About this mod

An alternative freighter bridge layout inspired and mentored by JJ. Open front, stations at back, your officers sit next to you in the command center, you can even call up the galaxy map while sitting in the captain's chair.

Permissions and credits
This mod was inspired by JJs Bridge and many thanks to JJ for helping me make this mod.

Changes the layout of the freighter bridge to be less like a freighter and more like the galactic starship this should be! Beehive windows, a dual pilot station, automatic bridge doors and a command area for the navigator, the captain and YOU! 

NOTE: Due to game limitations, no buildable items can be placed on the bridge.

Recommended mod: Freighter Tractor Beam Glow works well with this mod and gives you a much cleaner view from the bridge.

Extract _AstrosBridge_4.04.pak from the zip file and put it in the No Man's Sky\GAMEDATA\PCBANKS\MODS folder. If you don't already have this folder, create it.
Rename the DISABLEMODS.TXT file from PCBANKS folder to something like DISABLEMODS_orig.TXT. To uninstall, just delete it from the MOD folder.
