  1. This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 4.0 International License. Tantares (For Kerbal SpaceProgram 1.10.X) Description Tantares is three mods! All of them standalone, and with zero dependencies: Tantares: Soviet crewed spacecraft, space station, and LEO spacecraft. TantaresLV: Soviet launch vehicles and upper stages. TantaresSP: Soviet interplanetary probes. 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. Content TantaresLV Kosmos 2I, Kosmos 3M, Soyuz, Zenit. Proton, Energia-M, Energia, N1. Briz-M, Briz-KM, Blok-D, Fregat. Content Tantares Polyus, Meteor, Progress (new and old), Fobos. Vostok, Soyuz (Many versions), LOK. ASTP Soyuz, LK Lander, LK-700 lander, TKS, VA. Mir, Almaz, Salyut. Sokol flight suit (Provided by Benjee10), Orlan EVA suit. Content TantaresSP Venera 1VA, Mars 1M 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 no dependences, but have patches to add KIS and 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. If you're using TantaresSP, one of my other mods, Neptune Camera, will add extra functionality to the camera parts. Download Links You can get Tantares on both GitHub, Spacedock, and CKAN. and and and and 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. Recolours and Extras Special thanks to everyone who has contributed and helped out with this! Friznit's Tantares Wiki. Well's IVA patch.
  2. 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: 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:
  3. Pay to Play (or get ready for the consequences) Download from Github or via CKAN Tested on KSP 1.8.1, 1.9.0 and 1.10.0 Dependency - Module Manager Recommendation - KCT (14 Jul 2020) Compatible with: Kerbalism (kerbalism's engine reliability is removed) Procedural Parts (SRBs) EngineIgnitor (ignitions number is handled by P2P) ReStock+ (configs for engines) SETI-Rebalance and SETI-ProbeParts (configs for engines, including proc. HRB) Licence - MIT What is this? This is a brand new mod to make you pay for reusing vehicles above just refueling them. Had a ride on your "Falcon" or SSTO? - Pay for the maintenance or the next flight will likely have a bad outcome. The changing cost of the engines also causes maintenance take time in case of using KCT - what a nice interaction. The gameplay 1. Add an engine provided with an EngineDecay MODULE to your craft 2. Choose rated burn duration and number of ignitions (if the engine needs them) 3. Start the flight 4. Your engines stop working if they fail or run out of ignitions. There is a 1% chance that the engine fails before it has been burnt for the "rated time". For more detail see a .docx in GameData/PayToPlay folder 5. Recover the craft. If you do not have KCT/use normal recovery, you get no recovery funds for the the engines that have been running (cmon, use KCT xD) 6. KCT recovery only! Press "maintenance" button while editing the craft to have your engine repaired (changing ignitions number, rated duration or some of the procedural SRB stats will make the engine repaired too) 7. You get NO refunds for used engines since 1.4.0. Why? Features Engines fail if they run for too long Engines have limited ignitions "Rated burn time" and number of ignitions can be configured while editing a vessel These tweaks increase engine's cost and mass Ignitions have configurable chances to be wasted and to cause a failure Configurable chanse of engine destruction on failure Speical treatment for SRBs (failures only on ignitions), see how to turn it on [here]( or provided configs Ignition failure, failure on ignition and destruction on failure probability depend on reliability progress Procedural S/HRBs have separate reliability progress for "models". In order to gain usage experience on further recovery, press "Set as a New Model" button (if it is present) Configurable thrust and diameter margins for procedural S/HRB "models" Recovered engines improve "reliability", reducing early failure chance It makes sense to have 4-6 burn tests before using a recently developed engine Configurable oncoming failure warnings and switchable autoshutdown on warning Replace-or-Maintenance system Some sort of engine stats configuration Yet a bit of words The mod is extremelly new (started on Apr 20, 2020). Get ready to report bugs and suggest features. Only stock, MH, SETI engines and ProceduralParts SRBs are provided with configs. Use your brain and hands to write copypaste the configs for all the other engines. Examples can be found in GameData/PayToPlay/Support/Stock. A lot of thanks to kerbalism's contributors as their open source has been the documentation for me! Mod logo by @Avira Latest Version Changes v1.5.4.4 Added: subjectToProgress flag to configs, setting it to false turns reliability progress off for parts, removing need to test them. Set the new sTP = false for nuclear, ion and SRBs. Tweaked reduced maintenance and ignition restore costs by 5 times. Note: For engines with no ignition limits "replace: 0" button appears for newly added parts. Not fixed yet, no problems detected too. Previous Versions Changelog
