  1. Zee's "Probes Before Crew" CTT Overhaul KSP Version 1.6.1 - Jan 19 2019 Hello everyone! I would like to present a CTT overhaul I have been working on since the release of 1.6. I call it Probes Before Crew, and it does what it says on the box; it places remote technologies far ahead of crewed alternatives on the tech tree while also placing greater significance and reward on crewed actions and achievements as a result. The intent of this mod is to make your career campaigns balanced, intuitive, and challenging by ensuring all the mods that you are using interact with one another in a coherent way on the tech tree. If you would like to have a look through my notes and read a more verbose explanation of my changes and the reasoning behind a lot of my choices, I will place them in a spoiler below. = = = = = For now, the Highlights: In General, all tech categories were stretched out a bit to enjoy all the new leg-room the CTT gives us. Probe Cores come first, and now possess their own form of crew report, the 'Telemetry Report'. Cockpits don't show up until T4, and Command Modules must wait until T5. A purpose-built, completely optional Contract Pack by Zee that overhauls the economy of the game and aims to make it more challenging. Antenna, Electrical, Science, Utilities, Thermals, ISRU, etc; they have all been re-positioned [and in some cases mildly tweaked] with careful consideration of one another. Science Overhauled and Re-balanced; Experiments are less tedious, more spread out across the tech tree branches, and place higher significance/reward on experiments that REQUIRE a Kerbal be present. PLEASE NOTE: Science rewards have been reduced overall. I recommend you do not set the Science slider below 70%, and that's under the assumption you are at least using DMagic Orbital Science (If not, consider moving the slider higher). This chart is not an exhaustive list of all the parts I've moved, it just highlights the big players and gives you a general idea of their new relationship to each other. It will also serve as the guideline/reference point for future mod patches as I add them. = = = = = Supported Mods (so far) "Supported" Mod means I have gone through every part, science definition, and entry/VAB cost for that mod and placed everything in a way as to be consistent with all other supported mods. This means a unified, intuitive, and logical experience as you progress through the tech tree with all your favorite mods. This is a work in progress and there a ton of mods I want to support so the list will grow over time. As of right now, Probes Before Crew covers: Vanilla Parts. Making History Expansion. Pairs well with Strategia. Works out of the box with KAS and KIS. DMagic Orbital Science. = = = = = = Core Chart with DMagic added. Kerbal Operating System. = = = = = Core Chart with kOS added. Kerbalism = = = = = = = = = = = = = Core Chart with Kerbalism added. = = = (Kerbalism Users must read this first) Near Future. (All 7 Packs) = = = = = Core Chart with NF added.

TAC Life Support. = = = = = = = = = Core Chart with TACLS added. Universal Storage 2.= = = = = = = = Core Chart with US2 added. If you use mods not listed its completely fine, they just might unlock at odd times relative to the rest of PBC until I add support. If there are mods listed that you don't use, no worries! This mod ignores making changes to mods you don't have, and none of them are required. If there is a mod you would like to see supported by PBC, just let me know and I'll see what I can do. The next patch in line is Mk IV Spaceplane System. = = = = = Original Built-For-PBC Contract Pack If you choose to use my contract pack, quick facts you should know: All you need to do to "enable it" is install Contract Configurator by Nightingale. That's it! Another mod by Nightingale, Strategia pairs very well with this contract pack. Highly recommended. This contract pack is purpose built for this techtree, so I'm not releasing it as a separate mod and I offer no support if you try to use it without PBC. The vanilla tutorial and exploration contracts are disabled when running PBC Contracts. Mini-milestone rewards will provide smaller rewards. They were especially showering us with easy money in the early game, but not anymore! Any vessel you land on a given body that meets all pre-reqs will be a valid candidate vessel to complete the "Return Home" parameter; leaving you to do so at your own pace with any valid vessel you want. PLEASE NOTE: Just like the notice above about Science, I recommend you keep your funds slider at least at 80% if using PBC Contracts. The economy has been overhauled and made much more challenging. You will feel the difference between 100% > 90% > 80%. = = = = = Download / Installation 1. You must be using KSP Version 1.6+. KSP Versions prior to 1.6.0 are not compatible. 2. ModuleManager is a dependency that must be installed first. 3. CommunityTechTree is a dependency that must be installed first. 4. If you wish to enable my Contract Pack, Contract Configurator must be installed. This step is optional. 5. Download the latest version of PBC here. 6. If you are updating a previous install, completely delete the old 'ProbesBeforeCrew' folder from your GameData folder. 7. Remove the new 'ProbesBeforeCrew' folder from the .zip archive, and place it into your GameData folder.

