Sounds awesome!  I'd love to see a log of that!

Once the space station is up I'm planning to make my first video of many on this challenge, so hang tight! I also apologise in advance for my horribly inefficient transfers to Dres.

Quick update, the kraken took the station as a sacrifice so I have to re-launch it all. I really wonder why I play this game sometimes.

Ach, that's no good!

I wish you luck this next run :)

what should i do,big space stations, over 10 kermans there and back (took less delta v than expected, so...yes), big rover, some literal network system or some asteroid moons, which is the most impressive

All of them

EDIT: I've also got my space station done, so I'll finish editing the video tomorrow and upload it.

Shouldn't be too hard, and less frustrating than Tylo, guess i'll send 20 kermans and 5 DresNet satelites, oops, dropped an extra zero and made four extra copies

(200 kermans return and 20 DresNet Satelites, with one scansat), i'll start roughly next tuesday, i got a test on my school (i'm second year high schooler who started with KSP since first year middle school and got my own since third year middle school)

just saying, if The Kraken dares to destroy your project, go find it, and STAB it with some flags, depending on how much it frustrates you, or make a big station above The Kraken to avenge your Dres project and Dres itself, all KSP planets deserve same attention, this challenge made a balance between all KSP planets, its not other planets being overrated, its Dres being underrated :):):), Dres is also much more humble than me (Tylo) in case of landings :D

i got 20 tiny sized sats, and a bigger ones for scanning, is it enough, and how to post a whole image in replies

I've got a transfer window for Dres coming up In my career pretty soon. Thinking of sending 3 relay sats, one scansat, a research ground base and rover to circumnavigate (might aswell get an elkano challenge in too!) plus an orbital base, would this qualify? I may also attempt smashing an asteroid/dresteriod into the Kraken, you know, cause it deserves it!

This may take some time though as I have a few missions on going (Duna/ike, Eve/gilly) and am trying to avoid time warping too much.

I think that's pretty aware. ;)

Congratulations to @GRS for completing the Dres Awareness Challenge with a MASSIVE 21 Satellite Network around our favourite Dres!

@Aquaticfantastic Nice plan, can't wait to see it in action!

Thanks, and there's still one more pending entry up there by @JacobTheFoxx, and i placed 21 Satellites, that one in polar orbit is the 21st Satellite, for orbital scan and amplifying signal.

Will 200 Kermans to Dres and back be enough ? (also that badge looks realy cool).

Fantastic first episode! However, it's just 4 satellites, so I feel it's a bit underwhelming. I'd love to see an Episode 2 to one-up this though! :)

Well, it is insane, as usual, no docking-no ISRU-no MechaJebass (MechJeb), literally asking Dres for a permission to do a (hopefully) Legendary no docking-no ISRU-no MechaJebass-no Shock absorber Jool 5 expedition, i still need more Kermans, now i got 155 of them in total, yet only used 4, i also used F12 to make a Kerbal, there will probably a faceplant in the Valley, if a Kerbal could survive it.

And for @SpaceplaneAddict and anyone who's having a hard time in interplanetary transfers, here are some planetary allignments for interplanetary transfer.

78TYPV3.png

for Eve, forgot screenshots for others, but remember their alignments.

Duna : roughly 30-45 degrees in front of Kerbin.

Jool : nearly 90 degrees in front of Kerbin.

Moho/Dres/Eeloo : wait till Kerbin is aligned with one of the inclination intersection, each of them have two.

(yes, it has 1000 tons in LKO, and has nothing more than chemical engines).

@SpaceplaneAddict
About six months ago I said I was "going to colonise the crap out of Dres" it took me a bit longer than expected due to me getting a new job and forgetting about this challenge for a bit there ^^, but I'm finally done! I red some entries of other people that had awesome ideas to complete this challenge, I did not manage to think of something unique so instead I went for size of the mission and design of the crafts.

The only mod used was VAB/SPH extender. In total 11 crafts. Clipped fueltanks have either Ox or Ox and Lf disabled.

 I'll post screenshots of 2 launches that show you the whole way there, for the other launches I'll post how it looks on the launchpad plus some random pics. I made more than 600 screenshots so if you need more proof that I flew eveything there just let me know.

Lineup:

In Space:

Space Station
Fuel Station (asteroid mining)
1 main relay
4 midsize relays
4 small relays
Survey scanner
Asteroid miner
Cruise ship
Science cruiser

Landed:

Base
Science outpost
3 crew landers
Hotel
Mobile base
13 rovers (6 designs)
Total crew: 250

Fun fact, there were a total of 1392 struts used to keep everything together

Crap, just crap, so this is how adult KSP players act, and here's my current Dres 200 operation, with nearly 6000 full mass (and its an SSTO rocket).

4fSmFDc.png

And that ship right now.

cBz0lfN.png

Name : Tengen Toppa Centurion.

Purpose : Get to Dres, and back, no refueling, with 200 Kerbals, near The Dres Cliff.

Delta v : Est. 12000 m/s.

Height : Est. 62 m.

Part count : 420 (fewer than Eve rocket that has 590, thanks to the "stupidly arranged" boosters).

Mass : 5994 tons (Eve rocket has only 2 tons less mass, again, thanks to the stupidly arranged boosters).

LKO Mass : >1750 t.

Mods : KER, Nereid's FF, Hyperedit (not used here).

Mission Difficulty : SUP3R (Ultra).

Landing something that big really is a pain, due to uneven surface, and its thin, tall design, it only has 3 Dres TWR, and that's one more stage gone, also planning to fulfill all those thingies in the suggestion criteria, but must focus on relaunching DresNet (corrupted save file killed my progress) and Jool 5 mission, which will be the largest of the "Centurion rockets" series (the rocket you're currently looking at is the second largest). That's the picture of Simone Kerman the mission commander taking selfie with flag and rocket.

By god. Oh my oh my. You weren't kidding when you said "colonise the crap outta Dres"

That's no colony good sir, that's fully functioning city.

Congratulations to @Torn4dO for turning Dres into a second bastion of Kerbalkind with an asteroid minner, multiple varied relays and sub vessals with many tasks in orbit; and with a science outpost, three landers, a HOTEL, and THIRTEEN rovers of 6 varied designs.

Good god man, it's, it's beautiful! I can't wait to see what you do with Moho! :D
