Kerbal Binary devthread

Recommended Posts

Not to be confused with Sigma Binary.

Kerbal Binary is a mod similar to Kerbal Galaxy 2, but there doesn't have to be just 1 mod with the star-systems-around-a-black-hole feature, right?

It differs because the stars are all farther apart. For example, the closest star (carbonia) is farther away than Flo's apoapsis in Trans-Keptunian.

This leads to long voyages (And gives a meaning for FTL mods)

It currently has 10 other star systems.

I know, no pics no clicks, so:

Anyone's welcome to help.

ISSUES:

Tron is red for some reason even though in the config it is white

No solar power curves, bring RTGs (except for Kerbol)

0.0.2 update:

More stars (planets next update-I promise!)

0.0.1 update:

Interesting! I like the enhanced, more orange Kerbol.

But how big is Kerbol's SOI? Is it big enough to allow installing Outer Planets Mod?

160,392,941 km SOI size.

You can increase/decrease the SOI size at any time.

The black hole is 10,000 Sol masses.

Edit: The download will be up soon, just gotta get it reviewed on Curse

You embed imgur albums like this BTW. Put brackets where the dots are:

If the red dwarf Juno is going to have an ocean world around it, is the system based off of Gliese 1214 and its planet?

I also have some planet suggestions for specific stars. The red giant Alexis could have a planet based off of the recently discovered Aldebaran b, a gas giant heated up by its star's death. The sun-like star you added could have a Kerbin-like planet based off of Kepler-452b (I live there :sticktongue:). I even named 452b after the Greek god Aristaios, so if you do make a 452b-like planet, can you name it that? Edited by ProtoJeb21

Sorry I've been so inactive. I forgot my password but then 2 months later I remembered it and logged on.

Yes, I was planning on adding a Gliese 1214-like system around Juno, and there was a planet around it called Aquamarine. I think I could name the heated to death planet Aristaios, but its name was Calypso, but Aristaios sounds way better.

I'm completely rewriting the mod for 1.1 and up, because apparently my style of updating does not work.

Will all other planet packs support this? Do the planets packs designed to orbit Kerbol still orbit Kerbol or the black hole?

This is now outdated. MAYBE i can help you to update to 1.1.2 and 1.2, and bugfixing :D.

Could you move Juno or add another red dwarf to the system?

If you could, put the star the most near possible of the Kerbol system and make a Kerbin-like but in a desert fashion planet around it based on Proxima Centauri b. It would be nice to have an habitable planet near Kerbol and be the Kerbal "pale red dot" :wink:

Just an idea.:P
