    Additional PSA - **DEEP SPACE V2 (now with LESS NOISE)** is a DEAD MOD and has been dead for FOUR YEARS. (For the love of all that is decent, please stop endorsing it to the top page...)

      LUAs are scripts used to recreate and potentially update a mod for a new NMS version.  They are used with AMUMSS to do this.  You only need to put the .pak file into your PCBANKS\MODS folder.  :)

    Hey Exosolar and Babscoole,

    Are you planning on updating the Exosolar mods for the new Endurance update? Just got back into NMS and want to download basically all the Exosolar mods.

    Thanks,

      Yes I am.  :)

      After an NMS update comes out, we have to wait for the tool used by modders, MBINCompiler, to be updated before the actual mods can get fixed.  Usually takes a few days after an NMS Update for this to happen.  I'll get the mod updated as soon as MBINCompiler is fully compatible with Endurance.  Please be patient.

    Hello, is there no Lua planned for this mod? I just returned to NMS and just figured out how to use Lua, would be nice to have this merged with some other mods.

      Not so much, at least not anytime soon.  As an FYI, Palette change type MODs do not lend themselves well to being LUAized, which is why you don't see LUAs for any of them.  If done correctly, hundreds to thousands of individual unique changes that would need to be made in a multi-thousand line LUA.  Just one of the versions makes 59,904 changes in 14,976 blocks.

      Done, LUAs added.  The regular Expanse one just adds it's palettes to any existing in the files, so this is the one you want to use for combining.  Both Black and Hybrid will delete existing palettes before writing their own, so not good merging candidates.  The reasoning behind this is that Black being merged with any other palette mod for these files would ruin the dark intent and for Hybrid would really want to get JasonDude thought about it, but with the above LUA, you can make a patch MOD with JasonDudes SpaceColors, as an example.

    Wasn't there at one point in the description a mention of the odds of what kind of space you'd encounter?  I'm currently using the Hybrid version and I thought it listed black as about a 50/50 chance .. seems like that too. 

    Also confused why the file for Pure black says there's 384 colour patterns but the description says it's... all black.

      It's possible that at some point it listed a percentage chance, but I can't see description edits from before I started managing the MOD.  Changed Pure Black to Black on the front description page.  Not exactly Pure/All black as that would be very dull indeed.  Think darker.

      As it's really a palette replacement mod, it's for the most part, update proof.  It Should still work with Frontiers.  If not, please let me know.  :)

      Your welcome my friend.  Just want to do it justice.  :)  I will be issuing an update for Expanse soon.  Just to update the compilation with a current version of MBINCompiler and to update the version number, which makes it easier for me to track status.

    Oh no, is my favorite visual mod no longer working? :( I just reinstalled NMS after almost a year and was hoping to be able to use this again. It made a HUGE difference to the way I experienced space, felt so much more vast and lonely with all the blackness of the void staring back at me. I'm not a huge fan of the fruity Vanilla color palette, so if you ever find the time and motivation, I'd love for this mod to make a comeback with the current version. :)
