Hey everyone,

I realized that there was a certain lack of night time sky in the original Age of mythology. That's why I created these:



Since I am fairly new to the texturing business I replaced the existing blue sky to create this, but I would love to now if there is a way to create an all new sky file for Age of Mythology EE.

Been looking through Stephen Caines' new skypack and his comments to attempt to reverse engineer it.
Can make my own .brg with HXD hex editor but it doesn't seem to be working.

To attempt to find out the cause I copied 'cloud1.brg' and made 'cloud9.brg' which worked. I then went into the hex editor for cloud9 and changed one of the strings to load a piece of the cloud2 instead of cloud1 (which it is otherwise an exact copy of) and that works fine. But if I try and change the text to anything else (SkyNight) the whole skybox failed to load.

To convert my bmps I converted the ddts and took note of what AoMEd said to reconvert them and used that setting.
(Paletted 16 bit no alpha [2])
Used 256x256 24bit bmps.
I put cloud9 in the data skies xml and converted to xmb as well.

Have annoyingly been able to replace a cloud1 .bmp with one of my own but still unable to create my own sky.
Must be an issue with the hex idea but have no idea what or how to fix!

FIX FOUND,28599,,all

Was to do with the length of characters in the name, made my own brand new sky .
Should probably make a guide or something...

A guide would be lovely.
I had a very hard time creating my first skybox. I ended up replacing the blue sky.
