Overview

The discovery of mysterious SSTV signals originating from Duna was a monumental leap in the search for intelligent life. Deciphering the signals revealed The Ignotum System, a previously undiscovered solar system 3 light years from Kerbin. Having recently mastered interstellar travel and hibernation technologies, the Kerbals were quick to launch an expedition to this new system. The trip ran smoothly, but upon arrival....

Alone among the stars, you are the future of the expedition. Rediscover ancient rocketry and flight technologies as you explore a vast, handcrafted solar system. Uncover the secrets behind the SSTV signals and the alien race that created them.

Precursors is a planet pack designed to provide a fresh and exciting experience to players. Stranded on a cold and barren world, traverse highly detailed celestial bodies and never-before-seen environments. Each planet and moon has a distinct challenge and appearance; hike across scalding volcanic mountains, maneuver through massive forests, and battle against relentless gravity on your journey across The Ignotum System. Collect hundreds of custom science reports and unearth extensive lore in this continuation of the KSP story.

Contents

  • Over 20 highly detailed celestial bodies to explore
  • Over a thousand custom science reports total across all bodies
  • In-depth story components
  • Frequent updates and improvements

Dependencies

Recommended mods

Mods included in download

  • CTTP (Community Terrain Texture Pack)
  • Sigma LoadingScreens

Unsupported mods

TBD, any help testing would be appreciated! (It appears Strange New Worlds is incompatible)

Updates

Due to this mod being a one person project, major updates may be infrequent. Most of the planned major updates have been released. As of May 2022, I am still adding content.

Support

If you want to get support, please include a detailed description of the problem, your KSP logs, and—if applicable—screenshots. If you do not include these requirements, you will not receive support.

Known issues

  • Floating terrain scatters
  • Impossible contracts like, "Splash down on Scar". Either avoid these contracts or use the cheat menu to complete them until I come up with a better solution
  • Entering/escaping the influence of small moons (particularly Siren, Hydra, and Cetus) may cause unexpected orbital behavior
  • Occasional terrain bugs at planet and moon poles
  • Maar liquid color may be incorrect / transparent

Installation

  • Unzip the Precursors folder (or use extract all)
  • Place the contents of Precursors's GameData folder (there should be a folder called OR) into KSP's GameData folder
  • Remove the stock atmosphere folders (Eve, Kerbin, Duna, Jool, Laythe) from Scatterer
  • Start up KSP
  • If everything is installed correctly, you should encounter no issues!
