Replaces all Planets and Background images, and adds a lot more.

which version should you use?
1.2.1 includes only 3 hubble images the rest is made by me.
1.3.1 is the same as version 1.2.1 with 62 additional hubble images, that may be very color intense. In version 1.3.1 i made a lot of changes to hubble backgrounds, so you may not need your sunglasses anymore... ;P

If you have a clean installation of FTL you can just install slipstream mod manager, the mods and activate them.

If you're not sure that your FTL installation is clean keep reading.

go to

"\Steam\steamapps\common\FTL Faster Than Light\Slipstream Mod Manager v1.4-Win\backup"

and delete everything in the backup folder, if u activated any mods after the update, make sure your have the latest "data.dat" and "resource.dat"

if you're not sure, delete those 2 files in:

"\Steam\steamapps\common\FTL Faster Than Light\resources"

then verify game files (this will download the latest "data.dat" and "resource.dat" files) , start the mod manager and activate BetterPlanetsandBackgrounds 1.2.1 or 1.3.1 and optional better asteroids....

enjoy

This is the most dangerous of all mods I have tried. I cannot tell you the amount of damaged I have sustained while distracted by the amazing backgrounds and effects (asteroids)...

just tested the latest CE 1.204 with BPaB 1.3.1 and compatibility patch and it works on my end, so i have no idea what could cause this, and really 1.2.1 and 1.3.1 are almost the same...

so i can only guess... do you play on a laptop? any game overlays active? disable steam overlay? drivers up to date? same thing in fullscreen and window mode ?

that's what i can think of right now...

I was using CE 1.203 so I'll see if that does it and if not I'll try your other suggestions.
