  1. 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!

You can download it in both light and dark modes at incredible resolutions and finally know just how much fuel you're spending Donations I have developed Beyond Home almost completely by myself, keeping outsourcing to an absolute minimum. As of writing this forum page, I have worked on Beyond Home almost every day for just over a year. In 2020 I will not have as much time to develop the mod because I will be in university. Donations are by no means asked for, but are greatly appreciated. Thank you for downloading the mod or if you're a long time supporter, thank you for sticking with it throughout its development Support If think you have encountered a bug you will only get support if you submit screenshots or your KSP log file.

  2. Wabi Sabi - Perfect Imperfection The Overview: Wabi-Sabi. A word that has held prevalence in Japanese culture for centuries. A word that holds so much meaning and depth, it lacks a proper translation into English. It means the acceptance of transience and imperfection, and appreciation of beauty that is imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete in nature. Wabi-Sabi holds an appreciation of both natural objects and forces of nature, appreciating austerity, modesty, intimacy, asymmetry and roughness. Our planets easily fit this brand. Instead of embracing perfect spheres, habitable planets, perfect and balanced solar systems, we have a different unique approach. Each of our bodies has something unique to offer. In this mod, you won't cheat orbit around each body, or just observe from afar in tracking station, but be motivated to say "I want to go there for myself", and furthermore, "I want to stay here and keep coming back". Planets are unique experiences. They shouldn't be one off screenshot generators, but full of worth, value, and creativity blended with realism. Everything from a super-kerbin with exotic ammonia based life, to a lonely vacuum planet should have a relatively similar amount of value and unique content. If you want solar systems crammed with content, uniquely hand crafted planets, with plenty of gameplay, offering new challenges and reasons to explore, then this is it. Quality > quantity. No filler. In-depth lore and story that will send you on an odyssey spanning the small cluster of stars you find yourself in, somewhere between galaxies. Coming soon™️.

  5. Please Notice: This mod is still in development and NOT READY FOR REVIEW. Currently you are free to share screenshots and videos of the mod, but you need to include a claim that this mod is still in development and the current version is NOT representative of the final product. During beta test, I can not garentee the stability of the mod, so use it at your own risk. It is recommended to back up your savings before you load them with this mod. Any suggestion and bug report will be genuinely appreciated. More discussions can be seen in my discord server. Celestial Bodies List Screen shots Installation Install Manually Install Kcalbeloh System Download GitHub SpaceDock If you are updating this mod, make sure you delete the previous version completely before installing the new version. Install Dependencies Kopernicus: for creating custom celestial bodies. Singularity: for blackhole and wormhole shaders. Install Visuals The planet pack works fine without visual mods, but it will lose a large part of its aesthetic. EVE Redux: for clouds, dust storms, and auroras. Scatterer: for realistic atmosphere, oceans, and sun flares. For KSP 1.12.x In KSP 1.12.x, the stock maneuver tool can cause severe lag/stutter in planet mods, so KSPCommunityFixes is STRONGLY recommended. To fix this issue, you need to: Install KSPCommunityFixes. Disable the stock maneuver tool in the in-game settings menu. Installation Checklist After a complete installation, the GameData folder should at least have the following contents: EnvironmentalVisualEnhancements KcalbelohSystem Kopernicus KopernicusExpansion ModularFlightIntegrator Scatterer Singularity ModuleManager.4.2.1.dll Mod Settings Compatibility 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.

  6. Outer Planets Mod v2.2.10 This version of Outer Planets Mod has been built to work for KSP version 1.3.1 - 1.12.*. 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.

