This mod is intended to recreate, visually and functionally, the Endurance spacecraft from the movie 'Interstellar.' It implements parts to construct the Endurance ring, with highly efficient magnetoplasma engines and a modular design that allows for multiple configurations of the ship to your mission requirements.
Construct the ring in the VAB and launch it to LKO, before docking advanced Ranger and Lander vehicles to it. Both the Ranger and Lander act as SSTOs and feature detailed, Raster Prop Monitor integrated IVAs.
This is a continuation (re-build and fix for KSP 1.0.5) of the original version by BenJee10 on the KSP forums (old link). AS the mod was severely broken by KSP 1.0.5 enforcement of convex colliders Benjee10 did not have the time to re-build the mod. Benjee10 has given me his blessing to continue his mod for him. All Credit for the original version go to BenJee10 and his team. As this is a continuation the license remains:
LICENSE: CC BY-NC 4.0