  4. Latest Release Spacedock Source Original mod by: @tgruetzm Continuation by: Angel-125 Snacks was originally published by tgruetzm in August of 2014. It offered a novel and lightweight solution to life support for those that didn't want the complexity of more sophisticated mods like TAC Life Support. This new version rebuilds the original code base in order to: Configure all sorts of options including snacks consumed per day, snacks per meal, and recycling rates. Days are calculated based on the homeworld's solar day, not the default 6/24 hours per day. Rescaled homeworld planets are supported! Provides a penalty system that won't brick your game. Run multithreaded simulations on your vessels to estimate how long your Snacks will last- ElectricCharge production & consumption are included! Maintain the lightweight feel while offering lots of customization. Want more challenge? Check out the addons in the LifeSupportResources folder: Air - Kerbals need Fresh Air to breathe in addition to Snacks to eat. They’ll faint and die without it! Your vessels are automatically equipped with a supply of Fresh Air, and you can make more from Oxidizer via the stock ISRU parts, or recycle Stale Air using the stock Hitchhiker. Stress - Cramped quarters can stress out kerbals and they’ll refuse to work! They aren’t tourists, they’ll just stop using their skills to help your mission. Other events cause Stress as well. Reduce Stress by hanging out in the stock Hitchhiker- but kerbals won’t have their skills available while they rest. Or make your own life support resource to track using the above config files as examples! If you're new to Snacks, please consult the KSPedia.

  5. EnvironmentalVisualEnhancements - Clouds and City Lights EnvironmentalVisualEnhancements (a.k.a. EVE) is a mod for KSP that adds clouds and city lights. It is highly configurable and a number of other mods provide improved clouds not just for the stock planets, but for other planets provided by other mods. The mod works on KSP 1.8, and older versions are also available. This thread is a continuation of @rbray89's original EVE thread, so that we can continue updates and discussions. Installation The mod is distributed as two ZIP files, one small one which contains the plugin and shaders, and one large one which contains a sample configuration. If you are installing another mod which supplies EVE configurations, such as SVE, you should not install the sample configs. If you use CKAN, select EnvironmentalVisualEnhancements and then choose a config (if only one is available, that one will auto-select). If you are installing manually, download the latest ZIP files from and unpack them into your KSP directory. The zip files include the "GameData" directory and so this should merge with the same-named directory in your KSP installation, such that after installing, your KSP's GameData directory will contain the "Squad" directory shipped with the game, the "EnvironmentalVisualEnhancements" directory which you just installed, and, if you installed the sample configs, a BoulderCo directory. Configs for other mods are generally shipped in their own directories. It is strongly recommended that you use the 64-bit version of KSP when using EVE, especially with advanced configurations. Note that you will not necessarily see any clouds on Kerbin in the main menu, and they may flicker. Load a game to check if you've successfully installed the mod. If you wish to install for KSP versions prior to KSP 1.2, see the original thread, but note that there is little support for old versions. Compatibility with other Mods EVE is compatible with most mods, but in particular it is tested to inter-operate well with these visual mods: Scatterer - makes atmospheres realistically "haze". PlanetShine - makes the glow from planets/moons produce ambient light. Stock Visual Terrain - make the terrain detail of the stock planets much better quality. There are also a number of excellent mods that provide advanced configurations beyond the sample ones shipped alongside EVE: Stock Visual Enhancements (SVE) - high quality visuals, recommended for higher-end systems. Para-Sci High-Performance Atmosphere Pack - sleek but still beautiful visuals, even less CPU/GPU demanding than the basic configuration. Be sure to remove the sample configs (the "GameData/BoulderCo/" directory) if you manually install a mod that provides all its own configurations. If installing via CKAN, you will be prompted with what needs removing. If using the Real Solar System mod, you will need different configurations, such as: Real Solar System Visual Enhancements If using the Outer Planets Mods, you will probably want to add EVE for those too, such as: Pood's Outer Planets Mod Visual Overhaul Performance EVE runs fine on mid-range systems. See the alternative configurations above for different performance characteristics. The most expensive effect is currently the volumetric clouds. You can turn these off in the in-game configuration dialog, or by editing the configs with a text editor. Obviously the more cloud layers, the more costly are the effects. By default, only cloud layers within 10km of the camera can produce volumetric clouds. Note that while some outdated information online recommends using the -force-d3d11 option, this is not needed with 64-bit KSP (which you should definitely be using if using EVE), and has been reported to possibly cause memory leaks. Configuration The sample configuration includes a single layer of clouds and city lights for Kerbin and cloud layers for other stock planets/moons as appropriate. You can modify the configuration in-game by pressing Alt-0 (zero), though be warned that this is an advanced feature. If you save broken configs you will need to re-install your chosen configs. There is no undo. Documentation for the config files is currently pending, but note that since EVE-1.2-1, the _MinLight option has been changed. It should be set to 0 (the default) unless you want clouds to glow on the night side (eg. auroras). Also note the relatively new "UVNoise" setting, which allows adding noise to the texture look-ups, either for large animated cloud effects (see Jool), or to mask pixelization in fine detail (see Kerbin). Pretty Pictures and Videos For now, see the original thread for slightly outdated pictures and videos. If you have ones you wish to display here, provided they are short and contain no revenue-generation, just ask. Contributing If you have code changes you would like to contribute to the core plugin or shaders, please submit a Pull Request on the GitHub project: If you have major config changes you would like to contribute, these are probably best supplied to users as an independent mod, in the same way as others listed above like SVE. If you can find a nice way to make use of the BumpMap config, let me know! If you'd like to donate, be aware that I'm only maintaining the great work of @rbray89, but you can donate from the CurseForge EVE page.
  6. So I've seen some mods with Spaceplanes such as the X-15, DreamChaser, IXV, GOGI, ISRO,Hermes, and X-24. But these are not modular like most ksp parts which kinda is not right since this game is a building game and most parts are modular so I decided to draw a concept for a modular spaceplane parts mod which fits in with the stock cross sections. The mod would also need custom landing gear as the stock ones don't really fit in as much.
  7. This pack provides realistic models of SpaceX's rockets and spacecraft, made for your Stock Kerbal Space Program installation. Crew Dragon Starlink Satellite Falcon 9 with parts to make all of its versions: Block 5, Full Thrust, 1.1, 1.0 Falcon Heavy Falcon 1 Interplanetary Transport System [2016 version] ASDS Droneship "Just Read the Instructions" and "Of Course I Still Love You" Landing Zone 1 You will find all flown Merlin versions (M1Ci, M1C, M1CV, M1D, M1DV and its subsequent upgrades), Raptor and Kestrel, 22 different payload fairing textures from real missions, booster and fairing recovery hardware, different textures for the booster, 4 different textures for Crew Dragon and 2 textures for the drone ship ("Of Course I Still Love You" and "Just Read The Instructions") included. Download from Spacedock Installation Follow the instructions in the included "readme" file. You can choose to install the parts at their real sizes or at a stock-compatible size (2.5m). The following mods are recommended to be installed as well: Textures Unlimited for shiny, metallic looking parts by @Shadowmage Animated Decouplers for retracting Crew Dragon trunk umbilical by @Starwaster RetractableLiftingSurface for a working fairing parafoil by @linuxgurugamer Launch Towers Pack for realistic launch towers by @sciencepanda Note that Module Manager by @sarbian is required to make the rescaled configs and some of the above mentioned mods to work. Realism Overhaul support is currently pending. Changelog Known Issues Media All rights reserved.
