[GFX] [Final] Distant Galaxies B-Gone [1.0.*.*]
« on: August 25, 2010, 09:59:32 AM »
Description (This is a SUPER tiny mod)

Compatibility
Works for all currently known game versions.

Does what the title says - Removes the Distant Galaxies in the Background, only leaves tiny stars visible. Thus improving readability. Why would you need this when the options have a Disable BG option?

Because you also disable the nice stars with that option ;P Hence this little mod is the middle path of less BG, but still some BG

Installation

Extract the rar into "Star Ruler\Images" and overwrite the files it asks you to (make sure you overwrite the files, and not create a subfolder or something ,p)

Until we can override textures this is the only way - and overwriting obviously means, that if you want to Uninstall you have to reinstall the game ;p Unless you made Backups first...

Edit: Small edit to make it easier to tell that this is still, in fact, working ;)

Note:  The option to disable Distant Galaxies in Graphics also disables the starfield skybox so if you want to play with tiny stars in the background but without the large distant galaxy sprites, this mod offers the best compromise at this time. :)

Ah yes, i made this only because that option made the nice (and not distracting) stars disappear as well - forgot to say that in the description  :D

Thanks for this.  When I had backgrounds turned on, it looked too cluttered and I could never find what I was looking for, when I turned off backgrounds, it looked too barren.  With this mod it's just right, still gives me the sence that I'm in space somewhere but doesn't overwhelm my eyes with the extras, just enough.

thanks ^_^ I've been looking for something that wouldn't be leaving me with a black screen in the background. I'm going to greatly appreciate this mod. ^_^
