Sido's Urania Planet Pack

is a really light and very optimized planet pack (less than 80 Mo for 7 new planets and 8 moons) I'm creating for Kopernicus.

Thanks a lot to Thomas P. for this fantastic mod and his support :)[/TD]

[TD]Urania ? Does it look like a pee planet?

Well, actually, it looks more like Uranus :wink:

Seems to be cool, but how many celestial bodies does this beauty have?

Currently, there are 6 planets around the gas giant Urania and 8 moons around these planets, a total of 15 new celestial bodies in total :confused:

And where in the kerbol system is it?

It is on a 2° inclined orbit at 46 millions kilometres of the sun. It's just after Dres' orbit and just before Jool's orbit. Not so far away!

The kerbal scientists think that Dres was an old moon of Urania and she has escaped from its orbit :cool:

Arggg I can't wait, where can I download this pack ?

>> How can i thank you ? How can i support you ? <<

It's really important for me : actually, i'm living only of my numeric creations and i really spend a lot of time making this pack the best that I can, so if you use my pack and love it,

why don't support me and this project with a little paypal donation ? (Even a little one, i really appreciate it :kiss:)

What is Sido's Urania Planet Pack ?

It's a planet pack I'm creating with Kragrathea's Planet Factory Creators Edition mod.

Thanks a lot to him for this fantastic mod :)

First of all, you need to download this mod to use this pack!

Nothing else?

  1. The pack comes with two folders:
    • The "Urania folder" to put in your PlanetFactory's CE folder.
    • And a "clouds folder" for the BoulderCo Clouds plugin. Not necessary but strongly recommended

[*]You can use Kethane without any problems

How can I thank you?

I really spend a lot of time making this pack the best that I can.

You can pay me a glass of wine via a little paypal donation (I'm french, I like wine!) but if you want to pay me a beer it will be cool too :kiss: I really appreciate it :)

I seem to have a problem,

In the Log it says:

Error creating planet Urania

Exeption: The given key was not present in the dictionary.

I've tried a Fresh install of both Planet factory CE and your mod.

Any Ideas?

Ahh I see, I hadn't known I needed to load the Sentar expansion too.

I got it to work another way, by modifying the Urania.CFG planet template from Sentar to Jool.

Looks exactly the same judging from your pics, but don't have to Load Sentar.

I'm running a bunch of mods, is this mod memory intensive? I would really hate constantly hitting out of memory errors :/

Planet Factory and especially the Planet Factory Creator's Edition is VERY memory intensive, so yes

I've always wanted a set of planets where Dres is. That area is a void for me, only entered in transit to Jool. Can't wait to try this. I note that in the screenies, some of the orbits look VERY inclined. I'll have to examine that closer. I like how you matched Urania's orbit to make Dres look like it really did escape the system just barely.

Thank you captain.

In the first version of the pack, Urania was after jool.

but i would create a lot of moon with ocean, so it was not so realistic :D

So I decide to put near the Dres orbit.

Remember, if you don't like an orbit you can edit it in the .cfg of the specified body :wink:

Yes. ScanSat works by generating the map as it pulls it from PQS, rather than revealing a preshaded map. It will work on any body with a heightmap. Kethane automatically generates deposits on all planets (planets can be weighted to have more or less manually). There's no reason either should not work.

It's not so much a personal dislike, but rather a bit of a realism issue. Planetary systems don't form on high inclinations. Bop is the highest inclination in the stock game at ~13.4 degrees.

This explains it better than I can (i'm not gonna embed the whole video, takes too much space):

Ok,

1. Is there a big frame rate drop/performance drop/reduction in part count I can use before my computer begins to die?

2. I see that you get Sentar too. Does it also come with the extra suns? I dislike them and their nonsensical orbiting :D no offence Krag!

3. Is the blue bit on Ares water or blue rock?

4. Does science work? Will science ever work?

Also, you should call the gas giant Urectum instead :)

Interesting. I'll have a try and see if it fits in RAM with all the mods.. That will spice up my next Grand Tour.

I'm actually running it with this list of mod without problems and 8 Gb of Ram :

The loading is long, especially when the Planetfactory create the celestial bodies, but it work.
