Just finished downloading from Steam... today will be my first time playing the game!!!

This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on reddit.com/r/KerbalSpaceProgram

Our great sponsors
  • Scout APM - Less time debugging, more time building
  • SonarQube - Static code analysis for 29 languages.
  • SaaSHub - Software Alternatives and Reviews
  • CKAN

    The Comprehensive Kerbal Archive Network (by KSP-CKAN)

    If you want to install mods I recommend using the CKAN mod manager. Modding manually is fairly simple if you prefer (just drag mods into GameData folder) but CKAN makes it easier to keep them updated, and it will add any dependencies or track conflicts between mods.

  • KerbalEngineer

    Kerbal Engineer v1.0 (current in-development build).

    As far as mods go I highly recommend Kerbal Engineer Redux which gives you access to more (customizable) data on screen. If you want more recommendations for mods let me know.

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.

  • TutorialFixes

    Fix the broken tutorials in KSP 1.12.x

    Some of the in-game tutorials in the current version are apparently bugged but there is a mod (Tutorial Fixes) that fixes the problems. The in game tutorials also aren't really the best, some Youtube tutorials might be necessary. Scott Manley is the go-to but his videos are a bit older so I would recommend also familiarizing yourself with the maneuver node tools seen in this video because that was added long after Scott made his tutorial series and it makes it a lot easier to make precise maneuvers.
