Which the player can combine into 1/2 small clusters/galaxies. An Optional Stock System Overhaul is also under development. All systems will be based on real life star systems and will contain existing discovered planets. I'll be aiming to be scientific accurate planets (to some degree). These projects will be compatible with the Interstellar Consortium Plugin but will also function on their own. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Currently 1 system is finished and released.

  2. Outer Planets Mod v2.2.6 This version of Outer Planets Mod has been built to work for KSP version 1.3.1 - 1.8.*. About The Outer Planets Mod is a mod that expands the outer edges of the Kerbol system to create something akin to the real Solar System's. It adds Kerbalized versions of Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto as well as several of these planets' moons. These faraway planets provide a challenge rarely encountered in Kerbal Space Program; you'll have to figure out new transfer windows, manage your power supply differently, provide your spacecraft with more Delta-V and be ready to travel years or even decades. This mod is being developed and maintain by a group of collaborators, alongside and following the initial development of the mod creator, CaptRobau. Features Explore 15 new highly detailed planets and moons, all in a stock-a-like artstyle. Discover never before seen worlds, such as a sub-satellite, Trojan moon or a set of binary bodies. Collect science in over 140 biomes, with almost a thousand unique science blurbs. Custom terrain textures and improved ground scatter has made planets and moons never look so good up close. A full set of KSPedia entries for OPM's various bodies helps you to navigate the far reaches of the Kerbol system. Includes a Level 4 Tracking Station upgrade (requires CustomBarnKit) to boost your communication range out to the furthest reaches of the system without requiring additional modded antennas. Extensive third-party mod integration means you can play OPM with a whole range of other mods. Download You can either manually download and install Outer Planets Mod via the button and installation instructions below or by installing it automatically via CKAN (first-party support of CKAN is provided and new releases should automatically be indexed by CKAN in due course). Installation Instructions Extract the GameData folder found in the downloadable .zip directly into your Kerbal Space Program install directory. If located correctly, the OPM and CTTP directories should be found at: \Kerbal Space Program\GameData\OPM & \Kerbal Space Program\GameData\CTTP Dependencies The following KSP mods must be installed prior to using Outer Planets Mod (ensure you install the correct version of the dependencies for your version of KSP): Kopernicus Module Manager Community Terrain Texture Pack - bundled within OPM Supported Mods Custom Barn Kit Community Resource Pack Distant Object Enhancement PlanetShine Research Bodies Visual Mods By default, Outer Planets Mods does not come with any included visual pack to support EVE or Scatterer. There are a few mods that add these atmospheric visual enhancements to OPM as follows: Stock Visual Enhancements - Retextures the Gas Giants and adds atmospheric scatter and cloud support to all atmospheric bodies. Does not apply effects if Pood's OPM-VO is installed also. Pood's Outer Planets Mod - Visual Overhaul - Retextures the Gas Giants and adds atmospheric scatter and cloud support to all atmospheric bodies. Not been updated in a while so your milage may vary.

  3. Hello Kerbonauts. I see you have found your way here. Welcome to NTSP2, or Noah the Smol's Planet Pack. This is a heavily indev pack adding 3 planets, 1 dwarf planet, and 9 moons. It currently only uses Kopernicus and KittopiaTech for the mod, but compatibilities and actual test builds will come soon. The NTSPP first draft is now out, including only Daki. Test it out and give me some feedback! Object list is here: All scale is measured in this way: Mini: 0.01> Nano: 0.01-0.1 Micro: 0.1-0.5 No Prefix: 0.5-1.5 Super: 1.5-5.0 Mega: 5.0-10.0 Ultra: 10.0-30.0 Hyper: 30.0< Noah The Smol’s Planet Pack Planets centered around Kerbol. Kerbol Moho Daki- new moon for Moho. Very dull brown, a Micro-Mun. Eve Kerbin Ettren- new ice giant between Kerbin and Duna. Technically an Ultra-Kerbin. Deep red near poles fades to more orange and tan near equator. Eynen- Super-Gilly, pale pink, orbits quite close to Ettren to the point where halving its orbit would place it within the Roche limit. Yurref- Munlike, about three times Eynen’s distance. Very slight pale teal with a very thin set of rings close to the surface. Werron- Super-Mun, 4/3x Yurref’s orbit, pale red with lots of very prominent, small craters. Looks almost like red cheese. Duna Dres Tirnitt- Haumealike object, Dreslike in size, darker purple near equator than near poles, no rings, one moon. Rennios- Gillylike, very deep cobalt blue, from the actual cobalt on its surface. Jool Teddest- Super-Jool, mild blues and greens colour range. Thin rings. Griessk- Minmuslike, mild purple. Ilnur- Micro-Mun, deep yellow and red from major sulfur stains due to volcanoes Uljinn- Dunalike, except it’s a pale green due to strange surface chemicals. Covered with shallow, yellow craters Eeloo Yttrel- Hyper-Kerbin, though technically a gas giant. It is a pale purple with a small blue polar storm. Enmir- Yttrel’s only moon, it is a Nano-Mun covered in shallow craters, overall a very dull blue.
