Kerbal Space Program Megathread V1

Post by Tau » Wed Jun 26, 2013 6:37 pm

I think there are at least five or six people on the forum who play KSP. We should all play together at some point. Discuss.

I still don't get why most of my ships fall apart during launch :[ . I guess the lower part of my ship flies faster than the upper one even though they are part of the same freaking whole , damn game physics -.- , I began to put boosters on the upper sections of my ship so that they won't collide into each other and it all looks dumb now ...

The problem is that some parts in the middle don´t hold under the pressure of the engines pressing against it.
For some reason that effect is strenghtened by less densely atmosphere, so on a certain hight it will just collide with itself.
Short: some part of your ship is too thin.
Solution: Find out exactly where it breaks and make tht rocket thicker on that part. Should work.

The stress of the atmosphere causes the ship to collapse. You should try and strengthen the middle, with struts or other support structures.

Well obv it breaks on decouplers and I am not sure that there is a better solution than just putting loads of support struts to make your rocket look like a circus tent, and also boosters on the top ! Yea I put struts in every single possible weak spot and it still doesn't help, one time I managed to lift off leaving behind the lower stages of my rocket :tongue: . Well I do try not to fly too fast and actually manage to survive from time to time but that is really annoying.

Are the decouplers really connected? That sounds like you don't have them connected properly...

You need more struts, they are the gaffa tape of KSP

Try making a horizontal rocket with a jet engine instead of a rocket engine and jet fuel tanks instead of liquid fuel tanks and add an air intake and wings.
Most difficult is wheels:
I prefer 1 centered at the front and 2 angled right in front of the engine.

As for my problem obv my decouplers are connected I've told you I had 50/50 successful takeoffs and horrifically funny crashes.

Try making struts connecting the stuff above and below the decoupler.
Worked for me.
I don´t know what design you´re trying, but 4-6 struts in total should definetly be enough.
If they aren´t, you might have to completely redesign the rocket.

Make sure the struts bridge the portions that fall apart. You could also try shortening the rocket if it seems too tall.

The problem most people have is making a rocket bigger than it needs to be and they don't realize that and when they go to launch it breaks apart. I'm telling you right now, if you think you need that orange tank for your mun rocket, you don't.
