[1.12.3] PRVE v1.9 - Photo Realistic Visual Enhancements

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)


Originally released on github back in November/December 2021, I finally came around to making a KSP forum post for it!

PRVE is a visual enhancement mod for Real Solar System. Components of the mod are derived from RVE64k, EVO, RSSVE, KSRSS, GGE, and much more.



  • 32k Cloud texture with even higher quality detail
  • 4k detail clouds texture
  • 43k Earth city texture
  • 64k Ground texture and shadows addon if desired
  • Newest scatterer configs
  • Wavy auroras
  • GGE integration and optimization (Big thanks to @ballisticfox0)
  • Custom TUFX and KS3P config (Use both for most optimal looks)




This mod has been created with a computer rig of these specs running Windows:

  • AMD Ryzen 5 1600
  • 32gb RAM (Maybe a bit excessive, unless you use the 64k addon)
  • NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6gb Dual fans



This pic uses a custom 16k color map for Earth's surface which may be available soon:


Earth's Aurora:


Sunset in Earth orbit:






You may download this mod via CKAN or github

Does this have Gas Giants Enhanced integrated?

No it does not. But I have looked at what GGE does and would be happy to integrate it into the mod.

I got around 5 to 15 fps with the PRVE64K when I was looking at the Earth in the space. I got a RTX3070 and i7 10700k with 32G 3600MHz rams. So just use the PRVE instead of PRVE64K unless you are confident with your setup lol.

Absolutely stunning mod but holy GPU utilization batman...

My CPU utilization was sitting at 10% while GPU is sitting at 99% with 10.7/11Gb VRAM used and I was getting 1s game time/ 5s real time.

Is this compatible with KSRSS?

The thread owner hasn't been online for a few weeks so I'll make a guess: likely not compatible.

Note that KSRSS is currently undergoing a reworking. KSRSS Reborn is in beta with significant graphics improvements to the former KSRSS 0.7. Check the KSRSS thread; search for the "gitlab" comments to find the Reborn beta download link.
