can you make the sun bigger and look good? like the moon.
also(if you can) I would recommend putting a pixel sun/moon clouds and the current one (realistic) in the config for the people that like either or for lag?, idk anything about coding but of course if its possible, GL :p

edit: well nvm ppl that want a pixelated sun/moon will stick with vanilla :D

I have a suggestion which might have been said before

1. Pixelated Celestial objects
I looked at the moon and other celestial objects in the mod but I though "Hey! What if they were pixelated like the vanilla moon!". I feel like it would make more sense bc the game is pixelated and making the night sky objects not pixelated makes it look out of place.

2. Terraria overhaul compatibility
When I went to sleep in terraria, I saw that everything just jutted out towards the foreground and the galaxies and nebula had a huge outline filled in with black and it looked... weird. Maybe make it so it doesn't jut out.

Thank you for reading this far and have a nice day:happy:
 
I would love a way to configure the mod to use the old moon textures instead if possible. Or a smaller version of the current moon. It's so big it can be a bit distracting at night. I love the starry nights now though!

I've recently started using your mod, and I cannot stress enough how much I loved the new and improved night sky, so much that I've actually made a space base to see it more often =D

Two questions, though:
- What are the variations of the moon? You mentioned working on something for the ringed moon. What does it looks like?
- Do you have any plan for the sun/eclipse/monoliths?

I'm having some problems and it causes a crash for me when I sometimes reload.
Hmm.. the log doesn't show me anything that crashes. Try running Better Night Sky on its own and let me know what happens.

Making all the celestial objects pixelated might actually make things look worse. I'll experiment with it and find out.
I also unfortunately don't know much about overhaul or how it works, so I'm unsure if I'll fix it. Thanks for letting me know about the issue though.

I agree. You'll have this feature soon.

There's currently only one moon variation in better night sky which is the one you always see. Vanilla terraria has three moon variations (white, brown and green planet). I was working on a green planet sprite but it's turning out to be a little more difficult than I expected so that'll take a bit more to fix. Think saturn but smaller and greener :p.
I'm not sure if I'll do anything for the sun, since the mod is well, better **night** sky. Again, if people really want this feature I don't see any issue with adding it but I can't guarantee great results since daytime skies in Terraria are a little more difficult to work with than nighttime. Eclipse might get a new sprite, but I'll leave monoliths alone since their skies are already pretty well detailed.



The upcoming update is focused on adding configuration and turning this mod into a clientsided mod, meaning that you can install it and join any server without needing the server to install it as well.

Thank you! I was thinking like a toggle for those who love a realistic night time view. I honestly find it strange because the rest of the world is still pixels but everyone can like whatever they want unless it’s weird, illegal, or both.
