This mod reimplements the old parts. For all your Nostalgic needs! The mod used to use multiple configs, but now it simply combines all the parts into one folder and restores the old versions of every removed or modified part. Currently parts from 0.13.3 are restored, and everything nerfed/changed in 1.3, 1.4, 1.5, 1.6, and 1.7 has a classic version too! Version 0.7.3 and below of the mod have two configs, one reimplements the old parts from 0.13.3, with some minor balance changes, and the other reimplements the 1.3.1 parts which were replaced, modified, nerfed or removed in 1.4. To install, just choose which config you want, and extract that config's .zip file into your GameData directory.
Version 0.9.0, "The Great Reorganization", has just come out, and has improved the way the parts are stored, named, and sorted, and everything has Tech Tree integration now. Many parts have even been moved into a different category too, matching their modern equivilants better. Unfortunately, some parts (the plane cockpits) have temporarily been removed, until I can post the massive 0.10 update, which is going to include every Classic part between 0.17 and 1.1, along with a bugfix patch, which will take a couple of days. If you really need these parts, stick to 0.8.2 as it is still fully functional in 1.7, although it won't include Classic editions of the 1.7 parts. 0.9.1 has come out now, and fixes some bugs, but the massive 0.10 update isn't out yet.
When this next update is done, my mod is going to fully supersede Kerbal Historical Institute, as I'll be able to reimplement every part from that long-abandoned mod. Although I have acquired a version of 0.17, after nearly 5 years, which is what is going to allow me to add so many parts next update, I still need to acquire 0.16, 0.15, and 0.14 to complete my classic KSP version collection. If anyone has these versions, or knows where I can get them, please message me either on the forums, @TriggeredSnake, or on reddit at /u/TriggeredSnake, as you will be a great help to both OldPartsRedux and my personal collection. Anyone who finds me an old version will get their name in included into OldPartsRedux somewhere to credit them. (if they want.)
There's an issue with the Classic RCS thrusters, they fire way too much exhaust and in the opposite direction. This issue has persisted since some very early versions of OldPartsRedux, and I'm still not entirely sure how to fix it, but I think I can manage it now.
Not every part is in the correct tech-tree location or editor category yet.
Most of these bugs will be fixed in a patch tomorrow. The reason for the abnormal amount is the complete recode, much like when KSP was rewritten and ported to Unity 5, a rewrite brings loads of new bugs.

A small update, fixes some bugs and removes some broken parts that were somewhat unnecessary and aren't easily fixable right now.
I'm considering splitting the mod into a few separate mods, each focusing on specific parts. I feel like this mod has almost become too large and varied, my original plan was just to add the old rocket parts from 0.7.3 through to 0.25, but as the developers continued nerfing and changing parts I used this mod as a place to add older versions for them. I expect if I do go through with this I'll split OldPartsRedux up, keeping OldPartsRedux as just the rocket parts like I originally planned, and creating a pack containing the old plane parts split into categories, as well as a mod for reimplementing the pre-redesign parts since 1.0. I might also try making a separate mod to un-nerf the RCS tanks and Xenon gas, right now those parts are in OldPartsRedux too but they're visually the same as the newer ones.
Categories: Right now OldPartsRedux's parts are just added into the base game's part lists and it makes them feel quite bloated, so I'm considering adding further categories containing the parts split into versions, e.g. Selecting 0.13.3 would give the parts from that version. Alternatively, I might make separate categories based off the rough era,, e.g. Retro: 0.7.3-0.15, Nostalgic: 0.16-0.21.

