Title: Daystars Mega Skypack Projects
Post by: Daystar on December 16, 2016, 11:12:10 PM
Created this new forum so that I would not flood the Mod Development Screenshots section!

Tonight I present you with "Milky Way" another new Sky just created tonight  :o Hope somehow Purple44 can view the vids I will be posting in here! perhaps get Chrome? or another light Browser?

http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x55gppq (http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x55gppq)

3 skies created so far out of 50
and all will be at 4096X4096 resolution yay - But I still would love a wiki or some tool tips in Bagedit concerning all the features in creating skies!

Thanks for letting me know Janne and glad you like!  :D Hmm so I guess Purple has issues watching videos from other sites aside from Youtube. perhaps your codecs are not up to date?

Works for me (tm).

That's looking awesome, Michael!

Thanks, and uhm no. would take a veeeeery long time to process each plane. perhaps like 40 minutes each. left, right, top, back, front all have to be processed. don't think I want to wait 200 minutes. plus where in hell would I find 8192X8192 sky images? lol
Title: Re: Daystars Mega Skypack Projects
Post by: The Very End on December 21, 2016, 12:30:43 PM
Just upscale pics in paint lolol!
Well, hmm, there are some texture sites like textures.com that offer different stuff, alltho not sure about skies.

Jus thought it would be fun seeing the quality that might emerge from that.
Wonder what BB do to get their 2k skies that nice looking :)

Omg what the hell is going on? so I finally get in the mood to create another 4k sky for Wreckfest tonight and then I come to this error...

(http://i63.tinypic.com/2w36xbn.jpg)

bloddy hell, I am creating the same way like I always do, and I do confirm the size for each section is 4098X4098 ughh!! did Bugbear change the bimage.exe or something?!!! (http://orig15.deviantart.net/8074/f/2007/139/f/0/_scratch_head__by_krut0n.gif)

Yup, can watch some in full screen at 730p. :) I use 720p for my videos, 1080p to big of file and I don't record with Fraps at that high of resolution. Got go.

Another sky for you Purple that you missed. Hope you are having a cool Christmas out there on the west coast!                                   _

This one is called "Hot Desert"

Post by: The Very End on December 26, 2016, 11:26:13 AM
I like that one :) I think the skies that also works as a background are your best work. Maybe try more like it with other engiroments in the background.
Title: Re: Daystars Mega Skypack Projects
Post by: Purple44 on December 26, 2016, 02:24:22 PM
That nice use of a weather map to add some background Daystar.  :D



House was a little packed with 19 people ( 9 of them kids, none of them mine ) Christmas morning.  :o Was a big pile of presents under the Christmas tree!

Hope you had good Christmas Daystar.  :D

Title: Re: Daystars Mega Skypack Projects
Post by: Daystar on December 26, 2016, 04:18:39 PM
Hey Thanks guys :D  Yeah The Very End I am working on finding these types, and they do make the game have unique new environments!
And that is great to hear you had a real festive time Purple! did you eat real good? me and Claudia will be making goose tonight.. since we were both pretty sick this past week.
but better late than never hehe!

And speaking of mountain ranges and city scapes and things, it is very hard to find good pics at 4096x4096 res. or at least 4096 and anything greater than 2048 on the internet.
Many wallpaper websites have these. but the thing is a lot of them are really stretched and pixellated.. looking horrible really.   Oh well, I am doing my best without any docs or help from anyone lol!

I just need to keep searching for good ones!  :)

This be sky 8 "Vextar" out of 50 planned. sometimes when I get frustrated and cannot get a good sky, I resort to space ones, which seem to almost always work out nicely!

Been so busy tonight with making a goose dinner... so it's a bit hectic over here right now.. bout to eat dinner and watch Supernatural with candle lights of course hehe

Purple let me know if you can view this please. said on my Youtube settings : Content Location: Germany
so not sure if U.S. Residents can view it. thanks!

I'm really liking these latest skies, and I already liked a lot of the originals, but they look really natural with the environment (in a way at least) when adding far scenery. I wondered what 'hot desert' would look like on another non sandpit track. I'll find out at some point

At this rate will we see daystars greatest sky hits pack  :D I hope so, maybe even a poll for the most liked over all the 3 packs later ;)

Well your wish is my command Orbotnive! hehe and wow thank you so much for your nice words! and as a matter of fact I have thought about making a couple separate packs featuring my better skies, and also a special pack only featuring space skies  :D

I am still waiting for some tut's and or docs and a wiki site in regards to the weather commands within Bagedit.  as of now, I am doing most of this by guess work! lol sucks not being guided correctly, but somehow I make do.

