Welcome to the Ency-Mod- here you get the real Rebirth-Universe!

Isn't it boring to fly through a unfinished universe with bad textures on planets, unclear nebula textures and also old recovered X3 textures? Where you find unrealistic systems, but more reality can create much more spectacular backgrounds? Isn't it disturbing, reading about all these wonderful background things in the X- or ingame encyclopedia, but you can't find many of them in the game?

That's over! Get the full X-Universe-experience! All Systeme got upgraded by better textures and more

background objects! The X-Universe, as it should be- and as you deserve it!

Albion: The Halmnan-Aurora, described in Maelstrom and one of the most important nebulas in the X-Universe, glows on the Albion sky. Planets and Backgrounds got new textures!

DeVries: better planet-conzepts and a 5-times bigger sun create a much more realistic solar system! Find a completely reworked background to get a look ready for X-Rebirth! And because of their legendary age of millions of years the gates are now as undamaged as in OL.

Omicron Lyrae: See the advanced old system-concept from the very first trailer! It brings a bit more reality right to the system- Planets are moons now, and the motherplanet- a gasgiant!- now dominates the system! The nebular clouds got a reworking and now their function is not to hide the bad planetary texturing -this got fixed- but to upgrade the optical experience! And because of the described black hole at Maelstrom, the one in OL got replaced by a little star with a dust disk...

Maelstrom: Where is the maelstrom in Maelstrom? Where ist the Halmnan-Aurora? Now you can see the Halmnan core-region around the system- and as a new center for the system you can see the mysterious object classified as black hole, 'Unbirth'! The hole spews dust and debris jets into space and fights for dominance in the system, right against the uge gasgiant!

DLC Fields of Opportunity: To expand the System Background a little bit, I thought about the dust origin. Now this system is a binary system, but the second star collapsed, spreading out dust into the whole system!

And the grandmas now are young red- und blueheads- This must be fixed in every mod, of course Wink

With XRebirth Re-Imagined made by DeserterX, this Mod is a much more exiting experience. You get my edited Settings-file with the Mod- just replace the original file!
This is the Link to Re-Imagined: http://www.nexusmods.com/xrebirth/mods/322/?

PLEASE NOTE: Every time you take a screenshot, Re-Imagined saves a own one (better) in the Rebirth main folder. Erasing them from time to time could possibly solve performance problems.

To install just put the folder in the zip-file into the extensions-folder and play! To uninstall just erase the folder, because this Mod does nothing with your savegame- but do you really want to uninstall this?

Thanks to XsereneiX on DeviantArt for his/her free textures (Albion planet clouds) and of course to NASA for amazing pics from Earth and real nebulas...


Ency-Base Edition (2.0):
This is a Version with only the base elements like bigger sun or gasgiant, without texture improvements on planets and backgrounds. For users of mods like XR Panets.
http://goo.gl/AaQS4L

Ency-Full Edition (2.0):
The full package with all base elements and all texture improvements.
http://goo.gl/WJJTg5

Patch 2.0 => 2.0.1
Just copy files into the right folders and say yes to overwrite. For the new ones: download the main file and then add the patch files if a higher one to your version is aviable. Please read 'IMPORTANT.txt' BEFORE installing, if there is one...
NOTE FOR 2.0.1: OH, I got a message that the IMPORTANT note from 2.0 is still in it- for 2.0.1: IGNORE the IMPORTANT note!!! :Embarassed:
http://goo.gl/7Fsshx

Patch 2.0.1 => 2.2
Just copy files into the right folders and say yes to overwrite. For the new ones: download the main file and then add the patch files if a higher one to your version is aviable.
2.2 includes 2 folders: vanilla is for users without Re-Imagined, the Reimagined folder for the ones already installed Re-Imagined- in vanilla, the colorization and contrast of the textures is optimized for a normal, unchanged Rebirth!
https://goo.gl/SWBvXk

Patch 2.2 => 2.5 HOL
Just copy files into the right folders and say yes to overwrite. For the new ones: download the main file and then add the patch files if a higher one to your version is aviable.
2.5 includes Patches for Base and Full Edition to the release of HOL- this patch is only important for DLC HOL users, because nothing else gets changed! Some bugs in froststar get fixed and I added new BGs for froststar and HOL!
https://goo.gl/8dOvNJ

Forgot to pack the slightly different material libary for the non- Re-Imagined users into the patch- here you can find it. works like the other patches, use this as last one, if you are not using Re-Imagined.

Mirror-Link Encyclopedia Base Edition
Mirror-Link Encyclopedia Full Edition

Mirror-Link ency-patch 2.0.1

Oh, you removed the black hole.I did the same, also find it quite unrealistic and not very black hole-ish looking.Btw mate you're really fast with all these changes.

Congrats for the release!I will check it. Smile

Its a different project and does the same, only the Background tex in Albion is original, I've added the halmnan in a new mesh, so texturing this by another Mod should work. But the textures in OL and DeVries where changed so there could be a problem. But when you want to use the nebulas of XR nebulas instead, just erase the texture entrys for DeVries and OL- but caution, I also added the OL Bg as new mesh, so both versions will be added together... Wink Of course, ICO_hrs Bgs replacements in DeVries and Albion are better, and Combining the two Versions in Albion would be awsome...
greetings, MJ Fire

Ok, after I realized that the name was a little confusing, the name was changed so this is now a standalone mod. I also added the big reworkings and addings I finally made, so for these of you who loaded the first one- This is V 1.1.
I've added new completely reworked BGs, so I hope these are a possible alternative to the beautyful BGs in XR Nebula. The clouds and planet surfaces where also reworked to look better.
AND: Now, I finally also reworked Maelstroms BG and icemoon.
greetings, MJ Fire

Hm, after some people at the german thread had problems- how works the download-link?
Did anyone knows an alternate uploader where other people can download the file without any sign in- complete free? Nexusmods already needs a sign in after new year to load a file more than 2 MB...
greetings, MJ Fire

yes, the name of the file is still 'Encyclopedia'-already after renaming this thread-because some of the people had the original file- named Encyclopedia-Mod- and when installing the updated file renamed, they would have nearly the same Mod installed- twice. So the name of the folder is still 'Encyclopedia'- but its the Shining Mod- in the game itself under extensions, it is named right- as XRebirth Shining.
greetings, MJ Fire
AND: A Dropbox alternate Download Link is coming. uploading... Very Happy

the BG here seem to lag me hard or make my game ctd... almost 90% of the time when using super highways, I now use only XR Nebs and used all the planets from this mod... seems to be fine now.