  2. ETT is a pinwheel design that is grouped into branches of related engineering disciplines. Premise Do the Kerbals discover rocketry before winged flight? You decide. Both winged flight and rockets first options. ETT also has an "End Game" so you can play the campaign game with a built in goal. I love to hear new ideas and don't be afraid to let me know if I have a part or two out of place. Listed on CKAN or Download at SpaceDock - May break saved games. Patreon Link or even better, contribute to the tech tree by adding a simple config of a/your part pack! New GitHub Repository for Contributors: (Outdated. Will update soon.) Readme file has instructions. Scope A tech tree based on engineering/scientific principles... mostly, that is challenging to unlock yet fun to play through. Goals & Requirements 1. Branches of the tech tree based on engineering disciplines. 2. The Kerbals discover rocket powered flight before they figure out winged flight. (or vice-versa) 3. Unlocking the entire tech tree is not required but must involve flights to nearby planets. 4. Parts that generate science are spread throughout the disciplines and are not based on which branch you focus on (e.g. Flight, Liquid fueled, Solid, Exotic). 5. The player may unlock just the branches that they are interested in. 6. "End Game", so you can play the campaign game with a built in goal. Highly Recommended for FLIGHT FIRST option: Firespitter, SXT and/or KAX for propeller parts. Take Command to use the external command seat for barnstorming... I mean science. Highly Recommended for ROCKETS first: Interstellar KW Rocketry MRS SpaceY FASA Recommended for the tree overall: Kerbal Engineer or MechJeb for delta V calculations. DMagic Orbital Science to boost your science output. @Necro You can play this tree completely stock, but I believe it is the most fun with several part packs. The many nodes of the tree limits the amount of parts that show up in the editor which makes it easier to find the part you are looking for.

  3. SIMPLEX Living Seeing the coding among the stars... 0.10 Fifth release now live BETA at Spacedock - contains a Kerbalism profie and a move for Minmus. More to come SoonTM. Resources with Simplex Ores and EPL recipies now part of separate mod SIMPLEX Resources. Tech Tree and engine nerf part of separate mod SIMPLEX Techtree. This is a work in progress: Feedback and advice is sought. Licenses for each section will be based on the original licence of the changes. Pretty much all other cfgs are Unlicence. Simplex Kerbalism Profile LifeSupport that combines food and water into Consumables, with a waste product of OrganicSlurry. Breathable Air and non breathable BadAir replacing oxygen and CO2. A simplified system when 1 unit of Air or consumables equates to 1 day of usage per kerbal. Masses remain the same as vanilla Kerbalism (i.e. realisitic) although Air is heavier that O2. Air is used instead of Nitrogen to maintain atmospheric pressure. A buildup of BadAir will result in asphyxiation of kerbals, but can be scrubbed the same as vanilla Kerbalism (scrubbers no longer convert BadAir to Air). Rocket Surgeons as a tourist style kerbal that will be used in construction Kerbal Konstructs instances placement of additional stock launchpads at the KSC. ResearchBodies style laboratory contracts Kerbalism and Life Support changes: Kerbal Konstructs: Please let me know what you think. Peace.
  4. Hide Empty Tech Tree Nodes v1.1.0 (January 13, 2019) Who this mod is for: This mod is for people who use large modded tech trees, such as the awesome Community Tech Tree mod by Nertea, but don't have enough part mods installed to fill up all of the new tech tree nodes and hate the empty tech nodes. Additional features give you even more control over the tech tree. What it does: Main feature: Adds option to hide any empty tech tree nodes, which automatically connects the resultant "hanging" tech tree lines to unhidden nodes in a logical sense. Additional features: Adds option to hide unresearched nodes, similar to Fog of Tech. Disabled by default. Adds option to change all node unlock requirements to "Any" or "All". Adds option to manually set which nodes are hidden (when enabled, this uses "hideEmpty" from RDNode modules. These can be edited with ModuleManager). *new Adds option to transfer science points from hidden nodes to their children/descendants. *new Adds option to remove empty space caused my missing rows/columns of empty nodes. Adds options to change the zoom settings, so you can fit your large, modded tech tree onto your screen all at once. Default minimum zoom is changed from 60% to 35%. Feel free to further customize your tech tree using using Module Manager to suit your play style, by adding nodes, changing default node positions, etc. (with the appropriate edits!). This mod will take care of everything else. Examples (click either picture to enter album): Notes on mod behavior: Some Recommended Tech Trees: The Community Tech Tree or any number or awesome tech trees, such as Historical Progression Tech Tree *Engineering Tech Tree (<- see notes below) *Notes on ETT support: Download: SpaceDock Source (GitHub) Download instructions: Download the mod folder from the SpaceDock link and place the GameData folder in your KSP directory. Changelog: Bug reports: Please report if: 1) A tech line intersects/crosses a tech node 2) A tech node requires more than three nodes to unlock ("all" or "any") 3) You see something weird with the new zoom options or Fog of Tech-like options 4) Problems with new "active" mod behavior Post Feature Complete Future Features: 1) Might try to figure out how make make tech lines curve at places other than midway between two tech nodes License
  5. Version 3.0 is released on Spacedock! How to install: I've been playing with UnmannedBeforeManned for a long time. In that time, I've made UBM configs for a bunch of mods. In the past, I've sent them to Yemo and had them integrated into the main UBM mod, but Yemo hasn't been answering my PMs. Therefore, I've decided to release what I have as an add-on for UBM. As UBM is released under an ARR license, I have not modified or redistributed anything from UBM, and you will need it to use these configs. Configs included: Dependencies: Unmanned Before Manned, by Yemo - required Community Tech Tree, by Nertea - recommended ModuleManager, by sarbian. - required Hide Empty Tech Tree Nodes, by ev0. - recommended Community Tech Tree Naval Branch, by Pdelta41 - Required for Aircraft Carrier Accessories, MaritimePack, and SM_Marine License: CC BY-NC-SA 3.0 This mod contains models and textures by Porkjet and SQUAD, released under the CC-BY-NC 3.0 License.

