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 and Breaking Ground aresupported.
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.
Special nodes appear for upgrades such as in Kerbalism or SIMPLEX Propulsion.
Requires Module Manager (not included).

Tree Branches and Strands
* Atmospheric Propulsion * Rocket Propulsion leading to Small Propulsion
* Power generation and storage Stability Controls (SAS, RCS etc) leading to Small Propulsion * Probes and Communication leading to ISRUAerodynamics (wings, cones)
* Flight Stablity leading to Actuators and ISRU * Construction, docking, legs and wheels etc.
* Tank storage * Wings, payload bays, fairings etc.
* Landing leading to on location science * Command pods
