Hey, sorry for being so quiet recently.

It's been a mixture of school, and personal family issues (including the invasion of Ukraine, which has personally taken a large toll on myself and my family living there).

However, I'd like to finally announce some big news.

First off, the Kerbol system is nearing completion! We only have a few more bodies to refine before we can declare it mostly* complete.

*Eeloo, Eve, Minmus, Gilly and some of the Joolian moons are still on the backburner

Second off, we do have progress! Yon is actively being developed along with its moon, Kyu. No pictures to show (yet).

Third, Duna and Ike have had a major overhaul. Like, a major update, including but not limited too:

  • A handdrawn, hand-detailed map blended with a mix of amazing real data from Mars.
  • Unique regions and biomes
  • A long history for you to uncover.
  • Dust storms (which can cover massive regions at a time!), as seen in the images below

We have a few playtests planned coming soon!

Kerbol playtest will come first, followed by an Erabu playtest (non-public, only available on our server).

Finally the alpha release:

Genesis

That will be coming sooner rather than later!

Thank you for all the support so far and thank you for being patient!

I'm not a native Ukrainian but ~50% of my lineage is (including my mom a native Ukrainian).

I have family in Kyiv right now

Short and sweet update:

The reason why there has been a lack of development is due to technical issues on smusha's end. His PC is in the shop and he'll have an update by Thursday this week (which we'll post on our discord: https://discord.gg/sXWPMgyS). As much as I would have loved to meet the dates originally proposed, in light of new current information we again have to push back. 

I hate that I have to do this, trust me.

On the bright side: most of Kerbol is completed.

We only need to finish out the remainder of the Joolean moons, Gilly, and Dres/main belt analogue system.

We are close, and we are making the final push.

You might have noticed: what about Yon, Eeloo, or Minmus? Yon is a difficult body to create and will require intricate work to get it right. Similarly, Eeloo needs to be done right the first time.  We have Eeloo made, but (spoilers!):

Spoiler

we are trying to add more Triton-like features.

Minmus is a similar story but we largely have not started dev on it yet. The "pre-Genesis" release will lack these bodies. We'll then work on completing these bodies in conjunction with Erabu (which only contains ~3-4 planned bodies, so it should release quickly.)

Then we'll go from there.

 

There is also one burning question we have been getting and also have been thinking about: "what about KSP 2?"

KSP 1 won't die with KSP 2, and if anything we look forward to KSP 2 so wee can properly implement the Wabi-Sabi experience we've been seeking to create. The new atmospheric features, weather, localized scatters and higher quality surface features are HIGHLY appealing to us.

 

TLDR; this mod is not dead...we are working through some technical problems unrelated to the mod itself.

We're back.

Smusha's PC is somewhat back in order.

I'm making the color maps now. He is making new height maps and we are working on new planets. 

 

At the end of the day real life (like me preparing and getting my college arrangements in order, and passing the IB DP program) are much more important than a planet mod.

But...regardless we have come back now and are going to do what we set out to do now, without as many hinderances in our personal lives we faced before.

 

Now of course these are just claims that we've been working. We could easily say that without meaning it. But, instead I'll provide some screenshots of what we are currently working on.

 

This is Vall.

Anyways sorry for the hiatus but we're much more active on discord.

(https://discord.gg/bRuaC7Tt7H)

Oh also another thing: we've been overhauling certain concepts such as Yinshi and joining a bunch of the unique ideas we had into larger ideas.

Furthermore, we've been working on lore. See below for the map I made of Kerbin. Oh yeah, if you thought Ace Combat's Strangereal was insane then just you wait for this.

This is only a portion of the map. The rest is highly work in progress. There is a rich history we have been developing, and we're excited to share it with you.

 

Don't worry, this won't be a one post and then nothing for months situation.

 

This is the start of new quality and intensified work on the mod. We'll be sharing more soon.

Please give me a download to these flags. I need them in my game.

I'm really sorry to disappoint but me and smusha have really had a change of heart when thinking about Wabi-Sabi and dealing with the KSP community in general.

This may seem like a cop-out but honestly we really despise what the Kopernicus and KSP community as a whole have become.

The levels of toxicity we have had to deal with just for developing and sharing a passion we have for astrobiology, astronomy, exoplanetary science and of course our passion for KSP is just sad.

We're moving on from this mess not because the goals were unachievable (frankly the biome system is easy to implement, political system of hazbiomes and different countries to play as via different configs, the pseudo-axial tilt project, and of course the planets),  but because we've thought it over and it wasn't worth it, for our mental health and for our lives (we have lives outside of this as well!). 

I need to focus on both my college education I'll be having soon and my relationship more and I plan on volunteering in Ukraine over the summer to help my people, while smusha wants to focus on his own passions in modding and design, not to mention the collaborative project he has now with Gemini (him and helio).

Most importantly though: we don't have a purpose for doing this any longer. This is not really about the far and few between sad pathetic excrementsheads who really have nothing better to do than sit online 24/7 who thrive on vitriol and toxicity.

This is about our own lives and really about us as people.

The real question is about release at this point; will this mod ever release? 

Potentially. Smusha and I might put it out here on this forum page in an inexplicable amount of time so keep watching this thread.

And who knows, maybe we'll make a return coming soon in 2023™.

 

Oh, and if people really care enough to make drawings and stupid excrements posts about "wAbi-SaBi enD1!1!" you are only proving our points. :)
