  1. Screenshots JNSQ Of the French phrase "Je Ne Sais Quoi," meaning "Something (such as an appealing quality) that cannot be adequately described or expressed," JNSQ seeks to be a finely crafted and freshly challenging planet pack. "Galileo's Planet Pack (GPP)" as many have come to know, has broken many conventions and raised the bar very high for high-quality, challenging, career-friendly, and long-term thrilling planet packs. But now it is regarded as only a stepping stone next to this. Everything that Team Galileo has done for and learned from GPP, has been or is being put into practice here. Unlike GPP, JNSQ does not remove the stock planets but rather, does reimagine and reinvent them, destroying what you think you know about some of them, and answering the KSP community's cry for a true stock planet visual overhaul and the cry for the planets to be larger. JNSQ also fills out the local planetary system, providing several all new worlds to discover, with a total body count of 31, the amount in GPP. Logic Many KSP modders have considered that while the stock parts (namely, engines) are overpowered for stock scale, they are tuned just right for 2.5x scale. With this in mind, JNSQ is built in natively "1/4 real-life scale" (about 2.7x stock scale) which is modestly larger than 2.5x. Because of this change in scale, the length of the Kerbin day is now 12 hours. Notes Sigma Dimensions and Rescale! are not required for JNSQ to function, and are discouraged from use alongside JNSQ. When starting new saves under JNSQ, we advise that you enter Difficulty Settings and raise the DSN modifier to 4x. JNSQ applies a patch to increase antenna range by 4x, so leave the range modifier at 1 (changing it triggers a bug that may prevent science transmission). The Making History LV-TX87 and LV-T91 engines have had their thrust, mass and cost increased 25% and 20% respectively. This change was deemed necessary to assure they can lift a Mk2 command pod and service module to low orbit at JNSQ's larger scale. JNSQ retains the stockalike Kerbin-Mun-Minmus system to conform to game elements outside or our control, such as the built-in contract system. Be advised, however, this configuration is unstable. For users of the mod Principia, the orbit of Minmus is moved inside that of Mun to provide orbital stability. JNSQ raises the SCANsat scan altitudes by 3x in order to allow reasonable scan speeds at 2.7x scale, and viable scan work at all but the smallest bodies. JNSQ provides at least 14 facilities powered by Kerbal Konstructs + Omega's Stockalike Stuctures. Most of these facilities have gameplay features within them for making use of spare kerbals, launching and refueling ships, farming funds or science, expanding DSN coverage, recovering for funds in career. Most of these facilities are hidden by default and must be found. 9 of these are airports. 2 of these directly replace the MH launch sites (Woomera2 for Woomerang, and Darude for Dessert). 2 of these are mountain-top observatories with science farming and full DSN capabilities. Disclaimer / Barrier to Entry ⚠️ The target audience for JNSQ is the same as, if not narrower, than that of GPP. This mod is made not for the player-base at large, but for seasoned players: who greatly respect rocketry, realism and physics; who do not hold much regard for maintaining "stockalike" and "stock scale;" who are willing and able to mod their way to a great or greater game and who are able to troubleshoot a damaged install for themselves and help us to help them. JNSQ introduces and bundles a new utility mod that depends on the Community Resource Pack and makes Ore even more scarce and challenging than GPP does. This mod is appropriately called Rational Resources, whose purpose is to purge the random resource configurations generated by CRP, grant increased compatibility between planet packs and mods that use certain resources, and encourage the use of mods that use advanced resources. Compatibility for mods that expect the stock planets with default topology, biomes, order or radii is not to be expected and will not be provided by us. JNSQ is not recommended for use with other planet packs. Questions regarding other planet pack compatibility will be ignored.

An engine pack tailored for Eve ascent vehicles. JX2 Antenna, late-game antennae made to reduce the need to spam RA-15 and RA-100 and preclude the need to install Custom Barn Kit. Utilities Antenna Helper adequately and easily shows the power and ranges of combined antenna in VAB, flight and the Tracking Station. Better SRBs: Although a small engine pack, it is primarily a utility. This mod adds very much needed behavior and appropriate rebalances to SRBs in stock and in a handful of popular large parts packs. CommNet Antennas Info expands the panel info for antennae in the VAB. Kerbal Alarm Clock now works with Kronometer; lets you easily mark the times for maneuvers and encounters in many flights. SCANsat: A tiny mod that adds a few parts but is critical to an exploration or ISRU game. Highly recommended for discovering anomalies including most of JNSQ's KK facilities and identifying atypical resource placements by Rational Resources.

  2. REAL EXOPLANETS License: Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike DESCRIPTION: Real Exoplanets (REX) is planet pack that adds several 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 of all exoplanets are based off of our current understanding of planetary science (as well as some artistic license when necessary ). Real Exoplanets is compatible with both Real Solar System and the stock, default solar system. With RSS, REX is properly scaled by a factor of 10. REX CELESTIAL CATALOG: CREDITS: Squad for KSP of course @Thomas P. for Kopernicus @NathanKell for Real Solar System @Pkmniako for getting DOE to work for far away stars and planets @ProtoJeb21 for helping me for ages to recreate real life exoplanets that have accurate characteristics SOURCES: DOWNLOAD ON SPACEDOCK

Galaxies Unbound: Nova Kirbani is all about our closest stellar neighbour, Alpha Centauri. Although we don't know much about the system, Proxima b (and c) is present and we tried to keep some level of realism to it. Using various scientific and fictional sources to put together planets that are hopefully worth visiting and challenge you to adjust, adapt and survive! For questions or troubleshooting you'll find me and the others involved on this server: Just to be clear, to download GU ... you just click on the image above ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- About Galaxies Unbound This 'collection' will exist out of several individual mods (systems). Which the player can combine into 1/2 small clusters/galaxies. An Optional Stock System Overhaul is also under development. All systems will be based on real life star systems and will contain existing discovered planets. I'll be aiming to be scientific accurate planets (to some degree). These projects will be compatible with the Interstellar Consortium Plugin but will also function on their own. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Currently 1 system is finished and released.

  4. Welcome to Beyond Home. Beyond Home adds more than 25 new planetary bodies to land on around 2 star systems. You begin in an entirely new star system that the Kerbals have fled to after their home star has died. The Kerbol system is accessible in this mod, with its planets being burnt, melted and scorched. A ruined system to return to after exploring the new home system. Each planet and moon comes with various unique biomes, visuals and features. No two planets look alike. You must approach each one differently. 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, high pressures and high mass bodies are not uncommon, and everywhere you go you will find interesting and new worlds to explore. Trust me, you'll see some pretty cool features. NOTE: Since this is a 1.0.0 release, if you find a bug please notify me ASAP and i'll patch it as soon as i can. Click here to view the Beyond Home trailers: When updating Beyond Home from a previous version you MUST delete settings.cfg in your KSP folder to use the optimization changes! IMPORTANT NOTICE: BEYOND HOME is not compatible with MAKING HISTORY. You will need to install the "Making Less History" mod alongside the DLC. This means you won't be able to use the mission builder, but the rest of Beyond Home will work. Cheers! Beyond Home has been 4 months in development as of its initial release. I've dedicated a lot of my time and work to releasing this for everyone, so I hope you enjoy it as much as I did making it - if not more! If you're feeling kind, I could always go a pizza or two. Although donations are never asked for, I always appreciate them so if you're feeling generous, you're able to give back to me if you wish. INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS: Thank you for downloading and playing Beyond Home. Special Thanks: @Bishie2, @DeltaDizzy, @Elowiny, @JadeOfMaar, @Pkmniako, @Ub3rshadow, Splet, CameronLuce and Clonos for Beta Testing Beyond Home. @Thomas P. for creating Kopernicus, making Beyond Home possible in the first place.

