No that's definitely photoshop I'm talking about.. I'm a graphic/web designer irl and I teach Adobe CC programs as an assistant at the Art Institute of Austin, so I know my way around PS.. Gimp is a terrible program in comparison to PS and I don't recommend it but it's ok for those who can't afford creative cloud and basic image manipulation I suppose..

Cool! I teached myself photoshop because they wont teach it at school ( although graphic design is important for architecture). And just found the filter on photoshop! Thx :P

Yeah the polar coordinates thing is in both GIMP and photoshop, and they are under similar menus.

At least GIMP is not as bad as paint.net :D. I use photoshop occasionally, as some of the computers at my high school have it installed, and it is definitely much better than GIMP. However, for my purposes, GIMP serves me just fine. Once you use photoshop for a while, I'm assuming its impossible to use GIMP.

Don't even get me started on paint.net...lol

I just installed the EVE and Scatterer files when I noticed something with Moho (it's just Moho). It has an 'atmosphere' far above the surface and is moving very quikly. I tried looking into the files, but couldn't find anything.

That's normal. It is the interaction between Moho's magnetosphere and the solarwind. But I thought I removed it from the visuals haha :p

Alright. I understand the intention, but I also find it quite odd, so in case I want to remove it, which file(s) do I need to edit/remove?

Sidenote: EVE + Scatterer looks beautiful and it made me love this pack even more! Thumbs up to you and the authors of EVE and Scatterer! :wink:

Thanks! I'll do it as soon as possible.

Does the glow effect actually make an all-encompassing haze when you're in it or does it fade on approach?

I thought it turns invisible while in the haze.

Love this mod, it's stunning, you're an Artist!
Thank you.

Anyway, i'm triyng to implement it with Sigma, to rescale all the stellar system to 10X scale (i'm a masochist, i know) but they don't want to work together, i don't know why.
The game froze during the loading of the Savegame.

I discover, that if i delete the RemoveStockPlanets.cfg in the KopernicusFiles, it works, but with the vanilla planets orbiting around the Creator..Jeb is a bit disappointed.

Can you help me to make it work? it will be a mastodontic implementation to this great, little universe!!

My screenshots album with Kerbol StarSystem [0.5].RNiC7on.jpg

 

Absolutely beautiful. If you looked at some of those images from a good enough distance, you wouldn't be able to differentiate between them a an actual picture in real life!

I will never be able to make Constellations or Extrasolar look that amazing :D. Good on you @StarCrusher96 and all who have contributed to this mod.

StarCrusher, is it possible to provide me with a EVE config which only provides the gas giant lightning effect and nothing else? I love the effect yet my computer cant handle the stress of clouds.

Also, my craft explode due to overheating on Kerbin or anywhere for that matter...

Just go to BoulderCo/Clouds and delete everything except for the lightning.cfg.

PM me plz about this overheating issue.

I can't wait to start my youtube series :D hopefully when this is 1.0 Mother will also be released, so I don't have to install ALL those mods from Near

@StarCrusher96 hey, the visuals, are they call HD? I know most visual mods now offer low, medium and high, but does this one just have high?

I'd say between medium and high.

It's a bit consuming, my pc with 8GB ram has trouble running it, it works and moves smoothly sometimes, but overall it pushes my pc to the edge. A low quality version for the visuals would be good for many

Well 8 gigs still isn't very much ram and I'm sure this mod will probably crash your game eventually once the ram usage hits 8 gigs, and it will with the amount of bodies in the mod and dependencies included with it. What's causing lag for you though is your GPU. EVE and scatterer rely heavily on the GPU. No amount of ram can help you with those 2 mods. You will need a new  GPU to run this mod or any other planet pack with Scatterer and EVE smoothly.

I've had this recurring problem when I reload a save the orbits of my craft become skewed. Do you have any idea what's causing this?

Wait what ? I can install both mods without problems ? (at this rythm, I'll need a bay of calculator to run my KSP)