  6. More balanced parts, a more intuitive tech and contract progression, some useful probe/greenhouse/etc. parts and configs for RemoteTech and CustomBarnKit! Modding is a lot of work, if you are interested in the continued maintenance and development of the SETI mods, please consider supporting them via patreon. By accepting contributions (funds and code) via patreon and forum, I consider it to by my responsibility to not let the mod die because of my desinterest and thus to orderly hand it over before that happens. I also consider it to be my responsibility to not let the mod and thus the contributions be the object of trolls, who misuse permissive licensing to wreck the mod and it's intent of providing a balance and ground work other mods may rely upon, as is so often the case in other modding communities. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- SETI MetaModPack (only available via CKAN) If you are looking for a more balanced, comfortable and more challenging gameplay without having to manually crawl through a hundred mods every time, this might be it. Simply install CKAN, only click on the "SETI-MetaModPack", then "ApplyChanges", leave the recommendations selected and select those suggestions you like as well. Done. Visual Mods are not included, since they tend to take some time to adjust to new ksp versions and even more time to work with ckan. Only RealPlume and Planetshine (not yet working with ksp 1.3) are in the pack. For more detailed information and recommendations for career settings, please go to the thread linked below called "SETI-UbM Career Challenge (setup takes 5-10min)". Mod Recommendations and Suggestions of the MetaModPack (Link to Textfile on Github) RCS Build Aid and AnomalySurvey contract pack are not officially available for ksp 1.3 and thus not installed via ckan recommendations. There is an unofficial RCS Build Aid for manual install available here: And Anomaly Survey contract pack works, except for the jool part, manually install an old version at your own discretion: ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Main SETI Balancing mods: ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Download: SETI Rebalance v1.3.0.2 (for KSP 1.3.x, use CKAN for a clean install) Rebalancing masses, funds, science (simple ones transmittable for 100%), reaction wheels and much more, for a much more coherent gameplay experience. If you delete/do not install the SETIrebalanceReactionWheels folder which comes with the download, you can opt-out from the reaction wheel rebalance/nerf. For specifically supported mods, consult the github link below. Strongly recommended: A tech tree which makes sense, probably every tech tree which is not stock... ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Download: SETI RebalanceMaterialsGoo v1.3.0.0 (Addon for SETIrebalance, use CKAN for a clean install) This is the SETI Rebalance MaterialsBay and MysteryGoo MM patch, so that those 2 experiments can not be collected anymore, which makes them much more balanced in terms of mass/science payout. Best used with SETIrebalance. Strongly recommended: SETI Rebalance above ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- SETI tech tree mods: ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Download: Unmanned before Manned v1.3.0.2 (for KSP 1.3.x, use CKAN for a clean install) Adjusts part placement for Stock- and CommunityTechTree. CTT is recommended with UbM. Start with simple SRB rockets, have early access to rovers and planes and the Mk1 pod only at a 45 science node. General compatibility with all mods which work with stock, for specifically supported mods, consult the github link below. Strongly recommended: CommunityTechTree, TakeCommandContinued (kerbals can enter command seats from the VAB/SPH) and SETI Rebalance above (stock part balance is worse than the stock tech tree) ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Download: UbM Challenge v1.3.0.0 (Addon for Unmanned Before Manned, use CKAN for a clean install) No reaction wheels until 90 science (use fins, control surfaces, gimbal and RCS instead). Fuel lines later as well. Required Mods: Unmanned before Manned above ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- SETI career mods: ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Download: SETI Contracts v1.3.0.0 (for KSP 1.2.x, use CKAN for a clean install) This is the independent contract campaign. Using a probes first tech tree is recommended, like the ones above. Dependencies/Recommendations/Suggestions (Link to Textfile on Github) ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Download: SETI CareerChallenge v1.3.0.0 (Recommended for career mode, use CKAN for a clean install) This small mod simply reduces science experiment rewards by 70% to balance out the contract science rewards compared to science mode. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- SETI part mods: ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Download: SETI ProbeParts v1.3.0.2 (for KSP 1.3.x, use CKAN for a clean install) Provides new stock parts (using stock models) for the 0.625m probe diameter. Includes mini H2/O2 fuel cell, RCS, solar panels, mini shielded docking port, new engine configs and inline probe cores. Strongly recommended: SETI Rebalance above and a tech tree which makes sense, probably every tech tree which is not stock... ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Download: Porkjets PartOverhauls SETIconfig v0.9.2.0 (for KSP 1.3.x, use CKAN for a clean install) Configures and redistributes Porkjets PartOverhauls (CC-BY-NC-3.0), so that it fits into stock and VenStockRevamp without replacing parts. Some parts are now 1.875m sized, two engines augment the 0.625m collection, Boattail versions stay 1.25m sized. Strongly recommended: SETI Rebalance above and a tech tree which makes sense, probably every tech tree which is not stock... ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Download: SETI Greenhouse v1.2.2.0 (for KSP 1.2.x, works just fine with KSP 1.3.0 use CKAN for a clean install)) A diagram of the cycle for TAC Life Support can be found near the end of this post. With it you essentially need only 10% of the water and 20% of the food which is normally used by a kerbal. Required Mods: none ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- SETI config mods: ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Download: SETI RemoteTechConfig v1.3.0.0 (Addon for RemoteTech 1.8.2+, use CKAN for a clean install) This is a SETI config for RemoteTech, adding ground stations, changing the KSC range to cover the whole kerbol system (when not obstructed). Signal delay is set to false by default (can be changed in game) and some colors are tweaked. Required Mods: Remote Tech ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Download: SETI ProbeControlEnabler v1.3.0.0 (Addon for RemoteTech 1.8.3+, use CKAN for a clean install) This is a SETI config for RemoteTech, allowing probe control (local control) without connection. Thus a connection is only required for science transmission. Unfortunately this may remove the built-in omni antenna from probes (but not from manned command pods). Required Mods: Remote Tech ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Download: SETI CustomBarnKitConfig v0.9.1.0 !EXPERIMENTAL! (Addon for CustomBarnKit, use CKAN for a clean install) This is a SETI config for CustomBarnKit, Action Groups are available from the start, Kerbal hiring costs are fixed at 60k, etc. More facility levels are added, the restrictions and costs for upgrades are tweaked to provide a more sensible upgrade progression.

  7. 1. It would be nice to have an option to start the game in a way where the missions and tech tree is reworked in a way that you start off with probes before putting Kerbals into rockets. I know there are mods and everything but would be nice to see in stock game as a more "realistic" start. And again i know there are mods out there for these things but they are getting outdated and some are being left behind. Making the plumes act as they do in real life or like in the mod RealPlumes where the gasses expand the higher you get into the atmosphere making it look more realistic and pleasing/rewarding as you get higher and higher into space. A visual indicator that you are getting higher and higher into the atmosphere.
  8. When you first start a new career game in KSP, do you find yourself frustrated that you have to launch several rockets before you have one that's good enough to get into orbit. Do you dread the idea of having to grind through a bunch of boring survey or tourist contracts just to slowly progress to the point in the game in which you can consider going to the Mun or Mimnus? Do you think to yourself as you're testing an SRB on an escape trajectory out of Kerbin, "there has to be a better way"? The early part of a Career playthrough can be frustrating and grindy. It's the part of the game I like to refer to as the "Potato Phase". I don't know why I decided to call it that. I just heard someone else call it that once, and it stuck. Of course, you could bypass this altogether by just awarding yourself a bunch of Science and Funds in the difficulty settings when you first start a new game, but most people would, and rightly so, just consider that to be cheating. But there's good news: there is a better way. You can get through the Potato Phase in just six missions, if you play the right way. This tutorial will teach you how to complete the first five tiers of the tech tree quickly, and without having to grind or game the system in any way. Let's get started. For this tutorial, I am playing in the stock game set at the Normal difficulty level. On higher difficulties, there is a lower percentage in Science rewards and facility upgrades are much more expensive. You can still use this strategy, but you will have to work as many contracts as you can between these missions to save up funds for upgrades. 1 - First Mission First, you need to get some science to start unlocking the basics. Go to Mission Control and grab the following contracts: Gather scientific data from Kerbin Launch our first vessel Then, build this and click that Launch button like a boss. (In my games, this is the one and only time I EVER use an SRB.) Note: For best results, assign Bob to this mission. On the laundpad... Get a Crew Report Get an EVA Report Observe two of the Mystery Goos While you're outside of the craft, right-click on the capsule, select "Take Data" and then "Store Experiments". This will store the Crew Report you just took in the capsule, instead of on Bob's person. This will allow you to take additional Crew Reports in other biomes. Launch vessel. During ascent, observe two more Mystery Goos and another Crew Report After splashdown, do the remaining two Mystery Goos and get another EVA report and Crew Report (remember to store the previous Crew Report you took during ascent by right-clicking on the capsule, and selecting "Take Data" and then "Store Experiments"). Also, climb