Universal Storage II (UvSii) is the follow up to KSP’s original wedge based parts mod,  Service modules are build from a central core, around which you can place various resource and processor wedges.  Customization fairings complete the service module, providing aerodynamic shielding with access via payload doors. Most parts are resizable allowing increased storage capacity while keeping part counts low.

Features

Three step build process

Service modules are built from three basic parts.  The core provides the structure with space to attach payload wedges and the fairing provides aerodynamic shielding.


Multiple configurations

Most parts have multiple height options, allowing increased resource storage without bloating part count.  Cost, mass and capacity all scale linearly so every configuration is balanced.

Larger cores and fairings have multiple configurations.  The larger cores feature a central fuel tank or a crew transfer tunnel (for use with Connected Living Space).  Selected fairings can be configured as a payload bay for use without a core or wedges.

Fairings can be configured to match the look of your craft, with either Porkjet, Gemini, Apollo or Saturn (Universal Storage Classic) paint schemes.


Designed to work with 3rd party mods

Built from the ground up to provide resource storage for the popular life support mods.  The game will automatically detect which mods you have installed and load payload wedges to match.  In addition, Universal Storage is closely linked with DMagic Orbital science to provide a large selection of wedge format science experiments when both are installed.  Wedges are Kerbal Inventory System (KIS) compatible, allowing Kerbals on EVA to swap out wedges as part of a resupply mission.

Compatible mods


KSPedia

Full KSPedia support provides in-game information on the parts, their features and how to build craft.  The mod includes support for animated gifs in KSPedia pages.


Career mode support

The mod is fully comparable with career mode, with parts balanced against their non-wedge equivalents ensuring there are no ‘cheat’ parts.  Part unlocking follows a logical progression with the majority of parts available at tier five and six.
