Lets you change the default orientation of the VAB so that your ships face east or west by default, rather than north.
Includes per-game settings so that you can still pick north, if you like.
I always, always make my ships face eastward in the VAB. That's because I always launch east, and I like to do that by pitching down (using the navball for navigation).
Unfortunately, KSP has chosen to make north the default, which I hate; it means if I use the default orientation, I'd have to launch by yawing right, which to me is just unnatural and wrong. So, every single time I create a ship, I have to go and manually rotate the root part, which is a pain.
This app solves the problem by letting the user pick which orientation they like for their game.
Unzip the contents of "GameData" to your GameData folder, same as with most mods.
Just install it and it automatically sets your default orientation to "east". No UI, no special steps required. Ta dah! Your ships will be built facing east, like this:
However, if you prefer something other than east, for a particular saved game, it's present in the difficulty options dialog for the game (available either in the main menu settings, or on the settings menu in-game).
The available choices are "West", "North", and "East"; it defaults to "East". Just pick whichever you like.
