It seems like all you ever are is "miffed a bit"
Words of advice: you wont get very far on these forums acting like a goon firing up to fight when the slightest thing goes wrong. People here will help you, because they are nice, but you wont be very popular and eventually people will just ignore you.
Now, from what i read from his Mod page, i cannot tell if his mod has been updated for 1.041, although it should be as the changes werent that massive. If his mod hasnt been updated to 1.041 compatible, that could be causing your problem. You should ask him.
These are the instruction from his mod page:
Verified to work with Volumetric Explosions and Bailknights for Entrenchment. Priority order, top to bottom: 1) SG-Races, 2) PlanetSize, 3) FleetSize, 4) Volumetric, 5) Bailknight's.
If you are using SGGalaxy then you may stack it with the FleetSize mod as follows: 1) SGGalaxy, 2) FleetSize, 3) Volumetric, 4) Bailknight's.
Basically, if you download the SG-Races file, then you need to download the others mentioned in the first instruction line, if you download SG-Galaxy, then you need to download the other mods mentioned in the second instruction line, then have them implemented in the order stated.
so, for instance, if using SG-Galaxy, you need to implement Bailknight's mod first (so its at the bottom), then Volumetric Effects, then Fleet Size then SGGalaxy so that it is the top mod, and that all the mods appear in the order in the instructions.
Lastly, its stupid but relevant, but make sure you click Apply at the end of it all, because the mods wont activate unless you do so.
Good Luck, and Calm Down
