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

I've found that only version 1.2.1 works with CE, which is odd, and depressing, both mods are fantastic and I wish I could use the most recent version of this with CE.

I did in fact, when using 1.3.1 or 1.3 it brings me to a black screen with a yellow and black checker board at the top left of the window that then freezes when I do anything, both mods work individually from each other. And even with the compatibility patch I came up with the same result.

Windows 7. And I did also make sure that I had a clean installation of FTL so it can't be that.

plans yes, but nothing set in stone yet... black and white is boring right? not sure what colors to use, maybe something blueish? certainly no red/orange/yellow...
