Outdated Mod

This mod is not known to work with the latest version of Kerbal Space Program. Proceed with caution.

Information Changelog Stats

Simplex Techtree is divided into five branches, each with two strands.

All nodes are based on Stock, and around half the parts have been moved for balance. Making History is supported.

It is possible to play un-crewed before crewed!

This mod includes also includes a separate engine reconfigure to make it a little more difficult to launch from Kerbin (and any atmosphere). This cfg file that can be removed, keeping the TechTree intact (SIMPLEXEngines.cfg). The purpose of this minor reconfigure with engine parts is to make it more likely to need a two or three stage rocket to achieve orbit. Vacuum thrust and ISP have not been adjusted, so all craft designed for vacuum will not be affected.

Requires Module Manager (not included).

Version 1.7.1.20190111 for Kerbal Space Program 1.6.1

Released on 2019-01-11

Changelog for 1.7.1.20190111

Effectively a hotfix becasue SIMPLEXResources and SIMPLEXLiving got accidentally added in 1.7.

This would have caused ISRU Ore fun for people (Resources) but issues for Scientists who would not have been able to reset ScienceJr and also Goo. Now resolved.

If you are updating from 1.7 for a current save it will affect resources (Ore). I recommend keeping the SIMPLEXResources folder in that case. Deleting SIMPLEXLiving will not affect anything but fix your problem with Scientists.