  8. IMPORTANT This mod is now officially unsupported, I will keep the download up though. For an up to date version go to this thread: Vulcan rocket Vulcan This is the next generation rocket from ULA Includes: Tanks for Centaur and ACES Main tank BE-4 first stage engine RL-10 second stage engine Inflatable heatshield Parafoil Fairings Interstages Pictures: Recommended: If you want to launch the B330 orbital Moon base install this awesome mod from @bcink: Issues: Do not make the lower engine fairing the first part of the craft, I don't know why but the BE-4 won't be able to gimbal. If only smokescreen is installed so no realplume the engines will give particles even when they are off. Download: Note: This mod uses B9PartSwitch by @blowfish and is included in the download If you have a black tank it's probably a mod conflict with TR(R) or uninstall TR(R) or delete the texture switch part in the config of the tank.

  9. I have created a modpack via CKAN, and when ksp is loading it gets about halfway and sticks on a part. KSP Output log CKAN Mod pack It seems to consistently become stuck on "Loading Drag Cubes" Is this a memory issue?
  10. This post is under construction: FTL Download on SpaceDock, Github or Curseforge. Also available on CKAN. FTF Download on SpaceDock, Github or Curseforge. Also available on CKAN. Field Training Lab (FTL) Field Training Facility (FTF) DELETE OLD/EXISTING installations before installing new. Field Training Lab (FTL): Field Training Facility (FTF) : Continuation of Training Lab and Field Training Facility. Originally by @Efour, now continued by zer0Kerbal with support from the community. This mod provides a training system for your kerbalnauts. The New Look: If you want to train your kerbal immediately, you can use this mod. [1.9.1+] Training Laboratory Spacedock - CKAN (Dependency : Module Manager ) This mod provides Training method with consuming Science points. Paying 20 sci, your kerbal can get 1 exp. Since leveling up method is very limited, you have to pay science point once enough to advance level. If your Training Lab is in orbit, Payment will be reduced to half. If your Lab is on other planet, Payment will be reduced to 1/4. You can tweak values with editing .cfg. If you want, you can add this module to other crewed part. It can support up to 8 kerbalnauts. Leveling up 'Immediately' is not realistic? Do you think training needs to consume time? This mod will be answer for you. [1.9.1+] Field Training Facility Spacedock - CKAN (Dependency : Module Manager ) This mod is similar with Training Laboratory, But one thing is different. It consumes Time and Electric Charge. If you want level 5 kerbalnaut from level 0, You need to train your kerbal 1 year. Becoming level 1 will only need to wait 13 days, But as you know, high level needs more training. But, If you place your facility into orbit, It will be 4 times faster. If you place it on other planet, 6 times faster. You can tweak params with .cfg. Not so complex. It consumes 4 EC/sec per kerbal. If you train 2 kerbals, It will drain 8 EC/sec. You will need powerful energy sources. Now then, someone like me will want to use both. Then, just install both of them. Result is shown below. Payment of science point(TL) will be reduced with training experiences(FTF). For example - Just using TL, Level 4 -> Level 5 consumes 640p of Science point. But Level 4(50% with FTF) -> Level 5 consumes just 320p of science point. If 90% with FTF? Just pay 64p of science point or wait some more days. you can get level 5 kerbalnaut. More training means less sci point needed, linearly. These two mod can co-work, It's because I created this thread. If you want one thing, you can install just one mod. If you want co-work of them, you can install both. --- Review by --- Find original thread here.

  12. does any body have any idea where I could find mods for ULA rockets for v1.10.1 ,if yes, plz share the link
  13. I saw a mod to store entire ships inside a single container. This would be really useful with some interplanetary colonies What is this mod? I cant seem to find it
  14. I released my first mod for ksp "ULTIMATE BOMBS" I'm so happy, but there's a problem like attaching on the armament rail, the textures of bombs are not amazing , but I'm proud of my creation, I think creates a second mod on the wings! my mod: NEED BDArmory: only 3 bombs for the moment (Lincence:MIT) from spacedock NOW THE V1.2 ,is here for add 3 bombs in the mod!!!!!!!!!!
