Make up chapters on the fly? Why not!

Oh yeah... I do that all the time. Other than sticking to the overall plot, I never know what exactly I'm doing, until I get to that point. Nothing is set in stone, so to speak, so I can add or modify chapters fairly easily. And I'm constantly changing things.

And changing the next chapter a bit will give me an opportunity to explore not just the OPM aspect, but a couple other things Werhner needs to dwell on a little more... ;)

OK, I'm confused. How did you get the pony heads for the Laytheans? Are they from the KIS fun pack?

It's a mod called... brace yourself... Kerbal Space Ponies... lmao... :rolleyes:

https://kerbal.curseforge.com/projects/kerbal-space-ponies?gameCategorySlug=ksp-mods&projectID=242529

My good friend @Geschosskopf let me borrow the idea from his amazing Travelling Circus Sagas, and continue the "Laythean" legacy.

Truth is, there are no other mods that either of us could find that turn kerbals into another race or species or I would have used that instead.

So for lack of any other option, Ponies became Laytheans.

Hooray! I've finally finished reading the whole series!

Remember when the baddies were the red saucers? And Thompberry was an actual kerbal, operating the Tower of Power?

Yup. It's been a while since there's been space exploration.

First off, congrats @Ho Lam Kerman!!! That's a lot of reading actually! Hope you liked it so far.

Also, I agree @roboslacker. It's been far too long since we were in space... But even though it might not look that way right this minute, that is where I'm heading... In the next few chapters shifting the focus back off-world, and onto Emiko Station itself.  Just be patient, please, and we'll see the stars again very soon, I promise.

By the way, how long does @Just Jim take to write a chapter?

As long as he needs. :)

Here’s a suggestion: divide the number of days since the first post by 95. That’ll be the average time.

What if I want it in seconds?

Or nanoseconds for that matter?

Picoseconds, of course!

I remember when I was still quite young, maybe grade 1 or 2. There were a bunch of people on the school bus older than me, and I was talking to them about small measures.

They claimed picoseconds don't exist, because they have a list of prefixes for SI units at home, and "pico-" isn't one of them.

I was right in the end. So yeah.

(Hope I'm not derailing the thread too much)

Fools, We need the next chapter in 0.00000000000000000000002 picoseconds!

Alright, where is it? It's been 0.00000000000000000000002 picoseconds!

OK, I'll make everyone a deal... someone get a Tardis, and meet me in this exact spot yesterday, and I promise the next chapter will be done last week... hehehe  :huh:

No, seriously, to answer your question @Ho Lam Kerman, it's hard to say...usually 2-3 weeks, but sometimes longer. The last 3 months... wow, 3 months already... I've been busy with another side-project, so I don't have quite as long as I normally do to work on it. That's why there were a couple really short chapters recently.

This weekend doesn't look bad, so I'm hoping to wrap up the screenshots, and maybe have the next chapter posted in the next few days.
