Being able to select a specific alternate sky texture
« on: 16 11, 2021, 10:49:50 pm »
Simple, instead of repeatedly clicking on the Sunny weather in /weather until we get the desired alternate sky texture, or keep enable/disable it in /settings. Just add a drop down option with the list of the sky textures, similar to custom crosshair setting. It's a small change but makes life easier.

So your suggestion refers to setting a predetermined climate? because I really don't understand anything

There's a setting in /settings where you can choose between a nice sky texture (which is pink blue etc), a nice night sky texture or default as far as I know. Do you mean something like that? Because if not, then it's just standard GTA SA blue skies with those long clouds (if they're not disabled).

Edit:

So in game you can choose between "blue sky" or "real night" in mta graphics section and also there's "alternate sky shader: yes/no" in shader graphics.

Alternate sky shader changes to a static sky with clouds as far as I can see, which is similar to what's in the spoiler below.
Real night changes the sky at night to a darker blue, close to black & blue sky makes the sky .. bluer.

list of the sky textures

So do you mean this?

It'd be cool to have more sky options, especially for those with PC's that aren't good enough for those graphics mods with realistic skies. However, I'm still not sure if you mean this.. If you do mean something like this I'm sure someone can crop the land out and use it as a sky background for CIT (I'm not sure how the sky texture is displayed in MTASA).

As I understand from you, is that you need a list of s pecefic weather IDs right?
If I'm not mistaken, then why not.
But I don't think players will like this one bcs it's fine.

If I understood you correctly you want to select a weather and you want it to never change again, if I understood correctly "/settings > Game Lock Time > -1" if you do this then the weather will stay constant/forever.

Sorry for any misunderstanding, I probably didn't word it properly.

This is the setting that I'm talking about

So instead of just 'Yes/No', add a drop down menu like this

WTF is so hard to understand? Dude wants to have a certain sky texture from alternate sky shader setting, because right now whenever you reconnect it keeps changing randomly. This way you’ll be able to set one texture you like and it will stop changing. :tick:

I am voting positive for this suggestion, the fact texture always changing whenever we do reconnect.

As mentioned in other comments, it is a little annoying to changing this texture setting every time we reconnect. Thanks to this suggestion, we will get rid of this annoying problem. My vote is positive.

- Improved 'Alternate Sky Shader' in '/settings' to allow you to pick a specific sky box texture. (Arran + 8sianRednek)
