What version of Kerbal Konstructs are you using?

I was the latest for ksp 1.5 but after opening the game I noice the game has placed them already. So I don't know if that worked but I had to reopen the game for them to appear

Hello All,

Here's some tasty development updates. This is the first vertical assembly building I would like to show you. The LC41 VIF

This design is a kerbalised version of the Atlas 5 vertical integration facility, A real-life building at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.

This Is a small to medium size VAB, Its about 3/4 the height of the KSC lvl3 VAB.

Another tasty update from this big tease. :P Can't wait for release, but I understand the need for further development first. Also, is the flag on this structure available for us to use? I like the way it looks and would like to use it in one of my saves.

The flag is not my content and borrowed from the brilliant Cormorant Aeronology by @Pak. If you'd like to use it in your game, its included in his shuttle parts mod!

Thank you! I'll be sure to check it out once I get home.

On the topic of VABs; Here is another one, much chunkier this time. Let me introduce you to the SMAB.

Again this is a building based on a real-life building at KSC Florida. Its officially called the Solid Motor Assembly Building (SMAB) and was constructed to be part of the Titan ITL complex.

Recently the SMAB was repurposed as a payload integration facility by SpcaeX due to it still having usable cleanrooms.However I don't think it's being used by spacex anymore as the SMAB was damaged in Oct 2016

What size will it be? What dimensions /weight will it be able to support?

Are there any horizontal integration buildings planned, like this one?

Interesting how NASA's buildings are usually pretty far away from the launch pad, while SpaceX placed it right beside it...

So the SMAB is just a little smaller than the lvl2 VAB and a little bigger than the lvl1. The door is about 50 meters tall. Currently KK doesn't support size and weight restrictions, maybe sometime in the future? Also, I think its the launchpad level that defines how big a rocket can be launched? We will see. Here's a few pics for scale:

You should watch this space. You might be pleasantly surprised.

I didn't really believe Elon played KSP until I saw this picture...

Hello Again!

I guess its time for another little update? Let's have a look at this fella. He's called the SMARF (Solid Motor Assembly and Readiness Facility)
E7GEwQs.png

I know it looks like a big chunky box, but again, this is based on a real assembly building used by NASA. The real-life SMARF was a later addition to the ITL system and used to assemble the Titan IVB.

The SMAB and the SMARF are located really close to each other at the cape, connected by the same piece of road. I felt that I couldn't do one without the other.
It was a challenge making the SMARF look pretty, Its got a lot of flat boring walls and is basically a big box. I'm pleased with how it turned out.

I plan to have these two as the same kind of size class, the SMARF model is a little taller, but not by much.

@Omega482 I know this may seem a bit absurd or out of the norm, but how about some air force/military things? For example, an aircraft research facility or barracks etc?

@Omega482 I thought that I’d bring this thread back, because all of this stuff looks fantastic! It’s using stock textures to reduce RAM footprint, right?

Yup! No additional textures needed - everything he needs is part of the game already.

I'll drum up some activity, too. It's been a minute since the last update. Is the new update setting you back any? Any new buildings? I've noticed a lot of VAB and construction buildings, but not many pads. Any plans for launch pads?

Is there a github page where I can download the buildings that are ready so far, and especially the crawlerways? I can't wait :D

Any chance of getting a prerelease version to play with? These are really awesome!
