the next DLC/update should be about improving kerbals

Recommended Posts

now I don't mean improving the creatures themselves I more mean that we should give these guys more to do.

we're already seeing them have inventories (sort of) but now I have a couple ideas for using these little guys for things like more useful EVAs, one Idea is "K-Struts" these would be smaller more fragile struts with limited range that kerbals can add on EVA to repair things or better fend off the Kraken, each pod or cockpit would have a limited transferable amount (perhaps the could be stored in the new storage bay that comes with Breaking Ground).By the way, i think EVA packs should work while on ladders.

Does anyone else have any ideas on how to make Kerbals more useful

To answer you question.. yes! Make courage and stupidity actually mean something, and if we're being real here, shouldn't kerbal engineers be the only ones capable of using your K struts idea? Of course if k struts becomes a thing so should rigidly attached fuel pipes from kerbal inventories. Also I dont think engineers should be the only ones to pack parachutes. Since when was folding fabric too complicated for scientists and space pilots?!

I like this idea! also being able to use EVA packs on a ladder would help the venerable 'getting out and pushing' method of propulsion a lot easier.

I personally would like a Kerbal Kustomiser dlc so different Kerbals will actually look different and not just have the same black hair, have a wider variety of suits and make said suits upgradable through either the Astronaut Complex,  the kerbals' levels or R&D. There's my 2 pence.

In my careers, I usually only give my kerbals old cosmonaut suits until Astronaut Complex L2, then I give them the normal suit. When my career ▼ gets to that point, I suppose I will finish with the BG suits.

Also, I saw in another thread here the idea that you would have different kinds of suits for different situations: one just for oxygenated worlds like Kerbin and Laythe, a pressure suit for Eve, heat suits for Moho and a vacuum suit for the rest of the system. I think that would be a very interesting idea.

This. And how about instead of having these K-struts we would have a welding tool instead? That way you could use normal struts and connect 2 different vessels for fuel transfer.
