EDIT

It's been a month since we announced Parallax, since then a lot of progress has been made in its development (this may not come as a surprise to whoever is in the Complex Rockets mod dev server).

As a showcase of what is to come, here you can see the level of detail that Linx has managed to achieve in the savanna biome

How the interaction with the rock colliders will make exploring other moons and planets more intricate

And how vast the forests can get


Original Post

Those that watched Cameron's stream may have noticed I mentioned we were doing a collaboration with a KSP modder. Well, after months of work and for those that may have not deduced what is going on from what we have been adding in the changelog, we are finally ready to spill the beans!

You may have heard of Linx, the creator of one of the most, if not the most, insane KSP mod: Parallax 2. He has been recently working on a port of the mod for JNO, adapting it to our Mod API and doing some insane optimizations to get it to run as smooth as it gets.

This mod will be available soon for everyone with a good enough PC to enjoy driving and flying around rocks and foliage of all sorts in the stock system, and will support custom configs for you to add support for your custom planets and moons. This, combined with some of the changes coming in 1.2, aims to overhaul the visual appeal of JNO to hopefully bring the joy of the Droods to a larger audience.

    Just in case it wasn't clear enough, this is a mod, so it'll only be available on PC.

    I can't help but ask if it wouldn't be possible to just copy the mod files and just kind of paste it on the mobile version.
    Please somebody give me an explanation of how it would or wouldn't be possible.

    I'm not an expert on coding but wouldn't it be possible to just copy and paste the "code files" on mobile?
    (I don't really know how things work though)

    @Dyeraerospace mods aren't normally available on mobile (this applies to all games, not just JNO) due to various reasons, which i won't explain since it takes a while to do so

    @kananesgi Ohh, I took a coding class and they said, "{}", are called brackets. Thanks for that info!

    @JanusSpaceIndustries @Suspaceius Actually, those are called "braces" {} (or "curly brackets" sometimes, but they are properly called Braces). Brackets are the other character on that same key (on a standard American English KB, at least), the [ ]. Just dropping a little typography science...

    @JanusSpaceIndustries As you may have already seen, we have been collaborating with Linx to help him port his KSP mod "Parallax" into JNO. The mod is about to be released and we felt like we couldn't miss this opportunity to bring some very necessary visual enhancements to the game.

    The two main areas where we have focused are the rocket engine exhausts and the procedural wings but there are more changes and improvements you can find in the Release Notes, and some extra things coming as we progress in this update's beta testing.

    This update is going to be in beta testing for a couple weeks, and if everything goes well we should be looking at a public release in mid-late September, and a mobile release in early October. {And for everyone wondering, Parallax will be coming out next week.}

    @Suspaceius They are not going to release it any time this week (I think). They explained in the newer forum about the release date. If all goes well, they said they can release at mid-late September, and for the mobile release, early October. I hope that helps!
