  1. Melantu Atmospheric Harvesting v1.0 Tired of lugging around heavy mining equipment for your Interplanetary ISRU? Looking for a compact ISRU for your Single-Stage-To-Laythe Planes? Have no fear, for now you can create fuel from the air around you! Melantu Atmospheric Harvesting (MAH) is a small mod to complement the Stock ISRU with atmospheric harvesting and converting. Specifically, it is designed to turn Carbon Dioxide in the atmospheres of Duna, Eve, and Laythe (and Kerbin, though I'm not sure why you would need it) into Liquid Fuel and Oxidizer. This mod is inspired by Mars Direct (its chemistry), The Martian (its power requirements), and the MOXIE experiment on the Mars 2020 rover (its form factor). It is a repurposed Atmospheric Fluid Spectro-Variometer, that can turn a small liquid hydrogen supply into a large amount of Liquid Fuel and Oxidizer using less power than the PB-NUK RTG. Sounds too good to be true? Well it takes a really long time, and only works in atmospheres. It Takes about 33 hours to fill up an FL-T100, 88.5 Kerbin Days to fill up a Rockomax 16, and 354 Kerbin Days to fill up a Big Orange Tank. In addition to the Basic LFO, there are more specialized ISRU Modes including Methalox, Water, and Oxygen, designed to play well with mods like Life Support and Rational Resources. (note: at this point, RealFuels is not supported) Dependencies This mod would not be possible without other mods doing the Heavy Lifting. Specifically this Mod Requires Community Resource Pack by Roverdude (included in Download) ModuleManager by sarbian and Ialdabaoth (included in Download) Recommended Mod CryoTanks by Nertea (separate download) (the best way to get Liquid Hydrogen Tanks, required for the sample craft) Future Plans 1.1: Proper Agency implementation, Contracts to bring back samples of CO2 1.2: Larger/Faster/More Expensive Parts with integrated tanks (aka I have to learn how to model and texture) 1.?.?: RealFuels support (I look at those cfg files and my brain just breaks) Licensing My cfg files are licensed under the MIT License Bundled Mods are licensed under their own licenses Download Primary: SpaceDock Secondary: GitHub A look at the included sample craft, a Duna Ascent Vehicle, as well as the basic MOXIE stats The Sample DAV on Duna at night, slowly processing CO2 and LH2 into LFO More images of the Sample DAV and an Example Mission: https://imgur.com/a/ff7WDuG
  2. 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 1, Venera 9, Venera 9 Lander 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.

Module Manager - Used for internal patching and adjustments. Changelog: FAQ What is this mod? BDB adds parts. Lots of parts. Nearly 400 parts, including launchers, spacecraft, and probes, all in a stockalike style. The focus lies primarily on the US space program up through the Apollo program, though some modern parts exist. They are not perfect replicas, but rather take inspiration directly from existing designs. Care has been taken to research and include pieces for projects that were proposed but never happened, to increase the possibilities available to the player. Parts are made in a lego frame of mind, and screenshots of your unique franken creations are always appreciated! The mod is not recommended for new players, as the mod adds a good deal of clutter to the VAB lists. The mod also adds new standard sizes (such a 0.9375m, 1.5m and 1.875m diameter) of parts in order to more accurately scale to KSP. Now, 400 parts sounds like it would kill your PC. While the mod certainly is large, the memory overhead is likely lower than you would expect. Care has been taken to ensure the mod is efficient, with methods such as enforcing a strict texel density (a technique I have only used since mid-2017, so the older assets might not be as efficient) and texture atlasing to cram several parts onto each texture sheet. For those familiar with KSP mods, BDB can be considered a stockalike equivalent of FASA, and a US counterpart to Tantares' soviet rockets. The parts are really overpowered! I managed to take a Mercury Hermes to Mercury Moho. The parts in BDB are balanced and scaled against the stock parts. Unfortunately, due to KSP's tiny solar system, that means that the rockets you build will be more powerful than their real world counterparts. For realistic balance, use something like a 2.5x to 3.2x rescale. Scaling can be accomplished via Sigma Dimensions, and scale preset configs are available through Rescale! You could also try the incredibly awesome JNSQ, which comes natively sized at 2.7x scale and works perfectly with BDB! Well, what do I get? Currently, the mod includes nearly 400 parts! A (non-exhaustive!) list is below: I would like to see X, Y, and Z in game! Awesome! I love having people interested in the mod's development. First, check the roadmap to make sure I haven't already planned on making it. If it's on there, it will get done - eventually. Some day. Hopefully. If not, feel free to ask on the thread. Preferably with pictures, or something. Fair warning - I don't have much of an interest in modern rockets, so don't expect to see things like a Falcon 9 or some such in this mod. I also don't plan on covering anything Soviet - Tantares already does a fine job of representing those in a stockalike style. Right now I'm also sort of swamped, with content planned for upwards of the next year! However, if you have something relevant to what I'm currently working on (ie you can't have X rocket without Y part for it) please speak up - I like to be complete! I don't want to download all this, can you split up the mod? I wish it was that easy! At this point, splitting up the mod would be a good deal of work, as well as additional overhead to maintain. Additionally, despite the frequency this gets asked, nobody seems to agree on how the mod should be split up! However, the mod is easily prunable. Deleting folders inside Gamedata/Bluedog_DB/Parts/ will delete that part family without breaking other parts of the mod. For finer pruning, mods like Janitor's Closet can be used to remove parts from within the game. There's something wrong with the CKAN configs for BDB! Myself and the other authors do not maintain the CKAN configs for this mod. @linuxgurugamer has graciously volunteered (I think) to look into any issues pertaining to this mod on CKAN. The Apollo Launch Escape System wobbles. Right click on the LES and autostrut it to the heaviest part. If you don't have a button for autostruts, go into settings and turn on "advanced tweakables". The BDB science experiments don't work. Make sure you have DMagicScienceAnimate installed. All the dependencies are included in the download, so make sure you put everything in the GameData folder you downloaded into your KSP's GameData. The Saturn and Centaur engines don't work. Make sure you have CommunityResourcePack installed. All the dependencies are included in the download, so make sure you put everything in the GameData folder you downloaded into your KSP's GameData. I don't have the LDC/Atlas V/other cool parts people are showing off in the thread. Those parts are still in development. If you want them, download the latest dev version. Warning! These are unstable, unfinished, unbalanced, and will probably break your saves! What parts go to which rocket? They all have weird names, and I'm so confused. The parts all have kerbalized names, like the planets in KSP. There's a list of the real names, and how to build real rockets, in the Wiki/Manual. In addition, there's an optional real names config in the `BD_Extras (No Warranty)` folder, though it might not cover all the latest parts. Type tags into part list search box to narrow down the list to related parts. Useful tags * Mercury, Hermes, Redstone, Etoh * Gemini, Leo (Gemini gets you junk, use Leo) * Apollo, Kane * Skylab * Atlas, Bossart, Muo * Titan, Prometheus * Saturn, Sarnus * S1, S1C, S1E, S2, S4, S4B, S4C (Saturn V is very easy to build using stage tags S4B, S2, S1C) * many more Mercury-Redstone/Hermes-Etoh can't reach space! Your TWR is too low. Empty the upper checkered tank - which, in real life, was actually structural with some avionics. Or add more boosters. Your choice. Mercury Redstone Flight Plan: 1. Liftoff (maintain 100% throttle throughout flight). 2. Pitch over eastward about 0.75 degrees per second. 3. Stop pitchover at 45 degrees pitch (10,000 - 15,000 meters height). 4. Hold attitude to burnout. 5. Jettison tower. 6. Separate spacecraft from Redstone. 7. Turn retrograde. 8. Do stuff. 9. Apogee (hopefully 100+ km). 10. Fire retro motor (optional), jettison retro motor, fall back down (not optional). 11. Deploy parachute at 3000 meters. 12. Ticker tape parade (assuming step 11 went well).

