Rover Mods...


Recommended Posts

Hey, fellow KSP'ers!

I'm looking for mods that add parts based on IRL landers and rovers. More specifically, unmanned rovers and landers. I have a few installed, but none of them have things like a proper Mast or the wheels that rovers like Perseverance and Curiosity used. I don't know if such mods exist that are up to date and I've done some basic google searching but I mainly get posts from 2016 or links to threads that no longer exist.

I'd also would love to know if there's a working or up to date mod that uses airbags as a method of landing, like Pathfinder, Spirit and Opportunity. I also could have very easily missed or overlooked any mods/modpacks that provide these.

Thanks for help, friends!

I know of a few mods that could help, but it might be a bit of a stretch.

As far as I know of, there are only two mods that have airbags/floats/anything like that. 

USI survivability pack has some nice floats and airbags - albeit, they are a bit dated, but they all work fine. It's now packaged in USI Exploration pack, but you can remove the other parts easily enough.

 

Comfortable landing is mostly for capsules and the likes, but it has a standalone airbag part that might be useful.

 

Happy Roving!
