Over the weekend I sent 2 landing probes to Plock and Karen and took some pictures mostly in the dark given how far they are but still.

First probe named Gonk landed on Plock.

The next probe named Manager successfully touched down on Karen but this time we added lights to the probe.

SSTO spaceplane to a moon with an oxygenated atmosphere and back. If only just…
ov5FwhG.png

That’s the target on the horizon. This planet and that moon are mutually tidally locked, so it’s always there and so easy to aim for.

On Kerbin, you can use Panther jets up to about 15,000m altitude; on this moon (Lua) it’s less than 1500m, which is great because the mountains can be up to 3km tall. The atmosphere only extends 10km above sea level too, so flying at all is a challenge second only to Duna.

Landing was, hmm, interesting with such a thin atmosphere, but this plane handles well at low speeds and the payload (an ore scouting rover) was deployed safely. Air-dropping it wouldn’t have worked as it would have left physics range before touching down and been eaten by the Kraken.

Back to a real atmosphere, though the direct return from Lua to Rhode was about the same speed as a normal Kerbin re-entry.

One last shot of Lua rising on the horizon before the final descent towards the KSC

I present to you, the RV-MnS10.. the name doesn't take the spotlight. Small rover designed for long & steep expeditions on Minmus, averaging 40 km/h speeds on flat surfaces.  

A 3D effect is created when quickly switching between the two similar pictures (not scrolling)

Front perspective (different visual configurations):

I can say that I have rolled this vessel over, I can't say how much.

What mods are you using?
Also, I tried the swap. So fun, so eye-breaking...

I assume that you are asking about the visual mods, as for part mods there isn't a ton other than SCANsat.

A list of all visual mods: AVP, EVE, TUFX with custom config, Sunflares of Maar, Distant Object Enhanced, PlanetShine, Parallax, and Scatterer. 

I hope I listed all of them.

I obviously recognize the rover core/body but it looks metallic and like aluminum foil... did you use TURD on it?

I've finally discovered that I could change FOV with the alt key. I never realized what a huge difference it made. Anyway, here's my latest (first!) mission in my latest playthrough:

water looks great, trying to get mine perfect. is you scatterer FourierGridSize setting at 256?  and is that the shadow im seeing of the command pod right beneath it, kin of on the water? or am i seeing the bottom of the command pod through the water?

Um I'm not sure actually, I'm just using the default JNSQ scatterer configs. Sorry that I can't be of much help here, I don't really understand this haha.

That would be the bottom of the command pod seen through the water.

It should come with the ReStock mod as a variant/skin, I think. I didn't use TURD so it couldn't be that.

This is a snapshot of a mission to the mothership, Jewel 2, currently interred in LKO awaiting its next mission, using one my largest spaceplanes. The spaceplane was to deliver modules for a space station that Jewel 2 will deliver and assemble over the Mun, which can be seen on the right.