  5. Visual Compilation "You are the closest to adventure when 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://spacedock.info/mod/1505/Spectra 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: Mun surface textures look bad from low orbit Duna turns death blue (moreso than usual) if you make any changes via the EnvironmentalVisualEnhancements GUI. Don't touch it and you'll be fine. 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. WindowShine not updated for 1.6.1 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.
  6. Rational Resources is designed to operate on the Community Resource Pack or the WBI Classic Stock resources and to strip out the entirely random resource distributions and to apply distribution templates (carefully configured groups of resource distributions) according to the logically expected class and composition of a body. Rational Resources is inspired by Realistic Atmospheres made by @OhioBob and is part of the JNSQ (the planet pack) experience. While this mod is installed, un-configured bodies will have no resources at all. This mod may inflate your ModuleManager cache quite a bit. Notice that the logo image tells the following: Mun has a sizeable portion of MetalOre and Oxygen, but no Water (will be handled by biome specific config) and no Uraninite. Kerbin has a sizeable portion of Rock and Silicates, and there's a display for crust, ocean and atmo. Duna has a sizeable portion of CO2 in crust and atmo (not in legend), MetalOre, RareMetals and Uraninite, but no Minerals or Silicates. This mod enables planet makers to easily assign these distribution templates to their planet packs and skip the headaches of figuring out and writing the individual nodes themselves, and assorting all of their writings into several per-resource config files. Active CRP Resources Surface and Atmosphere Ammonia, CarbonDioxide, ExoticMinerals, Gypsum, LqdHe3, Hydrates, Hydrogen, MetalOre, Methane, Minerals, Nitrogen, Ore, Oxygen, RareMetals, Rock, Silicates, Substrate, Uraninite, Water. Ocean LqdAmmonia, LqdCO2, LqdMethane, LqdNitrogen, LqdOxygen, Water. Star Antimatter, Karborundum, LqdHe3, Hydrogen, LqdDeuterium. The resources above are preferred and used. are patched to display them all. Ocean resources only show non-zero values when the scanner vehicle is splashed. The Star series templates apply resource bands to a narrow and general classification of stars, automatically making them all viable as mining destinations for interstellar vessels. The expected members of this seres are: Yellow; Red Dwarf; Red Giant; Blue Giant. Due to a very nasty bug in stock, any resource bands around a star can only have a a maximum span of somewhere under 2 Gigameters. WBI Classic Stock system support: Rational Resources shows in the WBI play mode switch UI. (Picture needs to be updated) Assigning a template to a planet is as easy as: Current templates ISRU With omnipotent Ore being stripped of its Godhood, the following ISRU chains are proposed and encouraged for use by seasoned modders. Ore abundance is capped to 5% and its presence chance to 80%. It will be inconvenient for most players... but it will still be around. Ore tanks will be changed, at least, to hold the cryogenic input resources. Players may find themselves forced towards using Hydrolox rocketry since the required resources (Ore or Carbon Dioxide) for LiquidFuel may often be scarce meanwhile the requirements for Hydrolox (Hydrates, Hydrogen, Oxygen, Water) can be quite abundant. Compatibility Due to the listed resources and the nature of Rational Resources, compatibility instantly extends between configured planet packs and the following mods: Kerbalism (consumable resources only) TAC Life Support Near Future Tech suite Hydrolox rocketry mods (including BlueDog Design Bureau, Cryogenic Engines, Kerbal Atomics) Potential Methalox rocketry mods Some resources and their distributions are conditionally spared while the rest are removed. Spared resources include ArgonGas, XenonGas, Karbonite and Karborundum (condition: Karbonite's specific placements like the overabundance on Eve are disallowed). Purged resources include Dirt (used by MKS alone but supplanted with more Rock) and any other mod that adds resources (and especially extremely handwaved ones) such as The Gold Standard. But a provision exists to allow such resources to not be purged. If you somehow still have "RealisticResources" please delete that before installing.

