  1. Omicron Walkable and usable interiors, hatch doors, docking ports, seats, all for your Kerbals Delight! Join the next era in space flying car playmobil like! Vtol Controls Configuration (On KSP) Please follow this post link to implement Vtol adjustable angle control with the latest version it's updated to analog controls that are not automatic set in KSP. Update 0.6.6.6 to KSP 1.12.3 Hello, Everyone. So, this is my idea, from child, I dream to fly one of these. A flying car. The name is OMICRON! Is a flying space car with a foot on reality and other in near future. The engine is in the same principle of a Saber engine, but Vtol too, and will accept stock rocket engines in the back. all parts are modular and you can build on your own. But i put some example crafts with the download. My attempt is to have the EVA and the IVA all together, i mean, the Kerbals will be visible inside the craft, and all windows/doors will be openable, more likely the stock seat, but inside the craft. The configurations you'll be able to do it, reach VTOL, SSTO. I'm not creating new engines to put on back, only the Vtol SSTO ones that show in the pics, on the side of the craft. I hope all can joy this creation and use it in your voyages. Cheers commanders. List of things i still need to do (for full release): Finalize cockpit panel extra functions; Plate with 6 rockets and included legs; Ejection system for seats and windows; Parachutes; Wings; Rocket command pod with big windows; Download links (0.6.6): https://spacedock.info/mod/2413/Omicron Flying Space Car (primary) https://kerbal.curseforge.com/projects/omicron-space-flying-car (secondary) Installation Notes: Change Logs: Source Code: https://github.com/rvalle7/Omicron Dev Thread: Dev Thread (Portuguese): Omicron by Climberfx is licensed under a Attribution 4.0 International If you like this mod, consider doing a donation (just click the PayPal icon below.
  2. Starship 2021 Design (S20) PERMANENT UPDATE: I have decided to discontinue the mod due to burnout and the high rate of changes to the design IRL, plus I absolutely hate dealing with Unity and KSP modding in general. A lot more work than I really have the patience to deal with, so I'm returning to only doing renders and animations. HOWEVER. . . If you want a replacement, please check @Kari's Starship Expansion Project we've helped each other in the past and I highly recommend it. 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. CryoTanks are required because of the LqdMethane configuration as of 1.2. (This was an accidental thing, I'll see if I can make it optional for 2.0, alternatively, you can probably delete the tank configs in the Patches folder of the mod) Recommended: CryoEngines - For more accurate Raptor replicas until I make my own. My mod includes a config for the engines and tank contents to be compatible. 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 Ship until I release my own and you'll also have more Ship variants to play with. Installation: Place the KaioSpace folder in the zip file inside the KSP GameData folder. Launch the game! Yup, should be that simple. On CKAN all you have to do is select and install. 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. Features usually get released to patreon first a couple days early and then I will make a public release once all testing is done. The next major update (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 2021 but stopped because I wasn't making progress learning (because quite honestly the documentation for modding isn't.. very friendly or updated for new devs, but that's a rant for another day). Few months later 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. RSS/RO Configs: I'm not planing to make RSS/RO configs myself, but you're free to post your configs on this post and I'll list them here below. I will not test them myself (I'm bad at RO lol) so use at your own risk & let me know, also send me pics on twitter!!: Modder Resources for making compatible mods: Changelogs: Work In Progress:

