    [0.24.2] Better Atmospheres [V5 - June 14th, 2014]






    Hello one and all, welcome to the Better Atmospheres release page.
    Better Atmospheres is mainly an EVE pack, however, it uses other things such as RSS and Texture replacer. Created by the config work of Thesonicgalaxy, the wonderful art by Erona, and some of the stuff EVE comes with.

    What does this mod do?

    Well my friend, it uses EVE, RSS, Texture replacer, and Custom Asteroids to improve the Kerbol System.



    Atmospheres from space



    Using EVE, atmosphere's from space are much more noticable and have quite an effect on the land below.





    Atmospheres from ground



    Atmospheres from the ground are also improved, no more white on kerbin!





    New Kerbin clouds



    Kerbin now has less clouds than before, and high altitude wispy ones. Enjoy sunny days and flying through more than just one patch of clouds.





    Ring Systems with asteroids



    Jool has been equiped with a Ring System, as well as trackable asteroids to land and possibly set up bases on.





    Aurora Borealis



    Kerbin, Eve, Jool, and Laythe all have their own unique aurora. Eve being a Dark Blue. Kerbin being a mix of Green, Blue, and purple. Jool being a mix of Blue and yellow. Finally Laythes being a Dark Green.





    Realistic white Kerbol with new flares



    Kerbol now has been turned white, a much more realistic color. New flares are also included.





    Finally, here's a trailer of it all in action.




    Looks great! What do I need to use this?

    The full package comprises four standalone parts:

    EVE for the clouds and atmosphere effects:

    What's the RSS for? Do I need RSS too? I don't want changed planets! :C

    No need to fret! The only thing RSS does is change the Atmosphere from ground. So no new planets or anything funky like that.

    Looks like I've found a bug. Where can i report bugs?

    In the development thread which can be found here -
    http://forum.kerbalspaceprogram.com/...37#post1091137

    What if I don't like the look of something?

    That's fine. It IS a config pack, you are always able to change things. Hit alt+n in game and you can enter the GUI. Mess around to your hearts content.

    What if I have a suggestion for the pack?

    Perfect! Simply put that in a post in either thread listed above. I LOVE feedback as it gives me a chance to improve this pack for both the experience for you, and me!

    Who do I need to thank?

    Erona(The wonderful art), Rbray(EVE, the whole reason this pack exists.), and NathanKell(RSS).
    They have all been very helpful in the making of this pack and it would not be where it is without them.

    Anything else?

    That's everything!
    Now load up KSP and have a jolly good time!
