Well.. I've build a Harvester :D This is a Space Flight Simulator and i played it so much that i've felt teh urge to build a Harvester.

So did you guys ever wondered about those tons of food your Kerbals must eat on those everlasting interplanetary missions? It has to come from somewhere and since KSP doesn't led you run supplies in stock, it has to be done automaticly in the backround. hm....
Ever wondered why Kerbin has no cities? Simple! They use evey hectare of fertile ground to harvest wheat and this vehicle makes it all possible. :P

Kerbals love their bread! On long missions to distance worlds it reminds them of home. But there wouldn’t be none if it weren’t for the Kerbal farmers. Every day and night, hard working Kerbals sit on top of their Harvesters working the field, knowing they are the backbone of the Kerbal Space Program! Liquid Fuel may light the Engines, but food fires up the Kerbals :D

Well that's atleast the backstory that came to my head when i finished this "rover" :D

 And it's a pretty accurate looking harvester!  Especially the head unit.  I downloaded it right when I saw it.

 I've always called it a Combine.  You need a farm dumptruck now, or a semi truck with a hopper type trailer.

I think @Jon144 has one, it might be too big though :wink:

OK!

 With @SpaceTrashCan's permission here's the file with spinning, um, rotor head?  Not sure what to call it.  And movable uhhh dump arm?  Transfer arm?

 I didn't put a docking port on the arm, but there is an airbrake on Button1 to hold it at home position so it doesn't flop too much when driving.

 Combine in a space game - love it.

The "spinning, um, rotor head" is called a reel. The movable dump arm is called the auger. And yes, the general term for the machine as a whole is "combine", although harvester is technically accurate.

The term "combine" came into existence when the harvesting and threshing components were "combined" into one machine. 

Having grown up on a farm (as indicated by my profile pic), I really appreciate this :)

Wow this is soo realistic ! Incredible work ! :)

In France we call that a "moissonneuse - batteuse ", it says both the 2 usages of this machine : the harvesting (moisson) and the threshing (battage) :wink:

The rotating parts are full stock? Amazing !

Not exactly sure how I didn't see this until. Gosh I love the way we build things in this game completely unrelated to the title of the game xD.

"Kerbal Space Program"

Then here we are making cars, helicopters, and freaking combine harvesters! :P

Nice work! I love it!
