years of hiatus / looking for mod(s) (solved)

Hi there
as the title. years have gone by and I am back to Kerbal. 
of course, mods have to be updated, reinstalled etc etc.

1. so I am looking for a mod I used in the past: it let me set up launch details, like angle, turn grade etc etc.  and target altitude.  and then id did the rest automatically (use staging, throttle mgt etc)
If I also remember it wasnt available in early stages of career, so you had to unlock these features first.

I for the life of me cannot remember which one that was 

EDIT: answered and very happy

MECHJEB2, GRAVITY TURN

2. I am also looking for extensions to KSP stock contracts. 
more of them. not necessarily harder ones. I am not interested in plane contracts of sorts. 
would also be cool if contracts would match current tech / research level as this seems to be a slight mismatch in terms of feasability and contract payoff. 

EDIT: answered and very happy
ContractConfigurator, ContractPacks, still working 

EDIT
3.
I used to run a mod that had several typs of scanners for probes and satellites. I specifically remember one part that look like a small grill. it could extend and form a grill like, round curve. it looked awesome. I do not remember what it was used for, but it made satellites look really cool. 

Scansat


thank you in advance
good to be back

For extending contracts, you'ld want:

Contract Packs

Besides mine,

Kerbin Side Remastered - The Life Aquatic
Kerbin Side Remastered GAP

I like these as replacements for some of the stock contracts.

Contract Pack: Sounding Rockets  (needs the Sounding Rockets! part pack)
Career Evolution
Contract Pack: Research Advancement Division
Contract Pack: Field Research
Contract Pack: Tourism Plus
Contract Pack: Giving Aircraft a Purpose (GAP)
 (still a classic!)
Contract Pack: Grand Tours
Contract Pack: Rover Missions
Contract Pack: Unmanned Contracts

and for added fun I really like

 Strategia

I typically disable all stock contracts except for those related to deployed science, asteroids and comets.

ah I remembered mechjeb, didn´t remember that it has the launch stuff in it as well. thanks


as to the contract packs: I read that in the forums but it seems all are outdated ? they seem to listed for versions WAY older than 1.12.
do they still work ?