onto the top of the capsule and jump in the air, and while you're in the air, get an EVA report "flying over Kerbin's water". You'll want to right-click Bob before you jump, of course, so that you have time to click the EVE Report button during the fraction of a second he is in the air. This should net about 34 Science, plus 8 more Science for contract completion and various milestones, for a total of 42. Grab the following contracts: Escape the atmosphere Orbit Kerbin In R&D, research the following tech: Basic Rocketry General Rocketry Engineering 101 2 - First Orbit Build this It includes 11 FL-T200 tanks, a Swivel engine, a decoupler, a parachute, four basic fins, four Mystery Goos, and six 2HOT thermometers. Take the monopropellant out of the capsule to increase the dV just a little bit more. Something to keep in mind about this craft is that you have barely enough dV to make it into orbit, so you need to be very efficient in your ascent. This launch is the most difficult part of the entire tutorial. It's not uncommon for it to require a few attempts before doing it successfully. I recommend the following ascent profile: At 1000m, turn 5 degrees. Stay with the prograde marker and try to be at 45 degrees by the time you reach 10000m. After you reach 16000m, lower the throttle to 1/3. Cut the engines the second your Apoapsis reaches 72km. Wait until you're less than 20 seconds from apoapsis to circularize, taking your time and staying on the prograde marker. You need be as efficient as possible because you have no fuel to spare. If the apoapsis gets away from you, stop and coast until you reach it again before continuing your burn. Stop the moment your Pe goes above 70km. You'll probably need at least 3 units of fuel set aside to deorbit. During ascent, after you reach 18km, observe two Mystery Goos and log temperature. Once officially in orbit, do a Crew Report, observe two more Mystery Goos and get two temperature readings. To deorbit, set your Pe to 50k, for a shallow reentry. You don't want your science instruments to burn up. After you've lowered your Pe, feel free to decouple the launch stage. Or you can keep it on until after reentry to use as a heat shield. Just make sure you get rid of it while you still have plenty of altitude to open your chute. During reentry, get two temperature readings. After the parachute opens, before landing, get a temperature reading. Should get about 59 Science, plus another 30 in completion bonuses. In R&D, research the following tech: Survivability Advanced Rocketry Stability Upgrade... Mission Control to Level 2 Astronaut Complex to Level 2 Launchpad to Level 2 Grab seven contracts at Mission Control to get some advance funds. Make sure Explore Kerbin is one of them. Choose the ones with the largest advance amounts. You don't have to complete them. You can ditch them later on in the game when you can afford the penalties. 3 - EVAs in LKO Next, send a rocket into a polar orbit with Bob and pick up EVA reports from as many different biomes as you can. This ship will do the trick. Be sure to include two Mystery Goos, two Thermometers, and two PresMats. Without a pilot, you have no SAS, so flying straight will be a challenge. Once in orbit, the workflow will be: Get EVA report. Store experiment in capsule. Get another EVA report when in a new biome. Repeat. You want to get an EVA report in space above the following biomes: Water Shores Grasslands Highlands Mountains Deserts Tundra Ice Caps Northern Ice Shelf Southern Ice Shelf Badlands Something that will make this mission a hundred times less tedious is a mod called [X] Science. It will not only let you know which biome you are currently in, but it will let you know all of the experiments you can perform at any given time, and even provide you with a button to perform them easily. And get a crew report, an EVA report, and two readings from high orbit (above 250 km) from each of your science instruments as well. After landing/splash down, get an EVA report. You can easily get about 155 Science from this mission, plus another 7 in completion bonuses. Once you have about 100 Science, go back to R&D and get the following: Basic Science Aviation Flight Control 4 - Tour the KSC Build this rover to get all the Science from the KSC (I got about 265 Science). You need a scientist on this mission. Get Science from the following biomes: Runway KSC Administration Astronaut Complex R&D Complex VAB SPH Tracking Station Mission Control Crawlerway Launch Pad Shores In each biome, do the following: Crew Report Log Temperature Log Pressure Observe two Mystery Goos Observe two Science Jr's EVA Report Take the data out of your science instruments Restore the Mystery Goos and Science Jr's Store your data in the Experiment Storage Unit Store your remaining data in the cockpit take data from cockpit and store it again (this allows you to store the crew report) Get back in the rover and move on to the next biome 5 - First Probe to the Mun Once you have about 300 Science, go back to R&D and get the following: General Construction Fuel Systems Electrics Upgrade the Tracking Station to Level 2 Build the following ship. All you need to do is get into the Mun's sphere of influence, get as much Science as you can, and get back to Kerbin. Keep the experiment from the Materials Bay and one of each of the other instruments. For your second 2Hot, PresMat, and Mystery Goo, transmit the data. When returning, get a Kerbin Pe of about 60km. That Materials Bay is very delicate and