A question regarding recolouring ugly old Minmus with Kopernicus.

Recommended Posts

Dear fellow Kerbonauts, Kerbaneers and Kerbaniacs,

 

I have a question: is it difficult to give Minmus a different colour with Kopernicus? I like the little moon's low gravity, but I avoid it like the plague, because I can't stand looking at that ugly mint green colour. I've sworn never to set foot upon a space rock that has a weird colour. It really ruins the experience for me. So can somebody please show me a tutorial on how to edit existing bodies. Is it just a matter of a altering a few lines of code or would I have to write pieces of text as long as the Dead Sea Scrolls? Or would there be a hero, with sufficent experience in planet altering magick, who would take up this daunting task to help this poor chap out? xD I have less than 0% experience and know how in these kinds of matters. :P In that case I would be forever grateful and will name my firstborn after you.

Something else: I downloaded the mods that give Jool and Eve a different colour a while back. Absolutely love them. But is it possible to remove the ''water'' on Eve?

 

Cheerio.

What kind of color do you prefer?

Brownis gray or like a little Duna or something like that. I don't really care as long as it looks more realistic. :) Maybe like this?XlBhUZa.jpg

Maybe you should have a look at https://github.com/kopernicus/kopernicusexamples.

For example, there is Hodor example with lines:
        ScaledVersion
        {
            Material
            {
                texture = KopernicusExamples/Creating New Bodies/ProceduralBody/PluginData/Hodor_color.dds
                normals = KopernicusExamples/Creating New Bodies/ProceduralBody/PluginData/Hodor_normal.dds
            }
        } 

Maybe you should try to redefine this for Minmus or create a Minmus clone and hide the original one?

You could install SVT and just recolor Minimus texture.

@GregroxMun Didn't you do a different coloured Minmus in Alternis Kerbol Reloaded Rekerjiggered?

Yep, NovaS made it red in the original, and I make it red by the same method but with Kopernicus. In Revamped Stock System I also give it a dirty green texture as opposed to pristine light green.

BTW, keep in mind that, (if you scale the system up by 10x) Minmus would be big enough to be a dwarf planet. @NovaSilisko claims Minmus is a big captured comet.

While I don't remove the unique colors from Duna, Eve and Jool for RevSSS, I do tone them down a bit. I also make Ike more interesting in its heightmap. If you want a more normal colored Eve and Jool, then check out Sigma88's JoolRecolor and EveRecolor.

If you want a darker, rockier, clayier Minmus then I can prepare one for you in a few minutes.

Note that this won't change the science definitions, so the Kerbals will think it's Mint instead of Chocolate. But it is dark brown now.

Holy poopsnacks! I love it! THANK YOU! THANK YOU SO MUCH! I already have the Sigma recollor mods. Really like them. I think it's time for me to learn to use this planet altering magick. Those oceans on Eve are going down...

Been testing the new and improved Minmus out. I absolutely love it. I can finally set foot on Minmus again and enjoy it. Again, thank you!1iK8VJ9.png

Mint chocolate - even better!

@GregroxMun Is there a tutorial somewhere to explain how you quickly made this neat change? I'm thinking Dres could profit from a facelift.

Kopernicus Examples on GitHub.

 

But note that all you can do with this method is give Dres a different color scheme. I really doubt that giving Dres a browner color is going to fix its issues, and further I don't even think Dres looks that bad.
