Stellaris Performance Mod - DDS Texture Tweak

Description
For Stellaris 3.0

NOTE: THIS IS A STAND ALONE MOD. IT WILL WORK WITH OR WITHOUT THE REQUIRED ITEM.

A mod tweaks every dds file inside GFX/MODELS Folder

It should boost fps by atleast 15% or more. It reduces RAM/CPU and GPU load.

CURRENT VERSION: 5.0
-Updated to 3.0
-Added "Partial" (if not already full) Nemesis Support

Features
-Every DDS file inside the folder GFX/MODELS has been tweaked. This include the ff folder:
Models
add_ons
effects
combat_items
galaxy_map
planets
portraits
ships
system_map
ui

Every dds file EXCEPT the file on the PORTRAITS Folder has been modified by ÷2 ÷2.

Example: A DDS is 2048x2048 is converted into 1024x1024 then reconverted again to 512x512. This reduced thier resolution as well as file size, thus increasing the loading and maintaining of dds giving us more FPS ingame.
For the Portraits: I only reduce them by ÷2.


DLC Support:
-all dlc covered.

Mod Compatibility
-Any mod is compatible to this, this include mods like Human Variants, Remastered Human Portraits and such

Mod Load Order
-This mod load order does not matter. BUT if you want to make the mods above compatible, LOAD THEM AFTER this MOD.

@Everyone: He removed the other workshop page but he added my files on other workshop page. Kindly report this one too:
Again, I dont mind if you wanna take credit and say it's yours, but to make sure you're the one who converted those DDS files.
-The files in that mod are all the ones that I converted (Version 2.0 for 2.3) He just said it was 2.6.2 but no, Federations and Lithoids are not included it that, I downloaded that copy to fully check and he's just saying it's 2.6.2 upfront, which is a lie.

Authors note:
-I dont mind if people has the same mod idea as me, Feel free to create and post it. BUT DONT STEAL OTHER PEOPLES WORK. If you want to take credits for this, convert the DDS Yourself! @steamcommunity.com/id/fodidoman

I know you're reading this. If you want to take credit for that then do the conversion of dds yourself, dont steal other peoples work.

Support:
If you have spare coins or anything, pls feel free to donate so I could get more better equipments and/or buy better softwares like 3dmax or anything. I also do accept random steam games. Thanks in advance.

Updated for 3.0.* Should "partially" cover Nemisis DLC

(Alot of Nemisis Texture files are already ingame even tho I dont own the DLC, I do believe that it's the full files already but I still added the word "partially" incase I missed something and for a later date, I need to update it again)

@everyone: to the people expecting an update for this, it's currently on hold for a few days, I don't own Nemisis dlc but when I checked the files ingame, it seems that Nemisis texture files are already inside, for the reason why I'm not updating it now is because I'm switching gear/pc and currently in the process of backuping files. I'll resume mod uploads and update this coming Sunday. Sorry for the delays. But yeah, like my comment below, this will work but will currently not cover certain 3.0 texture files like from Nemisis dlc.

@everyone: This will work regardless of stellaris version number. The only thing that it will not cover is the newly added textures from the new dlc.

@Hero Tales It appears to work with 3.0.

At the very least, i'm not crashing or getting infinite windows. Can't confirm if it still has an effect or not.

Does this work with 3.0?

can I select some how to only have it dropped to 1024? think it would be enough and still would look good
