Velcro Rockets was intended to facilitate creation of other addons that required multistage or similar capabilities. There have been expansions to the launch vehicles included with Velcro rockets, including:

Velcro Saturns (v. 1.11) Velcro EELVS (v. 1.02) Velcro NEXUS (v. 1.0) Velcro N-1 (v. 1.0) Velcro Skybolt (v. 1.0) Velcro NOTSNIK (v. 1.01).


Functions[edit]

With Velcro rockets, a vessel can be attached as a parallel stage, a crossfeeding stage and a in-line stage. Stages can also be attached using CVEL.


Known Bugs[edit]

-Stages will likely ignite spontaneously at high time accelerations

-After being edited with the scenario editor, all velcro stages in the scenario may put out only reduced thrust.

-Sometimes after being switched to from another vessel, the stage will put out only reduced thrust.
