    Smile FASA-Jul-21-.24 Release v4.97

    Frizzank Aeronautical Space Administration presents - Apollo, Gemini & Mercury.
    Want to help me out, Donate!
    Donating is not an obligation, it's a gift of appreciation for me and all the hard work that I put into this mod. So if you would like to help me out I would appreciate it greatly.

    Legal - Donating does not entitle you to any goods or services from me or this mod and all funds go directly to me through paypal to be used at my discretion.



    These are Kerbal versions of NASA rockets, not NASA replicas. Replicas are not the direction I want to go with FASA. I want to keep it fun, simple, easy, and have it be a somewhat stock like in appearance. Currently there are 196 parts in this pack and they give you a wide range of options.

    The Apollo CM and Lander were created by DennyTx. You can fallow his development here. http://forum.kerbalspaceprogram.com/...23-03-03-14%29

    Also here is an excellent Skylab part for downloading. http://forum.kerbalspaceprogram.com/...v0-1?p=1272382

    Raster Prop Monitor version of Gemini
    http://forum.kerbalspaceprogram.com/...PropMonitor%29

    4.97 Latest Stable Full Release Now on Kerbal Stuff!!!
    http://beta.kerbalstuff.com/mod/27/FASA





    Just want the launch clamps[/B] and none of the fluff here ya go!
    http://forum.kerbalspaceprogram.com/...-Launch-Towers







    Install Instructions

    All mods reside in their own folder under "GameData" in the main KSP directory.

    Delete the old version of FASA before installing.

    The parts folder in the main KSP directory should not have any FASA parts in it. It is no longer used in .20 and beyond.

    If your upgrading from before .20 your craft and saves will no longer work correctly.

    Steam install is here.
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Kerbal Space Program\GameData

    The "Squad" folder is the stock parts that come with KSP, any other folder you add is a mod. To remove the mod just delete the FASA folder.

    If there are any parts you wish to delete from FASA open up the mod folder and delete any folders you dont like, or want. I do this a lot with mods I download. It keeps loading times low and filters out the parts I never use.

    If your upgrading to a new version "You Must" delete the old version of FASA before installing newer versions!

    Having older version parts and not deleting them will give you duplicate parts.
    [B]

    Something went wrong and FASA broke KSP, HELP!!!
    Do this first before asking for help....

    Step 1- This helps with memory problems.
    Delete the FASA mod. Run KSP again.
    From the main menu, click on settings and then Graphics at the top.
    Change your "Texture Quality:" to the Eighth Res option.
    Click apply then exit KSP
    Re-install FASA and try running KSP again.

    If nothing is working or some parts are missing, something is seriously broken with KSP continue to step 2

    Step 2- This helps with broken or missing parts.
    Start with a fresh instal of KSP. If you like you can copy the previous install somewhere else as a backup first.

    If your using steam, right click on the name in the library and click delete local files.
    Navigate to the steam game directory and verify that the Kerbal space program folder is gone. If it is still there delete it!
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\
    After its done double click the Kerbal Space Program name in your list of games and select install.

    If its a regular version of KSP. Delete KSP and then re-install it.

    You should now have a CLEAN version of stock KSP.
    Open the FASA.zip file
    Copy all of its content into your main KSP directory. If you put it in the correct spot you should get a confirmation popup asking if you want to overwrite the folders and files. Say YES overwrite all folders and
    files.
    You should have a clean version of KSP and FASA only.

    Run KSP and see if it works.
    If it still crashes on load, verify that you have enough free memory to run KSP with mods.
    If you have less than 2gb of RAM you are going to need to upgrade your system or install fewer parts.

    Whats with the sandwich?

    Much better, this is the only stuff i would use in NP, so i no longer need to download a metric ton of other parts i shall never use


    oh my, i'm back on my old avatar!

    and why do i only have 10 posts, what????

    Hey man could you try and make a Saturn 1 or 1B
    The first stage was just 8 red stone tanks all hooked up together

    Nice Mod!!!!!!!!
    Significant laggg though

    Any plans for a dedicated mercury capsule?

    8 Redstone tanks around a Jupiter

    It would be nice indeed, but it should be better to finish Mercury and the capsule first

    Your right they did not, they also did not fly from Kerbin, or were piloted by little yellow men, as well as a whole host of historically inaccurate things currently included in this mod as well as KSP.


    They did however carry a corned beef sandwich with them.
