    [0.23] KW Rocketry v2.5.6B Avaliable - working 3m Docking! - 31/12/2013

    KW Rocketry v2.5.6B

    Sounds and Docking Parts.

    By Winston & Kickasskyle

    KW Rocketry is the premiere modpack produced by Kickasskyle and Winston. Built originally for KSP version .15, KW Rocketry has seen many iterations, and has been reworked for KSP version .22. KW Rocketry was originally produced as a pack meant to add more parts with realistic balance to KSP, with a focus on VAB built vehicles. KSP has been widely used, however, for everything from fuel stations to shuttles and has seen many fan built craft posted on the KSP official forums.

    KW Rocketry now features emissives on every engine, normals for every part, and a number of brand new parts, including side-mounted tanks styled after those on the Vostok and Soyuz rockets. KW Rocketry also includes two different versions of the vanilla strut part, a choice of automatic or manual engine fairings and a number of 1-3m converter fuel tank parts.

    How to install:
    Firstly, ensure any older version of KW has been removed.

    How to install:
    Firstly, Insure any older version of KW has been removed. (GameData/KWRocketry)
    Now, for a normal install simply unpack the GameData folder included in the download 
    >> MERGING << the folders when prompted. This should be all you are required to do 
    for a basic install.
    For non-automatic engine shrouds you have to extract the GameData folder contained 
    within the Extras/NoAutoShroudConfigs folder after having previously installed 
    KW Rocketry as above.You should merge and overwrite the parts files when prompted 
    and this should mean your engines no long have automatic shrouds.
    Reduced Clamp sound installation is similar to that above, extract the GameData 
    folder from within Extras/ReduceClampSounds.
    ----SUB ASSEMBLIES----
    To install the subassemblies, simply extract the folder labeled Subassemblies located 
    within the Extras folder into your KSP save folder of choice, for example:
    Kerbal Space Program/saves/(SaveGameName)/

    The majority of the parts contain the same part names as those previously, save for those nose cones which got changed a few version back.
    If your ship save has been harmed by this I suggest installing the older nose cones and removing them then resaving your ship.

    Texture Resizing
    Due to the way texture formatting has been changed it's alot harder to edit textures as they're in .MBM format, if you have the means and know how to edit and replace or resize .MBM textures you're more than welcome. Normal maps and emissives should be easily resized as they're still stored in an editable format.

    For some reasons spaceport says "Not allowed file type."
    Promethazine? It should be called epimethazine.

    The cake is a Lie group.

    When trying to download, the website says "Not allowed file type."

    Maybe Spaceport wants zip, not rar?
