  1. Repackaging 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.
  2. I just completed my manned return from Niven in GPP 2.5x scale. It was a challenging mission due to the use of stock parts in a scaled-up save but with MOAR boosters and a good bit of Kerbucks it is doable.
  3. PARA-SCI HIGH-PERFORMANCE ATMOSPHERE PACK For use with KSP 1.2 and the EnvironmentalVisualEnhancements mod Since many of us are sometimes, or always, forced to play KSP on laptops and other devices with weak GPUs or otherwise not optimized for gaming, I present the Para-Sci High-Performance Atmosphere Pack, wherein I have done my best to combine good visuals with minimal graphics demand. FULL PREVIEW ALBUM: Notes: - Most bodies, with the exception of Kerbol and the particularly lumpy minor moons, include a "glow" layer that enhances their appearance at long distances and fades away on approach. - Many of the glow layers make use of the original KSP planet textures; naturally credit goes to SQUAD for these and I advise against attempting to redistribute them or use them for things other than KSP, KSP mods, or KSP fanart. - None of the cloud layers have a "layer3D" (volumetric clouds) component. While this does cause us to miss out on that feature, the numerous large particles it involved rendering tend to be a major performance drain and thus they have been left out. - None of the cloud layers cast shadows either. - All bodies have a maximum of three cloud layers; most have only one. - The pack currently does not include aurorae, noctilucent clouds, or dust storms, although some of these may be added in the future if I feel up to it. - Some textures are the original textures packaged alongside the main EVE installation. Like the SQUAD textures, I advise against violating their licensing terms, etc. - Jool's glow layer uses the beautiful Jool texture painted by @Felsmak. Naturally credit goes to him for that, don't steal it, etc. etc. etc. DOWNLOAD
  4. Hi there This is a parts pack for Kerbal Space Program v1.2.2+, to recreate the glorious Eagle Transporter (N° 3) from the 70's series "Space: 1999". It's my first "mod" and it's a work in progress, so any suggestions and feedback from you are very welcome. Hope you enjoy it. Gallery Tutorial: Launching the Eagle into orbit Downloads SPACEDOCK CURSE Changelog Version 1.03: - Added the Eagle Cargo Pod, with retractable legs, built-in generator and 15 attachment nodes (besides from the 4 VTOL ones at the bottom and the docking one at the top). - Added a dockable Nuclear Canister for storage and transportation of Deuterium and Tritium. - Added the MA-2500 ISRU with built-in radiator and Ore container. Now you can extract Ore and convert it into Deuterium and/or Tritium. - Added two access hatches to the Command Module, one at the back door and another at the bottom (emergency exit). - Changed Tritium to LqdTritium, using Community Resource Pack definition and adjusted Isp accordingly. The fuel rate of the RCS thrusters should be 0.06 L/s. - Adjusted the Main Engine fuel rate (LqdDeuterium) to 7.0 L/s and the VTOL Engine (LiquidFuel+Oxidizer) to 7.353 L/s. - Increased RCS thrust power and RW torque on the Command Module, for stability purposes. - Fixed antenna range on the Service Module and removed built-in antenna on the Moonbuggy, so you can attach one of your choice. Version 1.02: - Changed Deuterium to LqdDeuterium, using Community Resource Pack definition and adjusted Isp accordingly to avoid conflicts. The fuel rate on the Eagle Main Engines should be 7.27 L/s. - Added some more ASL thrust to the Main Engines. - Fixed a problem with a collider on the Eagle Passenger Module, so now you can re-dock it to the ship. Version 1.0: - First release Credits - Mr. Brian Johnson, original designer of The Eagle, worked on Thunderbirds, "2001: A Space Odyssey", Alien and influenced the spaceship designs of Star Wars and others. - James Murphy, original author of the beautiful Eagle 3d mesh and Andy Marrs for the Lightwave conversion. - Roger Clow for his cool Moonbuggy mesh in Lightwave format.

  9. UPDATED! Hello Fellow kerbals! I have now been a member of the KSP forum for almost a year now, and now that its christmas time i wanted to make a mod that NO ONE has ever made before. So i give you the Medieval Weapons Pack for KIS ! This is a mod which adds some weapons from the medieval era. Currently there are only four parts and they are: Dagger, Spear, Short Sword and Long Sword but i want to add some more weapons (they are listed bellow). Scimitar COMING SOON! Shield Helm Siege Weapons Rapier Battle Axe Bow and arrow and a lot of other parts! Alright... Tired of Big Ugly and heavy guns? Just wishing you could stab someone? well now you can! Review by kottabos games. This is a review of the OLD version. Download:Medieval Weapons Pack DOWNLOAD! Requires the Kerbal Inventory System mod. License: MIT
  10. I've been making mods as zip files for a while now, and I seem to recall there was some requirement that the mods be packaged as a zip. But recently I noticed that I get almost half the file size if I switch to 7Z format. And, now that I look for some sign of "why am I using .zip?" I can't find it. I'd love to save everyone (well, 70-odd people plus spacedock) some bandwidth by switching to 7z, but I'm a bit hesitant due to half remembering some reason not to use it. And not knowing how CKAN deals with it. If CKAN can't unpack 7z, then it's out as far as I'm concerned.
