    This new ocean (Chapter 10: Homecoming)

    Isn't that an Isaac Asimov quote?
  3. My dad was a pack-a-day smoker from the age of 12 for his entire life. He tried to quit multiple times. After he had his work accident he sat in his hospital bed and watched the guy in the bed next to him die of emphysema. He still couldn't quit. My mom smoked for about two years back in the early 70s. I have no idea why she started. But then one day she decided she was done with it. so she stopped,. Just like that. It's a strange thing, and it affects different people differently. All I know is that my dad always pleaded with me to not smoke, and I'm very glad I listened to him.
  4. Thank you. However, that log file is hosted on a service which wants to install a flash program, which I will not do. There is no need for any download service to add a program to my browser. It had all the trappings of a malicious installer when I tested it. Could you please find another download outlet? Thanks Do you have the DLC installed?

    Could you stop a nuke with bubbles?

    Honestly, I dont know. A lot. All I can do is estimate where on the scale of bad-to-good it is in terms of a barrier material. I rate it roughly equal to air, and significantly worse than water, as a barrier material. Because a (Im assuming water-air) foam is mostly air with a few percent water. I dont think the form-factor of it being arranged in bubbles would have much of an impact (apart from making it harder to get a sufficient mass between you and the bomb). Its difficult because you cant just work out the mass of water necessary to absorb the heat or radiation produced. Because the heat/radiation doesnt disappear, its now a megaton of radioactive mist expanding very, very quickly towards you - which is almost as dangerous as a nuke in and of itself. And my assumption, is that if you used a mega-excess so that the steam explosion was itself blocked by an even greater mass of foam, that you would be further out from the burst at this point, than the minimum safe distance with just air in between you and the bomb.

    Star Wars IX: The Rise of Skywalker

    If that’s sufficient to cause dissonance in the average Star Wars fan, then it goes a long way towards explaining why I no longer care for, or have any wish to engage with them on matters of Star Wars. Many Bothans died to bring you this information.
  7. I've re-adopted this mod, updated it for the latest versions of KSP. @DennyTX is the original author of this. I had adopted it a few years ago, and he came back about 1 1/2 years ago. At the time I happily turned it back over to him. Since then it has languished and Denny has not responded to me at all. So I've decided to re-adopt this again, this time I will hold on to it. The mod has been renamed (see the title) to reflect that. Currently I've uploaded a version for KSP 1.4.5-1.6.1 to SpaceDock, this should become available in CKAN soon. This version will NOT work in 1.7.0, I'll be uploading a 1.7.0 version in the next day or so. The name on Spacedock cannot be changed due to the way that Spacedock works.

    Bad science in fiction Hall of Shame

    Lance Henrikson would've made a weird terminator cos hes got all those weird floppy tubes filled with gallons of milk, they needed a metal framed one to pull of the "indestructible emotionless terminator" feel.

    Could you stop a nuke with bubbles?

    Yes, but with that, how many bubbles would it take at what rate without regarding the pracital means to produce it. If you even stopped one small point how much would it hypothetically take?
  10. I know that in the cheat options there is a checkbox for making joints indestructible, and checking that box does seem to make a craft stronger, but it can still blow up if it experiences too much force. Is there a way to make crafts 100% indestructible?
  11. Contracts are how you make money in the game. Obviously if you make the game cost more, you're gonna have to grind contracts more. At the beginning of the game, you have a very low (zero) Rep. Until you build your rep over 300, you will only be getting survey or tourist contracts to grind. So if you are going to be prejudiced against survey contracts, then I'd suggest a starting rep of 200 minimum.

    I will say that the fact Jebediah is different is a little on the nose.....but then again: That is pretty funny, Happy Explosions

    [1.5.*] AFBW Revived (Joystick & controller mod)

    I have the same issue in 1.6.1. I read earlier in the thread: "Throttle issue on joystick: This happens sometimes with my Saitek X55. I recalibrate every time I start KSP with the joystick plugged in and if this happens I just recalibrate again and that fixes it. Make sure the throttle is closed, at full back, as well when you click the calibration button" Sorry, I can't recall who posted that as I had copied the text over to my phone so I could test last night. Not sure if above is related to the wheel throttle issue, but I tried and no luck. Not sure if this is possible at this time, but it was late and I was tired so I probably missed something obvious (which would be typical)

    Another StarWars question

    I happen to know that HP merch massively outsells SW merch these days. "Brand Fatigue" apparently, people are becoming bored of endless spinoffs, series, teasers etc.

    What Is Your Naming Theme For Your Spacecraft?

    You know, considering the naming scheme for the SpaceX drone ships, I'd say you're in good company. As for me, I also tend to vary my naming schemes according to the "Theme/Roleplay" for that save. For example my miscellaneous missions Sandbox save uses an alphanumeric system of two letters and a number, the letters designating the type but not according to any system (i.e. XR-2, an X-1/X-15 inspired rocketplane and the AL-1 air launch mothership). For my Career save, the system is a bit looser but craft are given a name, so far it has primarily been the program name with possible additions such as a number as with my Altinex program which encompassed my first flights and therefore each successive flight was basically a unique spacecraft. As for the names I use, they mostly are made up words, some based off English (i.e. Orbitan, an orbital missions craft and the name of one of my first functional spacecraft in KSP ever), others basically gibberish although I have ones I have been using and wanting to use for a fair while (i.e. Ekymia, Sharika, etc.).

    0/9 no rating given Enough of that, now it's time to watch Primer for the 1st time and understand all of it.
  19. I heard that. Addiction is real, powerful and physical. You cant "think" your way out. You can both want AND not want a cigarette. The only way out, unfortch, is suffering. But suffering leads to the dark side so I guess Im stuck.

    [1.6+] Kerbal Inventory System (KIS) v1.18

    I can't address whether the propellant goes down or not but your evidence doesn't prove it. The jetpack contains a ridiculous amount of fuel in stock. You can get to orbit on Minmus with your jetpack alone, no need to refuel. One refueling (and note that a canister is supposed to provide enough for two) will get you to orbit on the Mun. (Note that the Basic Orbit mod will make it much easier to do this, it lets you see your orbital parameters in the close-up view.) In versions past I have done orbit-Minmus-orbit with one fuel tank and orbit-Mun-orbit with two. Admittedly, I'm not good enough to accomplish the landings without a reload or two.

    [1.7] Kolyphemus System Continued

    I can't. It lags the game when I have ocean shaders on.

    POLL: When did you start playing KSP?

    For me, I got into KSP back in 2013 not that long before 0.21 was released so while I did get a few missions in with the old SAS, Support Buildings, Mun, etc. I never really got that used to them. That was almost 6 years ago I just realised … I feel old all of a sudden. AviosAdku
