Missing Swivel Engine in Tutorial Fix
By shulk
KSP 1.12.2 broke the construction tutorials by replacing the Swivel engine and hiding the old one. This guide will show you where to find the old Swivel and advance in the tutorial.

Why does this happen?
In the most recent update, version 1.12.2, Squad replaced the models for the Swivel and Reliant engines with new models. When they revamp parts, they don't replace the old part, but instead hide the old part from the build menu to prevent old craft from breaking. Usually, they update the tutorials when they revamp parts, but they didn't update the tutorials to use the new Swivel, causing the glitch.
The Fix
The advanced sort menus in the VAB don't hide old parts, however. Open the advanced sort tab by clicking the arrow in the top left corner of the VAB menu, then select Filter by Manufacturer from the new options.


















In the manufacturer filter, find Jebediah Kerman's Junkyard and Spacecraft Parts Co.















The Swivel engine should be the last part in the part list. Select it and add it to your rocket. The tutorial should now let you proceed.
















There is also a mod made by linuxgurugamer that fixes the broken tutorials, installing this will unhide the Swivel: https://forum.kerbalspaceprogram.com/index.php?/topic/206198-112x-tutorial-fixes/

Thank you for this guide. Last played in 2019, and considered reinstalling today -- browsing guides to reacquaint myself with mechanics and saw this guide.
Your guide is very well written and clear, easy to understand...well done.
