Where to get it
Download the latest version from Kerbal SpacePort
Go to the GitHub Page
Simply merge the contents of the zip file into your Kerbal Space Program folder.
Add the Compotronix SCS part to your vessel; it’s under the “Control” category in the Vehicle Assembly Building or Space Plane Hanger. After hitting launch, you can right-click on the part and select the “Open Terminal” option. This will give you access to the KerboScript interface where you can begin issuing commands and writing programs.
The SCS module requires some electric charge to operate. You can shut it off to save power by right-clicking it and using the "Toggle Power" option.
Some commands can be aborted, including programs that you have run. Simply open the terminal and hit control-c to break. This is useful if you accidentally write something that runs forever.
