  1. REAL EXOPLANETS License: Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike DESCRIPTION: Real Exoplanets (REX) is planet pack that adds several confirmed exoplanets into KSP. As the name implies, all of these exoplanets are real, and all of the planetary systems are located exactly where they are in real life. All of the planets have accurate characteristics and the visual appearance of all exoplanets are based off of our current understanding of planetary science (as well as some artistic license when necessary ). Real Exoplanets is compatible with both Real Solar System and the stock, default solar system. With RSS, REX is properly scaled by a factor of 10. REX CELESTIAL CATALOG: CREDITS: Squad for KSP of course @Thomas P. for Kopernicus @NathanKell for Real Solar System @Pkmniako for getting DOE to work for far away stars and planets @ProtoJeb21 for helping me for ages to recreate real life exoplanets that have accurate characteristics SOURCES: DOWNLOAD ON SPACEDOCK
  2. What is this? The first part of my Low Light Levels (LLL/3L) series It's a planet/"star" pack that adds 2 brown dwarfs 6 planets and 3 moons. Bodies: -Brün: A bright brown dwarf that would almost have been a red dwarf, but it wasn't that lucky and still fell into the L class -Xing: The first planet of Brün, a cold non-habitable tidal locked water world. -Yurff: The second planet of Brün, a Mun sized planet with some special rings and a hilly but cratered surface. -Bäz: The third planet of Brün, way farther out there is Bäz. a gas giant half the size and mass of Jool with magnificent rings. -Colgo: The icy inner moon of Bäz. Almost similar to Eeloo -Æger: The outermost moon of Bäz, it shares similar characteristics with Duna, and it has an extraordinary name. -Ømis: The fourth and outermost planet of Brün, Its an icy covered with cracks super Kerbin with a thin atomosphere. Its radius is 1,5 times greater than Kerbin -Ve: A small Minmus sized moon orbiting around Ømis with weird surface features -Tersa: The second Brown dwarf of this pack. It is a cool T type brown dwarf. -Gren: The innermost planet of Tersa. A Mun like planet covered in darkness with not much to see on its surface. -Jyhe: The outermost planet of Tersa. It shares the same characteristics with Gren and is even darker. The series -3LR - you are looking at it right now -3LB - A pack with a binary white dwarf and magnetar neutron star, and a whole lot of planets to explore Dev thread(contains spoilers): Download Spacedock: Light Levels Red Dependencies Kopernicus: (optional) Kopernicus Expansion (footprints): (optional) EVE: (optional) scatterer: Trailer/ Kottabos Review Screenshots License
  3. 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.

@Galileo Kerbal Star Systems by @StarCrusher96 Kolyphemus and Krgantua System by @Artyomka15 The Milky Way Skybox used in the screenshots is created by @Poodmund The scatterer sunflares used are from SunflaresOfMaar created by @JadeOfMaar Some EVE textures are from Astronomer's Visual Pack created by @themaster401 The bundled antenna parts are created by @zzz and @Eleusis La Arwall Thread of the month 2018-06 woohoo! The names of celestials and biomes are most certainly not blatant references to TV/cartoon/anime/games/people/other mods and if you think they are, you are just imagining things
  4. Skaian System Planet Pack First, I want to thank @The White Guardian for letting me use his mods to learn and @Thomas P. for the Kopernicus Examples, and also Andrew Hussie to make the webcomic this mod is inspired on! This is my first planet pack so there might be some issues with the developement and I might need some help if someone is kind enough to comment (With all the credit). So, this mod is based on the different planets of the webcomic Homestuck by Andrew Hussie, with Skaia being the center of the mod. Spoiler alert for those who are interested in Homestuck. So, let's meet the planets shall we? (Btw I have no idea how to do the posts) First: Skaia! This blue, gassy marble somewhere in the orbit of Duna has the characteristic of being exactly like Kerbin at some point, being a semihabitable planet with no soil. This planet baffles Kerbals by its blueness, and the mysterious influence the planet has on it's moons, changing lumps of rocks into good ol' habitable planets. Next: Typheus, also known as the Land of Wind And Shade! This even bluer marble is one of the satellites of Skaia, scoured mostly flat by past storms, thought to have been provoked by the influence of the moon's primary. It's thought that before these winds cleaned the planet, this moon used to be rainy and cloudy, and maybe it had life, evidenced by the lakes of pure oil dotting the surface of the planet; and it has old ruins of a sewage system, evidencing sapient beings. It's the most coveted planet of the Kerbol system, specially by the United States of Kamerica. So, this it's waht I have managed to make! Future features I want to include (Green mostly done, orange being worked on, red still not made, blue maybe not included) Lands of Heat and Clockwork, of Light and Rain, and Frost and Frogs. Prospit and Derse The Nobles and Trolls planets. So, this is my planet pack! I hope you like it and I would be so grateful if someone reports any bugs (I'ts my first planet pack so it's likely there are) or could help me out writing the code! -Download the mod: -Dropbox Thanks for reading! :o)
  5. 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:
  6. Salus: A J1407b Analogue [1.7.3] What does this mod add? Salus: A large gas giant out past Jool with the largest rings Kerbals have ever seen. It is thought that a close encounter with a rogue planet gave its orbit its inclination, as well as its current ring system. Visit soon, they're not expected to last for much longer. They've already begun collapsing into moons. Dauble: An icy world harboring a subsurface ocean, with plumes spraying out world-wide. Dauble is nested inside Salus's rings, providing quite the skyline. Dulus: A small moon orbiting rather close to Dauble. This flattened moon is collecting material from Salus's rings across its equator forming a massive equatorial ridge. Don't slip! Duran: A captured asteroid that orbits far from Salus, well past its rings. It's inclined orbit gives the best possible view of Salus. Be sure to bring your camera!

