So, I assume most people here have at least heard of Kerbal Space Program, since this RP is heavily inspired by it and another very similar thread on the MC forums, which I may even link because of the excellent idea.

The point of this RP is basically space exploration. Not the later, very advanced intergalactic exploration, but the humble beginnings of every space-faring race: from the first satellites in orbit to the colonization of the most distant planets in the star system.

So basically, how it works?

Well, the game works via a turn system.

Each turn, every player can do several actions: manufacture new parts, assemble spacecraft, describe it's plans to the public, trade/donate/sell parts to other players, interact with other players etc.

Rules



Now, the actual gameplay.

The currency system


Public opinion


Buildings


Parts


Launches


Finally, your application


The Cimmer-Waldikan star system (NOTE: The list posted here is only of known planets in the systems, as new planets are discovered, the list will be updated):

Seems very interesting, I'll participate, so long as other people do too.
Hopefully this won't be too hard.

Great! We only need 1 more submission for the RP to start. If you think some gameplay mechanics are a bit too complicated, feel free to tell me.

Disasterpiece, glad to have you on the RP, since now we at least have 4 players. New applications after this are still welcome of course, and if anyone wants to join, they can still do that.

Also, I am now searching for systems with life that are good enough for the RP. So far I have found 2 that have great potential, and I expect that I will finally decide on which by tomorrow morning.

IMPORTANT UPDATE:

I have finally found a star system that seems interesting. It has the right amount every planet type, and seems there are quite some locations that could be interesting to explore I have updated the OP with pictures, names and information about the celestial bodies of the solar system the RP takes place (or the 'Cimmer-Waldikan' binary system)

You should now post you're complete application, and once we have 4 apps, we can start the space race.

Here's my application.

Name of organization: N.C.E.A, standing for National Cosmos Exploration Agency (took me ages to come up with that).

Organization type: Space agency

I have a question,
will there be dice rolls for events, or will you just make up everything?

I.T.A.B.

Innovative Technology and Advanced Ballistics.

It's a private company.

I'm not good at coming up with acronyms or names.

EDIT: Changed from ITAAB to ITAB

Players can also research specific parts themselves. Just say that you are currently researching X, say what X will give you (don't go too ahead of the time period, this on an alien planet which begins with level of tech similar to humanity in the 50's) .

If the tech level of the alien planet is similiar to humanity in the '50s, that would mean we could not visit any other planet or moon or the system, possibly not even Flynn.

Disregard this, I just realized that will only be at the start of the RP and as time 'passes' that should change.

Whoa! Never expected this much replies in such a short period. Here's my own application:

Name: I.S.E.A (International Space Exploration Agency)
Organization Type: Space Agency

I actually have a dilemma there. I really don't like dice rolls that much since they can be extremely random and sometimes not even make any sense. I kind of think that making up the events would be a bit nicer, but if a lot of people disagree, we can just go for the dice-roll tactic. In other news:



The space race has begun! You can now post your turns. I will post mine a bit later.

Build: Small dipole radio antenna (20,000$)

Produce: Large solid booster(5000$) Large solid booster(5000$)

Buy: Radio transmitting unit, relayed processor, thermometer, radiometer, small silver-zinc battery (total 9500$)

In stock: None

Current funds: 60,500$

I hope I'm doing this right.
Also, some questions:

Can you launch and do other stuff in the same turn?
I'm a little confused by the fuel tanks and engines, since it's apparently impossible to advance with just a normal fuel tank and liquid engine. Care to explain?
