Initial release is live.  Bug reports and balancing suggestions welcome.  Unfortunately I don't have the original model files so I can't tweak those.

I've reduced the cost of most of the ports from the original mods as they were rather eye-watering (not sure if KSP has nerfed part costs since 2015..)  The ports still work well (please note the Non-Androgynous ports are very sensitive to correct orientation!) and look great. Many thanks to @CaptainKipardfor creating them in the first place!

Enjoy!

I remember these!  Thank you for bringing them up to date.

Any chance you're already working on updating the nodes on his Low Profile Hubs? 

LOL, funny you should mention this.. not personally interested in them (at this stage anyway), but figured I probably should re-release them as well instead of letting them bitrot.

EDIT: Will have to wait until tomorrow though, I'm knackered. Been burning the candle a bit lately and it's already past midnight again.. zzzzZZ but if you can't wait, I'll pop the GitHub link into that thread.  They seem to work except for a missing "Flag" file which I can't find.

Thanks for the compile/rerelease! Questions: I can replace the previous/pre-this-release KipEng folder with the one here without any issues? (as in there are no substantive changes between your rerelease and the original release that will break crafts built with the last version UDPs, for example?)

And would you have plans or interests to make a 5m and/or 7.5m version of the megachonk UDPs?

I don't anticipate there to be any issues. The only things I tweaked were the VAB tab and prices.

But I'd still recommend you take a backup of your Save (should do that semi-regularly anyway) and give it a try.

I don't have the model files and I'm not a modeller anyway.  I'd be happy to add them in if someone makes the models/textures though.  There's an outstanding request to add UDP's which don't support the 0.625m size and hence would be "passable" for CLS as well. But again, that would really require some modelling.

If you don't care about the looks you can make some new cfg files and resize the existing ones to suit.

there are alignment arrows 

Thanks for posting the solution as well.  Sorry for not replying but I'm not able to test right now to see what it could have been.

Release v1.0 is out.

Unfortunately no longer compatible with earlier versions of KSP since I added rotation to the universal docking ports, and also made all of the smaller ports able to be cargo.

If there is a desperate need/want to have a version compatible with KSP1.11.x I can do so..
