Is there a mod that you couldn't live without?

Recommended Posts

Is there one mod that if it wasn't updated to work with KSP1.1 would mean you would just quit playing?

No, no. Definitely not. That's one reason I said about it being updated. 

I'm talking existing mods here.

No. But there are some that would come close.

No Precise Node and no suitable substitute would be a big blow. I'd probably give up on my "100 Worlds" save with its modded solar system, and give up 'serious' interplanetary missions in general and just mess around in Kerbin's SOI.

No FAR would make me pretty much give up on planes, spaceplanes, and shuttles, and go back to doing everything with rockets.

No Kopernicus would nix my "100 Worlds" save and make me sad, but maybe I'd go and do a grand tour in the stock system or something.

But nothing will make me play 1.0.5. I've experienced 1.1 and I am not going back.

No, but Kerbal Engineer comes close

There are plenty. Delta-V indicators are at the top of the list. KER, Mechjeb. The stock game just doesn't give enough info to properly play.

Contract configurator. No, I don't want to test that part I never use anyway on a ludicrious course taking me someplace I didn't really want to go. I want to build a space station, upgrade and manage it, and go to other planets. I want world firsts and the like.

Precise node wouldn't make me quit, but I might curl up in the corner and cry for a bit. Same for maneuver node splitter.

For serious?  Probably the only missing mod that would make me quit outright would be Module Manager.  But it'd take awhile.

I got very used to the Editor Extension and No Offset Limits mods over the last couple months. And I think I would miss Precise Node too, plus maybe Alarm Clock. All others I could live without (assuming dV readings are stock, haha)

KAC probably, but thinking about it seriously I would still play.  It would mean only one mission at a time instead of 'many' (30-something atm) though, so would be very limiting.

I did my first 150-plus hours without any mods and still landed and returned from Duna and the Moons of Jool.

So, no, I don't imagine I'd quit.

But I'd miss KER.

Quit for missing mods? Probably not, but there are some which would probably let me do some serious programming if they were missing: Kerbal Alarm Clock, the delta V indicators KER/Mech Jeb and most importantly: The Docking Alignment Indicator is a crucial thing for me.

Suprisingly, TextureReplacer. For example, imagine this scenario:

"Jeb, is that you in the white suit? No wait that's Bill. That's Bob. I don't know who that is."

Nothing that would make me quit, but it was a long few days waiting for RCS Build Aid.

KAC! I can do the rocket equation, but paying attention to all flights at the same time, or resort to a single mission at a time? Pfff. (Although there's a new feature in 1.1 that might be a suitable replacement if KAC didn't update, but it won't make me uninstall it)

Nothing :)   I only play with small mods that make the game slightly better,  2 of those are in 1.1

MechJeb. Readouts and an autopilot for just-in-case situations.

Final Frontier.  I love how it give my game a sense of history. Kerbal construction time adds to the immersion  as well

Remote Tech comes to mind. Fundamentally changes how you deal with probes and transmissions.

Especially when coupled with other mods that add limitations like life support mods.

I don't know that I'd quit without them, but I'd much prefer not to be without MechJeb and Kerbal Alarm Clock.  There are a few others I'd prefer to have too, but I think those are the ones I'd miss the most.

KER, although I really only use it for Dv and twr info. But if Kerbal Joint Reinforcement were to disappear, I would have a very hard time enjoying ksp. I've come to despise wobbly rockets and just slapping struts everywhere seems like it shouldn't be necessary. Just my opinion though :)