  4. 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
  5. Welcome to my second mod thread. If you haven't already noticed, I've pretty much halted development for RealExpansion due to low community interest and me wanting to persue Far Lands. Far Lands adds more star systems into the game in a similar style to KSS, with multiple filler stars for gravity assists and to look nice.

  7. The Ultimate Challenge...A massive boulder...whoever beat it literally beat the game, and i'm currently into it. Here's The current Challenge Thread. Werhner finished all the Landers, he later called Simone, Jeb, and their friends to discuss about the names, and where each of them will go to in the mission. "Alright, here is The Eve Lander, it's 44 tons and will take a Kerbal to Eve surface and get to orbit with its own power from above 2100 meters ASL, who will get there and what shlould we call it ???" Werhner said. "We can't let Simone hog all the glory, we'll show him what we can do !" Said Jeb, others replied "YYYYEEEEEAAAAAHHHHH", and Simone responded "Whatev, give me a break and i'll leave everything except Eve and Tylo to you guys, i'll call it 'Grizzly Reaper'". "This is our Duna Lander, it will also Land on Vall, who wish to get there ???", Val replied "MEEEEHHHH, i'll be using that Lander all the way in this mission, i'll call it 'Vendetta' and i'll go with Duna, Ike and Vall". "This is our Moho Lander, we don't have to worry about electricity in Moho, it'll also be used around Eve system and Duna system, who wants to land it ???", Bill answered "Me, i'll land that on Moho, it'll be fun, i'll go to land on Gilly, Moho and Pol, and won't use anything but EVA pack to land on Pol, i'll call it 'Electra'". "This is the Ion Lander, it will take on Eeloo, Mun and anything smaller, who wants it ???", Simone replied "Jeb and Bob will need that, i'll call it 'Megawatt'". "Our best Laythe Lander up to date, who wants ???", Jeb replied "Yes, me, like Simone said, Bob and i'll need the Megawatt, i'll call this 'Hex' and i'll go to Dres, Eeloo and Laythe, Bob will go to Mun, Minmus and Bop". "Simone...how are you going to call your private Tylo Lander ???", Simone answered "Big Boi it is". "This is how the smaller recoverable Landers being recovered. Simone, you have my trust and you're allowed to recover The Landers" Said Werhner, which Simone agreed hesitatelessly. -Mothership : (2 Types) Mercury (Moho and everything else, has only 1 or 2 Landers attached to it, released in Eve). Joologist (Jool 5, bigger Mercury with real pods, more engines, more tanks and has 4 Landers attached to it). -Lifter : Sheep v3 Ascent Stage (AKA Chimera). Conclusion : 5 Kerbals to a WHOLE Kerbolar System Tour and back...With NO ISRU !!! Landings for each Kerbals : -Simone Kerman (9) : Eve, Tylo. (+Anziephus, Spade, Putto, Ovis, Shrek, Lotus, Duran) -Jebediah Kerman (9) : Dres, Laythe, Eeloo. (+Ebenus, Rheis, Arane, Nuu, Akel, Nuuma) -Valentina Kerman (8) : Duna, Ike, Vall. (+Pherph, Tekcate, Dhar, Vra, Dauble) -Bill Kerman (8) : Gilly, Moho, Pol. (+Epam, Oorma, Phoe, Flo, Durus) -Bob Kerman (8) : Mun, Minmus, Bop. (+Eiwei, Tekili, Tekova, Mez, Es) Status : Mission Accomplished !!!!!!
