My name is @Dr. Kerbal. And this is the Jool Diver Challenge. In this challenge you have to go and explore the depths of Jool. Collect all the science and reports you can, and return home. You can go all the way down below 0m of Jool Sea Level or just scratch the atmosphere. This challenge has modes for everyone! From the hardcore pros to complete beginners! But before we start with the modes we are goin to go over some rules to prevent cheating. Because this challenge can be easily done with cheats. Rules: No mods that can affect the fuel in the craft. No HyperEdit. No part mods. Please stay stock. Kraken drives are allowed but only for altitudes under 10,000m. You cannot use Kraken drives for anything. All submissions submitted before 6/7/2021 12:00 PM will still be counted as not braking any rules. Part clipping is allowed You may do this challenge with other challenges Dont use the cheat menu You may bugs or glitches to you advantage to reach certain heights in Jool You can send a Kerbal (s) or a probe SSTOs are allowed Rockets are allowed No mods (expect for visual mods and for mode: Modifications of Kerbal ) The PROBE OR KERBAL(S) MUST RETURN! Docking is allowed Orbital assembly allowed in orbits lower than 100km at Kerbin and you may only launch 3 ships to build your craft.

All submissions before 7/6/2021 at 12:00 AM will still be accepted. Rule Update Log: Note: All time is in military time. Go here for more info: http://militarytimechart.com/ RU1: You cannot use Kraken drives for anything. All submissions submitted before 6/7/2021 24:00 GMT will still be counted as not breaking any rules. This was changed because a suggestion and consideration has proven that using Kraken drives has defeated the point of the mission. RU2: Rule 14 was changed. Before it said this: Orbital assembly allowed in orbits lower than 200km at Kerbin. However it has now been decreased to 100km and you can only launch 3 ships for this orbital assembly. All submission submitted 6/10/2021 24:00 GMT will still be accepted. RU3: Added rule 16. You may not launch your craft from the Mun Launch Pad (for consoles players). Please use launch pads that are on Kerbin. All submissions that were launched for the Mun Launch Pad will be accepted if there were submitted earlier than 6/10/2021 24:00 GMT.

Then state your mode in the corresponding colors listed in the mode list. That's it. If you need an example here: Badge No badge is available. But one will come soon. The first one who submits first will get a photo from their image or photos used. FAQ Frequently Asked Questions Can I have kerbal(s) sit on a chair during my travel? Yes. What is the maximum/minimum amount of kerbals I can bring? Infinite, as many as you want. What kinds of mods can I use? Only visual mods are allowed. Is there a part limit? No. There is no part limit. How much science do I have to get? Just run all the experiments (expect the seismometer). Can I use planet mods? No. But I will allow the Outer Planets Mod. Please contact me for any other though. How do I contact you? Message me through the KSP forums (Tip: Ping me through the forums message feature.) Is there an age limit? No. Anyone can participate in this challenge. What versions can I play this in? You can play this version from 0.8v to (CURRENT VERSION) Can I play this challenge in the DEMO version of KSP? No, the demo version doesn't have Jool added yet. Is there a maximum amount of submissions I can make? No. You can do this mission as many time you want. Can I make a video of this challenge and monetize it? Yes you can. I'm not sure why you would think I would say no. Can we use MechJeb? Um. This is a hard one. I would say no. I think MechJeb is automated so I will say no. Can we use MechJeb2? Um. This is a hard one. I would say no. I think MechJeb2 is automated so I will say no. Can we use Better TimeWarp? Yes. You can. Can I edit the save file to make it easier? No. You may not edit the planets orbits or position to make this challenge easier. Can I use visual mods? Yes you can. Mods like EVE, PARALAX, and Stock Planet Enhancements are allowed. How can I contact you about the rules and modes? Please message me through the forums and we can work something out. Is this possible? Some of it yes and some of them have never been attempted before (as of May 2021). So you might as well be the first. Where does Jool's atmosphere begins? It begins at 200,000 meters (or 200km) above sea level and 200,000 meters (or 200km) above terrain. What is "km"? The acronym "km" means kilometer. Conclusion I hope you enjoy this challenge. I wait to see the ideas you come up with. And the reason why I submitted this challenge is because. Kerbal Space Program the the community always break something once in a while. Making the impossible, possible. And lets revisit this old friends, and finally shows the Kraken who is boss! Like how we (humankind) went to the Moon. Not because it was easy. Because it was hard. "We choose to go to the Moon! We choose to go to the Moon in this decade and do other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard." - John F. Kennedy Top Submissions: N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A Other Cool Submissions @Austin_Kerman was the first to complete this challenge. The mode was A Green Gas: Go lower than 199,999m but above 150,000m and return and this submitter was the first to do it. It has shown not to break any rules and its clear. What an awesome submission. Very impressive and this shows that this is doable! @Admiral Fluffy Submitted this submission. The submitter dipped into Jool's atmosphere. Impressive still. And shows that anything's are possible. N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A = Not Applicable An image of Jool shining in its all mighty glory. Image made by @AnimatedK using Blender.
