[Answered!] Interplanetary Thrust? on Kerbal Space Program

Hey guys, trying to figure out the best way to desing my first interplanetary station. Specifically, how worried should I be about my TWR? I can't decide between the trade-off of delta-v and twr, any help? Never done an interplanetary mission before, so I don't know what to expect. What kind of burn times am I looking at? What kind of time-frames should I expect between nodes? But first I don't even know if it'll move in any sort of useful way so let's take care of that first.

Stats as it would be in LKO now:
.72/2.72 TWR with 4779 DV
2144t

Used TweakScale by the way to make the dream of building a station capable of carrying out all science! Obviously this is maybe a bit on the "cheap" side but just trying to have some fun with this mission while I get my planet-traveling feet wet.

If you guys want screens or something else let me know, playing right now actually so Ill be popping between KSP and the boards.

[Answered!] Interplanetary Orbits on Kerbal Space Program

Hey, Sorry if this is posted somewhere else. So, I am having a problem with interplanetary orbits. When I leave Kerbin's sphere of influence my orbit drastically changes from relative to the sun and I am no longer on an intercept, sometimes over 1000 delta v off of my intercept with a target. Is there any way to correct for this? This is when I leave orbit around Kerbin: http://imgur.com/uMu7CbS And this is when I enter into the Sun's: http://imgur.com/0jp5bp1 Thanks ...

[Answered!] Ion Engines and Interplanetary Transfers on Kerbal Space Program

I have an ion-powered probe that needs to get to another planet, but the ejection angle places the node very much on the dark side of Kerbin. Is there any way to work around this? Will warping to the next transfer date work? ...

[Answered!] Advice needed for dV charts - Low orbit burns on Kerbal Space Program

Hello, I've looked around a lot before finally deciding to make this thread. I've been using delta-V charts, but this thing has always bugged me off. The "low orbit" required delta-V. While intercepting bodies whose I can't use aerobrake, I follow the chart's dV needed to kill my velocity until I get into the desired low orbit. But no matter what, everytime I set a maneuver node the body's periapsis to create the orbit, it will always require the double, or even triple of the dV spec...

[Answered!] Aerodynamics! on Kerbal Space Program

Hey guys! I've been playing KSP since open Alpha and been strapping into rockets ever since! This is my first post here and it's only because I have a very direct question: Do Aerodynamic forces take effect with Nose Cones yet??? I have been deployed (Active Duty Military) for the last 6 months and just got back, the last update I was a part of was the Meteor/Comet/Arm Grabber update for like 1 day before I had to leave... :( I was very sad and without a gaming laptop to take with me on deploy...

[Answered!] Exploding Launch Pad on Kerbal Space Program

So I finally had my first experience with "destructible buildings". It happened when I took a vehicle I've successfully used a couple times in V0.24 and put it on the launch pad. And the launch pad promptly blew up. Near as I can tell, from the stress of setting the rocket on it...? Now, this was NOT a Humongo-Booster[tm], certainly not by the standards I've seen tossed around here. Most of the mass was in 9 Kerbodyne SRBs that get it most of the way to orbit; those add up to aro...

[Answered!] What's Up with the Navball? on Kerbal Space Program

I've not played this game in months and just played it again today. I noticed that the Navball is different. In Orbit mode, I see a light-blue, circular marker. Later, I was spinning my rocket around to do a landing and saw a pink triangle like the one that appears on the map when plotting a maneuver. Like I said, it's been months since I last played so everything new(er) is, well, still brand new to me. What is new in terms of the Navball? I noticed already that if the maneuver node is not show...

[Stock craft] My Reusable Interplanetary Ships for Download on Kerbal Space Program

My feeling is that a mature space program would not discard most of each ship during each flight, but would rather make reusable craft which can deliver payloads and then return to Kerbin to be refueled, loaded up again, and sent out once more. I have built a few generations of such ships now, and several hundred of you downloaded my previous versions, so I decided it was time to update the designs. Primarily due to ARM parts, the part counts have been significantly reduced, and the large one no...

[Plugin] [0.25] Lost in Space v.0.1 (Grand Tour + Interplanetary Rescue Contracts) on Kerbal Space Program

This mod enables the following two contract types, that are already part of the KSP code base but for whatever reason not made available as part of the campaign: - Grand Tours, where you have to visit multiple bodies as part of a single mission. - Interplanetary rescue missions, where you get a Kerbal orbiting a body other than ...

[Unanswered] Help with plotting interplanetary trajectories on Kerbal Space Program

When it came to interplanetary flight, my first instinct was to plot a spoon out maneuver around the back side of the Mun, while the Mun was on the opposite side of Kerbin from the sun (a full Moon). Done right, this give you free escape velocity out of the Kerbin gravity well into solar orbit at Kerbin distance slightly prograde of Kerbin for the cost of an 800 m/s burn. (to go to the inner solar system, I would go retrograde to Kerbin) From there, I would plot a transfer orbit, letting the...

[Answered!] Only connect on connection points? on Kerbal Space Program

I think I saw in a thread somewhere that there was a button you could hold so that things would only connect on connection points, and not "flat connect" on any other surfaces? That would be very handy with the new cargo bays, I'm using part clipping to stick a junior clamp o tron since I can't place it dead center otherwise. ...
