Welcome to StaudSoft's Synthetic World 0.2! It allows you via a seed to create a unique landscape with mountains, oceans, trees and beaches. Although it looks like a normal game engine, everything in the game is based on voxels. So everything you see can be changed. You can cut down trees, build a house or dig into the ground!

The sky is an analytic model which simulates the physical effects of the real sky. In the night stars will apear. The sun movement is the real movement of the sun above munich, germany.

agreed, last thing u can see in the dark is the tree leaves, theres no ambient light so theres no reason to have them lit, however main issue with day night is, you cant just run around in the dark thats not fun, so perhapse give the player a lantern for at night, and make it full dark for the plantlife.
