  1. So the orbital decay isn't fixed, neither are the wobbly rockets, and the reentry heating effects that were just around the corner are... still around the corner. I hate to be pessimistic, but with this glacial pace of development, it's hard not to be. [snip]
  2. If anything, let it be a reminder to always test every part of a mission, no matter how simple. Many Eve/Tylo missions have been ruined because people forget to test their ladder setup and they can't get their kerbal back in the cockpit after going down to the surface.
  3. I think I also forgot how many people were developing KSP at that point, or how much it was selling for. Please remind us.
  4. So... the new engine thing will make it run more smoothly, right? Maaaaaaybe, just maybe, I can get my laptop to run it. I'll give it a try this weekend. Hey there, Vanamonde. Long time no see.
  5. I think I was here since 2012, my account got deleted on the great wipe or whatever you guys call it now. I could recognize most people here and found forum friends all over the place. On imgur, reddit, and even Youtube. Speaking of which, I can't seem to find any of the users I had as friends here before they switched to this new site. Do we still have a "friends" list? I kinda miss it, man. Getting in trouble with the mods for using a bad word here and there, checking out Whackjob's crazy stuff, all the tips we shared on this thread: The music-sharing thread, the "What did you do today?" one, which I think is still going strong... It feels weird, like we had a tightly-knit community, I had never seen something like that in a gaming forum. But, you know... life happened. Finished High School, got a job, went into mechanical engineering (because of KSP, speaking of the devil), laptop became crappy and I kinda went out the back door. Haven't been to this forum for a while, and even more if we're talking about doing it constantly. I just... meh. I'm still subscribed to Scott Manley, Cupcake, Danny, Elysium, Giggleplex, HOC, iDan (I think he got banned...), katateochi (remember his awesome Curiosity replica, and the Constellation one too!), a bunch of other ones, and yes, even Macey Dean; How could we forget about Macey? Aaaaaanyway, I'm kinda getting nostalgic over a game. Got something in my eye. If any of the old folks here recognize me, you get a free internet cookie.
  6. ( á° Üʖ á°) *sigh* Why doesn't this surprise me?
  7. It definitely looks... cleaner. But it just doesn't give off those DeltaGlider vibes anymore. :c Maybe it's the side windows.
  8. Got to Laythe, hatch was blocked.
  9. Nice U2, Ethan! I don't know how planes behave in the newer versions of the game, but you could try giving the wings a slight upward tilt. That tends to make my planes much more stable in general. Just my two cents.
  10. I've only been there once, with a rover probe. Rode down the hill I landed on and a wheel just fell off. It had six, but I got tired of constantly counter-steering while riding on a vast sea of nothingness. Just... read my sig.
  11. Yeah, that's supposed to be a CSM... Long story short, the LEM's engine broke down in Mun orbit, but I was bored of stuff failing so I decided to leave it in orbit, land and re-orbit the CSM instead, and refuel once I was back in orbit. The Kerbal tower is just the icing on the cake. YOU CAN'T TELL ME WHAT TO DO!
  12. This thread is starting to smell like Kommunism all of a sudden.
  13. One time, back in like... 0.18 or something, I set off to complete this same challenge, but took an approach that was much more extreme. I put a poor dude in a machine that looked more like a missile than a plane, and catapulted him out of the atmosphere using a single aerospike on a near-orbital path with a high apoapsis. A couple of minutes later he reached the Apo, where I did a prograde burn that put his trajectory right on track towards KSC. Reentry was particularly rough, but after that it was just some smooth cruisin' until the strip. Doing stuff like that is fun from time to time, but nothing beats cruising around the planet in a slow beater plane. :3
  14. Well, I just got given rep by two accounts on a post I made two years ago. The long con, people! > Guess I'm back on the forums.
  15. Éste es el video del Rubius, en caso de que no lo hayan visto:
  16. How about we call them "Pirate-Ninjas"?
  17. Arrived at Duna, no power generation.
  18. Can confirm. The view of Duna bobbing in the distance as I warped toward the return window was the best part. Beautiful place, can't wait to visit it once SQUAD fixes the soupy atmosphere. In fact, I haven't played since 0.90. Damn school, always getting in the way of the important stuff.
  19. Ew. Here's the video, for anyone wondering: Pewd's style doesn't really seem funny to me. Guess it's because I've grown up since the last time I watched his stuff (Still in my teens, shouldn't be saying that), but it just looks too... childish. Anyway, the description says that "Kerbal Space Program", not "SQUAD", sponsored the video... So SQUAD obviously saw the potential for new buyers with the 1.0 release and decided that it would make sense. However, I don't expect a lot of these kids to stay around the forum very much. If they do, at least they'll learn something useful.
  20. Freaking school always messing my rocket livestreams up. You guys better post nice screenshots while I'm gone, hopefully everything will go as planned. I'll be dropping rep like a madman once I get home.
  21. Quite a lot of progress, guys. Glad to hear you guys are working on a new demo, the current one is quite... dated.
  22. Just give the guy a damn ibuprofen, jesus.
  23. Here's an internet classic for y'all: You might want to watch this with headphones. It's quite... suggestive.
  24. I usually make a list of mods I want when updating the game version, so it's just 1) Google the mod 2) Download directly to GameData 3) Maximum euphoria archieved, eat doritos and Mt. Dew all day.
