Default KSP is on STEAM!

Kerbal Space Program is now an "Early Access Game" available on Steam

Kerbal Space Program on Steam

If you haven't seen it before and don't know what it is about ... do youself a favour and D/L the Demo.

Essentially, you build rockets and space ships but underlining the giggles and explosions and the manic smiles of Jeb lies some real physics and some deep science.

You can actually accidently LEARN something if you're not carefull

So - After much (WAY too much) practice, I can finally dock. Creating a space station now and re-fueling it. I still have to move that large fuel tank to the back but I need a couple adaptor ... so I'm in the process of making one and getting it up there. Nothing more stressful than attempting to dock a 2 ton tube filled with highly explosive liquid onto a port no bigger than a Wamp Rat whilst whistling around a planet at 2000 m/s ...


... and, apparently, this is fun!

So it's really Fun or do I have to be Strategic-Game-Enthusiast ?

Challenging! It's all Sandbox ATM with a Career path in the future

First, there's making a ship ...

Then there's trying to get a ship into space

Obtaining a stable orbit is the next challenge.

Landing on Mun and Minmus (the two moons) (or even getting close ...) is the next goal

Getting Kerbanauts to those moons would seem easy after that.

Ahhh - a space staion. I could use that as a fueling station ...

... but that means I have to dock ...

And now? Off to Interplanetary Exploration!

There's lots of Tutorials and 'how-to' guides so don't let the Math and Science fool you. Once you learn to safetly dock and create a station then most of the terms and numbers stuff is pretty easy.

My station has progressed! Behold, my creation!

I started with the Tuts and it's quite complex.

Will take me some time to figure everything out.

I pre-ordered KSP ages ago, but never really invested any time into it. Now it's on Steam and the community has developed a fair bit now, I'm re-visiting with renewed interest.

I've ported over my license to the Steam release. I've been lurking in the forums and watching the great videos posted on YT. Namely this one:
pebblegarden - YouTube

Now, to build a launcher and insert a stable orbit...

BTW Judge, that's a stunning achievement! So, as you add to the mass of the station, do you have to give a bit of a prograde burn to maintain the same orbit? I love the idea of building a Base on the Mun....

Thanks a lot for the Link !



I had in the old days a Space-(Ship)-Simulator or how it was called, but it was really crap. KSP is much better.

My first fast build rocket didn't launch, as the Crane didn't release the top part / capsule, so all the rest got destroyed.
