Night sky with moon skybox

Submitted by ikillforeyou
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
A skybox for "night sky" you need to use this action.

  • Environment - Set sky to war3mapImported\MoonySky.mdx


the top is all strangely wrapped, but all skyboxes look like that on the top, don't reject it for that one reason.

i may take some skybox requests, if i like them, and someone needs them.

Made moon 70%

PS: what model type should i pick and catagory?

Edit: Added skycylinder: "MoonySky_Portait.mdx"

Keywords:

    Would have been better if it was a sky sphere. But yeah, it's awesome.

    Skyboxes were used back in older games (Lets take one of my favorite games: Star Wars: Jedi Knight 3 Jedi Academy into example).

    You would have the objects ingame, your map, bla bla bla, and if you went out into the edge of the map, you would see a pretty low quality (or high quality, depends on the game) background image, and the model would consist of a box, with the background textures. They however would tend to make it impossible to see the textures connect at the edges of the box, else it would look weird.

    WarCraft 3 uses Skyboxes, thats why if you do View Ingame Settings, and zoom out alot, you'll see the skybox.

    World of WarCraft uses Skyspheres, which is the same thing, except its in a sphere, and looks more realistic.

    A little yellowish moon might be better, cause you know, the sun rays. Also there needs to be a lot fewer stars like only several should be seen, and different brightness/magnitude, like you may order them in some constellation but it's a thing never done before, so it;s nice to have when someone wants to use

    This is really cool. If you make a sphere somehow and avoid the awkward edges I would give 5/5.

    I have there a little suggestion. maybe you could look at the underground dome model from Icecrown Glacier ... it is under cinematic doodads. I have experimented alot with this dome, changing the texture and so on. It is worth to take a look at it. ;D
