Okhin Posted December 16, 2019 Share Posted December 16, 2019 A lot is going on here with all the strikes and people fighting government, so I've been quite away from video games. But I have this contract about making a space camp, which requires me to get 12 tourists, 3 crew members (scientist, engineer and pilot, one of them being at least level 2) and bring them in LKO for 40 days. ANd brong them back after that. In one piece (each individual kerbal in a separate piece, but in not more than one piece each) And yes, I have snacks. I also have a 1.25 station up there, but it's damn too small, and expanding it to have the space camp is not worse the hassle of upgrading everything (did I mention I also recently unlocked the lamp'O'Tron ? Which make for a lot of upgrades of the few station I already have). And since I also have hydroponics (and getting a bit paranoid on the amount of snacks per kerbal per day), I'm working on a more permanent LKO base. I'm still wondering if I should use HitchHikers as reentry pods for the end of camp, or if I should stick a bunch of onion re-entry pods with ants engine and oscar fuel tank to deorbit all those kerbals in a big onion train. Which might be fun, but could also lead to dozen of applicants dying (and I only have one of those dozens). That's where I am in the design right now. I'm not sure a lab in LKO is wort the cost, but if I'm wrong, please, tell me, the bottom part isn't done yet. And I do not yet have the 2.5m wide heat shield for Hitchhikers reentry, but it's probably not required for such a low orbit. And no, I do not plan (yet) to launch all that in one massive launch, the drag will kill me (and most of the kerbals). Also, some guys got lost on the launchpad muttering things about non-sense concept such as profitability of space casinos and hostel. May be I should them that space should not need to be monetized and going there is, by itself, way funnier than playing with abstract concept such as kash in casinos. (or is it kasinos?)
