This is station Pi.

Sorry I didn't see this sooner, nice job!  It's very round, but not quite irrational enough.  Overall, I approve :sticktongue:

So station 3.141492654

Fixed: 3.14159265

I'll give you partial credit for the 4 on the end just in case you were rounding up.  But next time just leave it, or add "..." (ellipsis / dot-dot-dot) to the end. :D

Well, I suppose with 749 decimal places no one is likely to check for errors.

Yeah, that was my plan. Although I know I didn't make any errors, after saying so many numbers, at the end I was just quietly mumbling

What was the subject of this thread again? Oh yeah, space stations.

Space Station Discovery, the first station of my 1.3 career playthrough.

The solar array isn't the original, as I didn't have gigantors available when I launched the station.

Thanks! Sad story the one about your HD, you've been unlucky. I'm also having some problems with my desktop: I'm currently using my 6 years old "battle" laptop.

Here are some other images of my full-stock shuttle in one of its mission to assembly the ISS

Talking about my space station and another "full-stock replica", here are some pics of my Soyuz

Very nice work you did there ! :) I love your space shuttle, so realistic ! I managed to build and fly one very similar, but it was tricky to manoeuver, espcially during the gravity turn... Lost with all my other craft... I'm currently experimenting two new models of shuttles and one launcher, with (I hope) will be 80% reusable :)

I love building and flying shuttles :) You're so proud of you once the shuttle has docked on a station :wink: But... I never managed to land one of them ^^

Probably cheating a little, but I will go one step further, instead of posting pictures, I'll post video :3
This station building process includes two very special mod groups, all authored by Nertea:
Near Future Technologies and Stockalike Station Parts Expansion
Me and my buddy RaiderMan plan to build this station as large (and functional) as we can until Kerbal decides to execute Attack Pattern Suicide :P

Finally managed to create my cuboid space station in career mode. Around 560 parts atm - not yet lagging. Yay!
No parts mods except for the tiny computer board from "Kerbal Engineer Redux" - so it's basically a vanilla space station.

*SNIP*

Only request is that if you decide to post more videos, could you make them 720p? 480p is so low res that it's rather unpleasant to look at, and makes your station look worse than it actually is.

Some more info: 16 launches so far (one for each part) - aligning the units was a little bit tricky with the cubic design, but it worked.

My plan is to add a few of those big orange fuel tanks to make this space station not only a monoprop refilling station, but also a liquid fuel/oxidizer refilling station.
Alternatively I could also attach some nuclear propulsion engines (once I have them researched) and fly to another planet with the whole cube.

So many possibilities :D

Afraid I missed your post before I got to the next part.  I am having a difficult enough time getting my Adobe Premiere (only version CS3) to play nice as it is (it keeps making files over 10 gigs), so bear with me for a while.  I will try to go through the settings and change this for part 5,... but I sometimes have a Reverse-Midas Touch when it comes to settings,... everything I touch turns to crap, lol.
But, I will do my best.  Until then, here is the next update, for those who are interested.  I apologize again for the low quality, this is a work in progress.

My first Station in Career mode at 1.3.

Core Block and 2 Hubs for more modules and BuildDrone (docked at left).

Vk73xNu.png

To do:

- Communications Module

- Science Module (Labs, and more)

- Fuel Depod Module

- Extra Power Module (Solar Panels and Batteries)

- Factory Module (Ore Processing)

- Escape Pod

- 2 Docks with light-signaling (to transfer Crew, Fuel and Ores)

Why not use Rockomax-like nodes instead of metallic trusses structures ? It should be more rigid and solid, and looks nicer in my opinion.

Still a very good start for a bigger station though :)

Oh I didn't noticed you were playing in Career... Sorry about that. 

Those hubs have a cool look, I think, especially for metallic structures like solar arrays attaching points :)

After I saw the assembly drones here I created one for my space station as well. With 2 z-1k batteries and an reaction wheel and 8 rcs thrusters it can move larger objects very well.4BS3Wv0.jpg

 

And I've also added a cockpit to the cube. The lights around the cockpit are inspired by the movie "Event Horizon" (they have a lot of lights arranged in circles) hence the name for my space station "SPACE HARBOR HORIZON".

Fair enough. I'll be very interested to see what happens then.

Hi This Is My space Station Not finished yet Need some other stuff pic of my space station https://imgur.com/a/brCj5 It Used  The station itself is stock The Things That Bring The crew and the the station parts are modded  And I Used a space shuttle And a rocket P.S The Mods for the rocket and the space shuttle and the planet are Planet: SSRSS Rocket:Kw Rocketery Space shuttle:Mk 2.5 Space Plane Parts o And That csm Is Procederal Parts(Made for Snacks Life Support)

Another update on my cubic space station:

I finally added proper solar panels and sent my crew up to the station - 13 crew members in total now. 4 scientists constantly working in the 4 labs to produce some good science which really needs a lot of electric power actually.

As you can see there are also already 4 "Nerv" Atomic Rocket Motors to transform the space station into a space craft.

Relatively to other creations here my Minmus station is simple. Played in career so every thing here grew as part of some sort of contract.

started off with Science-1 module (solar truss is not visible, sorry). as base expansions contracts came in i did not want to repeat the disaster that my Mun orbital station turned out and started it "right" - brought in center hub and the berthing sides. later it grew with Habitat module, KAS parts container, another science lab (not used , but contract for some reason wanted another one), Refinery + Ore storage.

station houses science lander with full array of instruments, ore lifter (as shown the second iteration) and Tug that is used to lower base modules to the surface and move the orange fuel containers around (as shown- visiting with container in tow).  pictured with My OPT "Tavor" SSTO craft stopping by for refuel before embarking to capture and bring back stranded kerbal with his craft from polar orbit of minmus back to kerbin.
