Better Storms Longer Days

  • descriptionDescription

    This mod makes a number of changes to make storms feel more natural and realistic:

    • Transitions of storm effects (stormy to clear and vice versa), as well as storm-related cloud coverage changes are much slower and more gradual. It no longer seems as if someone just pushed an "INSTANT STORM NOW!" button;
    • The maximum cloud coverage during storms is increased from around 85% to 100%;
    • The duration of storms is doubled but the time in between storms has also been increased;
    • Storm warning time is greatly increased, from 25 seconds to 2 minutes.

    Furthermore this mod doubles the duration of days and nights.

    As a little side bonus, I made the atmosphere seen around distant planets in space is a bit thinner, as they look rather too thick in vanilla NMS.

    Compatibility:

    This mod is incompatible with other mods that modify GCSKYGLOBALS.GLOBALS.MBIN
