  1. Hello Kerbonauts! The Loading Screen Contest has come to an end and we are just blown away by the amount of submissions we received, and more so by the artistry of our amazing community, so a huge shout-out to all participants. Thank you so much! Before we go any further, we want to invite you to this thread to check out the outstanding entries we received, it will be worth your while, we promise. With over 600 pieces, ranging from awesome 3D renders, amazing screenshots and inspiring fan-art, selecting the winners was no easy task, and although we would have loved to include all of them, we had to carefully select 9 winners based on originality, creativity and artistic ability, all while trying to include a diverse set of images that represented the Kerbal spirit. The winners are... (drum rolls...) @cafelate @dok_377 @Exaxis @KnutG @Orbital_phoenix @Pills @rocket_scissors @themaster402 @Tinem Congratulations to the winners and thank you so much for making this contest a success. Happy launchings!
  2. For millennia we have stared in awe towards the sky and wondered about the nature and the mysteries of the celestial objects we are able to see at night. Besides the sun, no other object has sparked more fascination in us than the Moon, inspiring countless myths and legends across cultures and nations. In 1966, the Luna 9 spacecraft became the first spacecraft to successfully land on it, and only 3 years later, aboard Apollo 11, humans stepped on lunar soil for the first time, a feat that would not be repeated after Apollo 17 in 1972. For many years, we shifted our attention towards other parts of the solar system, but in the past decade, interest in revisiting our only natural satellite has reignited. Attracted by its natural resources and as a possible hub for interplanetary travel, the Moon has become once more the focus of various space agencies and commercial companies in a reinvigorated modern space race. As one of nine contractor companies selected by NASA in November 2018 to submit bids for the Commercial Lunar Payload Services program, Intuitive Machines will launch its first out of three lunar landers, the IM-1 Nova-C lander, in summer 2022 aboard a Falcon 9 rocket. Nova-C will be the first U.S. vehicle to softly land on the lunar surface since 1972. The lander features the VR900 engine, which uses methane and liquid oxygen and produces 4,000N of thrust, as well as advanced autonomous landing and hazard detection technologies. Capable of carrying 130kg of cargo, the IM-1 Nova-C lander will land on the Moon within 1 degree of 25 N latitude, 50 W longitude, in Vallis Schroteri in Oceanus Procellarum, in a chosen 200-meter landing site, and will ferry numerous experiments to explore and test technologies to process natural resources of the Moon. As such, it will become the first commercial company to bring NASA and commercial payloads to the lunar surface. To celebrate this milestone, we have partnered with Intuitive Machines for an exciting KSP challenge, where you'll have the opportunity to win an invitation to join their team in their brand new and modern Mission Control Center in Houston, TX, for the real IM-1 Nova-C moon landing! So, what is this challenge about? Simple, build a Nova-C lander and recreate the IM-1 mission as close as you can! The closest you get to the real thing, the better. To successfully complete this challenge, you’ll need to: Build a Nova-C analogue and load it with scientific experiments. Launch it aboard a Falcon 9-like rocket. Decouple the lander and perform a direct throw TLI to get to the Mün. Perform a soft landing in the Canyons North of the Farside Crater as close to the actual landing site as possible. Perform some experiments. Post a video* showcasing your successful mission on this thread or on Twitter/Facebook/Instagram with the hashtags #NovaCChallenge and #Contest. (Remember to show the coordinates of the location where you have landed). *Videos should not contain any music that you do not personally own. (KSP in-game music is ok, just no adding in extra music unless it's something that you created and own the rights to. Licensed music, cover songs, "copyright free" music, etc. is not allowed.) Scoring details: Up to 30 Points for a realistic Nova-C recreation. (appearance, size, and mass all matter) 20 Points for decoupling and performing a direct throw TLI to get to the Mün. Up to 40 Points for landing safely at the right location. 2 Points for each experiment you bring with you and perform. (Maximum of 20 points) 20 Additional points if you perform a vertical takeoff, cruise, and landing to another location of the Mün after you have arrived at your first destination. 30 Additional points if you safely land the Falcon 9-like rocket on Kerbin. In the event of a tie, the winner will be determined by a panel of judges. Mods are NOT allowed. Cheats are NOT allowed. This challenge is intended to be completed in Stock KSP. This means players can not utilize DLC or any other add-ons to complete the challenge. Add-ons are classified as any original or derivative work intended to expand another work by adding or replacing files. (Including, but not limited to: informational mods, visual mods, autopilot mods, and utility mods) We are allowing the use of custom flags only. Note: Please make sure to maintain a copy of your saved game as you may be asked to submit it for further review. You have until March 23rd, 2022, to complete the challenge. The winner will be announced on March 31st, 2022. One grand prize winner will win a trip to Houston, TX to join the Intuitive Machines team in mission control for the real Nova-C moon landing. The winner will also get a tour of the Intuitive Machine spacecraft production facility while they’re there! Airfare and a 2-night, 3-day stay at Hilton Houston NASA Clear Lake for the winner are included. Good luck! OPEN ONLY TO LEGAL RESIDENTS OF THE FIFTY UNITED STATES AND THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA. MUST BE AT LEAST 18 YEARS OF AGE. CONTEST BEGINS AT 9:00 AM PT ON MARCH 1, 2022, AND ENDS AT 11:59 PM PT ON MARCH 23, 2022.

