I don't recall keeping the original textures, as they made the Moon much too large for my taste. But I'll have a gander among all possible media where they *might* still be found--if I didn't actually delete...

I took a photo of the moon then resized it to 512x512 with IrfanView, changed shade to a bit purple then saved as TGA file (Moon0000.tga place in _tex\moon\) but IL2 is not reading it. I noticed the file is 769KB while the moon TGA files by WxTech are 1025kb. Does anyone have any idea what I'm doing wrong?

**I found I had changed some maps load.ini moon tga to moon0000 instead of moon0001 so some maps were loading moon0000.tga and others moon0001.tga. All good now.

Anyone feel free to use this pic of the moon, taken in southern hemisphere so upside down for most maps except new guinea etc

The "moon" folder texture files are inside the... MapMods\maps\_Tex\moon ...section

it is made up of 25 skin files. Targa"tga" format. In sizes 512x512 size.
Each skin file is named from moon0001 -to- moon0025.
All images are placed Upside-down and reversed on the skin-file.
Depending what time/hour it is used in the game (in the sky) , you will see a different moon texture skin.

You can use any skin texture you wish. .. Any planet in the Solar system you wish too, if that is what you might want to play around with.

Since the MOON does not rotate, you only see one side, you can take a photo of a full moon and with Photoshop
you can add the shadows to your moon photo and create your own skins. Remember... you need 25 skin file textures done in TGA format.

Here is an idea for the shadows...

If you want your moon to rotate, you can also do that.  ;) (with Photoshop)
Just do some special effects with your moon images like TFH did in his internet videos...

as requested

This new "Moon Mod" was created by TT. - All credit goes to TT.
It was originally posted on January 28, 2012.

The original link as since been deleted and gone, so I am uploading this for those
game fans who wish to see their game moon with a little more resolution and a little bit bigger.

=== DOWNLOAD === http://www.mediafire.com/download/npbpqur47rry86o/MOON_Texture_Mod.7z

This Moon Mod folder goes into your game in the following manner...

MOON\Maps\_Tex\moon

Just copy the folder and place it into your Modded game.

---------------------------------------------------------------
Take notice...

I have done some "for fun" changes to my game and I am including some other
skin textures in this moon folder.

They have a "-" (minus sign) on their names.
When you wish to change the moon texture, just write a "-" minus sign in front of
a moon skin texture (so the game will not read that file) and rename one of
my new textures with the same name as the moon texture skin.
- This way it will appear in your game skies at sunset, or at night,  or in the early morning sky.

My new texture files are named...

- Death Star (from Star Wars)
- Earth2
- Saturn
- MoonCities

---------------------------------------------------------------
Cheers and have a good flight at night looking at the moon.
MAX

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

If you believe this moon version is a little bit too large for your game skies,
a while back our good friend WxTech, also created his version of the Moon Mod...
here... http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,40517.msg453683.html#msg453683

Give it a try also if you want to use that version.
