This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Hi all!

I've made a buy able "sky", it projects new clouds in the atmosphere, every night at 12 the sky will change effect and project a another type of clouds e.g. Stormy clouds, Sunny day, Raining clouds, Clear Day etc. Witch means every day will have different weather!

You can click on the "sky" itself and select manual weather or auto weather witch allows you to change the weather your self... There are 12 kinds of cloud effects, you can also choose witch cloud effect you want by clicking on the sky!

You have to have move_objects on to place the "sky" outside your house,
once you've placed the sky click on it, Choose Weather, and any month to activate it.

You can find it under Buy mode, Lighting and it costs $0

Go have a look at GunMod's Radiance Light System 2.1
It Includes 4 Times of day for Downtown and University (if you have the EP)
This means you can have a morning, daytime, evening and night effect on the clouds! (The reddish pictures)

Please Ask me if you want to recolour my object!
I like to give credit to Inge Jones and Delphy for helping me with the coding.

I hope you enjoy this object! please feel free to use it in movies or any pictures you choose to upload!!



For everyone that "cant" grab the objects and delete, don't click on the little ball click on the sky it self! The same if you don't get a pie menu, click on the sky it self. The ball is there for placing only.

If you only view a part of the sky, go to the game, options-F5, then Game options, and put neighborhood view distance on extra large.

If your sky is Dark during the day, or bright during the night, its because you have to put it outside your house not inside.
