Y'know, after i got used to C7, i hardly ever use anything else :) May i present you the Mother of Invention:


Onwards!

Re: Kerbal Space Program or "Rocket science is harder than it looks"
im kinda thinking that the c7 pack is a little overpowered. i only say this after accidentally putting a shoddy delta wing craft into orbit.

Re: Kerbal Space Program or "Rocket science is harder than it looks"
Yeah. Those engines can hold incredible amount of weight on the launch pad. Similar rockets from other packs just collapsed. But think about it as being designed to glide in atmosphere, not putting into orbit. You need more powerful stuff there or you'll just crash. The bus wings are quickly becoming my fav for that

Well that pack isn't really overpowered when you're not using engines that can put your rocket into the hundred thousands of m/s before running out of fuel. :P

Today I made an Ornithopter.. >_> by pressing up and down rapidly the wings flap and keep it in the air.  :yes: :yes:
Currently playing: real life.

I made a plane that did that unintentionally.
Then I intentionally made it flap about until the wings shredded off and impacted with the fuselage of said plane. :D

if i took a picture of every stupid thing i did in a game the tubes would be too clogged that it would be impossible to watch porn on the internet!

Re: Kerbal Space Program or "Rocket science is harder than it looks"
For anyone still playing this and interested there are experimental Builds for the upcoming 1.1 release of KSP that you can download from the site. Currently new features are RCS thrusters, advanced SAS for maintaining pitch and heading via automated control surface operation, time compression, orbital mapping, new space skybox, splashdown effect with added water physics (Watch your Command Module bob about in the ocean after splashdown), redesigned launch pad, stall mechanics, and an atmospheric gauge where the MET ticker normally is (You'll find that on the top-left corner now).

That's all the new stuff I can think of that doesn't involve mod parts. Though they did something with the way textures worked so any mod parts you get that aren't for at least the first 1.1 experimental Build will have a red overlay on it, and I think the C7 Flight Pack is the only part pack that is updated with the new texture method.

Re: Kerbal Space Program or "Rocket science is harder than it looks"
also time compression, thank lucifer!

love the orbital map. i can finly determine when my trajectory is sufficient to kill thrusters, wait for apokerb and then fire a trim burn. also give space newbs a crash course in orbital mechanics, without giving them a page of numbers to deal with (im pointing at you orbiter).

Re: Kerbal Space Program or "Rocket science is harder than it looks"
well after well over 400 days in space and 77 billion meters away from home, bill and bob are no less still scared ****less than they were on the launch pad. doesnt phase old jeb one bit, though he just used up the last roll of toilet paper.


also in the time it took me to get a screen shot, compress it to a sane level and upload it to photo bucket, the mission has reached day 500 and an altitude of 100 billion m. time compression really makes these long duration missions almost bearable. you cant see it but the ship is shaking rather violently due to the loss of floating point precision.

Re: Kerbal Space Program or "Rocket science is harder than it looks"
Could also be because of the advanced SAS. At least inside the atmosphere I notice the aircraft I make with that part tends to shake about when it's active.

Re: Kerbal Space Program or "Rocket science is harder than it looks"
no, it gets progressively worse as your distance from kirbin goes up. same thing happens in space combat and even in freespace under my newtonian script. its a common problem with space sims. you add your timesliced velocity to your position every frame, and when you add a big number to a small number, you loose any precision data from the small number, or worse, get a qnan error. ksp still uses a fixed world frame of reference. games like orbiter use dynamic frames of reference that ensure that you dont break the math.

Re: Kerbal Space Program or "Rocket science is harder than it looks"
Seems the X3 Build did something to royally **** up atmospheric craft, my craft based on the SR-Mockingbird uses one fuel tank and goes into a never-ending fit of pitching up, with no way to fight the nose down. This did not occur on the X1 or X2 Builds ever.
I'd love to post about it for the exact details since their experimental Build thread is sort of undescriptive of all of their changed, but you know, I can't.

How in the blazes did you get banned from that board, anyway?

Re: Kerbal Space Program or "Rocket science is harder than it looks"
I'm not banned from it, that's the thing. I try to go into not just the forum, but the Wiki, the main Kerbal Space Program site itself, anything that says kerbalspaceprogram.com in the URL, it goes to the "Cannot display the webpage" page, regardless of browser, regardless of deleting everything in the browser history, regardless of the number of times the router is reset, there is not a single thing that lets me back in.

-Sara- said use a Proxy, that only does so much; doesn't let me post still. Log in? Yes. Post? No. Download files that don't have the actual URL typed out? No. Otherwise I just copy / paste the URL outside of the Proxy and boom, download. That's the only way I'm keeping up-to-date on the game, I can't address things that are potential issues though like my above post, which seems that the order fuel is consumed has been reversed, I'd like to clarify, as I haven't seen other posts relating to it.

Re: Kerbal Space Program or "Rocket science is harder than it looks"
given the frequent corruption of the downloads and several people who cant access the site at all, id say they have more than a few issues with their web hosting provider.
