Best mod to come out this year! Do you think you could make a video showcase of the mod? That'd be awesome! Keep up the great work!

Yeah, a video instruction definitely helps since I didn't properly place the parts coordination, I will prepare one as soon as I fix the coordination problem.

Do you have to install Hyper Edit /VesselMover Continued/Kerbal Konstructs with Water spawn point to put the Aircraft Carrier in the water?

There might be more choice, like put GN-drive on the ship and fly the ship to the sea, 100,000 t is not a big challenge for dual-drive system.

You can find GN drive here :
