Kerbal Stock Part eXpansion, KSP eXpansion, whatever floats your boat : P

NOTICE 2/21/13:

The development team has invited me to help work on bringing some more content into the game - you know... parts, basically.

So what does this mean for KSPX? Well, obviously it doesn't make much sense to be working on adding stock-style parts as an addon, while working on actual stock parts. So I don't have plans to continue updating here. Part of the reason I threw together 0.2.1 this weekend was so I can leave the parts already released in something of a more 'finished' state for you. On that note: I might throw together one more update for the pack with bug/config fixes, as I know those would be... irritating... to endure. (and maybe the few shaders that I missed).

Good news is, i'll be helping Nova with some of the workload, and part updates in the future should be a little beefier! And, sorry if I didn't get around to your suggestion in time... but it doesn't mean I've forgotten them! I'm amazed by the amount of interest this project brought in, and I won't leave that behind--you guys are full of great ideas, and the game is for you after all : )

0.2.1 is out now, get it here! (Bug reports very welcome!)

News/Links

Introduction

After having a lot of fun making a 2.5m NERVA engine, and learning the ropes of KSP part creation, I was looking to do some more! I love the look and feel of the stock parts (Kudos, NovaSilisko), but there were always some parts I wish were included in the game. Most mods out there don't really match the original style of KSP that well, or, for some missing parts, don't even exist. So, the idea for this pack came about. I decided I would stick to some rules:

  • Must be KSP styled - if it doesn't look like it was there to begin with, it's not good enough!
  • Stats and gameplay must fit smoothly with the stock feel.
  • Must be unique in some way, and fill in a niche that a stock part doesn't.
  • Doesn't matter if it's basically a resize - it still gets a new model!

I will ALWAYS be open to suggestions. The pack isn't set in stone, I will always be willing to stick good ideas onto the next update! And finally, below is a complete and (usually) up to date list on what the pack (and future updates) are going to include:

Release 1.0 (Coming soon)

2/3/13 - Version 0.1 (Barebones, few parts)

Awesome job with the resurrection of this thread! I'm very impressed that you managed to get the original forum post two! Awesome! Rep up for you!

Please note that the version on SpacePort is v0.2.0 and thus outdated.

Ah, that's the one I've been using until now (downloading the new as I type this). Any significant changes to look out for?

So has this been abandoned? I know we'll eventually see all these moved into the stock game at some point, but they need to be maintained in the meantime. If no-one else is doing it, I'd be happy to pick it up and keep it up-to-date.

I'll be releasing a 0.20 compatible version as soon as possible.

You dont need to do the cupola command pod as she went ahead and basically modifed her design and made it a stock part.

Several of the components have become stock parts. Not just cupola, but also the smaller lander can, the two remote guidance units (with new, spiffy models), and the "Atlas" rocket (renamed the "Skipper"). Might be others too, that's just what I've noticed so far...

That said, keeping the old ones in the pack but in 0.20 format might be a good idea for people who still have flights with the old components on. We can always manually delete the parts we don't need.

I just manually updated it all myself. Just needed to add a few lines in the cfg files.

Would you like to share with the rest of the class? I really want those quad couplers/adapters :D

Just add scale = 1.0 in all the parts CFG files. Example below.

// --- asset parameters ---

mesh = model.mu

scale = 1.0

rescaleFactor = 1.25

If you want to use the new file structure you will need to create a new folder in gamedata, possibly "KSPX". Make sure in that folder you add the KSPX parts folder in. Then you have to manually edit all the parts cfg again and add "PART {" to the very beginning and a "}" to the very end.

I suggest if you are not comfortable doing this, then just wait. It shouldn't be to long for this to get updated.

I would just post a repack, but I do not have permission too.

I haven't tested it, but it's been posted elsewhere.

in addition to rescaleFactor=1.25, you need to set scale=1 if I remember correctly.

Thanks for the info. Even if I mess it up, it will teach me something new about the game, trial and error, yadda yadda.

I don't get the new system, should i extract the "Parts" folder to the "Gamedata" folder?

Or should i extract the Parts folder to "Squad/Parts" folder?

On the cupola, the new one is a single seater and is about half the height. The KSPX is a 3-seater that is taller. Please don't drop this version, it's my favorite pod.

Why is ClairaLyrae's work attributed to "SQUAD" in the 0.20 release?
