Planet Overhaul and NPC ships on Planets
I think the SE planets really needs ME planet touch. I love the textures,terrain with roads, and the landmarks they made and beautiful trees and plants they have. SE planets been around for such a long time I feel like they need to be updated. You could keep the old ones and make a new scenario with the new planets.
I feel like the planets are empty and need something to make it interesting. I use this PVE style mod https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1284658378&searchtext=npc and I just love raiding these ships, looking at them while they fly past or if I feel like it hijack these ships and make it my own which is kinda hard but worth it! I think it would really make the planets feel a bit more alive with NPCs flying around.
