This is accurate as of USI Kolonization Systems (MKS) version 0.50.0

The Tundra series contains larger, more permanent parts, that can be used for planetary or orbital stations. Many of the components come in both a 2.5m and 3.75m configuration.

The parts can be divided into several general categories:


Construction

The various construction parts allow you to connect the other pieces to each other or other KSP parts.

MKS Tundra Adapters

2.5m End Cap 3.75m End Cap

Two endcap adapters are provided for merging modules of different sizes. These are used for aesthethic purposes, not functional.

Career

There are two types of career modules:

  • The Akademy trains the Kerbals to improve their skill level
  • The Medical Bays heal tourists of homesickness

MKS Tundra Training Akademy

Training Akademy

A field training center for training your Kerbonauts. When training is conducted, attendees will gain experience based on the instructors present, and in their chosen field. Up to one star when used on Kerbin, two stars while in orbit, and three stars if training takes place landed on another planet or moon.

Medical Bay

When mishaps befall your Kerbals, or when Kerbals become homesick, simply transfer them into the medical bay, and any scientist on your crew can help them become happy and healthy again. Only works on Kerbals inside of the module, consumes ColonySupplies.

There are two sizes of the Medical Bays: 2.5m and 3.75m.

Power

Power modules produce ElectricCharge by converted EnrichedUranium into DepletedFuel. One of these modules produces the power on an industrial scale while the other re-processes the spent fuel so it can be used again. The Power Distribution Unit (PDU) is typically later in a colony's development when a large amount of power is required. The Nuclear Fuel Plant is then deployed towards the end of a colony's development to allow the colony to be power independent.

MKS Tundra Nuclear Fuel Plant

Nuclear Fuel Plant

Processing plant for nuclear fuel production and refinement. The centrifuge processes Uraninite using machines spinning really fast and produces EnrichedUranium. DepletedFuel can also be reprocessed with USI Breeder technology, coaxing out every bit of EnrichedUranium left in the fuel. Suitible for interplanetary operations, spacecraft, stations, and surface bases (radiators not included.) Centrifuge not suitable for Kerbal entertainment purposes.
