So what is Kerbal?

Postby Solaias » Wed Apr 08, 2015 7:17 pm

Never played or read anything about this game, so as players, what is it about and explain to me why I should play it? :)

One of the more concise descriptions I've seen is "Legos filled with rocket fuel.".

For a more detailed description KSP is a sandbox game with a verry acurate physics system and a bunch of parts that you can use to design and fly your own spaceships/planes/satelites/spacestations/rovers/cars/robots or any combination thereof that you can think up and get working.

A slight warning, as I mentioned the physics model is pretty accurate so you need to either have a basic grasp of orbital physics, be willing to read and watch a lot of tutorials, or be prepared to watch a lot of rockets blow up in various ways; the last probably applies regardless of the other two.

As the saying from back in the Orbiter community went "The difficultly curve is about as steep as a gravity well"; though KSP isn't quite as bad about it as Orbiter.

KSP is sweet!

Rocket parts, no limits or rules other then gravity and aerodynamics, and the only bad guy is your own self. You build things and make them fly, you hope... :twisted:

Looked at a couple of videos online. Looks interesting. :)