  8. This is just a thingy for discussion ATM. If anybody wants to they can make it into a mod. Also, credit to @Felsmak for the Voonian, Orbonean, and Naalean systems. CONCEPT ART FOR BODIES (apologize for bad drawings) New bodies are bolded, changed bodies italicised. INNER SYSTEM OBJECTS It appears this object may need ridiculous amounts of Delta-V, and radiators, to get to. Orbiting four times closer than Moho does to the sun, Heet is the closest object to the sun. Better plan ridiculous slingshots to get there, because it is only 24km in diameter and has tidal locking, which, coupled with its proximity, makes its near side glow straw-hot. Eve now has a larger moon. Adam is about 100km in radius and orbits not-really-that-close to Eve, and it has the same apparent diameter as the Mun does on Kerbin's surface. Gilly is also no longer Eve's moon. It has been moved out to the Kiazzi belt with Dres, Usta, Qlass, and Kaspir, and has a tiny moon of its own, called Bark. Minmus and Mun are now in similar planes, and have realistically eccentric orbits around Kerbin. Kerbin has also been given inclination and eccentricity changes, and Duna's orbit has been changed to match that. Error is a NKO (Near-Kerbin Object). It has no danger for impact anytime soon, as it doesn't really cross Kerbin's orbit much. It's kinda high-inclination, so a Kerbin slingshot is recommended to rendezvous with it, as Duna doesn't have the gravity to make such a plane change. Its small moon is called Bug. Just recently, two new moons of Duna have been discovered. Pike and Dike have orbits inward from Ike and therefore orbit faster than Duna rotates. They sometimes eclipse, occult, and/or transit each other and Ike. The Duna Soft Drinks Company, known for Ike cola, Pike lemon-lime soda, and Dike root beer, approves of the naming scheme. The second-most massive asteroid in the Kiazzi belt, aptly named Usta, is truly a sight to behold...or not. It's kind of a less extreme version of Dres, so you might not find much there; its orbit is less eccentric, less inclined, closer to the Sun, but then again...some groups of craters look like snowkerbals. So that's a plus. Kaspir was only recently discovered. A little bit smaller than Gilly, it appears to be alone and with nothing else to keep it company. It's also drab and won't change your trajectory much with a flyby, not even a grazing one. This is Plane-Change Slingshot Qlass. If you want to get to Qlass, launch a rocket with extra Delta-V to get all the way out to Jool and fly over the pole, and then you will rendezvous. Class dismissed. Comets really are interesting. We'd name it Thomas, but then again...Enjin actually sounded better in the long run. We don't know why. It's very small, smaller even than Gilly, but not as much as, say, Daphy (whatever that is) or Bark. Tootoot is not a comet. It's an asteroid. It certainly has an orbit like a comet, though. It's shaped like a "bowling pin," and rotates like a "bowling pin" knocked over by a "bowling ball." No moons to be found here! MIDDLE SYSTEM OBJECTS Jool has been found to have a large storm on it now, as well as a tenuous system of rings. With the rings, Animal and Throb, asteroid moons, have been discovered. They are what we call ring shepherds; they orbit within the rings and drive other ring particles away from it. Laythe's water oceans are no more. They are now simply oceans of sulfur, same as its atmosphere...and volcanic plumes. It is also hot enough that you will need radiators there. It's also no longer this large moon we thought it was. We also used to think Tylo was larger and more massive. And now we recognize that it was actually parallax, and that both Laythe and Tylo are only slightly larger than Vall, based on Koyager data. You don't need much to land on them, despite the ridiculous myths surrounding its existence. Klip is unique. Very unique. It looks almost like the space around it and is very hard to detect, and used to be thought of as a hole in Jool until the Koyager probes flew by it. Now it completes the 1:2:4:8 resonance that Klip, Tylo, Vall, and Laythe have. Bop is an "irregular moon" of Jool, orbiting further outward than the KTVL resonant moons. It appears to be brownish and tiny. Just like Gilly! Ion is also an irregular moon, in a kinda polar orbit around Jool, so the line is therefore blurred between prograde and retrograde moons. Some people say it is the namesake of the ion drive. Pol is a lighter irregular moon, in color and mass. It is a retrograde-orbiter around Jool, too. Voon is the larger of the gas giant planets of the system, being 1.5 times the size of Jool. It has only one more moon than Jool does, thus meaning it's a better target for exploration. It is kinda orange in color and has an expansive ring system. Rocko is the innermost of Voon's moons. it is a reddish asteroid moon about a third the size of Sotus. Daphy is tiny enough to be pretty much invisible. What is it, 500 meters? Jumping on it will send you into an orbit around Voon, so I'd advise you not do that. You can land on it using an ion engine, for Kraken's sake. Eeloo has been moved in an orbit around Voon. It occupies the E ring of Voon. If you took Klip, shrunk it down, and removed its white speckles, you get Sotus. It's kinda full of cracks and stuff you might not want to think about too hard. Fonso is kind of like Voon's Laythe. Expect it doesn't have volcanoes. So yeah. It's just a boring piece of work that orbits outward from Voon. And has an atmosphere. Jeez, Voon must like ripoffs! "D'oh!" is what we Kerbals say when we recognize that we have missed this moon all along. We used to think it was a spot on Fonso that made it interesting. And then we recognized it was a new moon and said "D'oh!" The name stuck. Now we call it Doe. It orbits further out than Fonso does, enough to be in a 1:4 resonance, also having a high inclination. We have no idea why this is even called Potatus. Potatus kinda looks like a "potato," whatever that is. We're astronauts, not botanists! ...wait a second, where is that botanist from our recent Duna mission? Ud has the appearance of a "walnut" or something. Voon, stop trying to give us terms that we don't understand! Arre is certainly something. Though only slightly larger than Dres, it has been proven to have rings around it. If something has rings it must have shepherd moons, ergo it must have a moon system. Bill was named after Bill Kerman II. There have been lots of Bill Kermans, to be honest. Also, it orbits retrograde and is highly inclined, so...unless it's close you better escape the system. Orbo is something called an ice giant. It's reddish in color, and used to be thought of as a star before Bill Kerman I came along and disproved everything previously thought of about the solar system. Now people don't want to make any claims about this planet. Nobody knows whether its name is Lucky or just plain Luck. So we at the Kerbal Astronomical society have given it both names, just because we can. Ump kind of makes us laugh every time we say it. We don't know why, it just does. Maybe because it's so tiny! Now this moon is actually interesting! Toop looks like Ud, except upsized and with a ridge not so giant in relation to its size. Dack, in our honest opinion, is very cool. It has a crater with numerous rings, not unlike the other gas giants. Rings around the crater. Give it up for Naal, the newest member of the Solar System. It is a little bit smaller than Orbo and has a purple atmosphere, not unlike Eve. It's not rocky, though! I don't get why anybody would think that. Corn on the Cobb, anybody? Cobb is a cube-like moon that orbits closely to Naal, in fact close enough to maybe even crash into it someday. Kyle...we have no idea where its name came from but this moon certainly was named after some character from a certain show. It orbits and rotates backward around Naal, and is believed to be a captured dwarf planet. The name for this moon, Loopy, is self-explanatory. It was believed to have been thrown out of its original close orbit by Kyle's capture. Now its orbit is one of the most eccentric and inclined in the Solar System. OUTER SYSTEM OBJECTS The largest Kipper Belt object, Ploon is also the largest dwarf planet. It orbits twice every time Naal does thrice. Its tenuous atmosphere is thick enough to need a heatshield, but still not enough to aerocapture. It is, however, useful for aeroslingshots. It does have a significant moon system, but only one is notable. Khan is that notable moon. Its gravity is strong enough to pull the barycenter, or center of mass, of the Ploon-Khan system outside of Ploon's surface. Both are mutually tidally locked like Duna-Ike, but the line wasn't blurred with that; Ike couldn't pull Duna out of the barycenter, so Ike is officially a moon of Duna. Now we at the Kerbal Astronomical Society can't figure out what a planet is and what a moon is! Kenobi, Skywalker, Solo, and Organa are the four smaller moons of Ploon-Khan, in that order. We have no idea where the names came from