Sorry if this has be asked before, I have limited seach ability here at work.
I love Igard's Picard Era Mod, and also love Martian's new Beautiful Landscapes Mod. Is there a way, without overwritting my Vanilla Legends folder, to incorporate both?
No Gargoil, just backup your (YourDrive letter):\Matrix Games\Distant Worlds\images\environment\landscapes directory in case you wish to return to the original landscapes. Once you overwrite the DW landscape files with Martian's, they will be used for the 'Vanilla' game, as well as any mod you run via the customization folder.
Just a note on this as well; If you have a program such as Paint.Net, Photoshop, etcetera available
to you, it helps if you 're-size' each of the files' dimensions down to 240 x 180, which is the
same size as the original files they replace. It will help on performance since the newer files
are more colored and detailed.
I suppose if I make a backup of both vanilla and the Mod, then when updating/expanding the game, I should flip back to vanilla landscapes, just in case the update has a change to go into that file. That is actually why I like keeping vanilla, well, vanilla.
