USI and how to use it

Recommended Posts

sebi.zzr's link is a good starting point, but be aware that USI isn't a single mod, it's a set of mods that can be used independently or together, so what part of that wiki applies will depend on which of the USI modules you installed.

Indeed, which part of USI?

USI-LS?  Your kerbals will need supplies to live off, your supply cache can be extended through the use of fertilizer + mulch in an agroponics module to create more supplies.  (It's a bit lossy, IIRC)

MKS? I think that adds hab/home timers to kerbals, so you can't just stick them into sardine cans for years at a time (even with lots of supplies).  Plus it adds a lot of more advanced resource chains.

Konstruction? Useful for lots of reasons, like building larger space stations in multiple launches or increasing the mass that a kerbal can move around while on EVA (using KIS/KAS)

USI-LS uses Supplies and includes green houses to let you produce more supplies. It also has hab/home timers that force you to consider how much living space you're giving your kerbals. It's entirely self contained.

MKS uses a more complex life support model and adds more resources to manage plus a ton of additional parts to support large ship and basebuilding.
