  1. The Idea: The International Space Station is one of humanities greatest achievements. Like many others I love the ISS, mods and Kerbal Space Program, naturally you would mix all 3. A little over a year ago I began an endeavor to accurately construct the ISS in order and document it on reddit. Since then time has passed and I have vastly improved in my ship creation and screenshot taking skills. I knew when I stopped the first time I'd revisit the idea and now is the time! The goal of this whole thing is to use Kerbal Space Program and a vast library of mods to document every flight to the ISS and its construction in order. [email protected] cup and @D0m1nu2 work hard on this project and we're very excited to work on documenting the sheer greatness that surrounds the ISS and it's missions! My Inspiration: The idea isn't original and born of several things including another series I created focusing on Shuttle Missions called Shuttle Adventures! These missions are created by not only myself but other like minded Kerbal players. But the Idea isn't mine by any means and I feel inclined to credit those who inspired me, If you like anything I've done you'll certainly enjoy what they've done. @Jay The Amazing Toaster with Kānāwai: Ares to Mars Kevin Gustafson and his amazing among other things ISS & Mir documentaries on Youtube @winged and his amazing among other things Constellation Mars video @Zorg @alberro+and @Pioneer_Stevefor dazzling me with their magnificent screenshots @AmateurAstronaut1969 and their fantastic series on the ETS Space Station Freedom @Jacktical and their awesome series on the IRL concept of Space Station Freedom that goes by the name of Space Station Liberty @D0m1nu2 and their excellent International Manned Laboratory series, a recreation of International Skylab conducted in RSS! @Aviation365 and their wonderful series Go At Throttle Up, an RSS/RO depiction of Shuttle Flights both real and fictional, while obeying Shuttle parameters. The progenitor to this series, Shuttle Adventures, An Album of Kerbalized Space Shuttle Missions, containing real, proposed, canceled and other Shuttle related missions. You can find that here: Mods: Since the inception of Shuttle Adventures the mod list has grown slowly over time and I've tried to keep up with updating the mod list. that will be include in the spoiler below the list of highlighted mods. @benjee10 With Redirect, Habtech 2, and SOCK @DylanSemrau With Photon Corp @Beale With Tantares @tony48 With KSRSS & KSRSSVE And the ReStock team with of course Restock Thanks to those who interact and follow this series! We've been working hard and having a great time making it!
  2. "...In 1961 it took a crisis--the space race--to speed things up. Today we don't have a crisis; we have an opportunity. To seize this opportunity, I'm not proposing a 10-year plan like Apollo; I'm proposing a long-range, continuing commitment. First, for the coming decade, for the 1990s: Space Station Freedom, our critical next step in all our space endeavours. And next, for the new century: Back to the Moon; back to the future. And this time, back to stay. And then a journey into tomorrow, a journey to another planet: a manned mission to Mars...." --George H.W. Bush, 1989 The year is 1992 America has just completed the assembly of Space Station Freedom 3 years have passed since the announcement of 'Project Constellation'. The Constellation program detailed a multi-step program, which involved completing Space Station Freedom, Developing a crewed Lunar vehicle and lander, finally returning Astronauts to the moon, and eventually settling on a location for a Lunar base, a permanent crewed outpost, keeping humanities foothold firmly beyond earth, with an eventual build-up of Mars hardware, ready to land humans on the red planet twenty years down the line. Out of the mess of competing programs, hardware and timeframes, Artemis emerged, a program similar to the early stages of Constellation, consisting of three major components: - Apollo block V, an upgrade to the block IV and the crew return vehicle for Artemis - The Lunar lander, one Hab lander to carry supplies and a living space for the crew, and the other to be a glorified taxi to the surface -A large 5.5m wide TLI stage to send the crew out to the moon, named Pegasus as it gave the Artemis program wings These components would be launched on three separate Saturn Heavy H03 rockets, NASA's biggest and most powerful launcher since the Saturn V My plan with this thread is to recreate the entire Artemis program, along with Orion, and it's Lunar 'Soonbase' The mission list is as follows March 1996 - Artemis 1 September 1996 - Freedom Expedition 32 October 1997 - Pegasus first flight February 1998 - Artemis 2 June 1998 - Artemis 3 November 1998 - Artemis 4A , March 1999 - Artemis 4B & 4C November 1999 - Artemis 5A, July 2000 - Artemis 5B & 5C January 2001 - Artemis 6A, Summer 2001 - Artemis 6B & 6C January 2002 - Artemis 7A, Summer 2002 - Artemis 7B & 7C January 2003 - Artemis 8A, Summer 2003 - Artemis 8B & 8C January 2004 - Artemis 9A, Summer 2004 - Artemis 9B & 9C January 2005 - Artemis 10A, September 2005 - Artemis 10B & 10C January 2006 - Unmanned Saturn M22 explosion July 2006 - Artemis 11A, February 2007 - Artemis 11B & 11C Late 2007 - Orion assembly mission 1 Late 2007 - Orion assembly mission 2 June 2008 - Orion expedition 1 March 2009 - Orion expedition 2 2010 - Orion expedition 3 I hope you all come to enjoy this project as much as I will making it Ad Astra!