  7. I present to you my first parts mod, Bumblebee! A (re)stockalike mod based on NASA's Dragonfly drone, designed to explore Titan-like worlds! Includes a black colour scheme too: album: https://imgur.com/a/lFNv9dI Build Guide: https://github.com/Rodg88/BumbleBee/wiki/Build-Guide Video review from Kottabos: Features include: * Small electric propellers that use @Angel-125's KerbalActuators to give them spinning blades, mirroring, prop blur, and a hover mode. * An antenna that tracks the homeworld (in one axis at least) * A large science payload, including compatibility for some Bluedog Design Bureau and Coatl Probes Plus experiments if those mods are installed. * Compatibility for Near Future Electrical, the probe core will include a large capacitor if installed, to increase flight range. * A parachute/drogue combo with "fancy custom normals", that plug into the 2.5m aerodynamic back shell (which is designed to fit the Restock heat shield), or can be surface attached as a drogue/main set Download: https://spacedock.info/mod/2428/Bumblebee https://github.com/Rodg88/BumbleBee/releases Also on CKAN V0.5 Added variants to the decoupler with 0.625m and 1.25m bottom diameter rings, instead of just the specialized Bumblebee decoupler. Updated Indicator Lights patch to take advantage of new features in v1.7 (commnet connection indicator). V0.4 Added gold and silver foil textures to the Core, Antenna, RTG, and science Sensor. Updated all lenses to have a new reflective texture. Added carbon texture variant to prop parts. V0.3 New dual rotor part for light probes in light atmospheres, based on the NASA Mars Helicopter. Also a long variant of the single truss for the Duna rotor. Added Surface Sample experiment to the landing skid part (requires the Bumblebee Probe core on the same craft to work) Minor fixes to other parts. V0.2: Updated Prop parts. They now activate on Duna, but won't do you much good. Also enabled surface attachment on the single prop, and added ground FX. Also a low power mode for precision flight on low gravity moons. Added glowing LEDs, with compatibility for NFE (blue LED's brightness = capaciter charge) and Indicator Lights (Top Green LED goes yellow/red on low/critical charge). Added Hullcam Patch Download includes B9 Part Switch, Kerbal Actuators, CommunityResourcePack, and DMagicScienceAnimate, which are the hard dependencies, as well as CommunityCategoryKit which is optional (parts all appear in the Rover category).

  11. While messing around thinking of payloads suitable for a Nexus, I started working on a giant 70 foot (half scale) re-entry pod. That thing rapidly became a monster. A single part that's a small town with tanks and labs, and observation decks and it needed cargo space, etc etc. So, eventually my brain suggested the following ideas to me, way later than required to maintain sanity. If instead of making one giant preconfigured pod, I made a series of pod floors, that are interchangeable, then the whole thing becomes reconfigurable. Also, it solves a bunch of problems with large craft the moment there's even one floor. (assuming I'm not completely loony, I'll be starting at the smallest size) So, seeing as the 2.5m to 3.75m pod module is now mostly functional, I'm releasing this into the wild. At this first release, there's four parts. There's a crew quarters part, with a fairly early WIP interior. There's a science lab with a link to that same sketchy interior. This will change later as I furnish the interiors. There's a fairly early WIP fuel tank in two flavours, monoPropellant and dual fuel. Nothing has real fuel or realism overhaul configs yet. Please note: The fuel tanks are by no means complete. But, I'm calling the crewed pod variants "textured". BUT, it's my first attempt at a stock look. So if people have suggestions (apart from the dark-light contrast on the panel dirtiness being too strong, which I know about and am looking at fixing) please let me know. The top and bottom hatchy type image is outright stolen from Squad's large pod. Shamelessly. The rest is me messing about in layers in GIMP, mostly getting stuff on the right layers (but not always, which is why that shading is tricky to fix). Don't forget to look under the flag. :-) Anyway, pics or it didn't happen. (part album here http://imgur.com/a/c2GKt ) Download from SpaceDock http://kerbalspaceprogram.eu/mod/1017/ModularPods [ edit - I thought I'd already put this here, but I haven't.... derp ] Here's the plan, as of writing, of which parts I will be doing. I do stumble on extra things, like the combined heat shield and engine, as I go, so the plan is unlikely to survive exactly as it is to the end. I may also give up before getting to Mk16 parts, but I definitely want to get to at least a size 8 base, maybe more if I rescale my Nexus to 64% instead of 50%. Sizes Size 2 to Size 3 from 2.5m to 3.75m Size 3 to Size 4 from 3.75m to 5m Size 4 to Size 5 from 5m to 6.25m Size 5 to Size 6 from 6.25m to 7.5m Size 6 to Size 7 from 7.5m to 8.75m Size 7 to Size 8 from 8.75m to 10m Size 8 to Size 9 from 10m to 11.25m Size 9 to Size 10 from 11.25m to 12.5m Size 10 to Size 11 from 12.5m to 13.75m Size 11 to Size 12 from 13.75m to 15m Size 12 to Size 13 from 15m to 16.25m Size 13 to Size 14 from 16.25m to 17.5m Size 14 to Size 15 from 17.5m to 18.75m Size 15 to Size 16 from 18.75m to 20m Parts planned for each of the sizes above Service Module A combined fuel tank, battery pack, RCS, antenna unit (Done for Sz2-3) MonoPropellantTank A fuel tank for monopropellant (Done for Sz2-3) BiPropellantTank A fuel tank for liquid fuel and oxidizer (Done for Sz2-3 and Sz3-4) Crew Quarters and Control A control pod with some extra seating (Done for Sz2-3) ScienceLab A science lab with experiments and a science bay (Done for Sz2-3) Cargo Stores things behind doors (Done for Sz2-3) HeatShield Protects things from re-entry heat Battery - might not do this.

