  1. Laythe. A land of extremes. Slung around a far-away gas giant in the outer reaches of the Kerbol system, the ocean planet hangs in the cosmos as a jewel for colonization. Deep, expansive waters interrupted only by ignominious freckles of sand paint the planet a pastiche of the aquatic and the arid. Under a blanket of atmosphere, the world sits shrouded in clouds and mystery. It is the only other planet suitable for kerbal life. It will become home to one very lonely kerbal. The Kavalier Mk VI launches on a mission to land a kerbal on the water planet, Laythe. The first
  2. Laythe, I just tried to use your atmosphere to desacelerate me!
  3. LUDLONG KERMAN'S MISSION LOG: Y34D155 - 2H15M (NEPTUNE I) While our space program still sucks at SSTOs, our reserve kerbalnauts are demanding we send people to Laythe. After all, if the Elegail rover is reporting an atmosphere similar to Kerbin's, then it would make a good place to settle. Though our engineers are still working on a feasible method to get people on and off Laythe's surface, Mission Control decided to at least start expanding our Laythe presence - starting with: A space station We have a permanent contract to dock to vessels around Laythe. Retu
  4. Sending a probe to Laythe. server discord: https://discord.gg/EJmz3kE
  5. I tried searching for this on the internet and on this forum, but so far didn't find any discussions on the topic. So here's my story. Skip to the end of the post to see the weird polar caps. So, I recently installed the new KSP 1.9.1. I usually play with Kopernicus planet packs or with Sigma dimensions as stock game does not seem as challenging as it used to be. I usually play with 5 times the scale and 7 times the distance, but Kopernicus is not updated to 1.9.1 so far, so I decidet to play stock with visual/interface mods and no custom parts. I quickly found myself sending rovers to tr
  6. Kerbin is dying. After many failed launches and some silly scientist leaving their nuclear spacecraft on all year to see if it ever gets off the ground, the amount of toxic chemicals that have been put into the atmosphere has started killing all life. The Kerbals, finding out about this, have made a plan to move to another planet - or should I say moon? You have been trusted to act out this plan. Main mission: Make a base on Laythe and bring 10 Kerbals there. Bonus 1: Collect surface samples from Tylo before landing on Laythe. Bonus 2: Collect surface samples of all
  7. Dragonfly mission to the ocean moon Titan Your mission is to create as realistically as possible the upcoming proposed Dragonfly mission to Titan, the ocean moon of Saturn. You can read about it here, its really cool. Basically, you have to fly to Titan (Laythe if playing stock), and set up a self sustaining base with explorer quadcopters that can go out and take samples and readings, then return to the main base. Categories are full Stock (visual and info mods only, nothing that modifies parts or physics in any way) or Modded ( I recommend Firespitter for excellent rotors, alt
  8. Background: There is photographic evidence of life in the deep oceans of Laythe. Kerbal scientists want more conclusive evidence. Funds are short, so private contractors are asked to bid for the chance to change the way Kerbals see their place in the universe. Build a lowest cost mission to Laythe, from KSC launch pad, to the DeGrasse Sea biome, do a Mystery Goo experiment, and bring the science back to Kerbin. The twist is: The Mystery Goo experiment must be done on the DeGrasse Sea floor. Rules: Stock parts (including Making History) only, no mods that change game
  9. Hello, everyone. I've already got a surface robot on Laythe exploring one of the islands. However, if I really want to cover some ground, I need to be able to travel by sea too. Does anyone have any ideas for an unmanned boat I can send to Laythe and cruise around with? If you had something that could travel on both land and water, that would be awesome. Thank you. (PICTURE OF ELEGAIL ON LAYTHE'S SURFACE, NEXT TO THE DELIVERY CAPSULE/RELAY)
  10. I was wondering which of jool's moons to make a challenge for and decided to make a poll to see what the greater ksp community thinks
  11. What is the best way to bring a jet aircraft into Laythe's atmosphere safely? Should I dump as much velocity with rockets as possible before insertion, or dump just enough so my perigee is just above the ocean's surface? I've done the latter once before and it almost ended with a flat spin stall and crash; I managed to land safely some how.
  12. [Verse 1] It's a god-awful small affair To Valentina on her EVA But Gene kerman is yelling, "No!" And her teammates have told her to go But her ship is nowhere to be seen Now she flies through her sunken dream To the place where there is map view And she's hooked by the A.G.U [Pre-Chorus 1] But this all is a saddening bore For she's lived it ten times before She’d soon die a fiery death As they tell her to focus on [Chorus] Kerbals watching Jeb and Bill dock Oh no! Jeb has rammed his ship at Bill.
