A Better way to arrange Parts in VAB/SPH. I made this example in Photoshop of what I had in mind would be a decent solution. Clutter Free?

    This is the best idea yet. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had to scroll up and down until I found the right fuselage. There’s already even tags on objects about their cross section size.

    YES!! I WANT THAT. Sorry for the yelling, but this is a great idea! Did you post this in the forums under suggestions? If not: DO IT NOW.

    But how will I spend hours scrolling up and down looking for the one part I need?

    Or two drop-down lists to filter by size and fuel type

    This is an illegal building technique

    Doesn't advanced sorting already give this option?

    Real question though since I'm new to this subreddit, are the devs active here and genuinely take suggestions? Because if so please do this!

    It is way better. Beginners and people who aren't play everyday have to search for a suitable part. Something for Squad to bring on in game.

    Something like this already exists in the menus if you choose the arrow at the top left corner...

    I just had a happy accident in my pants. Please do! It would be so useful. Technically it exists in one of the other menus but it isn't as good.

    I think a more simple solution would be to just rename the parts, so the parts begin with their size or function. So it would look similar to your mock-up, but without the extra sub-tabs. Since the parts list defaults to alphabetical, renaming parts would be easier. Or at the very least, state what size they are on the item card thing. Currently we have the cubic and non-cubic Octagonal Struts, which look similar to the Modular Girder Segment, but annoyingly the Octagonal Struts and Girder Segments are not located together. Even though they have the same uses. Not to mention the fuel tab is horrifically inconsistent. The 0.8m parts are all over the place, and the space plane parts are slapped awkwardly in the middle of the parts list. The engine tab needs to be rearranged as well. I would also prefer the strut and fuel line parts to be located at the top of their tabs as well.

    Please someone make a mod like that!!!

    I mean this is kind of already in the game, if you click on the 3 lines and triangle at the top left it opens "advanced options" or whatever and you can sort by piece cross-section, fuel types, etc.

    I definitely like that idea. As is, the parts list gets too big and cluttered with mods, or even late in a vanilla career.

    yes Yes YES

    Yes we need this, just a basic user friendly UI were you don’t need to know what every part looks like in order to find the right size.

    This sort of exists as a sorting option in one of the sorting tabs. However, this is still far more organized, and would totally help us with lots of extra parts mods.

    Whose dick do I have to suck to make this happen?

    You know you can actually sort, kind of, by size by pressing the arrow |||> in the top left corner?
  • Posted: February 4, 2019 13:43

    Herhahahaha

    THIS IS GENIUS
  • Posted: February 4, 2019 13:43

    skeetsauce

    Should we tell him guys? This exists in game already. Click the emblem that looks like '|||>' in the upper left corner and you can sort by diameter and shape.

    Love it. A sort for diameter and tech levels is an awesome idea.

    A long time ago I created my own custom cfg's to use with the Filter Extensions mod. This is how I have mine set up, complete with sub-catagories inside the part size catagory. [https://imgur.com/sasHFAb](https://imgur.com/sasHFAb)

    The categorization is great, but hell no to auto closed expansion panels (+/-). So time consuming clicking open various panels. This would be best if the panels were open all the time.

    Great, now [poke the devs](https://bugs.kerbalspaceprogram.com/projects/ksp/issues/new) about it so we can upvote it somewhere where upvotes actually might make it likely to become a thing in stock.

    Sharproeon

    Yes that could be a good idea also today I dropped a kerbal from Low Munar Orbit with an impact speed of 253 m/s and she is there waiting for rescue
  • Posted: February 4, 2019 13:43

    Yes, especially since all the decouplers look the same now.

    Who wants to make a team to make this mod, I would LOVE this mod, especially with RSS. I’m serious too

    Someone mod this pls
  • Posted: February 4, 2019 13:43

    At the very least this deserves to be a mod, but preferably in the stock game

    Please devs, please implement that! I'm sure it's not much coding to do !!

    I do a search in each section. Mk3, etc. just figured that out last night

    I love it! It drives me mad searching for the mk.2 to 2.5m adapter when its at the top of the list and all other mk.2 parts are at the bottom.
