    this addon a genius sky-making system.

    If it were true, you couldn't buy it for $10.

    Finally a sky system for blender with clouds and clouds that cast shadows! It's simply great

    Cheap, but pretty and easy to use, plus it works flawlessly with the Sun Position add-on. The night skies especially are gorgeous - and like the daytime sky it changes as the moon crosses the sky. It's actually pretty realistic - still a bit stylized, but not too toony unless you lower the detail, everything still leans towards mostly realistic. Sunset clouds were a little too red for my taste, but easy to fix with an HSV node.

    Two complaints:
    1) The night sky and day sky are entirely separate separate world systems in separate blend files. It wasn't too much trouble to combine them, even setup a driver to switch to night when the sun goes down.
    2) There's no overcast/stormy setting. This was a mistake on my part, nothing says there's an overcast or stormy sky, but if you buy this expecting one, realize you'll need to hack one in yourself.

    That said, the nodes are all very clearly labeled and organized so anyone familiar with the world/shading node editor should be able to modify and extend its functionality as needed after studying it a bit. I've had fun with it.

      Hi, thanks for your kind feedback. I did actually make a stormy sky, dm me if you'd like a copy. I'm also considering turning it into an add-on to make it easier to setup, update, switch sun and moon and for users less savy with nodes.

    This add-on is a sleeper gem! Probably the best procedural skies I've seen on Blender Market. The clouds actually look real, and can be tweaked a bit more to your liking. The sky colour controls work great especially as they automatically adjust to the sun elevation (which is easily controlled by a Sun lamp). This feels like a customizable HDRI but without the eating up of your comp memory! Love it!

    I give it 5 stars for the quality and amount of value you're getting just for $10!! Just a headsup though, all adjustments are made not in an add-on panel, but in the world shader. It's rather easy after fiddling around with it. I do think there needs to be a more explanatory video (with audio or captions) on setting up in existing project. But once it's running, and you figure it out, it's gold! Especially the Day sky.

    The night sky is great. The default clouds give off a bit of a weird black and blue auro in some spots, but you can remove the multiply/add nodes and adjust the cloud settings to make it more realistic or to your liking. Things are well labeled and understandable once you're in the shader and I felt comfortable adjusting things even though I'm a beginner.

    Great job!

      Thanks so much for you in-depth review. I hope to make a tutorial soon. It was delveloped in preparation for a couple of projects so its just a matter of time, cheers.

    This is a really nice and simple to set up sky, very fast in Eevee for me. I appreciate that it works with the Sun Position addon. It would be nice if the group exposed more controls so you didn't need to go into the node editor to edit the color ramps and cloud controls, but that is a minor thing.
