[1.1.2] Dres Plus (v0.1.1)

Recommended Posts

For decades Kerbals have ignored Dres and never went there. Because of this, the Kerbals didn't know much about Dres. All of this changed when The Dres Awareness Society sent a probe there and discovered Dres' secrets. Almost everything the Kerbal Astronomical society though they knew about Dres was wrong.

- Dres Awareness Society

 

Welcome to the Dres Plus mod. This mod aims to make Dres more exciting and fun. 

Features:

  • Re-sizes Dres to be 950 km in radius instead of previous 138 km.
  • Dres has rings! (They need some work though)
  • Dres' orbit is more circular and less inclined to make it more like a planet.
  • Surface gravity of Dres is now 2.1g
  • Dres spins very fast now, with a rotational period of around a half an hour. (This makes landings easier than you would think)
  • Dres has three moons.
  • Opaki is the largest moon of Dres
    • It almost entirely covered in a deep blue ocean, except for the poles, which have some land.
    • It has a thick oxygen atmosphere which extends to 40 km.
    • It is about half the size of Kerbin with a gravity of 0.4g.
  • Okuv is the next moon.
    • It is white and brown which makes it look like a snowball that was dropped in mud.
    • It orbits Dres in such a way that it looks like it actually orbits Opaki in a very elliptical and inclined fashion.
    • In terms of landing, it is somewhere in between the Mun and Minmus, as it has a radius of about 100 km.
  • Ast. DIR-284 (also known as Fonzo) is a small moon in the asteroid belt.
    • It is dull and grey like the other asteroids.
    • It is a bit bigger than Gilly with a radius of 19 km, which makes it a Class-V Asteroid. (Yes, I did the math)

At the time that I am writing this, my profile picture is a sunset from Opaki.

Note : This mod requires Koperncius

Another Note: This mod is very much a work-in-progress.

Now on to the important stuff.

All hail Dres! It is finally the mod all Dres lovers have been waiting for!

I was also going to to a Dres Plus mod, but this one seems better:)

It has come to my attention that things ya know, don't work, so I fixed the things that didn't work.

Does Dres' new SOI remain clear of Jool's at closest approach?

Yes, they are still very far from each other.

Does this mod have a contract system and its own biomes for science?

The contract system works automatically if I'm not mistaken, and only Okuv does not have custom biomes.  (Opaki's need some refining though)

Man, just when I've sent my probe to Dres, someone makes it more awesome. I may have to wait until I start a new game for this, but I love this mod idea.

This looks very cool :)

Quick question, if I have a probe landed on Dres and one orbiting Dres already before I install this mod, will they still be there after I install it?

I don't one that's landed will disappear, but if the one that is orbiting is closer than about 820 km, then it will be orbiting underground.

I assume that the textures will be improved, as they look really sloppy at the time. Still a great piece, thanks for helping out Dres!

I cant believe that @max_creative hasn't commented on this yet. So, I will summon him 11 words ago.

Well, I couldn't at the time. Then i forgot. I did follow it only 6 minutes after it was posted though.

Doesn't changing Dres to be different kind of make it not Dres? What's the point of making Dres feel loved if it's just going to be fake? Dres should just be itself, and his loyal fans should love it for who it is.

I feel like the rings should be thin and equatorial instead, to be as if Dres is very slowly spinning apart.

That's a good idea, I think I will implement that on the next update.

Surface gravity of Dres is now 2.1g

 

Oof, guess surface trips are going to be one-way...

I love planet packs, especially expansion planet packs ('plus').  I am going to check this out on a new save soon.  I do, however, have a similar sentiment as @GregroxMun.  I like the idea of adding moons or even a ring to it, but changing the size/mass and orbit I am still on the fence about.