  3. Hi there, I'd like to suggest a small and easy contest, which is all about launch efficiency, trajectories, gravity turn, etc. You'll find below a Full Stock Craft : https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/706948521735225374/753224100033462372/KSC_-_SLG4_-_MunAr.craft A quick VAB pic of this very basic rocket : What you can do : - tweak every contextual parts menu : engine's gimbal, booster's power, fuel capacity, fairing jettison option, Autostruts, Rigid connection, fuel consumption priority... Etc. - modify the staging : fairing separation sooner, synchronize a decouple with the upper engine, etc. - fly the way you want, provided that you're not using dirty alpacas, bug using, AltF12, etc. - you can use any AutoPilot mod or script you want : be sure to avoid adding Parts, I know there is Partless version of MechJeb for instance. Otherwise that would add some mass / drag. - mods are generally okay, they do not alter physic in any way and you're not adding any parts, etc, see previous rules :p What you cannot do : - obviously, you can't add or remove any parts. And you can't do anything to the Payload. - do not unlock the upper tank of the last stage, it's here for a reason : you should be able to put that craft into orbit without touching the locked tank, with margin. If you don't, you're in the good place to ask for tips, do not hesitate - do not use any mods / thing that is altering the Stock Physic. Provide some screenshots you want, but one them must be the Orbit View, after reaching 100x100km circular orbit, minimum, just like the next image : If you're using some AutoPilot mod, please provide a Screenshot of the settings panel as well, as it's one of the thing that i'm personally interested in : i've never find any one beating me at this challenge using autopilot :p Your goal : preserve as much DeltaV you can ! We will only look at the Stock indicator, at the lower left corner ! You should provide : a screenshots of the orbital view showing the 100x100 circular orbit minimum and the Lower Left corner DeltaV Stock indicator, and any other screenshots or information regarding what you've tweaked / change, according to the rules, as well as AutoPilot Settings Panel, if you're using one. Try to use a recent version of KSP, at least from 1.7.1 since this is the one that brought the Stock DeltaV indicator. Any feedback appreciated if there is questions, suggestions, etc !
  4. Hello everyone! Are you playing the 1.2 pre-release? Do you want to help us crush those puny bugs and get the chance to name an in-game Kerbal or Waypoint while doing so? Of course you do, who wouldn't?! During the past Squadcast we announced the Bug Hunting Contest and it consists of the following: Participants just need to make quality bug reports on the pre-release project on KSP’s Bug Tracker. The QA team will nominate some 'bug report finalists' based on the relevance of the bug and quality of the report. Once a week, we will announce at least one winner at the beginning of SquadCast (Thursdays - 22:00 UTC at KSPTV). The winner will be able to add a name to a kerbal or waypoint random name generator, subject to our approval Every bug report made during the pre-release phase of the 1.2 Update will be taken into consideration for the contest (sept 13th. - TBA) We will also have a special reward* for the Ultimate Bug Hunter, who will be announced at the end of the contest. Let the hunt begin! Start finding those bugs and putting your best reports on the tracker! Good luck! - The KSP Dev Team *Shippings are limited to Shapeways’ Serviceable Countries list.

  10. Hello everyone! Do you remember the Bug Hunting Contest we made for the pre-release of Kerbal Space Program: Loud and Clear? In case you forgot, it consisted of participants making quality bug reports on the pre-release project on the KSP’s Bug Tracker. The QA team would then nominate some 'bug report finalists' based on the relevance of the bug and quality of the report, and the winners were able to add a name to a kerbal or waypoint random name generator. Finally, during the 1.2 launch party that we celebrated on KSPTV with DasValdez, the Ultimate Bug Hunter was announced and received a special reward. Once more, we want to give a huge shout out to everyone who participated and congratulate the bug hunters who could name a Kerbal or a Waypoint in the name generator. These are those hunters and the names they chose: @Carcara - "Cristiano Kerman" (Kerbal) @Spanksh - "Entrance to the Upside Down" (Waypoint). @DV-13 - "Vasya Kerman" (Kerbal) @LameLefty - "Lefty Kerman" (Kerbal) @Newnard - "Lashel Kerman" (Kerbal) @Draradech - “Schiaparelli's” (Waypoint) At last but not the least, @Anth12 won the Ultimate Bug Hunter titel for reporting a great amount of different bugs! He send us this picture with his reward: Congratulations and thanks to all the bug hunters! - The KSP Dev Team