  13. @Jebediah Kerman Jr. had a problem on his hands when Ribfrod Kerman stepped on his return craft's antenna and put his science return mission in jeopardy. Apparently the contract to return or transmit science data from the surface of Laythe was about to expire in eight Kerbin years, and his return craft was stuck in low Laythe orbit with a critical amount of delta-v remaining. While a direct transfer from Jool to Kerbin was possible, the Kerbin re-entry speed would exceed 6 km/s and fry Ribfrod to a crisp. We weren't able to get the save file because he was on the Console edition. But I to
  14. In my latest career mode game I am planning to start a Laythe colony. I am using MKS and USI Life Support, with the lowest levels of Interstellar Extended's power and propulsion tech unlocked. In short, no transit times to Jool that would be less than two years or so, at least while carrying a reasonable (30+) number of passengers per trip. I plan to use the Cycler to only carry colonists, building more as time goes on to eventually have a voyage every year or so. Cargo deliveries can be done with traditional Hohmann Transfers. Unfortunately my math and coding skills are not up to the tas
  15. AIM: Make a stock ship that would be able to deliver cargo of ore to Laythe from Kerbin. RULES: The ship must be fully stock, no cheating, the cargo must survive, no abusing of the game engine, if manned: it must have some living space and crew must survive, the whole cargo must be carried by one ship PS: (empty fuel tanks may be removed, but apart from them and the cargo containers, all of the ship must survive (fuel tanks cannot make up the whole of the ship.) PPS: ("ship" starts only after it is in LKO, the lifting stage can be dumped) Challenge modes: Participatio
  16. Do the mobile science labs float? And if they do, how much of them sticks above the water? I'm not at my home computer and will not be able to test this for some time. If someone could drop a lab in the sea and post a screenshot, that would be great. Also, could you take a similar length of the new structural tubing of the same diameter as the lab, capped by "Rockomax Brand Adapters 02s" at both ends, that would also be great. I strongly considering sending a sea plane base out to Laythe, but I am not sure how to build a craft carrying the required (for me) two science labs. But if I can
  17. After numerous complaints from construction workers at the Kerbal Space Centre, the Kerbal Construction Union has successfully campaigned for a total ban on Oxidiser created on Kerbin. Despite the R&D Department's best efforts to convince the strikers that their recent breathing difficulties were simply due to a bad case of "The Sniffles," the workers believe that the abundant use of oxidizer in ascent stages has caused a lower oxygen concentration in Kerbin's atmosphere. Without the ability to create oxidizer using Kerbin's oxygen, the KSP has turned to a new source: Laythe. Your cha
  18. Hello, to anyone who is reading this post. I have ideas for Laythe SSTOs & I need need some help in fixing my crafts so they can live up to my expectations. Feel free to reach out to me & help me on my goals!
  19. Previously, on “The 100”, you flew 100 colonists to Laythe to establish a bright and explorative future for all of Kerbal Kind. With the first outpost established, you will be able to explore the outer planets much easier, starting with Jools various moons. Buzz Kerbal, one of the colonists transported to the colony, had been given a special mission to build a small VAB facility on Laythe. He couldn’t build a very big one yet, but he has managed to gather enough resources to fabricate a few basic parts for you to use. Valentina and Bill are on site to aid Buzz in gathering materials
  20. Laythe has air and water. We believe it's about time it had life too. You've been tasked with the momentous mission to put 100 Kerbals on Laythe. "The 100", as we have so named them, will all be specially trained colonists. They are not to become a part of any ship crew and to ensure this, we have designated them all tourists. There is a colony structure already in place. Just dock with it and load them in. You'll have 8 years. This is the first episode in what will probably become several (not sure how many though). There is a main mission, and several side jobs that will be thrown at yo
  21. I just read on the wiki that Laythe's atmosphere has a lower oxygen concentration the Kerbin's. I assume this effects the efficiency of jet engines. I have a jet powered boat en route to Laythe and another being prepared for launch. The one en route and the new one I'm working on do not have air intakes other than the engine nacelle parts, one for each engine. These provide 5 air, which is more than the engines i'm using require on Kerbin at sea level. But I doubt sea level on Laythe has the same conditions. Should I add air intakes to the boat I'm working on?
  22. I'm building an aircraft in Mission Builder that will fly on Laythe. I'm using the Fat-455 large wings. They hold a lot of fuel, but only liquid. Is there anyway, therefore, to have other tanks be oxidizer only? I realize I can drain liquid fuel out of tanks to save weight, but that still leaves me with a lot of bulk. I'd like to get the most oxidizer in the least amount of space--approx 1200 units--to match what the wings will carry. Also, it needs to be stock, because I hope to share this mission and want to make it simple for others to use.
  23. I lost in some kind of betting game with my friend... So I should do.... "position a satellite at the lagrange point of Laythe". Is this possible? Oh, and no other mods, debug menu, or cheats are allowed... Please, If there's anyone that can help me?
  24. So my first laythe lander failed bigtime. 3 spark vac engines and 1 terrier 3600dV in vac , barly came up to 35000 meters. I know this is a engine issue , and i can just swap it for a reliant/swivel engine. But is the lander better to be a spaceship or just i just fumble with the rapier engine? A photo of laythe lander you use would be great. I need a simple craft for 1 person to land collect science and dock with space station in orbit.
