  1. Explodium Breathing Engines "Jet" engines that (actually!) use Eve's atmosphere and Oxidizer. License: MIT License except for re-coloured textures, which were derived from art belonging to Squad / Deported B.V. Download from SpaceDock or from GitHub. Supports KSP 1.12. and supports RealPlume Stock and now Waterfall. It had to happen. After good success with @GregroxMun's Alien Space Programs and @OhioBob's Eve Optimized Engines, along with an old discussion about atmospheric engines using oxidizer instead of liquid fuel, I just had to ask how hard it would be to make jet engines that would breathe "explodium vapour" likely found in Eve's atmosphere and burn it with oxidizer to produce efficient thrust. @JadeOfMaar and @wasml pointed me in the right direction, @DStaal filled in a few blanks, and I hacked together some parts. Introducing Explodium Breathing Engines. A set of cloned configuration files from stock jet engine parts that use oxidizer only, and a new resource configuration found hypothetically in Eve's atmosphere: "Explodium Vapour" evaporated from Eve's Explodium Sea. This vapour may also be present on other planets in popular planet packs. Further rebalancing has happened based on resource abundance and a pure ethane (C2H6) reaction with oxygen. Resource abundance now has a direct impact on engine performance. This is turning from proof-of-concept into something realistic, while still being fun to use. There really is some science behind this that I explain at the project's Wiki, and hammered out in a more recent add-on discussion thread. Modified parts include explodium versions of all intakes, oxidizer + explodium versions of nacelles, oxidizer only tanks and wet wings, and underworld-themed engines: J-21 "Hades" J-34 "Zephyrus" J-91 "Atlas" J-405 "Sphinx" J-X5 "Beelzebub" and let's not forget our favourite: CR-8 L.U.C.I.F.E.R. (Large Unkerbal Cycle-Interchanging Fueled Explodium Rocket) Introducing for 1.7, engines for gas giants, failed or otherwise. Consider this a counter-challenge for Team Galileo: J-22 "Dorothy" J-35 "Scarecrow" J-406 "Lion" J-X6 "Tinman" J-92 "Wizard" and finally the CR-9 S.L.I.P.P.E.R. (Science-Light Impossibly PerPosterous Explodium Rocket) All parts should have a distinct appearance to separate them from stock parts. I put all of the modified parts and ExpVapour resource configurations in a GitHub repository. MIT license to match OhioBob's choice for the Eve Optimized Engines. I'd be glad to let others into the project who know better than I do. The to-do list includes: (The to-do list is finished!) Rewrite parts as Module Manager patches to remove dependency on Squad art (Done!) Fix the intakes to work on Eve only, somehow (Done! Intakes are now zero EC harvesters.) Fix the resource config if needed, integrate with Community Resource Pack (Not necessary as it turns out.) Rebalance engine performance based on tester feedback (we might be almost done!) Produce different artwork to identify the explodium-based parts (I'm just missing some tricky parts.) Create RealPlume configurations; I'd like to do a different colour plume for these like the blue from an ethane flame (This was quite easy, as it turned out.) Maybe get some help with CKAN, publish to Space Dock (SpaceDock done, CKAN should be done) Known problems, should not impact play: Ore mining contracts will appear in Career mode when you unlock tech nodes with harvester parts. This might be a game design problem with contracts lumping all resource harvesters together. Pay attention to contract requirements, because there might be a "Gather 2000 units of Explodium Vapour" contract that won't make sense because there are no containers for it. No colourized textures are available for the Atlas engine or Big-OX wings. The wings don't take well to colourization, and the Atlas causes null reference exceptions if using an alternate texture. Harvesters have a small amount of ExpVapour loaded by default. This means engines will work for a few seconds at launch from Kerbin, but will quickly run out of vapour. This may be needed in KSP 1.3 though. Slow frame rates may happen if using the RealPlume configurations. Update SmokeScreen to 2.7.4 or later to address this. (KSP 1.3) Stationary harvesters will harvest zero ExV, such as craft on launch clamps or with wheel brakes engaged. Once motion starts, harvesters will start harvesting. (KSP 1.3) Engine resource shows up as "Ex V" instead of "Explodium Vapour" in VAB or SPH. Other resource name strings not affected for some reason. To use this part pack, grab a release from GitHub or SpaceDock, and put the "GameData\ExplodiumBreathingEngines" folder into your GameData folder. To use a RealPlume configuration, install RealPlume-Stock and update its SmokeScreen installation to 2.7.4 or later. If you don't install RealPlume, you'll still get a different engine plume for some engines but most will use the stock jet plumes. To use Waterfall plumes, install the Waterfall framework. Now with more Fire! Change log:
  2. 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.

