My beloved Kerbal Space Program has been updated to version 0.24, dubbed “First Contract” because of an enhanced Career mode:
Players will now have the opportunity to take on Contracts, manage Funds, a new in-game currency that allows players to buy rocket and plane parts, and earn Reputation for their efforts. Reputation is raised for completed contracts and bringing Kerbals back in one piece. Failing missions, or gasp, blowing them up lowers Reputation.
Squad has also posted a FAQ to address the most common questions.
