    Its because they run out of air intake. Plop a bunch of intakes onto your plane and you can get higher. Or better yet just turn off your air intake jets and swap to the turbo jet that uses regular fuel. That'll get you to orbit with minimal fuel use.

    Eventually, no matter how many intakes you have you will eventually run out of air, even with the turbojet engine. To get into space and a stable orbit you will need some form of rocket and a tank with oxidizer and fuel.


    Awesome, I hope they work out the time fast-forward thing. Hopefully the server tools for people to run their own servers are well made too, because I can see myself running a KSP server.

    If I am not mistaken, the turbojet just uses regular fuel and oxidizer. You can bind keys to turn off the air intake jets and turn on the turbo jets. Space planes 101! Biggest problem I've had is getting off the runway. Once you're off everything comes up roses. You should be able to get to close to 50k on air intake if you're crazy enough.

    The turbojet uses liquid fuel and air intake, it can not run off oxidizer. You might be thinking of the AeroSpike engine?

    Yes that sounds right. It has been a while since I've loaded KSP up. Damn fun game though!

    Okay ! So I broke down and picked it up while it was on sale. I've not bought or played a game in ages.
    I was making great headway until I clicked some button that killed the tutorial. :D

    Once again, I've proven to myself I basically suck at games. lmao
