The "You know you're playing a lot of KSP when..." thread

Recommended Posts

When you look up at the stars (in reality...) and immediately think of building some contraption to get there, but then you realize you're not playing kerbal anymore. ;.;

From small I was interested in spaceflight, interest in the subject came from an unusual side. My father was an archeologist, and I read the book "Forbidden Archeology" by Cremo Michael A and Thompson Richard L.
Now I know it's nonsense, but I was still interested in space and flights.
I've been playing in Kerbal for a while, mainly playing in the morning - because I'm a freelancer and I prefer to work at night.

On my Way home from School, I always pass a shed like building with a large sign reading " Hack Space project:raum" (last word being German for "Room").
The Human brain, always trying to Make vague shapes look like what one remembers, 
I always first read "Hack SPACE program".

When you are reading sci-fi or space news and you get confused when people talk about "stable orbits" because KSP doesn't model decaying orbits unless you are in atmo...

When you're trying to install Minecraft mods, and you panic because you think you deleted the gamedata folder.

And this morning I woke up in that semi-delirious state you're in after you wake up, and I started thinking about creating a manoeuvre node to do my 'bed escape burn'.

I prefer the project Pluto engine (or any nuclear engine) (at least, if they're not used for destroying stuff)

When the forums look like this:

And when that little white thing on the bottom of a Cessna really, really looks like a communotron 88-88, and you intend to ask the pilot what it is, and then forget to, and then think that it's the antenna, and then remember that it's not!

And intend, huh? Lol.

When you derive the rocket equation for fun.

Which...

I've actually done...

Many times...

Man I'm a nerd.

Or maybe using GMAT to model trajectories...

When I ask myself if the engines will burn out when sitting in a plane.

When I remember 0.12 amd 0.13 - KSP was a game far different from modern KSP then.

When I remember the Kerbal Roleplay.

That is a frequent concern for a devoted (sorta) player such as I.

When you look at a real-life rocket, and start thinking away 5 possible ways to 

  1. Reduce its part-count (man, that must have suffered a lot of lag! Wait...)
  2. Build it in KSP.
  3. Make it sturdier

I literally once looked at a missile in a book about spaceflight and thought 5 ways to do all 3 of those. Unfortunatly I never got around to making it, and the type of the missile has been lost to time.

A semi-truck with low-bed was passing by, carrying two steam-rollers and the asphalt-laying machine, completely crowded front to end.

Thought 1. What a masterful packing of payload.

Thought 2. How would one put a fairing on that?

You know you're playing too much KSP when you end up getting a cool mission idea stuck in your head and you haven't finished your current grand mission ...

I really need to finish the Grand Tour. 2 More bodies to land and then i can return!
