The minecraft sky has always been a thing of interest, if not beauty. Blocky white clouds floating in a bright blue void, interspersed with downpours of dangerously uniform rain that falls everywhere but on you. If you look up, you’ll see that the rain in Spain falls mainly on the plain, but the rain in Minecraft avoids you like the plague. The Better Skies mod, on the other hand, turns the minecraft sky into a canvas worthy of Van Gough.
You can get the Better Skies mod as part of the legendary MC Patcher, which enables you to use all kinds of HD Texture packs.