  7. About This is the new thread for B9 Aerospace. The old thread is available here This pack adds a vast selection of new parts, introducing new spaceplane components such as new engines, cockpits, wings and fuselage systems, new structural components for orbital installations and colonies, and so on B9 was originally developed by @bac9, @Taverius, and @K3-Chris, now maintained by @blowfish and @Flashblade with help from many others Requirements The latest version is compatible with KSP 1.8.x. The bundled dependencies are for KSP 1.8.1 and may not work on other versions. All other KSP versions should be considered incompatible. If you are on an earlier version of KSP, however, you may be able to find a compatible version of B9 here B9 depends on several other mods to make it work. They are included in the download, and listed below in the "Dependencies" section. Installation Instructions You can install with CKAN and have the dependencies installed automatically. If you are doing a manual install, open the zip you downloaded, find the GameData folder and copy all of its contents into your existing GameData folder in KSP. If you already have any of the bundled mods, check which one is the latest version. Note that the core and HX packs come with the same version of some dependencies. B9 will not work unless installed correctly. If you're having issues, please verify that you have installed it correctly. Download Three packs are available for download: B9 Aerospace Core Pack - All of the main spaceplane parts B9 Aerospace Legacy Pack - Older Mk1 and Mk2 parts, modular wings. Requires the core pack and all of its dependencies B9 Aerospace HX Pack - Large blocky futuristic parts. Does not require the core pack, comes with its own dependencies Download mirror: S3 Also available on CKAN Changelog FAQ Q: The mod crashes the game for some reason, what can I do? Make sure that everything is installed correctly, your dependencies are up-to-date, and you are on the correct version of KSP. If you can't find the issue read this helpful topic and post the issue in this thread. Be sure to include your logs! If you are quite certain that you have found a bug, you can create the issue on our Github page. Try to provide as much detail as possible - logs, example craft, reproduction steps. Also be sure that the issue is reproducable with only B9 installed. Posts along the lines of "Its not working" or "Everything is broken" won't really help us much. Q: I don't understand a thing in those IVA displays, there are too many buttons and screens Here is a very helpful manual. Q: Why aren't you respecting stock balance? Mods should reference stock for the configs of the new parts, otherwise balance of modded game would be all over the place! While we try to respect stock balance as much as possible, there are a number of inconsistencies in the balance of stock parts that make it impossible to keep balance against every stock part. If something seem very far off of what it should be, feel free to ask in this thread. Q: I can't find those huge blocky parts from the opening image in my part catalog. Why are those missing? They were recently separated into another download as they mostly don't share dependencies with the main part of the mod and as many people prefer not to use them. Q: I can't find the modular wing pieces that are depicted on many screenshots of this mod. Why are those missing? They were removed and will no longer be developed. They are available as an optional download in the Bitbucket repository linked on top of this post, but we do not recommend using them. A far better option is using procedural wings, since you'll have just one part with just one material and just one texture covering any possible wing shape then. Good for performance, good for design freedom, good for looks. Grab the procedural wings here. Q: Why aren't procedural wings integrated into the main B9 package? Because they have entirely separate dependencies and are maintained by different folks. Merging them will only needlessly complicate updates.

  10. Hi everyone, I've ran into an issue with the breaking ground DLC, none of the parts included display in the SPH/VAB, the category 'robotic parts' is present, as is all the stock craft that come with Breaking Ground, but the category is completely blank and none of the Breaking Ground stock craft can be loaded due to containing 'locked or invalid parts' and can't be loaded. Clean (and new) install of KSP 1.12.2.3167, Breaking Ground 1.7.1, Making History 1.12.1 (both appear in the bottom-right corner of the main menu), attempted to completely remove KSP and then redownload to no avail. Windows 10 Home 64 bit. EDIT: Just to note, I've never had this issue before on previous versions of KSP/Breaking Ground. A link to the imgur album showing screenshots of what I'm seeing can be found here. Any help would be appreciated.
  11. License: CC BY-NC-SA 4.0 Version 1.0.0 A Harrier parts pack that provides everything but the landing gear and the hinges for under the wings, to build a Harrier Jump Jet. 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.
  12. Zero-Point Inline Fairings Parts Pack NOTe: Does NOT shield contents in stock aerodynamics! Please use FAR or NEAR. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Supports TweakScale and AVC. Appears to be friendly to FAR/NEAR so far. 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) Zero-Point Inline Fairings (stock-alike fairings parts pack, no plugin code) VERY IMPORTANT NOTE: 1.0 and later versions ARE NOT COMPATIBLE with 0.9.x and earlier! 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! If you are upgrading from 0.9 or earlier, be sure to delete the mod's folder from GameData before installing the new version.

