I would really love to, that would be interesting artistic experiment. Unfortunately my free time is coming to an end and I'll barely have enough to finish Desert City Walls. :(

1) With sun of this size, Tamriel would be a scorched land! I think it should be decreased in size.

2) Is it possible to replace skybox in this mod? In comparison with vanilla, skybox in this mod seems bland and empty to my taste. I can find some HDRI skyboxes, or maybe even try to make a handpainted one (similar to ones from 2000's games like Outcast and Giants:Citizen Kabuto, colorful and with dramatic huge clouds).

3) Why sun flare was removed? I think it could be made optional in mod settings.

4) Post-effects such as sun shafts would suit well with this mod. I made some research and found that there are free sun shafts scripts for Unity on the net. But since i'm not a coder I'm not sure i can implement them myself.

5) Is it possible to create some kind of mask for skyboxes to make sun hide behind clouds?
If you didn't know the skies are actually procedural, and I'm pretty sure the lens flair is an option.

When I start the game, it takes a while for a cloud layers to update. Thats not a problem for me.

So why I talk about it?

It created a nice effect in the picture Ive taken.

There is a rain but the clouds are not those grey overcast type YET (they will switch in a matter of seconds) So this screen was taken before the clouds updated to overcast. I think such weather as captured in a screen could be working well in game, as a additional type of weather, it deffo looked nice ingame!

Just a light rain during a day...

I like that! 2nd screen I added in a EDIT does not work as great Id say during the day, the overcast sky doesnt work well with the bright coloured ground and folliage, it would need a hint of fog... with that implemented, both versions would be great

The weather on these two screenshots is extremely lovely! (If you love rain that is... ;) ) So chilly, but romantic even! Would love to see both in game, but the second one will work even better with some fog added, agree!
