[1.2.2] Ktolemy - Transforming the solar system to avoid the spanish inquisition since 2015

Recommended Posts

At first i was planning to make a mod that added interstellar travel, But the spanish inquisition stopped me and made me make this mod.

Thanks to Thesonicgalaxy for his screenshot album.

Ktolemy is the first and only mod in ksp that puts the whole solar system around kerbin, Tightly packing them together so as to make easy transit as if jool was a moon.

Interesting and novel idea. Screenshots and a heliocentric diagram would help to get buy-in and download clicks I suspect.

Peace.

I love the whole Spanish inquisition thing... in relation to this mod anyway. I have no love for inquisitionals... even Spanish ones.

No equants, no clicks.

(Kidding of course. Neat idea.)

This is deliciously perverse.

I'm somewhat afraid to ask what the SOI's look like in this surreal system.

Thanks, Im really proud of the fact that i compressed the whole thing into a 1.5kb cfg file (It wasn't hard so i really don't know why.)

Looks interesting. What does it look like ingame?

I unfortunately dont have any pictures, But this old video might help get the idea across.

(HINT: I spaced the planets a little better, So dont worry about colliding, I think.)

Here's an album I made for your OP. Really funny mod man. I actually want see how tricky it would be to get to jool without getting in the SOI of another planet.

You get rep just for creating the condition that Ktolemy requires Kopernicus. We’re not worthy!

heh.. this is pretty fun and amusing, had to give it a go. :)

Great fun Daniel.l !

I was kinda scared on the first launch my ship would burn up immediatly existing the atmo (due to the sun being so close) but that doesnt look like the case. :)

I just realized that the simplest mod i ever made, A mere few kilobytes in size has gotten more love by the ksp community than all my previous mods, I thank you all :)
