Usually, when I build things in KSP, they are big. However with the latest version, ion drives are useful, at least for small craft and so I’ve been thinking about small probes, as you’ll have seen it my last post here, TinyProbe is Tiny. This time, I decided to build a rover. It’s small enough, 1x2m and 0.6t mass. The lander needs a lot of work to be small enough to be delivered with an ion drive ship, but that’s for later.

With some tweaking and removing of mods I use least, I have finally got KSP working again, and have a rebuild of the Jool ship to orbit. It’s just a test platform at the moment, completely un-kerbaled of course. but it shows that it works and can steer. Here are a few screenshots…
And now back to the job-searching…
Words have not been my friends lately, and my posts have been short and infrequent. I suppose we all have days like this, but it’s not helpful. I have ideas that I want to share, but the words wont come, they hide behind feelings, fading into a sea of emotion. Hopefully, I can finally form some kind of sense out of it all.
