  1. Welcome to the development thread for Beyond Home Beyond Home is a planet mod which aims to add a new system, as well as re-imagining what the Kerbol system would look like after the death of the star. Information Beyond Home will add more than 20 new planetary bodies to land on around 2 star systems. The player will begin in an entirely new star system that the Kerbals have fled to after their home star has died. The Kerbol system will still be accessible in this mod, with its planets being burnt, melted and scorched. A ruined system to return to after exploring the new home system. Currently, a roadmap is still in-progress. It will be released shortly along with an orrery view of both systems and the relative orbital information of the planets/moons. Each planet and moon will come with various unique biomes, visuals and features. No two planets look alike. Planets will range in size, appearance and ultimately difficulty progressively. Main planets further and further away from the home planet get increasingly more difficult to traverse, but not painfully so. Lava lakes, toxic atmospheres, high pressures and high gravities are not uncommon, and everywhere you go you will find interesting and new worlds to explore. Screenshots Below are some in-development screenshots of a couple of planetary bodies already created. Note that this list will be updated as development continues, and not all planetary bodies will be available to view here - only the major ones. The rest are up to you to explore. *Please note that Beyond Home is a "work in progress" and is by no means complete. If you have any questions, please feel free to drop them below in the thread or send them to me as a Private Message. Thank you for taking the time to read the thread, and keep checking back for any important updates! - Gameslinx

    [1.3.1] Real Exoplanets v0.1.1 [6/24/18]

    REAL EXOPLANETS WHAT IS THIS? Real Exoplanets is an expansion for Real Solar System that adds several new confirmed exoplanets into KSP. As the name implies, all of these exoplanets are real, and all of the planetary systems are located exactly where they are in real life. All of the planets have accurate characteristics and the visual appearance and texturing of all exoplanets are based off of our current understanding of planetary science. The only area where realism is being sacrificed is in the distances to the planetary systems. Due to the limitations of KSP and other factors, all planetary systems are located 1/10th of their real life distance. This will make the exoplanets more accessible, while still maintaining the incredible size of the universe.

  3. For a little while now, I've been creating a planet pack that will completely replace the stock system. I don't hate the stock planets, but they've been getting a little boring for me. I feel like the going to the same 16 planets (or 17 if you count the sun) over and over again is starting to become routine. So I'd like to freshen things up a bit. Here's what I got so far: (UNDER CONSTRUCTION // A FELÚJÍTÁS ALATT)
  4. Terras Ignotas "Sail past the stars and wonder" [Placeholder Logo] Terras Ignotas is a mod that adds 2 small star systems to explore, though more will be added and existing ones will be grown.

  6. After 1 year of stopped development... Welcome to the Development thread of Other Worlds Reboot. Other_Worlds was a star and planet pack that started out 2 3 years ago as my first ever ksp mod. This time, with the knowledge that I've aquired through out the years, I'm going to redo this pack! It will also include Sprite Parts, based on Project Starshot. It even comes with actual functionallity! Images are mostly ingame, but some can be renders, read the lower part of the image to know! I'll sometimes be streaming on twitch in the process of creating the planets. Downloads: > Download Alpha 0.4.3 LaserSailModule source WARNING: You must download the correct versions of Scatterer, EnviromentalVisualEnhancments and CTTP 1.0.3 or higher DISCLAIMER: For the moment, the SPRITE Laser Sail will be bundeled with Other Worlds Reboot as to wait for the completion of both projects To-Do List: - Laser Sails' UI - Check PQSs mods of Kevari, Crons, Niko, Prima and Secunda - Add compatiblity with more resources - Enhance Secunda's Map - Add Geyser to Prima - Add easter eggs (?) Last Version Changelog (alpha 0.4.3): - Return to Developent! \o/ - Added OnDemand loading. Less RAM usage - Fixed C2-1 and C3-1, now you can actually land on them! - Changed Vassa's Colormap, now with very nice gradients between grey and white - Changed Disole's Cliff color, now darker than the surroundings - Fixed Troni's biomes. More fixes for Troni will come soon - Finished Crons Color and Height maps (Finalized design)- Added recompiled Distant Object Enhancments for exoplanet flares (License CC Attribution 4.0 International)- Transformed most planet textures into .dds -> Faster Loading!- Added Compatibility with Kopernicus Expansion: Troni's lava glows on the dark- Biomes Maps for Crons and Troni (Functionality in later not yet implemented)- New Orbits for the planets, very similar but balanced, mainly inclinations- Removed weird polar asteroid belt around Cercani- Added proper asteroid belts around Cercani (Inner, Middle and Outer/Scattered) Installation: Download CTTP and install it Download Kopernicus and install it For clouds install EnviromentalVisualEnhancments and for the atmospheres install Scatterer For Loading Screens, install SigmaLoadingScreens Drop the folder "OtherWorldsReboot" into "GameData" WIP Images: (Extra imgur link) Original Other_Worlds Forum Threads: Original Forum Thread [1.3] Revamped Clouds Thread [1.3] License: CC BY-NC-ND 3.0 Credits to:
  7. Outer Planets Mod 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. Change Log v2.2.2 Converted all biome maps to Palette 4bpp/8bpp .dds formats to improve loading time and OD functionality. Removed Custom Asteroids integration in favor of using Kopernicus' Asteroids module. Included configs for "Classic Stock" resource system if present. v2.2.1 Fixed errors in Slate and Wal's normal map paths causing them not to use OnDemand loading effectively. v2.2.0 Upscaled and redefined all biome maps to 4096x2048px. Changed biome map formats to .png and clamped color palettes to only those colors in the configs. Redefined Tekto's liquid coasts (added ocean and land where necessary) in the color map, land/sea mask and adjust biome map to suit. Added Inland Lagoons biome to Tekto to account for inland liquid regions. Fixed Science Definitions file to correctly assign experiments. Moved Eeloo's new description string to the localization file. Removed antenna and DSN multiplier patches and introduced a Level 4 Tracking Station upgrade to give the extended range required for communications. Removed Stock Science Multipliers patch and redid Science Values for all OPM bodies to fall in line with stock body value consistency. Users can now adjust the Science Multiplier in their Difficulty Settings to suit their preference. Features Explore 17 highly detailed planets and moons, all in a stock-a-like artstyle Discover never before seen worlds, such as a subsatellite, 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 Extensive third-party mod integration means you can play OPM with a whole range of other mod 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 Supported Mods PlanetShine adds light reflecting off planets and moons to illuminate your ships. The Outer Planets Mod supports PlanetShine and if it's installed, it will cast spacecraft close to Sarnus, Urlum and Neidon in colored light that really adds to the visual experience of the new planets. PlanetShine isn't very modular, so you'll have to install it first and let OPM overwrite it, for the new planets and moons to get their colors. Distant Object Enhancement adds flares for faraway planets and moons, so that they're visible even from Kerbin's surface (like in real-life). The Outer Planets Mod supports DOE and if installed, will display correctly colored flares for the new planets. Final Frontier adds personal merits to Kerbals. It'll help you keep track of which Kerbonaut went where and when, with nice looking badges. The Outer Planets Mod supports this with custom badges for the new planets and moons. ResearchBodies let’s you discover all the planets in the Kerbol System through a telescope. The Outer Planets Mod supports ResearchBodies and if it's installed, you'll need to discover the planets first before sending any spacecraft to the planets. Community Resource Pack gives modders a toolkit of commonly used resources to play with, and helps us all work together in the same resource playground. The Outer Planets Mod supports CRP and if it's installed, it will add resources to OPM's planets which later can be extracted to make fuel or life support. SigmaBinary helps change Plock and Karen into a binary system, like their real-life inspirations. This means that the two orbit around a common barycenter, a point of gravity between the two. This gravitational dance is rarely seen in mods and is quite the spectacle. CustomAsteroids allows Outer Planets Mod to add the same procedural asteroids to other places than Dres and . If you have it installed, you'll see asteroid 'moons' around Jool, Sarnus, Urlum, Neidon and Plock. DOWNLOAD Installation Download and Install the latest Kopernicus: LINK Download and install Custom Barn Kit. LINK This extends the DSN ranges so your vessels can communicate from the outer planets.

  8. THIS MOD IS NOT READY FOR A REVIEW. PAGE WILL GET AN UPDATE SOON™ After almost 50 years of the Kerbal Space Program, Kerbal scientists started to question what other mysteries might be hiding beyond the orbit of Jool. They pointed a telescope at all those distant flickering things in the sky and that day Kerbalkind discovered that they were just a small part of a greater cluster of stars and planets in the neighbourhood of Kerbol! Kerbal Star Systems presents "The Kermes Galaxy", a collection of 150+ celestial objects, 60+ star systems, a revamped Kerbol System, and one very important object to hold it all together, greatly expanding the scope of the Kerbal Universe. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- TRAILERS ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I DO NOT GIVE PERMISSION TO REDISTRIBUTE THIS MOD IN A MODPACK OR TO USE THE KSS TEXTURES FOR OTHER PROJECTS This mod is licensed by Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivatives 4.0 International (CC BY-NC-ND 4.0) !

