 After 4 months of work, I am very proud to present my first add-on: Aurora Space Center!
 

Presentation

Aurora Space Center is a mod that adds IRL/fictives buildings and launchpads!
This mod has for vocation to be improved very strongly in the future, come back often to see the thread!

Buildings and current launchpads:

Features:

  • Buildings and launchpads use stock textures. All other textures (logo or text) can be modified in paint for exemple!
  • Buildings and pads will automatically turn on and turn off spotlight like the real KSC buildings.
  • RSS compatible: all buildings are done in real scale ! (for stock users down the scale of buildings at building setup)
  • Buildings and pads use a auto-matching grass color module, so that you can place them anywhere on Kerbin/Earth and even Mars !
  • Animated object by a simple click on it:

INSTALLATION & HOW TO USE IT

Install Kerbal Konstructs and Module Manager (link below) and put Aurora Space Center into your GameData directory and that's all! 

To put a building: open the KK menu (ctrl+k) and place it anywhere you want ! 
(If you choose to place a launchpad, you will need to restart your KSP to convert it automatically into a launchpad)

 

A huge thank you to @JadeOfMaar, @Omega482 and @CobaltWolf for their help, without them Aurora Space Center could not have looked like this.
And a very special thank to @damonvv who helped me enormously when I started!

FAQ

  • How do you do that ? Check this video !
  • How to open the HIF doors ? The HIF doors can only be opened for the LC-2 launchpad, for the primary door click on the top segment of the door, for the south door, click on the left segment

Thanks a lot !

I use Tundra's Space Center and Omega's stuff everyday, I really like these mods and I just wanted to try something different.
More stuff to come and I can't wait to release the next update !

Looks really good!

The only thing that "bother" me is that the textures of building looks like plastic (well it's the case for every building in the main game also)

Would be really cool if it could be compatible with Textures Unlimited, but I guess it would take a lot of time to redo basically everything. I'm thinking of the polished metallic look that this mod adds to some parts

(I don't even know if this mod is compatible with building, it's designed for parts AFAIK)

If the models for the buildings are loaded as .mu's, TU can patch them right in the game-database to use whatever shaders and textures are desired.

Yes, Kerbal Konstruct use .mu for statics

I understand and appreciate the implications of stock texture use; likely wouldn't be directly compatible with the PBR shaders, and might need additional texture work, certainly not a simple/fast project.

Well, if you decide this is a route you would like to go down or look into, and you would like assistance with the setup, just ping me or send me a PM/etc; will be glad to offer whatever help or guidance that I can.

This looks great @Zoeille!

I cobbled together my own version of the Mahia LC a while ago with Omega’s parts and a real elevation map, but I’d love to revisit it with proper buildings.