  15. I've had an idea of a fuel tank, which simultaneously has extra service bays for fuel, craft etc. The question is, how do I do it? The model is done, just the programming is what I'm missing.
  16. Does anybody have this mod in their folders? anywhere the mod's downloads were deleted sadly.
  17. Hello all cosmonauts! This is my first post in the community, I hope to post this in the right place. I'm a graphic designer, and I've worked on some mods for other games. But KSP is my passion and I would like to collaborate with the community. I decided to do some tests for an improved interface in the graphic aspect, without intervening in the size, functions or positions of the elements, just perform in reskin of the interface. (especially for QHD and 4k) Seeking to unify unnecessary colors to decrease unnecessary visual complexity, and also make those long trips to Elo more comfortable. The idea is to use flatter textures, with greater contrast when necessary and greater clarity in the shapes. This is a very easy redesign job to apply to the game if the configuration and texture files can be easily modified. With KSP I am a little confused on how to start the work so I decided to ask the community for help to form a team and work on the aspects that I do not know about the game. I have always worked alone, without sharing many of the mods I made, but I think that should change, and the KSP community is one of the best to start learning and sharing experiences.
  18. Race into Space 2020 is a new series of Race into Space (original thread here). Using the Race into Space mod by @soundnfury, Race into Space is an Asynchronous multiplayer mod for Realism Overhaul/Realistic Progression 1. Each player chooses their launch site, and must compete to set milestones as quickly possible, and then sync their games through the Race into Space mod. Submissions are closed, but further details on RiS and RO/RP-1 can be found in the RO Discord server here.
  19. kOS Scriptable Autopilot System v1.2.0.0 for KSP 1.8.1 (This is a continuation of the old thread about the kOS mod: ( 1.2.2 kOS scriptable autopilot system ).) kOS (Kerbal Operating System) is an autopilot you script yourself. kOS is to programming, what Kerbal Space Program itself is to rocket science. You don’t have to know what you’re doing to get started, but you may find yourself learning a lot by accident as you play with it. And if you already know a lot about programming, it will still be able to hold your interest. kOS is meant to scale with the skill level of the user. You can start off doing very small simple things with it, and get more and more into using its features as you go. Example: print "Launching". lock steering to heading(90,80). lock throttle to 1. stage. wait until altitude > 5000. lock steering to heading(90,60). wait until altitude > 15000. lock steering to heading(90,45). wait until altitude > 25000. lock steering to heading(90,30). until apoapsis > 80000 { print "apoapsis is " + round(apoapsis,0). wait 0. } lock throttle to 0. // ..etc... What it does kOS introduces a few new parts that each contain a simulated computer capable of running programs written in its own scripting langauge called kerboscript. The computer has powerful smarts built in to the hardware that allow it to do complex spacecraft operations in one command, thus making it possible to make complex programs with only a few lines of script text. The intent of kOS is to be a fully in-game item that lives inside the Kerbal’s universe. The program isn’t running on your own gaming computer, but rather it’s being run in a virtual machine that is simulated in the underlying Unity engine. History kOS was originally begun as a mod by a single author, Kevin Laity aka Nivekk. Although the project has undergone massive changes since then and now has a very different underlying archetecture and is under active development by a different set of people, none of that would have been possible without his original vision and work.

