[1.9.1 - 1.10.x] Beyond Home 1.5.0 (Supports Parallax)


Recommended Posts

Just saw your post in the 1.9 thread Gameslinx. I hope that gets addressed. Been looking forward for the 1.8 Beyond Home for a long time and now I dont know what to think. Lol. I do know that if you release BH for 1.8 id put 1.9 on the back burner XD.

I plan to release BH for 1.8.1 in the next few days. The changelog is already 300+ lines long and I need a break, I've been at it non stop for 7 months!

1.9.0 will come later after problems have been ironed out, but I'll have my work cut out for me again unfortunately

Version 1.3.0 released for KSP 1.8.1.

After 7 months of non stop work, Beyond Home 1.3 is now ready for you all to play! The changelog is huge:

Beyond Home 1.3 Changelog (Full)

See the bottom of the changelog for general tweaks, fixes, optimization etc. Enjoy :)

    The terrain portion of the changelog is tiny but it has the biggest changes on the planets. So, yeah

    I spent the longest time on the terrain textures, bloody difficult they are!

    - Removed unused scatters
    - Removed unused textures
    - Removed unused MTL files
    - Reduced some biome map resolutions
    - Enabled GPU Instancing for scatters, but unsure if it works or not. Better performance for low end CPUs
    - Reduced layer volume for EVE clouds and increased the size instead
    - Reduced some planets' scatter render distances
    
- Other:
    - Added installation checker. Source code on Github because SkWoD SAyS So
    - Added new Skybox
    
Thank you for downloading Beyond Home, and for getting this far down the changelog.
If you have any issues, contact me on the KSP forums as "Gameslinx", or Discord as "Gameslinx#0544".

Enjoy Beyond Home!
        
        
        
        
        

        
        

Quick PS: If you have problems downloading the update when it's fresh, please let me know! I ran the update past my beta testers, but there is a chance I could have messed up in the release. Thank you!

Just realised I messed up a file path.

If you're on 1.3.0, do this:

Find BeyondHome/Configs/Gateway.cfg

Open and scroll to Rings. Change Gateway_Ring.png to Gateway_Ring.dds

New release coming shortly to fix this

MANY thanks! I should have notified you sooner and sent you a test version for you to play around with at your leisure. Apologies for forgetting!

Wow, I just discovered this mind blowing planet pack (now it will be hard to choose between JNSQ and Beyond Home, lol) and started to wonder if it will work with Principia... and @MorePortal just did this 30 mins ago!

Gotta try it with 3.7x rescale and Kerbalism.

Well, it works with Galileo88's Rescale! 6.4x, though I only tested simple orbit insertion from Rhodes.

I wonder how long it will take to make visit to Laythe in old Kerbol system... Principia for some reason don't draw flight plan THAT long :D

For those who want to use my patch: sometimes craft can explode from heating for no reason (rarely, for me it happends mostly at high warp). I don't know how to fix it. Sorry!

There is something weird going on. On both Lua and Armstrong when landed and close to the surface, the surface is black. On armstrong the gorge is about pure white viewed from orbit, pitch black when landed. Same thing on Lua, on direct sunlight. Black ground. 

I removed scatterer, EVE and distant object enhancement mods. I don't think I have any other graphic mods. Did not help. I am using sigma dimensions with 2.5 rescale.

Happy to provide logs or further info if needed:)

Hey, thanks for this awesome planet pack! I'm really enjoying it.

I was daunted by the warning at the front page to try this with other planet packs that add distant stars, and I have to report that this is compatible to Extrasolar and almost compatible to Galaxies Unbound (for GU, you have to get rid of their SunRescale either by ModuleManager or by deleting the file).

 

I now have a small star cluster to explore!

Awesome! I'll update the OP shortly

This planet pack looks amazing, compelling and exciting to explore. I have been watching it's progress for some time now and love seeing all the screenshots.

The only thing that's stopping me from getting into it right now is that I'm currently on JNSQ which is the other awesome planet pack currently available.

But I can promise this: I will be playing this next!

I manage to fix this by setting the Terrain Detail to Beyond Home Low/Med/High.

Yeah, it's in the install instructions too. I'll add the check for that in the installation checker :)

What's considered Mun and Minmus for Contract Configurator?

Mun and Minmus don't exist and have no counterparts. I'm not sure what that contract would do, but I have a feeling BH will need a contract configurator patch. I can look into it if you'd like

That'd be nice.  I'm almost at the point of stepping off on another body.  If push comes to shove I'll consider them Lua and Armstrong/Ash and I'll have to figure out how to "cheat" them.
