"Nice" Ksp Photos

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, I saw the "Show off your awesome KSP pictures" Thread, and it made me wonder.

I think we should have a thread for "Nice" photos, not just random screenshots, but photos that look good, have meaning, or just look good.

Here is my first example:

Here are a few images I took today in KSP.

Relay-1A - part of my geo-sync communications mesh. this was the first of the three Relay-"A" series launched and inserted. These were launched as support birds before I started my GPS constellation around Kerbin.

On a sad note one of my Kerbals was killed on Laythe due to a landing strut failure. After Bartbe Kermin repaired the broke strut the whole ship shifted and the strut failed again causing the ship to crush him.

Other than the one lost Kerbal the mission was not in vain nor lost. the remaining crew collected a ton of science before planting a flag and heading back home.

The latest mission that was completed this morning "The Jool Express" orbited Jool and landed on Vall and also on Bop. The craft used Duna for a course and gravity assist and then again used Laythe as a last minute "shoot from the hip" course correction and speed reduction...

This mission arrived at Jool just as "The Laythe Express" was leaving Laythe. In fact "The Laythe Express was still in high Jool orbit on her way home to Kerbin.

Final countdown T minus 20 seconds. All systems green!

All five kerbals return home with a bounty of science and samples. I had to put a drogue chute on this big girl to slow her down before deploying the 3 main chutes. other wise they would have been torn off.

Here are a couple of stations I put up this evening..

Why use the usual boring names? Not us at Elfnet Communications we like to think outside of the proverbial box!

wonder if I could do this for others' work, as a compliment to the already-existing Debris Series?

Actually, that is a really good idea! Make a new thread, and I think people will love it!

BTW, +Rep...
