Classic Skybox Remastered

Because we are already in the process of switching to a new skybox, you can use it as well before it is officially released!

haven't used this but the images here look nice to me. Honestly with the black background finding things that weren't lit up was a pain even if they were lit up but too far away to see the lighting. this looks like it could be a great help with that from the images. But i do have to agree with everyone that there should be a way to select a skybox from different ones.

I think it looks pretty good. I don't think anyone wants to even give it a chance for some reason. I don't think the grey is depressing at all and it actually makes the colors you use for building and builds in general stand out more and have a really nice contrast with the background.

Sorry, but the vanilla skybox is so shit i have never used it since my first mod.

And the new one is the same, but grey.

Suggestion: make the skybox part of the game setup, so we can just choose them rather than having to have a mod for it.

Sorry, but no need for just a "place-holder"... Oo wtf - You had in the past a good one...(black with colored stars) and not this crap, or the current light-show, thats not looking like space at all... what are you doing, again?!... Oo Maybe, its a good idea to make the first in round 1 done? -.- :P

Going to have to throw my lot in with the "please no" camp I'm afraid.
Same reasons as everyone else - too grey & depressing.

I get that KSH wants to re-capture the character of the game as it was on first launch but that game is long gone now. The Space Engineers of 2017/18 is a different animal & deserves to have a brand new future of its own, not one built on rose-tinted memories from 5 years ago.
To go back to this from the current skybox feels like a step backward purely for the sake of nostalgia.

If this became the only stock skybox I'd be straight on the workshop looking for a mod to replace it. Add it to the game by all means but make it optional & not the default.

Quoth: "Let the past be there in it's rightful place, seeable for those who would see it; but let not the future be consumed by wistful longing for that which can never truly be the same again."

To be honest Xoc, we (and I) don't really want this skybox. It's too grey and depressing. Yes we still have skybox mods to fall back on, yes the modders will inevitably resurrect the current blue nebula skybox as a mod, but you shouldn't rely on that. We get it, we're all about nostalgia here, but in my honest opinion, this change would not be for the benefit of the community. For this reason, I implore you, Marek, and the whole team at Keen to leave this skybox as it is: a dev mod.
Like the thruster modules medium thrusters and sniper cannon. For those who want it (keep in mind there are very few who do), they can still get it, they just have to download it and have it installed on their worlds. I have to agree with some people here that say the "Space Just Got Real" environment mod would be a far superior alternative to Silver Surfer's favorite soup. :)

YEah, I agree, we at least would like to have the option of which skybox we want to use, so its ok if you want to add this one as long as we are able to keep the current blue one!

Xoc could you also publish the previous skybox please as I quite liked it Thanks

I would not be happy if this is released in one of the next major updates. It Looks way to gray, and just the same as the old one just not blue. You can't just change the old skyboxes colar & say this is the new official skybox. I don't even use the official skybox, It's not a good representation of space. I use Darth Biomecks skybox of the Milky Way. Even if it's not necessarily the same Universe as ours Keen should make something like that skybox or at least a image of other galaxy's arm! Not gigantic Space clouds, That's not space! Now there are Nebula, But from our perspective they are so far away there as tiny as distant Stars. Not trying to complain, I just don't thing that this is a logical skybox that's all.

UMMM, How about NNOOO, It looks like my infant's diaper, I would recommend the "domain" skybox found here
