Information Changelog Stats

Command Pod, roughly same size as Mk1; will work on IVA when I get my hands on the new PartTools. Now has data transmitter built-in. Two variants depending on other active mods.

  • KAS: adds front mounted winch unit w 30 meter cable.
  • SCANSat: adds small SCANSat network uplink unit w/ BTDT scanner and MapTraq modules.
  • FStextureSwitch2 for some visual customization options

Advanced Drone Unit, derived from the Command Pod. Crew space converted to service bay. More EC and Mono capacity. Integrated RCS thrusters. One variant available

  • RemoteTech: Service bay removed. Adds 500km passive Omni antenna and 9Mm directional antenna, should allow comfortable operation within Kerbin SOI. Increased EC and Mono capacity. Integral RTG will prevent complete loss of control from lack of EC; but will require periodic recharge with additional power sources.

  • FStextureSwitch2 for some visual customization options

Grappler unit, very handy for moving things around when you don't have a docking port. Moderate EC capacity and LF/OX or Mono fuel options. Modular Fuel Tank configs via MM * FStextureSwitch2 for some visual customization options

Radial NV engine, burns LF/OX or Mono. Reversible thrust. Full extension to around 2m, a tad shorter than the FT400 fuel tank. can give you that extra clearance you need when hauling large objects. Keep Kerbals away from moving parts. Fixed reverse thrust. added thrust Gimbal. KSPI-E Config included

Carrier Adaptor, Grabber Unit with carrying capacity for up to 4 Helper Drones.

Push Adaptor, retained for the time being. Service bay instead of docking bays for for Helper Drones.
