Colourable Asuran Ships [Mod Addon]
This is an addon/retexture of Frstwlf’s Asuran shipset mod.
It requires that mod, and will not work without it as I don’t want to plagiarise.
Why does this mod exist?
The Stargate ships are gorgeous, high-detail and industrial, so whether you watch Stargate or not many people use the ships.
However, they always display one appearance no matter how you set your empire up. With my growing ‘Colourable’ mod set, your ships take on warstripes, glowing windows and RTS-style painted armour.
Also as a bonus I changed the lighting config for this one shipset. Before, they looked almost black to see up close, and gain a magnitude fifty ambient light when zoomed out.
Less lore friendly, more patriotic!

– Engines will be the colour of your ship trail rather than default.
– Windows will glow your flag colour.
– Space patriotism feels good.
– Two empires using the same shipset will look visually distinct.
– More of an RTS-style feel, where your ships will take on your empire’s colour.
– Be able to differentiate your ships from an ally’s.
First update. Corvettes are way more patriotic, the battleships earned their stripes, science ships are less dark and I removed some of the artefacts in the base mod’s diffuse maps, making this technically more HD.
When If I upload a newer version some time, you’ll see a LOT more colouring. Most of the deep red panels will become coloured to your flag, and some ships will get warstripes like the Reptilian vanilla shipset.
I don’t feel like working on my Stargate ship retexture mods currently – I barely use the ships and I want to focus on new work… But there is no possible way update 2.2+ can break textures. So long as you have an updated shipset (and the uploader doesn’t even work on these himself any more), my changes WILL show up regardless of game version. Thanks.
