[KSP 1.9.1] Astronomer's Visual Pack - Beyond (v4.03 - 5/3/20)

Recommended Posts

sounds like whoever made the original cloud textures didn't do their math correctly, and just called it 43K for whatever reason.

So what do you think could be the issue here?

The individual textures are still not a size that DX11 can handle. They need to be 8192x8192 at most. That is likely the highest you can go.

Tried resizing and that just made the clouds disappear. Oddly, one of the files was 16384x16384.

 

You got any other recommended cloud mods?

This one is fine, just don’t use the “43k” option

AVP still appears to still work in 1.4.4. I loaded craft files on Kerbin, Duna, and the Mun, and looked over the planets. There is a giant warning that Kopernicus, a dependency of AVP, is out of date. AVP itself probably doesn't need to be updated, but once Kopernicus is updated, it should be fully compatible. Until then, back up your save file and play on.

I'll analyze what wonders you've accomplished here, I've used your mod for a long time in other summers and I've never been disappointed =)

For a start, if you're not willing to put in a little effort to tell us what is out of date, we have even less want to help you out.

Besides that, it's Kopernicus, which doesn't work for 1.4.4. There is no work around yet, you'll have to roll KSP back to 1.4.3 in steam.

 

@themaster401 Great work on the newest release! CKAN update is always a bit slow so grabbed off the git and it's solved a few issues I had and hated. Thanks!

Weird, I downloaded and installed everything according to the guide and my KSP looks nothing like the screenshots or the video. Unfortunate.

Does this work with OPM or is there a mod which makes this works with OPM cause jool and the other textures look so good

Yes. Working fine for me with OPM on 1.4.3.

Hey - just thought I'd note that I'm getting horrific lag when nearing Dunas atmosphere. No idea why it's so laggy, considering that I've got an ASUS G752VS rig. NKO/Launches from Kerbin run fine by contrast.

Also, in E.V.E. under textures config it says "invalid name" - could that be affecting the FPS?

Hey um but could the ckan version for 1.4.4 be fixed please because I have an issue on where ckan kicks me out when I select astronomer's visual pack 8k textures and it says this mod is dependent on Astronomer's visual pack which is not currently updated for this current version of the game. Thanks

How can I remove the city lights and any city textures? I am also not very fond of the aurora on Duna since it has no magnetic field as well as the dust clouds on the moons considering they've no atmosphere. Edit: Also Im noticing that the lightning looks way to frequent any way to change that? If not than thats fine

File AstronomersVisualPack.version in AVP.v.3.73.zip on GitHub shows version 3.7.2. Maybe, there is a problem?

43k Kerbin clouds.

I don't know what niche partition of the KSP community would like to fiddle with such high resolution clouds, but they're now available.

Pros: Sharp, no texture repetition, performance impact is not too different from 8k
Cons: Your system will suffer.

Credit to NASA for their 43k "Blue Marble" Earth cloud rendition.

Download in the OP.

The clouds didn't show in my game. I'm pretty sure I have dragged everything into the right folder.

Does astronomers visual pack improve ground terrain as well, or just the clouds, atmosphere....etc?

If not is this compatible with stock visual terrain by Gailileo?

Basically I'm really confused because at this point there are several different ways to generally improve the graphics of KSP.

I would like to use the best all around one.

I tried EVE and it csused a memory leak....

Also EVE seems complicated to install because it requires a bunch of other mods as well and some of them you have to NOT install certain parts....like eve's config files, if you are installing the other mods that go with it....like scatterer and IT'S config files....

What does KSPRC do exactly?

If I install this via CKAN will it install the dependancies correctly....i.e. EVE without configs and Scatterer with configs?

I watched the trailer and it looks like it also installs the "solar flare" effect offered by a separate mod....so I probably shouldn't install the solar flare effect from the other mod? (I'm talking about sunflare with Scatterer. Do I need that, or does this visual pack do that on it's own?)

Basically it would be good to list the mods you DO NOT need/should NOT install with CKAN because the features overlap and would probably wreck your game.

Lastly how do you tell if your system/monitor/graphics can handle 2K/4K/8K resolutions?

I play on a laptop with a NVIDIA 980M card that has 4GB of RAM. My resolution is typically 1920x1080. I don't know that my monitor can display a better resolution than that. Should I stick with 2K then?

Astronomer's Visual Pack alone does not include modifications to terrain, though it is recommended to use KSPRC or SVT alongside this mod to fill that hole.

Yes, this should be fully compatible with any terrain pack.

Basically I'm really confused because at this point there are several different ways to generally improve the graphics of KSP.

I tried EVE and it csused a memory leak....

Try running an isolated KSP install with only EVE and a set of configs of your choice. I'm able to run AVP alongside ~160 mods with a maximum RAM usage of 11GB out of 16GB, so there's a possibility that another mod you are using is causing a conflict or such.

Also EVE seems complicated to install because it requires a bunch of other mods as well and some of them you have to NOT install certain parts....like eve's config files, if you are installing the other mods that go with it....like scatterer and IT'S config files....

What does KSPRC do exactly?

KSPRC, the way I've instructed it to be installed, overhauls terrain and textures (kerbals, parts, etc.)

If I install this via CKAN will it install the dependancies correctly....i.e. EVE without configs and Scatterer with configs?

Yes.

I watched the trailer and it looks like it also installs the "solar flare" effect offered by a separate mod....so I probably shouldn't install the solar flare effect from the other mod? (I'm talking about sunflare with Scatterer. Do I need that, or does this visual pack do that on it's own?)

AVP no longer includes a sunflare by default. It is recommended, in the case you don't prefer scatterer's default, you check out another sunflare mod, such as the Sunflares of Maar used in the trailer.

Basically it would be good to list the mods you DO NOT need/should NOT install with CKAN because the features overlap and would probably wreck your game.

Lastly how do you tell if your system/monitor/graphics can handle 2K/4K/8K resolutions?

Usually this depends on your RAM and vRAM. 16GB of RAM paired with 4GB of vRAM is able to handle the ~200 megabyte 8k textures, though stepping down may produce higher, more stable framerates. Your monitor resolution doesn't necessarily matter; the purpose of having high-resolution textures is to bring greater detail and clarity to features ingame. Eventually, once you are distant enough from an object, all three tiers converge into one as details blend into fewer and fewer pixels. However, if you are quite close to the object, you will notice the difference between low and high res textures.
