This mod makes a number of changes to make storms feel more natural and realistic:
- Transitions of storm effects (stormy to clear and vice versa), as well as storm-related cloud coverage changes are much slower and more gradual. It no longer seems as if someone just pushed an “INSTANT STORM NOW!” button;
- The maximum cloud coverage during storms is increased from around 85% to 100%;
- The duration of storms is doubled but the time in between storms has also been increased;
- Storm warning time is greatly increased, from 25 seconds to 2 minutes.
Furthermore this mod doubles the duration of days and nights.
As a little side bonus, I made the atmosphere seen around distant planets in space is a bit thinner, as they look rather too thick in vanilla NMS.
This mod is incompatible with other mods that modify GCSKYGLOBALS.GLOBALS.MBIN
There can be no wind without an atmosphere! So let’s remove all that flying dust from no-atmosphere planets.

Natural Blue Water mod fixes the weird and garish blue water to have a much more natural shade of blue, while also allowing the water to better reflect the colour of the sky.
This mod gives all of your skies a (much) more natural look and feel by softening some neon colours, and darkening upper skies and cloud bottoms.
It also fixes the overly white fogs during rainy weather and storms seen in certain sky colours.
Now also contains an optional add-on mod to give your sunsets and sunrises a more natural look and feel.
This mod is incompatible with other mods that modify DAYSKYCOLOURS.MBIN for the main file and DUSKSKYCOLOURS.MBIN for the sunset/sunrise add-on
Had enough of constantly being stalked by environmentalist sentinels during your routine grind for resources? Well, weep no more, because this mod will make those pesky hovering mini robocops things totally oblivious to whatever you’re doing with that beamy mining laser thingy of yours. Finally you can destroy the environment in peace, woohoo!
This mod is incompatible with any other mods that modify GCROBOTGLOBALS.MBIN
This mod increases the intensity of sunlight, making all landscapes (and even spacescapes) look more vibrant.
Snow can be searingly bright at high noon times, desert and beach sand will look more vibrant, planets in space will look more luminous and so on.
Spaceship landings in No Man’s Sky have always looked a bit silly, just dropping to the ground at 10+ feet. This mod aims to make landings look and feel more careful by reducing the “drop height” to about 2 feet. Aside from that, the spaceship will not tilt its nose up so much during the landing descent.
