Your objective: Build the smallest rocket possible that can get into orbit. There are 2 categories, each with 2 sub-categories. I will judge each rocket in 2 separate ways, cost and mass. Each one will have its own leader board. The rules are simple. No cheating with Hyperedit, debug menu, ect. The rocket must be completely stock. No mods that alter physics and no clipping parts to exploit physics. The rocket can be manned or unmanned, each will have their own leader board. Make sure to post pictures showing your rocket in flight and showing it's mass and cost. ALSO: The rocket must be a rocket, not a cross between a rocket and a plane. It must take off from the launch pad ,and have other rocket qualities. https://imgur.com/a/swbkZaD This is my entry LOWEST MASS ROCKETS Unmanned: 1. Pds314- 0.855 tonnes 2.

Ironbars- 4423 kerbucks Notes- zolotiyeruki, if you can find some screenshots of that old craft, I will gladly accept it! Pds314 maintains the top 2 spots for lightest and cheapest unmanned crafts. TheFlyingKerman holds the cheapest manned rocket. Artharan has almost stolen every spot for the lightest manned rocket, taking 1, 2, 3, and 4! Will he be able to take 5? Keep up the amazing work everyone!
Hello, everyone! I have been wondering, what's the cheapest thing, that can go to orbit. I have tried a few designs myself, but I want to compare them to others. The challenge is to spend the least funds to go to LKO (low kerbin orbit). It must be at least a bit over 70 km on periapsis. Recovering parts doesn't count. I would like the vesels to be from 1.11, but other versions are accepted. There will be two main ctegories: modded and stock. Stock: 1. 690 by Dvader 2. 1171 by camacju 3. 4. 5. Modded: 1. 310 by Jokpau Gaming 2. 1137 by jimmymcgoochie 3. 4. 5. You need to post a picture of your craft in VAB/SPH, in flight and in orbit with periapsis shown. Craft files would be appreciated too! No cheats, of course. I will edit this post to add winners and explain something, if it's not clear yet. Good luck!
Hi guys, I picked this game up on the last Steam 75% sale and it's really addicting. I'm having a blast. I started a career, and landed on the Mun for the first time yesterday, which was so cool. My first lander had all the science I had unlocked with it, and the full price to get it there was around 43k. This feels so expensive since my Mun orbiter for tourists is only 25k. How cheap can I get a science lander to the Mun to hit the biomes? Any thoughts on my design that I can improve? Thanks! Here are some images. https://imgur.com/a/uv6Ent0 I can get to orbit with boosters, and empty the lower stage tank to get Lower orbit, then burn for Mun intercept. If a poor launch, I might be a couple hundred Dv short. If I land without mistakes, I have 300-400dv of fuel left in lander, but if I have troubles, I can easily burn through that.
this was quite a challenge, i forot that in order to get 100% recovery on parts they need to be at KSC, i had to get creative.
