Stockalike parts pack for Kerbal Space Program

What is this mod?

BDB adds parts. Lots of parts. Just over 1000 parts, including launchers, spacecraft, and probes, all in a ReStockalike style. The focus lies primarily on the US space program up through the Apollo program, though some modern parts exist. They are not perfect replicas, but rather take inspiration directly from existing designs. Care has been taken to research and include pieces for projects that were proposed but never happened, to increase the possibilities available to the player. Parts are made in a lego frame of mind, and screenshots of your unique franken creations are always appreciated! The mod is not recommended for new players, as the mod adds a good deal of clutter to the VAB lists. The mod also adds new standard sizes (such a 0.9375m, 1.5m, 1.875m, 3.125m and 5.625m diameter) of parts in order to more accurately scale to KSP.

Now, 1000 parts sounds like it would kill your PC. While the mod certainly is large, the memory overhead is likely lower than you would expect. Care has been taken to ensure the mod is efficient, with methods such as enforcing a strict texel density (a technique I have only used since mid-2017, so the older assets might not be as efficient) and texture atlasing to cram several parts onto each texture sheet.

BDB makes heavy use of B9PartSwitch's advanced features including features such as

Texture and mesh switching
BDB's own custom fuel switcher to allow different fuel types in all tanks
Engine config switching which can include stats, model and plume switches
Part upgrade handling so that older configurations of engines can still be selected after unlocking the upgrade for accurate replicas

For those familiar with KSP mods, BDB can be considered a ReStockalike equivalent of FASA, and a US counterpart to Tantares' soviet rockets.

Currently, the mod includes (but is not limited to):

Mercury spacecraft
Gemini spacecraft
Gemini Ferry
Big Gemini 69' (nice)
Big Gemini (Saturn)
