  4. To: [email protected], @nyrath Dear Mr. Chung, I have been a user of your website for quite a while. However, I’ve stumbled onto a virtually unknown piece of Red Atomic Rockets history that I’d like to share with you. I’ll stick mostly to direct translation of sources to avoid putting my spin onto it. So, there I was trawling through the full list of Energomash rocket engines at http://www.npoenergomash.ru/dejatelnost/engines/, trying to make sense of their classification scheme. I knew RD-1xx were kerolox, RD-2xx were hypergolic, RD-3xx involved fluorin
  5. A month ago I made a map of Kerbin. At first it was just a map but as I began deciding to write stories about KSP, I decided I needed more stuff. So I began writing a history and developing the Kerbal society. You can use this history in your own works but I do ask that you credit me if you do. Here is the map - (Also a work in progress) I am open to suggestions and help as it will make this map even better. A massive thank you to @Pds314 for these amazing color maps (all the maps are located here): TABLE OF CONTENTS: (Will add links as pages are created) Maps
  6. Hallo! Welcome to the thread. If you're new to it, welcome aboard! If you're old to it, still- welcome aboard! I've included a "Table of Contents-like" thing to make navigation easier. You can use this for whatever you need: pictures, books, schoolwork maybe, and much more! Here's everything by month: (It starts with July 16 right underneath this) August: http://forum.kerbalspaceprogram.com/index.php?/topic/143974-this-day-in-spaceflight-history/&do=findComment&comment=2700011 September: http://forum.kerbalspaceprogram.com/index.php?/topic/143974-this-day-in-spacefl
  7. this thread is just a place to show off my historical (and current) mission and craft recreations this is an orbital version of a mercury redstone rocket dubbed the "Mercury Redstone Advanced"
  8. KSP 1.4.1 and Making History on Windows 10, 64 Bit: and Linux Mint 18.3 x86_64 So I started the first of the MH missions, "Dawn of the Space Age" and built the first rocket, launched it and so on. Then I quit the game, started it again and wanted to continue the mission where I left. Unfortunately, this will not work and you are placed in map view with a focus around the "sun" (shouldn't that be Kerbol?) and the date suddenly is: Year 999, Day 499 - 05:59:59. Also there is no way to access the menu in order to leave map view (e.g. select Tracking Station or Space Center).
  9. Are the new parts from the Making History DLC available in career mode? I am having a difficult time finding a straight answer on this, and I would like to know before I purchase it. Thanks.
  10. So, i was think that the Making History expansion, more specifically the Mission Builder can change the KSP challenges. Users (and Squad) can make challenges in the form of misions that you can play. What do you guys think about it?
  11. 60 years to the day, came a sound that shook the world. beep...beep...beep... Sputnik 1 - long gone but your legacy lives on.
  12. A long time ago, on a Vbulletin forum long gone away... The KSP forum was about to be switched over to IPS4, many changes were announced, and among them, was the announcement that the blog feature would be eliminated. This course of action resulted in the deletion of @HarvesteR's old 'dev blags', these highly valuable blogs became lost to the community (So far as I'm aware, if it turns out they weren't actually deleted, I'm sorry.) Luckily, I downloaded as many of the old blogs as I could, and now, I'll share them with you. https://www.dropbox.com/s/of4cgm5mrkztsuh/KSP Dev Blogs
  13. Since there's no official storyline in ksp, the history of kerbal. So why don't we discuss about it? Let's construct, verify, and debate on theories! Any theory is welcome, if it has sufficient proof. Also, any reasonable suggestions are greatly appreciated! (If there's similar thread with this, please let me know!) Rules - (Again) Reasonable suggestions is desirable. - Discussion on topic: While constructing a theory, you can discuss on it here and flesh it out. It wouldn't be documented. - To count as a theory, it should meet the following conditions:
  14. Is anybody else interested in the upcoming game War of Rights? It's a Civil War FPS with an emphasis on company-sized movements.
