About This File

The same as my K1 mod, this one replaces the low resolution star and nebula textures with higher quality ones.

 

Update: Thanks to GNihilus2 I added compressed versions of my star textures, reducing their size from 3 MB to around 50 KB. There is no visible difference and there's also no need to download the new version if you already downloaded 1.0 unless your harddrive is really full.

Wonderful work.

This fixes a major eyesore from the vanilla game. The brown nebula they placed surrounding Peragus is just a cheap recolored version of the blue one. The whole skybox is just garbage. This new backdrop is an improvement in every way, and the Peragus cloud is beautifully done. Even though the regular nebula doesn't need replacement, this one definitely adds variety if you choose to keep the original for the first game.

 

Another change I'd like to see would be a slower movement speed for the stars seen from the Hawk during the prologue, since it feels a bit unrealistic. It would also be nice if the changes made to the module models were reflected in the description or the readme in some way.

 

Works great with the Improved Asteroids mod, though with some minor tweaks.
