Ah thought so I'll prob just raid 0 the ssd then, I just need more sata cables now.

Why raid? Get Carbonite and use your SSDs for something worthwhile.

Upgrading a few parts on my pc, new mobo since my current one can't run crossfire or sli which I eventually want to do.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813130686

replacing some fans; kept my stock ones on that came with the case they've been really quiet for a year now and recently they've been making a lot more noise than I'd like since I leave my computer on almost all the time it gets really annoying.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835214028

I'm in need of a card reader my external bugged out on me and will probably go with an internal one this time around.

It's been a year with this pc I will update it with another video again since I have nothing better to do and I want to show it off lol

Damn it! Show me how!

I did make it to the mun...but sadly I did not have enough fuel to get off, haha.



My first Kerbin on the mun! He explored and is now stranded with three other astronauts.

I've been messing around with some rocket design for a while now and think I've gotten one that could get me to the Mun and back. I think I've gotten the hang of the fuel lines and how to implement them. I'm going to try and land it on the Mun and go back to Kerbin. Then I hope to launch a rescue mission to bring them all back safely. It's quite fun.

Post some screen shots of your stuff! I want to see how radically off my rocket designs are, haha.

I'm saving up for a giant upgrade in July with the 4770K (I live near a Microcenter so it'll be the same price most pay for a 4670K) and GTX 770. I pretty much have it all planned out. I was going to go straight for SLI, but decided against spending another $400 on a second GPU. Standard 8GB RAM inside an R4. Thinking I'll go with a U14S to cool the CPU, but the upgrade potential of the H220 is tempting. Probably a 256GB Samsung 840 Pro SSD. Google Fiber (which is coming around that time) basically comes with a NAS. The new rig should be silent (U14S goes up to like 33dbs with full load).

Should be ~$1100 total. Man, I love Microcenter.

Should be fun to see the difference. I'm going up from an E8400 & GTX 260.

Dear god that thing is huge haha. I think my rocket actually looks bigger because I was so zoomed in. The actually lander is fairly small.

Interesting though. I will have to try and attempt to figure out some better configurations after seeing that. I kind of do the onion peel method where you shed tanks as things progress further. It seems to work pretty well.

Hah geez. That's insane. I'm actually playing as we speak. I've got a ton of fuel to get me into the orbit of the Mun. I think my only thing is going to be after I shed my current stage if I will have enough fuel to land and then get back to Kerbin.

If I can I shall rescue those stranded astronauts.

I'm sort of close to a microcenter also and 4770k you say?? Need to check that out; If I can find someone to buy my mobo/processor as a package I might do that and just upgrade my mobo and go for a 4770k too I was willing to do about a $500 upgrade and that will fall into range with the new processor.

edit: eh at this point I'd rather upgrade my gfx card my current being a 7770 I want to go nvidia and get a 680 but I'd have to wait a few more months to hop on that. Already have the 3770 processor isn't much of an upgrade performance wise so I'll stick with that for another year.

Yeah, there's zero point in upgrading over an Ivy or even Sandy. It makes sense for me because I'm still on a Core2 Duo. The GTX 770 is basically the GTX 680 rebranded and with a $100 price drop. I forget where the 780 lies compared to the other cards out there. 780 comes out Thursday, 770 comes out at the end of the month.

I have both. KSP is a lot more developed right now. I think Starforge could be really really good but it's still got a ways to go.

Once KSP adds a career mode I am going to die from playing it so much. It's already addicting as it is.

WOOO! At long last I landed on the mun and returned safely to my home planet of Kerbin. I could have done it with a much smaller rocket (after watching some of Scott Manley's video's it appears clear) but nonetheless I landed on the Mun, planted a flag (new feature, woot woot), and got back safe.

It was a tough go for a while but it worked out in the end. I ended up pretty much flinging my self straight into Kerbin, avoiding the need for orbiting and touching down. I was FLYING at the planet, but fortunately my parachutes held up and slowed me down and I made a nice landing.

Haha, I'm so damn happy right now.

I think my next goal is to work on getting some sort of orbital refueling station up in the sky. First goal is to get something in orbit, then learn how to dock properly which looks hard from all the videos I've seen, hah.

Yeah, I have gone back and forth on whether to splurge for that or not. @ $500...maybe. But NewEgg has them for $650+ right now. Simply too much.

if you want to land with more precision, look into aerobraking. it makes it really easy to conserve fuel while grabbing a stable orbit, and becomes really essential later in the game. with the rocket i posted earlier, i almost had enough fuel to visit moho, but i messed up my eve entry.
Oh haha. The lights and docking node were for future missions. I plan to use the the rocket I designed for future missions where docking may be relevant. Right now I'm trying to design a solid orbiter that I can attach some fuel to.

The rocket I used to land on the Mun was quite nice. I feel like I could reach some other places with it potentially but I'd like to just build a solid orbiter/lifter that can go up and drop some potential fuel stations in orbit.

I'll have to check out aerobraking.

We all need to find a game to play together. It was fun in TOR. I don't think I would have stuck with TOR nearly as long as I did if it wasn't playing with you guys.

The question is, what game? I'm pretty open to anything. RPG, FPS, RTS, etc.