  12. Over my time playing Kerbal Space Program and participating in the community, I've repeatedly either felt a need for a part that seems like it should be available in the stock game or caught wind of recurring requests for one part or another to be added, so I finally sat down and listed them all out. They're not in any particular order but are sorted into categories for parts I think are most important to add, parts that maybe aren't so essential but that I at least would find nice, and additions specific to the DLC packages. Many of these parts are already provided via one mod or another, but to obtain all of them would require downloading many different mods, creating issues with compatibility, game balance, and having tons of extra parts that change the game beyond the scope of filling in gaps in the stock parts. Having extra new parts isn't something I'm saying is bad - it's just not the goal here. What I'd like to discuss in this thread includes others nominating parts that the game really seems like it was supposed to have, but more importantly whether I should try to assemble a pack out of existing mod parts (and navigate redistribution permissions) or recreate those that exist (and create afresh the few that don't) and who else is interested in helping, largely as I'm vaguely okay but not that good at 3D modeling or texturing (evidence: my old Jump Drive mod) - certainly not up to par with those who made the game's newer part models. I essentially see this as a collaborative community project, though if it turns out I'm the only one who wants these or can't find useful common ground, I accept the risk of having to try to do it all myself or give up on the whole thing. If the curators of mods that contain these parts are interested, feel free to nominate your own parts for inclusion in this hypothetical pack. This is not a vanity opportunity and in all likelihood parts that don't closely match the stock look, scale, and functionality won't be included as-is, if at all, but if you do have a good fit, perhaps we can combine our work into a holistic one-stop package.

  14. Stockalike Real Fuels Engine Configs For Real Fuels v12.x After playing with Real Fuels, I got hooked. But, many of my part mods' engines were not included. I decided to fix that, and this is the result. Latest Release GitHub Repository Config generator found at http://bit.ly/rfstockalike NOTICE: Some engines have "lost" their effects. This is a known issue, and a result of moving fully to a new engine MODULE in RealFuels. As a result, Real Plume is highly recommended. Configs are included in the RF Stockalike download.

Description This is a stockalike setup for you engines to work with Real Fuels. All of the stock (or part-pack's "stock") numbers for thrust remain the same. Meaning, the Mainsail still pushes the same kN as before. But, the masses are reduced to be in-line with realistic numbers (according to the calculations anyway). There is also an RCS config to make the RCS thrusters work with the appropriate fuels. These have followed the original thrusts but will change given the fuel used. So, a hydrazine RCS will have better thrust than an HTP one, but an MMH/N2O4 bipropellant RCS will have greater thrust still. And yes, bipropellants are set up. This was originally done with the help of Chestburster's XLS that I found in the Real Fuels thread (link here). Since then, I've added mod parts I've either used in the past or use currently. I've also added some variations in the fuel mixture used for each manufacturer (i.e mod). So if you swap out a KW engine for a NovaPunch one, be sure you've got the right mix in the tanks. This adds to the variation in my opinion, as it gives you a reason to switch things up. This is also a continual work in progress. Any suggestions or help is encouraged. I don't have every mod in this file, so if you feel so inclined to add your favorite that's missing, please do. Let me know of the edits and I'll continue to compile a running config. Also, if you'd like to add your thoughts on balancing, please do that as well. I've not rigorously tested every engine, since I don't play with all of these installed and I'd rather simply play than test. So, I may have missed something or goofed some numbers.

  15. So, question 1/2 . Any good mods out there for 3.75m pods? I know about Near Future Spacecraft, Taurus MPCV and HOYO CSM and that's about it. Preferably I'm looking for something Orion or Starliner-syle. -Also, stockalike, please. And question 2/2 . How could I change all the tanks in Interstellar Fuel Switch to use stock and CRP resources instead of the KSPIE resources?

  17. 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.