  9. Visual Compilation "You are the closest to adventure, when you are the farthest from home." - Joe Hafner Less compressed Vimeo link and other videos: Hey, Avera9eJoe here. Spectra is an ultimatum of a visual pack. A well optimized and yet breathtakingly beautiful revamp of all celestial bodies in KSP. Fly through the geysers on Minmus and Eeloo. Soar across Laythe's glittering bioluminescent sky. Skip across the dust on Minmus, Pol, and Vall. Descend through Eve's mystic clouds. Or like they say, die trying. In a nutshell Spectra is designed with these players in mind: Streamers: While made to be pretty Spectra is as optimized as possible. It runs very well on a high end system and there are ways to squeeze out extra performance as well if need be. In terms of pure FPS values, it's a dead tie with SVE. Film makers: This pack is my interpretation of the greatest visuals in KSP. An ultimate cinematic suite. Stock part purists: Spectra does not effect the stock parts, colliders, or physics. This adds visual effects and no more, meaning it runs exactly the same as an un-modded game. Just prettier. Nostalgic veterans: Many visual packs have risen and fallen over the years, and in making Spectra I'm taking the best concepts of each, expanding on them, and then applying them to an updated visual pack reminiscent of old. KSPRC's surface textures, Stock Visual Enhancement's storms, Better Atmosphere's glow, Astronomer's colors, it's all there. The credits at the bottom of the page highlights this in more detail. It's a lot to live up to, and I hope it meets your expectations. Standard pictures: Scatterer-less pictures: Spectra also works with SVT - there are instructions inside the download on how to set it up. Download: https://www.spacedock.info/mod/1505/Spectra Installation tutorial if you have trouble with the included instructions Licensing: Spectra is licensed as MIT, meaning you are free to edit and redistribute everything in Spectra so long as you give credit where it is due and don't add a more restrictive license. What's mine is yours, and what's yours is everyone else's. Ways to improve performance: You have a few options at your disposal that can highly improve your fps: Remove some extras RealPlume, PlanetShine, and DistantObjectEnhancement all tax your GPU. Removing one or more of them (Or any of the other extras) can improve your frames. Remove Scatterer Spectra has backup atmospheres that enable when Scatterer isn't in GameData. Removing Scatterer from GameData will dampen the experience, but greatly increase your performance. Spectra not to your liking? Try SVE or Sci-Fi Visual Enhancements Both of these packs are beautiful and unique in very different ways. Panzer1b and Galileo are both incredible modders, and I highly recommend their mods if Spectra doesn't suit your fancy. Known issues: If you don't install the surface textures, planet surfaces are pasty white and bland (duh!). WindowShine and Scatterer compatibility issue: When hacking into orbit with both WindowShine and Scatterer, the ocean flashes rapidly on screen. Fix by removing either WindowShine or Scatterer. Credits: @Proot's KSPRC v-0.7 PreRelease 3 Proot's Kopernicus surface textures are being used in Spectra with a custom config I made to remove tiling and dim down their intensity since Spectra uses less intense planet textures @blackrack's Scatterer Atmospheric scattering and tinting Ocean shaders @Valerian's PlanetShine PlanetShine is bundled into the original download to clear confusion with version checking. Base Albedo has been maxed in settings to create more interesting visuals, and quality has been lowered to reduce performance impact. @JadeOfMaar's Sunflares of Maar Spectra uses a dimmed version of his Primus sunflare. Inspiration: @Astronomer's Astronomer's Visual Pack - Interstellar V2 - I can't thank you enough for what you've done for your ground breaking work on the aesthetics of KSP. Thank you! Bioluminescence on Laythe @Proot's KSPRC v1.0.5 - concept image post by @drswagboss from December 2015. Focus your eyes on the textures from low-orbit. Surface textures Ablation on Moho Green-tinted Eve Warped clouds on Laythe Geysers on Eeloo @Galileo's SVT and GPP - Your works are incredible... Thanks for all the help and advice. Lightning Terrain scatters @erona's and @Thesonicgalaxy's Better Atmospheres - The original mod that added glow to non-atmospheric bodies. If you said this is where it all started, you wouldn't be wrong. Blue Duna Cloud textures @panzer1b's Sci-Fi Pack - Your pack is incredible! If you don't have the PC to run Spectra, definitely try SciFi. Proving that planet glow can still be done in new EVE, and look even better than before.
