    The sky on Mars isn't always red, and when it is it looks more like an orangy ting to me. This game and mod aren't supposed to be realistic, so what ever is iconic about the planet is good.

    Does Mars use a different sky than other planets? If so, a texture pack could make the change for now.

    I have a strong feeling the Galacticraft skies are hardcoded, procedurally generated or such. I tried to modify them through resource packs and failed miserably. :(

    Are people still having problems with the Mars sky only visible on far view?

    Well, with the holy power of widescreen one can see past the unavoidable dark illusion and have a partly visibility of the stars and the Sun. The damned fog of far view is precisely on the brink of completely shrouding the entire Martian skybox.

    But yeah, as the skybox does have a depth, I presume the technical reason why the Overworld and that spiral galaxy sprite (the latter not seen in the picture) isn't affected by this is because they are located closer relative to the player's view, meaning they aren't within the fog's range. Although, what kind of customizations the extraterrestrial skies in GC might have received over the vanilla one is something I don't know.

    :eek:

    Absolutely fantastic! Also, could that white spot in the middle possibly be Phobos or Deimos? It would truly be a really cool feature.

    Can't wait to watch the sunset as well.
