  1. SORRY now with RCS nosecones! [0.2.1] - Possibly fixed mod not loading on some computers Welcome to the first parts mod for KSP2. Spaceplane and Orbit Reutilization and Recovery companY or SORRY for short, is a parts mod that adds parts such as gridfins and rcs nosecones (for now). Gridfins(Aero/Control Surfaces) - from S to L they provide control on atmospheric flights! great to steer loooooooooooooong rockets! (Brakes to activate them) Nosecones with rcs ports(Utility/RCS) - they come in XS to XL, equiped with a big fuel tank and a smaller Monopropellant tank to use along side with its 4 RCS ports. Steer your rockets in space! Links Github (latest release): https://github.com/LuxStice/SORRY/releases/tag/Release Source: https://github.com/LuxStice/SORRY Spacedock: https://spacedock.info/mod/3336/SORRY Spaceplane: Recovered SORRY: for the explosions... =============================================================================== Dependencies BepInEx (comes in SpaceWarp) SpaceWarp [0.4.0-1.0.1] - https://github.com/SpaceWarpDev/SpaceWarp/releases/tag/spacewarp-1.0.1 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Recommended Community Fixes Expect Bugs and instability, we are still in very early stages of part additions to the game, almost everything is still being researched and tested for better implementations. Planned parts (Mostly ordered by priority): Airbrakes - they break the air. no wait... Aerodynamic Landing Legs - to avoid breaking our sexy engines Inline Chutes - use fuel to land? IN THIS ECONOMY? Inline service module with RCS tanks, reaction wheel, solar panels and batteries - all in one part, what a beautiful sight. And messy too Aerodynamic Docking port - Cutting through air and crafts Aerodynamic RCS Blocks - use RCS to steer? IN TH---- Open to suggestions! You can test our new parts here: https://github.com/LuxStice/SORRY/releases/tag/Testing Credits: Descriptions and part names: Dreamliner & Shorkie Expect things to be buggy on these Testing versions, I'm still trying figure out about how things actually work and how to implement them properly! Also, gridfins model was a placeholder for testing, i dont own the rights for it! All models right now are temporary, I'm focused on making things work first. Im open to help you add your parts to the game, feel free to ask! License
  2. KSP 1.12.x Stockalike Station Parts Expansion Redux [2.0.10] Last Updated June 24, 2022 A complete and total rebuild of my old Stockalike Station Parts Expansion project. Everything has been redone, and nothing is left of the old mod! Check out some key features: Small Station Parts: A full set of 1.25m station parts, with habitats, control rooms, connecting tubes, hubs and much more. Medium Station Parts: Expanding the 2.5m set that stock provides, you'll find greenhouses, structural components, specialized connectors, orbital stowage bays... Large Station Parts: Yup, large station parts! A full set in the 3.75m size class, from habs to labs to... well, lots more! Reworks: I've taken the time to rework the three stock station components (Cupola, MPL and Hitchiker) to match the new parts. They look the same but new! Inflatable Habitats: A nice set of inflatable habitats for maximum crew space. They range from teeny to huge. Centrifuges: All size categories have at least one centrifuge habitat. They range from small and cramped to massive and spacious (one of the largest parts I've ever made). Cargo Containers: I really felt like making some multi-purpose cargo containers. These modules will adapt to what mods you have installed, and provide storage for resources from MKS, TAC-LS, USI-LS, EPL and probably a few more that I forgot. Self-Levelling Base Frames: To help align your bases on slightly bumpy terrain, use these base plates, which feature individually adjustable legs with a self-level function Extensible Crew Connections: Much like the Klaw, but better! Varying lengths and impressive looks! Comprehensive Mod Support: With the help of many forumgoers, this mod contains support for tons of mods, specifically those related to life support and colonization. IVAs: It almost killed me but everything has fully featured IVAs. Full integration with all my other mods. Community Tech Tree support. What more could you ask for? Actually, don't answer. Full Screenshot Gallery Frequently Asked Questions Q: What does this mean for Stockalike Station Parts? A: It is now obsolete and deprecated - no further work will be done. It can be installed alongside with no problems Q: Kerbals for rescue contracts spawn in pods without airlocks! Unacceptable! A: Download @Shadowmage's Rescue Pod Validator. Q: How do I abbreviate the mod's name? I'm CONFUSED! A: SSPXr. Q: This mod is enormous! How do I deal with the RAM usage? A: Don't install the IVAs. They are bundled in the Extras folder for a reason. Q: Why are all the IVA spaces black in IVA view? A: . The IVA spaces are not installed by default. Install them if you want this. see next answer for how. Q: How do I install the IVAs? A: . CKAN: select the package and install it, it counts as a separate mod. Otherwise, place the folder from Extras into your KSP Gamedata.

