  1. This is poll where i'm wondering if you prefer building rockets, planes, or something else like SSTOs more in Kerbal Space Program.
  2. this thread is just a place to show off my historical (and current) mission and craft recreations this is an orbital version of a mercury redstone rocket dubbed the "Mercury Redstone Advanced"
  3. here's the idea, you and a friend who both have ksp start two seperate science playthroughs at the same time and on scheduled days of the week you both work to unlock the tech tree simultaneously, whoever unlocks the whole tech tree first wins you could also do this in career mode if you want
  4. I usually go with Greek gods and other ancient mythologies for rocket and/or spacecraft names. Here are some: - Artemis II Heavy Rocket - Osiris IV Medium Rocket - Hercules Crew Pod - Phoenix Mun Lander - Icarus Rescue Capsule - Atlas Duna Landing Vehicle - Capricorn Eve Ascent Rocket Anybody got something better? I'd like to hear them.
  5. Hey everyone I've been ondering if some people are willing to give me some cool plane/SSTO or rocket designs that I can use for my new save file. If I do make a video I would be sure to credit you. Links could be on drive or Dropbox. These crafts have to be stock because I do not like parts mods. Trucks and vehicles are fine. Just a quick message I am not a good builder myself so don't feel bad if your creation isn't that good and your not alone. It took me 3 hours to build a XB-47 and it looks terrible. Requirements Stock crafts only no tweakscale or fuel changing mods I mostly like airplanes because I'm training to become an actual piolot Prop planes are fine to give but show a demo video in the download link, For the parts, they have to be 1.4 parts If you make a SSTO make sure it has a docking port and enough fuel to randevus and docking Manuver to a space station in LKO. The SSTO must have a crew capacity to fit at least 5 people and it must be easy to fly. I just want some community made craft files for fun but I do not have a YouTube channel yet but if I do use it you should put your username in the description of the craft so I can remember. Thanks kerbals!
  6. SiriusRocketry's Craft Dealership! These are the craft I have built in my current save file. I have a tangled canoniverse for KSP which I will post here, as well as the little lore snippets in the craft brochures themselves! Sorry for the bare-bones nature of the thread, I'll update when I get the chance! This thread was inspired by the amazing works of @rawghi and Binary Aerospace, plus @Raptor9. My guide definitely doesn't have the amazing polish of their incredible versions, but I will try my best! Link to my Kerbalverse Timeline thread: Thanks, dear reader/player! UPDATE LOG: V0.1- Thread created, added Jeb's Junkyard launch vehicles, added EV-1 Wanderer orbiter, added Kerbal probes A.K.O.S, CubeSat and KerbCom. V0.2- Added Kerbalverse Timeline link V0.3- Added first two Rockomax launchers, the EV-1B 'Drifter' and the Jebediah Mark 4. V0.4- Added Rockomax Thunder 3 and the EV-1C 'Seeker. V0.5- Big update, added EV-2A 'Minnow', the P-2 'Osiris', P-1 'Poyekhali' and the I-9 'Summit' launcher. NEXT PLANS- Add 'Exploratory' sections for Jeb's Junkyard and Spaceship Parts Co. launchers, stat pages for Jeb's Junkyard and Spaceship Parts Co. launchers.

  7. I am having trouble thinking up rocket designs this thread is about giving design to the community and help people if they are stuck (like if they can’t get to a planet.) no real rules at this point in time but I will make some up in the near future. You can post wacky rockets or really cool planes, SSTO, really weird missions and stuff like that. Everyone is welcome. Be nice. If you what to tell a community if you made a mod you can post the link in the thread. Most importantly have fun

  9. Can somebody please give me rocket making tips, so I can know lots more about rocket making. I know lots on how to make some but also I would like to expand my knowledge.
  10. Hey everyone this thread is dedicated to the Ironmongers of Kerbal Space Program. Submarines, tanks, strike aircraft, gunships, artillery, real life recreations, fantasy replics or something of your own making. If it can make the KSC go boom post it here! I'll post first. https://kerbalx.com/GillyMonster/Manticore-Rocket
  11. Hello and welcome to meh little space programme! Here I will be weekly uploading about my space program. Maybe I should tell you about my status as a space program. Ok, I'm not a real space program owner but hey, maybe one day I will be! Ok, back to the topic, I live on a farm with a airspace that VERY rarely planes pass across.this kinda means that for my rocket launches, I will not need to have airspace cleared or anything. so that means I won't really have a time restraint, meaning I won't have to finish a rocket on time. Also, because I live on a farm, many chemicals are available (because they are used for put killing), but this doesn't necessarily mean they are perfect for using rocket fuel. Also this thread is linked to my other thread: Ok, now lets cut to the chase, and I will start posting my status as a space program! PROLOGUE Back a few months ago I built these mini match rockets and they, because of limited time, flew 30 feet(only half of the expected 60 feet). I then, in the afternoon of that hot day, built these bottle rockets flying 40 metres! (80 feet?) they were made of soap, water and local air(dat stuff you breathe in). We did so many launches that I could not even count!!!(I'm guessing like 80 launches or something) then we started experimenting with petrol! *evil grin* to put it, the petrol we used was not explosive, between it came out it burnt everything it lands on because of the Bunsen burner used to light the petrol up. After this I went into a period of long research... August 13th So today I was looking in the ol' PVC and adapters parts and I found the perfect piece for a hybrid rocket motor! Then I burnt one end with a Bunsen burner until it was alight. then I quickly used an O2 tank as an oxidiser which then created a very hot exhaust... The flame actually turned blue at a point too! I think hybrid rocket motors are the way to go if you are beginning a space programme!!! Sorry I’m discontinuing this ...

