Welcome to the Add-on Development Mod Library

Its been over a year since I've updated this library.  I'm still looking for anyone who would like to take it over.  I still would like to update it one more time to Gaarst Spreadsheet format before handing it over.  It is my intention to finish that project by the end of 2018.

*I ask that the community mod users do not deliberately necro old mods listed here for update requests.  If we can use this thread for those purposes, it will help the community as a whole avoid unnecessary cluttering of the main Development pages. 

This library is an easily accessible and organized listing of mods currently in development or were in development.  Hopefully, from this point forward, mods will no longer be buried in the forum pages and forgotten.  In addition, anybody looking for a potential project for updating or modifying can look here instead of trying to 'mine' for mods.  Many of the older mods listed here, in all probability, are still compatible for use with the current KSP v1.2.2.  However, use with caution to prevent game braking glitches or bugs.

For Modders (please read for any questions you have):

I am very confident that I have included 95% of all mods from the Add-on Development pages that have not been officially 'released'.  However, I am human and I may unintentionally included mods that can not be updated for whatever reason or may be obsolete due to KSP updates.  In addition, I may have missed mods or have mistakenly excluded others from the list.

Any modder who does not want their mod listed here can request for its removal, it will be removed in a timely manner.

Any modder can request they want their mod relocated to a different section of the library and it will be done in a timely manner.

I politely request that any modder who finds or knows about a mod in any of the sections that is updated, misplaced, obsolete or has been re-released, please inform me so we can keep the list cleaned up and streamlined.

Mod Placement Requests:

Any community member can request a mod for placement on this list so long as it meets a few requirements.  First requirement is that mod has a file for the community to use.  I will make an exception to concept mods so long as the mod author posts pictures of their progress so the community can see that work is actually being done.  Those mods will be posted in the Developer Diaries.   Second requirement is that it has not been completed and release to the Add-on Release pages.  I do not wish to double up on mod links to create any confusion. 

Vetting Standards for Mods:

  1. No mods without working plugins or parts.
  2. No mods that had been adopted, updated or re-released in the Community Library.
  3. No mods that were left in a incomplete or non functional state are included.
  4. No mods that the creator expressly requested not be included.

Mod Patch Notification:

Any community member who know of a mod that is out-dated but has a 'unofficial' patch located with in the mod thread can assist us in making that clear to the community.  Please provide the mod name and a link in this thread or PM @CarnageINC.  Please ensure the link you provide is still a live valid link for the mod.

Wanted to give a thanks to @Gaarst for letting me assist him in the updating and organizing the Community Library.  That work is the basis of this library, the format and style are based off his work.

Additionally, I wanted to give a special thanks to @paulprogart, @linuxgurugamer and @magico13 for their advice and assistance given to help make this library better, thank you guys!

Abandoned Mods

Abandoned by Author, Development Pages:


Final note, if the mod librarian stops being active in the libraries for longer than 6 months for whatever reason, I hope that someone will volunteer to continue maintaining this library for the community's use.  You have my permission to do.

For future curators of this library:  All posts created prior to April 1, 2017 have been inspected.  There is no need to go farther back than that.  There may be a dozen or so mods I may have missed or thought they were not in a working state to be included, its probably not worth the effort to find them.

Some advise for library maintanence:  The development pages are like a plant, always in growing and changing, they require more attentiveness than the release pages.  Only add mods that have functional models or code to the library.  Review Current and Older Dev section every 3-6 months to relocate mods as necessary.  If a mod is adopted and re-released in either Add-on forum, ensure you remove old or irrelivant links to keep library functional.

^^^ as am I.  As someone who may at some point grab something off this list to try reviving on as a break from other projects (because of course the only break from development for us Real Developers is more development!) I'd wanted to voice my support on the original thread but it was a busy weekend for me, and you moved too quick!  :rep:

However I don't understand why you not only included mods with known active authors, but put them at the top?!?  That almost seems like shaming.  I know that certainly wasn't the intent, but it just doesn't sit right with me TBH.

I thought the main purpose was to highlight known or suspected inactive mods for developers, so I'm not sure why including mods that are just not updated yet is needed?  For ordinary mod users I would think the CML (also excellent job BTW!) would already be sufficient for seeing what's available for current KSP and what's not.

At the very least I'd like to suggest reversing the section order.  Also rather than going by mod author status, perhaps likelihood would be better... e.g. "known abandoned", "probably abandoned", "possibly abandoned".  Some of that may be subjective but since there are always uncertainties with this type of thing it's hard not to be.

At the very least I'd like to suggest reversing the section order.  Also rather than going by mod author status, perhaps likelihood would be better... e.g. "known abandoned", "probably abandoned", "possibly abandoned".  Some of that may be subjective but since there are always uncertainties with this type of thing it's hard not to be.