I really appreciate it, and also helps justify this time sink to my wife , which results directly in more models.
  3. Starship Expansion Project Starship Expansion Project (SEP) is a mod being developed by me, Kari, and our amazing team. Our project aims to bring our intepretation of the Starship vehicle by SpaceX into Kerbal Space Program. While a lot of the design choices are based on the actual vehicle sitting on Boca Chica, creative freedom is used to expand our mod even further. Special thanks to @damonvv for allowing us to adapt tundra's plugin to ourselves, @SofieBrinkfor her hard work adapting the code and overall improvement of the mod, @IsaQuestfor the raptor model and textures, @Janus92 for the amazing IVA models, @EritoKaiofor indirectly helping me improve myself over the last few months, and you everyone on my discord server for their immense support to our mod, I could not have done without you Screenshots Dependencies Module Manager Waterfall (0.8.1 or higher) B9 Part Switch Extremely Important but not required mods Textures Unlimited (for shiny parts!)

R: If you have not found a feature you like, please check our roadmap to see if it's not already planned, otherwise feel free to ask nicely and we'll happily look into it 2. Why there's only 2 engine modes on the booster? R: When we where authorized to use part of Tundra's plugin, we agreed to leave the engine switch on Tundra's mod, as it was made mainly for falcon, if you want an extra mode, install Tundra and it will be on your game 3. What are those names? R: I renamed the parts to match The Expanse (my favorite show) names, if you're not familiar or want to have real names, there is an option for it on the extras folder when you download it 4. Where are the legs? NOW AVAILABLE ON V2.0.0 R: Well, to be fair leg design for Starship is tricky, so I've left without it for now, in the meanwhile you can try catching the ship or use one of the legs from KRE 5. IVA?

  4. Here's a couple of stock-alike station hubs. These are stylistically derived from the stock six port station hub. However, these two have three and six side ports instead of four. Good for building alien themed stations. There may be more parts in this pack later or this might be a one off thing. Now with GingerCorp as a contract dispensing entity!

  5. ScrapYard (SYD) A common part inventory addon for Kerbal Space Program. By Lisias and zer0Kerbal, originally by magico13, then by severedsolo adopted with express permission and brought to you by KerbSimpleCo Preamble by severedsolo The bit you are actually interested in ScrapYard is a mod that provides a part inventory that can be shared between multiple mods. Parts are added to the inventory when you recover a vessel and are removed from the inventory when you build a new vessel. If you have ever played with Kerbal Construction Time, it's a significantly improved version of the part inventory that KCT had, that is also able to be used by other mods. As of writing, ScrapYard does the following Parts are added to the inventory automatically upon vessel recovery Parts are applied in the editor (not automatically like with KCT) Parts are then pulled from the inventory on build (mods can change when this happens) Parts are stored individually in the inventory along with any modules that “define” the part (think TweakScale and Procedural Parts) The number of times “like” parts are used is tracked and available for mods, both total uses and number of builds (KCT’s part tracker feature, expanded) Parts are trackable from the moment they are placed in the editor until they are removed from the game via a unique ID that transcends recovery and new builds The number of times an individual part is recovered is tracked, perfect for consumption by part failure mods (WIP) Funds can be overridden so that using parts from the inventory do not contribute to the cost of the vessel. You do still need to have the full amount of funds (for now). ContractConfigurator support for adding or removing parts from the inventory as part of contracts See More Help Wanted Localization Installation Directions 1 Use CurseForge/OverWolf App We take no part, nor are we interested in maintaining the CKAN mod metadata for my mods. CKAN is a great mod for those that can't use zip tools. If you are having issues please let the CKAN people know and refer to the CKAN thread.

