Part & Science rebalancing - SETI-BalanceMod

  • Action groups available from the start, fixed cosmonaut costs, higher contract limit (needs CustomBarnKit)

  • Some part rebalancing to fit the probes first progression eg rebalanced RemoteTech dishes, probe core rebalances

  • New Parts and textures, mainly by LordAurelius (HRB, SurfaceSampler) and SwGustav (Procedural Textures) + procedural probe core and lightweight airplane cockpit

  • Simple science experiments (eg thermometer) can be transmitted for 100%, recovery yields 100% for all experiments

  • MaterialsBay and MysteryGoo can not be collected for balancing reasons, but can be reset by scientists (for multi-use, if you transmit)

  • MaterialsBay and MysteryGoo have different masses, sizes and science payouts, use the StationScience Cyclotron, if you want to transmit for 100%

  • Fuel tank & SRB rebalancing along the lines of procedural parts

  • Some other rebalances, eg more EC storage in command parts

Version for Kerbal Space Program 1.3.0

Released on 2017-06-30

New SETI-MetaModPack (available via CKAN) mini mod is new fulcrum of SETI-meta-mod-pack

  • Recommendations and suggestions for the meta mod pack are shifted from SETIrebalance to SETI-MetaModPack
  • General 70% science nerf is shifted from SETIrebalance to SETIcareerChallenge
  • This makes SETIrebalance more compatible with other settings, eg other techtrees and science mode


  • Stock dishes rebalanced for RemoteTech
  • UniversalStorage Alkaline Fuel Cell now consumes twice the resources for same EC output
  • Thus it only has internal storage for 6 hours at full capacity (same goes for SETIprobeParts AFC)
  • Standard squad fuel cell lighter and produces 3kW instead of 1.5kW
  • Fuel Cell fill amount set to 10%, to make them more useful for backup purposes
  • Spaceplane cockpits have monoprop by default again
  • Some Command pod rebalances, mostly adding monoprop
  • Swept wing mass lowered a lot to be comparable to other wings
  • Minor Cost rebalances


  • VenStockRevamp Oscar A Fuel tank stats fixed to be half of Oscar B
  • Adjustments for recent NFSpacecraft part name changes

Another update of recommendations/suggestions

  • Eg mods for which a continued version exists like K2pod
  • Removed some of the visual mods, only real plume and planetshine left
  • Just can not keep track of their compatibilities, I simply install SVE and SVT in addition


  • US Science Bay mass reduced to 20kg, batteries included
  • K2pod and some NFSpacecraft costs adjusted
  • Some newer VenStockRevamp parts adjusted

Science experiment rewards set to 70%

  • If that upsets your existing savegame balance, please go to SETIrebalance/SETI-ScienceSettings.cfg
  • And then delete lines 37 - 41, or set an experiment reward factor you prefer
  • You could also adjust the "ScienceGainMultiplier" in the persistent.sfs of your savegame to compensate
  • This is somewhat offset by adding in science returns for SETIcontracts in the parallel update

Entry Costs are now set to 3*costs (SETI-GeneralSettings.cfg lines 70-85), except for fuel tanks

Porkjets new Mk1 pod somewhat rebalanced, other parts still not touched...

RoverBody holds 600 EC instead of 120

Version for Kerbal Space Program 1.1.3

Released on 2016-07-15


  • Oscar B dry mass reduced to 12.5kg from 25kg
  • Stock parachute masses and costs are now related to their deployed diameter (...)
  • eg 41m Mk2-R 50kg heavier, everything else (much) lighter, along RealChute masses & costs

RemoteTech dish size changes

  • KR-14 and CommTech-1 smaller, they now fit within 2.4m
  • Thus they can be narrowly protected by 2.5m heat shields, if the craft accurately holds retrograde

Situation and biome mask rebalancing, inspired by Kerbalism mod

  • EVA report not available while flying low
  • So no reason to do an EVA report while standing on the ladder of a landed craft
  • But still possible to do a "kerbal" daredevil stunt while dipping into Jool's upper atmosphere...

RemoteTech antenna and dish rebalancing

  • In order to better align with OPM, NewHorizons, gameplay and realism

MysteryGoo and MaterialsBay collectibility externalized

  • New separate mini mod "SETIrebalanceMaterialsGoo available
  • Thus it can be used with UnmannedBeforeManned
  • Should reduce the in-thread questions from people who do not read mod descriptions/warnings in red

Special compatibility with Unmanned Before Manned

  • Mystery goo and materials bay are collectible when UbM is installed
  • MechJeb and Kerbal Engineer parts are not hidden when UbM is installed
  • Though they are still not necessary, just to avoid questions if someone misses them...

Probe Core compatibility

  • Early probe cores have SAS based on installed mods
  • Nothing changes for SETIctt, but for UbM and in case neither is installed

Rudimentary compatibility with FASA

  • Mainly concerning early pods and probes
  • Though the early probes still have reaction wheels if UbM is installed
