    [Excerpt from the Starship Heart of Gold's Sales brochure, by the Sirius Cybernetics Corporation]

    "Presenting the Starship Heart of Gold! Featuring The brand-new Infinite Improbability Drive!
    A wonderful new method of crossing vast interstellar distances in a mere nothingth of a second,
    without all that tedious mucking about in hyperspace. It was discovered by a lucky chance, and
    then developed into a governable form of propulsion by the Galactic Government’s research team
    on Damogran. Now you too can take advantage of this sensational new breakthrough in Improbability
    Physics! As soon as the ship’s drive reaches Infinite Improbability it passes through every point
    in the Universe simultaneously! All the doors in this spaceship have a cheerful and sunny disposition.
    It is their pleasure to open for you, and their satisfaction to close again with the knowledge of a
    job well done.
    Be the envy of other major governments!"

    The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy defines the marketing division of the Sirius Cybernetics
    Corporation as “a bunch of mindless jerks who’ll be the first against the wall when the revolution
    comes,” with a footnote to the effect that the editors would welcome applications from anyone
    interested in taking over the post of robotics correspondent.

    Button from the Hitchhiker's Guide Movie, and replaces the "FIND RANDOM" button with one that
    says "INFINTE IMPROBABILITY", so that you can relive your favourite Hitchhiker's Guide moments!

    do the modded characters work with this mod ?
    1. HitchhikerBros
      Author's Response
      By Modded characters I think you mean the custom races, am I right? The only element that would not work with custom races is the Heart of Gold ship mod. If so I think all you need to do is go into the "ships" folder and change one of the races to the name of the new race you would like to use the ship.

      So you would go into the Hitchhiker's Guide Mod Pack folder and go to ships > (choose race file) and rename it.

      ive watched the Hitchhikers Guide tv show, as well as the Dr. Who eps that he wrote, is ther a different TV show i wasnt aware of?

    Looks great! Nice work

    Version: 1.0
    Awesome mod! I re-rated this mod because after making all the items available in separated mods, which makes it much easier for multipayers, the author deserves five stars instead of the four I've given before.
    And again: for effort and idea I would give 42.
