  1. I am back again and I am pleased to announce a new Planet Pack, yet again. But this one is special, its a remake of my first Planet Pack, The New Crew. Now, you might have noticed, the mod's name is quite misleading, and that's why It is now renamed the Alpharia planet Pack(BTW there is no planet called Alpharaia, It's only called that as it was a remake of my first planet pack and just Alpha sounded boring) Download: https://spacedock.info/mod/2751/Alpharia Planet Pack (The New Crew Reloaded)?ga=<Game+3102+'Kerbal+Space+Program'> Compatible with KSP Version: 1.12.1, 1.11.1 Content(For now) 2 Planets(1 rocky world, 1 Gas giant) 1 Dwarf Planet 9 moons(1 around the Rocky planet,6 around the Gas giant, 2 around the Dwarf planet) Also if you are doing a review for this planet pack, the difficult to pronounce name will have pronunciations in the brackets in the info pannel( also in the pack the syllable "Cy" is pronounced as "Sai") Some Cool shots of the Pack Dependencies Kopernicus(along with everything else in the Kopernicus.zip file) MIT by Thomas P. Kittopia Tech MIT by Thomas P. Supported Mods/Visual mods Environmental Visual Enhancement (EVE) Scatterer Parallax All Visual mods come pre-bundled More content will be coming soonTM The plans for new content: More moons for Cytaria(planned 6) Now finished !!! add some dwarf planets Partially done!! Add an optional alternate homeworld(Cyz0122) License: MIT
  2. Welcome to the dev page of "Interstellar Consortium", a collection of ideas and agreements regarding the position of stars in KSP Modding This has the goal of making star planet packs compatible with each other with a simple patch (or no patch at all) at all time without any major problems what-so-ever. Interstellar Consortium (Github) - Explanation of the Plugin Link to the decided stars positions spread sheet Stellar Viewer Github & Stellar Viewer The Original Problem KSP wasn't designed to host star mods at all and it has multiple problems: Just until recently, if you wanted static stars (Not moving stars a.k.a. non colliding stars) you had to create a new central body. This causes a lot of problems with compatiblity and float point errors. Planet packs that had their stars orbiting Kerbol/Sun, could have their SOIs (Sphere of Influences) collide and cause some problems if you wanted to go interstellar Light of Kerbol/Sun is infinite, so it lights up every planet in the whole game regardless of distance Most of the problems can be fixed now, like the infinite light problem. And this is where Interstellar Consortium comes into play Interstellar Consortium Interstellar Consortium will be a series of small patches or decisions between modders to fix these problems and provide a stable interstellar experience by not having a central body put neither have stars moving. For this, there will be a map describing the position and SOIs of almost every star in KSP modding and a new unit of measure for interstellar distances. In the technical part, the stars will still be orbiting Kerbol/Sun and won't require important patches, but will be static to avoid collisions by changing the orbital period of these. The Unit and the Map The new unit for interstellar travel was decided upon looking at an optimal distance at which KSP will still hold up without major glitches. The unit will be called/shortened ki (Kerbal Interstellar or something like that) and will equal 1e+13m which is close to 0.1% of real distances compared to real life and 1% of what it should be in KSP scale This was decided for gameplay balancing (Interstellar travel takes time and making these distances longer could be damaging), some realism (Still far enough to feel as a far away target where to go in the future) and glitch-avoiding (Greater distances can cause float point errors and make returning to the home world bad) The map itself is very simple: A central point to consider it the "center of the galaxy" and Kerbol/Sun but with some requirements for the stars so to make everything compatible: The minimun distance recommended between two stars should shall be 2 ki - A bit short of what Proxima's distance would be with this unit. The max SOI radius should be 1.2 ki - With this, no SOIs will collide and will avoid some major glitches and gameplay flaws The recommended SOI for Main Secuence Stars should be 0.8 ki - This part is entirely albitrary and it's just a recommendation. From a star, the closest stellar companion has to be further than its SOI No star should go farther than 15 