Jay's Stellaris Mods

A few people on the Stellaris subreddit keep saying they want a mod that just adds vanilla-art-friendly loading screens. None have had been made, so here is my mod for it!

I left 3 or 4 slots blank between vanilla and my loading screens, so other mods can put a title card in there.
If these are overwriting your mod's files, just mention it and I'll move them way down to like slot #100 or something!

I want this to be a large, compact and unified loading screen pack - So as long as the file size doesn't get ridiculous I'll add any Stellaris-looking art I find or edit up myself.
If you're an artist who can make art that fits the aesthetic I would be happy to add it, and credit you.

I've also included some base game screens edited by me, for a tiny bit more variety though not as much as brand new art.
I've moved the credits to the discussions below. However I'd still like to commend the vanilla artist: Kentaro Kanamoto.

4th August:
- Every load screen is now now compressed, to a nice *seventh* of the original file size. A small change per-user, but applies to everyone with the mod for a good total hard drive saving at no noticeable quality drop.
- Beautified one or two screens since last update, hiding pixelisation and brightening up the darkest one.

4th March:
- Moved slots down (more space for other mods.)
- Added 2 new screens.
- Replaced the ugliest screen with a nicer one by Jim Hatama.
- Almost all screens compressed - A reduction of up to 90% file size!
- Added manual bloom and covered up pixelation in existing screens.

I know modding is extremely slow right now but thanks for making this my fourth mod on popular files <3

Yeah sure, I'll slowly make them better as I go.
I think there's an upper limit to quality, but since starting the mod I found a way to kind of artificially HD-ify images in Photoshop with blurring, paint effects then sharpening.

I really like your mod. However, several images are blurred on my monitor, could you improve their quality?

ah thank you, not entirely sure what the NSC mod is but id assume the process to delete the screens would be similar with any other mod. I will look for your previous comment.

Firstly thanks. Secondly in response to your question I *might* not do a different version.
However in a lower comment I mentioned how to delete the NSC loading screens which is the mod most people don't like the screens from.

so just wondering if you would consider making a version that doesnt make room for other mods to add in their own screens, otherwise this looks awesome and ill probobly download it once i get home.

I'm very suspicious of it...

it even says is malicious...lmao, or is it ?
Trace Projectile  [author] Feb 6 @ 1:08pm 
Not sure why Steam thinks that's a URL but whatever.
Trace Projectile  [author] Feb 6 @ 1:07pm 
Nope! I moved the slots down a few, so other mods can fit their screens in.

Although if you want to get rid of the NSC screens on purpose, you can go to:
