Recommended Posts

:confused: DESCRIPTION:

This mod adds parts made of rusty metal.

The goal of this mod is to let you build rockets/spaceplanes that have completely different look than stock parts, and most of the other mods. If you like aestetics of Firefly, Red Dwarf, Fallout, Mad Max, you might like this mod.

Most of the parts have stats comparable to similar stock parts. Some are maybe slightly OP.

So far, there are more than 100 parts from all categories.

Mod dependencies: none!

Looks... rusty...

I'm surprised those rockets didn't simply blow up on the launchpad... but then that's a possible outcome even with stock parts so... yeah... awesome stuff.

Oddly enough I'm more inspired to send something like this to Duna rather than some pretty white NASA masterpiece.

This is GREAT! The rocket flew perfectly, The 'chutes are awesome and the fuel tanks and rocket motors are just right... I have my fingers crossed for some rusty old solar panels and RCS tanks.

Wow. I'm thinking, Red Dwarf.

I would love to see additional textures for procedural parts...

This is work in progress, hopefully i'll finish it by the end of the week.

Some more features in the next update: custom engine effects, and new nuclear engine 'Atom Ant':

oooh... Hope to see the update soon on my launchpad. My new carreer il all made with your stuff, and it will go on with those new parts. If it could give someone some inspiration, i've called it "Kerbalistan", i think it fits well with those parts. If i can give you an advice, make a flag. A rusty flag. ;-)

Thanx one more time !

Very nice! I would like to see the textures be switchable between "not rusty," "somewhat rusty," and "very rusty" (current) so we can see what these were like when new or less rusty.

That would be very cool, but that would require a plugin, and i have almost zero knowledge in programming.

The firespitter plugin does texture switching, and I believe it has documentation to learn how to use it.

Thanks for the suggestion, i did make some flags and logos. But i will not use names like Kerbalistan, United States of Kerbal, Republic of Kerbin etc. because I like to think of Kerbals as free creatures, without states, religions, ideologies, living united on their planet with only one mission: to explore the universe! :)

Thank's for the tip, I checked it out, seems pretty straightforward, i'll probably try it, after I finish making all planned parts.

I've been having having a lot of fun with this mod. I was even thinking of doing a career with this. Can't wait for the next update. Here is an album of some test craft.

I'm very glad that you are having fun with my mod. Update is finished, actually it was finished 3-4 times, but every time I finish it, I get idea for a cool new part... :)

I guess I should upload it as it is now, just have to add one more part...
