About me



  1. After the first successful orbital mission of Ike in the history of Kerbalkind, data has confirmed that Ike is geologically active! The photo taken by the spacecraft below is among many taken aboard that hint at geological activity on Ike. Following the discovery, the brightest minds of the space agency have theorized that Ike's volcanic activity can be linked to Duna's tidal forces on Ike. The government has been well pleased with the Kerbal Space Agency's findings and has since granted bonus funds for future voyages to Ike. Now, the agency selected Jebediah Kerman to operate a manned rover exploration of Ike to learn more about the red planet's volcanic moon. Hi everyone! DylanSP here! I'm a new member of this forum, as you might be able to tell. When I got KSP2 in June, I was taken aback by the immersive experience. Is the game complete? No. But do I love KSP2? Without a doubt. Before I continue, I'd like to give credit to @Sp1f for inspiring me to start a ground-based circumnavigation mission of my own. You can check out their mission below. As my fictional introduction suggested, during my circumnavigation of Ike, I will be exploring the stratovolcanoes on Ike. Along the way, I hope to find places of interest and maybe even an easter egg! Inevitably though, I will have quite the bug collection along the way. So this is also an opportunity to help the developers find all the bugs and squash them! Anyway, My journey will be documented by days, which I don't mean ig days or irl days since the mission began, but rather irl days of active progress since the mission began. With all that being said, let the journey begin! Day 0 and Day 1 Preparation and the first part of the journey
  2. “Two roads diverged in a wood and I, I took the one less traveled by.” – Robert Frost Juan Sebastián Elcano (1476 – 4 August 1526) was a Spanish explorer of Basque origin who completed the first circumnavigation of the Earth. After Magellan's death in the Philippines, Elcano took command of the nau Victoria from the Moluccas to Sanlúcar de Barrameda in Spain. This challenge is simple. So simple, it's easy. Well...it sounds easy. Those of us who have completed it would probably disagree. The challenge to you is to become the next Elcano. To do what no one, or very few, have done. A challenge to circumnavigate an orbital body, be it moon or planet, solely by ground and/or water. This challenge is a continuation of the original Elcano Challenge, posted by Fengist. It was subsequently managed by Claw, then rkarmark. This is the fourth iteration of the Elcano Challenge. Fengist's Elcano Challenge Claw's Elcano Challenge rkarmark's Elkano Challenge The rules are simple: Basically, you are to circumnavigate (drive all the way around) a celestial body, using a vessel on the surface, such as a rover or boat. Your path should not deviate significantly from the intended direction. Mark your start location. Flags, KerbNet markers, or screenshots work. Some mods allow you to track your path as well. Drive or boat back to your start location- the long way around... The main mission and all support missions must be launched from the launchpad or runway and delivered to the destination body. Part of the journey is getting the crew/ship there. (i.e. No HyperEditing or save file editing the vehicle into position. Any combination of launching, refueling, docking, or ISRU is permitted. The vehicle must be Kerballed during the circumnavigation. Doesn't have to be a pod, the lawn-chair seats are fine. The Kerbal only has to be on-board during the circumnavigation. You don't need to launch the entire mission in one giant ship. If the Kerbal(s) come later or were already waiting for the rover, that's fine. Stay on the ground or on/below the surface of any water. Brief jumps over dunes and such are permitted. This challenge is about traveling over the surface. Thrust devices (rockets, jets, props, RCS) are acceptable, as long as they are only used while in contact with the surface. Using thrust of any sort to control or change the trajectory of your rover while above the surface is not allowed. The same vehicle that crosses land must also cross the water. No ferrying your vehicle on a boat. That also means you can't intentionally remove wheels or pontoons when they are no longer needed. The vehicle needs to complete the entire circumnavigation as-is. If parts blow up or get knocked off, well, that's the Kerbal way, and that's ok.. You may send replacement vehicles. If you read Fengist's circumnavigation of Eve, you'll see why. Game mechanics are not kind to ground vehicles. Your crew must be transferred to any replacement vehicle and it must be very