Thanks Purple.. and lol no I am not putting them in. it's the way I find them.  :P So here is another new sky that I have included. Named it "Cold Mountains" never mind the top most section and bottom. just the middle section always makes it into my new skies. as you can tell I processed this to be seamless which is a must in sky boxes.

"Cold Mountains" Sky 10 of 50 planned.

I will make a different new sky tonight maybe tomorrow... so stay tuned as always!  ;D

This be sky #11 out of 50 planned. it's called "Norteno" which translates to Northern in Spanish.

http://youtu.be/m-8tmUkhjSA (http://youtu.be/m-8tmUkhjSA)

And stupid Youtube says it is still processing the audio swap on this video. been at 90% for over half an hour. I used youtube free music (which is gay) because my other youtube vids says copyrighted music.
anyways.. this is my last upload of 2016 and my lucky number "11" this is sky #11  :)

1st new sky created this year! this one is called "City Lights" and believe me, it is much better than my previous "City Scape" sky from my v3 pack! no bad pixelation, no fuzzy background. well this is a 4K sky after all lol! any way this is sky #12 out of 50 created so far. had to make 2 vids for this one  ;)

It gets on my nerves I can't rate posts here, what?! A mod is more likely to go around spamming likes to friends or doling out disagress to anyone who isn't than any other member?! Bah.

Anyway looks good, and I liked on the youtube vids instead :P It never stops surprising me how much a different sky and ambience can change the overall track feeling.

Yeah I understand that dilemma. it really is odd you guys cannot rate. maybe Janne or the forum administrator can change that in the settings. and hey thanks for the like on my vids! (http://orig01.deviantart.net/1670/f/2007/270/b/0/b055808643bcb7f0.gif)

Good stuff ;) Guess the difference between 4k and 8k will be visible on stuff that is similar to ordinary skies. But dunno, maybe BB uses some secret ways to get their skies in such details. But, they consist of 6 pieces right? And each piece itself is 8k or is it divided on 6?

Hi again TVE  :) Thanks! and I really wish I knew how Bugbear gets their skies so realistic as well! and there is only 5 sections - Left, Right, Front, Back, and Up. no bottom. and yeah each section is what you defined. so left is 8192, right is 8192 and so forth.

Going to try a different sky now for sky #17. hope it turns out better! back in a bit....

Sky #17 - This is a 4k sky that looks better than my previous 8k sky. it's called "Redrader"

I will try again with another 8k sky sometime. that is when I come across another very large wallpaper, art, 3d image etc again. which is not as often as you would think!

Hmm so did a little research about this embedding video issues. and it seems one of the forum moderators might of changed a setting?! is this so? and why is that?

also found a short article on this issue here. https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!msg/youtube/6zqQhjpzkcU/kvK-Vm57IdoJ

I'm more surprised that you could embed 10 videos in one post. I think it was lower at some point. You've already 12 in one page, so I don't wonder you've reached the limit in this page.
Title: Re: Daystars Mega Skypack Projects
Post by: Daystar on January 05, 2017, 03:54:53 PM
Hmm I need to remember this in future video postings. perhaps I am safer off with just a couple vids per post/page, and concentrate on screenshots again.

Todays new project. Sky #18 "Alien Occupied"  I will post links (not embed vids) to my result videos later on today. need to go shopping again.

(http://i64.tinypic.com/34eqj36.jpg)

Got a good spacey pic this time, and added some hostile aliens, planets and a couple other things.
this has already been processed (seamless) so both sides align correctly. just when I am back from the store, I will cut these all into sections, and insert into my wreckfest game and test!

please welcome in "Rikers Playground" sky #26 out of 50. named it this instead of "Devgard" sounds more fun I believe.

