  1. The Ultimate Challenge (Originally by Just Jim) I'm not sure if this is the right place for this, but here goes nothing. I was working on my career game yesterday for my fan-fiction project when I checked into mission control, and saw a contract offer that stunned me. It's a challenge so huge it's given me an opportunity to totally change my story plot and add a whole new section. I've searched everywhere in the challenge section, and I'm not finding this one. If it's out there, and I'm necro-ing an old challenge, then I apologize and ask this be taken down, OK? It's called the Ultimate Challenge, and the rules are simple: Visit all 14 bodies in the Kerbin solar system in one ship and return home to tell the tale. I looked at it... then looked again, closed my eyes, held my breath, and hit accept..... So here's the deal. According to the forum rules, I can't really issue this as an official challenge unless I do it, or at least make a really good attempt at it, first. Which is what I'm going to do. It's probably the hardest thing I can think of doing in the game... and a marvelous opportunity to exploit for my fan-fiction story. How can I say no??? Oh, and because I'm a sadist, I'm doing it stock. If I can do this, I'll make it an official challenge, and make a badge and all that. Unless someone else has already done it and wants to take over. Which makes me wonder, has anyone done this? Has anyone attempted it? Am I bringing up an old challenge I just can't find? Comments? Ideas??? Or perhaps just some insane laughter at the thought???' @5thHorseman Persistent file download for the contract DOWNLOAD ultimate_challenge.zip @Just Jim and @Speeding Mullet for helping me to find a badge Since this challenge is literally the biggest challenge I've seen since Jool-5, you be marked with launches, mods, etc. Mods must be stock-like, visual, or info only. Kergarin completed with a single launch ISRU spaceplane. Sweet as Vanilla and BadS ( https://youtu.be/FXAzQk01vuw ) :Jetski completed with 2 launches (plus a failed 3rd launch). Mods? DustInTheWind completed with various info and part mods. Over 400 screenshots. First entry in a while. IncongruousGoat completes the challenge with only info and visual mods. Looks great!
  2. Okay. Here goes. I present to you The 'Belly of the Beast' Challenge! This challenge is for the best of KSP'ers, but all are welcome to try! You've been everywhere in the system? Landed, returned? Done the Jool 5, the grand tour? Pfft. That's cute. But you haven't done THIS! Here's what it entails: 'Easy' Mode: Enter Joolian Atmosphere from an orbit of your choice, descend to 150,000m, return to an orbit that does not enter the atmosphere. HyperEdit enabled to get into orbit in the first place Intermediate: Enter Joolian Atmosphere from a stable orbit of your choice, descend to 100,000m, return to an orbit that does not enter the atmosphere. HyperEdit enabled to get into orbit in the first place, but not as EPIC Watney mode: Enter Joolian Atmosphere from a stable orbit of your choice, descend to 50,000, return to an orbit that does not enter the atmosphere. HyperEdit disabled! KRAKEN mode: Enter Joolian Atmosphere from a stable orbit of your choice, descend to whatever you feel is badass enough or MORE (you insane magician), return to an orbit that does not enter the atmosphere. And impress me, if you feel daring. HyperEdit disabled! (Note: Hyperedit or any other software / file editing may be used to get into a stable orbit to begin the challenge from, but you MUST evidence you have not used cheats in a breach of these rules, through screenshots or a video, and you MUST remove any mods before beginning the challenge) So there you have it! I've challenged you to this feat. I do not doubt that it has been done before, but in THIS version? With re-entry heat, drag and other factors to count for (did I mention crushing gravity?), this is no challenge for the faint of heart. But this challenge is what I think should be the pinnacle of excellence. Record it, screenshot it, just let me know your stories! Whether you fail or you succeed, I want to hear what YOU did. Even if you failed, to take on this task writes you into the legendary history books and earns your name the strength and honour anyone daring enough to attempt this challenge deserves! And even if you don't wish to take part, share this challenge around, or just comment on what you think! I want to see some Youtubers taking on this challenge like the weekly Reddit challenges, so lets let them all know! If people start to do this challenge, I'll make a badge for each challenge mode for you to put on your signature, and your name will be written into the list below! If this challenge has been done before than please tell me, but I have seen NO attempts at anything like this in 1.0+. Please try to use the latest version of the game, the idea is that the latest changes give it the challenge factor. And to all those who dare to venture into the belly of the beast... Good luck... You'll need it. Hall of Fame: -YOUR NAME HERE! Honourable mentions:
