  1. The PD Launcher folder is taking ~1.2Gb of drive space, so I don't know what they've got in there. Probably updates that didn't delete previous versions. I'll drag it to another drive and see what happens. If nothing, I'll ditch it.
  2. So I wasn't imagining it... now I can remove the thing from the drive and add 10% to my free space. ps... what is the safe way to remove it without leaving a trail of loose ends? It didn't appear in the apps & features list.
  3. Established a comm net around Eve/Gilly. First landings on Gilly. That's different... First Kerballed fly by of another planet. First landing on Eve that went as intended.
  4. LKO rescue. Circularisation burn. Cut thrust. 72m from target, closing at 0.2m/s. Never, ever going to achieve that again.
  5. Now that is taking the wee-wee. Should say: 'KSP2 is in a parking orbit and, the last crew member is about to leave (Bob, please turn off the lights). It'll sit there. If we forget to boost it now and then, it'll de-orbit on it's own. Hopefully it'll miss major population centres, but meh... not our problem. No littering fines will be paid.'
  6. That moment, at the end of the last promo video, when the craft slammed into Mun.. the thought 'how very Kerbal' was followed by another... 'I hope that's not prescient.' Turns out it was. Still.... I've contentedly sunk ~400 hours into KSP since FS didn't exactly ignite enthusiasm in its sequel. So I'm relatively philosophical about the whole debacle.
  7. "We only tell you when you should be aware." "And when's that?" "You should now be aware because you just denied it." "It would have been rather more helpful if I'd been aware before I'd denied it." "On the contrary [Creative Director], if you had been aware you before you'd denied it, you wouldn't have denied it." "But I needed to know." "We do not always tell you about [studio shutdowns] when you need to know." Sir Humphrey and Jim Hacker... IG was running, right up until they were told they weren't.
  8. Ticked over 1,000 hours (not that it is all active... I'd be coasting to Minmus and go to the shops and come back four hours later...). My 2024 game BSOD'd and corrupted the save file, so my Duna, Dres & Eve missions were for nought. So I started again, twice. Once on 10% science return (Don't. Just don't...) and again on 30% (which seems to be working ok). My rocket files weren't corrupted, fortunately. Still loads to explore.
  9. Not so much 'today', however over the last little while I've: - killed two Kerbals. There is a flag to mark the spot. - been to Duna for the first time ever. Landed probes on Duna and Ike - have a probe on the way to Dres, which will be another first - found the Mun Arch. Obviously would have flown past it hundreds of times. This time I just happened to be looking the right way. - worked out how to use Soviet style capsules properly - become waaaay more efficient with my launch vehicles compared to the first few games I'm running science gathering on about 10% of standard, so I'm having to spread my wings beyond Kerbin and the moons to reach the 550 points level. All on stock KSP1 with Making History and Breaking Ground. I'm stuck trying to move a rover on Minmus. It has power after I fixed it up a bit. The wheels turn (in the same direction, which an improvement on when I got there). But it won't move...
  10. I am so relieved that it's not just me...
  11. There is a third option. It was a bug, then you suggested that maybe it's not. Then someone goes and asks IG's atmospheric tech consultant whether it's plausible. They confirm your thoughts. Then it gets massaged into a feature, complete with its own biome and science! And we all get a better representation of getting into space.
  12. I attach one end to a probe core, throw a baby engine on the other end, then put four Baguettes along the truss (one each side). Looks more interesting than yet another cylindrical fuel tank.
  13. I still have it on most (all?) of my trips. I've learned to fly around it. Not sure if it's because my PC is a potato.
  14. There is something of an irony here, given the generic nature of science as it sits. If this is a feature, rather than a bug, and there is a representation of the ionosphere, shouldn't this be a biome that we can go and do science in to find out what's going on? Then this information could result in Keri telling us that after a long night of coffee drinking, our physicists have worked out that to stop bits leaking off our ascent stages we need to XXX, and to stop our descent stages melting we need to YYY. There is a potential thread that unlocks a tutorial that people can use to guide them through it. And it gives us a reason to send probes to other bodies. I know some would find this dumb and/or frustrating, and would rather brute force their way through. Others might find it an interesting little corner to delve deeper into. If it's a bug; fine, fix it. If nothing else, the fairings are because they aren't effective. If it's a feature, we're currently left blind, which is silly.
