Recommended Posts

The minmus shuttle mission/challenge is where you need to build a space shuttle capable of landing on minmus and returning. I've already done this, so I'm going to challenge you guys to it as well.

 

CairoJack, If you're Reading this, This is proven to be possible. Hard mode: Go to laythe using a shuttle. Scott manley mode: Go to eeloo using a space shuttle. This shuttle has to be strapped on the side of a rocket and at least 15 tonnes. all the parts must be stock and with a middle booster separating th the SRB's

Not to rain on your parade, but you may want to be a touch more specific. It would take very little to satisfy this challenge and you have no judging metric.

Read it -- won't bother. It's just tedious unless there is some kind of competition associated with it.

your shuttle was launched on top of a rocket, and it certainly wasn't 15 tonnes. you need the shuttle on the side of the rocket, and for it to weigh 15 tonnes or more

Those rules were added after I submitted my entry! :sticktongue:

From someone who has learned this the hard way: if you want people to enter your challenge, you should provide a competitive aspect to it. Like, "Build a side-slung-vertically-launched, horizontally-landed shuttle capable of delivering 15 tonnes of payload to the surface of Minmus and returning to KSC; lowest liftoff mass wins." That gives people something to optimize against and allows us to test our designs against each other.

Thanks :D! please don't hate this. I'm making it more challenging by you submitting your ideas! Thanks!

I forgot to note: no mods and the middle booster must be 15 tonnes. Visual mods allowed. Ty for the reminders XD edit: ok, you pass- More than pass: I mixed up the middle booster for the shuttle weight-- and you did it in career mode- you're scott manley- you have to be

I know, it's more an honesty thing. You said only mod when it wasn't

 

that shuttle was made months ago i quickly opened it and used it, at a quick glance thats the mods that stuck out to me.its not being dishonest just over looked.

next time OP will post the full rules to avoid these posts
