Utility Weight

Want to create a rocket family and need some standard masses as payloads?

Utility Weight is a part that allows to set mass, using 2 new "resources": kilograms and tons:
switch to a number mode in the PAW using the # button and set any value below 500000t.

Alternatively, you could use Variants for switching masses, Variants are limited to 1t, 2t, 5t, 10t, 20t, 50t, ..., 5000t,
but it is quicker as you don't have to switch to number mode and write digits.

For convenience, the payload has build-in modules for commanding a rocket, and you can disable them by removing
UtilityWeight\Patches\9_patchHelpfulModules.cfg

Recommends: B9PartSwitch
Optional B9PartSwitch patch provide another two switchers for size and cost.

The model of the part is by Nuke

Alternative: NRAP

Difference from the NRAP - Procedural Test Weights:
+ Utility Weight is a dll-less mod and switches mass by few click less
