File Name: "Toned-down Stars" for Dangerous Waters (338.7 KB) Download

Description
Version 1.0, 15 April 2006
It's always bothered me that the Dangerous Waters sky has so many bright stars, especially in the transitions between night and day. In this replacement file, I've adjusted the dynamic range of star brightnesses to something I like better. The brightest stars are still bright, but I've made the dimmer stars more dim. The number of stars in the sky remains the same, the difference is that there is a greater range of brightnesses. This is especially evident at dawn and dusk. Before, there were simply too many stars visible in the skyglow. Now, only the brightest stars are visible before sunrise and after sunset.

Installation:
1) The file I've changed is "starchart.dat", in the Dangerous Waters root (main) folder. Before doing anything else, make a backup of this file in case you don't like my version!
2) After making the backup recommended in step 1, simply copy the file 'starchart.dat' from this zip folder to the Dangerous Waters root (main) folder.

I hope you like the change!
