The launch of Olympus station


Recommended Posts

Olympus Station! A 230 part, 200 ton Station to LKO

Launch 1: Deliver the main body of the station to LKO

Attempts

Spoiler

Attempt 1: The side booster fell off mid-flight. It took 20 minutes, but the entire craft was destroyed.

Attempt 2: Tipped over too aggressively

Attempt 3: Boosters detached prematurely. Same fate as attempt 1.

Attempt 4, 5, 6: 2/8 main engines lost during booster separation. Gradual loss of control.

Attempt 7: Loss of 1/8 main engines. Unfavorable, but mission can continue. Second stage preformed nominally, Olympus is now in a 120 km orbit.

Nvm the game crashed upon 2nd stage reentry

Launch 2: Send temporary crew

Done, Although the TWR of the first stage  was that of a sounding rocket, shooting right off the launch pad 
Launch 3: dock ore tanks and ISRU to the station.

Done

Launch 4 and 5: Dock refueling tanks and send final crew

Shuttles suck. But, Part 1 is done. Part 2, yes

and i made my shuttle stable

Pictures is difficult on console, but my profile is durtypoolz and the finished product of the first launch is there 

(And some failures)

It seems like you may want to use some sepatrons for your boosters:sticktongue:.

I used 2 Flea boosters to optimize part count just a bit more.
