Title  Demangel's Masterwork Sky hak
Author  Demangel
Submitted / Updated  09-05-2005 / 11-01-2006

UPDATED: 11/1/06 Added: Eberron Night Time skybox for those looking to do an Eberron module, or have thier world look truly different. This is a sepperate transitioning Skybox which uses the partly cloudy dawn, day, and dusk skyboxes, and changes the night skybox to one beffitting Eberron. (does NOT conflict with partly cloudy) Features all the moons of Eberron, as well as the dramatic ring of Siberys! ************************************* Added: Celios Day-Night skybox, a custom skybox used for a custom mod project (never released) It features a very large, and very dramatic blue gas giant looming on the horizon at all times of the day, as well as 2 colorful moons at night. Excellent for any new world that needs a unique sky. ************************************* end update This hak is my first "True" hak made from scratch. It is a pair of two new skybox sets. Both have full transitions that go from Dawn-Day-Dusk-Night.

In the toolset you will have access to:

Partly cloudy (full transition)
Stormy (full transition).
Partly cloudy dawn (no transition).
Partly Cloudy Dusk (no Transition).
Stormy Dawn (no Transition).
Stormy Dusk (no Transition).

I have also used the .2da from the Nanosky haks that way users of those fine haks won't have issues of compatability with mine.

My skies should appear on your skybox list as the last six skyboxes starting with Dem_

The first two are the full transition, the last four are the static ones.

I included the static boxes in case people wanted to use them in cutscenes, as the stomry version is especialy dramatic and suitable for some very wonderful cinimatic moments.

Keep your eyes open for future additions to this set, and please if you like what you see PLEASE let me know!

Updated: 11/1/06 to include 2 new out of this world skyboxes, including one for any eberron based module. Extract via Winrar or extration program of choice that supports .rar format, and add to your hak folder.

Incredibly beautiful. These skies really have to be seen in-game to be believed. You deserve a medal for such amazing work!

Here's my vote of 10.00; what more can I say that isn't already in my earlier post? The community is richer for this work of art... and, the CSP (Community Skybox Pack) is more beautiful because of it. Eberron Sky is my favorite, and this is my way of thanking you for the creation of some of the best skies to hang over the worlds of Nwn. - Cheers!

As a thank-you for making these skies, I thought it only right to give you a vote for your magnificent work of art. The community... and of course the CSP (Community Skybox Pack)... would be a great deal poorer, without these fine additions to the skies we put over our Nwn worlds! Here is a 10.00; you have earned it indeed. (Eberron Sky rules!)

Ooooh..yes, find it out after the post ;)Build them into my skyboxes hak and enjoyed them really! Thanks Demangel and hope you hold on your great work. Happy new Year! Darky

There was an update just about a month ago :) the new Eberron sky box is now part of the set. Enjoy!

*wait and hope* will there be an update?

Posted by Demangel at 2006-10-15 14:35:22    
Thanks for all the nice feedback gang. I am hoping to put up an update in the near future, with a new skybox for more "out of this world" modules, featuring a truly dramatic sky (complete with a great big gas giant hanging in the sky... Adeal for any custom setting that has such a vista somewhere, or perhaps one of the planes?).

Marvellous Skies!! I love your artful work and hope you continue with it.

The skies look great. I'm going to use this in my module.

Your stormy sunset skybox provided the perfect background for a Final Fantasy-themed cutscene that I created. Keep up the good work!

These are beautiful! Good job.

I especially like that you produced them by hand, they *really* look gorgeous.

Please let me encourage you with my vote. Thank you, Demangel!

More is on the way, I'm working the bugs out of my latest boxes. The next pack will be compatable with the first and only contain the new boxes and required .2da.

The new boxes may appeal to fewer people however as they are meant for a project I'm working on, which, like many others will likely not go public :(

The new boxes are less... earth like. They include a large gas giant planet hanging on the horizon durring the day, and night, with more or less normal sunsets and rises in betwen probably.

Very nice work. Would love to see even more released by you. Certainly adds a lot for any module.

Keep it up!