  10. Hi, every solar system mod-maker out there, (especially ProtoJeb21) please can I request a new mod to be made (And to persuade KottabosGames to check it out when its done!)? No offense, it's just because I don't know how to make new solar systems. There are 5 new solar systems, but you can add them one by one. Thanks! Also, I'll submit the equatorial radius, to make things easier. Also, this mod is called Interstellar Defense planets rejiggered with moons, because the stars and planets are from a game called Interstellar Defence. I modified each one a bit , placed them with different stars and also added moons. I also modified the stars to be more realistic. Thanks for your consideration, and hope to see these enter KSP soon! The key: No hyphens: star 1 hyphen (-): planet 2 hyphens (--): moon 1. Alpha R24 system 2. Cygnus R10 system (Please add this one first) 3. Kepler R26 system 4. Europa R12 system 5. Fermi R25 system (please do this one after Cygnus R10) These are all the systems Interstellar Defense planets rejiggered with moons should add in! If you like the suggestions, you could start making this mod, and if you do, please let me know, thanks!
  11. This mod adds 100 celestial bodies in a cluster orbiting far from the Sun while preserving the stock system. Designed for modded late game exploration, colonisation and other wackiness. Ever since the Kerbalkind learned how to properly look at the night sky, a bright blue light accompanied by a few flickering spots among the stars had always intrigued them. Throughout history, this realm in the deep sky has been associated with mythologies, the Kraken, the multiverse and snacks. As time passed, they realise that the greatest treasure the universe have to offer is right in their backyard - a neighboring cluster centered around a blue star with multiple yellow and red dwarfs guarding the outer reaches of the system. The more they looked, the more astonishing this system becomes: habitable worlds appeared one by one, documentations of ring systems became more and more detailed, the resolutions of images got higher and higher, and even a brand new protostar had been found. However, questions and mysteries started to pop up among the excitement: an abnormally high amount of friendly worlds near the quaternary red dwarf system, an unyielding planetary nebula around a main sequence star, the capture of some allegedly artificial signals, and an exotic stellar remnant with unknown composition. Nevertheless, this cluster remained silent but inviting, and space programs all over Kerbin began missions toward the stars. After countless missions to Jool, the spirit of the Kerbalkind was ignited once again to venture into The World Beyond, and this system is aptly named The Dawn Cluster. One day, all the boundaries will fall. Star map TWB does not replace the stock system and no changes has been made to it. Star emblems Inner Dawn System Dawn - An A3V class blue star, the center of the cluster that every planet and star orbits. It is quite a lot more massive and a lot brighter than Kerbol. The space near it harbors a large amount of planets. Oblivion System Oblivion - A new protostar orbiting Dawn from a distance with a big accretion disk (which is basically a colossal ring system) and plenty of asteroids. Despite it's unstable system, a few planets have already formed around it. Traverse System Traverse - A M1V orangish red dwarf shrouded by a immense nebula, it orbits roughly in the middle point of Dawn's SOI and holds up a Quadruple system with an very large amount of densely packed habitable worlds. Fragment - A very small M9V red dwarf orbiting Traverse in close binary. Due to it's size it has little effect on the overall structure of the system. Ascension System Ascension - A small M5V red dwarf orbiting Traverse from afar, shining a second dim light onto Traverse’s worlds, and also hosts some planets itself. Eternal - A tiny M8V red dwarf orbiting Ascension in binary Wall System Wall - A dim T4 class brown dwarf with only one companion. Eon System Eon - An outlying G7V yellow dwarf near the edge of the SOI of Dawn Barrier - VERY FAST spinning exotic stellar remnant orbiting Eon, and one of the most mysterious objects within the vicinity of Dawn. THE WORLD BEYOND IS CURRENTLY NOT READY FOR REVIEW AS MANY ASPECTS ARE STILL BEING DEVELOPED/REFINED. PLEASE DO NOT REVIEW THIS MOD UNTIL THIS NOTICE IS REMOVED. CC 4.0 BY-NC-ND INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS SUPPORTED MODS The Gold Standard: TWB provides configs for the resources added in TheGoldStandard, so you can mine gold and unobtainium far from home! Community Tech Tree: installing CTT will reposition the antennas on the expanded tech tree. Community Resource Pack: TWB provides configs for ALL the resources added in CRP, so you can harvest them deep in the sky for fun and profit. Sigma LoadingScreens: shows custom loading screen images and loading screen tips if installed. Texture Replacer: you can take off your helmet and breathe in any alien world with a dense oxygen atmosphere. RECOMMENDED MODS Near future technologies: provides a large assortment of parts for your spacecrafts. USI Catalog: Orion drives and warp drives to help you travel between the stars. Poodmund's Milky Way Skybox: extremely nice looking skybox that is used in all the screenshots shown above. Interstellar Extended: for those of you who want to cover interstellar distances in a realistic way. BetterTimeWarp: to make your interstellar journeys feel slightly faster and far more bearable. ESLD Jump Beacons: an alternative method to travel between the stars. COMPATIBILITY TWB is compatible with the following planet packs: Gameslinx's Planet Overhaul (GPO) Outer Planets Mod (OPM) Galileo's Planet Pack (GPP) Grannus Expansion Pack (GEP) Extrasolar Other_Worlds Reboot (OWR) New Horizons Before Kerbin After Kerbin Whirligig World An compatibility patch with Kerbal Star Systems is being worked on by the KSS team. TWB is NOT meant to played with Principia, but you can install both and see what happens KNOWN ISSUES The resource configs in this mod could make the stock KerbNet unusable (crafts that should have KerbNet access don't). This is a problem with KSP itself, and the best solution is to use the mod SCANSat and Waypoint Manager instead, both of which provides better functionality compared to the KerbNet.

