  1. Hello, i just wanted some ideas for Duna lander, becuase i tried to make one, but all of my attempts were unsuccesfull. The final product is wobbly as hell and the landing struts are very unstable, engine efficienty is very poor. I want a lander that can fit and dock. Don't worry i have both DLC's because i'm attracted to this game! I got to the mun like 67 times and it's getting boring, so i wanna go to Duna, but my spacecraft is very unstable, wobbly and inefficient. You can give me any ideas you want, i am an ace at maneuvering and redenzvous. Thank you!
  2. I want to make an elevator on a vertically landed spaceship that can lower my kerbonauts and vehicles down to the surface safely, like the artist rendering below of future SpaceX Starship missions. Any ideas on how I can do this? From the mods I've searched, nothing comes close to building something that looks like this, and I'm not much of a modder myself :( Any ideas welcome!
  3. Welcome to the development thread for Making Alternate History! Inspired by the alternate history universe of Eyes Turned Skyward, this pack brings you a set of stock-a-like Artemis / Altair landers and habitats complete with all the parts necessary for a voyage to another solar body. Making Alternate History was previously labeled as 100% dependent upon Textures Unlimited, however this is revised and Textures Unlimited is now only required if you would like to use the Mk1 and Mk3 Habitat modules. At time of posting,

  5. I got a little red dress in the mail the other day, and it made me hate 2020. I got all done up, put my red dress on, ordered take out from a nice place, and I built this ship. It's a shuttle/lander with a little over 6km/s dv. I built it a while ago, but I've been working on it off and on.... So here is: Little Red Ship P.S. To be brutally honest, I had a lot more fun building this thing than I've had on my last couple dates.

  7. you have lander a lander on the mun and return it kerbin it has to deploy a big mobile base or 100 tones. it can be built in 1.10 and later has to be 100% stock dlcs can be used. it has to also be able recover the mobile base.
  8. Hello dear community! During my career games I have designed many crafts but few survived the game they were initially made. Today I present my LITHOPPER (the one which jumps on a big rock) in this video. It can be built with lvl6 technologies. You can find the craft in this shared drive. It will be posted later on in Kerbalx.
  9. Hey! Recently, I've been messing around with using Ion engines powered by fuel cells. As it happens, the combined ISP of ion engines powered exclusively by fuel cells is a pretty respectable 1293 seconds. One large fuel cell can power two ion engines, so I built an all-purpose crew vehicle that uses 16 large fuel cells and 32 ion engines, allowing all 32 of them to be run at full throttle for as long as one's heart desires, and at any distance or occlusion to the Sun. It also comes with RCS thrusters and a forward mounted docking port. The command module has the standard decoupler, heat
  10. Hello! Today, I've got a new toy. Everyone has made a basic orbiter with command module return capabilities, usually using the trusty ol' heat shield and parachutes, but I decided to try to build an orbiter that can land using a set of extendable wings, much like one of the proposals for the Gemini Program: Introducing the Mallard CSM-W: The Mallard CSM-W is a standard LKO crew module. The launch vehicle can place the orbiter into an equatorial LKO, and the orbiter has a few hundred m/s of on-orbit maneuvering fuel. The orbiter also c
  11. Autonomous Lander for the Kerbin subsystem with a 3 Crew capacity and 3300m/s of delta V in vacuum. Can be set up in Career game with a Tech level 6 requirement only (for the Cheetah engine and the Mk1-3 Command Pod). Mods used : Restock, Tweakscale and Nebula Decals. Also variants can be set up to bring this lander to other celestial body: here Moho. A dedicated nuclear craft brought the lander at a 500km orbit. Note : the conical fuel tanks which collide with the main cylindrical one have been emptied to prevent
  12. 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
  13. YO! In this time of solitude, I bring to you: M.O.R.P.H.E.U.S. Moho Operational Research Permanent Habitation Experiment Utility Station The KSC has kindly asked Jeb and co. to put together a Moho research base, so this is what I'm told they came up with: To get the job done, we'll need some serious rocketry to get everything into orbit that we need: From left to right: The MORPHEUS Core, the MORPHEUS External Modules, the MORPHEUS Drive Stage, the Verdon S4, the Verdon Crew Habitation Module, and the Moho Lander.