  7. Welcome to the development thread for Beyond Home Beyond Home has been RELEASED - For comments/discussion PLEASE use that thread!: 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
  8. Welcome to my second mod thread. If you haven't already noticed, I've pretty much halted development for RealExpansion due to low community interest and me wanting to persue Far Lands. Far Lands adds more star systems into the game in a similar style to KSS, with multiple filler stars for gravity assists and to look nice. So far, 3 systems have been finished (but not released) Discord - Please join us, we need more people Wiki Download: Beta/Proto Repository: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1x2JVzPxPHWW7TmZNyGBFSha9nfZJk0R- Release Repository: CLOSED Contact me if you find any bugs/copyright violations No pics no clicks: Special Thanks to: @StarCrusher96 for help with textures and kopernicus @GurrenLagannCWP for concepts and generally being a sound guy @Noah the Smol for ideas and concepts Release Schedule (rough estimates): This mod is licensed by the Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International - http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/. If there are any legal concerns message me preferibly on discord. I'm not the best with licensing.
  9. This is the ground textures mod for any STOCK game. It is developed to work best along side Stock Visual Enhancements. This mod adds ground textures to ALL celestial bodies within the STOCK SOLAR SYSTEM and makes scatter objects tangible. Here are some comparative screenshots of the scaled space textures in v2.0, courtesy of @RadGH Comparative Scaled Space Screenshots SVT v2.2.0 Change log Update for 1.6.1 Fixed mountain texture issue Added the workaround to fix black terrain with Sigma Dimensions If you don't want rocks, trees, cactus' and other scatter objects to be solid, remove the "EnableColliders" cfg in the SVT/configs folder. REQUIREMENTS: KOPERNICUS https://github.com/Kopernicus/Kopernicus/releases DOWNLOAD SVT To install: 1. Install Kopernicus https://github.com/Kopernicus/Kopernicus/releases and drop into your GameData folder. 2. Drop the SVT folder into your GameData folder. This mod is licensed CC BY-NC-ND Thank you to @Avera9eJoe and @Endraxial for the awesome scaled space planet textures. (that's half of this mods awesomeness!) If you would like to help keep my motivation up, please donate. Any amount Is amazing, really!
  10. Outer Planets Mod v2.2.5 This version of Outer Planets Mod has been built to work for KSP version 1.3.1 - 1.7.*. About 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. This mod is being developed and maintain by a group of collaborators, alongside and following the initial development of the mod creator, CaptRobau. Features Explore 15 new highly detailed planets and moons, all in a stock-a-like artstyle. Discover never before seen worlds, such as a sub-satellite, 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. 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. Extensive third-party mod integration means you can play OPM with a whole range of other mods. Download You can either manually download and install Outer Planets Mod via the button and installation instructions below or by installing it automatically via CKAN (first-party support of CKAN is provided and new releases should automatically be indexed by CKAN in due course). Installation Instructions Extract the GameData folder found in the downloadable .zip directly into your Kerbal Space Program install directory. If located correctly, the OPM and CTTP directories should be found at: \Kerbal Space Program\GameData\OPM & \Kerbal Space Program\GameData\CTTP Dependencies The following KSP mods must be installed prior to using Outer Planets Mod (ensure you install the correct version of the dependencies for your version of KSP): Kopernicus Module Manager Community Terrain Texture Pack - bundled within OPM Supported Mods Custom Barn Kit Community Resource Pack Distant Object Enhancement PlanetShine Research Bodies Visual Mods By default, Outer Planets Mods does not come with any included visual pack to support EVE or Scatterer. There are a few mods that add these atmospheric visual enhancements to OPM as follows: Stock Visual Enhancements - Retextures the Gas Giants and adds atmospheric scatter and cloud support to all atmospheric bodies. Does not apply effects if Pood's OPM-VO is installed also. Pood's Outer Planets Mod - Visual Overhaul - Retextures the Gas Giants and adds atmospheric scatter and cloud support to all atmospheric bodies. Not been updated in a while so your milage may vary.

  11. Welcome to the Official Release thread for After Kerbin. After Kerbin is based on the Stock solar system, but 4 billion years into the future, adding highly detailed and intuitive planets to your game. We are in the process of setting up a DMP server. Spread the word! Overview: This mod aims to add a completely new adventure as you begin on Duna (which has Kerbin's properties for ease) and explore and uncover the secrets of the future stock planets. This mod adds highly detailed, 4k planets, each come with their own EVE and Scatterer configurations. Every single planet and moon has been adjusted and changed. Even Jool. All planets have been tested and I have made sure both rockets and spaceplanes can function on each of them. System Requirements: 5GB of RAM KSP 64 bit Donations are never asked for, but always appreciated! Help buy me another pizza if you enjoy the mod "Only during the last breath of life does the mind truly understand how lonely a species really is. Floating. In the dark. Guarded by nothing but the very nemesis which plagues the planet - loneliness, darkness, death." - Source Unknown, Year 7510, Solitude. FAQ: Is this planet mod compatible with present day mods? Yep! Even the visual mods will work together (they didn't with my previous planet mod), meaning you can install nearly any planet mod except those that also replace the home planet. How much RAM do I need for this mod? It varies. I recommend around 5GB at least. If you struggle, lower your texture quality. Watch @TheBeardyPenguin progress through conquering the Kerbal system for the final time in the hopes of saving kerbalkind. DELTA V MAP This mod follows the CC-BY-NC-ND licence. Thank you for downloading!
  12. Welcome to EventHorizon. What this mod is about EventHorizon is a planetpack that adds in a Blackhole-system inspired which is inspired by the movie "Interstellar". I loved Interstellar, the visuals, especially how Gargantua looked like. When @Artyomka15's Kargantua fell into incompatibility, it was sad. So after some time I decided to make my own take on the Gargantua system. Now over a year later, here we are with Murph, a Black hole with a totally appropriate name. What is featured in this mod. 19 new planetary bodies. 2 new star system 1 Blackhole system Functional wormholes (Thank the Kopernicus developers for that on) Custom science for ever celestial body Custom Planetary Icons(no boring stock dots) A custom lava ocean-texture (not just a red stock ocean) Handmade Blackhole visuals (and a reason to use those fancy high tech high DeltaV engines) Where you can download the mod. https://github.com/GrandProtectorDark/Event-Horizon/releases Installation Instructions How to use the Wormholes Some Images Some recommended mods to be used alongside EventHorizon Mod Support - Event Horizon has custom wormhole locations for the following planet packs that replace the Stock-System BeyondHome WhirligigWorld BeforeKerbin AfterKerbin AlternisKerbolRekerjiggered GPP Evolution SLIPPIST-1 - Planet packs that replace the home-system that aren't listed here are supported by placing the Stock system-wormhole in solar orbit -Real Solar System is not supported - Custom Science for the HabitabilityCheck Experiment from EnduranceShip - Guaranteed* stability when playing with Principia (only guaranteed when the home-system is the stock system) -Antimatter and LqdDeuterium/LqdHe3 can be found in selected regions (When using a mod that needs "CommunityResourcePack") Special thanks to: @Thomas P. not only for Kopernicus itself, but also for adding the ability to make wormholes. @The White Guardian for INSTANTIATOR without which Murph would just be a sad black sphere. @Pkmniako for helping me learn how to make a fancy accretion disk The Kopernicus Discord for being so helpful.

  13. What is this? The first part of my Low Light Levels (LLL/3L) series It's a planet/"star" pack that adds 2 brown dwarfs 6 planets and 3 moons. Bodies: -Brün: A bright brown dwarf that would almost have been a red dwarf, but it wasn't that lucky and still fell into the L class -Xing: The first planet of Brün, a cold non-habitable tidal locked water world. -Yurff: The second planet of Brün, a Mun sized planet with some special rings and a hilly but cratered surface. -Bäz: The third planet of Brün, way farther out there is Bäz. a gas giant half the size and mass of Jool with magnificent rings. -Colgo: The icy inner moon of Bäz. Almost similar to Eeloo -Æger: The outermost moon of Bäz, it shares similar characteristics with Duna, and it has an extraordinary name. -Ømis: The fourth and outermost planet of Brün, Its an icy covered with cracks super Kerbin with a thin atomosphere. Its radius is 1,5 times greater than Kerbin -Ve: A small Minmus sized moon orbiting around Ømis with weird surface features -Tersa: The second Brown dwarf of this pack. It is a cool T type brown dwarf. -Gren: The innermost planet of Tersa. A Mun like planet covered in darkness with not much to see on its surface. -Jyhe: The outermost planet of Tersa. It shares the same characteristics with Gren and is even darker. The series -3LR - you are looking at it right now -3LB - A pack with a binary white dwarf and magnetar neutron star, and a whole lot of planets to explore Dev thread(contains spoilers): Download Spacedock: https://spacedock.info/mod/2269/Low Light Levels Red Dependencies Kopernicus: (optional) Kopernicus Expansion (footprints): https://github.com/StollD/KopernicusExpansion-Continued (optional) EVE: https://github.com/WazWaz/EnvironmentalVisualEnhancements/releases (optional) scatterer: https://spacedock.info/mod/141/scatterer Trailer/ Kottabos Review Screenshots License https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0/
  14. 6THP Renewed About This is a more improved version of my first planet pack It's a small but decent pack. It adds: -Yela: A cold yellow gas giant. Its existence was unknown for a long time, but scientists managed to find it. -Ucko: A small asteroid moon in low orbit around Yela, it has a small sphere of influence making it sometimes hard to get an encounter. -Ela: An icy world covered with endless sheets of ice and a thin atmosphere. The view is rather beautiful when on the correct side. -Molee: The outermost moon. Its surface is covered with large impact craters, making for some interesting hills. Hope you enjoy!

  15. Ecumenopolis is the concept of a planetwide city. Ecumenopolis Ecumenopolis is a planet pack containing a planet-wide city Ecumenopolis and its frozen moon Ithil, focusing on quality rather than quantity Ecumenopolis and Ithil have a rich surface with a significant variety of buildings and rocks. My inspirations for the planet orbit were coruscant from star wars and trantor from fundation. When landed on Ecumenopolis, a city ressembling blade runner appear to the eyes of the kerbal. A picture is worth a thousand words Download Ecumenopolis Installation instruction Ecumenopolis is still in 1.7.3, download the 1.7 version of each mods. Extract the GameData folder found in the downloadable .zip directly into your Kerbal Space Program install directory.

  16. 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.

  17. 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 TWB is NOT meant to played with Principia, but you can install both and see what happens *Extrasolar is known to break the scatterer sunflares in TWB. Check page 9 in this thread for a workaround. 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.

The names of celestials and biomes are most certainly not blatant references to TV/cartoon/anime/games/people/other mods and if you think they are, you are just imagining things
  18. The ugly black ring from the surface of Tekto I recently started playing KSP with OPM. but while playing I noticed that the Kopernicus rings don't get affected by the Scatterer atmosphere of Sarnus or Tekto, this bothered me a bit.. Is there a way to fix this? And if I can't fix it myself, when is it getting fixed then? (sorry if i'm a bit impatient ) I would really like to know what and why. My apologies if there is already getting worked on it. Thanks. RJ. oh and I have KSP 1.7.3
  19. Download at Spacedock Download at GitHub Discuss at Discord Requires Kopernicus, and Kopernicus Expansions Continued RegionalPQSMods (In version 0.6.0 and 0.7.0, Kopernicus Expansions comes with the mod, you don't need to download it. Make sure you delete the old version of the mod before installing the new version when updating.) 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: These pictures showcase Scatterer, which is NOT supported right now. PLANNED FEATURES: Asteroids and comets. (Potential early-game landing destinations.) Science Definitions Keep up to date with newer observations Better Scatterer and EnvironmentalVisualEffects compatibility. INTERSTELLAR CONSORTIUM: As of v0.7.0, Seven Worlds of SLIPPIST-1 now supports Interstellar Consortium. There's a settings file in GameData/SLIPPIST-1/SlippistSettings.cfg. Open it with notepad, and you'll find a single setting option: "System Placement = Home." The two options are "Home" and "Exoplanet." If you wish to play from the planet Kerbin and have SLIPPIST-1 be an extrasolar destination like some other star system mods, such as OtherWorlds for example, you must change it to "System Placement = Exoplanet" and the system will be spawned 428 au away from the stock Sun as defined by the Interstellar Consortium guidelines However, for a more cohesive experience when using multiple planet packs, I recommend installing the IC plugin, so that you can play on SLIPPIST-1 and have the stock system or even play starting from one of the other homeworlds supported by Interstellar Consortium.

