I agree. Some of us still run KSP on potatoes.

So here are the goals for the next update:

- Include visuals for the stock solar system so that using SVE is unnecessary

- Include various patches curtesy of @Barar

- Ensure Extrasolar works with OPM

Shouldn't take too long, really.

If you provide EVE configs for the stock planets, can you be sure to provide that as a separate package so that players can mix-and-match however they want? EVE allows multiple overlapping configs for the one planet, but usually it looks pretty bad if you do that (too many clouds, inconsistent city lights).

Yeah this is what I was planning on doing.

Just me again, was tweaking my setup. Did an install of Final Frontiers and noticed a few things of issue.

Ribbons issues.

Spoiler

 

Two copies of CelestialBodies in the location below. Both are Identical.
GameData\Extrasolar
GameData\Extrasolar\Ribbons\Deemo
I deleted the one in the Deemo folder.

Celestial Bodies Contain these bodies that dont exist.

Semth
{
   gas giant = false
   FinalFrontier
   {
     ribbon path  = Extrasolar/Ribbons
     ribbon group  = Semth
     base prestige = 5022
   }
}
Vedre
{
   gas giant = false
   FinalFrontier
   {
     ribbon path  = Extrasolar/Ribbons
     ribbon group  = Vedra
     base prestige = 5012
   }
}

Celestial Bodies missing are Kuprus and Pael


The Ribbons folder has Vedre and Semth. But does not contain any for Kuprus or Pael

I sorta Cheated and renamed Semth -> Kuprus, Vedra -> Pael

Kuprus
{
   gas giant = false
   FinalFrontier
   {
     ribbon path  = Extrasolar/Ribbons
     ribbon group  = Kuprus
     base prestige = 5022
   }
}

Pael
{
   gas giant = false
   FinalFrontier
   {
     ribbon path  = Extrasolar/Ribbons
     ribbon group  = Pael
     base prestige = 5012
   }
}
Then did the same with the folders in GameData\Extrasolar\Ribbons.

Errors from Logfile, shortened to fit.

FF: cannot find image file 'GameData\Extrasolar/Ribbons/Javine/DeepAtmosphere.png'
FF: cannot find image file 'GameData\Extrasolar/Ribbons/Lomina/DeepAtmosphere.png'
FF: cannot find image file 'GameData\Extrasolar/Ribbons/Valentine/DeepAtmosphere.png'
FF: cannot find image file 'GameData\Extrasolar/Ribbons/Fust/Atmosphere.png'

I do get these errors, there is a "Deep Atmosphere.png" in each of these folders, so I removed the space and they now load fine for me.

The Fust one, I will just need to copy another one and tweak it to look similar.

 

 

 

I did have an issue with another part of the planet configs that took sometime for me to sort out. But at the end of it, I found the issue and this would fix it.

Spoiler

 

I would recommend adding this to all your planet configs. Not all of it, just the cacheFile = Extrasolar/Cache/Fust.bin  with the appropriate planet name. I was just giving an example to refer too. You would all need to place a Cache folder but I think it gets auto-generated if not.

    Body
    {
        name = Fust
        
        cacheFile = Extrasolar/Cache/Fust.bin        
        
        Template
        {
            name = Laythe
            removeAllPQSMods = True

That way, when someone has the crazy idea to uninstall Extrasolar. It will take the .bin files Cache with it, instead of being left in GameData/Kopernicus/Cache by default. Which may cause issues and leave stray files from an install.

Someone else had actually created the Final Frontier stuff for me, and I assumed that there weren't any issues with it (he tested it several times and it worked). Looks like both him and I missed that extra celestialbodies file. It included bodies that don't exist because it was made back when Semth and Vedre were in Extrasolar. They no longer are. As for the cache file thing, that was something I've been planning on doing that I never got around to. Thanks for reminding me.

Yeah, the pictures above basically explains the issue. And by the way, scatterer and sunflare is working fine in the stock system, and no, nothing is installed from CKAN.

Read back a few pages. @Barar provided a temporary fix so that SVE works with Extrasolar.

No worries, I hope the next update will have a lot of the changes. Just wanted to stamp out any issues as I see them and help.
