Well, we're not hardware people, so we only know the theory.

Welcome to the most ambitious version of The Ur-Quan Masters MegaMod!

The changes are too many to list so I'll just go with a few of my favorites...

* The HD UI has been completely overhauled to look just like Vanilla UQM, but in HD.
* Some alien conversation artwork as been remastered (Most notably Cdr. Hayes)
* Recreated all the UI fonts (not the alien fonts) for HD, they can be found in the repository (https://github.com/Serosis/UQM-MegaMod/tree/0.8.1/doc/fonts) in TTF and OTF format
* New Flagship, modules, and lander graphics created by Jordan Lo
* Show visited stars on the StarMap by dimming the visited star and putting parenthesis around its name
* Kruzen recreated the PC-DOS planet scan and lander view
* Found a way to generate 3DO planet textures and PC-DOS/3DO mineral amounts and placements in the default seed
* New option that makes auto-pilot find the shortest way out of the solar system
* Kruzen reimplemented the "read speed" DOS option when not using voices
* Kruzen recreated the Constellation Map but now it is drawn in-engine so you can now zoom in and out
* Added a "Known Homeworlds" map that shows homeworlds based on the information you've received

And so much more! For a full comprehensive list of changes check out the changelog (https://github.com/Serosis/UQM-MegaMod/blob/0.8.1/doc/release/CHANGELOG.txt), or if you prefer it in web page form check out the main website: http://megamod.serosis.net/Features

And as always everything is optional

Remember that all optional addon packages can be downloaded at http://megamod.serosis.net/Releases

The macOS package will be done after New Years, some time mid-January at the latest.

Wow! Finally we have HD graphics that actually look like, well, UQM. The old HD graphics looked completely wrong in so many places, the flagship and the menus especially.
