Will new celestial bodies be added? Really hope a gas giant 2 for Cassini and Huygens be added

Also will there be new probes, science and solar panels?

No idea, at the moment. They did say that they are adding comets but we don't know if they'll be actual celestial bodies and not just parts like asteroids are.

Read the first post of this thread, it says they are adding Rosetta and BepiColumbo. Presumably this means that we'll get special solar panels for those probes. We don't know yet if new probes means new science.

This is just a tease, I'm sure we'll get new info soon.

They could add a full-featured planet-comet (kinda Halley's) as a planet, to script stock missions to it, and randomly attach tails to the autogenerated asteroids.

At least, I would do this way.

I don’t think it’s happening but if we’re getting optional CommNet then yeah I guess

@AHHans looks at the "Enable Comm Network" option in the difficulty settings and goes "Hmmmm...." :/

Proportions seem to be a bit out of whack.

Its mainly the proportions that bother me, looks way to asparagus. None of the thiccness that makes Ariane 5 so great looking.

Edit: are these just stock parts with exchangeable skin? hope so

I think these are just reskins, 1 meter boosters and sadly 2.5m main tank, the engine also bothers me a lot, none of that weird boat tail fairing thing

I think that would actually be good as we really didn't need any more tanks and boosters if you ask me, and if these are stock parts, we can hope to make our own better looking replicas.

true, the decals are exiting, hopefully they have actual KSP stuff not just real world flags and the fairing is nice and rounded

yeah... :/ those boosters are a bit too thin and the Mainsail 100% does not match. I don’t care about the Mainsail tho, but the boosters need moar thiccness.

But are there Rosetta pics? What I want is Rosetta and that cute smol lander to boot.

I don’t care that much about the ariane but if they mess up bepi Colombo or Rosetta I will be angry

Absolutely behind this, I've been wanting some small lander parts for a while now.

I was concerned when I saw a "guaranteed" date of July 1, which to me after being here since 2013 seemed concerning because having always remembered Squad <when they were primary> not giving hard dates because a hard date can be easily missed felt very uncomfortable seeing a hard date. I want to say that I was excited to see another space agency team up with KSP. We got some spectacular parts when NASA partnered with KSP and gave us the SLS stuff. We got some cool asteroid stuff when B612 partnered with KSP for Asteroid Day one year. Now, we have the European Space Agency partnering with KSP and if the picture of the Ariane 5 is anything to go by, my concerns are much more deeper than just a hard date. I am thrilled that such a niche game is getting this much attention, I really am, however, in this instance, it seems like a few stickers were slapped onto stock parts and the day was called. I hope I am wrong and that the above image is a place holder, but, if it isn't, I hold no honest hope for Rosetta or bepi Colombo being anything close to accurate to the real world counterparts. This is just my own opinion, but, it would seem I am not alone in my concerns. I just hope our concerns are unfounded. My opinion of course. Your opinion may differ.

I'm just hoping that Rosetta and BepiCo are properly made. Either way, Bob getting glasses is update-of-the-year worthy.
