  1. Edge of Eternity The stars have come and gone, but eternity has only just begun Trillions of years ago, the ICS Mercury departed to set up the first extrasolar colony. As it was en route, it encountered a temporal wormhole, into which it was pulled, hurling it both into the far future and untold distances away. In order to avoid the unstable wormhole's imminent collapse, the crew had no choice but to press forward on a journey far longer than the Mercury was ever meant to travel. Over the decades, more and more of the ship had to be cannibalized until they finally reached their destination: a binary system consisting of a red dwarf and a blue dwarf, hosting several planets including one that could possibly sustain them. Unfortunately, due to the ship's state of disrepair, the landing was hard and much was lost, sending them back to the pre-industrial age. While Haven was habitable, it was only barely so: UV radiation was abundant, it had no native life, the oxygen content was only 60% of Kerbin normal despite the denser atmosphere, and the temperature was low enough that major settlements were restricted to near the equator. Despite this, over time, they managed to regain their technology, and are now ready to look upwards to the unending abyss once again. Edge of Eternity is a WIP planet pack set near the end of the stelliferous era of the universe. Most stars are dead, and those that remain are low-mass red dwarfs (and the blue dwarfs they evolve into); Terminus being one of these blue dwarfs. The system favors flyby missions and probes due to the positioning of Haven in the system, and science is balanced against roughly 30% of stock for most worlds besides Haven (with a boost around Eterna and particularly Apep to respect the minimum tech requirements of getting science from there) At its current state of development it is highly WIP, with many worlds having only placeholder noise-based textures and no custom biomes, and there are doubtless a good few more bugs than you'd see in a completed planet pack. Everything, particularly balance-related things, is subject to change Beta download for those still interested: On Github Uses Sigma Replacements - Skybox for the starless void of the end-times (really rather immersion-breaking without it), and Custom Barn Kit to rebalance the DSN (including adding a fourth level) for a better antenna range progression (note: due to issues with how CBK handles configs, disabling the rebalance through the settings.cfg won't disable the CBK configs). Kronometer is also recommended for synching the clocks to Haven's day and year, as is Transfer Window Planner for planning transfer windows (some are rather unusual) Also contains CRP resource definitions, Kerbalism configs, PlanetShine configs, Scatterer atmospheres, and mostly functional EVE configs Diagrams and dV map: Future plans: near term (0.14 and 0.15) - add native 2.56x scale support, prometheus homeswitch option, custom contracts (those might get pushed to later though) long term (at some point before release) - science definitions, proper maps and biomes for all remaining planets, higher quality maps for all planets, kspedia, actually properly working EVE, more thorough balance testing, whatever other miscellany I discover I'll need to add post-release - (probably but depends on reception; my next major pack may take priority) EoE: Phoenix Cluster, an addon with a few extrasolar destinations to visit since other extrasolar packs don't fit thematically. (not very likely but maybe) Prelude to Eternity, set when the system was half its current age and Terminus was main sequence, homeworld of Revenant.
  2. THE MINOR PLANETS EXPANSION - 1.0.5 This One's for the Little Guys! I have worked on this mod for a few months now. It all started after I failed to find a mod that added analogues to various minor planets that was on par with something like OPM, or at the very least compatible, and the few mods I did find were all outdated. I took it upon myself to make a mod myself that would fill in these missing niches in the Stock+OPM system. Particularly, asteroids, comets, centaurs, and dwarf planets. I wrote down a list of nine objects, and now, four months later, I have now created my first planet pack! All of these new worlds were made from hand-drawn maps, with very little reliance on stealing from real world objects to ensure a stock-alike feel. This mod is made to be used along side OPM, think of it as an unofficial, fan-made expansion pack for OPM. The analogue list: Edas - Eros Vant - Vesta Zore - Psyche Lint/Mikey - 67P Crokslev - Chariklo Geito - Halley's Comet Havous - Haumea Kal - Namaka Ki'KI - Hi'iaka Mracksis - Makemake Flake - MK2 (not really, but it's a moon around a Makemake analogue) Ervo - Eris Archae - Dysnomia Soden - Sedna Lon - No Real-World Analogue Images: SpaceDock Link: Planets Expansion?ga=<Game+3102+'Kerbal+Space+Program'> This mod can also be acquired through CKAN! License - MIT New objects are in the planning phase, but will come after bug fixing/balancing updates. MPE 1.0.5 Update Bug Smashing Episode 1 - Havous and Crokslev's rings no longer flicker - Havous' rings now have twice the vertices and thus are less angular - Archae's InSpaceHigh raised to 20,000 meters above sea level Known bugs: Rings flicker in previous versions (before MPE 1.0.5). Make sure you have the current version- ring flicker could be a serious issue if you have visual epilepsy! The moons Kal and Ki'Ki seem to have some physics issues in local space for some people. MPE has not been tested on Kopernicus Continued for 1.9.1
