Nice :up:

With my mun landing, the landing zone was on an incline and two of my landing legs collapsed and my craft fell over, i managed to rotate it using the flywheels so it faced outwards and took off by skidding it over the surface praying it wouldn't hit a rock. My Kerbal was grinning the entire time, the crazy crazy fuck.

Proper scary stuff :!:

That almost happened to me on Minus.
As you can see, there's a hill right behind the lander. I approached the landing site from over those hills. If I had dropped just a tiny bit faster, I'd have touched down on the slope, probably ending up rolling my lander over.

Oh by the way, I can recommend anyone playing on PC to install the Kerbal Engineer Redux mod. In the VAB, it shows you lots of additional info per part and some info per stage. Most importantly the TWR (thrust to weight ratio of the stage, which should be above 1), the delta-v per stage (and totals) and burn time per stage. Incredibly usefu when building rockets.

As you can see on the screenshot, it also shows additional in-flight info. Getting apoapsis and periapsis info in the regular view is useful (don't have to switch over to map view) and knowing how much delta-v is left in a stage is really great when planning maneuvers.

Duna was less of a success story.
Exact same rocket configuration. Landing went OK-ish, but I landed on an incline. Lander wobbling back and forth. I thought it was SAS causing this so I disabled it. Turned out SAS was actually keeping it straight up.

Not sure if 1363m/s delta-v is enough to get back home anyway.


Here it is in motion

So it took me 7.5 years, but I finally managed to land a Kerbal on Duna and get him safely back home :)

Some of the trailer is actually based on a fan made trailer for the original KSP, very nice nod to the community.

Here's an interview with the creative director on KSP2. There's some pre-alpha in-game footage there:
