  1. Galaxies Unbound: A Stellar Odyssey Galaxies Unbound: A Stellar Odyssey, is the successor of Galaxies Unbound: Nova Kirbani and the infamous Kerbal Star Systems (KSS). Expanding the kerbal universe with 100 high quality exo-worlds for you to explore. Discover the vastness of one of the biggest handcrafted mods KSP has ever known. For those that want to visit the planets without the hassle of an interstellar trip, there is also Galaxies Unbound: HomeSwitch mode. This feature of Galaxies Unbound allows you to switch the stock system for one of the interstellar systems with a habitable world (each one with its own challenges). Destinations Compatibility Galaxies Unbound is compatible with: (!!Asking for compatibility with mod x will be ignored!!) Galaxies Unbound is not compatible with: Featuring Galaxies Unbound - KSP: STOCK Interstellar Mission to Cer Turi [Galaxies Unbound] by Heliocentric - Manned Interstellar Mission to Thythe by Temitelko44 - GU Unofficial Cinematic Trailer by Shbibe - Galaxies Unbound: Visiting every planet! (Nova Kirbani A) by ballisticfox Bugs and Questions Bugs might have been fixed by now but here's a list of bugs encountered while testing. - Zooming in trackingstation causes crafts to overheat and explode. (known bug - kopernicus) - FPS drop, reports of FPS drops are a general issue in 1.10 - 1.11 modded games. (under investigation) - Crafts on surface load in air (should be fixed) - Solarpanels pointing at wrong star (should be fixed) - Parts clip into terrain (known bug - kopernicus) For questions, feel free to post here or ask me on Discord. If you want to report a possible bug, please provide evidence (screenshot or (link to) logs). Keep in mind this mod is still growing, much more will be added and fixed. Requests, ignorant and hatefull behaviour will be ignored.

  3. Outer Planets Mod v2.2.9 This version of Outer Planets Mod has been built to work for KSP version 1.3.1 - 1.11.*. About The Outer Planets Mod is a mod that expands the outer edges of the Kerbol system to create something akin to the real Solar System's. It adds Kerbalized versions of Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto as well as several of these planets' moons. These faraway planets provide a challenge rarely encountered in Kerbal Space Program; you'll have to figure out new transfer windows, manage your power supply differently, provide your spacecraft with more Delta-V and be ready to travel years or even decades. This mod is being developed and maintain by a group of collaborators, alongside and following the initial development of the mod creator, CaptRobau. Features Explore 15 new highly detailed planets and moons, all in a stock-a-like artstyle. Discover never before seen worlds, such as a sub-satellite, Trojan moon or a set of binary bodies. Collect science in over 140 biomes, with almost a thousand unique science blurbs. Custom terrain textures and improved ground scatter has made planets and moons never look so good up close. A full set of KSPedia entries for OPM's various bodies helps you to navigate the far reaches of the Kerbol system. Includes a Level 4 Tracking Station upgrade (requires CustomBarnKit) to boost your communication range out to the furthest reaches of the system without requiring additional modded antennas. Extensive third-party mod integration means you can play OPM with a whole range of other mods. Download You can either manually download and install Outer Planets Mod via the button and installation instructions below or by installing it automatically via CKAN (first-party support of CKAN is provided and new releases should automatically be indexed by CKAN in due course). Installation Instructions Extract the GameData folder found in the downloadable .zip directly into your Kerbal Space Program install directory. If located correctly, the OPM and CTTP directories should be found at: \Kerbal Space Program\GameData\OPM & \Kerbal Space Program\GameData\CTTP Dependencies The following KSP mods must be installed prior to using Outer Planets Mod (ensure you install the correct version of the dependencies for your version of KSP): Kopernicus (depending on KSP version) Module Manager Community Terrain Texture Pack - bundled within OPM Supported Mods Custom Barn Kit Community Resource Pack Distant Object Enhancement PlanetShine Research Bodies Visual Mods By default, Outer Planets Mods does not come with any included visual pack to support EVE or Scatterer. There are a few mods that add these atmospheric visual enhancements to OPM as follows: Stock Visual Enhancements - Retextures the Gas Giants and adds atmospheric scatter and cloud support to all atmospheric bodies. Does not apply effects if Pood's OPM-VO is installed also. Pood's Outer Planets Mod - Visual Overhaul - Retextures the Gas Giants and adds atmospheric scatter and cloud support to all atmospheric bodies. Not been updated in a while so your mileage may vary.

  4. Beyond Home Beyond Home (BH) is the final chapter in the story of Kerbalkind. It can be played independently of Before Kerbin and After Kerbin. Billions of years after Kerbol exploded, a few colony vessels survived and found a new system to inhabit. The Tempus System. The Tempus System is a binary star system, slightly larger than the Kerbol System. The two stars Destiny and Fate orbit each other, almost like a slow dance. These stars are the heart of this expansive system. The Kerbals have begun the colonization of two celestial bodies: Rhode, the home planet, and its moon Lua. Rhode's gravity is slightly less than Kerbin's. Its atmosphere is slightly thinner. It's a lot more modest than what the Kerbals were used to billions of years ago, however it is still a beauty to marvel at. Your task is to explore the Tempus System and uncover its secrets. Beyond Home is a planet mod for Kerbal Space Program that raises the bar by achieving many things once thought impossible. Each planet has custom surface features that the player can explore. These can range from simple rocks to vast structures and crashed starships. Each planet has had at least a week (or more) of time dedicated to making it perfect for the player to explore. Beyond Home may sound easy, but leaving the home planet is no longer the challenge. The journey is what counts - especially what lies at the end of it. Your focus will not be learning how to fly, it will be putting those skills to the test in wild, unique environments never seen before. See the trailer here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K9llIkFVXAE Trailers There are a number of trailers for Beyond Home. Here is the main trailer and a few popular ones, including upcoming features: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K9llIkFVXAE - The main trailer https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zm6vzBzuGGU - Gas giant overhaul https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jRoTx2NC9Jc - Mining base https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h3_hijMmj04 - Cities https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y5PSsIbgoBs - The original trailer I also have my own career mode series where I play the planet pack as a player myself: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLKfbvijUql4RUpLsJLJ-Zdenn6ArbOPik World-Firsts Beyond Home is the first planet mod to feature a fully functional binary star system at its core. Not only this, but entire structures can be procedurally generated on each planet - yes, you can land on those floating islands. Beyond Home comes with its own visual suite, meaning you can finally bring out the most performance you possibly can with one of the most optimized planet mods in the community. As well as this, Beyond Home offers the ability to collect bonus science rewards from various biomes across every planet - you will know where the challenge lies. There is even the option for you to launch from the moon of the home planet to aid with the system expansion and exploration. This planet pack is entirely about exploration and discovering vast, dynamic worlds that actually feel alive. Structures that indicate that an alien race has been here before you exist. The lore is extremely extensive. And yes, there are easter eggs! Compatibility Beyond Home is compatible with (or provides support for) the following mods: Environmental Visual Enhancements Scatterer Rescale (The recommended rescale factor is 2.5 or 3.7) Distant Object Enhancement Kopernicus Expansion Sigma Replacements: Skybox Kerbal Konstructs Astrogator (Use for transfer windows!) KS3P Principia - Download the patch for Beyond Home here: https://pastebin.com/m2QAyA7S Beyond Home is not compatible with: External visual mods (SVE, AVP, SVT...) External planet mods (JNSQ, GPP, GPO...) Scale Beyond Home is built at the stock scale. Each planet has been hand crafted for use within Kerbal Space Program. Beyond Home avoids all of the pitfalls that the stock planet has and sustains incredible detail even at the stock scale. There is also support for Sigma Dimensions configurations, where the recommended rescale factor is 2.5x or 3.7x for a challenge. You can download Sigma Dimensions here: https://github.com/Sigma88/Sigma-Dimensions/releases Installation Please navigate to the following pages to download and install the version of each dependency for your KSP version: Required To Function Beyond Home - https://github.com/Gameslinx/BeyondHomePlanetMod/releases Parallax - https://github.com/Gameslinx/Tessellation/releases/tag/1.0.1 - DOWNLOAD PARALLAX 1.0.1, NOT THE LATEST VERSION Kopernicus (CHOOSE ONE): FOR 1.10.1 - https://github.com/prestja/Kopernicus/releases Upon starting the game YOU MUST go to settings and enable terrain scatters and turn the density up to 100% for key features of the mod to work!

  6. Salus: A J1407b Analogue [1.11] What does this mod add? Salus: A large gas giant out past Jool with the largest rings Kerbals have ever seen. It is thought that a close encounter with a rogue planet gave its orbit its inclination, as well as its current ring system. Visit soon, they're not expected to last for much longer. They've already begun collapsing into moons. Dauble: An icy world harboring a subsurface ocean, with plumes spraying out world-wide. Dauble is nested inside Salus's rings, providing quite the skyline. Dulus: A small moon orbiting rather close to Dauble. This flattened moon is collecting material from Salus's rings across its equator forming a massive equatorial ridge. Don't slip! Duran: A captured asteroid that orbits far from Salus, well past its rings. It's inclined orbit gives the best possible view of Salus. Be sure to bring your camera!

  7. Oh hai. This is a basic planet pack so far that adds a Near-Kerbin binary asteroid, Onor-Yuppo. They're basically asteroids that orbit near Kerbin, but Kerbin is on its way to catch up to them somehow. They're potentially hazardous, especially if Principia were to get involved. Onor's about 10 km big and has a giant red X on it. Yuppo is only 2 km big and is small enough to probably be deorbited with enough thrusting power. And so far, that's about it. I'll make more, but so far this is my first planet pack. Hopefully it will be better soon. Requirements: Kopernicus ModuleManager A good computer Known bugs: Onor PQS is incomplete After leaving Onor's SOI and time-warping, planets go off-rails To do: Add Pallas-Psyche-Vesta analog rich in metals Add science definitions and biome maps D-Magic and Distant Object Enhancement compatibility Fix those little dunce hats on Onor and Yuppo's height maps If you want to help alpha-test this, the link is here: Google Drive.

  9. Just a thread I thought this forum needed. Is Pluto still a planet? Kindly and respectfully share your thoughts about Pluto. I think @Pluto_Is_A_Planet might want to join in. (Sorry for "pinging" random users, but it's sort of for a reason)
  10. Remember how creating fake mods was a thing back then? Now it's time to make even more fake KSP stuff! This time, it's fake celestial bodies, rocket/spaceplane parts, and manufacturers. Btw, you can do either or both, it's up to you. My examples: Fake Celestial Body - Gerris: A planet slightly larger than Kerbin but smaller than Eve, it has green oceans, a green atmosphere, and yellowish brown land. It has aliens living on its surface. Orbits between Kerbin and Duna. Fake Part - The AEM-293 Solid Rocket Booster: A SRB that was created because we always need more boosters. Manufactured by Boosterz Co. Fake Manufacturer - Boosterz Co: A solid rocket booster manufacturer. Nuff said. Have fun making whatever your heart desires!
  11. The year is 9302. The Mun has been impacted by a huge asteroid and Kerbin is flooded. Begin on an evolved Kerbin. Its continents have moved, its mountains and topography vary drastically. Set many millenia after the Kerbals first took to space, the general culture of former 'Kerbin' has changed drastically. Because of this change, the planet is significantly different - it's known as Gaia and all interplanetary voyages are strictly forbidden by the global government - You must convince them to fly once more. The entire planetary system has overcome a drastic change. A near miss with another star has caused many planets and moons to be captured by Kerbol. Your adventure awaits; take to the stars once more and prove that the eagerly awaiting space-faring Kerbals still have a future. This mod adds more planets and moons to land on whilst keeping the stock feel to the game. I have revisited the entire Kerbin system and added a bit more variation to the different planets and moons, making you feel the joy of exploring them once again. DOWNLOAD FOR KSP 1.4.3 If you feel as if you enjoy the mod thoroughly, feel free, but not inclined to, leave a small donation in return. Thanks DISCORD: https://discord.gg/XmVp23s Installation Instructions: Gameslinx's Planet Overhaul is a planet mod for Kerbal Space Program. This mod is licenced under CC-BY-NC-ND 4.0.

  12. I've been working on a planet pack for quite some time now. I've made many planet textures by stitching together images from Google and Wilbur, but I can't figure out why they don't look as good as some other planet packs. For comparison, here's an image of a planet from my planet pack Precursors.... (Sorry about the lighting...it's much brighter in-game). And here's a picture of one [email protected]'s planets.... From a purely surface-based standpoint (subtracting EVE and Scatterer), Gameslinx's planet seems much more detailed and much larger when compared to my planet. Maybe it's just me, but is there something I'm missing that would improve the level of detail in my planet textures (aside from EVE and Scatterer)? Should I use higher-res pictures when making my textures, or...? Any suggestions are highly appreciated!
  13. Tilt'Em Adds planetary axial tilt for KSP planets Licence: MIT (don't even ask me for permission to fork it ) Download link Installation instructions Source code I always wanted to have planetary axial tilt with the default planets but I've always read that it was impossible to do it on unity. Principia managed to do it, but you have to use it's cool but complex n-body physics. This mod adds axial tilt to the default planets and keeps the default KSP 2-body physics. Follow the installation instructions to check how to install it and how to edit the planet tilts for each individual planet
  14. Technology has brought the kerbals far, but has not brought them a new home. Instead, it has destroyed their home, and forced all kerbals to move onto a singular habitation ring. After thoroughly looking through old data, they reluctantly chose Dominion, a dead planet in a dead star system, to be their new settlement. Upon landing it was immediately noted that the atmospheric oxygen levels were perfect for Kerbal life. Dominion reached a population higher than Kerbin's and every previous colony combined. It was a golden age for kerbals, but all good things must come to an end, and unfortunately death is a repeating trend in this strange system. What is Trilogy?

  15. Kerbal Mythology I've always thought about how the Kerbals see deities and other religious/mythological figures, and there isn't really much to go by in the game other than Moho and Bop. I took it upon myself to make a chart of mythological figures that I think the Kerbals may have worshipped. (In a way, this is a continuation of this forum thread). This is by no means a "standard" for Kerbal mythology, as I don't really expect most people to care too much about it anyway, meaning that these names and definitions are open. However, I did think it would be cool to share my ideas in this forum post, so keep reading if you'd like to know what I came up with. You are free to use this "model" of Kerbal Mythology for anything you want, these are just cool ideas I have (e.g., naming your ships, your missions, Kopernicus planets, etc.). I decided to model the deities after Greek and Roman mythologicial figures (unoriginal, I know). Similar to our own solar system, I made sure that the names of the figures coincided with the celestial bodies in Kerbal Space Program that had real-world counterparts. Obviously, stock KSP has a reduced solar system, so I wouldn't be able to do it with names made only by Squad. I decided to use the names of celestial bodies found in OPM and MPE, two high-quality mods that add "kerbalized" equivalents of real-world celestial bodies into the game. The celestial bodies that these two mods add counterparts for are named after Greek and Roman gods, so I was able to match up each god with the "Kerbal" version of their name. Even after doing so, there were still a number of Greek and Roman gods that didn't have Kerbal counterparts, so I made my own names that try to maintain the same style. I ended up adding one additional god that wasn't present in any of these mods or ideas, which was Alternis, the god of change and difference, from Alternis Kerbol Rekerjiggered. I also added the Kraken. One last thing; several of the deities have purposes or roles different from their Greek and Roman counterparts do. This is because I wanted their roles to make sense in the in-game universe. Legend: Green = Names made by Squad, found in the stock game. Red = Names found in Outer Planets Mod. (Credits to @CaptRobau) Purple = Names found in Minor Planets Expansion. (Credits to @Exo's Lab) Black = Names made by me. Credits to @NovaSiliskofor "Alternis". Name Greek/Roman Equivalent Role Kebus Phoebus Apollo God of reparation and solar power Moho Hermes/Mercury God of voyages, lava, and fire Eve Aphrodite/Venus Goddess of passion and deceit Duna Ares/Mars God of combat and explosions Dres Demeter/Ceres Goddess of cycles and dullness Jool Zeus/Jupiter God of the clouds Sarnus Cronus/Saturn God of time warping and fate Urlum Uranus/Caelus God of atmospheres and empty space Neidon Poseidon/Neptune God of the oceans Plock Hades/Pluto God of death and currency Krova Hera/Juno Goddess of Kerbalinas and family Vant Hestia/Vesta Goddess of spacecraft Alnerva Pallas Athena/Minerva Goddess of wisdom and missions Kortana Artemis/Diana Goddess of the wilderness Vulko Hephaestus/Vulcan God of engineering and building Bakos Dionysus/Bacchus God of food and celebration Zore Psyche/Anima Goddess of the soul Edas Eros/Cupid God of obsession Ervo Eris/Discordia Goddess of confusion Alternis None/Janus God of change and difference The Kraken None God of chaos and destruction Ike Phobos/Pavor Personification of fear and panic Deke Deimos/Metus Personification of terror

  18. Gilly Plus is a mod that remakes Gilly to be blue, fixes the timewarp crap and adds craters! just in case you ever suffer from Gilly-is-boring-and-not-blue-enough-itis! https://imgur.com/gallery/PEFIMGV Pics for Clicks Download: https://spacedock.info/mod/2046/Gilly Plus Kopernicus is the only dependency Also, this does remake Gilly's surface, so any spacecraft on Gilly should be launched into a stable orbit before downloading this mod.
  19. The Vulture System The Vulture Star is a main sequence star similar but more massive to Kerbol. It holds 6 planets, all with individual backstories. The Vulture System is my first ever full Kerbal Space Program project, taking about a month to complete. Github Repo Donate Bodies The Vulture System has 6 planets and 13 moons, making for a total of 19 celestial bodies in total. Features 19 detailed bodies with their own individual stories and high amounts of care put into creation. Two gas giants with detailed moons. Hints toward life and the previous existence of it in the system. Scatterer / EVE support. DistantObject support. PlanetShine support. Installation Requirements: Kopernicus (Should also work with the Bleeding Edge however unrecommended). The Mod Itself (Download Latest Release Here) Scatterer - Not technically requied, but due to an unfixable bug with Kopernicus is extremely recommended to prevent this from appearing. You simply need to install Kopernicus (and it's dependencies) + the Vulture System into your KSP's GameData folder. Vulture should work with 1.9.1+ Recommended Mods: EVE - Adds clouds to both Palleo and Desolation. Make sure to get the stock configs (BoulderCo Folder) for this too! Planet Shine - Makes your vessels reflect the colors of the planet. DistantObject - Makes the planets visible from a distance. Interstellar Extended - Interstellar travel parts. These mods follow a similar installation process. Credits Kopernicus Discord Server - Main place I went to for help and feedback. Great community. @Caps Lock - Made Vulture's sunflare and gave a lot of feedback. Support The best way to get support regarding Vulture is to make a reply on the forum thread (where you are now), or to make an issue on the github repo. Cool Screenshots Licence Squad requires all addons be released with a licence. Vulture is licenced under Apache License 2.0. For a basic rundown you can go here.
  20. [1.8.1 - 1.11] Tilt Unlocker Version 0.4: STARS AND GAS GIANTS ONLY Something that has never been implemented in the game and that a lot of people would love to see is axial tilt for planets. This actually has been incorporated into Principia but the problem is everything around (like the N-Body calculations) that are not needed for most people who still want to have axial tilt. So I have tried to implement that axial tilt with a light Kopernicus Plugin able to edit the rotation axis of any celestial bodies without PQS. I understand that it could be felt restrictive compared to Principia but making celestial bodies rotate without ground is way easier to do than bodies with solid grounds that are trickier to implement; but isn't it better than nothing? Compatibility This mod is compatible with Scatterer and Environmental Visual Enhancements (EVE), however, the last one requires you to manually set the clouds inclination from the EVE config file. Download Last version (Github) Source code (Github) Installation The installation of the mod is as simple as a usual mod, excepted that it depends on Kopernicus: Install Kopernicus (follow the instructions on the thread) Download the last version of the mod Copy the content of the downloaded GameData/ into your KSP's GameData/ You're done ! Configuration Here is a sample of a Kopernicus configuration for your planet. You can add it to a PQS planet, but it won't apply it. Not having the mod installed won't break the configuration nor the pack nor the save; it is only visual for now. This example will edit Jool's obliquity to 48° and its right ascension to 20° @Kopernicus:AFTER[Kopernicus] { @Body[Jool] { Inclination { // Rotation of the axis on the x axis (degrees), Earth is 27.5° obliquity = 48.0 // Rotation of the axis on the y axis (degrees), more information: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Right_ascension rightAscension = 20.0 } } } License This mod is under an All rights reserved copyright (Github, click to see the full license). However, anyone still has the right to: Include this mod in any other ones as long I am credited on the forum thread Edit for a personal use Update the mod and create a new thread if it is not compatible with the last game version and hasn't been updated for a year after the release of the said game version. Credits @blackrack who helped me a lot with the materials (stock rim and the Scatterer integration). @Thomas P. for helping me for years on any subject possible. Changelog 0.1: 26/04/2020 ADD - Changing the rotation axis of PQS-less bodies is possible ADD - Scatterer compatibility 0.2: 09/04/2020 ADD - Rings now automatically rotate with the body FIX - OnDemand was not loading textures 0.3: 12/09/2020 FIX - Pseudo-random axial tilt (actually depends of Kerbin's rotation) FIX - When landed on a moon of a tilted body, the tilted body went crazy (again due to Kerbin's rotation) FIX - The hidden original ScaledBody still had physics and interacted with the spacecraft causing random forces and such 0.4: 26/12/2020 FIX - The mod wasn't recognizing Kerbin if it was renamed ADD - Compatibility with the last version of Scatterer (0.0722)

  22. About Planet 9 (P9) is a KSP planet pack that adds the theorized 9th planet of the solar system plus it’s moon system into Kerbal Space Program. However, unlike other planet packs, this pack is entirely proceduraly generated. This also doesn’t mean that the pack’s textures are pre-generated. Infact, the pack download comes with no textures in it at all. Instead, it ships with a custom application that you need to use before being able to play the pack, that proceduraly-generates a new set of textures and models, just for you. Everyone who downloads and plays this pack, will play using a completely unique system of moons around Planet 9. You can even customize your moon system inside the application, and create the perfect system for yourself. This is accomplished through my "ProceduralPlanet" procedural celestial body generation software library. Though it is intended for general use in game development, I am using it here to produce this proceduraly generated planet pack for Kerbal Space Program. Currently, this project is still only a proof-of-concept and will receive further development. Therefore, any bug reports and suggestions are greatly appreciated. However, please note that only the textures and models of the major moons are proceduraly generated. Their physical characteristics and orbits are fixed, though they were determined initially by an algorithm as well. Screenshots Note: because this planet pack is proceduraly generated, the screenshots shown here only represent random examples of the generator's capabilities. Though the pack download does come with some default assets for Planet 9 due to technical reasons, none of the shown moons will appear in your game exactly as seen. As explained previously, your system will be completely randomly generated. Installation Planet 9 is a little bit more difficult install then your regular planet pack, due to the requirement of needing to run the procedural generator first. The download link below will contain a .zip file which, as you're probably used to, needs to extracted into your KSP install's GameData folder. This