Parts (MKS General Components)
Parts: MKS General Components
There are many modules that support MKS that are not part of the Ranger, Duna, or Tundra series, including:
Drills are tools used to extract resources from a planetary body (planet, moon, or asteroid) for storage or processing. They come in multiple sizes and support extraction of different resources. Drills also support one or more Converters modules. These can be configured so the drill processes a single resource at full efficiency or distributes the efficiency across multiple resources.
Several items have been provided to help with constructing bases. In addition to the Konstruction! mod, MKS provides the following.
|200||0.05||MKS Kerbitrail(tm) FlexOTube - Expandable, Bendable, attachable tubes up to 50m long. Requires KAS.|
|3,800||0.1||Microwave Power Tranceiver - Allows for the transfer of power via microwave transmission|
|3,800||0.05||Power Coupler - Allows for the transfer of power via physical cables|
Extraplanetary Launchpads is a separate mod that allows initially constructing ships, bases, and other items in the SPH or VAB and then using special parts and processes to construct them on other planetary objects using launchpads or stakes.
MKS has developed its own take on this, providing two capabilities for remotely building ships and other craft. Each part can store a certain amount of
SpecializedParts. These parts are purely cosmetic without EL.
Note that these parts are depreciated and will likely be removed in a future version of MKS, as EL support is being replaced with support and integration for Ground Construction.
