  1. Parts would have minimum temperatures, and some would passively radiate heat. When minimum temperatures are reached, the parts wouldn't explode or anything. They would merely stop functioning. However, based on a setting in the difficulty options, if a command module or spacesuit reached minimum temperatures, the kerbals could be at risk of freezing to death. Different kerbals would have different time limits for staying below minimum temperature, basically like gee tolerance. Something else that should be added would be parts specifically meant for heating the spacecraft. Drills, converters, fuel cells, RTGs and active engines would passively generate heat. Liquid fuel tanks and idle liquid fuel engines would have an incredibly low minimum temperature. Landing legs and airbrakes, as well as xenon tanks and ion engines would have a fairly low minimum temperature. Wings (whose aerodynamics would simply not work quite right when too cold), command modules and passenger modules would have a medium minimum temperature. Probes, batteries, solar cells and reaction wheels would have a high minimum temperatures. Finally, surface temperatures. Planets would all have ground temperatures, including the ones without atmospheres. However, part temperatures would be affected by the ground much more slowly than by the atmosphere. Therefore, you could probably last on Eeloo or Minmus for days without a heating system. You wouldn't have to worry too much about Jool's moons, as they are heated by tidal forces. With Duna you would probably want a heating system, seeing as it has an atmosphere. Also, unlike atmospheric temperature, surface temperature would change depending on whether it was day or night.
  2. KerbalFoundries - Continued Re-inventing the wheel. Literally. This is the main release and development thread for the continuation of KerbalFoundries, originally created by Lo-Fi and Gaalidas, continued under new development with explicit permissions from the original authors and under the terms of the original licensing. This mod adds a variety of new parts to KSP that include wheels, tracks, and anti-gravity repulsors. For a list of features available to the wheels and tracks in this mod, please see the KSPWheels documentation ( https://github.com/shadowmage45/KSPWheel/wiki ). Currently included are four wheel models, eight track models, three repulsor models, a single skid/ski, a single screw-drive, and three adjustable aircraft landing gear. Tweakscale is not needed or supported for the wheel or track parts (though you should be able to have it installed without problem, the wheels will not use TS for scaling). Scaling of the parts is accomplished through the KSPWheel plugin's native scaling support, and includes configurable scale powers for all scaled variables (rpm, load handling, motor power output) (in the in-game difficulty menu). Many options are available and configurable through the stock in-game difficulty options menu. Look for KSPWheel and all of the options will be under that tab, including scaling powers and damage model adjustments.

Include log files, a description of the problem, and screenshots if they will help explain the problem(s). Mod Dependencies: KSPWheel (included) ModuleManager (included) Documentation: Please see the KSPWheel wiki for information regarding the features, functions, and configuration of the PartModules ( https://github.com/shadowmage45/KSPWheel/wiki ). Images, screenshots, examples: Change log: * Full logs -- https://github.com/shadowmage45/KerbalFoundries2/releases Known Issues: * Balance on parts is a bit arbitrary - can be changed based on feedback (especially the scaled balance) * Scaling support is WIP - scaling powers are not finalized (motor, mass, speed, load, etc) * Any other issues that exist with KSPWheel (see the KSPWheel repository/issues list) Future Plans: * More cleanup on configs and lots of balance work. * Add a selection of helicopter style rotors. (custom KF plugin support, modeling, configs) * Add a selection of airplane style propellers (custom KF plugin support, modeling, configs) * Add a selection of VTOL / airship / hovercraft style ducted fans. (custom KF plugin support, modeling, configs) * Add alternate and optional 'ICE' engine handling -- uses lfo/ox/intake air, with torque curves and gearing more suitable to an ICE engine.

