Im digging the cosmetic improvements, the VAB looks great


(I herd you liek asparagus)

Also, ASAS is much better now, and planes fly in a much less retarded manner (still kinda fucked up though)

Too bad the game engine is still garbage... I'm lagging out the *** when near my station yet my cpu and video card stay at 40%. Makes no sense.

Well... Because i'm so terrible i have to relaunch, and tweak things so often; These load times kill me!

Something with the new update makes the load seem twice as long.

But on the plus side, i like the few new objects. I built a ship with 75 objects or so, and it was all really smooth.

I haven't found the load times to be a problem at all - maybe 5-8 seconds to go from the VAB to the Launch Pad? The initial game load is the bad one, it's probably a 30-45 second load time.

Why is that dick shaped rocket with so many little fuel containers? Use 6 of the red ones and call it done.

Don't go judging a book by it's cover.


300 parts? I need to step up my game. I built a ship with like 200 parts once, it needed like 5 rockets to get off the ground, and even then once i was moving, it was tearing apart.

Another thing i have to do is research / find out how to control bigger parts more easily, not just in space, but take off and landing.

Is there a way to zoom out in the build hanger??

You can't ditch fat red tanks nearly as fast as you can ditch skinny white ones, so while the initial stage of red tanks is still carrying the weight of the top 1/3 empty tank, the initial stage of skinny tanks is jettisoned and you keep on trucking.

For more information...

Correct, you ditch the first set of red tanks at about 4-5k. Theres no big deal about where the load is. Up until about 10k you should be going straight up anyways. At 12-15k you drop the 2nd set of tanks. The big 1500 thrusters provide more than enough thrust.

Damn. Steam has fucked my New Vegas game too. Played the first 30 hours problem free. Update Steam and now for some reason it crashes constantly now, to the point I can't play it.

Ugh finally got it going. So there was some problem with the docking port from my tug boat to the station. I undocked and then it wouldnt let me go back to the space center so i had to plummet my tug boat into the planet just so i can restart. I can launch another tug boat, no issue, all i wanted was the station to be ok which it now is.

Next problem. The moon got worked around so now its a lot more rocky and has a lot more creaters on it... well my moon base is now sitting at a 30 some degree incline. Luckily even without engines the movement keys can still turn it a little bit. That said i retracted my 2 legs on the incline side and using the other 2 i am walking it down the hill to a more leveled area. 400-500m 1 meter at a time.

Alright we're back in business.

Added 3 orange fuel tanks, 4 more to go, 3 rcs tanks and increased orbit to 130,500km. The white little tanks will be jettisoned soon (still too full). Planning on adding quad lines for zenon fuel in the last spots.