  12. NO LOGS, NO SUPPORT. This solar system completely replaces the stock system. LATEST RELEASE uses Kopernicus v1.4.5-2 Changelog: v1.6.3.1 REQUIRES GPP_TEXTURES 4.2.1 Fixed incorrect body name in Asteroids config. Fixed incorrect body name in MechJeb config. Fixed incorrect texture name in OPMClouds and StockClouds. Fixed error in scatterer planet list (cause of 'black sky' bug). Rewrote several scatterer configs to improve compatibility with Module Manager. Increased Lili's surface gravity (can now land on most of its surface). Deleted Lili's orbit line from tracking station/map view. Revised Leto's atmosphere visual settings. Updated CelestialBodies.pdf. Make sure you make a save of your stock game. This mod replaces the stock solar system completely. It will probably destroy any ships you had in orbit. Consider this is your warning.

  15. Alien Space Programs Re-Visited Updated edition of Alien Space Programs for Kerbal Space Program 1.3.1 through 1.5.1 Download: GitHub Releases SpaceDock Requires: Kopernicus Optional: Stock Visual Enhancements and pre-requisites, but requires adjustments - @GregroxMun has graciously granted me permission to maintain Alien Space Programs until he's ready to take it back. Originally inspired by Little Green Men from Mars for Realism Overhaul, and by Alternis Kerbol Rejiggered, Alien Space Programs was originally three separately packaged add-ons that changed the home world to Duna, Laythe, or Eve. These offered unique challenges for our plucky kerbals. I've personally taken a shine to Eve, but these add-ons needed updating badly and I learned enough of Kopernicus to update them for KSP 1.2 to fix biomes, and later 1.3 to introduce localization. GregroxMun went a step much further, by re-packaging all of these into a single add-on with a selectable home world setting, including the original Kerbin, and provided three (four if you count Restored Duna) additional home world choices. This release is up to date for KSP 1.5.1 and a matching version of Kopernicus, tested fully on Kopernicus 1.5.1-1. Also appears to work on KSP 1.3.1 and Kopernicus 1.3.1-14. I don't yet have Making History so I haven't had a chance to test this against the DLC. Updates will come once I've had a chance to test. Support Matrix (Updated 18 NOV 2018) KSP version - Kopernicus Version - Alien Space Programs Version 1.3.1 1.3.1-14 through 15 1.3.0, 1.5.1 1.4.5 1.4.5-1 through 5 1.3.0, 1.5.1 1.5.1 1.5.1-1 1.3.0, 1.5.1 Game Modes: Little Green Men from Duna (Duna Space Program) Alternis Kerbol Light (Laythe Space Program) KSP BadS Mode (Eve Space Program) No Dessert For You (Minmus Space Program) KSP BadS Mode II: Electric Tyloogaloo (Tylo Space Program) (Also check out Whirligig World) Unrealism Overhaul, Green Edition (Jool Space Program) Installation Instructions: Use a clean, stock KSP installation to start. You can copy your current installation and delete all folders inside GameData, except for the Squad folder. Make sure it starts. Exit KSP. Install Kopernicus and its included pre-requisites into GameData, and make sure KSP still starts. The main menu will open to a different view of Kerbin if successful. Exit KSP. Install AlienSpacePrograms into GameData, and make sure KSP still starts. It should default to Kerbin as the home world. Exit KSP. Edit HomeWorldSetting.cfg to choose your home world and, optionally, atmospheric settings. Start KSP, and your chosen home world should be on the main menu screen. Enjoy. You can keep a different save file for each home world, so you don't need to clone your KSP installation for each home world playthrough. While there's supposed to be support for changing the home world for a given save file, such as demonstrated by Hazard-ish, it seems to work best when craft are in solar orbit only. Your game play experience may vary. Translations Wanted: There are a few custom strings in the dictionary_en-us.cfg file that could be translated to KSP's other supported languages. If you can translate, please send your translation dictionary to me or fork the GitHub repository and submit a Pull Request. Challenges: The HomeWorldSetting.cfg also lists challenges for seasoned KSP players. Please post challenge submissions to here, or if needed I'll start a thread in Challenges and Mission Ideas. Bug Reports, Support: Please submit bugs to the GitHub repository as an issue. Feel free to ask other support questions here. Be prepared to submit KSP and Kopernicus logs; GitHub lets you upload zip files and screen shots to issues without needing your own file storage host.
