Moon (Full Motion and Phases)

Do you feel the sky is missing something?

How about a realistic moon complete with orbital motion and phases?

  • Full orbital motion
  • At a 5° inclination relative to the sun (means eclipses are rare)
  • Moves slightly slower than the sun across the sky, just like in real life
  • Phases! See the full range of phases from New Moon to Full Moon and back again.
  • Motion is relative to Sun speed. Change speed in game options, moon moves to match.
  • Tidally locked, same side always faces the planet
  • Physics-less, doesn't affect performance.
  • Client side only, no server impact

  • Shadowed eclipses (currently they don't shadow the planet)
  • Export a moon voxel mesh and import that for the model (maybe)
  • Adjust ambient brightness at night, based on phase

Any chance this can be resized to work with the resized sun mod?

Yeah, I tried to take a look at that, and unfortunately there's absolutely no logging for mods in 0.7.
The previous method I was using is broken, and just doesn't work, despite no errors provided.
The game's own logging is prohibited, so I can't even log to the main log file.
Once the logging is fixed, I can have a shot at debugging that problem.
I apologize for the delay on that. I don't even know why it doesn't load to begin with, there's no reason why it shouldn't.

Still not working on DS in 0.7 sadly, would love to see this on our server

This is purely client side. It shouldn't have any issue on DS.
DS can add it, and it'll get sent to players, but DS doesn't nothing with it specifically.
I'm surprised it has an issue, I'll look into it.

cant wait to see a moon in the sky on DS. would be a great distraction from the grind.

Is there a way to get this to work on DS?
Along with oceans on a planet, this would be great if it would work.

hi there phoenix!
i freaking love watching the moon in the night sky above my torch-light villages =)
though as im playing with a friend locally hosted the moon only appears for me. could you think of a way to get this running for multiplayer? in singleplayer he sees it just as i do

Is it fixed on DS too? I see no moon

Sorry for the delay. Thanks to one of the Medieval developers, the Moon mod is now fixed!
