Customization - 5/26/2014 11:43:10 PM

I made a custom graphic pack (based on GEM, Das ressources and other explosive stuff) and I noticed that some icons, specifically the minimap top-icons, are loaded... randomly... sometimes I see my theme icons, sometimes the game keeps its original icons.

I made sure the filename case was the same because apparently having a different case can make your custom pack fail.

The solution I found to fix this is to copy the files directly in Distant Worlds' main game folder.

Another problem : The saves are linked to the theme. In my case it's annoying because my theme is only graphical. Is it possible to tell DW to ignore the theme in its save?
There's also no error if the theme doesn't exist anymore when loading a previous save with a deleted or renamed customization folder.

Thank you!

Hi. If your theme is just graphical and you just want to tweak the graphics to your personal liking you might consider skipping the theme method and just replace the appropriate image files in the images folder. That way you don't have to worry about switching themes and DW will use your preferred images by default.
