Immersive Galaxy - Nightfall


After reading a post on reddit about night lights, and more specifically how bad they look on earth, I decided to give a try at making my own. Working from NASA pictures, I remade the texture with 2 main objectives:
- As realistic as possible on Earth
- Impossible to distinguish Earth shape on other planets.

A entirely new texture for the night lights, built from official NASA pictures.
Resolution is 4K (4096x2048), twice the size of the original, but shouldn't pose ny problem, many textures are in this format.


The mod is completely save game compatible, you can activate/deactivate the mod without any impact.

This mod, as it stands, should NOT conflict with ANY other mod.
Ironman compatible
Achievement compatible.

  • 1.1:
    - Reverted compression to DXT5, lowering the filsize
    - Now have the proper alpha channel
  • 1.1.1:
    - Lights will not be red anymore and should be now in a more traditional yellow shade
    - Added some lights in some areas of the world according to population growth in the future - india, african coast especially Nigeria, maghreb, chinese coast as well as south east asia.

Yeah, I don't think the mod should be boasting about compatibility with ANY mod when there are mods out there it's not compatible with.

4. Korean peninsula has not been divided for most of history, Unified Silla(830) is generally considered to be the first unified Korean state and handovered to Goryeo Dynasty(918~1392), Joseon Empire(1392~1910) and this fact led to "one people".

North Korea's first leader and the first king of loyal Kim family, Kim Il sung eliminated all other parties in North Korea after the failure of Korean War and established "Juche Idea", became dictator and started to ruin the whole country. His policy has failed to develop after 1970 and now the loyal Kim family is trying to keep their dictatorship by developing some nucler weapons. Not related with military culture or agrarian culture at all.

@Orthopaktis, North Korea is dark just because of the government.
1. Not only the North is covered with mountain terrain, but South is covered with Taebaek Mountains and Sobaek Mountains. You can see how South Korean communism partisan resisted during 1949~1964 in Sobaek Mountains.
2. The population has not been mostly focused on the South as you said. this started to apppear in nowadays thanks to loyal Kim family in the North, the total failure of governance restrained economy development and pupulation growth.
3. The North did not always traditionally have the capitol. The Joseon empire's capitol, Seoul(Hanyang or Kyongseong) lasted 1395~1910. Although Gaegyeong was the capitol of Goryeo empire during 919~1392, this fact can't be said as the North always traditionally had the capitol.

North Korea isn't just dark because of it's government, there's also the little fact that like half of the country is mountain terrain and barely inhabited... which also contributes to the food shortage. Korea's population has always been focused on the south, even if the North has traditionally had the capitol. It's also been divided for most of history, with the military culture of the North always trying to suppress the agrarian culture of the South, usually with China's aid.

Ironically, Communism merely restored the status quo there, and the short spiff with the Korean Empire experiment was just a fluke in the peninsula's history.
