  1. NO LOGS, NO SUPPORT. This solar system completely replaces the stock system. LATEST RELEASE uses Kopernicus v1.4.3-2 Changelog: v1.6.3.0 REQUIRES GPP_TEXTURES 4.2.0 Fixes to KK sites Added isles for KSP 1.4 launch sites (Larkes and Woomerang) Prevent these launch sites from appearing on Gael in GPP Scondary Added KK launch site for testing rovers Kerbinside is now compatible while playing with GPP_Secondary installed GPP no longer indiscriminately deletes/unloads planets and planet packs that have loaded before itself. It specifically deletes only the stock bodies so planet packs such as After Kerbin, Before Kerbin, Extrasolar, and even GEP, will remain loaded without having to perform MM voodoo Accommodations for new features in GEP 1.0 Updated EVE configs for GPP + OPM installations Minor fixes to Gael in GPP Secondary Renamed Sigma skybox files for Sigma Replacements/Texture Replacer compatibility Fixed some scatterer issues Made Lili 20% more awesome Added detection in resource configs for Kerbin vs Gael for GPP Secondary Terrain Detail Presets are now built into GPP. (May require a fresh settings file.) 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. DOWNLOADS GPP Download GPP Textures Download Optional No Volumetric Clouds (for better performance) Install instructions, Wiki, and other Important Information can be found HERE Tune in everyday except Tuesday at 8:00pm UTC for GPP career action and live support with @RocketPCGaming and the GPP developers. Thank you to @OhioBob @JadeOfMaar @Poodmund @TheRagingIrishman @Sigma88 for taking time out of their lives and helping me with this endeavor. I probably would have never finished if it wasn't for you guys. It has been a lot of fun. If you would like to help keep my motivation up, then you can donate. Any amount Is amazing, really!

  2. 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 ( DOWNLOAD Unfortunately, there are too many files to have on CKAN.

  3. 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. DOWNLOAD FOR KSP 1.3.1!

  4. _____________________ 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.

  5. *KEEP IN MIND THIS MOD IS STILL IN DEV - THIS IS NOT THE FINISHED PRODUCT, PLEASE REVIEW THIS MOD AFTER 0.8 OR 0.9 IS RELEASED* 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 Cluster", a collection of 125+ celestial objects, 15+ 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) USE this version of Kopernicus (RELEASE 3 - 1.3.1-3) !

The Kerbol system is now comparable to the real solar system. Go to this page for more info! NOVA KIRBANI SYSTEM The Nova Kirbani System is the closest star system to the Kerbol system. It is an analogue to the real-life Alpha Centauri System. It consists of 3 stars: Kirb (a G2V yellow main sequence star), Kelin (a K1V orange main sequence star), and Kernim (a M6V red main sequence star), each with its own planetary system. Go to this page for more info! KORMIN SYSTEM The Kormin System is currently the smallest system in the game. It consists of Kormin, a brown dwarf (failed star), and its only planet, Tide. Go to this page for more info! KEROLON SYSTEM The Kerolon System is a close binary between Kerolon (A-type main sequence) and Kerilim (K-type main sequence). The binary is surrounded by a system of 8 planets. Go to this page for more info! KELNIS SYSTEM The Kelnis System is a planetary system that revolves around the ultracool red dwarf star called Kelnis. The system contains 7 nearly Kerbin sized worlds, with three of them in the habitable zone, and three of them capable of supporting some sort of life. The system is based on Trappist-1. Go to this page for more info! KORLON SYSTEM The Korlon System consists of a K-type subgiant star nearing the end of its life. The outer layers of the star have already begun to drift off in a brilliant planetary nebula. The star does not possess any planets in the current stage of the mod. KELARIS SYSTEM The Kelaris System is a ternary star system consisting of two F-type (Yellow-White) stars and one G-type (yellow) star: Kelaris (F7 Supergiant), Kirlim (F6V), and Kerbos (G8V). Go to this page for more info! THE ALL THE ALL is one of the most mysterious celestials in the Kerbal Universe. Is it a star? A black hole or something else? No one seems to know it. The only thing Kerbals know is that "Light can only exist with a source to provide it. Likewise, the continued existence of matter requires The All to maintain it. The All is one, and the one provides for all.". Some astronomers think some kind of object orbits THE ALL. It is the most distant of all the objects in KSS.

