Lasciate ogni speranza, voi ch'entrate.
Note: the general consensus at /kspg/ is that you should torrent the game, rather than purchasing it. The developer, Squad, is incompetent, extremely mismanaged, and is very resistant to all feedback or criticism. Furthermore, the game itself is poorly made, lacks a proper development team, and is in need of a serious physics and optimization overhaul, something that Squad is likely never to give it. In fact, we at /kspg/ believe that they are planning on abandoning development of the game altogether at some point within the next year. They do not deserve your shekels.
Understand that we here at /kspg/ don't hate KSP. We've simply grown bitter over the direction (or lack thereof,) that Squad has taken it in.

Why didn't they buy this guys parts rather than using hugo's garbage mk1?
The air intake 1m part is pretty sexy in this. Same with the 1-0.5 adapter.
holy shit that thing is disgusting...
behold, my first SSTO piece of shit.
I hate that they made the reaction wheel small. The 1.25 SAS unit looks like total shit, I never ever used it and now I need it. Total shit. Also, why is the shit with the CoL not fixed yet? I can't build planes that way!
Fuck off, its legit, no clipping
can you not see the rcs thrusters? Nor read the monoprop gauge?
yeah, using the spike cones...
all in all, it was just a proof of concept. Cargo bay was empty, but it still made orbit, with a bit of struggle... like i said, its a piece of shit, spaceplanes were never my thing.
When it says between X and Y does that mean I need to perform the action that the mission requires when I reach those specific objectives or do I just need to reach them and then I can do the action required?
Posting screenshots from my old career, kilt ded by .24. Haven't played career since, but I kind of miss it.
Fairly autistic and cheaty, but not as cheaty as playing vanilla only, faggots.
I miss that blanket interplanetary/moon + Duna lander system.
Here's Duna, from lander IVA.
Reversing toward my old orbital research station.
KSOS probably won't see use again, I finally got okay with building SSTO spaceplanes.
That was taken as I was coming in and preparing to aerobrake. Lander was designed to visit multiple points on the surface (for fun), then return, dock, and get dumped to be collected later.
IVA from old Remotetech interplanetary "relay" ship, because why use a probe when you can send kerbals to long-term spaceprison sentences?
>just update KSP after not playing forever
>Most of the mods I liked are still on 0.24
Am I seriously going to have to pirate a game I already own to be able to use my mods? B9, Kerbal Engineer, and TAC Life Support are still on .24.
there should be, but its not used by other mods. well kerbal kolonization system uses tac, without its pretty much useless for me.
how can you guys even play the 32bit version, with all the trimming and scaling at gamedata it crashes at the loading screen every time on me.
Is this mod any good? I want to use it for reusable rockets, but I'm afraid it will fuck up my saves.
Not certain, but I'll check it out
when I have time to play next week
Last space station I built was wholly done with single-stage reusable launch vehicles. This would've really fucking helped. Doing everything manually was tedious as shit.
Not to mention difficult, had to be able to load to the new ship (without a fucking crash) without launcher and payload smashing into each other. With enough mods, loadtime can cause some fucking issues.
perform the action while at those specs
yes it's retarded, be careful what you accept because many aren't worth the time/effort(and in one case can even be impossible, also sometimes you can reject the contract and a much better one with the same part will pop up immediately
tonight, I show the world my D.
/kspg/, I just woke up from the weirdest dream (or was it a nightmare?), I dreamt of a KSC many times greater than the one we know today, more of a KAX, on the outskirts of Kerbin City. It was like a one great DMP server, and all the billies’ planes flew all about.
Every once in awhile, a massive rocket would take off from one of a dozen full-sized pads. Little buggies and other vehicles dot the landscape. An ssto comes ripping across the sky, back from a milk run to a station—no—an orbital anchorage. The ssto's rear cabin was full of little billy kerbals, yet to make it to orbit, who want to see what it’s like. They each paid 1000 roots for the journey.
