  3. Lithobrake Exploration Technologies A parts pack that is focused on exploring other worlds, and returning safely to Kerbin. The emphasis is on surface exploration, particularly with large rockets and large landers. IMPORTANT NOTES: This is still considered a "work in progress" and "wide alpha", meaning that ship-breaking changes can still happen. I'll try to minimize this, of course. The highest likelihood of this happening is in removing or redesigning parts, in a way that makes your vehicle either not function as originally planned, or the vehicle can be "deleted" if the part is missing or unloadable. The pods don't currently have custom IVAs. This will come later. This pack includes: (as of 0.2) 3-Man Lander Can 4-Man Capsule Several sets of large landing legs (the "medium" set will handle Mainsails, and the "large" works with Mammoths). Large radial and stackable parachutes Long static ladders Very long deployable ladders Service bays / rover garages. Part of the NecroBones suite of mods, that work nicely together: Modular Rocket Systems (stock-alike parts pack, NASA-like alternatives, and filling the gaps) SpaceY Heavy Lifters Parts Pack (stock-balanced large rocket parts, 5m parts, large SRBs) Color Coded Canisters (replacement models/textures for stock fuel tanks: prettier, cleaner, and diameter color-coding for the tank end-caps) Fuel Tanks Plus (collection of large stock-like tanks with Color Coded Canister style) ColorFuel Lines (color-selctable fuel lines) Lithobrake Exploration Technologies (lander parts, large chutes/legs/ladders/etc) Images: --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Download From: SpaceDock -or- --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Creative Commons 4.0 Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike CC BY-NC-SA --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Change History: 0.4 (2016-10-12) - KSP 1.2 Update. - Updated categories for many parts. - Added KSP 1.2 sound effects and additional variables for landing legs. - Added transmitter modules to command pods. 0.3.6 (2016-07-12) - Tweaks. - Added an optional experimental config for RealChute integration (for the radial chute only). - To enable, rename "GameData/LETech/Patches/LETech_RealChute.txt" to have "cfg" instead of "txt". - Removed references to "drogue" in the parachute tags. - Added parachute deployment sound effects, as per KSP 1.1.3. 0.3.5 (2016-04-22) - Transparency fix. - Fixed the "always transparent" problem for bays in the VAB. - Adjusted the "expanded" 2.5m bay to use transparency only on the doors. 0.3.4 (2016-04-17) - Tweaks. - Tweaked leg settings. - Moved leg wheel colliders to allow for more accurate aerodynamic occlusion. - Legs reduced in mass quite a bit. 0.3.3 (2016-04-01) - KSP 1.1 Hotfix - Landing leg suspension systems working again.

  6. Thanks to @FullAuto556 for making this awesome movie using BDB! LAUNCHER GALLERY (Thanks to @Drakenex for the screenshot gallery and the historical descriptions!) Changelog: What is this mod? Variety is the spice of life. BDB doesn't necessarily add new gameplay hooks, new systems to the game, new features. What it does add, are parts. Lots of parts. The mod adds a tremendous number of parts, including launchers, spacecraft parts, and probe parts, all in a stockalike style. The focus lies primarily on the US space program up through the Apollo program, but there are several unrelated parts. The parts are not perfect replicas, but rather take inspiration directly from existing designs. Care has been taken to research and include parts for projects that were proposed but never happened, to increase the possibilities available to the player. Parts are made in a lego frame of mind, and I greatly encourage you to mix and match parts to see what cool things you come up with. The mod is not recommended for new players, as the mod adds a good deal of clutter to the VAB lists. The mod also adds new standard sizes (such a 0.9375m, 1.5m and 1.875m diameter) of parts in order to more accurately scale to KSP. Extreme care has been taken to leave the mod with as small a footprint as possible while keeping the graphical fidelity to acceptable levels. The textures are not HD, however they are intended to look as good if not better than stock textures. For example, the entire Titan rocket series (39 parts total) is made using 1x 1024 texture sheet and 5x 512 texture sheets (1 per fuel tank series, 1 for SRBs and 1 for Transtage). Compared to stock, which generally uses a 1024 texture for a single part, the savings are enormous. For those familiar with KSP mods, BDB can be considered a stockalike equivalent of FASA, and a US counterpart to Tantares' soviet rockets. Well, what do I get? Currently, the mod includes 300 parts you can use to make: Mercury (Courtesy of Bloeting Aerospace Corp) Gemini (Courtesy of Trails Manufacturing Co.) Apollo Block II, III, III+, and V CSM Vanguard rocket with Able and Ablestar upper stages Scout rocket Redstone rocket Juno II, IV rockets Diamant rocket (All variants) Thor-Delta rocket (Almost all variants can be made) Delta 2 rocket (Including upper stage, GEM SRBs) Atlas rocket (Can make pretty much everything up to Atlas 2AS) Agena upper stage (All variants) Vega (old Kerolox upper stage for Atlas) Centaur D, G, G', T upper stages Atlas V rocket (Pretty much just the CCB for now) Titan 1, 2, 3, 4 rockets, with SRMs and Transtage (No IUS yet!) Saturn (Can make C1, 1B, V, and 1C right now, along with some extra parts for more options) New probe cores New antennas and dishes New science experiments I would like to see X, Y, and Z in game! Awesome! I love having people interested in the mod's development. First, check the roadmap to make sure I haven't already planned on making it. If it's on there, it will get done - eventually. Some day. Hopefully. If not, feel free to ask on the thread. Preferably with pictures, or something. Fair warning - I don't have much of an interest in modern rockets, so don't expect to see things like a Falcon 9 or some such in this mod. I also don't plan on covering anything Soviet - Tantares already does a fine job of representing those in a stockalike style. Right now I'm also sort of swamped, with content planned for upwards of the next year! However, if you have something relevant to what I'm currently working on (ie you can't have X rocket without Y part for it) please speak up - I like to be complete! There's something wrong with the CKAN configs for BDB! Myself and the other authors do not maintain the CKAN configs for this mod. @linuxgurugamer has graciously volunteered (I think) to look into any issues pertaining to this mod on CKAN.

  9. NOTE: KSP 1.2 (either full release or latest pre-release, or 1.2.X) is required for SpaceY 1.13.2 or later. SpaceY Heavy-Lifter Parts Pack Required Dependencies: ModuleManager Cooperates with other mods: TweakScale FAR / NEAR AVC (Add-on Version Checker) Engine Ignitor Community Tech Tree HotRockets! DefaultActionGroups (To enable automatic toggling of SAS light on radial reaction wheels) as of version 1.10 IndicatorLights Part of the NecroBones suite of mods, that work nicely together: Modular Rocket Systems (stock-alike parts pack, NASA-like alternatives, and filling the gaps) SpaceY Heavy Lifters Parts Pack (stock-balanced large rocket parts, 5m parts, large SRBs) Color Coded Canisters (replacement models/textures for stock fuel tanks: prettier, cleaner, and diameter color-coding for the tank end-caps) Fuel Tanks Plus (collection of large stock-like tanks with Color Coded Canister style) ColorFuel Lines (color-selctable fuel lines) Lithobrake Exploration Technologies (lander parts, large chutes/legs/ladders/etc) Do you want more parts!?

Contains several unusual or unique features, including some "firsts": Engines with multiple sized fairings, or with conical fairings. Engine clusters with mode-switching for activating/deactivating nozzle groups. Rocket-assisted radial decouplers. Stack size adapters with multiple target diameters (adaptive shrouds). Docking ports with guide-lights. Fuel tanks with automatic shrouds. Thrust plates and adapters with fairings. "Petal" cargo bay. Author: NecroBones Special Thanks: NBZ, for lots of input, ideas, part names, and art feedback. Akira_R & 4nxs, for their HotRockets configuration work to add variation between vacuum/atmo effects. And many others for bug reports and feedback! --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- SpaceY Lifters is a parts pack that is intended to extend the stock line-up of parts for lifting heavy payloads to orbit, by providing a similar update to the NASA/ARM pack from 0.23.5, in the next size up. It provides a range of 5m fuel tanks and engines, a fueled 3.75m nose-cone, both "stack" and "radial" decouplers, a fueled size adapter, large docking ports, adaptive size adapters, upper-stage thrust plates with shrouds, and a range of powerful SRBs. The name is a play on "SpaceX" in the real world, but also has the amusing double connotations of being "spacey", and also "Space, why?" -- Because it's there! All of the models and textures were made 100% from scratch, using Blender, Photoshop, and Unity. Design Goals: Maintain a "pretty", but still mostly stock-alike appearance. While KW goes a long way toward realism, we want to have a smaller pack that blends nicely with stock, and other stock-alike packs. While extending the stock game, try to maintain a gameplay balance with stock. Stay memory efficient. Similar parts attempt to share the same textures (currently ALL fuel tanks use just one texture). And do so while adding: Another layer of large rocketry, beyond the 3.75m ARM/NASA update that was added in KSP 0.23.5. Specifically, 5m parts. Large SRB options with high thrust and shorter burn times than the NASA/ARM SRB. Large rocketry utilities-- Big radial decouplers with thrusters built in, larger sepratron, big docking ports, etc. Possible future plans? Bigger engine/tank parts? (7.5m for instance) More SRB types? LFBs? (Liquid Fuel Boosters) More decoupler types? More multi-way adapter pieces? --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Image Gallery: (Note that the stats, appearances, and descriptions of the parts shown below are subject to change, or may be out of date) --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Parts Inventory: (as of version 0.17, 2015-06-18) Do you want more parts!? If you do, you can also install SpaceY Expanded with even more parts, and 7.5m diameter! --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Installation Instructions: 1. If upgrading from a previous copy, it's recommended to delete the old "SpaceY-Lifters" folder first. 2. Backup your "saves" folder! While not required for installing mods, it's a good idea anyway. If any parts you have already used (including stock parts) fail to load, you'll have ships getting deleted! 3. Download and open the ZIP file. 4. Copy the "SpaceY-Lifters" folder into your "GameData" folder. 5. If upgrading, check your designs in the VAB/SPH. If attachment nodes have changed, you may need to reposition parts. Troubleshooting: Problem: Fuel tanks or SRBs flash different colors, with glitchy "z-fighting": Usually it boils down to one of a few different things. Now that I've seen probably most of them, I can give you a good list: 1. Everything is installed correctly, but ModuleManager's cache hasn't noticed the changes yet. Fix: This is a great one to try first. Delete the file called "ModuleManager.ConfigCache" in GameData. ModuleManager recreates it on the next KSP start. 2. ModuleManager isn't installed. Fix: Install it. 3. This mod is installed incorrectly, or you've deleted the color-change ModuleManager configs. Fix: Reinstall the mod correctly, and in its entirety. The MM config files include rules for what to do when color-changing isn't available, so please don't delete those. 4. Firespitter and/or InterstellarFuelSwitch are installed, but not functioning. Fix: The most likely cause is that the version of FS or IFS doesn't work with your version of KSP (for instance, you upgraded to KSP 1.1, and the mod is meant for 1.0.5 or earlier), or your copy is only partially installed. Delete it, and install the latest version of it. 5. ModuleManager thinks color-changing is available via Firespitter or InterstellarFuelSwitch, but neither is installed. Fix: This is a little trickier to pinpoint. Either another mod has bad rules in it (for instance using "FOR[Firespitter]" instead of "NEEDS[Firespitter]") and is therefore tricking ModuleManager, or one of these two mods is only partially installed. That could happen if you removed them via CKAN but the directories still exist, which ModuleManager will see as having them installed. To fix, either make sure both of those mods are completely uninstalled, or install one (or both) of them. Only the DLL from one of them is needed, you don't need the entire mod. But it needs to be running if ModuleManager thinks its there. 6. It's possible that another mod may be confused that changes how VAB/SPH tweakables or engine shrouds work. This is an odd case, but not impossible. When you don't have Firespitter or InterstellarFuelSwitch installed, the alternate paint jobs are disabled by turning them into "engine shrouds" that correspond to an attachment node that is a kilometer outside the VAB. If another mod interferes with this, such as defaulting all shrouds to "on" even when detached, then you might also see z-fighting. Sadly, the solution might be to simply not use the mods together. Problem: Textures are missing and you're seeing a lot magenta (purple/pink): 1. Files may be missing, or not where the mod is expecting to find them. Fix: Make sure you've installed the mod correctly, in its entirety, and in the right location. Don't rename folders. You can try completely deleting the mod and reinstalling (which is the best way to update the mod anyway). Also make sure the mod's dependencies are installed (SpaceY Expanded requires SpaceY Lifters, for instance). 2. ActiveTextureManagement is goofing it up. Fix: Either remove ATM, or try deleting ATM's cache. ATM frequently has cache issues that cause problems for texture reassignment across folder boundaries. ATM doesn't help as much as it used to, now that stock KSP and most mods use DDS texture format. We've included configs to try to stop ATM from processing this mod's folder, but that may not be working either. Problem: Engine exhaust plumes are missing: Cause: ModuleManager thinks that HotRockets is installed, but it actually isn't. Fix 1: Install HotRockets so that it's a non-issue. Fix 2: Go into the SpaceY folder(s) and delete "SpaceY_HotRockets.cfg". This will keep it from trying to use the HotRockets plumes. Fix 3: Figure out which other mod is causing the confusion, and remove it. We still don't know which mods are causing this, but it's probably due to someone using a "FOR" statement in their MM config instead of "NEEDS". --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Download From: SpaceDock -or- download page -or- --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Creative Commons 4.0 Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike CC BY-NC-SA --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Change History: 1.16 (2017-01-30) - SRB Update. - Corrected smoke emitter location on the 3.75m SRB, 21m length. - Added a 30m long 3.75m SRB. - Added a 29m long 2.5m SRB. 1.15.1 (2017-01-03) - Compatibility Update. - Added "NEEDS" conditionals for ConnectedLivingSpace and EngineIgnitor patches, to clean up log spam. - EngineIgnitor patches moved to their own file in the patches folder. - Added "NEEDS" conditionals for Engineering Tech Tree compatibility. 1.15 (2016-10-21) - Update. - Added new RCS sounds/effects. - Added a linear RCS thruster. - Updated OMS engines to use new RCS sounds and effects. - Added two adapters that can be used with the Rose/Rosette adapter center slots. - Updated custom part category with recent additions from here and SpaceY Expanded. - Added some missing search tags on thrust plates / adapters. 1.14 (2016-10-12) - More KSP 1.2 Compatibility & Fixes. - Landing legs should now work in the Landing Gear action group automatically again. - 5m Fairing base null reference exception corrected, and is available again. - Names adjusted on some thrust plates / adapters. - Version changed to 1.14 to make it more clear this is a significant 1.2 update. 1.13.2 (2016-10-10) - Basic KSP 1.2 Compatibility. - Added KSP 1.2 and KerbNet modules to probe cores. - Landing leg suspension disabled until a 1.2 solution can be found. - Using ModuleAnimateGeneric for the time being, so legs can still be used. - Will need an Action Group, or the Default Action Groups mod, for best results. - Categories adjusted for several parts, corresponding to 1.2 changes. 1.13.1 (2016-08-01) - Tweaks. - Icon-only shroud added to fairing base, for easy identification in menu. - 5m conical bay added to custom parts tab. - Added MM "NEEDS" conditionals to RemoteTech modules in probe cores, and moved to separate patch file. - Deadly Reentry patch file renamed to sort properly in the folder. - Added a compatibility exclusion for HPTechTree. 1.13 (2016-06-08) - Update. - Adapters and Thrust Plates marked as passable for Connected Living Space so that they can be used for station construction, and docking ports, etc. - Added 5m/3.75m conical payload bay. - Adjusted the "hide if empty" rules for the tech nodes. 1.12.9 (2016-05-31) - Hotfix. - Massive Rocketry/Structure tech nodes are now set to be hidden if empty. - Fixed a harmless mistake in the MM patches, as part of its self cleanup. 1.12.8 (2016-05-31) - Tweaks. - Adjusted some nickname tags on engines. - Minor tech tree and config changes in MM patches.

  10. PicoPort is a small parts mod pack which contains a set of very small Docking Ports intended for use with tiny probes. Presently, this mod comprises four parts: Coupling: 1. PicoPortBasic - This is an orientation specific, ungendered docking port. It will mate with other PicoPortBasics in only 4 positons (90 degree rotations). This is useful if you wish to use balanced RCS from porbes connecting to the mother vessel. 2. PicoPortPlus - This is an ungendered docking port, similar to Clamp-o-Tron. 3. PicoPortM -This is a Male PicoPort, non-orientation specific and will only dock with the femal counterpart. 4. PicoPortF - This is a Female PicoPort, non-orientation specific and will only dock with the male counterpart. DOWNLOAD: Primary: Github Secondary: SpaceDock download and copy the SHED folder directly into the your KSP GameData folder. Licensing: The contents of this mod are distributed a CC-BY-NC-SA International License (please refer to the license file on github for further details). Highly Recommended Supporting Mods: PicoPort is a stand-alone parts mod and does not have any other mod dependencies, that said, it has been designed around the utilisation of supporting mods and it is highly recommended that you add them to your collection (they are very useful in their own right).

Also thanks to him and @linuxgurugamer for helping with testing and development ideas. Change Log: Feedback and suggestion: Always welcome, if you have any ideas which you might like to see implemented let me know and i'll see what can be done!
  11. Download via the USI Catalog Page Introducing Freight Transportation Technologies! A series of modular parts for all of your hauling, mining, and exploration needs! Phase 1 introduces the 'Honeybadger' freighter - a 3.75m form factor craft ideal for mining operations or light hauling/tug duties.

  12. ===> main download. <=== ===> SpaceDock mirror. <=== ===> Available in CKAN. <=== Dev thread here Same pics on Curse. Video review by Kottabos: Video review by GrunfWorks (fresher one): Other mods support: ModuleManager IS ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL for mods support. Connected Living Space is supported where it matters. F.A.R. is supported. (Hopefully...) JSI Advanced Transparent Pods Modular Fuel Tanks and Real Fuels are supported. RealFuels is recommended. TweakScale is supported and highly recommended. RasterPropMonitor RemoteTech is supported and recommended. Is supported by other mods: ModuleSolarTracking - should automatically make SSP right-click menus less confusing. SETI Techtree and Balance mods Parts are mostly self-explaining - either in Imgur album or in game. But here is what you're generally getting: Deployable skycrane in two sizes. Easy to use modular parachute system. Double-axis solar panels. Multistage Lander tank systems. Tiny electric impeller for atmospheric drones. Family of rovers - both manned and unmanned. Also a fix for stock rover body orientation. Mk2 spaceplane extension parts - mostly butts and some noses. Primitive unmanned soil sampler. Real worls CubeSat double-dipole antenna replica. 2.5m hubs. Aerodynamic blisters. Opening heatshield, allowing protection for your bottom docking port. Small tweakable weight to finely balance your tiny probes. Chengelog: Troubleshooting: It's GNU GPL 3.0 until I find something more CopyLeft-ish. But I'm too lazy to regularly update source files (Blender and Unity in my case), as GPL demands. And I'm constantly fiddling with them. So if you want anything - just ask and I'll send you the latest version. Comments, bug reports and ideas for further development are welcome.

the game can only save the state of one animation at a time, and the docking ports need several animations to handle the various parachute deployment stages and the lights.

  15. DESCRIPTION: This mod adds parts made of rusty metal. The goal of this mod is to let you build rockets/spaceplanes that have completely different look than stock parts, and most of the other mods. If you like aestetics of Firefly, Red Dwarf, Fallout, Mad Max, you might like this mod. Most of the parts have stats comparable to similar stock parts. Some are maybe slightly OP. So far, there are more than 100 parts from all categories. Mod dependencies: none! SCREENSHOTS: Links to IMGUR albums: Instalation: 1. extract to GameData folder 2. have fun!

  16. So, i'm trying to build a craft and this problem arises every so often; I am wondering how to change the focal point of mirrored parts. Here's a shot because the few threads where I think this is the problem people are asking about, there is always a confusion on the interpretation of the question. The current mirrored rotation of these lights means they rotate with the small yellow arrows and "meet" on the yellow axis/arrow. I want the lights to meet and rotate outward from the blue arrow so that, if the blue arrow (by the VAB door) is 12 o' clock at this angle, the lights are sitting at like 2 & 10 (as opposed to 2 & 4, right now). Essentially, rotating the mirror focal point 90 degrees. Let this jankily drawn representation be the standard by which all understand this dilemma and hopefully find their answer.
  17. Thank you for checking out my Dev Thread. I will be releasing updates of my progress into modding for KSP. I am familiar with 3D modeling and texturing (Although I am very rusty), but not so with Unity so I appreciate any and all help. I am currently finishing up my first model to learn KSP. Here is the current mission plan: This is the main part of the mod. This is a stock-alike (ish) probe expansion pack inspired by real missions from the mid-1960s to now. I will start with basic probe cores, and utility parts and the move on to animated science parts and solar panels. Expect parts inspired by (but no realistic replicas of) Voyager, Galileo, Pioneer 10, Venera, Hubble, Kepler, New Horizons, Juno, And more!

