Hi, while searching for information on how to implement day and night cycle transition in sky dome, I stumbled upon the SkyX, a sky and clouds plugin for Ogre. However the SkyX version 0.4 download links at its site are no longer available:

The links given in the announcement post by the SkyX creator are also not available:

Does anyone know if the SkyX plugin is still available?

There is link to downloadable SkyX in theme you've given your link to, on last page in frostbyte's post (fedoraproject one):

Also there is Caelum in OGRECave: https://github.com/OGRECave/ogre-caelum

For the simpler day and night cycle transition, I followed the instruction in this post regarding transition between two texture of skydome using shader and it worked :):

Just need to change hlsl to cg, target ps_1_4, vs_1_1 to profiles arbfp1 ps_1_4, arbvp1 vs_1_1 for the fragment program and vertex program respectively for Linux. Then some tweaking of the parameters to change animation speed, texture scaling, and transition speed.

But a more robust sky and weather plugin will be worthy to investigate.
