"Cloudy/rainy/stormy - not necessary to change." Does that mean cloudy skybox textures are not improved? Shame, because of what compression mess they are...

I'm not entirely sure how the engine handles the db files. But when I look at the names you gave them, I'd say it's never a good idea to have commas in them - at least in my experience with development.
On the other hand, I guess loose files will always override db files. When there are textures in the gamedata folder (i.e. by other mods) they will probably override those from the db folder (in theory). I would first rename the files to have no commas or other special characters included, and then test it again, making sure there aren't textures overriding the same files.

Also maybe the weapons and weather textures should go into the main db folder instead of addons folder. Just an idea. And is there by any chance some config file that can be used to force load db addons? Maybe that works, if the things don't help?

In this weather you can still count the pixels, not your fault ofc but yeah... can this reasonably be improved?

The issue that you are encountering is known as 'Color Banding'.

I spent around 14-15 hours purely editing all the Skybox textures, (in addition to everything else that was required), to minimize/remove this issue as much as possible.
- And as if that was not enough, merely compressing the textures after can easily introduce new issues of this kind...

----
Thanks for the feedback. Will address this when I get some free time, and probably release a small patch.
- Considering that at every hour there is a different Skybox texture displayed, it would help to know the exact TIME when this issue occurred for you.

In short, I can improve this, and I want the Anomaly skies to be the best they can be.

-------
P.S. make sure to install the 1GB download option, that has link in the description.
- It is the latest and most complete download option. And it also contains many improvements and less ColorBanding.

Ah I did indeed not use the google drive links but the moddb one. Maybe this issue doesn´t even exist with the google drive version.

As for the time, it was ~20 minutes after starting a new game, that´s all I can say.

EDIT: Yeah since cloudy/rainy/stormy is the update DB from google drive this was just vanilla stuff, so best to disregard this for now.

The base addon IS the latest version. 1.03gb. Contains everything.

(It WAS in the description, but then I updated the addon itself.)

" For 1.5 Final and the betas (RC15+), or Update4 Hotfix8.

This .7z file default extracts the files in 'Anomaly\db\mods'. -- And this works well for 1.5 F/b.

-- For U4H8, move the three .DB files to be in 'Anomaly\db\addons'. "

There seems to have been a change in sky textures in the RC23 update.
The 21 files in the af3_a_clear folder were changed.

Would you be able to update the mod as well?

I'm sorry, I made a mistake. I unpacked your mod and found that it doesn't conflict with any of the files that were changed in this update.

Thanks for doing this, they look a lot better. I still experience some issues though with pixelation/over saturation mostly on blowout and certain night sky textures, anything else that can be done to resolve this?

I spent many hours hand-editing the various textures, for higher quality. - This is in addition to everything required for the upscaling.

On my display, the improvements are very significant.

-------
Posting some screenshots of the issues you encounter, and the time of day (in-game) may help.
- I'll see what I can do.
