Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Sun Going Behind Sky Sphere

So i successfully managed to change out my cloud textures, and add in a happy little sun, however it seems that the sun keeps going behind the sky sphere itself at certain times of day, it seems to be related to camera position. Heres a Pic of my issue

hey man ill do my best to explain what i think you should do. I am not a professional, i am self taught, and ive been celebrating an aniversary all day so i may not be totally sober, however what i can see is that you should do a skybox image node, using the blue channel of your light direction vector from the directional light acting as your sun, i just duplicated the origional skybox material and used that light direction vector, but you need to invert it with a one minus

use another skybox image with the same settings for your mask, your moon is moving but your mask is static from what i can see
