These stand-alone parts will be available with an otherwise stock KSP install.  In addition to the stock game resources, Liquid fuel, Oxidizer and monopropellent, three new resources are introduced, Oxygen and Hydrogen can be used to run the included fuel cell which will output electric charge and water.  The electrolyzer will use electric charge to split this water back into hydrogen and oxygen. These parts are based on and balanced to, their real world equivalents, using Apollo and space shuttle era technology.

Cores

The three cores provide the basic structure for wedges.  These for part of the stack with attachment nodes at the top and bottom and a number of smaller nodes for the wedges.  All cores include mounting hardware that can be operated during EVA allowing Kerbal’s to attach and remove wedges on-mission (KIS required).  If tweak scale is installed the cores and wedges can be resized.

Quad core

A central core that allows the attachment of four Universal Storage segments.  The core includes fuel cross feed capability but is too small for crew transfer.  Designed to fit a 1.25 meter stack  It also looks great in a station with the wedge fairing disabled.

Hexacore

With thin walls and a tiny service passage, the Hexacore is often touted as the central truss of an accident waiting to happen. Often purchased by desperate space agencies strapped for cash and common sense, this core represents a balancing act of price and functionality. Holds six wedges (reasonably well). The core includes fuel cross feed and a crew transfer tunnel (connected living space required). Designed for a 1.875 meter stack.

Wedges (Processors)

The wedges contain the useful parts of the Universal Storage system.  Each wedge features a single attachment node and a fairing with opening door (fairing can be removed for a more bare bones look).

Alkaline Fuel Cell

This small fuel cell consumes hydrogen and oxygen to produce potable water, heat, and a moderate electrical output. Although much safer for Kerbals than RTGs, please don’t tease the stirring fans.

This part is based on the Apollo fuel cell, later updated and used in the Space Shuttle. Unlike the Stock KSP fuel cell, this one uses H2 and O2 to produce power and H2O at an equivalent rate of the real thing.  Note that although 1 unit of H2 and O2 represents 1 liter of the resource at STP (standard pressure and temperature) there is no known value of 1 unit of electric charge and so some estimation has been necessary.  This was done by using the size and power of stock KSP solar panels and comparing them to a selection of real world space craft panels.

Elektron

A complex electrolyzer, the Elektron converts water into oxygen and hydrogen at the expense of large amounts of electricity. With a chassis originally built for high pressure fumigation equipment, the Elektron has proven itself apt at both sustaining and destroying little green crawling things. Outputs 800 liters of oxygen per litre of input water.

This device is almost an exact copy of the Russian Elektron used in the International Space Station.  The technology of splitting water in to H2 and O2 is very basic and well understood and can be replicated in a class room or kitchen.  The difficulty is containing these two very explosive gases safely and storing them in a usable state.  For KSP this means compressing them to a liquid for storage.  The power requirements include the need to liquefy these resources.

LF10 Fuel Tank

Crafted from the finest crude oil barrels available to science – the LF10 Fuel Tank provides just enough fuel to be useful on lander ascent stages, or spacecraft yearning to be free of the Oscar-B’s tyranny.

Note 1 unit of Liquid fuel or Oxidizer does not represent 1 liter of the real world equivalent (RP1 and liquid oxygen).  Some estimation has been used to arrive at the values shown.  Because of these differences the mod treats oxidizer and oxygen as separate resources even though they are essentially the same thing.  Like other KSP fuel tanks both resources are included in the single tank.  Tank capacity includes space for insulation to ensure the cryogenic liquid oxygen is kept cool (venting is outside the scope of this mod, but other mods do provide that level of realism).

M30 Monoprop Tank

A small, low pressure tank designed for use with Reaction Control systems, the M30 comes adorned with a semi-new paint job and a variety of high tech “speed holes”. According to our marketing team, they make your ship go faster.

KSP monoprop represents both true monopropellent and hypergolic bipropellents.  These are typically liquid at STP so the majority of the tank volume can be devoted to resource storage.

Water Tank

A revolution in micro-gravity plumbing technology, the ‘US-W120 Water Storage Apparatus’ enables spacecraft to carry up to 120 liters of filtered drinking water into space. Although accused of profiteering and price gouging in a fledgling civilian market; the fine engineers at Nox Industrial assure us the US-W120 is at least 74% non-perishable metal and not at all a spray-painted fish-tank.

Radial tanks

These surface attachable tanks cab used to boost the life support capability of small craft such as rovers or landers.

One external oxygen canister with its contents under low pressure. Although holding much less gas than its cryogenic counterparts, the lower density helps minimize weight on landers, and helps to keep the workplace occupational hazard department off our backs.
