    That's true.

    But look at it like this: The Planet you are on spins, but for you it looks like that the Sky is spinning along with the sheer number of Stars and Nebulas around you.

    Thanks, yes I created the model out of Blizzard's Summer Sky.
    By "rain" did you mean you want to make it cloudy? Like Mc !'s stormsphere in the UTM?

    Also, that's a great project of yours! I remember seeing it a few years ago, the progress is going awesome I see :D

    Why would I draw a base for my ceiling fan? :p

    JK, thanks for the compliment :D

    wow is one of the best models i saw in wc3, really. Can you make one cloudy? i mean, just changing textures, or one with a city or village. I tried make it myself but i put textures with 4000x4000 for better quality but the wc3 chrash.

    Example of what im traying to do:

    Look how the depths are like a sky simulating ground with blurry effect.

    This is very cool and useful resource. Only one question: evening time for this sky is too short and night time too long( Can you make shorter night time and longer evening?

    i used and discover that the model speed (when u use it with the trigger -> Environment - Set sky to war3mapImported\SummerSphereT.mdx) is proportional to the day time speed. So, if you put 500% it will be faster.

    Is this what you're looking for? Lordaeron Hills Sky (Beta)
    I can't do custom textures, but there's a chance I'll try it out.
    AFAIR, Wc3's max size for texture is 512x512px.

    Thanks, and sure I'll update the bundle. (I also added a new color transition, if you mind I'll send you another edit)

    I have been looking for this, and by looking for this, I found a lot of people that has been looking for this. The looking is over!! I'll paste links to this all over the place!
    This is lovely. Now, maybe I can replace my halfassed soloution for my Outland map... :)

    I'm not sure I can use those textures that are already here, but they sure look gorgeous! I hope you don't mind if I change the textures for using in my own map?
