Mod Name: Cosmic Night Sky
Game: Oblivion
Version: 1.3
Author: samroski
Released: August 11, 2008


About the Mod:

This mod gives you the option of more than 80 new textures for the Oblivion night sky.
These are mostly NASA and Hubble images of nebulae, galaxies and star clusters.



You need to replace one texture. 

There is no .esp file to activate. 

The texture for the night sky is present in the folder: Oblivion/Data/Textures/Sky and is named:

For users of Natural Environments, this texture resides in: Oblivion/Data/Textures/NaturalEnvironments/Sky. 

Please back up this file (optional).

Unzip this mod to a folder on your hard drive. This will create a set of 81 folders named for the nebula/galaxy used to create the replacement texture. 

Each of these folders will have two files: a jpg image of the nebula/galaxy, and a corresponding texture. 

The jpg images are also present in the main folder to aid selection.

To use the textures, copy the desired texture and paste it into: Oblivion/Data/Textures/Sky.  Say "Yes" when asked to overwrite the existing file. 

To use a different texture copy the desired file into Oblivion/Data/Textures/Sky.



This mod was inspired by: Sky Candy by Cordwainer

The images are mostly from the archives of NASA and Hubble and Astronomy Picture of the Day Archive. I have added a few art images on the insistence of my daughter :) These should not be taken seriously.

I used Paint, Microsoft Office Picture Manager and DDS Convertor to manipulate the images.

You may use these textures as you wish. Please inform me ( if possible.


Future Plans:

I will continue to add new textures to this mod as newer images are released. 

My previous plans of automatic cycling of these textures have been shelved :)
