Better Screens

From Elite Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search



Better Screens OXP is for players who like simple and un-cluttered GUI screens but don't like 'just black'. It adds a subtle textured background and a little detailing to all the in-game screens. These screens can be used in conjunction with BGS. You will find full instructions in the readme.

Please Note With Oolite v1.80, this Expansion is not working correctly with BGS on some screens, and is slightly broken with Oolite v1.81 (trunk). An updated version will be released soon.
