Singularity

Singularity is a KSP mod aimed at adding black hole shaders, including gravitational lensing and accretion disk, for use with planet packs and custom systems. The mod does nothing by itself and needs to be configured.

Other possible uses include wormholes, stars with gravitational lensing, “white holes” ( a sort of black hole with negative gravity, pushing away light).

Amazing.  Beautiful.

Can one orbit it?  Does it activate mandatory time warp because outside its influence time is moving more rapidly?

This is only the visual effects, no time dilation or anything. It adds the shader to a celestial body of your choice (stock or kopernicus), so you can orbit it.

Hello, author. First of all thank you for bringing this mod.

I have a question.

After I put the file in the GameData folder, there is no visual change after opening the game. What is the reason? Is it because other mods are needed?

Thanks.

The mod does nothing by itself as it needs to be configured. It includes visual effects for use with custom planet packs or systems, the goal is not to turn the stock system into gargantua.

Thank you.I've learned.

Do these effects necessarily need to be attached to on-rails planetary objects? I'd be interested in seeing some warp bubble lensing effects in the alcubierre drive mods

Idk about these mods, but if someone wants to adapt it for them they can

@blackrack This is an amazing mod! I like how you apply the shader effects to celestial bodies. This is kind of an odd question, but can it be applied to parts? If so, I have an expansion to Kerbal Komets in mind that spawns pairs of wormholes randomly. This would also be great for forming artificial wormholes in my Blueshift: Kerbal FTL mod that's in planning. Thanks again! :)

It can't be applied to parts right now (this was not the aim of this mod), however it's pretty straightforward to modify it to do that.

Understood. Well, if you get the time and inclination, a part shader would be great. Thanks again!

Wouldn't that require a different looking effect from blackholes though? I feel like you just want distorsion, but not necessarily a black hole.

Edited: oh nevermind I misread, you want wormholes.

Hey I'm kinda new to modding and need help figuring out how to get the accretion disc to work. Shaders can be any old .jpg or .png right?

I haven't tested with .jpg but the unity documentation says it should work. I know that .png works.

You are the best, I am updating KG3 and this was just what was needed, I had been looking for it for a long time and I could not find who could do it. Thank you!

I demand to see the results ;)
