Hi! A WIP of night and day cycle. Many things have to be improved, but I don’t know if I’ll continue this stuff. Nevertheless, I share this file with you:
Important: You will need a 2.74.5 or > Blender’s version to run the file properly.
The night skybox is an adaptation of this shader (flickering stars): https://www.shadertoy.com/view/lsXGWH (from Beautipy)
The clouds is an adaptation of Martins Upitis cloudy skybox: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ajg8Xi9hGVE
I added a sun and a moon mixed to the cloudy skybox and another skybox to simulate sunset.
I also used the new world API to animate horizon color.
- Better colors.
- Random clouds (amount…).
- Adapt all the code to synchronize transitions with day length.
- Better transitions.
- Better effect with the moon at the end of the night.
- Enlighting clouds (I mean make shadows effects on the clouds)(I don’t know how to do that)
- Code optimization.
Please tell me what you think about this, if it runs correctly on your computer, any feedback/suggestion. Thanks
