Causal KSP Missions

 

Simple Missions that I want to do.

No stories, no grinding, no mods.

Technically played in Career mode. 5,000 starting science to have enough parts to make things look cool. Max Rep and Funds payouts. Default Science payout.

RnPT9Xa.jpg

Again, the transfer stage is fully recoverable.

Spoiler

d9OiMxN.jpg

Launch 4... Yes 4. I should have taken pictures of launch 3. it was a spectacular failure.

W0nswSV.jpg

The service craft couldn't guide the original parts into place.

TgrpYjx.jpg

So the solar panel arms had to be redesigned to fly themselves.

HiZmdh0.jpg

Arm #2 heading to its port.

The KRV docked to a fully operational OSS.

3DlEjts.jpg

Transfer stage safely recovered.

py2zLaq.jpg

Yoko, Sam, and Kaioti Approaching the Orbital Science Satellite. There was a flaw in its design. It didn't have enough battery to send all data. Unfortunately the thing started spazing out.

1k9NHxy.jpg

Science expert Kaioti approaching the Satellite.

93Ygz8K.jpg

At this point it was deemed too dangerous to continue the approach.

jNWYvdK.jpg

Final image of the Satellite before it was de-orbited. (Had to use cheats. It was a blur when I took the picture.)

NuEkvlI.jpg

Image of the KRV before reentry.

G37ouYk.jpg

Reentry.

H00Fz0D.jpg

 

EODESfD.jpg

A somewhat successful Mission.

Mission 4: Actually Science on the Orbital Science Station

 

Wx7Vz25.jpg

After the Failure that was the Orbital Science Satellite, it has been decided to send a reusable Science suite directly to the OSS.

Mission in the drop-down.

Spoiler

bGhhb2L.jpg

The rocket used was a 2 stage unrecoverable thing.

OaoPg9B.jpg

Here the second stage is separating from the main lift vehicle.

wo6kJx3.jpg

Once nearly in orbit, the science module releases from the second stage and attempts rendezvous with the OSS.

fbsPscz.jpg

Rendezvous.

xYv10OY.jpg

Now that the OSS has actual science to study, the module can return to Kerbin.

GayOn9m.jpg

Reentry is easy when you have spare fuel.

YyPoE9I.jpg

The module can now be striped for parts and reused.

Mission 5: Mun Satellite Network and Munar Rover

Otk1EkG.jpg

Sent satellites and a rover to the mun. Worked better than expected.
Mission in the Drop-Down.

Spoiler

4ZRFuee.jpg

I Calls it a Lollypop Rocket. It is terrible.

dNey8Bh.jpg

Second Stage, transfer/sky crane, and 4 satellites.

CEWO8L7.jpg

Second Stage away. Burning for the Mun.

S5GnqQ6.jpg

Release of the Satellites. I didn't take pictures of positioning them. Kind of redundant.

hLW0Y62.jpg

Munar Descent.

zTkwlyb.jpg

I had fully expected to run out of fuel and this image to be a crash. Pleasantly surprised.

NrOnRb2.jpg

An Image of the Rover.

LNCDCIF.jpg

My first time ever using a scanning arm.

Mission 6: Minmus Satellite Network and Rover [Semi-Failure]

HVnqZ4H.jpg

Sent Satellites and a Rover to Minmus... Sooo many Mistakes.

Mission in the Dropdown.

Spoiler

UWwDnlj.jpg

With the Mun launch being a wild success. We launched a Sat network and Rover to Minmus. One major design change was to eliminate the Lollipop payload.

A0Wffb4.jpg

Lunch went well and I'm loving the new skins from the recent update.

iJW9I8U.jpg

Separation of the main stage.

3p9Mt9p.jpg

That fairing is sooo cool.

WWhtbXR.jpg

Launching the Satellites. Only now did I realize there is only one solar panel. Not sure what happened.

3dUy0uK.jpg

On descent we realized there is no way to separate the transfer stage.

9PWOm9a.jpg

While a controlled crash was required to land, the rover deployment system had been damaged somewhere in the mission.

A3Zi3AB.jpg

Reaction wheels had been forgotten in the initial design phase. Here is an image of the rover uncontrollable rolling downhill.

S5VNNt9.jpg

With solar panel damaged the rover only managed to send a few bits of data before going silent.

Mission 7: Mun Scanning Satellite

sqtVSCN.jpg

Scanning Satellite for determining a Kerbal Landing Site on the Mun.

Mission in the Dropdown.

Spoiler

RpJOXbo.jpg

Successful Launch. The solid fuel boosters weren't working in the first test flight. Not enough Gimbling going on.

ewwr6Sp.jpg

Booster Separation. Always one of my favorite stages.

x2rhMQH.jpg

Separation of the Main Launch Vehicle.

xfQUla8.jpg

Deploying of the fairing. I like the clam shell better. Forgot to switch it.

ysFa6kL.jpg

While screwing with the separation in anticipation for the shot, Kerbin was setting in the back ground. the shot was rushed and I wasn't able to get the perfect shot.

fdbl7zW.jpg

The Scanning Satellite in full action. Kerbin peeking around the Mun. I love these booms.

[Mission success]

Spoiler

YWU4s5C.jpg

A bit funny looking, but it launched well.

Fic9a5c.jpg

Obligatory booster drop image.

GdoptnQ.jpg

Main booster drop.

YPLrBSM.jpg

Didn't have enough fuel to crash this into the Mun. Was running a little tight so I just let it fly off to orbit the sun.

XwmAlls.jpg

The decent.

kn4y2Bn.jpg

Lander is on the ground and open.

9NPfpuc.jpg

Deploying Science stuff. This is my first time using this stuff in an actual game.

75WLMgb.jpg

With Sam back on the ship, Kaioti and Tyler take the buggy out for a joy ride.

BoFDbP0.jpg

Mission 9: It’s Probin' Time

kkLGI7u.jpg

Probes sent to Duna, Ike, Eve, Gilly, and Moho.

Mission in the Dropdown.

Spoiler

D6jdSpF.jpg

Two I identical rockets were launched.

vm55cno.jpg

Booster separation is still one of my favorite parts.

uDwBKUZ.jpg

Dropping the payload (the Probe) into orbit.

jGa2d5a.jpg

Originally designed to land back on Kerbin, both lift vehicles failed and crashed.

WFtSCy9.jpg

I love that engine plate skirt stuck on there. Looks cool.

tKfSl96.jpg

Fly-by of Ike. What happened to that skirt?

wclLUkr.jpg

Used experiments where sent into the planet. Above is a pretty picture of Duna, the sun, and Ike.

OQvbD4Z.jpg

Meanwhile, further in the gravity well. The other Probe has hit Eve.

42SWiRt.jpg

Fly-by of Gilly.

f82eMlP.jpg

There was even enough Delta V and science equipment to place the probe in orbit around Moho. Damn those Ion Engines are efficient, and sooooo slow!

Spoiler

VIqk3NF.jpg

Dropping of the boosters is still my favorite part.

And there goes the whole Duna-Ike science package.

edPUg1p.jpg

Fast forward to orbit around Ike.

x58yiPw.jpg

One of the 2 Ike Landers on decent.
