  After getting the space 1999 eagle mod I found one called Eagle One and it came with a landing pad like on the show.  My question is how to get that sucker up on the mun?  It's way too heavy for any boosters or combo of boosters I have and it's all one peace.  So far it's stuck on the ground.  For that matter once we get to the mun, how are we going to land it?

Launch it.

Nonsense. Split it into discrete pieces if you have to. Those 3.75m parts make it ridiculously easy to get things to orbit.

Nonsense. You can put pretty much anything into orbit in KSP.

Skycrane. In pieces. However you gotta do it. That's the fun of the game.

It's ALL ONE PEICE.  Can't be broke down.

vOv then launch it all in one piece. How much does it mass?

It's "Gerry Anderson's Space 1999 Pack", right? Decided to bite the bullet and checked it out.

The transporter weighs about 308 tons and the fuel capacity isn't enough to get into orbit -or so it seemed.

Turns out that you have to activate main power, fuel reactor, cold fusion and main bus on the fuselage module, along with the generator on the cockpit module. Then the thing magically produces power and fuel, faster than the engines will ever consume. Not only it gets you to orbit -it takes you anywhere.

@BaelRathLianThat's what you've been missing. Time for me to get back to doing things the proper way :P

You're not asking about the craft, but the launch pad. My bad.

Anyway, tried to arrange engines and fuel tanks around it. But the way part symmetry works (basically, it doesn't) and the launch pad's high impact tolerance, makes me think it's meant to be hyperedited into position.

If you build your own booster system, you can get just about anything in space.

I put THIS on the mun.  Launched in one piece:

And I did it this way:

If there is a specific engineering problem you have, please let me know, and I'll be pleased to assist.

How many parts is that at launch?

   Well I just tried Hyper-edit and none of the versions on the site work with 1.2.9 pre-release version of the game.  Guess I will just have to get the newest version and figure out which mods I like still work with the 1.3.1 KSP.

That one was probably 2000, or 2500-ish.

Oh. Wow. Do you mind if we meet somewhere and trade computers? :D

Uh, well.  If we're going to be entirely honest, I melted the processor out of the one I used to make that.   That is not a euphamism or being clever.  I literally killed an Alienware m17x gaming laptop.  I remember the scene quite well.  I'd almost achieved orbit with a 7,800 part monster.  It had taken, in real time, about two hours to get to that point, and orbit hadn't been achieved yet.  Then it all went black, and there was a cooking smell.  Processor finally gave up the ghost.  I've been gaming on the same emergency replacement slaptogether ever since.   One of these days, I'll have to get around to putting a proper one together.

Here's "An Exercise in Absurdity", the mark 8.

The biggest one I have screenshots of.  That still flew.  Here's a landing gear weight support test.

That's the hardest part of the big builds.  Supporting all that weight.

EDIT:  Sad part is, me looking at that now, I can already see about a half dozen ways to seriously improve that design.
