About This File
This mod replaces every skybox and every planetary backdrop in the game with a new high resolution version made from scratch.
This includes a replacement of every skybox model to fix all the glaring issues with the original.
There are also some additional minor changes that either fix issues with the vanilla environments or serve to better blend ingame terrain and skybox.
Other than that I recommend you just check out the screenshots as pictures say more than a thousand words or check the video to see the animated skyboxes.

There are also add-ons with new skyboxes for the following mods:
- Brotherhood of Shadows: Solomon's Revenge
- Yavin IV
- Ord Mandell including InSidious' reskin
- Green Grass for Dantooine
If you find any issues or have any other comments, please let me know and I'll see what can be done.
If you have a previous version of this mod installed, remove it before installing the new version or you might run into some issues.
For installation instructions check the read-me files of the individual downloads. Usually it's just copying files to your Override folder. For the mod to take full effect you need a savegame where you have not yet left Dantooine.
This mod is not compatible with any mod that edits skyboxes in any way. This includes mods that only edit their models. There might also be rare incompabilities with mods that edit non-skybox area models if those models are also edited by this mod.
You may NOT redistribute any textures included in this archive without my explicit permission. You may however use all the models as long as you give me credit.