  20. Status Update as of 8/12/2019 I will be releasing the mod ASAP in an early state to gain feedback on it. Many parts of it are incomplete, such as lack of biome maps and some terrain overhauls. Scatterer is not compatible at the moment because I'm focused on making the planets themselves playable before I add visuals. Recent Changelog - 8/12/2019 -Updated multiple pressure gradients of certain objects -reworked Ola's terrain, still some glaring issues that need fixing before release -Joule's texture has been updated Known issues -Bodies appear black in the RnD building, and the main menu body appears black when returning to the main menu. -Occasional seams that only appear in the map, but not on the surface. -I'm bad at scatterer, so the atmospheres look way thicker than they really are. Will fix. -I'm not sure how often this will be updated, but I'll try to get around to it every once in a while. Reason - college. To Do -Add the rest of the planned system -Add hidden planets (good luck finding em) -Fix seriously bad-looking terrain on some bodies -Finish Biome maps -Touch up early versions of some bodies -Make proper scatterer configs (gonna be a while) Screenshots and Bodies Myna, the new Mun. Very green. Klip, much larger and heavier than Minmus. Filled with hills and some sharp ridges. Grasse, a heavy rock close to Eve's old orbit. It doesn't look pleasant from space, but it makes for a great drive. Bedu, a gas dwarf close to Moho's orbit. It harbors two small moons, neither of which have atmospheres. Kase, one of them, can be seen here. Cinder, a moon made of popcorn. Confirmation needed. Argent, a planet so close to the sun that its surface has been blasted away. Touch up in progress. Aeris and Sedra. Props to anyone who can guess what show I based them off of. They were only shown for a few seconds and the surface of Aeris for a few minutes in the first episode. The water was not visible from space, but I added it because it looks nicer. Bit, Moon of Byte. 1/8 the size, too. Vita and one of its moons, Ola (serious work needed on terrain at the moment) Joule, the new Jool (needs polar distortions still). Ohm, a large moon with a thin atmosphere. It has high peaks for its size, and a lot of islands. Amp, a very large rocky moon without an atmosphere. Rework is mostly complete, just messing with colors and a few areas of terrain. Spark, a spherical asteroid only a few km across. I'd remake it, but the surface is too fun. Volt, a large desert moon. The atmosphere isn't as thick as it looks, I'll fix it eventually. Ira, a small, dense ice moon. It has a thin atmosphere, but planes shouldn't be too hard to land here if they're light enough. No oxygen. Elias, the current replacement for Eeloo. It will be moved out much farther than its current position. Major overhaul in progress, unless someone actually likes the way this thing looks. Any thoughts/criticism? Please share it with me, I need every bit I can get.
  21. Skaian System Planet Pack First, I want to thank @The White Guardian for letting me use his mods to learn and @Thomas P. for the Kopernicus Examples, and also Andrew Hussie to make the webcomic this mod is inspired on! This is my first planet pack so there might be some issues with the developement and I might need some help if someone is kind enough to comment (With all the credit). So, this mod is based on the different planets of the webcomic Homestuck by Andrew Hussie, with Skaia being the center of the mod. Spoiler alert for those who are interested in Homestuck. So, let's meet the planets shall we? (Btw I have no idea how to do the posts) First: Skaia! This blue, gassy marble somewhere in the orbit of Duna has the characteristic of being exactly like Kerbin at some point, being a semihabitable planet with no soil. This planet baffles Kerbals by its blueness, and the mysterious influence the planet has on it's moons, changing lumps of rocks into good ol' habitable planets. Next: Typheus, also known as the Land of Wind And Shade! This even bluer marble is one of the satellites of Skaia, scoured mostly flat by past storms, thought to have been provoked by the influence of the moon's primary. It's thought that before these winds cleaned the planet, this moon used to be rainy and cloudy, and maybe it had life, evidenced by the lakes of pure oil dotting the surface of the planet; and it has old ruins of a sewage system, evidencing sapient beings. It's the most coveted planet of the Kerbol system, specially by the United States of Kamerica. So, this it's waht I have managed to make! Future features I want to include (Green mostly done, orange being worked on, red still not made, blue maybe not included) Lands of Heat and Clockwork, of Light and Rain, and Frost and Frogs. Prospit and Derse The Nobles and Trolls planets. So, this is my planet pack! I hope you like it and I would be so grateful if someone reports any bugs (I'ts my first planet pack so it's likely there are) or could help me out writing the code! -Download the mod: -Dropbox Thanks for reading! :o)
  22. Outer Kerbin An expansion to the Kerbin system Have you completely explored Kerbin? Have you mined Minmus for your refuel stations? Have you explored every anomaly at the surface of the Mun? But going to Eve or Duna isn't your kind of game? Than "Outer Kerbin" might be what you are looking for! You get to explore more, close to home! Outer Kerbin adds the planet "Phybi" to the Kerbin sphere of Influence. Phybi is in orbit around Kerbin just beyond Minmus and might be tricky to capture on your first few attempts. (SMA 65000000, Inc 12) Orbiting around this planet is the small-sized moon called "Iszmi". Both bodies are vacuum planets and have low-gravity somewhere between the numbers of the Mun and Minmus. Both bodies have a full world biome map, so theres enough for you to explore. Delta-V Calculations Numbers are calculated based on quick runs. No circularization around Phybi. Straight to Surface. So extra dV is adviced! From Lower Kerbin Orbit to Phybi Surface = 2520 m/s From Phybi Surface to Kerbin Re-Entry = 980 m/s Phybi Surface Touch & Return to Kerbin = 3500 m/s INITIAL RELEASE DEPENDENCY Kopernicus COMPATABILITY Outer Kerbin should be compatible with all planetpack that do NOT alter the stock system's planet locations. Please notify me when it's not complatible with another planetpack! Confirmed to work with: Atoren, DwarfPlanetsPlus, KerbolOrigins, OPM, Planet Cyran, The Plod System, The Varuta System , Trans-Keptunian, Moho Moons Mod and Miporia Planet Pack. IMAGE GALLERY Imgur Album VIDEO Outer Kerbin Preview Trip to Iszmi LICENCE Outer Kerbin is licenced under Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 4.0 International THANKING the awesome people over at the Kopernicus Discord for their help on getting to know how to create planets for KSP. @SnailsAttack @Gameslinx @Poodmund and others who've proven to be an helping hand! A Special shoutout to @Kottabos for his awesome video preview of Outer Kerbin on YT.! Give him a subscribe on his channel!

