How to make a skybox?

Postby fr33dom » Mar 14th, '17, 2:13 pm

Hey, how'd you make a skybox, any good tutorials? Do you need to put the skybox img in /env folder beforehand, will other skyboxes appear in the texture viewer, or does it just take from /texture folders?

Thanks

skybox is declared via shader in q3
there are plenty of tutorials about creating skyboxes from scratch, but you can use existing ones

I'm struggling to find a tutorial, the main problem atm is the bottom texture is giving a hom effect.

HOM sounds like you are using sky, not skybox
google spreads a ton of stuff on 'quake3 skybox' or 'quake3 skybox creation'

the tutorials I find are just about making the images, not entirely sure what I'm doing wrong tbh, I made a room and applied the same skys to all sides, yet in game the bottom shows a hom effect.

skybox isn't only pictures, it's ones + shader
textures/skies/nightsky_xian_dm1 is random example
hom might be result of various issues, like two matching brushes or visibility issue

If you get a HoM effect the sky you are using was mainly created for skies behind windows or ceilings.
If I am not wrong, wasnt there a folder inside the textures called skyboxes? Or was it just the skies folder? If I am not wrong every sky, except the blacksky for the space maps from the original Q3 were only intended for ceilings.