  8. 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
  9. Hello, it's Noah the Smol! I'm working on a planet pack I call 'NOPE', or Noah's Planet Expansion. It will include multiple planets, moons and objects to explore! The amount of objects will NOT be as insane as some of my other projects, but there will be a good number(5-6 large planets, and lots of smaller objects). The objects will be in red if they are currently not even started or can't be in the game, orange if they've been barely started, yellow for ~1/2 done and green for done with lastly blue for released or soon to be released. Keep posted for more! Thanks! -NTS

  13. Development Thread for Ramesses System Overhaul (RSO) What is RSO? As the name suggests, the mod will replace all of the planets and add a bit more. RSO will be situated around a K-type star which is orbited by 14 planets (3 minor), with an early L-type orbited by 5 planets. All of which are listed below The Planets Ra System Seker System Pics Click for Imgur album Keep in mind that this mod is still a work in progress and will not be uploaded until I feel like it's ready for release.
  14. The Kronkus system - Kopernicus Planet Pack by MrChumley This mod adds a ringed gas giant with 4 moons. It is ready for career mode with full integration into the stock game. Completely new biomes with custom science, and new secrets to discover. Textures have been optimized for quick loading, and low memory use. Includes: 1 GAS GIANT Kronkus: Huge purple ringed gas giant orbiting between Dres and Jool 4 MOONS Eahpeh: The icy shepherd moon that weaves its way through the rings of Kronkus. Kersex: It's the "Almost Kerbin" home away from home. A whole new frontier with towering mountains, desolate deserts, and fjords that stretch as far as the eye can see. Meelo: Next, is Meelo. The middle moon. Orbits outside Kersex. It's monotone colors are home to the most "sensible" moon in the Kronkus system. Scool: The outermost, tidally-locked, dusty snowball moon of the Kronkian system. Known issues: Kerbin space center "looks weird": Using Kerbin template causes the sky to be incorrect in the space center view. It is, however, correct in the flight view and the flight map view. Kersex has extra ground station(s): The extra ground station is hard coded into the Kerbin template (Which Kersex relies on) and cannot be removed (as far as I know). After extensive testing, I have determined that the extra base has minimal impact on gameplay. During career mode the station cannot be upgraded so its range is extremely limited. Enabling extra ground stations is not recommended.

  17. 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!

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

  19. The Plod System [1.7.3] I would highly recommend this review of the mod by KottabosGames. If you're reading this KottabosGames thanks again! What does this mod add? The Plod System adds a binary Sedna analogue dwarf planet to the far solar system. Plod: An icy, green dwarf planet with massive craters and looming mountains. Its orbit is giant and elliptical. Many blame Jool... or could it have been another hidden planet? Oob: Plod's binary companion, orbiting so close to Plod that orbiting in low-Plod-orbit is a necessity. Giant ice spikes jut into the world's horizon, segmenting the world's smoother, purpler terrain. Ninkle: A dark bluish-purple world that orbits Plod with minimal gravity. Its lowlands contrast nicely with exposed green under-ice, hinting at its past and formation. Tebos: A smooth, small world with a bright lump on one side. It is navy blue in appearance, with exposed yellow-brown under-ice and a tall, white mound on the side of the world, which the moon's tiny gravity could not conform. Lia: The oddball. This moon is though to have had severe out gassing and plumage in its early years. The surface is pink, and covered almost everywhere with sharp, spikey terrain. Fear not however, the moon's minuscule gravity makes the spikes much less dangerous than they could have been.

  20. Welcome to the Golder System, a extremely distant extrasolar system. This planet pack adds 4 ringed planets, and 4 interesting moons. Introducing the system's bodies (minor spoilers): Download Required mods: Kopernicus (most recent version) ModuleManager and ModularFlightIntegrator Recommended mods: BetterTimeWarp - Being a very distant solar system, without this mod, a mission to Golder may take forever! Any warp drive mod - to speed up the journey Enjoy the planet pack! (Future plans coming soon) I'm also open for planet/moon suggestions, so feel free to suggest planets to me!
  21. Hello! This is Tekcate, a small, simple planet pack that adds three new bodies to the Kerbol System. Keep in mind that this is the first mod I have ever created, so it does have flaws. Kopernicus is necessary for this mod to function. This mod also features full Science Definitions. I would greatly appreciate hearing your feedback! Thanks to KottabosGames for the review. New Worlds Tekcate- An oversized asteroid (or undersized dwarf planet?) orbiting Kerbol between Kerbin and Duna on a moderately eccentric, slightly inclined orbit. It is the size of Minmus at 60 kilometers in radius, and is a dark gray ball of rock and ice. Tekili- Tekcate's primary natural satellite, orbiting quite to its parent. It is a tiny, smooth, and pink moon even smaller than Gilly. Tekili is roughly an eighth the size of Tekcate at 7 kilometers in radius. Tekova- The second, smaller moon of Tekcate, only half the size of Tekili. It orbits much further from its parent on an inclined, elliptical than Tekili and can be called a miniature version of Minmus. Installation Instructions Simply extract the entirely of the .zip file, and insert the "Tekit" folder into KSP's GameData folder. Changelog Thanks to Gameslinx for helping me with terrain scatter.

  22. NOTE: THIS PACK IS HEAVILY W.I.P. AND NEEDS YOUR HELP! The idea of Kerbol Genesis is a alteration of the stock system along with adding new stars, planets and moons that can be customized like a set of Lego bricks to make your own Galactic Neighborhood. @TheJangleMan has given me permission to use K.G.R. assets, so as such, I will use ALL of the assets, essentially creating K.G.R. Volume 2. Here is the current list of bodies. All bodies have names and descriptions, though these are subject to change. NOTE - When it comes to K.G.R. planets, I don't exactly know the orbits of the bodies, so bare with me if they aren't correct! Kerbol (Sun, New Texture and Corona) Eternium - Eternium is anything but eternal, as this hot Jool is literally evaporationg away due to Kerbol's Solar wind. Supprisingly, there is a surface of Black Diamond with lakes of liquid hydrogen here - that is, if you can make it to the surface. Moho (Updated Textures and HeightMap) - Moho is a small rock slightly larger than our Mun that is in a binary orbit with Grorth. It is hot here and, frankly, quite uninteresting. SilicaMoon1 "Grorth" (In Binary orbit with Moho) - Grorth is cooler than Moho, but that doesn't mean its not hot here. Still as uninteresting as its brother, Moho. Asteroid1 "Asluaphus" (Orbiting LaGrange Point) - Asluaphus is like the other bodies in the Moho System - BORING. Eve (New Maps and Description) - An Kerbin-like planet with an atmosphere that is not breathable to Kerbals due to low oxygen levels and unusually large amounts of argon. A long mountain range snakes its way around the planet, forming the backbone of several continents. There are Lakes of what is presumed to be Rocket Fuel here. OceaniaMoon1 "Shamun" (%80 Water with craters, similar to Kerbol Star System's Laythe) - A small Kerbin-like satellite with a rich oxygen atmosphere. The moon is dotted with countless tiny islands made from impact craters. The plant-like organisms on Shamun are almost exclusively types of grass. They can reach incredible heights due to the strength of some species, while others would be barely noticeable in a microscope, if not for their spectacular colors. Shrubs, bushes and flowers are also fairly prominent, but fungi and trees are nearly non-existent. While their colors, shapes and in some cases their scents may be wonderful, none of these organisms have developed beyond a more basic form. Gilly (New Maps and description) - Gilly is a tiny asteroid orbiting Eve. Gilly has the smallest gravity of any body in the entire Kerbol System. SuperOceaniaPlanet1 "Wioter" (%100 water) - Wioter has no landmasses to speak of, just barren, empty and cruel oceans. This planet isn't the most ideal place for life, but there are plenty of examples similar to this planet which do sustain life. Only time will tell if Wioter is a future home to new lifeforms. DesertMoon1 "Skruwioter" (Similar to Tatooine from Star Wars: Episode 4) - When scientists realized that a proper landing in Water with a traditional lander wasn't possible, an intern shouted, "Screw Water!" A writer misinterpreted the exclamation as the name of Water yet in-named moon and wrote it down. It has stuck ever since. Sustaining life on its own isn't something this moon will be capable of in the near future, but the conditions are good enough to allow terra forming and the planet is rich in resources, which could make it perfect for a mining colony. Kerbin (Same as Stock, No Changes Here) SpacePotato1 "Tromia E3LF" (Captured Asteroid that threatened Kerbin, but now resides at approx. 