Magic Boulder is Back

Recommended Posts

1.1.3 just came out, and this is what I found in the anouncement: "...and and we even found time to hide something small in the game that we're sure a lot of long time fans will appreciate!"

What do you think it is? I definitely think it's some kind of easter egg; might even be the Magic Boulder :kiss:

EDIT: Also, it looks like they fixed the Monoliths

EDIT 2: And made them bigger! Sorry I'm editing so much, I'm just excited :D

UPDATE: New magic boulders have been found. Whether or not the old one exists is yet to be known...

It could be that or the Harvester monument people have been asking for.

It says 'long time fans' so it might well be the magic boulder. Good hunting kerbalnaughts!

Just checked K2 and the monoliths are so much more obvious! I'm glad they've given the easter eggs some love

From the 1.1.3 changelog:

* Added Felipe to crew name generation.

We did it! Kinda wish it was a little more than that, however.

 

From the HarvesteR easter egg OP. This might only be a distraction....

To be fair, they just said they hid something. They didn't specify an easter egg. I do hope it's more than that though.

Good point, hid. If they hid something, it wouldn't be in the change log, as if it were, it wouldn't be hidden.

Currently, the Magic Boulder fits the description hints they gave better than anything else.

You know, I realized this after posting. There's still hope

Glory or Death! 

But sandbox exists and you can travel through space with ten struts and a probe core if you're  a smart cheapskate

Unfortunately for me the wait is for my new computer

Hm... this is what i've found... I guess, it's not what they've hidden, because it was way too easy to find... Nevertheless i'm curious whether this stone has any special meaning...

The monoliths were always there... but I guess they are bigger now? some were below ground after terrain changes, I guess they fixed that....

someone tell me if they've put the magic boulder back in... i want... I want so bad... (can't play now)

They might have moved it somewhere else.  After all, the old location of the magic boulder is publicly available so it wouldn't stay hidden long if they left it where it was...

The monoliths are huge now. I had a weird issue in 112 and then clicked on steam and was amazed to see the 113 update in progress. After the update tried the same mission causing my lockup and all was well. And  I did notice on launch there was this huge black object off in the distance where the monolith should be.

I didnt have much time on 113 before shutting down for the night but I noticed how much smoother things seemed over 112. It seemed to have lost the jitters and misaligned navball. Perhaps I was just getting a goodly cpu hit from those. One thing was mechjeb is toast again. I use that to execute nodes I setup so now I have to actually pay attention to burn times lol oh the horror!

 

What if they didnt actually add any new easter eggs and just said they did to get back at everyone complaining???

LOL... you are right... in KSP 1.0.5 it was so tiny ;-) I've added second screenshoot - the difference is huge! :) I guess Squad's selfesteem has grown significantly with this KSP release :)

Yes, as well as making it quite a bit bigger, they've also raised it up so it sits on the surface rather than about half of it being underground...

(Incidentally, your old post is still only showing the one photo in the album for me, I had to view it on imgur.com to see the other one)

Maybe they put it near Dres to spite everyone? :P (And give another reason to visit)

The only real reason to visit Dres right now is the canyon. So it would make sense if they put the boulder there.

That's actually very interesting. I honestly think they added it to make us ignore the bugs and have something to do other than find bugs.

Well Dres has been having a lot of controversy as of now and I doubt that it would be there but it's not a bad idea seeing as there is NOTHING except the canyon. I'll have to go there sometime again.

If the Magic Boulder was moved to another celestial body, I would assume either Dres or Kerbin. Dres, because it is similar to Ike and often avoided, and Kerbin to replicate the Black Knight Satellite or to see how many people overlook it. Trolls from the developers?

Also, I come from the age of KSP 0.90, yet I still know about the Magic Boulder. I always wanted to see if I could put a poor kerbal on it, but alas, it was removed. :(
