An environment mod that alters clouds, the night sky, and view distance
This mod allows players to change the view distance in Minecraft, allowing the game to load the map up to 64 chunks away. The mod also allows the alteration of much of Minecraft's environment. Included are options to alter the clouds, lunar cycle, stars, sky color, weather, and fog. Also included is a sky box.
All of the following options can be changed in-game using the Mod Options API mod, on which this mod is dependent. Be aware that the view distance setting will, at its maximum, try to load over sixteen thousand map chunks, which will cause a significant performance hit.
All of the options take immediate effect when set or changed, allowing for some experimentation to find the best individual settings while in game.