In the far outer territories, battles occur for territory, but here, all is relatively quiet. That is, until one particularly foolish child makes supermassive column of fuel and fucks up his staging. The city is bathed in the light of a mushroom cloud. An explosion rips across the vicinity and can be heard in Kerbin City, albeit faintly. All activity dies down for a moment, but only for a moment as it resumes where it left off.
>The study made the bottom line conclusion that the Mars One project is overly optimistic at best and unworkable at worst. The concept is “unsustainable” given the current state of technology and the aggressive schedule that the Mars One project has presented.
>“Mars One’s claim that ‘no new major developments or inventions are needed’ does not withstand scrutiny and that assessment is only for the habitation, life support, in-situ resource utilization and space transportation technologies. The MIT team notes that they did not address other required systems such as entry, descent and landing (EDL), the power system architecture, or the surface-to-orbit communications strategy.
>“If crops grown on Mars are the only food source, they will ‘produce unsafe oxygen levels in the habitat’ resulting in the first crew fatality after about 68 days due to ‘suffocation from too low an oxygen partial pressure within the environment,’ the consequence of a complex series of events stemming from overproduction of oxygen by the plants.
“The MIT team postulated solutions to that problem that are not part of the Mars One plan (e.g. relying on stored food brought from Earth, creating a separate plant growing facility, or using yet-to-be invented oxygen removal technology). If a way were found to sustain a Mars One habitat for 130 months, the paper concludes that spare parts would require 62 percent of the mass brought from Earth over that period of time.”
Even MIT thinks resources and base building are bad concepts.
Thanks, I haven't played the game for a year that's why I was asking.
i don't want to read the article is it saying there won't be enough oxygen or is it saying the ratio of oxygen to other gases would be too high?
close, but no cigar
fucking never. Squad's gonna cancel it post 26
Just kill me now. Science is just a new religion for atheists these days. All the verisimilitude is gone, replaced with funding-starved grad students making grant proposals for warp drives and replicators and a stupid public who was led too far down the "open mindedness" path.
I blame carl sagan. Stupid pot smoking hippie should have left his acid trips at home.
All science popularization does is muddy the issues. People believe in futuretech for the same reasons as bigfoot. Not because of evidence or reason, but because "nuh uh you can't PROVE that bigfoot DOESN'T exist so there!"
seems like one of them good problems, just bleed it off into tanks for later use. but you do need nitrogen. did they manage to get that out of the atmosphere yet?
also Tesla link anywhere?!? terrible PR
Tesla is a dogshit company that makes toys for rich people to flaunt as status symbols. Why include that charade?
I know serpentinization occurs sometimes on mars, but making an ISRU facility for that would be retarded huge and complicated.
Colonizing planets just isn't an option for our problems. We just like it because who doesn't like running away from their problems?

Don't worry about global warming. You'll be dead before the effects hit and it will sort itself out when the oil runs out and everything goes to shit because we sank all our funds in pretty and easy seeming solutions.
I blame the 90's for that concept. So overused.
Evolution doesn't work that way. When a species invents medicine, it seals its progress away forever.
We can't adapt when we have no forces pushing us to. Technology makes us stupid, not smart. We make machines to do the thinking for us so we can make choices without thinking about them.
Doesn't that seem wise?
Sounds like an episode of Star Trek.
Shit, it is.
>Evolution doesn't work that way. When a species invents medicine, it seals its progress away forever.
Source? First off, Natural Selection may have diminished in humans, but sexual selection still exists and is a VERY strong source still. Many people die virgins these days.
Also, increase in life expectancy would lead to more diversity and more genetic mutations, which would better facilitate speciation and divergent evolution. Humans will evolve. They may not die out, but they certainly will evolve, probably be different species sometime within the next million years.
>Technology makes us stupid, not smart.
No, I'm pretty sure people are just as intelligent as they were 500 years ago. Most people couldn't even read 500 years ago, now nearly everyone can read. The amount of information available out there is insane. Your average person knows WAY more about the world than they did before technology. Intelligence is based more on upbringing and genes, which is pretty static. People are still inventing crazy shit, there are still quantum physicists out there, there are still nuclear engineers, there are still rocket scientists.
Please stop with your pessimistic, inaccurate bullshit
A couple, actually.
