  1. Ok, this is the first time playing in Career mode, basically first time playing the game and I need some recommendation. I have started venturing outside the Kerbin influence. I don't have any mod, but I'm using the calculators to reach other planets: https://alexmoon.github.io/ksp/#/Kerbin/100/Eve/100/false/ballistic/false/1/1 https://ksp.olex.biz/ So, I have reach Eve without problems. I have more than 5600m/s of delta v. I tried to overestimate the fuel. One of my problems, is that rotating inverse? or rotating to Eves retrogade I have a few questions: - Should I change t
  2. It's certainly been a while since I abandoned this place, but I've started getting back into KSP and with all this new chatter about a sequel I felt it was high time to get back in the game... well, forum. As a 17 year old with many adjustments having transpired in my mind, I feel that my behavior / maturity and ability to dedicate myself to KSP's community has dramatically improved, as has my abilities in all areas, including playing the game. I am pleased to announce that 2 days ago I landed on Eeloo and returned safely for the first time! It's good to be back!
  3. I have been trying my hardest to design a lander that is capable of surviving an Eve re-entry, and being able to return from sea level. My main problems are first that the lander needs to be quite big and so I need big rockets to haul them into orbit. Sometimes they are not light enough to get into LKO. The second issue is that I am trying to at least land on actual land and not the ocean so Jeb can plant a flag and the rocket can stay upright on landing legs. The problem with that is mainly that I don't know how to do atmospheric precision landings on Eve. Any tips?
  4. Hey y'all! I'm getting ready to send my first kerbals interplanetary, but I'm not sure how much dV I need to get from Kerbin to Duna orbit (not landing yet, but I'll get there eventually) and back. I might try and do aerobraking around Kerbin, but not sure if I'll do it around Duna. Thanks in advance to all of you who help! Also, this is probably somewhere else in the forums, but I can't find it. Again, thanks! P.S. if this is in the wrong area, I apologize for not being able to find my way around the forums yet... *shrug*
  5. I am designing my first Mun Lander. I am using Kerbal Engineer Redux and I've had a look at the dV chart. I've decided on a 3 stage 2 Kerbal mission. 1) The lifter - Carries the two other stages to LKO ~ 3500dv 2) The transfer / return stage - Carries 2 Kerbals Lander will be docked with this. ~1500 dv 3) The Lander - Carries 1 Kerbal - has a materials bay, goo, temp, barometer, and seismograph. 1400dV (600 dv land 600dv up and 200 spare for orbit maneuver and docking ) If I'm understanding this correctly then I need about 600dV to reach land on the Mun from LMO
  6. So I have done round trips to all of the planets in the Kerbol system. Jool V, Moho, Eeloo, all of them. Except Eve. A while back, I did a career mode save and landed a small base on Eve to complete a contract. Now I am taking on a round trip. Now I have built many landers before. I've tested them all and only one or two of them made it to orbit. The best engine to use when ascending from Eve is the Aerospike. It has the best ISP and has a relatively high thrust. However it has no gimbal. If I were to make all of my engines Aerospikes and be able to control myself during ascent. I'd have
  7. Claim the Mun! So since I've landed on the Mun, I've jad nothing but bad luck on EVERY flight I've done. Lost about K$1 mil on this two part, 11 contract setup I'm running. So now that I've finally beat this bohemeth I came up with, imo, a nice little challenge. CHALLENGE: Since I just started playing KSP IDK if this has been done befrore, but didnt see anything like this. If there is, maybe just del this thread. * Start a new stock career using no cheats or help. Basic info mods (dv and things like that) can be used. * Least amount of funds used is main
  8. This is a version of a near-identical post on Sufficient Velocity. For years, I have played the Kerbal Space Program. I have traveled world to world, exploring the very bizarre terrain scattered throughout the Kerbol system. From the space program's inaugural flight to the colonization of Laythe, my veracity was unbroken. Plans were finished and dreams were fulfilled, but there was always one world I never ventured to, one no Kerbal ever stepped foot on: The scorched ball of rock known as Moho. Something important to note is that my visual mods and screenshot resolution vary within m
  9. First mission to Moho here. Used this plane to lift the interplanetary stage - And that's the single crew ion probe. Has a crew cabin so it's not a total spam in can setup, the drive section detaches as you can see with a command chair. That's the lander. Somehow i've burned 11k Delta V getting there, am now in low orbit with just 2300. I take it some kind of rescue mission will be needed, or is the return leg less costly, is there anything clever that can be done with aerobraking / assists?
