Dres Awareness, Show Your Support! ( Still alive, with a slight twist!)

Recommended Posts

All right, time to add to the numerous new challenges popping up.

The premise of the challenge is simple. Show your support for our loneliest planet, Dres!This is a challenge to perform a megamission to make Dres feel happy, so be creative on how you want to do it! I myself will be doing a circumnavigation of Dres by land later, so yeah. If your mission uses Dresteroids, the mission must directly relate to Dres in one way/shape/form. If this is a bit vague, notify me, and I'll put in some baseline examples.

We at DresAwarenessLTD are here to emphasize large-scale missions to our lonely friend, Dres! A simple Land-Return mission is not enough to us, go further, and beyond!  Not just Dres now, no. While Dres forever remains our Number 1, I have decided to include Eeloo and Moho on our planetary awareness list! That's about it. Carry on.

And a note: Sanic has agreed to be my helper when I'm away, so if he's online and I'm not, Sanic will basically asume role of challenge overseer. Just to clarify. Thanks, -SPAddict.

Suggestions, which by no means you need to follow to complete this:

Orbit:

Not just one satalite, have a full NETWORK

Have a space-station, big enough to be classified as BIG (unless you have a bad laptop like me)

Surface:

Rover? No, MANY rovers

Lander? Ok, lot's O' Kerbals!

Mining ops? Ok, LOT's!

Base? Ok, make it BIG!

 

Rules:

-Please, no f12 or Hyperedit

-Wheaton's Law :D

-Try keeping it stock, tell me about a fun mod that doesn't ruin the challenge, and I will look into it 

Rules Regarding Proof:

-Mission Report threads are fine, I encourage this too!

-Screenshots, if used, should document at minimum, all iportant burns, manuevers, etc.

-Videos are welcome!

- Screenshots must show UI at all important events, beauty shots are exempt however. Please be sure to keep the UI visible if it is not a beauty shot

 

Mods Allowed:

 Mods will now be handled on a case by case basis. To be blunt, all legitimate mods are allowed. That means, this is essentially a rule saying "Do not cheat by proxy of a mod"  

Ask for mods you find that are "on the fence"

To help Dres feel loved, I humbly submit a picture of a kitten hugging a potato.

I'd like to think my constant yelling about Dres awareness had some effect on the creation of this challenge.

TO DRES!

No, you may have used hyperedit ;)

I would to get there when I make another trip. First one always has to be legit and then I cheat if I don't feel like sitting through 5 massively laggy burns at 700 parts:/(The ship refuels itself so it doesn't do any long term damage)

And even though I'd give you a pardon, I feel like you have used Hyperedit. Just tell me, did you perform the same launch for all sats? And what about all of the varied inclinations?

It's one mothership, the sats are moved about using a tug and can be recovered when she leaves SOI.

Can I go on the supporter list for being annoying enough for this challenge to be created?

Or do I have to do the Dres mission?

(I think it's the second one)

Meh, of course! Hand proof of a glorious Dres mission, and I'll mention in the OP how annoying you were :D

I never realized how bad I was at making interplanetary missions...