  3. Procedural Parts, Starwaster Branch. Download Latest Release for Procedural Parts Features The features include Everything accessible by tweaking A broad range of shapes including cylinders, truncated cones, filleted cylinders, bezier cones. New part shapes are easy to develop and plug in, so cuboid / pill shaped / whatever else you want shaped will be able to be created. Most stuff configurable in the config file, including resources and fill ratios, tech levels, available shapes Diverse support for career mode - tank shapes, dimensions, and contents all limited by researched tech All supplied parts are carefully designed to be as 'stock alike' as possible in their tech level requirements - You can't create a monster tank before you've discovered basic rocketry for example. Other mod support - tanks for RealFuels, Kethane, Extraplanetary Launchpads, and TAC. Heat shields for Deadly Reentry. (thanks to OtherBarry) Plays nicely with Ferram Aerospace Research Multiple textures available for part surfaces. These are fully compatible with StretchySRB textures. A Module - TankContentSwitcher that can be applied to existing tanks (with say module manager) and allow their contents to be tweaked. Tweak any tank in the VAB into a Liquid fuel only or oxidizer tank. Parts available Tanks Different parts supplied for different 'groups' of fuels (Liquid fuels, SRBs, Monoprop, Xenon). The multiple part approach is to allow for tech limiting of sizes and volumes. SRBs Tweakable thrust (or burn time for real fuels). Tweak between a choice of two bells that are designed for surface or vacuum, with varying ISPs. Decoupler Tweakable diameters (with tech defined limits), ejection impulse, and can be in either decoupler or separator mode (again tech dependent). Structural Part Good for fuselage, adapters, whatever. Half as light as the equivalent tank. Batteries It's a bit rough and ready, but it works well enough. Nose Cone Specialized structural part for nose cones. The shape is limited to a smooth cone with a bounded ratio of diameter to length. Heat Shield Built to the same specs as Deadly Reentry. Will shield any sized object from heat. (requires deadly reentry) Installation Just extract the zip into your KSP folder and you should be away. Some of the integration with other mods requires the latest version of ModuleManager, which is included in the zip. Known Issues Sometimes if the procedural part is the lowest part on the rocket, it may explode on the launch pad. Easily worked around with a launch clamp. This is fixable but will take more effort than its worth. Custom Textures and Texture Packs Procedural Parts is compatible with all texture packs for StretchySRBs. It's easy to roll your own texture packs too. Here's some texture packs that other people have compiled: Ferram4's Saturn and Nova Textures. Installation instructions in zip. Download MainSailor's Procedural Textures Forum Thread for MainSailor's Procedural Textures blackheart612 Full thread! Enceos' Procedural Textures Full Thread Integration with Real Fuels and Modular Fuel Tanks Integration with Real Fuels and Modular Fuels Tanks is complete. Ensure you have Real Fuels version 6.1 or newer, and Modular Fuel Tanks 5.0.1 or newer. For MFT, the existing tank types are turned into the corresponding MFT type. For RealFuels, there's an SRB which can be switched between low altitude and high altitude versions, plus a tank which can be switched between the various RF tank types. Integration with other mods Procedural Parts has built-in support for MFT, RealFuels, Kethane, Extraplanetary Launchpads, and TAC. There's also a procedural heat-shield for stock / Deadly Reentry All part's drag models will automatically update if using Ferram Aerospace Research. The tank types will automatically appear if the mods are installed. They should be 'fair' compared to their unmodded versions. How to cheat in career mode have lower tech restrictions The current tech restrictions have been tailored to closely mimic stock, with a bit of room to alter the original specs. Note that this will not be changed with the out of the box config. If you'd like more generous limits, you can create a MM patch (ie: cut and paste this into a file called mycheats.cfg in your GameData dir) and tweak to your liking: @PART[proceduralTank*] { @MODULE[ProceduralPart] { @TECHLIMIT,* { // Increase the max length for all tech levels by 3* @lengthMax *= 3 // Corresponding volume increase @volumeMax *= 3 // Increase the max diameter by double @diameterMax *= 2 // Since volume goes up on diameter^2, need to use increase^2 @volumeMax *= 4 } } } Future plans (sorry, right now Starwaster has his hands busy just doing maintenance and updates) Cuboid parts, with customizable side lengths Extruded parts, such as hexagonal and octagonal pieces Add optional mounting pod for surface mounts to pod tank. Procedural command module, possibly with rescaling / tweakable IVA. Features That Are Not Planned Shapes with 'holes' in them and concave shapes - including toroids. Procedural wings, procedural fairings - there's good mods for these already. Procedural engines - May happen one day, but not a priority. Acknowledgements ProceduralParts has an extended family tree StretchyTanks is the original module by the great @AncientGammoner StretchySRBs was created and updated by NathanKell and e-dog. ProceduralParts is a near complete re-write by @swamp_ig. ProceduralParts was then maintained by @NathanKell ProceduralParts is now owned and maintained by RadarManFromTheMoon Then it was maintained by @OtherBarry and RadarManFromTheMoon Now it's being maintained by some @Starwaster person.