And Stargate, and Seaquest, and lots of other shit. Red dwarf had a vindaloo evolve into sentience.
Hell, Daniel ascended every other week near the end of SG-1.
Federation/Starfleet is nothing but a pipedream that we're more like thousands of years of fulfilling (if the technologies depicted are even actually possible), rather than hundreds. At best.
It's really fucking good science fiction, though. Too bad it's fiction.
>Source? First off, Natural Selection may have diminished in humans, but sexual selection still exists and is a VERY strong source still. Many people die virgins these days.
That's a bad thing. he was talking about humans evolving along good patterns. Don't fucking reddit source me ya punk, just because you don't know shit about how natural selection works. We adapt to our environment, and we make our environment as cushy as possible. Here's humanity in a billion years.
>Most people couldn't even read 500 years ago, now nearly everyone can read.
Wow, memorization! what a stunning criterion for intelligence! I guess now that apes can read they must be so much smarter than they were a hundred years ago!
>People are still inventing crazy shit, there are still quantum physicists out there,
Who find particles that exist for an attosecond. Wooo!~
>there are still nuclear engineers,
Who people won't go near because radiation is seen as a witch's curse by the populace.
>there are still rocket scientists.
And they work 80 hour weeks on shit pay just to make musk's nose grow.
Delusional space enthusiasts work like bigfoot hunters. Nothing can convince them because they hold axioms that paint themselves into a logical corner.
It's good science fiction, but yeah the numbers for matter/antimatter reactions are way off, as are most of the scientific concepts.
That doesn't bother the delusional crowd. A warp drive can exist until god proves it can't somehow.
hey guys need some help,
What were the mods that:
>Let you see really far craft as pixels in the sky, so you can see your ships orbiting
>Lets you attach cameras to the hull to work with rasterpropmonitor
>That's a bad thing. he was talking about humans evolving along good patterns. Don't fucking reddit source me ya punk, just because you don't know shit about how natural selection works. We adapt to our environment, and we make our environment as cushy as possible. Here's humanity in a billion years.
No. I'm just not retarded. Sexual Selection is a thing and was in the origin of species, and described by Darwin to be the most important part of human evolution.
>Wow, memorization! what a stunning criterion for intelligence! I guess now that apes can read they must be so much smarter than they were a hundred years ago!
You said smart, not intelligent. Smart includes knowledge, knowledge has grown tremendously since the middle ages.
>Who find particles that exist for an attosecond. Wooo!~
What's your point? Because we're not constantly inventing new things like in the renaissance we're some how worse off? What do you think a golden age is?
>Who people won't go near because radiation is seen as a witch's curse by the populace.
Radiation is incredibly dangerous. Most people are right to avoid it because it causes cancer or worse. I'm saying there are still very smart people who know how to deal with radiation and convert it into usable energy or other endeavors.
>And they work 80 hour weeks on shit pay just to make musk's nose grow.
What's your point? I'm saying there's plenty of smart people, and the average intelligence has not changed with technology. Dumb people are still dumb, smart people are still smart.
>b-b-but I watched Idiocracy
Which is a fictional movie that sounds like it makes sense, but it's completely baseless.
You are right. Sexual selection is a powerful evolutionary factor. Just look at something like a peacock.
It's feather display is entirely a sexual evolution tool and doesn't contribute to flight, camouflage, or any of the survivalist attributes people normally associate with evolution.
Survival is only part of evolution. Successfully passing on your DNA is the most important part.
Distant Object Enhancement
I think maybe ExtCam or something.. otherwise, the ALCOR capsule/pod has an extrernal camera that's placeable on any ship, and works with RPM, it's in the "ALCOR props pack" or some shit.
>No. I'm just not retarded. Sexual Selection is a thing and was in the origin of species, and described by Darwin to be the most important part of human evolution.
Well i guess he knows everything about evolution because he's darwin, right?
How are people going to be smarter from sexual selection? If anything, it's only going to worsen our issues. Look at how our shit morals affect everything.
>You said smart, not intelligent. Smart includes knowledge, knowledge has grown tremendously since the middle ages.
so apes are smarter now than 100 years ago because some can read? You know this future you keep parading about isn't available in most countries where most of the people live?
>What's your point? Because we're not constantly inventing new things like in the renaissance we're some how worse off? What do you think a golden age is?
Quantum mechanics has only produced one useful invention, the semiconductor. That's it. It's useless and pointless and it's hilarious how many kids are stuck as perpetual postdoc because we don't even have half as many labs as we have researchers because the science is worthless beyond academic interest.
>Radiation is incredibly dangerous
No it isn't. You must have seen how people panicked when they thought that one tide chart was a radiation chart from fukushima. Nobody knows what a becquerel is so just shut up. All the science education of the last 20 years has done is give everyone their own idea of how the world works.
>What's your point? I'm saying there's plenty of smart people, and the average intelligence has not changed with technology. Dumb people are still dumb, smart people are still smart.
So smart people are sequestered away in dead end tasks because science fiction santa said they could have warp drive if they were good this year. Well that sure makes me happy to think about.
>Which is a fictional movie that sounds like it makes sense, but it's completely baseless.
What the fuck are you on about?
Good luck, dude, playing from IVA can be enjoyable (for KSP), and otherwise, the ALCOR pod is really fucking cool for IVA flights. Lots of clickable buttons you can use to control your ship.
When I start playing again, I think I'm going to try an all-IVA career. Post any other/better camera mods you find, if you keep looking.
>Well keep moving that goalpost and eventually you'll score.
I thought this entire discussion was about progress. I pointed out progress and you argue by saying "Well it's only progress"
>Look up a guy named Eratosthenes
Determined the size of the Earth, of course I've heard of him. You seemed to only be concerned with practical advancements, though.
>What about all the millions who died from fukushima caesium water washing ashore? Remember that panic? Remember when every smart fellow in the first world bought out the iodine pill supply because of this TIDAL chart that they misinterpreted to be radiation?
Just because people overestimated the danger of one nuclear meltdown doesn't mean radiation isn't dangerous. Why do you think you have to wear a lead vest now when you go to take x-rays? Are you seriously this retarded?
>My point is they don't matter. Smart people don't make decisions. Their bosses do.
I don't think you have a point. You started off by saying people are getting dumber and not evolving. I pointed out how stupid that statement is. Now you're saying there are smart people, but they're held back by politics and bureaucracy
Please just go eat plutonium. It's not dangerous, and I think it's a great idea for you to do.
>can't make the new parts fly correctly with NEAR
I can't seem to get enough control authority, doesn't matter the amount of shit I add or its placement, shit's unresponsive, it eithers doesn't produce any response or over-deflection causes the control surface to stall.
tl;dr I can't use the only important feature in this update
Using NEAR, my own parts, modulemanager 2.5.1, realchute and some part mods modified by myself to remove the need for stupid plugins. So I believe either NEAR doesn't like the new control surfaces or I suddenly suck at spaceplane design.
>had old parents
>been in and out of hospitals my whole life as a result
>not a SINGLE X-ray technician knew where the radiation came from or why the lead apron was necessary.
People have become smarter at being stupid, if anything. stop a random person and ask them how a battery works, how their wifi works, how their computer works, anything remotely technical and they'll be stumped.
Ask your average person in the 1700's how the sun rises in the morning. They'll either say God does it or be stumped.
What's your point? Average people have always been dumb. They haven't gotten any dumber.
Old, shitty, Interstellar plasma/SABRE-powered SSTO design.
Can't get a better screenshot, none on my hard drive, and the save it belongs to is fucking DEAD (thanks, Squad).
Carried 20t to Mun once. I'm not certain, but I'm not entirely convinced it should have flown, even under FAR like I was using it. The wings have always seemed stupid to me, but I was fucking high when I made it. I just kept it because it proved reliable.
>the singularity is just abrahamic religion with god crossed out and tech tech written in, and jesus crossed out and "science money" written in.
Same promises, different prophets.
>on the moon
If a single dysfunctional rover is your standard of "progress," the Soviet Union was and still is the Earth's last great bastion of science.
