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

The Ultimate Enterprise (CVN-1701 presumably...)

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.

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...

Re: Kerbal Space Program videos: Scott does STOL & the Italian Job

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

Re: Kerbal Space Program videos: KSP 2 and a blast from the past

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

The whole playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLYu7z3I8tdEmjsTPxZMAsU8_d30ctM1Hm

So it seems Scott Manley has been organising a KSP fighter design competition via his Discord channel (which is why I never heard about it: I don't do Discord). The competition uses KSP plus a mod called BD Armory which addes weapons and a bunch of other handy things. Players submit designs for each stage, according to changing design rules, and an AI then flies them against each other over multiple rounds. There are also points for style and poetry... ;)

He's putting edited highlights videos up on Youtube:

Episode 1: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qUTZgOnSkRs (only allowed to use the smallest engines in the game)

Episode 2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A-cQxOaylCk (got to use only one huge airliner engine)

There are links at the end of Episode 2 to unlisted videos which are just hours of combat footage.
