Currently working on compatibility for research bodies. In the future should i add compatibility for other planet packs by giving them their own system in the mod?

I have added some stock asteriod generation around new planets and ive started work on contracts. Should i make this compatible with other planet packs by giving them their own system?

The main part of version 0.2 is going to be the indroduction of custom contracts (THESE WILL NOT BE COMPLETE FOR 0.2). Between then and now i will release updates that will alter  planets from the initial release and add some mod compatibility. EVE clouds MAY be added during this time.

A complete overhaul of Verna is almost finished. For the next release it will be almost unrecognisable!!!

I hope that's in a good way :P

 

 

 

Trust me my planets were horrible at the start of my own mod (I'm looking at you, Niebos), I can't wait to see the new texture.

Want me to do anything to help with compatability?

That would be great!

I'm not going to add the compatibility though until I'm happy with the planets I've already added

Part of the next update is replacing Zurbo-A's corona. I have tried but I cant make a corona that looks good. If there is anyone who would like to help with some texture work for this mod (mainly star coronas) please send me a PM

Little bit of lore for Furmals new look! 

Furmal is made of the same rock as Minmus, maybe this is where Minmus formed!!!
