SimpleSurvival is a Kerbal Space Program mod which adds a simple life support mechanic with the goal of encouraging roleplaying in the following ways:

  • Give purpose to different command modules. (A Mk1 capsule can get to orbit, but can it go to the Mun?)
  • Require the Hitchhiker's module for long journeys. No trips to Eeloo in a Mk1 capsule!
  • Make Engineers more useful. Only they can operate the Converter!
  • Create persistent resources for the Kerbals' EVA suits.

SimpleSurvival adds life support resources to all relevant stock parts, including the expansions. It also modifies the Advanced Exploration node in the tech tree. Therefore, compatibility with other mods that modify the tech tree should not be assumed.

Command modules that have been modded into the game will not have functional life support, although a means of dynamically adding life support to addon parts will be investigated in the future.