but we know they sound cool. Maybe we watched too much "Star Wars" or something. Hammy is odd, odd, odd, in more ways than one. For one, it spins fast. For two, it looks like a deformed "pancake", whatever that is. For three, it orbits seven times for every 12 Naal does. Hack is the sole moon of Hammy. It's kinda beefy and strong enough not to succumb to tidal locking. Mayma is a red object outside Naal's influence. No resonances, no moons, nothing. Just a slow-rotating red dwarf planet with a weird dark spot on it...wait a minute... Ryths is actually Mayma's moon. At the moment it orbits edge-on to Kerbin so its orbit can't be determined, and its darkness makes it lost in the glare of Mayma. We need to send a probe there sometime! Look, something's rising! The sun? No, Rise. Rise orbits very far out from the Sun, its periapsis just outside Ploon's apoapsis. Just know that its orbit is pretty odd, but kinda downplayed compared to Samm's. It has a moon even! Nomon is Rise's only moon, a little bit smaller than Sotus, and very bright like Rise. Nomon is also very easy to spot if you look at Rise through a telescope...at Rise's periapsis. We were very darn lucky! Now we have a record-holder! Samm's orbit is like Rise's taken 10 times further and exaggerated. It's also kind of a polar orbit, which is very odd, and is periapsis is between the apoapses of Ploon and Rise. We know there could have been Joolean slingshots involved. But Naal wouldn't have the gravity to do that. It could have been captured from another passing-by star. But we're way isolated...
  9. Status Update as of 8/12/2019 I will be releasing the mod ASAP in an early state to gain feedback on it. Many parts of it are incomplete, such as lack of biome maps and some terrain overhauls. Scatterer is not compatible at the moment because I'm focused on making the planets themselves playable before I add visuals. Recent Changelog - 8/12/2019 -Updated multiple pressure gradients of certain objects -reworked Ola's terrain, still some glaring issues that need fixing before release -Joule's texture has been updated Known issues -Bodies appear black in the RnD building, and the main menu body appears black when returning to the main menu. -Occasional seams that only appear in the map, but not on the surface. -I'm bad at scatterer, so the atmospheres look way thicker than they really are. Will fix. -I'm not sure how often this will be updated, but I'll try to get around to it every once in a while. Reason - college. To Do -Add the rest of the planned system -Add hidden planets (good luck finding em) -Fix seriously bad-looking terrain on some bodies -Finish Biome maps -Touch up early versions of some bodies -Make proper scatterer configs (gonna be a while) Screenshots and Bodies Myna, the new Mun. Very green. Klip, much larger and heavier than Minmus. Filled with hills and some sharp ridges. Grasse, a heavy rock close to Eve's old orbit. It doesn't look pleasant from space, but it makes for a great drive. Bedu, a gas dwarf close to Moho's orbit. It harbors two small moons, neither of which have atmospheres. Kase, one of them, can be seen here. Cinder, a moon made of popcorn. Confirmation needed. Argent, a planet so close to the sun that its surface has been blasted away. Touch up in progress. Aeris and Sedra. Props to anyone who can guess what show I based them off of. They were only shown for a few seconds and the surface of Aeris for a few minutes in the first episode. The water was not visible from space, but I added it because it looks nicer. Bit, Moon of Byte. 1/8 the size, too. Vita and one of its moons, Ola (serious work needed on terrain at the moment) Joule, the new Jool (needs polar distortions still). Ohm, a large moon with a thin atmosphere. It has high peaks for its size, and a lot of islands. Amp, a very large rocky moon without an atmosphere. Rework is mostly complete, just messing with colors and a few areas of terrain. Spark, a spherical asteroid only a few km across. I'd remake it, but the surface is too fun. Volt, a large desert moon. The atmosphere isn't as thick as it looks, I'll fix it eventually. Ira, a small, dense ice moon. It has a thin atmosphere, but planes shouldn't be too hard to land here if they're light enough. No oxygen. Elias, the current replacement for Eeloo. It will be moved out much farther than its current position. Major overhaul in progress, unless someone actually likes the way this thing looks. Any thoughts/criticism? Please share it with me, I need every bit I can get.
