Description
REQUIRE HIGH GRAPHICS QUALITY TO WORK
WORKS AS ADDON OR STANDALONE








This addon brings the cosmic quadrant in your galaxy view.
The quadrant consist of 4 circles rotating slowly around the galactic core, demarcating 4 different areas:
- The deep core, uninhabitable and hostile area.
- The outer core, where life can thrive, but is still very much in the core area.
- The inner rim, as star density gets lower, we enter the rim area, that's where the sun would be.
- The outer rim, the remote area where stars slowly give ground to cold empty space. This area is empty for any galaxy < 600 stars.
The quadrant also comes with some measurement, from 0 to 20 kpc (kiloparsec). A 1000 stars galaxy is around 40 kiloparsec in diameter, which a bit larger than our own milky way (~35 kpc), while a 400 stars will be less than 30 kpc.

The original mod is no longer required, but recommended:




Achievment compatible.

Compatible with any mod that does not alter the "default_galaxy_center_entity".

KNOWN BUGS :
- Every time a portrait is active on screen when player is on galaxy view, the entities incorporated by this mod disappear. This include tabs such as governement/contact/sectors, and fleets with leaders, such as military or science ships. Closing the tab/fleet resolve the issue.
- Opening the ship designer in galaxy view make animated parts of the mod (galactic core, companion galaxies, quadrant) to spin VERY fast. Closing it resolve the issue.



  • 1.0.1:
    - Fixed missing texture.
    - Quadrant & L cluster can now be used as standalone, although they'll give some (harmless) warnings in the log.

Tried everything, can't seem to get it to work. Nothing shows up in galaxy view.

Don't know why but it doesn't show up anymore on the galaxy view.. :/

Hey, Dwaine, I think I have a solution for you.
Instead of attaching the quadrant as an entity, try adding it as a particle. Yeah, one giant particle. Surprisingly, it works very well:
Shows up on low graphical settings, doesn't disappear when you select a planet, doesn't spin like mad in the ship designer. The rings do reset their position when you open the designer or enter a system, but it's way less noticable.
Here, I packaged it in a mod (and also cleaned the rings from white pixels). I can host it myself until/unless you update it.

Does it also work with custom galaxy mods?

The ability to toggle the text on or off (or make the font smaller and/or make it rotate with the rest of the graphic) would mucho improvo. I sometimes restart just because my home system is right in the middle of a letter which feels lame.

I've discovered that the overlay disappears whenever a species portrait is showing (like in the Planet Menu, Species Menu, etc.) Hope that helps.

Little bug: If you open fleet designer. It begins to spin very fast.

the white dots all along the edge, is that intentional? Or an artifact?

Great mod. Though everytime I open up the planet menu the reskin just disappears and is really annoying to look at. Is there anyway to fix this? Thanks for the great mod.
