Threads of the Month: April 2023 Edition Kcalbeloh System Kcalbeloh System is a planet pack adding an entirely new black hole system with 30 unique celestial bodies, including a super-massive black hole, 4 stars, 15 planets, and 10 moons and asteroids, each with its own unique set of challenges and features. This planet mod provides a diverse range of environments for Kerbals to explore, such as a planet with surface torn apart by tidal force, binary gas giants with multiple moons, a planet tidally locked by its parent star, and a small moon with a twisted surface. Like the movie Interstellar, there are also a pair of wormholes available for Kerbals to jump between Kerbol system and Kcalbeloh system, adding another layer of exploration and excitement. If you're looking for an exciting and rewarding space adventure, Kcalbeloh System is an excellent addition to Kerbal Space Program, providing tens or even hundreds of hours of entertainment. I really appreciate everyone who has followed this mod. Also thanks to everyone who has provided suggestions, bug reports, or any other forms of help. Also, if you have a cool idea and want to contribute to this project, feel free to let me know. Get ready to blast off into the cosmos and embark on a thrilling journey through the Kcalbeloh System. Happy launchings! Trailer System Map Are you sure you want to spoil it? Celestial Body List: Gallery Installation System Requirements OS: Windows Only Memory: 8 GB RAM Graphics: 1-2 GB VRAM Install Manually Install Kcalbeloh System Download (choose one): GitHub 百度网盘 (for Chinese players) Delete the privious version of Kcalbeloh System completely if you have an older version installed. Extract the zip file and put all the three folders in /GameData (000_NiakoUtils, KcalbelohSystem and KopernicusExpansion) to your [KSP installation folder]/GameData/ folder. Install Dependencies Kopernicus: for creating custom celestial bodies. Singularity: for blackhole and wormhole shaders. KSPCommunityFixes: for bug fixes. Install Visuals The planet pack works fine without visual mods, but it will lose a HUGE part of its aesthetic. EVE Redux: for clouds, dust storms, and auroras. Scatterer: for realistic atmosphere, oceans, and sun flares. After Installation (Please read!) In KSP 1.12.x, the stock maneuver planning tool can cause severe lag/stutter in planet mods, so it's strongly recommended to disable it: Press ESC in game and press the 'Settings' button. Then disable the maneuver tool in the setting menu, under KSP Community Fixes section. See below: Installation Checklist After a complete installation, the GameData folder should at least have the following contents: 000_Harmony 000_NiakoUtils EnvironmentalVisualEnhancements KcalbelohSystem Kopernicus KopernicusExpansion KSPCommunityFixes ModularFlightIntegrator Scatterer Singularity ModuleManager.4.2.2.dll Compatibility Kcalbeloh System provides support with: Environmental Visual Enhancements Scatterer Parallax (Needs Parallax Stock Textures) Community Resource Pack SpaceDust Kerbalism PlanetShine Kcalbeloh System is compatible with: Most visual mods (AVP, Spectra, SVE...) Most planet mods (Beyond Home, OPM, GPP...) RealSolarSystem, but requires some minor adjustments. See the next session. Principia (WIP, in the recent alpha release) How to make it compatible with RealSolarSystem? Download RSSKopernicusSettings.cfg in the download page. Put it to Kerbal Space Program/GameData/RealSolarSystem/ and replace the original file. Install Sigma Dimensions. Note: When installing Kcalbeloh System and RealSolarSystem together, 10x rescale will be forced on Kcalbeloh System. Mod Settings Go to [KSP installation folder]/GameData/KcalbelohSystem/ and open Kcalbeloh System Settings.cfg. Wormholes Wormholes = : whether to have wormholes connecting stock solar system and Kcalbeloh system. True: (default) enable the wormholes. False: disable the wormholes. Home Switch HomeSwitch = : whether to move KSC to Kcalbeloh system. False: (default) keep KSC on Kerbin. Suluco: move KSC and other launch sites and airfields to Suluco. Efil: move KSC and other launch sites and airfields to Efil. Home switch is NOT compatible with system-replacement planet mods (Beyond Home, GPP, RSS, etc). Do NOT load any saved game after changing home switch setting. Distance DistanceFactor =: moving Kcalbeoh System closer or further to stock system. 1: (default) keep the default distance (271.8 Tm). 0.1: 0.1x default distance. 10: 10x default distance. 100: 100x default distance. Rescale Rescale = : rescale the system to 2.5x or 10x size. 1: (default) No rescales applied. It has the same scale with stock system. 2.5: 2.5x scale. If JNSQ is installed, this value will be forced. 10: 10x scale (realistic scale). If RealSolarSystem is installed, this option will be forced. This setting needs Sigma Dimensions installed. When homeswitch is on, rescale is automatically off because it can cause issues when enabling both. RescaleAll = : Whether to apply rescale to all celestial bodies in game. True: (default) Rescale applied to all celestial bodies in game, including Kerbol system, Kcalbeloh system, and all the other planet packs. False: Only apply rescale to Kcalbeloh system. If JNSQ or RSS is installed, this option will be forced. Skybox DisableSkybox = : Whether to disable the skybox bundled with Kcalbeloh System. True: Disable the skybox bundled with Kcalbeloh System. Set it to True if you don't like this skybox. False: (default) Use the skybox bundled with Kcalbeloh System.

FAQs Does it replace the Kerbol system or add a new system? It adds a new system without any change to the Kerbol system. But it also offers home switch options which allow you to move KSC to habitable planets in Kcalbeloh system. For more information on home switch, click here. Is it based on the movie Interstellar? Yes, but no. Although some ideas of the mod are inspired by Interstellar, the goal of the mod is not to facsimile the Gargantua system from Interstellar, but to create a unique star system. Is it compatible with other planet packs? Yes, it is compatible with most planet packs but it still needs further testing. Let me know if you have any issues. Is it compatible with Real Solar System? Yes, but you need to download a config file. See here. Is it compatible with other visual mods? Yes, it is compatible with most visual mods for stock system, such as Astronomer's Visual Pack, Spectra, and Stock Visual Enhancement. What is a wormhole? How can I use it? A wormhole is a structure linking disparate points in spacetime. In KSP, a wormhole functions like a celestial body with its mass and SOI. To traverse the wormhole, you need to lower your periapsis below 30 km. After you reach the periapsis, you will jump to the other star system.

Yra Planet Pack
NathlessOne posted a topic in KSP1 Mod DevelopmentHi! Welcome to the Yra planet pack, the first planet pack where the blackhole has a green accretion disc! (atleast i think) Normally, a green accretion disc on a black hole is impossible, and it applies here... So what really is Yra- So, what can you expect to see in Yra? Well, heres what you can expect: A black hole with planets orbiting it a-la-Interstellar A bunch of systems, each being different! A bunch of planets and moons! The stuff i will make are this: Yra itself https://docs.google.com/document/d/1DrTHdWe8qEu3qFVXA_BTilLeqH3txwjfZclsltmgQl8/edit?usp=sharing Uropa system: the home system! https://docs.google.com/document/d/1-xeqb-oV9cGY3Pzs_beio3B4f1aa9nRMLmsNhyNi-_M/edit?usp=sharing Everything is subject to change, new systems could be added and deleted, etc. As for any downloads, i will be releasing demos/betas as i develop more of the systems. Here is where i will put it: I really do hope you guys will enjoy it as much as i will enjoy developing it!
Cosmic Anomaly Discussion
SSTO Crasher posted a topic in Science & SpaceflightThis thread is a place for all astronomy geeks to discuss cosmic anomalies, these could be weird cosmic objects like neutron stars, black holes, and the theoretical quasi stars, or it could mean interesting physics principles or recent strange discoveries.
This mod adds the kerbalized version of the Gargantua System from movie Interstellar to your game! The main feature of the mod is the proper black hole/pulsar effects providen by a separate from Kopernicus plugin. So, let's take a look at the system! Kargantua - a supermassive black hole at 1573560320km distance from Kerbol. Gravity - 100g Radius - 80 000km Limmer - a large tidally locked Laythe-like planet. The 90% of the surface on this planet is covered with vast ocean, only The Great Volcano is exposed. Gravity - 1.4g Radius - 480km Namm - an icy planet without oxygen atmosphere but surprisingly covered with pine trees... Gravity - 0.62g Radius - 339km Pantagrool - a rapidly spinning pulsar Radius - 30km Gravity - 35.8g Admun - a desert planet with oxygen atmosphere Radius - 280km Gravity - 0.125g Jopa - a small asteroid that sometimes passes very close to Kargantua Radius - 5km Gravity - 0.0001341g Included mods: -Kopernicus -Scatterer -EVE DOWNLOAD: The mod: https://spacedock.info/mod/1255/Kargantua System [WIP] The volumetric disk patch: https://www.dropbox.com/s/bdsfwedxv5c25ji/VolumetricDisk.zip?dl=0 The license is CC BY-NC-ND 3.0 The DiskController plugin source: https://www.dropbox.com/s/dicbc5wfrhlay2j/DiskController.cs?dl=0 If you like my mods then you can leave a small donation, it really helps me out!

Black Holes and Neutron stars. Evidence found?
