  1. Hello, I just got the DLC on PS4Pro (latest KSP-version, all standard settings) and have some problems playing the historical missions. Right during the first mission: The Dawn of the Space Age: After successfully landing (Wernher told me so :)) the K-7 near (but not directly on the runway) the old airfield I return to the VAB either via the button at the top or via the mission diagram. I build the K7-B and want to launch. But here I am sent back to the landen K-7 on the island. Here Wernher briefs me on the 48km-flight. Somehow the spawning of new vehicles does not work, From now on, when I manually return to the space center, all building are locked except the Observation building from where I just can return to the landen K-7.

  3. I was just going through the available contracts and saw...this. I swear this is not a Photoshop job. https://ibb.co/02t9ZLx I guess this kind of thing was inevitable!
  4. Hi everyone! I have a contract from StrutCo to skan a big crater on the Mun. I have landed on the very big crater(watch the pic, this is other crater, just the one where I landedis on dark side) http:// https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1760939288 I landed, released the rover with medium robotic arm, but it can't skan the crater. Tell me please if I need a smaller crater or something else to do.
  5. So I've run into a strange bug. I'm on unmodded KSP Career mode and got a rescue mission. The title says 'Rescue Jebediah from orbit of Kerbin' Already strange, since this is my first rescue mission on this save and Jebediah is alive and well. I click to see more details to find the white boldened text again mentions Jebediah, but the task list contains 'Save Desby Kerman' and 'Recover Desby Kernan on Kerbin' The biggest issue is, no ship even appears in the tracking station! I have tracking ships turned on (as well as all other tracking options just to be safe) but nothing. At first I thought I needed to upgrade my tracking station, but pretty sure that's not a thing and that didn't work anyways. I don't like cancelling missions, or even declining them for that matter. Is there any way I can get around this? Attached an image of my mission below: https://imgur.com/a/g83PS8D

  8. I have recently improved my Saturn V replica, and conducted a mock mission of Apollo 11 to the Moon (Mun) in KSP, using real NASA Audio. Its made with a 100% stock parts and looks as realistic as I could make it with the help of fairings. I felt it appropriate as the Apollo 11 anniversary is soon coming up. Check out the video: If you want the craft file I have it on Curse.com: https://mods.curse.com/shareables/kerbal/245459-stock-saturn-v Here are some pictures I recorded the video and took these screenshots with the following visual mods (they are pretty good):
  9. *Edit: I will list each chapter as it is available below. ALWAYS download from this post to ensure you use the most up-to-date version* Chapter 1 DXX Download Chapter 2 Download DDX Chapter 3 Download DDX Chapter 4 Download Beta Note: Chapters marked with DX are final and have been played by others and cleaned up of any glitches, errors, or generally broken bits. ------------------------------ Hey all, I've been browsing the forums and it looks like this is a pretty good place to share missions and mission ideas for Making History? I got the DLC day one and have been playing around with the editor ever since. It's powerful, but a bit tricky. That being said, I'm trying to formulate some cool ideas for unique missions and wanted to get your thoughts. I'm a writer by day and love sharing stories. Instead of just doing recreations or one-off missions I thought it would be cool to do a very narrative-driven set of missions that follow each other logically. For example, if you download and play mission 4 and finish it, when you start 5 everything would be in the same place you left it for a bit of continuity. I'm just curious if any of you would be interested in Kerbal missions with a lot of text and story based narrative (that is funny, don't worry) and a mini novel-like approach to missions with each one named with a chapter number in it. The story would follow Jeb from his first day after graduating the Kerbal Space Academy and a rather mundane mission, eventually leading to more elaborate missions exploring the solar system. My first test mission is almost finished and I will upload it here in the coming days for a quick example if anyone wants to see what I mean. I'm still trying to learn everything well enough to actually tell a story though. Thanks everyone! PS-here's Jeb leaving the academy and being swarmed by fans.
  10. Orbital Photography INC. Mission Report 1. Classified KSC Document Due to recent difficulties on deciding on a budget, all Kerbal government programs were under review. Inspectors were been sent to the KSC and worked on compiling a list of pros and cons. Cons: Irresponsible Management "It would look cool" being confused with "let's do it" Pushback from Kerbal Rights groups for workplace safety violations Pros: (Still working on this) In a final attempt to rescue the Space Program Gene Kerman decided that a series of photos from space would convince Kerbalkind that their missions are not futile. However, due to lack of funding the contract was given to the lowest bidders: Orbital Photography INC. (According to some rumors they were actually three friends with little photography experience just wanting to go to space. Disregard these no matter how much they reflect reality.) The first mission was meant to introduce the crew to spaceflight, as well as allow the to calibrate their cameras. In this picture taken just before the launch of the first mission Theogel, head engineer, photographer and president of OPI, Lanfied, assistant photographer and engineer, and Franzon, head of technology posed in front of the hastily built ship, with their pilot Jebediah. The spaceship, unlike many though, made it off the ground without much difficulty. Staging was also successful. However, in the process of making a craft so quickly a few key features were overlooked. One such feature being stability and in the middle of the flight Jeb lost control of the craft and it flipped. The craft was righted in time and parachutes were deployed. However, in the standard careless style of the KSC that lead to this situation in the first place another craft was ready on the pad by the time the krew returned, this time with more fins. Launch proceeded nominally, as did booster separation. However, they decided that, as this was their second launch it would be smart to begin testing their camera equipment, and before mission control could threaten them with termination of contract they had exited the capsule. Their tests complete they prepared to descend. While this mission succeeded after some initial failure the Space program was still far from receiving the extra funding they needed.
  11. So today I built a delta iv heavy-like craft and sent a kerbal to eve's moon gilly. Where can you take it? (Download it, then show me!) Delta IV (Heavy): https://kerbalx.com/JohnsterSpaceProgram/Delta-IV-Heavy Here are some images of what I did with it: Nothing in the fairings yet, lets put a gilly lander! This should be succificient, its a ion engine/liquid fuel engine craft, with room for 1 kerbal On the launchpad, ready to launch After booster separation, when the central fuel tank is refilled Many days later... Approaching Eve Now I prepared to do the Eve Orbit Insertion Burn, which is shown below And lastly, here are some images of gilly after arriving at it What can you do with it, post images or tell me below!
  12. Hello! Johnster here again, with a new post about career mode, this time, its about my mission I did to minmus and back! So, after a successful launch, I did a burn for the minmus flyby (I decided to flyby at a distance of about 30,000 m so I would get lots of science) the first images you see are after the burn as kerbin got smaller and minmus got larger. First look at Minmus, from 28,367 K from Kerbin. (Its still pretty small, only slightly larger than a dot) Now I am at about 37,390 K from Kerbin, it has grown even smaller, and minmus is getting a little larger. The next 2 images, from 42,203 and 44,654 K from Kerbin, show the progression of Minmus's size from the spacecraft as it approaches it Finally doing what I came to minmus in career mode to do, get science! (First, I am getting some high space minmus science, then when I am a lot closer, low space minmus science) After doing that science, I decided to do my first minmus EVA spacewalk, from around 500,000 m away. (Its high space minmus spacewalk) Now I am getting really close to minmus, as I prepare for a second minmus EVA spacewalk and low space science. At this distance, I can start to see higher resolution detail in minmus than in the previous image Closest Approach To Minmus! Now that the spacecraft is at its closest approach to minmus, I collected some low space science, and did my 2nd EVA Spacewalk. Leaving Minmus. After that, here are some images of the spacecraft leaving minmus and the 3rd and final EVA spacewalk. Back To Kerbin and Landing. These Final Images Show The Spacecraft Approaching Kerbin, and splashing down, putting an end to the successful mission. And that brings an end to this post about the mission. If you have any tips or ideas for me, tell them below!
  13. Hello All, New to this forum and would like to suggest a challenge. So, I looked for videos of anyone that has landed on the Mun on the default "To the Mun" training/mission and couldn't find any! (share link if you know one)This one guy tried it and successfully got to the Mun but exploded on landing,... as have I multiple times now. Now, the mission may seem like quite a simple one to the more advanced players,... and it might well be. But i think maneuvering with limited fuel for the landing might present an added challenge. It could also be a great contribution for novices like me to learn from, and for the person who does it, to flaunt their awesome skills and be hailed as a hero by the community for their awesome accomplishment So without further ado, I challenge anyone to: Land the Landing Module on the default "To the Mun - Part 1" training/mission, and post a link to the video on this thread God speed and good luck!
  14. Considering creating a new KSP channel and would like suggestions for a first mission Thanks!
  15. DOWNLOAD: On KerbalX - Jool Mix-Up On Steam - Jool Mix-Up IN SHORT: This mission/challenge is all about navigating the Jool system with only the level of control afforded when you are out of comms range. That's right: no keyboard aiming, no maneuver nodes, no fine-tuned thrust. Pol and Bop won't be too much trouble. Vall could be a challenge. Tylo might be just too much for you. And what about Laythe? Seriously? I you expect me to fly a plane with the "radial out" button? Yes. Yes I do. BRIEFING: This is a PR nightmare! Jeb landed the Bop lander on Pol, the Vall lander on Bop, the Tylo lander on Vall, and the Laythe lander on Tylo! And he didn't realize it until he was getting ready to land the Pol lander on Laythe! You have to fix this. You're our only hope. Oh, and none of the landers have full control, so you'll have to do it blind. Oh, and the only lander we have ANY control of at all is the Bop lander. You won't be able to control any other lander until you're close enough to it and landed. Good luck! MODS: No required mods, but I highly recommend a time warp mod and Kerbal Alarm Clock. Don't use MechJeb or anything else that helps you control the ship, as this mission is all about having very little control. I would suggest not even installing Kerbal Engineer so you don't even know things like how far off the ground you are. DISCLAIMER While I'm not sure what will happen when you either don't win or try to trick it, but if you just play it you'll be fine. If odd things happen, let me know either here or via PM. Also, I'm still learning this whole Mission thing so bear that in mind. THE REST: I got this idea when I lost my relay to an unfortunate encounter with Tylo, and I wanted to say I'd landed on Bop. The only ship I had that could do it was on Pol and didn't have comms. I've beaten this mission in its current state. I learned a lot about controlling the uncontrollable, and hope you will too. I also hope you will find it as fun as I did.

  17. Hello, I have placed a lot of relay networks around the Kerbin system but I would like to move them all above my current missions in the tracking station instead of the sporadic placement of them in between my other missions (e.g. my space station). Is that possible?
  18. Story: Jeb forgot his Key Card for the KSC (again!) and Gene is about to fire him! Get Jeb's Key Card from the Island Runway and hurry back to the VAB Roof. Summary: - fly to the island runway - land - get out and pick up your Key card - fly back to KSC - parachute onto the VAB roof and run to the door sounds easy? true but HOW FAST CAN YOU DO IT? Can you do it in less than 3 minutes? DOWNLOAD v1.1: <HERE> CHANGELOG: 1.1 - you have to EVA and get close to CoolCat Kerman on the Island Runway now (getting close within a craft isn't enough anymore) - Kerbal Recovery removed as endgoal - parachute to VAB roof door as endgoal added

  20. Comrades, it's time to join the space race. The N1 stands ready. Let's land on the Mun and show all of Kerbin what we can achieve. https://www.dropbox.com/s/udod72znlzzcgbc/Mission-N1-L3 Mun Landing.zip?dl=0 Admittedly, this is my first mission, so I tried to keep it as simple as possible to avoid mishaps. I hope it will be enjoyable.
  21. 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!

  23. "Wait... where's Bob?" "Didn't you check on him?" "Hey, I thought YOU checked on him!" The words echoed ominously through the crew cabin of Duna I, the first crewed mission to the red planet. After an initial stop on Ike, the crew prepared to descend to the surface of Duna itself. Jeb, Bill, and Val strapped into the command pod, while Bob took a nap in the crew module. ...Or so they thought. Turns out he was so excited he just had to step out and get just one more rock sample, unbeknownst to his crewmates, who took off and left him behind as they landed on Duna. Now they're in a pickle. They don't have enough dV to land on Ike again and then go home. Somehow... Bob has to get to them, without a ship, using only his EVA thrusters. He's got limited air in his suit, so there's no time to lose! Your mission: Bring Bob to the Duna I, board it, and get them all safely to low Duna orbit in preparation for the trip home. Download Notes Starting conditions The mission begins with Bob on Ike, while the Duna I is parked on Duna's surface. Duna I only has enough fuel to get to orbit-- not to land on Ike again. Bob has enough EVA propellant that he can fly himself from Ike's surface to Duna's. Objectives Bob has to board Duna I within 4 hours of mission start, or he runs out of air and you fail. After boarding, you need to get Duna I to low Duna orbit with at least 140 units of fuel remaining. Strategy It's a kind of "reentry golf": the challenge is to eject from Ike so that you land on Duna reasonably close to Duna I. Your EVA chute gives you a few kilometers of maneuvering room, once you hit atmosphere. If you end up landing a bit too far to walk... there's a rover parked next to Duna I, which you can use to go retrieve Bob. Scoring None. The mission's a pass/fail. Either you make it, or you don't. Would have loved to add bonus scores for various things (e.g. extra points if you land close to Duna I, penalty if you use the rover, etc.), except that the mission builder has virtually no nodes available for tracking an EVA kerbal's actions. "Board vessel" is basically all they have. Achievements (These are informal, not actually modeled as a score in-game because the mission builder doesn't have the right nodes for it. Just my suggestions for things to challenge yourself with. Sorry, due to lack of artistic talent I don't have any "badges" to offer.) Get It Done, Level 1: Just complete the mission successfully. Get It Done, Level 2: Complete the mission without needing to use the rover (i.e. land close enough that you can walk to the ship before time runs out). Get It Done, Level 3: Land within 100 meters of Duna I. Hole in One: Glide down and grab on to the Duna I ladder without actually touching the ground. I've never managed this myself yet, so I don't actually know that it's possible. It might not be; for one thing, stall speed for an EVA parachute at Duna I is around 10 m/s, which I expect will be... problematic. If you do manage to pull it off, though, please let us know! Bragging rights to the first person who manages it. Orbital Rendezvous: Instead of sending Bob down to the surface, send him into low Duna orbit. Then launch Duna I to rendezvous with him there. I've never done this myself, but I believe it to be possible. It'll be very tricky, because you have very little propellant left by the time you get to Duna, meaning that you'd need to aerobrake just right. And you'd better rendezvous on the first pass, because you'll be in danger of passing the four-hour time limit. If you pull this off, please let us know! Bragging rights to the first person who manages it.
