>For Strike Fighters 2 games
This is my sky enhancement mod. It also combines the work of many other modders, to provide a realistic, better-looking sky. Here below a quick summary of the changes:
-Tweaked sky colors, something in between Cellinsky's wide sky and the stock SF2 colors
-More realistic Night colors, sky and ambient are much darker
-More atmospheric, reddish transition from Twilight to Night
-New "dark blue" High Altitude colors (fly near space with a NF-104)
-Moon produces a yellowish light instead of the default purple
-Sky is "wider" much like Cellinsky's widesky mod (background horizon clouds are bigger and more noticeable)
-Added beautiful cloud graphics made by Cellinsky and ShrikeHawk, tweaked for each weather type
-Added a small number of stray clouds to Clear weather
-Added noticeable clouds to Overcast weather and Inclement weather, "fixing" a known SF2 "bug"
-Combined various mods to produce a more interesting Rain Effect under Inclement weather
-Added Stary's lens flare effects from the SARCASM 2 mod, in place of Cellinsky's wide sky effects
-Added Cloud Layer graphics by Stary, Fubar512 and Brain32
-Reworked secondary atmospheric effects, such as contrails and wingtip vortexes
In addition, the package includes alternative environment configuration files in the Alternative Weather folder; they enable different effects for the Inclement weather. You can choose between thunderstorms (default, adapt for most terrains), snowstorms (for cold, icy terrains) and sandstorms (for hot, desert terrains)
For those who wish not to change the effect globally, I highly suggest trying the included terrain-specific environment files, provided for both stock terrains and custom ones I released; the default global effect is thunderstorm, while terrains with their own environment file either use sandstorm or snowstorm as appropriate. Use this as a basis to customize other terrains
This mod is dedicated to BPAO, nothing would have been possible without him.

The ejection seat should be a Martin Baker Mk4 but we don't have this model.So If there is a modder who wants to make it, he will be more than welcome.
A big thank to all on Combatace and C6 forums that helped us solving issues we encountered.
Any omission in credits is totally unwanted, if I forgot somebody, let me know, I will correct this.