  15. So, what I understand about the situation: we (Canada) had an all-Canadian interceptor that could easily be compared with the F-35 Lightning in terms of speed, weapons capacity and maneuverability. This was a plane well ahead of its time. Yet, the project was dumped in 1959, and not only did this design lose its potential but the company A. V. Roe went out of business. Was this the right thing to do? Now, I realize that one of you will see the tags and wonder "what history presentation"? That is none of your business. I put this topic here because: 1) Personal help 2) I know the
  16. I'm sure many others have fond memories of the various Kerbal History threads (and perhaps some less fond memories...), but as I recall they were all plagued by one problem above all others: They kept starting at the dawn of civilization and prophesying that the "current" year was some number like 5000, and as a result we ended up with silly figures like the Jebediah being 3000 years old, and also we missed out on important events in prehistory. So here's my go at it. In this edition we start at the current year, i.e. Year 1, Day 1, 0h, 0m as displayed whenever one of us takes control of
  17. This day in history. 1921 - Goddard begins liquid rocket experiments. - . Nation: USA. Related Persons: Goddard. Robert H. Goddard experimented with liquid oxygen and various liquid hydrocarbons, including gasoline and liquid propane as well as ether, as rocket fuel, under a grant by Clark University. He concluded that although oxygen and hydrogen possessed the greatest heat energy per unit mass, that liquid oxygen and liquid methane offered greatest heat value of combinations which could be used without considerable difficulty. But, he said, "the most practical combination appears to be
  18. Tomorrow, the 12th of April, will be the 55th anniversary of Yuri Gagarin's historic flight into orbit. On that day in 1961, he "slipped the surly bonds of earth" in the truest sense possible, and joined the pantheon of immortal heroes of mankind. Like Achilles, he will be remembered as long as men and women walk this earth, and perhaps beyond. And, in the true style of heroes, when his life came to an end seven years later, he died the death of Icarus, in the cockpit with the stick in his hand. Which certainly beats dying in an old folks home with a tube up your nose, wrinkled, forgotten
  19. Chapter 01 - The Earliest Days of Science Generally considered to be the first great thinker, Aristotle Kerman (his friends called him Ari) had many ideas that would later prove to be correct. He discovered the Mün, and first proposed the famous Spaghetti Theorem (legend states that he was quite hungry at the time). His brilliant proposition: "Go up, then sideways a bit, and you ain't comin' back durn for a heck of a long time!" Next time: Nooton Kerman and the Apple Incident
  20. Here is perhaps the oldest sci-fi movie ever made: A Trip To The Moon (Le Voyage Dans La Lune) from 1902!! One can laugh at how they depict the moon but as someone else correctly stated: This movie is closer in time to the French revolution than to 2016! 67 years would pass until Eagle landed on the moon in 1969. As for the colours, believe it or not but the colours were added back then, believed to be lost, found and restored so enjoy. Now as for the purpose of this thread. If you have some oddity of a document related to the dream of space travel, the more obscu
  21. Suppose you travel back in time and decide you want to build a rocket to reach orbit. The rocket merely has to reach a moderately stable orbit on its own; there are no payload requirements in particular. Suppose further that you have access to all the world's knowledge at the present day. Finally, suppose that you are able to convince the dominant world power of that era to assist you in collecting and refining raw materials. What is the earliest point in history at which you could reasonably be able to construct an orbital rocket?
  22. So as long I've been a space geek, I've heard about "Operation Paperclip" where the US grabbed German V-2 rocket parts and scientists including Dornberger and von Braun at the end of WWII. That's all I've known about it though... I've never heard any details. I found this book "Operation Paperclip" by Anne Jacobsen ISBN 978-0-316-22103-0 and it's finally the history of it. I didn't know that it was a dozen different semi-conflicting top secret operations to capture German knowledge in order to either keep it from the Soviet Communists, or help end the war with Japan. It's not just rocket
  23. Hello everyone, I'm Captain Nakou and I have a little Youtube channel. I'm not here to advertise my (very little) channel, but because I'm looking for some material : In my episodes, I introduce games, independent or not, and I like to introduce them in context. I talk about what the developers did before, why they've created the game, stuff like that. So that's what I am looking for here : Is there anywhere here, or in the blog, the stories of "How KSP was made?" "How Squad got the idea?" "What push them to make this awesome game?". I can't find those information so I came h
