Hi Manny,Day textures are made up of all the sky_*.bmp files in the Textures directory of FSX, however FS9 sky textures are no good for FSX. Firstly they have to be 32bit rather than 24bit and secondly in FSX you have a round earth so the transition from horizon to the blackness of space has to be in the correct proportions, otherwise you lose the correct perception of altitude.Not trying to discourage you of course, just in most cases the skies need to be reworked completely to look as good in FSX.Hope that helps,Chris Norris