You are correct, its not intentional.  Nor is it shaming, your reading way way to deep into ordering.  I'll rethink section names, but for organizational purposes I prefer the section order.  The main purpose of this library, injunction with the main community library, is to document every viable mod on the forum so mods will no longer be 'lost in time'.  For organizational reasons, the main library mostly contains mods that work for KSP.  If it was my choice, for strictly organizational reasons, any mod 'outdated' would be placed here and not included in the main library.

Mods listed here might work or they might need some assistance.  If an author says "Hey my stuff still works", it will promptly be put in the other library.  If not, it has place it can still be found.  You can almost think of this library as a retirement home for old mods.  That is the reasoning that ANY MOD that is not actually labeled v1.2+ is located here.  So for some reason if the mod doesn't actually get updated its still documented somewhere.  Its better to keep on top of the issue then it is trying to track down mods pages down from the top.  Is it more hands on or micro managing, yes I believe it is.  Do I have the time and interest in this method, yes I do.  Will I always feel this way, I don't know.  That's why I gave permission for anyone to take over the project if I'm not active for 6 months or more.

I view the ordering more as a courtesy than a shaming.  Would I like the current creators or caretakers to notice their mods are here, yes I would.  Do I want them to update their mods to v1.2+, yes I would.  Would I like them or anyone else to tell me they still work if they don't relabel them and don't need to be here, yes, I would appreciate that.  Are active modders more like to notice that their mods are here if they are up top, more likely.   Do I want to bother them with PM's or clog up threads with questions about updates or "does this still work?" ...NO I DO NOT.  I'm not a mind reader, nor do I read everything everyone says.  I have no clue if they care if the mods are here or not, but if they do care or want to help me ensure they are in the main library for community's benefit, then in my opinion, its best they are up top to be noticed.

I want mods listed here to find new life if they can.  If they don't, they don't.  Is it shaming?  I don't view it as such, nor should anyone else.  One last thing about this.  What is always found at the bottom of a toy box or a bargain bin?  Stuff no one wanted, noticed or cares about.  Why should this library be any different?

tl,dr; I'm wrong if I do, I'm wrong if I don't.  It is what it is.  But I will rethink the labeling, it didn't flow well to me anyways.

LOL @RealGecko!!!  Thats actually a cool song, thanks for that RG!!! :D

Yeah, my next little project is to mine out the Development pages.  I need to recharge after 2 weeks of hammering this stuff.  So I figure by next Saturday it will be done and probably another 50-60 more mods will be added to the list above.

All my mods listed should still be compatible since they are very simple and the syntax of the requirements didn't change (RT and Kopernicus)


I haven't updated any of those because I haven't received any complaint, but I still see the download counter tick, so I guess they still work

IMHO, you should remove mods which you know are under Active Development, such as FAR

I thought about that.  How about this, if its already in the main library, such as FAR and Infernal Robotics, I'll remove it from here.  If its under development/updating but not already in the main library, I'll keep links here till they are released by the modder. 

Maybe I'll add a small section for any mods that someone is currently updating.  The pain of all this work is finding and keeping track of things.  So having a physical description with a link helps move mods from one library to the other.  Does this sound like a good idea?

Okay, since I have your blessing Sigma, I'll retag your mods a light green and send them over to Gaarst to insert into the main library.  Thank you for clarifying their compatibility.

I have talked to linuxgurugamer about the point you brought up.  If 2 people have similar thoughts on the same subject so quickly it means that its an issue.  Thank you for your input, I want this library to be as user friendly as possible.

The IXS Enterprise mod is not abandoned, the developement was taken from @Sophia to @Denko666, here's the relative thread:


Noted, thank you :wink:

You are aware of FTL Drive Continued?  

Yeah, I'm aware that you revived the mod.

But I'm seeking for alternatives also, I have some options here: FTL, Warp Drive (either standalone with KSS Asimov chassis or based on IXS Warpship) and ESLD that looks pretty interesting :)

I never tried it as it's not updated since 1.04 which I never played.

And if we speak seriously I'm currently interested in reviving ESLD Jump Beacons.

There's a revived version that works in 1.2:

Slightly different approach to the same problem: FTL Drive is a jump-drive, ESLD Beacons are warp-gates.  They behave vary similarly, but who has to pay for the jump is different.

FTL Drive doesn't have a significant cost, other than needing EC and having to get the beacon out there in the first place.  It's very useful for streamers (I was asked to revive this by one) who don't want to spend all their time flying.

Actually, ESLD Beacons also has a jump-drive, the IB-1 Integrated Drive

[1.1.3] SimpleLife, by MatterBeam -  This mod aims to integrate simple life support and Kerbal recruitment mechanics into the stock game.

@MatterBeam complained about lack of time for development and even passed pleasure of supporting Simple Construction to me.

The mod itself is a set of MM patches that use USILifeSupport.dll (available for 1.2.2) and CivilianManagment.dll (outdated but there's a Revamp). So might be not hard to revive.

This thread is quite old. Please consider starting a new thread rather than reviving this one.