Well I just had a big scare  :-X came home from shopping a little bit ago, unloaded the groceries and came into our office, and tried to wake up my pc from it's sleep mode.. and nothing! no powerup fan sound, no green light for power! I was like nooooooo to my wife! so I opened up my baby and there was the problem.. thick dirt/dust on my cpu fan and my effin graphics card! both me and my wife smoke a lot, and and yeah I kind of put off cleaning my pc for like a year.. damn me! lol I should of took the hint when I started hearing my fans running louder and some stutter (lag) in my WF gaming! well I cleaned both fans thoroughly and fired my computer back up, and it's running like a charm again. you might of detected in some of my Wreckfest videos, some lag while racing. still need to test my game after I go grab a beer. and on that note... I am real happy I did not fry anything! stupid me!!! haha

Disregard this post. was a sky that I thought might work with previews. However when tested with my WF, it looked bad :-/

This is in reference to sky #39

Daystar, I'm curious where you get pics like these new ones for "Star Gaze"?

Are these real life pics from say the Hubble telescope?

It is amazing that Earth is just a pebble in the sea of the universe.   :o

Video is finished. so should I keep this new York sky or delete it out of the new skypack? looks great on some tracks, yet looks not so cool on others. Looks out of scale as opposed to the "Big City" sky I made previously.

Well because the buildings are really too large for a lot of the tracks. not realistically scaled that well. but if you like, I keep.  8)

Thanks for your feedback my friend  :D Got a quick question though... should I make this into "Industrial" sky perhaps? http://subwaydreams.com/My-Site-Pages/product-and-info-pages/Model-railroad-backdrops/images-full-size-backdrop/chemical-plant-54x18.jpg (http://subwaydreams.com/My-Site-Pages/product-and-info-pages/Model-railroad-backdrops/images-full-size-backdrop/chemical-plant-54x18.jpg)

Hi TVE Yeah they are all based off pictures. and Bugbear's Bagedit will not allow me to set offset below -4000 otherwise I could just lower it that way. but thanks for liking it anyways!  :D
Uploading "Colorado" sky now. I bet you will like it  :)

Maybe I will put this project on hold for an indefinite time. now with Janne's messages about mod structures being changed, and me finding out I have Swine Flu today, makes this project stall for a while. was fun for a while. no worries.. I get this done.. but when? your guess may be as good as mine.

Title: Re: Daystars Mega Skypack Projects
Post by: Daystar on February 06, 2017, 02:17:55 AM
Thanks, and thanks for your opinion. just worried if I upload this skypack and when people get their new Bugbear update, the directories might be all wrong thus my skypack will not work. that is if Bugbear is changing the weather directories. and then I would have to manually change everything over to the new defined directories.
Title: Re: Daystars Mega Skypack Projects
Post by: Heddly on February 06, 2017, 04:24:51 AM
It would be nice if BugBear could reveal the new folder structure/paths of the files that will be moved so modders can anticipate what changes may be needed. They may not be set in stone yet but when they are it would help with updating the mods.

They talked mostly about tracks and texture, what about car mods?
Title: Re: Daystars Mega Skypack Projects

Ok cool... I will probably get it done by tomorrow than! feel real bad for you and Purple though... so many changes you guys need to do in the update after this update :o

And I may have to fix my 150 previous skypack directories as well.. no fun!  >:(
Title: Re: Daystars Mega Skypack Projects
Post by: The Very End on February 06, 2017, 09:53:45 AM
Good stuff :)

Yes, going to be interesting to re-target all the textures (like 50-100 for each track, and I have like 30-40ish... 75 * 40 = 3000 texture paths to retarget...and that's before counting the objects lol) :p

Maybe they are adding a new feature to Bagedit that will enable us to search and change directory targets on the fly. God we would really love that! or a fix-all .bat file we could just run one time, and it fixes everything up.

Tonight's new sky creating right now will be "Canada" it's Quebec City, and is very high def. should look nice in our game I believe. and will be sky #49.

Also would like to note: The skypack will be out this week. I mentioned tomorrow maybe, but it will take  alittle longer. forgot, I need to make screen captures for the Steam page I will have with the new mod, and  create the main preview pic. but this week sometime!  ;D

Ok here is "Canada" sky which is sky #49. hope you guys like this one.

http://youtu.be/uz6TngX0uKM (http://youtu.be/uz6TngX0uKM)

Attention! The following skies will be replaced this week.

