  1. The stock of engines and other parts available to me in my build of KSP RSS RO RP-0 (still 1.1.3, can anyone help me out here?) has become boring. Engine mods provide many of the real engines, but more obscure engines (e.g. the HM4, MGM-5 Corporal engine, Wasserfall engine, AJ-260, et cetera) are nowhere to be found, and I want to make fictional engines for my spaceflight-related fictional universes and alternate histories (like engines burning supercooled 100% ethanol and liquid oxygen, hydrofluor, et cetera). I am also bored of the non-editable historical probes, thermophobic RCS, and the lack of generic heat shields beyond Lunar-rated, though not as much as I am about the engines. I have no intention (currently…) to develop mods for other people. I also have no intention to create new models, animations, plumes, or sound effects, just to use those already in existence scaled according to size.
  2. This is a place where the KSP community can gather to share, discuss and promote their Favorite MOD lists, a place where new players can come to find sets of MODs that work well together. This place is in other words, a place where experienced players and the new players can come together to help each other and to teach each other. What is the MOD docket? It is a list of lists. Below you will find a list of all the add-on lists in the MOD docket. (Or at least you will if users contribute) Each category contains (or will contain soon) several links that will take you to a user recommended list of MODs that both work well together and share a common theme. So I want to contribute to Lists what do I need to do? (Optional), I recommend that you give your MOD list a Name. No rules for this outside the general Forum rules for good behavior. List the most recent version of KSP that you have used this list on. This is very important so that players do not try and use these add-ons on incompatible KSP versions. This is especially necessary if your list contains add-ons that have not been updated to the version of KSP listed for your list. We are all trusting that you have used it in the KSP version you listed so please make sure you have verified functionality before you list a non update add-ons. When sharing your add-ons it is required that you list the version of KSP that the MOD is updated for. If you choose to share an older version of a MOD you must ensure doing so does not violate licensing of the MOD. You must provide a link to the add-on. Either to an official download site provided by the MOD creator or to the release thread. Preferably you would provide both. Keep in mind that any forum of sharing must be in line with the licensing of the add-on creator. (Optional) let us all know why you think each add-on belongs in your list and how you feel this list is tied together. Significant artistic licence is not only allowed but encouraged in the regard. if you choose to contribute more than one list please maintain only one post for all of your lists that you may share. What role do you play in all of this? I will be maintaining the OP. My job is to keep the user generated lists organized and user friendly. When I share your list I will share your user name, a link to your MOD list, and the name of your mod list if provided. So I want to have a discussion about the list, is that OK? Oh yes! I so very much hope we have many, many discussions here. Please discuss, as long as it is on topic and does not violate forum rules or the rule below: Without further ado: The Busy Father’s Essential MOD’s by mcirish3.

  3. I'm not sure if I just suck at googling as of late..but if I'm the first so be it. I've been trying to figure out how to give suggestions to the mod community. I don't have many and I started this thread only thinking about one in particular. But if there isn't any other place, id like this to be a place where players can give their ideas, some may be extravagant, some small and practical. but I've always wondered how all these mods get created without some central brainstorming type area. I could plead to ksp devs themselves, but this seems more promising. If I'm in the wrong place, please kindly point me in the right direction and ill repost there, or a mod can just move this..to there, thanks. Anyways lets get it started. Suggestion: (Asparagus style?) [3/4/6/8]Multipoint Struts Reason: structural integrity/rigidity Practicality: (-)part count, stockalike? Balancing: scale weight based on number of connection points (3 point= 1.5x weight, 4 point= 2x weight, etc, etc) Idea Summary: a few extra stock alike strut parts. placing large amounts of aerodynamic wings or engines in symmetry, requires many struts sometimes. this will help ease the part count, and prevent your wings from doing the "dragonfly wing effect" as id like to call it when trying to fly without ship rigidity. googling dragon fly slo mo videos will help you understand my analogy if you dont already. . Cheers!
  4. (WORKS FOR PC AND MAC) (Does not work if you don't have Steam!) 1. Download the folder. If you are reading this right now, go to Get mods up at the top, then choose the mod you want and press download. Make Sure you aren't downloading stuff from ads! 2. Drag the folder from your downloads to your desktop. (If you're on PC, Just open your Downloads folder.) 3. Extract the folder (if you're on Mac you can just right click the folder in your desktop and click open, If you're on PC, You don't have to do this, Just open up the folder.) 4. Now, Open Steam, right click on Kerbal Space Program and click properties. 5. Up at the top go to Local Files, then press Browse Local Files, then take the GameData Folder from the mod folder, (If on Mac, Rename it to whatever you want) then Drag it into Kerbal Space Programs GameData Folder, Open up the Mod GameData Folder and if there are any folders named after other folders in the KSP Folder Outside of the original GameData Folder, Drag it into the appropriate folder,Then you are Done! Psst, You, Yes You. For More Helpful Mod tips click my name, Follow me, feel free to tell me how to insert screenshots into posts, and post any questions in my feed. Thanks.
  5. For everyone interested in updates to their favorite add-ons, please do not pester modders in the add-on thread, modders volunteer their time and requests or inquiries for updates just derail threads and will not make updates come any sooner. Check the first post of an add-on thread for news. If there is no news in the first post there is likely no update. Modders are asked to keep their first posts up to date so their fans can stay informed. Thank you.
  6. I'm thinking of building a web service to help people simplify their mod installs/updates process. Functionality: Mods would be submitted to the system with their name, link to github/curse download links, description of mod, etc. Users would be able to search for and add mods to their basket. When all their mods are added to the basket, they would be able to download a zip file of all the mods properly organized into the gamedata folder. Then just unpack this one zip file and overwrite the 'gamedata' folder to update all their mods. The mods you selected will be saved for the next time you want to upgrade. Groups of mods can be shared by developers, or by popular channels. Imagine watching a video, and then being able to download their exact mods list in a few clicks. Feasibility: The basic software to make this is not overly complicated. I'm just wondering if this sort of thing would be useful, or if someone has already done something similar?
  7. An Alpha release of the website. Questions answered below. Q: What is the website for? A: Hosting mods...thats it. Q: Whats the domain? A: www.kryoworks.com CURRENTLY THERE ARE NO MODS UPLOADED, I BROUGHT THE SITE ONLINE TO ALLOW MOD DEVELOPERS TO UPLOAD THEIR MODS AND TO TEST THE WEBSITES STABILITY.
  8. KerbalStuff was one of the biggest 3rd party Kommunities for KSP add-ons and mods. Would you support its return?
  9. I suggest that it is obligatory to include the date of the last version of the Add-On (Mod / Plug-In / Parts) in the title of the thread. Most threads have only the version, having no reference to the day it was updated. This makes it difficult to view and search for new versions of mods, considering most users do not have to write down or memorize all versions of installed mods. PS: If this post is in the wrong place, please move it.
  10. This might not be the right place to post this but....Oh well. I was wondering if i could get any advice on a mod i was trying to develop. the mod basically is a beautification mod. You know the steam you see before a rocket launches from fuel boil off, I was trying to replicate that in KSP. I think that it might be a fairly simple project to start of modding. I was looking for advice such as: What software is used, How long it might take, or were to post my mod once done. any help would be much appreciated. Happy game play. Cheers.
