  1. Yes you read it right 8139 parts, I just survived a lag hell with most of my sanity still intact... I think. Without the use of tweakscale I believe this is the biggest station ever created! (please correct me if i'm wrong) For quite a while I wanted to go big, really big so last week I finally went for it and build this space station. The pictures in orbit are of a incomplete version so they look a tiny bit different than the one in the SPH During this build I discoverd the true reason why there are ION engines in this game, and no not to provide thrust. They turn out to be cool lights! The interior It took 1.5 hours to load this thing on the runway, but it actually did load! Three frames later (1hour) I crashed the game in order to escape lag central. I would like to break the KerbalX record in part count but the filesize is to big to upload, almost 12mb lol
  2. This is the record of my first official Joolian mission and the craft, infrastructure, and various steps to make that a reality. I'm not sure if this will be an actual "Jool 5" attempt, although we'll see as it progresses. Mission Goals Design, build, and implement comprehensive space-faring infrastructure to facilitate a kerbaled mission to Jool and its moons Complete the process for the next Joolian transfer window within 1 Year, 96 Days, 4 Hours (Transfer window is Year 2, Day 245) Document key moments in the process via screenshots, specifically milestone achievements, main spacecraft, and orbital infrastructure Mission Objectives Create large-scale space stations, massive transfer vehicle, smaller spacecraft (landers, etc.), and other probes to support the overall mission The mission must travel as a single craft: the Zeus Transfer Vehicle ('ZTV' or 'Zeus'). This will include smaller payloads (craft, satellites, escape pods) all combined into a single launch towards Jool Construction of modules and sub-components for the Zeus must be completed in orbit (more efficient, based on early testing) using RPs manufactured in orbit from metal also processed in orbit. Ore will be ferried to orbit from Kerbin and/or extracted from other local bodies (Minmus, asteroids, etc.) Narrative Elements This mission report will be primarily first person, not really a "role playing" or storytelling document for the parts & pieces of the mission. That said, I hope to communicate with some degree of gravitas the different stages of the evolution of the history of space flight that leads up to the Joolian Mission. Here are some parts of the narrative that I'll document that have inspired our kerbals to undertake the Joolian Mission: First steps into space: "Spirit of Jebediah" spacecraft, first Munar mission Evolution of spaceflight: Mk3 Shuttle Program Vision for Jool: Construction of the 'Olympus' Orbital Facility Early Space-faring Infrastructure: 'The Foundry' Orbital Manufacturing Platform, Minmus Survey Mission Secret Missions and Skunkworks projects from the infamous Helmut Von Kerman (Werner's "evil" twin brother) Gameplay Rules I thought I'd put some thought into basic rules of gameplay that I'll try to follow in this mission. These of course are subject to change (and ignoring if necessary!). HyperEdit shall be used for testing purposes and whenever the Kraken/physics-easing makes things too ridiculous (i.e. if I don't want to re-design) Case in point: Olympus was actually HE'd into orbit after literally 10 attempts to lift off with at least 8 unplanned disassemblies. None successful. All parts mods and other functionality are acceptable (obv). But I'm not using any physics-changing mods or solar system-changing mods, other than OPM. Ore for refining can't come from the VAB via new launches. Since Foundry & Olympus both launched with ore, I'm considering dumping them to recreate the need to fill them. Additional missions for support craft, such as more Mk3 shuttles, additional satellites in the Kerbin system, or unkerballed probes to Jool will be launched from KSC. Larger craft or infrastructure, including material transport ships and ore mining platforms should be built from Foundry. I may do trial-run missions in an "alternate reality", i.e. save games that move forward in time but aren't going to be part of the "prime timeline" (my main save). Case in point: My Joolian Probe test missions are going beyond Year 5 to work out orbital injection, etc. and test spacecraft design. I don't want my other infrastructure sitting around in the meantime, so I'm using alternate saves. [Will add more if I think of them] Special Thanks! Awesome flag artwork by @cratercracker Excellent advice and support: @B-STRK, @Geschosskopf
  3. Not ready to be reviewed on YouTube, still under heavy development Benjamin Kerman's Welding Supply Co. Is proud to present Ludicrous Propulsion Systems v.0.2.5.2 "Adding new throttleable hybrid engines and taller fuel tanks in all stock sizes since 4/11/17" DOWNLOAD REMOVED (This alpha release includes just the hybrid engines and an interstage plate) Description: Have you ever felt tired of having to stack two Rockomax Jumbo-64's on top of each other? Have you ever felt like you could use a set of longer 0.625m Liquid Fuel Tanks? Have you ever wanted THROTTLEABLE SOLID FUEL BOOSTERS??? Well, you are in luck! Ludicrous Propulsion Systems adds all of these things to your game, as well as radial-size adapting LFO engines! Hybrid SRBs, longer and even longer fuel tanks, and more, LPS is the only solution to high part count. Pics!!! This mod is licensed under a MIT license. I have spent many hours working on the code, so I would appreciate it if you don't pass it off as your own work without at least mentioning me. Copyright (c) 2017, @Benjamin Kerman Source Code: The code is functional, but uses stock textures. We are still working on the final models and textures. I would be grateful for anyone to go through the code I have so far and make a bug report if you find anything wrong about it. Planned Features: Changelog: Known Problems: Compatibility: Ludicrous Propulsion Systems is currently compatible with: Engine Igniter: Download Engine Igniter Not compatible with KSP 1.3 RealPlume support coming soonTM Contributions: @hedgey579: Doing all the modeling and being my "partner in crime". @linuxgurugamer: Thanks for answering all my questions about .dll files. @Streetwind: Thanks for answering my questions about the differences between all the kinds of mods. @Nertea: Thank you for getting me into modding, as your mods were the first I downloaded. @Supercheese: Help with balancing part prices. Want to help? Feel free to make a pull request on my GitHub page for any of your mods. This mod includes ModuleManager (MM) and miniAVC, all credit for those goes to the authors @sarbian and @cybutek respectivly.
  4. Finally back and had some motivation to play KSP! I decided to take on a relatively large project: build a working stock B-52H! Despite the huge weight and part count, it can fly! Guaranteed to make your computer scream in agony! Here's the R&D process: And the craft download: https://kerbalx.com/PaperAviator/B-52H Enjoy!

  6. Spent about 8 hours building, got it to the sun using HyperEdit, no dl link as it is 1. extremly laggy, cant fly, cant turn, uses quite a bit of modded parts. I made this ship just for looks! I present you my take on Icarus II!
  7. Ok, if you've followed my Kerbal career at all, you know that though I may not say it often, I clearly have a preference for building ships to satisfy the mantra "Go Big or Go Home". SexyLifter36k follows this pattern while retaining all of the grace, sophistication, and good looks of my previous SexyLifter launchers. Unlike previous SexyLifters, this one has everything you need for a successful launch. No more worrying about adding your own aerodynamic surfaces, rcs, or reaction wheels, 36k even comes with the latest and greatest in probe core technology, the Probodobodyne HECS2. You can launch her empty and use her as a tanker (be sure to throttle back a little), or stick a payload on top and watch your concerns about how to get it on orbit vanish as she flies effortlessly to space. With no additional boosters, 36k can lift 2.5 big Kerbos full of fuel up to an 80km orbit and still have 100+ delta-V when she is done. 36kN of [vacuum] thrust will move most anything being built. Thank you for choosing SexyLifters for your next project! This fine launch vehicle can be downloaded from KerbalX! As always, thanks for looking at my craft! Danny. Go Big. Just Go Big!