  3. The Idea: Like many others I love The Space Shuttle, mods and Kerbal Space Program, what else could you do but mix all 3 ? That's what I'm doing. A while ago on the subreddit, I did something similar surrounding the ISS. I want to continue that but also expand into other reality based and fictional shuttle missions, adventures if you will. The goal of this whole thing is to use Kerbal Space Program and a large amount of fantastic mods from this community to give everyone a unique vantage point of The Space Shuttle, her missions, their payloads, and hopefully enjoy the wonders and beauty of space and space exploration. My Inspiration: The idea behind this is not original by any means and I feel it is necessary to credit those who inspired me, and if you like what I do, you'll certainly like what they've done. @Jay The Amazing Toaster And his Kānāwai: Ares to Mars Kevin Gustafson and his amazing among other things ISS & Mir documentaries on Youtube @winged and his amazing among other things amazing Constellation Mars video @Zorg @alberro+and @Pioneer_Stevefor dazzling me with their magnificent screenshots @AmateurAstronaut1969 and their fantastic series on the ETS Space Station Freedom @Jacktical and their awesome series on the IRL concept of Space Station Freedom that goes by the name of Space Station Liberty @D0m1nu2 and their excellent International Manned Laboratory series, a recreation of International Skylab conducted in RSS! @Aviation365 and their wonderful series Go At Throttle Up, an RSS/RO depiction of Shuttle Flight both real and fictional while obeying Shuttle parameters. Myself, @lemon cup, and @D0m1nu2’s Sister Series, ISS Adventures, an in order recreation of the history of The International Space Station. You can find that here: Mods: Like some, I get very carried away with mods. It gets out of hand very quickly... below is a list of highlights and under the spoiler will be the entire list. @benjee10With Redirect, SOCK, and Habtech2 @DylanSemrau With Photon Corp @Beale With Tantares @tony48With KSRSS And the ReStock team with of course Restock. Thanks to those who submit missions, and to those who read and interact with this project! Shuttle Adventures has gotten really far and I'm happy to be a small part of it!
  4. Introduction About a week ago, I embarked on a quest - a quest to recreate Space Station Freedom from the Alternate History, "Eyes Turned Skywards". I wanted a Challenge, something Cool to do, & something to share and show on the forums. So this will be where I document the creation and assembly of the Station However, this will be my Interpretation of it, as firstly, it's more entertaining to recreate it in your own style/way, and also, I haven't read too much of ETS yet ( I keep meaning to, but I always forget ). For example, this is extremely evident in how I chose to make most of the Ports CBM's and not APAS's like in ETS. this is for a number of reasons, but mainly that the APAS are a smaller diameter than the Modules, and using an adapter doesn't look the best. Where are we? Currently, I have launched the first 4 Flights. Over the next few days, I will post them, making way for the "new" stuff. I'm aiming for a new mission every few days or so (Let's see how that goes ) Mods My Modlist fluctuates a little, but for the most part, the main bits are: -BDB (Note - As my computer is pretty bad, I have pruned most of the files from BDB so my PC doesn't take 1 Hour to load {I'm not joking about that - Sometimes it does}) -Habtech2 -KSRSS 2.5x -Katniss Cape Canaveral 2.5x KSRSS configs -Modular Launch Pads Note: As of now, I am playing in 1.11 as it otherwise, lots of my mods are broken - I will say when I switch to 1.12 Here's the Full modlist as of July 28th: Inspiration I have to say a big thanks to @Kuiper_Belt and his shuttle adventures thread for inspiring me to try something like this. If you haven't seen his Kerbalized Shuttle adventures thread, check it out here: Also a Big thanks to @CobaltWolf for his amazing parts in Bluedog Design Bureau - I literally couldn't do these missions without his parts. Edit - I totally forgot to thank @e of piFor creating ETS - Keep up the work and rock on dude! Where Next? If this turns out to be popular, well, I might just do a full recreation of ETS, either from Apollo 18 onwards or from the start of the space race! No promises though - That's a big challenge to take on, and if I do, it'll be once the BDB Saturn Update comes out, so don't expect it next week I Hope you Enjoy...
