About this mod

Stock NMS has few Skies. Stratos has 2,173 Skies, all of them made from a system of mathematical correlations of various complimentation formats.

What is this Mod?
This mod adds to the limited stock sky color palettes with 2,173 new palettes I have designed.  It also creates 1,728 possible night environments. 

The philosophy of the mod is to create extreme variety without sacrificing quality. Despite that, I made sure some of the possible colors are very intense, leaving plenty of opportunity to produce both tame-colored and wild-colored skies. It's entirely possible to find ugly combinations, but even the ugly combos won't be low-quality or untested.

About Available Versions
MBINCompiler version used will be the latest available at the time of updating and most times will match the mod version. Any older mod that is no longer compatible with the current version of No Man's Sky will be demoted to the "Old Files" subsection, but will remain available for download. If I have missed one, please tell me.

This means that any mod files which are not hidden or demoted to the "Old Files" area can be expected to work.

MBINCompiler versions exactly match the version of No Man's Sky that was current when the MBINCompiler was made. In other words, MBINCompiler version = NMS version. This fact can be used to figure out which Legacy mods work with which Legacy versions of No Man's Sky.

Big thanks to any and all of you lovely people who offer donations! It is greatly appreciated, and will help me buy lunch while I'm busy being a broke college student! :D

And, of course, all of the other modders who make mods too! It is very common that I inspect the work of other modders to learn how things are done. RangerDulannRedmasWoodyMontanajasondudeGumskMjjstralmoddinaccount, Devilin Pixy, saa044, and others have all helped me learn how to mod effectively! Without the other people mentioned here and their mods and applications, I would not be able to make any mods at all!