Milky Way - looks really bad... seems to be a 2048x2048 res sky with bad banding issues on the sky box edges.
Cold Mountains - what was I thinking? very bad resolution, and just looks like crap.
Norteno - pfft good bye crappy sky!
Summerland - looks really pixilated in areas.

So just need to replace those 4 horrific skies, with much better (8192x8192) ones!
and create one more sky, than I make some screen shots for Steam preview screens, and also upload some vids that thankfully I saved on my hard drive for easier uploading.

So that's it for now! have a great night.

Sky number 50 video is finally completed. please note, this sk is more suitable for the higher based tracks! ie: Sandpit 3, Mixed 3 etc...

http://youtu.be/e5SO1ObNAf4 (http://youtu.be/e5SO1ObNAf4)

Now for the remainder of this week, I need to replace them 4 tracks I stated earlier, make screen shots, and upload this pack to Steam! hopefully before the new WF update rolls in.

Just want to point out real quick... need the right tools to make skies. this program I use for stitching areas and color editing is called "Neo Paint" also this is a preview pic of sky #4
should be pretty cool I hope.  so stayed tuned later for a video of this sky depicted below  :)

Hello and Good Day once again!

Yeah so one of the things I need to stress when creating images for skies, is that you MUST convert the images to .tga format. to be able to be processed with the bimage.exe tool accessed with the build_asset.bat batch file! here is a sneak peek at what I am making now. video coming later today sometime. promise! lol

Well forget the above sky... turned out with way to many lines everywhere... however I just made a new 8192 size texture. all skies in this new skypack will be 8192x8192 size. had to resize the preview pic for you guys... ImageBam complains of very large sizes... so here it is below.

And I will begin work on it.. back laaater!

Sky 14. this one came out much better than another previous version! I even enabled some bypass bleach pass setting in the weather. the effect means more contrast for the sky and environment!

What happens at 25? Some optical illusions in the sky?   ;D

I looked for "psychadelic visuals HD" on a GIS, saw some interesting stuff, but it's probably way too distracting to drive under it. Unless one was suitably medicated. lol

It take my old, old DOS computer all day to draw a popcorn fractal!

I'm not sure if it is fractint, but I did use a fractal program back in the 1990s. A friend used them in his research.

So the vid is ready... huh and to tell you the truth, I do not like either sky that much. the fractal one is by me. I used yFract app which is really fun. and the other sky was found off the internet. both 8k...
but really not that impressed. ahh hell with it, they will stay in the pack. maybe a few will like these 2 skies.

Ok figured out my texture app program a bit more, and...found a great source for sky textures just a bit ago. Time to spice up things a bit! you know, kick it up a notch lol

The vibrant colors are pretty cool - and I usually prefer the ones with brighter lit tracks - but the taillight's glow is cool on the darker tracks too. Maybe if one of those add-ons Bugbear was talking about on twitter could be front lights, we could have night racing.

Note: Don't focus on my crappy driving lol, look to the skies! always my friends... never know what you may discover! look to the skies...
 

Hope my joking comment hasn't made you self conscious about your driving - I'm the last guy who could be critical of someone else's driving - and usually the last guy in the race too.

My excuses -
1. Old fart on Keyboard using 3 year old laptop with lower frame rates.
2. Not really giving a damn about racing - I'm there for the wrecks and the chat humor.
3. Occasionally under the influence of a beer or three.

I just happened to notice that like me, you can't seem to resist taking the occasional jump, and you must point the car at an obstacle at the finish line - then the ai takes over and the car hits something. lol

No worries Zeb, me an old fart as well... and Purple! lol sorry Purple... but yeah, like they say.. the older the wiser hehe  :P

Yeah the tail lights on my darker sky/atmospheres look sick! really cool effect. and heck yeah, me to hopes for headlights someday hopefully! would look awesome to see a car rolling and his lights illuminating everywhere from his crash haha.

And no way! you said nothing that made me worry about my driving techniques. but I did Annalise my driving in a few vids, and figured it must of been my tranny at fault. which I took away the stiff lsd, and switched to normal lsd... haha how fitting, talking about lsd in my trippy skys project!

