When emptied of ablator via tweakables, the part costs nothing due to a coincidence with part cost and the resource cost of ablator. (This has been fixed as of KSP 1.3, as the part used to cost 900 Funds, exactly the cost of 1,800 ablator, but has been increased by 200 Funds, therefore making the part cost 200 Funds dry)


  • Increased cost from 900 to 1100
  • Moved from Aero to Thermal
  • Added ModuleLiftingSurface
  • Max temperature increased from 3000 to 3300
  • Initial release
