  1. 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.

  2. Stockalike Real Fuels Engine Configs For Real Fuels v12.x After playing with Real Fuels, I got hooked. But, many of my part mods' engines were not included. I decided to fix that, and this is the result. Latest Release GitHub Repository Config generator found at NOTICE: Some engines have "lost" their effects. This is a known issue, and a result of moving fully to a new engine MODULE in RealFuels. As a result, Real Plume is highly recommended. Configs are included in the RF Stockalike download. Available on CKAN Updated on January 15, 2017 Changelog: v3.2.3 * Fix RCS persistent effects in release (thanks Alexical) * Ion and NTR effects updates (thanks Blowfish) v3.2.2 * Various community fixes. See commits for details. v3.2.1 * Add Cormorant Aeronology * Add SpaceX Launchers Pack * Bugfix to resourceFlowMode (Starwaster) * Add Sounding Rockets (Canis Dirus Leidy) * Pull RealPlume configs out of that mod's folder v3.2.0 * I goofed, not a real release. v3.1.0 * New Plumes from Svm420 * New Squad engines config * Tantares bug fix from nwtest * SDHI/TAC/Stockalike conflict resolved v3.0.1 * Works with KSP 1.1.2 and RF v11 * Updates by bfrobin446 and blowfish v3.0.0 Lots of stuff, installation changes.

Description This is a stockalike setup for you engines to work with Real Fuels. All of the stock (or part-pack's "stock") numbers for thrust remain the same. Meaning, the Mainsail still pushes the same kN as before. But, the masses are reduced to be in-line with realistic numbers (according to the calculations anyway). There is also an RCS config to make the RCS thrusters work with the appropriate fuels. These have followed the original thrusts but will change given the fuel used. So, a hydrazine RCS will have better thrust than an HTP one, but an MMH/N2O4 bipropellant RCS will have greater thrust still. And yes, bipropellants are set up. This was originally done with the help of Chestburster's XLS that I found in the Real Fuels thread (link here). Since then, I've added mod parts I've either used in the past or use currently. I've also added some variations in the fuel mixture used for each manufacturer (i.e mod). So if you swap out a KW engine for a NovaPunch one, be sure you've got the right mix in the tanks. This adds to the variation in my opinion, as it gives you a reason to switch things up. This is also a continual work in progress. Any suggestions or help is encouraged. I don't have every mod in this file, so if you feel so inclined to add your favorite that's missing, please do. Let me know of the edits and I'll continue to compile a running config. Also, if you'd like to add your thoughts on balancing, please do that as well. I've not rigorously tested every engine, since I don't play with all of these installed and I'd rather simply play than test. So, I may have missed something or goofed some numbers.

  3. Lightly modded stockalike playthrough!
  4. 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.

  5. Hello everyone! I have introduced myself in my last post,so i will just jump right into it.Here is:Sputnik 1 in KSP! Sputnik itself: The rocket (feel free to copy it,but dont forget to credit me): 3...2...1: LIFTOFF!!! Spaaaaaace! Cmon...Spaaace: BOOM,ORBIT BABY! Look at it! LOOK: So that is all that i got .I hope you enjoyed
  6. This parts pack is intended to provide a more standardized and cohesive alternative to the stock parts while still maintaining a compatible appearance. In essence, a stockalike launcher pack. View an album here until image insertion is fixed Download v_1.0.5 (on Spacedock) Current Features: Complete set of fuel tanks ranging from .625m to 5m (includes 1.875m). Complete set of fuel tank adapters. complete set of Soyuz style streamlined fuel tanks. Complete set of RCS thruster blocks, nearly every conceivable configuration. Interstage adapters and stack splitters with fairings. Low memory use: all 36 fuel tanks share just two textures! Planned Features: Engines, so many engines. Monopropellant tanks and engines. Aero engines. Standardized crew pods. Landing legs. Utility parts. Suggestions are welcome! Known Problems: Terrible textures. Now 20% less terrible! Interstage adapter nodes don't play nice with certain parts. Cause unknown, enabling part clipping helps in some cases. Licensing: This modification is released under the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-Share-Alike 4.0 International license (CC BY-NC-SA 4.0), the full text of which can be found here. Integration: Interstellar fuel switch integration is planned, tanks and engines will be compatible with CRP LqdHydrogen westamastaflash has created a RealFuels patch, find it here!
  7. Greetings all. I know there are a few car mods that have been made but, wanted to do my own. Currently, It's only four parts: Two passenger 'pod', wheel module, nose adapter and, a dual car to .625 adapter. The resembalance to a old Caddilac was completely accidental. lol. Pictures: Jet engines are definitely not required. My textures mapping is a bit lazy, and i need to fix shading. I'll probably add a truck box part, and i might even expand this to stock-textured boat parts. Smaller ones. Since there's at least three packs of boat parts... Comments welcome!
  8. I Was Thinking About making a KSP Stockish modpack, With the high texture feeling that's given to me by Color Coded Canister or USI Costellation, and I needed a mod That "Revamps the textures of engines, landing gears, wings and so on. Thinking About making one myself, Since Ven's Stock Revamp seems unable to wun without problems... I'm not an artist but I have spare time to give to modding KSP Any Ideas?
  9. Parts to fill stock niches, including 0.625m LFO engines and tanks, a full suite of monopropellant engines ranging from 2.5m to sub-0.625m, brand new 0.625m SRBs, 0.625m high efficiency engines using LiquidFuel, Monopropellant or Xenon, a number of new probe cores with varied specialisations and shapes, more ways to produce electricity, a range of RCS blocks both large and small, and structural parts to glue it all together with.

  10. While messing around thinking of payloads suitable for a Nexus, I started working on a giant 70 foot (half scale) re-entry pod. That thing rapidly became a monster. A single part that's a small town with tanks and labs, and observation decks and it needed cargo space, etc etc. So, eventually my brain suggested the following ideas to me, way later than required to maintain sanity. If instead of making one giant preconfigured pod, I made a series of pod floors, that are interchangeable, then the whole thing becomes reconfigurable. Also, it solves a bunch of problems with large craft the moment there's even one floor. (assuming I'm not completely loony, I'll be starting at the smallest size) So, seeing as the 2.5m to 3.75m pod module is now mostly functional, I'm releasing this into the wild. At this first release, there's four parts. There's a crew quarters part, with a fairly early WIP interior. There's a science lab with a link to that same sketchy interior. This will change later as I furnish the interiors. There's a fairly early WIP fuel tank in two flavours, monoPropellant and dual fuel. Nothing has real fuel or realism overhaul configs yet. Please note: The fuel tanks are by no means complete. But, I'm calling the crewed pod variants "textured". BUT, it's my first attempt at a stock look. So if people have suggestions (apart from the dark-light contrast on the panel dirtiness being too strong, which I know about and am looking at fixing) please let me know. The top and bottom hatchy type image is outright stolen from Squad's large pod. Shamelessly. The rest is me messing about in layers in GIMP, mostly getting stuff on the right layers (but not always, which is why that shading is tricky to fix). Don't forget to look under the flag. :-) Anyway, pics or it didn't happen. (part album here ) Download from SpaceDock [ edit - I thought I'd already put this here, but I haven't.... derp ] Here's the plan, as of writing, of which parts I will be doing. I do stumble on extra things, like the combined heat shield and engine, as I go, so the plan is unlikely to survive exactly as it is to the end. I may also give up before getting to Mk16 parts, but I definitely want to get to at least a size 8 base, maybe more if I rescale my Nexus to 64% instead of 50%. Sizes Size 2 to Size 3 from 2.5m to 3.75m Size 3 to Size 4 from 3.75m to 5m Size 4 to Size 5 from 5m to 6.25m Size 5 to Size 6 from 6.25m to 7.5m Size 6 to Size 7 from 7.5m to 8.75m Size 7 to Size 8 from 8.75m to 10m Size 8 to Size 9 from 10m to 11.25m Size 9 to Size 10 from 11.25m to 12.5m Size 10 to Size 11 from 12.5m to 13.75m Size 11 to Size 12 from 13.75m to 15m Size 12 to Size 13 from 15m to 16.25m Size 13 to Size 14 from 16.25m to 17.5m Size 14 to Size 15 from 17.5m to 18.75m Size 15 to Size 16 from 18.75m to 20m Parts planned for each of the sizes above Service Module A combined fuel tank, battery pack, RCS, antenna unit (Done for Sz2-3) MonoPropellantTank A fuel tank for monopropellant (Done for Sz2-3) BiPropellantTank A fuel tank for liquid fuel and oxidizer (Done for Sz2-3 and Sz3-4) Crew Quarters and Control A control pod with some extra seating (Done for Sz2-3) ScienceLab A science lab with experiments and a science bay (Done for Sz2-3) Cargo Stores things behind doors (Done for Sz2-3) HeatShield Protects things from re-entry heat Battery - might not do this.

