I'd vote "hell yeah" if the alternative was what we have now. If the alternative is a new set of consistent parts that don't look like rubbish (i.e.: pretty much any change from the extant rocket parts), then I'm willing to give those a try. I might be more willing to wait simply because I no longer use the stock parts because they are so awful, so I'm not even used to seeing them at this point.

The stock KSP parts need redesign. And Ven's Revamp has some good ideas (design and parts, especially engines with different diameter mounts).

But Ven's Revamp is quite particular in terms of style and I understand that some users wouldn't like it. So no to it in stock.

So I was thinking of how much I love vsr, and wondered why the hell it hasn't been implemented into stock. So thought I'd make this topic, cos... I felt like it.

Even though you didn't get the response you hoped for - thanks for making this topic to spread the word about the greatest mod ever! So glad to find someone else who agrees with me :)

I recently downloaded it for the first time and I was blown away. I pretty much never wanna play without it again. My first installed mod used to be DOE. It is now VSR.

Just checked out the image album on the mod page and...

I don't really care for it, no offense to the creator as that just boils down to personal opinion.

No accounting for taste as they say.

I took one look at the glorious but subtle way the MK1-2 pod was fixed and never looked back! And the new Terrier! And the new Poodle with proper engine bell!! 

Sorry I'll stop now..

I like VSR, I use it a lot. But it does have it's own distinct non-stock style. Much more realistic, less cartoony. I find that when I use it with other mods, I end up reverting some of the parts (the pods, hitchhiker, lab, mostly stuff that has hatches) back to stock, just because the style difference is so jarring. But the other stuff, engines, tanks, structural parts, they're unreservedly awesome. 

In any case, I think that petitioning for it to be made stock is sort of moot at this point, considering that the developers already decided to have PorkJet do an art pass on the parts for 1.2. My guess is that they aren't going to just toss that out the window and pull VSR into stock instead.

I think the only thing that drags me away from the vanilla style at this point is how some parts look like they're re-used oil barrels. Or simply stuff that was never intended to go into space. :sticktongue: I would love to see the art pass make all of the parts a bit more space-worthy. :)

I think ProkJet shoule handle it. There used to be a few artists in the past reworking the parts and that's what made them so inconsistent.

These switchable tank butts are pretty dope tho

I looked at some of the pictures and they looked rather like plastic parts to me, maybe it's a generational thing: I'm semi-prejudiced against plastic, to my 83 year old mom all plastic is junk (even HMW plastic :wink: ).

Well I sort of agree that it doesn't look the best, but the part descriptions usually say that the parts aren't space worthy! Which makes sense for early tech tree stuff as well, rockets a being duct taped together. Maybe there could be tech nodes that upgrade the all the early "found by the side of the road" parts into better shinier parts instead of adding new ones with maybe an option to toggle the tech level.

I abstained from voting because whilst I really like Ven's mod, I doubt its likely - or appropriate - that squad will just dump the majority of their part models and textures in exchange for some 3rd party ones.

Very much so, I can't play the game without it anymore and the parts fit seamlessly with the porkjet parts which the modmaker even leaves untouched.

 

...With the exception of the docking ports, you'd have to make the extendable ports into the ven version.

It has a particular style that might not be for everyone, while the current parts are ok.... They could definitely use work, but personally I don't see a problem with the current parts
