There's even a parachute on this thing, amazing :D For the engine, I think it's a "Smoke weed every day" edition x)

You must have no Minmatar ship skills. That is a fail sail. For instructions on how to deploy the fail sail please click here.

Ha ha. Ha ha ha.

Isn't there some sort of internet social media thing you could use to send your buddies things like this -
Twinky Bird or something?

Paradise is like where you are right now, only much, much better.

That is one of the freakin' coolest vids I've seen in a while.

Thanks for the link, Pindleton.

This is freaking impressive. Now I just have to prevent my boys from watching that video...

Cool

Minmatar ships are actually cockpits that are then covered in an extremely adhesive material. On their maiden voyage, they are flown through a floating junkyard, and when they have emerged from the other side, what sticks is welded and duct taped together, some extra scaffolding and solar panels applied, and it is then weighed/measured and designated a ship class based on those measurements.



Since the cessation of their usefulness is imminent, may I appropriate your belongings?

Good, because it's more KSP than EVE, anyway. You can make anything fly with enough boosters. Big smile

Weird... I feel like games have made me a bit... jaded to things that should be awesome. "meh, been there, done that". Props for actually building the thing, I guess.

Truly, you have a dizzying intellect.

Mission success, 100%! Amazing that they achieved perfect rotation and a straight-up vertical flight path. Seems if even a couple of rockets were misaligned or had different thrust, it would have angled off or corkscrewed.
