Shots Fired? I doubt that Amarius1 will be happy with this... Anyway, this looks awesome, is it compatible with Uncharted Lands?

A dream come true great work KA and Thomas P! Now how am I going to decide between new horizons, Uncharted and this with OPM for my next career? You aren't making this easy :P

not really shots fired. He has been warned about his atitude towards other people multiple times. Anyway at the moment I'm not sure if it us compatible with UL, as UL is in such an early stage atm, it should run together fine, however I don't know if orbital lines will cross, etc.

In the future I'll probably have a patch that will reorganize these worlds into the UL system as I do with New Horizons.

Why are all the names changed?

Also Sarvin should really be changed back, sarin is a chemical weapon you know.

For compatibility issues

Sarin is gas, that is used as a weapon. It is not a weapon on itself.

Guys this thread is not about any other user or their mod, it's about KA and his completed version of Nova's plans for the solar system, so let's avoid personal remarks and stay on topic :). Don't forget to update that sig KA ;)

All names of this mod are derivations of Kerbol Plus.

Except that the Keelon System wasn't added

The cryovulcano will come back, as we're experiementing with a custom plugin to create a vulcano right now.

Yeah cool... GOD DAMN IT I HAVE NO WAY TO MAKE Kerbol Origins as better as this when you are creating custom PQS mods... If you could why didn't you add the volcano plugin before?

Also what is SmoothMountains plugin used for? I supose it's hardcoded, right?

So it is possivel to add normal maps to a gas giant? TIL.

The things is that I don't use a normal map and I get the same effect...

i was referring to the "bumpy" effect of gas giants. This is due to the Jool's normal map, gas giants using a Jool template will get this normal map if a new one isn't specified. It's pretty low-res, but gives a nice effect to the world from a perpetually flat sphere. This is most likely the "effect" you are talking about. if you don't want it then create your own normal map to overwrite the builtin one

Well, thank you. Didn't even knew you could add normals to a gas giant... Welp now Kerbol Origins will have some more eye-candy...

BTW what planet uses flatten mountains?

I know I know. I just wanted to look into how would mine look like. Altrough I should stay with messing with existing PQS mods. BTW ashley in Kerbol Origins we have most of the planets procedural... Than you for releasing this actualy, as it is a great example of how to use heighColorMap and how to make a simple heightmap based planet.

BTW is it possible, with current PQS mods, to create canyons on planets?