similar to the original. I understand this is a learning process, and will allow some design changes. You may use aerial and orbital recon vehicles. You may refuel if needed. Use of ISRU or similar mods is permitted. Saving and reloading (F5/F9) is permitted. In fact I highly recommend it. Please note that in the past repeated F5/F9s have adversely affected vessels, particularly if you use F5 while in motion. Not sure if that is still a problem or not.. Added a modded planet/moon section to the leaderboards (August 2022). Circumnavigations of non-stock CBs are welcome! The intent is that you control the vehicle during the entire circumnavigation. Using an autopilot goes against the spirit of this challenge. Any rule I haven't thought of that breaks the spirit of this challenge. The point of the challenge is to build a rover/boat, deliver the vehicle, and circumnavigate the body. KSP2 entries are absolutely valid and accepted! I am planning on adding a note in the leaderboards for any Elcano completions performed in KSP2. Proof: Document your journey via images or video, or as those of us who have managed to complete this challenge have done, accompanied by a description of the journey. If you are posting more than 4 screenshots, I humbly request that you put them inside a spoiler. Categories: Note that support and delivery vehicles also affect which category your entry falls under. Stock - Stock means stock. If you use any mods at all, you do not qualify for the stock category. Breaking Ground and Making History (BG & MH) are stock expansion packs, and do not disqualify you from a Stock entry. Stock Craft - The craft and all support craft are made from all stock parts with their stock configuration. Installed mods may not modify physics or add/modify parts in use by the craft. Mods that add PartModules to stock parts, but do not alter the stock parameters, are also permitted. Examples of permitted mods are information displays (such as KER), transfer window planners(TWP and KAC), and visual enhancements (such as EVE). “Stock Craft” means the .craft or save file can be used on a stock install and it looks/works exactly the same way (your mission would remain effectively unchanged without the mods). Modded - Use of add-ons that change physics or add/modify parts in use by the craft are permitted. An add-on’s technology level must be “near term” or of “next tier” type of capabilities as compared to stock. Mods that allow the user to skip elements of the challenge or violate the spirit of flying to and circumnavigating a body are not permitted. (i.e. Slightly better/larger/stronger engines, wheels, fuel tanks, etc. are permissible. Hyperdrives, antimatter engines, wormhole generators, hyper dense or exotic fuels, etc. are not allowed.) This challenge is not for the faint of heart. It will take persistence and a great deal of patience. If you're the competitive type and think of this challenge as a race it will get boring really quick. The leaderboards do not differentiate by speed or times- if you completed a circumnavigation you are on the leaderboard. Good luck and um... Godspeed.... And before you grumble about how long this will take... think back at how many hours you spent doing other things in KSP that ended up being less rewarding... If you are considering this challenge, but aren't sure how, I suggest looking at how other members accomplished it. As this (4th) version of the challenge is still new. take a look at the posts from the first three Elcano challenges, linked near the top of this post. Badges: I believe Fengist (original creator of the Elcano Challenge) designed the badges, for which I am grateful, they look great! If you believe you qualify for a badge, go ahead and grab it! You don't need to wait for your name on the leaderboard- if I am busy with work/life who knows how long that could take. Edit- actually I think the original badges were by @Fengist, but they were all redone by @Claw , who also probably had to add some new ones. FAQ: Coming soon!

  9. I know this is likely down the line, probably after full release, but something I would like to see would be trailers. Cranes of sort. So that I may have a tractor unit rover that can attach itself to many different trailers forming a train so that I may have a cargo trailer for transporting cargo. Maybe a mining rig, crane and some way to connect/ disconnect trailers in a smoother more compact system than docking ports and motors. Maybe being a single part and articulating document like an omnidirectional hinge? Or maybe a rotating hitch to simulate a fifth wheel hitch for semi trucks. Who doesn't want to see a semi truck moving across duna's surface.

  12. In KSP you encountered with problem of rover placement on lander. It is quite difficult to secure the rover with a decoupler because they are designed for tanks not rovers. And there is problem with different heights of rover on lander and surface. To not to suffer making skycrane without ropes or add gyrodines to to roll over rover in case of an unfortunate fall from the platform I suggest just to add ramps Because width between wheels can be different, it is obvious to make ramps kinda procedural part. It also must secure rover before landing and this function can be resuable or not. Of course ramps must be folding, as for example on astrobotic griffin lander or another same type rover landers
  13. Get better control over your Rover by switching the gravitational influence to another celestial body. Lunatic Aeronautics present the Rover Anti Gravity System (LA/RAGS) Not enough traction or are the hills too steep and your rover doesn't have the power to climb up them? Here's the solution!

License: CC-BY-SA-4.0 Link: https://spacedock.info/mod/3111/Kerbal Ball If you control your craft using a keyboard then just make sure your pitch control isn't the same key as your rover acceleration control. Hi. Kerbals take the health of their team very seriously, so much so that they will put them in protective bubbles. This is the Kerbal Ball, a 2 piece vehicle for a single kerbal to get around. Very simple for a bit of fun. The outer piece is the wheel and like all wheels once attached it needs to be rotated clockwise 90 degrees to work out in the world. This is a good one to have the internal overlay on all the time. The pod has 4 extra nodes, front, back, up and down so it can be used for other things but it cannot be surface attached. There are no internal props. It is the right way up when spawned in the SPH. Type hampster or ball in parts for them to pop up. Enjoy.

  18. Who here can make an all terrain mobile crane in KSP that looks as close to the real crane as possible? (Actually, I would prefer all-terrain mobile cranes, but any crane from tower cranes to crawler cranes to ring cranes would be fine, as long as they look close to the real thing. EDIT TO CHALLENGE RULES: Participants can either attempt to make the most realistic looking crane, or a crane with the highest lifting capacity, even if it is not aesthetically realistic. Here is the challenge badge or whatever you want to call it. If you want to participate, add it to your signature! I recommend scaling it down to about 256x160. Here are mine, including the Kiebherr KTM 1120-4.3, Kiebherr KTM 1030-2.1, Kiebherr KTM 1300-6.2, and Kiebherr KTC 1050-3.1. Sorry there are so many pictures, but I use Kerbal Space Program more like Kerbal Crane Simulator. As Hans Kiebherr always said, "Why go to space when you can lift the stars themselves?" Check out my YouTube Channel for videos of some of the cranes shown here.

A parts pack to give you a truly customisable Kerbal sized Mini Moke. (not the legs obviously as then it would be almost flat ) It comes in a standard 4 seat size and a shorty version. The standard has a range of accessories, bars for front back and roll over, a roof rack and window frame that all come in a range of colours. A canopy, the rear seats are optional (remember to place any Kerbals in them that you want to show up, when in the SPH, as they don't auto fill.) and you can put an aluminium tray in instead to make it a ute or just leave it empty. There is also a registration plate you can put anywhere you like. It will show whatever flag you have set for the vehicle. The front seats do auto fill. The shorty has it's own roll bar. Both mokes come in a range of colours (including original Kerbal). Their are 5 wheel choices. Evertything but the rego plate have their own nodes to snap into. The tray and it's nodes are orientated front to back so they don't get hung up on the other nodes. The snorkel out of my Kerbin Rover Redux mod goes well on the front fenders. So a car, rover, taxi, Mun buggy or even a shuttle to move Kerbals around a space station. It is up to your imagination what you would like to do. I have included a copy of the "Rocket Sounds Enhancement" plugin, but without it's sound library so that it only needs the GPL 3 license. I have a sound effect of my own in my mod so that if you have "Rocket Sounds Enhancement" installed the wheels make a humming noise that changes pitch with speed. (I personally don't like silent rovers.). I hope you have fun with this vehicle. AS WITH ALL WHEELS, THEY NEED TO BE ROTATED 90 DEGREES CLOCKWISE ONCE PLACED ON THE VEHICLE TO BE THE RIGHT WAY UP. THE VALVE MARK SHOULD BE AT THE TOP. Changelog. Added 3 new types of vehicles. A left hand drive Jeep for the other side of the runway. A Jeep Forward Control like, utility truck with 3 different trays including a car carrier. A trailer chassis so the trays can be used as trailers as well. A small trailer for the small vehicles. A hinge hitch so that you can have your trailers articulate when you go over humps. (Requires Breaking Ground to work.) A Fun Buggy with a built in impeller that floats so you can use it as a Personal Water Craft. I was too lazy to restrict the impellar to water, so if you have a full load of Kerbals and are using the impeller while on land, you can hit P to pop open their parachutes and go Paragliding. Just remember to repack the chutes when you land. Many accessories for the new vehicles including a winch. Requires Kerbal Attachment System to work.All vehicles have a front node for it but as it also surface attaches you need to Alt snap to node. New spot lights and a light bar that use the new KSP system, so you can change colour and make them blink. A portal hub so that the small vehicles can use the larger wheels. New wheels for the Jeep and Truck. Jerry Can and holder. A storage box. etc. Enjoy. Demo vehicles in the SPH folder.
  21. Updated to 1.1.0 Changelog for 1.1.0 Many changes. There is now a ute version created from previously unreleased model work by TiktaalikDreaming. Also a working Snorkel. Have created working wheels in 2 sizes from the spares, that don't have a suspension tower and can be attached directly. I have also created a separate suspension tower so that you can still have that look with them if you want. As all wheels that come into the SPH need to be rotated 90 degrees clockwise to work, I have a dark ring around 1 wheel nut on the silver and on the mud so that you can tell that you have rotated them. On the silver the wheel is right way up with the mark at the top, and with mud it is when the mark is on the bottom. I added a ute version of the roof rack and have added a Bull Bar with a built in winch, that works if you have the Kerbal Attachment System mod. The head doesn't transfer to the Kerbal but the bare cable does and attaches to the KAS attachment point with no dramas. I have changed the attachable spotlights to use the new KSP model. I have added an Army colour scheme to all the parts. I have added 3 new flags for the vehicles. Both Defenders now have properly working lights and working high mount rear lights. I have changed the Tech Tree requirements to what I hope is considered fair and balanced for career games. I think I made it so you can just copy straight over the last iteration. My understanding is that if you have already unlocked a part in a career game it should still be available to you but in a new career they will be in their new spots. WARNING. I HAVE NOW FOUND THAT THE LEFT OVER KSP WHEELS PATCH STOPS THE WHEELS FROM WORKING IF YOU INSTALL KSP WHEELS. PLEASE GO TO GameData\KerbinRover\Parts\KSPWheelPatch.cfgAND DELETE OR CHANGE THE SUFFIX TO TXT. Hi. my mod of the Kerbin Rover originally released by Tiktaalik Dreaming is now live on Spacedock. I hope you might enjoy it. https://spacedock.info/mod/2804/Kerbin Rover Redux?ga=<Game+3102+'Kerbal+Space+Program'> https://imgur.com/6XrFAn9
  22. FOREWORD After Reactor 4 of the Chernobyl NPP exploded, large amounts of rubble, graphite moderator and other radioactive material from the destroyed reactor were ejected onto the roofs of power plant facilities. Radiation on some parts of the roof was so severe that unprotected circuitry used in remote-controlled robots failed near-immediately. To continue cleanup works rubble needed to be removed from the rooftops. Since the radiation levels would give human workers lethal doses in a matter of minutes, robotic solutions were in high demand. One of such solutions was a repurposed lunar rover (named STR-1), a remnant of the Lunokhod program outfitted with dosimetry equipment and a bulldozer blade. It's circuitry was already hardened against cosmic radiation, and such it could be quickly modified and deployed into the containment zone. Even with this protection, it only managed to clean up a couple dozen square meters of the roof before succumbing to the extreme radiation. In this challenge, you will take on this exact task. You will develop a rover with limited operation time which will help remove graphite rubble from the power plant site along with a delivery method. THE CHALLENGE The cleanup operation will consist of four major phases. 1. Rover delivery Taking off the KSC airfield, you will need to deliver the rover to the disaster site. Time will be counted with the in-game clock from the mission start to the moment, where you come within 150m of the reactor (when the distance marker disappears). In this case, the quicker the better. Point assignment rules will be elaborated on in the next section. 