  1. You could try making some sort of standardized keybinding mod, that keeps track of mod keybindings. Sort of like Community Resource Pack or Addon Version Checker.
  2. There's actually a stock module that does some of this, iirc. Doesn't have the power limiter though. https://kerbalspaceprogram.com/api/class_comm_net_1_1_module_relay_enabler.html
  3. The parts in BDB are balanced and scaled against the stock parts. Unfortunately, due to KSP's tiny solar system, that means that the rockets you build will be more powerful than their real world counterparts. For realistic balance, use a 2x or 3x system rescale mod, such as KScale2
  4. It's a relay. I've used it as such. It's short range though, but enough to cover, e.g., the far side of the Mun.
  5. The HG-5 is deployable, but it might be too short-range.
  6. Can you make a version of the Thor engine with a 15% narrower bell and no tankbutt for a proposed variant?
  7. Cobalt's working on some new parts on stream tonight:
  8. Most of the sizes I've used are used in mods. a lot of them scale very well to certain historical rockets. 0.9375m, 3.125m and 5.625 are all used in Bluedog Design Bureau for various rockets and stages. For example, the Delta IV, S-IV, and Ares 1 all scale to 3125m, and the Agena stages scale very well to 0.9375m.
  9. Nice! I've been waiting a long time for a good stockalike Saturn V!
  10. I think it's some interaction with the code that adds nodes to deployable ports?
  11. I've noticed that a lot of mods use extra sizes besides the stock ones. This is great, and adds a huge amount of flexibility. However, besides a few like 1.875m and 5m, a lot of them are ill-defined, and other aspects, like node size and bulkhead profiles, are even more poorly standardized, and there is often little consistency.
