Even Thinner Borders

Alternative version of Thinner Borders which reduces empire graphical border width to 25% of vanilla.

Very simple mod which slightly modifies the patch 2.0 border shader file so that the new borders are roughly 25% of vanilla width.

While I like how Stellaris now has a seperate border coloured by empire secondary colours, I found the vanilla border too thick and made the game look very cluttered when zoomed out. This mod retains the zoom effect. As an added bonus I feel like it enhances the feeling of scale to the game.

Only downside seems to be that borders seem to overlap a little (see screenshots).

Ironman and achievement compatible!

Now updated for 2.1 and includes border colour swap so that your primary colour is your empire's inner colour.

My other mods:
Original Thinner Borders (50% reduction)
Unbiased Systems (True random galaxy/start)

How can I get the thin borders but NOT swap the primary and secondary colors?

will this be updated for 2.1 (to remove the warning) ?

It is, although to get a completely 1.9 style look there's other effects you'd have to remove such as border shadowing and zoom fade.

Ok. Is it possible to remove borders? To make it look like 1.9? Just wondering.

Was considering an Even Even Even Even Thinner Borders edition, but I think I might wait until 8K is standard so you can see the borders still. :P
