only 14 parts! But don't forget to add struts on your own holding the Ibeams and structural components in place as this is necessary to keep the bearing functioning stable. As you add power and weight to the rotors o
  5. I'm currently trying to make a fully stock bearing (1.0.5) for...a certain evil plan I have, which cannot yet be unveiled...I found a really nice design here, but I have no idea how @JZ6 got the fairing to load whilst open. I would make a custom design based on theirs, but I can't replicate the open fairing without some serious glitching. I don't want to use someone else's bearing directly, because I want my [CENSORED] to be entirely of my own design. Any tips on making a smooth bearing that can carry a moderately heavy load? It needs to be able to withstand the mass of over 20 2x2 structural
  6. The trebuchet was something I never built before. A pivot point seemed to be missing. The first attempt used launch clamps and a whole lot of struts. While it did function problems were stability and transportation. Started searching for bearing and most involved wheels and now with 1.1 those ideas seemed unlikely. @Majorjim thread was the idea for using thermometers and which now had inspired me to push further. The need for a pivot that could handle hundreds of tonnes of mass started me to ponder on using different parts. After shopping through the part list it wa
  7. Behold! The bane of the capitalistic leeches, the T-72, has arrived! This tanks is pimped out with rubber side skirts, view ports, spaced armor, armored primary gunner's sight, convoy light, regular lights, infrared lights, and much more. It's armed with "smoke launchers" (just aesthetic). If the turret gets stuck, just wiggle around a little. XD Don't say it's a design flaw until you've tried to design something like this yourself. I've got a reworked turret and some upgraded track equipped variants in development. https://www.dropbox.com/s/hm34