People who think the US "beat" the soviets in the space race are literally retarded. The soviets were way ahead of us, and then we decided to draw an arbitrarily line and say that's where it ended when we went there.
>post thing making fun of SJWs
>mods suddenly decide it's time to actually delete things
Guys, I think I've just found a way to exploit the mods into actually doing their jobs
Maybe this whole gg no re thing isn't that bad after all
I'm a US citizen.
They beat us to Space, that was our goal. They beat us to Space Station, that was our goal. They beat us in the "Don't overestimate the value of re-usability and stick to classical rocket design" race.
yeah but i think when you take the long view of history the more significant event is a man first stepping foot on another celestial body.
Incremental design is great and all, but Americans invented flight in the first place, so couldn't you say the russians were working off our technology?
>speed is good
>control surface deflection appears to be optimal
>shit wont pitch up further than that
>Don't overestimate the value of re-usability and stick to classical rocket design
Meh. Russkies had a "buran" and it just rusted in hangar until the roof crashed. Now only dummy remains, and it is used as a fucking attraction.
What do you mean? The V-2 rocket was the first man made object to reach space. It was suborbital, but we like to consider John Glenn to be the 2nd man in space, we have to say that the Nazis were the first in space.
I'm not trying to prove a point. But except the fact that the "US invented flight, so we invented space travel" is completely asinine
I'm shit at drawing but I still wanted to draw something so here
Some of my previous art
>that was your guys' goal too
Not really. They had been aiming for a Mars mission starting in the 50's, and then, when the U.S. made a big deal about going to the Moon, they put aside a small project to use some of the infrastructure they were going to use for that (along with their space station program,) to develop a program to go to the Moon. The U.S. dumped much more money into it, however, and got to the Moon first, and then quickly threw all that away for a partially-reusable manned faring that served no real purpose.
The USSR just kept going with their established infrastructure to build on their Space Station program, which is still active today (Mir 2, began in '76, ended up becoming the Zvezda module of the ISS.)
Yeah you are right. Russia totally is winning the space race today.
DR was the one responsible for the KSP weekly things, frequently it seemed like he didn't give a fuck and didn't bother doing it and so we got "Nothing to report" from him about it a number of times.
That is a political issue, not a technological one. We currently operate the Delta IV heavy, the most powerful rocket in the world. It could carry humans to space if we wanted it to.
The Space X Dragon and Dragon II were both designed from the start to carry people. They could carry people if we wanted to.
Space X is working on the Falcon Heavy which will be even more powerful than the Delta IV Heavy.
The Orion capsule is going to be tested soon being launched by a Delta IV Heavy.
We have numerous systems online and about to come online that are far beyond any capabilities the soviets have.
Oh wait, you're talking about just the kerbal? I thought they introduced some shit like you have to rescue a stranded space craft.
Yeah, just make sure you have an open seat in your re-entry pod, and when you get within like 200m of the kerbal you can switch to him by pressing [ or ], and then move him to your craft.
>Look at all these massive launch vehicles we're not doing anything with
Soviets are launching economy efficient vehicles. We're stroking our penises with large rockets. Bigger is not better.
Soviets are studying things in space, like the effects of long exposure to micro gravity. We're studying the biomes of Mars. We're studying different things, one is not better than the other.
>Implying America Doesn't own Low Earth Orbit
And yeah the Russians totally put the most advanced telescope ever into orbit, and are currently building superior ones in the X-ray, Infrared, and radio wavelengths.
Yeah the tiny Soyuz totally pwns us.
>Sometimes I think the world forgot about me
The only man made objects to leave the solar system are American
Rescued that cunt just in the nick of time. I'm using the TAC life support mod and he was almost out of oxygen. I don't have multi-Kerbal pods yet, so the ship is just the one I used to orbit my first duder, with the parachute replaced by a probe and radial parachutes.
Russia totally took these hi res images of Saturn's moons.
Guys I just learned something.
QT IN SPACE RIGHT NOW
There's a QT in space, holy shit, why didn't I hear about this until right now?
I think she lost some weight for the launch.
Also, her hair looks way less bald now.
