KSP is bought through Steam, and is updated regulary free of charge. Once you buy it, you own it. It requires a good deal of ram, if you want to add mods. And you need a low-end graphics card, like a GeForce 750. Make sure you run the 64-bit exe, though.

Well it won't be like Sky Lab weighing in at 7 tons (vs. 77 tons).  Surviving pieces up to 100 kg.  Less than Columbia also, hopefully it will drop into the oceans.

Is the program on a leased basis? What kind of setup is required to run?

The gas generator also ran it's fuel very rich. I believe that after every firing it had to be stripped down and the carbon buildup cleaned out.

Real-world, that sounds like assigning too much dV to the first stage. Maybe add a smaller external tank for the shuttle so the first stage doesn't need to be so enourmous? That would leave everything reusable except for the small ET. The SSME's could get smaller, too, to assign more mass budget to the fuel.

Modifying an F-1 to be restartable doesn't sound impossible, so I do not think that is the key feasibility problem with your plan.
