  • I need a few mods
    Yes, you do!
  • RP-1 Doesn't show up in CKAN

    If your goal is to install mods that haven't been marked as compatible with KSP 1.11.2, then it is as easy as following these instructions and select KSP 1.11. You are also fine selecting KSP 1.10, 1.9 and 1.8, but don't go below that, things will break.
  • CKAN error-Object reference not set to instance of an object
    Happened since today, worked fine previously- I opened up CKAN and got the following error- Object reference not set to an instance of an object. Full log at bottom. I tried installing the latest update from 11 days ago which didn't fix the error. Have tried following this link but my registry.json is not empty.
  • CKAN is not working at all
    This issue is known and already fixed for the next release. For now you can work around this by following the instructions I've posted in this comment:

    Mods go in the GameData folder. But I find it easiest to just use CKAN to install/update mods.
