Really nice interface.
The Nouveaunians look interesting.

I wasn't getting any sound.

The game would crash after five minutes of play.

I will keep trying to play further, but it looks good so far.

Default Re: new mod: Expeditions

i do some testing at work, so it probably has all the audio set to 0; didn't realize that that would carry over. I haven't added anything music/sound wise, though; just what was needed for the minelayer device.

i'm not sure what's causing the crash, but i get it too. sometimes on the very first star i go to:<. let me know if you figure anything out.

It crashes for me as well. The first time through I was able to visit several planets. The second time it crashed on the first planet I tried to visit.

I did a few things to prevent it from crashing:
1) Changed all letters to lower-case for files and folders.
2) Removed blank lines from between items of the same category in the game.ini file.

After those changes, it stopped crashing and sound came back.

I didn't have a problem with the sound. I just turned it back up because it had been turned all the way down.

Okay, I changed all the filenames to lowercase and removed the blank lines within the categories in game.ini and now the game crashes either while I'm selecting the ship, galaxy size, etc. or when I get the mission briefing.

I tried to delete game.cfg and that didn't help.

A verbose showed that it was failing to find files that I had renamed to all lowercase, so I deleted the Expeditions directory and the extracted it again and just made the changes to game.ini and renamed the GameData, Graphics, and Sounds directories to all lower case. Now it's back to the previous crash. Here's some of the errors and warnings I see when using "-verbose":