  15. This addon is under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivatives 4.0 International license 2020 Update Well, it's back now. For now, unless a lot of you would like otherwise, I'll be sticking with KSP 1.8.x as this is the only version Firespitter officaly supports at the moment. I've seen some people haven't gotten it to work for them on 1.9.x versions and it's probably not going to work on 1.10.x versions either. The farthest it can go that I can say it will from experience is up to 1.9.x versions, however if you do decide to use Firespitter and Firespitter Extended in these versions keep in mind issues you find in there are most likely because both are meant for 1.8.x Since I've learned how to properly model stuff, models will definetly be coming out faster. I mostly just have to get the hang of Unity and how KSP does its stuff, and you might even be able to see more parts like engines, cockpits etc. along with better quality skins. DISCLAIMER: I have been given permission by @RoverDude to release this mod. This mod consists of modified parts and shares Firespitter Bi-Plane textures already made by either @RoverDude or @Snjo and are not originally made by me. In no way am I trying to steal the show from their pack. All credits go to them for releasing the original parts. I am in no way a part of the Firespitter development team. Thank you in advance for your acknowledgment! Ever played around with the WWI Firespitter parts and got frustrated with how hard it is to make a replica with them? They look like the perfect parts at a first glance, but there's just not enough variety to make that one Central powers fighter look different from the rest of your craft apart from the paint job or the arrangement of parts, and you don't really want to resort to stock pieces for your WWI save as they look too modern. Well, look no further! This pack was made for you! The only dependencies are Firespitter for the textures and ModuleManager Note that when I say Firespitter, I mean the actual parts pack, not just the plugin! Grab it here! Downloads: Spacedock Download Github Download Change log: Q&A: Q: Why do the parts look like they have no textures on the part list in the SPH/VAB? (They still look normal when you place them on your craft in the hangar though) A: I don't know. This is actually the first time I've made parts using FS texture switch configs, so any help would be appreciated to fix this bug. But don't worry, the parts should work and have colors without any issues! Q: Proof of permission? A: Sadly, I've somehow lost the message I sent to RoverDude. However, if you have any concerns you can ask him. Q: Why do some of your parts piggy-back off of other Firespitter textures? A: I'm trying to keep this addon as close to Firespitter's design as possible. By reusing Firespitter's textures, I can keep stuff from being too out of line with the original Firespitter biplane parts while also saving space and memory by using less textures. Q: What if I find an issue? A: Open an issue in the GitHub, or post it here. I recommend you go to GitHub though, to prevent forum clutter. Any pictures or logfiles will be greatly useful for me to look at! Q: Are you open to suggestions/criticism? A: I am open to any suggestions! Feel free to criticize the mod in any way, but make sure to tell me what's wrong so I can see what to do to make it better! Q: Where could I post suggestions/critique? A: You can post it on the forum or on GitHub Q: Do/Will you support previous versions of KSP? A: Most likely not. Q: Will you do more extensions for Firespitter parts other than the WWI series? A: Probably not, as this mod is meant to be focused on WWI parts regarding Firespitter, and the WWI textures/models are the only ones I specifically asked permission for modification. Q: CKAN support? A: Sure, personally I don't use it so let me know if there are any issues and I'll try to solve them
  16. Hello all! I have another new mod for you. A couple weeks ago, the incredibly handsome @AlbertKermin asked me if I was interested in making a mini-mod. Inspired by the OSIRIS-Rex mission, he wanted a small sample return capsule that could be loaded with experiments and safely return. The mod contains two parts, a command/parachute and heatshield/cargobay. It is currently 2AM, so I don't want to write more, but I wanted to post this in time for the weekend! Compatibility: RemoteTech configs are included. Known Issues: There is no data storage in the command module. It will be added soon. Future Plans: lol. Accept compatibility patches, keep it working with future KSP updates.

  17. Procedural Parts, Tidal Stream Branch. Download Latest Releases for Procedural Parts Starwaster has not recompiled Procedural Parts for Kerbal Space Program 1.3.1 so it is marked as incompatible in CKAN. There was a pull request for this on Github but it has not been merged. So I decided to fork it and make the necessary changes. Full description in the original thread. It supports 1.3.1 and 1.4+ (1.4, 1.5, 1.6, and 1.7), and the releases are on CKAN so people can install it easily instead of having to do it manually. Licence Remains as CC-BY-SA 3.0 Unported.
  18. Welcome to the release thread for Making Alternate History! Inspired by the alternate history universe of Eyes Turned Skyward, this pack brings you a set of stock-a-like Artemis / Altair landers and habitats complete with all the parts necessary for a voyage to another solar body. Parts guide / manual: Making Alternate History was previously labeled as 100% dependent upon Textures Unlimited, however this is revised and Textures Unlimited is now only required if you would like to use the Mk1 and Mk3 Habitat modules. At time of posting, Textures Unlimited is version 1.9.x and no one can be responsible for any issues that arise from Textures Unlimited 1.9.x being run on 1.10.x. In testing with this mod, things worked fine.

  20. Flat-Bottom Shuttle Systems is a modular parts pack which allows you to build flat-bottom space planes! These parts have a triangular cross-section of 2.5m and, due to the flat bottom, provide some lift. Please note, the RasterPropMonitor mod is required for the IVAs and will have to be downloaded separately. Comments and feedback are appreciated. Updated: 3/17/2019 The latest update includes surface-attachable wings, added adapters for Mk2, Mk2.5 and Mk3, and new engine mounting plates. Now uses B9 Part Switch.

  21. The Adventures Of JSA II is a continuation of the Adventures Of The JSA, which was created back in 2019 and had a total of 11 parts before ending due to problems. In this multi-part series, the Johnster Space Agency continues in a new career save in KSP 1.10, with missions being told in a mission report/story telling style (like how it was done in the original, although with improvements). I'm hoping for JSA get a lot further this time with more being accomplished (such as exploring comets or sending crewed missions to Duna), but if the worst happens and this series also gets problems, I'll try my best to continue it in JSA III (but hopefully I won't have to do that).

