Back from the dead. Discovered this today.

Does the full version run better than the demo? I have managed to make the computer chug enough that the altimeter displayed random numbers and the stage indicator also did random numbers Its what happens when you have like 40 solid boosters lit at once and have a couple hundred ridged struts in the design to make the rocket not rip itself to pieces. But I did record 8.6g with that rocket during liftoff.

Ugh, this stupid game is addictive, just downloaded the demo yesterday and i'll be buying the full game today. After an hour of screwing around to see how many solid rocket stages i could fit on one ship before it would just explode on a launch pad i was able to put a few things into orbit with just a 2 stage rocket. By the looks of it, the full game has a TON more parts than the demo.

Same here. Played the demo and couldn't put it down for a week. Bought the game after but now I don't have the time to spend in it.


There are a lot more parts in the full game and that number keeps on climbing with KSP being so mod friendly.


Game doesn't look half bad either.

Docking with a space station is insanely fun.

Never before have I had as much enjoyment from what really boils down to watching a handful of numbers and tapping shift/ctrl with the odd awsd thrown in for effect. I can spend hours with that.

Meh, computers should be able to handle that.

Lol i figure someone is going to just make an autopilot mod that will adjust your heading and burn for manuvers.


But my goal was to not buy the game until i atleast got something into orbit. Now my new goal is to get the poor little dude back down since he's currently orbiting the planet with no fuel lol.

oh hey: KSP is ****ing sweet. I managed to build a fully functional single engine space-plane and climb to upper atmosphere, and then bring it back for proper landing at the strip... also managed to smash a lander into the outermost planet, just to see if I could make it there. Must built more space planes, they are challenging and badass!