  5. Add details and dimensions of parts (e.g. fuel tanks) as in Making history I and many people probably like to build compact rockets rather than taking a lot of extra fuel or emptying a tank because you couldn't find smaller tanks of the right profile. Since its introduction the medium 1.875m size parts have been present in many of my crafts. And the Huge 5m parts are extremely handy for interplanetary travel and taking out huge structures without too much hassle I don't think making another size tank will be harder than the other features, but it will increase the creative space for players from the very release of the game and in its base set. I hope for understanding

  9. V1.8.1 You've likely heard of Project Orion - the incredibly metal spacecraft propulsion concept from the '60s that involved surfing on the wake of serial nuclear explosions - but Project Orion wasn't just the eponymous engine; it was an entire vehicle concept study to construct a fleet of Orion powered spacecraft variants to explore and utilize the local Solar System - Luna, Mars, even Jupiter or Saturn and their extensive moon systems. What this mod does is bring Project Orion to KSP. Parts List: -5m Orion Drive -5m Medusa Drive -2 Payload Spines, Short and Long -3 external Size1.5 Pulse Unit magazines -5 external LF/O & MonoProp tanks -5 radial resource containers -2 radial Cargo Bays -4 Payload Spine adapters, 1.25m ,2.5m, 3.75m, 5m -7 Structural adapters, 1.25m, 2.5m, 3.75m, &5m -1.875m Command Pod -1.875m Crew Can, Living Quarters, and Lab -5m Cargo Bays -5m Uranium ISRU Processor -1.875m Metal ISRU Smelter Pics Download -SpaceDock -GitHub This mod is licensed under a MIT license. Includes CRP as a dependency. Kottabos review (version 1.0) Usage Notes: * Strut your stuff! If you think you have enough struts, you don't. Orion produces impulses, rather than continuous thrust. Make sure your vessel can survive the rigors of launch. AutoStruts (enabled via toggling Advanced Tweakables in the settings menu)are highly recommended, as is the Rigid Attach toggle. Kerbal Joint Reinforcement continued is also recommended. * 0.05kt yield pulse units don't seem like much, but are included for a reason. Dense atmosphere like Kerbin ASL boosts the impulse from the pulse units, and higher yields may very well straight up destroy a lighter rocket on launch. * Nuclear Pulse Units are nukes. it is recommended to not operate an Orion drive near any launch pads, lunar bases or orbital stations you particularly like. Replacing the Launchpad at the KSC can get expensive. * At present, due to ModulePulseEngine being a bespoke engine module, stock (or mod) dV calcs and readouts don't grab the Orion Drive; Orion dV calcs can be found in the Orion part action Window in flight. * Bring lots of RCS. Orion Vessels can easily reach kiloton masses, and will take forever to come about on just SAS; 1.875m LF/O and MonoProp tanks that will fit on the sides of a payload Spine are included for this purpose. Changelog:
  10. A recommendation for people looking for more difficulty in the game, add the potential for parts failure as an option. Engine failures, control surfaces sticking, gimbal lock, partial damage states for parts overstressed by aerodynamic or gravitational forces. Maybe for each of those add a way to mitigate the potential for these problems too, balanced against extra weight for reinforcement or reduced speed for an aircraft. Several mods out there already based on realism and equipment limitations.
  11. 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.

Download Mirrors Primary (SpaceDock) Secondary (CurseForge) Tertiary (GitHub) Issue Tracking and Source Special Thanks A big hand to @JadeOfMaar, @Dragon01 ,@Stone Blue, @Pulsar, @Fraz86 and probably more people that I forgot! 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.
  12. This adds a SpaceX Droneship to land your rockets on! It includes a static for Kerbal Konstructs and a VAB part. This is a continuation of Space X Barge Lander, which only had a KK static. I added the VAB part. In the future, I hope to add more parts related to SpaceX's Fleet, such as tugs. It's not perfect yet, but I'm working on it. I want to thank @ColdJ for his continued help with this, my first part mod. Dependencies: KerbalKonstructs (if you want the static) ModuleManager Download from: SpaceDock CKAN Github License: MIT
  13. Lithobrake Exploration Technologies (LET) A parts pack that is focused on exploring other worlds, and returning safely to Kerbin.

  16. Fuel Tanks Plus (FTP) A set of fuel tanks that are longer than largest stock tanks in each diameter, plus fuel-filled nose cones for those diameters. These are meant to give you some visual choice of styles that are loosely inspired by real-world rockets from NASA, ESA, and private space firms (though that inspiration is mainly in color choice), while maintaining the style established in the Color Coded Canisters mod. By zer0Kerbal, originally by @NecroBones adopted with express permission and brought to you by KerbSimpleCo What is "Fuel Tanks Plus" exactly? Simply, it's a set of fuel tanks that are 1.5x the length of the largest stock tanks in each diameter, plus fuel-filled nose cones for those diameters. These tanks are meant to give you some visual choice of styles that are loosely inspired by real-world rockets from NASA, ESA, and private space firms (though that inspiration is mainly in color choice), while maintaining the style established in the Color Coded Canisters mod (since CCC replaces stock visuals, any "new" tanks should be spun off into a separate pack, and hence we have FTP).