  5. KSP Version: 1.8.1 Craft Download: A-10 Warthog I tried to make the A-10 as realistically as I could, and I think it turned out pretty well. Some issues: The shading on the two engine nacelles break a lot, but that's just visual, and it may be a problem with some other mods I have, or with my version of PRE. Mods: (most mods 1.9.x are backwards compatible with 1.8.x btw) -BDArmory continued 1.8.1 -PhysicsRangeExtender 1.8.1 -AirplanesPlus 1.8.1 -KerbalFoundries (tracks and wheels) 1.8.1 -ProceduralParts 1.8.1 -Pwings 1.8.1 images:
  6. Hi guys this is my next youtube video, its a very clumsy starship sn 15, its mostly light and is a joke (more or less) https://youtu.be/Q-Dz6NUVORQ
  7. Hello, there! In this series of three videos, I will be recreating the NASA Perseverance Rover mission in KSP 1.11.1. This will not be recreated with full realism because I will be adding a Kerbal touch to the mission. Part 1: Building Perseverance has been released, with Parts 2 and 3 being released the weekend after Perseverance's landing. Hope you all enjoy! Part 1: Building Perseverance Part 2 and 3 coming soon! I wish good luck and safety to Perseverance as it prepares to embark on its Martian journey.
  8. I like to make fighter jets from real life, but I was wondering if anybody knew any mods (besides BDarmory or airplanesplus) that could help with that.
  9. A Seaplane Bomber that Failed to Break any Ground In 1950, the Navy was left without an effective nuclear platform in an era where it needed one to stay relevant in the interservice politics of the day - and the Seamaster was their ticket to changing that. Fleets of seaplane bombers would form a mobile, resilient, and hard to detect striking force with the help and supply of submarines and dedicated support vessels. From there, they could carry nuclear payloads deep into the Soviet Union after launching from places where no Air Force bomber could hope to launch. Despite the many marvels of Engineering that went into making the Seamaster a reality, it was doomed to the history books as a failed project. For the details of the story, please enjoy this video - I put a lot of time and effort into making it. The Craft Download can be found here: https://kerbalx.com/servo/P6M-Seamaster I'm planning on making this a series showcasing the flops, failures, and fantasies of the Aviation world. The next video will likely showcase the F-111B Aardvark and tell the story of how a failed joint strike fighter of sorts led to the development of the greatest carrier-based interceptor ever - the F-14 Tomcat. As this is a new series, I'd love to hear your comments on it below, or just ideas for future stories to tell in this medium. Until then, cheers, and happy flying! -Servo
  10. I haven't printed it out yet, and it needs to be painted afterwards, but here is my progress for now...
  11. This is my stock ksp recreation of SpaceX's starhopper test vehicle, which recently hopped 20 meters untethered on July 25, 2019 and will hopefully hop 200 meters in August. It's still a WIP though, but I'm almost done with it! Here's some images: My Recreation (using Making History for some parts) Real Life Starhopper My Stock Starhopper Recreation "hopping" Real life Starhopper hopping My Starhopper Recreation after hopping, back on the ground One time I tried landing it on the VAB, and this happened (turns out its pretty durable, not the VAB though) Downloads: KerbalX Steam Workshop
  12. 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"
  13. Hello everyone! I want to share with you my project called 'New Kepard'. It was inspired by New Shepard rocket landing: My goal was to recreate it in KSP using the kRPC mod which allows you to write your own scripts to control the vessel. The developement of the project took me much longer than I had originally thought (more than 100 hours). Writing the program which controls the rocket was not the hardest thing. Bugfixing, tweaking, testing and ensuring that the code is prepared for every possible flight scenario was what I spent the most of the time (~75%) on. I am now very happy that I made it to the end and didn't give up. I created two films about my project: The first one was edited to be similar to the original Blue Origin's video The goal of the second film is to show what my project is and how to use it Code and the craft are avaliebe to download on GitHub. I hope you like what I've done
  14. I want to recreate a bunch of commercial aircraft on a 1:1 scale, using only stock parts and Tweakscale. This mod greatly increases the accuracy needed when working on a 1:1 scale, while keeping it challenging due to having to build stock. I started of with a Boeing 737MAX7 and it turned out pretty decent. I am not going to put windows or interiors on the planes to at least save a little bit on parts count. This is more about trying to get the shape and size as accurate as possible which is why there is a custom cockpit. This makes the plane have huge drag but she still flies pretty decent!
