What is this?

This visual enhancement pack strives to give your stock system a facelift, with realistic clouds and atmospheres.

What Currently has Enhancements?

As of now, Kerbin, Eve, Duna, Laythe, and Jool all have Visual Enhancements be it clouds, atmosphere effects, or city lights (in Kerbin's case).

 



Known Issues:

  • Scatterer also has a few small bugs that im sure will be ironed out in the future. The KSC will sometimes be underwater, and this is totally normal. A scene change will fix it. (click the tracking station and exit it)
  • Scatterer does not show in the main menu.
  • Clouds do not show in the main menu with Kopernicus installed.

 

I WILL NOT PROVIDE SUPPORT IF YOU DO NOT PROVIDE ME WITH AT LEAST YOUR OUTPUT.LOG AND A SCREENSHOT OF YOUR GAMEDATA FOLDER.

Change Log

v1.2.5.0

  • Update for new Scatterer v0.0320
  • Removed sun flare completely. If you want a custom sun flare you will have to install one yourself
  • Duna's dust storms are no longer visible from scaled space to prevent artifacting
    • They are still present on the surface

TO INSTALL:

 

Optional (recommended mods)

 

 

If you are still experiencing any lag from the volumetric clouds, open the EVE GUI (alt+0) and look for the cloud layer you want to change in the cloud manager. Scroll down until you find the layerVolume section of the GUI and change the visibleRange value from 10,000 to a lower number i.e. 8,000/5,000/2,000 until you get the performance you are looking for. Thank you @Waz for this wonderful feature.

Thanks for your work, so all bundled means i could too bundle my RSS RVE files of EVE, RVE, Scatterer and dependencies? haven't found all the licenses of all of them, so I never provided my "OneFolderToInstallThemAll" solution for RVE.

Yes,  as long as the license permits.  Some licenses have specific instructions on how to share the mod so just make sure you follow it and all should be good.  Typically,  the README will have the license or it will have its own .txt file

Thats my prob, for one mod (I am not at home to check which) i found no instructions and the rest was either CC-do what you want with it but don't take money for it or MIT-do what you want.

I think it would help some people in this phase of development to just have to drop in one folder in their gamedata, will check tonight.

Yeah that's why I do it.  I don't have the patience to walk everyone through the install process

@Berlin Are you using commercial dropbox hosting? If using the free version I'd suggest finding another host as such a large package will quickly hit your download limits. Curseforge, Spacedock or Github are all good alternatives.

Yeah,  I planned on it.  Github(hopefully)  and spacedock will be up and running today and heck,  why not,  curseforge.  Thanks for the recommendations!

Very clean OP! Best of luck with this Berlin :) - I've seen a couple different iterations of SVE over the years and I hope your upkeep is just as revolutionary as the last :D

It's not actually my mod.  It's  called reentry particle effect.  It's too good to not play without!

xD Feel free to use them in any way you like :) - I've been maintaining them with the sole purpose of making them available for the next generation of kerbinauts. They've become a bit of a forgotten gem. It would be an honor if you included them in this wonderful mod. I'm sure it would make @Endraxial proud too.

Awesome!  They will be included when I upload to spacedock and curseforge today! Thanks so much

Hm... @Berlin I just took a peek at your download and I noted that it doesn't have TextureReplacer or Kopernicus. I'm curious, how do you intend to get the textures working? :confused:
