How to make planets with KopernicusTech

Recommended Posts

I'm still stuck with it not using my heightmaps and resorting to Laythe at 60km can someone make sure I'm not missing anything because I've went through, written by hand, pasted different versions, and finally went back to the code in OP and I cannot for the life of me get it to use my files.

Well I figured out the problem is not Venus- it is the star. For some reason, I cannot make anymore planets in the Sonne System. The Star, Sonne, will not let any more planets there except for Mercury.

Why is there a red ring (atmosphere?) around gas giants? I tried to make it other colors but I cannot find anything... Anybody know how to solve this?

Hi! I followed this tutoriel to create my own planet, but I'm stuck at step 7. It is said that I have to open the Kittopia GUI with Ctrl P. Once there, I have to select my planet in "Planet selection". But it is not there :huh: I can select all the stock planets (Kerbin, Moho etc) but my planet does not appear in the list. Could someone help me please?

( I'm sorry if my english isn't perfect, I'm french :D)

When I try to load my game, my gas giant doesn't show up :(. It just gives me this error message:

[Exception]: MissingFieldException: Field '.CelestialBody.maxAtmosphereAltitude' not found.

Here is my KopernicusTech File:

altitudeMultiplier = 3 //how quickly the atmosphere becomes thinner. Higher numbers mean upper atmosphere is thicker
atmoshpereTemperatureMultiplier = 22 //not sure if this has any game effect. May overheat craft in the lower atmosphere
atmosphereMultiplier = 22 //same as pressure multiplier
maxAtmosphereAltitude = 150000 //what it shows in map info as the max altitude
atmosphereScaleHeight = 10 //what actually determines max atmosphere altitude. Higher numbers mean atmosphere is taller
}
}

Does anyone mind tellling me what is wrong?

I have downloaded SpaceEngine (it's awesome btw), but if I export a gas giant, i only get a black and white map, without any colors.

EDIT:

I exported the clouds layer, not the surface layer

Problem is solved

And if i use the debug screen no planet shows up, not even the stock ones

EDIT:

I have uninstalled all my mods and now it works.

I made a gas planet, but It doesn't show up, even in the KittopiaSpace menu, what am I doing wrong?

Must I use the older Kopernicus? I have another Kopernicus mod installed (KerbolPlus) and I am wondering if it would be compatible.

hi ! :)

I followed the instructions and nothing works, the game just does not load my planet and I not in space .... what to do? please !!!

Does this still work with Kopernicus 0.07?

-EDIT nevr mind I thought it was kopernicus.

Version 1.0 uses a new atmospheric format. If you are on 1.0, use Kopernicus 0.09 instead.

Also, Try putting @Kopernicus at the top of your code if you haven't already done that

I have created 2 planets, a gas giant named Haswell, and a smaller, mars-like moon called Nehalem. Nehalem always shows up orbiting Haswell, but at a negative altitude, inside the planet. I will post my .cfg files for both planets in Kopernicus and Kittopia. Also for some reason when I zoom in on Haswell, there is this strange green ring around it.

I have 3 gas giants. 2 that are similar sizes to jool, and when i zoom very close to them in the map view and shake the camera, I see a green ring around the planet, even though I have set all colors of the planet to blue. Then I have a very large gas giant, more than double the radius of Jool, and when I zoom very close to it in the map view and shake the camera i see a red ring, even though all the colors are set to blue. I would really like this fixed as I do not like the planets being colors that I did not intend them to be.

I have created a gas giant called krypton it's just a test that i am not going to release it to public but the planet doesn't show up on the map oh and i get an error missing maxAtmosphereAltitude in the debug menu

this is my Code :

this is for Kopernicus

THIS IS KSP 1.0.2

the Atmosphere Planet model doesn't really work with 1.0.2. Try normal Kopernicus, it may help.

Hey would anyone know how to tweak the rotational period??

Yes, you type this in the Properties tab in the code:


rotates = true
tidallyLocked = false
rotationPeriod = 86400

For rotationPeriod, type a number which sets the rotation (it is in seconds)

I have 3 gas giants. 2 that are similar sizes to jool, and when i zoom very close to them in the map view and shake the camera, I see a green ring around the planet, even though I have set all colors of the planet to blue. Then I have a very large gas giant, more than double the radius of Jool, and when I zoom very close to it in the map view and shake the camera i see a red ring, even though all the colors are set to blue. I would really like this fixed as I do not like the planets being colors that I did not intend them to be.

Atmosphere color is inverted (for some crazy reason) and if you want a blue atmosphere you type this code:

lightColor = 0.666,0.666,0.333,1

and for a red atmosphere, type this:

lightColor = 0.333,0.666,0.666,1

These are both examples, but they work fine. I think.

You can just change atmosphere in-game with Kittopia, anyways.
