Dropbox download: THE DUNATIAN 2.4 ... I`m glad about very few rants. Welcome to Stock KSP / Making History no mods requiredDIFFICULTY: I made this Mission for seasoned KSP Fans, casual players may find themself in a weird, uncomfortable, confusing situation or simply so lost that it might seem utterly nuts. Don`t start this mission without ample supply of coffee, icecream and potatoechips. Don`t start this mission between monday and sunday if you have serious business in RL going on. Your doctor won`t be able to help you with certain orbital maneuvers. Rather call Jet Propulsion Lab guys or Roscosmos. Use quicksafe , there is no shame about, i do aswell. You can safely use time acceleration while roving and running ion engines (force ions with ALT+> key to 4x). Bob was left behind on Dunas surface, his fellow crewmates Jebediah, Valentina and Bill thought he was poofed unsuspectedly during a physicsglitch, they launched with the DRV back to the KERMES, a rather large interplanetary transfervessel in Dunas low orbit - full of sorrow and quite unamused they messaged the sad news to their friends at the KSC... But Bob survived, and after a extended nap under the rover he realised what happened to him. While pulling a broken antenna out of his butt he began to wonder how he might get back to Kerbin, but chances seemed pretty bad since the glitch cutted him off from any communication with the KSC. So he started out gardening in the habitat, grew potatoes on soil and crap, and went wandering along the dunes around the hab, thinking about snacks, boosters and rocketfuel. Far above him flew occasionally a small survey satellite which was decommissioned some time ago, but a few months after the accident someone back on Kerbin finally noticed something unusual... And here is where the mission starts, you have to manage the chars and vessels which are currently around Kerbin and Duna to make it happen, bring him home! Read ALL the messages in-game and objectives closely, they provide further advice - You start about 13 days before performing the "Rich Kerman Maneuver" with the KERMES, restock the KERMES in due time - Funding is enabled, Bobs lifeinsurance company kicks in at some point - Bend your mind around the commnet constraints, avoid loss of control while maneuvering, think ahead - Manage scarce resources while roving across Dunas landscapes, chose from two vehicles and evaluate your strategy - Construct (or use prefab) the KRES V Supply mission that must reach Bob ahead of the KERMES - Perform unusual maneuvers, launch, orbit and capture retrograde, high elliptic rendezvous, probedropping maneuvers, and more - Construct (or use prefab) the KAIJANG KHEN resupply boosterrocket to intercept the KERMES and refuel the vessel - Land and drive to the KRES V Supply probe to secure Bob`s survival (Scoring) - Find a way to the KRES IV Ascendvehicle in the Skiapparellicrater, board the vessel, launch and meet the KERMES in orbit - Construct (or use prefab) the DreamChaser Shuttle and recover Bob back on the Dessert Runway (Scoring) - Gold-, silver- or bronzeaward, depending on your performance - LV-N nuclear rocketmotor is not available in this mission - And much, much more, find out yourself Technical: - Buildt and tested in KSP 1.4.3 /MH 1.2 - Terraindetail on default/ high - Scatterdensity 80% - Prefab vessels have being used to verify the missiongoals and work as intended Special thanks to @Dexter_D for discovering final issues and bugs Mind you:NO SUPPORT for modded installs in this thread including visual (i.e. scatterer) and informative (i.e KER redux) ones.
