[MEGATHREAD] What did you do in KSP today? (pic heavy)
Hi everyone! In honor of the new update that is coming out soon, I would like to create a nice user-friendly thread with the high hopes of making it a megathread.

Here's the question: What did you do in Kerbal Space Program today?

I formed a plan to get to Duna and successfully executed the first task of my mission: Build the ship. Here it is:

The rendezvous and docking went smoothly. It only took me some 20 minutes to rendezvous and an extra 5-10 minutes to dock. Now all I have to do is wait a while for Duna to align itself properly, then I'll be good to go.

What did you do?

It wasn't today, but the last time i played I landed a second lander on the Mun, within 100m of my first landing site and managed to take a rover out to the Armstrong monument

Well i learnt how to use the Whack-a-kerbal which you can find in the debug menu (alt F12) and i got a ton of new crafts and mods and i learnt there is a new update coming soon thanks to you :)

Tried to put a lander on the mun... but crashed into the surface

i was able to get my first satallite around kerbal,and the first part to my space sation! sadly both or in horrid orbits,the satallit beter than the space station,i have trouble doing orbit manuavers,above all being able to plane them in the short amount of time given(even though i only got the game today)im also having trouble with rocket designs,as i run out of fuel,or i put so much fuel on the rcket is unstble and hard to control

I managed to get the first 3 fuel pods on my space station. The XL solar arrey you see a bit behind my station is the munbus I use to transfer equipment to the mun. I plan on setting up a similar space station on the mun using the same core elements. The decoupler you see in the foront is from a spent engine stage.

Tried to dock to my space station, missed, had no thrusters left, slingshot round the mun, crashed into the sun.

First i sent up a high kerbin orbit space station. After that i sent up a return pod and a supply of Xenon gas. never know when i might need it. Then i sent up some more fuel and the first wave of Kerbans.

The station is most likely to become the pitstop of a future large scale Jool mission.

Can't believe this thread is still up after such a long time. For more inspiration check all my KSP screens!

How did you manage that during a docking procedure?

must have been some slingshot. If he stuck his tongue out of the airlock he would have licked mun.

While I waited for Duna to align itself so I could fly to it, I decided to plant a flag on Minmus:

The mission went well, with the landing and flight going smoothly.

If you look at the picture above, you can see that I attached a rover to the bottom-side of the lander. So after I was done planting the flag, I flew to a nice sight for which I could drop the rover. Although I had been to Minmus before, I forgot how low the gravity was, hence this:

I probably would've been better off dropping it on the Mun.

I made the Soviet Union land on Duna, and now the U.S is trying to land there as well. Besides that, my Marksman 3 probe made a orbit to Dres.

Yesterday I finished building the fuel lander that I'm now using to resupply my expeditionary mun rover. Docked it with my orbital fuel depot 40km above the Mun, exchanged fuel, deorbited it and landed within 3km of my rover (terrible aim, I know), refilled the rover's tanks, flew back up and rendezvoused with the fuel depot again.

Afterwards I launched my rover (using onboard thrusters) into a long-range flight towards a crater that I'd been meaning to explore. Used up descent thrusters just before I crashed into the surface, broke all 8 wheels but nothing else. Sent a repair crew from Kerbin, landed them, and repaired the rover; strapped them into chairs on the rover, and went exploring. :)

I managed to find that massive stone arch by the time I ended my session. All in about 3 hours.

I finally got my tanker ship into orbit and docked to my station, even though I didn't stay true to my original goal of having the whole tank filled with propellant. I managed to dock it with about 1/3 left, which is still a lot of propellant, but am am still a bit disappointed. Originally, I had no fuel line to this tank, but had it not been that way, I would not have been able to get into stable orbit.

Unusual was, that the orbiting was the hardest part this time. Getting massive payload up into stable orbit is no easy feat. The rendezvous went pretty well, even though the docking itself was messy, since my RCS ports were not in the ideal spots (I kept pitching, instead of just be able to stabilize a vector).

Overall a success, but not the ideal outcome.

I landed on eeloo
It was epic
I also sent a rover to bop and found the dead kraken easter egg

All peaces of my megaspaceship are in space but i am to stupid to dock... so thats my task today...again
