Valentina let out a joyful yell. After hanging in the air for a second, the rover dropped back down onto the ground as it kept hurtling along at a breakneck speed. Its stabilizer gyros helped keep it upright. “It’s hard to believe that we drove the older model nearly six years ago on Duna,” she said. “This new Buffalo 2 is a dream to drive! It’s got that new rover smell, and it’s so much roomier than the old version.” “Rugged. Dependable. Reliable,” Bob read aloud from the brochure. There wasn’t much else to do while Valentina careened across the landscape, and it helped him avoid panicking. Mostly. “All new styling and new factory options let the Buffalo 2 Modular Space Exploration Vehicle meet your rover, base, station, and submersible needs,” he read aloud further. “It can be a station and a submarine? How,” Valentina asked. Bob read some more. “It says that you can configure modules to be fully cylindrical,” he summarized. “They have the same functional capabilities as the old Mark One Laboratory Extensions, but they use modernized ‘Omni’ converter technology. Add underbelly ballast tanks, some internal bracing upgrades, the new Guppy Submarine Module, and some engine and dive control components from SunkWorks, and the modules form the hull of a submarine.” “Wow,” Valentina responded. “We’ll definitely need that capability on Laythe…” The original Buffalo mod was created in 2015 and was included exclusively with Pathfinder before the public demanded a stand-alone mod. In the years since, Buffalo has been enjoyed by dozens of players. But much has changed since its initial release- technology improved, Kerbal Space Program 1 matured to completion, and my artistic know-how improved as well. When evaluating the original Buffalo mod for Restock compatibility, it became clear that it would be more effective to create a whole new mod than to update the original. Buffalo 2 offers much the same modular functionality as the original but with modernized plugins and Restock-compatible artwork. You can make rovers, bases, space stations and submarines (with SunkWorks installed). And with Sandcastle, you can 3D print the parts and assemble them with the stock EVA Construction. Buffalo 2 optionally supports EVA Repairs, Sandcastle, Snacks, Sunk Works, Wild Blue Tools, and more.
