A simple modification of the UI based on Raapys's DarkUI Mod. It is currently under development. The mod makes UI more uniform, with black/grey and blue colors as predominant. It does not modify planet textures, ships, race styles etc. (The posted screenshots are taken from SE V utilising Captain Kwok's Balance Mod.)

As of now, things that have been modified/added are:

  • Changed all window pics
  • Revamped decorational items in misc windows
  • Main window buttons have been replaced
  • A couple of icons embedded to the UI windows (minister, atmosphere/planet type)replaced
  • Scrollers and checkers
  • HUD Planet/Base status icons
  • Smoothened column icons

Nice work !
The game really deserved a new UI, the original one is so kitsch ! ^^

To be honest I dream of a completly flat, classy clean UI for this game (more futuristic in my opinion than all of the round and bump stuffs), but I looked at the pictures files and it would require an incredible amout of work, all would have to be completly redone in fact...

So, thanks a lot for your work, the game is really more pleasant with your UI :)