  13. Welcome to the speed demon forum. Please submit ships and planes which you think are fast. Kind Regards, Rocketry_Science
  14. So, i bought KSP some time ago, and i don't know how to reach and land in other moons. The max i did was a lunar fly-by, and i only did that by discovering rockomax thrusters. Can someone help? Image of the rocket that did the fly-by: (note: this isn't the full rocket, but the 1st stage was 4 of the biggest SRB's, 1 medium Rockomax fuel tank and 1 small Rockomax fuel tank, alng with the Mainsail engine.
  15. Hey everyone, and welcome to... TheEpicSquared's Crazy ContraptionsTM (Warranty void if crafts not used in crazy fashion) Note: The reason why so many categories say "Coming soon" is because I haven't built many crafts for that category. They'll all be filled in sometime. So what's this? Right, so without further ado, let's get to the categories: THE CRAFT: Aircraft Airliners The Kossak K-100, manufactured by Kossak Aerospace: The Kossak K-200, manufactured by Kossak Aerospace: The Kossak K-250, manufactured by Kossak Aerospace: Fighter Jets Coming soon Stunt Planes Coming soon Spaceplanes Coming soon SSTOs Coming soon Rockets Lifters Coming soon Transfer Stages Coming soon Spacecraft Crewed Spacecraft Coming soon Satellites Coming soon Space Probes Coming soon Crewed Landers Coming soon Autonomous Landers Coming soon Ground Vehicles Trucks Coming soon Cars Coming soon Rovers Coming soon - in fact my rover for the Elcano Challenge will be up here within a few days, as it's in the final stages of development Miscellaneous/Silly Stuff Coming soon Thanks for viewing my Crazy Contraptions!
  16. For some reason, I don't know why. No-one seems to have these problems except for me. Whenever I make a rocket and move it over to the launch pad, The staging doesn't want to set off the rockets. The parachutes will deploy, The rocket will decouple, and still the rocket will not fire. The rocket will fire when I select it and tell it to fire but using two solid rocket boosters makes this impossible. I have checked and yes there is a green light at the bottom left corner. Has there been anyone with these same issues? Does anyone know how to fix it? Thanks in advance.
  17. Sound Barrier Rockets (SBR) Homemade Rocket Program The last year or so I've been building, testing, and launching homemade sugar rockets at my house. Each engine is a homemade version of Estes rocket motors, except a little bit better. I've built a static test stand to test each rocket motor. So far, I've completed a total of four static tests of what I call an F-1 motor. After the third successful static test of an F-1 a year ago, I converted it into an actual rocket and conducted a vertical launch. It flew about a half-mile into the air in a spinning trajectory. We found it in the driveway in a nearby house's driveway. Here's a photo of the flying F-1: A fourth successful static test was conducted of another F-1 engine a couple months ago. As of late, I've been designing a new rocket called the Cougar 1. It will house a much larger F-2 engine. The F-1 engine was a puny 5 inches in height. The F-2 engine is 1 foot and 4.5 inches long. It is as large as it is to launch a heavy payload of a camera and parachute over a mile into the air. Here's a picture of the Cougar 1 design: I've also been building the Cougar 1 rocket as well. So far I've cut a hole in the tube and am currently in the process of cutting the camera platform into shape. The body tube is 2.5 inches in width and 2 feet 7 inches in height. In the picture is the body tube with the cutout. (That's my foot to the side. Whoops! ) I'll be posting regular updates. Tell me your thoughts below!
  18. Best documentaries you have seen online about space and rockets. This is my topic for posting the Best documentaries you have seen online about space and rockets. If you like Russian rocket engines and the n1 program, you should watch this:
  19. Post whatever special moments you like, when you first landed on the Mun, when you first got into orbit, or landed on Duna! I will show my oldest screenshots my first orbit, in mid-2015; back then I loved the 1.25m parts and hated the 2.5m ones, it took me months to actually do it. [I had EVE and scatterer installed already].
  20. KSA | Kerbin Space Agency: This will be like @StupidAndy's post. There will be updates on this post when new missions are accepted, finished, or the overall details. There will be multiple every day; The world will be in career, so you may have to wait a while! Mods: EVE, Scatterer. Flight 01:
  21. Hi guys! I just wanted to share with you the new project I'm working on. It's a YouTube series called "The Story of Space Exploration". In this series I'll talk about and explain the most important missions in the story of Space, with some help of Kerbal Space Program. I made 2 trailers and just published the first episode, "How does a rocket work?". I'll put the links below just in case you're interested: Trailer 1 Trailer 2 How does a rocket work? The Story of Space Exploration ep 1 Please let me know what you think
  22. I couldn't find a thread about Duna rockets, so I made one.
  23. Can we build something similar to the stratolauncher that jettisons it's landing pylons (which has fuel that is burned off initially to carry a spaceplane to high altitude that then heads to another planet's orbit. Easy: Get the spaceplane to CisMunar orbit and return after landing and then dropping something (10 tons) there. Harder version of easy is to also carry 60 Kerbals. Medium: Same as Easy but on Dun. Harder version is dropping 50 tons. Hard: Launch to Duna, land, drop 25 kerbals, land on Ike, drop 10-40 tons as well as 30 kerbals. Make a refueling stop at Ike, burn towards Mun, land, jettison 15 tons and then reenter kerbin orbit without assistance.