  3. What is this? The sequel to the planet pack Low light levels Red. The pack adds in two binary stars and 11 planets and moons. Bodies: Rubo: A white dwarf that was once a mighty star like Kerbol. Loth: A fiery world with oceans of lava that are slowly cooling in the dim light of Rubo. Ufgo: A tidal locked desert with old dried up oceans and ice on the farside. Crof: A small world even more forgotten than Dres. It has a cratered cold surface. Giza: The biggest gas giant in the system, but still small. Most of its mass got lost in the past. Micry: The only moon still orbiting Giza. It has a cratered dead surface. Zec: A gas giant with strong winds and two very clear bands. Thesi: First moon of Zec, it has a thick atmosphere and small oceans of liquid methane. Pece: An extraordinary asteroid, it is in a binary dance with its partner Poco. Poco: The other asteroid roughly the same as Pece, also orbiting the barycenter. Wilco: One of the most mighty objects in the universe, with the size of the KSC and the name of a scientist his dog. Ria: A cold icy world with a beautiful view of Wilco. Qen: A small asteroid orbiting at big distance from Wilco.

  5. What is this? The first part of my Light Levels (LL/2L) series It's a planet/"star" pack that adds 3 brown dwarfs 7 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: Another L type brown dwarf, a bit cooler than Brün. Its binary with Iyo Kimau; The inner planet of Tersa. It's a little bit bigger than Kerbin but mostly similar despite the fact it runs on carbon instead of oxygen, with oceans of octane. Jyhe: The outermost planet of Tersa. Its a bit darker than Kimau and has a more Mun like surface with interesting cliffs Iyo: A T type brown dwarf binary with Tersa, its colder and gives off the least amount of light. Gren: A cold selena the size of the Mun, its surface is only visible when Tersa an Iyo are both in the sky.

  6. What is this? The final part of my Light Levels (LL/2L) series It adds in two stars with a handful of planets and moons ready to be explored I also added wormholes for the people who don't want to use interstellar drives ^ you can also remove them easily if you don't want to play with them Bodies: Rigos: A hot and bright A type star, its twice the size of Kerbol and has a decently sized system. Ben: The innermost planet of Rigos, no REALLY innermost. It orbits so close that its shape got distorted. Teros: A really hot and bright Eve like planet, its atmosphere is so thick that almost all engines don't work. (Tip, use propellors) Gert: The only moon of Teros. Its surface has a nice cratered brown color. Termina: A type II gas giant with water clouds, making the planet very white and bright. Erto: Erto is a small cratered minmus sized rock with a grey color. Tempora: Probably the best place for an interstellar colony. It's very similar to Kerbin, but a bit more dry with vast deserts. Gosa: A mega Kerbin disguised as a gas giant. Probably the most Aqua colored planet ever to be found. Lilk: A cracked Icy inner moon of Gosa. Mago: Cold, covered with craters, a thin atmosphere and some interesting cryovolcanoes. Pjotter: The outermost planet of the Rigos system. Visit him now to make him less lonely! Rouger: A gigantic star, If it were placed in the Kerbolar system, it would just fit in the orbit of Jool! Col: A hot selena getting roasted by this ginormous star. Ufer: Very similar to Tylo, but a tad bit bigger. Qualia: A boiling wet moon of Ufer covered in endless oceans. Spol: The perfect place to insta freeze your ice creams in the nitrogen lakes. Rol: It has had a recent asteroid bombardment covering it in craters. Wol: A weird icy moon between the size of Minmus and the Mun and a bit bigger than its counterpart of Rol The series -B2L - you are looking at it right now -3LR - The other part of this series which adds 2 brown dwarfs. -3LB - A pack with a binary white dwarf and magnetar neutron star, and a whole lot of planets to explore Kottabos Review Download Github: (secondary) Spacedock: Light Levels Dependencies Kopernicus: (optional) Kopernicus Expansion (Wormholes): (Already combined with download) (optional) EVE: (optional) scatterer: Screenshots Imgur Album: Contact For development updates join my discord server!

