A couple of months, but I don't play that often, and I only have the demo version. And I've landed on the Mun (though due to a mishap, couldn't return, as the ascent/decent stage had to be jettisoned), but the mission I screenshotted wasn't a Munar flight. Rather, I was testing a new design (and a kickass playlist, with several amazingly appropriate songs), and just kept flying straight up. I actually reached escape velocity with plenty of fuel to spare. As I'd accidentally gotten myself stuck in heliocentric orbits with no chance of returning home before, I had to do a retro burn to keep from flying out of Kerbin's grasp. Really, my trajectory could only be more accurately described as a really, really, really high lob than an orbit per se (especially as it never went around Kerbin). It took me 4 days to reach apogee at 76,000,000m (for those of you who don't play, the Mun is about 11,500,000m), and 5 days from there to get back. About halfway to apogee, I realized that I'd be coming in too hot to make a successful landing unless I did a burn during re-entry (luckily, I had more than enough fuel to sufficiently slow myself down). After I landed and took the screenshot, I modified the design slightly, to make it capable of landing and returning from the Mun, as well as giving it more monopropellant. I've yet to test the modified design. [/aspiring aerospace engineer]


Nice work, please tell me you are using the racks to give yourself starting height alongside a safety buffer from the ground... on top of thta, if you want help in KSP rocket designs, I could definitely help. :) I was in demo for quite some time before a friend got me the game. He actually had two copies: his and the free one KSP sent him. Do you have struts -the structural braces- for this demo? I know the demo differs depending on where you got it.


I don't think I can do that in the demo. But I do have struts, and do make use of them. I remember once in one of the beta versions I had (IIRC, it was before they had fuel pipes), I had a design that didn't have struts (but needed them), and my rocket flew apart in mid-air. :lol2: So I use them whenever I can. How did your friend get a free KSP?

MIAMI DOLPHINS

It's coming home.

Half a bee, philosophically, must ipso facto half not be. But half the bee has got to be, vis-à-vis its entity - do you see? But can a bee be said to be or not to be an entire bee when half the bee is not a bee, due to some ancient injury?

You should probably read the entire Highwire thread and any parts of Tempsford you missed to get caught up.

Good, ebcause there's a lot of catching up to be done.

Pulling an all-nighter tonight - lot of stuff to catch up on, and I gotta be up by six AM to register for classes, so there's no point sleeping. I got loud music, essays, enough video games to choke an elephant, and 5-Hour to keep me awake, in addition to a really weird Excalibur one-shot that I'm working on now and trying to get finished. It's really fun, but I wonder if it should be canon or not?
Should be fun!

Will do when I finish.

Where was yours?

Seriously guys, I do apologize for not doing the linking very reliably - it's just a bit of a chore. And if it makes you feel any better, there are like 4-5 one-shots of mine I haven't linked either.

But yeah, starvation, thirst, sleep deprivation, intense pain, grief, and guilt for prolonged periods will do that to a person.

I'll be expecting a timeskip of around a week or so when we get back to Tempsford.

Not saying you'll do it, but I'm just thinking that it'd speed up Page's recovery process to the point of maybe we can at least talk to him?

There will be a timeskip when we get back, but I may talk about stuff going on in that timeskip via one-shot.

Probably.
However, I don't quite know if it'll have the effect on him she's counting on.

I'll see about getting a post up after my dental appointment tomorrow morning. Going to have braces on ALL of my teeth now.
