⚠️ W A R N I N G ⚠️
ACG is a huge overhaul mod => don't treat it like a simple graphical mod that you can mix with any other mod you like => you can get an exceptionally good gameplay experience if you read this mod's description, follow the instructions and check out the compatibility list provided in the 🛠️ Compatibility Thread. Or you can get an exceptionally bad experience if you ignore it. If you encounter problems visit the ☎️ Bug Report/Help Service. Prior to asking questions check out the 📌 FAQ

TIP: How to get the best out of ACG
Try to minimize the amount of other mods you use with ACG => check out the features of ACG and then look if you really need all those other mods that you previously wanted to add to your playlist with ACG. One of the most common mistakes i see is that people use a lot of unnecessary mods that only cause issues. Also make sure to only use mods that are listed as compatible here: 🛠️ Compatibility Thread.

TIP: Watching Space Battles
This mod's cinematic features shine even more when using slow speed during watching Space Battles. Try it out.

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 early 2019 to share how i personally like to enjoy playing stellaris.

Combined with my old ACG mod (which works as foundation for this mod) i have spent 3000+ hours on working on this mod by now (ACG contains more than 200 folders and 7000 files). 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 a lot of feedback of users and many ideas and content of other great modders - reworked and refined it to fit into my personal taste. Without such a great community and helpful modders this mod would never have been possible.

About this mod
This mod is built on 4 pillars:

1. Immersive, Cinematic Graphics
2. Improved Performance
3. New Content
4. Better Balance and Progression

Graphics will be more realistic and cinematic with significant performance improvements included. Only added new content that the AI can use properly. High focus on a well-balanced and smooth gameplay progression. Nothing really overpowered is added with this mod.

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.

If you have questions regarding compatibility then please take a look at the compatibility list, which includes hundreds of mods and can be found in the 🛠️ compatibility thread. If you can't find your desired mods in the compatibility list then let us know and we will check them for you! You can also use the 🛠️ compatibility thread to ask for compatibility patches with incompatible mods. You can find several comp. patches included in the compatibility list within the 🛠️ compatibility thread and Revert-submods/addon patches in the 📌 FAQ / Addon Patches
