UPDATES

****CHALLENGE CREATED 03.07.2017****

                                                                                                                                                                                                            

RULES - PLEASE READ THESE BEFORE ATTEMPTING THE CHALLENGE

                                                                                                                                                                                                            

The Seaplane to Orbit challenge is inclusive and I'm usually willing to have rules stretched to the nth degree, so get creative and join the party board or gatecrash:
 

1. Stock and Modded are permitted (Modded is defined as using modded engines, lifting parts, fuel tanks etc).

2. The craft may not lose any parts in flight (unless the award category allows it)

3. The craft run must start from water, reach orbit (PE > 70km) and land intact on water or land.  It is accepted that you load your craft on the runway.

4. You may not cheat in any way - Test my leniency sure, but no classic cheating please.

5.   All missions require either an album showing each stage of the flight, or a video showing all stages of the flight.

6. Once you have completed a mission, please post your proof in this thread for my review including a breakdown of your score and some basic information about your craft including mods used.

Is it okay If I do this in 1.2.2? - It should still work in 1.3....

Also, what do you think about quantum fuel storage (read fuel clipping)?

Yeah go for it - On both counts.  As an extensive clipper it concerns me not, but try not to clip 50 tanks into one - Keep it at least 'semi' real :wink:
