Backgrounds+ Loading Screens

60+ brand new loading screens for your Stellaris experience!

This is a purely visual mod, and in such, there is a 0.00001% chance that any patch update would break the mod. If the game marks it as incompatible with a specific version, I have simply not yet updated the mod. It is still completely usable.


Feeling bored with the default loading screens and menu background of Stellaris? Or maybe you have a mod that installs some new ones, but they are just not that great?

Well, whatever your case, this mod can cure you; adding over 60 (63 to be exact... but, whatever) brand new backgrounds for the Stellaris loading screens.


I don't want this one background?
Go through the instructions on 'How to Remove Loading Screens You Don't Want' to stop a certain background from appearing.

Is it Ironman / achievement compatible?
✔ - Yes, this mod is completely compatible to earn you achievements if you play with it—on any game version.

Can I have the vanilla backgrounds too?
Please see this mod.

Am I able to download any of the backgrounds?
All images & artwork are made by artist Vadim Sadovski. Check out his work and download the images here[].


All images & artwork are made by Vadim Sadovski[], and converted for Stellaris by EliteCthulhu. I, in no way, shape or form own any credit to the making of the images used within the mod.

If you like the mod, make sure to rate it and favorite it!

Hello.How can I use those background as wallpaper?

Both, this replaces the vanilla backgrounds and adds to the pool of modded images from which the game chooses loading screens.

Does this replace the vanilla loading screens or just add to the pool of images the game uses?

Oh the name is backgrounds+ and it isnt backgrounds + something else. Yeah got it now. Confirms I at least subscribed to the correct mod after all, lol.

@TehFocus I still don't think you get it. :P

'Backgrounds+ Loading Screens' (this mod) only changes the loading screens. Meanwhile, another one of my mods, 'Backgrounds+ Planetview' changes only the planetview backgrounds. There is no co-dependency between the two mods and not one is required by the other (this is the same for all Backgrounds+ mods).

'Backgrounds+' is simply the name of series of mods that I make that backgrounds throughout the game.

'Backgrounds+ Collection' is the mod that combines all of the Backgrounds+ mods into one, for the people who are looking for such a thing, however that mod does not require a subscription to all other mods.

Oh now I see, they are more like.. addon combinations. Would have made more sense to make one pack for each application as this is really confusing

@TehFocus I am confused by your question...

This is the only publishment of 'Backgrounds+ Loading Screens', the mod that changes the loading screens. My other mods change other backgrounds (says so in their tittles) along with 'Backgrounds+ Collection' which just bundles all of my Backgrounds+ mods.
