  1. [quote name='GDJ']I shudder to think of the logistics of landing a 100 tonne aircraft on a dirt runway less than 1/3 of it's minimum required length.[/QUOTE] mmm, we do have thrust reverters. If I have got time later this day I will try it XD
  2. he didn't state, it had to be peer reviewed... anyway, I'm surprised no one has tried it with mk3 parts yet
  3. you can do that trick if you just throw the mods in seperately and let the squad folder be. The chance all the mods will work though is nihil. Kerbal Alarm Clock, for example, did still work for me
  4. great tip, I always just slap some on and hope it works
  5. Good job Claw! in the meanwhile am I still stuck at Eve, I do have to say it takes quite a long time if your rover drives 20 m/s and can't handle physics warp XD, Oh well, have to kill time till my long planned mission for 1.1 anyway.
  6. hmm, interesting idea. I don't see problems, however, I also don't see advantages. As they are in the body anyway you can't see them, so visuals doesn't seem like the target. They don't provide intake, do they?
  7. Well, I came back from a small walk at the North Pole of Eve, to find my rover floating in the air. Luckily a quicksave and quickload fixed the problem!
  8. And I failed my objective; finish another circumnavigation in October.. I think it has to do with the body I chose to circumnavigate, Eve is quite big and my rover quite slow. Thereby I'm quite busy with important stuff. anyway, I am around one fourth of the circumnavigation, more news will follow!
  9. Spaceplaneaddict, Hyperedit is as far as I know not allowed under any circumstance except for testing. May I ask you how many parts your rover has? If you can't design a launcher which can get you there in once you should do it in multiple launches. Launch the transfer vehicle first, then rendezvous and dock the rover on the transfer vehicle. You can even send the transfer vehicle up without fuel to save mass and thus parts. hope this helps
  10. haha, great screenshots, interesting that so many are on Eve
  11. So I was just driving around on Eve and found this: I knew they existed, however I had never seen one before. So I made the screenshot afer which I thought we needed a topic to show off these pictures. I do want to say it is totally NOT meant as critique (don't know about what, but a disclaimer is always safe ), I just think it can cause some pretty fun pictures. So post some floating rock pictures!
  12. Thanks haha now let's see if I can manage to do another circumnavigation in sticky Octobre XD btw, I have got one stupid plan for when 1.1 comes out, not 1.05, but 1.1
  13. I'll first make sure to grab fengist's attention XD Fengist The water circumnavigation of Kerbin is done. I thought I was further away from the end, and that I had more screenshots (apperently the more screenshots I have, the more time it takes for me to get into the mood of uploading to imgur). I'm not making a separate topic again, as not many people seem to read it in the section, this is more the target group. Anyway here it is: That's it, this should be master mariner.
  14. as I did some circumnavigations, I think I am allowed to share my opinion: I agree that the craft must have been airborne for quite some time, however I also vaguely understand why it was, maybe as it went so fast, but maybe as you can safely go faster while airborne. Hope this helps in your decision, Fengist. Furthermore, I am around 2/3 around Kerbin for my master mariner badge. I had some delay as I have been a bit ill, it will probablybe online before monday.
  15. Not neccesarily, just keep adding boosters until you get there. You can also consider assembling it in orbit (if not the tank, the ship which brings and lands it) Anyway, I am about 1/3 of my Kerbin circumnavigation
  16. Well, now this has been stickied I should circumnavigate a body to honor it ;P Probably doing a Kerbin water circumnavigation, using your mod. Perhaps even my yacht with minor tweaks. Have to think about a solution for that land bridge though... EDIT: Fengist, am I allowed to put a buggy on the yacht, and then when I have arrived at the land bridge use it to cross the land? I do leave the yacht at that point, this is why I ask the question EDIT EDIT: I reread the text and apperently I don't need to cross the part for master mariner, I'll do that instead XD
  17. Sounds cool, perhaps it should display a list of done missions, showing at least the craft and where it went to. after which the player can add screenshots and maby even descriptions
  18. The 40000 m/s delta V is probably a typ0 (ooooh, i'm sorry)
  19. I do not completely agree upon that... I started playing in 0.23 and it took me about 100 to learn every aspect of the game. The relearning only involved in the athmosphere, outside stayed the same. 'relearning' only took me 2 hours my advise to the OP is: keep trying, watching some youtube tutorials doesn't hurt either
  20. nah, Minmus is not the nicest place for trailers: first you are ejected bij a small bump, then you come down full force... The wheels may survive (maybe popped), but the links are likely to break at least that's my experience, and it is not one of my recent experiences.
  21. I've noticed that unfortunately elcano challenges aren't that popular in this section of the forum, correct me if i'm wrong though. Anyway great job even with your restart, I don't think I would have done a restart instead just give up XD
  22. Great ship smjjames, I hope you will make it this time! before I continue I will grab the attention of Fengist: Fengist that should do. What I wanted to share is that I have finished my circumnavigation on Laythe, here I have the link to my post: http://forum.kerbalspaceprogram.com/threads/133624-Laythe-Circumnavigation?p=2182008#post2182008 (don't know how to shorten it by using a word or picture yet though, hehe) to be sure i'll add a picture as well, it also makes this post more colorful
  23. Hello, This is another attempt at the Elcano Challenge this time circumnavigating Laythe. I have used the Maritime Pack for the entry and sort of commented on the pictures, don't know what you will think about the comments though. I have got two imgur albums which should be embedded, nontheless you can click to go to imgur for the full images, i don't really mind. Everything should be explained, if not, too bad the albums will provide enough information. Anyways enjoy, or click through it furiously at which point you should ask yourself: "why am I looking at it at all?" Setup: Actual trip: Edit: turns out to read the full comments you'll have to go to imgur, ahh whatever
