  1. Download on Curseforge or Github or SpaceDock. Also available on CKAN. KerbGuise Experimental engineering (KGEx) Brings you: The Gold Standard (TGS) Adopted for curation by @zer0Kerbal, originally by @Dewar This mod adds the pursuit of gold and an extremely rare resource called Unobtainium to the game! This resource part mod adds eight new parts and adds functionality to several stock parts in Kerbal Space Program. Preamble by @Dewar: Now with SMX support! Now with full SCANsat and Galileo's Planet Pack Compatibility!) This mod adds the pursuit of gold and an extremely rare resource called Unobtainium to the game! Gold Ore now appears on planets/moons Gold Ore can be mined and smelted into Pure Gold with the Smelter Return either Gold/Gold Ore back to Kerbin for profit Gold is heavier than Gold Ore, which is heavier than Ore Full integration with Vanilla drills and scanners Vanilla Drills and Surface Scanner available slightly earlier in the tech tree Only 8 parts (just over 3Mb download), low memory usage. Get over that mid-career fund grind in a fun and challenging way! What is Unobtainium? Unobtainium is an extremely valuable resource that generally spawns on high-G and extremely distant worlds. You can mine Unobtainium using the vanilla drills without needing a converter in-situ. Drills mining Unobtainium operate much more efficiently with both a scientist and engineer aboard. Unobtainium is a little more dense than gold, so ensure to bring adequate Dv! Finally a monetary reason to land on Eeloo, Eve, Moho/Icarus, or any of the other seldom visited worlds! This mod is not meant to be an easy cash cow; rather, a difficult alternative to contract spam. There is no gold on Kerbin, and be careful when choosing a mining site as only deposits of >2% (mini drill) or >1.5% (large drill) will yield gold ore. The gold ore can be returned for an okay-ish profit, but be aware that gold ore is basically 9/10s ore. So there are obvious benefits to smelting in-situ. The Smelter needs power, cooling, and an engineer to function at its full capacity. Pure Gold is, by design and IRL, HEAVY! Feel free to post any working ship/base designs! Note on returning with your space booty: Land near or on the space center to avoid diminished returns. Cabin notes: WIP - work in progress Am open to adding one more resource beyond Kerbin's influence, great project for someone! Community Tech Tree integration and Tech Tree Balancing (need feedback) Further Weight/Cost Balancing (need feedback) I have not personally tested the patches Have a request? Glad to have them, kindly submit through GitHub. See the README in the Localization folder for instructions for adding or improving translations for languages other than English.

  2. 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 - SpaceDock Tantares - GitHub (Earth Orbit Spacecraft) TantaresLV - Spacedock TantaresLV - GitHub (Launch Vehicles and Upper Stages) TantaresSP - Spacedock 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.

  3. KSP 1.12.x Stockalike Station Parts Expansion Redux [2.0.5] Last Updated October 3, 2021 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: 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.

See the readme! They were hugely helpful in debugging, writing patches, IVA prop placing and so much more during development. If you appreciate this project, please consider contributing to my caffeine addiction! I really appreciate it, and also helps justify this time sink to my wife , which results directly in more models.
  4. Starship 2021 Design (S20) Hello! This is the first time I work on a KSP mod, so pls be gentle @DylanSemrau told me a few times I should post the mod on the forums so here it is! A Starship mod with the 2021 design! Right now the mod is still very incomplete, it only has the Ship part of it and even that is still missing a lot of details like COPVs, some piping on the nose and the rVac mounts. Down below you can see all the current features, screenshots, compatibility, dependencies and a longer description about me and mod. First of all, here's a little event I did on my KaioSpace youtube channel when I first released the mod for my Patrons to test: Screenshots: Dependencies: TundraExploration is required for the flaps to function. TexturesUnlimited is required for you to see the shiny metal. Recommended: CryoEngines - For more accurate Raptor replicas until I make my own. I'd recommend using the LF/Ox patch OR the patch I include in the Extras folder of the .zip so you can use it with my ship until I have tank fuel configs. Waterfall - For the raptor exhaust plumes. HullCameraVDS & NeptuneCamera - For the FlapCam/WindwardCam/DownwardCam if you want to do fancy videos. StarshipLaunchExpansion - For the suborbital clamp and launch tower. Kari's Starship Expansion Project - If you need a booster that fits with my starship until I release my own, Tundra's works but needs extra manual fitting. (I tested it) Installation: Place the KaioSpace folder in the zip file inside the KSP GameData folder. Launch the game! Yup, should be that simple. When the mod is on CKAN all you have to do is select and install. Extras Included: In the Extras folder of the .zip you have extra configs to place inside the KaioSpace/Patches folder of my mod. Extra_CryoEngines_Gimbal.cfg - Makes the CryoEngines raptor have the gimbal range of the real one & tweaks the mass slightly. Extra_CryoEngines_FuelSwitch.cfg - Adds an option to switch the fuel type of the engines and also gives them some stats for Methane like the 380isp of the rVac etc. I have not made a craft file for it yet, but if you're familiar with other Starship mods it should work very similarly. You get an extra option to toggle the vents with an action group on the nose and tank section. I recommend that you set the nosecone to lower fuel Flow Priority so the header tank remains full until its really needed, also balances the weight better on descent. There's no configs for different tank propellants yet or any compatibility for RO/RSS. Not my priority until the mod is mostly finished. Features usually get released to patreon first and later I will make a public release once all testing is done. The next phase (2.0) will likely be the SuperHeavy Booster. NOTE: Starship S20 does NOT have legs so I didn't model any and likely wont until we have a new design at Starbase. If you want to use legs you can use Tundra's legs for the time being. You just need to do some weird symmetry because S20+ has a new skirt design. Download: Spacedock (& CKAN) | Dev Versions: Patreon Roadmap: Trello License: MIT About Me & Mod: I'm Erito. I'm a 3D artist who has been making renders for a while and had the pleasure of joining a group of other Spaceflight artists who have been helping me improve. Since last year I've been addicted to Starship's development and I had the idea to make this mod in January but stopped because I wasn't making any progress learning (because quite honestly the documentation for modding isn't.. very friendly for new devs, but that's a rant for another day). About 2 months ago I restarted the project and here we are. I very regularly post updates on Twitter and my Discord about the mod, tho keep in mind if you join my discord I'm extremely strict with my rules, no memes, only Starship/3D modeling/Chill talk, and I'm also known for not dealing well with younger audiences.