  17. So I've landed on Duna and I have a contract telling me to get some science from a Duna Sand Dune. I've found pictures and such on the web, but I'm still unable to find one. Is there a specific biome I have to be in (I'm in the Duna Midlands), or something like that? Here's a link for an image (I don't know how to properly insert images): https://imgur.com/SISCsHN SOLVED: I have found one. It was sorta glitched into a normal rock. It seems to look more like a rock with a dune texture. They stand out cuz they're slightly lighter than the rocks and surface of Duna (t
  18. I am planning to rescue Jeb, Val, and Bill off of Eve with this lander: https://imgur.com/a/MSKREIv https://kerbalx.com/MunsterIII/Mona-Lisa-III-Lander I am testing it out, and it seems to work great until 1100 meters. Most of the parachutes are deployed by then and everything is going smoothly until the game freezes. The next thing that happens is the entire lander is fairly evenly distributed over an area of about 10 km. I have no clue what is happening. Any ideas? Lander description: Double layer asparagus pancake for ascent. Heat shield on top and bottom fo
  19. Even though I have 15,000 excess science.. it's not enough. I found I had not yet landed on any of the Jool moons. Bad Kerbals! So, i decided I would take a lab with me, and make a single lander that can hit all the moons except Laythe (requires a specialized design). Tylo being the biggest challenge, because of its very high gravity/size, it's like landing on Kerbin without an atmosphere. So I designed a lander with some jettisonable fuel, with the idea I would go to Tylo FIRST, and then wouldn't need those tanks for Vall, Pol, or Bop. I would bring my lab with me as an
  20. 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 boost
  21. ISRO launched Chandrayaan 2 (chandra=moon, yaan=vehicle) aboard a GSLV- mkIII on 22nd July. Youtube link here. Unmanned Orbiter-Lander-Rover mission to Moon/Mun's South Pole. All upper stage modules should be be solar powered, Orbiter must be in a low, circular and polar orbit. Lander (Vikram) carrying the rover must land in a crater near the south pole. Rover (Pragyan) should be housed inside the lander and must have a drill and seismograph.(EDIT: surface exploration & science parts) For those wanting a challenge: As it is an ISRO mission, bu
  22. I built a massive lander for the moon which was attacked by a kraken while landing. While landing, I deployed the bottom stage (14 Jumbo-64s and 7 mainsails) to eject the lander (2 X200-32s, mainsail, hitchiker, Mk1-3pod, and landing gear). What I expected was that the stage would disconnect and the lander would fire the mainsail and land some distance away. What happened was that the lander sank rapidly into the bottom stage, and when it was almost all the way in it registered that there was a collision. My kerbal in the hitchiker went splat and the two in the command pod got launched
  23. Ok so here’s the deal (very small font to fit a lot of words) What you need to do is design a mun lander that can go to the mun and back to kerbin. (optional) You need to have the following: ”Terrier” engine FT-400 fuel tank (OX and LF) Mk1 command pod Inline reaction wheel Extra external fuel tanks etc. you get the idea You also need a rocket that can get into a 75,000 meter orbit around kerbin that carries the lander The rest you can do on your own! Thanks for reading!
  24. After having huge CoM issues on the first HLV, I decided to create an entirely new model, the HLV2. CoM issues have been resolved and in the process I think I figured out what went wrong with the first model. Hope to correct and publish that one too. So here it is, the Konstellation HLV. Another quick update: Added the agricultural, hab and science/Comms modules. Amongst others, enjoy:) PS. Texturing still sucks but it is improving:) UPDATE: Added the transfer stage and some more texturing. Download: Spacedo