2. Landing your rover on the roof Since the radiation levels near the core are extremely high, you will need to minimize your time in the proximity of the reactor. From the moment of your arrival within 150m of the reactor you will have two minutes in-game time to deploy the rover onto the roof and leave the 150m perimeter. 3. Retrieving the carrier craft This section will not be timed, albeit additional points will be awarded if you can return your carrier craft to the KSC unscathed. 4. Cleaning up the roof After your carrier vehicle has landed (or crashed horribly) you can begin your operation. This section is not timed - the only limit being your battery life (to simulate radiation exposure). Points will be awarded based on how many of the 10 graphite blocks (Oscar-B fuel tanks) situated on the roof you can remove before your battery dies. The blocks are supposed to be pushed off the edge of the roof into the destroyed reactor building where they will not pose a threat. The challenge ends after your rover battery dies. RULES As with all challenges, here are some rules: 1. Your carrier craft can be a VTOL aircraft, a helicopter or even a land-based vehicle. The choice is yours in that regard and creativity in the delivery method department is greatly encouraged! 2. Your rover's only power source can be a single Z-400 battery. All other power sources such as your control modules are prohibited and need to be emptied in the hangar. 3. You may not use any power producing parts such as solar panels, fuel cells and RTGs. 4. The rover has to be delivered onto the roof via the carrier craft, e.g. it may not be deployed outside of the 150m perimeter and flown or driven onto the roof. 5. Albeit the graphite blocks may explode after being dropped into the reactor, they may not be exploded directly on the roof as a mean of their removal. 6. Using kraken drives to propel your rover is prohibited, as the whole point of this challenge is dealing with the problems within time and resource constraints. 7. Please let me know if your submission is stock + DLC or uses some other mods for ease of organization 8. For obvious reasons, the rover must be unmanned. No Kerbals can come close to the reactor, they are already green enough as they are. The points for each section will be awarded according to these rules: Section 1 - Delivery Number of points is the value of the following function: ceil(max(300 - your_time [sec], 0) / 2) Section 2 - Landing the rover Number of points is the value of the following function ceil(max(120 - your_time [sec], 0) * 4) Section 3 - Returning the carrier craft Number of points awarded is 40 - if the carrier aircraft is landed undamaged at the KSC 0 - otherwise Section 4 - Clearing the roof Number of points is the value of the following function 100 * blocks_removed HOW TO SUBMIT YOUR ENTRY First, you should download the savefile containing the powerplant set up in the correct spot. It can be found here: https://filebin.net/h67zuoh36flmrfpz Afterwards, after creating your entry you should either film your run, or document it via screenshots. If you choose to go with the screenshot route, please provide the following: 1. Screenshot of your crafts on the KSC runway at the beginning of the mission 2. Screenshot of your arrival within the 150m perimeter with the HUD enabled 3. Screenshot of your carrier craft departure with HUD enabled (if you choose to retrieve it) with the rover on the roof visible in the shot, or just a picture of the rover on the roof if your delivery method is expendable 4. Screenshot of your carrier craft landed (if you choose to retrieve it) with HUD enabled 5. Screenshot of your rover on the roof with amount of electric charge remaining at the beginning of cleanup visible 6. Screenshot of the roof after your electric charge runs out with all remaining graphite blocks visible If you have any questions regarding this challenge, feel free to ask them via messages or here in the thread itself. Have fun and good luck on your journey. If you feel that any of the rules or point awarding mechanisms need tweaking please let me know! Be wary that the power plant building contains almost 1100 parts so you may experience quite a bit of lag. This is kind of offset by the fact that the model is static and the game does not seem to lag quite as much as with most mobile spawned high-partcount crafts. With a GTX1050 and 8GB of RAM I was able to keep the FPS at about 20-25 at all times and I could execute the mission without too many lag-related issues. I will prepare a proper badge for all participants and will post it here in a few hours. Cheers. c: STOCK LEADERBOARD 1.