  16. Hello all, Recently I have begun making planets, and I now am close to having them ready to release. But until then I am going to show development here. Remember, there are more pictures and more development to come! Any suggestions for future additions are welcome! Progress on Planets (Red = unstarted/unusable, Yellow = In development but not 100% finished yet, Green = Full functional, ready for release) - Carnage: A strange, small moon that looks like something out of a horror movie. Dark, red ravines and planes make it look as if the planet was lashed and is now bleeding. - Rinkeutov: A mid-sized desert world with an oxygen atmosphere and brown rusty oceans. - Ripple: A small moon that appears to have been stretched and twisted around it's equator, hence the name 'Ripple' - Oran: Another small desert like planet with oceans, except these are green. It orbits the sun in a near-polar orbit, occasionally passing in-between the orbits of Kerbin and Duna. - Plod: If humans lived in the Kerbol system, it would be called 'Sedna'. This strange dwarf planet orbits in such an elliptical orbit that no Kerbal has even considered sending a probe their, probably because Plod left them on red and continued on it's multi-century orbit. - Cryode: An interesting world with bluish-green sands and a sludgy purple ocean. Development Pictures: Carnage: Cryode: Credits (thanks!): - I'd like to thank everyone from the Kopernicus discord. I'd list all of you but there are too many of us all.
  17. Welcome to Kluster, a new, WIP mod that will add not 1, but 2 galaxies to the game! the main galaxy, Miluwy pass galaxy. will be the galaxy where the small, Megtellastic Storm galaxy would orbit! What`s going to be in Kluster? Red: Not complete / Not in development Purple: In development Blue: Near Completion / Beta Test Green: Completely Done and dusted / Finished Saugi Awn: the Miluwy pass` supermassive black hole, it will measure at about 26421561552 meters in diameter, and its escape velocity at its surface will be 299792458 meters, AKA at the speed of light. saugi awn will also include a immense `ring` system. ---Alphua: The Megtellastic Storm`s Supermassive black hole, measuring at about 1827356214 meters in diameter, its escape velocity at its surface is also at the speed of light. This would be what kerbol orbits. it will orbit Saugi Awn. ------Kerbol: No info required. Just orbits Alphua. (its red as its orbit has not been developed yet) ------Poait: a medium sized purple star, for hundreds of years kerbals thought it was a giant egg awaiting fertilization, thinking a great and powerful creature would arise from it, however. scientists dismissed that idea quickly. Poait will be 45000000m in width, and would be bright purple. It will also include a small system of planets. ---------Koriand'r: a wierd world orbiting Poait, it has pink oceans and green + orange landscape. it is very hospitable due to its lovely oxygen rich atmosphere (which is purple). but it has 3x the gravity of kerbin. it hosts a lot of lifeforms, scientists at KASA wonder if the color of the oceans are the cause of life. its diameter is around 1200km. and has 3 moons. ------------Troq: a hostile moon, due to tidal influence of nearby moons and Koriand'r, it is highly volcanic, it has large seas of magma, rivers and alike. It is 320 km in diameter, and has no atmosphere. it is in a highly eliptical orbit ------------silasyrhc: a weird world, it has massive mountain ranges, and a thin atmosphere (which doesn't contain oxygen). it is very cold, and somehow had captured a large asteroid, it is 275km in diameter ---------------Sola: a small asteroid, around 89km in diameter, it is heavily cratered and mountainous. it has no atmosphere. ------------kitoail: the largest moon, some kerbal scientists cant decide whether to change it from `moon` status to `binary planet` status, it is a large world, also containing life. it has massive blue oceans and massive continents, it is 800km is diameter, it however has 2x the gravity, so landing and launching is just as hard as eve! it also has a oxygen rich atmosphere. ---------Savaos: a massive, and i mean MASSIVE gas giant, around 2200000m in diameter, and whats more, ITS EXTREMELY CLOSE TO POAIT. around 1210510 km away from the star. a day here is as long as its year, 2 days, 3 hours and 29 minutes. and it has some moons. it was discovered 30 years ago. ------------Rith: its orbit takes 2 days, 3 hours and 29 minutes, and due to this is technically tidally locked with poait, it hangs permanently in the shadow of savaos, never being hit by daylight or heat, it is as cold as ice, actually its colder than, around that of -182*C. it also has oceans of liquid oxygen. More bodies are going to be added later, but feel free to suggest your own ideas, because you never know if your idea is gold! Screenshots N/A, The mod has not been developed yet. Developers GalacticVoyager - Founder, Tester, Main Planet Creator ProtoJeb21 - Co-Owner, Main Planet Developer, Main Coder License Feel free to share your thoughts on this mod, we are aiming for a quite unique mod that includes many worlds that would look weird or bizarre to other people! Kluster suggestion thread and development!
