I think I broke the career progression by orbiting without the contract.

Question

Okay, so...

I was being pretty aggressive to get into orbit, and I forgot to accept the orbit Kerbin mission. I put Valentina into orbit and got her back down.

Now, the contract to orbit Kerbin is missing. None of my contracts available are orbital, all of them are suborbital. I check the completed contracts list, and Orbit Kerbin isn't in there, either succeeded or failed.

Did I screw up? Is there any way to fix this short of starting a new career save?

You didn't break the progression, that's just how it works. World First never offers you things that you've done before, or it wouldn't be a World First. :P If something is on the board, and you do it, they'll pull it off the board, and pick a new objective either immediately or in the next few days. So progression isn't broken, but you did miss out on a bit of cash.

Drat.

You'd think that those things would be like, automatic, just like the altitude and speed things.

I mean, I still set the world first. Do I really have to fill out the paperwork, too?

[edit]Crap.. How do I mark this as Solved? The "How to get help" thread doesn't have it.

World Firsts work like a bread crumb trail. After the initial four, at any given time you might qualify for more than one, but there is always one available at a time, to keep you focused. Because of this, they are not conducive to being auto-accepted, because even if they were, you might miss some if you have one accepted while you "skip" another.

They are based off of your achievements, but they are not an achievement system. They are still contracts.
