The Kerbal Space Program
Hey guys and gals,

There is a game, it's actually a few years old already. It's called the Kerbal Space Program.

The game is a simulator. You use different parts to build different vehicles to fly around the planet. Later you can also build rockets and spacestations and put them into orbit.

All this is programmed with fairly accurate and realistic physics.

And the worst part?
The guy making most of these videos for youtube calls himself HoC-gaming...

The game has made space-travel understandable to a completely new audience and is even being used by NASA. (Source: wiki)

RE: The Kerbal Space Program
Didn't we have a thread about this? or was it in the other forum?

Anyway... I hate it! it's terribly complicated and I don't have the patience I used to have for this kind of games anymore Tongue

But it's awesome, and I'll probably get again some time Big Grin

It's not incredibly complex, you just need to take it a step at a time. Thankfully, I know how you can do that with a little help Smile

Or just install an autopilot mod. You don't even have to use it much, but even Vostok and Mercury had more assists than vanilla KSP...

It is complex, it requires a lot of concentration. That doesn't mean is bad, CoD is complex and it's at least really popular. I just don't have the patience or the time for that kind of game right now, but it is awesome... and that's why I hate it, I want easy and quick awesomeness... Tongue
