I tried it and it seems to work. So far I only see that resource spawning would need to be tweaked, large patches spawn above ground (not supposed to) meanwhile only regular resources spawn below ground (copper iron stone coal oil uranium). Might have some other bugs. I never actually played those mods before.
If you want you can host a game and when I'm free we can both play.
I didn't make the mod though, I'm just spreading awareness. The guy who created it no longer played Factorio for quite some time. But I can tweak the mod as much as I can though.