ki from the central point in the plane of the "galaxy" and no farther than 4 ki in the normal axis Kerbol/Sun will be at coordinates (10,0,0), being X and Y in the plane of the "galaxy" and Z being up and down - Leads to a feeling of lonliness on the outside and a feeling of crowdness towards the inside Star Clusters (Looking at you Dawn from TWB) can have their own stars as close from themselves as the author wants, but has to ensure no star of those are closer than the minimun distance with a external star Multiple Star Systems count as a single star system The current map has enough space to host 80 to 100 stars which is already a lot and should last for a long time before require of another galaxy or widening of the current one Claming of spaces Of course if we dont decide on the places the stars are, this whole consortium wouldnt make any sense. For that, I've created a small sheet on google with a top-down and side views of the whole map/galaxy (At the moment it doesnt provide the oribit output which will be the actual "orbits" of the stars for the packs, but I'm doing the math) To claim a part of the map just comment with the coordinates (X,Y, Z) you would like your star to be and make sure to follow the rules previously mentioned. And if you want to claim more than 2 systems, please don't claim all to be very close to Kerbin/Sun, that would be very sad for all of us and could damage some planet mods. (Higher class stars like F, A, B... could be nice to have a bit more space out to preserve a bit of realism regadring stellar class proportions) Also, I'm not the only one that would judge the claims. This has to be a consortium after all, a decision made by all of us. To put your star in the correct place, just put its period at a very high number (9e+50 is a good number) and put as the orbital parameters the ones calculated in the spreadsheet (Todo) System Modify Mods A lot of planet mods center around changing the stock system to a brand new one. These changed systems could also serve as a different start point in the map, moving the rest of the stars accordingly to make the effect succesful. This would mean that, for example, you could start in the GPP system but the map wouldnt change. Kerbol/Sun would still be in the same spot and his neightbor stars would still be the same This would require the IC mod part to bundle the Stock System cloning data and have the System Modify mods to move every star to the correct locations. (This could be eased with a proper orbit calculator or a custom plugin to ease things) Who are you to say these things As a disclaimer, I have done a star system of my own and have talked with different planet modders about this and we came to the comclusion that this would be a very good fix to all compatibility issues and at the same time be fun to explore (It's Kerbal Space Program after all, it's meant for rockets and spaceflight) For the moment, I'm the only contributor to the spread sheet and mod aspect (To be done), but I have talked, again, with people about this and they might come on-board to help with the organization of this map.

  3. Hi Mates, GRS here... I'm working on this Planet Pack, I call it "Kronos Planet Pack", it'll envelope up to 20 Bodies in total. Red = Not started yet. Yellow = Working on it. Green = Finished. Underlined = Hard Worlds Bodies : Spade = A Ridiculously Inclined Eccentric Moon with mostly Green and Dark Gray. (6 Km, 0.002 Gees) Arkanus = A Super Mohonian that's Super Close to Kerbol/Sun.(400 Km, 1.7 Gees) Lotus = A far away Planet with the size of Minmus .(40 Km, 0.0385 Gees) Orbin = A Desert Super-Kerbinian world with Super Dense Atmospheric pressure.(675 Km, 1.5 Gees, 14 Atm Max Pressure) Nuuma = Moon of Orbin with roughly the size of Mun, maybe bigger...very likely.(225 Km, 0.25 Gees) Kronos = Large Massive Gas Giant with Borderline Mass and Red Colored.(9000 Km, 5 Gees) Shrek = A Minmus sized moon that orbits very closely to Kronos.(75 Km, 0.07 Gees) Aleph = A massive moon of Kronos that looks covered in Lava.(700 Km, 1.2 Gees) Zeruel = Large Super Kerbinian moon with Ocean and Oxygenic Atmosphere.(750 Km, 1.4 Gees, 1 Atm Max Pressure) Terriblis = A Giant world with High Gravity and rich of Copper Sulphate that makes it Very Blue. Baduraks = Largest Moon of Terriblis, and is a Super Tylo type. ---More Spoilers Coming Soon--- Spade Orbin Nuuma Arkanus Lotus Kronos Shrek Aleph Zeruel Thanks for all of you that helped me on these things... And Don't come here to say First !!!
