New game mode coming to KerbalEdu
Hello again! It has been a little while since the last KerbalEdu blog post. Not to worry though, development towards the next version is going along well. In addition to bugfixes and tweaks, we have a quite big item under development: The Earth History Campaign is going to pit the Kerbals against the Americans and the Soviets in the Earths cold war era space race!
X-15 LaunchEarth History Campaign will be implemented as a new game mode alongside the current modes of Sandbox, Science, and Career. It will begin with a tutorial mission where the player will learn the controls of the game while testing the RCS systems of a rocket plane that curiously resembles the North American X-15. After that, the player is instructed on a r
