Pre-ordering is back up.
Damn, looking at the post back in July, this game has come a long way.
Also I love the Failcan 9. Cardboardbox is a boss.
oh? how is that thing working for you? launch any satellites with it yet? making th gyro currently aso it doesn't spin and rip the boosters off. sadly the heavy cannot work to full awesomeness till fuel lines are developed.
It's not exactly too tall. whatever is on top is supposed to sit inside the fairings :D
As for the curshing of the secound stage. you need to lean it side ways before it gets that high. i turn it at like 12km. I hope it is not a problem once it has cargo. but that probably will not work till they fix wobbling links.....
anyway, as for the ASAS on the second stage i have no idea why it does that.... but i find just turning sas off and on after separation with out turning the engines on fixes it.
Also, the secound stage can vertically land on its own power when the fuel tank has a small amount of fuel left :) just as SpaceX intends for the real rocket :D
eh. it is fixable after the second stage separates. The failcan9 needs some skill to fly correctly :) I have little problems with it these days but it can blow itself up if done wrong it seems.
but making the nose cones into SAS modules fixes the booster spin problem.
Took me a lot of time to make it, but it turned out okay, I guess.
First long video I've done.
if only you knew that 'X' key kills your engines in Orbital view. and ijkl keys used like wasd makes RCS work in a none spin way. but nice video man :D
Am I the only one that prefers to keep the North line on the bottom of the navball, and instead yaw to 90 degrees instead of rotating around then pitching down?
and yes yes yes

I usually land for 5-10 minutes and detach a (fake) science module then launch out again.
Good job on the rest though, I like how you handled that orbital transfer. (including the recovery from an orbit-gone-wrong)
When going from the Mün and back, you shouldn't burn so that your Apoapsis is in Kerbins direction, rather you should burn so that it's in the opposite direction from the direction the Mün is moving. (The Mün and therefore also you are already in an orbit around Kerbin, thus going in the opposite direction of that will immediately get you an elliptical orbit with an Apokee around the Mün's altitude, and a Perikee much closer to Kerbin.)
I might make a video too.
Yesterday I launched my first proper rocket. I burned at my Apopsis to enter a proper orbit as LaparNar has taught me and I had a bit too much force it seems, as instead of orbiting Kerbin I ended up orbiting it's star, whatever it's called.
I'll call it the sün.
Anyway, I just managed my first stable orbit, and I managed to get back to Kerbin safely. Hooray, I understand this game now.
I'm only one step from understanding how to catapult my enemies into the sun.
Uh, the Kerbol.
Thanks a lot for watching the video, guys!
Took me like 6 hours to finish that thing, due to a billion technical problems and lack of experience. :D
Going to attempt a direct ascent. Wish me luck.
I marked off my position on the map view every ingame hour, on a free-return trajectory:
Makes me want a built in history map, similar to the orbit map.
Hey guys, I just got Kerbal 0.12. What mods should I have?
Lunched a satellite
and came back near the KFC for the first time ever
I mean KSC not KFC....
Why do i always mistaken a space center with fried chicken
:d launched 50 mass into KSO. :D it is so "omg is that going to make it into orbit?" when you first launch. i wish rockets didn't wiggle so much. it makes it so inefficient fuel wise.
This is the landing procedure for the Aquarius CEV; I didn't feel like putting all these in a single post, so here is an album:http://imgur.com/a/w1ELY#0
In the first few pictures, you can see me putting the Habitation/Service module in an almost circular orbit; and the rest are landing the returning to Kerbin.
And imgur is retarded and might not load the whole album, so if you hit a dead end, just F5 the page.
