Historic Missions Pack A collection of contracts for a stock or modded game spanning from the 1930's to 2016 (currently), created using Contract Configurator. Includes compatibility with Real Solar System. Description: This pack currently adds 603... yes you read correctly... 603 contracts to the base game following the historic progression of both NASA and its Russian counterparts, each mission has been made into a contract for the game. I aimed to make a campaign of sorts following through a contract to reach the next, starting with the earliest Sputnik/Vostok and Mercury missions and finally resulting in the International Space Station. Contents: - V-2 Rocket Tests (German 1944, American No.20 and Russian R-1V) - Sputnik-1,2 & 3 - Vostok 1-6 - Mercury 1-7 - Voskhod 1 & 2 - Gemini 1 - 12 - Apollo 1 & 7 - 17 - Soyuz 1 - SoyuzTM-30 (82 missions) - Apollo-Soyuz Test Mission - Salyut 1 - 7 - Mir Construction - ISS Construction - Space Shuttle Missions (STS-1 - STS-135) - Pioneer 1 - 11 - Mariner 1 - 10 - Voyager 1 & 2 - Buran Test Flight - Skylab 1 - 4 - Venera 1 - 16 - Shenzhou 1 - 10 - Tiangong - 1 - Cassini-Huygens - Magellan - Ulysses - Galileo - MESSENGER - Surveyor 1 - 7 - Lunokhod 1 & 2 - Pathfinder rover - Curiosity, Spirit and Opportunity rovers - Rosetta, Dawn, Hayabusa, Genesis, Sakigake, Suisei, NEAR Shoemaker, Juno and New Horizons - Ranger 7, 8 and 9 - Shuttle Enterprise ALT Tests 15 & 16 - Vega Program - Kepler, HSO and JWST - X-15 Mach Record flights - Helios 1 & 2 - Explorer 1-5 - ISS Expeditions (SoyuzTM-31 - SoyuzTMA-06M) - Vanguard 1 - 3 - Cancelled Shuttle and Moonbase missions - Poppy & Nimbus Programs - Foton Program - Space X Missions * RSS version included for all contracts. ** I have produced a series of Example Payloads for the Space Shuttle Missions, to use these, you must install RemoteTech and ScanSat. Drag and drop the Example Craft into your saves/*yourSaveNameHere*/Ships/VAB. Future Plans: - The Zond Program - Soyuz-Progress. - More detail for the memorial missions of STS-51-L, STS-107, Soyuz-1, Soyuz-11 and Apollo-I. * If anyone has any suggestions on more future missions which I may have missed please either post in this thread or send me a direct message. Known Issues: -If upgrading to a newer version of this Pack (newer than 1.1.0), delete the following files from your GameData directory after installing the new version: Module Manager.ConfigCache Module Manager.Config.SHA I have no idea why but these can sometimes prevent new contracts from being displayed after an update. Practical note: To get the most out of this pack I would recommend some historically accurate part mods (list below). I am personally running Linux x64 so... MOAR MODS !!! But for any Windows users I would recommend installing a mod pack (such as FASA for the early Mercury, Gemini and Apollo missions), completing the contracts and then uninstalling, and then subsequently installing a mod pack for the next series of contracts (Such as Tantares for the Mir/Soyuz missions) in order to save that precious 3.2gb Ram... Dependencies: Contract Configurator V1.15.1 or greater - Required for any contract to work. I would recommend some historic vehicles mods such as: the Component Space Shuttle (Dev or Unofficial), FASA, Tantares, Kosmos, OMSK, US Probe Pack for some realistic parts. Furthermore for some more meaningful missions E.g(STS payloads), install Remote Tech, Scan Sat or BDArmoury... or all of them!
