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

Are you planning on doing 1.2.1 anytime soon? I love the mod but not to found of the hubbles. They just seem so out of place in the game it kinda ruins it for me. A few friends who NEVER played the game also said the background looked "weird". Keep up the good work though.
