Building working Macross fighters in Kerbal Space Program

Recommended Posts

So there's this guy, "Colonel Cbplayer", who's built actual working mecha fighters based on the Macross franchise using my fav game, Kerbal Space Program.  When I say "working" I mean everything, including flying, fighting, and transforming.  (Sometimes all at once!)  He's even got a video on his youtube channel of the YF19 and YF21 fighting.  Pretty insane, especially considering that the base game doesn't have weapons, or even real hinges.

I'd love to try this myself, but with the old GPU and FX processor in my system I'd be lucky if I got single-digit frame rates.  :D Not that I have the time for it anyway I guess.

This post instigated by a recent Kotaku article...

This is pretty damn awesome if I do say so. I have always liked games where you can build this sort of thing. Robotics in particular holds a strong interest for me here.

Impressive what you can achieve with sufficient programming skills and dedication. Thanks for sharing.

      Blizzard has apparently (re)released the original, 1996 version of Diablo.  Via GOG of all places.  For anyone not familiar with GOG (Good Old Games), they're a place to (legally) purchase unrestricted games.  None of the games on GOG have DRM or require "activation" or online connection to a mothership or any of that sort of nonsense to play.  You buy it, you download it, and you play it.  "You bought it, you own it" is their motto.  Anyone who's familiar with Blizzard, on the other hand, knows they don't do non-DRM.  (Diablo is, currently, the only Blizzard title on GOG.)  Ok, so 1996 was a while ago.  This is no doubt a last-gasp attempt to get some money from the title.  Still, to me it seems quite odd to see a Blizzard title on GOG..
