    It really is one of my favourite games, ever. KSP gets so much right.



    I too need balloons. How else will I tour Duna's poles, or launch my parasite SSTO?

    Minmus does seem to be popular, but I'm not convinced. It's easy to take off and land there, but intercepts are less easy and my SSTO designs can (just) make it into Munar orbit, but Minmus might be...

    I see you've escaped from under your ice cap in the KSP thread. I haven't had a chance to play with the new mining toys yet because I've only been playing career, but I think that's where they would...

    Soyuz-esque rockets work well in the smaller sizes, actually. I'm also finding that my larger 2.5m rockets are more stable than the smaller ones, FWIW. I just put a science lab on the Mun (the first...

    As someone who never even studied high school physics, I'd say it's fine if you enjoy learning and watching your rockets fail dismally sometimes (er, most of the time).

    I've used a single big solid rocket as an ascent stage without trouble, so gimballs aren't completely necessary, but they are nice. This was on a perfectly tubular rocket with fins. One thing I have...
