Might be difficult, but would be super cool to add bright stars that form lore friendly constellations.

After several nights traveling into the desert, it feels increasingly weird that stars do not have an apparent movement into the sky...
i know it's a game not an astronomy simulator, so if it takes too much effort or too much performance don't bother...

is there a plan to have the moons emit light? They seem very dark.

When your project is that good that people ask for the stars to move in the sky, you can pat yourself on the back @ DFU team!

The issue is finding lore accurate (or accurate enough) infos about Nim astronomy...

It seems that the dev version (0.7.0) broke Enhanced Sky mod, I get the classic sky instead...

Unrelated, but while I'm at it, the JSON mod manifest contains old thread URL as ContactInfo, maybe it should be updated to point to this very one?

commit 72dad3ff7285c0288c693c62acfecc21f44de07f
Author: TheLacus <TheLacus@users.noreply.github.com>

    ModSettings: Remove support for obsolete features
    
    Old settings files based on INI are now unsupported.
    Mod developers are invited to upgrade with the Mod Settings Editor from "Daggerfall Tools" > "Mod Settings".
    There is a button named "Import Legacy INI" which should help to provide a smooth transition.

Distant Terrain is also impacted, but I haven't checked if it comes from the same commit:
