  1. This mod is not ready for review. It is heavily work in progress and there will be visual errors, bugs, and more. Please report them to help me fix them! THANK YOU FOR JULY 2023 TOTM! IMPORTANT, READ: Major bug fix download on the Discord. Make sure to download it from there. Join our discord!: https://discord.gg/P69PwuJGCa Overview: The Kerbals find themselves now on The Alter Kerbin, a world visually very similar to Kerbin, but yet vastly different. I seek to create a high-quality small-set of systems, with Indepth sciencedefs that allow you to truly discover what's brought a world to be and empower the player to meet extremes they haven't before yet seen. This mod is memory-intensive. If you have less than 16gb of memory, expect some issues with frames with all visual mods like parallax installed. Thank you for taking the time to read this page, to see the newest images go to the latest page. Note about Transfer Window Planner: the D/V requirements are WILDLY inaccurate.

  2. The KSP forum moderator's team presents the Threads of the Month July 2023 Edition Today is July 6th in my part of the world, which means it's way past time for this month's thread of the month! As many of you know, I am a part-time faculty member of a local community college (a two-year post-secondary education institution in the United States) and at a local university. Sometimes, my real-life job interferes with the things I love doing, such as the Thread of the Month. Some changes are coming soon, so I ask you to be patient with me. I want to answer a few questions I've received through the forum's DMs and Discord. And as always, I will not disclose the identity of those asking the questions; however, I will give my answer so all may benefit from the response. I thought I saw you on Discord as a moderator. Were you fired? No. I was not fired, but I decided to walk away from it. I am a moderator here and on the original Kerbal Space Program Steam discussion area. At first, I was more than willing to help moderate the Discord server because I enjoy giving back to this community, which means so much to me. However, between my professional commitments, the demands already promised on my time (this forum and moderating the Steam area), family commitments, the pursuit of another advanced degree, and some health-related issues (high-performing anxiety and depression, PTSD), it was more than what I could handle. Rather than have a bunch of community jobs and not be a strong team member in all of them, I decided to choose the ones where I know I provide the most value. I noticed a forum game never gets a thread of the month. Is this intentional? Yes. It is intentional. And I believe it is in the first Thread of the Month's original intent- to highlight our forum members' creativity. I am not saying it does not take creativity to come up with a forum game. However, the popularity of the forum games tends to overshadow the other threads. This would mean nothing besides forum games featured as threads of the month. So, for now, we recognize nominated forum games with honorable mentions. With that said, I have toyed around with offering a "featured forum game of the month" in the future (maybe in 2024 - depending on the feedback), but we'll have to see. Someone said you have a Discord account, but I do not see you on the KSP Discord. Why? Yes, I do have a Discord account, and you can find my Discord ID on my KSP profile page, listed where the Twitter ID goes. To avoid confusion about my roles, I decided not to be involved with the Discord server for Intercept Games/KSP2 because I have no official capacity there. NONE. So, I decided to leave. I maintain a "private" server for students in my college classes, but I boot them out once the end of the term hits. I've seen people using TOTM badges as signatures that don't have a TOTM listed. Who do I report it to? Some people want to be legends in their own minds. When I was in the military, we called these folks "PX Rangers" because they often went to the clothing sales store, bought awards they didn't earn, and went home while on leave and wore them on their uniforms to impress their friends and family members. It's the same mindset we see with those who will nab badges for challenges and threads of the month. Don't confront or call them out - you'll only start a flame war on the forum that will get ugly and potentially cause them to report you for harassment. So, instead, ignore them. I am working on a project now where I am cataloging all the threads of the month, going back to the very first one. Once completed, it will be linked to every TOTM in the future for all to see. Those imposters will know who they are, and everyone on the forum will know. I still like to have the mindset that most of our forum members are pretty good folk and won't do that sort of thing. I am pessimistically optimistic. An update about the KSP 2 Mods and Thread of the Month Nominations from now on: There's a change in this month's threads of the month. Last month, I (prematurely) featured a KSP2 mod, and immediately a few of you made an issue of it because I admitted that I had not installed the mod on my game and tested it out before featuring it. I want to address this issue - I have four copies of the original KSP, and I do have one version (1.12 - the last update) solely used for testing nominated mods for that version of KSP. But for KSP2, the developers have stated in several updates there is no official support for mods yet for KSP2. For this decision alone, and to prevent my frustration with KSP2, I have decided not to mod my copy of KSP2. It can cause the game to respond in very unexpected ways as the game undergoes development. This was why I did not test out the nominated mod. The community managers reached out to me with instructions regarding future nominations for mods for KSP2 - since there is no official support for mods yet in KSP2, the thread of the month will no longer feature mods for KSP2 until mod support is officially added to the game. Since the community managers are the ones who provide oversight to the forum moderator team, I will defer to their guidance in this. Instructions on using the TOTM images: If your thread has been selected as a TOTM, you can copy the image's link above, go to the area of the forum you want to place it, then paste the link. Press the <CONTROL> button when the image appears and right-click on your mouse. A menu will drop down and allow you to edit the picture. You can resize it - the first number can be changed as large or small as you want. Eventually, I will add these images to the thread I've created as a repository. For those out there who like the nerdy parts of the TOTM: To continue what I started in May 2021, I have kept some forum statistics to respond to those claiming the forum was dying. There were 460 new forum accounts (an increase of 124, or up 36.90% from June). Out of the new forum members that joined last month, there were 20 who transitioned from new accounts to being active and participating in the forum. This conversion means 4.34% of the new users who registered their accounts last month are now contributing members of our community! (This is a decrease from June; 7.44% of the new members became active and contributing members). If you’re interested in seeing the new members of our forum, you can click here! Now, without further delay, I present to you the threads of the month for July: Fan-fiction, Mission Reports, and Kerbal Space Program-inspired Creative Works: This category features a thread (or threads) that, while not directly Kerbal Space Program related, this work may be creative, fan-fiction, or other presentation related to the game. Initially, I was going to treat this as another cinematic nomination until I sat back and read the introduction of the cinematic tread by @kurgut: This is something that, at one time, we've all come up with our own (and sometimes, rather strange and weird) explanations for - how do our dear and departed favorite Kerbalnauts come back from those missions that go horribly wrong? Well, visit this thread, read about the backstory, watch the cinematic accompanying it, and laugh (or two!) This is truly a unique way to do a mission report. Forum Member Created Challenges and Missions: This category contains missions and challenges created by you, the members of our gaming community. Many excellent missions and challenges threads are created that expand our fun with the game and press our skills, creativity, and sometimes, luck beyond what we get accustomed to. Let’s face it, we all have our go-to design basics and our go-to vehicles we like to use. Sometimes, a good challenge can cause us to think of another way to achieve our goals. No thread was nominated for this category. Game Support/Game Mod of the Month: This category features either help with the game (stock or modded) or mods that add quality-of-life gameplay improvements to Kerbal Space Program. Although Kerbal Space Program has been out for over twelve years, those who love this game will admit there are still some areas where the game still needs a little love. If we are honest with ourselves, there's never been a "perfect" game. However, thanks to the easiness of modding KSP and our wonderful modding community, much progress is still being made in perfecting this game. This is one of the reasons I always tell folks in other threads I believe the original KSP will have a very long shelf life. The nomination for this category for the original KSP is for the mod by @smushanoob. Although a disclaimer at the top of the tread reads, "This mod is not ready for review. It is heavily work in progress, and there will be visual errors, bugs, and more," many of you felt the mod deserves to be honored with receiving the recognition of thread of the month. The mod, "[1.9.x - 1.12.5] [6/20/2023] - Ahum² Planet Pack" is described as: So, if you would like to give @smushanoob a hand in developing a new mod that adds many planets and many things to do, then why not try this? General community threads of the month: This category features a thread that adds to the community and doesn’t fit the game support/game mod categories. No thread was nominated for this category. Cinematic-based Fan-fiction, Mission Reports, and Kerbal Space Program-inspired Creative Works: This category features a video or other form of cinematic of a Kerbal mission report using in-game video recorded gameplay. Note: This has changed. Instead of awarding this to a thread, this is a *post of the month* since most new cinematic works are posted in a single thread. We have a lot of great content creators, but because they've been posting their mission reports as videos in a single thread, most of their work goes unnoticed by the general forum audience. Hopefully, this change in the category to a Post of the Month (POTM) will highlight the great work done by these deserving content creators. Other threads containing cinematic posts will also be featured in this category. Yes, folks, that's right. An overhauled image just for the cinematic posts! There are a lot of great content creators who are deserving of this recognition since we were made aware of the thread, Post Your Cinematics Here! (Cinematic Enthusiasts) by @HatBat. Although the thread did receive TOTM previously, it was felt that it wasn't enough for those who have shared your great creations featuring our favorite Kerbalnauts. Instead of being a TOTM, I've changed it into a CPOTM - a Cinematic Post of the Month. For this month's CPOTM, we'd like to recognize the work of @CEO of China in their cinematic, "Journey to Layth - KSP Cinematic," found here: Sometimes the forum software will get glitchy, and an exact post may be a little hard to find, especially when it is buried in a long thread. In case this happens, here's @CEO of China's cinematic presentation: If you encounter other cinematics you feel are worthy of being recognized as this category's post of the month; please nominate them! You can use the exact instructions to nominate a post containing a video as you would use to nominate a thread. Honorable mentions: Sometimes it's challenging to choose which threads will be selected as the Thread of the Month for our five categories. We get many good nominations each month but limit it to one for each type. Threads nominated but not selected as a thread of the month become honorable mentions. The honorable mention for this month is: I made a WORKING Space Elevator in KSP by @Mr. IDK The honorable mention for this month may not have made the Thread of The Month, but if you think it might be worth another opportunity, please renominate it! Congratulations to all the winners of the Thread of the Month! We want to thank our forum members, @AlamoVampire, @Camptaine, @jost, @ShadowDev, @Socraticat, and the members of the moderation team and staff who nominate this month's contenders. Thank you so much for helping us identify noteworthy threads and bringing their awareness to our forum community. We'd appreciate your continued help in the future. Odds and ends: TO NOMINATE A THREAD FOR CONSIDERATION: If you find a thread you feel should be considered for next month's thread of the month, use the "Report a comment" feature (the three dots on the upper right corner of the comment box) to report the thread. Please put in the text field of the port post "Nomination for the thread of the month," and we will do the rest! You can always nominate more than one thread, too. IF YOU WANT TO KNOW WHAT GOES INTO THE DECISION WHEN CONSIDERING THE TOTM: Wonder no more! This helpful guide is to help you understand what we use to help determine what makes a thread a really good thread and one that becomes a thread of the month/cinematic post of the month. It's everything you did or didn't want to know and includes helpful tips. And the last word for this month's post: I'd like to thank a few people who trust me enough to continue supporting and allowing me to contribute to the forum. I want to thank the Lead Moderator, @Vanamonde, for bringing me on as a moderator, a decision I'm sure he has had moments where he often wonders why he did it. I'd also like to thank @PD_Dakota, our community manager, and @Nerdy_Mike, the KSP Franchise Community Lead, for tolerating me and allowing me to continue to serve our Kerbal Space Program forum community through the monthly Threads of the Month post.

  3. I was asking my self this question : What exactly happens when a "missing crew respawn" in KSP. As KSP is a highly accurate and realisitc simulator about green little mens, there has to be a plausible explanation. They can't just re appear from thin air. Luckily, Wernher von Kerman was kind enough to show me the secrets of this interesting and complicated process ! He guided me in the secret KSP facilities where all this mirakle of Kerbal engineering happens. I hope you'll discover some interesting facts, as I did ! In the spoiler tab below, are some pictures showing the different steps of the process, guided by Pr. Wernher von Kerman, you can go through them, or watch directly the video at the bottom of this post, to not be spoiled if you prefer the video journey Thank you Pr. Kerman. So with this knowledge, we see that kerbals die all the time, get resurrected, but by this, loose all their memory about their mission, thus preventing them learning from their mystakes, and keeping kerbals mortality rates absurdly high. Die, resurrect, forget, die again from same mystake. Seems a virtuous circle enough. So is Kerbal life : ) Cheers, and don't hesitate sharing your toughts about this incredible Kerbal engineering process !
