[1.12.x] Mk2 Expansion v1.9.1 [update 10/5/21]

Recommended Posts

Version 1.9



This is a parts pack intended to flesh out the stock mk2 parts lineup by providing new engines, air intakes, and fuselage segments and cockpits in the mk2 formfactor, to give players more options when building spaceplanes and more. All textures are stock textures where possible, using MODEL nodes, so RAM footprint should be minimal.

This mod is also CKAN indexed

Kottabos review: (From Version 1.0)


Album a/BHXmt will appear when post is submitted




This mod comes with Module Manager compatibility/interoperability patches for a number of mods.

  • Connected Living Space
  • Kerbal Atomics
  • RasterPropMonitor
  • ASET IVA props
  • Tweakscale
  • USI Life Support
  • Deadly ReEntry
  • ExtraPlanetary launchpads
  • Ferram Aerospace Research
  • Modular Fuel Tanks
  • Near Future Electrical
  • Community Tech Tree
  • Modular Fuel Tanks
  • Modular Kolony Systems
  • RealPlume-Stock
  • WindowShine
  • System Heat


  • Why won't the game load? KSP crashes when trying to load M2 Expansion parts?
    • Make sure you install the required dependencies, B9 PartSwitch and Community Resource Pack. Both are included with Mk2Expansion in the download. Because M2X uses resources from CRP, KSP will not load if it is missing from your Kerbal Space Program/GameData director
  • How can I configure the Mk2 lab to seat 4 kerbals?
    • install the Extras/Mk2Expansion/patches/4Seatlab MM patch.
  • How do I get the banshee Fans to use Electric Charge or LF/Air?
    • install one of the alternate fuel configs in Extras/Mk2Expansion/Patches/ - either M2X_AirBreathingBanshee (will no longer work on Eve/Duna/Jool) or M2X_ElectricBanshee.
  • How do I use the Hyperblast Scramjet?

    • You can find a tutorial on how to use the scramjet here:

I'm dying to build mk2 vtols with hinges that have open engine mounts. There is a part pack that has nice mk2 vtol stuff, but I want to throw rapiers on it and take it to space!

Thanks, everyone!

I want these parts, but I use Ven's Stock Revamp.

They should work? has ven's revamp started replacing mk2 textures yet?

If it hasnt, then it should work with out any changes needed.

Klockheed Martain Gimbal plugin and the KineTechAnimation plugin are not maintained anymore and rather old, do they work ok in 1.0.2?

As I understand it, the KM plugin was taken over by Sariban, and Kinetech is updated by the B9 guys. To answer your question, they work in 1.02, or at least, they work for me. Thread: does anyone have any problems with the plugins not working?

@Errol: VTOL engines, you say...?

2378 kn? That..that seems high. Odd, since the config for that engine is basically a slightly buffed RAPIER

Yup, it's not just a graphical error either - I finished that plane, pointed up and went. I think the top thrust I got was about 1500kn before my plane exploded from overheating and crashed KSP :P

I had a look at the tangents in the cfg and they at least exist - did you check them with floatCurve Editor? More info here

The new cockpit, amazing though it may be, is also.... Offset.

The attachment node is a smidge too high.

That is a WIP cockpit that shouldn't have been included. Oops. Sneak peek at future cockpit?

I installed it as usual, but none of your parts are showing up? Where did I go wrong? Does the Parts folder in your GameData folder go into the main folder, instead?

Forgot a folder in my rush to get new the version out. Apologies for the inconvenience.

Thanks for the quick response! Parts are showing up now, I thought perhaps it was just me messing up the install previously. But now they're coming in times two, doubled, cloned parts. I can't find any differences between the two, but it seems like every part is doubled? I did a clean reinstall as well, to be sure. Am I doing something else wrong, now?

This doesn't effect usability so far, which seems fine. I just really wanted to try out your wonderful parts!
