curiosity lander + skycrane on landing orbit towards mars (apoapsis around 20km)
how do we get launch sites on other planets besides landing on them and without creating it ourselves?
@Klosskopf I think next time i’ll upload it as “unlisted” and keep it for me...that should do it ;)
@SupremeDorian I didn’t see your sandbox, and I don’t know why the website decided this sandbox is a successor to yours...¯_(ツ)_/¯
@SupremeDorian Nah I belive him he did. I thought he would "steal" others the fun of getting to cylero
@StuffBuilder I think what he is referring to is the fact that this is a successor to my Cylero Encounter sandbox, implying that you did not actually launch the rocket and get it to Cylero. I don't mind that, but i'm just saying that I think that's what he means.
@Klosskopf Yes. Let me explain how I proceeded: I did multiple quicksaves while approaching landing, but kept this sandbox as a starting point to get back to in case something on the descent trajectory had to be corrected while I was still in orbit (so before I started doing quicksaves). Another purpose of this sandbox is to allow me (and others alike) to repeat this mission starting from Cylero’s orbit, instead of starting from the launchpad (for which i can simply launch a new craft). Hope this clarifies everything ;)
@StuffBuilder It doesn't bother me, but do you know, you can quicksave with F5 and reload with F8
@Klosskopf I think you might have misunderstood the purpose of this sandbox: after getting all the way to Cylero I did a quicksave with the right landing trajectory, in order not to lose all the progress done in case of a “rapid unplanned disassembly” upon landing (which btw, happened more than once :) ).
I managed to perform a soft landing at about the 4th attempt. Really impressed with the amount of detail of your build, not to mention how well functioning all the stages are!
I hope you understand the purpose of this sandbox was mainly “personal reference” (to repeat the landing attempt now and in the future) and not to avoid all the hard work of getting your amazing rocket across the solar system (which, after all, should be what people look for in this game ;) ). In case you prefer me to remove this upload I would be happy to oblige.
Starting at cylero is cheating. Just picking the sweet fruits without doing the hard work of launching, and finding the one and only correct entry angle.
Pls comment if you managed to do a soft landing
