Outer Planets Atmospheric Upgrade Pack for Orbiter 2016

Outer Planets Atmospheric Upgrade Pack for Orbiter 2016 1.0.0

This provides all 4 giant planets with an atmospheric module (they have none by default). The module will simulate:
  • Jupiter's atmosphere from 22 bars up to 5000km above that (pretty much the top of the exosphere), in 7 distinct layers based on the Galileo probe's results.
  • Saturn's atmosphere from 10 bars up to 5000km above that (pretty much the top of the exosphere), in 8 distinct layers (Thermosphere and Exosphere based on Cassini Grand Finale results).
  • Uranus's atmosphere from 65 bars up to 7765km above that (the exosphere), in 9 distinct layers, based on Ice Giant Probe engineering studies.
  • Neptune's atmosphere from 89 bars up to 8588km above that (the exosphere), in 8 distinct layers. The module is largely based on NASA's Global Reference Atmospheric Model (GRAM) output for Neptune.

I did not include Titan, because cristiapi already created a high fidelity module based on Huygens data (Titan Atmosphere - v1.0.0). You can download it from Orbiter Hangar as well to make your collection complete.

PDF's detailing the module's inner workings and New! quasi-photorealistic atmospheric diagrams for all 4 planets are included as well as a table just for fun describing the atmospheres below the Orbiter 0 altitude (that can't be simulated).
