KIS introduces new gameplay mechanics by adding a brand new inventory system and EVA usables items as tools. You want to build a rover on Duna from scratch? Or you've forgot to attach a solar panel to the planetary station? With KIS it's not a problem!
The mod offers container parts of various size to deliver spare parts to the orbit or at the construction site.
- Tiny containers for light-weight rockets.
- Big containers for serious projects.
- Mk3 containers for really big constructions ideas!
Kerbals now have own backpack to hold small items, and some of them can be equipped on the model. AR goggles? Fancy hat? Or, maybe, a completely new helmet?! It's all possible now!
With special tools (provided by the mod) kerbals now can modifying teh existing vessels by adding or removing parts. It's even possible to build a whole new vessel from scratch!
* Goggles, hats and helmets are provided by the third-party mods. E.g. "Kerbal Props".

- Easy Vessel Switch (EVS). No more guessing how to switch to "that vessel" - simply point and click!
- Surface Mounted Lights. Too dark for EVA on the other side of the moon? Problem solved with these ambient lights!
