What did you do in KSP today?

Recommended Posts

Today I started easing back into KSP after a few weeks of break. No updates on the voyage of Kidonia yet, as it's still a few Kerbal weeks away from its next maneuver node, but I did do some roving around near my Minmus base in this adorable tiny rover:

I built a mini space shuttle with science instruments. It's easy to fly and can land back KSC runway. It has a first stage to get into orbit. All the pictures: http://imgur.com/a/Ay41c

I`ve been trying out RO RSS RP-0 KCT and discovering that it does not use nearly as much RAM as I thought it might, in fact it`s more stable than my normal modlist even though a lot of the same mods are in my RSS folder.

Really trying hard to get into orbit in my career, my launchpad will be upgraded in about 200 days so I`m trying to do it under 40T.

Yesterday and today I've been doing multiple boring refuelling missions between my mining operation on Minmus and several ships and stations at Mun and Kerbin. Fortunately I got to do it with this beauty. (Mostly stock with some TweakScaling.)

I Got caught up in hype trainness.. and with a heavy guilt, modified 4429s exhaust and abused her quite horribly exploding half the trains wheels trying to get a money shot for a hype train.. thankfully she survived and I repainted her class number back and fixed the configuration file.. repairing all wagon wheels.. thankfully nothing exploded

Finally reducing speed a little to let smoke catch up and fearing explosions.. the shot was perfect :)

I tried out a new SSTO design... went a bit haywire during reentry :P

But at least the mission was a success!

 

Currently developing a small, nimble SSTA. Looks good so far ;)

I deleted my hardmode game after a string of dumb design flaws. :(  I normally feel I'm pretty good at KSP, but I'm just having hard luck these days.  Forgot the solar panels, stranded some tourists.  Forgot the parachutes, killed Bob, Bill, and six tourists.  Added the parachutes and STILL killed eight tourists because there weren't ENOUGH parachutes.  I simply don't have enough time anymore to give every creation a safety test flight (or two...) and actually expect to get anywhere in the game I haven't been before.

I'm sad.

Built a nice little probe lander and sent it to Mun... :D

Sometimes it is quite fun trying to build things small-ish... :)

I made a Danny-esque mass relay and shot a kerbal out of the Kerbol System. (And triggered the hell kraken.)

Too close for gun, switching to empty vodka bottle!

I think it's pretty funny that "Aerial Ramming" is put under list of Russian inventions on Wikipedia. It says Soviets invented it in World War 1. :cool:

Project Bring'em Home continues apace.  In this episode, we actually bring two of 'em home!

I tried to make a Kopernicus Planet.

Keyword: Tried. I still can't figure out why the lighting is 90 degrees off from the planet. Much less anything else.

Built a spaceplane, and brought a satellite into a polar orbit.

Turns out it works but I guess I still need to figure out the correct ascend trajectory in order to save some fuel...

Today I developed a MiG-21 Analog.

Today, I learned that switching between splashed down vessels may cause some minor issues. Huh.

If I can read numbers correctly, its 1/30 the speed of light. Impressive, isn't it?

Yesterday, after flying to Minmus and back, I played around with procedural tanks as plane parts.

Mechjeb's spaceplane autoland feature may prove to be helpful eventually, but for the time being, it's just a way to ensure your crash response team doesn't have far to travel to get to the crash site. ;)