  18. This mod intends to give users a decent alternative to scatterer oceans. If the scatterer ocean performance hit is too much for your system, this mod may provide you some relief and a little bit of eye candy. While this mod does not match scatterer in quality, it does look a lot better than stock oceans, in my opinion. There are 3 different versions: High Resolution: 2048x2048 textures Medium Resolution: 1024x1024 textures Low Resolution: 512x512 textures (this is also the stock resolution) This mod disables Scatterer's ocean shaders so you don't have to worry about doing that. Also works fine along side SVE and SVT. Only works for stock oceanic bodies (Kerbin, Laythe, Eve) and GPP (Gael, Tellumo, Tarsiss, Hadrian) oceanic bodies.

  19. Download at Spacedock Requires Kopernicus, and Kopernicus Expansions Continued RegionalPQSMods (In version 0.6.0, Kopernicus Expansions comes with the mod, you don't need to download it) The Kerbal Astronomical Union's SLIPPIST instrument (Shadow of Light Imaging of Planets and Planetesimals In the Sky Telescope, not to be confused with the Kerbal brand of Root Beer after which the telescope was named), has just made an incredible discovery this week. The SLIPPIST-1 Star System, around which we previously knew of three Kerbin-sized planets, has been confirmed to be the parent to an additional four planets, for a total of seven. At least three of these worlds are known to be in the habitable zone, the region of space around which water can remain liquid. SEVEN WORLDS AROUND SLIPPIST-1 Rendered in a stockalike art style, SLIPPIST-1 is a Kerbalized rendition of the TRAPPIST-1 star system. Planets have been scaled down to 1/10 scale to fit in the Kerbal universe. By default it replaces the stock system, but there is a setting.cfg that can be used to make the Slippist star system into an alien star system a distance away from the stock system. Seven Worlds of SLIPPIST-1 is an up-to-date depiction of a scientifically accurate TRAPPIST-1. Care has been taken to accurately portray each of the planets without getting in the way of gameplay. Full album and explanation of the system here. More Pictures of the Planets: PLANNED FEATURES: Asteroids and comets. (Potential early-game landing destinations.)

  20. 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.

  21. Development Thread for Ramesses System Overhaul (RSO) What is RSO? As the name suggests, the mod will replace all of the planets and add a bit more. RSO will be situated around a K-type star which is orbited by 14 planets (3 minor), with an early L-type orbited by 5 planets. All of which are listed below The Planets Ra System Seker System Pics Click for Imgur album Keep in mind that this mod is still a work in progress and will not be uploaded until I feel like it's ready for release.
