A newcomer on Kerbin

Hello-- Kerbal Space Program is my latest addiction! :D

I've dabbled in various other things, going back to Microsoft's Space Simulator, various editions of Flight Simulator (of course), Orbiter (Hail the Probe!), and Buzz Aldrin's Space Program Manager, all of which have their positives; but KSP definitely has a "fun" quotient to it that I'm very much enjoying.

Downloaded the demo last week and within a few hours made my purchase of 1.04. I'm trying to stay as "vanilla" as possible until I get more familiar with things, though I did d/l Asteroid Day, MechJeb, and ScanSat. (Having a bit of a challenge with Asteroid Day and ScanSat, but I'll look in the appropriate forum areas...)

I decided to start in Science mode, reasoning that the 'graduated' introduction to the parts would make things a little less boggling. So far, I've done a lot of exploring around KSC on foot and by rover, put Kerbals in orbit, and have put un-Kerballed probes into Mun and Minmus orbits, as well as experienced some really spectacular failures! It's all good. There's something whimsically goofy about the Kerbals which seems to lower the risk-anxiety bar...

Indeed. This game doesn't even have to be a space game. You could add helicopters. Anything really! Mods are what bring KSP to life when you get bored of normal!
