ResearchBodies is a mod that adds the functionality of tracking bodies to explore them. When you start a new save, you have to choose a difficulty preset (that sets bodies that are shown from start) and costs values. First thing to do to go to the bodies is to track them using the TB-75M telescope. You have to target the object you want to find, right click on the telescope, click 'Research Bodies'. A simple UI appears, click on the button to track bodies in the zone you are pointing! Once you tracked this body, you'll see you can still not go to it : it's still unknown !
The second step is in the space center : click the Research Bodies button at the top right-hand corner. Note that your tracking station must be at level 2 or 3 in order to work (configurable, see below. In here Wernher von Kerman invites you to choose between the bodies you tracked with the telescope. When you click one, you can see on the right panel that you can launch a research plan. When you click it, it will spend funds. Then go through the research steps ! But keep an eye on your account ! It costs funds ! When the research state reaches 100%, you can finally go to this body and you earn science!
