Ivo Shandor: ThatBillmanGuy: I have the 7 engines going at launch, but all the fuel is going into the central tank, so when I jettison the six the central has a full tank.You can do even better by cross-feeding fuel between those outer tanks and dropping them in pairs as they run out.ThatBillmanGuy: Still working on how to slow down to orbit eve and duna.Aerobraking - let the atmospheric drag do most of the work, then you only need a small burn to fix up the orbit. The trick is to know what altitude to aim for, so look it up on a wiki and/or use the quicksave+restore functions a few times until you figure it out.
ThatBillmanGuy: How do you guys get rovers to... Anywhere? I have no idea how to even attach it to my rockets, and then disengage it to drive it around.
Quantum Apostrophe: Give the money directly to people instead of the dog and pony space/defense show and you'll have the same benefits without the middleman.
Tobin_Lam: I saw a screenshot of someone that landed on an arch recently.
Mentalpatient87: And I have to chime in for Scott Manley on Youtube as well. It sounds corny, but watching his videos are the best way to learn to play the game. They're also not terrible to watch, either. I wait for new episodes of his Interstellar Series daily.

Fubini: I know it's not the point, but there's no reward or even acknowledgement for when you send a probe/Kerbal out on a Kerbol escape trajectory. Those idiots never stopped grinning never mind the fact that they would never see solid ground again, much less other Kerbals or Kerbin.
Thrag: What mod are those giant legs from?
RedPhoenix122: Quantum Apostrophe: What does "exploring the stars" even mean? It's a catch-all meaningless stock phrase trotted out regularly by people wihout a clue.To explore strange new worlds.To seek out new life and new civilizations.To boldly go where no one has gone before.It's like amateur hour here.
dready zim: If you think KSP stock is fun, try using KOS and writing your own custom mechjeb for each mission...
Cpl.D: Thrag: What mod are those giant legs from?They are handmade using stock parts, usually. In this case I used the round kethane tanks instead of the round aerodynamic frames as I usually do. A little extra kethane capacity is well worth it.
