Kerbin Exploration Technologies Corporation, or KerbX, is a Kerbal space transport company headquartered near the Kerbin Space Center. It was founded just recently by former KerbPal entrepeneur Elon Kerman. It is developing the Falcon series launch vehicles and Dragon series spacecraft, among others. During an interview with KNN, Elon Kerman said that he "would like to die on Duna, just not at the point of impact".
What is this mod?
It's going to be a parts only mod comprised of SpaceX rocket and spacecraft design analogues for KSP. The mod will not necessarily be for people who enjoy building elaborate rockets, it's intended for people who want a sleek, simple, good-looking rocket design that just works. Basically, this mod will get your payloads - custom-built rovers, satellites, spaceplanes and interplanetary probes - to and beyond keostationary orbit with ease. The first release will feature the Merlin 1D engine for the 1st stage, Merlin 1D Vacuum engine for the 2nd stage, a long first stage fuel tank, a shorter second stage fuel tank, an interstage fairing (will work as a decoupler in-game), a second-stage-to-payload interstage fairing (also a decoupler), Draco (RCS) thruster, RCS fuel tank, different length payload fairings and (temporarily) an ASAS module. The Falcon 9 design will be 2m in diameter and around 30m tall (without a payload on top of the second stage).
I hope to develop the mod further and include the Dragon and its many variants (Red Dragon, DragonRider, DragonLab) as well as hypothetical future Falcon rocket designs in 3m and 5m diameters. As I type this I have Blender open and am hard at work to bring you renders that I can show off. The 3d models will have a relatively high polygon count, with a lot of attention to detail - the same goes for the textures.
Any and all comments and suggestions are greatly appreciated
