themaster401 posted a topic in Add-on ReleasesContinuing one of the greatest mods to ever exist in this game I have been a huge fan of Astronomer's work since my first steps into Kerbal Space Program, during 2014. 2015 would see the hiatus of EnvironmentalVisualEnhancements development, along with the unfortunate demise of Astronomer's Visual Pack, as the version of EVE it ran on, a version made for alpha KSP, deprecated. Even as the development of EnvironmentalVisualEnhancements gained traction once more, Astronomer ceased to appear in the KSP community. Since 2016, I have been attempting to revive the gorgeous visual overhaul that was Astronomer's Visual Pack, through rewriting, remaking, and repackaging. This is the product of that work. Through adapting stock KSP "canon" and sci-fi imagination, Astronomer's Visual Pack aims to turn Kerbal Space Program into the most immersive, beautiful experience a player can get. Downloads (a.k.a. the point of no more reading) That is literally the largest version of the CKAN logo I can find Installation CKAN Check the "Astronomer's Visual Pack" mod. You will be prompted to choose a texture resolution. Install and enjoy! GitHub Acquire the latest release of "Astronomer's Visual Pack" from GitHub. Drop the "GameData" folder inside the archive into your KSP installation. Download a texture resolution of your choice . (2k, 4k, and 8k downloads are currently available). Drop the "GameData" folder inside the archive into your KSP installation. Download the latest versions of the dependencies necessary for the mod to function. This includes: EnvironmentalVisualEnhancementsScattererModuleManager TextureReplacer (Optional) Download the optional mods for extended features: DistantObjectEnhancement (what the name suggests) Chatterer (immersive audio enhancements) LoadingScreenManager (custom loading screens) PlanetShine (planet shine effect on your ships) KS3P (post-processing that integrates directly into KSP's engine) KopernicusExpansion (specifically EVAFootprints for footprints) (Optional) Use KSPRC's textures alongside Astronomer's Visual Pack: To install KSPRC side by side with AVP, first download and install Kopernicus, download the latest KSPRC release, drag and drop only the KSPRC folder from the archive into your GameData, and remove the Atmosphere and CityLights folders inside. (Optional) 43k Kerbin clouds (will gobble up RAM, CPU, GPU/requires a beefy system) Disclaimer: Astronomer's Visual Pack is best played with the optional enhancements. Standalone mods confirmed to be compatible with AVP include KSPRC (using the installation method described above), SVT, and OPM-VO. AVP is not compatible with other stock visual mods, such as Stock Visual Enhancements, Spectra, stock EVE (BoulderCo), Sci-Fi-VE, Graphics Enhancements Assembly, etc. Do not install a combination of AVP + other stock visual mods. Installs with this issue visible will likely not receive support. Features Up to 43k Kerbin clouds High-res volumetric clouds City lights on Kerbin Bioluminescent clouds for Laythe 7 cloud layers for Jool at up to 8k Glow for all non-atmospheric bodies where relevant Up to 8k auroras Sandstorms and surface dust Snow on Kerbin, Duna, and Laythe Lightning on Eve, Kerbin, Duna, and Laythe 4k custom skybox by Astronomer Geysers on Minmus, Laythe, and Eeloo Optional compatibility with KSPRC textures Custom loading screens and tips Compatibility with most other cloud packs.

So after seeing avp interstellar updated for the current version of ksp I figured id mod back up to continue my youtube series. (For the purpose of my videos I like to have the best looking stuff I can.) Unfortunately with the new AVP I cannot seem to get clouds for eve and jool to work. Consequently the cloud configs for the OPM planets likewise seem nonfunctional. My understanding is the new EVE version has issues with the OPM clouds, but this does not explain jool and eve not receiving clouds. I installed the current versions of planetshine, texture replacer and e.v.e prior to AVP, clouds work fine Kerbin and Duna but nowhere else Is anyone else having this issue or maybe have a workaround? is there a similar mod pack that adds nice clouds for stock and OPM people know? running 64 bit ksp 1.0.5 This is the aforementioned series, most recent two episodes are an example of the clouds id like to have: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL2fxlSN_yvQc5l8xjAnoEGRvgAyD0sGku
