ROVER TIME : EASY SCIENCE

FKF3TaP.png

22.9 science points is barely enough for a hot dog... Let's get some easy science points from all the facitlities (like taking candy from a baby :lol:).

Did you know you can also get science points here ?

I won't show all the boring stuff, but we have a lot of points now, so let's go shopping ! :cool:

I want the J-404 Panther so I bought the earodynamics to get there on the tree.

Now we need about 30 more points, so let's do some contracts.

I could go for the "leave the atmosphere" contract, but maybe later...

The easy ones:

Lets do 3 in 1. &)

As you can see I invested in the runway, it was only 75.000 funds.

only 4 more points needed...

I still have the Wheesley contract, to reach 13.000 meters I need 2 engines, so I designed this bird for the job:

Next is a double contract, test the Swivel engine splashed down and test the 1.25 heat shield.

I have the 450.000 now, but I need a bit more funds to pay for my missions.

Next up will be another survey contract.

TBC  UPDATE:

It seems I DO have enough funds to upgrade.

YES ! We now have the Panther jet engine, cool. &)

First we've set up a flightplan:

Now some contracts are "below" and some "above", so I might gonna miss some...We will see.

Next up is designing a jet for the job, 30 parts max. :cool:

.....And test flight/extreme landing.

So I was ready to take off and set my first target, the map showed me only half the contracts.

Looks like the tracking station fooled my by showing contracts I DONT HAVE !

I can't take on more contracts so here is our new flightplan :

Moarrr survey contracts.

9kWGNaH.png

I'm not doing them all because there are more contracts I want to get first.

Done, (did I tell you I made a new jet :lol:).

Mp2Ob8o.png

Time to go shopping.

DgGJbKZ.png

I forgot to take surface samples from the facilities, so it's time to get out our jetrover GTI.

MF7LGxm.png

LOL @ bridge :sticktongue:

2doAwUr.png

This gave us enough science points to do more shopping.

084HBAa.png

2.2 science points left, I need to invest in converting funds into science points.

Coming up:

I wish, my friend, let's just say I didn't live a healthy life and I'm now paying the price for it.

But let's stop talking about that. -_-

Well if science is your goal then 50 is good but you can’t make something with out funds unless you lear to reused every once of spent fuel. 

Make sure to have a fuel depot to refuel the crafts before recovering

Next time you play outside the stock game set @Snark made a wonderful vtol assist air breathing rcs jet. 

It uses stock parts and is pretty well balanced to the game. 

  I had a load of fun playing with flying bricks and an air intake

Smart. I hope to make enough money throug survey contracts, I'm only worried about not getting enough funds to upgrade the base. (no I'm not :lol:)

Looks fun, I wants it !

But how does this work ? I can't seem to find a file, do I have to copy the code ?

Why not also convert our reputation points to science points, what does reputation do anyway ?

Missed that before, sorry, here you go: https://www.dropbox.com/s/hwxc30wcjy6jz32/Jet 4.craft?dl=0 ^_^

Please also try my Rover GTI, it's very stable, the engine is limited, so just use full speed.

These crafts are made in 1.7, not sure if the will work in 1.6.

Yes, but if you wanna copy it from my drive it should be ready. Just drop the cfg file into your game data folder. I made a new folder and named it Snark to easily find it

Thank you, installed it and I will check it out, cool.

Contracts are done, I've decided to land on the island to get some forgotten science.

So I retracted my nosewheel to get a surface sample, seems the plane is so well balanced the nose won't drop. That is cewl.... :o