  4. TRAILERS: (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.

  5. Airplane Plus Powerful stockalike parts for aircraft enthusiasts. Feedbacks would be helpful. And if you have time, please take the Poll: Click here to vote on what part do you want to be added Download at: Spacedock · Curseforge Optional: User Patches: Tweakscale Compatibility RPM Compatibility AJE Compatibility F-16 Cockpit RPM Remotetech Config Sound Issue Workaround is under "Issues" Below If you want assist in hovering, I recommend this mod I'm using -- Album disappeared because of forum issues, here's the link - http://imgur.com/a/6kDLM -- Revised Rotorwing Demo video (with the new IVA) Extra: Video of the Rotary Engine, Demo of Helicopter, and Landing with Flaps Latest Changelog: Installation: Remove old folder if there's an old installation. Copy the GameData folder into your root folder. -Included in the pack are AirplanePlus and Firespitter folders. It also packs ModuleManager* *I do not own these mods, I merely packed them in for Airplane Plus to be functional and avoid linking downloads for dependencies. Big thanks to their Authors. FAQ: Is Tweakscale/RPM/BDArmory/AJE compatibility possible? Yes, but I'm not too keen in doing that over what I want to do with the mod itself. There are user patches here in the OP, below the downloads. The blades aren't moving/the blurs are visible/some parts look weird. How do I fix this? Very likely caused by a broken firespitter.dll, generally, the Plugins folder is necessary, but the resources folder is very important as well. My VTOL/Helicopter pitches up/is uncontrollable despite the CoT being right above the CoM! What am I doing wrong? Too much power from the engines cause it to pitch up, this is avoidable by throttling down, lower your thrust limited or adjust the RPM lower for helicopter rotors. My engines are stopping at a certain speed/sometimes the engine says that it can't combust in Kerbin's atmoshphere. How do I fix this issue/Is this intended? This is caused by going too fast for the propeller. Mostly happens for early engines in career mode. Still possible for others but those have higher speed limits. I don't want all the parts/I only want certain parts of the mod. I know, it's not a question, but there's a part deleter's guide in the zip itself, you can check it out and see which parts you want and it says there where it is. License: *I only take credit on my parts. Firespitter and Modulemanager which are included in the pack are made by different authors with their own licenses. Most performance configs powered by @Tanner Rawlings Shout out and big thanks to @acc for doing a test run back then. @kiwinanday helped a lot on producing important info in reconfiguring performance, thanks a lot!
  6. About This is the new thread for B9 Aerospace. The old thread is available here This pack adds a vast selection of new parts, introducing new spaceplane components such as new engines, cockpits, wings and fuselage systems, new structural components for orbital installations and colonies, and so on B9 was originally developed by @bac9, @Taverius, and @K3-Chris, now maintained by @blowfish and @Flashblade with help from many others Requirements The latest version is compatible with KSP 1.2.2 (build 1622). All other KSP versions should be considered incompatible. If you are on an earlier version of KSP, however, you may be able to find a compatible version of B9 here B9 depends on several other mods to make it work. They are included in the download, and listed below in the "Dependencies" section. Installation Instructions You can install with CKAN and have the dependencies installed automatically. If you are doing a manual install, open the zip you downloaded, find the GameData folder and copy all of its contents into your existing GameData folder in KSP. If you already have any of the bundled mods, check which one is the latest version. Note that the core and HX packs come with the same version of some dependencies. B9 will not work unless installed correctly. If you're having issues, please verify that you have installed it correctly. Download Three packs are available for download: B9 Aerospace Core Pack - All of the main spaceplane parts B9 Aerospace Legacy Pack - Older Mk1 and Mk2 parts, modular wings. Requires the core pack and all of its dependencies B9 Aerospace HX Pack - Large blocky futuristic parts. Does not require the core pack, comes with its own dependencies Also available on CKAN Changelog Latest Version Release 6.3.1 Fix CryoTanks patch not working Fix wheels breaking over 10 m/s Remove wheel sounds effects that weren't working Increase load rating and brake torque of larger wheels Increase heat tolerance of Mk2b cockpits Previous Versions FAQ Q: The mod crashes the game for some reason, what can I do? Make sure that everything is installed correctly, your dependencies are up-to-date, and you are on the correct version of KSP. If you can't find the issue read this helpful topic and post the issue in this thread. Be sure to include your logs! If you are quite certain that you have found a bug, you can create the issue on our Github page. Try to provide as much detail as possible - logs, example craft, reproduction steps. Also be sure that the issue is reproducable with only B9 installed. Posts along the lines of "Its not working" or "Everything is broken" won't really help us much. Q: I don't understand a thing in those IVA displays, there are too many buttons and screens Here is a very helpful manual. Q: Why aren't you respecting stock balance? Mods should reference stock for the configs of the new parts, otherwise balance of modded game would be all over the place! While we try to respect stock balance as much as possible, there are a number of inconsistencies in the balance of stock parts that make it impossible to keep balance against every stock part. If something seem very far off of what it should be, feel free to ask in this thread. Q: I can't find those huge blocky parts from the opening image in my part catalog. Why are those missing? They were recently separated into another download as they mostly don't share dependencies with the main part of the mod and as many people prefer not to use them. Q: I can't find the modular wing pieces that are depicted on many screenshots of this mod. Why are those missing? They were removed and will no longer be developed. They are available as an optional download in the Bitbucket repository linked on top of this post, but we do not recommend using them. A far better option is using procedural wings, since you'll have just one part with just one material and just one texture covering any possible wing shape then. Good for performance, good for design freedom, good for looks. Grab the procedural wings here. Q: Why aren't procedural wings integrated into the main B9 package? Because they have entirely separate dependencies and are maintained by different folks. Merging them will only needlessly complicate updates.

  7. Download from SpaceDock. See the imgur album for screenshots. Recompiled for compatibility with KSP 1.3. I have not done any localization, nor do I plan to do so. If you want to create a localized copy, let me know and we will figure out how to make it happen. This add-on is a set of parts I created because I was a little dissatisfied by the stock Launch Escape System (LES). The PEBKAC Industries LES (PKI-LES) is designed to more or less simulate the Apollo and Mercury LES's used in real life. The LES for the 3-naut capsule features a totally non-functional Boost Protective Cover (BPC), launch escape motor, tower jettison motor and a small pitch control motor/nosecone and canard assembly. The canard assembly deploys roughly 8 seconds after the launch escape motor runs out of propellant and serves to help orient the escaping CM toward retrograde. It now includes a science experiment to simulate the "Q-ball", which contained atmospheric/aerodynamic sensors which were part of Apollo's "Emergency Detection System". The LES for the 1-naut capsule is modeled after the one from NASA's Mercury capsule. It didn't have any pitch motor or canards. The included plugin allows you to automatically conduct abort procedures. Just add the parts, hit the "ABORT" key and everything will take care of itself. Use staging to jettison the LES after a successful launch. Or you can add the jettison command to an action group if you prefer. I based all of the non-performance-related details (cost, tech-tree, etc) of the PKI-LES on the stock parts. Many of the other details were tweaked to be more realistic. One big difference is that the PKI-LES has a much total thrust than the stock part from Squad. The mass (and centers of mass) of the parts were extrapolated from the Apollo and Mercury LES and scaled to be proportional to a "stock" CM assembly. I tweaked the aerodynamic properties to be (IMHO anyway) closer to reality. The end result is a more or less realistic flight profile. From the launchpad, the included example craft should reach the ocean upon initiating an abort. Also included in this version is a LES for the 3-naut capsule which has no BPC. Aside from this visual change, the part should function identically to the other Mk2 LES. The plugin code to make is compatible with the LES for the SDHI Service Module System. It should be flexible enough to use with pretty much any other LES out there. If you find one you want to use and can't figure out how to use my plugin to automate it, drop me a PM. The download includes a sandbox save-game which has two example craft using stock parts showing how the PKI-LES is supposed to be assembled and configured. Finally, if you play career-mode, you should eventually get some flight-test contracts for the PKI-LES parts. New to this version: - recompiled for compatibility with KSP 1.3 Some future plans: - add tweakable for time delay between abort and canard-deploy and LES jettison - make the aft BPC for the Mk2 LES look more like an actual BPC - add RealPlume support or else just make my own exhaust FX - any suggestions or requests? Licensing: I reserve all rights to this add-on. If you want to re-use or modify these parts or my code for derivative purposes, just drop me a line here and I'm sure we can work something out. This license expires and the add-on becomes public domain if I fail to respond to queries in the addon's release thread at http://forum.kerbalspaceprogram.com within a period of six months. I reserve all rights (present and future) to the name PEBKAC Industries. This addon includes art assets created by MP_Nazari for the Hot Rockets addon. See the license file in the Gamedata/MP_Nazari/FX folder for details. If you have suggestions for improvement or would like me to try to incorporate specific features, let me know and I'll see what I can do. Thanks, and have fun! Hopefully your Kerbals will never need to use these parts!
  8. Have you ever said "I don't want to live on this planet anymore"? Now you can! We at Kerman & Kerman Orbit and SurfaceStructures are proud to present you the all new product line for Kerbals who want nothing more than to live on another planet! We at Kerman & Kerman finally got out of the testing phase and now consider our parts to be usable. This mod adds several new parts that are designed to be used in a planetery base for the Kerbals.This includes Habitats, Greenhouse, Laboratory, a Cupola derivative, Command-Center and others. It is designed to fit with the other stock parts and feel as "Kerbal" as possible. Galleries Supported Mods You need ModuleManager (min version 2.8.0) to use the supported mods!

