With KSP, failure is not only an option, it's mandatory.

Did a few tutorial missions tonight. I managed to run my orbiter out of fuel and crash it into the planet during the orbit tutorial. The construction and launch tutorials seemed simple enough. See how I do when its not a tutorial.

Took a quick look at some mods as well. I'm shocked at how many their are. Anyone have any recommendations on must have mods?
PanzersEast: Have to think to myself.... will I play the first one by the Winter Sale?  Probably not, then I should remove Dragonfall
PanzersEast: but that is thinking too logically.... and Steam Sales are about ignoring Logic

^Excellent...sounds like current owners will be able to get Steam keys.  Hopefully this will make updating/patching a bit easier as well...

The latest patch added an autopatcher, but it isn't as easy as Steam's system.

call me when I can build Battlestars.
Toonces - Don't ask me, I just close my eyes and take it.

Gus - I use sweatpants with flannel shorts to soak up my crotch sweat.

Banzai Cat - There is no "partial credit" in grammar. Like anal sex. It's either in, or it's not.

Mirth - We learned long ago that they key isn't to outrun Star, it's to outrun Gus.

Martok - I don't know if it's possible to have an "anti-boner"...but I now have one.

Gus - Celery is vile and has no reason to exist. Like underwear on Star.

If you're into the rocket aspect of KSP (vs the space plane) I'd recommend either KW Rocketry or NovaPunch.  Both mods add lots more parts for rocket building.  Due to the number of parts in the mods, KSP will take longer to start so you may only want to use one of the mods.  And since it is "rocket science" ::), I like to use MechJeb, a "flight assistant autopilot".  I figure if the NASA astronauts needed computers and ground control assist for their missions, I can use MechJeb for mine :P

Just got this installed today, and it sure is fun. As Jh said earlier, it has put a complex subject into a format that makes it understandable, and that's not an easy thing to do.

I have not quite managed to get anything into space just yet, but its a lot of fun trying. Lets hope it continues to develop.

Lots of YouTube video tutorials, and vids in general, on the gameplay.  Fun to watch other people doing stuff (and making it look easy).
