^ Agreed. I'm currently using your mod and it looks much cooler than before.

Hey any chance of updating your mod to include support for: Distant Worlds Extended 1.0.1 with Das Chrome UI 1.4a mod Blue ?

He added a few custom components. Just curious... Thanks.

If you were to download the Extended Universe mod which is a compilation of Distant Worlds extended and a bunch of others it already comes with some of Sirian's mods including this one. It also should have Das's mod but a 1.3 version instead of 1.4 but it's easy to add it to it.

Hi! Good mod, but i have one question. When research finished we have massage and in window show small image researched technology, this image have bad quality, how fix this bad bug?




This is because the component images are sized 32x32 pixels. When these small images get enlarged the quality suffers. As I explained in the first post, the decision to do the component image set in 32x32 pixels and not 64x64 - which would be easier since the EVE icons are of this size - was the fact that in the Legends expansion, when I made the mod, the images got enlaged by a fixed rate regardless of their resolution in this very message window shown above leading to a completly unreadable message. I do not know if these images still get enlarged at a fixed rate for this window, but I might try it out. Some day.

Fixing this bug would mean having to do a completly new series in 64x64 pixels resolution.

Regards, Sirian

So I did a test and here is the result:



As you can see, the old 32x32 image scales far better to the resolutions where the icons are primarily used: the tech tree and the ship editor. That's where I need them. In both cases the icon is of far better quality. Then I actually researched something and saw what I saw back in Legends too: the image is still enlarged by a fixed value and so still goofs up the message screen.

So, this mod will stay at 32x32. Not only are the icons better at small sizes, and the message window cannot gain from the better quality image anyway.

Now back to my secret project.

Oh, to bad that isn't fixed. Maybe should report it as a bug in the support forum so it get noticed. Higher resolution and better scaling component images would be nice.
...

And interesting. :)

Here is the Distant Worlds Extended Universe compatible version of the mod.

Copy the content of the zip into the:
[your install directory]\Distant Worlds Universe\Customization\DW Extended Universe\images\ui\components
directory.

You will have to overwrite some files there. Backup these files or use the "original" folder included in this mod.
