Completely overhaul all Stellaris backgrounds!


As per a few requests, here is the entire collection of my Backgrounds+ mod series (I guess?), all bundled up in one neat package. I don’t expect this to become popular, but it is a small ‘quality of life’ improvement for a few people, so I will still update it and what not.


If you wish to remove the loading screen backgrounds from another mod, as to only have the backgrounds from this mod appear, please see this discussion guide: ‘How to Remove Loading Screens You Don’t Want’.


This is a purely visual mod, and in such, there is only a 0.01% chance that any patch update would break the mod.

Basic Compability

⠀⠀⠀✔⠀⠀⠀⠀   Iron-Man Mode Compatible
⠀⠀⠀✔⠀⠀⠀⠀   Achievements Compatible

⠀⠀⠀✘⠀⠀⠀⠀   Stellaris 2.0 Edition Compatible
⠀⠀⠀✔⠀⠀⠀⠀   Stellaris 2.1+ Edition Compatible

Advanced Compability

  • This mod should be compatible with pretty much everything that does not edit the vanilla "event_pictures" files.
  • If a mod that adds new event pictures and anomaly pictures that does not edit the vanilla ones and just adds files used by the mod, everything should be okay.
  • Also, if a mod uses vanilla "event_pictures" files, then that change will be reflected by the mod. —- ie. the More Events Mod, uses the vanilla "event_pictures" and so, with this mod installed, would use the ones from the mod, which may conflict in context.

I don’t want this one background?
Go through the instructions on ‘How to Remove Loading Screens You Don’t Want’ to stop a certain background from appearing.

Can I have the vanilla backgrounds too?
Please see this mod.

Am I able to download any of the backgrounds myself?
