Milky Way Galaxy Texture

This mod simply replaces the original Skyrim galaxy texture with an actual image of our own Milky Way galaxy. The rest of the sky elements (stars, auroras, moons) remain vanilla and function as they normally do.

This mod should also work with any other mod as long as it doesn't modify the galaxy's functionality or texture.

v1.2 - More color tweaks.

v1.1 - Sourced a higher resolution texture, cleaned up and tweaked the color values.

v1.0 - Release.

Out in the desert, far from city lights, you can almost see the Milky Way like this. But, we are not on Earth in Skyrim. Two moons, different sky. Maybe Nirn is a bit closer to the center of the galaxy than Earth. The galaxy makes the night sky so distractingly beautiful (I find myself sometimes stopping for a moment--to let my stamina replenish, yeah, that's it--and viewing the sky. Fabulous texture. May have to update the moons next (I notice that vanilla Masser looks like it is a modified version of Mars. You can even see Valles Marineris--so definitely a modified Mars, not that that is necessarily a bad thing!)

Okay, you made a great galaxy (I'm pro designer); but... is it realistic? I mean... as Dragonborn/player, you supposed to WALKING ON THE EARTH and looking to the sky, you see the stars... This textures of yours, looks like you're playing... "ELITE DANGEROUS" and you're watching the galaxy through your HUD of your cockpit!

I mean... it's not realistic SOOO MUCH detail of the sky, even during great nights & atmosphere. You (anybody) won't be able to see THAT KIND of galaxy's details, with your own eyes, from the ground...

...Otherwise, are great textures.

PLEASE port this, this is seriously one of my favorite mods! The sky looks like it has a white film over it :(

Are you going to port this over to SSE?

If you have bad quality it could be another mod, bad graphics settings, or low end GPU (nVidia has highest render quality in industry for at least last 5 years).