  10. With Kerbal Space Program 1 the Planets and Moons generally feel relatively small to our real world counter parts. Will Kerbal Space Program 2 feature larger scaled planets and moons of the current Kerbal system or will planets and moons stay relatively the same size in Kerbal Space Program 1?
  11. CURRENTLY IN DEVELOPMENT Screenshots coming soon
  12. 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

  14. Hello, and this is my new upcoming mod of Way Too Big Solar System It will add god-knows-how-many planets, moons, and other objects just to crowd the solar system up. There will be at least 3 objects between the stock objects already here. That would become a total of 25+ new planets and 10+ new dwarf and minor objects. Currently, the system list is: (with red for too hot, orange for warm, green for habitable, cyan for chilly, blue for cold, and violet for frozen), with an * for a star(with the text color as a star's color), ' for a terrestrial, " for a gas planet, . for a dwarf planet and - for an asteroid/comet. New objects are bolded, moons without names are the planet's first two letters plus a number.

  15. Outer Worlds tweaks the moons of Jool to make them more interesting. as of 0.02, it currently moves Vall, and resizes Jool, Vall, Tylo, and Bop. Download: https://github.com/KingKerb/Outer-Worlds/releases Changelog:
  16. Stock Planet Expansion or S.P.E is a pack that adds countless moons to the Kerbal solar system for you to explore! From Moho to Eeloo, we got you covered! Meet the moons Grillian, moon of Moho "Grillian is the Mohonian moon. It's surface is covered in vast, trademark canyons that have baffled scientists ever since their discovery. Strangely though, Grillian appears more frequently in discussions of whether or not 'Mohonian' is a word rather than it does in scientific reports." Grillian is a half-molten mountainous moon in orbit of Moho. It's lava actually damages spacecrafts, so perhaps it's best to stay clear of those areas. Driea, moon of Eve "Driea is a small, pink moon in orbit of Eve. For reasons unknown though it has a huge, silver mountain on it's equator. Scientists still do not know what caused it, considering Driea is likely geologically inactive, and thus Mount Hyacinthum remains a mystery to Kerbalkind." Driea is Eve's first moon, Gilly becoming Eve's second moon due to it's larger orbit. Driea has a landscape covered in hills as well as one truly enormous mountain that science cannot explain. Trao, moon of Kerbin "Once a moon similar to Mun, Trao has been struck by a rather large object a long time ago, resulting in a large impact crater on one side of the moon that reaches all the way to the moon's core. The resulting debris either impacted the moon elsewhere, or is still orbiting Kerbin. The impact also caused the moon to spin out of control, so be cautious." Trao becomes a new moon of Kerbin, it becomes the iconic blue planet's new second moon due to it orbiting further away than the moon, yet not as far out as Minmus. The debris from the impact also formed a ring around Kerbin near Trao's orbit. Smov and Prolla, moons of Duna "Smov is a strange, uneven moon orbiting Duna. For some weird reason it shares it's larger neighbor Ike's pattern of a gray surface with strange, darker areas. One thing is certain, Smov is a lot more bumpy." "Prolla is a strange moon and the outermost of Duna's three moons. While Smov shares it's colors with Ike, Prolla seems to have colors similar to Duna, with red lowlands and ice-covered highlands. Why Smov and Prolla love cosplaying as the two larger bodies in the Dunaian system is a mystery." Smov is a smaller, asteroid-like moon while Prolla is about 1.5 times Smov's size, about half as large as Ike. The two moons dominate the outer regions of Duna's sphere of influence, but how the two moons got there in the first place is a mystery. Dres-1 and Dres-2, the moons that orbit Dres (who would've guessed?) D-1 and D-2 are two little rocky moons orbiting Dres with the same inclination. D-1 is an icy asteroid, a remnant of the solar system's birth. D-2 is also an asteroid, but is more metallic in composition. Klan, moon of Jool Klan is, without even a shadow of a doubt, the most bizarre moon ever discovered by the Kerbal Astronimcal Society. Nobody truly knows what is going on down there, on its strange and ravaged surface. Be wary, Kerbals. Froth, moon of Eeloo "Froth is a magnificent little ball of ice in orbit around Eeloo. Eons ago a few annoying little asteroids slammed into the icy surface, exposing the moon's inner layers. The debris from this event formed Froth's iconic rings of ice particles. Taking a shard from the rings of Froth is said to bring luck." A moon that closely resembles the planet it orbits save for the fact that this moon has a set of beautiful rings. The jealous Eeloo has attempted to steal these rings several times, but the rings are in a stable orbit around Froth and are unlikely to leave anytime soon.

  17. What it does Re-textures Jool to give it a Great Green Spot. Adds four distinct biomes to Jool, with their own distinct science definitions. The biomes roughly follow the patterns of Jool's cloud bands, and are: Equatorial Cloud Belt Temperate Cloud Belt Polar Cloud Belt Great Green Spot Note that you still can't land on Jool (it's a gas giant!), so the biomes are only useful for space and atmospheric science. Download from SpaceDock License: MIT Note: Requires Kopernicus (install separately; not included with this mod). How to install Make sure you've installed Kopernicus. Unzip into GameData, same as with any other mod.
  18. Xen's Planet Collection: Hey! This is a collection of stock-alike and (mostly) procedurally-generated Kopernicus planet mods I've created. They can be downloaded separately, but I plan to later add one download for all of them. All of the mods work independently of each other, so if you don't want to download all of them you don't have to. Download link: SpaceDock (I'm no longer updating the CurseForge mirrors, it's too much extra work for very little gain) Requires: Kopernicus Mod Support: - If installed with Outer Planets Mod, only Kyx and Beros will be added, and will orbit Plock. - If installed with SigmaBinary, Eeloo and Alu will orbit a barycenter between them. - Other mod support is planned but I'm too busy to implement it all properly. Installation: - Install Kopernicus (v1.2.1-1) - Drag XPC folder into KSP's GameData folder (If the folder already exists, merge them and allow it to replace any old files). - Enjoy! Current mods: - Mios system (1 planet, 2 moons) v0.5 - Moons of Eeloo (3 moons, changes to Eeloo) v0.6 - Richell system (1 planet, 1 moon) v0.2 - Moons of Eve (2 moons) v0.1 - Moons of Duna (1 moon, rings around Duna) v0.1 Future Plans (v1.0): - Settings.cfg file which can be edited to chose which planets you want enabled - Configs for Distant Object Enhancement and Planet Shine - Additional science reports + science reports for Dmagic Orbital Science - Delta V map including all added bodies + documented transfer windows - Planned additions to each body (almost all bodies will receive added procedural craters): - Mios: Oxygen atmosphere, more varied terrain + Serc will have three massive craters - Eeloo: Change Eeloo's texture + possibly add liquid nitrogen oceans (like Pluto may have had previously) - Eve: Add changes to Eve and Gilly + rearrange the orbits of all moons - Duna: Big changes to Nyke's appearance + minor changes to Ike - Richell: Add another moon - Minor Planets (new): Add analogues for Vesta and Ida/Dactyl (Italicized/underlined features are done) **Community-made Mission Reports**: See photo albums of the mods in action! Extended Kerbol System Exploration by eloquentJane features the planet collection alongside the Outer Planets mod and potentially others. ==================================================================== The Mios System Mod: The Mios System Mod currently adds one planet with two of it's own moons between the orbits of Dres and Duna. This is my first mod so please, constructive criticism is very much welcome! ==================================================================== Moons of Eeloo Mod: I hate to say it, but Eeloo looks pretty... boring. And seeing as it is (most of the time) the farthest planet from Kerbin I've never felt the urge to actually visit it. I made this mod to make Eeloo a lot more interesting, by adding 3 new moons and an atmosphere to Eeloo. ==================================================================== The Richell System Mod: This was my entry to the second contest of the Kopernicus Creativity Marathon. I have since given it a moon, Iber. Richell orbits between Dres and Jool and has large polar oceans and a thick atmosphere (inspired by Saturn's moon Titan). ==================================================================== Moons of Eve Mod: This mod adds two new moons to Eve. ==================================================================== Moons of Duna Mod: This mod adds a new moon to Duna, as well as a ring system. ==================================================================== Acknowledgements: - The Kopernicus team (Thomas P., NathanKell and KillAshley) - Especially big thanks to the creation of Kopernicus Examples which are soooo helpful - The White Guardian, whose PQSMod tutorials started me off - Sigma, for creating the Sigma Binary mod - r4m0n for his FloatCurve editor - CaptRobau's Outer Planets Mod, which inspired me to create a Kopernicus mod - Probably more people but I can't think of any
  19. 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: https://www.paypal.me/clockwork13 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: https://spacedock.info/mod/1750/InterKalactic 2 Download K++ on SpaceDock: https://spacedock.info/mod/1732/Kerbol++ 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.
