Coriolis Space Systems | V1.0.0 | Space tethers & more based on the movie Stowaway

Coriolis Space Systems is a small parts mod which adds a number of parts based on the movie Stowaway, most notably a set of simple extendible tethers in three sizes. These are ideal for constructing spinning tether-based spacecraft, building skycranes, construction equipment, or any other use you can think of. The tether parts use & require Breaking Ground's system, so they are effectively extremely long extending pistons. This means that they will not behave as a real tether would, but hopefully makes them more stable than a KAS or plugin based solution. The tethers are sized 0.625m, 1.25m and 2.5m, and can extend to 50m, 100m, and 150m respectively. 

Note: I advise that you retract & lock any tethers before leaving to the space centre, switching to another vessel, or undocking. Stock robotics are a little unstable and with parts as large as these you may encounter problems.

Also include is the Decondo crew capsule, based on the capsule seen in the movie. This features integrated RCS & abort/OMS thrusters, a full IVA, and support for Waterfall. A nose cone is also included which brings the front of the craft to a streamlined point. This can either open bilaterally to reveal a docking port beneath or be jettisoned entirely.

DEPENDENCIES

Coriolis requires B9PartSwitch, Module Manager, HabTechProps and Benjee10 Shared Assets, all of which are bundled with the download. 

This mod requires the Breaking Ground DLC to function correctly. Without the DLC installed the tether parts will be at the very least non-functional, and at worse may cause problems.
