Description
PSA: THE NIGHT MAPS ARE REMOVED FROM THIS MOD! THEY ARE NOW CONTAINED IN A SEPARATE MOD.

This mod adds (not replaces) several new skydomes/Environmental Lighting Maps to both the Tactical and Avenger map. This mod will change the lighting of the tactical and Avenger maps, when these maps are present.

If you have issues with this mod or spotted a bug, please report it in the Bug Report Thread. If you want to provide feedback, whether its good or bad, then post in the General Feedback Thread.
If you are thinking of downvoting this mod, please provide feedback first, so I know what I should improve on/did wrong.

WHAT THIS MOD ADDS
  • Daytime - Noon and Overcast
  • Dusk

KNOWN ISSUES
  • The Rain/Snow maps are disabled in the Avenger Basecape view. I'm pretty sure that the rain and snow will clip through the Avenger.

TODO
  • Fix some bugs, if any.
  • Port more skydomes (Nightime Skydomes mostly)
  • Add more weather varieties. (Heavy rain/snow at daytime, Hurricane weather)

COMPATIBILITY
  • It's compatible with all map mods, since it adds (NOT RELPACES) Environmental Lighting maps.

CREDITS

Textures:
  • CGSkies for the panoramic sky textures.

Material/Map Assembly/Misc:
  • E3245 for assembling the maps and materials for this mod.
  • Robojumper for figuring out post processing, and Color Lookup Tables.

Amazing sunset - just started a new game with this mod, so I'm guessing it belongs to you, @e2345. Thanks for the mod! Image posted here.

It's just a bunch of maps, so no.

@E3245 does this mod change any files that effect gameplay? or conflict with any mods that change gameplay like LW2?

I just subscribed and loaded up a game. It looks great! If you do figure out how to make lighting affect visibility, that would add more depth. Maybe add night vision scopes?

I love the dusk maps!

@Dragon32
They are completely standalone, with their own Post Processing Effects. I have to check the Darker Night Sky Tweak and see if that mod changes something that affects that mod.

@Peregrinus
Another solution would be to make the darker nights map a standalone mod, which is about 40% of this mod. I might make the darker nights map a separate mod, since those make the game more difficult to traverse, and some modders would like to use those for their projects.

Just using daytime maps, and it definitely adds that little extra to the atmosphere. Great job! I hope a solution shows up for nighttime maps.
