Well, on the bright side, no one's said it's awful and I should stop!
I've rejigged the skies for the next version, so they look a bit better. Here's the new E1 sky:
And Map07, showing off the E2 sky:
I've also implemented UMAPINFO and EMAPINFO, so you'll get the new skies on ports that support them. (I'll "bake in" the front skies for ports that don't support parallax skies, but it shouldn't matter, since they wouldn't get the scrolling effect anyway!)
