Description

As an addition to the Mun base (with suboptimal waste management), this simple rover can be used to clear the area from old debris…

The idea is to bring 1 Center Node and 4 Habitation Arms in a low orbit around Mun (or of course anywhere else, but then you’ll have to adjust the transport stages), dock them together and land the whole structure. You’ll have to pay attention to aligning the docking ports correctly, otherwise your base will be twisted! Back in the day I did pay attention to balancing the arms, so the CoT should match the CoM after final assembly, but my fuel calculations at the time were… sub-optimal. If you assemble everything in a really low orbit (10ish km above Mun), you should be able to land everything, but your focus should be on maneuver efficiency! But don’t worry, my fuel ran out some 10m above the surface of my target crater, but all those landing legs can buffer quite some landing. ;-) Also the final detachment of the landing modules could have used a little more attention to detail. The final assembly can host up to 40 Kerbals!

There’s a small Green Sun Bulldozer, too, that you can use to clean up all the landing debris afterwards. There’s also a huge and fancy beacon available, which serves no purpose but looking good!

Built with 144 of the finest parts, its root part is trussPiece3x.

Built in the VAB in KSP version 0.22.0.
