FYI for anyone who might be interested in this mod:

I've gotten it working on 1.7.3.  If there is any interest, I may consider adopting it, otherwise it will just be up on github when I'm done with my changes

Please, do so. This mod is one of the reasons I'm still on 1.3.1

I am definitely interested in seeing this updated.

ok, I'm working on a release.

Only significant change I'm making is adding a toggle to the New Game screen, which will disable the mod in a new game if you don't want it in that game.

I'm going on a trip in a day or so, so this may not be done before then

Beta of 1.7.3

https://github.com/linuxgurugamer/Planetary-Diversity/releases/tag/1.7.3

  • Fixed Reflection call to get Mod_OnVertexBuildHeight (new bool was added back in 1.5 or so)
  • Speeded up generation slightly by moving the percentage calculation out of the inner loop
  • Added InstallChecker
  • Added AssemblyVersion.tt
  • Added .version file
  • Added toggle on new game dialog, if disabled won't do the generation
  • Fixed the Game Seed field not showing up when entering the New Game menu after being in a game
  • Added an abort button to stop generation of info
  • Improved name generation with a procedural name generator
  • Added settings page, to show whether it is active or not.  Changes not allowed

This is a BETA.  For now, please report any issues here.  When it's ready for release, I'll create a new thread for it.

Please install it in a NEW install, do not install in your current games otherwise you will lose your game!!!

I'm adding the ability to select which things should be changed.  The easiest way is to add some additional toggles to the Start New Game, shown in the image below.   The fields are localized.  I'd like some comments on it:

Should "Change atmospheric pressure" and "Add or remove atmosphere" have 'pressure' and 'atmosphere' as plurals?

As well, perhaps break out Kerbin (by whatever name) from the other planets for atmosphere change as separate, perhaps as a multi-state:

  • stock atmosphere,
  • changed atmosphere,
  • no atmosphere,
  • and random.

Maybe even split "changed atmosphere" into greater and lesser density cases.

I thought it should be perhaps separate as changing the starting planet will have a bigger impact.

Plural makes sense, but the mod as written doesn't have those extra cases.  I’m only exposing the values which are currently in a config file

Pinging you all because you had all expressed interest in this mod.

There was a change made in KSP after 1.4.3 which broke it.  Thomas has already said he will not be continuing the mod.

I'm in the process of adopting it, I have it working in 1.7 (would probably work in 1.5 & 1.6, but I haven't tested that).

If you haven't already, please read my posts in this thread starting here:

Other than trying to reduce some of the screen space with the options I'm showing above, I'm pretty much ready to release it in the next few days

Here is an alternative layout, along with the first one I did. Please let me know which you all prefer:

I prefer the first layout, the vertical column. The other layout looks more cluttered to me.
