Target version:-


The skybox is in dire need of a replacement. Firstly the resolution of the sunset is really low and secondly the stars look too patchy as if they where painted on with a spray can in paint shop pro. Would recommend sourcing a high quality image of a Californian sunset over desert terrain and using an appropriate star map of the area. There would be no need to correctly orient the star map as there is no real way of determining north, unless you do that via the positioning of additional base utilities specified in suggestion #734.

Regardless, would improve the map and immersion greatly.

Skybox texture could be recreated in higher detail (would also benefit other locations). Stars texture is an artifact from New Vision, and needs to be corrected. Cecilia, when you have the time, take a look?
