New Skydome Mod - File Description  

This is just a little addon for those of you who are tired of looking at the same backgrounds for the skydomes/skyboxes. This mod contains 5 new extra space backgrounds that are basically differently coloured versions of some of the vanilla backgrounds. The ambient lighting is a bit strong but it gives a bit more "atmospheric" feel to each star system using these backgrounds. This mod will not overwrite the original files but due to the game engine randomly picking space backgrounds you may have to restart a few maps or games to see these back grounds in operation. View readme and screenshots for more information!

However, I can't use it. Doesn't seem to be working for me unfortunately. I've done as the readme says, and it seems straightforward enough, but it hasn't shown up in game yet.

I did a bit of looking around and each of the Star files has a list of Skyboxes it uses (In vanilla it's all spaced oddly and all that code nonsense) and adding to them crashes the game. Any help on this?

If you don't add the SkyBoxProperties.skyboxbackdropdata file and change the texture names to say skybox2 ...to 7 it will show up straight away
