| Astronaut Complex|
| Level 3
|Kerbal Space Center|
In case of career game mode the maximal number of the hired kerbonauts depends on the level of the building. The basic level allows only 5 kerbonauts, upgraded to the second level allows 12, and allows doing EVA too. The fully upgraded building has no capacity limit.
Two panels overlay a static[outdated] background depicting the Complex's interior.
The left panel lists Kerbal Applicants who can be hired. There is no cost to hire an applicant or continue employing them[outdated]. They can be hired by clickin on the green check-mark (✓) appears hovering the arrow on them. Kerbalkind provides an inexhaustible supply of applicants, though exiting and reentering the Astronaut Complex may be necessary.
The right panel shows hired kerbonauts listed in three tabs. The first tab lists hired personnel Available for missions. It is possible to to fire kerbonauts without terminating them by clicking on the red x on each one's bar. The second lists crew Assigned to current missions - the flied craft signed, and the EVA status will also be shown. The last lists kerbonauts Lost during a mission; by default, lost crew are Missing In Action and will reappear after a time, but there is a setting to make lost crew remain dead (K.I.A.).
On the Applicants list meters show each Kerbal's level of Courage and Stupidity; they also have a hidden flag that determines if they're a “badass”. However, these personality traits have no real effect on gameplay[outdated]. These traits are still visible on the poping up (hovering on the bar) window of the hired ones. The hired kerbal's experience, level, and skills are shown on these tabs, which do have gameplay effects.
The Astronaut Complex's is a single, roughly six-storey tall building constructed symmetrically as a westward facing semi-circle with a small extension in the middle of its east side. Its front lawn to the west is highly manicured and focused on a climbable flagpole. Toilets are visible in the Astronaut Complex when it is destroyed.