3-5 million meters above sea level) - Tromia E3LF made everyone scream a couple years back when it came barreling towards Kerbin. Now it resides in orbit, serving as a potential refueling base for KSC's Missions in the Kerbol System and Beyond. Mun (New Text. and Height.) - The Mun has always been a presence both in Kerbin's sky and Kerbal's minds. However, when Kerbonauts arrived here, their dreams of a world filled with canals of cookies and cream ice cream were swiftly crushed. Bummer Minmus (New Text. and Height.) - Minmus is also called, "That green thing you can see if you squint really hard." Minmus is mint colored, but doesn't taste like Mint ice cream at all. TidallyLockedTerra1 "Huobos" (Rotation slowed by 2 moons, Hurricane at equator with temperate twilight zones and frozen night side) - Huobos's two moons slow down it's rotation so much that although it is millions of miles away from Kerbol, it is essentially tidally locked. One large continent stretches from the north pole to the south pole. Ecosystems range from tropical rain forest to arid grassland and frozen tundra. A large Hurricane is ever-present on it's Kerbol-Facing Side. SilicaMoon2 "Frayalea" (Like Kerbins Mun, 180 degrees away in rotation from SilicaMoon3) - A lifeless rock with no atmosphere, about the size of Kerbin's mun. A few uranium deposits are the only sites of interest here, and there are only a dozen or so of them. SilicaMoon3 "Strov" (Like Kerbins Mun, 180 degrees away in rotation from SilicaMoon2) - Similar to Frayalea, Strov is fairly uninteresting. Unfortunately, it doesn't even have deposits of Uranium to support interest here. Katney ([AKA Duna] Suffered Comet impact, now more temperate and more Kerbin-esque) - Katney, formerly known as Duna, recently suffered an impact from a comet, and has been transformed by it. What used to be a cold red planet is, well, slightly less so. Katney, named after Mark Katney (a famous Kerbonaut who survived being stranded on Duna for over a year), has a moderately-thick atmosphere with oxygen and water present at the surface due to a comfortable temperature of 70 degrees Fahrenheit. While Katney currently holds no lifeforms, it may very well do so in the future. The conditions are near perfect, all it takes now is the right trigger and plenty of time. Perhaps an advanced species could help set things in motion with a failed lander with microbes accidentally spared from cleaning on board. Ike (New Texture and heightmap) - Ike is a cold satellite of Katney that has no satellite's on or near it. Until you go there (wink-wink)! SpacePotato2 "Brora 237" (Like Phobos) - Brora 237 is an uninteresting space potato orbiting Katney. SpacePotato3 "Brora 238" (Like Demos) - Brora 238is an uninteresting space potato orbiting Katney. Dres (More Interesting with new maps) - Dres is a dwarf planet orbiting in Kerbol's Asteroid belt. There is no atmosphere here, but large canyons dot the surface. Resources are pretty much the only thing Dres is known and good for. Comet1 "Gleshan 893" (Captured Icy Comet) - This blue comet is forever suspended over Dres. It saddens scientists that more people Know about Gleshan than Dres. Jool (Now a Green Dwarf Star due to an event similar to that which occur in 2010: Odyssey 2) - Jool used to be a Gas Giant until the Krakening. Millions of Monoliths swarmed Jools Atmosphere, increasing its denity enough until it began Nuclear Fusion. Oddly enough, Jool has retained its green color, and as such is the only known Green Star in existence. Asteroid2 "Lah" (Large Captured Asteroid) - Lah is a tiny metallic rock orbiting in what used to be Jool's Asteroid belt. It is now the only asteroid left from before the Krakening. Pol (Now more like Io, with volcanoes lava) - Pol used to be a calm moon until Jool began Nuclear Fusion. Pol heated up from the combination of Tidal forces and Jool's light. Pol is heavily volcanic, so although beautiful as this moon may be, life will of course never be possible here. But in terms of research, this moon has plenty of secrets and answers ready to be discovered. If nothing else, Pol at least makes for a gorgeous sight in the night skies of the planets around it. Laythe (Less Water, More Land, Higher temp) - A oceanic moon with an oxygen-rich atmosphere, Laythe has warmed and dried up quite a bit. A layer of single-celled photosynthetic organisms covers the entire surface of the planet, giving it a uniform appearance