After Apollo 14 closed the H-series missions in the Apollo program, the J-series missions began. These included Apollo 15, 16, 17, and the planned 18. They featured 10+ day surface stays, plus a rover. I included the Apollo Lunar Science Experiment Package (ALSEP), as well as the conceptual Lunar Landing Escape System (LLES) in my recreation to counterbalance the rover. The LLES would allow astronauts to escape the Moon’s surface if the LEM was damaged at all, though it never flew.

Why it never flew is made really clear in my recreation: balance is a pain, navigation is a pain, and the Kerbals keep falling off the ladder. However, the rest of the recreation works great.
