This allows zero-cost transfers for routes that can be managed with a single stage vehicle. I don't think that Real Solar System will allow for a low cost to orbit option due to the amount of staging involved. Perhaps it would work better if the trip were broken into parts: least-staging you can manage from KSC to orbit(with in-orbit refueling to further reduce costs) From LKO to Mun orbit should be doable with 1 stage, so refueling in Mun orbit should allow a zero-cost transfer for this leg. A single stage from Mun orbit to the surface should also be possible, so refueling should also allow this stage to be free. Bon Voyage should allow using an electric rover to create zero-cost routes between surface biomes. With refueling infrastructure in-place, it should be fairly cheap to make any single-stage runs you can manage(as it would be in real life), but trying to land something on the Mun in RSS with no in-place fuel infrastructure will not be cheap.(in either funds or transport credits) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