pack does require the "VertexHeightMap" Kopernicus Expansion from VabienArt’s fork of the Kopernicus Expansions, which can be found here: https://github.com/VabienArt/KopernicusExpansion-Continueder/releases However, a compatible build of this expansion should always be included with the download for this pack. Additionally, while this isn't a strict requirement, it is recommended to have OPM installed, simply so that Planet 9 actually is the 9th planet from Kerbol. You may also want to install an Orion Drive Mod. Just trust me on this. You will need it. Before being able to run your game, you need to run the procedural generation application to create the textures and models unique to your system. However, instructions on using the generator application would blow up this forum post. Instead, I have added usage instructions to the GitHub repository for this project, which can be accessed at this link: https://github.com/89Mods/Planet9/blob/main/README.md Please read the contents of this page very carefully! The generator application in a sensitive piece of software, and will not work at all if you do not follow the instructions to the letter! Visual mods This planet pack comes with scatterer configs for the two celestial bodies in it that have atmospheres. Otherwise, no other visual enhancement mods are utilized in this pack. Support If you have successfully ran the generator application, but cannot start your game, you must provide the Kopernicus log files, or I will be unable to help. If you are trying to run the generator application but get an error, you must show me the exact error message. If the generator application instead freezes with no error, ensure that you have correctly followed the usage instructions for the application. If you did and are still experience this problem, you can send me a message, and I will do my best to help. Licensing This planet pack and the generator application are published under the GNU General Public License v3. Download The current version of the planet pack is 1.1.1 for KSP version 1.9.1 and 1.10.x, and can be downloaded from the project’s GitHub page here: https://github.com/89Mods/Planet9/releases/tag/1.1.1 Please make sure to carefully follow the installation instructions above, as this is not a simple planet pack.

  23. hello kopernicus modders! i have a question for you guys, its whats the largest planet (or any celestial body) you have made with kopernicus! This is my largest planet, it is in my work in progress planet pack, it has a radius of 9,980 km but thats not the main thing that makes it cool. Its rings are crazy masssive! its rings are so large, that you can see them from kerbin (even at day!) its gonna to have one massive moon but i haven't coded it yet. but yea, what's the largest planet you made?
  24. Cerillion This mod adds a planet called 'Cerillion' to the Kerbal solar system, as well as it's four moons - Mavis, Shirley, Jacob and Disparia. Cerillion comes bundled with several configurations for other mods such as EVE, as well as hand-made textures, including an 8K cloudmap. Cerillion is entirely procedurally generated, has full science support as well as 15 unique biomes to explore. If that's not enough, we've got you covered! Cerillion has various strange geological anomalies to visit and fly through. It's orange atmosphere has a strange composition, but does contain enough oxygen for jet engines to function. Also, I love it when people make videos of this planet! Official Trailer Facts about Cerillion - a recordbreaking planet pack: - For the first time in history of KSP planet packs, a planet pack features easter eggs in the form of custom 3D models. - For the first time in the history of KSP planet packs, a planet pack features custom terrain scatter models (with working textures!)

  25. _____________________ Kerbol Origins _____________________ Welcome to Kerbol Origins, a mod that aims to recreate all the SQUAD planet ideas that never got implemented, like the Gas Planet Two (GP2), Gas Planet Three (that is actually a giant rocky planet) and many more. The mod has been fine-tuned to be as stockalike as possible and we made sure that it fills most of the gaps the stock Kerbol system has. Many of the celestial bodies added by this pack are proceduraly generated, which means that they have a lower memory footprint, but others use heightmaps and while they are not entirely procedural, they offer much more detail than the procedural ones. _____________________ Pictures _____________________ ( https://imgur.com/gallery/vKGxl7c _______________________ Recommended mods _____________________ - by Amarius1 - by Nils277 - by Valerian _______________________ Lets meet the new planets! _____________________ Faz: Harvest: Rega: Sarvin Keelon: Corolet: __________________________________ The team! ________________________________ @amarius1 - Original Owner & Lead Developer @Mythical Donuts - Developer @zherdev - Developer @Nils277 - Part Creator @Olympic1 - Career Compatibility & Tweaks @The White Guardian - Career Compatibility, EVE Clouds & Tweaks @smokytehbear - FF Ribbons @Eriksonn - Principia Compatibility And more! __________________________________ Thank you ________________________________ Thomas - For developing and mantaining Kopernicus.