can easily overheat during reentry, so circularize and come in as shallow as you possibly can. And make sure you stay dead on that retrograde marker until the heating dies down. You should get about 188 Science for the experiments you brought back, plus another 32 from the data you transmitted. You'll also get about 9 in completion bonuses. It's not much, but it should be enough to unlock another two tech nodes. Go back to R&D and get the following: Miniaturization Heavy Rocketry Upgrade the VAB to Level 2 6 - First Kerbals to the Mun For the first manned Mun mission, build this You need a pilot and a scientist for this mission. You want to try for a polar orbit, so you can pass over all the biomes. In each biome, do the following: Observe the materials bay Bob goes EVA Collect data from materials bay Close doors and restore materials bay Store experiments in his pod Do an EVA report Observe the materials bay Collect data from materials bay Close doors and restore materials bay Right click Jeb's pod, and store experiments Bob gets back in Get all available science from LKO, if there's any left to get. Get all available science from High Orbit on the way to the Mun. Get all available science from Mun high orbit as you approach. Get EVA reports above all of the Mun's biomes. To return to Kerbin, make your Pe about 50km If you have the dV, circularize after aerobraking at just above 70km To land near KSC, place your Pe at 19km just above the large peninsula east of KSC You should get about 550 Science from this mission, depending on how many biomes you can get an EVA report of. At this point, you should have enough Science to close out tier 5 of the tech tree. In order to go any further in the tech tree, you will need to upgrade the R & D Complex, which costs about $450,000. Chances are that you currently only have roughly $150,000. Sadly, you will have to work some contracts to scrounge up some cash to make this needed upgrade. My first recommendation is to take any rescue contracts that are offered. It will hone your rendezvous skills, and not only will you not have to pay large sums of funds to hire additional Kerbals, you'll get paid for it. After a few of these missions, it will start to feel a bit repetitive, but adding roughly six to eight Kerbals to your program is going to be pretty helpful in the long run. My second recommendation is to take any contracts that ask you to do the things you were going to do anyway: space stations, satellites (if you're into that kind of thing), etc. Stay away from anything involving parts testing or high altitude surveys. They're garbage and a waste of your time. At this point, you have what you need to land on the Mun and Mimnus, and the Science you grab from fully exploring all of their biomes will easily net you enough Science to unlock everything up to and including Tier 7 of the tech tree. You will then have everything you need to start exploring other planets in style. KSP is fun again. Huzzah! Stay tuned for an upcoming tutorial on how to close out the rest of the entire stock tech tree in just six two more missions... I got the idea for this approach by watching Mark Thrimm's SSTO Space Program series on Youtube. I highly reccommend you check it out, because it's awesome. Feel free to let me know in the comments if I got anything incorrect, or how this approach can be improved. Example ships for all of the missions in this tutorial can be found here. 1 - The Angry Grasshopper.craft 2 - Orbiter One.craft 3 - Orbiter Two.craft 4 - KSC Research Rover.craft 5 - Mun Probe.craft 6 - Munraker One.craft
  9. So I've undertaken a little project with ETT : Converting the layout to a conventional left-to-right arrangement. Removing Yonge Tech Tree as a dependency. Making ETT 100% compatible with Stock and CTT. Removing nodes duplicated between CTT and ETT. Adding more starting nodes to better facilitate an aircraft first or rocket first career path. Adding nodes to provide a longer R&D game (Tree current has 229 nodes and requires over 178,000 science to unlock) Moving part configs to separate patch files to make it easier to edit part locations and add mod support Re-aligning research nodes into logical groups based on engineering discipline Creating new node names and descriptions (my creativity on descriptions has run out after the first dozen or so, so look for this to be crowd sourced). I rather liked the spiral tree idea, so long-term development will include a config for each layout type.

  10. OpenTree is a tech tree mod featuring: Increased player freedom with more options available from the start - choose from manned/unmanned rovers, manned rockets, probes, planes and drones. Entry level tech offers the bare minimum to provide a fun and interesting challenge. Tech development is based on finer levels of control and ease of use - not just increasing power. The parts contained in each tech either work well together or are related in function. No more illogical groupings. Specifics Receive 5 starting science points to choose between manned or unmanned tech. Launch your first plane/drone (glider) with solid fuel boosters, your first rocket/probe with mono-propellant... or go for a drive around KSC with a rover. Earlier access to docking ports, RCS, cargo bays, ISRU and turbojet engines. Points of entry to Mk2, Mk3, 2.5m and 3.75m parts from both rocketry and aviation lines. Feel free to lower the science rewards rate for a greater challenge - OpenTree was balance tested down to 30% science rewards.

