-Sky-

 

There are 5 things about the sky you can customize:
1) the colour of the sky's top shades
2) the colour of the sky's bottom shades
3) the colour and material of the sun/moon
4) the colour of the ambient lighting
5) the colour of the clouds

We start with the dawn's colours:
For the top part of the sky, 

1) Click "Dawn (Top)" 

2) Slide the colours to get what you want

And we're done with the dawn's colours! It is all pretty and red!
The rest are exactly the same steps, so here's a summary for Day, Dusk and Night.

 

 

Orange day! skymaker4
Purple dusk! skymaker5
Black night! skymaker6

 

 


 

And we're finished! Now just to save and test your sky:
1) Under "File Name" enter your sky's name. Try not to use weird symbols.
2) Click Save.
3) After saving, your sky's name should appear under the list of skies you can load from.
4) Test your sky! You can watch how the sky changes colours throughout the day and night.
