Community Mods and Plugins Library continued for 1.2.2

112 posts in this topic

IMPORTANT: 1.3 is out but the list is not updated yet, and will not be updated every 10 mins to follow the mods releases. Please be patient and wait for the modders to update, and then for us to update as well. If you want to have the latest updates in real-time, I suggest looking at CKAN or Add-on Version Checker which are updated automatically. We will add 1.3 tags to updated mods, and when enough of them are updated, we'll start moving mods still in 1.2.x to the outdated section.

 

This thread is a continuation of the Community Mods and Plugin Library which used to be a list containing a large number of mods ordered by category to help people finding new ones. Unfortunately, it was lost in early January along with several other mod release threads with no hope of recovery. This new thread will hopefully succeed in replacing the old one, and hopefully help users finding new mods. (Kudos to @nismobg for the original thread from which I stole quite a few mods and ideas)

 

A few notes on the structure of the library:

  • Mods are organised by categories. Things can and will evolve as more mods are added to make it easier to find mods.
  • Version compatibility is taken directly from the thread titles as we won't always have the time to check every single mod. Know that mods compatible with KSP 1.2.0 or 1.2.1 should generally be compatible with KSP 1.2.2.
  • The modders that we cite are the owners of the release threads, not necessarily the creators or sole developers of a mod.

We are open to suggestions: if you feel the categories could be improved, that a mod does not fit in its current category, or know that a mod is working or not with 1.2.x, your participation is welcome as are any ideas to improve this list.

 

Participating in the library:

Besides the points above, you can also suggest new mods to be added to the library in case we missed some. Simply reply giving the name, and if possible the version, a link to the forum post and a brief description.

Note that this list is not exhaustive and if you don't see the mod you just suggested, don't worry, we will probably eventually add it in the next few updates. Know that maintaining several hundred of mods takes some time so mods may not be added straight away; on the other hand, replying takes little time and any comment on the thread will be noticed and replied to by either of us.

 

(Note to modders: should any modder not want his/her mods to be featured in this list or have any correction to make about one of their mods in particular, just drop a message or PM and I'll edit it as fast as I can.)

 

"We" refers to @CarnageINC and I. He is currently co-maintaining and organising the thread and does a fantastic job on his side! He can answer questions/requests/suggestions at least as well as I can (if not better). He also maintains the Add-on Development Mod Library which lists mods being developed, mainly for modder use. So big big thanks to him!

We also thank everyone helping both of us by participating in the library and suggesting new mods to be added.

COMMUNITY MODS AND PLUGINS LIBRARY (currently maintained for 1.2.2)

 

IMPORTANT:

  • Mods in green are compatible with version 1.2.2 either from testing or simply from their release thread. They may not have been recompiled for 1.2 and may appear outdated, but they work fine.
  • Mods in light green are not officially updated for 1.2.x but users have made patches to make them compatible, you can therefore use them with the patches. The patches will be linked along the main thread.
  • Mods in blue are in development. They usually don't have an official release but you may get a test build for the latest version that works reasonably well.
  • Mods in yellow are outdated mods that have had past releases but are currently being worked on, they will soon switch to green!
  • Mods in red are broken on 1.2.x.
  • Mods in black are outdated and it is not known if an update is being made.

Wouldn't it be better if you post it in the Mod Release area as it's where it used to belong?:P

I did hesitate for a while on where to put this as I didn't remember where the original thread was. I'll ask for it to be moved.

Also I just updated the thread by adding a few mods, and added Kerbalism. Thank you for your help!

It'll be quite fast if you just have a look at CKAN, since it provides a short description of any mod included already~ If you haven't thought of it already, that is.:D

 

Very good work and thanks a lot for your effort btw!

I have not thought of it already. I am not a CKAN user (I prefer to blame myself for mods installed incorrectly) but I'll definitely take a look at it, thanks!

(Also reminds me to add CKAN to the list)

Please also add the one that aren't updated (yet), it would be useful to have all those link in one place. Older mod can help to develop new one and this may motive some moders to maintain forgotten mod too.

I'd like to focus on the active and updated ones for now. I'll add those who aren't later on.

I think it would be better to not have the lists hidden inside spoiler boxes, as I often like to be able to use ctrl + f to search the entire list...

Good point, but the list would be a real mess without spoilers. I'll try to see if I can remove them while keeping the whole thing readable.

 

 

EDIT: Removed the spoilers. Now all the mods are cramped up in lists, I find that boldfacing names improves readability but I'm not 100% convinced, I am open to ideas for that.

Maybe write the mod's name in bold with a more visible color ? And use a bullet list ?

This a list of mods in order for people to find them more easily, it is in no way a working modlist to be used as is. I'm pretty sure half of these mods are incompatible with each other.

I have the bullet list already, and the mod names are blue because of the links. Boldfacing them and adding more shiny colours would just make the thing even messier.

I think the soundtrack editor mod is discontinued since 1.x.x and is broken for 1.2.0?

I've thought about it, and while stealing all the mods from the previous thread, I've noticed that a lot of them, that were pretty big and well-known, are outdated. When this list reaches a stable state, I might consider opening a new list of deprecated mods, to motivate new modders (or old ones) to take on these mods. Of course someone else can do it first (I promise I won't patent the idea).

Thank you for making me notice (don't really know what I saw when writing this one down), correcting this right away.

Infernal Robotics is still active and arguably, current (the 1.2.x version is unofficial, and requires small tweaks).

I think the original thread creator went AWOL, so they don't have the rights to make the 1.2.x update buried in the thread official even though it was made by one of the creators. Or something like that. Reading through 70+ pages of the thread isn't easy.

Here's one post that somewhat clarifies how to get the new version.

So I'd like to see it here, if only because it makes it easier to find and check when they do make it official.

Thank you for this, helping people accessing unofficial builds is indeed a good thing. I'm adding it to the list.

To mention some to add to the list:

EVE (Environmental Visual Enhancements) is still active. It adds clouds to KSP. :P

Then there's the Extrasolar planetary system mod, which works with the current version and development just recently started back up for:

Cormorant Aeronology adds shuttle parts

@Gaarst Awesome job!  I really missed the old one after it got lost.

 

The link to @agises In Game Notes App should be:

It currently links to Blizzy's Toolbar which is listed immediately above it.

Thanks for doing this!
