Recommended Posts

Ksp in stock form has never been the MOST real it can be so how can you improve this?

so what mods could you use without crashing your game?

RO/RSS/RP-0 and a whole other sett of mods. :) 
On startup I have 45k MM-patches, with if I', right just above 100 mods. But you can get these images of them

Oh, so very many.  If you want to dip your toe in the deep end, try rescaling the system with Sigma Dimensions.

Also get Principia to go with Realism Overhaul and Real Solar System.

But be careful to not predict too far into the future with Principia.

Depends on what you mean by real.  Several people have suggested RSS (Real Solar System), but that replaces all the stock planets with our real life solar system (Earth, etc.) at real life scale.  Is that what you mean?  Or do you want to keep the stock planets and just make them more realistic?  Also by "real" do you mean you want to make the celestial bodies feel more realistic, or do you want your rockets and spacecraft to be more realistic?  For instance, are you more interested in a visual makeover of the planets, or are you looking for rocket parts that more closely resemble real life, or perhaps both?  Do you like the scaled down size of the stock system, or do you want to play at real scale?  Or do you want to play at a scale that feels more lifelike but still uses stock-sized parts?

For us to give you a proper answer, you really need to explain better what it is you are trying to achieve.  For instance, if you want to keep the stock planets, then you can ignore all the responses about RSS.  You need to help us focus our responses on the right thing so we can point you in the right direction.

OK, so it sounds like you're probably going to want to go the RSS/RO route.  That's not my thing, so the RSS/RO guys are going to have to help you.  We're getting out of my comfort zone.

We don't have that. Although there is a mod below for the actual KSC, however.

Supported mods are listed in the respected OPs. Realism Overhaul is a mod suite, or a mod "pack" if you prefer (despite not really being that), so you've got to check and see what it supports. There's a good selection of parts supported to build pretty much anything from post-WWII to the near future.

For "real rockets", I really can recommend:

 

RaiderNick's stuff (lotsa diversity, Soyuz, Proton, Titan IV, oldschool rockets, Probes)

FASA (Mercury, Gemini, Apollo, Redstone, Atlas, Titan, Saturn IB/V, the stuff that brought people to the moon)

RealScaleBoosters (rather modern rocketry, very diverse)

 

If you like to construct your own replicas without dedicated replica mods, I do strongly recommend SSTU, it has a lot of really nice tank options and a nice collection of engines.

The latter version usually implies a lot of own research, tank masses, fuel masses, burn times, etc, pp, makes you read interesting stuff on the webs, if you are generally enthused, that'd be the way to go, or you can as well simply use the replicas and blast 'em skywards for entertainment.

Peace and have fun, especially with the R-7 family :)
