At around 19 minutes, he mods it into a nuclear pulse airplane.
Previously, previously, previously, previously, previously.
I wonder if there's a much geekier (and more SFW) version of Rule 34, that; if some aerospace engineer has thought up some crazy scheme of reaching space, then someone has made it in KSP?
Also: installing now.
Were those wings, uh, supposed to come off?
I guess it doesn't matter when you've got an exploding nuke kicking you in the ass.
At 5:20 he takes out half the planet's civilization with electromagnetic pulse.
I watched the whole thing. No idea what he was talking about but I could listen to that guy talk all day.
He's done a whole lot of KSP videos. And has an ongoing series of videos of him playing "Papers, Please", an East Bloc Cold War border crossing simulator.
Having flashbacks to an old game. Does Kerbal Space model relativistic time dilation and interstellar space too?
No relativity or notion of lightspeed. Don't think they're planning on it either; its a bit of a leap from semi-realistic interplanetary travel, and the KSP physics engine is relatively simple.
There's something comical about seeing that spacecraft putt-putting away from Earth at sixty nuclear bombs a minute. And that previous sentence sounds absolutely insane.
Eat hot gamma rays, fithp scum!
The mod was made by Winchell Chung (Nyrath) who has a site all about atomic rockets http://www.projectrho.com/public_html/rocket/
Not the same guy who did the video.
