Landing AND doing stuff on a planet?

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

Now that my design for my interplanetary transfer vehicle is wrapped up, I'm wondering how to get enough stuff onto the planet in the same general area that I can "do" things down there? Like a big rover, maybe some way to set up a base, maybe some unmanned rovers, etcetc. I like the challenge of getting to planets and landing but I find that 99% of the time I get out, plant flag, and immediately leave after taking a few screenshots.

What specifically is it you are asking for? Suggestions for activities?

I'm asking how to get things on the planet to do stuff with. I can land a lander and return it to orbit but as far as building (and landing) rovers or bases, let alone close enough to interact, is beyond me.

A rover (with vertical thrusters) can be it's own lander.

A rover can be carried in a Service Bay. http://forum.kerbalspaceprogram.com/threads/136738-how-much-can-actually-be-jammed-into-a-service-bay?p=2245289#post2245289

A rover can be half of a lander and undock after landing.

Wait for the upcoming cargo ramp part.
