Kerbal Planetary Base Systems

Have you ever said "I don't want to live on this planet anymore"? Now you can! We at Kerman & Kerman
Orbit and SurfaceStructures are proud to present you the all new product line for Kerbals who want
nothing more than to live on another planet! We at Kerman & Kerman finally got out of the testing phase
and now consider our parts to be usable.

This mod adds several new parts that are designed to be used in a planetery base for the Kerbals.This
includes Habitats, Greenhouse, Laboratory, a Cupola derivative, Command-Center and others. It is
designed to fit with the other stock parts and feel as "Kerbal" as possible.

Looking for help:

If anyone is interested to translate KPBS into Japanese or finish Brazilian Portuguese,
please let me know! :)

You can find all the texts that need translation here: KPBS Texts. (5916 Words)

Important: Please contact me before you start with the translation. It already happend more than once that multiple
persons worked on a translation for the same texts and therefore their efforts were in vain.


To install, simply copy the gamedata folder into your Kerbal Space Program folder.
When you already have another version of this mod installed, delete this folder first.