  24. ミッションを企画・開催しよう! KSP1.4の拡張パック「Making History Expansion」で「ミッションビルダー」という機能が実装されました。 これは、いわば「KSPツクール」ともいえるもので、こんな機体を作ろう!この星を目指そう!この場所に着陸しよう!といった指令を組み合わせて、簡単な遊びから本格的な宇宙開発ミッションの立案まで可能な、奥深い機能です。 KSP1.4.3現在ではまだ日本語の表現がおかしかったり、バグがあったりしますが、面白いミッションを思いついたらぜひ作成したり、提案してくださいね。 ↓参考↓ 日本コミュニティミッション 世界のミッション投稿所(英語) https://forum.kerbalspaceprogram.com/index.php?/forum/98-making-history-missions/
  25. I've been playing with the missions built in to Making History, and while some of them are fun challenges, the whole mess is filled with problems. The big one is that on two occasions I've encountered sudden out-of-nowhere "FAILURE" messages just before succeeding in the final mission objective. • Munar 1: I designed an excellent replica of the Saturn V, flew it all the way to Mun, landed my LEM, re-orbited the top half, docked with the Command Module, transferred crew, flew the Command Module back to Kerbin, started re-entry, disconnected from the Service Module, and everything seemed to be going fine, when suddenly FAILURE pops up out of nowhere. I closed the message, continued airbraking, deployed parachutes, and landed safely. Why the sudden FAILURE? My only guess is that the no-longer-needed Service Module (not even part of my vessel anymore) had just blown up from re-entry heat, and the program thought "oh wait, a required part has just blown up! FAILURE!" • Acapello 13: orbited Kerbin, went to the Mun in spite of the setbacks, landed Jeb in the lander, got Jeb back into the Command Module, returned to Kerbin atmosphere, got the "oh noes your parachutes have failed and you'll have to bail out and use personal parachutes" message, had all three of the crew bail out and deploy personal parachutes... and then suddenly got an "I told you you should've bailed out!" message from Gene Kerman and the FAILURE message out of nowhere. Again, I closed the FAILURE message and continued playing... Valentina (the one I was controlling at the moment) landed safely; the other two kerbals seem to have vanished into thin air (in spite of their parachutes having already been deployed); the crew capsule, ironically, made it to the ground completely undamaged! And yet FAILURE anyway. No clue why. I've also been having problems with the Service Module part that is required to be used in the Munar 1 mission. I loaded it up with fuel tanks (of the 1.25m variety), and discovered when I reached the appropriate stage that they weren't feeding fuel to the engine (connected directly to said Service Module) at all. I started over, discovered that the tanks were attached to the ceiling of the SM, and tried attaching them to the floor of the SM instead--the "fuel overlay" view confirmed that they should both be feeding fuel to the engine. When I actually flew it, though, only half of the tanks (either just left side or just right side; I forget) fed fuel to the engine; the other half remained full and untouched throughout the entire mission--and untouchable, too, since apparently the "transfer fuel from one tank to another" ability has been disabled?? By some miracle of engineering and the Tsiolkovsky equation I made it back to Kerbin anyway, but, well, FAILURE; see above. I hate to complain here, because KSP is such an amazing product and as a physics teacher I get so much use out of it both personally and professionally... but I'm getting really tired of these bugs. I'd expect to see this sort of problem in a hastily assembled mod, not purchased DLC that was in development for so long.
