Gustav Kerman Kolst's Challenge - OPM

Recommended Posts



Holst's The Planets Suite is a suite of 7 classical pieces relating to the astrological characteristics of the planets in the Solar System, except Earth.

The 7 planets are in the suite in this order:

  • Mars, Bringer of War (Duna)
  • Venus, Bringer of Peace (Eve)
  • Mercury, The Winged Messenger (Moho)
  • Jupiter, Bringer of Jollity (Jool)
  • Saturn, Bringer of Old Age (Sarnus)
  • Uranus, The Magician (Urlum)
  • Neptune, The Mystic (Neidon)
  • (Pluto, The Renewer) (Plock)

Oh, yeah, Collin Matthews' "Pluto, The Renewer" is sometimes included after Neptune.

This is where you come in. The challenge is to send a spacecraft to every planet in said order.

The rules are:

  • You may visit each planet ONLY ONCE and in the order above. However, you can visit Kerbin, Kerbol, Dres etc. as many times as you like.
  • You must submit a copy of your successful attempt video to this thread.
  •  You must have the "Outer Planets Mod" to get Sarnus, Urlum, Neidon, and Plock.
  • You must do it with one ship or probe.
  • The original rocket has to cost under or exactly 1,000,000 kerbucks.
  • The pilot has to be Jebediah Jones Kerman. 
  • You can have Kerbal Engineer Redux & Precise Node Alignment.
  • ISRU is allowed.

Bonus points if you:

  • Return home to Kerbin safely*.
  • Successfully drop Kerbonauts off safely* at the planet in question as you fly past it (or a moon for the gas giants.)
  • Include Plock after Neidon.
  • Use Principia.
  • Complete the challenge in Career mode.
  • Did not do any gravity assists past Kerbin or Kerbol.
  • Complete a sub-challenge while doing this (such as Jool-5, Jool-Sarnus-10, etc.)
  • Play the corresponding planet's composition as you fly by it. (Bigger bonus if you play Jun Nagao's Earth as you return home.)

*i.e. no crash landings, explosions, etc.

Good luck, and hope you have fun failing epically. :sticktongue:

RSS is significantly harder to do this than OPM. I think these should at the very least be on different leaderboards.

What Camacju said. Why are two completely different challenges being listed under one board?

Alright, I'll put only the OPM version here. But still, have fun failing epically!
