If you'd like to be able to see that there's a nebula around (since they can still be used for harvesting) you can increase the numbers slightly to get a bit of that 'veil' back.
Thanks for finding and sharing this.
What I haven't completely understood yet.
Do we need to see the veil because it's game relevant or does it only appear together with the cloud textures?

The best thing about this mod is it seems to drastically improve performance, except for the random choppiness that seems to occur sometimes when ships spawn (reload is the only thing that seems to fix this).

The veil was just defined separately from the fog itself. V0.3 removes that as well. It's only game relevant in so far that it's possible to harvest the fog (which is still possible since as far as the game is concerned, the fog is still there. Just not visible to the player).

I was just asking because I would like to use the script which removes the veil but I
would like to keep the clouds.
But if the veil itself is as well a game element then I would have to live with it.
Invisible gameplay elements aren't very practical :)

As I have posted, V0.3 of the mod removes the veil by incorporating MutantDwarfs code. No need to separately install it. ;)

Sorry, getting my mods confused. :oops:
For NoFog, V0.2 removes the veil.

It increased my FPS also, and I've got an Eyefinity setup :)
