NEW : this mod on official KSP 'modding monday'  

 

rocket factory on ksp-forum

 

 

main focus of  'Rocket Factory'

This pack will provide to extend and facility the KSP Stock parts.

Especialy made to make it easier and incerase the initial Carreer history for Kerbal Rookies

-In addition, an extension Stock-share.  the parts have mainly focus on playability and memory saving and

hold memory footprint as low as possible – therefore some parts comes with non high Res. textures.

 

 

detail description

actually, the MOD is meant to supplement the squad-stock. It has many pods of bootlegs to 3.75m diameter. All inclusive with IVAs.

Additional engines especially easy and a lot of power. (a bit oversized) - especially lateral thrusters (LAE series) with sufficient force in the selection both monopropellant as well LiquidFuel version.
The same applies to controll-truster, there monopropellant as well LiquidFuel version.

3 fuel tank types - built thin ideal to serve as pedestal to serve for Lander. Structural it has mainly complementary thin built decoupler.

Additionally, I have a booster with extra tank with a really lot of power in the range that allows the beginning of the game quickly to reach points and archive missions.

In the Gamma series I've built a complete complementary 2m diameter setup. (yes 2m and not 1.85m). 

[more conceptual motivation you see this on page 6 of the threads.]

These mods take many man hours to complete, and many of us are working professionals who do this on the side as well as work full time jobs.

Some of us do it because they love KSP, Personally I would love to quit my job and just make rocket parts all day, but work pays the bills.

So if someone wants to send me some money to make it a little easier to stay up lane one night to build ksp mods, this would be very very happy !

 Thanks in advance !