  7. OUTERSPACE So what is Outer Space? Outer Space is my first Kopernicus planet pack, aiming to bring more challenge in the game. Nothing much at the moment. !WARNING! This mod is in it's early stages, bugs occur! If you experience weird glitches, PM me and i will try to fix it. When is this updated? Updates will happen, but sometimes things can block development time. I can't really tell. Who is in charge of this? @GenesisPlayz (Myself) The lead developer. I'm doing all the coding and stuff. @ModerndayLink Giving me tips in the beginnng and helping me out when i got confused. @SamBelanger For making the textures, i like them and it saves me alot of time (I'm a terrible artist when it comes to rocky plernerts). CHANGELOG KNOWN ISSUES: TO-DO LIST: DOWNLOAD VIA SPACEDOCK: If you want to take an early peek now:''Outerspace'' KSP Planet Pack Eh, SpaceDock doesn't want to update the mod for some reason. Well, here is an alterative via MEGA:!U3QBlKJT!vAExDvviY35GUhp6XoM61A2fuy30yJapyDujP2XZpz8 SPECIAL THANKS:
  8. Hello everyone! This is the new thread for my *HEAVILY* WIP Kopernicus mod: Way Too Big Solar System Revived This mod, as of this edit, has been COMPLETELY restructured. WTBSSR aims to add in new and unique worlds to challenge your spaceflight technologies, reaching absurd distances from Kerbol. There will not be an absurd amount of objects as originally planned, only a few that are going to be quite far from home. Object Concept List Below:
  9. CORELIAN - 1.0.3 RELEASE A new home for Dres The system: This mod adds a new ringed gas giant, the eponymous Corelian, to the Kerbal system. It sits right where Dres used to, though with less inclination and eccentricity to make it less inconvenient to travel to. The worlds: Corelian: A pink, ringed gas giant a bit smaller than Jool. 4700km in radius with a gravity of 0.84g; 64% the mass of Jool Thale: a dense, lumpy, Pol-sized body with a fast rotation rate and a close, somewhat irregular orbit. Baseline radius of 52km, with some areas nearly 30km above that. Baseline gravity of 0.113g, though near the highest points on the equator the apparent gravity can be as low as 0.012g due to a combination of elevation and spin rate Pras: a rocky, barren world between Duna and Laythe in size. It has a relatively thin but oxygenated atmosphere, at datum it's 26% of Kerbin's sea level pressure and only 173 kelvins (-100 degrees celsius) in temperature. Radius of 391km, gravity of 0.37g Atraxi: a rocky, Mun-sized world with a relatively high density and large canyons on its surface. Radius of 213km, gravity of 0.246g Dres: the same Dres as before, just now orbiting Corelian with its same eccentricity and inclination. Rotated so that Corelian is visible from the Dres Canyon The mod: Requires Kopernicus Continued for 1.9.1. For 1.8.1, instead use the original Kopernicus, and set useAtraxiScatters to false in the settings config. There are no other dependencies apart from those of Kopernicus/Kopernicus Continued, but several mods are supported: Resource configs for Community Resource Pack and Rational Resources Radiation, resource configs, and science reports for Kerbalism Scatterer atmospheres Science reports for SCANSat and DMagic Orbital Science Configs for Planetshine and Distant Object Enhancement Jool re-patch and tested stability for Principia And a reparenting for if you decide to use this with Beyond Home despite the clashing styles The missing ring shadow is a workaround for a lighting bug that most users experience with rings in 1.8.1 and beyond; if you don't have that issue you can re-enable the shadow through the settings config. Similarly, the seam in the rings behind Corelian (only really noticeable without the shadow) is a result of the 2d particle effect in the rings; if you don't want that seam you can disable the particle effect and have only the radial detail. Download: From Spacedock (yes, this mod has actually been around for a while. I just now decided to take a break from developing my next, much bigger mod to give it a touch-up and proper release) From Github Screenshots:
  10. About Real Exoplanets 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. DOWNLOAD ON SPACEDOCK OR ON GITHUB Exoplanet List Below is a list of all of the exoplanet systems added into the game by Real Exoplanets. Screenshots Sources Changelog Credits Squad for KSP of course @Thomas P. for Kopernicus @NathanKell for Real Solar System @Pkmniako for being my original inspiration to begin planet modding @ProtoJeb21 for helping me for ages to recreate real life exoplanets that have accurate characteristics Check out this video of someone traveling to Proxima Centauri in Real Exoplanets: License: All Rights Reserved
