    Default Sky Projector Weirdness

    Hi, I noticed something strange with the Space Sky Projector from loyalty and the Nightmare Saga projector, see images below... Before I decided to post this I ran a full driver update on my graphics card and tested them again. This is happening in any dimension I visit with these skies. I invited a friend into one of my dims and they can see the same issue. My video quality settings are on Ultra.

    That's not what it's supposed to look like?

    BTW: The Starry Night Projector has the same issue (and it now has planets where no planets should be, just a layer of stars over it, and a moon that seems out of place...)

    Yes i noticed the starry sky had moon but since i had seen only once i didnt say anything. But i was happy it would bug the wind and snow from Icewatch outlook as the pyramid and other blocking rain/snow block were not working!

    I also created a topic with the Space sky projector going a bit wacky.

    It still looked fine for me when you posted that, but you described something else, so maybe I just didn't notice the tube thingies...

    Thanks for the report, that doesn't look right. On it!

    Thanks so much. I was so proud of my Nightmare Saga Projector, laid it down, and the squiggles are a real turn off.

    Such a shame, because it's a beautiful sky otherwise.

    I know giving an ETA on a fix is not the standard, but...

    Is there an ETA on when things might get back to normal, so far as the sky projectors go?

    The Nightmare Saga projector looks amazing again.

    Wow, look at you, Starry Night Sky! (The planets are still there, but I'm loving this change to the ugly squiggles.)

    Edge of Infinity. I think you guys made me love this dimension again just for that gorgeous sky.

    Is it just me, or do the skies now have a bit more contrast/color intensity than before they broke it? In any case, your new screenshots look good...

    It does appear that way. I take screenshots in ultra, but it looks to me sort of like the nightmare saga and EoI skies were somehow blended. I don't know if it's intended or not, but I'm really liking it--and hoping that most others do, so they don't feel the need to fix it again (although I might not object if the planets suddenly disappeared from the Starry Night).
