Kerbal Space Program

So... Found out about this game in this thread: http://www.idmforums.com/showthread.php?t=110380

I thought it looked cute, and I like space. So, I decided to give it a try.

I kind of love it. I've been playing it a LOT over the past few days, and I've just been having an absolute blast.

So far, I've been able to get into orbit, and I have two capsules in stationary orbit. (Though, one of them is due to a failed attempt at something else... as is another capsule I have orbiting the sun.)

Currently, I'm having a lot of trouble designing a rocket that can get as far as lunar orbit (as a precursor to attempt a moon landing.) So, I'm trying to make a lunar orbital recon station, but it takes a lot of fuel to get out of the atmosphere, and then I don't have enough to get out of planetary orbit. My idea is try and get into a very elliptical orbit around the planet, and then break orbit and head to the moon. Of course, it hasn't quite worked out thus far. I try to add more fuel, but then the ship is to heavy to get far.... etc etc...

Anyway, yeah, I've been having a lot of fun. Anyone else playing it?

What's the actual goal of the game?

Re: Kerbal Space Program

From their website, "...the players create and manage their own space program.
Build spacecraft, fly them, and try to help the Kerbals to fulfill their ultimate mission of conquering space."

So sounds like a physics engine sandbox for the most part. If there are goals, they may be obvious goals to achieve such as altitude or possibly just keeping those adorable little bastards alive.

Pretty much. It's on the Minecraft model. Game currently in alpha. No clear singular goal.