  19. Shadow Space Technologies Unlimited - Labs Division This is the public discussion thread for ongoing development of SSTU parts and plugin code. Downloads: The latest test versions may be found at: And are also available on Github: (Github will always be more up-to-date than curse, as they are auto-published there; I have to manually update Curse; so please check the GitHub link if you are looking for the latest versions) Please keep in mind that these are all testing releases. Things may break between releases. There will be bugs. Many things are unfinished and/or unoptimized. The test versions are for ironing out bugs in new features and for testing out prototype parts before they are finished; as such they will always have bugs, often severe, and there will often be unfinished parts (no textures, missing features, etc). Please only use these versions if you wish to contribute to testing and are comfortable with the state of the releases. Additional Parts / configs (by @JoseEduardo) Wiki (WIP): Contribution: IVA Modeling: SSTU could greatly use someone with interest and experience in modeling IVAs. If you think you are that person, please contact Shadowmage through PM to work out the details. Testing: If you would like to contribute to pre-release testing (and get to try things out in their pre-release state), please follow the link above; the most recent test version will be at the top. Please submit issue reports for any problems you encounter via the GitHub issues tracker: (If you do not report the issue there, it will not be resolved; issues posted in the thread or through PMs will be forgotten about and likely never fixed; so please, do the organized thing and use the bug-tracker). Configs/Patches: I welcome pull requests and contributions for adding patches for mod compatibility, adding new part configs, or fixing issues in existing part configs. Documentation: One very major part of the mod that could greatly benefit from public contributions is the Wiki: While this is the 'dev version' wiki, I will be using it to form the basis of the public release wiki; so any/all information and details that can be filled in now will be transferred over to the public release repository and wiki when it is created. Feedback, suggestions, comments, etc: Please feel free to post feedback, suggestions, questions, etc regarding development releases and/or any posted previews. Even if you are not on the testing team, I still value your feedback and suggestions. Please use the issue tracker for any 'official' feature requests; it may be found at: Bug Reports: Please submit issue reports for any problems you encounter via the GitHub issues tracker: No other method for submitting bugs will be supported; posts on the forum or through PM will be forgotten about before I can ever get to them. Opening up a ticket ensures that your report does not get lost in the forum or forgotten about. No ticket = no fix. Enough with the disclaimers, and onto the parts! The Parts: The goal of SSTU is to provide low-part count, CPU-efficient parts for common uses. To this end many of the parts are designed with additional integrated functionality beyond the base functions, for instance integrating RCS ports and engine(s) into a fully fledged service module. I have tried to maintain a stock-compatible appearance, though as I am not an artist or modeler (at least not by training/profession), how well this has worked out is subject to opinion. Master list of parts; current, planned, the whole lot: Lander Core A series of parts specially crafted to enable low-part-count non-atmospheric lander designs for use in the stock Kerbol system. Ship Core: Engines A set of engines in many varieties, including pre-built engine clusters. Many more engines, mounting options, and cluster designs will be added over time. Ship Core: Series A A set of parts modeled after the Apollo CSM stack. Includes two command modules (one with integrated heatshield and parachutes), launch abort system, and Apollo-inspired service module. Ship Core: General A line of generic / utility parts. Fairings, RCS, Science experiments, and procedural decouplers of various types. Ship Core: Series B A series of parts heavily inspired by and based on current NASA - SLS project. Includes representations of SLS upper stack initial configuration, and lifter parts designed in the vein of the lower/core portions. The upper stack is designed to allow for a low-part-count manned orbiter setup, while the lower-stack parts are intended for super-heavy-lift capabilities. Command module and upper-stack are 3.75m, while the lower-stack lifter parts are 5m. Includes a customizable fuel tank setup as well as multiple engine clusters and heavy lift SRBs. Craft Files None currently available, will start becoming available when the mod has reached a stable state (not for the foreseeable future). Additional Addon Compatibility and Integration RealPlume -- Optional but highly recommended. SSTU includes a set of patches for RealPlume for all engines as well as most other engine-enabled parts. More will be added over time. Stock effects are also included, but options and configuration for those are much more limited. If you want pretty-looking exhaust effects, get RealPlume. MechJeb -- If MechJeb2 is installed, Command Pods (and some service modules) include a built-in MJ module. The tech-unlocks for these are based on the default MJ tech-settings. Kerbal Joint Reinforcement -- Fully supported and highly recommended if you intend on using 3.75m+ parts. Some parts will not function...nicely... without KJR installed due to stock joint mechanics (radial decouplers). If you have wobbly rockets or parts, get KJR. KNOWN ISSUE: KJR is known to cause unstable orbits; more unstable the lower the gravity/orbital velocity is. USI-LS and TAC-LS -- Patches for both are included, and will be enabled when the requisite mods are installed. These patches add a few days worth of life-support to each of the pods and some of the service modules. ConnectedLivingSpace - A simple CLS patch is included to add CLS passability to all SSTU crewed parts. FAR - Currently incompatible, but awaiting a fix that should restore compatibility. RO/RSS - Should be mostly functional through the patches that are included in RO. Not all things are working. I do not offer support for RO, so please direct any RO questions to the Realism Overhaul thread. Introductory video by MrMeeb Known Issues IVAs - Many are incomplete. WIP. They'll be finished 'eventually'. Textures - Many unfinished textures.

  20. Latest Update removes 88's SM Armory 122 beta The original BDA expansion contains 100 items to enhance your military might from 7.7mm WW1 machine guns to modern CIWS systems , WW2 field guns to 152mmAGS turrets there's a weapon for every eventuality With SMA now containing 100 parts it's time to go for V1 and full release, Boomsticks as was will be frozen at v1.1.3 and no further updates will be done. SM Armory is also to my mind complete and as such very little will be added, however my intention is to make extra packs to add on if the user wishes, rather than forcing and increasingly large download This version includes the impossibles, things that were thought impossible to create with BDA. These turrets ALL designed for CIWS use feature rapid fire cannons and AA missile rails. Also as usual are loads of normal turrets some based on fantasy , some on reality, but wherever the inspiration came from I've attempted to make them relevant to the Kerbal world. With notable and deliberate exceptions everything here is appropriately powered for Kerbal Kombat. I've also spent a good amount of time making sure that they work with SM Marine and The Large Boat Parts as i find that's the situation in which most of these will be used Some of the latest additions Current Items that made release, constantly subject to testing and response Notes DO NOT INSTALL BOTH THIS AND BOOMSTICKS On installation you will notice that the mod contains an extras folder. In this folder you will find the Secubots security robot turrets, A weapon probe for connecting to turrets for standalone use, meant for use with the field guns, the pirate ship cannon and the 88. Also included is a filter extensions addition simply unzip and merge with filter extensions to get advanced sorting of SMM products IMPORTANT The Flak 88 is broken, and for a reason I don't understand it causes serious errors in game. Please do not use it or build craft that use it, As I've been unable to fix the problem the next update will remove the Flak88 Emergency download Links to original Boomsticks post Coming soon SM AFVs Tanks and trucks Gives you parts to build Tanks and trucks SM Old School Turrets and Tanks A relaunch and update of OST now with Tiger hull and ShermanM4 turret and Hull BoomsticksLegacy Boomsticks is currently under License: All Rights Reserved Old School Turrets and Never Enough Dakka With the uploading to SpaceDock or NED and OST I have decided to roll all the support and development into one thread, this should enable me to hear of and fix any issues ASAP. Although there will be little further development on these two packs( unless requested) I will continue to improve both function and appearance on all items, and of course I'll keep them working I have received some interesting other items in the assets i received from the original author PrototypeTheta and this will also make an appearance shortly THE NED REDUX RELEASE Works in 1.22 Old School Turrets Redux release Works in 122 Album link Thanks as always to @gomker @V8jester @XOC2008 and occasionally @colmo for testing bug hunting and sanity preservation Hi all yes the button is new, i don't ever expect anyone to bother, you are certainly not obliged in any way, I was asked by several people this week, if there was a donation button in order to show their appreciation, the wife saw the requests, and after a some discussion i have given in and added a donation facility
  21. Ablative-Airbrake More images: This "Ablative-Airbrake" mod adds a derived stockalike airbrake coated with ablator.

