Understood, and the part about in-lore explaining was a half-joke - I never meant it to be explained in-game, just in player's brain
Well, somehow I'm attached to that proud green ASB mark, when I hack those planetary defenses to shot defenders, at the same time, ASB icon at first phase of hyperspace jump doesn't bother me at all, so I guess I'll keep my mini-mod overwrite
I like, very much, your more subtle glow on Creative Commons sign on main menu scree. Hoever, noticed few cosmetic issues, too:
1. Something strange happened to letters in music credits section - they seem "corroded", parts of letter are missing. It's most visible in "Y" (in "music by") and "A" (in AlienAqtor's nickname), but happened to many other letters - on less scale - too.
2. I noticed that you've restored the f8f8ff (reddish-white) color for FTL mark. I understand why you did it - menu items are f8f8ff too, and I must admit that it works better than ffffff for small-letter things, like CE contributors or music credits.
Hoever, the big "FTL: Captain's Edition" letters look a little strange with f8f8ff - probably, just because they're so big, especially "FTL" part. To be honest, I had to double-check that other things have same color - "FTL" part looks, subjectively, *much* more red'dish than everything else. Might be subjective, but I think that ffffff works better for that logo part.
Starting fresh run with glorious new CE release, expect some real bug reports in few days...
And before I forget again - the idea of a rare chance for starting crystal quest, thanks to on-board science lab, is awesome! It really fits there, and further helps to counter the fact, that so many new sectors lower chance of experiencing it "traditional" way.
