[March 2nd, 2022 ] Wabi Sabi Planet Mod


Recommended Posts


Wabi Sabi - Perfect Imperfection


The Overview:

 Wabi-Sabi. A word that has held prevalence in Japanese culture for centuries. A word that holds so much meaning and depth, it lacks a proper translation into English. It means the acceptance of transience and imperfection, and appreciation of beauty that is imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete in nature. Wabi-Sabi holds an appreciation of both natural objects and forces of nature, appreciating austerity, modesty, intimacy, asymmetry and roughness. Our planets easily fit this brand. Instead of embracing perfect spheres, habitable planets, perfect and balanced solar systems, we have a different unique approach. Each of our bodies has something unique to offer. In this mod, you won't cheat orbit around each body, or just observe from afar in tracking station, but be motivated to say "I want to go there for myself", and furthermore, "I want to stay here and keep coming back". Planets are unique experiences. They shouldn't be one off screenshot generators, but full of worth, value, and creativity blended with realism. Everything from a super-kerbin with exotic ammonia based life, to a lonely vacuum planet should have a relatively similar amount of value and unique content. If you want solar systems crammed with content, uniquely hand crafted planets, with plenty of gameplay, offering new challenges and reasons to explore, then this is it. Quality > quantity. No filler. In-depth lore and story that will send you on an odyssey spanning the small cluster of stars you find yourself in, somewhere between galaxies. Coming soon™️

Also very beautiful, this has a lot of potential already, Also if you are going to do star systems that are completely unrelated to Homeworld mod lore, then why don't you split this off into its own thing instead of making it an expansion pack?

It sortof is already at this point.

Some of you may think that GU and KS are similar, that they are. However, both of which are based off of real life concepts (see Trappist 1 example), meaning I don't really believe I'm making a GU knockoff. 

Just wanted to get this out here, heres a screenshot for the trouble.

Some content has been removed and/or redacted, due to:

  • accusations
  • personal remarks

...neither of which is allowed by the forum rules, specifically 2.2.d.  Please try to stay civil, folks.  Also, please remember that it's never any user's place to tell any other user what to do or not to do.

And if you see someone behaving in a way that you believe to be inappropriate, please just report the post and let the moderator team have a look at the matter; don't try to respond to it yourself, as that never ends well.

Thank you for your understanding.