  11. This is a "mod" I made for KSP which I feel adds some parts that are missing in default KSP or should be added to default KSP. This is my first mod and will be added to as I have time. Current parts include: A mk16 parachute that can be deployed at 700m/s but it is heavy and expensive. A high power ion engine with the cost of increased fuel and energy use, it should be about 1.25 meters in diameter. Last, A bigger version of the FAT-455 aircraft wing meant for mk3 planes that need more lift than a standard FAT-455 wing can provide. It has increased fuel capacity and cost. Also, everything on this list has a modified description, cost, entry cost along with a few other changes. If there are ANY issues with this mod, please tell me. I know nearly nothing about code so if something goes wrong I am requesting assistance from the KSP forum community. This mod should work will all versions of KSP that are greater than version 1.1, but also with KSP 1.0.5 and higher. Enjoy the mod! (Pictures will be added soon) NO LONGER BROKEN! YAY! Disclaimer: I own no rights to the original texture and config files in this mod, excepts rights that come with purchase of KSP. Squad and or Porkjet own rights to the original files. I do however own rights to the modified files, and if I see this mod re-uploaded by someone else who claims it as their own I will request it to be removed.

  12. Hello, There is a mod called stockalike station parts, and it seems it has gone dead. Can anyone update this for 1.1/1.1.2? Or tell me how to update it? I am using 1.1 because it has more mods available right now. This is one of my favorite mods and would love to see it come back. Sadly the user that made it hasn't been active in over 5 months. Help?
  13. Hot Contents Orbital Systems A Mod by Sequinox and Joco223 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Q: What is Hot Contents Orbital Systems? A: Hot Contents Orbital System is a mod that aims to have multiple parts for every purpose imaginable. Stock engines are very limited, so I aim to develop a mod to where you can look for a part that fits what you need and it will be there. Q: Wait a minute, you're not a modder! A: o_o You got me! This is my first mod I am developing for the community. I started off making some Real Plume configs for the Launchers Pack mod. From there I decided I would like to do something I can truly call my own. Q: Where can I give you feedback? A: You can always tell me how I'm doing by just replying on the thread! Feedback is always welcomed and it helps me develop a better mod! Q: Alright, cool. Anything else we should know? A: All of my mods will use GitHub for the main download. I believe that GitHub should be used by every mod creator due to the fact that you can see what you are downloading. If you wish, there will always be a download on SpaceDock. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Image Gallery ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Downloads: GitHub SpaceDock ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Hot Contents Orbital Systems requires: RealPlume (Not included in the download!) SmokeScreen (Included in the download!) ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Planned Stuff: Grey: In planning Red: Modelling Yellow: UV Mapping/Texturing Green: Unity stuff/Config files Strike Through: Put on hold HC-2 Lower Stage Engine: A small 1.25 engine. Comparable to the Merlin 1C. HB-2: The next tier of upper stage engines. (READY FOR RELEASE) HA-Multi Engine Adapter: A 9 engine adapter. Comparable the the adapter on the Falcon 9 1.1. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Change Log: v.Demo-1: Added HC-1 Orbital Engine v.Demo-2: Added the HCE-2 Polished up some stuff with the HC-1 v0.1: Added the HB-1 Added the HC-FT-1 v0.2: Added HC-SB1 Rebalanced the HB-1 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Help Wanted! We are currently looking for someone who can do unity configuration and create config files!
