This mod is the successor mod of Aesthetic Cinematic Graphics. I am basically working on ACG almost since vanilla but just decided to make the first ACG mod public in 2019 to share how i personally like to enjoy playing stellaris.

It took me almost half a year and 400+ hours to work on this successor mod’s first release. Combined with my old ACG mod (which works as foundation for this mod) i have spent 2000+ hours on this mod by now. Graphical finetuning + Performance improvements alone took hundreds of hours and the time and thoughts that i spent on this mod is just growing because i continue improving and working on this mod constantly.

Nonetheless it’s very important to note that this mod is by no means my work alone. I have built this mod upon many ideas and content of other great modders – reworked, refined and tuned it to fit into my personal taste.

About this mod

This mod is built on 4 pillars:

1. Immersive Graphics
2. + Performance
3. New Content
4. + Balance

There are many graphic and content mods on the workshop but most of them are focused around one single aspect of the game. By restricting yourself on one aspect of the game the risk of causing imbalance, bugs or inconsistencies increases dramatically with each mod you add to your mod’s list. This mod tries to avoid that by offering one consistent graphical overhaul incl. new balanced, performance adjusted content.


You can’t find a mod in the compatible mods list? No problem. Just let me know in the compatibility thread and i will check them for you! You can also use the compatibility thread to ask for compatibility patches with incompatible mods! πŸ™‚

Any further questions? Please check out the FAQ first – thanks πŸ™‚