  2. What’s hard for you in KSP? I know mine is getting a Minmus encounter. It like the only planet/moon I can’t get too.
  3. What made you play KSP? Well for me, it was through YouTube. I was searching up project StarShot on YouTube and cam across this video: I though this video was a cool animation but then I relized it was a game after this video: Then I immediately bought a copy of KSP on the console. Now I play on PC. And now I make YouTube videos of it.
  4. You have heard of the Solid Fuel challenge right? Where you only use Solid Fuel Rocket Boosters to reach a certain destination right? I am pretty sure you have. And if you did not, search it up. It is a pretty cool challenge and people come up with some impressive stuff. But you clicked on this thread because you wanted to see the Monopropellant Challenge! I know it's a weird thing and it usually doesn't come to mind for most people (I think). Monopropellant is a type of fuel in Kerbal Space Program. It is generally known as fuel for RCS engines. Most RCS engines use monopropellant as their fuel source (except for the Vernor Engine because that uses Liquid Fuel and Oxidizer). In the Monopropellant Challenge you may only use Monopropellant as your fuel. You cannot use Liquid Fuel, Oxidizer, Intake Air, Xenon Gas, or Solid Fuel. As all of these can give you thrust. I will allow Electric Charge. For reaction wheels to function they need Electric Change to operate. But wait a minute Dr. Kerbal! There's a loophole! People could use Ion engines as they use Electric Charge. Well, that loophole has been debunked. Ion engines require Electric Charge and Xenon Gas to function. So, people can't use ion engines. Well what about Kraken Drive? Huh?! Another loophole Dr. Kerbal! Well. For this challenge I have set rules so this challenge stays true to the name. I will not allow Kraken Drives, Liquid Fuel, Oxidizer, Intake Air, Xenon Gas, Solid Fuel, and other fuel sources and parts from mods. Now we have gone over the basics of this challenge I think it's appropriate to list a score board. As certain planets/moons are harder to leave than others. Eve is harder to leave than Minmus. And the Mun is easier to get to than Eeloo. So I have set up a scoreboard key and rules to make the challenge fair. Scoreboard Point Chart: Use this to tell how many points you earn. Planet/Moon/Celestial Body Fly-by Orbit Landing Return Moho 40 45 50 200 Eve 30 35 50 1000 Gilly 35 36 15 150 Kerbin 15 10 5 0 Mun 15 20 25 30 Minmus 15 21 20 30 Duna 30 35 40 50 Ike 31 36 40 55 Dres 40 45 50 60 Jool 60 70 1000 5000 Laythe 70 75 80 100 Vall 65 70 75 95 Tylo 80 85 300 180 Bop 75 77 79 89 Pol 76 79 83 89 Eeloo 90 95 100 100 Near Kerbin Asteroids (NKA) 20 N/A 30 45 Dresstroid 80 N/A 85 90 Comets 85 N/A 90 100 Rules: You may not use Kraken Drives You can not use fuel resources such as Liquid Fuel, Oxidizer, Intake Air, Xenon Gas, and Solid Fuel No part mods suchs as Near Future or Far Future No planet mods such as Beyond Home and Outer Planets Mod You may only use Monopropellant as your fuel source No mods that can affect your craft like Hyper Edit No cheats should be enabled All game settings should be at default settings You can either do a probes or manned mission. This will not affect your total amount of points you receive. Don't use any exploits such as the KAL Controller exploit Admission Guide: In this part the challenge guide book-ish thing. This part will explain to you how to submit your challenge in the correct way so I can recognize it quickly. First lit how many points you scored by using the chart above. Let's say that you went to the Mun and you landed there. You would earn 25 points. But let's say that you returned. Then you would earn 30 points instead. The point is that if you didina flyby, orbit, landing, or return mission you would count these points. However let's say I landed on the Mun and landed on Minmus and returned. I would add the landing (25) for the Mun and add the return mission from Minmus (30) in total you would have 55 points. Admission Example: List What you did: Jool Landing, Eeloo Fly-By, and Laythe Return Total Amount of Points: 5190 points Game Version: 5.9.9 Proof of Completion: (Show or link multiple images or videos of your mission here) Date: 12/31/1800 Username: @THISUSERDOESNOTEXIST Admission Form: List What you did: Total Amount of Points: Game Version: Proof of Completion: Date: Username: Badge: Commonly Asked Questions: Why are parts mods not allowed? I don't allow part mods because it makes it harder to track what fits in the rules are not. Why do you not allow