Yeah, the config structure was changed for the recent scatterer, and now new configs should be written for all atmospheric planets. Looks like the mod author is busy now. If you have PC powerful enough to run that pack, you can try to write it yourself. I tried, but my GPU was choking and some glitches occuring. Scatterer provides sample config for laythe, i took that as an example. And probably someone in Scatterer thread can help you with config formatting.

So, i just came back to this thread after a long time and re-read the description story, and was wondering if there were easter eggs in this mod, or if there is some lore planned.

what is RAM requirement

It`s high. About 16gb for modded game and Dawn system alone. GPU have to be powerful, too. Many planets.

I don't use any other mods, although I only have 8 GB ram, my mods take an insane amount of it(4GB)

although beyond home takes 6 GB and it works fine

how much ram do the other mods take because my PC runs OK with high ram usage Automation Empire pulls 7.9 GB and it works fine

Kopernicus Dosen't take the GPU as some other mods, should that shouldn't be an issue, it mostly RAM, and even then, I'm able to run TWB with an insane amount of planets pack without crazy lag... ( don't ask). I don't know anything about part mods though, so I don't know how much they take up.

I miss this mod. It seems to have died. The development thread has been dead since 2018. Blah.

Well, it is what happens when you try to make a mod of this size. Just look at Kerbal Star Systems.

Don`t be that pessimistic. Looks like only the scatterer and eve(partly) cfgs are broken, and 1.9.1 Kopernicus update will make the mod playable for much larger auditory because performance. And the author is online again.

I know, but the mod isn't being updated at all. The latest version is for 1.6.1

Soon bugs will run amok and the mod will be unplayable

I apologize for pretty much abandoning this whole thing after a really short period of support. Unfortunately at this moment I really don't have the time or drive to work on this project... The (badly written) code is on github so anyone is welcome to take a look.

In hindsight scope creep really ruined my will to work on this anymore... originally this mod is meant to only add ~20-30 planets, but my naiveness caused me to go very slightly overboard on how much stuff I want to add... Now this mod is basically a barely functioning, terribly optimized mess with pretty much no detail, and in the game this is practically just a massive memory hogging decoration that you look at in the tracking station.

With that said, now that KSP2 is on its way with a more promising planet modding system, I probably will give it a go again. TWB feels empty to me, in that it doesn't really achieve that vision I originally intended, and I hope that one of these days I will achieve that vision for real.

Thank you all for the support and I apologize again for that there probably won't be any more updates for this project.

No discredit to you. What you achieved was awesome. I used the Alcubierre Warp Drive mod to reach some of your planets in the past, but the amount of lag between KSP updating with new features and Kopernicus catching up has increased to the point that I have abandoned Kopernicus and by default any mods that need it as a dependency.

So, like you mentioned, my next best hope of travelling "beyond" the Kerbal star system will be KSP2. Thank you for your efforts in creating "the World Beyond" mod and giving my Kerbals the opportunity to reach for the stars!

Nothing to apologize for. Overshoot happens, and what you got done is impressive! Also how modular you made it was a really good call. I still have Dawn and Eon on my 1.8.1 save, and despite being a "badly optimized mess" it still runs fine even with GEP and Extrasolar thrown in there too.

EDIT: oh, and the thing you did to hide the star orbit line helps a LOT with tracking station mess. Very nice.