  9. 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: http://www.curse.com/ksp-mods/kerbal/241283-sstu-shadow-space-technologies-unlimited And are also available on Github: https://github.com/shadowmage45/SSTULabs/releases (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): https://github.com/shadowmage45/SSTULabs/wiki 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: https://github.com/shadowmage45/SSTULabs/issues (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: https://github.com/shadowmage45/SSTULabs/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: https://github.com/shadowmage45/SSTULabs/issues Bug Reports: Please submit issue reports for any problems you encounter via the GitHub issues tracker: https://github.com/shadowmage45/SSTULabs/issues. 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: https://github.com/shadowmage45/SSTULabs/wiki/Parts---Master-List 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 Soyuz CSM stack. Includes Orbital Module, Descent Module, Service Module, and LAS. Ship Core: Series B 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: Series C 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. Ship Core: General A line of generic / utility parts. Fairings, RCS, Science experiments, and procedural decouplers of various types. Includes a full line of configurable/dynamic fuel tank parts in standard cylinder, sphere, R-7 booster (integrated decoupler), and upper-stage (integrated rcs) form factors. Includes a full set of truss based cargo bay modules. Also includes a full line of interstage fairings and petal adapters, and standard payload fairings. (Many parts not shown in album) Lander Core A series of parts specially crafted to enable low-part-count non-atmospheric lander designs for use in the stock Kerbol system. Station Core A line parts for low-part-count station use. Includes inflatable Bigelow-inspired inflatable modules, inflatable centrifuge modules, ISS inspired habitat and lab modules, and a line of TKS/DOS inspired single-part station cores (integrated solar, engines, rcs, docking ports, sas). Also includes a full line of stand-alone solar panels and a 'welding' docking port. (Album not yet available) Craft Files None currently available, will possibly 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 -- As of KSP 1.2+, KRJ is no longer necessary, as the stock Auto-Struts can eliminate most of the wobbles. Might still have utility on extremely large craft designs, but should no longer be nearly-mandatory. USI-LS -- Patches for most parts 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. TAC-LS -- Some patches are included. Not up to date, and not all parts are patched. ConnectedLivingSpace - A simple CLS patch is included to add CLS passability to all SSTU crewed parts. FAR - Unsupported. You are on your own if you choose to use FAR. Any problems involving FAR needs to be brought up in the FAR thread. RO/RSS - Unsupported. Take any support requests regarding RO to the RO threads. KR&D - Known to be incompatible. Some config edits can be made to allow them to work in the same install, but KR&D cannot adjust stats on most SSTU parts. Introductory video by MrMeeb Known Issues IVAs - Many are incomplete. WIP. They'll be finished 'eventually'. Textures - Many unfinished textures.

  12. LATEST - Work In Progress Video Update 2, below main post. Kelland Kerman, affluent playboy billionaire and co-owner of global multinational corporation TKR, has found his true goal in life - to make sure everyone knows what a small-time, know-nothing charlie Elon Kerman truly is! "Duna? All he cares about is Duna! Who wants an electric toy car company on Duna?!" Kelland doesn't think small, he thinks BIG! And has set up a specialized company, Superluminal Space Industries, to take Kerbal-kind not just to Duna, but to Jool, Sarnus, Neidon, Urlum, and even the next star system! That means quickly advancing Kerbal technology to Deep Space Exploration and eventually faster than light travel...all whilst still adhering to Kerbin International Health and Safety standards, of course.. *coughs* Having set up SSI a few years ago now, the first fruits of his labour have begun to show themselves... Superluminal is designed to be a late game parts pack that aids in reducing part count and giving the player more options in using deep space exploration mods like USI, Keep Fit, Kerbalism, Interstellar, Outer Planets, Nertea's Near Future etc etc. Weekly Update Videos Update 2 Update 1 The "Normal" Part A lot of the stuff here is farther along than i've shown, and any help when i hit roadbumps (Like the Spacebus issue i had) will always be gratefully received and credit given when the mod releases in full. I mainly play KSP with (amongst a good many others) USI, Nertea's stuff, Outer Planets and Infernal Robotics. So i'll be mostly focused on getting them working with them in mind first (EDIT - Regarding IR - nothing will require IR but the VTOL engines. The centrispinnials will be standalone but IR -compatible-.) The centrifuges will b. But i will be making sure they're usable standalone and for the other more popular mods (like Interstellar). I also adore the idea of centrifuges (everyone says so, but barely any modders make them), so i thought i wanted to make a really big pack of them for me....*coughs* and by extension everyone else to play with. And i always glanced at the KeepFit mod and thought it such a cool idea (both realistically and adding another enjoyable level of gameplay challenge), that it deserved some parts. So this mod is my love letter to KSP and to get us some centrifuges. (mad rambling sentence below) To be honest, this entire thing span out of the simplest reason - When i was creating the new IXS a few months ago, i realized the schematics made it better suit the 5m ingame dimension rather than the 3.75m. So i thought "But i want a 3.75m command bridge!" and made the Enkeladus. Then i thought "Well, if im going to go into deep space exploration parts...centrifuges." and it kept getting larger and larger, and now ive thought of and designed most parts i think will make the set. So! To sum up... the mod will comprise of 5 sections. Superluminal Bridges - 11 Command Modules and Support Craft Centrispinnials - 11 centrifug...spinnial customizable modules Superluminal Hulls - 3 large hulls to customize your long voyage requirements after you've decided on what type/how many/how large your centrif..spinninals are. Superluminal - 4 warp ring sizes Misc - A few small parts that make quality of life improvements. Thanks for reading folks, and i hope you guys are up for some alpha/beta testing soon! Steve If you want to buy me a drink as thanks or just tip me for my hard work, feel free at Frequently Asked Questions Centrispinnial Compatibility - The centrispinnials wont require any mods apart from B9 partswitch and/or WildBlue Tools that come included. They will be made Infernal Robotics compatible, but not required. What other mods will be required to make one this work? - b9 partswitch is the only -requirement- (due to the kraken's and a couple other parts design) WildBlue Tools and the Community Tech Tree (CTT) will all come bundled with the mod, and the VTOL engines needs Infernal Robotics, but only b9 partswitch is 100% required, all others can be discarded if you dont like/dont use them. I always try to make my stuff be stock compatible (for those that dont like many mods in their game and just want parts) and work with the most popular other mods too. IVAs on the Centrispinnials? - Yup! Rotating if possible, and thanks to some helpful people here in this thread its looking ever more likely. What's the License on this mod going to be? - Creative Commons. As long as you don't make cash out of my hard work, you can play with it, fiddle with it, and abuse it however you see fit. I'm a firm believer that the Kerbal community should get the most support they can, because this is one of the best games ever made. Will there be testing? - The schedule of releasing and testing will go as follows : Alpha 1 - Functionality Testing - Will add the Command Modules and Support Craft Alpha 2 - Functionality Testing - Adds Centrispinnials Beta 1 - Functionality and Balance Testing - Adds Warp Rings, Main Hulls and Misc. Beta 2 - Final Balance Test before 1.0
  13. 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: http://imgur.com/a/M1HX0 http://imgur.com/a/R9sZ0 Instalation: 1. extract RustyStarRockets.zip to GameData folder 2. have fun!

  14. Introducing Konstruction! Konstruction adds new parts and game mechanics to KSP centered around base and orbital construction! Features: Weldable, configurable construction ports, with auto-rotation and configurable parameters on the fly. Once connected, these can be removed, resulting in a permanent joint between the parent parts of the two ports. Design your assembly in the VAB, cut it up and add construction ports, reassemble in-situ. Great for large bases and stations, or building larger vessels in orbit! Konstruction also includes an array of parts that can be used to create forklifts, cranes, magnetic couplers, stabilizers, etc. - ideal for building vehicles to help with in-situ assembly. If Module Manager is installed (not included till an official 1.2 version drops), the claw will have a magnetic grappler added to it automatically. Lastly, Konstruction includes the absolutely adorable Akita Rover. Small enough to fit in a Karibou cargo bay, great as a little runabout for your base. And now the important bits!

  15. SEP v2.3 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!

  17. BETA Version (v0.4.5.1) I feel happy enough with the state the mod is in at present to open this up for a 'Beta-test'. Without further ado I present my first Mod release: Introducing the Recoverable Emergency Kerbal Transport (REKT) escape pod mod. This part mod pack is designed to introduce another means of safely recovering your Kerbals from a mission which may have gone wrong, or possible as a deliberate means of evacuating an orbital station as it makes its graceful descent on a sub-orbital trajectory. Command: REKT mk1A - Single Kerbal pod with built-in airbrakes for atmospheric re-entry REKT mk1C - Single Kerbal Cryogenic† pod with built in RTG. REKT mk1D - Single Kerbal lightweight pod with inbuilt communications equipment and additional provisions (where applicable)* REKT mk1N - Single Kerbal pod with built-in retro-rockets, which can be automated**, for non atmospheric sub -orbital trajectories REKT Miniature Probe Core - for flying kontainers, has a built in MonoProp thruster. OTAV Core - Single Kerbal lifting body style pod. Utility: REKT Kompatible Kontainer - a simple freight pod which can store a multitude of provisions*** REKT Kompatible Kontainer (KIS Variant) - unsurprisingly, a KIS variant of the REKT Kompatible Kontainer REKT Auxiliary Miniature Parachute - a smaller, slim-line a parachute designed to fit well under the ITA. Coupling: Surfacemount Hardware REKT - A surface attaching single pod decoupler. Inline Triple Adapter - a 1.25m Inline triple REKT mounting adapter, you might want to cover this with a faring... Inline 12 Hub - A 2.5m inline adapter with the functionality of the Inline Triple Adapter but four times the capacity! OTAV Docking Port - lightly angle inline docking port designed to mate with the front hatch of an OTAV core. OTAV Ring Dock - specialised round docking apparatus, 2.5m dia. Designed for use with OTAV docking clamps. OTAV Clamps - splecialised apparatus to mate an OTAV core pod to the OTAV Ring Dock Electrical: Standard Utility REKT Fuel-cell - A compact monoprop fuel-cell Engines: REKT Payload Retro Rocket - a miniature SRB, derived from the same ones in the mk1N, intended for use with the freight pods OTAV engine - small LFO engine derived from the Thud engine. Aero: OTAV Winglets - bespoke retractable wings for use with the OTAV core. OTAV flap - a precise control surface for use with the OTAV core. OTAV Air Fins - Stabalisaing apparatus to help assist atmospheric flight and incorporating an air-brake. OTAV Parts OTAV Parts have additional dependencies separate from the REKT mod: REKT-OTAV Deployable Lift Generators rely on using the RetractableLiftingSurface module created by @linuxgurugamer the current version at time of release is bundled with this mod. the OTAV integral landing gear is driven by @Shadowmage 's KSPWheel. They will NOT work without it. current version at time of release is bundled with this mod. Additional note - These parts may receive more attention/extra bits if there is interest in it's development. Localisation is now Supported - as of 23/06/2017 release (any translations offered would be helpful!) DOWNLOAD: Primary: Github Secondary: SpaceDock download and copy the SHED, KSPWheel and RetractableLiftingSurface directly into the your KSP GameData folder. Licensing: The contents of the REKT mod are distributed a CC-BY-NC-SA International License (please refer to the license file on github for further details). Any included mods are under their own licenses. Highly Recommended Supporting Mods: REKT 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). IndicatorLights by @Snark Landertrons managed by @Kerbas_ad_astra RasterPropMonitor by @MOARdV Module Manager will implement the supporting modules, so you'll need that to (if you haven't already got it). The REKT mk1C is compatible with @JPLRepo's DeepFreeze Mod (designed specifically for this purpose) *Supported Life Support Mods: TAC LS USI LifeSupport Snacks **Landertron is required for automatic functionality ***InterstellarFuelSwitch is required for variety of cargoes †DeepFreeze is required to use the 'cryogenic' aspects of the pod. [Its will act as a normal pod with an RTG without this mod. It can be removed from your REKT installation if desired] KIS functionality is now supported through the REKT Kompatible Kontainer (KIS Variant) I must extend my thanks to @Snark, @Kerbas_ad_astra @DStaal and @linuxgurugamer for their input and help. Also thanks to @njmksr and @MaverickSawyer for preliminary testing. And thanks goes to @CobaltWolf and @dboi88 for help and guidance with texturing. Also I owe much thanks to @Pak who helped me fix the aero setup for the OTAV (finally). Change log: Imminent Additions (Soon™)t: rework to OTAV clamps to include RCS rework to OTAV core to include RCS new part - OTAV OMS block Planned additions: IVAs for the pods (still WIP on those at present) Create the mk1C - a REKT equivalent Cryo-Pod, specifically designed for use with DeepFreeze Properly update TAC-LS patch Finish the mk1C animation components Additional MM config patches for the StageRecovery Mod to enable more autonomy of the pods (and allow for concurrent multiple suborbital trajectories without risk of the core game 'scrapping' the pod. Further integration of Indicator Lights (extra, more clever bitz). Accessories! KIS variant of the Freight Kompatible Kontainer More adapter parts (bigger, better). Way down the pipeline is for a custom plugin that would replace the 'probe module' in the mk1A (and possibly mk1N). Feedback and suggestions: 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!

  19. Hello all! I have another new mod for you. A couple weeks ago, the incredibly handsome @AlbertKermin asked me if I was interested in making a mini-mod. Inspired by the OSIRIS-Rex mission, he wanted a small sample return capsule that could be loaded with experiments and safely return. The mod contains two parts, a command/parachute and heatshield/cargobay. It is currently 2AM, so I don't want to write more, but I wanted to post this in time for the weekend! Compatibility: RemoteTech configs are included. Known Issues: There is no data storage in the command module. It will be added soon. Future Plans: lol. Accept compatibility patches, keep it working with future KSP updates.

