Using Better Planets and Backgrounds 1.3 together with Infinite Space 0.3.2 results in a runtime error, unfortunately. Just fyi.

I'm trying to install this mod. Using Linux/Ubuntu. However when trying to run GMM, I get this error message in the terminal:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "main.py", line 417, in <module>
allowzip = cfg.getboolean("settings", "allowzip")
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/ConfigParser.py", line 368, in getboolean
v = self.get(section, option)
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/ConfigParser.py", line 607, in get
raise NoSectionError(section)
ConfigParser.NoSectionError: No section: 'settings'

Then when trying to patch using Wine, modman.exe crashes and I get another error:

@Bubbacubba, the download is packed in a 7zip file you have to extract it and then you will get a ftl file, i assume mac can handle 7z files...? if not check http://www.7-zip.org/download.html

@freedomclub, sorry can't help you with that :\ do you get this with 1.2 and 1.3 ? do you use other mods and get those errors only from mine ?

@VanguardOfValor, if you use it only in lets plays i don't see any problems

@Weltall Zero, i don't know yet... but i think if splette would be interested in this, it would be better we just do it, in case of updates etc...

@groznij, didn't had the time yet to look into that, but thanks for the info.

For some reason, 7zip isn't working, can you just make it a .zip file, for us Mac users

for further releases i'll look into that... but re-uploading just to change the file format takes to long..

also, working on the asteroid replacement... WIP -> screenshot
i think the field itself is pretty ok... but not sure yet about contrast etc... let me know what you guys think...

btw: this asteroid addon will be optional
btw2: by now there are only 2 textures replaced, in the background almost not visible you can make out the original texture...

Great mod. I installed it a while and the backgrounds are lovely. The only problem I have is that it seems to make the "virtual memory running" low thing pop up (it's got more images than YOUR COMPUTER HAS ROOM FOR!). I haven't seen that thing in years.
