Large Structural Components Redux for KSP 1.1.3
by udk_lethal_d0se


This mod adds re-designed parts from the Large Structural Components Addon (created by myself in 2013) to the game.  Each part is available in Career mode and can be unlocked via the tech tree, the parts mainly being contained under the Specialized Construction node.  There are also a few new parts, not belonging to the original pack and have been designed to work with TAC Life Support, and Kerbal Inventory System. I've also added a little plugin which also creates a new category for the parts.

The pack contains 13 parts in total, and a few more are in the development pipeline.

- UDK-RDX "Abode"
- UDK-RDX "Aisle"
- UDK-RDX "Cradle"
- UDK-RDX "Crossroads"
- UDK-RDX "Crossroads Mk2"
- UDK-RDX "SS-01 [Science]" (Compatible with: KIS)
- UDK-RDX "SS-02 [Food]" (Compatible with: KIS, TAC Life Support)
- UDK-RDX "SS-03 [Water]" (Compatible with: KIS, TAC Life Support)
- UDK-RDX "SS-04 [Waste]" (Compatible with: KIS, TAC Life Support)
- UDK-RDX "Foyer"
- UDK-RDX "Lobby"
- UDK-RDX "Peekaboo"
- UDK-RDX "Nucleus"

Great mod :D Shouldn't all of the parts with windows (except of course for the peekaboo) have crew capacity though?

Believe it or not, I had mulled this over quite a bit, and it may change when I create the IVA's. I see the parts that don't have crew capacity as modules that allow traversal but not accommodation occupation.

I love this mod - there's a big lack of crew parts in 3.75m and larger.  Some quick requests I'd love to see added to the mod:

- Variants of the Abode module or sub-types (as done in the Near Future Construction Octo-Truss stuff) that terminate the ends of the module in 2.5 and 3.75m diameters.  E.g.: the default version that has 2.5m ends on both sides, one that is 2.5/3.75 and one that had 3.75m diameter on both ends.

- A large capacity science lab, similar in capacity to the Abode module and maybe a little larger to accommodate the workspaces. 

- A version of the Cradle that's designed to connect to the other modules and has a landing for EVA kerbals to have handholds to attach to they can access the KIS pallet modules without having to deal with floating off into space.

- A set of super large capacity habitation modules.  Either longer 3.75m or (preferably) 5m versions of the Abode, etc.  I would love to have the ability to create stations and spacecraft that can accommodate 20+ Kerbals without being huge, spindly affairs.  Might make sense to have these be on a higher tech tree node.

- A super large capacity science lab similar to the previous point.  There used to be a mod (now gone) that had a modded Mk3 passenger fuselage that provided a 16 position science lab for qiuckly racking up research points.  I would love to see a similarly sized lab again.


Thanks for your work, it looks great so far!

Idee a thruss system with integrate docking funktion (hook system) and and a tunnel with outer rotate with docking for gravity system  a version with 2 ports and one with 4. 

There's already a nice truss set, created by @SpeedyB which you'll find at this link...

Also, (as I'd forgotten I'd seen them) have a look at @Nertea's Near Future Construction mod.

I also believe there's a few ring type parts available too, however I haven't got any links.

Glad to see you have returned!

Two parts I (still) use from your original parts pack are the Large Storage Tank and the Large Inline Generator.

Any plans to revisit those?

Thanks, I'm quite enjoying modding again.

I have been planning to revisit those, however I've really just been pondering over model designs for the Generator and Storage tank; which I've now got a good idea of.

I'll post another update with new parts when I've got a little more time this weekend.

yes is nice but no intergate dock system .need system to build first the truss then the module. to release must i use docking ports to connect too thruss.

I'm not sure I really understand what you're asking. If the issue is with having a truss with an integrated docking node to avoid the need to attach a docking port on the end, then that's not something I have been planning to add to this pack. You should probably ask the other mod developer(s).
