Hey Guys!

Did a little work on the Kersex atmosphere, and gave it a unique sunset.

This mod looks great, but I saw a spelling error in the science def :

KersexFlyingHighHenge = The crew confirms the existance of a mysterious ringed geological feature while flying high over Kersex.

Existance? Doesn't you mean "existence"?

Fixed for next release... :D

Planetshine compatibility patches are next on the agenda, as well as a possible Eahpeh Makeover.

Hello 123nick

I haven't wrote a New Horizons compatibility patch for Kronkus (yet). It might work "as is", but I'll add one in for the next release.

Asclepius works great with NH! It has a patch that puts Asclepius on a co-orbital configuration with Laythe.

Thanks for the input :)

Very nice looking planet pack..... couldn't stop laughing when I made the connections between sketti and the actual surface. Anyway, Asclepius was a very good quality pack, looking forward to this!

The Kronkus system

http://imgur.com/a/3H3BD

Includes:

1 GAS GIANT

Kronkus: Huge purple ringed gas giant orbiting between Dres and Jool

4 MOONS

Sketti: Closest Kronkian moon. A ball of noodles stretching Roche limits!

Meelo: The middle moon. Orbits the outside of the the rings of Kronkus. It's monotone colors are home to the most "sensible" moon in the Kronkus system.

Kersex: It's the "Almost Kerbin" home away from home. Much fun to be had here!

Eahpeh: The pecular ice moon of Kersex.

The fjords are quite satisfactory I must say!

I've added a New Horizons patch, and tamed the atmospheric heating down for Kronkus, and Kersex. :cool:

Update 9-26-15

Changes (Kronkus v0.8)

  • Atmospheric heating curve cooled off a bit for Kersex and Kronkus, you now have a chance to aerobrake before burning up.
  • Added New Horizons compatibility patch (Places Kronkus on a co-orbital configuration ~180 degrees opposite of Sonnah)

(D/L link in OP updated)

Feedback is encouraged. Especially Screenshots! (And this planet pack needs a decent video too)

Enjoy

hi mr chumley,

I couldn't make Kronkus load (downloading it from Kerballstuff)

I think the issue is that in your archive you have the folder Kronkus nested inside another folder called Kronkus as well

b1QnQq6.png

moving the second "Kronkus" folder into GameData solved the problem

Also, the github download is still version 0.7 (at least the name is)

This had to have costed me a lot of grief. Any clue when you might get to merging the two back-to-back Kronkus folders inside of GameData?

o.O

Hello Sigma, and Yagi!

Thanks for bringing this to my attention. I apologize for causing grief :(

The directory structure on the Kronkus Kerbalstuff Download has been fixed.

Please let me know if you find any other issues, and I'll get them fixed ASAP.

The Github Download should be up to date now as well.

Sorry I didn't notice this earlier. I could make a video if you'd like. :D

That'd be super awesome! :)

Cool! I'll make a vid then. It'll have to wait for a while though, I'm afraid, since I'm also filming for the 'Outer Planets Mod', 'KerbolPlus' and 'Planet Arkas'.

Does this work alongside Outer Planets?

Yes. Kronkus' orbit is closer than Jool's so it isn't out as far as any of the Outer Planets. You might need the latest Kopernicus though. I distribute Kopernicus 0.3.1 with Kronkus and Asclepius because they run the best in my experience.

Thanks for your reply. These are hands down the most beautiful and creative planets I have seen for KSP.

Update 10-9-15

Kronkus v1.0

-FPS issues fixed! (for real this time!)

-Reworked Oceans on Kersex

-Updated bundled Kopernicus to v0.4-beta

-Added descriptions

-Small change to New Horizons compatibility patch for Galactic neighborhood compatibility.

(D/L links in OP)

Enjoy :D

I can't download it from ckan because it thinks it conflicts with Kopernicus.

It usually takes a bit for all the CKAN files to get up to date. The gears are in motion.

Hey guys!

I've written a ResearchBodies compatibility config file for the Kronkus system. It will be added in on the next release.

In the meantime, here is a Dropbox Link to KronkRsBdys.cfg if you want to add it manually.

It causes Kronkus to be researched/tracked at the beginning of the game on easy, and normal modes, and Kersex only on Easy.

If anyone has any suggestions to make Kronkus more compatible with other mods, or any other suggestions please let me know. :D

Also- Can anyone confirm that the CKAN issue worked itself out? Or does it require some intervention on my part?
