I just took a contract to rescue a girl from a retrograde solar orbit. More details in the chart below. AND FOR GOD'S SAKE, READ THE CHART BEFORE YOU ASK "WHAT ARE THE TARGET'S ORBITAL PARAMETERS?" MISSION BRIEFING CURRENT TIME: Y54D295 – 1H20M Name Haycal Kerman Specialty Pilot Craft Model Mk. I Crew Cabin Land-by Date Y74D292 – 0H46M Solar Apoapsis (m) 53,476,467,987 Solar Periapsis (m) 41,561,681,152 Inclination (degrees) ~ 177 If I complete this rescue mission successfully, I'll earn 178,200 total (this is the rewards minus the reputation taxes) I'm a bit clueless on how I should proceed with this mission. Worst of all, I have no idea how to build the rescue craft. I had the idea to use ion propulsion for the final rescue craft, but I also need the energy and power generation (especially RTGs) to go with it. Aside from that, I have no idea how to proceed - or if ion propulsion would even be enough. Does anyone have any ideas on how I should: Construct my spacecraft. Propulsion source ISRU or not? Action plan: When to launch Launch when Kerbin is at a certain spot relative to Haycal? Blast off at morning or night at the KSC What to do after leaving Kerbin's SOI Gravity assist/s (I'm bad at those)? Refueling? Any and all help is greatly appreciated. Thank you.
So I've built a station, and I want it to be in a 120km orbit. Yet i'm not sure what a solar orbit is. I have a infrared scanner on it and when i put it on a normal orbit, it says it needs to be on a solar orbit. Whats a solar orbit?
Hi all. I have the problem. Quest is to build orbital station for 19 kerbals then place it on solar orbit (at stable orbit station should have 6000 fuel) and one more condition "Place 3 kerbals with tourist prof. on the station" First I make station with 20 seats take additional contract with 5 tourists place 3 of them on station and launch it to solar orbit... Does not work Then I make 1 station with 6 seats place on it 5 tourists launch it to solar orbit then build another station with 20 seats and launch it to solar orbit then docked one to another and place 3 tourists from first station to another... Does not work... Any advice ?
Yo, @bewing: I know you test all the contracts to look for any bugs, and I think I've got one for you. I accepted this contract to recover a module from solar orbit, but it does not appear in the tracking station. Sorry for posting this here. Not exactly sure how to go about posting bugs. I've never signed on to the bug tracker. Things like this happen now and then, but I just ignore it because it's not a big deal and doesn't really affect my game. However, I know that running down this kind of thing is what you do, so I thought you'd wanna know. I have the savegame if you want it. And apologies to Gameplay Questions followers for posting here.
