  1. This is actually the best mod. Edit: BTW, this reminds me of the fun mechanic utilized in Stellaris. It would be awesome if KSP had a lore-friendly mod with chance / resource / career based decisions during the missions with small rewards.
  2. Gotta miss the terrain feature. Is it ever coming back?
  3. I miss the terrain feature.

    Astronomer's Visual Pack: BEYOND KERBAL

    Not sure if I should use a modular structure again or just make one good build. Either way, if you don't install TextureReplacer the skybox will stay stock. Edit: No, I decided to hold off on that for now. I might release a closed beta later.
  5. Hey there! I just started a thread which doesn't have much atm, but I guess it's a start. Edit: How do I link a user?!
  6. How do I quickscope add an album inside a post? I'm guessing you can't on these new forums. Anyways, this is the official album which will change a lot over time. CONFIRMED FEATURES - BEING UPDATED New super-ultra-mega-high quality city textures now span Kerbin. Mind the traffic! The Kerbol system is now drifting through a majestically colorful nebula! 2048x2048 4096x4096 volumetric snow particles that showcase the stinging fury of the frozen poles. 8k auroras have been reimagined with volumetric support! A new "UHD" volumetric cloud variant that will put your NASA supercomputer to a real test! Dust storms on Duna have been reworked. The clouds on both poles have been removed due issues with shadows & volumetric lighting. Loading... Modpage

    [1.3.0] Andromeda Visuals: Daydream [0.3.5]

    Hey, guys! Thank you for keeping the mod alive! As you probably all know I'll be releasing a new version soon for 1.2 (on the same mod page, will start a new thread). I've already reworked snow and will bring back lightning as an optional feature. I can't think of a way to make rain with playable performance, but I'll try. I'll link to the windowshine mod from within the pack as one of the recommended mods though. Matchlight, it's up to you if you wanna lock this thread, but if you wanna keep working on this version as a stand-alone that's fine. Maybe rename it to something like "Matchlight's Astronomer's Visual Pack"? Who knows, maybe 10 years from now there's gonna be a thread called "Aleph Null's Sagan's MLG420Illuminati's CenaKiller99's Gelileo's Matchlight's Astronomer's Visual Pack", but probably not. If you guys have a great suggestion do let me know! Update: Like Galileo said though - it's best we leave rain up to blackrack.
  8. Yes. Ignore those for now it's not nearly finished.
  9. I don't have any substantial bug to report, but I've experienced what I suspect is a well-known issue. However, personally I haven't noticed anyone post pictures pointing it out. The UV texture causes lines such as this all over the layer. The strength of these lines seems to be slaved to the strength of the UV texture. There seems to be no way to make them disappear completely without setting the UV strength to 0. UPDATE: Forgot to mention that it doesn't seem to matter whether you use a custom texture or not.
  10. Great update. I haven't experienced any issues so far, besides this one on Duna. UPDATE: This seems to be one of the things caused by GUI changes.
  11. Love the station parts! O_O Good work, ctn!
  12. As much as I wish to keep the wishes of Nhawks17, I must clear up the fact that I have never stated that Galileo has stolen from me or has committed fraud against me. I understand the perspective you are coming from, but to quote myself here - I have made it very clear that it is not only my pack I am talking about: "a lot of assets originate from my visual pack, as well as other packs (please correct me if I'm wrong)". I could recognize the rest of the individual assets, but I did not know that they were all from Nhawks17's pack. And secondly I have made it much clearer that this is not a direct attack of person, but of the case at hand: "I merely wish to state my views on art and how I think should evolve over time.", "I respect you, as well as your decision to use these assets as they fall under the license which I had included in my pack. However my upcoming release will fall under a different license.", "If you are wondering if I am ever going to hold you up for this, my answer is no", etc. Once again: to say that I have an issue with Galileo is to get as far from truth as Saganly possible.
  13. I see what you're saying. If a mod needs to edit my post so be it. I don't see what a stale 2009 meme has to do with anything I said. Nevertheless, for evidence look below. I did not want to do this, but from the best of my ability, this is the list of files which originate in some way from my pack: Joolalto.dds - literally the same as altostratus.png texture with some opacity differences. This one stood out to me the most because it is the least modified from the one that's in my pack. From the best I can tell, AuroraDetail.dds has the same detail textures as my detailAurora.png. duststorms.dds Hard to say if it was made from scratch or is just extremely similar to storm.png from an older release of AVP. The kerbin textures look similar, but I believe Nhawks made these (Low.dds and duna1.png). I'm very jealous to say the least. Before I forget, I just want to point out that I admire the Storm.dds idea. Similar but very weak case with Mars2.dds and kerbin1.png. atmo.dds is identical to detaileve1.png. I am assuming it does the same thing, but since this image is basically a white square I can only wonder who came up with this idea first. Not that I personally care, about this one but there it is. Some other images look similar, but this is clearly because we have derived them the same way. Is this the case for the rest of the images? I doubt it, but it's been too long at this point for me to remember exactly how I made each texture. Majority are nothing like the textures I have, and once again I'm jealous. But these few irrefutable cases made me ask questions and raise positive discussion. If you already cannot tell, coming back I am currently overwhelmed by nostalgia and desire to create. I sincerely apologize for bringing more attention than warranted over this. If anyone has answers or smosh videos please post them because now that I've laid out the evidence, I am as equally lost as the rest of you wonderful people following this story on as to what happened here.
