Another scratchpad update a minute ago... Maybe the update will be any minute now, or half-an-hour, if not tomorrow (I expect tomorrow as being more reasonable, but am hyping possibly sooner)

Scratchpad doesn't mean anything except that they are working.  They update scratchpad throughout development.  The fact that they locked pre-release however may mean they are getting it ready.

Wait... If we are all on the Hype train... As it speeds up, time slows down for us, and if it hits a certain point... Then we will look like we're going in slow motion to outside observers! All aboard! Man this update looks good.

wait a moment, it is possible, although however unlikely, that this means they have found a build that they are somewhat happy with (at least for an hour).... this could be it, or it could be that squad is offline for the day..........

This reminds me of the ways in which Kerbal fandom has changed my life. I now find myself making jokes that would make Sheldon Cooper giggle; exclamations along the lines of "Man, those Delta IV's have some major delta-v!"

Also, whenever I start a youtube video in the back of my head all I can hear is a Scottish accented voice saying "Hhhuuuullloooooooo!!!"

I'm going to predict that Pre-release will hit at 20:00UTC tonight and Full release will be two weeks after that,.

Edit: just I typed that, another pre-release build got uploaded

Too bad Mexico City Dominos are all closed or we could try to send Squad a late night pizza, we still owe them one (or several) from like .25 or something. This still needs to be done, and we need to demand that they arrange the toppings into Kerbals using jalapenos and olives or something.

Ok so it's not out yet but if you check Steam the 1.1 pre release is GONE! Which means that it must be happening extremely soon. :D

Hmmmm..

All this interest in the build up to release and the 'will they, won't they, are they getting ready to...' discussion reminds me of my childhood in the cold war era.  I grew up in between two Vulcan bomber bases, not far off the flight path for one, so these things were always on our minds once old enough to have some sort of understanding.

...The Russians are having another military 'exercise' near the East German border.  Is it a genuine exercise, or are they just posturing or is it a build up to something bigger, and will they actually invade?

Of course the situation here is reversed, we hope/know that 1.2 (pre-release) will be released fairly soon and are in eager anticipation of that.  Back then though we hoped they wouldn't and were in fear in case they did.  The sense of anticipation seems remarkably similar though.

When you wake up on the hype train only to realize you forgot to put your seat in bed mode and are now going to have a sore neck all, darn day.

Someone remind me how to opt-in to the Betas on Steam, please. I did this for the 1.1 releases but I don't recall now. Do we need a code? There's no Opt In option on the Betas tab.

For the last three pages of this thread I have no idea what y'all blabbing about. Is the beta out or no?

This is a bit like kremlinology, but let me try anyway...

  1. It is not out yet
  2. There are signs in Steam that beta is being prepared for pre-release

No, it should pop up as a selectable option in the Beta tab of your ksp install on Steam.

Same experience except I lived between ICBM bunkers out in the cornfields of northwest Missouri. It was the occasional tornado warning sirens (also used for the "The Big One is Coming") that got us worked up.

Ah, thanks. I thought that's how it works. I remember having to actually opt back out after 1.1 was released so that the Steam would grab the intermediate hot-fix builds over the next couple days after the supposed "release," since the last official "beta" was earlier than the post 1.1 hot fixes.
