Game: Kerbal Space Program
Monday, June 03, 2013
I have been sort of MIA from this blog, not because I am doing anything important, I have just been too damn addicted to this game.
|Kerbal Space Program website|
It is one of the most fun game that I have ever played that is still in development/beta. In short, the objective of this game is to build a spaceship and go to space. As it is still in development, you get to stretch your imagination as far out as you can and do whatever kind of crazy shit you want to. (Sandbox mode)
Been playing for the past... 4 or 5 days pretty much non-stop. The first thing I did was to try and land on the Moon, which I failed terribly and crashed into it. I learned how to set up a perfect orbit around Earth. (well, it's called Kerbal in the game)
Last of all, I spent like 3 days to really master how to build a spacestation. Which is something I'm in progress of now. Trying to dock 2 ships in space is definitely not as easy as I thought it would be.
So, the largest Space Station that I have managed to build so far is this.

Since there isn't any limit to what you can do, you can make really crazy looking rockets. This isn't really that crazy though, I've seen people online making just ridiculous designs.
So... after countless hours of tinkering, I decided to redo the space station, it's still in the early stages but I am really looking forward to how it'll look like once I've finish building it.

|Turn on the lights! Yes, lights are important|
I have gone through countless of designs just to send stuffs to the station. I refrain from reading guides of any sort online as it'll sort of defeat the purpose and make this a lot less fun. Pretty much just trial and error all the way until I get the design correct, then I'll start all over again trying to make it better.
As you can probably tell by now, this is an extremely geeky game. But if you're interested, you can find it on steam. (or torrent)
This probably isn't the greatest way to spend my time since I'm entering into a prison of some sort. (more on this another time) Man, I really need to clear out my blogging list soon.
