Download The Varuta System (v0.3.0): https://www.spacedock.info/mod/2088/The Varuta System

 

The Varuta System is a mod that adds the planet Varuta and its many moons to the game.

 

Kopernicus is required for this mod to work!

 

What are the planets and moons are included in the varuta system you ask? Well here they are:

Varuta: Is one of the larger planets in the kerbol system, located between duna and dres. It is host to many unique and intresting moons, all of which should be explored

Theonus: Is the closest and of the more intresting looking moons of Varuta. Its surface is partially similar to Varuta. It also has some extreme terrain, so be careful when trying to land!

Niven Olten: Is the second and largest moon of Varuta, at almost 1/3 the size of its planet. Olten might look boring at first, but it has awesome views of Varuta and other moons from the surface.

Deaphus: Is one of the smaller moons in the Varuta System. It has regions of blue, which might be filled with Apatite under the surface. Like Theonus, it has extreme terrain.

Rebos: The smallest moon of Varuta, it has a relatively smooth surface and is most likely a captured asteroid due to its orbit and surface

And Oltimos: Its intresting in the fact that it is a sub-satellite of Olten. It orbits at an inclined orbit around Olten, and has a SOI of only 14km and is only 5km across.

Update #1: Started working on update v0.1.1 and the moon Rebos.

Rebos will be a new moon orbiting Varuta in an upcoming update to this mod and will be hard but interesting to get to.

P.S: I will have to change Niven's name because another mod (GPP) has a planet with the same name.

Maybe this should be in the Addon Development sub-forum since you're implying that your release version is 0.1 or lower. As an experienced modder I'm going to say up-front that this is bad practice. It tells me that while you're honest about how much a WIP this is, you're a little impatient to get something out the door. And rushed goods don't last long.

I will also say that your mod is indeed interesting but has a long way to go, just from looking at it. For instance, color patterns tend to be closely tied to the heightmap and geometry, but the disconnect in some of your worlds is so strong that it seems like the heightmaps came from the East and the color maps came from the West.

Lastly, I helped make GPP so I'm going to urge you out of pure prejudice and provocation, lol, to deal with Niven. ;)

Also, try not to wave your email address around. Anyone on the forum can start a private message to contact you but you're inviting spam-bots and trolls to reach you too.

Thanks for telling me this! I've just started making planets with kopernicus so I don't know much. I will use your advice for future planet mods I make.

Varuta System v0.1.1 Update: Niven becomes Olten, Proper Biomes Names, and Some New ScienceDefs for Varuta

v0.1.1 of The Varuta system is out and it adds some pretty big changes and improvements!

First, Niven is now called Olten!

Why? Because Niven is the name of a GPP Planet and my mod can't have a moon with the same name and Olten sounds like a better name.

Second, Biomes Names Are Properly Showed Now!

This is how they appeared in v0.1 (Not Proper):

Now, they appear like this in v0.1.1 (Proper!):

Also, as you can see, Varuta has some custom scienceDefs now! Now when you do an EVA Report in space high or low over Varuta, you get this custom message:

The next version, v0.2, will hopefully add a new moon Rebos to the system, and more scienceDefs to Varuta and starting to add some scienceDefs to its moons.

@Johnster_Space_Program Nice looking mods! 

However, one thing I think you're missing for this mod is a license...read through this thread and make sure you have everything (specifically point 1).

Apologies, I looked on the spacedock page and you do indeed have a license :rolleyes: You should probably specify the license in the OP though.

Ok, do I just need to specify it by adding this?

No, I believe you can just put something like ‘License: MIT’ in the OP. Keep that .txt in the mod folder though.

ok, doing that now. at the bottom of the OP, there should be a license with a spoiler.

Varuta System v0.2.0 and 0.2.1 Updates: The Moon Rebos, More ScienceDefs and Biomes, README and LICENSE

The new varuta system v0.2 updates are out! The new updates add the moon Rebos to Varuta with its own biomes, adds scienceDefs to Theonus and Olten, and now when you download the mod there's a proper LICENSE and README .txt file.

 

Rebos: The smallest moon of Varuta, it has a relatively smooth surface and is most likely a captured asteroid due to its orbit and surface

And as I said before, now when you download the mod, you will get this in the .zip file:

Also next to LICENSE there is the README file, It tells you where to put the VarutaSystem folder and what kopernicus version you need.

The Varuta System v0.3.0 Update: Olten gets a new moon, Oltimos, More ScienceDefs for Olten and Deaphus!

The varuta system v0.3 update is now out! This update adds the small asteroid moon to Olten, Oltimos! Its small SOI and gravity make it hard to land on without bouncing off!

VIVZjoW.png

Oltimos is also a sub-satellite, which you don't see often!

Also I added more ScienceDefs to Olten and Deaphus and am almost done adding them to all the moons in the system. Also, I started working on a new mod that should come out later today, Dunope Revamped!
