I'm running Entrenchment 1.41, and I'm fairly sure I installed it correctly, because the game did change particle effects. But two glaring issues instantly hit me. Firstly, whenever a structure or ship was damaged, instead of the smoke or fire or debris, it put out these white boxes. Whenever a ship would explode, a huge white box covers the whole explosion. Its still rendering the debris, fire, and smoke, and the explosions, but its all covered by these little cartoony boxes. Secondly, when I tested it out I was playing Advent, and in the course of the game I brought out a starbase. Well, as soon as I zoomed in enough for the starbase symbol-picture to replace with the actual starbase textures, the game slowed down *dramatically*. Beyond playability, and it was only at that planet, and any others with starbases. I know it isnt't my computer, cause that planet just had a starbase and some defenses, while at another planet I had 53 light frigates versus an entire Vasari fleet with 6-7 capital ships and a billion missiles flying, and it didn't slow down at all. Also, as soon as I disabled the mod, I could zoom in and out on the starbases at will, without any slow down. Please help, I loved the effects I could actually see, but I don't know what I did wrong. (I also never got a mini-dump, and the game never froze or shut down.)
Edit: I apologize, the starbase slowdown is unrelated to the mod. I did more testing and it appears to be the game not the mod. However, the more important texture issues are still there.
