about
this mod replaces all of the existing planets and backgrounds and adds a lot more. (In version 1.2 are only 3 of the backgrounds taken from hubble, rest done by me, version 1.3+ adds 62 Hubble backgrounds)

after version 1.0
i'm pretty sure that i will add more planets and backgrounds, i tried not to add my complete space-art pictures... but i'm not sure... feel free to check out my deviantart gallery @ http://sanmonku.deviantart.com/gallery/24908419 , and let me know what you guys think of using any of my space-art pictures as backgrounds... i just feel it would be too much... since the game also would add planets over those images and it gets even more :D so let me know... (of course there could be 2 versions of the mod...)