  4. I was wondering for planet creation how you make the path of your orbit invisible (To emulate a separate solar system) Do you have to code it in or is it part of the config file?
  5. Happy Eclipse Day!!!!! I spent the last month working on a planet-pack mod, and I figured that today would be a good time to release it. This planet pack removes all planets and moons expect for Minmus, The Mun, and Kerbin. It replaces the stock system with 2 Gas-Giants and 4 terrestrial planets. This mod also spawns in asteroids to mimic the asteroid belt, NEO's, and debris orbiting within the ocean moon Uulmo. The various planets were named after characters from J. R. R. Tolkien's Lord Of The Rings and The Silmarillion. As a reminder, this mod requires Kopernicus. Use the version of Kopernicus for your version of KSP Download Eru Planet Pack here: https://kerbal.curseforge.com/projects/eru-planet-pack The planets in this mod are : Melkor and its moon Sauron Aule and its moon Durin Lorien and its moon Celeborn Uulmo and its moons Numenor and Imrahill Tulkas and its asteroid moon Theoden Manwe and its moons Thranduil, Fangorn, and Varda Valinor and its moons Elros, Feanor, and Maia. Here are some pictures of planets in the mod:
  6. A while ago I've installed @GregroxMun's amazing mod called Revamped Stock Solar System (RevSSS for short). But recently I decided to play with stock solar system and go visit some easter eggs. The problem is, that deleting RevSSS broke my quicksave. Something that should probably be mentioned is, that I deleted the bodies it added to the game (currently just a few small Joolian moons). The rest of the mod is replacing the stock models/textures of the planets and moons. Anyways, when I try to load the latest quicksave, the clock resets and a bunch of vessels dissappear. Does anyone have the same problem/clue about what's going on? If needed, I can provide the save (if that would help)
  7. I've always wanted to write up some mission reports, and I feel since it's now summer (woohoo!) and seeing as I'm an unemployed student (awww) I might as well spend the time I'm wasting of my life doing this! To freshen up the Kerbal experience I'm using ResearchBodies as well as (as of right now) the Outer Planets Mod and my own Planet Collection (I've spent so much time making these planets, but never gotten to them legitimately). I am however going for a really stock feel with this. Most importantly, as a sort of personal challenge, I will not be quickloading or reverting flights in this playthrough, meaning that Kerbals are going to die a lot. ======================== Career mode - Normal difficulty Visual Mods - PlanetShine + Distant Object Enhancement ResearchBodies - Only Kerbin and the Mun unlocked from the beginning Planet mods - My Planet Collection, Outer Planets Mod ======================== Part I, Pros and Cons *Note to self: Do not send Kerbals into space before looking over the rocket for more than 3 seconds. Things went fine for the first launch, when valiant Valentina became the first Kerbal to leave the ground (apart from like, you know, jumping) in the first rocket in Kerbal history, riding aboard the Petit Mk I. The design of the Petit Mk I has its pros and cons Pros: Cheap, can fly Cons: After reaching the apex of its trajectory, tends to dart straight down. Also partially explodes on landing. The important part is, Valentina's flight yeilded valuable scientific information, which Wernher von Kerman tells me can be used to improve our rocket designs (how that makes any sense, I have no idea). This data lead to the creation of the Gros Mk I, a larger cousin of the Petit featuring two stages and an experiment bay. Jebediahs flight was meant to only reach the upper atmosphere, but unbeknownst to me the Gros is in fact capable of reaching space, thus making Jeb not only the first Kerman to go to outer space, but the first to go there by accident. Of course, those aren't the only firsts Jeb set today. You see, the Gros also has a few pros and cons. Pros: Can make orbit! Cons: I might have maybe (just maybe) forgot to add a heat shield. Coupled with the accidental suborbital flight and well... Jeb also became the first Kerbal to die in space. ======================== Part 2, Accidentâ„¢ ======================== Like I said before, it's my first time writing up mission reports, so please leave feedback! Thanks for reading, I'll post another part soon.
