Chapter IIX: Project Iron Sands Chapter 8.5: The Big Reveal Chapter 9: Making The Public Interested Chapter 10: The Atomic Age Begins Hey everyone! Following my old Galileo System career save accidentally being replaced by another KSP folder (downloaded another ksp, stuff happened), I decided to this time go bigger. 3.2x was small enough so that I didn't need huge parts, but big enough that I could get some spacecraft parts with a more practical use. This will probably seem a lot similar to the KABOOM! Kronicle. I got a lot of mods from him, and so there's that. I will try to spice it up the best I can however, I just loved the mods he was using for the 3.2x Galileo System. Here's that series if you want to check it out. This guy is amazing. Ground Rules: No alt f4ing. Everything that goes is final. No testing in a sandbox mode. Everything will be tested on the grounds of the ksc, or on an actual spacecraft. I will try to hire more Kerbals when I get the money, as to not focus on Bill, Bob, Jeb, and Val for most of my missions. Realistic progression. No crazy missions off the bat. The more crucial, interesting the mission is, the more images of it there are. Have as much fun as I can making this! Anyways, here's all of the preliminary data for the career: And My Mod Folder: Let's get into it! Our first flight was the Auklet I, a very small spacecraft. If got up to 10km before flipping the other way. A good start. The Auklet II managed to snap the first pictures of the upper atmosphere, almost meeting the 98km mark to reach space. We were getting a decent bit of money from each mission, but the next step was to get into Orbit. I typically go a poor job of the gravity turn, etc, so I packed this thing with 6000 m/s of dV, 600 more than what is needed to Orbit. And finally, the Auklet IV is the first spacecraft to reach orbit of Gael! In fact, I had enough dV left that I managed to get this spacecraft on an escape trajectory out of Gael. Not too shabby for the 4th flight if you ask me Using Strategia, the Iota Probes looked incredibly promising, so I accepted it, and made the Canary II. With upgraded technology, it was prepared to be the first spacecraft to fly by another world. The flyby was so close, you could even see some ground scatter! After using the last few units of fuel, it was recognized that the Canary II was going to do an accidental flyby of Ceti. More science, but since the Iota Probes contract is on, I will get less money from world firsts. Bummer While we are almost done with Chapter I, we haven't touched manned space travel yet. With new technology, the Sheppard I was created. Immediately, Jebediah was the first to actually want to be a testdummy pilot of the spacecraft, so he was assigned the mission. Following the long 4 minute burn with the tiny spark engine, we are in orbit! To celebrate, Jeb goes on a little spacewalk, being the first of many to touch the stars in a 2 ton metal flying machine spacecraft. After 3 hours in space, he heads home, and marks the first successful mission with a person to space and back! That is all for Chapter I. I would appreciate feedback or questions. I will probably end up bring in the Impact! Mod for the next chapter, but I'm not sure. I might stick with the mods I have. Thanks!
