I just started playing this mod tonight.

Endless mode is exactly the way I wanted to play this game, so thanks for making it.

Some of the ships you face in the first sector are fairly advanced, you were not kidding about knowing when to run.

I imagine I'll have more comments in a few days, as I'm not very deep in yet.

It adds immersion, but can only look correct for one type of background. So if I do these event specific backgrounds, but go back to original graphics, than anyone using a background mod will see a clearly "out of place" background for those events.


It figures that I take the weekend off and a tempest forms in the teapot! ;)

I like the idea of event specific backgrounds, and if committing to a specific alternate background set is what it takes to get it off the ground, then so be it. The non-issue of d/l size only applies to those that are still on dial-up, so we're clearly talking about a smallish group. Any other resistance seems to fall into the realm of personal preference (i.e. "I prefer this background set to that background set.")

Besides, if the concept plays out the way you think it will, you can always go back and explore alternative background sources/techniques. Could the vanilla backgrounds be modified by another artist, for example?

Of all the mods that are attempting a complete rewrite of the game content, I'd say this one has the best shot, so keep on keepin on...

I, for one, will be along for the ride,

FWIW, I love hi-res backgrounds, I always play with them included, and I'd be very happy to see any mod include hi-res backgrounds (as long as the original mod's author is OK with them being included).

Alright, noob question time.

There's no .ftl file in this, how do I get GMM to detect and run it?

Copy the downloaded file into your mods folder. It is .ftl but windows is hiding filename extensions from you.

@widde, Sorry to hear that. Are you using other mods, and if so which ones? I'll test the event again and see if I can reproduce the issue. I did some changes to the rewards, and that could be causing it. I won't be ale to to get this today, but will try and work on it as soon as possible.

*EDIT: Are you using mod version 0.4.2?

Quick question as I haven't noticed it in the OP.

Does this disable achievements? Do you think it would be possible to implement it in a different clickable menu?

Anyway, this looks really good, I'm looking forward to seeing this grow.
Played 11 hours. Still haven't beaten the Flagship.
