    EDIT: Thanks to lazarus78 and some other tutorials I found online I was able to make most of this mod by myself.

    Hello I am looking for a mod that increases the fuel costs. I just think it is a little bit too easy to travel between planets nowadays. Specifically I am looking for a mod that:
    • no longer makes interplanetary travel free
    • increases the fuel costs
    • allows me to use coal as fuel
    Does a mod like this exist?
    If not could someone please make this for me? Or tell me how I could do it myself? Here are my suggestions fuel costs:
    • Traveling to a new Planet within the same same Cluster: 25 fuel.
    • Traveling to a new Cluster within the same Solar System: 50 fuel.
    • Traveling to a new Solar System: 500 fuel.
    • and coal will give 1 fuel.
    Thank you for reading my mod request. :)

    Adding cost to intra-system travel is possible, though not at set values per se, but I don't think upping the cost of inter-system travel is. And adding coal to the fuel list is trivial. Just duplicate whatever plutonium does that make it a valid fuel.

    For intrasystem fuel cost, look in ..\interface\cockpit\cockpit.config for "intraSystemFuelcost"
    For Coal, add "fuelAmount" : 1 to it.
