For performance and memory related errors it is recommended to use the following Steam launch options: -mm_max_resource_size 100 -mm_max_tmp_buffers_size 1000 -mm_pool_size 8192 (in a common configuration with 16GB RAM)
ALSO I recommend to edit the following line in your config.cfg file:

Code: Select all

uset g_bloom "0"

Those aren't "minor" caveats (stretched skies, sound issues + others) and unlocking the mod will most likely upset the dev and we get **** all 1.38 version.

I think they are minor issues, I removed all unnecessary files, like sound and UI and works pretty much flawless now with the exception of the slightly stretched skybox, which honestly can't really be noticed in daylight, only noticeable at night due to the moon being a bit streched and low res. But most of the things that made NL great are still intact. As for the original moder, I don't see why he would have a problem, as long as people don't take advantage of his work through monetization or ripoff... I made this topic to draw attention of the fact that it can be done and everyone is free to do it for them self if they are interested in this mod.

yeah I gave it a try and removed the manifest sii seems to work fine.
I havent removed any sound files but I dont notice any distubng sounds.
As for doing this to the mod there are people explaining how to do this on the Naturalux forum going back to 1.37.
The developer has not given a sign of life on his own forum or the forum of promods for months now I think the project is pretty much dead so the only way to use Naturalux is this way.

The importance of the issues is subjective and I know that unlocking was heavily frowned upon by the NL dev and his guys. People already used it for monetization. As a big supporter of NL (it's the mod with the most and best features) I hope it gets updated but have no idea about it since the dev is MIA or is probably sick of it since the dl was a problem for many.

I'm sure a modder can update it to 1.38 properly but he'd need Kirill's permission.

I just tried fixing skybox material texture without touching skybox.pmg so (hopefully) it doesnt make skybox stretching.
