About the Mod:

This mod gives you the option of 62 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 62 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 and Astronomy Picture of the Day. I have added a few art images on the insistancce of daughter :) These should not be taken seriously.

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

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


Future Plans:

Future versions of this mod will incorporate automatic cycling of these textures

there is no issue in my knowledge about starts showing through the moons- the moons are different textures and there is unlikely to be such a problem. Why do you think there is such an issue?

I'm wondering what mod is better (assuming you've used both) this mod, or the sky nebulas mod (which I believe comes in four different varities, 512x512, 1024x1024, 2024x2024, and 4096x2024)?

The pictures are beautiful. I'm glad this mod came with .jpg files because now I can save those pictures on my computer and place them in my 'slideshow' screensaver. big grin I couldn't seem to get them to work though. Can you only do one at a time, or rename the files and place them all at once? 10/10 for effort, pure genius, and beautiful .jpeg's smile

Apologies for the delay in this reply- just noticed your comment- was checking the comments for ver 1.3 of this mod (which is the newer version- link is near the top of this page). In fact I released version 2.0 on TES Nexus a few days ago. There is now a mod called SkyCycling (at TES Nexus) which will automatically cycle these textures as you play the game. This greatly enhances your experience.

I will certainly update the mod to 2.0 at this site as well- though I may update to 2.1 as the next version is nearly ready.

SkyCycling is by Sycamore and I can request him to upload his mod here as well.

About the .jpg images- well these images have been resized to a very small size at low quality, and are meant for selection purposes. The original images (and the textures) are of much superior quality. I recommended getting a program like DDS Converter and converting the actual texture files (.dds) to .jpg- this will give you very good quality larger images to use for your screensaver
