Threads Of The Month April!

15 posts in this topic

Welcome back to another installment of the KSP forums Threads of the Month :D

Here we look back on (and pin, messing up the forums) some great threads that you, our members, have made!

Remember, if you see a thread that should be in a TOTM post in the comments below, or inform your friendly neighborhood moderator :)


See March's TOTM here.

 

Picking popular posts this month are...

@Dman979!

@AnonymousAerospace!

@Deddly!

@Frybert!

And...

@Snark!

 

Lets get cracking!

 

First up is a now permanently pinned thread by @CarnageINC, the Add-on development mod library!

 

In Mission Reports we join @TheEpicSquared, through hardships to the stars...

 

@Servo and @NorthAmericanAviation provide the craft this month, in fact they provide a jet a day, I can't keep up with their ingenuity.

 

Our challenge this month is courtesy of @Rath, can you make a safe airliner in a universe of explosions and breaking joints? Find out!

 

@MatterBeam brings us an incredible hand-drawn animation of the Falcon reusable booster, more people need to see this!

 

Unusually for TOTM, we dip into the Tools forum to take a look at @OhioBob's automatic atmosphere tool.

 

We go gardening in the Lounge with @UnusualAttitude, what will you grow?

 

And finally, with the localization update now in pre-release and more languages on the way, we look back at the incredible efforts of @simon56modder, @Thomas P.@Galbar, @iceolator88@Gaarst@Vandest@Nansuchao@-DDD-@Allan Sche Sar@fitiales@Proot@astropapi1@Pesterenan@SevenAnarck@De780@Helmut and everyone else who contributed to bringing translations to KSP with the community language patches.

 

That's all the threads for this months TOTM, and also my last TOTM for a while as I'm leaving Squad and the Kerbal Space Program forums for a long awaited and much needed break, I'll be taking at least a year off travelling Europe and making my way East over land to see the Alps, Moscow, China, Hong Kong and Japan, where I'll catch a plane to Mexico and spend my days with a lovely lady, returning to the UK is not a plan.

I'll pop online a bit over the next few weeks, but this is goodbye from me for now, Squad says I have a job with them when I'm ready so I'll see you all again.

The TOTM will be continued by the amazing moderators 

@Supernovy @Red Iron Crown @Vanamonde @sjwt @diomedea @AmpsterMan @Deddly @DuoDex@fcbayerndm @Frybert @goldenpeach @luizopiloto @Tex @monstah @NecroBones @Niemand303 @Rainbowtrout @Snark @sumghai @TheKosmonaut @Val @DYJ @Navy4422 @purpletarget @shadowsutekh and @Rich

And huge thanks to everyone at Squad both old and new, especially @HarvesteR @Mu. @NathanKell @Claw @sarbian @Porkjet @Arsonide @Ted @KasperVld @Capt'n Skunky @Damion Rayne @Rowsdower @Maxmaps @nightingale @Squelch @technicalfool @JPLRepo @TriggerAu @ManeTI @Samssonart @nestor @UomoCapra @Ziggy Stardust @Robbonaut @RoverDude @bewing Leticia, Paulina, Fernanda, Julio, Pablo, Bjorn, Adrian, Ezekiel and the awesome Roy!

Finally, and most importantly, a special mention for the wonderful @Badie :)

See you in a few years!

So, this is your public goodbye...

It was a good run. Nice to know you'll be spending your remaining days this side of the pond, my couch will be closer by than I previously thought.

Have good journeys! :)

It's been an excellent slew of months under your guidance, Sal. There's no doubt that the forums will miss you, but we'll keep on ticking no matter what.

The two years of moderation I had would have been much more difficult without your guidance. 

I hope you have a nice trip and good luck with your future plans :)

 

 

(if you happen to pass anywhere near the country I live indon't hesitate to ask me any question you may have :) )

 

 

* I know it's a strange way to say it, but I would prefer not to have the whole forum knowing where I live :wink:

Sal, I'm sorry to see you go, but you definitely earned the time off.

Be free, and don't worry about fighting fires now.

Honestly, I'd be fine if this isn't an April Fool's prank. Sal deserves a Grand Tour.