  7. I present to you my first parts mod, Bumblebee! A (re)stockalike mod based on NASA's Dragonfly drone, designed to explore Titan-like worlds! Includes a black colour scheme too: album: https://imgur.com/a/lFNv9dI Build Guide: https://github.com/Rodg88/BumbleBee/wiki/Build-Guide Video review from Kottabos: Features include: * Small electric propellers that use @Angel-125's KerbalActuators to give them spinning blades, mirroring, prop blur, and a hover mode. * An antenna that tracks the homeworld (in one axis at least) * A large science payload, including compatibility for some Bluedog Design Bureau and Coatl Probes Plus experiments if those mods are installed. * Compatibility for Near Future Electrical, the probe core will include a large capacitor if installed, to increase flight range. * A parachute/drogue combo with "fancy custom normals", that plug into the 2.5m aerodynamic back shell (which is designed to fit the Restock heat shield), or can be surface attached as a drogue/main set Download: https://spacedock.info/mod/2428/Bumblebee https://github.com/Rodg88/BumbleBee/releases Also on CKAN V0.6 Updated deps and tested in KSP 1.12.2 Fixed prop sound on high power mode Fixed colliders on decoupler causing sticky aeroshell deployment Merge PR for Interstellar Extended support (thanks Shimomeitakatote) V0.5 Added variants to the decoupler with 0.625m and 1.25m bottom diameter rings, instead of just the specialized Bumblebee decoupler. Updated Indicator Lights patch to take advantage of new features in v1.7 (commnet connection indicator). V0.4 Added gold and silver foil textures to the Core, Antenna, RTG, and science Sensor. Updated all lenses to have a new reflective texture. Added carbon texture variant to prop parts. V0.3 New dual rotor part for light probes in light atmospheres, based on the NASA Mars Helicopter. Also a long variant of the single truss for the Duna rotor. Added Surface Sample experiment to the landing skid part (requires the Bumblebee Probe core on the same craft to work) Minor fixes to other parts. V0.2: Updated Prop parts. They now activate on Duna, but won't do you much good. Also enabled surface attachment on the single prop, and added ground FX. Also a low power mode for precision flight on low gravity moons. Added glowing LEDs, with compatibility for NFE (blue LED's brightness = capaciter charge) and Indicator Lights (Top Green LED goes yellow/red on low/critical charge). Added Hullcam Patch Download includes B9 Part Switch, Kerbal Actuators, CommunityResourcePack, and DMagicScienceAnimate, which are the hard dependencies, as well as CommunityCategoryKit which is optional (parts all appear in the Rover category).

  8. KSP 1.12.2 Restock [1.4.2] Last Updated August 12, 2021 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.x Restock+ [1.4.0] Last Updated July 20, 2021 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.

  10. Shadow Space Technologies Unlimited - Labs Division This is the public discussion thread for ongoing development of SSTU parts and plugin code. Downloads: The latest versions may be found at: http://www.curse.com/ksp-mods/kerbal/241283-sstu-shadow-space-technologies-unlimited And are also available on Github: https://github.com/shadowmage45/SSTULabs/releases (Github will always be more up-to-date than curse, as they are auto-published there; I have to manually update Curse; so please check the GitHub link if you are looking for the latest versions) Please keep in mind that these are all testing releases. Things may break between releases. There will be bugs. Many things are unfinished and/or unoptimized. The test versions are for ironing out bugs in new features and for testing out prototype parts before they are finished; as such they will always have bugs, often severe, and there will often be unfinished parts (no textures, missing features, etc). Please only use these versions if you wish to contribute to testing and are comfortable with the state of the releases. Wiki (WIP): https://github.com/shadowmage45/SSTULabs/wiki Contribution: IVA Modeling: SSTU could greatly use someone with interest and experience in modeling IVAs. If you think you are that person, please contact Shadowmage through PM to work out the details. Testing: If you would like to contribute to pre-release testing (and get to try things out in their pre-release state), please follow the link above; the most recent test version will be at the top. Please submit issue reports for any problems you encounter via the GitHub issues tracker: https://github.com/shadowmage45/SSTULabs/issues (If you do not report the issue there, it will not be resolved; issues posted in the thread or through PMs will be forgotten about and likely never fixed; so please, do the organized thing and use the bug-tracker). Configs/Patches: I welcome pull requests and contributions for adding patches for mod compatibility, adding new part configs, or fixing issues in existing part configs. Documentation: One very major part of the mod that could greatly benefit from public contributions is the Wiki: https://github.com/shadowmage45/SSTULabs/wiki While this is the 'dev version' wiki, I will be using it to form the basis of the public release wiki; so any/all information and details that can be filled in now will be transferred over to the public release repository and wiki when it is created. Feedback, suggestions, comments, etc: Please feel free to post feedback, suggestions, questions, etc regarding development releases and/or any posted previews. Even if you are not on the testing team, I still value your feedback and suggestions. Please use the issue tracker for any 'official' feature requests; it may be found at: https://github.com/shadowmage45/SSTULabs/issues Bug Reports: Please submit issue reports for any problems you encounter via the GitHub issues tracker: https://github.com/shadowmage45/SSTULabs/issues. No other method for submitting bugs will be supported; posts on the forum or through PM will be forgotten about before I can ever get to them. Opening up a ticket ensures that your report does not get lost in the forum or forgotten about. No ticket = no fix. Enough with the disclaimers, and onto the parts! The Parts: The goal of SSTU is to provide low-part count, CPU-efficient parts for common uses. To this end many of the parts are designed with additional integrated functionality beyond the base functions, for instance integrating RCS ports and engine(s) into a fully fledged service module. I have tried to maintain a stock-compatible appearance, though as I am not an artist or modeler (at least not by training/profession), how well this has worked out is subject to opinion. Master list of parts; current, planned, the whole lot: https://github.com/shadowmage45/SSTULabs/wiki/Parts---Master-List Ship Core: Engines A set of engines in many varieties, including pre-built engine clusters. Many more engines, mounting options, and cluster designs will be added over time. Ship Core: Series A A set of parts modeled after the Soyuz CSM stack. Includes Orbital Module, Descent Module, Service Module, and LAS. Ship Core: Series B A set of parts modeled after the Apollo CSM stack. Includes two command modules (one with integrated heatshield and parachutes), launch abort system, and Apollo-inspired service module. Ship Core: Series C A series of parts heavily inspired by and based on current NASA - SLS project. Includes representations of SLS upper stack initial configuration, and lifter parts designed in the vein of the lower/core portions. The upper stack is designed to allow for a low-part-count manned orbiter setup, while the lower-stack parts are intended for super-heavy-lift capabilities. Command module and upper-stack are 3.75m, while the lower-stack lifter parts are 5m. Ship Core: General A line of generic / utility parts. Fairings, RCS, Science experiments, and procedural decouplers of various types. Includes a full line of configurable/dynamic fuel tank parts in standard cylinder, sphere, R-7 booster (integrated decoupler), and upper-stage (integrated rcs) form factors. Includes a full set of truss based cargo bay modules. Also includes a full line of interstage fairings and petal adapters, and standard payload fairings. (Many parts not shown in album) Lander Core A series of parts specially crafted to enable low-part-count non-atmospheric lander designs for use in the stock Kerbol system. Station Core A line parts for low-part-count station use. Includes inflatable Bigelow-inspired inflatable modules, inflatable centrifuge modules, ISS inspired habitat and lab modules, and a line of TKS/DOS inspired single-part station cores (integrated solar, engines, rcs, docking ports, sas). Also includes a full line of stand-alone solar panels and a 'welding' docking port. (Album not yet available) Craft Files None currently available, will possibly start becoming available when the mod has reached a stable state (not for the foreseeable future). Additional Addon Compatibility and Integration RealPlume -- Optional but highly recommended. SSTU includes a set of patches for RealPlume for all engines as well as most other engine-enabled parts. More will be added over time. Stock effects are also included, but options and configuration for those are much more limited. If you want pretty-looking exhaust effects, get RealPlume. MechJeb -- If MechJeb2 is installed, Command Pods (and some service modules) include a built-in MJ module. The tech-unlocks for these are based on the default MJ tech-settings. Kerbal Joint Reinforcement -- As of KSP 1.2+, KRJ is no longer necessary, as the stock Auto-Struts can eliminate most of the wobbles. Might still have utility on extremely large craft designs, but should no longer be nearly-mandatory. USI-LS -- Patches for most parts are included, and will be enabled when the requisite mods are installed. These patches add a few days worth of life-support to each of the pods and some of the service modules. (WIP, needs updating) TAC-LS -- Some patches are included. Not up to date, and not all parts are patched. ConnectedLivingSpace - A simple CLS patch is included to add CLS passability to all SSTU crewed parts. FAR - Unsupported. You are on your own if you choose to use FAR. Any problems involving FAR needs to be brought up in the FAR thread. RO/RSS - Unsupported. Take any support requests regarding RO to the RO threads. KR&D - Known to be incompatible. Some config edits can be made to allow them to work in the same install, but KR&D cannot adjust stats on most SSTU parts. Introductory video by MrMeeb Known Issues IVAs - Many are incomplete. WIP. They'll be finished 'eventually'. Textures - Many unfinished textures.

  11. KerbalFoundries - Continued Re-inventing the wheel. Literally. This is the main release and development thread for the continuation of KerbalFoundries, originally created by Lo-Fi and Gaalidas, continued under new development with explicit permissions from the original authors and under the terms of the original licensing. This mod adds a variety of new parts to KSP that include wheels, tracks, and anti-gravity repulsors. For a list of features available to the wheels and tracks in this mod, please see the KSPWheels documentation ( https://github.com/shadowmage45/KSPWheel/wiki ). Currently included are four wheel models, eight track models, three repulsor models, a single skid/ski, a single screw-drive, and three adjustable aircraft landing gear. Tweakscale is not needed or supported for the wheel or track parts (though you should be able to have it installed without problem, the wheels will not use TS for scaling). Scaling of the parts is accomplished through the KSPWheel plugin's native scaling support, and includes configurable scale powers for all scaled variables (rpm, load handling, motor power output) (in the in-game difficulty menu). Many options are available and configurable through the stock in-game difficulty options menu. Look for KSPWheel and all of the options will be under that tab, including scaling powers and damage model adjustments.

Including a few more 'lander' styled. * Additional landing gear variants. Single-wheeled straight gear, multi-wheeled side-deploy gear, large cargo-airliner styled multi-wheel deployable gear. * Recoloring configurations for TU; mask textures, normalization parameters or masks, texture set configs, and updates to the patches to enable recoloring. These will likely be an additional texture set that utilizes the existing textures alongside the newly provided mask textures.

BREAKING GROUND IS NEEDED FOR THE ROTATING VTOL ENGINES. As I can't build complex internals yet, it uses a slightly modified Harrier IVA from Cold War Aerospace and the license reflects that. Prebuilt craft within the SPH folder that is in the main folder. SORRY, FORGOT TO MENTION. THE COCKPIT,TAIL AND WINGTIPS ALL HAVE BUILTIN RCS AND THE COCKPIT CREATES MONOPROPELLANT TO KEEP THEM TOPPED UP. Gear, Toggle wing wheel hinges. 1,Toggle engines on/off. 2,Toggle transition from vertical to forward thrust. 5,Toggle ladders. EVA is right side. 6,Toggle hinge lock for wing wheels. Custom 1, Adjust thrust limit of front engines for a bit more forward thrust, just make sure to revert them to 45 for hovering and landing VTOL. These are cruise engines and have a spool time, so make sure you adjust ahead of time and let them catch up or you will have a very hard landing. Over 2 thirds throttle to take off and then as soon as you do drop it just under 2 thirds and tilt the nose down 5 degrees to get forward momentum before transitioning.
  14. NOTE: KSP 1.4 (either full release or latest pre-release, or 1.4.X) is required for SpaceY 1.17 or later. SpaceY Heavy-Lifter Parts Pack Required Dependencies: ModuleManager Cooperates with other mods: TweakScale FAR / NEAR AVC (Add-on Version Checker) Engine Ignitor Community Tech Tree HotRockets! DefaultActionGroups (To enable automatic toggling of SAS light on radial reaction wheels) as of version 1.10 IndicatorLights Part of the NecroBones suite of mods, that work nicely together: Modular Rocket Systems (stock-alike parts pack, NASA-like alternatives, and filling the gaps) SpaceY Heavy Lifters Parts Pack (stock-balanced large rocket parts, 5m parts, large SRBs) Color Coded Canisters (replacement models/textures for stock fuel tanks: prettier, cleaner, and diameter color-coding for the tank end-caps) Fuel Tanks Plus (collection of large stock-like tanks with Color Coded Canister style) ColorFuel Lines (color-selctable fuel lines) Lithobrake Exploration Technologies (lander parts, large chutes/legs/ladders/etc) Do you want more parts!? If you do, you can also install SpaceY Expanded with even more parts, and 7.5m diameter! Contains several unusual or unique features, including some "firsts": Engines with multiple sized fairings, or with conical fairings. Engine clusters with mode-switching for activating/deactivating nozzle groups. Rocket-assisted radial decouplers. Stack size adapters with multiple target diameters (adaptive shrouds). Docking ports with guide-lights. Fuel tanks with automatic shrouds. Thrust plates and adapters with fairings. "Petal" cargo bay. Author: NecroBones Special Thanks: NBZ, for lots of input, ideas, part names, and art feedback. Akira_R & 4nxs, for their HotRockets configuration work to add variation between vacuum/atmo effects. And many others for bug reports and feedback! --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- SpaceY Lifters is a parts pack that is intended to extend the stock line-up of parts for lifting heavy payloads to orbit, by providing a similar update to the NASA/ARM pack from 0.23.5, in the next size up. It provides a range of 5m fuel tanks and engines, a fueled 3.75m nose-cone, both "stack" and "radial" decouplers, a fueled size adapter, large docking ports, adaptive size adapters, upper-stage thrust plates with shrouds, and a range of powerful SRBs. The name is a play on "SpaceX" in the real world, but also has the amusing double connotations of being "spacey", and also "Space, why?" -- Because it's there! All of the models and textures were made 100% from scratch, using Blender, Photoshop, and Unity. Design Goals: Maintain a "pretty", but still mostly stock-alike appearance. While KW goes a long way toward realism, we want to have a smaller pack that blends nicely with stock, and other stock-alike packs. While extending the stock game, try to maintain a gameplay balance with stock. Stay memory efficient. Similar parts attempt to share the same textures (currently ALL fuel tanks use just one texture). And do so while adding: Another layer of large rocketry, beyond the 3.75m ARM/NASA update that was added in KSP 0.23.5. Specifically, 5m parts. Large SRB options with high thrust and shorter burn times than the NASA/ARM SRB. Large rocketry utilities-- Big radial decouplers with thrusters built in, larger sepratron, big docking ports, etc. Possible future plans? Bigger engine/tank parts? (7.5m for instance) More SRB types? LFBs? (Liquid Fuel Boosters) More decoupler types? More multi-way adapter pieces? --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Image Gallery: (Note that the stats, appearances, and descriptions of the parts shown below are subject to change, or may be out of date) --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Parts Inventory: (as of version 0.17, 2015-06-18) Do you want more parts!? If you do, you can also install SpaceY Expanded with even more parts, and 7.5m diameter! --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Installation Instructions: 1. If upgrading from a previous copy, it's recommended to delete the old "SpaceY-Lifters" folder first. 2. Backup your "saves" folder! While not required for installing mods, it's a good idea anyway. If any parts you have already used (including stock parts) fail to load, you'll have ships getting deleted! 3. Download and open the ZIP file. 4. Copy the "SpaceY-Lifters" folder into your "GameData" folder. 5. If upgrading, check your designs in the VAB/SPH. If attachment nodes have changed, you may need to reposition parts. Troubleshooting: Problem: Fuel tanks or SRBs flash different colors, with glitchy "z-fighting": Usually it boils down to one of a few different things. Now that I've seen probably most of them, I can give you a good list: 1. Everything is installed correctly, but ModuleManager's cache hasn't noticed the changes yet. Fix: This is a great one to try first. Delete the file called "ModuleManager.ConfigCache" in GameData. ModuleManager recreates it on the next KSP start. 2. ModuleManager isn't installed. Fix: Install it. 3. This mod is installed incorrectly, or you've deleted the color-change ModuleManager configs. Fix: Reinstall the mod correctly, and in its entirety. The MM config files include rules for what to do when color-changing isn't available, so please don't delete those. 4. Firespitter and/or InterstellarFuelSwitch are installed, but not functioning. Fix: The most likely cause is that the version of FS or IFS doesn't work with your version of KSP (for instance, you upgraded to KSP 1.1, and the mod is meant for 1.0.5 or earlier), or your copy is only partially installed. Delete it, and install the latest version of it. 5. ModuleManager thinks color-changing is available via Firespitter or InterstellarFuelSwitch, but neither is installed. Fix: This is a little trickier to pinpoint. Either another mod has bad rules in it (for instance using "FOR[Firespitter]" instead of "NEEDS[Firespitter]") and is therefore tricking ModuleManager, or one of these two mods is only partially installed. That could happen if you removed them via CKAN but the directories still exist, which ModuleManager will see as having them installed. To fix, either make sure both of those mods are completely uninstalled, or install one (or both) of them. Only the DLL from one of them is needed, you don't need the entire mod. But it needs to be running if ModuleManager thinks its there. 6. It's possible that another mod may be confused that changes how VAB/SPH tweakables or engine shrouds work. This is an odd case, but not impossible. When you don't have Firespitter or InterstellarFuelSwitch installed, the alternate paint jobs are disabled by turning them into "engine shrouds" that correspond to an attachment node that is a kilometer outside the VAB. If another mod interferes with this, such as defaulting all shrouds to "on" even when detached, then you might also see z-fighting. Sadly, the solution might be to simply not use the mods together. Problem: Textures are missing and you're seeing a lot magenta (purple/pink): 1. Files may be missing, or not where the mod is expecting to find them. Fix: Make sure you've installed the mod correctly, in its entirety, and in the right location. Don't rename folders. You can try completely deleting the mod and reinstalling (which is the best way to update the mod anyway). Also make sure the mod's dependencies are installed (SpaceY Expanded requires SpaceY Lifters, for instance). 2. ActiveTextureManagement is goofing it up. Fix: Either remove ATM, or try deleting ATM's cache. ATM frequently has cache issues that cause problems for texture reassignment across folder boundaries. ATM doesn't help as much as it used to, now that stock KSP and most mods use DDS texture format. We've included configs to try to stop ATM from processing this mod's folder, but that may not be working either. Problem: Engine exhaust plumes are missing: Cause: ModuleManager thinks that HotRockets is installed, but it actually isn't. Fix 1: Install HotRockets so that it's a non-issue. Fix 2: Go into the SpaceY folder(s) and delete "SpaceY_HotRockets.cfg". This will keep it from trying to use the HotRockets plumes. Fix 3: Figure out which other mod is causing the confusion, and remove it. We still don't know which mods are causing this, but it's probably due to someone using a "FOR" statement in their MM config instead of "NEEDS". --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Download From: SpaceDock -or- Curse.com download page -or- ksp.necrobones.com --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Creative Commons 4.0 Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike CC BY-NC-SA --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Change History: 1.17.1 (2018-04-02) - KSP 1.4 update. - Corrected a copy/paste mistake in color-changing config. 1.17 (2018-04-02) - KSP 1.4 update. - Reworked color-changing to use KSP 1.4's mesh switcher. - Flag decals disabled for now, since the stock mesh switcher doesn't play nicely with them. - Disabled auto-caps on tanks, due to KSP bugs over several versions. - Changed ModularFuelTanks config to use consolidated wildcard patch. - Added some wildcards to TweakScale config. 1.16 (2017-01-30) - SRB Update. - Corrected smoke emitter location on the 3.75m SRB, 21m length. - Added a 30m long 3.75m SRB. - Added a 29m long 2.5m SRB. 1.15.1 (2017-01-03) - Compatibility Update. - Added "NEEDS" conditionals for ConnectedLivingSpace and EngineIgnitor patches, to clean up log spam. - EngineIgnitor patches moved to their own file in the patches folder. - Added "NEEDS" conditionals for Engineering Tech Tree compatibility. 1.15 (2016-10-21) - Update. - Added new RCS sounds/effects. - Added a linear RCS thruster. - Updated OMS engines to use new RCS sounds and effects. - Added two adapters that can be used with the Rose/Rosette adapter center slots. - Updated custom part category with recent additions from here and SpaceY Expanded. - Added some missing search tags on thrust plates / adapters. 1.14 (2016-10-12) - More KSP 1.2 Compatibility & Fixes. - Landing legs should now work in the Landing Gear action group automatically again. - 5m Fairing base null reference exception corrected, and is available again. - Names adjusted on some thrust plates / adapters. - Version changed to 1.14 to make it more clear this is a significant 1.2 update. 1.13.2 (2016-10-10) - Basic KSP 1.2 Compatibility. - Added KSP 1.2 and KerbNet modules to probe cores. - Landing leg suspension disabled until a 1.2 solution can be found. - Using ModuleAnimateGeneric for the time being, so legs can still be used. - Will need an Action Group, or the Default Action Groups mod, for best results. - Categories adjusted for several parts, corresponding to 1.2 changes. 1.13.1 (2016-08-01) - Tweaks. - Icon-only shroud added to fairing base, for easy identification in menu. - 5m conical bay added to custom parts tab. - Added MM "NEEDS" conditionals to RemoteTech modules in probe cores, and moved to separate patch file. - Deadly Reentry patch file renamed to sort properly in the folder. - Added a compatibility exclusion for HPTechTree. 1.13 (2016-06-08) - Update. - Adapters and Thrust Plates marked as passable for Connected Living Space so that they can be used for station construction, and docking ports, etc. - Added 5m/3.75m conical payload bay. - Adjusted the "hide if empty" rules for the tech nodes. 1.12.9 (2016-05-31) - Hotfix. - Massive Rocketry/Structure tech nodes are now set to be hidden if empty. - Fixed a harmless mistake in the MM patches, as part of its self cleanup. 1.12.8 (2016-05-31) - Tweaks. - Adjusted some nickname tags on engines. - Minor tech tree and config changes in MM patches.

