SimpleConstruction! Hero

Preamble by MatterBeam

After testing out Extraplanetary Launchpads and Roverdude's MK/OKS, MatterBeam had the idea of creating a simple, user friendly mod that would allow you to build rockets without taking a 200MB hit to RAM or having to juggle multitudes of resource pathways. If you know how to set up a drill, ISRU and a fuel tank for an Ore to Fuel conversion, then you should know how to build rockets.

Features

  • No extra parts
  • No RAM usage
  • Added functionality for the Mobile Processing Lab in the late game
  • Simple, configurable and adds levels of depth to the gameplay without a learning curve
  • Ore --> Metal --> RocketParts --> rockets!

CurseForge/OverWolf App

Whilst I agree CKAN is a great mod for those that can't use zip tools. I take no part, nor am I interested in maintaining the CKAN mod metadata for my mods. Please don't ask me about it but refer to the CKAN mod thread if you are having issues with CKAN or the metadata it maintains. Beware, CKAN can really mess up though it tries very, very, very hard not to.
