Part 19: Spring 1961: Post-Vote
One mission has been appropritely downgraded as requested.
Research has excellent results this season due to that research boosting event. Both of these should easily be at max in the Fall.
New recruits have been gained, and are now in basic training. Ah, the good early days when you don't need to worry about their mood.
And lastly, a Orbital EVA Duration mission is scanned. Some lucky fellow is going to get to spend a few days circling the earth! Also unmanned docking tests, but those aren't as interesting. Now then...
ON THE OTHER SIDE...
That's unfortunate. Oh well, back under 100 MB to play with as soon as I got it. There's always next year, I suppose.
Hopefully, if all goes well with this guy, I'll have a little more to work with next time as well.
Of course, this also means no new cosmonauts this year, but with nothing for them to do for a little while, that's probably for the better anyway. If everything goes according to my incredibly
Spring 1961 Launches
Coincidentally, whoever early on said that those 'pay or minus safety events' don't work may be wrong, those bars didn't look like 80-76% bars. Also more overtly I saw from a failure I retconned out of existence that you were rolling against 66 instead of 76. It failed in a threshold you should have passed if the bug regarding the buggy Mercury failure event you got was doing what we were informed it would do (IE not affecting rolls, it was a 72 v 66 catastrophic failure), so I just did it again. All numbers in the screenshots above are accurate. Don't say I've never done anything nice for you.
I think it might be time to stop with the Vostok launches now. That was way too many borderline failures for one mission. Also apparently nobody cares much about staying up longer after you've been up there once.
