This is a little ship I made based off the spaceship designs of old. She can get to Duna and back with a refuel stop on Duna, as long as she starts in orbit, so take out a big launcher. She has about 3000 m/s of delta-v to give you an idea. She has 3 drills and a large IRSU to produce fuel when she lands. Can be a little finicky so be careful with thrusting up tooo much in atmospheres. Overall I like her a lot. You can take her to the Mun or Minmus if you want too. Pure Stock.

So, in Campaign, I have tried to go to planets in the order the explore contracts give them to me, for a sort of storyline/progression even after I have finished the tech tree. However, this is just getting annoying. Explore Ike: perform a rendezvous around Ike, perform a docking around Ike. Explore the Sun: Rendezvous two vessels, perform a crew transfer. Explore Gilly: Return to Kerbin from orbit of Gilly. Now, I want to explore new planets, and I am nearly done with these moons and planets. However I keep getting more contracts for Ike and Gilly, and even the Sun. I just finished the Explore Ike contract using a probe with a claw on it, and then got a contract to do a crew transfer around Ike, and I have no other easily available ships to do that with, from my Duna base. These contracts just start to feel more annoying after I've already done X around Y so many times. The return missions are annoying as well. When I first explored Gilly, it told me to return from a Gilly flyby. I sent a probe, returned it to Kerbin. A contract for orbit Gilly + return then is available. Since most of the time I either send one-way probes to moons/planets or I send refuelling bases, it means I either have to send another vehicle to go there and return, or sacrifice one of the vehicles I already have there to go back, which means sending a duplicate again, which gets boring after I've sent two different vehicles to the Duna system for Ike returns. What are your opinions on these Explore contracts? Personally, I believe it would be better with just Flybys, Orbits, Landings, Flags and Science but that's just my opinion. And also, is it true that going to a location early skips all Explore contracts for that location?
1. Go to the Exploring Gilly scenario 2. Go on EVA 3. Kill your Kerbal (I HyperEdited him into Eve's atmosphere) 4. On the "Mission Results" screen, click "Space Center" 5. There you go. You can save game, play normally.
