Kerbal Space Program
« on: 08 Aug 2014, 02:18 »
Hi All.

Sorry to post another thread (I have verbal diarrhoea tonight.)(laugh)

Anyway, Kerbal Space Program.
Does anyone here have this, pretty awesome looking space sim, and play it?

I only stumbled upon it two nights ago and downloaded the demo version of it to try.
At the moment I am hooked and have killed off so many Kerbals in my attempt to create a space worthy vehicle, capable of visiting the nearby moon 'Mun', that I am now a mass murderer.
Tonight was the maiden voyage of my new rocket and, it must be said, all was going swimmingly... That was until I overlooked a small technical detail and jettisoned the wrong section.8-0
This resulted in poor Mr Bill Kerman, my fearless/stupid astronaut, gradually disappear into the infinites of space in his un-powered space module, never to be seen again.:~(

As you can hear, I am totally enjoying the demo version and am thinking of purchasing the full version.

Are there any Kerbalers out there who have the full version and is it a good purchase?

Yours.

I'd love to get the full version but I can't afford it right now and it doesn't seem to go cheap in sales quite yet! Great game though, love what I've seen in Youtube clips and so on.

Hi DoorKnobHandle.

I heard that it's on Steam and that they are having a Summer deal on it.
I haven't checked it out, yet, so whether that's true or not... I don't know.
Not that it makes any difference to me as I refuse to create a Steam account. (I don't like what they do.)

Edit:
Just had a look on Steam and they are selling it for £20.00.
I may have to buckle and create an account after all.

Yours.
Jay.

I know, still a bit expensive for an early access game for me haha. I'm a poor student. As I said, lovely game though, I'm looking forward to owning it one day and giving it a try myself!

I see this game being played a lot on Twitch. Looks really good. I love the concept of it.

Hi Snake.

Well, I took the plunge and bought it from Steam.
Really like what I have seen so far.
Obviously there is much more to it than the demo version, more to graphics, gameplay and even runs smoother.

I have been doing the tutorials which I find rather confusing, at the moment.
The worst one so far is the 'Orbiting 101' tutorial.
For some unknown reason I can't seem to orbit Kerbal, well... actually I do know the reason and it's because I'm doing it wrong.:-[

Anyway, I'm off to kill a few more suicidal kerbals now in my attempt to land on Mun.(laugh)

Yours.
Jay.