Version 0.11.1 is here with a few new parts, and a bunch of bugfixes. There are a few bugs still that I'm aware of, but I felt a new version was needed and I'm on the way to fixing some of the issues.
Released on 2021-04-10
I want to explain some things with this update, such as the reason why I haven't worked on this mod in over a year, and why the changelog for the last update is incorrect. I was working on a huge update which would add all of the parts from old versions, however during the end of it's development my hard drive developed an issue that corrupted many of my old versions, putting a stop to the mod until I could fix it and recover most of them, but before I resumed working on the mod I got a new PC which has had major technical issues causing KSP to crash every 2 minutes until a while ago when I managed to fix them. This prevented me from continuing the mod. Unfortunately, after I fixed the computer my hard drive containing all the old versions went missing until I found it yesterday, so I was further delayed. Confusingly, the last update to OldPartsRedux claimed to add all the parts from 0.15 onwards, but this is incorrect, that was the original plan for that update but I published it early as I knew I wouldn't be able to continue it for a long time, with it roughly half finished. I thought I'd written a different changelog, but somehow the wrong one still got used, so just to clear up the confusion,
At this point, OldPartsRedux contains classic versions of all rocket parts changed since 0.20, and classic versions of some parts earlier than that but not all of them. OldPartsRedux also includes a few Spaceplane parts, but not most of them.

Version 0.10.0, The Great Success brings forth an extreme amount of new parts! Classic versions exist of every part that has ever been changed in Kerbal Space Program's history between 0.16 and 1.8.1! Spaceplane parts are unfortunately the exception, and most parts lack classic versions, simply because there is almost no documentation on which parts changed and when. When I can find the documentation, I will add classic versions. With this update, Old Parts Redux achieves the majority of it's original goal to allow you to use classic parts in modern KSP!

0.9.1 is fully compatible with 1.7.2, but I'm posting this as a 1.7.1 mod because that's the version I'm stuck with until Kopernicus updates.
The RT-5 (1.4) now loads the correct texture and loads properly.
The RT-10 (0.13.3) is now correctly named the RT-10 (0.7.3) and no longer conflicts. I will be adding a 0.13.3 version when I can update the 0.13.3 model to be modern KSP compatible.
The LV-T45 (0.13.3) has been properly named in its file, and now loads correctly without conflict.
The LV-T30 (0.13.3) is now named correctly.
Some parts have had their categories and tech tree positions fixed.

The attachment nodes are now fixed.
The textures on the Advanced Nose Cones A & B are now fixed.
Some of the cockpits had their names switched, I've now fixed them.
Improved Tech-tree Integration:
For some reason, when I started making this mod I avoided tech-tree integration, but since then I've changed that.
The LV-T45 Classic, the LV-T30 Classic, The FL-T500 Classic, and the RT-10 SRB Classic have all been integrated into the tech tree.
Released on 2019-01-04
Removed duplicated parts.
Added classic versions on every part nerfed or changed in 1.6.
Possibly fixed the glitchy nodes on one of the cockpits.
Updated 1.6, although the mod should work on any post 1.0 version.
Changed names of some really old parts as the more modern version has now been replaced.
Special thanks to KottabosGames for featuring OldPartsRedux!
Credit goes to the creators of KHI for some of the models I used for the ancient parts.
If you are running an older version, as many of you are, please update to the latest version for the most up to date experience. Of course, if you just want to basic 0.13.3 parts restoration than this isn't necessary, but for everyone else, you should probably update.
Also please follow OldPartsRedux to get updated whenever a new version comes out!
Released on 2018-11-04
The latest version of OldPartsRedux includes:
Next update should include all the pre-1.0 plane parts, and all the pre-0.25 plane parts. Additionally, after I find a version of 0.14, 0.15, and 0.17, I'll be adding parts from those versions.
Released on 2018-05-10
Now correctly recognizes that it will work with 1.4.3.
Now compatible with AVC! (Hopefully.)
Fixed a bug with AVC. (Hopefully.)
Added a combined config, which remimplents both the 1.3 parts that got nerfed in 1.4, and the parts from 0.13.3. This config is useful to anyone who wants both sets of parts, as by default the 2 separate configs don't work together.
Now fully compatible with any 1.4 version! [1.4.x]

Initial release, if I remember rightly.
Just added the 0.13.3 parts, and did a pretty bad job of it. There were quite a few bugs, most of which I fixed in 6.4 but didn’t mention. I even got the .version file url wrong as the mod was originally created using CrowdSourcedScience’s .version file as I happened to have a copy of that on my desktop and needed something to copy the syntax from.
