I created this mod for my survival and explor RP server Demeter Skies

About the server:
The Demeter system includes 11 planets (3 with water), 6 moons, 18 asteroid clusters, 4 planetary asteroid belts and one gas giant. The diameter of the system is 22000 km!
Due to deverse NPC encounter mods and difficult resource gathering as well as an extensive progression system it is a challenge to gain a foothold.
The system is designed for exploration and PvE, PvP is also allowed according to certain rules.

Server IP:

1. Deep Star Map, NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center Scientific Visualization Studio ( ) - used as main background
2. Milky Way Panorama, ESO/S. Brunier ( ) - used for color and nebula info
3. Andromeda Galaxy photo, Adam Evans ( ) - Detailing
4. Original Skybox Mod created from the above images By Darth Biomech

Altered and re-uploaded in accordance with DarthBiomech's mod re-upload rules found here:

Awesome edit. The piss sun and its flare taking 3/4 of the screen was so irritating.

Was using this skybox in the workshop presentation of a ship I made. This adds soo much immersion during playing and presenting alike, I cannot go back to the vanilla skybox anymore.

Nice. Was testing this against "Space just got real" and the sun color was an argument for me to switch. Good job.

There seems to be a bug with neon tubes, they have basically no emissive effect on the environment. I used them quite a lot for performance friendly lighting and my ships are now almost impossible to navigate while running this mod

lcds are not affected and yes you can just uninstall the mod if you don't like it anymore
