Splinter's Graphics Overhaul v4.5

(ver 4.5) This mod modifies the shaders.lua as well as some of the cvars for an enhanced viewing experience. Remember to give this mod relatively higher priority as well as turn all visual options (halos, post-processing, and bloom) to maximum for an optimal viewing experience.

In case of readability/foreign-language issues from the font modification, use to revert back to the original font.

For a very outdated but in-depth look at some of the shader changes, see

I found a bug where the more of a weapon type you put on a craft the less you can hear them. I have a laser craft where completely no sound comes out but on a ship with one laser I hear it just fine. can you see why this happens?

In my opinion, "Fields Expansion" has changes in graphics and effects. I would like to be sure that there is no conflict with your great mod. Thank. :cozybethesda:

Hmmm I haven't tested recently, but I think it should be "ok"
zloikrot Mar 25 @ 1:28pm 
Is it compatible with "Fields Expansion"?
Splinter  [author] Feb 9 @ 1:29am 
ah alright, good to know, I guess I might check it out sometime...

I said it because its not as of late, it crashes the game on startup if its set to beta
Splinter  [author] Feb 3 @ 5:22pm 
I think it's beta compatible, I don't think there should be any issues, but I haven't tested it with beta in a while.
Drag0n_Tam3r Feb 3 @ 1:23pm 

So uh, is there any way you could update this mod to be beta compatible?
Splinter  [author] Jan 30 @ 7:05pm 
I think it should work with both, but I haven't tested against those 2 in a while and things may have changed since then.

And, better question..

Would SGO conflict with the shader test/extra stars mods?
