This mod makes the sun travel from north to south, to match the direction it went in Minecraft Beta. With this mod, clouds go “north” and the sun goes “west”, just like it used to.
If you install Zan’s Minimap, you can toggle between the old and new direction (see the third image)
Current sun direction, rising in the east, which was the south in beta
Old, Beta sun direction, rising in the Beta east, which is now the north in final (ie this is how it used to be)