Some of them look almost like my desktop background images :) Never thought that those would make some interesting skies in Wreckfest. Cool stuff. 23 looks a little odd though. Not sure why. Maybe the geometry...  Here's another trippy idea - "underwater sky"  :o   If the cars then had bubbles instead of dust trails, the illusion would be perfect ;)

Hahaha! we would be driving like Submarines than!

and in other news, I just checked the directory size where this mod is being made, and it's pretty big so far. just under a gig with only 25 skies. they are all 8192x8192.

Óooops! This sky failed. need to make a diff. sky for #37 later on! sometimes this crap happens. in this case, it has jaggies! not smoothed.  whoever made this sky, needs to learn a bit more about anti - aliasing.

Anti-alien-assing?  Just apply a blur. Perhaps two. lol

Maybe you could copy 37B to 37F and 37L and 37R, and have spirals at all points of the compass. Assuming a compass pointed to front, left, right, and back.

Who needs seamless?   Hell, go for up too.   Maybe use some warmer colors. CPU cycles are cheap.

Thank you so much Tonza, and really glad you like so far!

Well well, it is very rare that I ask anyone for help, I like to be self reliant for the most part of my projects. however, I really really want this sky in our game... yet whoever took this panoramic picture had a flaw in the middle section. i really need help in fixing the sky sections that got messed up! and dont worry about the bushes down below, only the middle section is viewable in Wreckfest, unless ofcourse you fall under the map lol! but seriously, please can some one perhaps fix the sky up a bit?

Here is the sky/environment in question.

Hmmm last few days, videos not showing in posts with my Vista, Firefox 43. I just check my gaming computer with Win10, Firefox 47 and videos in posts are showing.

So is this a Vista problem or Firefox to old or something else?

That's weird. I can see the videos, I use mozilla and I've got flash player ver 25. Also on windows 7, I will never downgrade to 10. If you've got adblock, maybe you have accidentally blocked the element?
Anyway, glad you got that sky fixed, I really like it too :)

Hi Tonza  :) Thanks for liking the new "Grim City" sky! it almost did not make it into this skypack! I do have Adblock Plus installed but I never blocked youtube vids before. ahwell, I will figure it out someday.  :)

So beginning work now on a cool one! sky number 5 "untitled" so far. got any suggestions what to name this environment?

got any suggestions what to name this environment?

Since 'Paranal' is taken already, maybe something with 'Chile'. You probably know that already, but that builing is a hotel near an astro observatoy (Hotel Perla de las Dunas)...Maybe that could lead to a name. Something with pearl or desert or dune or .... james bond.  :o  hehe, that hotel was in a james bond movie ;) Aaanyway, nice realistic skys !

Oh! and almost forgot Purple... we had this no video showing on the Bugbear forums a couple or few months back, then one day the problem was gone. hope the issue clears up soon here on the forum the few having this issue. and like i said before, I can see any vids over at Youtube with no issues, and Facebook as well.

I rebooted my gaming computer to Win 7 and it was using Firefox 37 and I see no youtube video in the posts.

So I do the Firefox update, update goes to version 43 that my Vista surfing computer using. With Win 7, Firefox 43, I see no youtube video in the posts.

Next I update Adobe Flash from version 17 to 25, I see no youtube video in the posts.

I check Firefox update again and now Firefox say I can update to version 47 that my Win 10 uses. Now I see youtube video in the posts like I see with Win 10.

So the fix for me is to have Firefox updated to version 47. Now have try it with my Vista surfing computer after I backup my 100+ open tabs.  :P
Title: Re: Daystars Mega Skypack Projects
Post by: Purple44 on March 20, 2017, 11:15:39 AM
Got my Vista + Firefox showing videos in posts again. :)

Vista + Firefox 43 was not giving me the update option when clicking About Firefox option. So I had go to Firefox website to get newest version - 52. Seem version 52 will be last supported version for Vista, "Firefox version 52 will be the last complete update for Windows XP and Windows Vista. Security updates will be released, but no new features".

And I did not loose my many, many bookmarks and was able to Restore Previous Session to get my 100+ tabs back.  :D I always worry doing an update, going screw things up and sometimes I don't like the new features.

Now hopefully missing youtube bug won't show up again before my current 5 year old gaming computer becomes my surfing computer in 2018 and I finally say goodbye to Vista.  :P

This will be sky #8. "Mount Diablo" and I am not sure if I work on it tonight or tomorrow.  but here is a preview of it. I just need to trim a little of the top off, and yay it is already seamless. but still need to cut it up into sections.

