I finally managed to get a kerbal back alive (it was just straight up and down, nothing fancy like orbiting).Quill also did a great series. Personally I can get a kerbal into orbit but never have the fuel to bring them home.
For some unfathomable reason, tutorial 2 is actually more difficult than in the game itself. I can’t get the chute to deploy because of attitude problems in the lesson but I can do it successfully in a proper game. From now on, all tutorials are abandoned in favour of YouTube.
This is my only criticism of this game. I can’t think of anything more likely to put off a new player than an impossibly difficult tutorial (it’s not as if there’s a manual to turn to).