  11. While there are many planet packs that you can download that will give new a whole new set of places to explore, my planet pack attempts to do that and provide some of the most unique planets ever while also staying true to stock naming style. Keep in mind that this mod is still in development and it will require Kopernicus. As of right now, I don't even have a beta version ready yet, but hopefully, that should change soon. When I get my first beta version ready to release, I will link it in this post! I don't have all the names finalized yet, so suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Feedback and opinions are also greatly appreciated. Until it's decided that more than 3 solar systems will be added, Zaywa will orbit Kerbol with a semi-major axis of roughly 8 light-years. Zaywa: A blue star about twice the size of Kerbol that emits normal sunlight so players can fully appreciate the beauty of the other bodies in the solar system. One of the problems I see with blue stars emitting blue light is that they tend to make the planets darker and/or mask a lot of the beautiful colors, so by having it emit the same color sunlight as Kerbol, players can fully appreciate the beauty of all the planets and stars in the pack. Zaywa-2: *Naming suggestions wanted* A tiny red dwarf star that again, emits a small amount of normal sunlight for the same reason as its big brother, but orbits Zaywa in a very close orbit to give us a binary star system. Hade: A moonless dark gray gas planet that has a tight orbit around Zaywa. While being roughly the same size as Jool, it's far less dense due to the high temperatures. Crafts should be able to survive a high-altitude flight here as long as you have a heat shield protecting the front of your craft. Pike: A rocky planet with towering volcanoes, lava lakes and a thick, smoke-like atmosphere. Touching the lava is a great way to fry your Kerbals. Overheating in the lava lakes WILL be incorporated in the initial release! Rayn: *Naming suggestions wanted* A large water world with an endless ocean beneath a beautfil blue sky. It features an atmosphere with a small amount of oxygen. Kepler: A green and blue gas planet in the habitable zone of the Zaywa system which has its own set of rings. Its moons are thought to contain life. Atlas: A Kerbin-like world complete with mountains, deserts, oceans, rivers, lakes, grasslands and ice caps. May add in an alien space center Easter Egg if I can figure out how to. Sahra: A world that has vast deserts, tall mountains, ice caps and small oceans all beneath an atmosphere rich in oxygen. Small lakes and rivers are scattered about the desert landscape. Galleon: A large, tidally locked, terrestrial planet that has rings and a few moons... All in a polar orbit! Galleon is meant to rotate on its side, similar to how Uranus from our own solar system does. The dark side is a large ice-covered flatland while the light side is mountainous and rocky. Moon suggestions for Galleon would be greatly appreciated. Kale: A bluish rocky moon that orbits just outside of Galleon's rings. Zomg: A gas planet so large, its mass rivals that of a brown dwarf. It makes Jool look tiny by comparison and it has rings in a rainbow of colors. Unlike most gas giants, it has an ocean formed from the immense heat and pressure. Woh: A gas giant about half the sie of Jool that orbits Zomg. Hyperion: *Naming suggestions wanted* A Dres-sized rocky moon in orbit around Woh. It can be a bit tricky to encounter thanks to its moon. Dingus: *Naming suggestions wanted* A large moon placed in the perfect position to screw with missions to Hyperion. Sur: A boring asteroid-like moon in orbit around Woh in a mostly Geostationary orbit. Ched: A Moho-sized rocky, yellow moon that orbits Zomg with enormous craters and a few mountain ranges beneath a thick, yellowish atmosphere. Might make an integration for Environmental Visual Enhancements that adds a few layers of yellow clouds that hide the surface. Swish: A greenish-yellow rocky moon that has many craters on its surface. Glace: An icy moon in a highly eccentric orbit around Zomg. The decription will mention the possibility of a warm ocean beneath its icy surface. Herb: A dark green rocky moon with a surface peppered with large craters and deep, vast canyons. Kierra: A mountainous moon with a few peaks that rise above a thin atmosphere. Kyro: An oblong rocky moon with a high orbital inclination that makes a complete rotation approximately once every 30 minutes. Borag: An ice/snow-covered planet that features lakes and volcanoes that spit out ice instead of magma. It also features a very tiny set of beautiful cyan rings. Hiemal: An ice-covered asteroid-like moon in a distant orbit around Borag. Special thanks to @ProtoJeb21 for letting me use his planet pack's configs as a base so I could see how Kopericus works and understand how to begin making my own planet pack. Be sure to let me know what you think of my planet ideas thus far and do tell me how I can improve upon the Zaywa system.
