Petal Adapter demo:
How to correctly use the legacy, FAR compatible payload fairings included in extras folder of this mod:
KW Rocketry is the premiere launch vehicle parts pack created by Kickasskyle and Winston. KW Rocketry was originally produced as a pack meant to add more parts with realistic balance to KSP, with a focus on VAB built vehicles. KSP has been widely used, however, for everything from fuel stations to shuttles and has seen many fan built craft posted on the KSP official forums.
How to install:
Firstly, Insure any older version of KW has been removed. (GameData/KWRocketry)
Now, for a normal install simply unpack the GameData folder included in the download
>> MERGING << the folders when prompted. This should be all you are required to do
for a basic install.
—-NON AUTO SHROUD CONFIGS—-
For non-automatic engine shrouds you have to extract the GameData folder contained
within the Extras/NoAutoShroudConfigs folder after having previously installed
KW Rocketry as above.You should merge and overwrite the parts files when prompted
and this should mean your engines no long have automatic shrouds.
—-REDUCED CLAMP SOUNDS—-
Reduced Clamp sound installation is similar to that above, extract the GameData
folder from within Extras/ReduceClampSounds.
To install the subassemblies, simply extract the folder labelled Subassemblies located
within the Extras folder into your KSP save folder of choice, for example:
