"Unexpected." - That's the first word in Joelteon's review of version 1.01 of Yacuzza's Midnight Universe mod.
Same thing came to my mind when I checked for new file submissions, considering that the much smaller version 1.01 of this mod was released just a week ago. More than doubled in size (from about 40MB to 90MB) this pack brings visuals of your Armada 2 installation to a new level, featuring:

- new planet and moon models
- new map backgrounds
- new asteroid fields
- comets
- new map editor assistant
- and much more.

What I don't like about it is the loss of online compatibility to stock 1.1 installations and the quite confusing installer, which could need some tweaking. But it's still must-have for all the other players out there Rock .

- TParis

Note: It's recommended to install this on a clean 1.1 version of A2. Those who are already using 1.0 or 1.01 of Midnight Universe have to remove these versions before installing this in order to make it work properly.

This may seem dumd but where does it install? I installed it wherever it went but even at the default location C/program files/Activision/Star Trek Armada 2 , I can't find any evidence it did install. Was there any "added" files that a stock game doesn't have?

Cancel my last post, I found it. I thought it was a direct install into Armada... I found it in it's own folder

It states that this mod can only be used in BC, KA, Armada and SFC yet it clearly uses Stock Legacy material, what gives?

The link you posted for the Lens Flare update is dead. It really adds quality to the game, any chance you can upload it again, please?