  11. This planet pack is an attempt to create a Planet 9 analog for Kerbal Space Program. FAQ: What does this mod contain? This mod contains one Gas Giant, 3 moons, and one moonlet. How Do I install it? 1. Make sure you've downloaded all this mod's dependencies, (Below) and put them into GameData. 2. Download the .zip file from SpaceDock 3. Drop the folder Planetxpack, NOT HytharaPlanetPack v0.0 into GameData. The correct installation should be: Kerbal Space Program/GameData/PlanetXpack 4. ?????? 5. PROFIT! What does this mod Currently have? The 5 worlds, custom textures for each of them, and biomes for almost all of them. What do you plan on adding next? Science Definitions, better atmosphere's for Hythara, better textures, and more! What Version does this support? 1.8.1. Dependencies: Kopernicus, MIT by Thomas P. ModuleFlightIntegrator, MIT by Sarbian. ModuleManager, CC-SA by ialdaboth, currently maintained by sarbian and Blowfish. Promo Pictures! Hythara, the central gas giant of the system. It has faint rings and is around a third of the size of Jool Riaz, the closest moon to Hythara, the black sooty ring is from ring debri settling onto it's equator. Niran, a once habitable world similar to Laythe now completely frozen over. Gaul, the largest moon in the system, around a quarter of Hythara's size. It has one moonlet, Nemesis. Nemesis, the brownish-reddish moon orbiting Gaul, it's just larger than Gilly. The view from Riaz's Soot biome, Lowell is visible in the background. Niran's islands from the surface. Nemesis from the surface, Lowell is visible in the background. You can view the whole gallery here: KNOWN ISSUES Thanks to Kottabos Games for the showcase of my Mod! DOWNLOAD (SpaceDock) License:
  12. I've always wanted another gas giant for the Kerbin System, and after playing with OPM a lot, I decided to try it myself. After all, it's not rocket science, it's astronomy! I mainly made this because, recently, after I started getting interested into modding, I decided to make a planet pack, or at least try to. So, I'll be documenting my efforts here. Disclaimer: Valor is currently very WIP. It's not finished, and there will obviously be problems. Here's the current plan for the system (Ones with check marks are in-game already): √ Valor - Blue Gas Giant Blue Has Oxygenated Atmosphere Milo Orbits extremely close to Valor Should have a great view Mun-like √ Theta - Desert Moon High Ore Concentration Oxygenated Atmosphere Bonx - Rocky Moon Very High Ore Concentration Signature Black Stripes on it's surface (May or may not be related to Ore Concentration ) Binx - Tiny Moon in a near-polar orbit Gilly-like moon May be a captured asteroid/comet, we'll see Kipper Huge, reddish moon (bigger than Tylo!) 5 gees of gravity at sea level More ore concentration than Bonx! Has a set of rings, formed when it's own gravity ripped it's moonlet apart Orton An ocean moon that got frozen over Got ejected out of its orbit by a catastrophic event, once orbited between Kerbin and Eve Very very thin remnants of it's original atmosphere still exist To-Do List: Finish adding all the moons Add biomes Add Terrain Scatter Add EVE support Add Scatterer support Add PlanetShine support Add Kopernicus Expansion Footprints support Changelog: v0.2 - Added Theta - Tilted Valor's rings by 10 degrees - Changed the internal folder structure slightly v0.1 - Initial release, added Valor. No Pics, No Clicks? Here ya go! Download: Spacedock Dependencies: Kopernicus Continued License: Valor is licensed under GPLv3 Installation Instructions: Just drag the contents of the GameData folder into your GameData folder. Q&A: Q: Is Valor compatible with OPM? A: No, as Valor's orbit is very similar to Sarnus's. However, if you get more hands-on, Valor makes a pretty good Planet 9 Analog Q: Is Valor compatible with MPE? A: Yes! Minor Planet Expansion is compatible and recommended! Q: Is Valor compatible with (Insert Planet Pack Here that's not listed above) A: I don't know. Test it out yourself! Q: I can't find this mod on CKAN! A: Valor is listed on CKAN as Valor Planet Pack. If you can't find it, you can always download from the spacedock link above. Q: How can I help? A: Anything is appreciated! Q: Can we stop with the questions now? A: Um.... sure, I guess. Any comments, screenshots, contributions, and criticism is always accepted and appreciated! If you think something should be different, please tell me!