  6. All Rights Reserved Tantares (For Kerbal SpaceProgram 1.12.X) Description Tantares is four mods! All of them standalone, and with minimal dependencies: Tantares: Soviet crewed spacecraft, space station, and LEO spacecraft *Requires B9PartSwitch TantaresLV: Soviet launch vehicles and upper stages *Requires B9PartSwitch TantaresSP: Soviet interplanetary probes *Requires B9PartSwitch TantaresSAF: Soviet Aerodynamic Fairings *Requires Simple Adjustable Fairings, B9PartSwitch The parts are made with the "LEGO" frame of mind - they fit together to make certain craft, but are flexible and generic enough to be used in many creative ways, just like vanilla KSP parts. If you're using TantaresSP, I highly recommend using one of my other mods, Neptune Camera, which adds camera functionality to probes. Screenshots TantaresLV Screenshots Tantares Screenshots TantaresSP Screenshots TantaresSAF Download Links You need B9 Part Switch for all Tantares mods. B9 Part Switch You can get Tantares on both GitHub, Spacedock, and CKAN. Craft files are included in Tantares and TantaresSP. Tantares - GitHub (Earth Orbit Spacecraft) TantaresLV - GitHub (Launch Vehicles and Upper Stages) TantaresSP - GitHub (Interplanetary Space Probes) TantaresSAF - GitHub (Simple Adjustable Fairings) Updating? Keep in mind that parts are sometimes deprecated (removed) when moving to newer versions of the mod. Though they will still load on existing crafts for at least one version after they are deprecated, they will not appear in the VAB and will not have textures. Frequently Asked Questions What's the situation with IVAs? Crewed capsules will get IVAs, unfortunately I just don't have the time to do IVAs for the large station parts. What's the balancing like? Parts are balanced against vanilla KSP parts to not be intentionally uselesss, this means the launch vehicles with accurate to RL proportions might seem pretty powerful, a Soyuz putting 14 tons into LKO, etc. Really the best solution for this is to use a 2.5x~ system rescale, JNSQ, or just enjoy the big payloads. I only want one thing, not the whole mod, can I prune it? Yes, when placed inside the GameData folder, open the Tantares (or other mod) folder, and within the parts subfolder, delete the spacecraft you don't want parts for. For example, if you don't want a Soyuz, delete the folder SOYUZ from Tantares/parts. Compatibility Tantares, TantaresLV, and TantaresSP have minimal dependences, but have patches to kOS compatibility. The parts in Tantares are balanced against the stock game parts. This might leave rockets feeling a bit overpowered in the vanilla KSP system. Playing in a rescaled solar system 2 to 3 times larger will make them feel much more true to real life. TantaresSAF requires Simple Adjustable Fairings. If you're using TantaresSP, one of my other mods, Neptune Camera, will add extra functionality to the camera parts.

  7. KSP 1.12.3 Restock [1.4.3] Last Updated Feb 252, 2022 Release Album It's no secret that some of KSP's artwork is not great. Placeholder art made by a number of amateur artists throughout the game's development has resulted in a scattered mess of styles and qualities which is most evident in the part artwork. Recently Squad seems to be attempting to do something to attempt to address it, but they're taking the art in a direction we stylistically disagree with and does not solve the inconsistency issues that plague the game. Because of this number of community members have come together to try to create a project that revamps KSP's art. This project has the following goals: Create a unity of design and style for all parts: In order to minimize work we'll be targeting the revised aircraft parts, which are the largest consistent block of parts. Preserve the general aesthetic of KSP: We will do our best to keep the stylings of the more iconic parts while updating quality and fidelity. Create consistency in detail level: no more 4k textures for tiny parts! Minimize performance impact: use atlasing and efficient texturing to limit the need for any kind of better hardware than base KSP. Do not affect gameplay or part balance Features About 250 revamped parts (so far!) focusing on the ones that are used most in construction New part variants where they made sense Boattail, compact and regular variants for engines Orange insulated 3.75m tanks! Gold foil-wrapped probe cores New engine effects for all engines Check out the part replacement list for it is LARGE. Asset Blacklisting Restock uses a novel method to stop KSP from loading stock assets - a blacklist file. This reduces the memory footprint of installing this mod by unloading models and textures that are not required. However, this method may break mods that depend on the stock assets. There is an easy way around this as we provide a method to whitelist files. Check the entry on the Restock Wiki for more information about this. Known Issues Please check the issues list for more information on known issues. Some mods are currently not compatible, here's the ones we know about and some fixes. RemoteTech: Some parts will need to be whitelisted, no ETA Frequently Asked Questions Q: Will this break my existing stock craft if I add/remove it? A: It will not. Q: Did you change aerodynamics/colliders/drag cubes? A: We minimized the impact as much as possible. Let us know if you have a concern. Q: I don't like what you did with XXXX. How do I get rid of it? A: We wrote a whole page about it. Q: Something broke! My mod that uses the stock assets isn't loading! A: Look at the Asset Blacklisting section above Q: Will you redo the IVAs? A: Nope. Q: Will you redo more parts? A: Yes. Q: I found a bug, what do I do? A: Stay calm. Ask here if anyone else sees it. If not, post on our Issues board with screenshots/logs/reproduction steps. Q: I see you added some more variants? Can you add more? Every part in purple? A: Nope.

