! Important note !
Since KAS v0.5.4, KIS is no more mandatory (only highly recommended).

However by using KAS without KIS, take note that you will not be able to :

  • Attach/detach connectors from EVA
  • Store hooks in containers
  • Mount hooks on winches from EVA
  • Attach hooks from EVA
  • Attach ground pylon on the ground

To get all this features, you need to install KIS. You can download it here


KAS introduce new gameplay mechanics by adding winches, containers, dynamic struts/pipes and grabable & attachable parts. It gives some purpose to EVA and can be used for many things:

  • Resource transfer (winches or pipes)
  • Towing parts (winches)
  • Adding/removing parts on a vessel (grabbable & attachable parts)
  • Storing parts (containers)
  • Base/vessel interconnections (pipes)
  • Vessel consolidation (struts & pipes)
  • Grabbing parts (magnet)
  • Cranes (winches)
  • Airship anchoring (winches)
  • Skycranes (winches)
  • Elevators (winches)
  • ...and more
