About the Mod:

This mod gives you the option of 38 new textures for the night sky.
These are mostly NASA and Hubble images of Nebulae and Galaxies.



You need to replace one texture. There is no .esp to activate. The texture for the night sky is present in the folder: Oblivion/Data/Textures/Sky and is named:


For users of Natural Environments, this texture resides in: Oblivion/Data/Textures/NaturalEnvironments/Sky.
Please back up this file (optional).

Unzip this mod to a folder on your hard drive. This will create a set of 38 folders named for the nebula/galaxy used to create the replacement texture.
Each of these folders will have two files: a jpg image of the nebula/galaxy, and a corresponding skynebula01.dds texture.
The jpg images are also present in the main folder to aid selection.

To use the textures, copy the desired skynebula01.dds texture and paste it into: Oblivion/Data/Textures/Sky. Say "Yes" when asked to overwrite the existing file.

To use a different texture copy the desired skynebula01.dds file into Oblivion/Data/Textures/Sky.



This mod was inspired by: Sky Candy by Cordwainer http://www.tesnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=15136

The images are mostly from the archives of NASA and Hubble. I have added a few art images on the insistence of my daughter :) These are small files, and should not be taken seriously.

I used Paint, Microsoft Office Picture Manager and DDS Convector to manipulate the images.

You may use these textures as you wish. Please inform me (samroski@gmail.com) if possible.

I agree with #1 , good idea but some issues. I may do some editing of these for personal use though because the idea is interesting... I always though the sky was bland. I'm sure future versions will only get better so keep at it smile

Yes- some of the nebulae are quite big- which some users may find unrealistic. I am working on adding more galaxies- and possibly having a sky with multiple smallish galaxies/nebulae
Thanks for the comments

Some of the nebulae are big. tee hee.
I think it's an awesome mod. It makes the nighttime in cyrodil way more interesting. Definitely worth DLing.