It uses the "KSP Add-on Version Checker" mod if you have it installed (not included) to check its version by using a connexion on my github page given below, read the "KSP-AVC Add-on Version Checker" page for more details. Gameplay infos: - Part available in the "Aerodynamics" category. - Part unlockable in the tech-tree in the Hypersonic Flight node. Compatibility: - KSP-AVC - TweakScale, thank's @Marcelo Silveira Installation: - No Dependancy mods. - On update remove any existing older version. - Copy/paste the folder "Ablative-Airbrake" in your "Kerbal Space Program/GameData" directory. - Enjoy! Download on SpaceDock Available on Changelog Github page License P.S: let me know about the balance or suggestion, as it is a really new mod.
  22. What is it? Universal Storage is a parts pack that allows you to build Apollo Service Module style sections with various resource wedges attached around central cores. The pack is designed to work with many life support mods. More information Download SpaceDock or CKAN or OneDrive Universal Storage is set of parts to help you build service modules for your craft. Two core parts for 1.25 and 2.5 meter stacks provide a number of attachment points where you can fit various wedges. These wedges can store resources, provide KAS containers and even be used to create Apollo style science bays. In addition a number of reactors and processors are included to help you make the most of your resources. Each of these parts are balanced based on real world examples used in the Apollo space program or on the International Space Station. Designed to work with other mods Universal Storage is designed to work with lots of other mods, Universal Storage will automatically detect these mods and add / adjust parts to match. For the best experience we recommend the following: Kerbal Inventory System Universal Storage works with Kerbal Inventory System. With KIS installed you can pick up wedges and place them in cores. You’ll also get access to new parts designed for KIS. DMagic Orbital Science This amazing mod adds lots of new science parts and contracts, giving you lots of new opportunities to advance Kerbal knowledge. The Orbital Science mod includes some science experiment wedges that will be available with Universal Storage and Orbital Science both installed. Life support mods Universal Storage includes config files to work with the populate life support mods, providing the resources required to keep your Kerbals alive. New parts will be available depending on what life support mod you have installed. Supported mods include: TAC Life Support Asmi's ECLSS IonCross Life Support IFI Life Support Snacks!

  23. Animated warp effect: Inroducing a new, stand-alone Alcubierre drive for KSP! What does it do? The Alcubierre drive works by moving space around your ship, not through accelleration. In KSP we do this by changing your vessels position based on the engine throttle controls for the warp engine. Speeds of up to 16 times the speed of light are possible. How does it work? Use massive amounts of electric charge to create Exotic Matter. Point at your target. Use Exotic Matter and Xenon Gas (the latter is for the maneuver thrusters) to go straight to the target. Note that since your velocity does not change, only your location, you will have to compensate for any orbital speed differences. This can be excessive (15K+ DV) or, with proper planning, next to zero. To be clear. This is NOT just a fast, efficient engine. There is no acceleration (other than a tiny amount from the maneuver thrusters). It works through translating the ship's position (simulating how a real Alcubierre drive might work). What's the catch? How is this not OP? You will still need either very careful navigation or excessive DV changes to achieve orbit. Also, because of the destructive nature of the warp bubble, parts outside of it (both on your own ship and others) will be destroyed. Warp bubble collapses are also destructive, and maneuvering at excessive warp speeds can be very dangerous (everything from losing control through parts of your ship slipping outside of the bubble and exploding). What other mods do I need? None. Really. The only dependency is Regolith which is needed for it's converter (used to make Exotic Matter from EC). What other parts do I need to support this? Stock only. Really. Near Future Technologies reactors, or reactors from the USI mods will make some things easier, but you can get away with a completely stock warp ship with just the addition of this part. Can this support [mod X]? If you want integration with other mods, tell your favorite modders to ping me.