Just curious - where is the horizon in Bugbears skyboxes? Is it in the middle as in the attached picture? If so, could aligning the horizon be a solution?
Title: Re: Daystars Mega Skypack Projects
Post by: Daystar on March 24, 2017, 07:45:33 PM
Yep Horizon sits on exact middle, and in bag edit there is unfortunately no adjusting of that... just cube size slider, and also skybox offest (height) which I cannot set below -4000. wish there was a document file, or a wiki page concerning skybox creation within Bagedit.

In other news, I found a replacement for that Moscow environment. this is "Mysteria" and I am certain it will work fine in game  :D yeah yeah it is a bit dark, but I will compensate for that!

Hi again guys... nice and sunny out here in Germany! oh yes back on topic! well,.. some of you might of seen my "Austria" sky/environment from my Mega Skypack v4 pack... I found a better 8k pic of that scene! it is much more vibrant in color, and that one house alongside the mountain is not glitched (rooftop) and I scaled the panorama a bit down. so looks a bit more fitting.  :D any way, had to include it in this skypack I am working on now... here is screenshots of sky #11 (my luck number) "Mountain Pass" had to name it differently incase you have Mega Skypack v4 installed, and sky names would conflict if I kept this as "Austria"

Back later gators with a preview video... and Cheers!

ps. need to experiment later with this environment.. such as bump up the mountains a bit higher to see more terrain.
 
Title: Re: Daystars Mega Skypack Projects
Post by: Daystar on March 26, 2017, 11:33:51 PM
Well good news indeed! I did raise up the lower parts of the mountains, and we can see more new terrain!
as illustrated in the pic below. I had to increase the offset setting via our Bagedit app. usually it is always on the farthest left side the slider. as a result we have better results of seeing more mountains.
(http://i63.tinypic.com/2w2o4y0.jpg)

So here is the video of "North Point" which is sky number 12. have a good night guys!

so just need to cut it all up into sections, and the fun part.. test it out in game!

Have you checked your cpu cooler for dust? Is it working as it should? You should also check for viruses if theres a virus with heavy cpu load. though the rendering is pretty heavy for the cpu.
If your idle temps are around 40 degrees youll be fine, and the 80 degrees is also manageable as long as it's not that high for too long periods of time. if it satrts going over 90 theres something wrong

Just got up from a nap, and checked and it was at 42c. so looks like I am safe. and yeah the fan is pretty clean. when pay day comes which will be Friday I am going to buy a can of pressurized gas, and blow out the gfx card and the other fan over the mother board. also going to blow out the power supply just to be safe.  :)

Daystar, is this before or after  Mount St Helens blew it top in May, 1980?

I was at the kitchen table that morning reading the Sunday paper, the folks were out of town for the weekend. I notice one heck of a thunder storm heading into Yakima. Then things got dark like night time.

I stick my hand out the door and that not rain coming down, that ash!!! I turn on the radio and found out Mount St Helens had blew it top.

Hi Purple... here is info on it.

Had to crop and keep only the top part, because the lower parts showed terrain way to up close for my new WF environment!  ???

just checked my cpu temp again, and it's at 45c now.

Hi Tonza, omg I have so many mods enabled... I would not know where to begin lol! but the AM1 is a nice and heavy car.. perhaps that is why. I mostly use that car (it's my fave) I really do not know this answer sorry.

That must of been one of your most shocking experiences in life Purple, aside from the twin towers 911 incident! I remember that day vaguely, your experience of Mt. saint helens... I was real young and seen it on t.v. also during them times, I remember when a space shuttle blew up and killed all it's members, including a school teacher. these things remain etched in our memories.

(https://orig00.deviantart.net/be78/f/2010/008/6/c/mad__la__contest_entry_by_tvoltage.gif) Crap!!! no matter what I do I cannot get any of my skies to work! I have tried everything. even analyzed Tor's overcast settings and cannot figure anything out! yes I want to update all my sky packs now. but am stuck with this dilemma  :-\ if anyone wants to Bagedit one of my sky packs - feel free to do so, and maybe you can figure it out? I am totally lost, and have so many broken mods (all my mega skypacks) ughhh

Tried speaking with Pritchard or what his name was? He that did most of the weather work, I simply did what he did to get weather's that are already in the game files working.

