We need more (stock) gifts! 

Some smaller items that could fit in a Mk2 or Mk3 cargo bay would be nice.

Hmmm... I could create some gifts to fit in a cargo bay (I have a few ideas in mind)... but then I wouldn't be able to give this thing to Val. :/

I've got small-ish gift ideas for Bill or Val... 

I'm just waiting for someone to post one, so I can post the other.

Big gifts come in small packages. Something that can actually fit under the tree would be nice. :)

What can you actually do with the badges?

Mostly just bragging rights... something fun to show off in your signature. :D

You're thinking of this the wrong way.

A tree that fits over the gifts would be nice.

You will be sent the badge in private message by Baddie Darth Baddie at some point, typically after the challenge is over. You can copy it, then go to account settings --> signature and paste it there. By right clicking it, or double clicking, I forget which exactly, you can then see options for resizing it and such.

@alekkat

Typically people resize the badges for display in signatures.  That "badge" you put in your signature is actually a Mission Flag, that you can copy into a game folder. It's already the exact 256x160 size required for flags in the game.  If you want to put it in your signature I'd suggest maybe resizing it to maybe a 50 to 75 pixel height.  For the badges in my signature below, I sized them all to 75 pixel height.  Also, I assign links to all my badges to point to the accomplishment or thread of interest.

In your KSP GameData folder, make a directory called "_MyStuff" and add a folder called "Flags" and put the gift flag .png file into that directory.  Then start your game, and it will appear as a mission flag you can use in the game.

Since the badges have been completed... and are seasonal in nature...  I have permission to distribute them at any time. 

Just depends if anyone would like to have theirs now?

Don't tell Bob I've made him a telescope. He will of course love it as an astronomer.

@XLjedi since I also made a gift for Val, can I use both these gifts I created? I am of course going to share them both on KerbalX.

Wow, those are clever legs! 

The rules are specific in that you only get to post one gift for the "Better to Give" badge. 

We just need one for Bill or Val posted now...

True... Also now that I think about it Bob also might get disappointed if St. Nik played favorites and gave Val a giant present and him the it bitty telescope too. :P Maybe Val can get her everywhere-with-less-atmo-than-Kerbin lander next year.

Edit: though if presents for Val don't show up soon, I might go with her gift as I believe there was a science lab rover earlier in this thread for Bob.

@Darth Badie or @XLjedi... just so I'm clear, what's the official deadline, the 4th?

Can't help but wonder what's in that big gift box though...  maybe you could just post some pics for fun?

January 2nd :wink: 

OK.... Jan. 2nd is still good. I'm trying to get my next Emiko chapter done by Christmas at the latest, and not ending the Challenge until the 2nd will still give me a few days to play around with it. Thanks!!!

Assuming an adequate ore deposit is targeted for the landing spot, this thing can SSTO from anything with less atmosphere than Kerbin. So Laythe, Duna, Tylo, Mun, Vall, etc. Don't worry about the drill apparently not touching the surface. The suspension is squishy enough that the weight will allow it to touch the ground. Val likes piloting and exploring the places, so she'll enjoy using this for those purposes, as well as to just get away from the others every now and then.

Edit: Pictures are not quite up to date, fixed radiator panels have been replaced with the extendable type.
