Information (Click for more details):
This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
The SkyFix removes "walls" that made sun, moon, stars, meteors (in Seasons+ coding) and neighborhood skyboxes (in Nightlife+ coding) not visible on lots. This mod makes it possible to create a skybox that is not covered by the fading horizon (thanks to Lowedeus for the solution to this problem). See screenshots for a simple explanation.
Update (15 APR 17): Added a fixed version for Mac. The snow texture outside of the lot doesnt flash purple anymore.
Update (7 APR 17): SkyFix 2 eats up terrain paints and floors on other lots. Fixed in the new version (2.1).
If you have an old version of this mod (simNopke-skyFix-xxx or simNopke-skyFix2-xxx), delete it first.
There are 4 versions of this mod. You need to choose only one for the newest expansion pack you have installed. Note that Mansion and Garden Stuff is treated as an expansion pack 9 and other stuff packs as an expansion pack 4.5.
None caused by this mod, but there is a bug you can't see without the SkyFix in Seasons or newer EP: double sun and double moon.
The SkyFix does not affect camera mods.
For creators of skyboxes
If you want to create a skybox that is properly layered and compatible with the SkyFix, you need to use the following values for the stdMatLayer parameter in the material file of your skybox:
