Rareden's Real 8k Skybox for Texture Replacer

Recommended Posts

PREVIEW

LpzcMQ4.jpg

I was using this sky-box a while back with Universe Replacer. It's painfully difficult to find and the source I got this from was for Universe Replacer. I changed the names so it works with Texture Replacers coding. Credit goes to Rareden. Whom I have permission from. Enjoy :D

INSTALLATION

Texture Replacer > Default > *Insert Images*

Not sure this falls under the definition of "mod"?

It would probably be better to post it in the Texture Replacer thread.

Hello, these are beautiful but do I need to rename them or change the file extension ? Cant seem to get them to work and also the other skybox was in the EnvMap folder in texture replacer. Do I need to delete them?

Lol, i've still got this in my mod directory, along with a note about how to change the names. Still the best skybox availible imho.

The EnvMap folder contains the .tga files which, I believe, designate the images to their corresponding locations in the sky box. Just drop the images in Texture Replacer > Default. It may be that another file you have is conflicting with it. May just have to experiment. Here's what it should look like v

Yeah, that's what I had it for, but I started using BA5 with texture replacer. I like this sky-box too much though, so I made it compatible with TR.

Okay..? How might I obtain this license. I am not familiar with the legalese of forums.

Check out this site: https://creativecommons.org/licenses/

It's got multiple licenses that anyone can use, so take a look at the different ones and pick what you think would work best for this. Since it's just textures (made by someone else to boot) I would recommend a Noncommercial Sharealike variant.

All "Noncommercial Sharealike" means is that people can't profit off of it and they must use the same license as well as attribute you if they redistribute it somewhere else.

Sorry I missed that, kind of tired.

Will this revision suffice?

Yes, this is fine.

This is the famous EOS Milky Way Panorama. You can get a 18 megapixel version there. The original is 800 megapixels (!) but is not available for download, except perhaps by request.

BTW, The correct license for this image is the CC Attribution 3.0 Unported, that allows remix, transformation, and build upon the material for any purpose, even commercially. So this image could be used in the final commercial version of KSP, if they wanted to use it. Dr. Brunier may even provide a higher resolution version on request, for a true 4 or 8K skybox.

My biggest problem with this skybox (and the default one, at that) is that the Milky Way isn't inclined to the ecliptic like the real one is. It's still amazing though and I love being able to see my favorite constellations/stars/nebulae/M31 while flying.

Jup.

I use the same one (although I IrfanView'ed them to iirc 4k, for performance reasons).

I have been looking for this skybox forever. I have seen it in dozens of screenshots, but could never find it.

Not kidding. This looks terrible to me.. I can see pixles all over the place. No way this is 8k..

The sky in oblivion looks waaaaay better than this.

I shouldn't be seeing pixles in every star I look at.

I shouldn't be seeing pixles in the milkyway.

I do.

I have only find a very few of these skyboxes that don't have this problem.

I wish this was one of them because it is my favorite.
