This is a place where the KSP community can gather to share, discuss and promote their Favorite MOD lists, a place where new players can come to find sets of MODs that work well together. This place is in other words, a place where experienced players and the new players can come together to help each other and to teach each other. What is the MOD docket? It is a list of lists. Below you will find a list of all the add-on lists in the MOD docket. (Or at least you will if users contribute) Each category contains (or will contain soon) several links that will take you to a user recommended list of MODs that both work well together and share a common theme. So I want to contribute to Lists what do I need to do? (Optional), I recommend that you give your MOD list a Name. No rules for this outside the general Forum rules for good behavior. List the most recent version of KSP that you have used this list on. This is very important so that players do not try and use these add-ons on incompatible KSP versions. This is especially necessary if your list contains add-ons that have not been updated to the version of KSP listed for your list. We are all trusting that you have used it in the KSP version you listed so please make sure you have verified functionality before you list a non update add-ons. When sharing your add-ons it is required that you list the version of KSP that the MOD is updated for. If you choose to share an older version of a MOD you must ensure doing so does not violate licensing of the MOD. You must provide a link to the add-on. Either to an official download site provided by the MOD creator or to the release thread. Preferably you would provide both. Keep in mind that any forum of sharing must be in line with the licensing of the add-on creator. (Optional) let us all know why you think each add-on belongs in your list and how you feel this list is tied together. Significant artistic licence is not only allowed but encouraged in the regard. if you choose to contribute more than one list please maintain only one post for all of your lists that you may share. What role do you play in all of this? I will be maintaining the OP. My job is to keep the user generated lists organized and user friendly. When I share your list I will share your user name, a link to your MOD list, and the name of your mod list if provided. So I want to have a discussion about the list, is that OK? Oh yes! I so very much hope we have many, many discussions here. Please discuss, as long as it is on topic and does not violate forum rules or the rule below: Without further ado: The Busy Father’s Essential MOD’s by mcirish3.

EDIT: Since I now know that something like that was actually done but died, I try to figure out why. Original post: -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ! I'm only talking about modlists, NOT modpacks. A modlist doesn't contain any modfiles, it's just a text file ! just a disclaimer I don't want so summon any pitchforks or torches. Hello together, As you read in the title I'm looking for a place to collect modlists based on .ckan Files. There was once a Thread like that but I'm not able to find that now but it was dead anyway. (The thread is stickied... I meant the MOD Docket) There is also something similar to that on kerbalx.com KerbalX Modlists but as you see there isn't much that is actually useful. I don't think I'm the only one who would appreciate an easy way to share your modded installs with others and an easy way to get a new experience by playing a modlist from someone else. For example take Bob Fitch's YouTube series. Imagine you could go to a Thread in the forum and download the .ckan file for his installment and play just like him. (That's just an example I don't even know if he is using ckan to manage his installation and I know he's patching his mods to make it fit but why not also allow it to upload the MM file to get the patches to.) Or remember Scott Manley's Interstellar Quest. it's the same just go to a Thread or maybe to SpaceDock and download a .ckan file to install the mods and some MM patches to make them work together. To summarize my thoughts, I'm looking for: a place that collects different modlists based on .ckan files. A nice description what the modlist is all about and the version it was made for. Here what I imagine a entry could/should look like a place that collects MM patches for the modlists or even better in general since searching for compatibility patches for different mods can be painful. Things to be done to make it work (assuming there isn't something like I'm looking for already) get approval by the mod makers since modlists(packs) are a very hot debated topic add the actual version of the mod that needs to be installed in the .ckan file. As far as I know its currently only the name of the mod. being able to install a specific version of a mod via ckan. find a place to hosts the .ckan files. That could be a Thread and links to github, dropbox etc. or even a new category on SpaceDock the same for MM patches. people who like to create and share there modlists/MM patches. people who want to play someone else's modlist/MM patches. Please let me know what you think about that. I imagine it's something a lot of people would like but I could be completely wrong about that. Also while I searched if something like that was already put on the table I was not able to find anything. However if I just missed something please point it out.
All of this below is now irrelevant. Per RIC: http://forum.kerbalspaceprogram.com/index.php?/topic/126746-new-pinned-thread-in-addon-discussions-poll/&do=findComment&comment=2307233 --Ok so we got a new forum. So I got at request. Could we get a sub forum where users could submit mod lists. Such as their favorite mods, mods they think are essential, mods that improve career mode etc. etc. This would be super cool and bring a new aspect to the Addon section. It would also give less visible mods a chance to shine. I am sure there could be problems and rules needed but boy would it make life easier if you find a list with exactly the mods you like to use. And think about how many new users could be helped. Further explanation of my reasoning: FIrst, Mod list threads, due to their lower comment traffic, very quickly get buried in all the Mod traffic. This has the rather strong effect of making it impossible to keep track of a list of you run across one and don't choose to follow it, making it impossible to easily compare list if you can find them at all. Having your list quickly pushed off of the all important front page makes it a dead letter. Almost no one will see it at all. Taking the time to create and maintain a list is hardly worth the time of posting on the forum if almost no one is going to even see it. I would argue that far more people would share their mod list than those who currently do if there was a convenient way to ensure that it would not get lost in the noise. A place where other list could be compared and the community could collaborate, brain storm, and inspire each other, in a meaningful and useful ways. Second, I know I almost never go into the discussion forum and I think most users are this way, that is primarily a forum for, from what I have seen, those wishing to contribute ideas for mods or are mod creator's themselves. I would venture to bet the vast majority of traffic is through the Add-ons release forum, and since these list would be lists of released mods it would seem more appropriate in Addon-Release forum. Hmm I am not sure the mod list tag will cover it. You have to remember to search on that tag to find the lists and the person posting has to remember to use that tag as well.
