About this mod

Makes space darker

Permissions and credits
This mod is a first step in my attempt to recreate Space Dream.

As this mod is only touching space color, I prefer to release it as a standalone mod that you will be able to combine (or not) with any other mod and that will be eventually integrated into a all-in-one Space Dream again.

So this mod is released in 3 versions :
- a pure black space version
- a black space version keeping original nebulae tint
- a darker space version where space is slightly tinted and nebulae are darker (see the 2nd picture)

It also adds the following changes :
- makes stars visible through nebulae
- makes star size a little more diverse to increase depth
- reduces nebulae pixelization (only minor drwaback : very crisp hauler and fighter cockpit glass highlight)
- includes True Lighting 1.3 to fix infinite sky lighting and tinted filter from closest planet

optional :
- remove space dust and/or space plasma with No Space Dust

Credits :
  black space credits goes to jeveir and Rapta, the original creators of Dark Space

history :

v1.7 : updated for 1.75 game version (Visions)

Compatibility :
- You can find if this mod is compatible with latest game version on this page
- This mod is not compatible with LawnReality's Crescent Worlds
If you want to benefit from both, either use Space Dream or do the following :
  - download Crescent Worlds and unzip it
  - only keep the black space compatible version
  - remove the initial "_" from the name of this special .pak file
  - copy any Black Space .pak version and Crescent worlds .pak compatible version in your MOD folder
