Outdated Mod

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

This is a stock-alike (ish) probe expansion pack inspired by real missions from the mid-1960s to now. Featuring new probe cores, batteries, solar panels, reaction wheels and many new science parts! Includes parts inspired by Voyager, Cassini, Pioneer 10, MAVEN, Venera and more!

KSP VERSION NOTE: This is a parts mod and will generally work on newer versions of KSP even if Spacedock says it is out of date. However, you will have to download newer versions of DMagic Science Animate, and Firespitter. The included versions the latest available at release. If you have any issues or questions, please reach out to me on the Official KSP Forums. Let me know if you would prefer that I maintain the dependencies updated even if no new parts are released.

  • If you playing career mode, it is recommended that you reduce the science gains in the difficulty options. The mod adds several new science experiments that will make science progression too easy for some.
  • NOTE: ProbesPlus does not overwrite or replace any stock parts, so it can be safely used with any part replacement mods like Ven's Stock Revamp. Stock parts can be used alongside my new models!