If you are upgrading from 0.9 or earlier, be sure to delete the mod's folder from GameData before installing the new version. Savegames with active ships using the fairings will not be compatible across this transition (you could do a lot of hand-editing if you wish, as the same sizes still exist). Upgrading should be safe if no ships are currently using the fairings. IMPORTANT NOTE: This is an EARLY BETA -- That means there's a good chance that the parts will change significantly, and may break your save-games. We're looking for feedback, and have released version 0.1 of this pack after working on it for less than 2 days. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 5-Minute quick overview: Overview/Tutorial by KottabosGames: --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Advantages and Features: All fairings support INLINE use, meaning that you can continue the rocket stack above them (such as an exposed command section, or another fairing + payload). Contains only three texture files (base, panels, and cone) shared by all models, so memory usage is light. Contains no mod code, instead relying entirely on the stock engine-fairing modules. This means the mod is unlikely to break when new KSP versions are released, or introduce any new bugs. Ejected panels are non-persistent debris (meaning they are deleted when you move out of physics range or use timewarp). Low additional part-count for your ships. Fairings are created by placing a single part (the base), and possibly a second (nose cone). Stock-alike appearance. Cooperates with other mods, including TweakScale, FAR/NEAR, and AVC. Choice between "full" pack (22 parts), or "Lite" version (6 parts). Disadvantages: (to be fair) Adds a large number of parts to the Aerodynamics tab Not as "pretty" as KW Rocketry Not as "easy" as Procedural Fairings. Fairings are restricted to the included sizes (unless you use TweakScale) Known Issues: Placing an engine as the first part above the fairings (at the "floating node", not the base) will result in a "ghost shroud", when the fairing panels are decoupled. This is just how the stock decoupler/jettison modules work in KSP. Don't worry, those shrouds are non-colliding. If you're using an engine that leaves behind a shroud and this bothers you, the recommended work-around is to place a stack decoupler/separator at the top of the fairing, instead of the engine directly. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Information: This parts pack is intended to supply an alternate means of using payload fairings in KSP. It's meant to be somewhat stock-alike, and also provide the capability of having inline payloads, with a second vehicle ahead of the fairing section. As a real world example, the Apollo Saturn V had the lander inside a fairing, with the command/service module exposed and ahead of it in the stack. These fairings use the stock game's fairing jettison module, functioning like the LV-N engine's ejectable fairings. All of the models and textures were made 100% from scratch, using Blender, Photoshop, and Unity. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Image Gallery: (Note that the stats, appearances, and descriptions of the parts shown below are subject to change, or may be out of date) --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Installation: Simply copy the "0PinlineFairings" folder into your GameData folder. If upgrading from a previous version, be sure to delete the old one from GameData first (this is the cleanest option). NOTE: ALWAYS backup your save-games when changing mods! If any parts fail to load (including the stock parts, which can fail to load due to a typo in a mod config), entire ships can be deleted out of your game. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Usage instructions: 1. Build your internal payload first. 2. Don't forget a decoupler on the bottom of the payload! 3. Attach one of the fairing bases beneath the decoupler. (Be careful to choose one that is both wide and tall enough) 4. Build your second vehicle above the fairing, or cap it off with a nose-cone. (Do so by placing your parts on the "floating" attachment node above) 5. If you are stacking an engine right above the fairing (at the "floating node", not the base), you might consider placing a stack-separator here first, to hold the engine-shroud upon decoupling. Otherwise you will get a "ghost shroud" that hovers in place (due to how the shroud jettison works in stock KSP). 6. Your fairing panels will appear automatically upon stacking a part on the floating node. 7. Build the rest of your lifter stages as normal. The fairings will act as a decoupler for the top of the rocket stack, and will separate at the "floating node" where you continued the stack above (or capped it with a nose cone). --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Download the FULL VERSION: (Contains all 7 fairing sizes (4 lengths each) plus 7 specialized nose cones) SpaceDock -or- Curse.com download page -or- ksp.necrobones.com (( 1.0 and later versions ARE NOT COMPATIBLE with 0.9 and earlier!

