Editing terrain and sky

Breakroom's advanced environmental options extend your editing reach to the stars. Learn how to use the Region Editor to control cloud formation, ambient lighting, and the weather.


With Breakroom's Region Editor, you aren't limited to customizing physical spaces. The very elements are also yours to control, allowing you to create sunny, happy office parks or atmospheric nighttime events.
A few slider tweaks allow you to turn this...
...into this.

Editing the sky and atmosphere

From within the Region Editor, click the Sky button located at the bottom of your screen. This will open the Sky editing window.
As you can see, there are many different options to explore. The best way to get started is to play with the sliders and judge the virtual sky effects in real time. As far as control settings, there are a few key items to review.
Sky editing feature
Master Control - Reset to Default button
Clicking this button will revert any custom changes you have made, and restore the region's default sky settings.
Master Control - Override Sky Settings
In order to make changes to a region's sky settings, this box must be checked. If you uncheck it and save your work, the region's default sky settings will be restored.
Clock Settings - Use Fixed Time
If this box is checked, you'll be able to "freeze" your atmospheric settings
at a certain time of day (e.g. sunset) using the slider. If this option remains unchecked, your region will experience an animated day-to-night cycle.
Clock Settings - Synchronize to UTC
If this option is checked, your region's day-to-night cycle will reflect that experienced within the UTC time zone.
Weather Settings - Enable Random Weather
If this box is checked, random weather events will change the sky's color, haziness, and general presentation.