  17. Xingniao Aerospace What is it? Xingniao* Aerospace is a mod intended to introduce parts for the Chinese space program, primarily focusing on launch vehicles, crewed spacecraft, and their space station program, ranging from the earliest satellite launchers of the 1970s to present. Stylistically, it's intended to be a blend of a stockalike and Tantares (which has been a huge inspiration/help with this project in general, go check it out) with a nice "lego-able" design that can be mixed and matched. These parts are being balanced against a 2.5x Kerbol system, so they may be overpowered in a stock-size game! *pronounced "shing-niao" What'll it have? Currently, my plans are to include parts to build: -CZ1/1D -CZ-2, its variants, and the upper stages to convert it to a CZ-3/4 -Shenzhou -Tiangong/Tianzhou -Tianhe and associated laboratory modules What're your standards of accuracy? I'm trying to have these parts capture the feel/essence of the original rockets, while still retaining a stylized quality to help it fit in better with stock parts and those from other mods. Additionally, a somewhat simplified representation of some of these may be somewhat necessary for the sake of unwrapping and texturing in any reasonable amount of time. Another important note on this is that, as someone in the US, there's a degree of difficulty in accessing image references and technical specifications for missile/rocket systems developed in 1970s China. As such, there's a good possibility that artistic liberties will be taken with some parts to fill the gaps in concrete knowledge. That said, if you do have suggestions for improvements and photo references to accompany them, I'd be glad to look into implementing them! Do these parts even exist yet, and what do they look like? Many of them do! Some of them have been put in-game in some fashion or another, and others are still-untextured blender models that're in the process of being worked on, but here are some samples of what I've got! ETA on release? No idea! Progress depends heavily on a lot of factors, like things going on in my outside life, mental health, school, etc. I've been working on this project for about a year or so now and I'm excited to finally be getting to a point where I have something worth sharing on the forums! Let me know what you think of this, if you have any questions/comments, etc.! I'd love to hear! I'll also be posting occasional updates here before moving to a release thread at some point, so feel free to stay tuned!

  22. I expect a lot of us will be starting new career saves after the release of 0.90. So in anticipation of that day, and because the idea of grinding science on the launchpad makes me sad, I give you Sounding Rockets! This mod adds a series of very simple 0.35m parts to the start node, including: Two SRB engines. One with high thrust, one with high efficiency. Neither have decouplers, but will instead automatically jettison when out of fuel (this is especially handy for the upper stage below your payload). A nosecone containing a basic parachute, gyro system, and control module. Note: These run off of StoredCharge not ElectricCharge, and by design cannot be recharged. You will have enough juice for a short mission, but don't expect to get to the Mun with it. Four new science experiments to serve as payloads for your sounding rocket. Note, that trying to stack more than one will likely exceed the parachute's capacity. Enjoy! Go forth and find bees, feedback rocks.

  23. Animated warp effect: Inroducing a new, stand-alone Alcubierre drive for KSP! What does it do? The Alcubierre drive works by moving space around your ship, not through accelleration. In KSP we do this by changing your vessels position based on the engine throttle controls for the warp engine. Speeds of up to 16 times the speed of light are possible. How does it work? Use massive amounts of electric charge to create Exotic Matter. Point at your target. Use Exotic Matter and Xenon Gas (the latter is for the maneuver thrusters) to go straight to the target. Note that since your velocity does not change, only your location, you will have to compensate for any orbital speed differences. This can be excessive (15K+ DV) or, with proper planning, next to zero. To be clear. This is NOT just a fast, efficient engine. There is no acceleration (other than a tiny amount from the maneuver thrusters). It works through translating the ship's position (simulating how a real Alcubierre drive might work). What's the catch? How is this not OP? You will still need either very careful navigation or excessive DV changes to achieve orbit. Also, because of the destructive nature of the warp bubble, parts outside of it (both on your own ship and others) will be destroyed. Warp bubble collapses are also destructive, and maneuvering at excessive warp speeds can be very dangerous (everything from losing control through parts of your ship slipping outside of the bubble and exploding). What other mods do I need? None. Really. The only dependency is Regolith which is needed for it's converter (used to make Exotic Matter from EC). What other parts do I need to support this? Stock only. Really. Near Future Technologies reactors, or reactors from the USI mods will make some things easier, but you can get away with a completely stock warp ship with just the addition of this part. Can this support [mod X]? If you want integration with other mods, tell your favorite modders to ping me.
