Gameslinx Posted March 7, 2019 Share Posted March 7, 2019 (edited) Beyond Home Beyond Home (BH) is the final chapter in the story of Kerbalkind. It can be played independently of Before Kerbin and After Kerbin. Billions of years after Kerbol exploded, a few colony vessels survived and found a new system to inhabit. The Tempus System. The Tempus System is a binary star system, slightly larger than the Kerbol System. The two stars Destiny and Fate orbit each other, almost like a slow dance. These stars are the heart of this expansive system. The Kerbals have begun the colonization of two celestial bodies: Rhode, the home planet, and its moon Lua. Rhode's gravity is slightly less than Kerbin's. Its atmosphere is slightly thinner. It's a lot more modest than what the Kerbals were used to billions of years ago, however it is still a beauty to marvel at. Your task is to explore the Tempus System and uncover its secrets. Beyond Home is a planet mod for Kerbal Space Program that raises the bar by achieving many things once thought impossible. Each planet has custom surface features that the player can explore. These can range from simple rocks to vast structures and crashed starships. Each planet has had at least a week (or more) of time dedicated to making it perfect for the player to explore. Beyond Home may sound easy, but leaving the home planet is no longer the challenge. The journey is what counts - especially what lies at the end of it. Your focus will not be learning how to fly, it will be putting those skills to the test in wild, unique environments never seen before. See the trailer here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K9llIkFVXAE Trailers There are a number of trailers for Beyond Home. Here is the main trailer and a few popular ones, including upcoming features: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K9llIkFVXAE - The main trailer https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zm6vzBzuGGU - Gas giant overhaul https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jRoTx2NC9Jc - Mining base https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h3_hijMmj04 - Cities https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y5PSsIbgoBs - The original trailer I also have my own career mode series where I play the planet pack as a player myself: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLKfbvijUql4RUpLsJLJ-Zdenn6ArbOPik World-Firsts Beyond Home is the first planet mod to feature a fully functional binary star system at its core. Not only this, but entire structures can be procedurally generated on each planet - yes, you can land on those floating islands. Beyond Home comes with its own visual suite, meaning you can finally bring out the most performance you possibly can with one of the most optimized planet mods in the community. As well as this, Beyond Home offers the ability to collect bonus science rewards from various biomes across every planet - you will know where the challenge lies. There is even the option for you to launch from the moon of the home planet to aid with the system expansion and exploration. This planet pack is entirely about exploration and discovering vast, dynamic worlds that actually feel alive. Structures that indicate that an alien race has been here before you exist. The lore is extremely extensive. And yes, there are easter eggs! Compatibility Beyond Home is compatible with (or provides support for) the following mods: Environmental Visual Enhancements Scatterer Rescale (The recommended rescale factor is 2.5 or 3.7) Distant Object Enhancement Kopernicus Expansion Sigma Replacements: Skybox Kerbal Konstructs Astrogator (Use for transfer windows!) KS3P Principia - Download the patch for Beyond Home here: https://pastebin.com/m2QAyA7S Beyond Home is not compatible with: External visual mods (SVE, AVP, SVT...) External planet mods (JNSQ, GPP, GPO...) Scale Beyond Home is built at the stock scale. Each planet has been hand crafted for use within Kerbal Space Program.

There is also support for Sigma Dimensions configurations, where the recommended rescale factor is 2.5x or 3.7x for a challenge.
