Starship Launch Expansion

 

About

Starship Launch Expansion is a mod that collects Starbase real life launch pads, towers, stands and all the stuff necessary to support your Starship launches in KSP. All the parts are designed to withstand the power of every launch without exploding (hopefully).

The mod is in Beta right now so any bugs or suggestions you can contact me through discord.

Note: Orbital Launch Pad model is old, revamp is in progress

See my roadmap to know what is coming!: SLE Trello

"Starship Launch Expansion is a mod that collects Starbase real life launch pads, towers, stands and all the stuff necessary to support your Starship launches in KSP. All the parts are designed to withstand the power of every launch without exploding"
Soooooooooo.. what exactly is this? Is it something like extraplanetary launchpads where you can build and launch from orbit..... or...... eh?
 Edit: NVM... I now see the hidden pictures.

Hi :) 

I know that this forum is not the forum of Starship Expansion Project, but it does not have a thread so I will post here.

Does anybody else have wimpy heat tolerance for the Starship? Today I had to use the 'ignore max temperature' cheat to get through re-entry. The ship can barely take any heat. :(

 

Please help!

And let me know if posting about SEP on this thread is unreasonable :joy:

This works only with Realism Overhaul? Or there is a patch for stock or something. Because when I load the game B9 Part Switch gives many errors saying that there are missing resources, such as liquid methane that does not exist in stock.dECNtuj.jpg

CryoTanks requires Community Resource Pack. Not RO
