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):

Building and part production is seperated, so you can make 3 parts per turn.

Can you launch and do other stuff in the same turn?

Of course

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?

Oops, my mistake, I am fixing the weight-propulsion ratio right now

---------------------------------------------
Also, I have changed a rule for flying in orbit and above, which makes it possible to fly in orbit even if you have more weight than PP. (take a look at the rule, the only problem currently is the fact that having 1 more PP than weight is the same as having -1)

Produce: Small rocket booster, Set of fins (total $7500)

Buy: Parachute, relayed processor, small battery (total $7000)

Remaining funds: $85500

(question: is buying and production separated? Because it seems so.)

The test for today is quite simple: can we control a rocket's trajectory more easily by using fins? We'll use the computer to control the fins using a rudimentary steering system (very early prototype - not sure if will work) and conduct a series of tests while the rocket is accelerating upward. If anything goes wrong, the parachute will automatically deploy.

Note: Rocket emptied of most fuel. Planned for estimated 30 seconds of flight. We ain't goin' to space today.

Log: Rocket launched fine. It went up nearly perfectly. At 15 seconds, executed 45 degree turn south as planned. Rocket held stable flight at 45 degrees for 6 more seconds. At 21 seconds, Rocket jerked violently west and went into a tumble.
Rocket started spiraling for 10 more seconds, then the fuel cut out and the parachute deployed. Rocket landed (relatively) unharmed.

Results: Computer recovered and logs analyzed. At 21 seconds, a bug caused an unplanned maneuver, jerking the rocket violently and as a result dislodging the computer, disconnecting it from the rest of the systems. The fins worked fine, however. Additional testing required...

We need more screws. -Dr. Nonmous

I also stickied the first post for convenience. I recommend more spoilers so it doesn't take up too much space.

Buying and production are for two different things. Production is used for non-payload items (Fuel, engines, look in the OP), you still have to pay production costs (placed in brackets) and have to wait 1 turn until it is produced (you do not get it the same turn you announce its production).

Buying is for payload items (comms, scientific stuff, it is in the OP). You obviously have to pay for the items, but unlike production, you get the parts immedietly and can use them the same turn you buy it. You can also buy things that need to be produced to get them right away, albeit for a 50% higher price. Since it is my fault that I did not mention that earlier, you do not need to pay the extra money for getting the parts you used for the launch instantly this time.

Players can also trade/donate/sell parts to each other for unlimited times and all changes happen instantly.

I think we should put meta-posts in double brackets ((like this)) to avoid confusion. Anyways, you are doing everything exactly as you should be. Detailed and in-depth posts are appreciated, since this is an RP which really depends on those kind of posts.

Thank you. I am going to go and put the different categories into spoilers, fix any typos and update some of the descriptions.

On a side note, you have gotten 1 research points towards getting the 'Set of fins Mk2' (when researching deeper into some parts, you will get new 'marks', these give better effects than the last mark, and are more expensive). Currently the set of fins decreases required generated PP to leave the atmosphere of planets with one by 10%. Upon getting the set of fins mk2, the required PP is reduced by 15%.

Current progress on 'set of fins mk2': 1/3.

Update coming later today

UPDATE:


==========
Effects:
All parts are 20% less expensive to buy (production cost is still the same), due to a major manufacturer reopening it's biggest wing of production
==========

Build: Small radio dipole antenna

Current Buildings: Public launchpad

Produce: None (I will buy the things I want to produce this turn, anyone can do that if they want to, but for a 50% higher price, or only 30% for the next 3 turns (because of a recent event))

Buy: 2x Solid rocket boosters (2*2500 + 2*900 = 7000$ (it is really 6800$, but I want to keep the numbers round))

In stock: Liquid fuel engine, liquid fuel tank, solid rocket booster, Radio transmitting unit, Relayed processor, Small silver-zinc battery, Small black-white camera, Small military parachute

Launching: Limit Breaker I

Goal: Take pictures of Haelga from the stratosphere or above

Parts: 3x Solid rocket boosters, liquid fuel engine, liquid fuel tank, Radio transmitting unit, Relayed processor, Small silver-zinc battery, Small black-white camera, Small military parachute

Flight:

Phase 1 (launch until entering sub-orbit)

3x Solid Rocket Boosters (Total 3 PP)
Liquid fuel engine (Total 4 PP)

7 PP - 3 W = 4 GPP

Phase 2 (ship leaves atmosphere, takes pictures)

Small black-white camera: Take picture

Phase 3 (atmospheric re-entry, time to deploy parachute and recover the craft):

Small military parachute: Deploy

Log: Phase 1 and Phase 2 pass without any major complications, Phase 3 represented a problem as the small military parachute could not slow down the craft properly. The craft fell into an ocean, and seemed mostly intact upon recovery. However, it was almost instantly noticed that a structural joint between the payload and rest of the craft broke and most of the craft was barely dangling from the payload. Time of damage unknown.

Achievements

This is something I have been thinking about to actually reward players for their discoveries and achievements. Every time your mission does something very important for the first time in the RP, you get an achievement for that. Achievements can also be gotten for being profitable, discovering exoplanets, etc.

First craft to leave atmosphere

I will post some pictures later

Build: Public launchpad (15,000$)

Produce: Liquid fuel tank + Liquid fuel engine (12,000$)

Buy: Small military parachute (1000$)

Launching: Tartaros Space Probe I

Goal: Investigate conditions in vacuum in preparation for future manned spacecraft.

Parts: 2x Large solid fuel boosters, radio transmitting unit, relayed processor, thermometer, radiometer, small silver-zinc battery, small military parachute.

Flight: 2x2 PP from 2x Large solid boosters. Craft reaches sub-orbit. Thermometer and radiometer activated.
Craft re-enters. Small military parachute deployed.

Log: A large crowd gathered near the launchpad, and the launch went as expected. Once the craft reached space, the crew at the small dipole antenna only barely managed to contact the craft. The radio transmitting unit was slightly damaged by the launch, though it did manage to send the data back to the ground.

After about 15 minutes in space, the craft re-entered.
The radio transmitter completely broke off the ship and was disintegrated. Luckily, the parachute was deployed before that, the other parts survived the re-entry and were recovered 32 km from the planned landing site.

The info the thermometer and radiometer had gathered was kept tightly secret and details of the ship were not released to the public.

Current funds: 57,000$

((I would love for this to continue, but there is a lack of interest right now. I will try and revive it sooner or later, but I will change the rules. I think that people left so early is mainly because of the sheer amount of rules which made the whole thing feel like a very rigorous RTS))
