[Resolved] Non earthly environ (Mars)?
« on: Aug 05, 12, 11:23:35 AM »

How do I set the sky to be perpetually red and also make the clouds a different color?

Hi mort,

I'd recommend diving into the wiki to learn about all there is to know with world building, but the easy answer is open the environment panel, and change the color of the sky and clouds.

Thanks, Cooper.

EDIT: Okay, I managed to do the environment but I can't get the land to look red enough. Do I have to make a new terrain tile and recolor it?

I'm using either GIMP or paint.net since I don't have photoshop to do DSS files.

NM think I made one the right way.....

Gimp can export dds files just fine that is what we are using.

go to windows, click on environment, then click on light, and change the colors to whatever you want. you can also just click on the color tool in the terrain window, select a red-ish color, and paint over all of your terrain but that will only work on terrain and not models or anything, so i would recommend changing the light.

Looks like mars isn't red.
Take a look at the recent images from "Curiosity"

I created a new terrain tile. I saved it in

/World/LiveContent/TerrainMaps/Generic/Gravel_Stone/ of repo browser.

The terrain tile is a redder version of a previous tile...

This way I don't have to paint the tiles one at a time.

The iron in the ground makes it look like red-ish from far away, but from close, Mars isn't all that red ;)

Aw, but I like red. It doesn't have to be accurate.
