Recommended Posts

@Nightfury Nice tree!  ...and awesome little shuttle with a +10 for the mission emblem.

Congrats on 100th post, and it earned a badge too!

Bill is the resident engineer, so he probably like to tinker with things right? In order to protect the KSC's more expensive things, I've made a tiny little RC car for him to mess around with. It goes slowly, so it probably won't kill anyone. Oh wait. I hear Jeb suggesting to stick a jet in it...

@EpicSpaceTroll139 Did you ever post your cool telescope?

I'll upload the telescope separate from the Kerismus challenge in a bit. I ended up going with a new small gift for Val so that there are gifts available for all the Kerbals in time for Kerismus

Introducing my official Kerismus Gift: the Toy LM!

As a pilot, I'm sure Val will love flying this model from that game she likes to play called "Human Space Program."

Buy one for here for you kerbals today!

If it's worth doing, it's worth overdoing.

Only part add-on used was Mun Pocket Edition for Pocket Vall. EVA Follower used for the tree dance that my family does every season. And my usual suite of visual add-ons and Ferram Aerospace Research is in use.

@Gordon Fecyk HA!  Now that was pretty comical!

The tree assembly looked too much like my own tree assembly each year.  ...and the little dance around the tree at the end was great!

Oh, and +57 bonus pts!

That was done by having each kerbal follow each other. With the EVA Follower plugin installed, right-click on a kerbal you're not controlling and pick 'Follow me.' From back to front I had Rick follow Jann, then Jann follow Bjarni, and so on up the chain to Doug following Bob.

I first saw Cupcake Landers use that and it added a lot of life to a scene.

I can't count how many times I've done Emiko Screenshots where I had to walk one Kerbal a ways, then a 2nd, then a 3rd, and try to make them look like they were following each other. This would be super handy to have!!! Thanks!!!  :D

Hey folks

To be honest, I didn´t think I would participate in this challenge, because I had absolutely no idea what to build for this one, but after a LOT of glogg at the local christmas market I suddenly had a very stupid and silly picture in my head...

This must be Kerbins first Christmas-Tree-Topping-Star Destroyer. The "Celebrator". Here shortly after docking with the topping.

Launching it was really, really, stupidly hard...

...landing - not so much.

So Merry Christmas everybody. May you have the most wonderful time of the year (and not too much stress with your relatives :wink:).

@KerrMü  Perhaps appropriate given that it coincides with the top movie of the week...  

However!  -137 pts because, "IT'S A TRAP!"  :o

We need more (stock) gifts! 

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

Will be doing my gift to Jeb tonite on my stream.

it will be fully stock, but it won’t fit inside a bay.

Anyways, I'm currently packaging the gifts and loading them onto Santa's sleigh. Not sure if I'll be able to get the video out tomorrow, but I should have it out in time for the deadline. I am having a minor problem though: My game freezes shortly before the parachutes are to open on test runs of Kringle's gift. :/

Lift off!

Docked in space. (My first ever "proper" docking!)

More fuel than I expected left so here we are landing on the second stage.

Success! I was quite happy with the very tree-like shadow.

Jebediah has everything he could want.  Big rockets, adoring crowds, friends.  But sometimes, he wants to be alone.  Alone to rest, alone to thing about the next big thing he wants to do.  But he doesn't have any place to go for his downtime.

Until now.

Valentina, Bob, Bill, Wernher, and all the other kerbals got together to give him a really special present.  Something that no one else in the world has.

His very own cabin, with all the comforts of home.

On Minmus.

Jebediah looks so happy in this picture:

Here is the journey of the cabin from Kerbin to Minmus

Jeb is so excited to go inside:

Another view of the cabin.  The desk is to the left, right behind him is the ladder to the loft, refrigerator just to his right and the stove/cooking area to the right:

Let's see what's upstairs:

Wow!  Here are the brains of the cabin!

Looking down the ladder:

Looking at the sanitary facilities:

The cabin is totally stock, 193 parts including the landing engines.  Without the engines, 185 parts.  There is a docking adapter at the rear of the cabin (you can see it in one of the images showing the cabin being flown to be delivered.

The Mun is one thing, Eve though... Also you cannot time warp while on ladders and a command seat slashes the TWR.

What caught my interest is that they were able to depart from Kerbin!   If it can overcome Eve's gravity...  the only need is to climb back into orbit; not traverse the planets.  I don't see time warp as an issue.
