    Step 4: Real Solar System. This is the bread and butter of KSP RSSRO. Download the newest release here: Once you have done this, download the latest RSS textures (right here and pick one of the options. What you pick is dependent on your ram. If you have 16 gb or more and a powerful processor, the 16384 (16k) should be fine. If you have 8, I would suggest the 2048. If you have 16 gb but a lower end processor, I'd get the 8k or 4k textures respectively. I like 8k, it works well for my i5 6600k. Move the folder included (RSS-Textures) to the GameData folder. After that, you should be good.
