    I don't have any problems with the file size, but for all of the new stars, the flare is completely seperated from the actual star itself, as seen in the picture.


    Also for some reason Europa, Enceladus and some similar moons look a lot darker than they do in real life photos.

    That is a bug that only appears in the tracking station/map view. If you actually send something over there, the flares are not separated from the star.

    As for the moons being dim, keep in mind that the images you see of planets/moons, especially ones in the outer solar system, have been brightened so that features are more clear and so that the image is more appealing. I had to change the Sun's light intensity curve since by default the Sun's brightness extends infinitely.

    That's the same situation for me. The file takes a really long time and fails halfway through. Eventually when it finishes,  I load up ksp and it doesn't work because the installation was incomplete.

    Just so I can figure out if you two are experiencing the same problem, can you post a screenshot of your gamedata folder so I can make sure that you installed everything correctly?

    Also, it should take quite a bit for the file to download given that it's 1.2 GB

    Perhaps try quickly linking a dropbox or github link instead? 

    Here's a link to the same file but on dropbox. Tell me what happens

    That is so strange because I've downloaded it on two different computers and on both it works totally fine. I have no idea why this is happening if I'm honest. I'm going to try something tomorrow.

    Hey, I seem to be struggling to unzip the file, when I attempt with Winrar I get a warning message saying that "The archive is either in unknown format or damaged", and 7-zip isn't any better. I tried redownloading it but that also doesn't appear to be working.

    What is the size of the zip file?

    Do you have any plans to add some rogue planets or brown dwarfs? Cause that would be awesome!

    That is something I plan on doing. There are some pretty close by brown dwarfs such as Luhman 16 which I plan to add.

    Also, I do technically have a working version of REX 0.9, but I want to have some time to test through absolutely everything to make sure that everything is functioning properly, as there are some pretty major changes to REX coming.

  6. Just a little progress update: I've completed all atmospheres and scatterer configs. All I need to do is make sure those scatterer atmospheres and EVE clouds are properly scaled when using the stock system. I'm also having a weird problem where TRAPPIST-1b doesn't scale properly like all of the other exoplanets, so I need to figure out what I need to do to fix that. At this point, I am hoping to release this major update before Thanksgiving, release a minor update in mid-December, and then release a somewhat major update around Christmastime/New Year's.

    Glad to see this back. Did Valentine's orbit change? It looks a lot more elliptical. I might need to move it in my install (I am using JNSQ) since the periapsis is so close to the outer planets in JNSQ.

    Valentine's orbit did indeed change to reflect a slightly more realistic binary star orbit (most binary stars orbit each other rather elliptically). I'm assuming the reason why Valentine's periapsis is so close to the outer planets in JNSQ is because JNSQ is scaled up quite a bit but Extrasolar is not. However, I will create compatibility with JNSQ in the future.

    wait i've always thought lomina was more the mass of uranus or neptune why is it 5 times the mass of jool (jool is around 4e+24 kg and lomina is about 2e+25 kg)? has it always been like that??

    Lomina has always been like that. Lomina is basically if Neptune was the size of jupiter. Because Ice Giants are more dense, it means Lomina has a much greater mass than Jool despite having only a marginally larger radius.

    Good to know. I'm still flying around in the atmosphere for this save, and my clouds are still there.

    So it didn't break anything I can see, which is all I care about for now. It will be a while before I get there.

    Does it play nice with Research Bodies?

    Extrasolar should work with research bodies, but I haven't created fancy descriptions for when you discover something

    Yay it's back!

    Any recommended mods for getting to Valentine?

    If you want something that is extremely complicated and challenging, then KSPIE is the way to go. Otherwise, Near Future Propulsion and Photon Sailor are both good options.
