    Thers a nice little trick (bug) that allows you stack the tri couplers at the same level. Plop down your first one, Then connect a second to it, click on one of bottom nodes on the second and wiggle it around untill it snaps to the bottom of the first coupler, rinse and repeat two more times and now you have 6 connections from 1 level of tri couplers, should be 9 but you can connect anything to the bottom of the first tricoupler. You can repeat this as many times as youd like.

    Edit: seems you can add onto those center nodes once you launch and then return to the VAB. Becareful using this, Its pretty shakey and the game doesnt like it when you have 27 liquid rockets going at once

    *edit* turned around shortly after, barely had enough fuel to retro back. At this rate they should make it back to Kearth in about 9 hours.

    6 hours and a 3mil meter apokee later..

    Great game.
    Current project: boost to orbit. Because liquid engines are for pussies.

    9x SRB -> 7x SRB -> 5x SRB -> 3x SRB -> 1x SRB -> 1x SRB -> 1x SRB


    oh, and remember lots and lots of SAS modules. I've yet to actually achieve a stable orbit with that configuration, but I've gotten the altitude down, just need to figure out when to go lateral.

    I can't get a nice stable orbit in 50-100km range. I either turn down too soon and don't get enough vert speed to get out of all atmo before reaching orbital speed, or i play it safe and end up on crazy 500km+ perigee orbits.
    i think ive reached escape velocity but my compy keeps dying welp

    might leave it running while im at work lol

    also you can share ships by sending someone the .craft file and dropping it in the ship folder

    Slingshot around Alpha Centauri ofcourse. He'll need to leave his computer running for 40000 years though.

    who the fuck wants to go back in the first place ?
    Viking, n.:
    1. Daring Scandinavian seafarers, explorers, adventurers, entrepreneurs world-famous for their aggressive, nautical import business, highly leveraged takeovers and blue eyes.
    2. Bloodthirsty sea pirates who ravaged northern Europe beginning in the 9th century.

    Hagar's note: The first definition is much preferred; the second is used only by malcontents, the envious, and disgruntled owners of waterfront property.

    I'm going 1% the speed of light. Assuming 4 LY away... 400 years to get there, 400 to get back....

    800 years I'll be parachuting back to earth \o/

    Isn't it 0.01% of the speed of light? Since that is 300 000km/s. So that'll be 40000 years and then back so 80000 :nerd:
