Chaka the Monkey would like to extend a special thank you to these developers. They worked very hard to make these parts and we have organized them for Monkey Exploration because they are excellent.

Also, Chaka wishes to thank our awesome beta test team: @Space Kadet , @OV-102, @Jarlgnarök, @davidewei , and of course @MeCripp for putting in many hours of science which made the quality of this release possible. 





Special thanks to @rsparkyc for updating Procedural Fairings!

Chaka is going on an important mission






Huh... you should get a geocaching travel bug tag for him... There is even a geocache on the ISS.

Here is what a Travel Bug is:

And heres the info page for the ISS geocache, placed by Richard Garriott 10 years ago:

Astronaut Richard Mastracchio (AstroRM) is the only official finder to *physically* log the geocache to date. (which is the way its supposed to be done) :P

What is the IVA in the Orion supposed to look like?  I have rpm and mechjeb installed, so there are three small mfds on a little console, but I've seen ASETS Orion iva and it's much more... Full.  Did I install wrong perhaps, I thought that's what came with the mod, lol.  I saw that this was discussed before, but like four years ago, and I know rpm is becoming depricated, so idk.

Thanks though, this mod otherwise is beautifully brilliant.