HyperEdit? Because it affects your craft and people could cheat with it refueling theri craft. It's basically infinite fuel and it's cheating. Can I do this on older versions? Yes you may. Can I do this on consoles? Yes you may. You may not use any exploit such as the KAL Controller throttle exploit. If you have any other questions please ask through the messaging feature of the Kerbal Space Program forums or post it on my user profile. Thank you and enjoy this challenge. Cool Submissions: @Vanamonde submitted a rocket that only used monopropellant booster that was able to get to Minmus. Congrats and awesome mission. It may have not returned but this is KSP. His submission was submitted on the old thread of this challenge so it abides by the rules. He scored 20 points according the scoreboard on this thread. Notice: This is a revised and enhanced edition of this thread. The challenge had some unclear point sysytem and confusing rules. This is a improved and clarified version of this. Want your submission to be here? Please let me know through the KSP Forums messaging system or send me your request on my user profile. Thank you and have a safe flight! Have a suggestion on the rules? Please let me know through the KSP Forums messaging system or send me your request on my user profile. Thank you and have a safe flight!

  6. Welcome to the forum game, did you know. The point of this game is to post a fact about a random thing, time, or anything. Post your random facts here. And remember to follow all forums guidelines. Ill start first. Did you know songs from 1924 are copyright free now?
  7. Hi Squad. I noticed that the IX-6315 "Dawn" Electric Propulsion System hasn’t seem to have a part revamp (that I know of). The small ion engine maybe small and slow but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t deserve a part revamp. The small ion engine could use some variants and a texture revamp. There are many variants I could think of like a different color or some of the inside components show more. Or anything. The little engine could use a part revamp. It would be nice to see this small ion engine have a revamp.
  8. Remember when Squad did a texture revamp of the Mainsail engine. You know the giant engine for the 2.5 parts. Well, do you miss the old texture? You can bring the old texture without mods or going back to old versions. This is possible to do on console fo console players. First go into the Space Plane Hanger or the Vehicle Assembly Building. Then look through the pre-made crafts. Scroll down or up in both tabs until you find a picture of a craft with the old Mainsail texture. The craft in the VAB or SPH should have the old Mainsail Texture (unless Squad fixed that already). If not there you go! The old Mainsail engine at your disposal!
  9. I will post all my missions that I did. Sorry if I don’t have any screenshots of craft files available. Alll time is on Kerbin time. Luna: Rover, Mun, Mission Duration: 33 years, Goal: Explore Mun and Recover Muna Mission Log (below): The mission of the small rover Luna started on a launch pad with a rocket capable of going to the Mun. The rocket has around 5,097 m/dv. Just a regular launch and then I burned for the Mun. I arrived at the Mun with a periapsis of 9.8 km. Got my self into a low Munar orbit. However I have a bad communications network around the Mun. So I had to wait 5 months to all the probes to align. Once the probes aligned I started the landing burn. I didn’t have long as the probes moved fast. After 10 minutes I was 4 meters above the surface when I lost communications. The craft feel and Boom! The landing equipment broke but the rover was fully fun cation all and in one piece. I explored the nearby craters and used the robotic scanner to scan some rocks. Soon I will drive the rover to Munar a rover that ends it’s mission when the solar panels broke. The rover is over 100 km away so it might take a while. Status: Fully Functional, All Dqiupment is Safe, Landed on Mun, Mission is 68% complete, life expentancy: at least 30 years
  10. The Oscar-B Fuel Tank hasn’t seem to have a texture revamp. (That I know of). So I’m wandering Squad, can the Oscar-B Fuel Tank get a texture revamp. The texture currently is kinda boring compared to the other parts. I’d like to see the small fuel tank shine a little more with some new color variants, texture revamps, and other things to make the part look better. So please Squad, please revamp this part. It would nice to see this little part have some attention. -Sorry for the terrible spelling and grammer. I’m fixing it.
