Now hosted by SpaceDock, formerly found exclusively on KerbalStuff: By far the best KSP mod hosting site up until its sudden demise. Thank you SirCmpwn for all the hard work and dedication you put into the site, it will be missed by all. It is a shame how many truly deserved thank you's go unsaid.

Feedback and suggestions welcome!
Post any bug reports or other topics relating to this mod here.

I apologize for the massive break in development, life got in the way and I lost interest in ksp when I least expected to.

I would like to continue this project, and I do still play ksp from time to time, so don't abandon hope yet ;).

The Kerbal Stuff link you supplied leads to an error page that says "Unauthorized The sever could not verify that you authorized to access the URL requested." Could just be a server hiccup, but you might want to check it out.

And I can't find it in CKAN. Yes, I refreshed the list.

Looking forward to downloading these. They look fantastic![h=1][/h]

Thank you for the heads up! Seems I never actually published the mod last night. Should be fixed now though. Please let me know if this works with CKAN I don't use it so I haven't tested it at all.

Hi,

Love the mods, great addition!

One question is it possible to enter a tube from inside e.g.: I hook it up to a part where the exit hatch is, and go on an EVE? I tried it but after I exit the Kerbal glitches out of the tube...

This is an awesome mod.  Just worked our what the iris was.  Too cool!  Can I suggest a exit hatch/airlock  similar to KPBS with an internal and windows to see the kerbal waiting inside to exit? Possibly using the JSI transparent windows...

Peace.

With the death of KerbalStuff, could we get an alternate source? At least until its replacement SpaceDock has stabilized.

Fantastic concept. I was looking forward to using these on my space stations but I guess our kerbonauts still can't access the interior without leaving a gaping hole somewhere for them to float through.

Any news on doors, airlocks etc? I can't wait!

Ah, I take back what I said. Having fitted the tubes over the doors I now have usable spaces accessible to floating Kerbonauts. What fun!

I have started working on an airlock but ran into a few snags getting it to function[it won't even show up in-game], I also don't like the look I went with and am going to have to remodel it before release. And sorry but this mod is currently on hold until classes end and I have some free time to work on it.

I just tried it in 1.1, the parts work just fine of course, it's just the first person camera that doesn't currently work. So if you don't mind not having a first person camera for awhile but still want the parts go ahead and download it.

I realized shortly after posting that there would be no logical reason for it to not work, so I downloaded it. Still awesome, and I realized that the larger viewselage and the docking iris allowed me to make hangars for 1.25m ships. Then I decided to make 1.25m and 3.75m versions by making rescaled copies of the cfg. Let's hope they work.

Let me know how the 1.25m docking iris goes, I feel like it would be too small for a kerbal to walk through, perhaps they could EVA up through it head first though. I was planning to make a different style docking port for 1.25m, probably one with 3 or 4 doors that open inwards so that the interior would be larger.
