[1.6.1] Behemoth Aerospace Engineering Large Parts v1.6.1


Recommended Posts

NOTICE: With permission from Greystork I am now updating this mod. Can a mod / Admin could update the mod index please.



Behemoth Aerospace Engineering

Large Parts Pack


Download from SpaceDock



This parts pack contains engines, tanks, and other part categories in three sizes that do not exist in stock KSP, namely 5m, 7.5m, and 10m. Parts are color-coded according to the universal electronic color code, simply because the author is an old RDAF radar technician. Hence, size4 (5m) is yellow, size5 (7.5m) is green, and size6 (10m) is blue.

Engines are kept at reasonable thrust figures and are thus not overpowered compared to the thrust/size curve of stock parts. The same goes for reaction wheels. Big spaceships are going to be sluggish, as one would expect.

This parts pack contains config snippets from the Community Tech Tree by Chris Adderley.

NOTE: As of version v1.3.5, BAE no longer includes the Firespitter plugin, but supports both it and Interstellar Fuel Switch. Either must be installed to enable multi-fuel tanks. In addition, Cross Feed Enabler is required to enable cross feed to radially attached 'Predator' tanks.

Recommended mods:

I am asking for your permission to update / continue / adopt / release the above named wonderful mod.

I absolutely love this mod and really want others to enjoy it as well.

Hopefully I hear back from you with an answer, but in case I don't hear back from you I intend to respectfully proceed as soon as the middle of Oct 2021, as permitted by the license of this mod.

I will provide recognition of original authors/maintainers; and I will gladly step aside should you ever want to continue this mod yourself.

Couple of requests:

  • In the interest of continuity and for the players, I am asking to be added to the SpaceDock and CurseForge 'Authors' so I can update / release using the same listing. Using the same listing will benefit the players and avoid confusion.
  • A posting on the related Forum thread would be swell along with a public posting in the mod's thread tagging and telling @HebaruSanand @DasSkelettabout this adoption so CKAN will be smoothly updated.
  • Permission to post this communication in a public space, specifically in the GitHub repo holding it for the purpose of legal transparency.

Thank you!
