A player requested me a Spacestation theme so I started from the background that seemed to me the hardest thing. It turned out to be simple instead but I couldn't find an idea to make a Spacestation theme work with all the terrain and objects stuff so I decided to keep the background as a stand alone background theme and then I made a Spacestation image map by tracing a stock image I found on google. I like the background theme and I really dont like the Spacestation map but I dont really care since noone plays image maps anyway.
I dont even ask this to be added in dlc page cause I think its not worth it (maybe the backgound theme its acceptable?). I will just leave it here in case someone want to download it.

Looks great, I like it!

Since MarsOrbit is a background theme, you should add hidden = yes to theme.cfg. Otherwise there will be an error message when the player tries to play with this theme on its own.

With that fix, I think it's still worth adding to DLC.

Alternatively, you can make MarsOrbit playable as standalone if you simply copy over the EarthRise land textures, but tinted brown (like the big rock in the background). We did a similar thing with the official background themes like DeepSpace. The theme would be rather minimalist, but playable.
