The Planetary Time Challenge

Recommended Posts

I'm surprised this hasn't been done yet, did a quick search before I posted it just to make sure.

Anyway, the challenge:

The Planetary Time Challenge

-Image coming later-

This challenge, is to simply be the quickest (without dying as well, with the exception of Jool) to land on a certain planet/moon (you don't have to come back but you can if you want, I might make a special list for those people). Want to try and beat the previous record holder and become the fastest or attempt a planet that hasn't been done before and set your own record? It's all up to you and good luck on your journey.

Rules:

1. Screenshots/Video needed for Launch, Kerbin Orbit, Kerbol Orbit (if not going to Mun/Minmus), Inside the SOI of your planet/moon and landing as well at Total Mission Time.

2. No autopilot/Debug console or other cheaty mods, I'm fine with MechJeb and others for data collection and certain other features but you can't use the autopilots.

3. If you are using mod parts, you will go on a separate leaderboard so everything is fair.

4. If you are using mods, please state which ones you are using so I can easily judge which leaderboard you need to go on.

Format is Days, Hours, Mins, Seconds.

Need Validation:

tjitte: I need all the required images or I can't add you.

Aescwulf: I need all the required screenshots except the landing one (good time).

Tell me if this has been done before and I will ask a moderator to close the thread, I've found before that the search function on this forums software isn't that good. Also, any suggestions would be much appreciated.

i made it to laythe in about 205 day's and a somewat edited feultank

I need proof or you are not going on the leaderboard. I can't possibly tell at the minute.

I leave a trail of dead bodies behind me, but I might attempt this time trial.

Looking forward to it and I know realize my spelling mistake, oops and thanks.

EDIT: I've corrected everything except the picture now and thanks again.

Yeah, one destination isn't much of a trail.

I'm pretty sure he was pointing out my spelling mistake but I can change it if the majority want it, I'm not going to force something everyone doesn't like.

How can I make it better then? I'm open to suggestions.

Also, I looked up the definition of trial and it seems fine to me but I might change it's name if any more confusion arises.

EDIT: I've changed the name, is it OK now?

Comment: Allowing a leaderboard for modded parts that does not allow .cfg edits is stupid. Mods are created by editing cfg files!

You should allow the guy who landed on Laythe with an edited fuel tank on the modded leaderboard.

Also, 576 days to eve

-snip-

I will change that, but he is still not going on there because he still needs to provide proof, thanks for pointing that out though, I'm quite tired at the moment.

Also, adding the score now.

Figured I would see how well I could do getting to Mun. For this trip, I used my highly reliable Coon Craft, a 168.7 ton general purpose ship. I suppose a better time could be had with a ship specifically designed for this mission.

I know sub 4 hours is possible, so I expect someone to beat me soon :P

Final time - 4:43:44

I included some screenshots that help show my thought process.. accelerating directly toward Mun to shorten the time until impact.

Because you didn't provide all the screenshots required (could you possibly do that?) I sadly can't accept you right now, otherwise you've got the best time. Tell you what, I will make a special section for people that haven't given all the required proof. Otherwise, I would love to put you on as you would be in 1st and that would be quite a good time to beat.

And, Well Done. :)

Minmus, 18 hrs, 59 minutes, 42 seconds. No mods, cheats, or even mid-flight saves/reloads. I lost the descent stage on landing, but Danlin is alive!

I knew that because I saw the thread you put up in General Discussion, again Well Done.

Well Done for that time, adding you to the leaderboard.

Stock Craft Kerbin to Duna: 15 Days, 6 Hours, 23 Mins, 0 Secs

Absolutely amazing time for getting to Duna, adding your score to the leaderboard.

Any more entries coming? You could always try and beat a previous record holder or set your own on a planet/moon that hasn't been attempted yet.

Good Luck.

It took me a few tries, but I didn't take new screenshots everytime I launched.
