So much more than war...
By shandog137
Posted on 04/18/14
The recent blog, Peace in the Era of Call of Duty  really made me think about war games that dig deeper than simply a kill streak reward. The first game that came to mind was Spec-Ops: The Line and although I haven’t played it, I began to wonder if it did the war genre as...

I don't know if anyone else has played this or not, but it's one of the most fun free games I have ever played.

It's still on it's pre-alpha type stage, and is free thus far, but they're looking to expand it similar to what happened with Minecraft.

Basically, you build a rocket ship, and then fly it.

Found here

I think the site might be down right now, because a patch just got released, but it's worth a look at.

A friend of mine just got me into the game. It certainly has potential to be a great game. So have you gotten into orbital yet, Longo?

I've gotten up to like 400,000 meters as my best thus far.

I'm having more fun creating absurd rockets than functional ones.

I got into space.

100,000 meters.

And then i ran out of fuel, and then they continued on without stopping.
Poor little bastards.

[Edit]
I'm thinking i'm winning ATM;


Liquid fuel rockets are the shit.

I'm trying it. Every rocket I build with more than two stages always fires the wrong engines at the wrong time. No matter how I organize the icons, it's always messed up.

That reminds me, press T before you take off, or at any time, to activate auto SAS.

How did you control such a heavy thing?

I managed like 5 stages of liquid fuel and it was a bitch to control with any sort of reasonable throttle.

I like Jebediah's face on the screenshot. Everyone else is flipping out because they know they're going to die but he's having a blast.

I see your 2029 K and raise you:


The Parachute is just because.
Also, i've found out Jebediah ALWAYS has a blast. I'm not sure if he's just an eternally happy person, or retarded, or perhaps both.

Although to be fair, in Longos, there's a good chance he could have either:
1.) Kept going longer
or
2.) Returned home safely.


[Edit]
Hit 5000K, more or less stopped decelerating. Wish i'd left enough fuel to turn it around and bring it back.

Oh well. They will die slowly.

I did make it home safely. I could've gone further, but that rocket was just a trial attempt before I made it better, which I'm doing now.

Oh, and by the way, mods! The best mod is Sunday Punch. Found here: http://mod.gib.me/kerbal/mods/

Wooo, I'm a somebody now!

In other news, here's my ship what I used before


Simple, but effective beyond belief.

I finally figured it out. I'm at about 2800K and climbing. More on this story later.

Dude, 4 hours?

I can only imagine i would have been in the 5 digits if i left my 3000m/s one to idle for a while.

I could've left it running but I was like, "screw it".

Because my laptop sucks, to handle the massive power of my craft i had to drop the graphics to the minimum.

Cruising speed attained:


Under an hour:



[Edit]
And my modified design:



Actual ship itself:



Rockets get ditched quickly, then it actually looks good.

Yup. That was without any mods.

Here's what it looked like later:



95.8G...hmm.

And this happened just now, after I installed SP:
