The ugliest thing you've ever put into orbit.


Recommended Posts

Very simple really. What's the least visually appealing monstrosity you have ever defaced the cosmos with? (Vehicles made to look ugly don't count as much). If you remember, please state the purpose of that craft as well.

This is a space station module.

"Ever"? Probably this thing from way back around the 1.0.2 era. I wanted hoop-wings and neon pink, ok? Don't judge me! :mad:

It's not ugly... It's exotic... why do you think it's ugly? ಠ_ಠ

Jool 5 mission?

nope... just for Laythe... had a lander on the back between the engines, and that 3 probes.. the probes in other hand was used to map all the Jool moons... using ScanSat.

Really guys?  I wouldn't consider ANY of the ships posted so far to be ugly (in fact I'd be proud if I had designed at least a few of them posted here).  Mostly symmetrical, logical layouts for the most part, aerodynamic, etc.

However, if you really wanna see a rat's nest, then I present to you: Hobo Station (built it back in 0.90 I think)

No rhyme, no reason, no semblance of order.  The idea was just to get modules kind near each other, then use KAS to attach them together.

On half of em, I didn't even remove the upper stage.  Enabling SAS causes the whole thing to start oscillating and... well... pulsing.  If not for KJR it may have already ripped itself apart. 

Oh, and if I enable all the engines and activate them... well you see how they're all pointing different directions? :wink:

Edit: By the way, the purpose of this station was to see if it was more economical to forgo docking manuevers in favor of a rendezvous, then attachment via Kerbal.  I had thought that perhaps it would save weight on MonoProp, help the dV margins slightly, or otherwise make it all a little more efficient.  Long story short, it didn't.

That is the most beautiful craft I've ever seen. Now I feel the need to make something like this for the STS challenges.

What's that mod to show drag?
