Licence is CC-BY-NC-SA http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/4.0/ This mod is designed for Career Mode. Designed to make it more like Science Mode, but with building upgrades, and kerbal hiring costs. It removes all contracts, apart from World Firsts Progression contracts. World Firsts still give you all the funds, science, rep that they normally give, but that is all you will EVER get! NEW ANGLECAN Progression Plus 1.5 Download from Spacedock Requires ANGLECAN Progression and Module Manager (not included). Licence is CC-BY-NC-SA http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/4.0/ Adds in Fuel Costs Who might like to use this mod? People who dislike contracts, yet want to have the option of upgradeable facilities not possible in Science Mode. What does it do? Removes all contracts except World Firsts. Removes all part costs (including fairings). Removes all resource costs (except Ore). This means all flights are free, without cost, not for fuel or anything! What does this mean? It'll take a trip to orbit to receive enough World First Funds to unlock the Mission Control, and Tracking Station for node planning. A trip around the Mun will unlock Funds to upgrade other facilities. Unlocking all facilities will most probably take a trip to Duna, Eve etc. Hiring kerbals still costs Funds. You'll need to get other places if you kill your kerbals off as there are no free kerbals from rescue contracts. As per normal gameplay, kerbals hireage costs increase with every hire! What can I do to get Moar Funds? Go to Mission Control and actually accept the World First Contracts. This will net you Moar Funds for that World First. Strategies to convert Science/Rep to Funds (obviously only from those World Firsts). Introducing OreEconomics. Ore is the only resource that costs. And the cost has been increased 2500% to 50 Funds per unit. Expensive if you want it from the VAB or SPH! Go to the Mun, or Minmus, or an Asteroid, mine it, return to Kerbin and recover the Ore container. Moar profit the closer you are to the KSC! Of course you'll need to get the science first to unlock the Tech Tree to get the parts in order to mine the Ore. What other options? This is still too easy, unlocking the TechTree on half a dozen launches to Mun and Minmus as the World Firsts are still too juicy. Play on hard mode and reduce Funds, Science et al. to 60%, or less! Use ANGLECAN Progression Plus https://spacedock.info/mod/3178 Increasing Penalties in the game settings makes building upgrades and kerbals moar expensive! Play a different TechTree? OreEconomics and Mod Compatability The in-game canon reason for Ore being so expensive? It is no longer available on Kerbin (with your available drills). You can't sit on the launchpad, or the Shore, or Grasslands, or anywhere to mine Ore for instant recovery and Funds. With The Gold Standard mod, Ore is reduced to 5 Funds per unit as The Gold Standard has Gold, GoldOre, and Unobtanium located around the solar system for you to mine and return to kerbin for Funds. https://spacedock.info/mod/963 With Simplex Resources, RareOre is more valuable, NaturalOre less so, but you ship mine both for profit. https://spacedock.info/mod/2045 With Kerbalism (not required) reliability upgrades cost nothing. What will come next? Pretty much done. Happy to take suggestions. ANGLECAN Progression Plus This addon mod adds fuel costs. LiquidFuel, Oxidizer, SolidFuel, MonoPropellant, Xenon. Also for some SIMPLEX Resources, and Kerbalism Simplex. You will want to limit rocket launches and make them more efficient so that you can get to mining Ores. Not compatible, in keeping with the spirit of this mod Contract Configurator and various Contract Packs - I mean, probably not, but I thought you didn't want contracts? Thanks to @Gotmachine for assistance with B9PartSwitch shenanigans. Peace.