  20. 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 http://www.kingtiger.online/ 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.

  21. Version 1.7.5 This is a parts pack intended to flesh out the stock mk2 parts lineup by providing new engines, air intakes, and fuselage segments and cockpits in the mk2 formfactor, to give players more options when building spaceplanes and more. All textures are stock textures where possible, using MODEL nodes, so RAM footprint should be minimal. -Command 2 kerbal Inverted cockpit with IVA 1 kerbal Multi-purpose high visibility cockpit with IVA 2 kerbal Mk2-1.25 cockpit with IVA 3 kerbal Mk2 spaceplane cockpit with IVA 1 Kerbal Bubble canopy with IVA -Control Aerodynamic Configurable Monopropellant RCS block Aerodynamic Configurable LF/O OMS block 5-Way heavy duty Mk2 conformal RCS block Roll control RCS chine block Prograde/retrograde RCS chine cap Stability Control RCS and SAS module Monopropellant OMS pod -Air Intakes 1.25m to Mk2 inline air intake Ramscoop intake Mk2 shock cone intake Mk2 precooler Mk2 subsonic circular intake -Engines 'Vector' Thrust Vector Turbojet 'Afterburn' TurboRamJet E.S.T.O.C.

  23. Latest Update 0.99.03.07 replaces 88's in two formats New missiles and launchers, Ammo and bullet type upgrade and overhaul, hundreds of fixes and improvements EN US LOCALIZATION Requires further download for proper function SM Armory SMAFV's SM Marine and LBP share a common dictionary Failure to install dictionary will result in part names and titles being displayed as autolc### it's not a bug and I will laugh at the next person who fails to read the instructions SM Armory 1.3 SM Industries Required download The original BDA expansion contains over 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,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 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 Links to original Boomsticks post -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Here now SM AFVs Tanks and trucks Gives you parts to build Tanks and trucks AFV Utility arm assembly ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 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 Note concerning issues. There is now a git repository for SMA in order to access and provide a hard record of any issues that occur, as the modlist grows the more i find i'm forgetting and it makes sense to do something proper for a change . You can find the issues reporting pagehttps://github.com/SpannerMonkey/SM_Armory/issues at the following location 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
  24. Omicron - walkable and usable interiors, hatch doors, docking ports, seats, all for your Kerbals Delight! Join the next era in space flying car playmobil like! *ingame*ingame*ingame*ingame *render Hello, Everyone. So, this is my idea, from child, I dream to fly one of these. A flying car. The name is OMICRON! Is a flying space car with a foot on reality and other in near future. The engine is in the same principle of a Saber engine, but Vtol too, and will accept stock rocket engines in the back. all parts are modular and you can build on your own. But i put some example crafts with the download. My attempt is to have the EVA and the IVA all together, i mean, the Kerbals will be visible inside the craft, and all windows/doors will be openable, more likely the stock seat, but inside the craft. The configurations you'll be able to do it, reach VTOL, SSTO. I'm not creating new engines to put on back, only the Vtol SSTO ones that show in the pics, on the side of the craft. I hope all can joy this creation and use it in your voyages. Cheers commanders. List of things i still need to do (for full release): Solar Panel; Back docking port; Airbags & Floaters; IVA; Functional cockpit panel; Ejection system for seats and windows; Wings; Fine tuning parts (crash tolerance, temperatures, etc); Download links: https://kerbal.curseforge.com/projects/omicron-space-flying-car (primary) https://dl.orangedox.com/kMYba6mjZcUikGQNaD (secondary) Installation Notes: Change Logs: Dev Thread: Dev Thread (Portuguese): http://forum.kerbalspaceprogram.com/index.php?/topic/93843-dev-omicron-carro-voador-espacial-criação-das-partes/ Omicron by Climberfx is licensed under a Attribution 4.0 International
  25. ===> Curse.com main download. <=== ===> SpaceDock mirror. <=== ===> Available in CKAN. <=== Dev thread here Video review by Kottabos: Video review by GrunfWorks (fresher one): Languages: ,, For other languages - commit to GitHub instance of ChopShop (/GameData/ChopShop/Localization.cfg). 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. Changelog: Troubleshooting: It's GNU GPL 3.0 until I find something more CopyLeft-ish. Now I have a proper place on GitHub, so grab Unity Package from here and feel free to make commits. Comments, bug reports and ideas for further development are welcome.