and a vivid green color. These unicellular plants are so successful that the evolutionary process has largely stalled, however several more complex species of photosynthetic plant have also developed. Tylo (Now more like 2nd Eve with thick atmo. AND high G-force ASL) - Tylo is every Kerbonaut's Nightmare, and Jedidiah's Dream Moon. While life will never be possible on Tylo, it does offer a unique sight in the night sky of the rest of Jool's nearby moons. Its colors and violent weather here occasionally makes the night quite magical on those planets, especially those with an atmosphere. TerraMoon2 "Flov" (Like Kerbin but colder and more land) - Flov is essentially a smaller Kerbin. It has the same land to water ratio, but has no life present at the surface. DesertSub-Moon1 "Meylia" (Like Duna but brown, more atmo and water) - Meylia has huge sandstorms that cover its surface. Although extremely violent, this sub-moon holds many resources which could be of the utmost importance to Kerbalkind. With the right technology, battling the elements on Meylia shouldn't be too much of a challenge. Vall (Now like a melted Europa but with land and red plant life) - A small Kerbin-like moon with an oxygen-rich atmosphere. The entire planet is covered by one enormous ocean. There are only a few small islands where forests of red fungus-like organisms grow. SilicaSub-Moon1 "Crufater" (Like Kerbin's Mun but much smaller and Minmus gravity ASL) - A small lifeless rock with an extremely thin nitrogen atmosphere. Its surface is pitted with large impact craters. No indigenous lifeforms exist here, and the only interest in Crufater is its Metalic Crust. SilicaMoon5 "Rarus" (Like Smaller Tylo) - This Silicate based moon is cratered on all sides. It's obvious life on Rarus is impossible, but this moon does hold the key to whether or not life will exist on the other Joolian moons around it. Rarus shields some of the other moons from an asteroid field which Jool comes into contact with every few decades. When this happens, small pieces are scattered through the Jool system, but the vast majority are caught by Rarus. Those pieces that do get scattered are usually not big enough to destroy the other moons, while at the same time potentially holding the right materials or even lifeforms to begin the process of life on those other Joolian moons IceGiant1 "Cryria" (Purple and Yellow Uranus with 4 separate rings) - Cryria is a Highly Tilted Ice Giant orbiting past Jool. A large storm resides at the equator here, and a septagon cloud formation present at both the north and south poles. SpacePotato4 "Trion" (Ring Herder) - Trion is a small red space potato that herds Cryria's 1st and 2nd rings. FormingTerra/SilicaMoon1 "Protonus" (Hot planet with primordial soup being fromed from 2nd and 3rd Rings No life yet, but the materials are there.) - Protonus is a warm moon forming in-between Cryria's second and third rings. It is kept relatively warm by its atmosphere, which is mostly composed of carbon dioxide, and bombardment from the rings above. This is a damp, boggy world, prone to excessive rain and seasonal flooding. A relatively flat surface prevents water from pooling into large oceans and instead keeps the water table high. There are a number of small seas however, which are fed by wide, shallow rivers - a product of the planet's active weather system. It is possible that these sea's have a mixture of Primordial compounds in them, but no scientist knows for sure. Space Potato5 "Kepard" (Ring Herder) - Kepard is a yellow space potato herding Cryria's 3rd and 4th rings. IceDesertMoon1 "Drars" (Colder than Duna, Blue sand) - A cold, blue desert moon with a nitrogen atmosphere. While oxygen levels are too low for Kerbal respiration, the availability of precious metals at or near the surface makes it an ideal candidate for mining operations. Comet2 "Kaprilles 923" (Captured Icy Comet that could deliver IceDesertMoon1 Water) - This small white comet is mostly flat and is made of about 90% water. It is slowly falling back down to Drars's surface. SilicaMoon6 "Fregatis" (Like Ike/Dres) - Fregatis has what KSC scientists call, "Dresitis" - the sickness of being a boring body surrounded by interesting bodies. IceGiant2 "Brao" (Like Saturn but Blue and Orange [I'm an Auburn fan, War Eagle!], and 2 rings) - Brao may look calm due to it's colors, but it is anything but. Brao has the most ferocious winds in the entire Kerbol System, and has Hurricanes larger than Kerbin, Eve, and Katney combined. FormingSilicaMoon2 "Kunia"(Like Stock Pol, but HOT) - Kunia is a forming volcanic world. Obviously this moon cannot sustain life, as the conditions here are far too violent and change too often. Perhaps when things have calmed down in a few million years life will begin to appear, but right now we can only study Kunia for more information about how moons-and planets-are formed. Methania/SulphuriaMoon1 "Eynope" (Like Titan, but Blue surface and Purple Atmosphere) - This odd Moon was all a scientist said when it was first viewed. Eynope has Gail-force winds and a surface with liquid Sulphur. Life is obviously impossible on this planet and will always be impossible. The conditions are too violent and anything that reaches the planet's surface is destroyed in its violence. A violence that is strangely beautiful, yet eerily frightening. Eeloo (New Texture and Heightmap, Binary, Like Europa) - Eeloo is one of the most Distant bodies in the Kerbol System. There are large underground reservoirs of liquid water, heated by geothermal vents here. Occasionally this water erupts onto the surface and freezes in the cold vacuum, covering the planet with tiny ice crystals. IceBallMoon1 "Ulia" (%70 of Eeloo, like Pluto) - Ulia is an ice-ball in a binary orbit with Eeloo. Although Ulia's surface is almost entirely covered in ice, it is so far away from Kerbol it could never naturally heat up. With conditions as extreme as these, the chances of sustaining life on this planet are virtually none-existent. Even if Ulia has calmed down after millions of years, it would probably still take terraforming to introduce any form of life. Abbandon - A small yellow-white star, Abbadon is relatively similar to Kerbol. Aphrodite - Aphrodite is a Valentina's favorite planet. Because she very like pink color. Violetta - When scientists has discovered this planet, they thought that it is more one analog of planet Eve, which they find near other stars every day. But later spectral analyzing has shown that on the this planet there is oxygen. And the purple color is likely to cause single-celled purple algae floating in the atmosphere of this planet. Nix - This dry planet has no signs of life. But its atmosphere contains oxygen! That is really strange... Icy - Aptly named, Icy is the coldest body in the Abbandon System. Although there is a thick Carbon Dioxide Atmosphere here, Icy remains just that. GasDwarf1 "Evis" (Tiny Jool, but Red) - A tiny gas giant orbiting just inside Abbandon's habitable zone, Evis is designated a "Gas Dwarf" due to it's odd mixture of composition and size. It has two large moons; one is essentially just a lifeless rock, but the other is similar in many ways to our home planet, Kerbin. SilicaMoon4 "Glapanides" (Like Kerbin's Mun) - Glapanides is a rocky moon of Evis. Unfortunately the conditions on this moon make it impossible to sustain life, which is a shame as it's in a good enough position to do so. TerraMoon1 "Taonov" (%50/50 water and land) - A large rocky moon with high gravity and a thin atmosphere. The atmosphere only extends about 2 miles above sea level, and many mountain tops are exposed to the vacuum of space. Native flora live in the deep valleys between mountain ranges. Many of these valleys are isolated, causing an interest amount of biodiversity. Erevate - A relatively large red dwarf star, Erevate allows planets to sustain life much closer to it than Kerbol. Eden - Eden is a green dry planet without oxygen in its atmosphere. But when scientists tried to find life on it, they miraculously discovered unicellular life under ice caps of this planet. Helios - This Moon is covered In seas filled with green algae. Perhaps the microbial life from Eden is not unique to that world? Scientists at KSC seem to think so. Sehera - Sehera is a very hot and dry planet named after the Kerbal god of the Sun. Its yellow soil contrasts with its green atmosphere. IceGiant3 "Aurilia" (Green and Yellow, Smaller than Jool but bigger than GasDwarf1) - Aurilia is a Calm and serene Ice giant at the farthest reaches of the Kerbol System. Its Green and Yellow atmosphere reminds Kerbals of the once gas giant Jool. IcyTerraMoon1 "Luspadus" (Tidally Heated, VERY cold) - A moon with a nitrogen and chlorine atmosphere, Luspadus is tidally heated by Aurilia and has a small ocean around it's Equator. This moon is currently devoid of life, but there's an abundance of resources, many of which are usually quite rare on Kerbin. Life is certainly possible on Luspadus, as the conditions are right, so this moon is a prime destination for any Kerbal colonization in the future. SilicaMoon7 "Cloebos" (Like Dres) - Cloebos is another moon suffering from "Dresitis" IceDesertMoon3 "Suspore" (Like Duna but Brown) - Suspore is a Katney-like moon orbiting Aurilia that is extremely cold. Comet4 "VL-624" (Captured Comet) - VL-624 is rarely shown or talked about, but it's surface is truly - alien. Gargantua - Gargantua is a massive, rapidly spinning black hole and the largest black hole in the Kerbal Galaxy. Pantagruel - A tiny white dwarf star orbiting Gargantua. Miller's Planet - Miller's Planet is a water world with extreme tides; Troughs measure mere inches, whereas Peaks can be miles high. Mann's Planet - Mann's planet is a icy world with multible layers - one of which has life. Unfortunately