Outdated Mod

This mod is not known to work with the latest version of Kerbal Space Program. Proceed with caution.

Science Revisited was created by CaptRobau as a rebalance of the stock science system. Science Revisited Revisited builds upon their original work.

Science Revisited Revisited aims to be a lightweight and modular rebalance of the stock science system. These adjustments aim to make science gameplay more dynamic, while preserving the stock gameplay feel.

The work is built entirely through Module Manager patches. The edits it makes are also completely modular in nature. This allows users to pick and choose the changes they want to apply.

Patches Included:

  • Revised Crew Versus EVA Reports: Switches low space and flying crew reports to make them biome-dependant, while making the same EVA reports biome independant. No more hanging off the sides of cockpits to get that "flying at kerbin's mountains" data or EVAing every two minutes in low munar orbit. Somehow this makes more sense.
  • Reduced Transmission Penalty on Data: Science that is simple data is much more effectively transmitted. Recovering the instruments is still mildly helpful. Temperature, gravity, barometer, accelerometer, and atmospheric data are currently affected
  • Increased Transmission Penalty on Experiments: Significantly nerfs the already low transmission rates for materials studies and mystery goo.
  • Increased Transmission Penalty on Surface Samples: Significantly nerfs the transmission value of Surface Samples. Compliments the experiment nerfs patch discussed above.
  • Science Lab Rebalance: Increases the Science Lab's weight to a more volume appropriate 5 tons. Increases lab's data and science storage. Rebalances several mod-added labs similarly.
  • Probe Telemetry Science: Adds a very low value experiment to all command modules. This data is representative of the telemetry data needed to pilot the vessel.
  • Microgravity Experiment: Replaces the hitchhiker's stock crew report with a new, slightly more valuable "Micro-Gravity" Experiment. Good flavor. Also adds the experiment to a couple mod added habitats.

Plays Well With Friends

There is built in support for Roverdude's USI mod constellation, Kerbal Planetary Base Systems, Dmagic Orbital Science, and Nertea's Near Future Solar & Stockalike Station Parts Expansion. In addition, most ballance patches are automatically applied to all relevant parts. (A mod doesn't have to be listed here to be compatible; this is simply a list of mods that Science Revisited is explicitly aware of.)

There is one suspect incompatibility at this time: Station Science 2.0. See thread post 61 (page 3 by default) for more information and a potential fix. Please report any further incompatibilities either at a balancing or at a functional level.
