Heh.  Author of GG here.  This may be the first negative feedback I've had since I made the program in 2014, so thanks for that!  (negative feedback is in general more useful than positive feedback). You have unusual taste, to say the least. I would ask you what you don't like, but, it really doesn't matter, as the output of GG was not really designed, it was more like it just "happened".  The math does what the math does, and that's all there is to it.  Good luck in your search for gas giants that appeal to you.

Edit: to wpetula, if you're trying for something like Uranus, you can get that out of GG, just depends what input image you feed it.

Oh, don't worry, it's nothing against the quality of it or anything - I'd just rather be making them myself, and GG is so commonly used that it's hard to get your own unique aesthetic with it

A preview of the Kere revamp coming for the next update:

(expect more craters when completed)


Also a revamp of the alternative sunflare, which'll become the new default flare (the anamorphic beam one will still be available, just no longer default)

The actual release is predicated on the next Scatterer update however, so don't expect 0.20 to come before then.

Alright, 0.20.0 is out after adding a couple last minute changes.

Visuals now need Scatterer 0.0822 or later, and the skybox now also works with Texture Replacer (thanks to @TheGhastModding for the fix). The Kere revamp is also included, as well as a few other things - full changelog is on the github.

hello everyone

Also, EVE no longer works, but perhaps I'll be able to repair that soon.

Oh? I wonder why, maybe EVE updated or something; it worked for me last time I checked at least.

And, I've not abandoned this, for anyone dismayed at the lack of updates - it's just being done really slowly, since I've got a lot of stuff in my life in the way as of late

So I was messing around with the KRASH mod and one of the bodies was titled "EdgeOfEternitySettings" so just for excrementss & giggles i put my vessel there, I don't think I was supposed to find this haha, but cool easter egg nonetheless
Also, a great planet pack in general! Loving it so far

Yeah basically the reason that exists is that Scatterer thinks the settings config is a sunflare, and so spams the log with errors about not being able to find the body it goes on (causing performance issues and making the log hard to read). And so I had to give it a body to attach an invisible sunflare to in order to fix it

Wow, it's been a while since last update. Life's been in the way of things, but, I'm starting to get close to having the next update ready.  I figured I should give people some fair warning though: you probably don't want to have anything in transit when updating (once I have it out, hopefully in the next couple weeks, but no guarantees), as most of the planets will be moved. This shouldn't have a very big impact on dV costs, as most of the movements are under 1% change in sma; what will be changing will be placing planets into a resonance chain, and adjusting the mean anomalies to fit the laplace criterion. This also shouldn't adversely affect the stability with Principia; if anything it should be improved.

There will also be a couple new bodies, and a handful of other things

Wow, even more resonances? Including Cerberus-Haven (which is 0.03% away from a 5:3 resonance), I count ten of them already. I don't see too many places left where a new resonance would even make sense, although some (like Prometheus and Rime) certainly do exist.

The primary Terminus system could be placed in a continuous chain from Calefact to Esker without moving anything more than about half a percent (Revenant-Tempest 5:2 and Achlys-Cerberus 7:3), and the Eterna system's resonances are currently probably unstable (on long timescales beyond what can be tested) due to being a holdover from a previous version when the planets were in a different order.

0.21 is out! Things ended up getting in the way again (including accidental scope increases and just plain life), so I decided to push a couple features back, but there's still a fair bit included


A couple new celestial bodies, a bunch of relatively minor stuff, and a big revamp to Cerberus's rings (the new texture is 16k, I actually still have some more planned for them) you can see part of here:

As usual, a complete changelog is available in the github release.

These changes look great!

Quote
  • Better placeholder terrain to Calefact's nightside

Now I can finally land on Calefact with only a reasonable risk of overheating!

Quote
  • Added a moon to Gelis, Portent
    • Currently untextured, will be done when Gelis is

Wait, Gelis was untextured? Its terrain seemed a little bland, but I can't believe it looked as good as it did.

Yep, about 1 in 3 worlds currently have terrain that's purely noise. I have ideas for Gelis and it'll probably be one of the sooner ones to get properly mapped, I've got a fair few ideas, but the needed time to make maps for larger worlds like that is harder to come by

is this mod still getting support? as I am interested to see where it goes.

It appears so:

Also, while the textures might not be finished yet, the entire system is very well done from a gameplay perspective. I would recommend checking it out!

That's good to hear, thank you.

@WarriorSabe i have saw on your github that you have steller neighbourhood mod for edge of eternity

Yeah, it's there but I haven't done a lot of work on it - it's primarily just a framework at the moment. Since it likely won't receive much attention until EoE itself is in a much more complete state, I've just left finding it through github as the only real way to access it until I actually have it as an actual focus of development.
