KSP Tools
KSP Tools is an application for Windows OS, based on .NET Framework. (it is needed Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5 or higher to run it
It was developed by me as practice on Microsoft Technologies and what is better exercise than making an application for your favorite game?!
I have been playing Kerbal Space Program since 2013 and I really love this game!! I already have over 1300 hours on it!

This application has a combination of 6 tools-calculators to make your life easier when you want to organize a interplanetary mission.

 

The first tool is the Mission Calculator.

You can choose the planets and moons that you want to include in your mission,
among the Stock Game and the 2 popular Mods with planets (RSS, Outer Planet),
and it will provide to you a lot of information about these planets-moons.
Also It can calculate the phase angle between the planets the interval window, the transfer time,
the Δv for every single route ,the total travel time and the Δv Budget for your mission .
(the Δv is calculated as a summarize of the routes from the Δv maps . All the other information is taken from the wiki )

The second tool is Δv Calculator.

It can calculate the total Δv and the Δv for every single stage of your rocket. 

Also it can provide to you the thrust per weight ratio of your rocket for every
planet-moon  among the Stock Game and the 2 popular Mods with planets (RSS, Outer Planet).

The third tool is Biome Maps.

You can choose between the planets-moons you like and it will provide
to you the Biome Map and many details about the selected planet-moon.

Hi Obrelix,

I really appreciate your work on this tool, so first I want to say Thank You!

Now I have  a Question about the Mission Calculator, I'm missing a feature to show Launch Windows for entered trips, are you going to include it in a further release or am I just blind and don't see this option.

And I found a typo in the description of the celestial bodies, it say Oxigen present.Yes/No but it should be Oxygen present: Yes/No

Hello Vulkaistos and thank you for the feedback!

My next target is  to add 2 features to the Mission Calculator. The extra features will calculating and drawing the ejection angle and phase angle (the phase angle is already calculating). So i think this will solve the problem!
