This seems really useful but it's unfortunately won't work for any recent versions. Could you make a version for 2021.1 EAP (03117)?

I want to make space mod and I have a dimension called space; but the sky looks bad even though I set the time to be night all the time in the space dimension. Since there is still a moon on the sky. The resion I am telling you this is because you made some of the best MCreator plugins. So culd you please make a MCreator plugin that lets you change the sky (like on a biome or a dimension). Also my mod is on MCreator 2022.2; so I would be happy if you made the plugin for MCreator 2022.2 too.
