"Jeb, we're putting the band back together"

Recommended Posts

- It's 106 km to orbit, we got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark... and we're wearing sunglasses.
- Hit it. :cool:

So I was thinking orbit around Kerbin would be a great place for a gig, am I right? So I started building a stage...

Then to get it in space... The twin boars are pretty crazy, maybe they will do the trick... After initial testing I put more tanks on top of the construction to get the center of mass higher up, making it more stable. There is also some stacks of reaction wheels and RCS thrustes at the highest and lowest points of the craft. In the end it kept stable!

Don't worry, there are struts there to maintain structural integrity :P This craft has not passed wind tunnel testing tho

This decoupling of the main stage tanks and engines was... unorthodox

Waiting for the band to come on, and also to get in orbit.

Bill had to do some KIS/KAS tinkering to remove the middle support pole and other stuff. The craft on the right is for bringing the screw driver... The two swivels were enough as last stage to bring it to orbit.

The whole band got home safely, despite accidentally putting the heat shield and decoupler above the cabin... :confused:

 Cigarettes in space sounds so funny to me right now.

This is in orbit over Kerbin. Coming to think of it, I also have an asteroid in orbit. It would be cool putting it on top of it...

Amps are line-6, no coordination, weak sound systems, using telecasters to play Slayer. You gon need to improve.

Nice! 
If you set the stage up in a low grav environment and then use infernal robotics to make sections of the floor move up and down slightly, the effect is the Kerbals on the moving sections appear to jump and (kinda) clap. Only problem is I'm not sure how well IR is working in 1.3.x.

Nice idea! It was hard trying to herd 3 kerbals into position while screenshoting in space =S

Telecasters to play Slayer ... LMAO!

Guitar player: "I don't know man, I've turned the bass on the amp to 11 but it still sounds like we're playing in a helium atmosphere."
Sound engineer: does facepalm.

I'd put pest control under speed dial.

And by the way, with the line 6 amp it will sound like static more than audible notes.

Marshalls are the best amps ever. Too bad I have a Fender Mustang I, if I had a stack of Marshall amps all I would be doing is posing with them and a Flying V and striking huge, nefarious Edim chords that take up the whole fretboard.

^Kerry King being awesome. Plus the most evil headstock I have ever seen.
