Hello there, I was wondering if it would be possible to implement cubemap support for planets into an update at some point. I really would love to see this, since the DDS format (a texture format used by most if not all unity games) has a max resolution of just 16k. This works fine if your planets are kerbin sized, but when you have bigger planets it can look somewhat stretched. With cubemaps in theory you could have textures up to 64k in resolution in addition to having no stretching at the poles. this would allow for much greater quality and clarity in the textures of larger planets. Thanks so much for your time. Here's an example of what I mean. For anyone who may not know, cubemaps allow for this kind of clarity. but currently this is done by a mod called RVE64K for RSS using a workaround, so it doesn't load properly when not in orbit or in the map view.
What about parts made specifically to do oceanic explorations for places like laythe, eve and kerbin allowing for even more fun and discoveries and for example it would answer the question of what stabilizes the atmosphere for laythe, allow us to find (more) little easter eggs, just imagine it you could have parts that allow submersion, little propellers designed for underwater propulsion, parts designed to put up with the express purpose of surviving the immense pressures, going from little adorable probe submarines to massive underwater research stations capable of holding dozens of kerbols. I would do it myself but I can't as i don't 1 have the skill and 2 wan't it to be something that only people who mod can experience. Now i understand that this would be a massive task and a huge annoyance with everything you all would have going on (what with making KSP 2) but a bonus could be a trial allowing you to judge public/user response and seeing if its worth putting into KSP 2.
Aside from bug fixes, there's really only one thing I'd like to see changed in the stock game (if only because I can't afford a computer with enough horsepower to run major mods, and including them into the game would make it unplayable on my computers). I'd like to see a more realistically ordered tech tree progression (wings and jets before rocket parts, RCS before reaction wheels, etc.) (yes, I know, there are mutliple mods for that), with the ability to research single parts. That is to say, if I need a retractable landing gear, but don't have the 90 science on tap to research that entire node, for, say, 20 or 30 science, I could unlock just the retractable gear. That is all.
