[1.2x] Outer Planets Mod Plus - Version 1.0

Recommended Posts

So a lot of us really love the planet pack Outer Planets Mod. But I felt like there were some holes. So I began to fill them.

Introducing the Outer Planets Mod Plus pack!

Overview

Outer Planets Mod Plus currently adds one moon, Thump, orbiting Sarnus. Here's some info:

Spoiler

Radius - 162 KM

Surface Gravity - 0.74 G

Semi Major Axis - 292065 KM

Orbital Inclination - 15

I created Thump to be a sort of Iapetus analog. OPM's Wal does have the equatorial ridge, but it overall didn't have the same feel as a proper Iapetus analog to me. Thump is inspired by both Saturn's moons Rhea and Iapetus (colors, craters, mountains), along with PlanetFactory's Thud (high gravity, large crater). The Sarnus-facing side of Thump is smooth (albeit cratery), and the other is jagged, full of ridges and canyons. Thump is even more of a pain to explore than Tylo despite it's small size!

Required Mods

Outer Planets Mod Plus, of course, requires both Kopernicus and OPM.

I like the idea of this! It's quite light at the moment, but I would love to see it include more moons, as well as dwarf planets.

Maybe even Planet Nine?

The Revamped Stock System mod adds a Makemake analog, and GregroxMun's Planet 9 is better than anything I can make. I'm definitely doing an Eris analog.

May i make some suggestions, feel free to disregard! 

Sedna analogue, Haumea analogue, possibly a Nix/Hydra analogue (move gilly?)

can you imagine how long a mission to a sedna analogue would take :confused:

Thanks for taking time to read my post!
