Have you ever thought "ROVEMATE Y U USELESS!?". You have? Good,you came to the right place! I had a thought popup into my head "Rovemates are so useless by themselves. Why not make better ones?". I did just that.

You can now have Liquid fuel and Oxidizer in your rovemates! Want to jump the VAB? Sure!

Want to use a rover for docking? Pfft who doesn't?!

Don't like solar panels? Want kerbals to cook eggs on your rover? Go with ThermoElectric rovers!

v1.5 Has brought you larger Rovermates! Meet Bertha aka Flatter Probodobodyne RoveMate

Default Size SAS Rovemate? Lets roll, litterally

Wanna drill Kethane and store it in your rover?

KAS Storage in a rover!? Be lazy and carry stuff in your rover!

Always wanted to rove and convert Kethane?

TacLifeSupport Rovemates!

More attachment nodes!


In v1.3+ all Better RoveMate bodies have probe control. No need for those pesky probe bodies!
v1.5 Brings Probe control and more electricity to the stock RoveMate!

v1.7.5 brings side nodes for all the rovemates for better attachment!

I did my best to try to balance the mass and the amount of resources in them. If you want me to change something,tell me!
