Alternis Kerbol Rekerjiggered is the re-release of the classic, wonderful, beautiful v0.23 mod for KSP: Alternis Kerbol. It grabs and re-arranges the solar system bodies to create something new. Almost all bodies have been changed somehow, be it in a large way or a small way.

^(Pkmniako's terrific infographic of the system.


  • Jool: Moved to Kerbin's original orbital position, blu-ified.
  • Bop: Turned into a tiny little subsatellite of Kerbin.
  • Pol: Inclination lowered, made into a lumpy rubble pile.
  • Kerbin: Now orbits Jool at the same place Tylo used to. New terrain.
  • Eve: Yellow, ringed, and shrunk to 670km radius, 1.12 G.
  • Laythe: Redone entirely, now a jungle moon with varied terrain, more land, and trees. (Panspermia's a heckuva thing.)
  • Minmus: Orbits Jool beneath Laythe, now 29km in radius (from 60), and deep reddish orange.
  • Tylo: Orbits the sun a bit past Duna's original orbit, radius increased to 1103 km and surface gravity is 4g, plus an atmosphere no more than 80% the density of Kerbin's.
  • Duna: Orbits Tylo, completely new terrain.
  • Moho: Orbit moved inward and made more eccentric, turned red and given a hot atmosphere and the, well, original Mohole.
  • Gilly: Small comet, shrunk to 8.5km radius.
  • Ike: Fat comet, shrunk to 17.5km radius.
  • Mun: Relocated to Jool orbit, replacing Vall, enlarged to 257km radius. New terrain.
  • Vall: Now orbits Eeloo, shrunk to 99.8 km radius. Totally new terrain.
  • Eeloo: Moved outward, increased to ~500 km radius, less eccentric and inclined orbit. Totally new terrain.
  • Dres: First moon of Tylo. New, heavily cratered terrain.
  • Lighting: Ambient light now nonexistent in space, dimmer on planet surfaces. Sun is slightly reddish-yellow and casts a harsh, warmer light.
  • Sun: Shrunk to 7500km, gravity increased to keep planetary speeds the same.
  • General: Most orbits have at least some inclination and eccentricity now, as opposed to being perfect circles like the Kerbin system. All atmospheres are defined realistically using OhioBob's calculator.
  • Science: Science configs have been made for all modified bodies, and many bodies have modified science multipliers.
  • Mods: Compatibility for PlanetShine, Kopernicus Expansion Rekerjiggered, Distant Object Enhancement, Outer Planets Mod, Kronometer, Environmental Visual Enhancements, Scatterer, and Principia.

  • Define displayNames for all planets. (Identical to stock names by default)
  • Fix realistic starlight intensity curve.
  • Add zero condition for default sunlight intensity curve.
  • New lens flare BrightnessCurve.

Note that AKR is no longer compatible with the latest versions of Scatterer.


Version 2.3.1 for Kerbal Space Program 1.4.3

Fixed Kopernicus compatibility for the latest versions of it, and KSP 1.4.x as well as 1.3.1. You no longer need the VertexPlanet patch config.

Removed Kerbin's City Lights configuration for now.

Fixed Eve's PQS Material being so bright it almost ruined Cupcakelander's cinematic.


Version for Kerbal Space Program 1.3.1

Released on 2018-01-16 fix Eeloo and Duna not working, fix Minmus' white rocks. All critical bugs for should be fixed. I apologize sincerely for any trouble this may have caused.


Version for Kerbal Space Program 1.3.1

Released on 2018-01-16 fix Dres not working. Wonder why I didn't find and fix these bugs earlier. Apologize to players for letting them down.

  • Scatterer compatibility for Eve, Jool, Laythe, Kerbin, Tylo, and Duna.
  • Principia patch has been fixed and extended to include axial tilts for Eve, Pol, Tylo, Dres, and Duna, as well as stabilizing the Jool system. The exact details of this patch are subject to change, as I, to quote "makes strange systems that are stable but completely confuse our default symmetric linear multistep method with its default step size," which can be fixed with the next Principia update.
  • City Lights for Kerbin, made by Poodmund. (EVE compatibility)