  6. 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 v2.2.1 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.

  7. ↑ horrible logo that will be remade ↑ This mod will add 100 bodies in a cluster orbiting far from Kerbol. Designed for modded mid and late game exploration, colonisation and other fun and wackiness. yes this is a divider line 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. 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 (1.6x stock sun radius, 2x gravity, 2x brightness). 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 Quaternary System Traverse - A M1V orangish red dwarf orbiting roughly in the center 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 - 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. I should probably point out now that this entire thing is by no means (or even close to) being realistic... This is probably going to trigger a lot of people but that is the design... I really want to integrate my personal worldbuilding fantasy plus that making a mod would look really good on my game design college portfolio... These will be constantly changed and updated as the development progresses (so eventually there will be EVE clouds covering my terrible textures) The Dawn Cluster seen from the edge of it's SOI (currently the color of most stars haven't been changed) Tengu. It's even brighter when you actually fly there Hyperion. It initially had a very horrible color map, but now it's all good now... Horu the angery fireball Keter. Summit, the only chocolate ball right now that has a ring Gersemi Fantasy, a small but not the smallest habitable world Yggdrasil. It's bright color is resulted from exotic lifefroms on the surface Sandalphon, a "wet" moon Zhuque. Was initially aiming for a "terraformed Duna" but then it became something else Ebott. Basin, with only 2 huge land chunks (not shown: the other continent) Wyvern the blue dwarf planet Baihu. Ouroboros. Sagen, somewhat Titan like The Inner Dawn System The Cluster at it's current state I Intent to not release this mod until everything is more or less finished (beside sciencedefs obviously). However, if you are interested in contributing to sciencedefs, click HERE to help! Overall progress Celestial body config files 100/100 Textures for body that has a surface 83/83 Gas giant textures 8/8 Sunspot textures 9/9 Biomes 65/91 EVE configs 63/63 Scatterer configs 62/62 General configs 17/17 Bundled Parts 1/3 Roadmap Initial Release Flags and decals Screenshots for LMS/SigmaLoadingScreens Make a few super long ranger antenna parts to be bundled Resources configs A proper logo (VERY IMPORTANT) The mod will be released in a modular way, meaning there will be a core download containing only necessary files (no planets) while each system can be downloaded individually. This allows players to choose what they want to play with (since this mod is very RAM intensive) and allows for an easier way to integrate future expansion packs. Future Plans Surface anomalies/easter eggs Surface particles and comet trials More EVE effects INSTANTANITOR objects KSPedia diagrams Figure out how to make LandClasses work and add terrain scatterers, and better PQS in general Research body and DOE compatibility Compatibility with GN and KSS Remake some early planets Science definitions for stock and DMagic (hopefully will finish before [insert an overused joke about something that obviously isn't going to happen]) More systems A Q&A section that is oddly out of place Q: When will this be released? A: Again I am not release this mod until I'm satisfied and think it is ready for reviews. Q: This looks awesome! I'd like to help in making this planet pack! A: First of all, I'd like to give you my highest level of gratitude for assisting me in this ambitious endeavor. If you want to help out, just reply in this thread and talk to me with the details. If you are a modmaker and want me to support resources, please also reply below! Q: Will this be compatible with [insert planet pack here]? A: Compatibility shouldn't be a big problem, due to Dawn's high orbit, it will work fine with OPM, Extrasolar, GPP_secondary, Other Worlds and most packs that replaces the stock system, as long as there are no bodies with the same name. However, it is unlikely that The World Beyond will be GN and KSS compatible in the first release, but it's something that is planned. Q: Why do some of the names of stars/planets (especially those in the Traverse system) sounds so familiar? Have I heard some of them somewhere else before? A: Oh no no no... *nervous laughter* What are you talking about, those names are hand picked and it took days for me to figure out a good name, and they are most certainly not blatant references to TV/cartoon/anime/games/people and I'm totally not planning to make more of those references in biome names... That is just your imagination because I definitely did not run out of names and those names simply popped into my mind, I mean come on, have you ever heard of something named Ori and Frisk before? Or a comet named Tiamat before? No, right? Exactly... Q: So when exactly can we except to download this mod? A: Well if you want a date, then 2114 January 12nd Changelog *right now there is no release, so this only exists for documentation and consistency reasons* v0.9 (2018-04-07) BETA RELEASE +EVE clouds and auroras applied to all atmospheric bodies, along with some glows to rocky bodies +CRP, EL, TheGoldStandard and FarFutureTechnologies compatible resource config for all bodies +normalmaps for gas

