[1.11.x] Corelian - A new home for Dres


Recommended Posts

CORELIAN - 1.0.5 RELEASE
A new home for Dres

The system:

This mod adds a new ringed gas giant, the eponymous Corelian, to the Kerbal system. It sits right where Dres used to, though with less inclination and eccentricity to make it less inconvenient to travel to.
The worlds:

  • Corelian: A pink, ringed gas giant a bit smaller than Jool. 4700km in radius with a gravity of 0.84g; 64% the mass of Jool
  • Thale: a dense, lumpy, Pol-sized body with a fast rotation rate and a close, somewhat irregular orbit. Baseline radius of 52km, with some areas nearly 30km above that. Baseline gravity of 0.113g, though near the highest points on the equator the apparent gravity can be as low as 0.012g due to a combination of elevation and spin rate
  • Pras: a rocky, barren world between Duna and Laythe in size. It has a relatively thin but oxygenated atmosphere, at datum it's 26% of Kerbin's sea level pressure and only 173 kelvins (-100 degrees celsius) in temperature. Radius of 391km, gravity of 0.37g
  • Atraxi: a rocky, Mun-sized world with a relatively high density and large canyons on its surface. Radius of 213km, gravity of 0.246g
  • Dres: the same Dres as before, just now orbiting Corelian with its same eccentricity and inclination. Rotated so that Corelian is visible from the Dres Canyon

The mod:

Requires Kopernicus Continued. For 1.8.1, instead use the original Kopernicus, and set useAtraxiScatters to false in the settings config.  There are no other dependencies apart from those of Kopernicus/Kopernicus Continued, but several mods are supported: 

  • Resource configs for Community Resource Pack and Rational Resources
  • Radiation, resource configs, and science reports for Kerbalism
  • Scatterer atmospheres
  • Science reports for SCANSat, SSPXr, and DMagic Orbital Science
  • Configs for Planetshine and Distant Object Enhancement
  • Jool re-patch and tested stability for Principia
  • And a reparenting for if you decide to use this with Beyond Home despite the clashing styles

Does this have any visual mods or delta v map?

It has Scatterer, but idk how to use EVE well enough so not that.

As for the dV, your Kerbin ejection will be the same as for Dres (just with less of an inclination change), but I haven't gotten the rest of the values together

The gas giant Corelian still has its day/night display offset by 90 degrees. All other bodies are correct.

Do you need a log to examine, or is this actually a known problem? I can’t seem to access my laptop now so a log and screenshots may be provided some time in the future.

I think that may be an issue with a missing normal which I think has affected gas giants in the later ksp versions.  WarriorSabe may have a better solution, but if you are on 1.9.1 (or the experimental 1.10.1), you could try adding normals = Kopernicus/Textures/generic_nm.dds after line 43 in Corelian/Bodies/Corelian/Corelian.cfg

I'll have to fix that later tonight or tomorrow; the problem didn't exist when I last updated it to 1.9, so it's probably due to a newer version of KopC than the one that was out when I did that.

@hemeac's solution will probably work in the meantime though

Alright, 1.0.3 is out with lighting fixes for the latest KopC. It looks like KopC is pretty much done now, so hopefully I don't need to do any more fixes until the 1.10.1 build becomes the official KopC version.

Took a quick break from working on EoE to update this. It seems it already worked in 1.11, but some fixes kop-side and a Scatterer discovery I made earlier meant I could bring back ring shadows - both the shadow on the rings, and with Scatterer the shadow on the planet. I also transposed DMOS magnetometer reports into stock magnetometer reports.
