There's a moon over the off-sim mountains tonight

With this moon and planet system you can add as many moons or planets to your place as you want. They are perfect as a backdrop for a romantic spot or to increase the immersion on sci-fi or fantasy builds. They are ideal for photo shoots, and can be used both at land level and on sky builds. You can get a demo here on the Marketplace or get a real one here . They will be discounted by 20% until Monday November 2. The "3D moon" responds to windlight lighting as if it were 3 3D shape The planets will be very far outside your sim boundaries, and are always behind any off-sim landscape that you may be using, like they would in reality.
