Yep - the title says it all. Ive finally taken the time to type down the guide on how to make atmospheric backdrops.
I know it may be obsolete - there may not be anyone left out there with an interest in this . But... if anyone IS interested in hosting the guide (it is 2MB due to lots of images) let me know! Id be happy to share it with the world.

Very, very nice! I'd like to see the guides and to know the possibilities atmospheric backdrops open up to modders. I can host the guide as a single file on my webspace so we can put a direct link here, if you like. Or maybe you could ask Darksaber to add it to its awesome website.
If anyone out there has any questions or comments to the guide, please let me know.
I wasnt entirely satisfied with the backdrops I made for Kashyyyk, but I hope to learn from my mistakes . I have recently returned to my work on some backdrops for The Blue Phantom Project, and I hope these will really demonstrate the full potential of using atmospheric backdrops in planetary mission settings.
This is a great guide! But isn't there somewhere you can download some atmospheric backdrops? Are there any upgrades to space backdrops that can be used in the regular campaign mode in XWA? I'm not a modder, but I want to use some of these awesome looking backdrop mods!
Unfortunately only very few atmospheric backdrops has been finished (and released). Mostly due to me being the only one working with this method (as far as I know), and Im usually lazy or busy with other stuff . But since you now have a guide to work from, I challenge you to make your own
