  1. P L A N E T S H I N E Why PlanetShine? After trying some mods to improve visuals and get something more realistic looking, I transformed KSP into something really good looking, but I was really happy with the result, but I felt that something was still missing. When in low orbit of a planet, the side of my ship which was facing the planet was completely dark, which was not realistic! It should have been illuminated a bit by the planet's own reflective light! I decided to fix that with this mod, by making planets and moons to reflect their own (colored) light to your vessel. This phenomenon is called in real life albedo or planetshine : What does this mod actually do? (Summary) When you are close to a planet or moon, its bright side reflects (colored) light to your vessel. More realistic ambient light in vacuum, very dark by default, can be customized. More realistic ambient light on the ground and atmosphere of planets/moons, tinted by the surface color. Very lightweight: almost no RAM used, and your FPS should not change. Additional features Settings menu to customize many parameters, as well as several quality/performance settings. Support for the Toolbar mod. Planet and moons light configuration supports Module Manager and loading across GameData folder, and can be easily customized by players or other mods. Conflicts with the mod "Ambient Light Adjustment" because it has exactly the same feature: custom ambient light settings with a slider. When close to the sun, the sunlight becomes dramatically intense. Screenshots You can see the subtle red light over Duna, green over Jool, and blue over Kerbin: http://imgur.com/a/4MODI Before / After Screenshots by CaptRobau: http://imgur.com/a/Nekay Recommended mods for the best experience Environmental Visual Enhancements for clouds and city lights. A good galaxy skybox (using Texture Replacer): Oinker's Skybox Teflon's Skybox Chatterer for adding ambient sounds that really improve the immersion. An atmospheric sky enhancing mod: SkyTonemapper (Stable) makes the sky look better by smoothing it (removes the banding effect) Scatterer (Experimental - many bugs) makes the sky and atmosphere looking really great and much more realistic, sunsets become amazing. Engine lighting for adding realistic lighting to engines thrust. Surface Lights to illuminate the ship when it gets really dark. Additional information I would appreciate feedback on this mod a lot! I spent a lot of time trying to make this reflected light to behave as consistent as possible, and I think it's pretty well tuned by now. Planet and moons colors are all editable in "CelestialBodies.cfg", and you can change a few other settings in "Settings.cfg", such as the vacuum light level (quite low by default), and the reflection light intensity. Compatible with all game versions from 0.25 to 1.0, and probably older versions as well. This mod includes version checking using MiniAVC. If you opt-in, it will use the internet to check whether there is a new version available. Data is only read from the internet and no personal information is sent. For a more comprehensive version checking experience, please download the KSP-AVC Plugin. Changelog Known issues Conflicts with other mods that change ambient light, such as Ambient Light Adjustment and AmbientLightShifter Not tested much on x64, might cause issues Might have minor issues with Kopernicus, which optionally provides custom atmospheric and vacuum ambient lights. Planned features Automatic detection of planet colors and atmosphere, no more need for CelestialBodies.cfg (working on it right now) Actual planetshine (reflected lights between two planet/moon) Different reflected light color depending on the biome (land/sea/poles) Sunset/sunrise lights More performance tweaks, such as reducing the number of light depending on the situation, or using a diffuse wrapping shader Choice between presets for ambient light (realistic or stock) and other settings Better (future) compatibility with other mods Credits I copied the planets/moons color list from the Distant Object Enhancement mod Thanks to TheSexiestofClowns on Reddit for his screenshot that I used at the beginning A lot of thanks to the people who helped me over IRC, such as Thomas, Rbray89, and a few others ----------------- Support the author If you like this plugin, please consider donating, it will be greatly appreciated: ----------------- Download standard versions: 0.2.5.2 for KSP 1.2 0.2.5 for KSP 1.1 0.2.4.2 for KSP 1.0.5 or older ----------------- Download experimental version 0.5 for KSP 1.0.5 or older: details in this spoiler: Copyright 2014, Valerian Gaudeau, Apache license 2.0
  2. Fala galera tudo bom? Fiz um vídeo (gigante) explicando como instalar alguns dos mods mais famosos de visual no jogo e como configurar algumas coisas para que rode suave em alguns PCs mais fracos. Aqui está o link para o vídeo! https://youtu.be/Im76MTsx_9I Muito obrigado a quem der uma olhada.
  3. What mods should I use to make KSP as beautiful and realistic looking as possible.
  4. THIS THREAD IS FOR THE DISCUSSION OF CROSSING THE SVE AND KSPRC VISUAL PACKS TOGETHER INTO A COMBINED VISUAL OVERHAUL. DO NOT POST FILES CONTAINING A COMBINED PACK AS YOU WILL BE VIOLATING THE TERMS OF THE LICENSE USED FOR KSPRC. _________________________________________________ First of all you have to understand what each mod is aiming to do, understand the contents of the packages and how they work... To combine these mods, u basically have to delete the config of one of these mods and give your gamedata the other one. (its not rocketscience, really! ;)) Since I don’t want to discuss each config & feature provided, I’ll just stick to the most common mixtures out there, namely replacing KSPRC’s Scatterer or/and EVE(clouds) config with the one coming with SVE. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Best way to get this running is starting from the scratch: Cleanup your gamedata folder of all configs for one of the above named mods. Especially the BoulderCo folder(http://i.imgur.com/yOtSmgL.png) beeing is the “stock” EVE config provided by @rbray89. Forgetting this is one of the most common mistakes. You should start then by copying the whole KSPRC folder into your gamedata – we can delete things later. Just don’t forget anything. Start KSP and make sure the config is working => quit Scatterer: Since SVE is just coming with a config for Jool & Eve, you can easily copy and replace the scatterer folder form the SVE -archive over to your gamedata. That would keep KSPRC’s config for everything else. If you want to remove the sunflare, feel free to delete the folder Gamedata/scatterer/sunflare Atmospheric (clouds): that’s the most common thing ppl want to replace. You just have to remove the configs in the KSPRC-folder first. Namely it is: - KSPRC\Atmospheres - KSPRC\CityLights After cleaning those folders, you are free to copy the Folder StockVisualEnhancements over to your gamedata. It basically just providing other configs of what u just removed. Addon (KSP1.1.3+): the current KSPRC version comes with an incompatible Kopernicus version. You can fix this by going to the Kopernicus -thread and get the current version. For further updates, please first check all the named components for updates before asking why any of these compilations wont work Thanks ------------------------------------------------------------------------ And thats what u get: Thanks @Speadge for the how-to!
  5. Changing your color theme...

    I saw a post yesterday in which someone was experimenting with using a different color scheme on the forum... as in instead of all the headers being various shades of blue, they were changed to being different various colors. I'm curious as to if there is a way to customize your own personal forum color appearance that could be implemented? You could do something similar to this with your profile on the old forums but it only changed how your profile looked. It would be an interesting feature to have... I'd like to have a forum with the faded red color theme like I use in my avatar . Would anyone else want something like this?
  6. Astronomer's Visual Pack: Reborn A repackaging of Astronomer's Edge of Oblivion Visual Overhaul What is this? While I was surfing around on the YouTubes I saw a few videos where users were using the Edge of Oblivion pack, and I thought that it was absolutely beautiful. In Astronomer's (hopefully temporary) absence, I decided that I wanted to have a go at moving AVP over from the old EVE to the new version of EVE, while also making use of Scatterer. I guess this was because I wanted to bring the visuals up to a platform that is currently being updated, allowing further beatification to be possible that wasn't available when it was made. On top of this, a big reason I decided I wanted to do it was because of the EVE cloud resizing in Sigma's Dimensions mod. While it would work with many of the packs already out there on the new EVE, it wouldn't work with old EVE mods, hence my endeavor. Dev Album What do I get? Currently included Kerbin Cloud configs Kerbin Scatterer config Requirements: Environmental Visual Enhancements Scatterer A DISCLAIMER I am not an experienced modder/coder at all. I am simply using the equipment provided in EVE to put these clouds where I think they belong. I reserve the right to give up on this project entirely, or to develop it at my own pace, when I find the time. Chances are I will not be making it work with features such as CubeMapping, and if things don't work very well, I probably won't be able to fix them or troubleshoot any bugs experienced by you as users. USE AT YOUR OWN RISK. I wasn't originally planning to release this to other users, but I decided others may enjoy it. None of these textures are my own, but are owned and distributed by Astronomer under a license allowing others to "create and distribute derivative works", under the same or a compatible license, and so I shall release this under the same license, as found in the original download: The licensor permits other to create and distribute derivative works, but only under the same or a compatible license. The licensor permits others to copy, distribute, display, and perform the work for non-commercial purposes only. (If this is wrong, I'd appreciate some help from a mod in choosing the right license) Folder Archive All the old versions, the current 'official' version and the dev version https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B3KMolVXKZX_X19TcWpLRVk5SjQ
  7. Hey! This is something I've wanted for a long time. The photos will explain it better than I ever would be able to: --- I assume making these appear dynamically, checking each wing's geometry would be hard, so it's okay if it's a (very small or invisible) part you have to add manually. It'd be preferred if these appeared (or not) based on speed and atmospheric conditions, though!
  8. Something that annoys me when building remote controlled planes is that unless you use the spaceplane parts, your remote control unit has to be a grey, protruding disk. I don't want my planes to look like an anaconda swallowing a dustbin lid everytime i attempt a safe, pilotless test flight. Is there a possibility of adding a tweakable in the VAB/SPH that allows you to switch between the standard grey texture and a smooth, Porkjetalike finish? My OCD with aerodynamic shapes prompted me to post this.o_o Thanks for any thoughts.
  9. I freely admit I like a bit of eye candy. No matter how many mods I install, the frame rate won't go below 60fps even with my old GPU. So I'm looking to pimp it up some more. I wondered what other people are using. Here's my list: Environmental Visual Enhancements Endraxial's Planets and Moons KSP Real Skybox Astronomers Visual Pack Interstellar V2 Planetshine Distant Object Enhancement WindowShine CollisionFX Engine Lighting Scatterer (with waves disabled, too buggy so far)
