[1.6.x] Kerbal heatshield

Recommended Posts

YAY, this is my first mod. Thanks to people who supported me, and @SpannerMonkey(smce) for teaching me how to mod.

After years of investment and R&D, this is what we come up with. A golf-ball looking heatshield for kerbals.

HOW TO USE:

1. get it in your inventory.

2. get into a suborbital trajectory.

3. Equip the heatshield.

4. BURNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN

A simple demonstration, by kottabosgames: 

 

 

5. deploy personal parasail, wait for full deployment.

6. once you have full deployment, DIVE and pull up to get yourself flying

7. Land.

DEPENDENCIES: KIS and all its dependencies:

Download: https://spacedock.info/mod/1925/Kerbal heatshield

License: CC-BY-SA 2.0

CKAN is supported.

Install instructions: copy the "kerbal heatshield" file in the .zip to your gamedata file.

Q&A

1. IS XDTHEGREAT NUTS?

No, I am a human.

2. Will you do more stupid stuff like this?

YES. GIVE ME IDEAS.

3. Is there more stupid stuff I can do with this mod?

Yes. Use your imagination!

4. Why does the heatshield look like a golf ball?

This is what our XD team developed, and is totally not because I am a noob and is lazy.

5. Why should I choose this mod?

Prevent kerbals from burning up collecting eva reports in the upper atmosphere, and can incinerate kerbals without risking them die. Or uninstalling the mod and let them pop.

 

DISCLAIMER: I DO NOT TAKE ANY RESPONSIBILITIES FOR EYE OR MENTAL DAMAGE DUE TO THE UGLY GRAPHICS AND CRAZY IDEAS.

ENJOY.

That reminds me one idea Nasa acutally had back in the years 2000. Having personal heat shield like bathtub inside which the astronaut could come back safely to Earth from the ISS. After the heat part of the journey completed, the astronauts would have deployed parachutes just like paratroopers do.

Ah mainstream media when they don't know what to talk about...  I bet this resurfaced during the  Shuttle Columbia didaster.
