While I’m waiting for my space station to get approved so I can get the Team Frontier tank I did one of the Team Hawk missions.

The mission I did was:
- Build a rocket that can deliver 600t to orbit untouched, within the normal DLC build grid (including payload). Base game players 200t. 1.35 285t.

Here is the BP of the rocket that I used:

Here’s proof that the payload is actually 600 tons:

And here is me doing the mission:

That rocket seems slightly edited. Bp editing and part clipping are not allowed in the heavy lifting mission.

Oh I didn’t know that sorry. Is part clipping not allowed for any Team Hawk entry challenges? Or is it just this one

Just this one. If you are allowed to clip or edit this challenge is pointless, cause you can just clip infinite tanks and take infinite payload to orbit.

wow getting 600 tons to orbit without clipping is much harder than I thought. Still haven’t gotten it to work

It’s one of those don’t judge a book by it’s cover. It seems easy, but it can easily catch you out if you don’t have a lifter that meets the requirement. Building something from the ground up that has enough fuel to get there (orbit), but also not clipping any parts is quite the challenge, but a fun one. It really makes you think outside the box, (within the build grid so don’t think too far out the box) and use every little inch of space available.

I see that now. I keep getting to 1,500 m/s in orbit but just can’t get to orbit

I’ve tried going steeper, but than I don’t make it to orbit
I noticed you used Titan/Hawk engines on your second stage on your first attempt. Try replacing them with Frontier engines. You'll get more speed from them with the same quantity of fuel. Of course you also have less thrust, but this is simply compensated by a longer burn time.

When designing a launcher, I usually try to have my first stage burning until I reach 800-1000 m/s, then from there I run on efficient engines. Maybe try something like this?

Will do!

I sorta gave up on the 600 ton mission so I did the shuttle mission instead =)

I thought you gave up on that one... :p
I did but than I took my original rocket that I tried to use (the one you said was clipped in the beginning of the thread) so I just re-did the rocket and made it not clipped and added more stuff

Ok, what I said was a joke. :)
