85GW capable space power station for KSPIE with launch platform. Provides 55MW with spot size <2m throughout entire Kerbin system (Kerbin LKO to past Minmus).
Launching this beast is tricky - I’d recommend using mechjeb til about 40-50km altitude, with acceleration capped to 20m/s, AoA capped at .5 with a 2000PA dynamic fadeout. This launch profile is suboptimal - you basically climb straight out of the atmosphere, then burn at a 0 degree pitch (directly along the horizon) to circularize. This is required as a standard gravity turn causes a ton of shearing force on the transmitter and it will likely blow off.
Once in space, there’s an electrical engine transfer stage for placement with plenty of delta/v and thrust (.11 TWR). Make sure to turn these off when in final location so they don’t consume power from the generator.
Built in the VAB in KSP version 1.12.3.
