You know how to remove the colorful horizon on a planet ?
I have difficulties to the remove, the horizon...
This is my only worry, The planet could be already available, if I did not have this problem

Nice stuff!

It would be a hazy red because of the heat.
Because it has almost no atmosphere to retain heat, Mercury's surface experiences the greatest temperature variation of all the planets, ranging from 100 K (−173 °C; −280 °F) at night to 700 K (427 °C; 800 °F) during the day at some equatorial regions.

Since Mercury has almost no atmosphere, you'd barely see any color gradient in the sky, quite looks like the Moon, not exactly like. A reddish-black something like RGB: 24,0,0 would be suitable.

And water only if frozen.

I added some pics. ^

Scientifically speaking, heat itself is invisible, unless matter is about to reach the melting point but it's the matter that is emitting visible light (Incandescence).

But for a game, a bright red fog is a way to tell the player the place is hot.

Remember that Mercury is rotates relatively slow, so a day on Mercury will go by very slowly.
1 Mercury day = 58.646 Earth days, in Minecraft terms it would be 19.6 hours or 1,407,504 tics.

It would be so damn hot during the day that you'd be toasted if you take off your suit, and very cold during the night that you'd get Mining Fatigue and Slowness (maybe withered away).

Basically, make it forever day.
