[23:24] <barie> looks liek a space-bug :P

[23:24] <ddavis425> Picture of a new moon

[23:25] <DYJ> looks like the same planet as the last pic

[23:25] <ddavis425> It is, but look at the moon

[23:25] <ddavis425> Also, the lander has a new part on the bottom I think

[23:25] <r4m0n> you assume it is a moon

[23:25] <barie> do the outward pointing engines help with landing?

[23:26] <DYJ> nope, but I guess Nova realised the large lander engine is terrible :P

[23:26] <ddavis425> lol

[23:26] <barie> xD

[23:26] <r4m0n> is he using 2 pods?

[23:26] <ddavis425> ?

Nova likes to confuse us all ;P

When could an official planet creator be implemented? It looks very fun to mess with 8). I\'m loving the teasers, keep \'em coming!

I lied, here\'s one more of me landed on a precariously steep slope (I almost fell over):

Nice ... ! Looks like the desert planet has a giant moon, or its very close.

It looks a little too red.

I agree, although patchy surface colour variation from the red shown there to something like this

mars-surface.jpg

would be a good idea. I doubt any planet\'s uniform in colour on every spot on its surface.

A giant and close moon. :D Nova said the planet and moon are tidally locked in an old post IIRC. That should make traveling between the two easy at least.

I\'m still in the polishing phase, right now, so it will probably change.

Wear red glasses? :P

I like the bright red.. Fits the Cartoon style of the game..

What a beautiful place to crash into...

Nova, Des looks marvelous, the moon sells it. Reminds me of the Sahara. I like the deep red, makes it look mysterious and untamed.

Now that you mention it the deep redness works well for kerbal. Is that moon permanent or are two small satellites gonna be added to resemble the mars system?

Ah, got it: the presented pics are probably taken from the Mars-equivalent; red surface, thin atmosphere, and indeed the extremely large and tidally locked moon nearby ... !

I\'d say slightly larger, and closer.

wow! especially as this red planet seems smaller that kerbin, that moon\'s going to seem huge! Awesome!

Here\'s an updated color:

Bit more mars-like, but still vibrant.

Nice. I want to ask you two questions; 1) Will we ever get the RCS part from the C7 Aerospace Pack for orbital spaceplanes? 2) Will we get an RCS tank with .17 for the 3-manned CM?

How you are going to handle Gas giants? The interior is a problem... Also, will you add a 'pressure' Element? Like, fuel tank - 'pressure resistance: 100 pressure' and implement it to atmospheres?

The extra red gave it more personality imo :(

And to something else entirely different: are we getting clouds any time soon? (hopefully volumetric)

I was under the impression that a terrain engine overhaul was necessary for gas giants... Unless they\'ve found a workaround of some kind. Or actually overhauled the terrain engine. Who knows?

Also, that new red looks awesome, much more desolate than before, I say. I\'m thinking, if this is what\'s happening just after the announcement of 0.17, what can we expect in future? Great things, that\'s what! Keep up the awesome work!

In the previous pictures, the lander has a RCS tank for the 3 man one. At least, it looks like it could be that as it seems like a new piece, and the staging at the side contains an RCS fuel tank.

I\'d say something in between this one and the extreme red might look good (I kinda liked the red one, though it is a bit too red at the same time =P).

I am liking the more red too, add a menacing feel to it. good on you dev guys showing us this stuff too.
