      Do you enjoy flying missions or designing them more? For me, I get 75% of my enjoyment out of designing and testing the vehicles and mission concepts. When it comes to actually carrying out the whole mission, I tend to get bored. I'm impatient and not a great pilot to begin with (especially with docking) so the flying part of the game is less appealing to me than toying around in the VAB.

        Yeah I definitely enjoy accomplishing missions and doing 'space program' tasks like sending out comm relays, GEO comm sats and asteroid hunting missions. I really wish there were more interesting science parts and missions available and I also intensely dislike 'go to location X at altitude Y and speed Z and perform task A' types of missions.

        I have never done a single one of those contracts. I did lots of "carry tourists around" type contracts, a couple satellite placement missions, and all I can honestly remember are "do science here" type missions. I don't have time for all that other nonsense, and this way my space program got funded well enough for me to do fun stuff too.

        Oh yeah, I did 2 asteroid missions, but just for practice so I could get my self-sustainable space program going. I don't need money anymore, I had $0 after all my ZEUS ships launched to Jool, but now have 8 million thanks to science (and maybe 1 contract), and I don't need to launch anything, because all the ships I need are already flying around doing stuff, and fuel is unlimited

      If you go to the settings menu before loading a game, turn on 'advanced tweakables'. This will let you right click on a tank in the VAB and use an arrow button to cycle through fuel types. It turns out the default game allows you to change fuel types, you just have to enable it in settings.

      That or I have a mod installed that I long forgot about.

      heyo warpus, I kind of have two questions for you about hiking and travels:

      1) you have any opinion or recommendations for good hiking in the canadian rockies? specifically by calgary. Just googling around I've convinced myself I should squeeze in a 2.5-3 day backpack trip right in mid september (probably weekend after labor day) to catch the tail end of the "summer" season. Which just to name drop would be Lake Magog in Mount Assiniboine or yoho national park or banff national park. Jasper or mt robson would be a bit far away.

      2) I only had skimmed your travel tales and such but how was the norway trip? You've probably posted about it but I don't pay attention lol, I'm sure you'll write it up as part of your travel series too though right?

      I don't know when but I guess I've built the vague sense that sometime in the next few years I should go somewhere across the world for the views. That's probably years down the road but I guess it's a goal to try to do someday.

      For some reason I felt like responding to this.
      Now, I don't actually know, but I imagine that the majority of immigrants, including poles, are located in the Eastland, whereas you'll mainly be in the Westland and Northern Norway.
      You might come across some in Oslo, though.

      You know how your mind can race ahead and anticipate things, sometimes incorrectly? I read this by you "I think you just insulted God's creation, dude." However, my mind raced ahead and I was expecting "I think you just insulted God's junk" :lol:

      How did your computer crap out? You building a mini-super computer to replace it?

      My latest mission in KSP was a barrel of fun. There is more in the post below that one. I got back into it and have been really enjoying it. There is an update coming soon that will be a lot of fun. They redid the textures on Mun and fixed the wobble issue for big stations. I am pretty stoked. How you been?http://forums.civfanatics.com/showpost.php?p=12595389&postcount=1025