this data is a lie, and this planet is barren. Edmund's Planet - Edmund's planet is a dry but hospitable world that could be Kerbalkind's future home. BrownDwarf1 "Faetis" (Like Wolf 359, Replaces Nim) - Faetis is a brown dwarf - a mix between gas giant and star. It has bands of Nuclear fusion in its atmosphere, but it is not a star. It is the largest planet in the Abbandon System. OceaniaMoon2 "Ailiv" (%70 water, %30 Land) - Ailiv is a oceanic moon with huge storms. Extreme weather conditions and violent tectonic plate movement make this planet unsuitable for any life. But this planet is still fairly young, so perhaps once it has aged and calmed down a bit, life might find its way to this world. Super-TerraMoon1 "Theobos" (3-5x Kerbin size and GeeASL) - A large rocky moon that is about 4 times larger than Kerbin with high gravity and an atmosphere of mostly Carbon Dioxide. The planet is known for its many active volcanoes, crushing atmosphere, and a surface temperature enough to melt some probes, and certainly Jedidiah. Supercomputers at KSC were fed data from Theobos to calculate possible missions for brave Kerbonauts. After a few seconds, they all said, "Do not land here." IceDesertMoon2 "Athion" (Colder than Duna, Yellow/Orange) - Athion is a tidally heated desert moon with water. Surprisingly, life hasn't managed to find its way on this moon. The conditions are perfect however, so all it takes now is time and the right trigger. Asteroid3 "Oblars 738" (Captured Asteroid) - Oblars 738 is another uninteresting red asteroid. Comet3 "Smiri"(Large Captured Comet) - Smiri is a blue-green comet orbiting Faetis. There might be frozen microbes underneath the surface of the ice here. Oblok - One of the largest stars known, Oblok is a beautiful blue giant star. Lava/DesertPlanet1 "Krush" (Binary Planet with Clone that share atmosphere, new maps and orbits) - Scosucury is a tiny ball of rock in a binary orbit with Scadulea. Scosucury's surface is practically equivalent to Kerbin's Mantle, both in temperature and geological makeup. Lava/DesertPlanet2 "Krush-B" (Binary Planet with Clone that share atmosphere, new maps and orbits) - Scadulea is made of the same materials as Scosucury, but Scadulea is slightly smaller. Aelion - A large gas giant that very similar to Pre-Krakening Jool, except for its color. Phoenix - The main feature on this scorched world is the large lakes of molten rock. Phoenix is a world dominated by volcanic and tectonic activity. Volcanoes regularly dot the surface and erupt constantly. Sunflower - Sunflower is very close to it's neighbor moon - Phoenix. Due to gravitational stress from it, the surface of this strange world tends to crack and split. Opete - Opete is a medium sized star. Poseidon - A large blue gas giant, Poseidon is a calm planet orbiting Opete. Hypat - Hypat is a large desert moon orbiting Poseidon. Osiris - Osiris is a Neutron Star. Neutron stars are the densest and smallest stars known to exist in the universe; with a radius of only about 30 km, they can have a mass of about two times that of Kerbol. Ida - Ida is a small rocky planet orbiting Osirus. Isus - Isus is a large blue ice giant bombarded by its rings and Osiris. Rocko - This moon is being ripped apart by Isus. Volco - Volco is a small silicate moon orbiting Isus. Polaris - A hot, bright star nearing the end of it's life. Rumors abound that it was once very much like Kerbol before it flared up and began to die. Pandora - A very hostile planet with acidic seas and atmosphere consisting of nitrogen, the thick atmosphere of Pandora hides most of its ground. Ryla - A large gas giant that is primarily composed of hydrogen with a substantial amount of helium. It is believed to have a rocky core roughly 2000 km in diameter but otherwise has no defined surface. Surrounding the planet is a thick planetary ring system that orbits around the equator, likely as a result of two large moons colliding with each other. Hoth - Small moon of Ryla. Hoth can provide one of the most beautiful views in the whole galaxy! Cite - Cite is a young rocky planet with a diameter around the size of Eve. It is a heavily cratered world with many impact sites over 100 km in diameter. Smaller impact sites were probably much more numerous in the past but they have since eroded away. Water covers roughly a quarter of the surface, with most of it located in craters, thereby retaining the majority of Cite's habitation near them. Life is quite abundant on Cite, only the vast expanses of desert seem devoid of fauna. If you would like to help code or texture, please comment here and I will PM you a Discord Server link and we can talk. Now working with me: Nansuchao, Artyomka15, TheCanineCraver Thanks to @TheJangleMan for giving permission to me to use K.G.R. assets in this pack. Thanks to the creator of for an AMAZING Online R.N.G. (Random Name Generator) and R.D.G. (Random Description Generator).
  23. So, I love planet packs. I love exploring new worlds, establishing communications, and setting up colonies. I love habitable worlds. I love strange and interesting new worlds. I appreciate some fine little dust balls, and I enjoy gazing at the majesty of real purdy gas giants. But my problem has always been that new planet packs might add a half dozen (or more) new planets, and I only really want a couple of them. Some huge packs only add a handful I REALLY love, and many packs put new planets so far away from Kerbin that It would take ten thousand Kerbal lifetimes to get there, or leave the solar system so chaotically arranged that planets actually collide (or, you know... just kind of.. clip through each other... like wall hacks.) Some packs use their own textures, some reference CTTP, or their own textures. Sometimes, the same exact artwork is loaded in multiple different folders, saturating my system memory with three instances of the same high-def picture of some lovely, lovely dirt. So I built my own solar system in an attempt to capture exactly what I want in my little sandbox. I call it "Kerbal Impossible Solar System." I wanted many planets, and even new systems to explore. I wanted a veritable smorgasbord of habitable planets to colonize, recourse rich bodies to exploit, dangerous worlds for Jeb to go give his life for the cause on. Well, I've filled it up with planets that many of the very talented modders have created and shared with us. I've combined and organized all the extra resources that they use, like textures and decals, and such to reduce the memory overhead. I've adjusted the science values to be more appropriate, and I'm in the process of creating descriptions and appropriating mining resources. After that, I'll be working on setting up EVE atmospheres and Scatterer configs. Maybe I'll add mod support for things like research bodies, if I'm feeling especially willing to punish myself. At this point, I've put a pretty large amount of work into this project, and I would share it so you can see where I'm at so far... I totally would... But, I've stolen, BLATANTLY STOLEN the fine work of MANY of the modders in this community. I haven't asked anyone for permission to use their planets in a pack yet, because I wasn't originally planning on uploading this. While I am sure *some* of the victims of my wanton theft would be happy to share their colormaps, heightmaps, biome maps, and Normals, others, I am sure, would not allow me to make use of their artwork and files. I'll start asking some of the folks that I have... erm, "Borrowed from" and see if they mind lending the fruits of their labors to this ridiculous enterprise, but I don't suspect that every planet artist will be on board to have their products so shamelessly exploited. We shall see. So, I guess I'm just kind of posting, first of all, to test the waters and see if this is a project that would generate any real interest. Those in search of realism obviously wouldn't be interested, but there are plenty of other packs that strive for realism. This pack seeks to maximize the things that an intrepid explorer, a true capitalist... a conquest minded imperialist, would appreciate. Even just people who want to get out and explore, don't really care where they end up, and don't want to have to worry about transfer windows, or plan gravity assists Kerbin years ahead of time. And secondly, to ask if anyone has planets that I may use? Maybe you are the creator of a popular planet pack, and would be happy to let me pilfer your artstuffs. Maybe you've made planets in the past, but never found a place to put them to good use. Maybe you are just really good with GIMP and like making planets, and wouldn't mind helping me fill in the gaps with some custom requests. Anything helps. (I can't actually draw / draft planets myself, so I really am totally dependent on the charity of this community if you guys want to see this come into fruition. Of course, credit will be given where it is due.
  24. Hello guys. I am working on a new mod that adds in a temperate gas-giant. The mod deletes Duna, but makes up for the loss of the planet with a gas-giant and four moons! I will release the mod soon. Currently, I have not added in Biomes or Science Defs, so the mod is complete if you cheat and play in sandbox mode. However, I need to finish painting up biome maps and making at least some custom science defs before I release the mod to the community. I appreciate your patience. Here are some shots of the planets: Bervin: Alru: Goval: Unox: Some shots of Cavran: Oh yeah, it has been out for a while, just forgot to post it here.
  25. 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.