  7. Endless expanse: DOT-33 is the first part of an eventual galaxy. The current system (DOT-33) is a binary star system consisting of a yellow dwarf and an orange dwarf, each with their own system. So, will you be able to survive the endless expanse? https://spacedock.info/mod/2936/Endless Expanse: DOT-33 To all of the people who supported me during development, thank you. See you in the full release -TheOrios CC-BY-NC-ND
  8. 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. Proceed with the following install instructions: Download Kopernicus - https://github.com/Kopernicus/Kopernicus/releases/ Download CTTP - https://github.com/Galileo88/Community-Terrain-Texture-Pack/releases/ Download EVE - https://github.com/WazWaz/EnvironmentalVisualEnhancements/releases/ Download Scatterer - https://github.com/LGhassen/Scatterer/releases/ Download SigmaReplacements https://github.com/Sigma88/Sigma-Replacements/releases/ Download INSTANTIATOR - https://spacedock.info/mod/1624/INSTANTIATOR/ You MUST remove "ExampleConfig.cfg" from the Instantiator folder or it will not work Download GPO - https://github.com/Gameslinx/Gameslinx-Planet-Overhaul/releases Install ALL of those mods correctly - this should be as simple as dragging the correct folder to GameData unless stated otherwise. After that, launch the game in 64 bit. The above photograpah is not ingame imagery
  9. Oh hai. This is a basic planet pack so far that adds a Near-Kerbin binary asteroid, Doppler-Dyva, a Pallas-like two-toned potato, Quazen, and four binary Jool trojans. Basically asteroids not filled by niches such as Minor Planets Expansion. Download here on SpaceDock. This was the old picture of Doppler, once named Onor (please don't deadname it). It's a relic of my past and how I've improved. Requirements: Kopernicus ModuleManager A good computer
  10. Hello I would like to present my WIP planet named Omiea. No pictures yet(it only shows up as a featureless ball in game) this is mostly just a test mod although I will see how it goes and if I'm happy with it, I might continue to develop it. Roadmap- Making the planet science defs scatterer configs EVE ???
  11. 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.
  12. Very self-explanatory mod. It changes overall looks of Jool and adds a simple procedural wasteland beneath its clouds, making it into a new destination for your space frogs. It should run any visual packs, EVE, Scatterer, without problems, it has resources and other stuff normal Jool will get from mods. With pressure limits it will be even more interesting. --------------------------------------------------------- Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 4.0 International ------------------------------------------------------ Suggested mods: Visual packs. Will add true clouds that can be seen from surface. EveEngines, ExplodiumBreathingEngines. Absolutely must have for flying there. Any mods with electric jets or propellers - RationalResources, KAX, you got it. Also, Jool remains ore-abundant with RationalResources so you won't run out of fuel If you feel need to touch it by Kopernicus patches(adding moons?), use JooI, not Jool (last letter is big "i") Have fun, report bugs! https://spacedock.info/mod/2967/JoolSurface https://github.com/hohmannson/jool_surface/releases Pics, clicks, stock EVE-less clouds. If someone doesn't like them or they a getting in the way of a visual mod, change fadestart, fadeend and deactivatealtitude to commented out values in Jool.cfg
  13. 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)
  14. This project's goal: Create a monument to the KSP Community, A star cluster made entirely by members of the community. Rules Every User May submit a maximum of 2 Planets and 4 Moons per month Stars are Pre-Placed, But you may request a star type to be added, stars will be added as systems fill up Be Kind, Everyone is at a different experience level, so please do not act in a way that is only meant to hurt the feelings of others, or pointless complaining/insulting of another's work Help Others, If someone is asking for help, help them if you can, if you cannot, refer them to someone who can For a submission you must include within the Zip File : Your Planet Configs, Your Planet's Heightmap, And Your Planet's ColorMap, Normals can also be provided, but if not, will be produced as implementation occurs, You need to make the planet. Make it interesting, the more varied the submissions, the better, if you have some amazing idea, do it, we will get a spot to place it. Every Person who submits a planet/moon will get credit for their work, All Usernames will be placed within the mod DO NOT take configs, parts of configs, or maps from other mods, if we find out it is stolen, you will be removed from the contributors list and the planets in question will be removed Systems - Systems will be set up as planets are suggested, and will be filled out below as it goes on, upon completion of a system, it will be released, Systems will have 3-5 planets and 6-10 moons Lelon - An F7V Star About halfway through it's life Maldos A-B - A Close binary between a G3V Star and a M0V Star, Planets orbit both stars at once Blubol - A singular K4V Star, Habitable zone is closer to the star as a result. >Retol - 1000 km gas dwarf orbiting Blubon at around Duna's orbit - ffx >Oloa - 250 km Duna like moon but its colored minty blue from rusted copper - ffx >Gul - 19 km marron astroid - ffx Planets will be placed within these systems, As Systems fill up, more will be added to make more space, the more systems, the better. If this goes well, and we make it to 10+ systems, we will continue both development of this, and a follow up with the improved skills of everyone involved.

  16. Kerbinary is a mod I developed to rearrange the solar system in new and interesting ways. It has the main feature of having not 1, not 2, not 3, but . . . Hold on. Only 3 binary systems? For a mod called KerBINARY! Anyway, you might be able to expect some planetary revamps in the far future, but don't count on it.

  17. 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.

  18. 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
  19. _____________________ 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.

  20. Hi, i'm making a planet mod called Endless Expanse. It's by no means done but i think it's already presentable. I'll probably have a development thingy out eventually first i just kinda wanna get the word out. So here's the planetary line up i have right now, it may change in the future. expect full development thread soon.
  21. This mod turns the Kerbol system into a more realistic representation of the Real Solar System. Moho has a new texture, Gilly is moved, and there are more outer planets? Also it's all inclined? That's just part of this mod. Download license = CC-BY-SA
  22. 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?