DOWNLOAD MIRRORS Primary (SpaceDock) Tertiary (Github) Issue Tracking and Source KSP 1.12.3 Restock+ [1.4.3] Last Updated Feb 25, 2022 We believe that there are a number of places where KSP is missing key parts - for example, the 3.75m, 1.875m and 0.625m size classes are a little sparse. Restock+ aims to create parts that fill these niche, and is a carefully curated, fully optional project (that requires Restock to be installed of course). Release Album Here's the list of new parts. Some of these parts overlap in purpose if the Making History expansion is installed and will not show up if this is the case. Frequently Asked Questions Q: How did you choose what parts to add? A: Typically these parts are missing from size classes. 3.75m and 1.875m parts for example lack basic conveniences such as orbital engines, drone cores and batteries. Q: Will you add xxxx? A: Probably not. Q: What's going on with the Making History-like parts A: If you own Making History, the Restock+ parts that overlap with the MH parts (fuel tanks, etc), will not be added. Instead, those parts will have their art replaced. Q: I found a bug, what do I do? A: Stay calm. Ask here if anyone else sees it.

Without it I think we would still be in an age were reusability on rockets doesn't exists! @nli2work for making the legs work initially for 1.1. The setup has since been redone but it would have been much harder without that help. @DerpyFirework for contributing the "DeployableAeroSurfaces" plug-in for the grid fins. It is in the public domain and the source code can be found here. Changelog: Good luck landing stages!
  12. Introducing Konstruction! Konstruction adds new parts and game mechanics to KSP centered around base and orbital construction! Features: Weldable, configurable construction ports, with auto-rotation and configurable parameters on the fly. Once connected, these can be removed, resulting in a permanent joint between the parent parts of the two ports. Design your assembly in the VAB, cut it up and add construction ports, reassemble in-situ. Great for large bases and stations, or building larger vessels in orbit! Konstruction also includes an array of parts that can be used to create forklifts, cranes, magnetic couplers, stabilizers, etc. - ideal for building vehicles to help with in-situ assembly. If Module Manager is installed (not included till an official 1.2 version drops), the claw will have a magnetic grappler added to it automatically. Lastly, Konstruction includes the absolutely adorable Akita Rover. Small enough to fit in a Karibou cargo bay, great as a little runabout for your base. And now the important bits!