It's not an autism thing, 99% of female astronauts are not qt. They're mostly uggos. I would actually fuck this chick
Judy Resnik died on Challenger. I think she wins as cutest astronaut.
Definitely cute, but don't forget pic related.
>You're in the ISS
>You wake up

just got back from uni and am fucking glad that it's friday afternoon. Thinking about what to cook for dinner. Probably a Japanese curry or omlette ramen. Also playing Alien Isolation
So you're aware in the future, TAC handles those contracts like this- before a vessel is loaded for the very first time, it's in stasis. So, the clock on their suit resources doesn't start ticking until you actually rendezvous with them

Yes, as a matter of fact. Got 430 science, some cash, and my duder back.
I'm going to be honest, I'm enjoyinh 0.25. In previous versions, I would have rolled my eyes and groaned at losing that mention, because it just means I'd have to do it again, but having money and science on the line actually adds some tension to it.
I have had the same problem. I got .25, fired up my favourite SSTO just to notice it won't pitch. I suspected the new control surfaces. I downloaded the redux pack, slapped on the old standard control surface et voilà! everything worked again as before.
>name = ModuleLiftingSurface
>deflectionLiftCoeff = 0.3

>dragAtMinAoA = 0.1
>drag at maximum angle of attack is still a quarter less than every other part in the game
>because drag is proportional to mass this is actually significant for these parts as opposed to nosecones
I would also put science on 100%. I still hate the transmission loss of fucking numbers and getting science from Kerbin alone is so tedious. I was so glad when I could fly to the moon.
Also I took the opportunity of a fresh save to move up the KER 1.0, being able to grab all the stuff I want from three panels and stick it into one is really nice.
So can I build the MAKS with the new plane parts now?
Do you guys have any idea how I can get kerbals into those glass tunnels added in Lack Luster Lab's part pack? I can't seem to use any of his hatch exits and airlocks for whatever reason either.
Sounds like your left key has gotten stuck in the game. Try tapping it a single time while flying and see if that fixes it. Otherwise, look at the yaw indicator and see if it might be SAS giving phantom input
The fact that numerous people are reporting a similar yaw issue leads me to think that's not it.
Also the fact that if it were my key being stuck, it would show up as input on the attitude control gauges. Also with SAS on those same control gauges show it fighting against that leftward tendency, but not strongly enough.
Wow, contracts are so fucking broken. I sent a pod to the moon. Find out it hasn't enough deltaV to get back home. I let it stay there. Contracts "Plant flag on moon" and "Get science from space near moon" often pop up.
EVA, plant flag, done. Hover 1m above the ground, do science transmission, profit. What a shit.
Installed the new update, why are the grass textures so shitty? I have it on max.
Piece of shit planets and moons refuse to let me land on them how the fuck do they manage to keep dodging my rockets
Also going to orbit then going to the moon or someshit is awful and if you do that then it's worse than being a neet
>Wheels explode if they roll too fast
HOW DO I FIX THE FUCKING TEXTURES
Anyone else downloading that one .25 Linux torrent? It's almost done for me. It has two seeders.
Should I delete the torrent when it's done?
Every time I try it, it's always too fucking buggy to be useable.
Last .24 build I tried had terrain floating above certain launchpads or otherwise divorcing itself from ground level.
I really like the idea, and want to eventually play it exclusively. Its devs (including for Realism Overhaul) are nearly as bad as Squad.. with a definitive autismal tendency to yell at people that just want to play their mod.
I wish someone more competent would take over RSS development.
Or, at least, that a 1/10x RSS .ctg would finally get created using the proper atmospheric values.
What's you longest running mission? This poor bastard has been in space for three years now, and I guess it's another year before he makes it back to Kerbin. But of course life support is 2hard4billy so it's really irrelevant.
Had the terrain float bug too, solved it by repeatedly installing and uninstalling textures and visual enchancements until shit worked. The only game-breaking bug I've had is Engine Ingnitor making game shit itself with lags, so had to uninstall it. Other than that, shit's okay. Worth it.
Also don't know why would you hate the devs, NathanKell seems like a pretty adequate guy.
