A stock mothership called KSS Innovation. Built with 336 of the finest parts, its root part is mk3FuselageLF.100.

The KSS Innovation is a mothership that was designed for a collaborative YouTube series that didn’t happen. I repurposed it for Jacob Plays Some Games’s subscriber craft series.

It was designed for a dramatic failure scene, hence the flawed aerobraking mechanism, emergency lights, and escape pods.

Despite it being designed only to explode, the Innovation has over eight kilometers per second of delta-v, fully functioning docking ports, and aerobraking that might* work if tried correctly.

Flight tips:
1. Open the bay doors before launching the escape pods.
2. Aerobrake facing retrograde, as that is where the heat shields are.
3. Save some oxidizer for the Vernor engine RCS.

Also, the craft has a fairly extensive interior layout with at least six different rooms designed to be accessible by EVA. A first person EVA mod is recommended if you plan to use this feature. Despite being divided into rooms, the Innovation’s interior is rather sparse, so add stuff to the rooms if you like! The escape pods are also accessible from the interior.

*Aerobraking was tested at 160km on Jool. Only some parts exploded, so that’s a plus.

Built in the SPH in KSP version 1.2.2.
