What is "Fuel Tanks Plus" exactly? Simply, it's a set of fuel tanks that are 1.5x the length of the largest stock tanks in each diameter, plus fuel-filled nose cones for those diameters. These tanks are meant to give you some visual choice of styles that are loosely inspired by real-world rockets from NASA and ESA, while maintaining the style established in the Color Coded Canisters mod (since CCC replaces stock visuals, any "new" tanks should be spun off into a separate pack, and hence we have FTP).
Cooperates with other mods:
Part of the NecroBones suite of mods, that work nicely together:
Color Coded Canisters (beautification replacement models/textures for stock tanks, with color-coded end caps, and auto-closing shrouds)
Fuel Tanks Plus (collection of large stock-like tanks with Color Coded Canister style)
ColorFuel Lines (color-selctable fuel lines)
Lithobrake Exploration Technologies (lander parts, large chutes/legs/ladders/etc)
Provide some new visual styles, to dress up the booster sections of your rockets.
Help mildly reduce part count and wobble, by providing larger tanks.
Be as memory efficient as possible. Each diameter has a shared texture to keep memory usage low.
Follow the same colors and artistic style established in Color Coded Canisters.

Released on 2017-04-09
1.12.1 (2017-04-09) - MFT fix.
Released on 2017-04-07
1.12 (2017-04-07) - Tweaks & Fixes.
Corrected a typo that was preventing the B9PartSwitch patches from applying correctly on the radial tanks.
Slightly increased the performance of the 2m/3m stack decouplers, and increased their propellant maximums.
Changed ModularFuelTanks config to use consolidated wildcard patch.
Removed "cryogenic" tank type assignments from the MFT configs.
Stack decouplers in sizes 1.25m, 2.5m, and 3.75m collider updates, now actually hollow.
Released on 2016-10-12
1.11 (2016-10-10) - KSP 1.2 update.
Includes a "Kerbal X Plus" sample rocket, provided by StevieC (untested on my side, so far).
Updated categories for decouplers.
Released on 2016-06-04
1.10 (2016-06-04) - Update.
Altered switcher priorities for mesh switching, to match fuel switching rules.
Added color choices from some adjacent diameters to the 1.25m and 2.5m tanks.
Released on 2016-05-10
1.9.3 (2016-05-10) - Tweaks.
Released on 2016-05-07
1.9.2 (2016-05-07) - Fuel Switching Tweaks.
Added InterstellarFuelSwitch 2.0.2 flags to re-tie radial tank texture to fuel type.
Reduced dry mass of radial tanks when containing MonoPropellant, to better match stock tanks (Firespitter and InterstellarFuelSwitch).
Released on 2016-05-07
1.9.1 (2016-05-06) - Fuel Switching Tweaks.
Added minimum tech requirements for some fuels in the fuel switchers, when using InterstellarFuelSwitch 2.0.1+.
InterstellarFuelSwitch GUI names updated for IFS 2.0.1.
InterstellarFuelSwitch prioritized ahead of B9PartSwitch to take advantage of tech levels.
Released on 2016-05-06
1.9 (2016-05-06) - Update.
Nuclear (single-propellant) tanks capacity increased to match total units for LFO tanks. Names updated accordingly.
B9PartSwitch fuel-switching enabled for most tanks, Switching config overhauled:
Firespitter and InterstellarFuelSwitch support still included, of course.
Calculated values will differ somewhat from the FS/IFS values, for cost, capacity, etc. This is normal.
Radial tanks with texture-switching still rely on FS/IFS for now. Non-switching if only B9 is installed.
B9 mesh switching has been set not to regenerate drag cubes while attaching in the editors.
Crossfeed available (globally!) for radially attached parts, enable button added to radial tanks.
Released on 2016-04-29
1.8.3 (2016-04-29) - Hotfix + Tweaks.
Various small clean-ups in the fuel-switching config.

Started on FuelSwitch compatibility with B9PartSwitch, currently mixed module configuration.
Released on 2016-04-28
