I've been checking back and forth unsuccessfully over the last year or two to see if anyone has figured this out, so I may as well just ask.
Is there any way to change the orientation of a district, or the location where the sun rises? Please note I don't want to just rotate a lot or change sky colours, I want to know if it's possible to rotate the entire district or the sun's path itself.
I ask because each district within a given world will have different locations for sunrise and sunset. You can check this out in game. Assuming the sun rises in the east and sets in the west, we can look at each district and determine how they are orientated. Unfortunately, there is no consistency across a given world, leading to weirdness like every district having a different "north", sometimes with a 180 degrees difference to another district on the world map. One example might be Windenburg: the island's "north" is to the right of the screen on the world map, while other districts have north to the bottom right or even the left! This inconsistency might not bother a number of people but it eats away at me to a ridiculous degree and has led to me abandoning attempts to remake the maps three times now. If there's some easy way to correct the issue by having the "North" direction the same in each district, this would help a hell of a lot more than trying to redraw maps, relocate lots and so on.

Have you opened the world files to see if you can fix it? Here's a tutorial on adjusting the skybox which lists the files you need to look at, it should be in here somewhere. You can also try copy/pasting a specific world's sky files you prefer into the others if you don't want to bother researching it and want immediate results. If that info is stored there of course, but it should be.
