Landing and returning from Eve is one of the hardest missions in Kerbal Space Program. Eve has higher surface gravity and a thicker atmosphere than Kerbin, but no oxygen for jet engines.
A fast rocket-powered sled that can also fly and take quite a beating. Uses plows for low-friction movement along the ground and vertical rockets to allow for fly with a decent level of control.
A vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) aircraft built in Besiege. Uses rockets for thrust and reaction control wheels for pitch, yaw, and roll. The rockets pivot to change thrust direction.
A vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) aircraft built in Besiege. Uses rockets for thrust and reaction control wheels for pitch, yaw, and roll. Maneuverability is very good and it's very fast, but it's difficult to control, as you can see in the video below. It probably needs more fine-tuning of the reaction wheels and better key mapping.
This Besiege octocopter uses reaction control wheels for pitch, yaw, and roll. Lift is provided by eight 4-blade props. It is very stable and able to hover with only minor corrections. Maneuverability is slow compared to a quadcopter, but it's easy to fly and smooth.
There is a weight chart of Besiege blocks and items available on the Besiege Wikia
, but that site is somewhat slow (130 http requests) and has an annoying bar covering the top. I reference it myself quite often, so decided to make that same chart available here. I also added some newer items and corrected several block names.
This Besiege quadcopter uses reaction control wheels for pitch, yaw, and roll. Lift is provided by four 4-blade props. It is fairly stable and able to hover with only minor occasional corrections. Maneuverability is great, but it takes some time to get used to.
This Besiege creation uses reaction control wheels for pitch, yaw, and roll, and rockets for thrust. The outer rockets can rotate to aim back for more forward thrust.
Building a flying machine in Besiege can be very difficult. Building one that can hover and make precise movements, while still carrying weapons, is even more difficult. With version 0.04, the developers made that a bit easier with the addition of Balloons. But you still need movement and elevation control.
Armored-wheel machine build in the Besiege PC game. Grinds up enemies while withstanding archer attack. Able to move and steer very quickly. View the video of it in action on The Queen's Fodder level.
This build order is an all-in Planetary Fortress rush that wastes absolutely no resources or time. If done right, your Planetary Fortress will be finished and blasting away at your enemy's base on Scrap Station at 4:13 or Desert Waste at 4:26.
Here is a fortress house built in Terraria. It is able to house 18 NPCs and is well-protected from most hazardous events.
