Thread: KSP - Graphic Enhancement

  1. #1

    KSP - Graphic Enhancement

    Since i havent found a dedicated thread yet and due to the fact that it is rather hard to find such modifications i decided to start this thread:

    It would be nice if people that enjoy enhancing the graphics of the game exchange knowledge and tips i will start by uploading some screenshots and things i found:

    Todo:
    - post what you used (+links if possible)
    - how you used it
    - Screenshots


    Things i used:

    ENB Mod
    (http://kerbalspaceport.com/enb/) + edited the config since i didnt like the extreme effects

    Universe Replacer
    (http://forum.kerbalspaceprogram.com/...-Replacer-v3-2)
    + Rareden Skybox (http://forum.kerbalspaceprogram.com/...l=1#post602535)
    + Mushroomman Cloud Pack (http://forum.kerbalspaceprogram.com/...914#post577914)

    Universe Replacer is one of the cooler mods to come along in a long while. I love finally having clouds (at least from orbit).

    Wow that looks awesome, I'll have to try those.

    Yeah i also like the clouds the problem is they are rather low res and will show up rather late - it would be nice to get them with a higher resolution and have them fade in sooner? (maybe someone knows a mod that does that)

    Also is there a reason why there is no specific graphical-enhancement section in the spaceport? It is rather odd to look for textures on reddit and be relinked to a thread with a few hundred posts.

    Honestly I don't like the clouds. They start out as white blotches on the surface and it looks terrible. Then when you get high enough for them to fade in you can tell plain as day that the textures are baked onto the surface. You can still see the terrain through the clouds and I just do not like it. But as for the skybox to each his own, but I want to say that the pics you posted OP are long exposure shots of the Milky Way. They are real, but the human eye would not see it as such. I'm using the realistic texture and it looks absolutely beautiful. That and the Jupiter texture for Jool. Both are a must have. I'll post some pics soon as I can.

    It's a shame about how bad the clouds look at lower altitudes. I wonder if they'll add official clouds soon.

    Im using this one

    http://forum.kerbalspaceprogram.com/...l=1#post574333

    Author states its a 2048 res.





    If you look closely you can see the Pleiades and Orion constellations.

    And these screenshots don't do it justice. Looks much darker then when I took them for some reason. Usually steam is good with resolution. Not so much this time If you want right click the image properties and past the url into your address bar. They look MUCH better.
