This is an asset pack you can add to your project extremely easily. Just migrate the full folder "UltraDynamicSky" from the content folder to your project. Drag and drop the BP and it works already perfectly. Allot of settings to tweak in the sun, moon, clouds behavior, and of course a Day & Night cycle.

Whats better, this or good sky?
I have both, and this is by far the best sky system on the whole marketplace. It's more beautiful and atmospheric, also better optimized and more options to adjust that actually work as expected. I'm 100% sure you won't regret it. :)

Hey, thank you for your message.
Yes, I will update it today. Could you tell me how to update this in a project where an older version (4.24) )is already in use?
I tried updating it in the vault menu and then opened the project but it's still the old version.. Do we really need to delete everything and add it from scratch again?!

Hey, The update is done. Let me know if you have any issues with the manifest file.
Also had contact with the creator. Here is his input on how to update:

"The update process is a bit counterintuitive, yeah.
When you press update on UDS in the launcher, it updates the launcher's downloaded version of the files. But it doesn't change anything in your projects. To do that, you'll need to add UDS to the project again, overwriting the old version of the files with the new ones. If everything goes well, when you open your project again, the sky should still be set up as it was, but with the changes from the update present."


Must say this still sucks.. I don't get this system, what is the use of the downloaded files if they are not the files in your project. And what's the point of updating them then..

Thanks for sharing <3 i just copied the "UltraDynamicSky" Folder from the content folder, and replaced it with the folder in my game project, and it got updated in my project :3

but mate this isn't the last version, read the changes log :

6-2-2020
Versions Affected: 4.24, 4.25
  • Fixed "Disable Completely" option for Sky Light component
  • Added a Dawn Time and Dusk Time in Basic Controls, to directly set the Time of Day when the sun comes up and goes down. The default is still 600 and 1800.
  • Added new failsafe to keep moon light from sometimes unnecessarily being used when the moon is out during the day.
  • Generally improved the look of the moon when visible during the day.
  • Reworked logic for moon phase changes. Moon phase will only iterate when the moon is down.
  • Added a function, "Get Time of Day in Real Time Format" which outputs a standard Hours/Minutes/Seconds time code.
  • Added a function, "Set Time of Day using Time Code" to set the current Time of Day using an hours/minutes/seconds time code.
  • Seperated the Soften Clouds variable into Soften Cloud Layer 1 and Soften Cloud Layer 2, for if you want a wispy cloud layer on top of a hard cloud layer, for example.
  • Renamed "Set Solar Angle" function to "Set Sun and Moon Rotation"
  • Moved the readme to a much more comfortable location for easier reading. It's in an Editor Utility Widget, located in the blueprints folder. To open it, right click on the Ultra_Dynamic_Sky_README asset and select Run Editor Utility Widget.
  • Added a Technical Documentation section to the readme. Gives a brief overview of the workings of the materials and blueprints, for users who want to make modifications.

All these new functions doesn't exist, please update if you can <3 thanks again <3

Hey guys, sorry I was away this weekend. But I have successfully updated the pack to 4.25. The download includes all files + the new manifest file.
To update (when already installed in your project) just overwrite the current files via the manifest installer. If you have any questions or issues please let me know. Enjoy!
