Scott Manley being very silly, but in the process producing something that looks very, very buildable in styrene.... :wacko: :wacko: :wacko:

Original inspiration sketch by @GregroxMun:



Neophyte: Is Eris true?
Malaclypse the Younger: Everything is true.
Neo: Even false things?
MtY: Even false things are true.
Neo: How can that be?
MtY: I don't know man, I didn't do it.

Re: Kerbal Space Program videos: Kerbal paragliders

KSP is now up to version 1.4.3, but since nothing after 1.2-odd will run reliably on my ancient potato-PC, I havn't been paying as much attention as I used to.

However, this vid by Hazard-ish caught my attention. Apparently v 1.4.3 includes paragliders, so in true KSP tradition, this new toy has to be suitably abused...

On a livestream the other night, Scott Manley tried building a Rotodyne and a Credible Sport C-130 (Iran hostage rescue version with braking rockets), then cut the best bits down into a short video:

The 'Italian Job' landing and take off at 5:58 ate particularly amusing and/or impressive. ;D

KSP 2 has just been announced, produced by a different company (not sure of the behind-the-scenes there), for release next year. The video trailer looks awesome, though one should always take non-gameplay trailers with a pinch of salt:

Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P_nj6wW6Gsc

Scott talking about the trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D353IVwY_1g

Scott interviewing one of the devs: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n-xM_e5x6oc

There are a bunch of other videos of people doing similar interviews.

Scott Manley's pretty much given up on KSP these days, apart from using it to illustrate points in his astronomy/rocketry videos, however this might get him back into it. I've recently been watching his old Interstellar Quest series from 2013-2015 (106 videos!) which was just ending as I got into KSP. These videos are a particularly epic sample:

Interstellar Quest Episode 41: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GdBbfVzoehg
Interstellar Quest Episode 42: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lup16nAqwJY
Interstellar Quest Episode 43: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=joSMTAsfG2k
Interstellar Quest Episode 44: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1hWL-69qQuw
