Stellaris Performance Mod - Galaxy Dust Tweak

Description
FOR STELLARIS 3.0

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

A Mod the changes the dust.dds as well as anything related to galaxy dust and Nebula dust

The changes are minimal compared to the gfx dds tweak, I tried to balance performance and visual on this one. You can still see your border as well as vassals and such compared to the old dust tweak I made. (2.1.3 if you remember)

This should increase your fps by 2-8 or even more.

Changes
-Reduce the dust.dds resolution by half
-Increase size of dust when being rendered ingame to 40
-Max dust.dds per star system is limited to 1. (This settings reduces the ram/cpu load because instead of loading multiple dds file per star system, it'll only load 1 thus less ram/cpu load)
-Max Nedbula dds change to 1 (Same boost as said above. cpu/ram)
-Nebula size increased to 30
-Removed rotation settings to galaxy dust.


OTHER PERFORMANCE MOD:
Stellaris Performance Mod - DDS Texture Tweak

I tried your other mod and only this one is not Ironman/Achivement compatible unfortunately. Can you do something about it?

your mods have been a lifesaver! I can now run stellaris with a whole list of different mods, so thanks!

Should work fine for 2.7. regardless of the red mark of the launcher.

@Rocket Grunt: I think I know the cause, it's probably because of the define text file, maybe on earlier version stellaris allow it to modify and allow mp but now it maybe not, I cant do anything about it, galaxy tweaks are located on it, sry.

Maybe 2.6 considers some files more relevant now and therefor marks it as modified? It really annoys me, without your mod most of my multiplayer games are spent zoomed in all the way in a system for performance reasons. :steamfacepalm:

It still works completely fine in singleplayer games, but I can't join or host servers for people without the mod. Maybe somebody else could confirm? Could still be an issue of corrupt files on my end for all I know.

Rocket Grunt: hmm weird, I didnt update any files because 2.6 didnt change any of them, I just updated the version numbers tho.

The recent version seems to change the md5 checksum of the game. I can't play ironman or multiplayer with it enabled, the other performance mods (normal, dds texture tweak) work fine.
