I am going to place a refueling station in Kerbin's orbit. The goal of which is to have a platform to host a debris tug/deorbit platform, refuel interplanetary missions and as a central hub of the Kerbin SOI. I have 2 questions, first I am inclined to setup a mining outpost on Minmus, is there a good arguement against Minmus and in favor of Mun? My thought process is the easier takeoff and landing of mining barges to the surface of Minmus is more beneficial than the slightly easier act of getting to Mun. My second question is the orbit of this station. At first I thought maybe a circular orbit at 250km. But am now more inclined to run it in an elliptical orbit of 150km-350km. I'm not efficient enough in my launches to reliably get to a 150km station in one shot. Is a circular orbit more preferable than the elliptical? Should I aim more towards a 250km or 350km circular or is elliptical ok? Other notes: career play on normal/moderate setting with Comms Net enabled. I haven't just yet unlocked the mining equipment but will shortly. Thanks in advance!
I have tried out many life support mods in the past, but none of them were just right for me. Even USI-LS, with all its configurability, is a bit too unfriendly in Career mode, where often it ends up that probes are much more viable than crewed missions. I have no experience modding or coding in C#, but with interest, help, and a little more time on my hands I would love to try. My concept aims to encourage resupply missions without mandating them, as well as encouraging big, multi crew motherships without pesky hab requirements. My concept is here if anyone has feedback on it.
*Vanilla KSP* In my Kerbal career I finally managed to get a kerbal rocket into orbit. However it is extremely low on fuel and I have a mission to get back to Kerbin. Is it possible for me to resupply this rocket with fuel?
