Tydos Dawn Enhanced Solar System

Want more places to land? This is your patch! Tydos Dawn contains three entirely new moons orbiting the distant gas giant.

Installation (Important)

Don't download this sandbox directly, please download the solar system files pack using this link, and select Download All. Then, open the Installation Guide and follow its instructions.

Arcos: An ancient, rocky world which has suffered more than its fair share of impacts. This moon will provide a much needed gravity assit to the experienced traveler, and provides a gateway to the inner moons and low Tydos orbit. But don't overlook landing here -- there are loads of places to explore!

Hados: A toxic volcanic moon whose core has been heated by intense tidal forces. The surface here is so new that no craters are visible. Tread warily, red hot lava is still found at multiple hotspots. Find a smooth spot to land on and you'll get amazing views of Tydos!

Frigios: A world dominated by ice and snow, wrapped in only the thinnest of atmospheres. Fresh deposits of snow cover the moon, and underground layers of ice have been exposed in several places, including the interior of a huge crater near the South Pole. The North Pole ice lakes are well worth investigating, but pack a scarf!

Follow the installation guide PDF found in the files pack for a successful setup.

    I literally stared at my screen while in polar orbit around Frigios for 10 minutes. Absolutely beautiful. Well done!

    @MyCoolFace256 Since I updated this post, another 13 players have downloaded the sandbox. For some people, instructions are just a nuisance. Unfortunately for them, the game breaking can also be quite inconvenient.

    My sincere apologies to anyone who had a failed installation, the setup method the sandbox originally used was too complicated and depended on following the instructions literally to the letter. The Google Drive download now contains the sandbox folder as well, so its a simple triple copy-paste. I've updated the installation guide accordingly. (If you've already installed [ESS], then have my congratulations and don't worry about reinstalling!)
