Removing stars from nebula environment
So I'm a bit stumped right now.

I'm finishing up a cutscene where at one point it takes place in the nebula. Upon arriving in the nebula, I noticed the skybox was still active. I went back and after some searching I tried to use set-skybox-model set to default. This removed the skybox, but replaced it with what I assume is starfield.pof. Is there a way to remove the stars, or maybe a black .pof file somewhere in the files that I can use (assuming that would work?)

Screenshot to show what I mean.

You mean only the skybox, not the suns, right?
For the skybox it's a bit tricky as the nebula has its own background. The easiest way to work around that is to have no skybox by default and specify the normal non nebulae skyboxes through SEXPs, then reset to "default" in the mist.

Ah, I'll give that a shot.

EDIT: That fixed it. Thank you! :yes:
