Information Changelog Stats

Astronomer's Visual Pack was a series of visual enhancements packs for alpha versions of Kerbal Space Program, the most recent of which was Interstellar v2. Following the release of 0.90.0, the removal of official 64-bit KSP and the developer of E.V.E. 7-4 going silent, the pack would fade out, as not even the best computers could cope with the boundaries pushed by the pack. Eventually, Release 1.1 came around, and the game was blessed with the return of 64-bit, the arrival of Unity 5 and many optimizations. At this point, E.V.E. had returned, the problem being that the new E.V.E. used a different file structure from E.V.E. 7-4. One day, a forum user by the name of "RangeMachine" had done something incredible. E.V.E. 7-4 was updated to be compatible with Kerbal Space Program 1.1, and eventually 1.2. Every other module in AVP remained compatible with the latest versions of mods, but this change had finally brought back the entirety of the mod for a new generation of Kerbal Space Program players.

Both repackagings of Interstellar v2 and Edge of Oblivion are featured in the downloads, so choose wisely for the ultimate visual experience.

Version x.x = Interstellar v2

Version x.xE = Edge of Oblivion

Since the EnvironmentalVisualEnhancements in this mod is separate from the latest versions, you are able to mix and match parts from packs like KSPRC and StockVisualEnhancements with AVP.

There is full compatibility with the Outer Planets Mod, with optional cloud configs for Sarnus, Urlum, Neidon, and Tekto included.

The mod is much less intensive now due to Unity 5 and 64-bit, so feel free to use the highest of settings.

Mods featured:

This is just a repackaging; none of Astronomer's original work has been modified. I will take this down, if he requests.