  13. EXTRASOLAR License: Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike DESCRIPTION: The Extrasolar mod adds the red dwarf star "Valentine" in orbit around Kerbol. 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. DO NOT INSTALL THIS FROM CKAN! LIST OF CELESTIAL BODIES: SCREENSHOTS: DOWNLOAD ON SPACEDOCK CHANGE LOG:
  14. THE REACH: INTERSTELLAR Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International License The Reach Interstellar is an interstellar based planet pack for more advanced players. The system sits at about two kerbal light years distance. The mod is meant to be compatible with several system replacer mods, and with any mod in the Interstellar Consortium. The system in question features 16 landable objects, and a red dwarf binary in the centre. Original mod: Screenshots (By RJVB09): Planet List: Dowload on spacedock: Reach: Interstellar Credits: @RJVB09 for converting the textures to a less performance-heavy format, making the aurorae @Thomas P. for maintaining Kopernicus up to the update of this mod, no planets without him
  15. 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.

  16. This mod adds the kerbalized version of the Gargantua System from movie Interstellar to your game! The main feature of the mod is the proper black hole/pulsar effects providen by a separate from Kopernicus plugin. So, let's take a look at the system! Kargantua - a supermassive black hole at 1573560320km distance from Kerbol. Gravity - 100g Radius - 80 000km Limmer - a large tidally locked Laythe-like planet. The 90% of the surface on this planet is covered with vast ocean, only The Great Volcano is exposed. Gravity - 1.4g Radius - 480km Namm - an icy planet without oxygen atmosphere but surprisingly covered with pine trees... Gravity - 0.62g Radius - 339km Pantagrool - a rapidly spinning pulsar Radius - 30km Gravity - 35.8g Admun - a desert planet with oxygen atmosphere Radius - 280km Gravity - 0.125g Jopa - a small asteroid that sometimes passes very close to Kargantua Radius - 5km Gravity - 0.0001341g Included mods: -Kopernicus -Scatterer -EVE DOWNLOAD: The mod: System [WIP] The volumetric disk patch: The license is CC BY-NC-ND 3.0 The DiskController plugin source: If you like my mods then you can leave a small donation, it really helps me out!

  17. I'm currently working a new planet mod that's just mostly me messing around before i do bigger stuff. It's very early in development and i'm fairly new to kopernicus so this might take a while. in the meantime while i'm developing this i can already show two planets that atleast function. Since these are the two first planets i show i will tell you about them. Drift is a tidally locked world that's massive in scale. It has a close ring and will have some moons in the future but for now you have a dry world and whatever mysteries you can find on it, but good luck getting back. Lomn is your average blue gas giant. A bit smaller than Jool but with a neat ring. Like Drift it will also have some moons in the future but for now it's just the gas giant all alone. there are more planets / moons but i'm still working on them. I'm still expiriencing some difficulties with drift as the scaledspace and the actual planet don't always match but i'm working on it. This is also the first post i ever made so hi, i guess. Since this is me messing around / practicing any suggestion are welcome
  18. So... Almost two years ago @Artyomka15 created a wonderful mod. Kolyphemus System is a analogue of the Polyphemus System from movie Avatar. So, it's time to back a legend*! *ORIGINAL THREAD: THE KOLYPHEMUS SYSTEM Mod adds the kerbalized version of Polyphemus and its moons from the movie Avatar Kolyphemus - a blue gas giant with oxygen atmosphere that orbits between Kerbin and Eve (what??) Kalatea - that weird moon is often called "The Space Cheese" due to it's strange shape... Moei - do you love hot chics? I wish you were here Pandoor - a habitable planet with giant trees, which can be a reason for your lags... Changelog MORE SCREENSHOTS DOWNLOAD FROM SPACEDOCK LICENCE: CC-BY-NC-SA