  11. The problem with science is KSP is that they science report will always be in the same weather the experiment is being blasters by rocket exhaust or heating in the atmosphere. Like why doesn’t a Kerbal EVA report is still the same weather that Kerbal is being blasted by rocket exhaust? Since KSP2 seems will have weather (I’m not sure and I could be totally wrong and incorrect) I’m hoping EVA reports and science experiments will be different. Because it does not make sense when the Mystery Goo is being blasted by Nerv Atomic Rocket exhaust and it the same as not being blasted by exhaust. So I’m hopping the report will be different depending on circumstances. Here I have listed the examples below. Kerbal on EVA (Kerbin) while NOT being blasted by exhaust: I don’t think a spacesuit was nessecary for getting here. Kerbal on EVA (Kerbin) while BEING blasted by exhaust: I is very hot and is something burning? As you may see I want to see that science, crew, and EVA reports are different depending on a circumstance. I think this would, be really fun and interesting. It would add some randomness and seeming to look l8e the game knows what the player is doing. Connection to player a bit more, maybe (I really don’t know). Depending also on the circumstance the science points would probably vary. I will list some more examples for more reference below: Thermometer in Deep Space (NOT touching anything hot): It it very cold and chilly here. Any heat is from the rocket. Thermometer in Deep Space (BEING EXPOSED TO ROCKET EXHIST): It is very hot in the rocket exhaust and it barely noticing the coldness of space. Earthquake Detecter (STILL and on Mun (Landed)): There a little Mun quake!!! Earthquake Detecter (Knocked over and bouncing on surface of Mun): All we can detect is the experiment bouncing! This isn’t an earthquake! Surface Sample (Not blasted by rocket exhaust)(Minmus): It looks edible. Just like mint ice cream. Surface Sample (Being blasted by rocket exhaust)(Minmus): It is a little black. It was burnt by the exhaust. I definitely would not eat it. These are three examples I have listed (above if you did not notice). I really hope the developers of Kerbal Space Program 2add this little feature in. I personally think it makes the game more interesting and it a sense that the player can feel like what the player is doing. A little connection (I really don’t know, I’m not a doctor who monitors behavior of people). I really hope they add this feature in KSP2 but if they don’t that’s fine. - Dr. Kerbal
  12. This is a challenge where you can only use 3 types of parts. This doesn’t not exclude Command Pods, Prbe Cores or anything else. You may only use 3 types of parts. Certain parts will be scored better depending on situations. Look below: Part Point (based on hat type of parts most used) 0.625m parts: 20 points 1.25m parts: 10 points 2.5m parts: 5 points 3.75m and 5m parts: 3 points Planet/Moon Points (visiting a planet will require to at least enter its SOI and return/ comments and astroid just require the craft to touch the astroid or comet): Mun: 10 points Minmus: 10 points Duna: 15 points Ike 15 points Dres: 20 points Jool: 30 points Jool Moons (individually): 25 points Eeloo: 40 points Eve: 20 points Gilly: 15 points Moho: 23 points Astroid: 30 points Magic Astroid: 35 points Comet: 35 points Interstellar comet: 40 points Gravity Pionts: -1 G: -10 pionts 1 G: 0 Pionts 2 G: 2 pionts 3 G: 3 points 4 G: 4 points 5 G: 5 points 6G: 6 pionts 7G: 7 pionts 8 G: 8 pionts 9 G: 9 pionys 10 G: pionts Easter Egg Pionts: Extra 10 points NOTICE! THEIS A PAERT LIMIT AND THAT LIMIT IS 10 PARTS!!! Add these pionts together to get to your grand total. And if you can impress me. You will get an additional 1 point. WINNERS: 1. (No first place winner) 2. (No second place winner) 3. (No third place winner) please provide picture, videos, descriptions so I can count your pionts and confirm them. And also I just want to see what people biuld! I’m just interested. *NOTICE! No modded parts. All stock parts including DLCs (DLCs allowed)
  13. I’m just curious to know if there will be a dev diary for the planets in KSP2. I’m just curious on how many new planets there are. And what they look like. I also want to see the original KSP planets like Eve or Minmus. You know. I’m just curious I after seeing pre alpha gameplay I mean, I just can’t imagine how wonderful the planets would look. I mean Jool looks like it like in real life!