  20. Download Here EVE is bundled, but be sure to check EVE page for updates as i will not be updating this mod often. Pics: (some may be outdated, will get updated as i get good screenies) Features: *Minimalistic design with focus on performance and full scatterer compatibility (not required to run mod, best to not use it when performance is an issue). *All planets but Gilly and Bop (geometric limitation) have atmospheric scatter or glow effects rendered via EVE cloud layers. Colors are generally highly saturated to give a more sci-fi universe feel compared to the more white and washed out realistic style used in most other mods like SVE. *Kerbin, Duna, Eve, Jool and Laythe have cloud layers. All volumetric layers (Kerbin, Laythe, Eve, ect) are kept minimalistic in thickness and useage to maximize performance while still creating as good an effect as possible. *Some airless bodies have fog/dust effects. Color choice is fairly varied, with some planets having highly colorful fog while others use a more greyish color. Duna has dust storms and Eeloo has blizzards. Moho has something akin to burning air. Particle density is kept to a minimum to keep performance up. While i cannot speak for everyone, my mid range laptop is capable of handling this mod as well as 2 1000 part warships in low orbit around any planet. Changelog: V-1.5 *File structure redone to make it easier for people to choose which effects they want or do not want without having to go the extra step and remove or edit configs. Currently split into: atmospheres: kerbin, eve, lathe, jool, duna, consider disabling if you use scatterer for a very minor frame boost clouds: renders clouds on planets that use atmospheres effect glow: similar effect to atmospheres but applies to non atmospheric planets dust: renders all the 3d particles near the ground, very cinematic but eats much more frames then the other effects so if your GPU starts crying try disabling this 1st *Overhaul of every glow layer. Edges of almost all planets have a distinctive and noticeable glow effect. Considerably improves contrast, light side actually looks like its reflecting light, dark side is truly dark. I did my absolute best to minimize artefacting present from stock EVE bugs, but a few rare cases still exist... *Many tweaks to particles to both improve visuals and cut down on needless lag (some effects like laythe rain is only visible right next to the camera, as its very hard to notice it far away in the 1st place given how light it is). Altered axis of many particle fields to make them move in different directions and not always east. *Improved laythe rain fx, now only visible at very short ranges, smaller particle size, slightly increased particle density to compensate (performance net increase). Also changed laythe clouds a bit *Added fire effect to moho, high velocity clouds occasionally zip past craft on the surface. Tried not to overdo the effect so the particles are rather thin and spaced out, will look into improving this for later versions. Also, removed moho's aura effect as it adds performance cost and is barely even noticeable during normal gameplay (you only really see it in very very high orbit around moho). For those that really liked it use glow.bak instead of glow.cfg. V-1.4 *Optimized to work alongside stock scatterer (download and install this separately, not packaged with this mod), *Redone or tweaked textures for Kerbin, Duna, Eve, and Laythe. Some new textures, some altered previous textures. *Added uvnoise feature to all major cloud maps to help eliminate jagged edge problems. Not a perfect solution, but it allows lower resolution detail textures and still keeps the cloud layers looking decent. *Few alterations to colors, particle density, ect. *Rain fx added to Laythe. *Mod now broken up into 3 separate files, the base mod (required dependancy), with optional cloud and dust addons. All come in a single zip file, but you can easily pick what features you want. V-1.3 *Huge overhaul of Kerbin, Duna, and Laythe. Completely redone textures (cloud maps, detail textures, particle textures). Detail textures are vastly improved with 2 of em being 4096x4096 to allow a good variety of cloud styles within a single layer without creating obvious tiling issues. *Brand new particle sprites for all planets with a bit more focus on overall quality. *More varied particle maps which makes each planet have a different thickness and level of particle coverage, no more reusing the same detail textures for half the planets. *Many other alterations too minor to bother mentioning, try it out to find out. V-1.2 *New custom cloud maps in 4096x2048 (8192x4096 for Kerbin), unique to every planet. Styles vary from purely sci-fi to semi-realistic depending on the planet for variety's sake. *Three new higher resolution detail textures which are both high res and do not give tiling issues when viewed from far away. Currently textures are for cumulus, cirrus, and a sci-fi one. *Seven new particle textures. Three are for clouds, all of which are wispy in nature