  24. Because UbioZur has kindly allowed to update his work, Alewx and girka2k have taken care to update and maintain this great mod. From the UbioZur's original thread: ----IMPORTANT---- These are the basic requirements that are necessary for any support of the issues that are happening. -What KSP Version is used -What Welding Version is used -Which Mods are installed -Preweldment craftfile -KSP.Log If you do not provide this information, do not expect great help. ----IMPORTANT---- Please read carefully "Known limitations" and "Known Issues" sections before using this mod. The program is still under heavy development, so you may encounter problems when using it, and the result of it's work may not satisfy you. In this case, do not hesitate to report it here. This mod includes version checking using MiniAVC. If you opt-in, it will use the internet to check whether there is a new version available. Data is only read from the internet and no personal information is sent. For a more comprehensive version checking experience, please download the KSP-AVC Plugin. Download version 2.5.0 for KSP 1.2.2 Download version 2.3.3 for KSP 1.1.2 Download Config and Icons for very useful Filter Extensions mod. Latest changes: 2016-11-15 - Version 2.5.0 - Continued New Feature: Internal merging Welding parts with internals will now create new internals for this weldment Improved mass calculation precision 2016-11-15 - Version 2.4.4 - Continued Fixed NPE with certain parts 2016-11-10 - Version 2.4.3 - Continued Fixed scaling of parts having only a single mesh 2016-11-08 - Version 2.4.2 - Continued Fixed scaling of parts Fixed a bug with CoM offset with multiple models 2016-11-08 - Version 2.4.1 - Continued Fixed scaling of parts Fixed a bug with the file simplification Full history of changes: Installation As usual, extract the GameData folder from archive into the main folder where your game is installed - for example: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Kerbal Space Program WARNING! Don't delete GameData\UbioWeldingLtd\Parts folder or you will lose all your weldments! Usage Create the set of part you would like to weld inside the VAB or SPH Press button in stock Launcher Follow the instructions. Weldments will be saved in the GameData\UbioWeldingLtd\Parts folder Reload game and then you will have your weldment available on the part list. (You can try to save time by enabling the "Database autoreload" option in settings, but it should be borne in mind that this mode is incompatible with many mods and can cause problems.) Known limitations / supported and unsupported mods If you weld together multiple RCS, you will not be able to use the weldment for rotation - the game doesn't allow it. Don't include in your weldment more than one Leg/Light/Solar panel/Science experiment - it is game limitation. The main restriction is not to weld together two identical parts from this list. So for instance, you should not weld two legs together. One leg and one illuminator on the same weldment does not present a problem. Also it is better not to combine together several Docking ports in one weldment. If you weld Engine with integrated Alternator, your weldment always will have Electricity amount equal to 0 even if you have welded a battery to it (Bug/Feature of the game). Multiple Engine with Fairing are not supported by the game. Generally, I suggest not include the engine(s) in your weldment. Crew Hatch: Game allow them only near the CoM of the weldment or hatch will be unusable. Game won't allow several hatches. Winglet/wings/control surfaces/parachutes: they can/must work incorrectly after welding. Other limitations will be described Soon(â„¢) Incompatible mods: You can have all these mods installed, and will have no problems. But welding the parts from them will lead to unusable weldment. Procedural parts Infernal Robotics Compatible mods: Tweakscale Hullcam VDS (only one camera per weldment) Remote tech (don't add more than one antenna to your weldment) Feel free to share in this thread what mods works and don't work for everyone to know. Known Issues welded engines are causing a major trouble, already when they are welded and also as a new part.

  25. SEP v2.1.4 This is a continuation of the mod originally created by @AlbertKermin, and now co-authored by him, myself, and @DMagic. I'm merely starting a new thread so that I (as a more active user) can maintain the thread as needed. SEP now runs on a custom science plugin, allowing much more complex science over time. (See the next post for more images!) Changelog: Mod Support: This mod has custom science definitions for CaptRobau's wonderful Outer Planets Mod. This mod has custom science definitions for KillAshley's New Horizons Pack. @Nils277 has made a Central Station wedge for use with his Kerbal Planetary Base Systems mod. Run a SEP off your ground base! RemoteTech compatible (requires Module Manager) AntennaRange compatible (requires Module Manager) Dependencies: KospY + IgorZ's wonderful Kerbal Inventory System/Kerbal Attachment System. Credits: AlbertKermin, for creating the original MSEP mod, helping create the original SEP mod, and contributing sciencedefs for the current iteration. CobaltWolf, for creating the new models and parts used in the mod. DMagic for creating the new plugin on which the science system runs. KospY, for the Kerbal Attachment System mod without which my mod could not exist. Vaga, who created the RemoteTech compatibility patch. Kerbas_ad_astra, who created the AntennaRange patch. Beale, whose solar panel texture we used (with permission). Enceos, for his amazing help with converting the original mod to use KIS. JefferyCor, for advice on repairing one of this mod's more troublesome bugs. Dunrana for helping write the Science definitions, testing, and generally getting me back to work on the mod. Shameless plug: Need a lander to carry your SEP down to the surface? Like a fine wine, SEP pairs excellently with Bluedog Design Bureau - which includes a stockalike version of the LEM lander!
