PGTART Posted August 30, 2016 Share Posted August 30, 2016 (edited) For quite a while i've been trying to create 3 kerbals on a SSTO spaceship that is able to refill itself by use of Ore / karbonite With a goal of visiting multiple planets / muns beyond minimus and mun. I've been very close of making one so i believe someone eventually will make it.Mods you might use near future tech (electrics/solar/nuclear/ ... FAR (if not mention that it wasnt used), because its more realistic to use it. TweakScale (if you need it) USG robotics (if you need it) Karbonite (if you need it) Asteroid recycling tech (if you need it) Mods for different cockpits are ok to use if you want so. no objections to other mods if they dont contain extreme engine hacks or extreme lifting wings Space plane should contain (besides the other stuff). Mining (ore or karbonite ) to fuel converters Drills Tools to scan so you know where to mine (or else you endup lost in space). Electrics might be based on Nuclear / Solar No tanking by other planes or bases allowed, its SSTO Most likely flight path is, to aim for mun or minimus first, start drill and refill fuel operation there. From there visit some other planets or their moons to mine, then fly safely back on kerbin What makes it hard is the first part, takeoff from kerbin and still be able to reach mun/minimus and to land there As you will need a larger SSTO design to house the mining parts, while larger planes have more mass and make it hard to reachout to other planets and land safely. So this is quite a balancing act. You probably start of with air breathing engines and fly to Minimus using your inter-planar nuclear / electric engine. So show your ships builds or youtube if your able to do it. Edited August 30, 2016 by PGTART typo Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