Guest posted a topic in Prelaunch KSP2 Discussioncould we see Black Holes and/or neutron stars in KSP 2? I was going to add this to suggestions in KSP 1 and 2 but I decided that KSP 2 is more of the interstellar type and that if Black Holes where going to be in KSP 2, the devs would have decided by now. But if the Devs have decided to, how hard is it to implement into a game? Thoughts and theories are welcomed! Evidence:
We live inside a black hole
Matteo Bellomo posted a topic in Science & SpaceflightHello everyone, a few days ago I thought on a theory (the mine one), we could probably live inside a black hole, here's why: The big bang was a sort of an explosion, like a super massive Star colliding on itself making an explosion and the remaining is a black hole, the explosion that has happened that time was the supernova, and the black hole is our universe, then, the matter that black hole "sucks" transforms (inside our universes) into galaxies and stars, this is because it is expanding, and this even means that inside our universe the time goes slower, instead out of it, the time goes faster, this is because when something go near or inside a BH its time slows, because of this our universe expansion slower. The death will be very slow because of Hawking radiation, when the universe will stop expanding it will become always smaller, because of its radiation. This mean that all of our BH in our universe are other "universe", then the multiverse exist, and then, there could be other black holes in other black hole and goes like this. The problem is now to understand what is the first universe o_O I need answers :)

Should I publish my Black hole as a mod?
KerbalMan23 posted a topic in KSP1 Mods DiscussionsShould I make a black hole mod? Or publish one in this case. Here is a image. http://images.akamai.steamusercontent.com/ugc/267224187171411630/1784154A2CA09F0D909787E7B4D616275A5C214C/
Black Holes, what we thought 40 years ago
mielgato posted a topic in Science & SpaceflightGreeting Kerbals Reading stuff about space is kinda a passion for me, be it actual science discoveries, or sci-fi. A little while ago, I was tidying my house, and stumbled upon a 38 year old book, called "GREAT MYSTERIES: Mysteries of the Universe" By Stemman, Roy, Published by Aldus Books in 1978. Mind you, the book is 12 years older than me (it was a gift from my grand-ma) and while I strongly suspect it to be mostly "popular science" with some sci-fi toward the end, rather than actual science publication, it is still a great read. In this book, they relate theories about black holes, and one in particular caught my attention, be ready : "Scientist could possibly create tiny black holes within a terrestrial laboratory. However, If they happens to succeed, the result would be catastrophic; According to the British professor, John Taylor : "A black hole with a mass of 1600tonnes, if left alone, would quickly sink toward the center of our planet, eating it rather swiftly, and us with it. And for good measure, Taylor added :" Even if there is a single black hole in our galaxy, then our futur is really dark, as it'll end up devouring us all." (Please excuse me if it's not the exact same text, as mine is translated in french, so I had to re-translate in english for the forum ) (We of course know this is partly wrong, as we had unknowingly a supermassive black hole in the center of our galaxy for billions of years, and by today's knowledge, it IS a fact, probably he meant on the long run, but we also do know that our sun will die out waaay before the milky way's black hole swallow us, sooo not really a problem, we also know that there is millions of smaller black holes everywhere in the galaxy, remnant of collapsed giant stars if I'm not wrong) They also suggest that if a spaceship could go through the Schwarzschild radius of a Black Hole without being reduced to space dust from the tidal forces, the spaceship would end up in a different universe. If the spaceship went through the same black hole he came from, it would end up in yet another universe, and another, and another, without being able to ever come back to it's origin. Keep in mind the following : "Our readers will understand that 'Black Holes' are purely the result of mathematical speculation, and is not based on any sort of evidence." which was probably true when the book was published. Given today's standard and knowledge about these mythical beasts, do you think a black hole weighting less than a Frigate class warship, could survive hawking radiation and eat through the earth ? (hmm, let me rephrase : What if a proton suddenly weighted 1600tonnes, would it become a self sustainable black hole ?) How about black holes being wormholes toward another universe ? (no this isn't another OMAGAD LHC IS GONNA DOOM US ALLL!!!1111)
PB666 posted a topic in Science & SpaceflightI was going to put this in cool sciency stuff, but . . . . . Heres a question, if a black hole is not exactly at the center of rotation of a galaxy, is it a polynary stellar system? sort of like alpha-centauri, except having a central star it has a central BH.
A Quick Question on Event Horizons
cubinator posted a topic in Science & SpaceflightI've been playing with Space Engine, and the new black holes show warping realistically. I have been experimenting, flying by and into black holes, and I found that the universe seems to invert itself as you fall into it, and you see a disc with all the stars and around you is blackness. Then the disc shrinks to nothing. Here is a series of images showing a descent: My question is: Is this the event horizon? Or is this the event horizon? If I shined a laser towards the disc here: Would the laser escape? Clearly light can enter this far, but am I actually inside the black hole, past the point of no return? Space Engine indicates that I'm still some distance from the black hole's surface, but it's a little wonky with these objects.
