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 via CKAN (Recommended) It's easier and less possible to have installation mistakes to install Kcalbeloh System via CKAN. Please notice that only stable versions are posted on CKAN. If you want to download the test versions, you still need to install manually. 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.

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.
