Instantly you've made this the best looking space game, and all in 2D glory!

Hi there,
If one extracts the landscapes.zip from lordxorn's mirror directly into the DW folder, as suggested by the OP, the structure's going to be wrong. It's \Images\landscapes\..., yet it should be \images\environment\landscapes\...

Rapidshare's acting up, so I don't know if that .zip has the same structure. It's not much of an issue of course, but I thought you guys should know anyhow. You never know just how literal some people will stick to the instrcutions [:'(]

Thanks.

how does such a drastic increase in texture sizes affect the game's performance?

I've noticed no affect to loading times or framerate.

Don't know when last Conflictx was on here. I hope he's still working on this as he's a very talented modder.

Probably not, as his last login was 4/23/2010.

well.. I combined this with some other GFX mods and started having out of memory crashes. uninstalling all GFX mods fixed it. it was on a 100 star game.
tm.asp?m=2473342

so, combining such mods is not a good idea right now... maybe when a 64bit exe is made (allowing you to use more than 2GB of ram per exe)

They should include this in the actual game!!!!


These planets *& pics are beautifull!


Would this be possible Erik????


Alot of the work is already done!

Plus it would go to making DW even more popular and adding even more impulse into the modding community & player base !

[:D]


EDIT:

Perhaps you could get an ingame ruin or monument named after you!

something like:

"Conflict's-End X"

Will there be any more planet gfx images like the ones in the screen shots above besides the barren rock planets?

ConflictX's last login was the 24th of April

I think we must assume, he is no longer interested, has the time or is no longer able to continue modding.

We don't know what happens to people in their day to day lives and I think out of respect we should leave this thread be.

With that said, I really hope ConflictX returns and has a good laugh at all this.[;)]

That was funny. I thought, "I'll d/l the barren rock planets to see what they are like". When I opened them up I discovered IT was me who did the mod in the first place, duh![:)]
Huh?

I was looking at a program called celestia the other day. Here's the link to the site :-

http://www.shatters.net/celestia/index.html

Check out the add-ons section. There's lots of stuff in there that could be 'imaged' and used for DW.

I'm not sure if I have the time to start modding planets, so if anyone else thinks this is a good idea, give it a try.
