How many rockets you accidentally destroyed?

Recommended Posts

Alright, for this first time, i'am asking a question for the KSP Community how many rockets you accidentally destroyed.

For my first time playing KSP, I builded a small rocket-missile like, uh.. i forgot staging the rocket

cause i didn't know how to play.

Now i wanna see your history ;)

Too many to count :D 

Staging issues are a pretty common cause, but I've also lost a lot to landing failures. 

My most impressive loss was when I set up an intercept with another craft in orbit I was intending to dock with, and ended up colliding with it half an orbit later!

I'm a big believer in Revert or F9.

# of failure = exp((# stars in this universe)*(grains  of sand in the Sahara))

That would be zero then as the correct term is 'sand grains'.

The very very first time I've ever played KSP, I chose to play career mode. (pretty surprising, but I switched to sandbox soon after) With the limited amount of parts I had, I made the standard starter rocket with tiny fins, solid booster, pod, and parachute. I was ready.

My fingers slowly pressed into my spacebar, and I watched as my booster and parachute both deployed at the same time, soon after crashing into the ground.

Then I learned what staging was.

Hell, I do that every time I start a new career game.

There's no reason those two should be on the same staging level.

Too many or not enough, depending on who (Mortimer or Werhner) is asking.

The more interesting question is how many did I deliberately destroy?

I can't actually answer that one. I've played since .18 was the demo and bought my first actual game when it was .22. Oh, and I still have catastrophic failures... :)

About 1 mole of rockets, give or take a few quadrillion.

Planes are a whole different matter, in that I try not to destroy them. Destroyed planes are probably somewhere in the thousands.
