About this mod

Pause menu Starry Background

Permissions and credits
Simple Mod that adds a Milky Way Background to the Pause menu instead of a Black Background.

If you're interested by this mod you can also try my new mod Starry Menu Backgrounds that adds several Starry backgrounds.

Installation :

Install with a Mod Manager (I'm using Vortex)


Manual Install
unpack the file in your game data folder, for example for steam c:\SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\Starfield.

EDIT : It seems to work in the My Games folder for some users, so if the mod does not work try installing in your My Games folder or your steam folder to fix the issue. I'll update if I get feedback.

The file modding the pause menu is Data\Interface\pausebackgroundassets.swf. To uninstall use your mod organizer or delete this file.
The file modding the tab menu is Data\Interface\datamenu.swf. To uninstall use your mod organizer or delete this file.

It's my first mod, hope you'll like it, let me know if it just works. Inspired by CRT - Main Menu (Nebula Loop) by SweeJ24 and Dreaming Star by Sklohe

Tools used : BAE, JPEXS Free Flash Decompiler and good old MS Paint.