SpaceY Expanded Optional Parts Add-On for SpaceY-Lifters SpaceY Expanded is an optional expansion to the SpaceY Heavy Lifters, adding 7.5m parts and other accessories that go beyond the original intent of the original main pack.

CryoEgines Connected Living Space ModuleManager (for mild customization of the tech tree) Part of the NecroBones suite of mods, that work nicely together: Modular Rocket Systems (stock-alike parts pack, NASA-like alternatives, and filling the gaps) SpaceY Heavy Lifters Parts Pack (stock-balanced large rocket parts, 5m parts, large SRBs) Color Coded Canisters (replacement models/textures for stock fuel tanks: prettier, cleaner, and diameter color-coding for the tank end-caps) Fuel Tanks Plus (collection of large stock-like tanks with Color Coded Canister style) ColorFuel Lines (color-selctable fuel lines) Lithobrake Exploration Technologies (lander parts, large chutes/legs/ladders/etc) --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Image Gallery: (Note that the stats, appearances, and descriptions of the parts shown below are subject to change, or may be out of date) --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Future updates: All sorts of things are possible, so who knows? Some ideas for additional parts: 3.75m, 5m, and 7.5m cargo/service bays More RCS, OMS options, both for monoprop and LFO Additional launch clamp designs Who knows? --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Installation Instructions: 1. If upgrading from a previous copy, it's recommended to delete the old "SpaceY-Expanded" folder first. 2. Backup your "saves" folder! While not required for installing mods, it's a good idea anyway. If any parts you have already used (including stock parts) fail to load, you'll have ships getting deleted! 3. Download and open the ZIP file. 4. Copy the "SpaceY-Expanded" folder into your "GameData" folder. 5. Make sure you have up-to-date copies of Module Manager, and SpaceY-Lifters installed. 6. If upgrading, check your designs in the VAB/SPH. If attachment nodes have changed, you may need to reposition parts. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Troubleshooting: Problem: Fuel tanks or SRBs flash different colors, with glitchy "z-fighting": Usually it boils down to one of a few different things. Now that I've seen probably most of them, I can give you a good list: 1. Everything is installed correctly, but ModuleManager's cache hasn't noticed the changes yet. Fix: This is a great one to try first. Delete the file called "ModuleManager.ConfigCache" in GameData. ModuleManager recreates it on the next KSP start. 2. ModuleManager isn't installed. Fix: Install it. 3. This mod is installed incorrectly, or you've deleted the color-change ModuleManager configs. Fix: Reinstall the mod correctly, and in its entirety. The MM config files include rules for what to do when color-changing isn't available, so please don't delete those. 4. Firespitter and/or InterstellarFuelSwitch are installed, but not functioning. Fix: The most likely cause is that the version of FS or IFS doesn't work with your version of KSP (for instance, you upgraded to KSP 1.1, and the mod is meant for 1.0.5 or earlier), or your copy is only partially installed. Delete it, and install the latest version of it. 5. ModuleManager thinks color-changing is available via Firespitter or InterstellarFuelSwitch, but neither is installed. Fix: This is a little trickier to pinpoint. Either another mod has bad rules in it (for instance using "FOR[Firespitter]" instead of "NEEDS[Firespitter]") and is therefore tricking ModuleManager, or one of these two mods is only partially installed. That could happen if you removed them via CKAN but the directories still exist, which ModuleManager will see as having them installed. To fix, either make sure both of those mods are completely uninstalled, or install one (or both) of them. Only the DLL from one of them is needed, you don't need the entire mod. But it needs to be running if ModuleManager thinks its there. 6. It's possible that another mod may be confused that changes how VAB/SPH tweakables or engine shrouds work. This is an odd case, but not impossible. When you don't have Firespitter or InterstellarFuelSwitch installed, the alternate paint jobs are disabled by turning them into "engine shrouds" that correspond to an attachment node that is a kilometer outside the VAB. If another mod interferes with this, such as defaulting all shrouds to "on" even when detached, then you might also see z-fighting. Sadly, the solution might be to simply not use the mods together. Problem: Textures are missing and you're seeing a lot magenta (purple/pink): 1. Files may be missing, or not where the mod is expecting to find them. Fix: Make sure you've installed the mod correctly, in its entirety, and in the right location. Don't rename folders. You can try completely deleting the mod and reinstalling (which is the best way to update the mod anyway). Also make sure the mod's dependencies are installed (SpaceY Expanded requires SpaceY Lifters, for instance). 2. ActiveTextureManagement is goofing it up. Fix: Either remove ATM, or try deleting ATM's cache. ATM frequently has cache issues that cause problems for texture reassignment across folder boundaries. ATM doesn't help as much as it used to, now that stock KSP and most mods use DDS texture format. We've included configs to try to stop ATM from processing this mod's folder, but that may not be working either. Problem: Engine exhaust plumes are missing: Cause: ModuleManager thinks that HotRockets is installed, but it actually isn't. Fix 1: Install HotRockets so that it's a non-issue. Fix 2: Go into the SpaceY folder(s) and delete "SpaceY_HotRockets.cfg". This will keep it from trying to use the HotRockets plumes. Fix 3: Figure out which other mod is causing the confusion, and remove it. We still don't know which mods are causing this, but it's probably due to someone using a "FOR" statement in their MM config instead of "NEEDS". --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Download From: SpaceDock -or- curse.com -or- ksp.necrobones.com (NOTE: Don't forget to install both ModuleManager and SpaceY-Lifters when using SpaceY-Expanded) --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Creative Commons 4.0 Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike CC BY-NC-SA --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Revision History: 1.4 (2018-04-02) - KSP 1.4 update. - Reworked color-changing to use KSP 1.4's mesh switcher. - Flag decals disabled for now, since the stock mesh switcher doesn't play nicely with them. - Disabled auto-caps on tanks, due to KSP bugs over several versions. - Added some missing definitions for Modular Fuel Tanks. - Changed ModularFuelTanks config to use consolidated wildcard patch. 1.3 (2016-10-18) - Update. - Moved service bays to Payload tab. - Added a pair of 10m-3.75m engine adapters. - Added 10m stack separator. - Added two new lengths of 10m fuel tanks. - Added "SaturnV" paint scheme to 10m tanks to match new engine adapters. - Removed some unnecessary duplicate geometry from 10m fuel tanks. 1.2 (2016-10-12) - Update & KSP 1.2 compatibility. - Added KSP 1.2 and KerbNet modules to probe cores. - Corrected a mesh alignment issue on the E1 Emu engine. - Added 10m parts, including some large thrust plates for SpaceX BFT/MCT/ITS styled lifters. - Categories adjusted for several parts, corresponding to 1.2 changes. 1.1.11 (2016-08-01) - Tweaks. - Icon-only shroud added to fairing base, for easy identification in menu. - Removed RemoteTech modules from probe core (now handled by patch in SpaceY-Lifters). - Added a compatibility exclusion for HPTechTree. 1.1.10 (2016-07-12) - Tweaks. - Restricted liquid fuel engines, fairings, and decouplers to non-surface part testing contracts, to match SRBs. - Adjusted some nickname tags on engines. 1.1.9 (2016-05-01) - Tweaks. - Updated Probe core to use IndicatorLights if available. - Probe cores now also have a toggle option for light-up labels that correspond to the indicator lights. - Converted many texture placeholders to DDS format (not that this gains much of anything). 1.1.8 (2016-04-25) - Tweaks. - More search keywords on engines. - Added collider setting for procedural fairing base. - Updated heat shield's staging settings to match stock changes in 1.1. - Fixed the "always transparent" problem in the VAB for the service/cargo bays. 1.1.7 (2016-04-17) - Career fixes. - Drastically reduced career prices for fuel tanks, to bring them into line with stock again. - Adjusted career prices of E1,E2,E4,R9 engines, to bring them into line with stock again. - Increased prices on Penguin (P-series) engines. 1.1.6 (2016-3-31) - KSP 1.1 Update. - Moved ModuleManager patches to "Patches" folder. - Added tags for part searches. - Updated ModuleManager inclusion. 1.1.5 (2016-01-29) - Tweaks. - Updated the CryoEngines config to be consistent with its new propellant ratio. 1.1.4 (2016-01-14) - Tweaks. - Removed the tech tree nodes, since they've been moved to SpaceY Lifters (requires SpaceY Lifters 1.8.2+). 1.1.3 (2016-01-11) - Fixes. - CryoEngines fix: The Penguin engines should no longer display their default plume effects even when not running. 1.1.2 (2016-01-02) - Fixes. - CryoEngines fix: The Penguin engines should no longer run more than one engine mode at once. 1.1.1 (2016-01-02) - Fixes. - Included ModuleManager version updated with its 2.6.16 bugfix update. - Added a "needs" condition for TweakScale patches. 1.1 (2015-12-31) - Texture Compatibility. - Removed 7.5m fuel tank texture, since it was moved to SpaceY Lifters. - Repointed all necessary texture assignments to the new location. - Adjusted UV-mapping of 5m texture as needed to corrospond to changes in Lifters. - Changed "ModularFuelTanks" config to also apply if RealFuels is installed. 1.0 (2015-12-17) - Stable. - Let's call this the 1.0 release.

  18. Lithobrake Exploration Technologies A parts pack that is focused on exploring other worlds, and returning safely to Kerbin. The emphasis is on surface exploration, particularly with large rockets and large landers. IMPORTANT NOTES: This is still considered a "work in progress" and "wide alpha", meaning that ship-breaking changes can still happen. I'll try to minimize this, of course. The highest likelihood of this happening is in removing or redesigning parts, in a way that makes your vehicle either not function as originally planned, or the vehicle can be "deleted" if the part is missing or unloadable. The pods don't currently have custom IVAs. This will come later. This pack includes: (as of 0.2) 3-Man Lander Can 4-Man Capsule Several sets of large landing legs (the "medium" set will handle Mainsails, and the "large" works with Mammoths). Large radial and stackable parachutes Long static ladders Very long deployable ladders Service bays / rover garages. Part of the NecroBones suite of mods, that work nicely together: Modular Rocket Systems (stock-alike parts pack, NASA-like alternatives, and filling the gaps) SpaceY Heavy Lifters Parts Pack (stock-balanced large rocket parts, 5m parts, large SRBs) Color Coded Canisters (replacement models/textures for stock fuel tanks: prettier, cleaner, and diameter color-coding for the tank end-caps) Fuel Tanks Plus (collection of large stock-like tanks with Color Coded Canister style) ColorFuel Lines (color-selctable fuel lines) Lithobrake Exploration Technologies (lander parts, large chutes/legs/ladders/etc) Images: --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Download From: SpaceDock -or- ksp.necrobones.com --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Creative Commons 4.0 Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike CC BY-NC-SA --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Change History: 0.4 (2016-10-12) - KSP 1.2 Update. - Updated categories for many parts. - Added KSP 1.2 sound effects and additional variables for landing legs. - Added transmitter modules to command pods. 0.3.6 (2016-07-12) - Tweaks. - Added an optional experimental config for RealChute integration (for the radial chute only). - To enable, rename "GameData/LETech/Patches/LETech_RealChute.txt" to have "cfg" instead of "txt". - Removed references to "drogue" in the parachute tags. - Added parachute deployment sound effects, as per KSP 1.1.3. 0.3.5 (2016-04-22) - Transparency fix. - Fixed the "always transparent" problem for bays in the VAB. - Adjusted the "expanded" 2.5m bay to use transparency only on the doors. 0.3.4 (2016-04-17) - Tweaks. - Tweaked leg settings. - Moved leg wheel colliders to allow for more accurate aerodynamic occlusion. - Legs reduced in mass quite a bit. 0.3.3 (2016-04-01) - KSP 1.1 Hotfix - Landing leg suspension systems working again.

  21. v5.1 - Darken the blue panels to match the shade of blue that stock solar panels have. I was never a favor of the original light blue of the original mod panels, they never really matched the stock game. ==================================================================================================================================================== With permission from yogui87, I am able to release my copy of the original LH Circular Panels. It appears the old link from the original thread is gone. I may be one of many few who has still has these solar panels. I have also updated it to included Firespitter plugin (dependency), to change solar panels in VAB or SPH, thanks to @COL.R.Nevilleadditions he added. Download from CKAN or Manual install below. LH Circular Panel Sizes Album Video Showcase v4.0: The solar panels where sitting on my HD and figure I should share them with you all. I just came back to game in 1.4.5, so far the panels work fine, they may need some updates. If anyone thinks the code needs updating and can do it, I can re-upload with the update and give credits. By far this isn't my mod, I just had possession of the mod, these solar panels belong to the community and yogui87 feels the same way. The solar panels come in 3 sizes: small, medium and large. One set comes with protective cover and the other set does not. Action Groups also work. Small EC = 1.6/sec. Medium EC = 3.2/sec. Large EC = 6.4/sec. In career mode, solar panels will unlock in Advanced Electrics, just like the stock solar panels. LH Circular Panel EC Album They come in default Black, but can be changed to Blue. To change color, go in: VAB or SPH, when a solar panel is placed on a craft, right-click and you will get options to change colors. Make sure the solar panel is extend, so you can see the color change. These solar panel were originally designed to recreate Orion type space craft, with the black circular panels. But they can be used for any type space craft or mission. You can find it on CKAN Here is the download link for v5.1: SpaceDock Installation is straight forward. You will also need Firespitter, in order to change the color of the solar panels in the VAB or SPH: https://snjo.github.io/ Just download the Plugin and place it in your GameData folder. This is if you don't already have Firespitter. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The original v4.0 by yogui87, unedited by myself or anyone.

  22. Download via the USI Catalog Page This modpack is a repackaging of the PackRat Rover as well as new parts geared towards planetary exploration. Contents: The Pack-Rat Rover. A modular heavy-duty Rover for all of your planetary exploration needs. Easy to assemble Durable Balanced No twiddly surface attachment - everything snaps in place Integrated RTG and batteries Integrated headlights Glow-in-the-dark tape, for when you forget to turn the lights on... Handles like a dream - Munar speeds up to 20m/s Includes experiment storage lockers Includes a new science component (a data camera) Six customizable equipment slots (demo includes four science crates, a seat, and a data camera] Includes a Rover Delivery System - a cage framework with plenty of surface attachment space, and nodes for both the Rover and stack attachment in a 2.5m form factor (though a 3.75 fits the entire wheelbase of the Rover cleanly) Oh... And it can be completely assembled in the field using KAS... If you are assembling this as a sub-assembly in the VAB, start with the roll cage (it has a spare attachment node on top) If you are assembling this via KAS, start with the Front (and surface attach it to a pylon or something so your Rover does not fly away on minmus or something) The Advanced Extravehicular Suit (AES) What started out as a hardened EVA pod soon transformed into an assortment of small parts to extend it's functionality. Parts included: The AES Commad Pod - Tiny, with full glass IVA Micro SAS Micro RCS thrusters and mini tanks Micro decoupler (so handy!) Electric ducted fan motor (atmo only) - Nifty in that it ties to both the RCS and Engine systems FireSpitter and ModuleRCSFx are both required and included.

Why won't the game load? KSP crashes when trying to load M2 Expansion parts? Make sure you install the required dependencies, B9 PartSwitch and Community Resource Pack. Both are included with Mk2Expansion in the download. Because M2X uses resources from CRP, KSP will not load if it is missing from your Kerbal Space Program/GameData director How can I configure the Mk2 lab to seat 4 kerbals? install the Extras/Mk2Expansion/patches/4Seatlab MM patch. How do I get the banshee Fans to use Electric Charge or LF/Air? install one of the alternate fuel configs in Extras/Mk2Expansion/Patches/ - either M2X_AirBreathingBanshee (will no longer work on Eve/Duna/Jool) or M2X_ElectricBanshee.

  24. Download via the USI Catalog Page Background: What's more awesome than asteroids? Asteroids you can put stuff in! Asteroid Recycling Technologies (ART) allows you to remove asteroid mass and attach multiple reconfigurable storage tanks to the asteroid's surface. ART is a collaboration between myself (plugin code, configs, and Unity), and WaRi (modeling and textures). How it works: First, Attach (via the same mechanism as the ARM Claw) a mass extractor to the surface of the asteroid. This device (aka the Jaw) uses a high powered laser to vaporize asteroid mass, transforming it into rock (a new resource) and prepare the interior space for use. Next, attach one of several reconfigurable storage tank hatches to the asteroid. Each of these contains a specific resource (LiquidFuel, Oxidizer, XenonGas and Karbonite are included, mod creators and players are encouraged to create more!). These begin with zero capacity, but can be inflated once attached to the asteroid and take advantage of the space created by the Jaw. Better yet, these storage tanks can be reconfigured on the fly based on your needs - need more Karbonite space and less XenonGas space? no problem - just compress and expand the different tanks. There's even an option to bleed off the contents if you need to make room for something else. What do I do with all of this rock?! You can bleed it off - just select 'Vent Rock' on your asteroid's right click menu to toss some out into space. Or, use one of our handy low-yeild extractors (ones for Karbonite, Minerals/Water, and Substrate/Ore come with the release) to transform rock into useable stuff. Example: Using the Jaw, a player can create available space of, say, 50,000 units. They could then attach tanks for Karbonite, Liquid Fuel, and Oxidizer, and distribute that 50K capacity among all three, and change it as needed (i.e. reduce Karbonite space and expand LFO space during conversion, etc.) There's some extra stuff too! Lastly, there are two new parts for other rocky goodness: a nifty mass driver engine that runs off of Rock, as well as an accompanying storage tank. These are similar to ion drives, but with much higher thrust at the expense of ISP (so they sit somewhere between the nuke and the ion drive). I'm still lost... can you make an awesome video or something? Ask and ye shall receive. License and stuff License is All Rights Reserved. But if you wish to use some code or a model, etc. toss me a line! In the event of my absence from the official KSP forums for 120 days or more, the license will revert to CC 4.0 BY SA NC.

[*]Hollowing potential jumped up to 75% of mass. [*]Simplified the converters at the expense of efficiency - now go straight from rock to resources. Ratio is approximately 1000:1 to account for conservation of mass (asteroids are fluffy), and to leave breathing room for mining specialization. [*]The probe now gives science. Analysis results are non-game impacting for now, but there to support the next expansion. [*]Some FX adjustments [/LIST] 0.4.0 RELEASE CANDIDATE [LIST] [*]Mass drivers in 1.25/2.5 form factors along with a high-thrust RCS version. Yes, you can fly asteroids around. No, they have no more gimbals. Oh.. and the fade of the emmissive is prettier. [*]The probe now requires direct activation to perform it's analysis. IT also shows analysis results (so does the asteroid). [*]Turns out asteroids are very fluffy... conversion rates and hollowed out volume adjusted accordingly. [*]A new part - Intermediary Separation Module - handles the separation of rock into the specialized types. It will attempt to do this when it sees you have a lot of rock. It also handles Rock=>RockDust conversion. [*]Fixed the whole 'probe zooming in the VAB' thing [*]Mass should now remain constant (until conversions start expelling waste). [/LIST]
