Yep. Like 10 minutes after I posted here. Now the waiting game for scatterer.

That always happens. After updating the game, almost always some problems with mods :(

I don't know if it's from your mod (I think it is) but the loading screen "Docking at 68 RPM" I've seen today for the first time really made me smile :)

Glad to hear it ;) I personally love when I catch little references to other media in movies and games!

- Does it work with 1.8?

- This is no time for caution!

@themaster401 good day, I really really like the dust storms on duna in this mod pack, but the mod is fairly intensive for my laptop, is there a remote possibility of there being a small, lite version of this mod, for users like myself?

The only things ng that won't work from this mod would be the terrain textures which require Kopernicus, which isn't updated for 1.8 yet.

everyones waiting only for Kopernicus at this point :D  EVE & Scatterer already updated

Im really looking forward for a fresh 1.8 release at some point, maybe with the performance updates from SQUAD I can finally use the 43k kerbin clouds ^^

Try using your tools to map the land from space.  Add the beginning and end of a land mass by marking it as you orbit, and then you have a place to shoot for during reentry.  No real need to see through clouds.

The point is, you need to use your technology as a workaround to visually seeing it.

Edit:  I should point out that I usually use a resource scanner to do this and you only need to do it one time.  The mapped location stay until you manually delete them - as in if you come back 50 years later, they are still mapped just like they were.

Question...  I am hanging out at Laythe and I get great FPS while in orbit, but as soon as I move to map mode, my FPS drops to about 5 FPS if that.  Is this the result of Kopernicus not being update yet?

not sure if it even loads the rest of it's modules without the texture pack, but here's my observations:

@60 fps it eats...

50% graphics power without texture pack

75% graphics power with 2k textures

84% graphics power with 4k textures.

Any advice in making this mod more lightweight?

I have the same. In my game the ks3p is a huge FPS killer.

Well, if I cannot run it, I don't know who can.  Running a 3700X coupled to a 2070 Super. 

Mod problem is my guess.

Edit: I think I have a fix to the slow map speed: 

@Kopernicus:FINAL
{
	useOnDemandBiomes = False
}

It takes years for the download, is it just my PC, or it that normal? Cause the downlaod speed is just some Kb/s it could does take a hour or less for Ckan.

But the mod is one of the best I have ever seen.

Ok, I dont know what it is, but as soon as I try to download the mod via Ckan, it slows down the download speed from 700KB/s to 45/KB/s, and the texture pack only took some seconds. Is it just me or is it loading at the pace of a snail?

On version 1.8.1, the mod works fine.
The game every time says that this mod is for the old version of the game.
How can this be disabled?
