[1.8.1] Toshnika Star System


Recommended Posts

This really needs a better name.

 

This mod is still a work in progress, this version is being released mainly for feedback. Anyway, this is a simple exoplanet mod, working in much the same way as Extrasolar, with a star orbiting Kerbol at great distance, making for reasonable computer resource usage, and a balanced and believable (to kerbal scale at least) distance.

As a planet pack, this requires Kopernicus  to work.

Bodies:

Jebediah's Star

'Jebediah's Star has been known for a long time. It was discovered only recently, however, that the yellow star was very close to Kerbol, dancing along the edge of its SOI. Astronomers have noted periodic dimming and gravitational wobbles, indicating the presense of exoplanets.'

SMA: 90076165843942m (Kerbol)

Inclination: 0

Radius: 45,785km

Rotation: 20 days

 

Surtr

mbPD29c.pngSurtr is what is know as a 'hot Jool', a large gas planet orbiting close to its star. Surtr also appears to have a ring of dark rock, possibly from the breakup of a moon.'

SMA 1293455354m (Jebediah's Star)

Inclination: 3.38

Radius: 12,515km

Rotation: 17 d, 5h, 15m

 

Marek

'Marek is a moon around Surtr, made of igneous rock. The surface is torn and nearly molten due to tidal forces and extreme proximity to Jebediah's Star.'

SMA: 100671402m (Surtr)

Inclination: 0

Radius: 120km

Rotation 4d, 1h, 1m

 

Foz

'Foz is a large moon around Surtr. It is considerably less active than Marek, but still very hot.'

SMA: 170714020 (Surtr)

Inclination: 0

Rotation 5d, 51m

 

Arrate

'Arrate is a warm ocean world around Jebediah's Star. Atmospheric spectrometry indicates an atmosphere of oxygen and nitrogen, much like Kerbin. There is however a strange spectral line, indicating a large amount of helium in the air.'

SMA: 3968530059m (Jebediah's Star)

Inclination: 0

Radius: 750km

Rotation: 6d, 1h, 27m

 There are some known issues, such as the fact that  terrain looks wrong from orbit. This is because I didn't add proper texturing for the scaled version, still working on that.
