Kerbal Space Program 2: Master Post

Recommended Posts

I have only 1 question.

People who got KSP 1 before a certain Date get the Expansions for free, will this carry over in some way like a discount to KSP 2?

otherwise this whole announcement has hyped me up

What about n-body physics? Dev post mentions binary bodies.

@SQUAD I'm still processing all of this, however if there is one thing I would ask for (even though I know you aren't making KSP 2, but you talk to Star Theory apparently), is that KSP 2 be available to play without an internet connection.  That is one thing that has ruined a lot of games for me.  I travel a lot, and when I bring my gaming laptop with me, KSP is one of the few games I can still play without an internet connection.

In the meantime, I look forward to continuing playing KSP 1.8 and beyond. I salute you. :)

One of my favorite features of KSP is that it is DRM-free. I really hope KSP2 is as well.

Look at all those parts... 
I hope part clipping still works, so we can be adventurous with how we use them. Though I would not mind if clipped parts cost you some of the fuel inside, or something like that.

I hope this time though, parts are properly fused together on contact. Currently, designing structures is all about where the root part is, and things flopp about, even going through each other.
I wouldn't mind some lost possibility for that logical, added strength.

It looks like there will be a binary planet system being ravaged by each other’s tidal forces, and maybe a young star system with multiple ringed planets.

I'm still reeling about multiplayer. Can we get an idea of what *sort* of multiplayer it has? Like, are we talking shared solar systems or are we talking co-op missions a la Making History?

Technical question: is KSP2 developed with the legacy GameObject Unity architecture, or with ECS/Jobs?

This is one I'd also love to see discussed! If it's been in development as long as I suspect it has, though, I doubt it - ECS only came out less than a year ago. That said, as long as they're not needing to be concerned with backwards compatibility, it might not be too big a job to change parts of it (e.g. all the ship parts) to use ECS and take advantage of that performance bump. That would be exciting!

My jaw hit the floor when i noticed the trailer recommendation. And then i realised it's not a joke or fan made. And then music kicked in... now i will dream about building and flying rockets again :)

Is there anyway we can know what quarter of 2020 KSP2 will be released or is that still under NDA?

Okay... Having the same vibes I was getting when Elon Musk announced BFR. it looks too good to be true. So I have a few questions...

1. Will it look as stunning as it does in the trailer? I'm guessing no as some cinematic trailers for the first game looked pretty nice too compared to the actual game.

2. Multiplayer will be in the full release, right? Or does that come later?

3. In the trailer, the surface looked really detailed. Will we get topography like that one place on Duna?

Other than that, I'm really hyped for the release. Also...

Will/does KSP2 require the same science grind from early rocketry, or will we start from a substantial tech base?

Me too. Not gonna lie, I teared up a little bit. KSP was my childhood and hopefully it will take me through college too.

First of all, YES!

HELL YES!

Second of all, what engine is it based on?

Also, any word on Linux support?

My jaw was on the ground watching that trailer, and then a tear of joy came when I saw the PS4 and Xbox logo’s at the end confirming its coming to consoles!

What about supported APIs? Will it use Vulkan, for example? If KSP 2 will be such a big thing, it will desperately need performance and stability
