    I changed the image, as I find it more fitting to the "interaction" with the environment.
    When do you want it approved?

    Oh that's okay, it was completely legitimate since you're dead and I was listed as sole benificiary to everything not listed in the very thin »matters of no concern to fladdermasken« margin. Good news is, YOU'RE NOW OFFICIALLY A GOOD MAN AND AN ORGAN DONOR.

    Fladd, tint the sun into orange, the clouds look unrealistic because of that.

    I'm pretty sure that's orange. But I guess you want it a tad darker.

    I acutally liked the first one more, but it depends on the race you will choose after all.
    The first one seemed more vivid to me though.

    One day I'll force you to make a sky that fits to a terrain and not the other way around.