and optimized to look good with very low particle density. Four are for the surface effects which vary from some particulates floating around to full blown dust storms. *Few minor color adjustments to improve looks with the new cloud textures. V-1.1 *Improved detail textures. *Minor changes to atmosphere and glow colors. V-1.0 *Initial release. Support: Due to a lack of time in my life i am not offering support of any kind officially. I may or may not update this mod when/if i get time on vacations or whatnot, but i currently have a full time job, family to take care of, and what little downtime i have available i cannot really spend on videogame modding. It was a pleasure working on this mod (and a few others), but for now im officially on hiatus, and as such ive modified the licensing to allow anyone to do anything with the mod or resources solong as it remains freely available for everyone to enjoy (that means no using any of my work to make money without my explicit permission). If you are having trouble installing, please post on the thread, and someone with technical knowledge on the forum should be able to help you. You may use all art assets and parts of this mod as you please, credit is appreciated but its not like im gonna chase anyone down if they dont. You are free to redistribute identical and modified copies of this mod. Also, absolutely no commercial use without explicit permission period, im not making any money on this free mod and neither will anyone else. And liscense for EVE itself which is packaged alongside mod:
  21. Hey all, How do you set up engines such as the ELF Plasma Thruster in KSP InterstellarFuelSwitch in 1.8.1? I've tried attaching it directly to the Molten Salt Reactor and then also the Open Cycle Gas Core Fission Reactor, but it can never go above 0.00001 kN of thrust. I'm obviously doing something wrong, but all the tutorials are so out of date. What makes it even more confusing is that when I deploy the Gigantor XL Solar Panels, the engine can suddenly produce up to 0.00800 kN out of nowhere. Basically, could someone please explain to me how to set up plasma, fusion, and thermal engines in this mod? I can't get anywhere with it. Thanks
  22. I've always felt that stock Kerbal Space Program, along with tons of other mods, are lacking in one particular area. Solid Rocket Boosters. SRBs of different sizes are usually included in a larger parts pack, meaning I would need to install a massive pack for just a few parts! Sure, there's other SRB mods but they are either: 1. Small 2. Ugly 3. Old and abandoned 4. Not having what I need! So, if I can't find it, I'll make it! Introducing Kastor! Kastor is a mod that will add SRBs of all different shapes and sizes for any need you may have! In the future, I also plan on creating a system of modular boosters, with segments and engines. As I develop Kastor, I'll post my progress in this thread, and in the future when Kastor is closer to completion (or initial release), I'll open a release thread. When will Kastor come out? When it's finished. I don't know a date. Stay tuned!
  23. This is a small mod which adds a detailed Airbus A330-900neo into the game. You will find detailed models and textures, custom sounds for the engines and landing gears, 3 liveries (White, Black, Airbus) as well as a modelled 3D cockpit and cabin. The plane is configured for stock, with flight characteristics based on a comparable stock-part aircraft. At a cruising speed of 220m/s at 3500-4500m altitude, a range of 2100km or fuel for 3h will be enough to cover all major routes on Kerbin. I've limited the crew capacity to 30 (+2 pilots) for performance reasons. Please note that the parts are not designed for a modular use in other crafts. Download from Spacedock I recommend you to install my Airplane Autopilot as well. Known issues All rights reserved.
  24. I am trying to download TAC Life Support through the Twitch desktop app. Downloads fine, but whenever I launch the game 2 tabs come up saying "TAC was installed to the wrong directory", and "Missing Modular Manager". Any help here?
  25. Download on SpaceDock or Github or Curseforge. Also available on CKAN. SimpleConstruction! (SC!) This mod aims to provide simple craft building capability in flight mode to stock parts. adopted for curation by @zer0Kerbal from @EricWi from @RealGecko Originally created by MatterBeam Description After testing out Extraplanetary Launchpads and Roverdude's MK/OKS, @MatterBeam had the idea of creating a simple, user friendly mod that would allow you to build rockets without taking a 200MB hit to RAM or having to juggle multitudes of resource pathways. If you know how to set up a drill, ISRU and a fuel tank for an Ore to Fuel conversion, then you should know how to build rockets. Features No extra parts No RAM usage Added functionality for the Mobile Processing Lab in the late game Simple, configurable and adds levels of depth to the game play without a learning curve Documentation: remember - this is the FULL manual and not written for SimpleConstruction!
