"Plane Crazy 2", the Kerbalcidal death trap I failed to fly on Monday. · 2:20am June 11th

For those of you who play Kerbal Space Program and saw Monday's stream, this is the single-seater plane that killed two kerbals in about three minutes and never got farther than the end of the KSP runway. It was that bad.

I invite you to try it yourselves and give feedback, though my personal guess is it was a combination of inadequate lift, tail-heavy, and pilot error.

KSP Livestream tonight... · 11:01pm Nov 25th, 2019

Part 10 of Rule of 7: rescuing the last tourist from Part 9, rescuing two stranded astronauts, launching and then docking with a satellite around the Mun, and dropping a probe with the WORLD'S LARGEST ROCKET ENGINE on Minmus.

All in one launch.

See you tonight at http://twitch.tv/redneckgaijin , beginning 7 PM Central!

Another killer plane from KSP. · 6:19am June 16th

This one needs a little more explanation.

I'm not sure this one even flies much short of supersonic. I do know that at 300 m/s or higher the thing is nearly unsteerable- probably due to the canards I put on the nose to move the center of lift forward a bit. I'm pretty sure those were a bad idea, at least without control surfaces.

But that's not what killed a kerbal.

New Game · 10:25pm Feb 3rd, 2016

I got Kerbal Space Program today.

Now I'm no rocket scientist, but I'm aware of the basic rules and mechanics of space flight and aeronautics. Lift surfaces on the centre of mass, slingshotting off planets, Delta V, aerodynamics, that sort of thing. It would help if I did the tutorial, now I'm stuck because I don't know all the hotkeys. I got throttle up, zoom and camera rotate as well as the aerofoil control keys and that's about it.

There's a long road ahead...:rainbowlaugh:

KSP Livestream Tonight... · 11:22pm Dec 2nd, 2019

So, I've had a frustrating and mostly futile afternoon...

... so of COURSE I'm going to top it off with a livestream of Kerbal Space Program in which I try to correct last week's fuckups.

Begins 7 PM Central time (about an hour and a half after I post this).

There will be another KSP livestream Thursday at 7 PM, by the way.

Mun Miner Pt. 5 Edited and Up · 2:33pm May 30th

And most of it is dull, because most of it was successful (and kind of easy).

But don't worry, there's an explosion near the end.

One more try... · 11:06pm Sep 30th, 2019

In about an hour I'll make another stream attempt- KSP again. (7 PM Central, Twitch.tv/redneckgaijin ) .

Speed tests with my ISP seem to be normal, and TwitchCon is over, so maybe things are fixed now. We'll see. No guarantees, though.

This week's livestreams... · 11:36pm Nov 18th, 2019

Those on my Patreon will already see the links for a LOT of streaming stuff! But here's the non-Patron-exclusive links:

Tonight, 7 PM Central: Kerbal Space Program- The Maretian

I'm going to build Concordia! (Probably not launch it, though. It would take multiple launches and orbital assembly.)

http://twitch.tv/redneckgaijin

Wednesday, 9 PM Central: KWLP is On the Air!

One last run through my "Call of Cthulhu" playlist!

Thursday KSP Livestream · 10:57pm Dec 5th, 2019

Monday turned out to be surprisingly successful. Let's see if I can repeat it in two hours.

Four Kerbals to rescue around the Mun, plus two satellite contracts and a docking contract to clear.

Begins 7 PM Central tonight:

http://twitch.tv/redneckgaijin/

Incidentally, I'll be doing these streams Mondays and Thursdays from now until the Monday after Christmas.

Thinking about more game streaming. · 4:35am Sep 9th, 2019

Specifically, tomorrow evening (Monday 9-9), beginning 7 PM, at which point I believe I will fly a CSP mission which will get at most a paragraph in the next chapter, just to finish the temperature scans that didn't happen in Mission 22. That will run from building a rocket from scratch to as many "simulated" launches as necessary (read: revert to VAB if the design proves bad) to landing a rocket-rover on Minmus.