  14. Universal Storage is a modular parts mod, allowing you to build custom service modules. It is highly integrated with the most popular life support mods, DMagic Orbital Science, and Kerbal Inventory System. Part library and more information available at kingtiger.co.uk/uvsii Universal Storage II (UvSii) is the follow up to KSP’s original wedge based parts mod, Service modules are build from a central core, around which you can place various resource and processor wedges. Customization fairings complete the service module, providing aerodynamic shielding with access via payload doors. Most parts are resizable allowing increased storage capacity while keeping part counts low. New features Separate fairing parts provide full comparability with the stock aerodynamics system. Parts feature multiple height variants allowing greater capacity without bloating part count. Fairings feature multiple paint variants, allowing you to match the look of your craft. Full KSPedia articles including animated gifs. Localization support including KSPedia. Support You can post bugs and feature requests on our bitbucket issue tracker: https://bitbucket.org/uvs2/universalstorage2 Or post in this thread and we'll do our best to help you (using bitbucket makes it easier for us to help and is preferred). Download from OneDrive Use the onedrive download to access: Previous versions Beta releases Source code Balance spreadsheets and other information Download at Space Dock You can download the mod at SpaceDock. There is a separate version for KSP 1.3.1 so make sure you download the correct file. Use the changelog button on SpaceDock to view each version. Features Three step build process Service modules are built from three basic parts. The core provides the structure with space to attach payload wedges and the fairing provides aerodynamic shielding. For more information on the build process check KSPedia in game. Multiple configurations Most parts have multiple height options, allowing increased resource storage without bloating part count. Cost, mass and capacity all scale linearly so every configuration is balanced. Larger cores and fairings have multiple configurations. The cores feature a central fuel tank or a crew transfer tunnel (for use with Connected Living Space). Selected fairings can be configured as a payload bay for use without a core or wedges. Fairings can be configured to match the look of your craft, with either Porkjet, Gemini, Apollo or Saturn paint schemes. Designed to work with 3rd party mods Built from the ground up to provide resource storage for popular life support mods. The game will automatically detect which mods you have installed (via module manager) and load payload wedges to match. In addition, Universal Storage is closely linked with DMagic Orbital science to provide a large selection of wedge format science experiments when both are installed. Wedges are Kerbal Inventory System (KIS) compatible, allowing Kerbals on EVA to swap out wedges as part of a resupply mission. Compatible mods Connected Living Space DMagic Orbital Science Not currently working, Orbital Science will be updated to be compatible soon. Kerbalism Kerbal Inventory System Kerbal Operating System Snacks TAC Life Support USI Life Support KSPedia Full KSPedia support provides in-game information on the parts, their features and how to build craft. The mod includes support for animated gifs in KSPedia pages (see source code for detailed information). Career mode support The mod is fully compatible with career mode, with parts balanced against their non-wedge equivalents ensuring there are no ‘cheat’ parts. Part unlocking follows a logical progression with the majority of parts available at tier five and six. The Universal Storage Team Daishi – Nox Industrial 3D models Textures Animations A highly proficient 3D modeller and animator, Daishi has created the parts for Universal Storage and other mods on KSP. If you would like to support Daishi’s modelling work you can donate via the paypal link below. DMagic – DMagic Orbital Science Code KSPedia With 18 mods currently on SpaceDock, Dmagic is one of the games most prolific modders. Probably best know for Orbital Science, he is also the current maintainer of SCANsat and author of many other ‘quality of life improvement’ mods. Paul Kingtiger – New Horizons Original concept Research and part balancing Website Paul has created a number of minor balance mods for KSP but Universal Storage was his first large scale mod. When not playing around with KSP Paul plays Paradox grand strategy games and World of warships, as well as messing around with physical computing and restoring old electronics. Note: Paul is not actively involved in Universal Storage development at this time.

Universal Storage Source Code FAQ Nothing works like it should! Make sure you have the correct version of the mod to match your KSP install. KSP 1.3.1 and KSP 1.4 (and later) versions have different requirements. You can find and download the correct version of the mod using the links above. If you have made a mistake, Delete the Module Manager file and the Universal Storage II folder in your GameData folder and try again. Check KSPedia! Answers to the most common questions are in game via KSPedia. There is a problem with X science experiment! Universal Storage II does now contains basic science parts, which are augmented by DMagic Orbital Science, a separate mod. If you have a problem with a science part make sure you include the name so we know who to ask for help. DMagic is one the Universal Storage team so he checks this thread, alternatively you can check the Orbital Science thread for support. How do I install the mod? Download the file and unzip it. Then copy the GameData folder to your Kerbal Space Program folder, merging / overwriting any files when asked. Can I have Universal Storage and Universal Storage 2 installed together? Yes, the two mods are entirely separate and will work side by side. The parts list in the VAB will be a little cluttered, and I recommend completing any missions using the old mod, recovering the craft, then removing Universal Storage (simply delete the folder from your GameData file). You can then continue just using Universal Storage 2. How can I find the parts. The cores and fairings are found in the Payload category. Fuel tanks and Batteries are found under Fuel Tanks and Electrics. Most other parts are under Utility. However the easiest way to find the parts is to type Universal in the search box. How do I remove the mod? Simply delete the Universal Storage 2 folder in GameData. Note that any craft using parts from the mod will break, so make sure you have recovered and craft using Universal Storage II parts before removing the mod. How do I upgrade the mod? Simply download the new version and install as above, overwriting any existing files. How did you balance the parts? The original Universal Storage parts were balanced against real world craft and technology. This made for realistic parts, but many were badly balanced against other parts in game. For Universal Storage II we decided to balance parts against the stock parts in game or the various life support mods. This ensures that costs, mass and capacity are balanced against the rest of the game, so there's are no 'cheat' parts.

  17. Does right clicking your parts and seeing this make you cry? Would you rather it looked like this? Then PAWS may be the mod for you! What does it do? PAWS will add a right-click option to every part labelled "Customise PAW" - click it and you'll get a window which will allow you remove or add entries to the PAW at will. (Flight Scene only, Editor options are unaffected, as I feel like these are mainly useful). Options: Advanced Mode - there are ALOT of entries hidden in the PAW and most of them don't do anything. By default PAWS will hide entries that are not active, and you haven't interacted with them using PAWS before (so if you turn something off, you can turn it back on again) - if you turn Advanced Mode on, PAWS will stop holding your hand, and show you everything (be warned, most of these don't actually do anything or are pointless, which is why they are hidden by default). Show Fields - This shows you all the stuff that isn't a "blue button" in the PAW. Just find the entry you want, and click the handy "Toggle" button underneath it. Show Events - This shows you everything that is a "blue button" in the PAW. Just find the entry you want, and click the handy "Toggle" button underneath it. - PAWS will not let you turn it's own event off (for obvious reasons). Save Settings Globally - With this on, PAWS will remember your selections and the next time a part loads, stuff you've already turned off/on will automatically change to whatever you set it to previously (be warned, this affects all parts, so if you want to hide Reaction Wheels on one part, but not another, you should probably turn this off before clicking that button). NEW!!! - Adds the ability to input slider values manually using a text input box, rather than having to fiddle with the sliders. Known Issues [not a bug] Clicking the toggle button on an inactive option does not always mean that option will appear in the PAW. This is usually because the event is not actually active, or KSP turns it off again. This is mostly on Advanced Mode. If you turn "Save Settings Globally" off KSP will not remember your settings for next time you reload that part and you'll have to turn them all off/on again. Per-part options will be coming later.

  19. So being awake early and bored, and having counted the parts out before out of sheer boredom, I thought it would be neat to make a more visual representation of the parts parity KSP 2 has with KSP 1. This is just part 1 to see if anyone is interested in more? I just thought it was neat to see what parts are missing, and what new parts we got. As a note, the "Command Section" is missing 2 parts from KSP 1 Stock but we gained 5 new parts. So, we went from 23 parts of this type to 26. So a net gain quite literally Sections Command: Posted Above Fuel Tanks: WIP Engines: https://forum.kerbalspaceprogram.com/index.php?/topic/214189-ksp-2-parts-parity-part-deux/&do=findComment&comment=4249806 Structure: WIP Coupling: WIP Payload: WIP Aerodynamics: WIP Ground: WIP Thermal: WIP Electrical: WIP Communication: WIP Utility: WIP
  20. Remember how creating fake mods was a thing back then? Now it's time to make even more fake KSP stuff! This time, it's fake celestial bodies, rocket/spaceplane parts, and manufacturers. Btw, you can do either or both, it's up to you. My examples: Fake Celestial Body - Gerris: A planet slightly larger than Kerbin but smaller than Eve, it has green oceans, a green atmosphere, and yellowish brown land. It has aliens living on its surface. Orbits between Kerbin and Duna. Fake Part - The AEM-293 Solid Rocket Booster: A SRB that was created because we always need more boosters. Manufactured by Boosterz Co. Fake Manufacturer - Boosterz Co: A solid rocket booster manufacturer. Nuff said. Have fun making whatever your heart desires!
  21. KSP Interstellar Extended (KSPIE) is a plugin for Kerbal Space Program, designed to encourage bootstrapping toward ever more advanced levels of technology as well as utilizing In-Situ resources to expand the reach of Kerbal civilization. KSP Interstellar Extended aims to continue in @Fractal_UK original KSP Interstellar vision in providing a realistic road to the stars. Players will first gain access to contemporary technologies that have not been widely applied to real space programs such as nuclear reactors, electrical generators and thermal rockets. By continuing down the CTT tech tree and performing more research, these parts can be upgraded and later surpassed by novel new technologies such as fusion and even antimatter power. We attempt to portray both the tremendous power of these technologies as well as their drawbacks, including the tremendous difficulty of obtaining resources like antimatter and the difficulties associated with storing it safely. The goal is to reward players who develop advanced infrastructure on other planets with new, novel and powerful technologies capable of helping Kerbals explore planets in new and exciting ways. The principal goal of KSP Interstellar is to expand Kerbal Space Program with interesting technologies and to provide a logical and compelling technological progression beginning with technologies that could have been available in the 1970s/1980s, then technologies that could be available within the next few years, progressing to technologies that may not be available for many decades, all the way out to speculative technologies that are physically reasonably but may or may not ever be realizable in practice.

  22. The Art of Part Design. My modding history began in 2017 were I came across a mod from Tygoo7. I instantly fell in love with the mod and after some time I approached him asking if I could continue his fine work. Back in those days, the modding community was still relatively young and while I had some knowledge in Unity and Photoshop, my art design wasn't the greatest. During the years I have come across a lot of good people who dedicated their free time in making amazing part mods for KSP. They guided me through the appreciation of Porkjet's style and eventually to work in tandem with styles from other authors such as Nertea, Cineboxandrew and Beale, to name a few. To this day I am still critical on what I make and how it is represented in the game. I made the Tundra's Space Center mod to add new and exciting launchpads to launch from. Following the strict rules Bac9 made here: I set out to make one of the best looking pads in KSP. Fast forward to today. I am overwhelmed with how KSP2 looks. The graphics are amazing and the sounds are beautiful! KSP2 will be a good base for a whole new generation of people playing, learning and modding the game. However, things are looking a bit messy regarding the art style of parts. Specifically, the ' errors' . I know KSP2 is in a very Early Access state. I am confident that these parts will get a nice overhaul once the base systems are stable enough. But I have encountered many errors/problems with these new parts. I have made a list with all the things I have noticed. I hope these things will be addressed at some point during EA. Firstly, I'd like to address part quality assurance and standardization. As you can see here, these two parts (FL-T800 and the VL-T30 Engine) doesn't seem to align properly. This problem exists because the 1.25m fuel tank is made of 24 sides and the engine sits at 36. These inconsistencies are a problem. Many of the current 1.25m engine plates are 36 sides were as the fuel tanks are 24 sides. Command pods are at least 48 sides which isn't that big of a deal. 48 does match a little bit with 24. But I don't understand the 36 side choice. I hope this problem will be fixed in future updates. Inconsistency is key to many of the errors we will encounter in this thread. Part clipping occurs when a node is too low regarding the surface of the part. As you can see here, the TVR-1180C clips through the FL-T800 fuel tank. The height of the node from the TVR-1180C should be increased so both seams are matching and we have a flush part! Another problem is that the Bi-coupler version (TVR-200) doesn't match the dimensions of the fuel tank. Resulting in the ring being bigger. These are just some of the findings from the first hour of playing the game. Many of these imperfections are easy to fix and should be addressed. However, there is more! Taking a closer look at the end caps for the adapters, one in particular stands out. The 1.25m to 2.5m adapter's end cap seems to be rotated at an odd angle: There seems to be a gap when attaching a part under the MK1 Explorer: The MK2 Tuna Can top node is not centered: Good textures are key to many parts success. When we take a look at a lot of popular, larger part mods, every single part is carefully crafted with consistent texel density, ranging from 300ppm to 600ppm for really detailed parts. When I take a look at KSP2, many parts are inconsistent regarding texel density. I simply don't understand why some of these are higher quality than others. I have a feeling that there doesn't seem to be a standard in many of these design choices. If I was an art director, I would have had a list with checkboxes that every single part needs to meet in order to be in the game. I know, for example, when ReStock was developed a rigorous testing process was made against each part to ensure that it met a high quality. These areas included: Localization Tags Holes in Mesh Model Mesh Issue (Missing structure etc.) Collider Issue Model Orientation in VAB Node Placement Part attachment to other parts (stack/radial) Texture Issue (Diffuse/Normals/Mirroring etc.) Model/Texture Alignment Issue Emissives Issue Animation Issue FX Issue Sound Issue Thrust Transforms (Torque) Shroud/Fairing Issue Gimbal (Animation and Structure) Variants Working (Resources, Model etc) Specific PartModule Issue Aesthetical Design Issue Generic Improvement Comment IVA Issue Balance Issue (RS+) The texture files can use some optimization too. I noticed a lot of UV maps that could be stacked and reducing the space needed on a sheet. For example, the FL-T800 uses two textures for the top and bottom half of the tank. This is a great example of stacking the UV maps on top of each other so they use 1 texture for both sides. I hope that the community will list more down in this thread. That so we can keep everything neat in one place regarding the aesthetics of parts.
