I should also note that you can eliminate the skybox pics in SystemTypes.txt. This method will not help when you play on PBW and the game host doesn't do it for the generated map, but it is an alternative for a modder that wishes to axe the skyboxes in a larger mod, due to no increase in file size. It could also potentially save a player on dialup from a lot of downloading.

In Data\SystemTypes.txt, replace this line:

Number of Stellar Background Images := 29

with:

Number of Stellar Background Images := 0

Best to do it in a mod, rather than stock data files.

You got my name wrong Santiago (((

Fyron, are you sure you wont have to change the 'Stellar Background Images Min/Max Per System' settings instead of the 'Number of Stellar Background Images' ?

Default Re: Skybox/Sunglow Mod

Hmm... well, I changed it to 0 and removed them all, and it seemed to work ok. To be safe, you can always mod it to:

Stellar Background Images Min Per System := 0
Stellar Background Images Max Per System := 0
Number of Stellar Background Images := 0
