Official 1.0 MEGA Hype Thread!

Recommended Posts

It just occurred to me that the perfect hype train is...

... Elon Musk's Hyperloop.

Can somebody Kerbalize this image? (Or another Hyperloop pic?)

HYPE!!!

What are you going to do first in 1.0?

I'm going to make a vessel with all of the new parts, then mine the launch pad, decouple some fairings, and then launch val on my vostok.

Then I'll make a mk3 plane which is self sufficient, and release my vostok 6!

I'm going to mine EVERYTHING I SEE,even the other Kerbals! MWAHAHAHAHAHA-just kidding.....I'm going to start a new Career mode and (try) to make an efficient space program with the new Tech Tree :D

It should be one of those 'bullet trains', like the Shikanasen or the TGV.

It's a Gresley A3 and you'll like it!

Are we the only game community that creates 10+ threads every time new info is released?

I've decided that it doesn't make much sense to watch SteamDB if we already have a release date.

There's a "secret" countdown to "something" but the secret is that we're in day 8 and the something is the release of the game.

Offer void if I'm wrong about either of those things.

I guess I'm actually getting hyped about this update.

I just found a Class B Asteroid in space and sent up a very special redirect mission. This mission will land the asteroid softly (it was previously going to crash) on Kerbin's northern polar ice cap. Grappling the asteroid wasn't difficult...

...and now we have our own special Hype-eroid.

Isn't it cute? Its previous name was ZCU-648 but I should probably rename it now... any ideas?

Get the sign to a class E asteroid, point it directly at Kerbin and call it... "Hypageddon".

(sorry, I know, I'm leaving right now :D)

Does the hyperoid store hype fuel and act as a gas station for the Hype train?

Actually, that countdown is counting down to the countdown of the announcement of the countdown for the release countdown.

No its a medical condition you need to remove it with cream.

More of a watering tower I suppose. If you can turn ice into LFO you can turn ice into water more easily.

How does everybody like the heatshields? IMO the tiled design is cool, but the colors aren't very kerbal.

I think they look fine.

I like them. Better looking than the heat shield mod I saw days ago.

I just don't like the concept of heatshields themselves. Nah, I prefer screaming at Eve's atmosphere with a periapsis at 5km and enduring wayy more than 15 gees in a craft engulfed by flames with no protection at all. :D

Really, though, that will limit our aerobraking capacities. We'd need three heatshields if we wanted to head for a Laythe mission(well, assuming if you aerobrake at Jool first). Gets even worse when you're hauling a space station. I think the announcement of heat shields detracted a fair bit of my Hype-O-Meterâ„¢, and now I'm not looking as foward to 1.0 as I was previously... I need to find a way to replenish it.

The reentry damage is tweakable. You'll be able to meteor towards Kerbin if you want.

I would have preferred black to the brown. To be honest, RoverDude's design and modding and programming and creation ability is truly amazing, but his models are a bit lacking compared to NovaSilisko, Claira Lyrae, or especially Porkjet's models.
