Seems mass and cost values may have been overlooked in structural tube and thrust plate configs
Seems the mass, cost, and unlock costs got overlooked when the new structural tubes and thrust plates for Making History were being made. They all share the same value (75 kg, 300 funds to use, 3000 funds to unlock) regardless of diameter. I'm guessing the basics of the configs were copied to save time and those entries must have just been missed when going through and correcting the values to represent the different sizes.

The variants have different mass and cost,
but the values are all so low compared to the decouplers that they are effectively still the same, at essentially zero.
EP18 2, 4, 7, 9, 13kg 9, 16, 23, 28, 39f (cf. 120kg 475f for a decoupler)
EP25 4, 8,12,16, 23kg 15, 26, 36, 45, 62f (cf 210kg 550f)
EP50 31,47,62,94,125kg 78,109,137,189,238f (cf 640kg 650f)
[Edit:The variant masses are in the sensible order. Earlier I was reading 13,2,4,7,9kg from the Engineer's Report, going from short to long, but the numbers I read were delayed. Touching the next part brings Engineer's Report up to date. ]

I agree, the costs and masses of the plates should - for the smallest plate of each diameter - be at least equal to the cost of the same-diameter decoupler, and possibly more considering the added benefit of extra engines. And of course they should go UP with tweaked length, not down :)
