KSP Loading... Preview: Ike & Minmus revamp.

Recommended Posts

Are they coming from the work being done on KSP2?  I know they have rebuilt the KSP system with updated graphics.

I think it may not be a coincidence that we've gotten certain things in recent updates.  Perhaps as a test run of sorts.  Part variants in particular come to mind.

I'm  pretty sure it's  unrelated.  Codebase are too different

I trust your opinion.  Some of the features in KSP2 seemed recently familiar.  I thought maybe since Squad and Star Theory were working together, they may have learned from each other about implementing certain features.  I'm no expert and willing to be wrong on the matter.

We do talk to each other but each game has it's own workflow and style.

It does sparkle! But now the grain is finer, when you move and get a nice light source the sparkle becomes more evident and goes moving reacting to the light source!

No, they are not "working together".  They do talk, and at a guess Star Theory may have access to the KSP codebase,  but they are two totally separate development groups

Well, actually we are doing a bit more than just talking but still KSP2 is a Star Theory game.

Watching any of these on my phone make the high quality images look worse than low quality.   Its a good modern phone too.  :(

Nice to get to a PC and really see the difference.

Sooooo, this stuff looks real nice and I'm assuming all the celestial bodies are in pipe for a revamp eventually...

The big question is, are they all coming in 1.8?

Looking good.  I had some concerns that you'd be greatly changing the look of these worlds, but now it seems you're just (greatly) increasing the resolution and detail... thanks!

Looks great! You know i'd really like to see some very primitive life on laythe. 

 

With that i mean some moss or algae on the rocks.

You clearly meant dinosaurs and we all know it.

These look gorgeous.

Am I the only one who's more hyped about KSP 1.8.0 than KSP2?

Agreed. Minmus is my favorite planet, and I am still a little apprehensive about what might happen to it in KSP2, but this looks pretty good. Especially if the sparkle works as described. I hope the makers of KSP2 do not stray to far from this. 

Nice work ksp1 people. This looks great.

@SQUAD Are you still doing part revamps? I really like the revamp effort you've been doing but I'm worried that an unfinished job will do the opposite of what it was intended to - make the game's art even more mismatched.
