List all Railgun Launch-Assist Mods Here!

I've come across *several* rail-gun mods on the KSP Forums over the year-plus I've been playing this game (since July 2013), but unfortunately I can't seem to find any of them again now that I want to set one of them up on the Mun or Minmus as part of a reusable ISRU infrastructure, and on Kerbin to benefit from the reduced Delta-V costs... (and in both cases, to see how awesome real-life plans for magnetic launch-assist systems would be)

I invite players to list all the rail-gun mods they can find on the forums here.

EDIT: Going back I was able to find *ONE* of the magnetic-accelerator/rail-gun containing mods I stumbled across earlier: although I can't seem to find a release link for it anywhere on the [WIP] thread...

EDIT #2: Found the most recent release of the Stanford Torus mod (which includes a mass accelerator) on CurseForge. Apparently the forum thread just hasn't been updated in quite a while, but the mod author has continued updating on Curse...

I remember there was a Kerbtown mass-driver a little while back, but probably doesn't work anymore. Heck I'd love to have railguns in this game (I think it was the first thing I ever suggested) and I even tried making a mod for one at one point. I don't think there currently is a mod for one though.

Well apparently there's at least ONE mod (see Edit #2), but I do remember there being quite a few more out there- so keep your eyes out for them...

Thought I'd revive this thread after all this time to announce that I ended up forking the Mass Driver parts from the Stanford Torus mod (which was last updated for 0.25), and will be doing my best to keep them maintained for future versions of KSP. They currently work on 0.90, but I'm hoping to get help from other players in maintaining the mod so that I have somebody with the expertise for bug-fixing or a re-compile for a newer version of KSP by the time either becomes necessary (I know how to do neither).

With luck, this post will also attract a few people to give the pre-release (linked in my signature) a try. :)

Regards,

Northstar

This thread is quite old. Please consider starting a new thread rather than reviving this one.