  11. Firstly, apologies if this already exists, and thanks for pointing me in the right direction. Is there a Mod that, or is someone willing to make or assist me make, will allow me to restrict the tech level available to me in Sandbox, I would like to be able to deactivate Tech Tree nodes and/Or Tech Tree levels. I want to use a Sandbox save as a testing and development 'simulation' for my careers, but find trying to remember which parts I can use a pain.
  12. Historical Progression Tech Tree This tech tree is designed to take you through the history of the human space program. I always felt like the stock tech tree was lacking and did not like the placement of the parts. There are other tech trees that utilize the stock tech tree and move parts around and that is what inspired me to create a new tech tree like this. The tree will start you with Unmanned parts before you progress to learning how to send Kerbals into Space safely. What I did with this tree is create a linear approach to Research. The entire tree is broken down into space associated disciplines so you are not required to research new fuel tanks before you get bigger and better engines. This allows the player to drive their research focus. If you as the player wants to get the next tier of electronics to support your craft, you have that option. TECH TREE BRANCHES ROCKETRY Rocket Engine Parts JET ENGINES Jet Engine Parts FUEL TANKS Rocket Fuel Tanks Liquid Fuel Tanks Advanced Fuel Tanks AERODYNAMICS Fairings Advanced Wings Nose Cones Intakes ENGINEERING Adapters Decouplers Landing Gear Service Bays Fuel Ducts Docking Ports Rover Wheels FLIGHT CONTROL Probe Cores RCS MonoProp Tanks Winglets Reaction Wheels CREW SUPPORT Command Pods Cockpits Parachutes Heat Shields Life Support SCIENCE All Science Parts ELECTRONICS & COMMUNICATIONS Power Generation Power Storage Antennas Heat Control TECH TREE TIERS The tiers are organized from left to right and are listed in numerical order. These are the tiers and the corresponding years that I have used for the placement of the parts. TIER 1: 1956 and Earlier This only includes the starting node with many more parts moved to the starting node than in Stock. There are also a node for Wings and Structural Pieces to remove them from the other nodes. TIER 2: 1957 - 1958 This was the era when we moved from Sounding Rockets to ICBM's and finally to our first satellites like Sputnik and Explorer 1. TIER 3: 1959 During this time, humans successfully flew by the Moon with the Luna program as well as developed the first techniques of returning capsules from space. TIER 4: 1960 - 1963 These years are when Manned spaceflight first happened. Yuri Gregarin became the first person in space and in orbit, with Vostok 1 and the US launched astronauts in the Mercury Program. The first unmanned missions to another planet took place with flybys of Venus. TIER 5: 1964 - 1966 This tier was when we progressed from single manned flights to multiple people in the same spacecraft. The duration of the flights in space increase from short times to up to two weeks. The techniques used to rendezvous and dock ships together were devloped during these years as well as the first landing on the Moon with Luna 9. TIER 6: 1967 - 1971 We landed men on the Moon! This was the ultimate goal of both the US and USSR and the technology developed for huge rockets to launch men to the Moon as well as other unmanned spacecraft to Mars and Venus. TIER 7: 1972 - 1979 This was the time when humans learned how to live in space. The Soviets launched their Salyut space station program and the United States did the same with Skylab. The first missions to the outer planets also took place with Pioneer 10, Pioneer 11, Voyager 1 and Voyager 2. Viking 1 also became the first successful landing on Mars. TIER 8: 1980 - 1993 The Space Shuttle Era where we concentrated on living in Low Earth Orbit. The Soviets launched the Mir space station which was the first modular space station. TIER 9: 1994 - 2005 Long-term space habitation and rovers on Mars was the major focus during this period. Pathfinder became the first rover on another planet, humans lived for more than a year on Mir, and the construction of the International Space Station began. TIER 10: 2006 - 2020 Back to the Moon or on to Mars? New technologies are being developed by many companies to provide the tools needed for humans to get back to the Moon and to also look to Mars as well. TIER 11: 2020 - 2050 Near future technologies. These are experimental things that are in development right now that may one day help us reach farther than we ever have before. TIER 12: 2050 and beyond These technologies have not been developed yet, or they are just on the drawing board. Things like Warp Drives and FTL travel and Nuclear Fusion will take us to the stars.

  13. hi all, Here is the challenge I propose : Start a new stock career mode (medium difficulty or higher) and complete the technology tree the fastest possible. Your score is the game-time when tech tree is completed. I talk about game-time and not about the real time you spent in the game. This may limit the use of time warp and favor multiple concomitant flights. most of mods are vailable, except those modifying physics and science gain What do you think ?
  14. Hey, i am wondering how to unlock all of the tech tree via mission builder as mechjeb is useless without some of the tech tree filled in. Using ".cfg" file in gamedata to enable it does not work. i can change the "persistant.cfg" in saves to open tech tree but the "persistant.mission.cfg" will not enable tech tree from the start. super annoying as mechjeb literally will not work. not the best because some people are really gonna struggle with some missions and i want my missions to be more about understanding than struggling. i hope the developers didnt do this on purpose and merely just a feature they will implement (soon). i.e unlock tech tree via a tab in mission builder so on launching the mission mechjeb will be good to go... seems simple.