Not the best angle to arrive at Jool I tell ya hwat.
Passing right above Jool to jump on Laythe from above like a panther, or jaguar or some shit along those lines.
NathanKell's a bro, RedAV8R or whatever I've seen sperg out too many times on people that just wanted simple tech support questions answered.
There's a right way and a wrong way to handle that thing publically, regardless of how stupid the question is. A 1-2 paragraph-long post about how stupid the user in question is for having asked it is wrong, especially when a simple "Hey, this isn't the right thread/board for that kind of request, go over to _____, and they can help you out" will suffice just fine.
He does more with Realism Overhaul than RSS though.. luckily most of the Realism Overhaul shit is masturbatory and not entirely required for playing RSS.
Months ago (around 23.5) I fucked up and had a Mun lander run out of fuel on the way back home. Poor little shit ended up orbiting Kerbin on a highly elliptical path while I attempted to build a rescue ship, but somehow got sucked back into the Mun's SoI and shot off into the solar system.
I used a ship with the ARM claw to save him because his ship didn't have docking ports. Little guy orbited the sun for 10 years before finally stepping foot back on Kerbin. He was remembered as a hero, and my first man on the Mun on that save.
Oh that. Fuck that guy. I searched forums for the solution of Engine Ignitor problem, and the only other poster who had it has been told off by this cunt because "he should've followed the installation rules strictly, not kinda sorta" or something. What a fag.
Don't worry, even if you follow the installation rules to the letter, you'll still get that response, regardless of whether or not it has a fucking thing to do with the problem at hand.
I'm surprised Squad doesn't hire him.
You've got me beat by like 70 hours.
I'm glad I'm not the only one that's sunk an absurd amount of time into this piece of shit game.
The game itself is pretty good if played with the right combination of mods.
Squad does everything it can to prevent you from enjoying it that way for very long at a time, though. At least 300 of my hours are from having to restart a campaign over the summer that .24 fucked up royally.
Discovered career in .24 was ruined, then just decided to roleplay a "commie" space program that gets funds injected every year or so through save editing. Contracts just became "goals/quotas" set by the Party.

Everything works great except for pitch authority.
Is anyone else using FAR/NEAR? can you please show me a plane that works correctly using only the new parts?
I know that much, I was coming in from very very far away, behind the mountain range. I had no control authority yet my wings ripped off themselves for some magic reason, that's the mistery, then without wings I plummeted down at twice the speed of sound.
Sounds like you still were going ridiculous sanic speeds. The faster you go, the harder it is to maneuver. If you try to maneuver when going fast then your wings will break off.
Thing is, ksp's overpowered engines make mach 1 seem like walking speed so its stupid easy to make your wings fall off with far.
I just disable that option
jesus fucking christ, I know I was going fast, but Ih ave no pitch authority at all and that's my problem. neither going slow or far or mid speed or with wings forward or back, with a dedicated stabilizer or with deltas, the only flyable thing for me is conventional planes or ugly canards
So what would be the real life equivalent to this? Do we even have satellites for interplanetary communication or is it all ground based?
With FAR installed, everything starts looking like dicks.
Pictured is my dick Minmus orbiter.
That's just one program. Are ESA, JAXA, ISRO and all the others surface based as well? Makes sense though, it's cheaper to build a bigass antenna on the surface than building it spaceworthy and launching it.
Most of my time was spent over the summer, during my semesters, I don't get to play.
But, the study abroad trip to slavland I had lined up for May-June this year fell through, and I didn't get to go. By that time, it was too late to get an internship or something for that period, and I didn't want to go into some shitty summer job that I'd have to inevitably quit (and knowing my area, would have been either retail or fucking food service slave labor anyways).
So, I smoked weed and went to space for 3 months instead.
Getting to Minmus is finicky as fuck. You can't see it in the shot, but the orbit indicators are jumping around like crazy. I keep having to make 0.4 dV adjustments.
>Space Engineers free weekend

>Runs like total shit
>Could fuck with bios and see if it improves
everything else on the PC runs fine, fuck that. It's frustrating there is actually a creative game that runs worse than KSP.
