comment How can I calculate the right number/types of parachutes for my craft?
I use Nova Punch which has parts that can take 160 m/s impact. Using engines under the tanks, I've landed at 100+m/s without damage (that's near terminal velocity).

comment How can I calculate the right number/types of parachutes for my craft?
@Iszi It looks like the impact stresses spread out from the initial impact component - girder takes 80, fuel tank takes 20. This can be mitigated by using multiple parts (girders strung together) or MOAR STRUTS!

comment How much money do you make for returning craft safely to Kerbin?
If you like I can delete the question and re ask the exact same question, to follow these artbitary rules. But isn't the purpose of the rules to get quality content?

comment What can be grabbed with the Advanced Grabbing Unit?
I can confirm that the Klaw can grab space debris like decoupled stages or entire ships. I haven't found anything that it can't grab other than what's listed in this answer.

comment How to find level 60 items with a level 70 character?
@PeterL I'm pretty sure it does. This is also a great way to get through rifts really fast. Start it with a level 1 character.

comment How to prevent cargo from swinging inside fairings?
I use KW and that is the easiest way. You could zoom in through the fairings and try to do it that way, good luck. Removing the nose cone is for sure the easiest. The only other way is quantum struts.

comment Can you land an asteroid?
I did it. But I wanted it in the KSC so I made a "tow truck" to pull it the last couple of kms. Something glitched and it flew off at 300,000 m/s escaping atmosphere, Kerbin and Kerbol, never to be seen again.

comment Is there a benefit to deactivating a MegaShield after an outpost has been cleared?
@Stizzle84 After an outpost has been cleared, why can you still turn the shields on and off? Should I leave them on or off?

comment How can I kill Kerbals? From what drop height can they not survive?
50 meters is 15 floors... I don't think you'd find many humans that could survive that...

comment How do I bring back lost Kerbals?
@FEichinger Thanks, I get Kerbals, Kermans, Kerbin and Kerbol confused sometimes. Can't they add K to more words to make it easier to understand? "I can Kruse my Kerbals to the Koon on a Krocket", "K minus 10 seconds", "Krouston, we have a Kroblem"

@3ventic I did this and it worked but it's not the most correct answer. But I'll give you a vote up.

Any idea how long it takes for them to respawn?

comment How do I determine a landing position in Kerbal Space Program?
I'm going to mark this as correct because MechJeb is better than me. @fbueckert makes a good point, but I don't think I could land 4-5 offworld space port parts on top of each other like MechJeb can. So I use MechJeb to expand the game rather than limit my options.

@fbueckert If you leave that as an answer, I'll mark it as correct

comment How are Far Cry 3 and Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon related
The next question would be "Is it worth getting FC3:BD after playing FC3 through 3 times?". But that wouldn't be allowed as a question, so I leave it as a comment...

comment Where are the key wardens and where are my keys to create a Hellfire Ring?
Another helpful hint is to get 3 sets of all 3 keys. That will guarantee that you'll unlock all 3 realms. Otherwise, you make get the same organ twice...

From memory, I think it was "E" or interact if you're on a console...

comment Can I play Mass Effect 2 with 0 Paragon points?
@Paralytic 20 hours of gameplay and a third of the way through the franchise... I would call that a streak.
