Post your ideas here! From individual planet concepts to complete systems. And maybe your idea might get implemented in KSS one day.
(please keep it a little realistic)
I'm aware that terrestrial planets with the mass of Jupiter can exist; what I'm saying is that a planet the same size as Earth but with the mass of Jupiter couldn't exist. As the article says, a Jupiter-mass rocky planet with a typical density would be about the size of Neptune, many times bigger than earth. Come to think of it, such a planet in KSS would be pretty cool.
Do you know why, specifically, other plant models aren't possible in KSP? Seems like a pretty arbitrary limitation.
A Jupiter-mass and Neptune size (or even smaller) is what I was thinking of to confuse, scare the pilot, and require huge deltaV to avoid burning up in the thick atmosphere - before doing a parachute free soft landing. I thought making such a planet is just finding a similar rocky planet and change some parameters of mass and size (I may be wrong).
There is also lots of simple alien life in the Kerbal Star Systems. So I hope new science parts are made for finding alien life. Finding alien life will be the discovery of the millennium.
Just offering ideas.
Yeah, something like those (which I already knew about), but even bigger, something similar to Naal or Oran in size, but still with a reachable rocky surface.
There will be such celestials in 0.8.
"There will be such celestials in 0.8."
I'm looking forward to a high-gravity rocky planet that's possible to land on, but near impossible to escape. Like Eve, but much bigger (or more dense). This planet will be scary (and confuse) for anyone to try to escape. Also like EVE, you need to reduce the Delta V a LOT or burn up on re-entry. Duna is too easy for example.
EDIT: I guess "Ilve" is the largest inhabitable planet. But still a lot less mass than than what I'm describing.
What do you think?
