Base. Station. Ship

Question

In KSP what actually defines these for the game? I Just tried making a base on kerbin but it only recognizes it as a ship. The same happened when I wanted to make a station in orbit.

The command module determines it, Cockpits will be planes, rovemax will give rovers, lander cans make landers etc.

 

If you right click the command module, you can select rename vessel, and change the type in the rename menu.

 

You can also change it from the tracking station, select the vessel, Click the i button (bottom left) and then double click the vessels name in the info box that pops up.

Also, worth noting that "build a ________" contract requirements are independent of what icon the ship has.

For example,  if it says to build a space station with certain parts,  you can complete that even if the game is calling your vessel a lander or something.   You just need to have the parts called for,  put it in the orbit called for,  etc.