  18. A splinter faction of the renowned Tantares Space Technologies company, started in the backyard of an ambitious defector, this foundling space agency is slowly growing to become a competitor with the big boys. Q & A: Q: What is "Notantares Space Industries?" A: "Notantares Space Industries" is a mod intended to expand upon the extremely diverse and popular mod Tantares (Much like CONTARES does), including spacecraft and/or rockets that are not included in the main mod (eg: The "Big Soyuz," etc.), as well as various other additions. It is designed to be completely independant from Tantares, so that those who aren't using it can still use the Notantares Space Industries series of mods. Notantares is designed to be released in a series of "mini-packs," much like SXT used to have its own mini-packs, so that those who only want a specific selection of parts can just download those parts. However, it is, most importantly, not Tantares! Q: Can you add X, Y, and Z into the game? A: Thanks for the suggestion! I'll try to expand the mod to include these, but there are priorities. Q: Can you add IVAs? A: I will try to give IVAs to command pods, but for any large station parts, they'll have to wait. Mods: Big Soyuz "Big Khleb." Please Note: The above picture is outdated; The Big Soyuz mod now includes way more rocket parts, and with updated normal maps. DESCRIPTION: "Big Khleb" is an advanced crew transportation spacecraft capable of holding up to 6 kerbonauts, and is unlockable in the mid-to-late tech tree. It is designed to be able to support its crew for long-duration missions to space stations or to assist in lunar expeditions. It shall be designed with its own set of 0.9375m ungendered docking ports, so that those who do not use Tantares can still use the "Big Khleb." Whatever your needs, the "Big Khleb" can fulfil them! It currently includes 3 fully-functional IVAs, a selection of modular command pods, fuel tanks, and engines, and functioning docking ports with integrated parachutes!

Please Note: This video is outdated and does not contain the full selection of parts the mod currently has. DESCRIPTION: Notantares Station Parts is a parts mod that will include an extensive array of both inflatable and rigid space station parts, designed to be used for orbital bases and spacecraft. The included parts will range from Bigelow-style inflatable habitats, centrifuges, and ISS-style crew modules. It is designed as an expansion to the Big Soyuz and NotantaresLV mini-packs. It currently includes a 1.25m large inflatable habitat (3.75m when inflated, can hold 8 crew, functions as a science lab!), a 1.25m inflatable centrifuge (9m when inflated, functions as crew storage only!), a 1.25m medium-sized inflatable habitat (3.75m when inflated, can hold 6 crew, functions as a science lab!), and a 1.25m small-sized inflatable habitat (3.75m when inflated, can hold 4 crew, functions as crew storage only!).

  19. Today is my dads birthday and we went out
  20. Vostok Continued When @Beale revamped his Tantares mod, he unfortunately abandoned the Vostok parts. Abandoned and homeless, I took them in, updated the textures, and gave them a home. This mod adds a set of parts designed to re-create the Vostok spacecraft and Blok-E upper stage in a stockalike style. Thanks to: @Beale for making the original parts, and giving me access to his source files and giving me tips. @CobaltWolf for helping me with the textures and getting the parts ingame. @Daelkyr for helping with the aerodynamics and parachute code. Plenty of other people for giving me feedback, encouragement, and help. This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 4.0 International License. first

  23. This is continuation of @hoojiwana RLA Stockalike mod, which is now being continued by yours truly. As such I deem no official ownership, just the maintenance thereof. What is RLA_Stockalike? "Parts to fill stock niches, including 0.625m LFO engines and tanks, a full suite of monopropellant engines ranging from 2.5m to sub-0.625m, brand new 0.625m SRBs, 0.625m high efficiency engines using LiquidFuel, Monopropellant or Xenon, a number of new probe cores with varied specialisations and shapes, more ways to produce electricity, a range of RCS blocks both large and small, and structural parts to glue it all together with." What is RLA Recontinued? This is an all-in-one package that keeps RLA Continued mod updated into the future, much like how it kept the original RLA Stockalike updated itself. Previous Version Thread: Other Things: Should @hoojiwana return at some point, much like @Deimos Rast before me, I will gladly step aside and hand over control to him to use as he sees fit. I am fully aware that this is his mod, not mine. License/Legal: CC-BY-SA-4.0 @hoojiwana as far as is known, has no knowledge of this continuation; as per license requirement, I cannot and do not claim that he has endorsed these changes. Credits: @hoojiwana is the original creator of RLA_Stockalike. @Deimos Rast is the former maintainer of RLA_Continued. @Carbonjvd is the current maintainer of RLA Recontinued. Installation Instruction: - Please uninstall all previous versions prior to updating RLA to the latest version. - Place RLA_Stockalike folder into GameData directory. - Has no dependencies (Module Manager is optional) Download: Spacedock: https://spacedock.info/mod/1509/RLA Recontinued CKAN (Soon..)

Do you not want to have to install millions of mods for another tech tree? Do you miss BTSM? Then this mod is for you! Experience the wonders of a balanced tech tree with Stock Historical Tech Tree!
