Sky Box

In my procrastination from working on my uni stuff I put this together skybox thing. I thought it could be cool to use if you made a game where you wanted the background to be spining around (like you were on a space ship or something) but the effect didn't come out as good as I had hoped :( I used the textures from here http://www.scentednectar.com/skyboxes/page1.htm

Download 'muchbetter'. I forgot that skyboxes only work when rendered from the centre, and the 3dbox wasn't moved along the z axis. Also I changed the graphics to the ones used in Irrlicht...its also open source so they shouldnt mind me using that cool skybox texture. I am now happy with the effect :D

lol David, 2D man ... 2D!

Looks good for what it is. Can tell it's box shape, but still effective ...

I'll just stop there ... must ... resist ... :twisted:

That's pretty neat.

I made a minor change to the .cap (click and drag the mouse around):

Yeah I tried using the textures from the skybox in irrlicht and it still looks like a cube...while the cube in irrlicht doesn't look like a cube :S I noticed when you make the box larger the perspective changes a little ... and it kinda reaches a maximium slope...but then it reaches the far plane and vanishes heh...might read over the cvs repository for irrlicht
