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

Recommended Posts

When you think back to the time they pulled a frieghter in a higher orbit with a railgun in a book in the Sci-Fi series Expanse and then suddenly think: "But the text implies them firing down, telling to stop firing while above the settelment, but they should have fired retrograde to get into a higher orbit!" and then go on to think how to explain that to the person who wrote the text without using prograde marker and radial/anti-radial for the whole church service...

...you're watching a KSP mod usage tutorial on Youtube and you start spamming the "." key because the narrator is taking too long to get to the point.

Too often, I find myself right dragging the mouse when watching KSP videos. For some reason I am frequently surprised when it doesn't work.

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

You turn up late for lunch at your grandparents house and your family laugh and all acuse you of not putting your clocks forward in the night when, infact you were up til 5.30am on KSP building experimental rovers.....

When you're in bored in class and begin to plan your next Jool probe. And when the teacher asks you a question, you say "I only need about 3000 m/s of DV to get into orbit!"

When you go to bed, close your eyes, and keep right on building that SSTO that didn't quite make orbit... 

Damn you, sir. You will fly.

When overtaking cars on the highway I think to myself "burning to lower orbit, lower orbit achieved, relative velocity to target is now approx 2m/s." ^_^

Isn't it like 2240 m/s, or am I just assuming that's for super low LKO, and you're putting it in like a 100,000 m orbit?

JT531 is probably counting the flight from ground level, fighting gravity and aerodynamic drag.

I know I'm playing a lot of KSP when I feel it is my obligation to inform people of this sort of thing whether they ask for it or not.

When you right click every screen/video to get a better view on the scene ... :blush:

When you start calculating masses and deltaV of common objects around you .... 

When you cant take alien movies serious anymore because all you see are not green aliens, but kerbals...