  20. So, I want to start making planets and planet packs in ksp, but I don't really know how to do it. I currently have this (images below), but I would like someone to help me that knows how to do it with kopernicus. How do I do it?
  21. I want to create a new planet in Kopernicus, and most of it seems OK - I'm using The White Guardian's guide - but I have no idea what the values in the atmosphere curves mean. I understand the first one is height and the second is the temperature/pressure at that height, but what are the other 2?
  22. Landing and return for once, something really satisfying, but usually not so challenging, because of small lazy rockets to get there, however, since it's quite easy, it's possible to land on a certain body for at least TWICE, TWICE the ascent, TWICE the landing and TWICE the re-entry. Rules : -No Docking. (except if your PC cant handle a Mun and back 2x vessel) -No ISRU. -No Trivializing Mods (mods that make it trivial), structural Mods are welcome. -Have screenshots of important moments. (Videos are welcome) -NO CHEATING (Debug menu or Hyperedit or such). -Seabed landings are fine. -No external seats (except if you have a good reason for that). -All versions are welcome, all details will be listed. -No vessel recovering, except when you're done, but you need to land on Kerbin before another launch. This Challenge was inspired by : The Gamer Alchemist, Hazard-ish and @Stratzenblitz75 and also @EvermoreAlpaca Links : Mun and back twice. Mun and back 3 times (probably cheating, but still good). Duna and back 3 times (The Gamer Alchemist). Duna and back 3 times (Stratzenblitz75). Eeloo and back twice. LIST OF SUCCESFUL ENTRIES (ONLY KERBAL FORUM USERS THAT ARE MENTIONED) Rocket Division (Vertical launch, ISP up to 800) : -@Stratzenblitz75 (Duna and back 3 times, used an IMMENSE full chemical beast that also visited Minmus during second mission, Video up there) -@GRS (Dres and back 2 times, Album here) Spaceplane Division (Horizontal launch, ISP at least 800 except RAPIER's closed cycle mode) : -@EvermoreAlpaca (Eeloo and back 2 times, used an small-ish ion SSTO with a "seat in service bay" Video up there)
  23. I was looking into Kopernicus planet pack mods compatible with 1.6.1 (because mine was a fail - apparently i was using 1.4 instructions) and all the good ones were outdated (good ones: planet factory, kerbal galaxy, etc). Are there any ones you know of (or have created) that work with 1.6.1? Just wondering.
  24. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Hello there! This Mod aims to add a stockalike Saturn analogue to the Kerbol System along with some moons. Saru is located between Jool and Dres at the moment, if anyone has a better idea of a placement let me know. If anyone has suggestions for new moon ideas or minor changes let me know. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- DISCLAIMER: I am mainly making this mod for fun and because I want these types of planets in my save. I am a complete noob when it comes to planet modding so it may be a while until I am able to get a stable version available for release. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Current Planets/Moons: Saru Plez Durgen Hypo
  25. 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
