What did you do in KSP today?

Recommended Posts

I just got back onto KSP after like a year hiatus so I decided to go to the Mun immediately using a impractical design as warmup :P*

Spoiler

ran way too low on fuel so I aborted the mission

Reentry wasn't very smooth...

But hey we splashed down safely!

Im thinking maybe I should replace the lander with more fuel and using the shuttle to land on the Mun plane style idk maybe next week

*mostly because I've already remade Apollo like 7 times over so many versions

Brought a load of passengers and fuel up in my Cargo SSTO. This is the second fuel resupply run I have utilized this design for.

Bill, Bob, Valentina, and Dizon Kerman all await the first load of 4 passengers out of the 8 selected highest paying customers arriving alongside vital supplies for future moon trips.

Dang. I'll have to check that out.

It might be something from Kerbal Konstructs mod, but it's not on their map.

It looks nice though. :cool:

Had a mixed few days in KSP:

A new Eve remote rover arrived for a contract & to gather some additional science, possibly even locate a nice landing sight for a future crewed mission.

Eve entry went smoothly:

Landing went well right up until I jettisoned the parachute mount after landing.  The force of the decoupler was apparently enough to break all 4 wheels of my new stationary lander:

Then I took a load of tourists & trainees to Minmus in a new large lander.  Sci-Fi Visual Enhancemnts newest update is quite striking on Minmus

Coming back home

For an ocean landing - unfortunately, it was too floaty & flopped over in the water, breaking off 2 of 4 grid fins.

I also conducted another mission with my Duna Flyer II, this time exploring the western canyon.  An untimely eclipse by Ike limited flight time for this mission

But plenty of science was recovered anyway

Finally, my DSV-01 Alderaan arrived in Laythe orbit.  Mission elapsed time was only 1 year & 34 days from launch.  PCC-02 Babylon, my first crew heading to Jool was still 239 days out from entering Jool's SoI, and they launched a year & 60 days before the Alderaan.  Jeb is excited to have a faster ride home once he finally gets to Laythe.

I was doing a normal F-104 when I found out this astronaut trainer existed so that was convenient!

It might be part of KerbalKonstructs mod, but I'm not sure.

I'm in 1.6.1, so it could be something new in the game, but I doubt that.

But please check it out, let me know if there is something there.

I working on something slightly big. And this thing carry some slightly big bombs. Then I decided that it was not enough, and it should carry also some AGMs. So I built some AGMs.

The AGM itself works - but it have a small problem on friendly fire… :sticktongue:

Install a Surface Scanning Module and you'll be fine, just head to the desert . . . &)

I'm sorry.

I guess it's a Kerbalkonstruct mod thing.

I think they have put easter eggs in their mod.

Nice jet btw :cool:

OK, so after Yesterday's crash Mission Control had a long think about how to salvage the situation, and came up with a Plan.

 

Firstly, we're going to launch another iteration of the (tried and trusted) Heavy Mun lander. This craft has worked before, and we're sufficiently confident in it working again, especially because we now have eyes on the landing site.

 

We're going to drop in with a couple of empty seats and an Engineer on board; we've even found an Engineer who will get enough XP to level up from the adventure. And we've managed to find space on it to fit all the parts required to get the Rover back into working order.

 

The mission profile is: Drop the Heavy Lander onto the Rover crash site. Repair the Rover to working order, and send one of the pilots (probably Heldred) in the Rover to pick up our rescue mission target, Beawell. Drive back to the lander, and then Urny (the pilot of the Heavy Lander), Beawell and Heldred will lift off, leaving Kelvis and Maduki to recommence the Science gathering mission they came here for. Or at least, that Maduki came here for, but Kelvis is fine with an extended stay on The Mun.

 

I've also figured out that I can probably re-use the final stage of the launch vehicle to build a third OUV from spares in orbit, with maybe a few minor things extra to be shipped up later. We'll see how that goes at a later stage; in the meanwhile the upper stage can be safely left to drift in an orbit just a bit above The 90th Kilometre Market.

Going to clear some more backlog...

It can be hard to get a good shot of LES jettison, since they have such a high TWR. As is my custom, it separates shortly after second-stage ignition.

This happened to Cheryl Taylor. Twice. Fortunately, the second time, she was close enough to orbit to finish circularizing on the service module.

For my second GEO constellation, I decided to send all four on the same rocket and do the whole "transfer bus at 3/4 day period" trick.

This rocket was known in development as "Titan 1", and later renamed to "Titan Fun".

It wasn't today, but the last time i played  Lucky Patcher 9Apps VidMate I landed a second lander on the Mun, within 100m of my first landing site and managed to take a rover out to the Armstrong monument

Just now, I built this out of a few left-over parts:

But I didn't want to leave it there on the KSC R9 threshold...


 

Spoiler

 

So I taxied a Peg 3 over it.  The thrust reversers really came in handy to get lined up properly.  Then it got towed.  (Gonna be a pretty big fee for this!)

Found a spot to park it:

If you build a gas station, the customers will come:

Leaning on the beach to enjoy the view. That Kerbal earned his break time, why would you bother him like that.

Yesterday I redesigned and launched my mun station:

But then I raged because I couldn't dock the Hitchhiker can to the space station so I decided to deorbit it:

I built an F-15 ripoff

That's it.

It's pretty good, spent 4 hours on it
