This is Re-Release of a plugin designed to reduce lag caused by foreground nebula's and Asteroid fields, it only removes non-static asteroids, it will not remove large asteroids or mine-able ones. - Original idea was by Mckorr, execution was performed by myself.

Code:
Asteroid and Nebula Removal Mod 1.1
Modification for SWG
by Geitiegg and Mckorr

------------------------------------

I. INTRODUCTION

This mod removes all the lag inducing nebulas, asteroids, and debris fields from space zones.  It does not affect the large asteroids which are physical obstacles, or the ones that can be mined.  It only removes the swarms of smaller asteroids and nebulas in an attempt to reduce lag in space.

------------------------------------

II. INSTALLATION

Extract the archive to your Star Wars Galaxies root directory.

Note: This mod will put folders with some files in the game directory
that will be used instead of the files in the game. No actual SWG game
files will be overwritten. You can only run part of the files or all of
them at once for the full experience. Read section three on which files
do what. Feel free to simply rename or delete the files you do not wish
to use from the appropriate folder of your SWG directory.

------------------------------------

III. UNINSTALLATION

To uninstall the mod, simply remove the files/folders that you extracted
at the installation of the Mod from your SWG directory.
Keep this readme file inside the SWG Folder in case you forget which
files have been installed with which mod and see section V. of this
readme for details on files included with this mod.

VI. KNOWN ISSUES

- Apparently some of the nebulas or nebula effects are not taken care of by the data tables, so there might be a few lingering around still.

------------------------------------

VII. MISCELLANEOUS

If new space zones are added this mod will not affect them.  It won't cause them to crash, but it also will not remove their space junk.  Those zones will have new data tables which will have to be extracted and edited.

------------------------------------

VIII. CREDITS

This mod would not have been possible without the development of TRE Explorer by GerricSablestar.  His excellent work opened the door for modifications to the game's data tables, letting us skip having to edit literally hundreds of texture and particle files.

Geitiegg did most of the leg work here.  It was Mckorr's idea to attempt editing the data tables, but it was Geitiegg who took took the time out to actually do it.  He deserves the lion's share of the credit.

Thanks go out to all the modders out there that have actively or
passively contributed to this mod!
Special thanks to the people at ModSource - YOUR source for SWG
modding stuff (mods.mandalorians.de) for initially hosting this mod.
