Universal Storage 1.4.0.0 (For KSP 1.4.x) 13th March 2018

Recommended Posts

Just asking - are parts placed inside the empty storage sections meant to be shielded from drag while inside with doors closed? They’re not (in my testing, with minimal mods) but I’m honestly not sure what the intended behavior should be in this case

Nope - it's why we're making a revamp :wink:

Aero and drag occulsion came to the stock game well after Universal Storage was released, so our parts don't really have the code\capability to work as true service bays. It was going to be such a massive job to fix it, so we decided to redo everything instead.

I did not realize you guys were doing a full reboot.  How is that coming along?

I would like to suggest an improvement, for your consideration.

When I put water filter into the octo adapter, I noticed that all components looks kinda the same from outside. It would be nice if each part had a small unique decal (texture) on it, so that user can differentiate between those by just looking. I worked around it by just attaching radial water tank onto water purifier, etc.

This is one of my top mods, I just love it!  The reboot looks incredible!

Just curious, I see you have taller tanks for stacked cores.  Any chance there's going to be multi-core KIS containers?

Everything (barring the fuel cells and recyclers) will be meshswitchable up to 4x high, KIS parts included :)

Development's stopped on this mod in favor of Universal Storage's total revamp, but we're still looking into ways to properly ID parts that are hidden away.

Is there a thread for the revamp I'm not seeing, or is dev on the revamp suspended?

Also curious if it's possible to include support for Deep Freeze's glykerol in the revamp.

Thanks @DMagic

Explains why I couldn't find it, I was searching in the releases subforum.

Love the mod! Question though, is there any way to remove a particular module? I'm wanting to remove the science modules (ones with thermometer, etc) as my game is getting overly cluttered, but those ones don't seem to be listed in the parts folder, but are ingame...

If you're getting that cluttered, take a look at

Yes I do have that, that doesn't solve my issue. The parts in CTT are not unlocking at the same nodes as the normal versions, and thus are generating in contracts, which in turn clutters up my contracts with things i'm not really wanting to use at the moment either. Its a bit of a cascading effect really.

The science parts are from a different mod, DMagic Orbital science, which includes a bunch of US compatible parts.  If you want to remove them you'll have to go into that mod folder and delete them.

I am having a CTT tech tree problem with this mod and DMAGIC orbital science. The universal storage variant's of the tech aren't in the same node, or even branch of the tree. Like the Univ. GOREsat is in actuators, and the Univ. Orbital telescope is in specialized construction, when the normal telescope is in advanced exploration. Is this weird mismatch a bug? And is there a patch or fix?

I think that's actually something you need to bring up in that thread - the experiments are in that mod, not this one, IIRC.

The experiments for this mod are the reconfigured versions of that mod under a new part, so the contract node's setting would be under this mod, which needs to be set to match.

DMagic sets the tech tree nodes for his Universal Storage parts in his mod. They are his parts, they just don't happen to load unless you have US installed.

His reasoning behind node placement is that there are already too many parts in science nodes.

@Paul Kingtiger This looks like a really cool mod, but I am unfortunately unable to download it as SpaceDock doesn't seem to working right now. Is the OneDrive download up to date?

Edit: nvm, got it working

We haven't had any pictures in a while, so here are some craft I've been using to test the mod.  We have an Apollo CSM (fairing removed to show wedges) and a Apollo inspired single stage LEM.
