The dumbest thing you have ever built?

Recommended Posts

Whats the most impractical, useless, mopst hilarious thing you have built in KSP. Today i built a bi plane with SRBs and my GF looked at me like I was psychotic because i was giggling like a school girl launching it.

I built a huge, decoupler powered swing and put it on minimus. It actually worked - I could attach a small pod, shoot it into low orbit ad circularise. It exploded after 3 uses.

I once got into solar orbit JUST ON SRBS

Of course, this was in my bottle rocketeer days.

If that was your intention, then it was not useless :P

Me:

The dumbest thing I've ever build is also the biggest thing I've ever built:

3000 tons, 545 parts, falls apart 90% of the time, takes 40-50 seconds to load both in the VAB and into the physics engine and took nearly 3 hours of perfecting to get absolutely nowhere.

Intended for Jool, now it's a giant firework.

I would have giggled like a schoolgirl too. That looks like great fun. What mods are needed to do that?

mostly just firespitter.... i have a couple kethane tanks on there too... but they are nothing but decoration.... not ENTIRELY sure why i put them on there. They do look cool.

My girlfriend looks at me funny sometimes, too, when I get all excited playing this game

Like when I start jittering in my seat and sometimes move my chair out of the way entirely to sort of kneel-squat when getting real close on tough rendezvous :sticktongue:

Mine's probably this.

I created a challenge 2-3 years ago called "Space Race" in which the idea was to send some stuff to an offworld location, set it up to look like some kind of race, then grab  screenshots of it.

I posted my own entry, that involved sending this..

to the Mun...

Then offloading rovers...

as well as markers for the (very) simple "circuit"...

before posing the rovers for racing type shots of the "race".

Strangely I was the only entrant :)

I built a rocket almost completely out of launch escape systems.

You also built a time machine and took us back to 2014 :) Nothing wrong with it in this least but I wonder what you were doing so deep in the archives...

Anyway besides the pic in my signature, the dumbest thing I think I ever made was my first Jool 5 ship.

*shudders*

Either this weird little plane:

Or this mobile science lab:

The flying runway was a personal favourite.  Though it wasn't impractical, it did have a purpose!

Cheap way to get tourists to orbit in early career - except it only works sometimes.  Other times, their heads get too hot.....

WIP, but should get the idea done.

I'm building a mech using BG parts to replicate a (rather) famous TikTok dance to the chorus of ILIR7 - Salah Apa Aku (DJ Slow Remix). (@GRS, @Mukita12, @Lapis & all the Indonesians on this forum knew about the song)

Was quite complicated, got no footages of it yet (but I'll try when it's done). Building it is still easy, but programming the action is the hardest part. So I left it in a hiatus since I got more 'easy' projects to do such as making more planes, making a good rally car for DAKAR 2020, setting up space stations & planetary bases, etc. etc.

But after seeing this thread, guess I'll finish it.

8 steps-

probe core on top.

clydesdale srb underneath

6 clydes radially around it.

12 clydsdale’s radially around that.

continue until vab is full.

launch

hold down A to bombard nuke disintegrate smash  completely and utterly destroy the ksc.

wait for various krakens to attack.

Mk2 cabin, bicoupler, 2 RS-25s, and a side mounted pair of winglets. Add infinite fuel and crazy flight!:D