  21. Note: If you had the original InterKalactic mod, this is separate and NOT compatible. This is a separate planet pack entirely, the original has been discontinued. For now, at least. InterKalactic 2 is a remake of InterKalactic; many of the bodies from the original pack are used, but now, there's some story and uniqueness behind InterKalactic 2. IK2 is based off of the premise that Kerbol is expanding into a red giant, and expanding your sights to the stars and planets beyond. I'm aware that in real life these events would take billions of years, but for the sake of this planet pack, we're pretending that these events all happen within a much shorter time frame. InterKalactic 2 has two 'dependencies': Kopernicus and Kerbol++. Kopernicus allows for planets to be modified in KSP, and Kerbol++ is my other planet mod which implements several semi-realism and challenge-based tweaks to planets that are inherited by this pack. Kerbol++ will modify the bodies of every planet except for Kerbol, Ike, Gilly and Eve accordingly. If you want to support this mod or my other projects, you can donate at the following bitcoin address: 15nhma9mEYqhBE5hyCHa4bGUyrAfnaUrxd or PayPal: You are also welcome to provide your own planet textures if you would like. The bodies in this modpack are currently mostly divided into 2 distinct regions: Kerbol and the InterKalactic Plain, as I have unofficially dubbed it. Kerbol consists of the Kerbol System, with only minor changes by InterKalactic, including an analogy for Planet 9. The InterKalactic Plain currently only consists of one incomplete star system: Sol. It also includes the black hole known as Hawking's Singularity. In between the IKP and Kerbol is another WIP star system, Aartee. While the rest of the Kerbol System remains fairly accessible, the IKP is a tremendously far distance away, and you'll need to be going very fast to reach it. However, once you do, the rest of the InterKalactic star systems become much more within reach, as they will all be much closer to eachother from this point onwards. While IK2 is optimized for KSP 1.3.1, I don't expect it to have any problems running on more recent versions of KSP. Latest Update (0.2): Multiplied Gilly's surface gravity by 10, to account for it's reduced SOI and to make landing a bit less of a headache (now it's 0.05g) Added a black hole named Hawking's Singularity to the InterKalactic Plain, in remembrance of Stephen Hawking. Known Issues: None currently Download on SpaceDock: 2 Download K++ on SpaceDock: or visit its main thread: You can view the thread of the original InterKalactic here (note that it is not compatible with IK2 or K++): SCREENSHOTS: Sunset on Kerbin Gas planet size comparison; The big one is Korbur (Kerbal's name for Jupiter), the purple one is Korvin, and the green one is Jool Moho on the horizon All 3 of the currently implemented stars from a distance (from right to left: Sol, Kerbol, Aartee) Below, you will find a summary of how the planets have changed. (Changes from Kerbol++ are listed too) Kerbol (The Sun) Kerbol is now many times larger and brighter than before. In addition, it has acquired a reddish hue. Moho Moho is slowly being pulled into the Sun, and as such, it is tidally locked and orbits extremely quickly around the Sun. Moho now possesses Gilly as its moon. If you choose to visit this duo, don't forget radiators. Gilly After being flung through the Kerbol system, Gilly has found home orbiting close Moho. Eve Eve's orbit has been notably elongated. While still not too far from Kerbin, bring some extra fuel if you're going to Eve. Currently, Eve is technically moonless. VoronoiCraters A series of 4 temporary moons orbiting Eve. These are just temporary for testing purposes and will be removed later, so please don't settle them. Kerbin Kerbin has been more or less spared by Kerbol. While Kerbin has been saved from the worst of it, the planet still may experience occasional temperature swings as a result of its increasingly eccentric orbit which wreak havoc on the environment. Kerbin's orbit has slowly been spiraling out, and so it's relatively farther from Kerbol than it would have been otherwise. Mun The Mun orbits extra far from Kerbin now. Minmus The orbit of Minmus is now highly irregular, taking it both closer and farther from Kerbin than previously. Duna Duna has been pushed outwards from the Sun like Kerbin. The Dunian system remains mostly unaffected by the expanding sun otherwise, but has gained a brand new moon, mysteriously. Oogaloo This funnily named moon orbits in between Duna and Ike. It is rather small, just slightly bigger than Gilly. Ike Ike remains unchanged in this pack. Dres Dres has been pushed out a bit as well, but otherwise remains unchanged Jool Vall is now Jool's closest moon, followed by the other bodies in their previous orders. Jool also has a nice set of rings and is