1.4.5 1.5.1

Version 1.5, named Dressed for Success, is a major update that released on October 15, 2018.[1] An update for the Making History expansion was released alongside this major release.



  • Optimized the game for 4K resolution and increased the UI scale to 200%
  • Added higher impact tolerance to retracted solar panels.
  • Deployable parts now use separate value for their impact resistance when retracted.
  • Implemented a new version of the kerbal suits for the base game. This includes IVA suits for recruits and veterans as well as EVA suits.
  • Revised the behaviour of asteroids within Kerbin's SOI and gave them better VFX.
  • Added a "What's New" dialog to the main menu, where you can quickly see the highlights of the release as well as the full change log. (you're probably reading this from that very dialog).
  • Improved Burn Time information on Maneuver nodes. Includes correctly calculated burn time and Stage Information; Burn bar indication when vessel does not have enough DeltaV to perform the maneuver.
  • Staging of docking ports now available in flight. Changing staging of docking ports allows the player to change the Delta-V of the vessel for docked vessels which changes the Burn Time Information on Maneuver nodes.
  • Kerbals can now be placed in external command seats in the VAB/SPH.
  • Wheel suspension now has auto spring/damper to combat bouncing wheels. This can be turned on and off via Advanced Tweakables per wheel (in symmetry).
  • Added a Burn Time Indicator slide to KSPedia.
  • In editor (VAB/SPH) switch symmetry mode back to what it was set to after hovering over a node.
  • Allow pinning of PAWs and resource transfer for highlighted parts from Resources App.
  • Implemented new text for agent descriptions and mentality.


  • Fix lingoona gender tags in resource names in PAWs.
  • Localization of bulkhead size and other automatic search string tags.
  • Fix Community localization feedback for the Fly Through? Node pt.2.
  • Fix Community localization feedback for fly through Node pt. 2 in Japanese.
  • Fix German community localization feedback for "Schwerkraft mindern", changed to "Sanfte Schwerkraft Aktivierung".
  • Did a general grammar and lexical pass on KSPedia.
  • Localized Debug menu UI titles.
