    cool, if it doesn't replace current player ships, i would be down for trying it out.
    have you considered putting out decorative addon objects similar to "More Tiles and Greebles"?
    also, some of the naming is a little off, such as Uranium stone, wouldn't that be called Ore? (i know your reviving the mod so its not on you for naming the stuff initially)

    This doesn't replace your ships at all. You'll have one of the many build-your-own ship type mods to do that. This would give you more things to build it from if you do. With your vanilla ships, I guess you could use these blocks to replace your background, etc. Things like thrusters aside, most of the mod can reasonably be used to build bases, etc. It isn't limited to ships at all.
    Both simulatoralive(the original author) and myself are fans of that mod. I also like nostalgic-greenery. There are a couple hylotl stuff mods out, and... I'm probably forgetting something good.

    There should be more furniture added eventually to this mod. Both interactive and decorative types. There are a lot of possibilities, so I'll just follow my inspiration you know. Plus I think a couple people are looking to add stuff into it.
    Uranium ore used to be an actual vanilla thing. Sadly removed. The uranium stone is embedding/coating the uranium into the stone(Alpha radiation not included). That's based off of how it used to look in game of course.
    looks like this

    But that's no fun, is it?
    Anyhow the original recipe called for stone and uranium ore. But the recipe had to be changed since they cruelly removed our uranium, plutonium, and other ionic friends.

    good responses, thank you! as a follow on, since the art style of the new stations is in line with that of ships, are you planning on representing station pieces in block form, for those that one to make planet side bases with that same theme?

    You mean you want to use the sloped metal? You can spawn that like this.
    Code:
    /admin
    /spawnitem slopedhullpanel 9999
    /admin
    
    Granted my stuff stacks to 9999 cause I modded it.

    Or do you mean changing tiles to a
    Yeah that's definitely something to do. I have my own configuration as it where. As part of another mod(that I need to update LOL), I have 2 degrees of lighter black glass. And I built my own material configuration a while back. I think I'd use mine over the vanilla one, and let me show you why.

    See where the vanilla hullpanel blocks hit the (classic material config) pressurized steel blocks? Kinda ugly. Compare to where it hits my glass. And as you can see, I also have a working slope. It also works well against their sloped blocks. So I'd probably go with my own config here. My config is going to require changes to all the PNG files for all the tiles that use it though, so that will be a minor pain but worth it. And what's more, my configuration looks like less of a spite sheet nightmare!

    Also I just accidentally found out you can post screenshots straight off the clipboard here :D I meant to post text, forgetting I copied the shot.

    ya, the slopped blocks are much nicer, i will def agree there. i am using "Dramatic Terrain" specifically for that reason, and your right that the vanilla blocks just don't look good by comparison. i honestly hadn't played around with the new 1.3 blocks that were added (my bad on that score).

    Well, maybe FU blocking it...
    I can craft compounds, platinum, force field, but I can't find glass trim on any version of furnace :(

    Don't know why, but I'm getting an error when I try to unzip this. I downloaded it twice, and both times I'm getting an "archive corrupted" warning about 3/4 of the way through the process. Any chance you can make this available as a regular zip file instead of a 7z?

    Download 7zip. That's pretty much the standard now. You can then right click on the file, and "extract here" etc. No need to even open anything up. Plus it makes for smaller sizes.

    I used 7zip, that's how I got the "archive corrupted" message. Both times. I guess it was probably Russian hackers messing with my downloads.

    I was hoping for a format that was more... native, and that doesn't require a special 3rd party program to use. This is the only mod I've encountered thus far that isn't a zip or pak file. No worries, though, thanks anyway.

    Maybe I'm just blind but I cannot seem to find the places to craft blocks like the Door Frame and Leather- I only found Fuel Gelatin and Screen blocks. I must find these things! I Thought I had every crafting table and I bought every single recipe blueprint. Help ;_;
