[1.2.1]Arkas: Development Edition

Recommended Posts

I apologize for necroing this thread, but does this still work on the newest updates? Like 1.7? I used to always play with this mod back in the day, and want to add it in, but I'm afraid it might corrupt something. Thanks in advance.

Make a copy of your KSP install and strip out the weights of any unneeded mods and keep that install for testing. Throw Arkas in it and find out and share the results. I'm very confident it will work just fine but the visual bundle will break. I know this from testing Arkas, Cyran and Cerillion (all of these are The White Guardian's mods) in KSP 1.4. On top of simply turning to garbage (the EVE and scatterer effects), Scatterer 0.05x breaks configs for all versions before this.

That's all I need. If it doesn't work with visual mods I can't bring myself to install it. I wish this got an update, I miss it.

Arkas needs a major overhaul anyway. Much of the surface is just a noisy and bumpy mess, which doesn't look like what is predented in the Lower detail scaledspace.

I wish, but seeing how the last update was for 1.2.1, and that The White Guardian only took it on in the absence of the OG dev, I find it unlikely it will get an update.

@Hotdiggitydog I understand your excitment :)
however, please dont start pestering. ;) If TWG wanted to give any moar details only 18hrs after posting his "clue", i'm sure he would have by now.
Also, its usually good forum ettiqutte to *NOT* quote a whole post, and especially one that is right before, or not far above yours...
An @ tag for TWG would have been sufficient, rather than just hitting the *Quote* button ;) ....and I'm not singling you out, I've noticed TONS of people doing this recently... >:(

@Stone Blue Sorry, I'm rather new to this forum, still learning. Thank you for actually being polite and helpful, unlike others on the KSP forum that just like to put new people down.:)

@Hotdiggitydog TWG did say a bit more about his plans on the Kopernicus discord. 
If you have a discord account, you may find some occasional (but still rather rare) info there.
Btw, Iirc TWG is doing a lot of work on INSTANTIATOR at the moment.

I'm talking weeks. Don't worry. ;)

@Stone Blue actually, the reasons as to why I didn't go more in-depth is because I'm still not entirely certain what the update will entail. I'm mostly brainstorming currently. Rest assured though that I've gotten some ideas for breathtaking moons that I'll be creating soon, besides an overhaul for Arkas of course. Another reason for my silence is because I was en route for a week long holiday and thus had no internet access for just over a day.

Lastly, a good friend of mine introduced me to a writing technique called 'show, don't tell', which I'll be adopting in teases going forward. As such I'm not going to spill the beans on what I have planned justt, but will instead be dropping hints and pictures approaching release.

Though, as @GrandProtectorDark mentioned, my primary focus is KS3P shortly followed by INSTANTIATOR. After all, primarily the latter will allow me to create some amazing new features, so it's probably best for me to finish those first so I can futher spice up any planet packs I'm working on or maintaining.

@The White Guardian Yup... I kno.. i lurk the Kop Discord as KineticSloth ;)

Yeah... I have since learned not finishing many projects I've started, that "show, dont tell", is prolly a good strategy :P

And yeah, Instantiator recently peaked my interest...
