themaster401 posted a topic in Add-on ReleasesRepackaging one of the greatest mods to ever exist in this game Astronomer's Visual Pack, until now, was only barely compatible with the latest versions of Kerbal Space Program, due to the use of the decrepit EVE 7-4. This was until a user by the name of "RangeMachine" ported the old version of EVE to Kerbal Space Program 1.1, and subsequently 1.2. This allowed the barely-working E.V.E. 7-4 mods to finally breathe once again in a new generation of Kerbal Space Program. I have taken the time to update and repackage both AVP: Edge of Oblivion and Interstellar v2 for Kerbal Space Program 1.2 and beyond, with none of Astronomer's original work modified. Downloads (I know everyone will stop reading past this haha) Compatiblity configs for planet packs Two reasons why this new download exists: one, because I was dumb and named the previous mod page what it is right now and cannot change it, and two, this iteration of the repackaging marks a step forward in the mod, rather than staying behind on E.V.E. 7-4 ports we move on to the latest E.V.E. Oh, and since all the cool kids are doing it, I've decided to include instructions for installing KSPRC's textures with AVP. Installation The download is in a drag-and-drop structure, with the texture resolutions being modular on GitHub. There are three downloads for the textures, 2k, 4k, and 8k. Features - All features present in the original AVP. (I have barely added any of my own touches, mostly irrelevant config tweaks.) 8k Kerbin clouds Bioluminescent clouds for Laythe 7 8k cloud layers for Jool Glow for all non-atmospheric bodies where relevant 8k auroras Sandstorms and surface dust Snow on Kerbin, Duna, and Laythe Lightning on Eve, Kerbin, Duna, and Laythe 4k custom skybox by Astronomer Optional compatiblity with KSPRC textures High-res volumetric clouds Compatiblity with most other cloud packs. Prepackaged mods: Featuring the mods (must install dependencies): Environmental Visual Enhancements Thank you rbray for the legendary visual enhancements mod, and thank you Waz for maintaining it. ModuleManager Thank you sarbian for making KSP modding possible at this scale. TextureReplacer Thank you shaw for allowing the community to replace the game's textures, and thank you RangeMachine for maintaining it. Scatterer Thank you blackrack for the atmospheric scattering, which alone enhances KSP's visuals greatly. Kopernicus Thank you Thomas P. for allowing us to modify KSP's planets and create entirely new worlds. Optional enhancements: KSPRC (textures only) Thank you Proot for a legendary complete overhaul of the game's visuals, of which the trademark terrain and land feature textures are used in this mod. Distant Object Enhancement Thank you MOARdV for making planets actually visible in the dark void. Planetshine Thank you Valerian for the immersive Planetshine effect in Kerbal Space Program. Chatterer Thank you Athlonic for the enhanced audio experience, with chatters , ambient noise, and, well, noise in general. Previously featuring: Kerbal Visual Enhancements Thank you RangeMachine for bringing back E.V.E. 7-4. OPMclouds Thank you Eleusis La Arwall for the original cloud configurations for the Outer Planets Mod. Support I'm commonly active on the Kerbal Space Program Subreddit Discord, go ahead and ping me there if you need help. You can also just reply below with your KSP.log and perhaps a screenshot. FAQ: Q: Help! Weird floating terrain chunks! A: Please check around the forums and internet before asking a question, as this one has been answered hundreds of times. Turn off scatterer's ocean shaders. Q: Lag. A: Use a lower AVP-Textures. Lower your KSP settings. Turn off "EVE-Scatterer integration" in scatterer settings (note that this setting makes all planets look much more natural, looks may be off with this feature disabled). Q: How do I fix the look of clouds hovering above the horizon, detached from the atmosphere? A: I did the best I could to naturalize the look, but there's no more I can do. The clouds will hover above the horizon, it's something in the code of EVE. It's only a couple pixels width, anyways. License: LGPL (This license is most similar to Astronomer's statement in the license.txt in the original Astronomer's Visual Pack) Donations: Of course, there are no donations going to me! If you would like to donate, please give to the original developer of AVP, Astronomer himself! Screenshots: Note: Due to the incredible similarities between this mod and Matchlight's "Andromeda Visuals: Daydream", I'd like to state that I was the first to update and repack Astronomer's Visual Pack for 1.2.2, and did not copy Matchlight's mod in any way. In fact, I had adapted AVP configs for the new EVE all on my own. The old download is almost identical to Matchlight's mod.