RedneckGaijin on Twitch.tv, if you're interested.

The final episode of Mun Miner is edited and up on YouTube. · 4:04pm June 10th

Last night I finished Part 8, the final part... it's a long video (right at two hours), but that's because it was trimmed down from ELEVEN hours of streaming footage. (Sadly, the middle part of it uses backup low-res recordings because the main recording was corrupted by a computer crash. But since almost all the exciting stuff happened in THAT, I couldn't just do the montage thing with it...)

Mun Miner 7 up on YouTube, livestream Monday. · 5:06am June 8th

Here's the link:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j2Zlv56ohjs

I'm a bit less than halfway through editing the final YouTube installment, combining the last two-and-a-bit parts of the Mun Miner odyssey into one video.

Next stream is Monday 6-8, followed by Wednesday 6-10. Each stream will begin with me flying a new attempt at a spaceplane, followed by work on the crewed Duna expedition plus whatever else pops up.

I CAN DOES STREAM. · 12:34am Sep 3rd, 2019

Several of you have pointed my attention to the trailer for Kerbal Space Program 2. It was the final straw, so to speak, in getting me to buy a gaming-optimized laptop- the cheapest I could get, mind you, but it still set me back over seven hundred bucks.

And I just now tested out streaming with it... and, well, it's grainy, since 1 MB outbound is all the bandwidth I'll ever have, but the framerate is actually decent.

And the Friday stream is edited and up. · 1:20pm June 14th

About two hours edited down to one:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mdCWYTI2-gM

And making this took me TEN HOURS of editing (less meal breaks). And I'm still learning how to do this.

Anyway, enjoy me pretending to coach ponies across an obstacle course parked on a spaceplane runway.

Tonight's non-KSP game stream... · 8:55pm Oct 19th, 2019

... yes, I bought the Jackbox Party Pack 6. It was on sale on Steam.

So I'll be streaming that tonight beginning at 6 PM Central until at least 8, longer if people show up.

Anybody with a Twitch login can play. You don't need to own the game: just go to http://jackbox.tv, check the menu icon (three horizontal lines, upper left corner), log in to your Twitch account there, and then you can enter a code on the jackbox.tv page to join the game(s)!

Mun Miner Pt. 4 stream FINALLY up. · 4:00pm May 25th

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rOXe1ZDM8sM

This literally took me ALL DAY yesterday to edit (in no small part due to frequent Adobe Premiere crashes). But here it is.

Tonight we (mostly) leave off the Mun miner, because it's time for our Eve flyby (including satellite launch)!

Upcoming projects... · 5:55am Dec 11th, 2019

Those Patreon supporters who have the link to my livewriting Google doc might already know I've been working on a new project. As of tonight's session, I'm now 8,000 words into it, or about a chapter and a quarter- the introduction.

Video FINALLY posted... · 1:33am May 8th

And here 'tis.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iIzr-ALwhxA&list=PLjK6u7OCkMCegwEr92NA-ZTSGP5FkXnrU&index=3&t=0s

Considering the file I uploaded was in 1280 X 720, this turned out pretty grainy- only a bit better than the 538-wide screen I stream out live.

And, yes, the recording glitched a lot. This was the best I could do. I've fixed settings since to improve things.

Reminder: 3 PM Central time, CSP Mission 23 flies. Come watch and bring your questions if you have 'em!

Vote coming up... · 7:45pm January 29th

... on my Patreon, for what my main February game will be. I'll be posting it after tonight's XCOM stream on Twitch.

Which will likely be the last, since nobody's watching that.

I may go back to KSP- it'll be among the options, one of those options being "Career Hard Mode", another being "Do Silly Kerbal Things."

So my question is: what ideas do you have for silly things I can do in Kerbal? I can think of one immediately, but I'd like your ideas.
