"Kerbal Mods Overhaul" (KMO) is nothing more than a set of patches initially made to cope with the personal desire to simplify/modify a number of very popular mods, MKS in primis, in order to bring a slightly different gameplay experience to KSP.
KMO has initially been made exclusively for myself, however, since the number of patches has greatly increased over the time, I have eventually decided to make a public release of this mods overhaul for anyone that may be interested in such a reconfiguration work.
This mod is NOT an updated version of MKS-LITE, it should rather be seen as a new gameplay experience for standard MKS (and related mods) with fewer resources, a simplified production-chain, changed part functionalities and full support for ExtraplanetaryLaunchpads resources, production chain, Survey Stations and Workshops.
Thus, this mod is NOT a tutorial mod for MKS beginners (that was the main purpose of MKS-Lite). If you just want to play an easier version of MKS in order to get your hands dirty and get to understand some basic mechanics, RoverDude has already implemented an optional patch that allows you to disable the requirement for machinery and get a gameplay experience closer to the one provided by MKS-Lite.
In addition to that, this mod does not include any part, asset, config file or anything else from any other mod.
Kerbal Mods Overhaul (KMO) is currently WIP.
Patches and Changes
I would like to make this mod as much configurable as possible, thus, I will try to add any suggestion/request into a patch, either optional or not. Please, ask for patches for supported mods only (see below). You may also ask me to create a patch for stock parts, however, the changes have to be related in some ways to the mods reconfigured by KMO.
This is a non-exhaustive list of the main patches and changes applied by KMO (v0.4):
You can opt-in or out some patches in order to get a personalized gameplay experience in accordance with your personal taste (PatchManager required).
See the individual .cfg files if you want to know more about the part specific overhaul.
Example of a fully self-sufficient planetary base below in Spoiler. You can see how the colonization parts have been reconfigured and appreciate the new gameplay design, which allows you to create smaller and easier-to-run bases.
Below you can find core and optional mods supported by KMO. Core mods are the ones for which my reconfiguration work has initially been made for and so they have the biggest amount of patches available. Optional mods nicely complete the gameplay experience (you should NOT install them ONLY if you have some serious RAM/hardware issues).
Modular Kolonization System (MKS) made by RoverDude
USI Life Support (USI-LS) made by RoverDude
