I've been playing DW:U for years. Over time, I've collected many different effects and animations. A lot of these are no longer available. I'd like to share them.
I'll list as many authors as I can remember below. If you see your work and I haven't given you credit or you would like me to take down your portion of this community effects pack, please reply or let me know. It is not my intent to snub anyone by not mentioning them.
Download the DWU Community Effects Pack
1. Download the zip file above.
2. Back up the mod folder you intend to use this pack with.
3. Extract into your mod folder of choice, overwrite when prompted.
1. Go into your backup mod folder (you did backup, right)?
2. Copy the /images folder from the backup
3. Paste into the mod folder you're uninstalling from, overwrite when prompted.
Here are some of the goodies in the Effects Pack
// New Star Animation by ???
Don't remember where I got this, but it looks hella good.
// Shield effect by ???
Subtle, but gives a great Star Trek like vibe to shield strikes. Makes a big difference in game.
// Flagshapes!!! by ???
Whether you love Eve, Star Trek or Star Wars...plenty of Flagshapes to fill out your imperial needs.
// Weapons Effects by ???
Slightly altered and more subdued. Nevertheless, they look great! The new hyperdeny effect is especially cool, IMO.
// Galaxy Backdrop by NASA
// Eve Components by Sirian
Looks great. I've never played without these.
// Races by ???
Some wonderful portraits here. Happy to link to the original post once someone is kind enough to remind me of the author :)
// Landscapes and Facilities ???
All manner of pretty pretty landscapes and planetary facilities.
// Also included...
...ship assets from Kalthaniell's Shipyard
...UI components from Das Chrome
Thanks again for this wonderful community in keeping Distant Worlds as my favorite 4X game!
