# 1 DS9 Update
10-15-2011, 08:58 PM
Change the currently hidious brown starfield around Deep Space 9 into the black, starry darkness that its supposed to be surrounded by. This is the main thing that throws off the whole look, not only would the wormhole stand out more and look better but the lighting on the station would be better.

This is DS9:

Not...this:

Remember how much the change of Earths star background helped the look of the system? It also once was surrounded by an ugly nebula that made no sense. Please change this, its not a overwhelming task.

There should also be more lights in Quarks, and the white lights above the bar where the drinks are served should be lowered down it looks too high up right now:

These are the 2 most notable things, obviously a change of star background would improve the look of the station most significantly.

Edit:

Foundry tool suggestions:

I agree about the lighting, tbh, and I wouldn't mind the actual solar system being a bit more... empty, i suppose.

There's a LOT of solar systems that need to more empty. Damn debris fields and asteroids everywhere...

Yeah, agreed. Space is supposed to be vast, but it's hard to tell with all those nebulae in the way. I mean, credit where credit is due, some of the backdrops are beautiful, but a balance needs to be found imo.

That, and Class M planets looking like gas giants.

All of the newer space maps like the ones in the Featured Episodes they have done have looked beautiful, its the old ones from launch that suck. Their artists obviously have became more talented over time, but hopefully we could see some of these ugly backgrounds phased out.

Not only at DS9, but also the background of K7 and Ganalda are also ugly as sin.
