From: The Briar Patch Nebula
Ok so I'm really excited to play this mod and have been ever since I bought Universe. However, every time I try to switch the theme to this mod, I get an error saying that the game couldn't load a race image. The exact file it says is "race_16" which is the Ferengi image. The file is under images\units\races. I've tried tinkering with it, and installing both Distant Worlds and the mod freshly to no avail. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
Sorry you're having a problem. I just sent you an email (please read first) and a personal message
with an attached zipfile containing a new "race_16" file.
It's my belief your race_16 file somehow got corrupted. Again, read my email.
Hopefully that solves your problem. If not, PM me. After some sleep I'll investigate it until it's
I had the exact same issue, the race_16 image failed to load.
So I took a random Ferengi picture from the net, removed the background, saved it as a png and put it in the race image folder.
That seems to have done the trick because the mod starts up without problems now.
No idea what caused the error in the first place though, the original image looked perfectly fine outside of the game.
On a different note, great job.
I'm not a Trekkie by any means but I appreciate a professionally done mod even if the setting isn't exactly my favorite.
Keep up the good work.
Thanks for the compliment DownTheDrain.
Haven't figured out this weird "race_16.png" file problem. Couldn't reproduce it on my end, everything
downloads from MediaFire, installs on my test machines and starts up and runs fine (screenshot below)
So I figure that IT MUST be that that particular file got corrupted during download or while being uncompressed somehow. Don't know why just you two players. One theory remains though. What type of decompression software are you both using. WinZip, WinRar, 7-Zip? Let me know. Nevertheless, I am sending you via PM a clean, uncorrupted race_16.png file. Please download and overwrite your Picard Era Ferengi race_16.png file. PM me today if it doesn't fix the problem. Thanks and hope this works!

Shields are useless in "The Briar Patch"...
