Here are some screenshots from the EARLIEST version of KSP!

Recommended Posts

I joined during 0.16, and a couple days later, after thinking I've learned everything to KSP, 0.17 was released and there were planets everywhere.... There went my confidence. :sticktongue: On a related note, it's amazing to see how far KSP has come in these few short years.

Is this version still available anywhere? And wasn't the 1st version 2d?

This version is not available to the public, and never was. The first public release version was 0.7.3 I believe.

I think you and I found the game at virtually the same time, and the new planets were quite a shock to me as well. I still haven't been past Duna yet.

If anyone wants to read about the beginning from 0.1-0.4 then you can read it here. (You have to go backwards counting down rather than up.)

The old launch tower! Remember what an utter pain that was by 0.18?

Oh God, yes! One time in fact, it made me so mad, because I launched a ship into orbit, and didn't realize until afterwards that it clipped one of my little tanks off.... :mad:

Strangely, the roads also shows up in this picture:

Also, i kinda like the granite that was around the launchpad. And the palm trees, too.

Bring it back, SQUAD!

DP - Pictures from page 2 are now in page 1.

Anyway, what sparked this thread:

I was on the KSP reddit, and i saw a post with one of the pictures in the first post ( i think it's near the end), so i was curious, and i scrounged around if i can find earlier pictures.

Yeah, that's still very recognizable. Do you (or anyone else) know what those three screens in the top right were supposed to display?

The IVA display was what was going to go there, but as far as I know the UI was changed entirely before they got a chance to put their kerbonauts in those portrait windows.

Reflections on water!? I don't think we have those now, do we?

No we do not have those now thankfully. Those things can be FPS killers along with waving grass. Ghosting an image has to render the ghosted image along with what is behind it, the way it is now is a bit easier I feel.

Is it me or do those old time instruments on the right of the screen look a bunch better and more suited to KSP than anything since?

This thread has convinced me that any future rocket engines that are added to the game (after the RAPIER) will need to have flamboyantly blue nozzles.

Always nice to see a blast from the past like this. Makes you think of how far the game has come in all this time.

Keep 'em coming guys... this is an excellent KSP history thread. I love it!

Glad you're interested, here's another one.

The altimeter was moved to the front and they added all the other stuff back again when IVA first came out.

I had no knowledge of KSP's existence back then so that's just my guess.

As several people already answered in this thread: they were meant to display the Kerbal portraits. But thanks for thinking along; I appreciate that.