    [1.4.3] Extrasolar v1.7.5 [5/9/18]

    WHAT IS THIS? The Extrasolar mod adds the red dwarf star "Valentine" to the Kerbol System. Orbiting Valentine are several new planets and moons to discover. Because Valentine is so far away, you will probably have to download some mods in order to make the trip easier. PLEASE DO NOT INSTALL THIS FROM CKAN! SCREENSHOTS HEBA: SOLYTH: FUST: MIR: LOMINA: MORE LIST OF PLANETS AND MOONS RECOMMENDED MODS KSP Interstellar Extended: Adds tons of advanced propulsion systems and makes the transfer from the Sun to Valentine a bit quicker. BetterTimeWarp: Maybe even a necessity. Adds greater time warp options that really help with making your transfers faster and less boring. Project Orion Nuclear Pulse Engine: Adds two very interesting nuclear engines into the game based on Project Orion and Project Medusa. After Kerbin: Escape the flames of Archangel and create a new home for Kerbalkind in the Valentine System.

  9. 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 1.4.3-2 (requires Kopernicus 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 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.

  10. Alien Space Programs Re-Visited Updated edition of Alien Space Programs for Kerbal Space Program 1.4.3 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 1.4.3 and a matching version of Kopernicus, tested fully on Kopernicus 1.4.3-2 and this is the minimum version required. 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. 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.

  12. 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: Make sure to read the instructions to install and don't forget the surface textures! If your planets have no surface textures it's because you didn't do step #3 in the DL. Image of main menu when EVE/Kopernicus are correctly installed 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.
  13. The More Habitable Planets Mod (for 1.2.2) Warning: This mod is in development and contains trillions of bugs, if you find one of them, I'll make sure to fix it! This mod is focused on making 10 more habitable planets than just Kerbin and Laythe (Laythe might not be habitable to kerbals, but there's bound to be life there.) In 0.2.0 you get to explore the far reaches of space near a brown dwarf! Make sure you download to get the full experience of MHP!
  14. 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 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! Most of the stuff here is WIP, but I'll be posting images about the redone planets and other information. I'll sometimes be streaming on twitch in the process of creating the planets. Downloads: > Download Alpha 0.4.1 LaserSailModule source WARNING: You must download the correct versions of Scatterer, EnviromentalVisualEnhancments and CTTP (1.0.2) DISCLAIMER: For the moment, the SPRITE Laser Sail will be bundeled with Other Worlds Reboot as to wait for the completion of both projects The Cercani System planets, simplified. Two moons not shown. Planets and moons to scale To-Do List: - Laser Highways (Rewritting laser sail module and creating GUI) - Check PQSs mods of Kevari, Crons, Niko, Prima and Secunda - Enhance Secunda's Map - Finish clouds of Nienna, and Secunda (Very good now) - Add Geyser to Prima - Add easter eggs (?) Last Version Changelog (alpha 0.4 and 0.4.1): > Balanced the part costs of the laser sail, so now it makes more sense in career mode! > Put the parts of the laser sail in the correct spots in the RnD Tech Tree > Added Kevari, Crons, Niko, Prima and Secunda, though not in their best states. > Added aurorae to Pequar (Currntly green, may change color to red) > Added a RCS pack for the sail, so to manouver better and pinpoint flybies (Needs some work) > Now OWR uses CTTP v1.0.3 onwards > SigmaLoadingScreens compatible, enjoy loading screens like this (1.3.1) > 1.4.3 Compatible > Fixed ground textures and shininess > Added cirrus clouds to Nienna > Redid Inter-Vision's Flag. Now it doesn't say "Ointer". And OWR's flag too...

    [1.2.X] [Kopernicus] Planet Cyran

    It was about time for me to release my first planet pack! Introducing... Cyran! Introducing, from left to right: Cyran - Infernas - Dres(remade) - Iltan - Kivlan - Sennim - Protorin - Glacia - Zerto - Crysalis. The moons in this image are scaled, Cyran is not (otherwise the Cyran in the image would have to be 16000 pixels in diameter...) So, what do these planets look like? Glacia Crysalis Protorin Zerto Sennim Kivlan Iltan Dres Infernas Cyran And last but not least, Cyran itself: a large, orange gas giant orbiting in between Duna and Jool. Cyran is unique because due to the decay of radioactive elements in the planet's core, it is emitting enough heat to melt anything that gets too close. Therefore be very, very careful with aerobreaks here, you might find yourself boiling up before you even get close to the atmosphere. This does mean any orbiting station can cut back on the heating fee, of course. Any more sweet details? Well, certainly! Check out the (first version of) Cyran's trailer! Features Version 1.0 - Initial release - Added Cyran and a bunch of moons - Added particle system to Infernas - Biomes for most moons Version 2.0 (May 25th, 2016) - Added (partially complete) ScienceDefs - Updated Cyran to 1.1.2 - Added a remade Dres - Support for Distant Object Enhancement added - Support for PlanetShine added - First steps made for E.V.E support - Increased the size of Iltan - Increased size of Iltan's atmosphere - Increased temperature on Iltan - Added biome maps to all moons - Custom ocean textures added to Sennim - Terrain scatter added to all moons - Custom terrain scatter added to Sennim - Fixed atmosphere rim of Sennim being orange instead of green - Fixed Sennim having an incorrect atmosphere color on the banner - Official flags for Cyran have been added - In-game screenshots made - Moved the changelog to the Readme.txt file. Version 3.0 (December 26th, 2016) - Compatibility with KSP 1.2.X. - Remade Kivlan and Zerto entirely. - Three new moons: Protorin, Glacia and Crysalis. - Art pass on Iltan. - Scatterer support! - EVE support! (Big thanks to Galileo for letting me use textures from SVE and helping me with the configs!) - Overhaul on Infernas' particle system (thanks you, SAS123!) - Many new science defenitions (thank you, MinimalMinmus!) - Many new biomes to explore and better biomes in general. - Many other Kopernicus mods are now supported - Some easter eggs have been added... - Full KSPedia support! - New surface textures, using CTTP (like OPM) - New heatcurve for Cyran, ships now heat up with a certain amount of Kelvin per frame below an altitude of 5 million meters, the intensity scales with distance. - Cyran now has a (cloudy) 'surface texture' instead of a void. - Cyran's rings have been overhauled to display the decay of Infernas more realistically (thank you, SAS123!) and a new ring has been added. - New lava texture on Infernas, as well as a new particle texture. - Improved scaledversion textures. And still on the to-do list are: - Missing Science Defenitions - Asteroid spawning system Alright, alright, where do I download this? Right over on SpaceDock. The mod has been updated to work with 1.2, and support for PlanetShine, DistantObjectEnhancement, EVE, Scatterer and TextureReplacer is included. (Kerbals can remove their helmets on Iltan) Support Cyran? @JadeOfMaar has created an awesome signature banner for Cyran! LINK

    Starstuff - A K.S.S. Tale

    *Old Banner. Will be changed* Kerbal-kind has always been intrepid and willing to blaze trails. An incident stopped this behavior for a long, long while. However, with a little help, the Kerbals are ready to blaze a trail to the stars... This fan work is the first time I've ever written something that is not a short story. Feedback on my writing methods and other things are highly encouraged. Also, Starstuff will avoid spoilers for the upcoming KSS storyline. Do not fret. Thanks to the KSS Team and Supporters for inspiring me to do this. Check out the mod HERE! Prologue: This Post. Interlude 1: HERE Interlude 2: Coming end of May. Interlude 3: Coming mid-June. Chapter 1: Waiting on KSS 0.8 Chapter 2: Coming Soon... PROLOGUE
  17. This is a continuation of my mod Realistic Remodel. (Almost) Real Solar System is kerbalized version of Real Solar System. It keeps the stock planets but changes them to be more realistic. The orbits and sizes of planets have been changed to be in the same ratios as our solar system. Some planets have been moved around to fill in some gaps, and names of some planets have been changed as well. A few color changes have been made, and more are planned. Kopernicus and Sigma Dimensions are required and OPM is highly recommended. Download Imgur Album Scaling: I have added a scaling feature using Sigma dimensions to allow you to change the difficulty according to you. The default setting is about 2.5x stock scale, while the atmospheric height and rotational period are the same, but this can always be changed in the settings file. Color Changes: Some of the planets have a had their color changed to be more similar to reality. Marcx (Previously Duna) have been changed to be more of a rusty color than a bright red. All four gas giants have slightly different colors, with Jool's being the most extreme. Compatibility: Distant Object Enhancement: Added configs to support color changes of planets. KSC Switcher: Added 4 additional launch sites around Kerbin. (In my testing the download from the RO repository here works) RemoteTech: Added an assortment of preset configs to choose from in the in-game settings. You can also create your own. Planned Features: Color change for other planets, including Vixen, and various moons. Support for visual mods. Maybe additional bodies. MIT License

  19. 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 v2.1.4 Change log Update for 1.4.2 Fixed KSC color again Fixed stock boulders without colliders showing up in game Better cliff texture for Kerbin Removed miniAVC. Install full AVC to get update notifications. 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 DOWNLOAD To install: 1. Install Kopernicus 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!
  20. ***Some unknown forces of the Universe (the Kraken) took down to original thread. I was waiting for it to be restored, but that doesn't seem to be the case. Either way, here's the new thread!*** Interstellar Adventure Revived (IA-Revived) is a continuation of the mod "Interstellar Adventure" by @amarius1. The pack adds in a total of 5 new solar systems, each one a near-realistic representation of their counterparts in our universe. These system are TRAPPIST-1, HD 219134, Mu Arae, K2-3, and PSR-B1257+12. Throughout all systems are 6 stars, 20 planets, 16 moons, and a comet. There are also two additional rogue planets, one inspired by Planet 9. Every object is named and presented in a realistic scale - all values are comparable to Earth but shrunk down to Kerbal scale. All the planets have been given a Kerbal flare to them to make them more interesting. Whether it's in their appearances or moons (all of which are hypothetical), these objects are more interesting but still very similar to their real-life counterparts. MUST be run in KSP x64-bit! List of Objects: ROGUE PLANETS TRAPPIST-1 NIOBE-AMPHION (HD 219134/HR 8832) CERVANTES (MU ARAE) K2-3 LICH (PSR B1257+12) UPCOMING FEATURES! While at version 1.2.9, IA-Revived has quite a lot of work ahead. Here are the features coming up soon. Those in green will be in the next update (1.3.0), those in blue in near-future versions, features in orange and coming later on, and those in red are...dubious. Completing the rest of the 1.3.0 features. Completion of the Lich system. Biomes! Biomes! Biomes! Working with Sigma Binary The Kepler-47 system DEVELOPMENT STATUS (AUGUST 18th) Pre-release 1.2.9 has been uploaded to Spacedock. Development on 1.3.0 will re-continue in a few weeks, after my trip to the Carolinas and the busy end-of-summer schedule. =================================================================================================================================================================================================== Download from SPACEDOCK ======================================================================================================================================================================= Version 1.2.0 Screenshots ======================================================================================================================================================================= Kottabos Games Review (Outdated): Fun Facts/Tips: Glauce is the only moon in the mod that may be detectable in real life, if such a moon like it exists. Braciaca is inspired by a study in late 2016 proving that the majority of rogue planets are frozen, orphaned Mars-sized worlds. Morena has a pretty small SOI. It is best not to encounter it with an eccentric orbit, or else you will fly by it too quickly to be captured. There were plans to make a new moon for Selphar, named Valgoh. However, I scrapped the idea when its height map was glitching up. Barcelon may be the new nesting place of the Kraken. Be warned. All planets orbit at 1/10th the distance they do in real life. Every planet and moon is 1/10th the size they would be in real life. However, the star sizes are proportional to Kerbol as they are to the Sun in real life. All main system stars are 1/1000th the distance they are in reality. The name for Trappist-1f was partially inspired by Hurricane Irene, a tropical cyclone that proved quite a nuisance for me back in 2011. During initial development, Cervantes was known as Alcides and the planets were named Iolaus, Iphicles, Hylas, and Megara. I may use those names for any planetary systems I find in the Hercules constellation. Lamancha went through FIVE re-texturings during the development of version 1.1.0. In fact, I did ANOTHER re-texture for 1.2.9/1.3.0.
  21. I just wrote a procedural galaxy generation app for Kopernicus. I am currently in the stage of expanding it to accommodate all the different major kinds of stars and a few minor ones. The program is functional and is currently being expanded. Full Imgur album here! My Co-Developer @seanth has largely taken over development. He's done awesome work already. You can thank him for the vast improvements TBG has received over the last few releases. And there is more to come! I'm still here though, and I've got plans Maximum recommended galaxy size: 200 stars. (KSP 64-Bit) THIS ALGORITHM SUPPORTS (OR WILL SUPPORT) Supports: -LoadingTipsPlus- By @JPLRepo Will Support: -Scatterer - By @blackrack (For use of the unique sunflares that scale properly!) DOWNLOAD FROM SPACEDOCK Seanth's Github Releases Special credit to @Red Iron Crown for fixing the width issue that has befuddled me for weeks Planned features (Not all will appear in future releases): License: GPL v2 Source: Available in the game Zip
  22. Intergalactic is an upcoming mod that aims to add galaxies to KSP, and also provides a new universe for your brave Kerbals to explore in. This has been in the works for a few months now, but I think it's finally stable enough for a dev thread of its own. Also, suggestions are appreciated Screenshots: An overview of the Universe: Progress Chart: Features Status The Kernis System Almost finished The Kreln System In development Visuals In development Also, please check out my youtube channel for occasional videos on the progress of this mod! Thanks to: @Thomas P. for maintaining and updating Kopernicus @The White Guardian for his Kopernicus tutorials @Gameslinx for his support and helping me debug a few issues @ProtoJeb21, @Artyomka15, @StarCrusher96 and others who have inspired me to create this mod And finally, please show some support for the mod by posting in the comments section below! At the moment, I really need some more motivation on developing this mod.
  23. 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. DELTA V MAP This mod follows the CC-BY-NC-ND licence. Thank you for downloading!
  24. Kerbal Exoplanets is a mod which aims to add strange new worlds to the game. It will add in some new star systems, all with exoplanets and moons orbiting them!

Unzip the zip directory titled "Kerbal Exoplanets (current version number)" 3. Move the folder named "Kerbal Exoplanets" to your GameData folder, or if you are installing visuals, move "BoulderCo", "EnvironmentalVisualEnhancements", and "scatterer". 4. Enjoy! Changelog: Thanks to: @Thomas P. for maintaining and updating Kopernicus @The White Guardian for his amazing tutorials on how to make planets, and helped me out on some issues with my own @OhioBob for his explanation on how to make realistic atmospheres, and his excel spreadsheet @blackrack and @Waz for making scatterer and EVE @Artyomka15 for making some awesome mods that have inspired me This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 4.0 International License.

    [1.2.X] [Kopernicus] Total Rebuild

    Time to introduce announce a new Kopernicus mod, one that changes everything: Total Rebuild! This is where we'll post updates on development as well as screenshots, ideas, that sort of thing. Expect a true page makeover for release. Current completion: 90% So what is 'Total Rebuild' exactly? True to it's name, it destroyes every stock KSP body save for Kerbin and the Sun, before adding a completely new planetary system, counting more bodies than the stock system, with currently 23 planets & moons on the planner versus stock KSP's 16 planets & moons, with possible planetary expansions in the future. What can I expect from it? Expect to find a new solar system to explore, with vast, diverse and unique worlds. It'll come with custom Scatterer and EVE configurations, as well as new, HD surface textures and nice ScaledVersion resolutions. Ergo: quality overload. Too demanding for your computer? Don't worry, we got you covered! The default package should be more than enough for your computer to handle, if it can take stock KSP it can take this mod as well. If your PC can already run KSP at max res plus stuff like EVE and Scatterer, then go ahead and install the quality upgrades provided with the mod! You can never have too much eyecandy. Any sweet pictures to show, TWG? Feast your eyes, Kerbals! Here's what we have so far! With the new EVE clouds: So who's in charge of this? Total Rebuild is being created by @The White Guardian and co-written by @Agent-Daniel_46 (winner of KCM3) What can I do? Any feedback (and ideas) is much, much appreciated! Download link
