  1. Launch scheduled for November 11 at 1237 GMT (7:37 a.m. EST).
  2. Ok So I am new to KSP (only about 100 hours or so) and I’ve spent the last few building a orbital refueling base around minmus and gong back and fourth from the surface of minmus to my orbital refueler/ore processor. It has all of its fuel tank full and are ready to begin exploration of the Kerbol system. BUT HOLD UP!. I was just about to burn my first ship from an LKO to minmus and refuel there but then a thought came to my head andI paused my game and I was thinking the very thing that you are about to read: Would it be better/more efficient to just straight up burn from and LKO to Duna
  3. Landing a first stage booster is hard, but this guide will help you with it. The picture below shows what can happen when there is an unsuccessful landing attempt. Picture above show that during landing, the rocket can run out of fuel. This picture shows when the landing attempt failed. So the rocket crashes. before we start. you need to know how to: Get to sub orbital trajectory. Get to orbital trajectory. Know how to use fast vessel switch ( using " [ " and "]" ) and map switch. ready? let's start! here i'll leave a rocket.so yo
  4. I am getting a disproportional amount of orbital drift for each vessel I launch into space. After restarting the game with that vessel in orbit, the orbital drift goes away permanently for that and any other vessels currently in orbit if they had any. It makes satellite contracts and rendezvous missions completely impossible. Log: Mods:
  5. Once I recieved a tourism contract that required to build a space hotel capable of holding up to 50 kerbals... 50 KAAAARL! I started to try various superb station parts pack, but was not satisfied by any of them, as none contained parts that were capable of holding at least 25 kerbals in one part. And also none looked like "hotel" (of course, these are space station parts ). The only mod that looked close to what I wanted was "struggling to survive" Civilian Population. And eventhough Civilian Population is cool I personally wanted to have it's parts with stock only functionality. Th
  6. Hello! I have problem i KPS with orbital lines. When I want to get out of the orbit, then I make a maneuver, so it's hard to see the lines! Please help. Thanks
  7. only rule: be creative! even alcubierre drives will do!
  8. Hey everyone this thread is dedicated to the Ironmongers of Kerbal Space Program. Submarines, tanks, strike aircraft, gunships, artillery, real life recreations, fantasy replics or something of your own making. If it can make the KSC go boom post it here! I'll post first. https://kerbalx.com/GillyMonster/Manticore-Rocket
  9. Since cubic octagonal struts are incredibly light, they can be accelerated to insane speeds. Jettisoning them from your ship using the strongest decoupler in game will acelerate it to 6000m/s. Firing it with engines even increases this speed. So can we use this technology to shoot at really faraway things, like other planets? THE CHALLENGE: Hit various moons and planets with cubic octagonal struts by firing them from cannons in kerbin orbit. THE RULES: -No modded/hacked parts that give insane thrust or have zero mass or anything like that. Orbital telescope mo
  10. I suggested in a post to my blog that solid rocket motors available to amateurs working in high power rocketry can be used as the basis for constructing orbital rockets that are within the capabilities of most universities to build: Orbital rockets are now easy, page 2: solid-rockets for cube-sats. http://exoscientist.blogspot.com/2017/08/orbital-rockets-are-now-easy-page-2.html Comments on its feasibility are welcome, especially simulations using Kerbal, i.e., via Realism Overhaul.

  11. Hello everyone, I want to share screenshots of flying aircraft carrier with bomb bay that carries spaceplane under it for testing purpose. The purpose of flying aircraft carrier is to ferry any space craft to above 10,000 meters high, have space plane detach from flying aircraft carrier and fly toward orbit. Here are screenshots and any comments are welcomed!
  12. I have been developing a method to automatically calculate the orbital elements of a spacecraft with a Texas Instruments TI-84 Plus calculator. My script, which has been posted below, does not need (but can use) the apsides of an orbit to continue, operating on the Vis-Viva Equation. All that is needed is a reference altitude and velocity, the radius of the current body, and the Standard Gravitational Parameter of the current body. After only a week, the script has reached a high level of development, and can calculate Gilly's orbit with a 2%-13% error. As such, I feel it is ready for release
  13. Hey Kerbals! I have finished my Duna Colonial Transporter, capable of taking 10 kerbals from low kerbin orbit to Duna surface and back, with USI life support. The rocket requires some infrastructure. Namely, it needs to refuel after the first launch and every trip in LKO by two rockets. Then, refuel in Duna surface for launch all the way to LKO (although some refueling might be needed in LDO). The duna refueling station will have all propellant already made and two Duna SSTO tankers by the time the Transporter arrives, so it's a pit stop really. However, I need help with
  14. Is there a mod that adds orbital decay effects by : Atmospheric drag, Tidal forces...? like this : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orbital_decay
  15. This is for new people who need help with orbital maneuvers and transferring to your first celestial body! It took me a long time to understand at first too, so I hope I can at least help someone along! Enjoy it, worked on it while I was bored! https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B0K8gNf10roUVTZOZnl6SUF6eG8
  16. I really need help with orbital stuff, i mean i can get stuff of the launchpad and can land and dock but i really need help with orbital stuff. I just can't do it! The manoever thing does not make sense, and i don't get what all the slidy bits mean. I also do not know what "Delta V" Or perapsis/ apoasis mean.I just really want to know because even MechJeb does not have help with orbital stuff. So, if someone could show me a good tutorial i could get a lot farther in the game.
  17. Lets start with the light cruiser or some may call it capital ship. It is unarmed consist out 790 parts Test flight results : Slow and laggy af. How to get it in space? Hyperedit ;-) https://kerbalx.com/applepie/_Light-Space-Cruiser-V178 Ultility craft. made out of 82 parts unarmed test flight : flies pretty good B-) https://kerbalx.com/applepie/_Utility-Craft-V178 Q1: Why are they unarmed A1: too lazy A2: excrementsty laptop Q2: Why havent you tested both of those planes A1: too lazy A2: excrementsty laptop Q3:
  18. Hi guys, i need some help. after launch rocket, in the orbit map view, it tell me exactly where my rocket gonna go by showing the rocket orbit. anyone know how to figure out the orbital ? or any article referent this ? by figure out, i mean the physics formula or mathematic formula. any thought will be appreciate.
  19. I'm planning to put to orbit a space station/orbital habitat/refuelling station. I want to ask, what would be the most optimal altitude to put my station in... I also use MechJeb if that helps... Many thanks.....
  20. Stewardship of the VOID has passed to Toadicus -- please visit the new thread or SpacePort page for current discussion and download links. Thanks!
  21. So i tried to make the rocket as depicted in the KSP logo. I have finished it. this is the result. It IS possible to get into orbit with this rocket.