    [1.3.1]Better Early Tree

    Hi! This is a small mod that I started mading by myself, but I thinkt that it could be nice to share it. I wanted a correction of the Stock Tech Tree that let me start with probes and then advance to crewed missions. The logic choice was the SETI UnmanedBeforeManned mod, but I don't like the way it changes the game. It just gives you a lot of usseless pieces at the begining, and is not very balanced in the science you need to unlock them. No, I wanted more stock-a-like experience, with a nice looking tree, and a balanced amount of unlocks for each node. So, instead of wait or ask anyone, I decided to make the mod by myself. Right now the mod is in "Beta", it may not be as balanced as I think it is, and I jet need to write a propper description with all the changes that I made, and also take some captures. You can download the beta here, in my Github. Special Thanks @Nertea, as I used (and modify) two icons from the Community Tech Tree for this mod.

  16. Looking at career streams/youtube videos, there are a lot of people skipping the early tech tree by using the KSC science exploit. I m wondering how many do this and what are the reasons to do so?

    Making a tech tree

    I know this question has been asked multiple times, but I have yet to find a good tutorial. How do you make a tech tree and fill it with stock parts? If you could point me in the right direction that would be greatly appreciated.
  18. [WIP] Stock Historical Tech Tree Firstly, I don't expect this to be released for a while, but I will use this page to keep you updated! Have you ever raged at Squad's terrible tech tree? 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! Start with basic parts like the Stayputnik and the Flea and go to conquer the Heavens! Also, because of strict Krademark laws, we have to develop our own aircraft parts.
  19. [WIP] Stock Historical Tech Tree Firstly, I don't expect this to be released for a while, but I will use this page to keep you updated! Have you ever raged at Squad's terrible tech tree?

Start with basic parts like the Stayputnik and the Flea and go to conquer the Heavens! Also, because of strict Krademark laws, we have to develop our own aircraft parts. As of now, the tech tree structure will be that of CTT, but that will change in the future.
  20. Well, basically this is the question. After complete the tech tree, you still play in the save or you just stop? And why?
  21. I work in aircraft maintenance, and it always fascinates me, how engineers have solved problems of detecting how fast, how high or in which direction an aircraft is moving. In KSP even debris knows exatly it's speed, altitude and a lot more of it's trajectory parameters. But in rocket science, knowing where your craft is going is one of the big challenges. It would add a nice extra insight into rocket building, if a player needs to "invent" speed-o-meters, altimeters or say compasses. This could be implemented in certain probe cores have different sofisticated flight data aquisition or radar tracking can be unlocked by upgrading the tracking station, etc. I don't even know if this is an idea, that would add playability to KSP or if anybody else likes it. Or is there even a mod that already supports my idea, I didn't find anything like it. Thanks, for your consideration. Richy
  22. Hi, is it possible to activate the "entry cost" function in in retrospect? I was not able to find such an option...
  23. T.A.R.D.I.S is meant to be a tech tree to make the stock tech tree have common sense. Exploration: Planetary SOI > Inner Solar System > Outer Solar System Construction: No Construction > Space Station > Base Habitation: Short Term > Long Term > Permanent Propulsion: Solid and Liquid Fuel > Ion > Nuclear Power: Solar > Fuel Cell > Nuclear Aircraft: Lower Atmosphere > Upper Atmosphere > SSTO @TheRagingIrishman this is it mate The aim of this mod is to have sensible, common sense advancement of the tech tree, designed in a way that gets you out exploring the entire solar system before you finish the tech tree. The tech tree will be separated into 3 tiers. Tier 1, designed to enable exploration of the planetary soi, tier 2 designed for exploration of the inner solar system and tier 3 for exploration of the outer solar system. A lot of work has to be done, it's gonna be a while before it's ready as I've got a lot going on right now
  24. So I have a lot of parts which are "nonRP0" and have the wrong tech tree position. This is annoying and I would like to change that. Do you know if / how this is possible?
  25. So, I come here again seeking answers to what I would assume is a simple question. I am streaming a heavily Modded series, I do posses the means to add them to the Extended CTT, but my question is. Does Procedural Dynamics or B9 Procedural Wings exists in the standard Tech Tree in Career. I would assume not since I have not seen them, but I can be blind at times. If they are added to a Vanilla Tech Node, or a CTT node do they cost money based on size of the wing? Similar to how TweakScale has a price point that is adjusted based on scale? I do understand how to add the wings to the CTT but not sure about the Vanilla if they even could be, next and final question. If they do not have a scaling price metric based on shape and size of wing. Any idea how to put one in to make it not feel 'cheaty' yet fair? Thanks to any insight or answers from any and all that can give me a hand. Necro