much, much bigger. Vall The shephard moon of Jool's rings. Laythe The second closest moon to Jool. Volcanically hyperactive and covered mostly with an ocean. Pol Pol is a distant, irregular moon of Jool. Bop Bop is also a distant, irregular moon of Jool. Eeloo Eeloo remains unchanged by this pack, besides for orbiting much farther from Kerbol. Korvin The elusive, recently discovered 'Planet 9'. Reaching this one is tricky as it has a fairly elliptical and distant orbit. It was discovered after Kerbal scientists studied anomalies found in the orbits of Eeloo and various asteroids. Korvin's two moons are Oceania and Kyel. Oceania This water world has no surface at all, and is heated up by its close proximity orbiting Korvin. Oceania has a fairly thick atmosphere notably similar to that of Kerbin. Kyel A relatively flat and cratered desert orbiting Korvin. Would be great for base building. Kyel has a thin, grey atmosphere. Aartee A high energy star distant from everything else. This is what lies between Kerbol and the InterKalactic Plain. Currently does not host any planets, but is great for solar energy. Sol A welcoming, yellow star, currently the only star in the InterKalactic Plain. Myecl A grey chunk of rock orbiting closest to Sol. Hosts no moons and has little value in colonization, besides for a relative abundance of ore. Alternis A red, ringed desert world orbiting Sol. Currently hosts no moons. A weak potential biological signature has been detected here. Korbur A massive gas giant orbiting farthest from Sol. Hosts just 4 known moons. Ie Korbur's nearest moon. It is very yellow and volcanically active. Contrary to popular belief, it is NOT made out of ice cream. Cryo Cryo consists of a large ocean, but locked under a massive global sheet of ice that is kilometers thick. Klaspen The third moon of Korbur. Heavily cratered. Kallisto Sometimes confused with Klaspen, Kallisto is also dark colored and heavily cratered Hawking's Singularity A black hole in remembrance of Stephen Hawking. Currently has no bodies orbiting it.

  23. Hello All!!! I've been working on this mod on and off for about two months now, and I finally got myself to finish it. Dwarf Planets Plus is a mod that (absolutely definitely was not meant to shut up the vesta-lovers and) adds in five extra dwarf planets to the solar system! If you've ever felt that Eeloo and Dres didn't represent Centaur, KBO, and Asteroid Belt objects well, this mod is for you. DPP was meant to be a supplemental mod, meaning that it is designed to work with most planet packs created by the community (including my own mods). Note that the mod currently does not work if you are also using Kerbal Star Systems. If you have any suggestions for future updates, leave them here. Here are some shots of the five objects currently in the mod (more will be inserted in future updates). Here is the link to download: Features for the next update: 1: Dwarf Moons (asteroid like moons) 2: Eris analog with 3: Improved Biome Maps 4: Compatibility improvements (to make the mod playable with GPP and KSS, for example) 5: Research Bodies support (maybe) eve support will come after update 2. don't ask for it.
  24. This really needs a better name. This mod is still a work in progress, this version is being released mainly for feedback. Anyway, this is a simple exoplanet mod, working in much the same way as Extrasolar, with a star orbiting Kerbol at great distance, making for reasonable computer resource usage, and a balanced and believable (to kerbal scale at least) distance. As a planet pack, this requires Kopernicus to work. Bodies: There are some known issues, such as the fact that terrain looks wrong from orbit. This is because I didn't add proper texturing for the scaled version, still working on that. Update listing Plans: More planets Make terrain look nicer Fix bugs Science messages OTHER MOD NOTES: Required: Kopernicus Recommended: Better Time Warp Continued KSP Interstellar Extender or another high-tech rocket mod.

  25. Dres Moons Mod (1.8.1) What Does this Mod Add? The Dres Moons Mod adds two moons to Dres. Pacito: A small, reddish brown moon that orbits near Dres. It is thought to contain a small amount of iron. Ceric: A small, bluish snowball with a bright orange crater and a very faint ring. Quite the curious world indeed, especially since it (like Eeloo) has no surface scatter. Pictures Download Dependencies: Kopernicus Dres Moons Mod?ga=+3102+'kerbal+space+program'> All Rights Reserved
