SpaceY Lifters is a parts pack that is intended to extend the stock line-up of parts for lifting heavy payloads to orbit, by providing a similar update to the NASA/ARM pack from 0.23.5, in the next size up.
It provides a range of 5m fuel tanks and engines, a fueled 3.75m nose-cone, both "stack" and "radial" decouplers, a fueled size adapter, and a range of powerful SRBs.
The name is a play on "SpaceX" in the real world, but also has the amusing double connotations of being "spacey", and also "Space, why?" -- Because it's there!
All of the models and textures were made 100% from scratch, using Blender, Photoshop, and Unity.
Part of the NecroBones suite of mods, that work nicely together!
Large rocketry utilities-- Big radial decouplers with thrusters built in, larger sepratron, etc.
Contains several unusual or unique features, including some "firsts":
- Compatibility patches
- Contracts for these glorious parts
- Variant Textures
- Converting from FireSpitter to Stock and/or KSPWheel
- Model updates to Unity 2019
- Marketing Images and Videos such as hero shots, animated gifs, short highlights
- Have a request? Glad to have them, kindly submit through GitHub.

I take no part, nor am I interested in maintaining the CKAN mod metadata for my mods. CKAN is a great mod for those that can't use zip tools. If you are having issues please let the CKAN people know and refer to the CKAN thread. My support of CKAN extends as far as me checking the checkbox in Spacedock when I upload. Beware, CKAN can really mess up though it tries very, very, very hard not to.
