Seeing The Light I think most people are loving the new skies since the latest update. The colours are more varied and change with the shifting moods of the day. Thank you! I have noticed something weird about the sky at sunrise and sunset. It's not immediately obvious what's different, but I think I've worked out what it is... The colour of the sky at any height above the horizon is uniform for 360 degrees of rotation. This is strange and not how the sky looks in the real world. It would be great if the red/yellow area of the sky was more centred around the rising or setting Sol - giving a patch of red-orange light around the sun. The opposite side of the sky would be a more blue or grey colour.
Those of us who occasionally leave our mines and look toward the sky have noticed that the regular eclipses of Sol by Jackal no longer occur. In fact the motions of the moons are significantly different since the release of the new client. The backdrop of stars has shifted too. Before I invest *alot* of time in screen shots, vector algebra and spherical trigonometry it would be good to know if these changes were deliberate or if they just happened inadvertently. The latter is a very real possibility since a change in direction of star motion was one of the last fixes put in before the client release. The star motions weren't automatically right in the new client so it is reasonable to think that active attention would have been required for the moons as well. And the nature of their current motions opposite that of Sol and the stars inclines me to think they could use a correction too. Could someone on staff please drop a reply indicating whether or not the new motions of the moons are the intended ones?
Those interested in the Wurmian sky should make a note of an upcoming conjunction of all three of Wurm's large moons. Best viewing will be at about 20:00 on Wrath day, week 3 of the Raven; moons will be nicely grouped in the Eastern sky shortly after sunset at that time. But any time within a few (Wurm) days before and after best viewing the sky should still look interesting. This will occur more or less in the middle of Apple season so if you are out and about harvesting apples, get out from under the trees somewhere with a view of the Eastern horizon. According to my forecasting It is 20:00:00 on Wrath day in week 3 of the Raven's starfall in the year of 1063. Jackal: alt=+17.7, azm=-92.3 Seris: alt=+32.2, azm=-74.0 Valrei: alt=+11.0, azm=-85.9 This event is probably as good as they ever get. Assuming of course that the new client retains the current moon positions if it is released in the interim. Last time I looked the test client showed the moons in different places than the production client. FYI the corresponding terrestrial time is approximately 2017-01-23T08:07:13.750-0600. So early afternoon for western Europe and morning for central USA.
Hello, I would like the ability to tell if my friends are looking toward the ground, straight ahead, or toward the sky. Please add the ability for the player's character model to tilt in the direction they are looking. Thank you, (If this already exists please tell me how to turn this feature on.)
