  1. I had a little adventure with my second ever Mun landing. I did a picture perfect suicide burn to 10 or 20 meters above the ground but then I totally failed to stick the landing—started sliding sideways, lost retrograde marker, and I'm too noob to know which keys were the ones I wanted to correct attitude. Reload, try again, same problem. Feathering the engine didn't seem to be working. So I went with short full-throttle blasts and touched down as easy as pie. In that moment I couldn't decide if that meant I was better or worse at the game than I thought. Then I tipped over because my 20 meter, 32 ton lander was on a 13 degree slope. Well, at least this explains why I was having such a problem. So on the next try, I land, and right as I start to tip I separate the rover attached to the nose, hoping that the ejection force will tip me back upright, and turn on the RCS that I had fortunately slapped on "just in case".* Success! Surely a landing can be no more Kerbal than this. Jeb, sitting back in LKO, suddenly felt intensely jealous and had no idea why. *"Just in case" of what? I actually have no idea.
  2. Claim the Mun! So since I've landed on the Mun, I've jad nothing but bad luck on EVERY flight I've done. Lost about K$1 mil on this two part, 11 contract setup I'm running. So now that I've finally beat this bohemeth I came up with, imo, a nice little challenge. CHALLENGE: Since I just started playing KSP IDK if this has been done befrore, but didnt see anything like this. If there is, maybe just del this thread. * Start a new stock career using no cheats or help. Basic info mods (dv and things like that) can be used. * Least amount of funds used is main focus here. (The basis of the rankings, for ease I thought about only listing top 10. 10-1 pts) * Least amount of contracts used/accepted. (0 contracts = 10pts, 10 contracts = 0pts) * Least amount of building upgrades. (-1pts per building) * Least amount of sci used.(5sci = -0.5pts. Less = rounded up) * "Wild card" rank for those that want to use starts.( Diff leader board) * Hard mode is just landing on Duna. (Don't even know if this is worth it. Maybe drop?) So that's the basic idea, any tweaks/thoughts/blabla would be nice. So there is a max amount of points you can earn here, but because the main point id the funds, ties will refer there. Every K$ counts!

  4. Today is a glorious day! Despite being over budget, and far behind schedule, the Kerbal Space program has landed on the Mun, and beaten those filthy kommunists/kapitalist dogs! Or did they? Fellow kerbalists, your challenge today is to create a set of photos that will convince an uneducated public that you did indeed land on the Mun, without actually doing it. Photos must be able to stand up to at least the laziest of scrutiny. Try and make it look like you're on the Mun. Photos with obvious buildings, grass, or whatever, will not qualify. Each unique, passable Mun scene you make (of a flag planing, rover trip, kerbal on a ladder etc,) will be worth 50 points. Double that if you're using a mod that adds reflections to helmet visors. If you include a nice little story with your Mun pictures, your score may double again. Plus, I'll give an X-factor bonus of up to 25% for extra complex efforts, or excellent scenery.. Please also include an image or two that shows how you did it. I need to make sure you didn't cheat by actually going to the Mun. But hide these in spoiler tags, so they won't ruin the effect of your fake pictures. Also, try to take your fake mun pictures on Kerbin. Do it in space if you must, but there will be a 40% penalty to plan around. No photoshopping allowed. Try not to directly copy previous attempts, this may get a 10% penalty. Use the remains of a demolished space center, use any cheat, mod, use asteroids, use anything, just don't land anywhere but kerbin! Go "land on the Mun"! And good luck! P.s. We all know the real Moon landing did happen. This thread is not intended to dispute that, and anyone who attempts to do so might find themselves fed to to the kracken.
