Kerbal Commonwealth Space Agency - A modded career play through with added artwork

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, and welcome to the Kerbal Commonwealth Space Agency. The Kerbal Commonwealth is a global union of the nations of Kerbin, formed for the purpose of fostering cooperation between nations and undertaking big projects, such as the exploration of space, on behalf of all Kerbal-kind.

In this series I will be playing through a custom tech tree I have created myself (prior to 1.0, I was using the Tech Manager mod for this). I am also playing with FAR, DRE, Dang-It and TAC-LS for additional challenge. Below, you will see that I have many parts mods listed, but almost all of these are partial installs. In some cases, I'm only using a single part that I wanted from a particular mod. Hopefully, despite all the mods, the game will still have a stock-ish feel.

Here is the current roster for our space program:

And here is the first episode, where we survey the region around the KSC using the aircraft shown below.

Her appearance is partially inspired by the TF2 administrator, yes. Her name was originally going to be Valentina before the official Valentina was revealed, so her name is instead a tribute to Henrietta Swan Leavitt

I suppose he does a bit. Completely unintentional though. Same clothes as in-game and the hairstyle is a stylized version of a young Wernher von Braun's hair.
