I think I am one of the only people that make small but not challenging lander designs. And as Doodling Adventures had to end, I thought it would be fun to try this out for the community. Now the problem with all the past challenges I have tried where that I made no example, they where pretty hard, and there was no rewards at all. So I went on to build the little lander challenge. So here we go: Round 1: Garage landers Round 2: Two is better than one Round 3: Asteroids, Comets, and Giants oh my! Round 4: There and back again! - Starts Now! Scenario: Tragedy struck on a crew mission where an explosion in the spacecraft caused serious injury for the kerbals. The Space Center is grounded for launching any crew until proven safe. But sample returns will help receive more science. So all funding has been cut for the great crew mission to (insert destination.) Funds are limited to suppliers so teaming up helps get more funds available. So team up with your competitors to save the grand mission to (insert destination!!!!) This round is supposed to help convince you teaming up with another forum user to complete the mission. It can be done alone but you will have limited funding! Spacecraft rules: -Cheats are allowed for testing only! -Be able to successfully fly your whole mission -You may have the limit to 1 RTG for one user and 2 for two users. Xenon will not be allowed for this round. -Not use of cheats inflight, physics editing mods, or non-stock parts (DLC allowed) -No crew or lack of probe core -No going higher than 100,000 funds solo OR No going higher than 170,000 funds duo -You are required to land a probe core with all the science returned either in a container or physically Mission Mission is pretty basic, Fly to a destination that's allowed, collect science and maybe drill some ore to return. Here is what is considered a successful mission: single user: -Launch on the pad (Limit is two) -Fly to Kerbin orbit (Periapsis and Apoapsis has to be between 70,000-84,000,000) -Encounter the destination and send a lander to the surface -Collect X amount of science -Return to Kerbin (orbiter optional) -Have some kind of image/video for each step to prove you did this mission two users: First user: -Launch the lander on the pad -Fly to Kerbin orbit (Periapsis and Apoapsis has to be between 70,000-84,000,000) -Encounter the destination and send the lander to the surface -Collect X amount of science -Return to orbiter -Have some kind of image/video for each step to prove you did this mission Second user -Launch the orbiter on the pad on the pad -Fly to Kerbin orbit (Periapsis and Apoapsis has to be between 70,000-84,000,000) -Encounter the destination and orbit (Periapsis and Apoapsis has to be between 10,000 meters above surface/atmosphere to SOI) -Retrieve science and probe that went to surface -Return to Kerbin with science and probe intact -Have some kind of image/video for each step to prove you did this mission Destination: Here is allowed destinations: Ike - Easiest (1 user only Will not count to flagship) Duna - Easy (Will not count to flagship) Dres - Medium (1 user only) Vall - Medium (1 user only) Eeloo - Intermediate Moho - Hard Tylo - Hard Jool - Hardest (automatic flagship 2 user only) Eve - Hardest (automatic flagship 2 user only) If you have a modded planet/moon you want to fly to ask before flying there (Generally most of the larger OPM and some hard planets like @GRS's Arkanus are allowed) Scoring: 1. Penatlies: If you broke rules you will lose 10 points for each broken rule. Except for banned part and fund penalties, it's 5 points you lose for each banned part/1,000 funds. You must have a probe or it's a gatecrasher 2. Destination (may change): Each destination has a difficulty rating and if you do a modded destination I will rate it's difficulty: Easy - 20 points (1) or 40 points (2) Medium - 30 points (1) Intermediate - 50 points (1) or 70 points (2) Hard - 70 points (1) or 140 points (2) 3. Spacecraft: Based on what your spacecraft did you get certain amount of points Lander: Each science experiment is 10 points for each stored (each expirement can only record science for each biome one time only) Each Science Jr and Robotic arm survey is 20 points for each stored (same as above and robotic arm can do each surface feature one time only) If you drilled ore to be returned to kerbin is a 20 points additional Every 300 units of ore returned to Orbiter is 20 points Orbiter: Each science experiment is 10 points for each stored (each expirement can only record science for every region in space one time only) Every 300 units of ore drilled from the surface of the destination returned is 20 points (must be returned to kerbin in one piece) 4. Athesics: If it's simple/clean/creative than it looks great! 100 points max 5. Difficulty (may change): Easy (10) - Easy/Medium destination with 4 or less science experiments returned Medium (20) - Medium/Intermediate destination with 3 science experiments returned Hard (40) - Intermediate destination with 5 or more science experiments returned Flagship (50) - Intermediate/hard destination with all sensor science experiments (includes magnetic boom ; excludes Atmospheric science experiment for vacuum destinations) 6. Bonuses (may change): Flagship bonus - 70 Community favorite - 30 My favorite - 30 Co-op - 100 Use this as an example of what to submit (images are welcomed) Round 4 rankings (note each user has a separate score even if they teamed up) 1. @camacju | M | Hard - Honoree Flagship| 1400 points 2. @The Doodling Astronaut | SRB smoker | Flagship | 370 points 3. 4. 5. <more rankings will be added if there are more participators> High Quality patch is right here for people who complete this challenge. copy and paste this image in your account settings then double click on the image to change it's size.
