SurfaceStructures

another planet!

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.

The mod has been released! Further development and discussion of this
mod will be continued in the
RELEASE THREAD

Looks nice, UKS/TAC-LS/Other Life support/Colony mods support would be great! I will try it out later when I fire up KSP.

Wow looking good, I think it is high time I made some planetary bases. Will be following the development and if I run across something I will let you know. Nice work!

That's great! How is the memory footprint? In case, I'll include in my save ASAP!

@Nansuchao

I tried to keep the memory footprint as low as possible, many of the parts (e.g. all pipes and all containers) share the same texture. Also all textures used are in the *.dds format.

Looks like an awesome replacement for the old HOME modules. Looking forward to trying these out.

Excellent!

Looks very promising for mobile bases also. Just need some part underneath to attach wheels to.

Sorry about that, i renamed the folder from the working title to the new one and forgot to update the model-paths in the .cfg files.

As a hotfix, rename the folder "PlanetaryBaseInc" to "KerbalBaseInc" this should fix it. I will upload a fix ASAP!

The files are now updated and the parts will be available in the SPH and VAB. Just download the new version and override the old one.

Sorry for the inconvenience. :blush:

Looks great and will be testing it out soon.

Couple of suggestions "off the cuff" from what I have read and before I test it;

1) Stock Ore Processing Plant and Storage Tank

1.a) Tanks could additionally be made tweakable for various resource/fuel types utilizing mods like Interstellar Fuel Switch http://forum.kerbalspaceprogram.com/threads/117932-1-0-Interstellar-Fuel-Switch-0-2

2) Get with ethernet and adapt it with his Station Science mod http://forum.kerbalspaceprogram.com/threads/54774 i.e. "Ground Base Science"

2.a) This could open a Pandora's Box, leading to Extra-planetary Launch Pads http://forum.kerbalspaceprogram.com/threads/59545-0-90-Extraplanetary-Launchpads-v5-0-2, etc.

Again, it looks great, and welcome to the forums. Cant wait to try this out!

Wow, these look great! Very nice work dude!

Any idea if they play well with other mods, such as mks/epl/etc.

The Habitat or any other module can't be retracted when a kerbal is inside of it. (This would eventually result in crushing him/her :wink:). Another cause might be that you don't have a kerbal in a command module, the Habitat does not function as command module.

As of now there is not really support for/interconnection with other mods. Planned is support for TAC-LS, USI Life Support, Snacks, ECLSS, Connected-Living Spaces, Kerbal Inventory System and CTT. These will be added eventually. MKS and EPL are still in consideration, when they are demanded/wished for by the community.

Looks great and will be testing it out soon.

...

Storage tanks are already available (the two dark ones in the fifth image).

As for the other suggestions i'll take a look into it once the vanilla parts and the Life Support Mods are integrated.

Already thought about adding something like a garage or cargo-bay later. Aside from the missing IVAs and the support for other mods they will be added eventually. In the meantime you can still use the service-bay for a mini/nano rover.
