This mod Downscales planets to have a more realistic look without changing the system scale, therefore preserving vannilla balance and gameplay.

I wanted to find a realistic scaling mod that does not change the system scale. This matters because as off Stellaris 2.0 ships need to cross entire systems to traverse the galaxy. To my suprise there where none, so I made this mod.


– Planet rings modified to be more visible due to dimming caused by downscale.

– Star scale slightly downscaled to look less cartoony compared to the downsized planets.

– Neutron stars, pulsars and black holes downscaled to look a bit more realistic.
