0.625m stuff will happen at some point, but keep in mind a 0.625m ISRU Refinery would be neither fast nor efficient..For the 3.75m drill, an inline one is planned, a stack 3.75m drill depends on whether or not I can come up with a decent design that doesn't look like a repurposed Tunnel Boring Machine.

I'll add MKS/USI support MM patches for the next update - any others that would be good to have?

Something to look forward to for the next update - Got the first of the inline drills done:



Also, just saw your mod....I clicked the DL button almost instantly :D

nice mod, looks like it fits great with stock. Can't wait to try it out! (now to unlock the parts in my career save.....)

If that's what you aiming at, maybe it would be better for 0.625 converter to be monoprop only? Because making it LFO only, even less efficient than 1.25 variant AND unable to produce monoprop makes no sense. Compact monoprop only ISRU module for probe/rcs remote refueling would definitely have it's own utility niche.

I've considered it, and in light of your argument, I'll leave the micro refinery with the usual LF, O, LF/O, MP conversion options - You're correct, LF/O only and no monoprop is needlessly limiting, but while a MP only would have its niche,it would still be the case of lower efficiency and a fuel type limitation.

TBH I can't see him doing a review of it in its current state either.

Making some progress on 0.625m drills. I also started fooled around with some landing leg concepts that might be useful for mining craft/bases and so forth, ended up with this:


Waiting on 1.1 and its new wheel code to start rigging it.