  22. Flare Replacer is a mod to replace the stock sun flare without using Scatterer. Currently there are 15 different flares to choose from. These sun flares are ported over from Galileo's Sun Flares. All flares are 4k (stock's are 1k if you are wondering). I think I covered most niches when it comes to sun flares. There are some basic, no-nonsense flares for those who like realism, and there are some flares that JJ Abrams would be proud of, and a few in between. Here are some screenshots Aichmiros Avrams Classico Fusion Grande Megalo Mellontikos Omorfia Lampros Grat Foveros Zesto Epos Fotia Enkavma Just a cool screenshot Screenshots are also available in the each zip file, so you can easily see what each looks like without having to come back to the forums over and over. How to change the color Open the FlareReplacer cfg and find the parameter %sunLensFlareColor = 1,1,1,1 The color is in decimals, or float value. Replace the value 1,1,1,1 with any of the recommended values below: The higher the value, the more saturated the color. 1 should be the minimum, and there is no maximum, these are just the values I prefer. R,G,B,A 1,1,1,1 = White 4,1,1,1 = Red 1,4,1,1 = Green 1,1,4,1 = Blue 4,3,1,1 = Yellow 4,1,4,1 = Purple 4,2,3,1 = Pink 4,2,1,1 = Orange 1,4,4,1 = Blue-Green Using a value less than 1 causes some odd looking sun flares. You can come up with whatever color you can think of, these are just examples and probably the most popular. Here are some screenshots of the colors in action To add compatibility with other planet packs *NOTE: ALL planet packs have a star named "Sun" as the center of the system, or should. They may be renamed once kopernicus loads but they are still technically "Sun". That being said, you can leave the first Kopernicus node alone. To add a star from a planet pack to this mod, copy the entire body node in the FlareReplacer cfg. and paste it directly below the first one. All you have to do is change the name of the body name in @Body[] as shown below. You can add as many of these as you like to cover as many stars as you have in your planet pack. This will allow you to define a color for each individual star. Feel free to include your new cfg in your planet packs and add this mod as a recommendation! It should look like this: @Kopernicus:FINAL:NEEDS[FlareReplacer] { @Body[starNameGoesHere] { %ScaledVersion { %Light { %sunLensFlareColor = 1,1,1,1 %sunFlare = FlareReplacer/FlareReplacer.unity3d:sun_flare } } } @Body[anotherStarNameGoesHere] { %ScaledVersion { %Light { %sunLensFlareColor = 1,1,1,1 %sunFlare = FlareReplacer/FlareReplacer.unity3d:sun_flare } } } } @Scatterer_config:Final:NEEDS[!FlareReplacer] { @fullLensFlareReplacement = True } Be sure to include this ^^^ at the bottom of your cfg. This enables the Scatterer sun flares again if FlareReplacer is uninstalled. @Scatterer_atmosphere:FINAL:NEEDS[FlareReplacer] { @Atmo,* { @m_mieG = 0.2 } } ^^^ You may also want to add this bit of code so that the sun flares are not super over-exposed when you are inside an atmosphere. v1.0.3 Change Log Update for 1.4.2 To install: Drop the FlareReplacer Folder into your GameData folder Install the latest Kopernicus (https://github.com/Kopernicus/Kopernicus/releases/) DOWNLOAD Unfortunately, there are too many files to have on CKAN.

  23. About: To Boldly Go (TBG) is a stand-alone application that allows users to create a procedural galaxy. It leaves the stock game's planets untouched, but adds new stars, planets, and moons--all using real-world calculations (adjusted for the oddities of the in-game physics). The original author, @daniel l., has asked me to take the lead on development, and after a long time of inaction I have finally made a new thread. Current release: For KSP 1.4.5-4 (requires Kopernicus 1.4.3.2): https://github.com/kjoenth/To-Boldly-Go/releases/tag/0.3.1.2 Instructions: Install Kopernicus Copy the contents of the GameData/ folder to KSP's GameData/ folder An example galaxy is included with TBG, but if you want to make your own custom galaxy, launch the GalaxyGen.exe application and follow the instructions. Maximum recommended galaxy size: 200 stars. (KSP 64-Bit) Launch KSP Depending on your computer and the number of stars+planets+moons in your galaxy, it might take a while for KSP to start up. If you think KSP might have frozen, look in the Logs/Kopernicus/ folder to see if files are being generated Eeek! A bug!: By all means mention things here, but another good place to report things is at https://github.com/kjoenth/To-Boldly-Go/issues Current features: Automatic of customizable galaxy generation Use of a seed so you can share more easily share your galaxies with friends. An output txt file detailing the details of your galaxy Star types (O, B, A, F, G, K, M) with procedurally determined colours based on their mass. A wikiEntry html file that is generated for each galaxy that provides details for stars in the generated universe Different galaxy types: ellipse, disc, or cluster Galaxy age (impacts the numbers of star types automatically generated) Ability to have no planets, or no moons. Ability to determine exact numbers of each star type. Add in planets/moons from any start pack. Instructions here. Whether stars are visible from Kerbin depends on their luminosity and distance Optional integration with ResearchBodies Pictures or it didn't happen: @daniel l.'s imgur album: KottabosGames review of an earlier version: Short video showing the "milky way" as seen from Kerbin:
  24. 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
  25. _____________________ 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 _____________________ (click on images) _______________________ Recommended mods _____________________ - by Amarius1 - by Nils277 - by Valerian _______________________ Lets meet the new planets! _____________________ Faz: Harvest: Rega: Sarvin Keelon: Corolet: __________________________________ The team! ________________________________ @amarius1 - Lead Developer @Nils277 - Part Creator @Olympic1 - Career Intergration & Tweaks @The White Guardian - Career Intergration, EVE Clouds & Tweaks @smokytehbear - FF Ribbons __________________________________ Thank you ________________________________ Thomas - For developing and mantaining Kopernicus.
