Fuel Tanks Plus (FTP)

A set of fuel tanks that are longer than largest stock tanks in each diameter, plus fuel-filled nose cones for those diameters. These are meant to give you some visual choice of styles that are loosely inspired by real-world rockets from NASA, ESA, and private space firms (though that inspiration is mainly in color choice), while maintaining the style established in the Color Coded Canisters mod.

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, ESA, and private space firms (though that inspiration is mainly in color choice), 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).

Design Goals

  • 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.

Help Wanted

  • additional textures
  • Switch to stock variant textures
  • Model updates to Unity 2019
  • Have a request? Glad to have them, kindly submit through GitHub.

Localization

  • English English
  • your translation here

HELP WANTED - See the README in the Localization folder for instructions for adding or improving translations. GitHub push is the best way to contribute. Additions and corrections welcome!