>trying to sift through KSP forums to look for mods I used to run, check whether they've updated yet
>too many billies posting, by the time I go to a new page, everything from the previous is there
>decide to get drunk and play something else instead
I hate them. So fucking much.
The bad news: Lenfred is stuck in orbit around the Mun, without enough fuel to return to Kerbin.
The good news: He gathered a shit ton of science, he has enough resources to last for weeks, and the lander will work fine on Minmus.
>not vertical stabilizer
>not 1250 wth over 500$ backpack
>no vertical stablizer
So I'm just thinking, should I download 0.24.2 x86 (because I have x64 and its literally unplayable in reliability now) or get 0.25.0 x86, even though no mods are going to work in it, and therefore overall fun is limited.
Guess critical mods for me are FAR and pWings, if anyone knows about those and 0.25
That statement makes no sense. A craft can be controllable without a vertical stabilizer, but only with differential thrust. The idea with spaceplanes is that they are going to be underpowered on reentry. I mean, I guess it would make sense to provide a tiny bit of thrust for yaw control, but that would require you to have unnecessary fuel onboard, making reentry more complicated. The vertical stabilizer does increase drag, but that is a necessary loss you have to take... Even future hypersonic craft like the SR-72 are going to have vertical stabilizers.
So, yea... unless you like planes spinning out of control then you gonna need a rudder on it.
McDonalds only if you aren't going to get the sweet chili chicken mcwrap with no fries.
I've seen mods not be in that list because either no one said it's still compatible, or because very minor checks were needed by the user. It's not comprehensive.
Either way, thanks.
Posting here for the first time in 8 months, did they fix this game yet?
Last time I played it suffered from terrible framerate drop, agonizing load times and shit like docking ports breaking and ruining everything.
I'm drinking alone again.
Anyone wants to join?
But I'm a lightweight, I think I'm already ahead of you.
oh god, who's going to download this just to see how bad it actually is
I ignored the last piece of shit like this hoping it was unique and would never happen again
I was wrong
..and here I am, swilling vodka and coke.
That said, I come from a long line of alcoholics. I tend not to drink to excess in face of responsibilites, and drink too fucking slowly to ever really get drunk.
Still, you are smalltime.
I wouldn't be so sure. Artyom is a wizard, and I was chatting with satch while she was having vodka shots and she was able to form coherent sentences in her non-native language the entire night.
So, the parts aren't actually horrible. Just nothing special.
Sent up a little probe to refuel Lenfred. 10k more dollary-doos down the drain on this shit-show of a mission.
Is it because I am tiny? I AM tiny. Wy would I lie?
>Artyom is a skellington
you haven't seen me
Should I just get blitzed and see how long I can tolerate career mode for?
Oh shit, I'm gonna do it!.
But muh bloat!
I did it, just a little before signal blackout (relay sat is in low Jool orbit.
One is for the Jool relay, the other is pointed at Kerbin for the trip to Jool, and also for redundancy, and balance since one of those weigh half a ton.
Recycled design, don't feel like designing a new ship from scratch for every mission. This was originally for hauling asteroids I think.
>you are cancer
>for not building a new ship every mission
Bitch please. You're lucky if I even modify one of my designs every 10 missions. I have proven, reliable lifters, landers, transfer stages, etc. Y'know, kind of like an actual spess program.
What these guys said.
My last career save had a ship type that I designed to transfer to/orbit any planet, with enough dV for a couple orbital maneuvers before coming home. I just used it for fucking everything for a while, until I needed to build something to carry a heavier load.z
You keep wasting your time designing unnecessary ships, billy. The rest of us have better shit to do.
About recycled designs.
This game becomes incredibly easy when you take the time to create a small, medium, and large lifter rocket in the subassemblies.
Then it becomes similar to real life rocket systems where you just build whatever cargo you want on top and launch.
I'm not the drinking anon, but I decided to share my shitty little camera satellite I made because my example of the poison parts pack looked like an old camera to me.
I think I should blow it up.
This is the only thing I ever use to transport shit into spess.
why do women have no common sense?
your cheatengines are unimpressive
