The Setting

Rules

  • The basic idea is a Real Solar System/Realism Overhaul/Realistic Progression Zero game. To discover how difficult space is, and to beat the challenge! While doing so, we will post stories of success, and failure, from our space programs.
  • No saving and loading. Though since KSP is not entirely without bugs, especially with this many mods, its allowed, but only to prevent technical problems.
  • The difficulty level is Normal (but with all game options disabled)
  • The original inspiration can be found here: https://www.reddit.com/r/KerbalSpaceProgram/comments/4djq4l/im_in_a_heated_space_race_with_some_friends_we/
