Still not a functional upload with the Workshoptool... Sad 375 MB size of the full version- still too much?
greetings, MJ Fire

Hi Commodore, I just wanted to drop a line to thank you for your wonderful mod, I've used it for some months by now, even if I don't use all parts of it and I "merged" it with nebulas from Ico_HR (I liked his nebulas more than yours, but I liked your planets a lot more than his Very Happy), to try to obtain something more akin to my tastes, I hope you don't mind if I made some "cuts" here and there Smile...

It really gives "new life" to the universe, and I also used it to make the winning entry for the X Rebirth video competition Very Happy...so, if the video ended out to be so nice to be the favourite one for the Egosoft guys, it's for a big part also thanks to your work! Wink

Okay, I finally decided that I will make a pach especially for the players not using Re-Imagined- the BG tex are made primary for a player using Re-Imagined, the problem is thje colorisation and contrast in BGs like DeVries and Albion- I will try to get a more similar look for the original version without Re-Imagined...
greetings, MJ Fire

Now that you mention it, yes I don't use Re-Imagined, this may very well be one of the reasons why the nebula in your "vanilla" mod (it's like I made a mod of a mod Very Happy) seemed to be a little too strange in game...but still, planets are AWESOME, I could stare at the one in Albion for hours (and I do it indeed since I made my home in Far Out Smile), and the giant in Omicron is as giant as a giant could be Very Happy

I even liked a lot the "Interstellar" black hole in Maelstrom, I kept the original sector look only because the modded one seemed a bit too dull and grim for my taste (I really like sectors bathed in light, especially blue light! Razz)

Still thank for your and every other modder's work Wink

Oh, yes, I can understand that Very Happy
The point is that in the Encyclopedia-Description the system is at the center of the halmnan aurora- a giant and colorful planetary nebula, thousand times bigger than any other planetary nebula (you can see the halmnan aurora in Albion- made from a EGO Artwork that probably shows it) But to be closer at the grey of the original sector, I decided that the sphere around the system is grey- like, when you mix every paint-color, then you get a similar grey Wink
But of course, It is a very dark and dangerous layout (hmmm, you STILL orbiting a black hole, one of the most dangerous objects in universe- so it might be the correct layout for this system Wink Very Happy )

I already reworked Albion for both- and I think its much better now (looks sharpened and in Vannila darker and more like the Re-Imagined one) The Background in OL is also a bit darker and less intense- but I still have problems with DV- the color of the BG and gasgiant is too intense in Vanilla, and I can't get it better... I will try to get the sun less colorful and a little bit brighter- it looks much better with Re-Imagined Wink I will try again...
greetings, MJ Fire

By the way, the way you mixed both mods shows me you know very well what you have to do... Smile Thumb up
would be interesting to play your 'XR Nebula - Encyclopedia fusion mod' Very Happy

You are overestimating me, I just went by trial and error, going through all kind of space weirdness (no nebulas, no stars, atmospheres without planets, completely black emptiness being the worst of them all Very Happy) until I found the right combination of things to remove from your xml's, so that the related assets would be loaded from the nebulas mod instead of the Ency-mod...I'm a bit slow-minded when it comes down to code of any kind, I'm pretty sure that if you take a look at the modified xml, you'll find a lot of things out of place, lines I could have removed or lines that I shouldn't have removed at all Embarassed

I really don't have an exact clue of what I've done, but somehow it's working, so I'm fine as long as it stays that way Very Happy

I made a backup of the modified folder for my future reference, I can share it with you if you're interested in seeing how I horribly dissected your work Razz Wink

Very Happy thats ok, when I started to work on the first Version of Ency-XR it was the same- even with my enormous knowledge from X3 I was a complete rookie at XR and my first steps probably looked the same way Very Happy

Ah, finally I solved all the problems with DV and completely reworked the BG to create a better look for the radioactive cloud in the background- and after a little modification at one of the sun-tex It looks much better in vanilla.
I will upload the patch for the players without Re-Imagined until next week... Smile
greetings, MJ Fire

PS: some of the changes are at the material library (added a diffuseStr at planet_moon_a2 and added a sun entry)- and the cluster_d.xml (I changed the rgb-settings for the DeVries sun to get a better light)

Finally, 2.2 is online- have Fun!
@Aken_Bosh: Using the Re-Imagined Tex for Maelstrom at Vanilla makes the System much brighter- probably bright enough Very Happy

When you do different things... Embarassed so, after I missed the release for 3.60 (With this awesome new flight mode - drifting Smile ) I will check, if Ency 2.2 is still compatible- I think so, but thinking is not enough... Very Happy
greetings, MJ Fire
PS: did I hear a new Game coming? Surprised Surprised Surprised

Seeing this mod for the first time. If I wish to try this, is there a download link to a complete Version 2.2?

As I see it, I have to install v2.0, then update 2.0.1, then update 2.2. Is this correct?

Regards,
Thu

Yes Embarassed but it is just a copy and paste- not difficult to do. Sorry for not uploading the 2.2 File completely... Embarassed Embarassed Embarassed When the nex Update is needed, I will upload a Full Version of it.

I added a small patch for HOL (only needed for HOL user) to the start page, also, huge thanks to J. L. for uploading the mod to his servers! You find these new download-Links also on the start page- hope this will make it easier for the ones with download problems to get my mod... Wink
