There seem to be a problem for me. 

The more I play, the more the tech tree screen spams Knes parts all over the place. They duplicate faster than Tribbles. 

Fortunately not in the VAB part list.

There seems to be a duplicate somewhere.

May be because I use Restocked and Restocked plus?

Or because 1.8.1 stock gamee  has a Pollux booster as well?

I also play 1.8.1 with Knes Restock & Restock+ i've never see this problem.

Do you have a custom Techtree ?

No, see on the Restock thread, I have solved the problem, is was an incompatibiluty with another small mod that I took off to solve the problem.

I examined the names of your parts and none of them overlapped with stock parts so I concluded that your mods couldn't be the source of the problem, that lead me to another one.

@Well I found an error in the 1.875m fairing config. The fairing panels weigh much more than all the other KNES fairings. File _Knes_Aero_Fairing_1875.cfg contains "UnitAreaMass = 0.12". I think it should be "UnitAreaMass = 0.012".

I also found smaller initial mass inconsistencies in the fairing collection. Sorting them from lightest to heaviest, I get 2.5m, 1.875, 3.75, 0.9375, 1.25. Assuming that stock fairings are fairly balanced, the 0.9375 and 1.25 look good, while the 2.5, 1.875, and 3.75 are too light.

I'm having a lot of fun with your mod, thank you for making it.

How many seats in that capsule?

It was the only really missing braket of parts in the Knes spectrum, a bigger classical capsule and its service module as well as bigger docking ports.

The new capsule looks beautiful! I especially love the detailed service module. I think this will pair well with Nertera's station parts, especially the 1.875 ones coming down the pipeline.

There seem to be typo error on file "_Knes_mrk_SM_Extended.cfg":

"TechRequired = commandModule" should be "TechRequired = commandModules

Not a problem on sandbox mod but prevent usage of the module in science and career Mode

Nice work, really nice work @Well

BTW, I really love what you did with the CBMs. Do you know @cxg2827 and his ISS mod? That's where they came from, that mod is no longer updated, but the models and textures are still really nice.

Idk, i've made some test, but i'm not really interested to make it, idk why. I love ATV irl, but not really interested to see it in game.

Probably because that suggest an other timeline in my Alternate history idk.

I recommand people they want a cargo, to put a fuel tank or KIS cargo module on top of the MRK SM instead of the MRK pod, this could make a great cargo vehicle
