A Mammoth plus two S3-14400 with just a Stayputnik at guidance?!

THIS IS AWESOME!

Have just remarked a part of the screenshot could have been bad for minors, had to crop it...

Ha! If you recall, the Stayputnik had reaction wheels then, and the Mammoth didn't get a name until 1.0 :D

Ughhh, it's hard now that you ask about... I start under 0.90 at the beginning of May 2015 then quickly stop due to a new job then restart only under 1.0.2. I missed nearly everything, including the Great Kerbal Leap Forward of 1.0 :( .

Didn't mean to be disparaging. :) Just reveling in the nostalgia myself and reminding myself about how far this game has come. For example, the unshielded 1x6 and 2x3 solar panels used to be retractable.

And you weren't, I tend to like self-criticism to remember "Dang! You missed that too!".

My first pic was taken two days after buying the game and was of the first satellite I put into orbit around the Mun. It was another week before I dared to send a Kerbal to the surface of it.

I think this was my first screenshot (first in my steam screenshot folder anyhow) and I believe was from 0.24.2

Like a bunch of others it looks like I deleted all my really old installs... and like others the first shot I can find isn't anything spectacular either :P

First shot of anything substantial ( don't ask why this seemed a good idea... )

While I had a habit of pressing f1 without really knowing what it did, just tapping through all the function keys, the first screenshot that I know that I wanted to take is this:

It is my first successful mun landing, which needless to say, did not remain successful for long.  It was not thought through at all and immediately after taking this I realized that I didn't have enough fuel to go home because I never connected fuel lines to the outside tanks, not to mention it lacked a parachute and decoupler :blush:.  I don't think I ever got them home. . .

I guess I was really proud of myself for finally landing something on the Mun.  For that matter landing something on somewhere that wasn't Kerbin.

Note how good I did with those fuel margins :)  Please ignore that like many before me, this was totally about my 10th try of landing something on the Mun.  And in my early stubbornness I simply refused going back to the VAB and fixing the darn thing.

My first screenshot, and first rocket to make it to orbit. Dated: Dec 20, 2014

Congrats on TotM!

I have no idea what my first screenshot ever was. I tend to delete them. The oldest one on my web server though appears to be this one, showing off a realistic starfield for the then Universe Replacer, which is now Texture Replacer if it's even a thing still.

It's from July 2013, so it's from about a month after I started playing.

This isn't my actual first, because my actual first was tapping random keys to figure out what they did. My first screenshot that wasn't mashing my keyboard was this:

When i got the game (May of 2015 i think), i immediately became obsessed with spaceplanes and space stations. Forget the planets, i wanted a big grand station and spaceplane system. Then i realized what partcount was and got sad because 30 parts lagged my crap computer at the time.

This is the first one I took... I had just understood how to make good rovers, and I wanted to post it on the forums here.   So I created an account both here and Imgur, and posted !

One is a Opportunity rover look-alike (which was destroyed when they changed the small control surfaces in 0.24 or 0.25, not sure).  The other is the "Lunar One" a Heavy Rover both automated or controlled via a command seat.  I had drove the Opportunity to the Lunar and took a picture of them both together.  I've loved roving ever since (please fix the wheels soon Squad, thanks !)

I remember it taking me at least 12 hours to get the hang of landing on the moon to deliver them there, let alone understanding how to make the ship itself. 

In my KSP universe, probes got to the Mün first... On December 22, 2013. ( Had been playing since Early-November... I think.  It's around there. )

 

EDIT: I have an older picture from November 2nd 2013, but it's just a set of landing gear on the Arctic continent of Kerbin , I probably did that by mistake so it did not count, lol

Excuse the awful quality, but back on 7May2015 I managed to compile a trash can of parts together with no regard to efficiency or aerodynamics and escape the Kerbin neighborhood. I was thrilled with myself and felt like a genius. Here's the vessel that took me there.

I was playing for a while before I started taking screenshots.  My first is a upper nuclear stage delivering a cupola to my first space station, based on the stock space station core:

I've got a good one for this - My first orbit in KSP, back in the 0.7 or 0.8 days:

Sunrise%20over%20Kerbal.jpg

It was far from my first orbit ever (I came to KSP from Orbiter - shhhh!) but I was still pleased, considering there was next to no instrumentation at the time.

Dear lamps, did you take a picture of your screen with a phone?

Welp, if we're tossing up our first intentional screenshots, then I think that'd be this thing here from August 4th 2013, instead of that barely visible thing I posted upthread:

'Looks like I thought the sunrise was cool.  Disturbingly, that ship seems like it intentionally ditches a nuke.

It was the only time I've ever done so intentionally. I had a friend who played KSP as well and wanted to show her the milestone I had just achieved, and it just so happens to be the oldest screenshot I could find.
