I doubt they need the extra money or the guarantee from Epic that gives them money if they dont sell enough... KSP2 will make bank.

An unexpected surprise but a welcomed one. Was that a nuclear pulse engine I spotted at around 1:41.

The best thing about that announcement trailer for me was how KSP it was with everything going wrong at least as much as things were going right.

Hold on, let me get my familiar Holger to strike up a tune for this news. 

 

 

Okay, that's good.  Now then.

 

In today's news, a Turkish convoy traveling through Syria was hit by an Airstrike.  Syria has not claimed responsibility for the strike, but has said that the convoy was transporting weapons to terrorists inside Syria.  Meanwhile, Turkey is blaming Russia, as Turkey apparently told Russia when and where the convoy would be traveling.  Although unsubstantiated, rumor is that a senior Turkish Intelligence official was among those killed in the strike. 

 

This has been a news update, accompanied by the world's smallest violin.  Thank you.

Hey Turkey, this is what it's like being Putin's "friend".  Just saying.

Niiiiice.  I never got very far in KSP, but it is really a lot of fun.

 

My main problem with KSP is that it's hard to find orbital data in game while playing the game, and a few hours into the game I have consumed half a pad of paper and can't tell which sheets with a lunar free return trajectory are for my homework and which ones are for KSP. ;)

 

That said, definitely looking forward to a KSP2.

I think it's more like "Bros before Hos".  Al Assad has been Putin's Bro for decades now, and now some NATO tramp wanna-be Dictator starts trying to come in between them?  Sorry, Turkey, but you're way below Putin's main man Al Assad on the totem pole.  You can't just expect Putin to sit there while you try to trash Al Assad's crib like that.

Wat.   How can you not have played KSP?  It's the most fun you can have with rockets.  Even model rocketry can't hold a candle to KSP.

Someone more astute than I says that at 1:42 in that KSP trailer ... that's a pusher plate for a "use nukes for propulsion" Orion drive.

The drive at 1:52 appears to be an inertial confinement fusion drive from the Daedalus Project.

Looks like an Orion drive, so yes?

That trailer is just perfect, absolute perfection.

 

A KSP sequel is basically "shut up and take my money" for me, I'll probably even pre-order it, even though I hate pre-orders.

Just the thought that it may be a possibility makes me sick. Maybe it is because I am actually sick but that is something else altogether.

Its on the same level for me as well I think... I got lots of hours out of the first KSP... but dont preorder it... never do that.

Well, I finally saw Avengers: Endgame.  That is quite the movie. :)

It had it's moments, any movie with time travel is going to be messy.  It did worry me that they don't seem to have any idea of what to do with Captain Marvel.