  22. As from 2018-0606 and under @jandcando agreement, I'm the New Management(TM) for Impossible Innovations. From now on, it's all my fault. In a Hurry: Releases: on GitHub on SpaceDock on CurseForge Old thread: on Forum. Project Yes, it works with KSP 1.10.0 (with Making History and Breaking Ground) Current Release: 0.8.9.0 Install Instructions. Announce. Source: on GitHub ChangeLog: here. TODO list Introduction: Impossible Innovations is a parts pack for KSP that adds some late-game parts based on fusion. Eternal Working In Progress. Here's the rundown: The Add'On adds several engine types that run off of deuterium. There is also a powerful RCS system driven by tritium. The reaction wheels also use tritium. Other all-around useful parts are added like the dead weight, different strut varieties, better parachutes, etc. Part Information: A little bit of useful info on how Impossible Innovations alters the tech tree: Impossible Innovations uses ModuleManager to place additional nodes to the tech tree. So if other Add'Ons do likewise, the possibility exists that there may be overlapping nodes, but no functionality would be lost. There is some basic integration with the Community Tech Tree, so don't worry about compatibility issues there. Some Pictures: Here. Known Issues: Working on it. Please be patient, I'm pretty sure I'll be able to break something soon. Credits: Contributions From: JandCandO (for creating this Add'On at first place!) Dungchunker (For creating the amazing blue models you see) Baconator900 (For previous efforts as one-man testing team) Lando (For creating Part Generator) And future new features/bugs/mishaps from yours truly. Legal Stuff:
  23. An ongoing thread for random parts I make for the fun of it. All will work with vanilla KSP. With the magic of ModuleManager some parts will behave differently depending on the mods you are running, or you may get extra parts that work only if certain mods are installed. There're no interdependencies... so you can remove the parts you don't want by deleting the part's folder. Download will be Dropbox only, there will be no version numbers. I will simply add parts as my fancy strikes me. Install instructions: download the part you want; place in GameData/DrKermnassusParts Download: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/bso7vfiztoqvczy/AAA57HlmaGA2WjVC157R-oYFa CC-BY Ikerus Mk1 (Left): Single part solar heat shield in 3.75m diameter housing, deploys to ~38 meters in diameter.

  24. Heavy Science is a mod I've always wanted. It adds mass to any Surface Samples experiments that Kerbals take from the various planets and moons in the Kerbol System. Reviews to date: This Rocks! - Jeb One of life’s sample pleasures - Bob Background: This mod is my attempt to bring together a jumble of ideas liked having in my gameplay, while also learning a bit of OO Programming. My original idea was built by cobbling together various other mods to get the gameplay result I was after. (I posted that idea in this forum thread) I found it odd that surface samples didn't mass anything and could be 'transmitted' for 25% science for doing so. I sought out a mod that makes players lean more heavily to returning surface samples than just transmitting them, but didn't find one. I later found some forum posts also mentioning the idea. I figured I'd have a go and coding (I've only done VB before and Object Orientated stuff gets me quite lost at times) Heavy Science (Core ideas) Surface samples... cannot be stored in command pods can only be stored in a specific container part which I can add to the craft when building it cannot be transmitted for science (return only) have mass and thus affects your return available Delta-V to get my Kerbals home Adds 1 part to the game - Surface Sample Container with empty mass of 0.06t (60kg) Surface samples will probably mass 150kg I did the maths with this setup to check what happens if I were to grab 1 of all available surface samples in the stock game - including both splashed and landed variants. At 200kg each, it would all weigh a bit over a fully fuelled Orange tank (~40 ton) That should make for some fun shoving that around the system while playing a collect 'em all mission. Known Issue: Not compatible with Kopernicus at all. Breaks it completely. Download link - Github Credits: Big thanks to: The KSP developers for their efforts in supporting the KSP forum community as well and building this awesome game! @Gaiden for suggestions on how to help refine the flexibility of the mod and not restrict the users desired game play. @Rodger for the waffle cone and texture (Happens to be my favourite bit of the mod at the moment) Licence: I'm using Talisar Mk1 Cargo Bay as the Heavy Science Container. Heavy Science uses the same licence: (CC BY-SA 3.0) Happy to hear anyone's feedback, suggestions and/or discussion about the mod
  25. Disclaimer: I'm asking something that may be beyond my current understanding But let's boldly go ... Is there any sort of guideline or requirement or standard for a part that will contain ModuleScienceContainer? Asked in another way ... if I was dreaming of a part mod that would have that module in it, are there physics-types of constraints on the part design that I should keep in mind?
