[1.0.5] Flight Manager for Reusable Stages [FMRS] v1.0.01
==========================================================


Description
===========

	FMRS lets you jump back and forth in time.
	It generates save points after separating controllable probes, ship, landers, ...
	So you can launch your mission into space, then jump back in time to the separation and have full control over your dropped vessels.

	You can do SpaceX´s Falcon 9 style launches and fly your first stage back to the launch site.
	Or launch a space plane on the back of a normal plane. Bring the space plan into space and then fly the launch plane back to the runway.
	Drop scientific probes out of flying planes. Let them descend to the ground and do research.

	The separated vessels will be added to your main save after landing, or automatically recovered.

Instruction
============

	Every vessel which should be listed needs to have a probe core, command pod or a RealChute on it.
	Go to the launch pad or runway and arm FMRS.
	Launch you mission as usual.
	Separate your boosters, probes, ...
	Every separated vessel which is controllable or has a RealChute will be listed in the window of the plugin.
	Now you can jump back to the time of separation and have full control over these vessels.
	After you have landed, jump to other dropped crafts or go back to your main vessel and close the plugin.