  23. _____________________ 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 _____________________ ( https://imgur.com/gallery/vKGxl7c _______________________ Recommended mods _____________________ - by Amarius1 - by Nils277 - by Valerian _______________________ Lets meet the new planets! _____________________ Faz: Harvest: Rega: Sarvin Keelon: Corolet: __________________________________ The team! ________________________________ @amarius1 - Original Owner & Lead Developer @Mythical Donuts - Developer @zherdev - Developer @Nils277 - Part Creator @Olympic1 - Career Compatibility & Tweaks @The White Guardian - Career Compatibility, EVE Clouds & Tweaks @smokytehbear - FF Ribbons @Eriksonn - Principia Compatibility And more! __________________________________ Thank you ________________________________ Thomas - For developing and mantaining Kopernicus.

  24. Salus: A J1407b Analogue [1.7.3] What does this mod add? Salus: A large gas giant out past Jool with the largest rings Kerbals have ever seen. It is thought that a close encounter with a rogue planet gave its orbit its inclination, as well as its current ring system. Visit soon, they're not expected to last for much longer. They've already begun collapsing into moons. Dauble: An icy world harboring a subsurface ocean, with plumes spraying out world-wide. Dauble is nested inside Salus's rings, providing quite the skyline. Dulus: A small moon orbiting rather close to Dauble. This flattened moon is collecting material from Salus's rings across its equator forming a massive equatorial ridge. Don't slip! Duran: A captured asteroid that orbits far from Salus, well past its rings. It's inclined orbit gives the best possible view of Salus. Be sure to bring your camera!

  25. Hello, UranianBlue here from Delta Sigma Mods!! I have been starting a new project that will create extra star systems. Because of the extreme distances, I recommend using the Interstellar Extended mod. Also, if you have not seen my Heidon Mod, try it out! Pics will come soon. Release will be in May or June. Post your suggestions down here; this is your chance to alter the mod to your preferences.