Thanks for the tip Tor. yeah I will get in touch with him later on today. if worse comes to worse I will just have to copy Bugbears weathers and manually have to add all my 250 skies. which I would hate to do.
Title: Re: Daystars Mega Skypack Projects
Post by: Daystar on April 28, 2018, 11:45:50 PM
Ahh I forgot, I will try to message him tomorrow. maybe STR Mods or some other modder can see why I cannot get my skies to show. time will tell I suppose. Cheers

Well I tried again today, to get one of my skypacks to work, spent 2 hours trying all kinds of ways. and still cannot get it to work!  :-X
I copied all Bugbears weathers into a test mod, would not work. even tried Tors weathers and settings in to a test mod. guess what? not working!
what am I doing wrong? so if there is any modder in here that can get my lowest file size skypack to work, and tell me how in hell they did it, I would be so happy!

here is my smallest file size skypack ----------------> https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=884093033

Well good news! got my own weathers working in Wreckfest again! thanks to Prichard, STR Mods and The Very End!
also more good news, I figured out why my Youtube vids were not that great in quality, I somehow had 1/2 quality enabled in Fraps Oooops!

And now the bad news  ??? for some reason when my car in Weckfest hits fences or lands hard, there is a black puff of smoke! I cannot for the life of me figure it out in the weather settings.
must be in emitter settings somewhere. it does look unnatural. also I completed my 1st mega skypack overhaul, and even corrected some lense flare issues! but I will not upload this skypack
until I get the black smoke issue corrected.

Anyways, here is a preview!

Glad you like it Purple  ;D got 50 in that skypack. so there will be more you like in that mod, when I upload it someday. that is after I figure out why there is black smoke in impacts.

I will also update my other 4 skypacks fairly soon. you do know this skypack was my 1st mod I ever made for Wreckfest, so they get better later on  ;)

Good stuff :) IIRC you can alter the smoke / dust color in the weather setting, but has not tested out this myself.

This makes a big difference in realism!
and yes my original Mega Skypack is going through major changes at the moment.
so this will take a while to get all them 50 skies corrected, and even enhanced more!

Got your weather maps downloaded today, going check them out shortly.

If I were to add some weather maps to my track mod, would I need add the support files in Mega Skypack 1? Seem there a lot more files now beside the weat and skybox files.  :o

I am not sure Purple. have not done that myself. I would like to be able to have your track mods, and Tor's Tracks to be able to use my weathers but how do we do that? the events thing is
confusing to me. would I need to include the whole TheVeryTrackPack mod with all my weathers? just so I can play on his tracks and see my weathers?

Jumbotron work with your Cold Day weather map Daystar. Sun shinning on the jumbotron.  :)

I can use your weather maps with the Fig8 and Very TrackPack track mods loaded. I load Mega Skypack 1 last.

(http://www.lay-zmattress.com/flatout2/purple44/Next%20Car%20Game%202018/track%20stuff/Fir8%20pack/jumbotron-cold-day.jpg)

But for Saturday Night Mods night, like to avoid loading to many mods. I think it can turn some players away from joining if they have to download to many mods. And I would like avoid scrolling through 50 weather maps while guys are waiting in the lobby.

So would like pick a few weather maps to add to Fig8 mod so they ready to go and players don't have load another mod like Mega Skypack 1. But I want to know, do I need to added all these other folders in pic below to have your weather maps work? I know I got have the \weather and \skybox folders.

(http://www.lay-zmattress.com/flatout2/purple44/Next%20Car%20Game%202018/track%20stuff/Fir8%20pack/weather-map-files.jpg)


Are those custom files you tweaked for your weather maps or they copies of Bugbear current weather files? Encase the stock files get change in the next Build release?

Hey Purp  :P yeah I added the lense effects and such, because I had prev. bad issues. which you remember in the past, some of the suns were pinkish. which I corrected and preserved into my Mega Skypack 1 mod.
so we would not see anymore pink suns.  these files are not that large. and I see your point about disappointing players that may need to download my weather pack. I am not sure what to do about that atm.

Excuse me I am drinking at the moment, and lost on a viable solution.

Have a good day Dude!  8)