  23. Rover Endurance on 100 EC (Electric Charge) How far can you drive a rover with only 100 units of Electric Charge to work with? Let's find out! The basic idea: Build and launch a rover on the KSC runway. Plant a flag on the runway next to the rover. Drive as far as you can from the flag. How far did you get? Rover Construction Rules: Stock parts only. Rover must have at least 2 Kerbals. They may be in external seats (lawn chairs..) or in pods. Rover must have no more than 100 EC at launch. Rover must not have ANY means of recharging the batteries. No solar panels, no fuel cells, no engines with alternators. Also, no RTGs ( @Mars-Bound Hokie ) No flying vehicles or boats. (That might be a separate challenge..) No propulsion from any source other than rover wheels. No rocket engines, no propellers, no jet engines. General Challenge Rules: No, you can not 'get out and push' with the Kerbals. That's prohibited. However, you may use a Kerbal to flip a rover back up if it flips over. Just don't use Kerbals to add distance. ( @OJT ) You may use a combination of powered and unpowered wheels. Aircraft landing gear are allowed. At least one wheel must be a powered rover wheel though. Mods that add or alter the functionality of parts, or which alter game physics are not allowed. Other mods are fine. You must start at the KSC runway. You can go any direction you want though. Entries should ideally have a few screenshots: One showing the rover on the runway with no more that 100 EC, and another showing your distance from the runway (flag) when you run out of juice. If you are posting more than 3 or 4 screenshots, please put them inside a spoiler window. I managed to get a rover with 2 Kerbals 7.1 km from the flag, but I think you can go much farther than I did! Leaderboard: 9.9 km @OJT 12 May 2022 - A couple of rollovers, and a Kraken attack to end the run. Lots of EC remaining when the rover unglued itself. 10.0 km @camacju 12 MAY 2022 - A classic camacju entry, with parts attached by no visible means! Also classic by carefully evaluating the limitations and characteristics of the elements involved. I think camacju already has some ideas for improving his distance.. 13.5 km @swjr-swis 15 May 2022 - A stylish blue and green chassis, how did he do that? Kerbals reclined for lower drag, and more comfort while sleeping and driving. 14.7 km @camacju 12 MAY 2022 - Investigating some aero tweaks. End distance is more than double my original test run. Terrain is becoming a bigger factor as it becomes less flat. Confirms @OJT's observation that small wheelbase tricycle rovers might occasionally tip over. 26.7 km @swjr-swis 16 May 2022 - Focusing more on drag reductions than weight, nearly doubling the previous record! I just realized I’m ordering these from lowest to highest distances, not sure why I ordered them that way.
  24. About. This is the new thread for the Version_2.0 Industries Rover pack, the old thread can be found here Version_2.0 Industries Rover Pack. This pack seeks to fill the kerbal's need for thrill and adventure in the way of exploration and little to no safety guidelines. The pack consists of a variety of rover parts to tackle the gap in planetary scientific exploration as well as cargo and passenger transportation. Leading the pack in these endeavors is the R32M Puma vehicle parts which give the perfect platform for light transport solutions and scientific exploration. accompanying the puma is its big brother the R32L honey badger parts which work fluently with the puma parts to help with heavier cargo transportation, mining and planetary exploration.