  15. In addition to the normal Munar/lunar orbit rendezvous(MOR/LOR) architecture, NASA studied several other approaches, that involved 2 rockets. Type 1: Earth/Kerbin Orbital Rendezvous(EOR/KOR) Launch an unmanned lander into LKO, then dock a MK1 pod to it and perform an Apollo-style mission from there. Or: Launch an unmanned booster into LKO, and dock a direct-ascent lander to it(that can land on the Mun and get back to kerbin.) My mission was that kind. Type 2: Joint Lunar Obit Rendezvous Launch an unmanned lander into lunar/munar orbit, then send a MK1 pod to it and perform an Apollo-style mission from there. Scoring: Start with 200 points for completion. Subtract 1 point for each part used. Subtract 5 points for each tech node you use. That is too hard, but if you go low-tech, you'll get the "impress me" 3x bonus. Bonuses: Use RSS or resized kerbin: X2 Bring a rover: X2 Lander is two stage: +10 You couldn't redock in lunar orbit and had to EVA: Divide by 2 Used Mechjeb during flight(OK in VAB): Divide by 2 Use RO: X2 Use KOS: X2 Use any Life Support Mod: X2 Use Asparagus Staging: Divide by 2 Land on minimus: Divide by 2 Instead of using a MK1 pod, used a small shuttle: X2 No fuel transfer at all: X2 Impress me: X3 For example, if you launched a 50 part lander(parts include launcher!) and a 60 part command module, with life support, mechjeb, and asparagus staging, your score will be 45. Leader boards Type 1(EOR/KOR): 1. sevenperforce- 1044 points 2. DAL59- 140 points 3. 4. 5. Type 2(LOR/MOR) 1. mk1980- 1304 points 2. sevenperforce- 316 points 3. 53miner53- 268 points 4. 5. 6. Remember, you must launch two rockets. Good Luck!
  16. Mars 2020 is a rover that will be the first part of NASA's Mar's Sample Return program. Challenge: Build a rover, sent it to Duna, and collect data from three different biomes. Your rover must have three detachable science storage units. These represent the caches the rover leaves behind. Then, send another mission, a comsat, to Duna, that has a detachable drive. Then, sent a Mars ascent vehicle, that will pick up the containers, and take them to Duna orbit. Then, the comsat's drive unit will take them back to Kerbin. Note: You do not have to physically bring the containers back to Kerbin. You can transfer the science into another container. You can transfer science through a claw or docking. Score: 100 points minus total tonnage sent to LKO. Bonus: 2X For having the MAV bring a small rover/hopper to collect the containers. +10 for using ISRU for the MAV 2X For lowering first rover with skycrane 2X for docking drive to Mun station with lab
  17. 16th July 1969 was the launch of the first crewed lunar LANDING mission. Exactly this day, 48 years ago. Due to the anniversary I decided to recreate Apollo 11 lunar landing mission in STOCK KSP (KER was used to help with orbital data). NOTE: This is not 1:1 accurate, I was limited by the stock ksp parts and physics. Thanks

  19. Since yesterday was the launch of Apollo 11, I decided to recreate the launch in KSP. So, I will post this mission report as it goes along, posting one post a day to summarized what happened on that day in real life. As for today, I will post what happened today and yesterday. So, lets begin! Chapter 1: Day 1 Yesterday, July 16, is the launch of Apollo 11 Here Jeb, Bill and Bob get ready to launch. The launch tower retracts before launch T-minus 10, 9, 8 , 7 , 6, 5... 4, 3, 2, 1, ignition... Liftoff, Liftoff for Apollo 11! We have cleared the tower! The rest of the launch is rather boring, so I hadn't took pictures of the launch. The third stage igniting to plot a Moon Intercept. And that concludes our first day. Chapter 2: Day 2 The second day is rather ineventful, so there are only four images: Apollo 11 with Earth and Saturn (in the upper left) Another view of Earth and Saturn A shot with Saturn on the upper right and Mars on the right A view of Earth from the cockpit And that concludes Day 1 and Day 2!
