Resources

Resource wedges contain stock and Community Resource Pack resources for use in your craft.  All resource wedges are available in four size configurations, allowing for more storage without raising part count.  The core wedges are available in an otherwise stock KSP install, however several of the resources are also used in 3rd party mods and will be available for use in the expanded systems.
