Elcano Challenge: A waterlubber circumnavigates Minimus!


Recommended Posts

Looks like I'll be doing to Elcano challenge! Don't know why, really, but hey, I've got free time!


For this mission, we'll be using the Minmus Exploration Rover Mark I:

Warning: Hi-Res blueprints!









It's mostly stock, with some Tweakscale and other mods to save on part count. It's only got 61 parts, which allowed me to warp at a decent rate with less slowdown.
It features a roll cage and hefty torque, to keep it in line with the surface. There are 4 solar panels on top, the big ones from Asteroid Day. It features a blinkly light, because it's safer!

The plan is to land a little east of the flats, head east for a while, and arrive at the start again. I didn't plan out much of a route; other than aiming for flats and the plateaus.
The next post here will be launch and landing of the rover!

Welp, I "finished!"


Here's the imgur album! I spent an hour on the descriptions, so that's that. I had to reload a couple of times, but I tried to organize the screenshots to the best of my ability.

You can download the Persistent Trails track here.


Edit: Wow! This marks my 700th post! Neat-o!
