Played around with it for a while , and I love what you did with OL , bringing back the earlyer version of it , looks so much more like "X" , you know like the old X2 over the top , but beautiful space

however there are things that happen , for some reason the water planet is transparent for me , and there are stars in front of it...

after I saw that I tryed to fine tune the mod for my own personal taste.
putting back OL nebula so I could use ICOhrs. would prefer a merge of yours + his lol.

would it be possible , to have a version that only brings stuff back , but not remove things , or change textures.

so all the planet changes like the sun in DV , the planets in OL (without removing fogplains)
just wondering.

annyway either way a beautyfull mod and realy makes me wonder why they did not use the older versions of there maps to begin with

Hm, this is X- nothing works the same way twice :D Don't know, why it makes this texture transparent... can you upload a screenshot?
The Problem is that I had to reconstruct the old concept with retexturing and adding new planets with new textures like the gasgiant, based on the Maelstrom gasgiant. Using the old original meshs and tex doesn't work for some reason, was removed or doesn't have the right size, and the cityplanet only works with retexturing. you of course can just erase the entrys for the bg tex or planet tex to mix both mods, then the tex from ICO-hr would work with my mod. I would mix primary Icos Albion BG with my halmnan (two different meshs, no problem) but in OL mixing is a problem: I also changed the BG meshs rotation and added a mesh, so mixing there is more difficult...
But yes, a conversion would be nice :wink:
Hm, many work to create a 'light version' with only changing concepts but I can try...

what I ended up doing is taking the default config for cluster C , then adding all the addons from you that I liked gas giant moons etc.
the water planet was still transparent , shame but oh well know I have the gas giant , and for some reason it makes it feel like good old X2.
so I am good.

say , have you tryed adding back in the old clusters? like cluster H , I , E etc... there a lot of deleted stuff so much they could make a Xrebirth 2 just by adding it back in lol.
did you try that? when I do it , it brakes , but maybe you can.

Yes, I tried, the same way as you did- also with a crash. Thats the reason I had to reconstruct it- but in original, the gasgiant was a 2d Background tex, so my version could be better :D
But some of these old Models in there still work, as the deactivated BG for Maelstrom. I just hat to rework the tex a little bit.

Waterplanet: repositioning the BG stars could help- sometimes this mesh for them is too small and the planet is outside- the reason why the planet seems to be transparent- only a therory why there is this problem.

So far as I could tell , it seems that my issue is , only the haze of the water planet is present , no matter I removed it. what I realy love is that massive gas giant , I still am amazed that they removed it , why?!

After Dropbox closed the links because of the traffic ( :evil: :evil: :evil: ) I I created alternate links to MEGA for the settings-file and the minipatch.
Please, EGOSOFT, create a part of this page where Modders can upload ther mods...
Or let steam do it, time for them to get useful... :wink:

Ok, got new Informations from the t-File and with that the internal encyclopedia-informations, so, the time is right to go to the next level: because Shining was only a prequel and i have enough info for 1.0, I can tell you:

The new Ency(clopedia)-Mod for XRebirth is coming!

My next step will be releasing the Version 1.0. For Shining users: Ency 1.0 is for you the next Update to Shining!
Biggest new part in Ency: Much more changings in Maelstrom: the black hole will be there and BG changes- because the system is at the center -and it's the creator- of the halmnan.

good idea.
I am not shure but I found information some time ago that either , a deleted or planned DLC in the future take place in the ridge of that black hole in OM.
do you know anything more about this?

No, I just read the sector- and system-descriptions they put into the t-file, and there is nothing about that- not a word about the black hole in OL, But there are 3 Descriptions in Maelstrom describing the black hole in this system- but it's not there! And no, they don't put it into the wrong sector... So I can't tell you if its true...

Other thing: After 10 years Egosoft still has not the ability to create a operabe alpha-blendeffect. I want to get a black-hole-jet in maelstrom to be UNDER the disc, but the bad blend-effect (this is the same issue as in X3!) makes that impossible! It is BEHIND the disc and looks like its position is BEFORE! Hate that... :evil:
